What do you think about archiving the VP? I feel a 336,504 byte page is somehow intimidating. What if we archived all the materials until this August except related ones to the ongoing discussion? I mean Image usage related discussions but if you think of some other ones, please point them out. Thought? --Aphaia (talk) 11:52, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

@Aphaia: Agreed. This is browser-breaking length. —Justin (koavf)TCM 13:07, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Searching for quotes and phrases[edit]

One should be able to type in a specific quote or phrase and then view all instances of these appearing on Wikiquote. Instead you get instances of every word in the quote or phrase, which results in a largely useless mess of links. Enclosing a quote or phrase in parentheses doesn't work. Can anything be done about this? It seems to me to be a fundamentally useful/important feature of a quote archive. 19:23, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Try using quotation marks. ~ DanielTom (talk) 19:36, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
