How about implementing a random display of the featured images? Should be possible without the complexity of Uncyc's system. Or, if you want VFF/VFH-style separate voting pages as in Uncyc's VFP, so could be done. --Fluffalizer 13:28, 30 Aym 2008 (UTC)

I like Uncyc's old random image selector - it'd be great if we could replicate that. The voting system is still up for debate but I always thought Uncyc's whole VFP process was a bit complicated. On the other hand, if we don't implement something, archiving could start to get messy. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:32, 30 Aym 2008 (UTC)

One simple idea that I've thought of:

  • Just keep voting directly on the page, archiving by cutting/pasting onto subpages. (thus far, old Uncyc VFP style)
  • To feature an image, copy as used to describe it the vfi template to the Image:Filename page; categorization then adds the page to the random selection. (automated with <dpl> tags)

This could be implemented really quickly, the only thing needed being the putting of the image descriptions on the image filename pages and the replacing of the same with a dpl tag for the display. --Fluffalizer 14:34, 31 Aym 2008 (UTC)

This, however, won't allow for weighted selection. To add that, another category could be added. --Fluffalizer 15:24, 31 Aym 2008 (UTC)

For now, we can live without weighted selection. I'd be keen to implement the random selection idea thing though, I've made a category specially for featured images - maybe that could be of use. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:05, 1 Yoon 2008 (UTC)
That's what I thought I'd use, and now have. To change the look, adjust Template:Vfi.display, which is substituted for the vfi template when a selected image is displayed. --Fluffalizer 14:32, 2 Yoon 2008 (UTC)
That's excellent! Now we need some extra featured pics. Nice job! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:39, 2 Yoon 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone with a featured image earn a star?--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 15:50, 23 Yoon 2008 (UTC)

Didn't think of that one. I'm sure we could construct some form of reward. Maybe a different colour of star, or a new shape all together. --Testostereich(ballsack) 16:07, 23 Yoon 2008 (UTC)
Alright. Who wants to vote the Chief WXYY image. Any ideas? --(BKYE) Lord Sophia of Fruitland (babble)
