Change text of "Photo Challenge" box

Current English text is: "Take some photos and upload them to meet our monthly thematic challenge, get inspiration and try new subjects! Learn more about the challenges!". I think we should shorten it to "Participate in our monthly thematic photography challenge. Get inspiration and try new subjects. Learn more about the challenge". --Jarekt (talk) 14:33, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Translate "images from ..."

On Main Page, the following text, Images from September 24 is in the 'content' box. On the Spanish translation of the main page, Portada, how do we add Imágenes del 24 de septiembre, into the Contenido box? How do we do this for the other language home pages? Evrik (talk) 17:49, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Also, what about German, French, etc.?
All the pages can be found at {{lang-mp}} Evrik (talk) 15:48, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
It’s added directly on the page. You can search for “images from” in Main Page’s source, and ask an admin to add [[{{#timel:F j|now|en}}|Imágenes del {{#timel:j "de" F|now|es}}]] to the same place on Portada. ({{#timel:j "de" F|now|es}} produces “20 de febrero”; it may not be adequate if either preposition or the month name needs to be changed based on the current date. If it’s the case—and you can’t find a better format string yourself—, please describe the rules and I will try to help.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 11:10, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: your help would be appreciated. Evrik (talk) 17:56, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Category:Sound vs. Category:Audio files

The link to Category:Sound at the top should be replaced by a link to Category:Audio files, right? --Reinhard Müller (talk) 06:32, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Cross posted from an alternate language main talk page. Per my request to get more input on a proposed change to the main page. --Majora (talk) 23:11, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done Enough time has passed for anyone to make their objections known. Category changed in both places, top and under content. If you believe the label (Sounds) should also be changed that is a different issue entirely. --Majora (talk) 03:10, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

in an transcription

It says " in an transcription" on the media of the day. Victuallers (talk) 23:55, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Caption error (30th Jan 2019)

{{edit request}} "Media of the day". I imagine "in July 1017" should read "in July 2017". Hassocks5489 (talk) 10:25, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Also the sentence would read better if the date was at the end: "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge leaving the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin in July 2017."

New Design of Main Page

Where do I find a rationale for the redesign ? IMHO, this is very ugly. -- Juergen (talk) 23:44, 8 February 2019 (UTC)

@Juergeen: You brought it up, it is up to you to find a rationale. What is so ugly about it? What would make it prettier?   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 23:19, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
