Hyarion, maybe you could combine the current Main Page with the Search Page you're suggesting? Cut (some of) the introductory notes and put in the Search bar.

This was actually something I had been thinking about doing for a while but never got around to it because it takes a bit of hacking into the code of the MediaWiki engine, but it was quite easy and as you can see I've moved the Search button up to the top. This should make it at least a little easier for the time being. Thanks for your input. --Hyarion 11:57, 3 March 2006 (EST)
