  • The Russian constitutional changes had already been legally adopted, the referendum was only to give them the air of public legitimacy, thus the voters did not vote to amend the constitution. They voted to confirm the changes. 331dot (talk) 17:14, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Is there any way to link Jade trade in Myanmar into the relevant blurb? I think it provides very relevant and useful context for this disaster that previously unfamiliar readers like myself may appreciate. Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 07:04, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Perhaps the blurb can end with “the world’s largest source of high-quality jadeite.” Bzweebl (talkcontribs) 07:09, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Pipe "to amend" into the bold link to avoid the avoidable EASTEREGG. --- C&C () 11:05, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Today's OTD

  • Caption: I understand that this has been revised previously to reduce needless repetition, but it's still slightly inaccurate as it wasn't the space probe itself that impacted the comet; a better wording would be "Tempel 1 after the Deep Impact collision". — RAVENPVFF · talk · 09:30, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Day-after-tomorrow's OTD

  • Malawi - the source given (the Telegraph's "10 fascinating facts about Malawi..." article) doesn't give a date, simply "By 1907, it had taken on the formal name "Nyasaland" - a title which endured until 1964, when the protectorate was dissolved and Malawi became an independent country (becoming a republic two years later)", would have thought that would have been checked. The Rambling Man (Stay indoors, stay safe!!!!) 08:04, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
Indeed, I've switched the ref to this one from an American university that cites the 6 July date - Dumelow (talk) 12:21, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Siege of Fort Ticonderoga (1777) - my reading of this is that their retreat actually started on 5 July, i.e. "On the morning of 5 July, St. Clair held a war council in which the decision was made to retreat. Since their position was completely exposed, they delayed departure until nightfall, when their movements would be concealed". Maybe "completed" their retreat would be better? And the "virtually impregnable" claim appears, unreferenced, in the lead but nowhere else? The Rambling Man (Stay indoors, stay safe!!!!) 08:56, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Dorothy E. Smith - the link to "her" Facebook page doesn't seem to include any reference to her date of birth. Good ol' Wikidata just using that date verbatim with zero references. Poor. The Rambling Man (Stay indoors, stay safe!!!!) 09:29, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
I don't think Template:Facebook is meant to be used that way, nevermind the issues of proving its actually her account. I've switched it for Nancy Reagan which is an FA (and whose birthdate is referenced) - Dumelow (talk) 12:38, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Immediate edit suggestion for Wikipedia:Selected anniversaries/June 25. You're missing out, this should be in Wikipedia:Selected_anniversaries/Holidays_and_observances#Moveable_days so you don't miss out in future years. - hahnchen 10:53, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Articles with orange-level warning templates are not eligible. See WP:OTDRULES, particularly point 5. You'll need to address the problems with the article before it could even be considered for the selected anniversaries list. Modest Genius talk 12:09, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Needs more citations and should not be linked on the Main Page or added to the list until the citations are added 🌸 1.Ayana 🌸 (talk) 11:10, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
