Navbox harmonisation[edit]

This item should probably be updated along conventional naxbox template look, as seen on its Swedish version sv:Mall:Aktuella diskussioner. Chicbyaccident (talk) 13:11, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Speedy deletion: Salina Vortex[edit]


I have been working for months to create the Salina Vortex wikipedia page. All research I do shows that the information I'm presenting should be viewed as factual, non-biased, neutral content - yet I keep getting denied publishing and have recently been placed on the Speedy Deletion list. I am wondering if I can receive any advice on how to comply with Wikipedia's stringent rules.

Thank you.

Template-protected edit request on 14 September 2018 — add link & alt to the image + more Village pump links[edit]

Implemented in {{Centralized discussion/core/sandbox}}.

Add link= to image
The image Treffpunkt.svg looks very much like a button, and I suspect readers may be confused by not getting anywhere after clicking or tapping on it.
Add alt= to image
I'm not sure what User:Gnevin meant by this edit in 2010, but it seems to be the opposite of what MOS:ICON#Remember accessibility for the visually impaired recommends today.
Add more Village pump links
Currently, {{Centralized discussion}} links to policy, proposals, and ideas sections of Village pump. The word "Discussions" doesn't do much before the "ideas" link. I added two links to other Village pump sections, and made the formatting consistent in that row.

—⁠andrybak (talk) 22:15, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

 Partly done: I agree the extra Pump links are necessary (though I've changed it so "Proposals:" is not linked). I have not done the other requests because I feel these changes likely need a consensus and/or more discussion. Specifically, not all CENT discussions are at the Pump, and adding a link there might actually cause more confusion (and I suspect the "confusion" of having an image that isn't a link lasts for about half a second). This invalidates the alt= request, as MOS:ICON says that functional images should have alt text (which this is currently not) and thus adding alt text is not necessarily required.

Primefac, maybe a link to Wikipedia:Centralized discussion would be more appropriate? —⁠andrybak (talk) 18:56, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
There does not seem to be any reason why people would visit WP:CD. The "view" link at the bottom of T:CD links to a good location, anyway. Really what we should do is merge T:CD and WP:CD, as they duplicate each other anyway, but that's not a discussion for this thread. I don't think the current icon looks too much like a button; I think the fix for that would be changing the icon, not making it a link. Enterprisey (talk!) 06:18, 20 September 2018 (UTC)


I think this discussion would profit from sitewide editor opinions, given that it sets precedent on how outside influences affect our style guide. I'm not a CENT regular, so dropping here for your consideration. If anyone agrees, please list it. (not watching, please {{ping}}) czar 14:07, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Didn't realize that the template's talk page redirected... I think it would be useful to have a venue for the above vetting as it doesn't seem like VP is the right place to elevating items to CENT. Anyway, thanks. czar 15:22, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
@Czar:I think advertising the RFC at WT:MOS is pretty reasonable. --Izno (talk) 15:34, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
