This page collects suggestions for improving the python.org web site.

intro

improving means enhancing site user's experience to find information faster and easier using the way they've used to. Major things that need improvement are usually obvious for everybody, but they seem Epic (Single Sign On, OpenID, online docs editor). Minor features are on the surface for each of us in particular, but they are not obvious for everyone else (wiki page subscription on edit, boring design).

improving is a process. Key to make any process effective is to provide a feedback that should be easy to reach and visible to others (see PHP online manual comments).

A lot of information causes frustration. That's why twitter takes over blogger. Too much inventory in the room makes it hard to navigate and hard to notice needed things. cleanup should throw unused stuff from standing in the way. It's especially true for wiki, but various python.org pages are accounted as well. Big amount of information reduces fun factor. Separate status page will help people see what's going on and have more fun by focusing their work and working together.
