Re: Proposal for updating links on

Well, there should be an "about" page [1] since that issue has been 
sitting for quite a while.  That should be the "philosophy" if there is 
to be a page for it.

The more link also needs to go [2] since it is a UX nightmare. There is 
no reason to have multiple links go to the same area in the same nav 
menu with different names. Should it ever have a different name in any 
navigation item?

I also don't think we need a link to the stewards in the main 
navigation. There is a block of text lower down in the page going to the 
stewards page and then the footer logos on every page.
