With the recent interest in using Wikipedia on the mobile phone, it became clear that we also need a good looking main page. When you think about it, it means that most of the information that can be found on a standard main page will have to go. A mobile has a smaller window and the cost of sending all the good stuff needs to be considered as well.
Finding the right balance takes its time and, the community of a Wikipedia also has a say in what is to become a pretty interface into our Wikipedia. On the Dutch language Wikipedia, Romaine has created a first draft. In my opinion there is still too much on the page but I am really happy with this first result.
Having a welcome, it takes a lot of real estate on a mobile ... maybe not ?
