Hi Warin,

After looking at all these proposals and the related discussions, I would
actually strongly suggest going for information=reception:

1) We wanted to avoid confusion between reception as place and reception as
an event and reception as in radio communication, and it is difficult.
2) The word "reception" is actually used in hotels and similar places
*because* in hotels the reception is a welcoming place, so it's kind of
like a reception as in event. Same for big companies (they *welcome*
visitors and even offer tea/coffee). In hospitals and universities, though
the function of the desk is very similar to a company or hotel, they would
normally call it "information".
3) If someone needs help, he would normally go for "information". That's
where you can ask questions, so get help.

- will show up reasonably well for reception (as "i"), so that people will
find it;
- avoids all confusion with reception as event and reception as in radio
