> Well, I'd love to see what is linked to in that bug report to see what was being thought of before. The link (along with a few other links in the tracker) go to a locked resource. Either way, I think points two and three for what should be on the About page should be combined; the site was made because of the philosophy so there really is no need to create more fluff. I really think the intro video did a great job of getting the point across, the real question is how many people watched it. That video would be a good base of information to start with for building the page I think.

I'm happy to have a look at the video, to make sure our about page complements and doesn't contradict the video. But I think what I've already written is ok (others agreed, too.)

> The bug report is simply to remove the extra "More" link altogether since it is redundant (and confusing.) The second "point" I'm assuming is the last question which actually shouldn't have been sent, that was my mind working while I typed ;) . What it *meant* though is "Should any navigational element have multiple links to the same place with different names?" since it seems like a bad way to do things to me.

Ah, ok. This makes sense now then! Thanks for the clarification, and yes, I agree.
