Also, putting the policy in place of the "most important area", imo makes this wiki look like a "strictly ruled wiki". For someone who is used to pressing that area for the wiki activity, you are like forcing us to read the policies over.

Also, I'm not sure what you guys mean by the "misclicking", but I guess you mean: Expecting "Wiki Activity" as the first item, but clicking the "Our Policies" without reading the text.

The top menu is here mainly for new users who don't know anything about the wiki or Wikia at all, and the top menu is their only method how to find something on the wiki. These people don't know what to expect in the menu, so they always read what they are clicking on. I expect experienced editors mostly have links to their favorite pages stored anywhere, or they remember addresses of the pages they open frequently, or they use hot keys for the commonly used pages in the Special namespace, i.e. it is faster to press Alt+ Shift+G instead of clicking a "Wiki Activity" text in the top menu or enywhere else.

Sorry, but if you expect that we are all experienced users then you're wrong. Also as someone who have been using Wikia for around 4 years, other than remembering addresses of pages, I do nothing like you said. What we are experienced on is to rely on the Nav bar, using the first item of the first tab as the Wikia Activity, but not expecting one wiki having the arrangement of the navigation messed up, or to expect a staff that expects themselves to get used to a messed up feature here by just trying to change their habits.

Also, putting the policy in place of the "most important area", imo makes this wiki look like a "strictly ruled wiki". For someone who is used to pressing that area for the wiki activity, you are like forcing us to read the policies over.
