A "Thanks" link is now in the nav menu.

The policy that every page on the nav menu should also have the nav menu
is a good one.

The "Thanks" link, and other general and prominent non-nav links such as
a potential "The Book" link, do not have to go in the nav menu. Instead
they could go ...

  - in a separate section in the left-hand pane, such as a new section
after the nav menu and before the disclaimer.

  - on the main page. The "Thanks" link would not be out of place there
(unless it has to appear on all pages, but that's not how I understood
it).

Or both.
