So, adding an "About/philosophy" page to the site, and changing one of the links in the main navigation to "About" - yup, I think this is definitely a good idea.

I am happy to draft this. What do we need on there?

1. More detail about what webplatform is
2. Why the site was created 
3. Philosophy behind it

Anything else?

Sorry - I read the bug, but I don't know what other page you are suggesting adding here - it is as if a part of the explanation on the bug is missing? Can you elaborate on this second point?

Yeah, I agree really - I was just throwing it out there as another idea. But your reaction confirms it in my mind as a bad idea.
