MOTD (May 8, 2023)

The caption for today's MOTD sounds quite promotional, not to mention that the file itself is subject to an active deletion request. The file should be swapped out or at least the caption changed to be more neutral; the MOTD should not be a vehicle for advertising. Yeeno (talk) 00:15, 8 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Images Sounds Videos ... and?

On the home page is a sub-menu: "Images Sounds Videos". We need to add to this "Documents", "3D models" and "Data" (possibly splitting the latter into "tabular data" and "map data"; see Commons:Data). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 04:31, 15 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree with this change; apart from 1) it doesn't include 3D models and 2) we still need to change the three-word entry higher up the page. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 08:54, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Caption for Media of the Day

It appears that captions for Media of the Day have stopped being shown, or being entered. This has happened within the last week or so. Can anybody say if it is deliberate? Or is it a language selection thing? The captions are needed. Cheers. Rsteen (talk) 04:09, 25 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It looks like they stopped being entered – yesterday’s caption was entered at 16:32 UTC yesterday, so it was missing for 16.5 hours. For the remaining few days of September, all files and captions have been entered by now. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 12:18, 26 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your swift reply. Yes, there are captions now, and that is a good thing. Cheers Rsteen (talk) 04:49, 28 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, but this problem keeps turning up. If the media file is a movie, you might have an idea of what it could be, without the text, but if it is a sound file, you are completely stranded. Cheers Rsteen (talk) 03:57, 19 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Picture of the day block on the main page of Wikimedia Commons is broken

Picture of the day block on the main page of Wikimedia Commons is stuck at some older picture of the day. In order to see it in effect you have to log out. It’s a serious issue of large scale that needs to be fixed – the majority of several hundred thousands daily visitors to the main page of Wikimedia Commons are non-registered users.

Hi, I don't see any issue. Try to clear your cache, and reload the page. Yann (talk) 10:07, 18 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yann, yes, at the moment it is updated. But this was certainly not the case before I had left a message here. I tried it in two different browsers on two devices with refresh. Weird. Argenberg (talk) 10:18, 18 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Admin edit needed

Hello, I just created the template for the English description of today's MOTD, but I accidentally wrote Army instead of Navy. Can't change it now due to the protection, could an admin please make the edit? Cheers, BigDom (talk) 09:58, 2 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

✓ Done. --rimshottalk 11:12, 2 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
