The featured listing is very well deserved - very well done to all the contributors who have brought this page to the standard achieved. --JohnArmagh 5 July 2005 07:00 (UTC)

Thanks :) Well, for the record, I think we copied the German version, and then translated and tidied. Perhaps we ought to tell them where we have found some mistakes - a diff between the original version and the current version should pick up the infelicities in the original. -- ALoan (Talk) 5 July 2005 11:40 (UTC)

Something is wrong with this graph. Pius IX's bar graph seems rather small, and is in fact smaller than Gregory XVI, when in truth it should be considerably bigger than most of the ones around it, being he holds the longest pontificate after Peter. --Supersexyspacemonkey 20:39, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Looks OK to me - the labels are to the right of the relevant line - does that help? -- ALoan (Talk) 20:53, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Bar colours[edit]

Great list -- just one small nitpick: The red and green bar colours chosen are very difficult to tell apart for me, and, I'd venture to guess, to others with red-green colour blindness. Would it be possible e.g. to use a darker (and/or more blue-containing) green?

How about the following example, using blue and red (do many people have red/blue colour blindness?)

Until 250[edit]

Looks fine to me -- and from what I've read about colourblindness, I believe those colours should be easily distinguishable to anyone whose vision is not fully monochromatic (or, well, missing). Thanks!

Pope Nicholas I 855 – 867

browser problem[edit]

I can see this very nice list using Safari, but all the graphics part seems to be invisible on Firefox 2.0. I'll play around with the FF settings a little. DGG 06:13, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Font size[edit]

Is there a way to alter the size of the font in the lists? My eyes suck and the text is much too small, and I'm sure the same is true for a lot of other people out there. Kaotac (talk) 08:23, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
