::While I hate to be devil's advocate, I have to say that I don't care one way or another. To be honest, it's a nonentity to me. I don't click on it, I don't look at it. Same with Digg and del.i.cious or however you do it. I care about the site, it's one of my favorite places to visit. I respect everyone here and their opinions, but I must respectfully disagree. We have had a long and rather heated debate in IRC, Rangeley and I, and my views are known. I think that if we come now to Wikia and say that we are unhappy with this, then we are coming off as petulant and unwilling to compromise, which will lead to adversity. Then, when something more drastic happens (as Rangeley believes it will) they will pay us no mind because we're not to be reasoned with. We can't let that happen.-{{User:Ljlego/sig}} 21:33, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

So, whats with this "Wikia Spotlight" stuff? What does it add towards our purpose here, if anything? Does it add humor to pages? Does it add a visual appeal to the site? ~Sir Rangeley Icons-flag-us GUN WotM UotM EGA +S (talk) 20:30, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

For once Rangeley, I have to agree with you, this spotlight thing sucks. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 20:39, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
Against, I don't like the concept, the pictures are ugly, it isn't funny, and its also a pretty big inside joke. I say we should huff it rather then feature it. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 21:24, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
