Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/QOTD maintainer needed

In preparation for my two-weeks-long vacation in Turkey, which will begin tomorrow, I simplified the QOTD archive/queue system. Still, someone to fill the queue is needed. Now quotes will be fetched from the queue automatically every day.

So far, I inserted all quotes that reached +10 votes into the queue as soon as they did. You may, however, adopt another system, or decide on one in a discussion.

To add a quote to the queue, do the following:

  • I can handle it for the next two weeks.–SentryTalk 21:18, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
    • We really need to discuss and establish some community approved rules for maintaining the QOTD page. At the moment, I am adding a quote to the queue when it recieves a total vote count of +10 (or more) and removing it from the page if it recieves a total of five negative votes. It is easier to maintain the page that way, but it requires that users actively vote against quotes that they don't like in order to get rid of them. Does anyone have any bright ideas?–SentryTalk 19:57, 27 August 2006 (UTC)
      • Consider using a time limit instead of negative vote count. If a quote doesn't get to +5 after a some time period (a month?) it gets deleted or moved to a waiting list. This isn't perfect either. It'd require a date when a quote is added and people not messing with it. -Finlayson 02:34, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Yeah, that would work. I was trying to avoid using a timeout system because on such a large page it would be very difficult to maintain… But it might be the only solution.–SentryTalk 23:08, 28 August 2006 (UTC)
          • I opened a CT discussion at Forum:QOTD vote counting and timeouts. (By the way, Sentry, I'm returning home tomorrow, so you can relieve yourself of the QOTD duties if you wish. - Sikon (Vacation) 12:14, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
            • Thank God. I will be happy to retire :) –SentryTalk 21:29, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
            • Quick question, but why do some quotes just go off the quote page? The one I noticed was the Vergere Everything I tell you is a lie quote. It was on, had lots of votes, and now its gone Jaster 12:26, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
              • They're added to the queue. - Sikon (Vacation) 12:31, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
