While browsing some other sites, I figured a featured picture and a "Did you know?" section would make the main page more attractive. These would be changed monthly. AriasCombatSwords.pngKnight 03:39, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

What are you suggesting we put in that section? Trivia? Updates? What? --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 03:52, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
A high quality picture showing something in RuneScape and just some info people might find interesting. Perhaps we could tie in all that scattered trivia to become something people will read in an organized section? AriasCombatSwords.pngKnight 05:06, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Great idea.. I suggest using facts from the Trivia section. For example: "Did you know that if a player loses their God book, they can go back to Jossik who will have found it "washed up ashore" and get it back for free, complete with all the pages it had beforehand."

The featured picture should be a high resolution picture of really well done areas of the game. Sounds like a great idea. Cap and goggles.pngTEbuddy 02:38, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
On the note of new content to the Main Page, i was thinking something similar to the RS GE DB's Item of the Week would give a nice touch as small side widget or some such perhaps nestled under the CTI Today: 197.06 Up.svg +0.92 section. Of course it would have to be relatively brief in size say only the item's name, inventory icon image, and examine text. Considering the sheer quantity of items it could actually be an Item of the Day feature, however I think that would be too much churn for this wiki currently. ~kytti khat 19:20, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

I like the idea of adding a small "Did You Know" section. Add some trivia or useful tips in minigames or skills. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 02:10, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Should this be put on Talk:RuneScape Wiki? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 21:00, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
