As much as I hate sending 3 messages in a row. I'm going to. My Apologies
I was just going over the page - and now I think I understand what you are
doing. The main issue I have is that these "wiki personas" are already
well defined on the main page under "What's your interest?". Also I saw the
note "In Feb 2008 an attempt was made to simplify this (six sample
smartphone users) to four Wiki Personas." That seems a bit strange to me.
Those who use the wiki and those who use the phone in the end will be two
different groups. The original personas image (and User Categories) were
aimed at _end users_ of the phone.
