mourn? or mourns? Edit

Shouldn't it be MA and the community mourn his death as opposed to mourns his death? Distantlycharmed (talk) 23:12, February 27, 2015 (UTC)

MA mourns. MA and X mourn. I've fixed the grammar. -- sulfur (talk) 02:55, February 28, 2015 (UTC)

Date on Main Page Edit

The date on the main page has been off pretty much all week. For example, on Monday it showed Sunday's date. On Tuesday, it showed Monday's. Is there a way to fix this so it shows the accurate date and Picture of the Day?

Tim The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

It's showing the proper day and date for me, and the proper PotD for today's date as well. I'd check the date setting on your computer, since that's where the date and time displayed on pages comes from. -- Renegade54 (talk) 18:41, March 12, 2015 (UTC)
Non-logged in users are seeing a heavily cached version of the page. It can be off as much as half a week at times. Let wikia know of this problem; they won't fix it, but every little bit that stops them from "breaking" more things helps. - Archduk3 21:41, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

Returning FAs to the main page Edit

Since it's been mentioned several times in a number of different locations since their removal, returing FAs to the main page seems to be a thing people want. The catch is, to keep the size of the page down, something would have to be removed, or significantly reduced in size. I suggest the picture of the day be moved to the side rail under the points of interest box. Since clicking on the image will open a larger version in the lightbox, the actual size of the image on the page can be reduced. If there's support for this, I can make the appropriate changes to the templates involved. - Archduk3 06:01, March 20, 2015 (UTC)

As part of this I'm trying out some ideas to keep the size of the page down without loosing too much, mainly by moving some of the links around and "combining" panels where it seems possible. Feedback would be appreciated. - Archduk3 06:37, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
