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)

Where can I find this?[edit] Appears to have been archived, but I can't find it. J.A.R.N.Y.|🗣 17:45, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Here. ~ DanielTom (talk) 08:10, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Star Trek on war/X lengthy work of fiction on Y subject.[edit]

if a particular work of fiction has a plethora of particularly "relevant" quotes pertaining to a particular subject, would it be permissible to give it a subsection? CensoredScribe (talk) 00:18, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

"This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Wikiquote:Village pump page." – See above. ~ Ningauble (talk) 00:28, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps it best I erred and not waste any one's time with this trivial matter anyways, my apologies. CensoredScribe (talk) 00:59, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
