Neptune Image

change

The image for Neptune is not the same for the article, as it is not the true color version revealed early into 2024. 4.17.84.154 (talk) 11:56, 20 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Proposal to change auto-archive on Main Talk page

change

I would like to suggest we auto-archive the main talk page with different setting. I know a lot of us monitor the page, so questions are usually answered or statements receive a response relatively fast. Some are odd baalth ngs, ke lian editor posting in another languag,e , where ask them to post inEen igl.

I would recommend we use the same time frame as we do on simple talk, which is 10 days and a minimum of 5 topics left on page. This page is currently set at 1 year.

I have gone ahead and made the following changes before the bot kicks off:

  1. Set the timeframe to 45 days (down from 365 days)
  2. Expanded the amount of space from 75k per archive to 150k so we have less archives
  3. Added a space before the archive number
  4. Made sure old archives are still accessible
  5. Ensured the archive box can be seen at the top where it should be so it can be searched

If it runs and works tonight, we should be good. If it does not archive, then it is a bot exception. Thanks and edit well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da ๐Ÿ‘! 03:04, 5 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Proposal to archive this page

change

This is no longer valid. See the next section titled Talk:Main Page#Request for Comments: Archiving this Page. This is a proposal to have Bot873 archive this talk page following its BRFA at Bot873. It is currently only authorized for User talk pages and the admin requested pages. It states that to archive any other namespace or page, it requires community consensus. That is what this is for, so vote away.

The current settings are as follows:

  • Archive any discussion that has not been edited in the last 45 days (using the last time stamp in the discussion)
  • Must leave the last three (3) discussions (regardless of how old) on the page.

This page was being archived by SassoBot then my bot was dropped in to archive all pages that would allow it (some pages are restricted to Sassobot or no bots). My bot got shut down and Operator created a bot to fill in the gap. So this is nothing new to have this page archived again.

Format for voting is * followed by bolding Approve or Not approved followed by your signature. No comments are typically necessary, but you can if itโ€™s short like why not or not needed imo. Any questions or other items should go in the discussion section and please remember your four ~ to sign.

Request for Comments: Archiving this Page

change
The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Result -This page should be archived; there's a bot conmfiguation at the top of this page; bots should honor it, and archive discussions accodingly. Setup or archival should be the same as the other pages that get archives, such as Simple talk, or admin noticeboard. Specific archival settings are different.--Eptalon (talk) 20:08, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

This is an RfC to archive this page. The BRFA for Bot873 excludes anything outside of user talk pages and admin related pages (decided on by the admins). Above, we had a discussion to change the settings for the archiving of this page, without realizing this page (and namespace) was purposefully excluded by the operator due to policy on requiring consensus for any public page that is outside the above named "namespaces."

The current settings for this page archiving is as follows:

  • Archive any discussion that has not been edited in the last 45 days (using the last time stamp in the discussion)
  • Must leave the last three (3) discussions (regardless of how old) on the page.

Please feel free to leave your comments or !votes in the appropriate sections below.

Neptune

change

On the front page as of now, the picture is different. I've seen this happen before, but I was ignored. In the article, they use a completely different picture rather than the one of the front page. LOLHWAT (talk) 11:42, 16 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

@LOLHWAT I believe it picks a random picture from the article. Thanks, and be well! - PDLTalk to me!Please don't eat da ๐Ÿ‘! 11:50, 17 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@PotsdamLamb and LOLHWAT: The article previews on the main page come from subpages of Wikipedia:Very good articles. For example, this one is at Wikipedia:Very good articles/Neptune. These do not update automatically so they have to be updated by a person, when the article is changed.
About the picture of Neptune: I liked the one on the front page better, but sadly, it's a false color image, so we should probably update it to use the true color image that's displayed on Neptune. Kk.urban (talk) 19:21, 17 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
English: Uploader's notes: The original NASA/Cowart PNG image has been modified by flattening (combining layers), cropping and converting to JPEG format.
Original caption released with image:
Voyager 2 Narrow Angle Camera image of Neptune taken on August 20, 1989 as the spacecraft approached the planet for a flyby on August 25. The Great Dark Spot, flanked by cirrus clouds, is at center. A smaller dark storm, Dark Spot Jr., is rotating into view at bottom left. Additionally, a patch of white cirrus clouds to its north, named "Scooter" for its rapid motion relative to other features, is visible.
This image was constructed using orange, green and synthetic violet (50/50 blend of green filter and UV filter images) taken between 626 and 643 UT.
