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==

==Video on front page==

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 protocolsShould 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.

*'''[[User:Jasonk|Jasonk]] 02:31, 11 July 2006 (EDT)''':That's an awesome video, I think we could put it on the front page for a little bitWould be good if we could get google video to show up slightly smaller, though, if possible. Also, I added the topic to the SC agenda, so we can decide on thursday.

*'''[[User:Jennyn|Jennyn]] 00:20, 13 April 2006 (EDT)''': How about, "[[User:Skosuri|Sri]] enjoys sharing his protocols." Present-tense transitive verbs --link directly to the object, keep sentences short, and maintains a business-casual writing style (or whatever would be in between formal and informal). We can save the he-said/she-said for a really awesome quote -- i.e. [[User:Skosuri|Sri]] enjoys sharing his protocols. "It gives me an edge in the lab and makes me feel like a superhero," he states (or adds, says, proclaims with a raised fist, etc).
+
*'''[[User:Bcanton|BC]] 11:10, 11 July 2006 (EDT)''': I like the video and would like to see it posted.  My only concern would be if we might run into any browser compatability issues with a video on the front page.  If that might be a problem we could post an image of a screen capture from the video that links to the actual video.  I second Jason's suggestion that it might be better if it was slightly smaller.
 +
*'''[[User:Austin|Austin]] 12:54, 11 July 2006 (EDT)''': The current format doesn't make it clear what the video is about. I would expect a video explaining OWW on the front page at that location and a visitor could easily mistake the video of the people running OWW or something of that sort.
 +
*'''[[User:Skosuri|Sri Kosuri]] 13:11, 11 July 2006 (EDT)''': Wow! This is great. Thanks for organizing and putting this together everyone.  I agree that there should be some text describing the video, as well as it being a little smaller.

'''--[[User:Johncumbers|Johncumbers]] 09:58, 14 April 2006 (EDT)''' looks good, I'll write something about the year.. "A year in review perhaps" we could also add it to a list of yearly highlights that we do each year.

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.

This way, we are able to see the previous highlight directly below the new highlight. For archiving, we will reproduce the "div" and have all of the highlights scroll downwards in order.

Similar to lab highlights, 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. [[OpenWetWare:Highlights/protocolhighlights/ | Protocol highlights]]

Video on front page

Is it too much

  • Jasonk 02:31, 11 July 2006 (EDT):That's an awesome video, I think we could put it on the front page for a little bit. Would be good if we could get google video to show up slightly smaller, though, if possible. Also, I added the topic to the SC agenda, so we can decide on thursday.
  • BC 11:10, 11 July 2006 (EDT): I like the video and would like to see it posted. My only concern would be if we might run into any browser compatability issues with a video on the front page. If that might be a problem we could post an image of a screen capture from the video that links to the actual video. I second Jason's suggestion that it might be better if it was slightly smaller.

Protocol highlights This never got off the ground, can people suggest a protocol to start with perhaps? what's a good example?

Ideas: lab highlights

Lab highlights So this is working, sort of, I'm always late in publishing them! please suggest new labs to be highlighted.

Ideas: Image highlights

image highlights Highlights Image of the week/month/stash of images that rotate as a link from the front page.

Video Highlights

video highlights e.g video of the month is linked from the main page.

Layout

Jennyn 13:27, 15 June 2006 (EDT): I'm just posting my idea that I gave at the SC meeting so I don't forget it. We should arrange 3 columns X 2 rows for highlights.

  • Column 1 - Community/OWW Highlights
  • Column 2 - Protocol Highlights
  • Column 3 - Lab Highlights (we should highlight labs that have recently been published, have interesting research, etc, etc).

This way, we are able to see the previous highlight directly below the new highlight. For archiving, we will reproduce the "div" and have all of the highlights scroll downwards in order. This will help users and ourselves know what has been highlighted, etc. I had a go at what I think you mean, not sure about the div part. --Johncumbers 21:55, 10 July 2006 (EDT)

To do

  • Sort out the templates/inserts, e.g on main page highlights page so the are all like the lab highlights is.
