Should the highlights be like:  "I like sharing my protocols" Said OWW's Sri Kosuri  or should it be like:  And Sri said he also likes sharing his protocols.  Should the highlights be formal as in the news or should they be informal community style?  The first is almost sock-puppeting, the second almost not worth it, maybe a happy medium can be found.  Your comments appreciated.

Birthday highlight

The first edit on the Main Page happened on Apr. 20, 1 year ago. Let's highlight OWW first birthday. Maybe Jenny can design a logo. I'm thinking something like a cake with the OWW logo as a single candle.

Formal/informal style for highlights

Should the highlights be like: "I like sharing my protocols" Said OWW's Sri Kosuri or should it be like: And Sri said he also likes sharing his protocols. Should the highlights be formal as in the news or should they be informal community style? The first is almost sock-puppeting, the second almost not worth it, maybe a happy medium can be found. Your comments appreciated. --Johncumbers 01:21, 27 March 2006 (EST)

idea: lab highlights


Lab highlights
Each week we highlight a different lab, lets start from the bottom and work our way up. we message each lab and tell them that their page is due for highlighting on week X, this 1) keeps pages upto date and 2) highlights the lab. To highlight a lab we need, a little icon for the lab, a tagline maybe, and a research summary. we can ask for each of these.


Idea: protocol highlights

Similar to above, we find intersting protocols put them on a list and work our way through highlighting them, letting people know when they are due to be highlighted. Protocol highlights

1) protocol highlight
2) lab highlight
3) community portal highlight
