If not English, in what language is this proposal submitted?:


The option to view English Wikipedia using a font similar to those used in 1980s video games


A font that looks like something out of a 1980s video game like Pac-Man or Space Invaders


This optional font can help get more children born between 1981 and 1990 interested in reading and writing English Wikipedia article as they see that font as being nostalgic to their younger days.

Key Questions

  • How are we going to get this font into English Wikipedia?
  • Will lower case letters become small capital letters?
  • Should we allow all users this option or just registered members?
  • Should it be downloaded or activated by the options screen?

Potential Costs

Just time and energy to get the font running successfully in English Wikipedia
