This is why I suggested the "independent" projects should have their own webpage with a link under the mozdev.org link. It seems more appropriate as a permanent webpage than a news item since people may want to know about the projects but do not seem to have much to say about them.

Should there then be a news item that tells us when the new "independent" project status is available? I don't mind that there's not much feedback but I'd arguel that the "front and center" value is worth it. I never look anything linked over there on the side. Is there harm in having a news item that has no talkback? Maybe a news item like it is but with no link to talkback? What then if I want to say something or if there is something particularly exciting that people do want to talk about? Just some of my thoughts...

No.

"I don't mind that there's not much feedback but I'd arguel that the 'front and center' value is worth it. I never look anything linked over there on the side."

Other people probably look at those things. If nobody looks at those things then they should all be removed. The site would load faster.

"Is there harm in having a news item that has no talkback? Maybe a news item like it is but with no link to talkback?"

That would be good for telling people when the status reports are updated. I think an animated icon next to a link to each updated project would be more effective though, and use less space.

Yes, definitely.

It's nice when people think, that their opinion is the only in the world and everybody is just like them. I'm not, I like these updates and I can wait these 0,2 seconds that the page takes longer to load. And even if these newsitems werent there, there would be some older...

"Is there harm in having a news item that has no talkback? Maybe a news item like it is but with no link to talkback?"

Am I wrong or is there every time some feedback? Maybe not much but sometimes very interesting and does this talkback link cost so much to justify removing it?

People, who think their opinion is the only opinion in the world, tend to answer subjective questions with, "Yes, definitely." You are obviously an idiot who responded to me only because you like to argue.

on mozdev there is a status reports page that provides links to each of the status reports that has run on mozillazine. this isn't excatly what you're talking about, but it is one option for a permanent location that can be tweaked to make it work better. anyway, if you want to check it out and make suggestions, it's at <http://www.mozdev.org/status/index.html>
