April fools 2012

April fools' day is coming soon. What should the wiki do to celebrate april fools? — Oh, Times. Oh, Times, Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (T/C) 16:15, March 11, 2012 (EDT)

...Change it to look like the original fanstuff wiki? (Lame, I know) BHS · Talk to me
Hmmm...not a very good idea. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Told you it was lame. Any other ideas? I'm stumped. BHS · Talk to me
Me too. Maybe Cee gee can help. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
I'll ask her about it. BHS · Talk to me
Here's an idea for the "April Fools" wiki logo. — Oh, Times. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc (Talk/Cont/Sig) 18:45, March 20, 2012 (EDT)
Looks good! So, any other ideas? Maybe we should look at HRWiki:AFJAOBN for ideas. (And could you get some screenshots of the wiki during April Fools? I'm gonna be away and may not be able to see it.) BHS · Talk to me
Backwards sentences the all write could we! 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Ah, I was wondering what this, this is kinda like what the HRWiki did in '08? BHS · Talk to me
Yeah. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
Okay...but how? Do you know if there's any software-kinda thing on the wiki that can do this to the whole website? BHS · Talk to me
Hmmm...maybe we shouldn't do it to the whole website, but just some pages (Like the this one or this one or possibly this one). To answer the question, we edit the pages. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
backwards are sentences the so wiki the on pages important the all edit we, Basically? BHS · Talk to me
Exactly! 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

FOTM Template

So... I was wondering if we should use the {{Featured}} template from way back when we did Weekly Featured Fanstuff in 2012, or an icon-in-the-corner type thing like the old fanstuff wiki did (see the Sandbox). What do you think? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc

I could go either way, although the Featured template is a little more noticeable, I think. Both could probably use some tweaking. SRMX12 (talk) 11:42, September 7, 2017 (UTC)
Yeah. The Featured template is more noticeable, but also less noticeable, because you'll only see it if you look at the talk page, while the featured icon would be on the fanstuff page. Maybe both? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc
I'm leaning toward the icon in the corner, because some people might not see the talk page. Another reason is that the icon template could add each fanstuff page to a "Featured Fanstuff" category or something, while the box would only add the talk page. Anyway, this should be decided soon, since there are now half-a-year's-worth of featured fanstuffs. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 02:08, January 1, 2018 (UTC)
Officially changing my vote to icon-in-the-corner. After all, many articles on this wiki don't have talk pages, so it's not necessarily worth creating one just to feature an article. If we make it look cool enough, the icon will be perfectly noticeable with just the right amount of subtlety. SRMX12 (talk) 17:28, February 1, 2018 (UTC)
So, what should the icon look like? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:10, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
How 'bout this icon type style? 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:09, February 11, 2018 (UTC)
Hey, I love it! I think it'll get results. I think it'll make millions! As for the date that follows it, this doesn't matter a great deal and won't make a huge difference, but I think it might look a tad better without the <big> tags. SRMX12 (talk) 01:28, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
All right. I just added that because I thought there was too much of a difference between the height of the image and the text. But I guess it's not too bad. Also, thanks! After this is implemented, maybe I'll put the full size logo at the top of the main FOTM page. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 05:50, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
And it is done! I decided the text didn't look very good there, so now the logo links directly to the write-up (or whatever it's called). You can change it if you want. 15px-Strong_Bad_in_small_picture_frame.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 00:34, February 15, 2018 (UTC)
