Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Front page

Front page
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.


Add more links to front page?


Rosetta Code is a great resource but at 70000+ entries it can be overwhelming. I think a few links to popular tasks (maybe Fibonacci numbers and 99 bottles?) would help casual browsers get started. I have been using Rosetta Code/Count examples/Full list to navigate the site. Rosetta Code/Rank_languages_by_popularity/Full_list is interesting too. Both of those could help people find what they are interested in. Garbanzo (talk) 06:37, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

It can be a little difficult for newcomers to learn the ropes. I think those particular pages are useful also, but I am pretty biased. The front page is locked for editing though, and even if it weren't, those are not infrastructure pages. They are user produced and posted so if the user generating them is no longer able to, they will quickly bitrot. As an aside, another page I find exceptionally useful is the Recent changes page. Monitoring there early on helped me to get up to speed. --Thundergnat (talk) 21:34, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
There are a few things I'd like to be able to find. For instance I believe that somewhere there is an explanation of the --~~~~ but I've no idea where. Update: Ah, maybe I was thinking of mediawiki:Signatures --Pete Lomax (talk) 14:37, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
