Something related to the main page for once - randomly featured article[edit]

There should be a purge link somewhere so that you can switch which article is featured, it’s not very random at the moment. Christopher (talk) 20:03, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Done! Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 21:18, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
I’ve made it look a little cleaner, but two superscript links still doesn’t look great. Maybe Random featured article[Get a different article]?
Plus you’ve got a repeat of the word “article”, doesn’t look good. Christopher (talk) 21:23, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
With my version it’s unclear where the link to help:cover stories actually goes, could be another link to the featured article itself. Christopher (talk) 21:25, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
How about just "change it"? Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 21:54, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
Sounds like it’s trying too hard to be informal imo. What about Random featured article[New article]? It still has the double article but it’s not as much of a problem if the link is less of its own sentence.
I’m definitely overthinking this. Christopher (talk) 22:21, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Nevermind, this would be terrible for BoNs. You get taken to a different page that asks you to confirm you want to purge the cache. Christopher (talk) 17:56, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

I should had probably written it here, but...[edit]

There is actually a purge button on the main page. I made it to be a secret easter egg of sorts in this edit. Clicking the exclamation mark purges the page.𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 14:51, 23 April 2021 (UTC)

Delete the site[edit]

Sysops should not be able to change the main page.[edit]

Sysops are not able to change the mission part of the main page, so why are they allowed to edit the most visited page on the entire site?𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 06:59, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

  1. You never know when some troll comes by and vandalizes it. It's basically our job to make sure it stays clean as it is, and clean up any messes. Though I'm sure you already know that. Jake Holmesyell at me 13:23, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Alfred’s theory of subtraction proves that the noughts can beat the crosses[edit]

As the editors here show, they always choose the crosses, so they are more advantaged, but the noughts have a trick up their sleeve if they pull up and use this theory in action. What a discovery! Noughts and crosses rules! (talk) 17:00, 1 November 2021 (UTC)
