Discussion

As stated and pushed by the Admins: The highlighted project should rotate much more frequently. Semimonthly for now, and never more than daily in the future. --Lonny 13:09, 1 December 2006 (PST)

And it should be on a feed, so that readers can get an RSS feed of new highlighted projects. --Lonny 19:35, 7 March 2007 (PST)
