Where To Put My Home Page

OK, I have to ask this now.

Should my home page (MikeVanEmmerik) be in web Main or web Transform? Everyone elses seems to have been created in Transform, but when I registered (just after the Sep 2001 upgrade), I ended up in Main.

It seems to be a nuisance; I have to call myself Main.MikeVanEmmerik, and I can't seem to become a member of CategoryPeople.

If I need to move, is there an easy way to do this?

The problem is caused by the way TWiki deals with user registrations. When registering as a user in TWikiRegistration the registration script creates a new page in the Main web. Registration will fail when a page with the user name already exists, since it will assume that the user registered before.

On the other hand we want to create pages about people in the ProgramTransformation field. If we would put these pages in the Main web they would not be able to join the twiki as a user later.

The list in CategoryPeople only contains CategoryPeople pages in the Transform web. This could be improved.

The current approach is to put a page in the Transform web as well and let that one point to your Main page.
