Okay, okay, hold on. I see Erik added Crossbone Isle too, even though that's not really a new article, and since it's Erik, I don't feel comfortable removing his edit without asking. Am I totally misunderstanding this template? Because it is always new articles that get put here. Articles that get modified don't usually seem to go here. So, is it supposed to be a template for new articles, or are articles that get major changes alright to add? I'm quite confused... (and totally didn't realise IP Address was Erik at first. Sorry about that.) Kyarorain 09:23, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Hee hee. "Since he's Erik," not "since it's Erik". =D
Now, the way I figure things is that using the Recent template on the main page to project every new little page that is started is just duplicating the purpose that Special:Recentchanges and Special:Newpages serves. Anyone wanting to easily check all the newest page namespaces would normally just go to these two links, and I think it works like that on any wiki. With that in mind, I think it would make more sense to have this different template display articles that have recently been made good and that readers unfamiliar with the wiki would now want to read, whether the article was perfectly created entirely from scratch by me or if it's a year-old page that recently got to perfectly-constructed status because of a lot of small edits.
Right now the Recent Articles box on the Main Page has links to both of those special pages underneath the list of fifteen recent articles...Erik Jensen (Appreciate me here!) 21:25, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
