Wikipedia Sister projectEdit

I just noticed that an anon actually went ahead and muddied up the Wikipedia slogan. Cute, but I actually thought we had agreed not to do this? If no one objects let's change it back. Dovi 03:53, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Changed back to "The free encyclopedia". // [admin] Pathoschild (talk/map) 04:06, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Interwiki link to vi:Edit

Please add an interwiki link to the Vietnamese version of this template:

Wikiversity logo out of dateEdit

The logo needs to be updated to match the new verison. Richard001 22:54, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Update syntaxEdit


Please change the syntax of this template. Using a template for image links is deprecated, because there's now a new link= parameter for images. The new code would look like this:

<div style="text-align: center;">

Edit request on March 20, 2013Edit

{{Editprotected}} "Free" should be added to the text that appears when you hover over the Wiktionary and Wikispecies logos, as they are also free-content. Thanks. King jakob c 2 (talk) 01:03, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

{{edit protected}} The Wikiversity logo was updated in 2017 to File:Wikiversity logo 2017 en.svg, but this template still uses the old logo. Please replace {{File:Wikiversity-logo-en.svg| with {{File:Wikiversity logo 2017 en.svg|. Thanks. GreenComputer (talk) 15:18, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

@GreenComputer: Done. And thanks for the heads up. --Xover (talk) 15:37, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

different template formatEdit

i think we should use this this version since it lines up more with the template on other projects unsigned comment by Serprinss (talk) 09:54, 10 August 2021‎ (UTC).

@Serprinss: The current layout is designed to fit well on our Main Page so it's unlikely to be changed until we redesign that, which probably will not be any time soon. --Xover (talk) 11:54, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
@Xover: The suggested template is certainly more modern and probably more accessible (due to the more readable and, well, text-y, text). We could do worse than at least adapting some of that to fit our main page. Especially on mobile, where there's no hover, so the title attributes can't convey a "WTH is this one" hint.
But will need a (small) amount of finagling to get a decent responsive result: {{Sisterprojects No Text}} might be narrower, but it's still too wide for a mobile screen and doesn't reflow. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 13:00, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
@Inductiveload: The current template does reflow (it's a flexbox); and it's hidden on mobile in any case (deliberately). And the current version is more accessible in that it doesn't use a layout table and includes actual alt text. Whether we want a different layout for aesthetic reasons, or text labels for non-a11y reasons, is a different discussion. To me the biggest issue with it is that the project logos are so disparate that they just plain look messy. The No-text variant hides that problem by making the logos uniformly small enough that they're just indistinct colour blobs. At which point, do we even need the logos?
I've been toying with various non-square/non-grid-y layouts for the logos where their disparity won't be so obvious. But just using text labels and a small tag line would also be a reasonable approach. Minimalism being all the rage an’ all. Xover (talk) 14:49, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
