Media archive as a table?

I believe this, although disturbingly long, would be quite beneficial to the site, a bit like the gigs page but for media, we would be able to resort the table by things including dates, origin, format etc. --crazybobbles 14:40, 17 October 2007 (BST)

I think that's a good idea. As time progresses and more stuff gets added, it'd become and even better idea. I think you should implement a date function like Wikipedia's too. --Tene 00:48, 26 October 2007 (BST)

Articles archive

I think you all already know this, but there is a impressive articles' archive at rocketbabydolls.com, here :). -Susurr0 14:09, 30 November 2006 (UTC+1)

Title change

I believe our Media section should be renamed to "Media archive". That would make the purpose of the section more immediately clear. Any objections? --Tene 21:07, 21 March 2007 (GMT)

seconded, i did think the title odd when i first saw it --Wilfio 23:10, 21 March 2007 (GMT)
Yeah. Go for it. --User:Susurr0 11:53, 9 Jul 2007 (UTC+2)
Sounds good, *relabels* --crazybobbles 14:38, 17 October 2007 (BST)

Magazines from different countries

Well, two questions about non-English magazines. First of all, when we create an article with the transcription, do we name the article with the original title or with the translated title? And the second question is: there are some international magazines such as Rolling Stones. When we create the article for each magazine, we name them as "Rolling Stone Mexico (magazine)", "Rolling Stone France (magazine)", etc... but when we create the articles with the transcriptions, do we have to name them as "Example (20070920 Rolling Stone article)" or "Example (20070920 Rolling Stone France article)"?. I hope I was clear. Cheers. --User:Susurr0 11:53, 9 Jul 2007 (UTC+2)

I don't know which way would work best. The reason I named the articles differently with Rock Sound was that the British Rock Sound used to be part of the French one but is now independent, so it's not the same magazine or from the same company.
If we end up with a substantial number of articles then it would be advantageous to reader's sanity to split them up, but if there aren't many then it's just awkward for navigation.
My inclination is to put them all in the same magazine listing but to distinguish them by putting "($date $magazine $country article)" in the title, as well as having different headers on the listing page. I guess it should be put down to a vote. --Tene 21:24, 14 July 2007 (BST)
OK, I created the Rolling Stones' Mexico article just because I translated a little interview from that magazine and I wanted to put it here. I agree with what you say, but you have the power so rename the article or do whatever you have to do with it. --User:Susurr0 21:46, 25 Jul 2007 (UTC+2)
I've got this question again. You didn't answered me so I have to ask again: How do we name the pages for translated articles: in the original language or in English (the title of the feature)? Thanks again :P --Susurr0 23:23, 24 November 2007 (GMT)
English titles would result in easier navigation, this being an English wiki. --Tene 00:38, 25 November 2007 (GMT)

Just Wondering...

Is there any way that this could be changed into less of an eye-sore? (no offense intended to all those who spent countless hours bringing it to such a caliber, as it is now). Maybe by adding logos instead of a long list of names? (Such as the Miscellaneous section at the bottom of Matt's) page?

Old site with several articles

Here. It's basically a copy and past job and I'll make a start on the articles under the "ARTICLES" heading later. ۞ 18:06, 3 February 2008 (GMT)

Sorting articles by year

To make it easier to locate articles, i suggest we start categorizing the interviews by year, instead of by sources? any objections?
