I have a related question. Can you just start articles about pseudoscientists? YourSlimyUnicorn (talk) 22:29, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

No one cares about your 20-year-old statistics, Ken.[edit]

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)

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)
