Hi guys, I noticed [[Twilight Saga Wiki:Quote of the Month]] is a very long list of beautiful quotes from everyone's favorite characters, and it would seem that 'of the Month' was chosen so that it wouldn't have to be changed too often.

I've also noticed on some other wikis that they use a Random Quote system, where they put all the quotes they have into one big list, and the system selects one at random every time the page loads. So once in awhile, the admins could pick the new quotes from the suggestions, and add them to the shuffle at their leisure.

Is this something that would benefit the site? Would any of you be interested in having a feature like this installed?
 
   
To help get an idea of what it would be like, I put an example [[Template:Random Quote|here]]. You can click the 'New Quote' link to get a new random one. This link could be included on the main page for users to click too while they're there.

Hi guys, I noticed Twilight Saga Wiki:Quote of the Month is a very long list of beautiful quotes from everyone's favorite characters, and it would seem that 'of the Month' was chosen so that it wouldn't have to be changed too often.

Twilight Saga Wiki:Quote of the Month was deleted, so go to User:Peteparker/dev for an example or to Template:Random_Quote to read how to generate a random Quote. JoKalliauer 05:11, August 23, 2010 (UTC)


I've also noticed on some other wikis that they use a Random Quote system, where they put all the quotes they have into one big list, and the system selects one at random every time the page loads. So once in awhile, the admins could pick the new quotes from the suggestions, and add them to the shuffle at their leisure.

Is this something that would benefit the site? Would any of you be interested in having a feature like this installed?

To help get an idea of what it would be like, I put an example here. You can click the 'New Quote' link to get a new random one. This link could be included on the main page for users to click too while they're there.

Ah, an even better example is in the main page draft now, so you can see what it looks like in a main page.

It looks fantastic, and I see it's already being used on the main page. The only issue I have with it is that a lot of the quotes have grammar mistakes. I've changed and fixed it on that actual quotes page, but I haven't at Template:Random Quote. ~ Bella Swan 21:07, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
