Fandom research: updating the page header

Hey Scrubs Wiki!
One of our current projects is to look into updating the page header area - that is, the area which currently contains the wordmark, local navigation and contribute button.

Page header area highlighted
We want to make sure the page header area is as useful as it can be - both for the newbie who has never visited your wiki before and for the experienced editors. We're also keen on making the mobile and desktop experience feel a bit more connected.
We've been spending some time looking into what improvements could be made, and you can read much more about our research and findings on this Community Central forum post.

A test concept
As a result of this research, we've come up with a potential concept for how the page header could look:

The page header when first viewedThe page header with the 'Read' menu open - with level one headings listed down the left sideThe 'Create' menu (we realise the link order is a bit strange at the moment)The 'Search' option, after click - similar 'expanding' behavior to the global navigation search optionJSSnippetsStack.push({dependencies:[{"url":"http://slot1.images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__am/1503048170/group/-/wikia_photo_gallery_js","type":"js"},{"url":"http://slot1.images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__am/1503048170/sass/background-dynamic%3Dtrue%26background-image%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fimg3.wikia.nocookie.net%252F__cb15%252Fscrubs%252Fimages%252F5%252F50%252FWiki-background%26background-image-height%3D947%26background-image-width%3D1900%26color-body%3D%2523394456%26color-body-middle%3D%2523384357%26color-buttons%3D%25236793b1%26color-community-header%3D%25236793b1%26color-header%3D%2523394456%26color-links%3D%2523006cb0%26color-page%3D%2523ffffff%26oasisTypography%3D1%26page-opacity%3D100%26widthType%3D0%26wordmark-font%3Dyanone/extensions/wikia/WikiaPhotoGallery/css/gallery.scss","type":"css"}],callback:function(json){WikiaPhotoGalleryView.init(json)},id:"WikiaPhotoGalleryView.init"})Though the layout is somewhat different, it retains much of the existing content - the wordmark, navigation and contribution options.
We think placing the wordmark top and center will help emphasise your wiki's identity, while the reorganised links should make it easier for a newbie to get to know your wiki. In particular, while the main links are hidden initially, you can quickly browse a wide overview of the wiki's content by clicking 'Read'.
As an initial test concept, it is not a final design (indeed, work is still ongoing on this concept right now) and it is subject to significant changes. We could end up going in a very different direction, as other concepts are being explored.
We plan to enabling this test on Scrubs Wiki over the holiday break to get feedback on the concept and to obtain data on how it's used. No specific changes will be needed, and it's very simple for us to switch on and off.
Thanks for reading, and feel free to let us know your thoughts!
