Main page content design

I'd like to dress up the Main Page a bit. Does anyone have linkage to good examples of wiki home pages that give a good overview of their content in an easy to understand manner? --Fastfude 10:03, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

It would probably be an idea to have a few of the more important categories linked to from here in a table. Say: Recording studios, promoters, practice spaces, duplication services etc. I'd do it but I don't have ze rights. TheBatgranny
Odd, you have admin control, so you should be able to. Do you get any error msg? --Fastfude 11:10, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
I'm an idiot, I've put in some categories that I think most people would be looking for. Feel free to edit or remove etc. TheBatgranny


Any chance of getting that logo changed?

Aye, I'd held off on the layout & aesthetics, hoping I'd have time to do a proper skin, but it hasn't happened obviously! I'll add in the FF one in the meantime. Fastfude 13:57, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Last.fm template

The free tracks part of the infobox isn't working any more :( --TheBatgranny

Deletion

Are there any criteria for deleting pages? I've deleted one because all it said was 'coming soon' on it but I've seen a few Southern and Scottish bands that could be removed for example. TheBatgranny

Hmm, I'd say default to keeping stuff unless it has zero relevant content and can't be repaired with general knowledge. eg Band profiles for bands that lasted a week, have been gone for years and never gigged or recorded, yet still found time to make a band profile on FF! On non-NI bands, if there's some decent connection to NI, there's probably no harm. Fastfude 17:14, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

YouTube Extension

It would be nice to be able to embed YouTube videos, there is an extension

Pictures

Enable pictures, go on, you know you want to. Even just for admins. Either that or we could set up a wiki flickr account so we can add pictures to it, then add them to the fastfude pool. It would make the rehearsal/recording studios and venue entires much prettier. TheBatgranny
