So, what I am proposing is the sitewide use of any number of scripts developed on the FANDOM Open Source Library intended increase the visibility of Discussions, make Discussions Moderation easier, & make interaction with the newest generation of Discussions-only users more bearable. Beyond that, I propose a couple aesthetic alterations.
First, is a script authored by one of my fellow Vanguards, which includes a feed of the latest Discussion posts in the right rail. The purpose of this would be to increase traffic to Discussions, & foster more interaction between editors & Discussions users. An example configuration can be seen below:
Second is a script authored by Flightmare, & what it does is transclude the Community App Bios onto user-pages that do not exist (i.e. those of users who have only interacted with the wiki via Discussions). It is useful to more easily allow non-App (Desktop) users to get to know the Discussions users with whom they may be interacting. An example is below:
All that said, I don’t expect all or even most of these scripts to be installed, these are just my recommendations. In point of fact, it would probably most ideal if any of the first three scripts were made into Gadgets that were enabled by default; that way, the visibility & tools would be available, but for those who did not want to see them, they would be able to disable the Gadgets in Special:Preferences.
Finally, while I believe the idea of a Header Graphic has been rejected, the Community Page, which is prominently linked in the Top Navigation, has a bland, default banner, & I think it could use a Dragon Age themed image. If that idea sounds good, Help:Community Page has details about it. I was told that a community vote for any of these proposals would have to take place, but as I do not know how this Wiki carries out its votes (& because I think it would be presumptuous of me) I have simply laid out these recommendations, & everyone can make of them what they would.
