"Article" should be "Main Page"[edit]

The top tabs on the Main page are "Article", "Collaboration", "Read", "Edit", "Add comment" and "View history". I think it doesn't make a lot of sense that the Main page is named "Article". We should rather name it "Main Page", just like on Wikipedia, Wiktionary, etc.--TheLazyDog (talk) 02:24, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Mm. Kind of a tall order. I gather we're not supposed to use page-specific css, MediaWiki:Common.css/Main Page. I suppose it could be done with an opt-out gadget, hooked into MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition.
One wonders how Commons [...] achieves the effect. --Pi zero (talk) 02:32, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm not seeing "Add comment" (and would hope not to :P) BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 02:50, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

If the Copenhagen suspect was dead...[edit]

...then why did police shoot him?

Joking. Sort of. Weird headline. Memento Morty (talk) 13:02, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@Memento Morty: Yeah, I reviewed that one, and wondered if I'd be justified in changing the headline, but a reviewer tries not to make big changes, and the small change I considered — "Police kill suspect in Copenhagen attacks" — sort-of made me think of police killing someone while in custody, which isn't what's meant either. Headlines can be remarkably tricky, partly because one doesn't have a lot of time to think about it. --Pi zero (talk) 14:19, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
