I have created a "sticky" topic here. Discussion may continue there.
I have made a few changes, moved the history down.... Im still unsure of the drama, etc.
It has stuff written by tank, fincs and me. I really appreciate the input, please continue.
Thanks

The tenants of this product will not change
I don't think you meant that. This product is not a rental property. Perhaps you meant "tenets". What's "this product"? I think "the project" is more fitting, since it covers not just the AutoHotkey program, but the forum and website. However, I'm not really sure what you're trying to say.

(I don't have time to review more at the moment...)

Hmm, I wasn't sure about that too :P I got that from tank... :P

How about this?
Some users[??] of this project will not {????never????} change.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time, it is greatly appreciated.

Is that relevant to "Our Mission"? If it's from something tank said, maybe he should explain what he meant. Like I said, "tenets" makes more sense in this context (and has a completely different meaning).

perhaps it is or isnt ill let more literary minds boggle that.
but i thought it was relavant to the statement of who we are as a free software and forum. but i am perfectly open to removing it

That being the case, joedf's wording suggestion and my question about its relevance can both be forgotten. Your original point was relevant, though worded incorrectly.

While i do agree the autohotkey.com home page needs changing and updating.
does it warrant the amount of content of ahkscript.org which served the dual purpose of explaining who we are? I personally would love to see a simple Home page with some sort of stylish buttons for
search
forum
download
about - this could potentially be a page similar to ahkscript.org
Some logos of endorcements that would link to statements made about us on other sites
and a copyright and license footer.

I wont have time to do it this year but maybe we let the community come up with something and we pick the best 2 or 3 and take a vote on the winner?

Why not just remove the "Why ahkscript.org?" paragraph, update a few of the links and remove some of the resource links (the now duplicate ahkscript.org/autohotkey.com links to fora sections).

Thee endorsements are very old and pretty much useless as they all say the same: you can automate stuff, its useful and saves you time. All of that is present already. Just replace it with a link to why AHK is Awesome - :?:

@Guestt: That sounds like what I've suggested to joedf:
I wrote:I would say the "Why ahkscript.org" section can go away, and some of the links need updating.
Thanks for the other suggestions.

The ahkscript.org homepage isn't to my taste, but it's not something I personally want to spend time on. Most of the information on it is useful, but it's a bit too "noisy" (especially having two columns). The current autohotkey.com page, while less useful, I find much cleaner and easier to read. My idea would be a more "dynamic" page with the same information but with better structure and some of the information hidden by default.
