I'm curious why, after editing the Portal:Mars/Featured picture the new pic did not show up on the main page. Anything else that must be done? I realize the syntax for portal editing is relatively sophisticated.
It appears there is some sort of lag of half-an-hour or an hour for the changes to appear (at least on my browser). Anyhow, all changes are now up. The page is exactly one month old and there is a nice bit of serendipity in posting a new featured article and pic today. I'm going to drop the merge notice; there appears to be little support for it. Marskell 17:18, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

I'd just like to let everyone know that this Portal is not forgotten. I just updated the article and image and I'll try to get around to updating on like a schedule of once every two weeks. If you guys want to help me out, please go for it! --Cyde Weysvotetalk 20:30, 27 December 2005 (UTC)
I'd like to make big changes to this page in an effort to overcome some of the problems with the 'watch' function on portal pages - since this page isn't used much it seems a good place to start - comments? sbandrews (t) 18:47, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Hi, I would like some new thoughts on this portal. I have developed it in the recent months so it updates every month. Particularily, I would like comments about the news section and the image section. Thanks for taking your time to review this! Shrewpelt (talk) 17:02, 22 March 2008 (UTC)
Like the colors, for the news section try the WikiNews Importer Bot.
Done Or at least, I hope it is. Shrewpelt (talk) 15:28, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
All of the selected articles should be generally the same length.
Do you mean the length of the actual article, or the summary shown on the portal? Shrewpelt (talk) 14:43, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
It would be nice if all the selected images had credits.
I doubt it's just me, but with Firefox 2 on MacOS X the boxes look off: the header bar is below the line of the top of the box, but the "edit" link at the right of the box doesn't line up with the box title (so it's half in and half out of the header bar). If you can't see what I'm seeing, let me know and I'll fiddle with it myself. Msanford T 03:05, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Comment I don't have that problem with IE 7 Windows Vista... §tepshep • ¡Talk to me! 05:21, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
I believe it's most common to put the Related Wikimedia, Related Portals, and Categories at the very bottom of the portal page. Not that not doing so is particularly problematic in itself, but people will probably expect to see it elsewhere. Others, feel free to give counter-opinions! Msanford T 03:05, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
