    Could you make an argument for why they should remain on the homepage? As I said yesterday, no other organisation I’ve seen releases press statements on their homepage. There’s usually a press section on a website.

    • Jack can you be more precise about exactly which posts you would prefer not to see on the homepage and why.
      “press releases”is a bit to generic for me.

    Press releases are coming off the Homepage. I think that they should go where press releases should go (not facing the public). I’m also going to start being stricter on what categories people tag their posts with. The scattergun approach isn’t the best way to target content.

    I would make a strong case for all the current WGs emails to be on the list. I think privileging a few is creating a power hierarchy.

      Jack. May I ask who decided to move it to the bottom? The current one was the original layout I had created. Someone else moved it to the bottom of the page without consulting anyone else. Sorry. Will not go down this road. Happy to add any other WG if they wish. No-one has asked for it.

    I don’t think we need to move it. Who would make such a decision, I would make a strong argument for the website group to do so. How was the decision made to choose the current way the box is laid out, surely we should make this decision the same way.

      I do not agree that the box should be moved. There is also no consensus that a thing like this needs consensus. So I think we cannot decide this as a website working group.
