MOTD caption, June 24

The file description incorrectly states the video as being shot "in Vancouver" when the video itself says it was shot in Suquamish. It would be more accurate to say "near Vancouver". SounderBruce 21:05, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Media of the day today is wrong

The Media of the Day today, which purportedly shows how to tie a w:bowline knot, is incorrect. If you tie the knot as shown in the video it will simply fall apart. The initial loop has to go the other way for a bowline to hold.--agr (talk) 04:05, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support demoting today's media of the day and finding a replacement, but in the short time (2min) before I have to go to work, I cannot figure out how to do that without risking stepping on someone's toes. agr is correct as far as I can tell, and it's a embarrassing to have this as MOTD.

    •   Done. Storkk (talk) 11:54, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. For the record the video in question is File:Paso a paso de un nudo As de guía.ogv. I hope they can fix it.--agr (talk) 12:18, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Video Making of Manda Pitha is not appropriate to be uploaded on World Wide Web

I really appreciate the effort, taken by the uploader of this video, to enrich Wikipedia with such media files that showcase the tradition and culture of Odisha (a state of India). However, in my personal view, some contents of this video is not appropriate to be viewed by the people all over the world. The lady making Manda Pitha in this video is not properly dressed, which I think can create a false image of the culture of Odisha in the mind of its viewers since Odia tradition always emphasizes the proper dressing of women. Hence, it is my personal suggestion to delete this video, that can be recovered later by uploading another video which will be appropriate by all means.

@Rajmishra757: If you think the file should be deleted, please fill deletion request. --jdx Re: 08:47, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
@Rajmishra757: No, please do not start deletion requests unless you find a deletable policy violation. The fact that you object to something in the video is thankfully not among those policies, and I would speedy close any deletion request that you start on that basis as vandalism.
