Thanks for posting this Sebomoto.

I've attached a patch that puts an "Add media" button on the home page when there's no media.

My only concern is that the button disappears after the first media item has been uploaded, and the user is none the wiser that there's an "Add media" button in the top toolbar. Perhaps the top toolbar should be open by default for new users, and then closing it sets a cookie so that it will stay closed. Other opinions?

Seems like a good idea, and simple enough execution. Pushed! I'd welcome refinements per Sturm's suggestions but I think this is good enough to close. Thanks sebomoto / Sturm!
