Wikipedia Attribution Survey dates[edit]

So this edition of Signpost is dated 2nd March and gives notice of a discusion to take place that "will be disabled on 1 March 2009" - bit late now isn't it ? David Ruben Talk 23:48, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

You're going to be so embarrassed when you go back and look at the words that precede your quoted text. ;) - BanyanTree 03:36, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
The central notice was disabled. The survey is still active.--ragesoss (talk) 04:14, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Hehe, Thanks for the chuckle. §hepTalk 04:17, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok ok, so the survey is still active (but not the impression given with the final comment about something now being closed). However then the comment about the CentralNotice (vs the survey itself) is definitely wrong: 3rd sentence "The survey is currently being advertised via a CentralNotice" yet the last sentence refutes the "is currently" with "The CentralNotice was disabled on 1 March 2009". That 3rd sentence should read "The survey was advertised until 1 March 2009 via a CentralNotice" and the final one dropped :-) David Ruben Talk 00:21, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
Ya, I forgot to update that part. My chuckle wasn't at you though, reading it again that looked mean. I was scared to death that I had put something completely wrong for who knows how many people to read. I'll try to fix it up. Thanks for the help, §hepTalk 21:52, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
