This really needs to state that the Org-mode mailing list is
subscriber only. Membership is open, but that users should subscribe
prior to posting. The Worg page for the ML says that.

As a second request, can we get a link to Worg on the top level bar?

FWIW, I just slightly updated this page with this paragraph:

If you are not a subscriber to the list, you can still send an email
to emacs-orgmode@gnu.org, we will add you to the whitelist of people
who can reach the list.

> As a second request, can we get a link to Worg on the top level bar?

I'd rather let Timothy decide on this, as he has the whole picture.

Thanks,

Thanks Bastien :)

Hi Russel, while I appreciate the significance of Worg, I currently
don't feel that adding it to the header improves the site.

There are two concerns I have on this.

1. I'm very wary of "header creep", see https://0x0.st/iFS7.png for a
   mock up of an "extreme" example.
   IMO the current state is "bulging", with 4-6 items as the ideal.
   Adding Worg would take us to 8. In addition to the increased number
   of visual elements, it also lessens the individual significance of
   the per-existing items. If a "features" item has 3 other items, it is
   much more emphasised than when it has 7 other items.

   This is just a long winded way of me expressing the view that adding
   to the header affects the perception of the rest of the header, and
   thus the overall effect may be negative, as I suspect it would be in
   this case.

2. Worg is usually linked to in very specific instances, e.g.
   "(scientific) papers [about Org]", "The FAQ", "Using Org as a
   spreadsheet".
   It is also often linked, 11 times on the index page for instance.
   This makes me suspect that there is not sufficient benefit in adding
   it to the header.

I could well be missing something obvious, but those are my current
thoughts.

Interesting article, albeit a little old maybe, here:

https://www.humanfactors.com/newsletters/breadth_vs_depth_we_revisit_this_question.asp

Conclusion is that there is no conclusion.

Sounds about right 😂.

One could argue that "Releases", "Updates", and "Install" should be
merged into a common download link. They all are the same thing. ;]

I completely agree with you that not everything can live in the
header.

However Worg is a key component because it's community maintained
documentation. Not just anyone can upload to the main site, but Worg
is as "wiki" as we have. As an integral part of the community
supported documentation I thought it should be in the header.

I'm not suggesting any other header spam. ;]

Hmmm. "Updates" seems like a bit of a special thing, but perhaps some
merging could happen sensibly. If that could be worked out, I'd
definitely be much more receptive to the idea of adding another link.

Oh good :)

I do see your point. I think in order to warrant being presented as a
one-step-from-the-homepage target it would be good to tidy up the Worg
homepage.

At the moment I suspect it would be a bit overwhelming to newcomers ---
everything splurged onto on page seems a bit much :P

How does that sound?

Timothy.

That's a valid criticism. Worg's main page could use an update to look
more like the main site.

Does Worg's landing page updates need to be addressed before we link
to it in the header?

Any improvements to Worg will require additional volunteer efforts and
will take some time.

Not linking it as an important part of the Org site could contribute
to continued inattention.

I leave it up to you. I value your work revamping the main site, and
you are clearly much more skilled in HTML presentation of information
than I.

Thanks.

I'd like to see it get a little attention along those lines before hand,
yes :)

As it just so happens, I've previously volunteered ;)

All the best,

Timothy.

Then I defer to your expertise! Though I can help organize and edit
some Worg content, I despair that I cannot make it pretty.

Could you itemize some suggestions for what would make Worg worthy of
a header link? Perhaps others can help address those concerns.

You have, and I respect your efforts! I also wouldn't volunteer you,
you have to do that yourself. ;]

Again I'm happy to help organize and cleanup, but I have no talent for
appearance. If you choose to spend time on it and could use a hand,
let me know.
