General discussion

why isnt sprint merger on news

the sprint t mobile merger was complete why is it not on the news page of wikipedia when it is a major company — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.241.203.50 (talk) 11:30, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Nominations for in the news candidates can be made at WP:ITNC. Spokoyni (talk) 16:36, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
What has just happened is that the FCC has voted to approve the merger, but there is still outstanding legal action by various states, so it is not complete anyway.-- Pawnkingthree (talk) 18:02, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Yesterday

Yesterday's Today's featured article and list are stil on the Main Page. --Ghinga7 (talk) 17:15, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Our records say this was yesterday's Main Page, so I can't confirm that. Remember Wikipedia uses UTC (London time zone), so our yesterday might not match yours. Art LaPella (talk) 17:59, 21 October 2019 (UTC)Art LaPella (talk) 17:54, 21 October 2019 (UTC)
London is currently one hour ahead of UTC. Modest Genius talk 12:17, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
  • According to Wikipedia:Today's featured article/October 2019, the featured article for yesterday was Ursula K. Leguin. The featured article for today is supposed to be Megabat. The current article is Megabat. I believe the OP is mistooken. --Jayron32 17:22, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
    • Possibly. Or there was some kind of caching issue, which wouldn't be unheard of. And I think you meant "mistaked". --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:26, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
    • Don't use my yesterday's Main Page link any more. It links to /Yesterday, which now means today's yesterday (Le Guin), not yesterday's yesterday (the hurricane). Art LaPella (talk) 20:20, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Possible hostile welcome?

The giant red banner at the top of this talk page has two purposes as I see it: the first and main purpose it has is to warn users not to use this talk page for materials unrelated to the main page. The second one is similar, being to help potentially new users figure out their way around Wikipedia properly. This is evidenced in the words "Welcome!" and the later help below the red box. The current state of it, with the red box and bold red warnings, serves the first purpose well. However, it is potentially unfriendly towards new users. Rather than changing the color, which may cause people to overlook it and skip to the next thing, I think something like the word "Welcome!" being linked to Wikipedia:Introduction or something similar that guides new users to a friendly place to learn about wikipedia. I would like input before doing it, however, to see any opposing opinions or other solutions that could be made. Integral Python click here to argue with me 21:28, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
