Has anyone given thought to a Header Graphic? It can be installed via ThemeDesigner, & often turns out looking very good (dresdenfiles.wikia.com/d/g, diepio.wikia.com/d/g, sot.wikia.com). Would it not be nice to select an image here? Or perhaps have some sort of art contest?
Aesthetics out the window, there’s a few useful tools that might help with Discussions in particular. One is a Fandom-supported tool for moderating Discussions & generally keeping up-to-date, written by the Elder Scrolls Admin Flightmare, called DiscussionsFeed (dev.wikia.com/w/DiscussionsFeed). Some users might find it useful to have such a thing installed sitewide.
Besides that, & a personal favorite of mine, there is the DiscussionsRailModule script, written by one of my fellow Vanguards named Speedit (dev.wikia.com/w/DiscussionsRailModule). What it does is it transcludes the latest discussions into an aesthetically pleasing list which matches the other right rail modules on desktop pages. While mobile might not find much use for this script, it WILL advertise Discussions (& more importantly, the latest topics) most heavily, leading I think to an increase in traffic to this area (thus indirectly helping mobile users by giving them more people to talk to). An example of this script in use can be seen on the right of the page by going here: dresdenfiles.wikia.com/w/Special:Random
A third script, also by Flightmare, transcludes the Community App Bios onto user pages that don’t exist. While it makes sense for App users not to edit their profiles, to Wiki editors it looks really odd to see 2,000 Discussions posts & not even a user page. This script, located at tes.wikia.com/w/MediaWiki:Common.js/DiscussionsLinks.js, takes care of that by filling in the user page with the app bio (as can be seen here: tes.wikia.com/w/User:Only1storm666). That script I find very useful for allowing desktop users to get to know Community App users better.
So, do any of the above things seem useful for this Wiki? Helpful? Even if no one wants to install these sitewide, this Wiki has the Gadgets Extension enabled, so these scripts could be made into optional gadgets that could be disabled by users who didn’t like them via the link below. They can also be made to look more aesthetically pleasing with some CSS, so what does everyone think?
