If this page was moved to Wikipedia talk:In the news/Administrator instructions, it would be linked to automatically in the top right of the parent page (WP:ITN). See WP:ERRORS for an existing example of this. Modest Genius talk 19:10, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, it doesn't seem to work. What're we missing? Modest Genius talk 21:51, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
A fiddly bit of markup- {{Floatinglink|Administrator instructions|Administrator instructions}}. Well, not th\at fiddly, I copied it from WP:RPP. :) HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 22:15, 4 May 2010 (UTC)


Archives have not been added since June, 2011. I think this should be a task done by administrators in the process of removing old blurbs, as it is a simple step and will avoid four-month-long backups. Mamyles (talk) 13:27, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

The example...[edit]

Is it just me or is the example of a blurb here just bollocks : "The United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration successfully launches"? We never normally link common geographical terms like United States and wouldn't we use common terminology such as NASA rather than the expanded variant?

No, you're right. It is an incredibly weird example to give for the exact reasons you mentioned. Calidum Talk To Me 01:46, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Updated instructions, particularly image-related[edit]

@David Levy:, I've updated the image instructions to include using your cool Wikipedia:Main Page/Commons media protection creation.

  1. Thanks again for creating that, it works a lot slicker than locally uploading
  2. Can you review image instructions when you get a chance, to see if I missed anything?

@Floquenbeam: Thanks very much for updating the instructions (which slipped my mind). You appear to have covered the process thoroughly. —David Levy 18:47, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
