Heh. That didn't take long.

Seeing as both DYK templates are protected now, perhaps we should set up a Contributions page/section and have the edit-link point to that? --Algorithm (talk) 10:36, 18 Dec 2005 (UTC)

I miss the editable DYK. It had great stuff. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 12:40, 22 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Whats the point of having it protected? i thought the whole point was that you could edit it? --LaughingManic 15:11, 23 Dec 2005 (UTC)

That's what I want to know. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 01:54, 27 Dec 2005 (UTC)

I call out to all those autobots out there with no soul who locked the DYK...Why did you do it? can you give any explaination at all? are you going to lock EVERYTHING NOW??? --Mulehunter 20:13, 29 Dec 2005 (UTC)

You know what a big problem is? The choose tags. Not only does it make it hard to tell when to purge the news, it means the main page will be lopsided often since some DYKs are longer than others. *coughSpartacuscough* And it's causing a huge problem with a page I'm trying to make that picks a random reskin for the main page. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 23:57, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

There's one in there (towards the bottom) that says "Life is a sexually transmitted disease". Can you add, "with a 100% fatality rate"?

Sure, added. —rc (t) 05:10, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

edit Purge™ it!

Soon, some of the unfunny ones or the ones that don't work (such as the "You have new messages" one) should be removed soon, I think.

Yep, there was actually a chuck norris fact DYK in there, but I called RCmurphy to get rid of it. Not many DYKs are being added. The one I put in that got added, the snakes on a plane reference, was way back I think. I just put in ine with reference to Blazing Saddles, but I doubt that would get in.--Witt, Union leader of Union member UNion Entertain me* 06:25, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

edit Can someone fix indents?

  • A handful of DYKs
    • Such as Spartacus
      • Were indented in their original form
    • (also that one undented like this too)
  • Can someone put the proper indenting in?

--User:Nintendorulez 22:32, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

  • ...that Oscar Wilde beat cancer(and by cancer we mean small children)?
    • ...that a space should be used before many types of punctuation (such as parentheses)?

--User:Nintendorulez 23:08, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

  • ...that it's probably not weekend (The chance is 5/7)?
    • ...that this bad grammar?

  • ...that dodongo dislikes smoke, yet has no qualms with crack cocaine?
    • ...that proper nouns should be capitalized?

  • ...that I.C. York-Hunt looks just like Mike Hunt?
  • ...I.C. York-Hunt and raise you one Hugh G. Rection?
    • ...that there's no double indent on the second line?
      • ...that the pun is grammatically unsound in the first line?
        • ...that the name is already in the second line and can be removed from the first line?
          • ...that the second line needs the word 'that'?

...that Gerry Adams IS the Lord of the Dance?
    • that this needs a bullet point?

  • ...that June is National Boycott Websites that Insult Their Contributors Month? See ya in July, asswipe!
    • ...that this this would be so much funnier with that magic word for current month, and then an {{if}} used to display the month after?

  • ...that taking song lyrics and putting them in the form of a DYK is not funny?

  • ...that this template should be toned down to semiprotection since admins never edit it?
    • ...that any admins complaining about having to fix all the issues I'm trying to point out is only proving my point?

--User:Nintendorulez 23:20, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

  • ...that due to its evil, Planet Rupert is invisible to anyone who is pure of heart.
    • ...that if you aren't planning on taking out the redlink, you could at least change the period to a question mark? (This one has been driving me crazy for as long as I can remember. As Nin has demonstrated, it probably won't help to bring it up here, but it makes me feel a little better.)

edit Zork Implementor L's changes

Um... shouldn't it read <choose><option>{{DYK}}</option><option></option></choose> instead of using a DidYouKnow template? That one only gives DYKs related to featured articles. User:Wehpudicabok/sig 00:11, 12 March 2007 (UTC)

Ahahaha. Templates can't include themselves. --L 05:00, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah, okay. User:Wehpudicabok/sig 03:33, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

-- 13:23, August 12, 2010 (UTC)that internet memes are nutricious and less delicious if you eat them with no mustard sause???
