I am concerned that this page is tl;dr. Duncan (talk) 14:14, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

OK - I've reduced this to three:

Section Function
About Explains briefly about the project
Explore Explains briefly how to access articles
Contribute Explains briefly how to contribute

Note that these three threads don't overlap, so there's nothing in "about" about exploring or contributing. Explore says nothing about the content, or how to contribute. Contribute says nothing about the content, or how to explore the content, just how to contribute. This is clearer than before which had too much waffling.

  • Featured content is something that could be brought back, but I'd put it under "Explore". Rationalwiki has a decent "random good article" system.
  • Awards can go under "About"; there's only 1 and it's a bit dated now.
  • Copyright is covered briefly in both about (where the licence is indicated) and contribute (where it's explained that contributions are licensed).
