If your query is not really directly related to the Main Page, consider the following locations:

Facebook posts[edit]

The automation seems to be broken again. Well, whatever it may be, I think the active users should have the credentials to the online accounts (which is tricky because some of us do not use Facebook). (Luckily, since the automation is broken, the renaming mess was not posted)

Minor main page issue[edit]

The part of main page showing current time is missing a colon. Quoting directly from it: Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 1701 Should be 17:01. --Moonythedwarf (talk) 17:04, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

@Moonythedwarf: We omit the colon when writing UTC (cf Wikinews:Style guide#Time). --Pi zero (talk) 17:18, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Edit by WMF staff pending a review[edit]

One edit by WMF staff was made two days ago and is awaiting review. --George Ho (talk) 01:16, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

@George Ho: None of us could figure out what that edit was supposed to do, so we asked the WMF account who made the edit for an explanation. So far they haven't bothered to explain, nor even to respond. --Pi zero (talk) 01:24, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@Pi zero:, no they did. Please see User talk:Jon (WMF). They provided the now and future version of the mobile site main page. I see there is an objection. And I believe that really would be an ugly change. They haven't responded how we can continue maintaining the current look. (talk) 05:59, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
So they did; my mistake. --Pi zero (talk) 11:53, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
