Wikiquote talk:Village pump
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)❤T☮C☺M☯ 13:07, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Searching for quotes and phrases
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. 22.214.171.124 19:23, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Star Trek on war/X lengthy work of fiction on Y subject.
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)

Confusing category: Village Pump Archive?
Hello, I suggest that the category Village Pump Archive be removed from this page because it’s confusing: this isn’t an archive at all. @GreenMeansGo: What’s your opinion? ~ Josephina • Talk 2 Me 23:44, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
When will the pump be archived again?
I noticed that archive 52 extends from 21 January 2018 to January 20, 2019, is the pump now only archived on a yearly basis? 84 current topics is quite a few to move through, and may intimidate people from using the pump and prevent cluttering it with even more, just looking at the archived pages for 2014-2016 it can be seen that the pump used to be archived about three times a year and the number of topics was always below 50. I don't know if a formal vote is required, but I think a return to form would be an improvement and we've "let ourselves go" a bit, since the last half of 2017.
