Protection policy link[edit]

I recall that the link to WP:Protection policy#Semi-protection in an image caption formerly used {{srlink}}. Is there a discussion explaining why this isn't done anymore? I couldn't find any such discussion on a quick look through the talk archives. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 22:09, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Resolved: I didn't see that it already uses {{srlink}}, because {{srlink}} now styles the link no differently from an ordinary wikilink. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 23:15, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Time is "over"[edit]

Why are we declaring Time is over when there are already more frames? It "ended" on 3094 but there are currently 3102... Some guy (talk) 05:29, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps because the author wrote "THE END" and the rest of the frames are evidently going to be a raft bobbing in the water. But both conclusions are WP:OR, we need a reliable secondary source to tell us it's over for sure. Elizium23 (talk) 05:31, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

A better image for XKCD[edit]

Wouldn't the 1000th comic be a better opening image for XKCD rather then a random comic? Just a suggestion Discmon (talk) 07:45, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

It all depends on the license. Most xkcd's are CC-BY-NC (attribution, non-commercial), which aren't Fair Use compatible. Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 13:13, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Incorrect Dropbox password easter egg[edit]

The Dropbox/correcthorsebatterystaple field under "Inspired Activities" is wrong. I just tried it, and it worked fine. 144.96.89.93 (talk) 07:00, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

You were probably using spaces between the words, then. If you use no spaces, it does give the easter egg that this article describes. I tried it again myself just now to verify. 66.55.135.219 (talk) 12:54, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
