simple explanation...
beo, leo, and meo are wrong  =)

We had this discussion a while ago. But, it doesn't seem like it was on
thesite... or at least I can't find it in the archives. Bascially, IIRC we
decided that the home icon should be the subsite home.

Well, I guess by "consistency", I meant more intra-page design (look
out, he's gonna try and sound like a designer now). The other
two icons on that horizontal level (the ? and the @). feo (and other
subsites) needs the ? (faqs) at the very least. So, that horizontal level
is already sort of established as the subsite level (but on weo, they're
the same level). Also:

1. I don't know of any other evolt-global way to get to the subsite
home. You had to add the "Top" link.
2. The main "evolt.org" logo is already linked to www.evolt.org and is
much more prominent.

To me, it just makes sense to do this.

Either way, let's come to a concensus so i can change feo if needed.
