I'd do: 1. a welcome text before the box explaining what OSArch means - "Welcome to the OSArch WIKI. The resource and workflow database of open and accessible software for the Architecture - Engineering - Construction fields, maintained and developed by professionals actively using these tools for professional work."JanF (talk) 19:13, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
2. a different structure of the main menu: 1. Overview of open source AEC software (I'd split the first point, I feel like most newbies will get confused here) 2. Open AEC resources 3. Open source AEC workflows 4. Technical standards and solutions (OpenBIM and IFC falls under here) 5. How to contribute the OSArch community. I'd remove "Software specific resources" altogether, I find it too wide. In my opinion we should for example link: BlenderBIM articles under 1. Overview of open source AEC software > BlenderBIM > ..., FreeCAD under 1. Overview of open source AEC software > FreeCAD > ..., Revit under workflows? What is it supposed to represent? How to round-trip with revit? JanF (talk) 19:13, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
3. I'd also like to rename the "Main page" to something like "OSArch home". JanF (talk ) 19:13, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
if you like you could copy the code from the Main Page to your talk page and make the changes you suggest. Then we can ask for feedback on a different layout on the forum. Duncan (talk) 16:59, 29 August 2020 (UTC)
