You do not have permission to do that

When I click "View Source" on a protected page, I get the message "You do not have permission to do that, for the following reason" ... I don't find the word "that" particularly appropriate. Is it saying that I don't have permission to view source? That can't be it, since it is showing me the source. So, I think the message should be changed to "You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason" ... unless there are some other contexts in which the words "edit this page" would not make sense.

True, true...but how many people will think it's necessary? I don't think anything of it, but maybe you're right. SuperfieldCreditUnion
The wording will be improved in version 1.13 (although it's still kind of poorly implemented in my opinion). Wikipedia has taken it out altogether. — It's dot com 22:39, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe some bolding would help? And possibly changing the font to red? Homestar-Winner (talk) 19:03, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Link the international welcome pages on the Main Page (aka "So, are we doing this?")

Two months ago, I posted the following here:

It's been like 10 months since the creation of the international welcome pages, however, the visitor counts are pretty low. With most pages translated, maybe we should start promoting them on the main page. These boxes designed by Sysrq868 look just fine, I would prefer the yellowish single line version.
I just somehow thought I should restart this discussion.

Since nobody answered so far, I'll post it here again, hoping somebody will notice it. TCIC (Talk to me / Stuff I did) 19:50, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

I, also, wonder what happened to this project. Especially with the release of SBCG4AP in Europe, Homestar Runner is getting more international exposure (if that's possible for a internet based cartoon...). The welcome pages, while not perfect, are a fine idea, and most are ready to go right now. So what is the delay in redoing the front page to reflect this great community resource? wbwolf (t | ed) 23:40, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
I added another version with flags, it might still need some work, e.g. making the flags a part to the link to the welcome page instead linking to the image, I couldn't figure out how to do that. As for putting it on the main page, I kinda like this one. TCIC (Talk to me / Stuff I did)
PS: Ok, I figured out a way, but there has to be an easier way to do this.

Typo on main page

Hey, I noticed a typo in the way the current featured article, StrongBadZone, displays on the main page. Toward the bottom of the excerpt it reads, "The game stylistically resembles the Virtual Boy vector game Red Alarm, which at also features a...". When I go to the article page it reads correctly, "which at some point also...." I assume this has something to do with the way the Featured Article content is inserted into the Main Page—I guess it doesn't come straight from the article? —AbdiViklas 12:27, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

No, it doesn't come straight from the article... it's at HRWiki:Featured article for 2008, week 37. I've gone and added those two missing words to that summary, thanks. --phlip TC 12:40, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Bad "Watch" link on latest update

The "watch" link for the Strong Badia the Free video goes to the wrong place -- the link listed is but it should be TTGJake 16:55, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

To edit the Main Page, you can go to Template:whatsnew and hit "edit" there. An FYI so you don't have to spend more time bringing this up on a talk page than it would actually take to fix a link. OptimisticFool 19:34, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps the fix wasn't obvious or he would have done it himself (note that not even the person who added the update knew the correct format). — It's dot com 20:40, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I didn't know how to edit the main page, and even though I do now (thanks!), it feels a bit icky and conflict of interestey to edit the main page to update a link that points to my company's website. It feels more comfortable to just point out the glitch and let other people decide what to do. But thanks for the heads up. TTGJake 16:03, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Look what I found!

Yep, see Talk:H* updates 2008#sbemail 200 and Page Load Error. Thanks though! — It's dot com 23:20, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Ignored Inside Joke?

I think that having trouble with using fireworks (as seen in Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon, Happy Fireworks, Date Nite) seems to be a recurring joke. If nothing else, a running gag. —Supuhstar* Image:Supuhstar(SupuhSmall).gif 18:50, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
