Today's POTDEdit

The first sentence says, “Although Mars is smaller than the Earth and 50 percent further...” It should be “farther” here, not “further.” Generally speaking, use farther when referring to literal, physical distance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.218.206.143 (talk) 05:06, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

General discussionEdit

AfD started for List of historical anniversaries which is linked from Main PageEdit

There is talk of deleting the above "List" which is linked from OTD. I have no opinion on the deletion nomination. It may leave us with a predicament here and we should prepare for the possibility.

I propose we implement the changes I made at {{SelAnnivFooter/sandbox}} in case the page is deleted. You can preview how it looks at Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/September 13. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 16:38, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Why does the main page link to this instead of elsewhere? Does it have a purpose? Dream Focus 13:13, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Not that I can see. I think the alternative I suggested is better. My suggested page does, however, take a few seconds to load. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 01:39, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
@Coffeeandcrumbs: I'm not sure that will work as the OTD pages are only prepped for the current year (for moveable anniversaries and article quality) a few days in advance. October, November, December in your view would show the observances for 2019 until they get updated for 2020. Nice idea though. Stephen 03:51, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
That is a predicament. But thinking about it made me realize we can automate movable anniversaries. Muslim holidays are going to be difficult. But things like "first Monday in June" etc. should be calculable. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 02:55, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Some could be automated, but wouldn’t you have to have the script in each possible day, where it only renders if true for the correct day for the current year. And good luck with Easter which bounces around with the ecclesiastical full moon! Maybe Wikidata could be used to drive the dates of an anniversary? Stephen 09:55, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
Well, I learned Template:Calendar date exists. I am discussing its adaption for use at OTD over here. It may be a pipe dream but it seems like it would save us a lot of work. --- C&C (Coffeeandcrumbs) 21:47, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
The AfD has closed in keep.  Nixinova T  C   22:28, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
