Roger Moore death not mentioned[edit]

Sad that you didn't even mentioned Roger Moore's death in your front page, just added to "Recent deaths", Roger Moore is way more famous than Chris Cornell and you don't even care. The hell with you. Kindoom (talk) 00:59, 29 May 2017 (UTC)


This page has been fixed, so there should be no further problem at this point.

That said, I think if the article on Christmas ended up picking up a couple of orange templates, there is still no way that it would be excluded from OTD on December 25. Maybe in that case, the page would also be fixed. But it seems to me that when one of Judaism's major holidays is coming up for OTD and has a problem, someone should tell us (WT:JUDAISM) instead of simply dropping it.

Given the orange templates had been there since 2013 and 2016, frankly I would have expected the WT:JUDAISM project to be aware of them by now. It is a 'major' holiday apparently. Only in death does duty end (talk) 15:21, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Shavuot is a major holiday, but you make a fair point. I don't really remember what happened last year, and surely we should have caught the 2016 template. The 2013 template is on a section referring to an Essene-Christian interpretation that is frankly unfamiliar to most people who watch that page. It's commented out for now, and after the holiday is over I'll see what I can do about restoring it with a reference, or else permanently deleting it as fringe.

You're wrong about Christmas. We omitted Easter this year because of reference issues. Also, sorry but I have no idea what are major holidays in Judaism besides the big 4 (Hanukkah, Yom Kippur, Rosh, and Passover). Perhaps you all at the WikiProject could spend some time making sure that the holiday/observance articles are all of good quality to begin with? howcheng {chat} 16:41, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
Firstly, the article has been fixed, as mentioned on the main page. As far as holidays, Hanukkah is not a major holiday, the three main holidays are Pesach, Shavuos and Sukkos. Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur are holidays but not one of the Three Festivals . Sir Joseph (talk) 16:45, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
The article is back in, but I'm never going to remember that. The four that I mentioned are what I think are most recognized by us goyim. howcheng {chat} 16:52, 30 May 2017 (UTC)
You're absolutely right about the "Big Four" (the ones recognized by you goyim)(grin). And I give you credit for omitting Easter for reference issues. We'll try to take responsibility for keeping an eye on those articles, but at the same time we'd appreciate a quick ping if a last-minute issue comes up. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:58, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

WP:Today's featured article/October 13, 2017[edit]

I've never had this happen before ... I'll go along with however it's generally handled. Guy makes a change to an old TFA page, I revert saying that the page only serves as an archive, he reverts me. What do you guys do when someone makes a change to one of the pages that serve as archives for past editions of the Main Page? - Dank (push to talk) 02:03, 9 November 2017 (UTC)

I can't recall it ever happening before, but I agree with you that it should be an archive and I've reverted. Let's see what happens now. Jenks24 (talk) 07:01, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. An archive should only be edited on rare occasions, such as when executing an Oversight request of RevDel-ing something. (In either case, they probably would've been done before the page was archived, but whatever.) Gestrid (talk) 09:16, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. I undid their change to an old featured list too. Stephen 09:36, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. - Dank (push to talk) 13:47, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
