"December 12: Feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Catholicism); Yule Lads begin arrival in Iceland"

This seems to imply that the Yule Lads are real, and that they are beginning to arrive in Iceland today. While I am not at all stating definitively that the Yule Lads are not real, this seems to be a strange way to depict on the front page what the article itself describes as a folkloric concept. Should this be changed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:35, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Do you have a better wording we could use? --Jayron32 13:37, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
It looks a bit odd to me, as well. The date is marking the start of the arrival process, which is subtly different from what's written, but is proving difficult to construct otherwise. How about "start of the Yule Lads' arrival in Iceland", or something similar? Bazza (talk) 17:08, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

General discussion[edit]


Dear wiki author, I can't finding my desired subject after search in wiki search bar. How can I fix it? SHAWON2391 (talk) 01:58, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

SHAWON2391 Hello. This page is for discussing the operation of the Main Page. For help with using Deep web, you may ask questions at the Teahouse. 331dot (talk) 02:06, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Workshopping a proposal for a new user group[edit]

Valereee and I have been working on a proposal to form a new usergroup whose members would be able to edit content on the main page or its fully protected subsidiaries. Since it directly affects this project, and is based in part on the shortage of administrators working here, we would like to invite feedback on the proposal at User talk:Vanamonde93/Main page editor‎. The proposal itself is at User:Vanamonde93/Main page editor‎. In particular, we would like to hear it if you are opposed to the whole thing on principle, because we would prefer to spend our time elsewhere if the proposal has no hope of being successful. Best, Vanamonde (Talk) 04:53, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Cascade protection symbol[edit]

Should you add a cascade protected symbol to the top right of the page? I am RedoStone (talk)

Not really needed - the "edit" control should already be removed. — xaosflux Talk 20:34, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
Would the cascade-protected top icon even show up with the code at the top of MediaWiki:Vector.css that hides the title of the Main Page, any links when you are redirected to the page, basically hide that general area at the top? Zzyzx11 (talk) 05:09, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

Today's featured article[edit]

Thrusting the word "SLUT" onto the main page, regardless of context, seems a bit callous and insensitive. (talk) 14:22, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Callous and insensitive to whom?-- P-K3 (talk) 14:25, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
Isn't it obvious? (talk) 16:54, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
No, because it is about a nickname for a transit line, nothing inappropriate. However, if you don't like what appears on the Main Page for any reason, you are welcome to participate in the processes that determine that. 331dot (talk) 17:00, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
Consider me participating it right now. The top of this page states it is for discussing the contents of the main page, which I am. The inclusion of this acronym in the featured article section of the main page does not add anything to the benefit of the reader, and at worst, is an ugly and derisive word. We don't need it there. (talk) 19:09, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
I agree with the IP. The only two sources to "SLUT" in the article are from 2007 referencing a local coffee house that sold 100 t-shirts with "SLUT" on them. Does that need to be in the lead of the article? (Hint: no, it doesn't). Even worse, "Slut" actually redirects to this article, rather than Slut (disambiguation). It's pretty pathetic, frankly. Black Kite (talk) 19:17, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
No it doesn't (redirect). Check Slut and SLUT. Bazza (talk) 19:38, 12 December 2019 (UTC)
