At the top of the front page a paragraph describing the Pootle server is displayed. the content of which can be changed in the server settings page.
The front page lists all Languages and Projects, each one with their translation statistics and the last user who submitted a translation and the time and date of the last submission.
Whether visitors get to see the languages and projects is governed by the server-wide view permission, not by the permission of each language and project.
It also displays the last few news items relating to the server as a whole (new projects or languages added to the server and newly registered users).
Finally at the bottom there is the top contributors table for the whole server.
