Featuring movement strategy more prominently on the main page?

It strikes me as strange that the movement strategy doesn't feature on the main page at all (other than the current events section when a related meeting is happening), despite being the largest "meta" thing that's currently ongoing. There is a link to the mission and vision in the header, but not to the strategic direction, even though in practice that has a much larger impact on everyone's work; and there is no mention of how / where / when to get involved in the ongoing transition process (other than some current events, but many strategy events are actually not listed there, plus the first step of getting involved is organizing such an event, as these are typically bottom-up things, and there is there is no prompt about that or information on where to go).

I admit my immediate reason is somewhat selfish as I always open meta's main page when I want to navigate to the strategy pages and I'm always annoyed that I don't find any link here, but maybe I'm not the only one who'd expect such an important set of conversations to be displayed more prominently. --Tgr (talk) 05:34, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

@Tgr: I think having a section devoted to this in a more permanent way than listings in the current events template is a good idea, however as I mentioned above in other sections, this page sees fairly little traffic so I'd suggest opening up a section at babel to get feedback from a larger number of contributors; best regards,

Metawiki or Mewiki / Tame ?

I suggest use Metawiki, Metawik, Mewiki or Tame (meTAwikiMEdia) for the project.--BoldLuis (talk) 10:07, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

Use an unique (proper) name for the project and avoid the employ of hyphens. --BoldLuis (talk) 10:12, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
For what purpose? 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 10:14, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
To have an unique (proper) name, as Wikipedia. You do not need to use "Wikimedia Wikipedia". Only say "Wikipedia". Insted of this, there is a lot "metawikis". So you need to say two words to talk about the project "Wikimedia Meta-Wiki" and use a hypen ( - ). It is shorter "Tame" or "Mewiki". We can say: "you / we are in Tame" or "you are in Mewiki". --BoldLuis (talk) 10:18, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
How is "Meta-Wiki" not unique? 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 10:20, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
It is not. There are other wikis that have metawikis / meta-wikis to talk about the project. Because of this, you use "Mediawiki Meta-Wiki" instead, including an annoying hyphen (originally, the name was Meta-Wikipedia). --BoldLuis (talk) 10:22, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Why is a hyphen annoying? Could you also point to specific wikis which are known under the name "Meta-Wiki"? 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 10:33, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
It also happened in e-mail and email [1] and other words. Other metawikis: [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], these last ones about metawiki capabilities and creating a page with pieces of another wiki pages, [7] and so on. --BoldLuis (talk) 11:09, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
