Media of the day

"Papilio machaon" in the Media of the day should be in italics as a scientific name. Beautiful video by the way.SchreiberBike (talk) 17:34, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

English in Picture of the Day caption

Regarding the caption on Rotes Rathaus: "severe damages" is poor English. It should be "severe damage". - Bri (talk) 01:12, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Poor English in POTD 9 May

The English caption to the POTD of 9 May is full of incorrect usage, evidently produced by a thesaurus or machine translation. Examples: several (some); preys (prey); owing (due); leaves (causes...to); before (previously); switch (adapt); genuine food (proper....diet); waste (detritus); cadavers (carcasses).

A corrected version of the entire caption with these minimal changes would read:

In summer, some polar bears do not make the transition from their winter residence on the Svalbard islands to the dense drift ice and pack ice of the high arctic where they would find a plethora of prey. This is due to global climate change which causes the ice around the islands to melt much earlier than previously. The bears need to adapt from their proper food to a diet of detritus, small animals, bird eggs and carcasses of marine animals. Very often they suffer starvation and are doomed to die.

Incidence maps

How are they made? I would like to make some for WP but not sure where to start. My target are all these colored maps that are so common around here, is it any app I can help with?--Neurorebel (talk) 22:46, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Caption in Media of the Day

"from the 2011 year." should be "from the year 2011." MartinPoulter (talk) 08:36, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

  Done (sort of) changed it to what I'd consider to be more idiomatic "The 2011 animated short film Little Tombstone". Thanks! Storkk (talk) 09:37, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
