Oh I'll have fun with this...--The Merovingian (C - E) 23:27, 1 May 2006 (CDT)

Is there a way to point this out better on the Main Page? It's not getting much milage if its hard to find. --The Merovingian (C - E) 09:35, 6 June 2006 (CDT)

Agreed. Perhaps a listing at the top of the Community Portal near the link to the Quorum? --Steelviper 09:40, 6 June 2006 (CDT)
I dunno. Hey, there seems to be a lot of space at the bottom of "Airdates"; could we perhaps find room for a subheading there?--The Merovingian (C - E) 09:46, 6 June 2006 (CDT)
That depends in part on there being less text on the FA and Airdates side than the News/Merchandise side. However, if that gap were to remain then a subheading might work. What were you thinking for a subheading though? Community portal (with links to quorum, admin noticeboard, and reference desk)? This might be better raised at Battlestar Wiki:Main page so it's on Shane's radar too. --Steelviper 09:54, 6 June 2006 (CDT)


I've tightened up the description a bit, added a "Before you ask a question" section for some of the information. Any other thoughts? JubalHarshaw 11:33, 11 January 2007 (CST)

It looks fine. Admins: We could still stand to place this in a better link somewhere for questions that seem to turn up on the Main Page talk instead. --Spencerian 16:18, 11 January 2007 (CST)
True, I didn't even know this page existed until now :o Would placing it in the navigation bar be too prominent? --Serenity 16:25, 11 January 2007 (CST)
Concur. Maybe even on the navigation bar (though real estate over there may become precious). --Steelviper 07:31, 12 January 2007 (CST)
We should probably work on putting a note on top of the Talk:Main Page. Also, this link should be included in the Community portal page, Admin noticeboard, and the Wikipedian Quorum as well. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 08:47, 12 January 2007 (CST)
I have yet to get to this page, cleanup wise, since work is at night and is 12 hours long. Alot of items are old and need to be updated. Please do not remove the cleanup tag. Thank you. Shane (T - C - E) 18:09, 23 February 2007 (CST)

Curious as to what you still want to do to this page as far as cleanup. JubalHarshaw 10:18, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Putting on my mind-reading cap, I think part of the problem with this page is that it's pretty out of the way. Either we should increase the visibility of the article (more prominent links, etc) or delete it. I like the idea of the "interactivity". While some of that is covered by the blog, this would be a good place to try to match the "questioners" with the "answerers". --Steelviper 10:24, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

That makes sense, but that's really not an issue of "cleanup" with this page. The page is clean; the question is, as you say, whether or not to keep it, and if we keep it, how to make it more visible. I for one would like to Keep; I too like the interactivity and it could serve a useful purpose if more prominent. JubalHarshaw 10:31, 10 April 2007 (CDT)
