In the table under Lists of featured content, the number of former featured articles has a thousands comma and the numbers in the top row don't. I tried to find where these numbers are being formatted but couldn't figure out how the series of transclusions works. —Nizolan(talk) 20:35, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Cut down on the weird links
Since this page is the third link in the main sidebar, and gets 5,000 daily pageviews (!), can we trim it of some of the weird links? The table at the beginning is confusing and unappealing even to an editor like me—entries like "3493 / T" or "FLRC / T" aren't going to be parseable to the average reader of Wikipedia. I'd say we don't really want an interested reader who's never edited to be directly clicking on a link to Wikipedia talk:Featured topics anyway—the description at Wikipedia:Featured topics would be a better overview and from there they could investigate some of the internal links further if they were keen. And the main FA, FL, FT, FP links are already present at the top of the lists of recently promoted content. So I propose we scrap this table entirely.
Then there's also the odd collection of links under the header "Featured content procedures"; I can't imagine that the first two are even useful to any editors and none of the links are great for a casual reader. Again, I'd like to scrap it entirely. And lastly, the "Shortcuts" box is too cluttered and distracting to a reader who just clicked on a sidebar link—I'd trim it to just "P:FC". I'm posting here rather than just editing because I'd like to hear other people's thoughts, but if there's no response I'll likely take that as consensus and implement these suggestions in a week. — Bilorv (he/him) (talk) 12:12, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
I've implemented all of these changes. I also removed a Signpost template that hasn't been used since 2014. — Bilorv (he/him) (talk) 16:03, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Support. My inclination is like that of User:NaBUru38, but I see good rebuttals by several editors which make sense. This is not a portal page. Based on common practice and examples given in the move request, this page should be moved to Wikipedia pagespace. BusterD (talk) 19:40, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
