Edits on Main page[edit source]

Please, don't edit more in the a lot on the main page, only if is a important thing. -- Comedia Paperback book black gal.svg 20:21, 24 December 2013 (CET)

Why would we be editing it when it's unnecessary? Nuvola apps gimp2.png Beem-TalkNuvola apps gimp2.png - Hoi! 21:42, 24 December 2013 (CET)

Sexist language[edit source]

Under "What is Vikidia?", the second sentence begins: "Everybody, whatever his age..." This is a Wiki for children of any gender: please can someone with permission to edit the page change this to "Everybody, whatever their age..." 12:37, 30 June 2014 (CEST)

I changed it to "Anybody, whatever age,...", like the current draft. Wynter (talk) 18:57, 30 June 2014 (CEST)
Hello. "Anybody, whatever age,..." does not sound correct in English (or is it?). I thought the correct form should be “Anybody, whatever their age...”. Thanks, — Wemal (talk) 23:18, 7 October 2014 (CEST).
What about something like "Anybody, of any age,..."? I would avoid using "their" because of the singular they controversy. Wynter (talk) 08:17, 8 October 2014 (CEST)

Other languages[edit source]

I have an idea: could we add another box at the bottom called other languages? Although we already have interwikis on the side, this would make users more aware of the Vikidias in other languages.

Since nobody objected, I'll go ahead and add it. Wynter (talk) 06:24, 24 June 2015 (CEST)

CAPTCHA[edit source]

Hi, I have a question! When I edit a page and I will be save it ask the page that I answer CAPTCHA! This is strange! WikiKids not ask it a captcha why Vikidia wel?--Maxie1hoi (talk) 19:09, 23 February 2015 (CET) 19:07, 23 February 2015 (CET)

infobox?[edit source]

Hi, i can't found infobox artist! And how i can uploud an image with link?--Maxie1hoi (talk) 20:02, 3 March 2015 (CET)

Do you have looked at Template:Infobox Person. It little differend than by WikiKids. But the idea is the same. Mike1023 (talk) 20:12, 3 March 2015 (CET)
Mike 1. die sjabloon werkt niet 2. Ik word door verwezen naar een andere pagina 3. Als ik dat sjabloon plak dan werktie niet!--Maxie1hoi (talk) 10:46, 7 March 2015 (CET)
At the article of Isaac Newton is works very good. Vikidia has other Infoboxen. At wikikids it works the most of the infobpx with the infobox generiek. They haven't have this here. But works very good and is easier to use. P.S. please talk English at a English wiki. Not everyone speak Dutch. Mike1023 (talk) 18:10, 7 March 2015 (CET)

Update: german Interwiki-Link[edit source]

Image of the week[edit source]

I'm a French teacher near Bordeaux ; teen agers in my Vikidia club would like to select images for Image of the week. I tried for the 48th week, in order to show them how to do it next monday. Thanks for your help. Als33120 (talk) 04:21, 3 December 2016 (CET)his

Sorry, it's on now. Als33120 (talk) 11:13, 3 December 2016 (CET)
Yes, I have seen they aren't exist. However, I like to the attention for the English Vikidia in France. Maybe, you and your Vikidia club can do a little project about a specific subject, like Bordeaux or a scientific subject. I would like it if the Vikidia club can select (a few) images of the week. I'm very curious, so, please, keep me up to date. Have a nice evening! Mike1023 (talk) 19:16, 3 December 2016 (CET)on
Great idea, I sent your suggestion to a list of French babytwitters and hope I'll get several photos and comments in English. Hope you don't mind my quoting your message. Als33120 (talk) 22:55, 3 December 2016 (CET)
Of course not. I'm really glad you have sent it. Do you want keep an eye on the photos and comments? Thank you for sending the message. Mike1023 (talk) 11:34, 4 December 2016 (CET)
@Mike1023 Hi, On holidays or not yet ? I wrote a short page about Bordeaux and another one about Dijon. I plan to go on with this trip through French cities, illustrated with Images of the week. --Als33120 (talk) 20:31, 19 December 2016 (CET)
I have to go to school for one day more, but I need a holiday now. Beautiful articles and the picture are amazing. I'm very curious to see your future pictures and if you like to write some articles about French cities, I would like to write a few too. I think I start this month with a twitter account, so maybe I help joining some other people Vikidia. Good luck. Mike1023 (talk) 18:14, 21 December 2016 (CET)

Maxie1hoi[edit source]

Hi, i am user Maxie1hoi. i have created a new account because i forgot my password but sadly new password reset request does not work. I have tried several times. That's why i have a new user account. Hope this is clearly and not a problem. --Maksij (talk) 19:19, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Hi Maxie1hoi. The password reset should work, for sure; do you have an email address registered with the site? If you have, that's where your password should go. Please let us know if you're having any difficulties or you need assistance and I'll see if I can find one of our bureaucrats or system operators to help you! DaneGeld (talk) 22:59, 17 August 2021 (UTC)
Just as a side note, I've been into our special pages, and requested a temporary password be sent out to you. Hopefully you will receive it and be able to get your account back :) DaneGeld (talk) 23:12, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Yes of course! Everyone need a email adres for register on vikidia.. as I said I don't have a password reset mail link. Checked a minute ago.. nothing. I tried to get password link with my email. But no password reset mail link. Also mailed vikidia but don't have answer on my email message. That's why I created a new account.--Maksij (talk) 09:00, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

Star article displays outdated version[edit source]

On the Main Page, the present star article, Airbus, displays an outdated version (8 January 2022 or earlier, per page history). It doesn't show changes from three edits of 16 January. Is this a server limitation, or can it be pushed? Deborahjay (talk) 14:15, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

Apologies for the delay. I believe the Star Article thing is a server limitation. When it's picked to become star article, and added in, I believe (although don't quote me on this, I may be wrong) that the version which was in place at the date it was added as a star article, is what is displayed. The only way I could test this would be to remove it as a star article from the front page, and then re-add it, to see if the new entry takes account of the updates. I'll check this later as I'm about to go out, but I will look into this Notification Deborahjay: and get back to you as soon as I figure it out (if indeed, I can!) DaneGeld (talk) 12:43, 1 February 2022 (UTC)
Additionally, I think I may be right in this matter. I am sure I have seen this somewhere else, that there's something in place to prevent the main page articles being vandalised, and that vandalism appearing on the main page. I'll check with Mediawiki as I think it's inbuilt, and get back to you :) DaneGeld (talk) 12:47, 1 February 2022 (UTC)
It would be good to update it so the main page doesn't include typos such as 'aeorospace'. 06:44, 30 May 2022 (UTC)
Sorted! - I couldn't remember how to do this, and I've managed to get round to looking it up, and fixed it. If there's anymore problems, please let me know! DaneGeld (Talk to me!) Dove peace.svg 07:38, 30 May 2022 (UTC)
