      Description

      There is a certain weight of opinion that says the end user should be unaware that the "Home" area (formerly "My Workspace") is actually a site. It is one of a kind and isnt that much like a Course or Project site. 

      The ultimate goal could be to remove "Home" from the top "navigation bar" and migrate that button's functionality into what I'm calling "top right personal drop down menu" (TRPDDM). The idea is, I think, to remove the concept of there being a "Home Site" and to emulate what Twitter / ebay / amazon does: there's useful info in the TRPDDM, you click on it and you get to access the functionality - why do you have to know there's a site called Home?

      Examples

          

      The plan is that we add some "high profile" "My Home" links in the TRPDDM, eg, profile, preferences, calendar, maybe one or two others. We probably wouldnt want all My Home functionality although what is and isnt shown could be configurable.

      The consensus seemed to be that we may, initially at least, need a 3 way property 

       1 - just show my Home in navigation bar

       2 - show my Home in navigation bar and in "top right personal drop down menu"

       3 - just show "top right personal drop down menu"

      If 2 or 3 is selected then the links to show should be ready from a property. A sensible default should be given.

      We may ultimately have 3 as the default (or even only) option.
