Among the ideas we discussed, there was the addition of a slideswhow showcasing news and events in the main page. Im pretty sure some of you must have seen this feature in action in some wikis. This will also allow you to replace your current <gallery> with a more fan-friendly slideshow for galleries that will also take less space.
However, to enable such feature, wikia require us to do a community vote, so the purpose of this blog is, of course, to gather your opinions. Please let us know what you think.
