Updates to the Main Page are looking nice! Sgtstretch (talk) 14:46, 18 April 2017 (CEST)

I'm happy you like it. Brad likes it. Still waiting to hear back from Aykray whether he's happy with the use of the colouring pic. I hope he will be. --Memm (talk) 14:48, 18 April 2017 (CEST)

Ideas Dump[edit]

  • Main page boxes:
    • Show latest Field Notes Colors,
    • Podcast episodes,
    • Other Subscriptions?? - Baron Fig?, Artsnacks?
  • Ingest other podcasts?:
    • Art Supply Posse,
    • Dot Grid,
    • Anderson Pens,
    • Goulet Pens,
    • Goulet Q&A,
    • Penmanship?
  • Follow Q&A episodes on other podcasts (most of TPA has been tagged--most)
  • Resources Master List:
    • Glossary / Anatomy of Stationery Products images / pages
    • 'Required Listening' / Significant Episodes (for new listeners)
    • Master Chronology of Episodes (would include the cross-hosting and 'weaving' of episodes between shows (like B-Sides, Inquisitive, Art Supply Posse, etc.)
    • Ana's Master Refill post
    • Social / Regional / Internet Groups:
      • Pen Addicts Worldwide (FB)
      • PenAddict Slack
      • Field Nuts (FB)
      • Fountain Pen Network
    • Conference List / Map?
    • Fan-creations (from games, to color pages, to ancillary notes, to pronunciation soundboards)
    • Transcripts?? (At least for the Q&A portions, I know it is very time consuming)

Could that be done with dictation software? Audio is very clear, so it might work for 90% of the dialogue. --Memm (talk) 12:07, 22 April 2017 (CEST)

That's what I was thinking, letting the dictation software do a full run and then human(s) goes through to buff out the rough parts.

I thought it may be helpful to spin out the transcript pages as their own page per episode. My thinking was that the transcripts wouldn't completely fill up the episode pages, and so that we can do transcript-specific notes, edits, and links. --aykray (talk) 16:13, 26 April 2017 (CEST)

Sounds great. We could link to the transcripts from the main episode page and put it at e.g. The Pen Addict 253/transcript - we could put the computer version there so everyone can help to fix it. --Memm (talk) 16:25, 26 April 2017 (CEST)

That's what I was thinking. Crowdsource the transcription tweaking (and could allow for possible translations in the future (thinking real far off)). --aykray (talk) 16:28, 26 April 2017 (CEST)

Conference List/Map[edit]

I know that [this] already exists, but only one person is allowed to edit it, so added/replacing info is a pain. I think something like this would be a good idea. Sgtstretch (talk) 02:21, 23 April 2017 (CEST)

Good idea. There is a map extension for Mediawiki, but send like a lot of effort long term with updates etc. We could start a page for now and if it takes off we try to get the map extension to work. --Memm (talk) 19:15, 23 April 2017 (CEST)

Template Talk[edit]

  • People

Adding a Backstory section to People pages, since almost all guests on TPA get asked that by Brad.

  • Podcast episode

Add a 'Network' field on the summary box, and be able to denote specific network(s) per episode, or if they're Independent?

Import from Wikipedia?[edit]

There's several pages that could be imported directly from Wikipedia. I'd do it myself, but import privileges are required.

SnorkelFiller (talk) 21:37, 23 August 2018 (CEST)

Seems like a great idea. So far I have used copy and past and added the Creative Commons backlinks manually. Our templates are different, so direct imports would presumably result in errors from missing templates. I had a quick look and think import privileges only come with admin status and can't be granted without making a user an admin. Based on how much you have contributed in a short time we could probably decide to make you an admin soon if you are interested. --Memm (talk) 22:52, 23 August 2018 (CEST)
Copy/paste works - I’ll start moving them over. No rush on the admin thing. SnorkelFiller (talk) 04:51, 24 August 2018 (CEST)
Thank you for that. -- 18:25, 24 August 2018 (CEST)
