Forum:RSWP Main Page Template
Well, I didn't follow up on Forum:Make the RSWP official so when I submitted an article for the January release...it didn't come...and I didn't know where to find it. My fault, but even as an experienced wiki user, if I have trouble finding something, something is up... I understand we no longer wish to have monthly releases now, but I think we should still attempt a bit more then a side bar addition to bring attention to the post. It's a very good thing for our wiki and entertaining to say the least in some context.
On the main page of the wiki, I propose the addition of a new template which will fit neatly on the right hand side (we can change the color), such as:
|RuneScape Wiki Post|
This allows for our viewers to read a bit out of our latest article which might drawn them to the entire article, therefore drawing attention to the post as a whole. The latest update will show our readers when the latest addition was added so they can keep up to date, and as prior, we will know when new content is available without an entire public release as in the past. I think it's a good idea to draw back some attention.

Support - I like it. The RSWP needs more publicity in any case.22:17, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
Comment The proofreaders have doing a good job, but it would behoove us to ensure that this gets proofread very carefully before release. People reading it for the first time may well judge the entire wiki by these articles.--Degenret01 04:41, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
Support - Tired of searching for a new issue of the RSWP? *rummages through the search engine* Hi! Billy Mays here with the RSWP Main Page Template! • NnK Oliver • (600613) talk 04:46, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
Support - per all... but with changes (see below).
I don't think we have this blue in our Main Page, so I changed the colour. I think pastel and soft colours are much more soothing to the eyes than the bright colours used in RuneScape:Wiki Post. 04:48, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
- I agree. Let's change the colors on the Wiki Post too. It would only be a slight difference, but appearance and presentation is important on first impressions. Let's soften it up a bit, out with the bright Red and in with the Soft Rose ;)
- As for blue, we have a couple varieties of it already? What about a green pastel?
- I think pastel green looks similar to "Featured images"...
- This is pastel green.
- Here are some other variations of green:
- This is forest green.
- This is dark sea green.
- Or, how about cyan?
- This is cyan.
- Cyan works well.
Support per all.
On the right column, where shall we "sandwich" this template? We have a few sections: "Common Trade Index" (1), "Featured image" (2), "On this day..." (3), "Opinion poll" (4). I would put below either between 3-4, or after 4. Discuss please.14:59, January 13, 2010 (UTC)
Support between 3-4 - I think it would look good between the two, which was my initial position I had in mind when creating the template. The poll is something not as significant as an actual project, therefore it seems appropriate to place this after.

Support 3-4 - Per all.00:52, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
Request closure - I've created Template:Wiki Post and placed it between 3-4 at RuneScape:Main Page. Have a look. Unless there are any other issues, the changes will be live on the Main Page in 2-3 days. 03:58, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
