Rotating sitenotice code[edit]

I had hoped that the code required to have a rotating sitenotice would be left here - if you want a single message, make all rotating options the same but leave a framework to put it back to a rotating notice. I hate having to dig through the page history to get the right syntax. --Brian McNeil / talk 03:01, 3 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could we have a full stop, please? — μ 21:35, June 16 2010 (UTC)

Done plus a few other cosmetic changes. Thanks. Tempodivalse [talk] 21:37, 16 June 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

EP[edit]

{{editprotected}} The grammar is wrong. Either make elections singular (how many elections are there?) or is to are. Thanks, fetch·comms 18:31, 11 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done   Tris   18:49, 11 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Weather[edit]

{{editprotected}} The weather thingy hasn't been updated for over a month; can we remove it from the rotation until the bot is back up? fetch·comms 02:16, 7 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done by Skenmy. --Pi zero (talk) 18:22, 7 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Till 2000[edit]

{{Editprotected}}

According to the current message, ArbCom nominations are accepted till 2000. Please replace this with:

2012 ArbCom nominations are [[Wikinews:Arbitration Committee/2012 election|now being accepted]] till 2012 UTC July 17.

dismiss[edit]

Hello, good news! Thanks to FreedomFighterSparrow and Brion, unregistered users can now hide the sitenotice again. Previously, they were forced to see it continuously.

In all cases, please use the sitenotice with care, and keep in mind that occasional visitors see sitenotices on all their visits, if they visit less than once a month or they don't click "dismiss" and save a cookie. Nemo 15:43, 24 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Spelling error[edit]

{{editprotected}} Replace "dysfunctionnal" with "dysfunctional". JsfasdF252 (talk) 01:52, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done; thx. --Pi zero (talk) 02:33, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

{{editprotected}} Could a sysop add this to the Sitenotice, if they feel it is appropriate, please? Heavy Water (talk) 03:26, 26 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Done by RockerballAustralia ... --SVTCobra 14:20, 26 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
{{editprotected}} And please remove it now. Thanks. Heavy Water (talk) 21:35, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done Wow, time flies! I didn't realize it was already over. I'll have to remove some of my entries. --SVTCobra 21:41, 4 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edit[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Please decapitalize the "Write" in "Learn how to Write an article!" It's apparently been like that for over a decade. Heavy Water (talk) 15:48, 19 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hmm, yes, I see. I think it is quite deliberate, however, as it is a page destination. Maybe some punctuation can help or a capital letter for "article"? Any thoughts? Maybe downstyling is the way to go. For now I am unsure. SVTCobra 23:08, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A colon would work. Heavy Water (talk) 23:10, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't think I ever looked at this list. Site-notices kind of pass me by as I feel "plugged in". Looking at it, however, seems to reveal a few more problems. SVTCobra 23:34, 21 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. Makes sense. [24Cr][talk] 22:40, 28 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
