I'm wondering if a better way would be to adjust the make.wordpress.org homepage to have a callout to the contribute selection guide before the tiles instead?

Having the full list of teams and short descriptions handy is nicer than being dropped straight into a wizard IMHO.

I personally believe a bunch of people would see the wizard and bounce from the page rather than completing it - It's useful, but you need to have some context of "I want to contribute" first

I agree with Dion here. The main Make landing site could benefit from having a callout above the grid of teams that directs visitors to the wizard. E.g., roughly,

As you see below, we have many contributor teams which could use your help! If you're not sure which teams match your interests and abilities, check out our contributor wizard.

I like it until we see Make get a refresh. Are any locales translating that top Make page? If not, I think we can ship quickly then (helpful before flagship camps)

The theme is coded to allow translations, but I don't believe it is registered as a project available to be translated. That would only really consist of the stuff above the teams grid. Each team block is a custom post type, so those wouldn't be translated anyhow.
