I recently gave twitter a shave and a haircut, and the code used there can be made more flexible so that all the untweets pages can have the same makeover. As a non-namespace this has more content than UnDebates, and more features. So two quick questions:

Should we create an official untweets name space?

  • Symbol for vote N&F It's up to wikia to implement this, but they generally will if we have community support for it. As we have an official twitter account, and finally have a sharing tool in place, having a "frame" (to steal the term from HTBFANJS) that twitter users can relate to makes sense. At the very least we should have a portal for it, but a namespace makes sense when we have sufficient volume of features to support it.                               Puppy's talk page11:54 16 Aug

  • That dude. Plus, no direct wiki copyspace. Seems to do just fine as an unofficial space. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 17:26, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

Should we revamp the existing articles on this namespace to look like 2012 Twitter layout?

  • Symbol for vote N&F Again with the frame and context side of things, the more familiar people are with the layout, and the more it looks like an accurate parody, the funnier it is. Or to put it another way, Ryan Stiles does a better impersonation of John Wayne than Eddie Murphy would, and then subverts expectations, and as such it becomes funnier. The only reason I'm not just doing the change is that we are looking at four or so featured articles included in this category. The changes to the coding are fairly minimal. If I had access to site CSS I'd even be able to do with it what was done with the UnDebate name space.                               Puppy's talk page11:54 16 Aug
