Can someone explain why this picture is POTD level? How is it examplary, inspiring, impressive or even relevant (being from 2012)? -DePiep (talk) 18:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Wikipedia's featured pictures are determined by consensus. The discussion which led to said image gaining FP status was here. If you believe that the image does not meet the criteria, you are free to nominate it for delisting at WP:FPC — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:15, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Birmingham Quran manuscript[edit]

@Crisco 1492: Birmingham Quran manuscript is now promoted. Do think that the pic has the chance to appear on the main page. Mhhossein (talk) 12:54, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes, it will. Generally there is an 18 month delay, but something like this could (and probably will) be scheduled for date relevance earlier. Eid al-Adha will be in late September, and that would be a decent date to run this. Not because of the verses shown, but because of the Quran's importance in Islam. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:13, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
@Crisco 1492: WOW! That's a brilliant idea. Yes, Quran is very important to Muslims. سپاسگزارم. Mhhossein (talk) 18:36, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
Chris Woodrich: Eid al-Adha will be on 23 September and I just meant to remind you that. Btw, Can I have a suggestion for the caption? Mhhossein (talk) 11:49, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Yep. Another editor added the tomb (I'm assuming for Eid as well). I've opened up the template at Template:POTD/2015-09-23 if you want to add a blurb. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:48, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

protected version of POTD[edit]

Why enwiki creates additionally protected version of POTD with subst? I think Cascading protection is enough for normal POTH page. There is no need to create additionally protected version. --Mavrikant (talk) 16:46, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Different layout. howcheng {chat} 17:21, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
@Howcheng: Are you sure there is no anything special? We(trwiki) are gonna delete all protected versions and use normal versions on main page. --Mavrikant (talk) 15:13, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
If we could go with one template, we would have done it. We also wanted to make sure that the regular POTD was editable by anyone. howcheng {chat} 15:49, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
