Fournier 1864?[edit]

The top page on your "check references" list is Hôtel de Lauzun and the main reference there is "Fournier 1864". Don't you think that's a little difficult and specialized for a random newbie to be asked to check? InTheClink (talk) 07:36, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Checking a reference?[edit]

So what is the procedure for checking a reference? It should be like "I checked this reference on this date and it said what it was supposed to" - In the Clink1, and then no-one needs to check it again for a while, unless I turn out to be untrustworthy, then they all need to be checked again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by InTheClink1 (talkcontribs) 09:17, 6 June 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 27 June 2017[edit]

I don't think a discussion of Pomplamoose is complete without a discussion of the fan patronage system that funds them via www.patreon.com[1]Dwlloyd810 (talk) 15:56, 27 June 2017 (UTC)David Lloyd dwlloyd810@gmail.com Dwlloyd810 (talk) 15:56, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

@Dwlloyd810:, you can make this change yourself, just not here. This is the talk page for the Community Portal. You want the Pomplamoose article. That article is not protected so you can edit it yourself. Good luck. Eggishorn (talk) (contrib) 18:39, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Out of date general notice[edit]

The project page talks mentions adding 3 new task lists to the help out section as a discussion to contribute to, but that was recently archived from this talk page. Is the discussion over and should this notice be removed or should the discussion be unarchived? Mehmuffin (talk) 20:42, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Mehmuffin, thanks for bringing that up (I did not know there was a notice on the portal itself)! The proposal has happened several times now, but has never been completely resolved. Last I heard of this, I was requesting that someone step up and make the necessary changes to the /Opentask page to incorporate the new categories, after which I can update SuggestBot's configuration accordingly. If nothing happens in the coming week or so, I suggest we remove the notice from the portal. Pinging The Transhumanist, JoeHebda, and RekishiEJ since they were all pinged in the archived discussion. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 14:11, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Nettrom I don't think anyone but you actually knows how to make the changes that you referred to. Can you be more specific? Is it simply copying and pasting the mock up? The mock up is located at Wikipedia talk:Community portal/Archive 18#Three added sections/topics for Community Portal - Help out. We look forward to your clarification of the process required. Sincerely, The Transhumanist 02:41, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, basically it's just a table with 3 rows and 3 columns that need to have 4 rows, and then check the id-tags of each opening span-tag to make sure they're unique. I copied and pasted the mockup into my sandbox so we can work on it there and make sure it works: User:Nettrom/sandbox/opentask One thing that was proposed was to transclude {{Recent changes article requests}} to list suggested articles for creation. I've done that (bottom left table cell) and noticed that the template doesn't create a list. Is there an easy way to listify it? I couldn't find anything in the documentation. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 21:42, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
By the way, you should include five rather than four articles when transcluding the recent changes article requests template.--RekishiEJ (talk) 01:08, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
RekishiEJ: Last I counted it loaded six articles for me. Not sure how to change that, nor how to make it a list so the design is coherent with the other lists. If you know how, that would be very helpful. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 19:12, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
