Forums: Index > Village Dump > Vote: Format of RecentUnNews
Note: This topic has been unedited for 2727 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

In a typical line from 5 In the news on the Uncyclopedia home page:

--it's not clear to me that a random user realizes that clicking on the words that are merely blue, rather than blue-and-bold, will not take him to the UnNews but to a related but completely different page.

Our current format seems to be a remnant of the era of ransom-note typography that the Forum voted to change in Forum:Amount of highlighting and linking in UnNews.

Without objection in the next 24 hours, I'll recode {{RecentUnNews}} so that each entire line is a link to the relevant UnNews, and will adjust any relevant documentation. Spıke Ѧ 13:54 4-Dec-10
