These are a series of “content modules” I built in 2008 for the WetPaint wiki network to display site additions like new threads, new members, photos, featured content, related content, or recent site activity. I built a WetPaint website to demonstrate these little widgets and explain more about the purpose and development of them. You can also play around with the many features on my module play page. The site is open for anyone to edit, so have fun.
For those unfamiliar, Wetpaint is a network where anyone can build their own free private or public wiki for a wide variety of purposes such as entertainment fansites, education, and political activism. They have a million or so sites, and all new sites are automatically loaded with several of these modules.
