Weekly Archived Article[edit]

I think we should add a section to the main page, with a different article from the archives each week, called "This Week's Archived Article", or something to that effect, in a way similar to Wikipedia's "Today's Featured Article". This would help make the main page more lively, which, in turn, would probably bring in a few new readers. --Queen Laura (talk) 19:57, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

I've got a somewhat similar feature on the replacement I'm designing for the archives splash page, at User:Pi zero/Archives. The old version of the page had had such a thing but it required someone to manually adjust it over time, as the number of years in the archive increased, so of course it didn't get maintained. I tried to set up mine to work without manual intervention, which sort-of worked. It didn't quite work out as neatly as I wanted it to; and I hadn't thought of it in terms of whether it'd be suitable for the main page. --Pi zero (talk) 20:39, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
