I think adding a collection of the best Overcoming Bias posts, including posts like "you are never entitled to your own opinion" to the front page would be a great idea, and it might be better than putting a link to HPMOR (some users seem to believe that linking HPMOR on the front page may come across as puerile).

I agree that I really want a Robin Hanson collection in a similar style to how we already have a Scott Alexander collection. We will have to coordinate with Robin on that. I can imagine him being on board, but I can also imagine him being hesitant to have all his content crossposted to another site. He seemed to prefer having full control over everything on his own page, and apparently didn't end up posting very much on LessWrong, even as LW ended up with a much larger community and much more activity.

Well, maintaining links to them (if he prefers them on his site) might be an acceptable compromise then? I think Robin's posts are a core part of the "rationalist curriculum", and the site would be incomplete if we don't include them.
