Basically we take quotes that are funny from various articles and feature them on the front page. What do you think? An Ape that Only Exists on Thursdays 20:49, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

That's not a bad idea. goshzillacorrespondence 00:17, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
If somebody has the time to implement and maintain it, I like it too. Another good way to find decent articles to look at. Then again, Did You Know kind of subtly serves this purpose already... --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:15, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
How would one go about implementing this? An Ape that Only Exists on Thursdays 18:29, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
You'd probably have to talk to Rc, Tompkins or someone 'in charge' of the front page. Personally I think this ain't a bad idea. We'd have to vet the quotes though. -- Hindleyite Converse 18:34, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
You mean, you stole an Idea. Wiki anyone? [[Shit [[head]]]] 14:51, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

What exactly do you mean Fuck Wit? 22:11, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

I believe he means he's a vabndal and so makes no sense. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 00:37, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm not so sure. In fact, we already have a "Random Quote of the Millisecond" on Unquotable:Main Page... Putting something like that on the site's main page would be relatively simple to accomplish. I wouldn't use the same template Unquotable uses, because all the quotes in it are actually about randomness (it's supposed to be ironic or something) but obviously we could use the same code and all that.  c • > • cunwapquc? 15:58, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

We'd need a quote selection page. We could basically copy the code for the Featured Article. We'd also need an admin to agree to maintain it (i.e. to change the front page quote) as I would be unable to do so. An Ape that Only Exists on Thursdays 20:39, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Officially, let me make this suggestion: Work on UnQuotable for a bit, and make it work well there. Once you've got that working well, if there's popular support, we can talk about main-paging it. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 04/2 13:15
