It's a well kept secret that the website is about 20 years old without any changes in design. And it will probably stay that way until the end of times :D

However, I decided to change the start page a bit, removing the by now slightly weird "eMule origin story" and donkey comparisions in favor for some short stream lined explanation of what eMule actually is.

Any translation of that to our countless languages would be very welcome :) Just post the translated text as answer and I'll update it as soon as possible.

							<div>
								<p>eMule is a free and open-source peer-to-peer file sharing client, allowing you to connect to millions of users to download and share files with them. By using the ED2K and Kademlia Network it supports semi-centralized as well as decentralized searches and operations. All of it free and without any adware or advertising.</p>
								
								<p>As of today, eMule is one of the biggest, oldest and most reliable file sharing clients around the world. Thanks to its open source policy many developers are able to contribute to the project, making the network more efficient with each release.</p>

								<p>Sometimes eMule can be a bit overwhelming for new users. But worry not! Our community is here to help. Check out our <a href="help.cgi?l=1">support pages</a> which explain all the its functions and try to answer the most questions. If you can't find an answer there, you can visit our <a href="https://forum.emule-project.net/" target="_blank">forum</a> and ask your questions there. Or you use eMule's build in IRC function to look for advice from other users.
								However, please don't forget that those are not paid support staff but just users like you who are willing to help in their free time.</p>

I also suggest updating server list sites at Help - Servers - Addresses to Server Lists page to www.emule-security.org and shortypower.org
Those 2 are long time active and provide working server lists.
Peerates has changed its list to text only so there is nothing to click or download, could be complicated for new users...

Working and Legit Emule Server Lists are available here:
www.emule-security.org/serverlist and shortypower.org
You can also enable options for updating server list from a connected server and clients
in order to have all currently available servers listed in your Emule software.
