It's great that you want to plunge forward and make changes, but before changing something as far-reaching as the Mission statement, or the headers used in all of our articles, you should bring up your ideas and present them to the rest of the community. The Mission is a reflection of what this whole project was started for, and what everyone who's joined it since agrees to. While I'm sure no one has anything against it being "accurate" and "high quality", the list of things Evan and Maj included indicates what the highest priorities of the project are. Likewise, the section headers we use have a long history behind them, and would be a huge effort to change, so any changes need to be carefully considered. - Todd VerBeek 11:35, 8 December 2007 (EST)
