Additions to the file list[]

The MediaWiki page is probably locked so that non sysops may not edit it. Please make additions to the list here and they will be added to the list. Please follow the format of the example and the instructions above. Links don't work in the description. ~ Phlox 07:19, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you again[]

Our number-one ideas-man scores again. Brilliant! (By the way, it is my understanding that every "MediaWiki:" page on every MediaWiki wiki is locked so that non sysops may not edit it.) I think the slideshow deserves to be higher on the page, even in the top panel perhaps. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 13:32, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

I thought about replacing the celtic circle, or- there looks like there is space on the top banner, but I thought better of it. The main page is you guys' bailiwick. Thank Uberfuzzy for the docs on how to embed any widget in the body of the article. There are also two other modes. 1= new images 2=random. you can add limit=50 so it will cycle on many. I like listing them because we get a hover message saying what it is. They can click on the images, but of course that will take folks to the Image page, not the article. Maybe we could put a banner at the top of these pages to take visitors to the relevant person articles. If folks used the form to annotate the images, that would make some image pages a little more presentable.~ Phlox 16:27, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
