Current DYK[]

  • Shouldn't the item about Greece's leaving the Council of Europe mention that it rejoined five years later? As currently phrased, it incorrectly suggests that Greece still is no longer a member. Newyorkbrad (talk) 08:59, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
    Mmmm, maybe... I mean it's technically true. They did leave, and they are the only state in history to have done so. Whether or not they rejoined isn't directly implied by the hook, and perhaps the hook writers thought it would be more snappy? Happy to change it if people feel it's sufficiently confusing though.  — Amakuru (talk) 09:09, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

General discussion[]

Redesign of main page[]

Hello, I propose that a change be made to main page, that the main page had a new design, following the examples of the Spanish Wikipedia and the Russian Wikipedia main pages. --Rodney Araujo Tell me - My contributions 00:04, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Rodney Araujo Good luck to you, but this is a common proposal, and has never gained consensus, as while there is probably consensus that the main page should be changed, the disagreement is what to change it to. Everyone has their own idea about that. If you really want to pursue this, you should start a much broader discussion or formal request for comment, probably at the village pump. 331dot (talk) 15:08, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia's sister projects/In other projects[]

The projects aren't visible to immediate first sight, when page opens on screen. It would be useful if basic links (without the one-line description) are provided at top of the page (or even as a dropdown menu). --Gpkp [utc] 07:30, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Why? Most users accessing the Main Page are looking for something on Wikipedia, not one of the sister projects. Modest Genius talk 11:57, 29 September 2020 (UTC)
Keeping in concern of the people, who dont know about Wikimedia-Foundation's sister projects, but has just opened wikipedia to search info, isnt it a feed to thier encyclopaediac interest, introducing them to the sister projects, as soon as page opens?
Aren't media repository, species-related, news-related etc. websites worthwhile being featured to the people who dont about them? For example, if a person opens wikipedia page in search of a dictionary word, could navigate to Wikitionary, if he/she finds it at top of page.
I agree google is commerical, but they have their projects listed at top of the page helping easy navigation, irrelevant of the fact, whether the page-visitor is aware of projects or not.

Description of Wikidata[]

Hi there! Does anyone know about the reasoning for the wording of Wikidata as a "free knowledge base"? That seems somewhat detached from the reality of Wikidata, that it's a data-based and computer-readable repository. It seems to represent Wikidata as almost a Q&A sort of platform. Has there been any significant discussion on why it's described as a "free knowledge base" and not something like a "computer-readable data source" or a "data information repository", or something of the sorts? ItsPugle (please ping on reply) 06:30, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Agree. Suggesting: ′Wikiinfo′ . --Gpkp [utc] 07:22, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
