I probably should have posted this earlier, but many thanks for jumping on board and helping out at POTD in the past few weeks/months. It certainly makes life easier not to have to worry about getting every day's blurb up to scratch in time, and to have someone else who is prepared to do the leg work of making sure the material posted is properly cited and up-to-scratch. Thank you for this and all the other excellent work you do on the Wiki, Ravenpuff.  — Amakuru (talk) 14:12, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for quality articles such as Gaudete et exsultate and List of titular churches, for updating the history of images and hooks used in DYK, for dealing with In the news and Main page errors, for sensible redirects and page moves to better capitalisation, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Template:POTD/2019-10-28Edit

Is there a reason, you bolded a link, which doesn't even contain the image? Armbrust The Homunculus 19:49, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

@Armbrust: As I see it, I don't think it's strictly necessary to bold a link that contains the picture for POTD, especially because "Francis Bacon" is the most suitable link for the image here; "Reginald Gray" would not be descriptive of the picture and could become confusing for readers. Anyway, I've re-added the FP to Bacon's article due to its EV. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 00:52, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

PercentEdit

MOS:PERCENT says that the words are "commonly used"; it does not mandate that we use the words. howcheng {chat} 03:18, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

@Howcheng:: It does so indeed, but I've always seen it as a recommendation at the very least, considering that it forms part of the MOS. Either way, I'm not too fussed about which style makes it into the OTD section; I understand that brevity is important in the hooks. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 15:12, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Template:POTD/2020-11-03Edit

Hi! I'm curious why the article 1966 flood of the Arno is not eligible to be featured and was postponed. I apologize if it's something obvious, but I'm not really familiar with the enwp process; I was involved in uploading the UNESCO photographs so I'm trying to track how they're doing on Wikipedia :) --Alicia Fagerving (WMSE) (talk) 12:43, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

@Alicia Fagerving (WMSE): No worries! For a featured picture to appear on the Main Page, the associated article (bolded in the blurb) needs to be of decent quality to be eligible; this is why some FPs may take years to be scheduled for POTD, if at all. The 1966 flood of the Arno article, in particular, has one section tagged with {{more citations needed}}, which is almost always a disqualifying factor for an article to be bolded on the Main Page. In fact, if the picture is to be featured next year, the article needs to be in good shape by that time; if not, it may be delayed further or removed from the POTD queue for the time being – you could help improve the page in the meantime if you would like to see it featured. I hope this clarifies the situation adequately. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 13:30, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
