Info

I did try fill this in once but couldn't figure out how....thanks! Robvanvee 14:43, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Rob, take another look at the table markup. I removed the double pipes and now hopefully this makes it easier to identify patterns. Let me know if you have more specific questions? --Jason (talk) 15:04, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

2015

Rob, maybe Xmas OG should end on 12/31 and we should kick off the new year with a new Strain of the Week? I will create a new table for 2015. -Jason (talk) 17:36, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

So you mean 24 hours earlier? If so, cool, makes sense. We are now starting to run out of strain specific pics. The MP will look less lively without them don't you think? What are our options? Approach "someone" to ask if we can use their pics? Who? Change SOTW to ?OTW. Person, country, article or something else?

And while I'm thinking about it...there is a bit of "dead space" to the right of the portal section on the MP. Not a big deal but I was wondering how we could better utilize that area. Do you prefer to keep the portal section near the top instead of lower down kinda like Wikipedia? I know we are not mirroring, but it does sort of make sense (maybe only to me) to have that lower down and possibly turn that into, as previously suggested, an Article of the Week section, or perhaps a current news section? Say 5 of the most recent weed headlines from around the world (things are moving quickly and there is no shortage of news weed related). We could update the headlines on a weekly basis. I know it similar to Wikipedia, but our MP stays fresh and I think that encourages people to check in on a weekly basis. Just an idea. Keep up the good work J.

I am totally open to the MP having an featured article section. I will draft a template for displaying the Portals. There is already an In the News section, but maybe we can add a few headlines to make it more interesting. Do you like the floating text in the white space at the top of the page, or should that also be enclosed in a table with the gray background? Let's see what we can do to improve the Main Page... -Jason (talk) 16:44, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
