Picture of the day (20 January 2023)

"A owner of a old book selling store in Kolkata" - How did this get past the proofreaders? PeeJay (talk) 00:25, 20 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Media of the Day error (18 Feb. 2023)

"friendship between the U.S. and China" should link to en:History of China–United States relations, rather than en:China–United States relations, as the specified time (and friendship) was before the establishment of the PRC, which the article currently linked to refers to.

Photo challenge

Hello guys. I wanted to promote the WLA challenge on the main page. But the WLF challenge is still under way and I can not find how to have both of them featured at the same time. Is there a way ? Otherwise, I’ll replace WLF by WLA Anthere (talk) 12:04, 2 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Anthere, why did you link the 2022 edition which is already closed? Please fix it to Commons:Wiki Loves Africa 2023. ─ The Aafī (talk) 12:52, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see this has been fixed. ─ The Aafī (talk) 12:53, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yup. I saw I forgot to fix that after I edited the French page. Sorry about that. Anthere (talk) 14:27, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
By the way, thanks A LOT for the help on WLA and Africa Environment translation framework Anthere (talk) 14:28, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Anthere: I'm glad to know that I have been of some help here. I enjoy working with translation preparation and would be happy to assist wherever asked. ─ The Aafī (talk) 14:33, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
