People must know the difference!
  
I have searched for an installation guide (building from svn source), but I could not find anything on the official mumble webpages. I think a [[Building from Source]] guide would be a good idea, because the last binary release is a little bit old and there are already many external HOWTOs which try to describe this procedure but they are not up-to-date. A [[Server HOWTO]] would also be nice. Oh, I see there are already articles like [[Configuring Murmur]] and [[Running Murmur]], but no page links to them.

: It will not land on the mainpage. Could be added to a different page on this wiki though, that talks about latency/latency comparison. -[[User:Kissaki0|Kissaki]] 14:29, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Maybe you can design the main page more clearly like [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki] or [http://wiki.cookie-craft.de/en/index.php/Main_Page]. -- [[User:Xylo|Xylo]] 09:09, 20 June 2007 (PDT)

== Issue: OS X should be macOS ==
  
I couldn't agree more. And of course the should be displayed in a somewhat organized way. On a sidenote: The mainpage is not editable by "normal" users, i can see that this may be on purpose, because of Spam protection, but calls to use/contribute to the wiki, as heared in the forums, make not that much sense if the pages are not linked in.

OS X has been renamed to macOS since 2016. Should the download list reflect that?
  
No specific clue for the layout but here are some examples:

I created [[Installing Mumble]] so most important information about installing is in one page. Maybe it's useful to add it to the main page, or replace the current links (building) with it (the page already includes links to the building pages). As it is now it may appear that you '''have''' to compile mumble and that there are no binaries available.

== Link to Dissussionforums should be updated ==
 
I still think more links are necessary. Most of the pages don't get much attention. So the main page doesn't get filled with a bunch of links, I suggest including a link to [[Special:Allpages|All pages]]. That will put it in plain view of everyone instead of hidden in the "[[Special:Specialpages|Special pages]]" link on the left menu where I'm sure a large majority of people don't know about it. --[[User:Pilot 51|Pilot 51]] 06:20, 11 October 2007 (PDT)
 
  
The link to the Disscusion Forums should be updated.

But https://sourceforge.net/projects/mumble/forums

some text as filler to get the layout right
might be better. It still works, how ever a little error message is displayed.
 
  
== Please add 3rd Party Applications to Main Page ==
+
== Google captcha ==
  
A lot people request links for 3rd Party Applications on IRC and forum. It would be very helpful, when they can find a link to the 3rd Party Applications page on the Main Page.
+
Imo the google captcha is annoying, wouldn't it be enough to show it just once in the beginning?
In here: Documentaion => Server =>  Addons (http://mumble.sourceforge.net/3rd_Party_Applications)
+
Or at least just sometimes?
 +
 
 +
== Timeline for change being applied to Upstream public wiki is too long  ==
 +
 
 +
I noticed that changes to the public wiki are applied very slowly.
 +
Can't that be a little faster?
 +
At least changes made by Members of the team or even "trustful" users could be applied faster imo.
 +
 
 +
== Add link to audio page ==
 +
 
 +
You might consider linking to the [[audio]] page in the section for the client.
 +
For clarity it should be named '''Audio Options'''.

Make sure the new website homepage feature list is not missing useful links

Our wiki homepage had this block with more links. They may not be useful though, or should be less prominent than a full-text-line-link.

You might consider linking to the audio page in the section for the client. For clarity it should be named Audio Options.
