suggestion for 'is my installation of tor working?' page

Hi all,


All of the above provide useful information for the first-time tor user. But 
the last two are only really meaningful to initates (and probably confusing 
to everyone else), while the first is reassuring but could really offer a 
little more.

What is needed (IMVHO) is a page that confirms you are using tor successfully, 
but also introduces you to the other services that tor offers and also some 
advice for the tor debutante. A sort of official or unofficial 'welcome to 
the tor network' page. This could be linked to in the FAQ/INSTALL and used by 

Would the maintainers of any of the above be interested in providing such a 
thing? Given that the heavy lifting has already been done on all of the 
above, it would be very trivial to create. Would there be an appetite for 
such a thing on the tor homepage itself?

Suggestions for content:

* A warm greeting!
* Top Five things all tor users should know
* Appeal for users to run servers and link to how-to
* An introduction to some hidden services

Anyway, just a thought...
