Talk:Main Page

from 2005 :

"Featured Articles" grows up, a little

Since I can't leave well enough alone, I've changed the format of the main page again, in two ways:

  1. Added room for a little but of synopsis text to entice the reader to check out the latest featured article.
  2. Moved the actual content of "featured article" and "previously featured" to templates, the way wikipedia does it.

That second one means that editing the Main page should be a much rarer occurence. When you make an edit you're proud of, please share it with the world! Here's how:

  1. Edit Template:Featured Article and replace what's there with a very short synopsis of the article you're featuring.
  2. Edit Template:Previously Featured and add a link to the article you deleted in step 1.
  3. Trim "Previously Featured" to a maximum of 20 articles.

Let me emphasize: this is your website. If you believe your latest edit should be featured on the main page, do it. If it's been a week or so since anything new was featured, pick something and feature it! Spblat 14:58, 12 May 2005 (PDT)

Sounds good to me. The main page looks great! Shiro 03:56, 13 May 2005 (PDT)


Is there a list of shows that aren't available on Also, is there a news page? Heath issues have been mentioned on his site and I haven't seen any new shows (or even reposting of old shows) in months. --MrWoohoo 22:57, 14 Mar 2006 (PST)

Welcome MrWoohoo! To respond: I don't have such a list. By all means, feel free to start one! It's woefully true that not much has happened in the Joe Frank universe lately. For that matter, if you'd like to see a News page, feel free to launch that too--I might even be convinced to craft a space for it on the main page (similarly to the way hrwiki does it). In my own world, hearing Spacebeach while my iPod was in shuffle mode recently made me think warmly of Joe and his work, and then I was lucky enough to see Night Watch / Nochnoi Dozor / Ночной Дозор, a bizarre and interesting movie for which Joe voiced the American version of the trailer. According to a 3/1/06 update on Joe's site, they're all still there, and Joe is "relocating". I hope he's well. Spblat 21:20, 15 Mar 2006 (PST)
I'd like to extend another welcome to MrWooHoo. One idea might be to create Category:Not Available Online and then include all the unavailable programs in that category. Sounds like it could be quite a useful list.
Funny you should mention coming across Joe's music, Spblat. A couple of days ago I found myself sitting still at work thinking through a Joe monologue in real time. Took me a couple minutes to realize that my headphones were playing Bumpin' On the Sunset, a song Joe uses in several programs. (My recording is on Michel Petrucciani's Date with Time album. I have no idea which recording Joe uses. Never got around to trying to figure it out.)
I saw Night Watch last week as well. I remember seeing the trailer and being intrigued by it before I'd ever heard of the movie. I'm sorry to say I didn't catch Joe's voice in the wild. Shiro 00:00, 19 Mar 2006 (PST)
