Re: main page redesign
Posting here since this is getting off topic for the Central Processing thread.
but it's a Doom website, so I don't think you'll have a problem It isn't quite that simple unfortunately. See here for some recent discussion. If the central wikia has elaborated somewhere on its initial statement that "GFDL images are strongly preferred", feel free to point me there! I'm fresh out of ideas myself, and AFAICT our other regular contributors have all been around the Doom community for a decade or more, and therefore have already made their peace with copyright law (one way or another).
We were always planning on helping out wikis (especially the big ones) - but it's hard to announce that as then everybody might expect us to do it for them As I said on the listserv, I sympathize with Wikia's line of reasoning about the ads, but I don't find this funny at all. It is an example of the duplicity of which the staff was accused on the forum.

- Fair use is a how you can use copyright images - this is a Doom website, so I don't see how it would be likely to be violating fair use, unless it was used copiously.
- The second quote was not intended to be humourous - it is a statement of fact. Kirkburn (talk) 20:07, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
- Ah, I think I see where confusion arose regarding the post on http://lists.wikia.com/pipermail/wikia-l/2008-June/003072.html - that was not referring to main pages. Kirkburn (talk) 20:15, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
