bugcat: I'd be interested in reviving the Article of the Week off my own back.
Since the beginning of May, I've been gathering interesting articles I've come across, usually by the Random Page, and posting them in this OGS forum thread.
I think I have enough to provide a year of content. The worst case scenario is that I get bored at some point and give up, which only results in the AotW returning to its present state of inactivity.
Are there any impediments to me taking over this role?
tapir: Imo, no impediments. It just needs an empty edit once a week by a librarian to update the frontpage when you made the changes in the template. (Or we could unban the frontpage, but it has been a spam magnet 10 years ago already and would probably be worse now.) Re-features should be no problem. We last had AotW ages ago.
bugcat: What template are you referring to? I don't know anything about that.
Herman: The front page includes the ArticleOfTheWeekTemplate, to avoid cluttering the front page edit history. So that's the page you edit, and then a librarian must update the front page with an empty edit to correctly update inclusion of the template.
bugcat: Thanks both of you. :D
This is what we put together. Obviously some of these are going to have already been featured. We can weed those out later. Some are also a bit stubby or of niche interest.
