Incorrect spelling of numbers for the April 27th & April 15th entries[edit]

The word twelveth is an archaic form of twelfth. The phrase eleventh-millionth plus one should be phrased as eleven-millionth-plus one. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.8.34.50 (talk • contribs) at 30. 4. 2013, 04:23‎ (UTC).

Nostalgia wiki[edit]

Box other projects not insert nostalgia wikipedia. --Walter Klosse (talk) 14:29, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

It only accepts some other Wikimedia projects. The Nostalgia Wikipedia is not supported. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 17:06, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Where is the source code template?[edit]

Not gonna edit. Just want to see. MechQuester (talk) 04:53, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

@MechQuester: You mean the template for the main page? Wikidata:Main Page/Content. --Yair rand (talk) 05:11, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Middle East is not a continent[edit]

'Middle East' is not a continent (and I can't guess whether country X is in there). Why are we purporting this misconcept? Note that "middle east" is Western-biased already. -DePiep (talk) 03:19, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Where does this say that and why is this relevant to the main page? Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 09:59, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
Good point. Can't reproduce now. Will be back with a screenprint then. -DePiep (talk) 21:33, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Change default main page in lt language[edit]

Hello, Lithuanian language has separated main page for Wikidata: [1], is it possible and how to change this main page to this one (already translated): [2]?--Zygimantus (talk) 20:30, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Main page can be modified somehow, but only by a sysop, so I think it’s easier to just embed the second page in the first like a template. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:46, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Or maybe redirect can help in this case?--Zygimantus (talk) 09:39, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
It also works. The main difference is that when you embed the translated page, the translation header doesn’t appear. I think the main page is better without it, especially on mobile as it can take up the whole screen and the user has to scroll to see the actual content, but a reader doesn’t need it on desktop either. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:18, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
I created a redirect to Wikidata:Main Page which embeds Wikidata:Main Page/Content/lt. This is also how it is done for other languages. --Pasleim (talk) 21:15, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you!--Zygimantus (talk) 07:55, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
