Quote Box suggested improvement Edit
Could the frontpage quote box include some kind of indication to what the quote is from? I understand quotes on LP articles refer to the part of which the quote was taken, yet the quote box could also include what LP/Friendcast episode it is from, as they are often taken without context of their origin. I'm uncertain how the quote box functions, so I'm not sure if this is actually possible, yet doing so would assist greatly in sating people's curiosity. JAK0723 (talk) 06:36, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Podcast Page Improvement IdeaEdit
The only pages I've noticed on this wiki that desperately need attention are the podcast ones (about 2/3rd of them seem to just be skeleton pages with the " template) and It'd be great to see that fixed because they would be a great source of info.
This is way too big a project for the 10 or so regular editors of this wiki mainly because of how long each podcast is when we've probably already seen them, so I'd suggest giving front page space to let the occasional contributors know that they can help fill them out: something like a progress bar of how many podcasts have fully filled out pages.
This one from PCGaming wiki is about what I was thinking of and I'm sure they'd happily share the coding.
For sure. I've been getting back into editing those pages, since it's usually my job. I think I should be able to knock a good chunk of them out before too long. What really needs work however, are the Friendcast Mailbag pages. The first few are filled out very thoroughly, but after that, nothing. I think I can handle the podcast stuff, but the Mailbag pages definitely need some work.
I never did get round to watching those mailbags, they've sat in my "watch later" for years. When I get the chance over holidays I'll give it a shot and fill everything out as I go.
