What happened to "picture of the week?"

Postby skyop » Tue Aug 31, 2010 1:57 am

It used to run weekly on the wiki, but now all I see are red links to nonexistent templates. :( What happened?

What happened is that nobody but me seems to maintain it. :(

Well, you don't have to take it over completely. Anyone could create POTWs in advance. When you add a nice screenshot to the wiki (to an article with atleast some content), feel free to create a POTW.

During the last couple of weeks, there were plenty of excellent pictures posted to the forum.
If we could get the image creators to add/upload these to the wiki, you would have plenty of pictures to work with.

To be honest, in my opinion ALL of Thorsten's screenshots would even directly qualify for "picture of the month" !! :-)
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
Hooray
