On the first screen of OSM

On the front page of OpenStreetMap, wouldn’t it be nice to have a more prominent “Welcome to OpenStreetMap” section inside the “Help” section?
Honestly, I don’t think people pay much attention to the “Help” item.
However, it does contain essential information, especially for beginners, but many people don’t look at it.
If you’re already familiar with OSM, you probably don’t need it, but beginners often get lost or make errors because they don’t know this simple stuff.
Therefore, I think it’s a good idea to at least place the “Welcome to OpenStreetMap” item prominently, or at least make the “Help” item prominent.
New contributors, especially in regions with less active communities, often don’t know where to turn for help.
