Owasp main page should be reserved for Owasp banner ads - conference upcoming, events, promotions (reboot as example or month of X awareness campaigns)
For supporting advertising, the revised placement on all community projects/chapters is extremely valuable in this revised set-up while improving the experience and encouraging rotation
It's MORE then just the front page (as this is a misconception it was in the main template #wrong
Glad none of the other 300 edits made that were long overdue did not result in discussion would be a long day...
Btw someone want to fix the dead link to Owasp books on the main page or set up a [new window] ref on Owasp gear.
Got to get to a webinar https://isc2.brighttalk.com/node/979
