You are including the 'Today in Trek history' pages in the main page. The problem: The day articles (e.g. 12 April) have interlanguage links. Because they are not inside a <noinclude>-Statement, theese are added to the main page causing the interlanguage links in the same language to fail. Same problem in other languages using it the same way. Possible solution: Put the interlanguage links at the day articles inside a <noinclude>-Statement (I'm not sure if this will be handled correctly by pywikipedia interwiki bots). --Avatar@Wikia 12:35, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Some of those links were added by my bot during a recent "interwiki" run. The bot adds new interlanguage links to a noinclude-section if at least one IL link already exists there (see, for example, this diff). This obviously fails on pages that didn't have any IL links before. Since the noinclude section seems to include other stuff in most cases, I'm not sure this is a task for an automated bot run - I'm working on it nonetheless. -- Cid Highwind 12:34, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
