Why does the favicon display with a hazy white border? Can this be fixed? (I think I found the file but I can't find that in search.) Cheers, Edward-Woodrow (talk) 00:25, 3 October 2023 (UTC)

Yup, there are two related issues with the favicon - outlines tracked at phab:T326094 and similarity tracked at phab:T343597. Both require some related areas of expertise, hence they haven't been quickly fixed already. -- Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 00:48, 3 October 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for the info, Quiddity (WMF). I looked at the .ico file, and it looks like the reason there's a white border is that there's a white border. (I mean, it isn't a weird display problem. We just need to remove a few pixels.) Once someone figures out how to edit the file, we just have to remove the outline; it will display the same on white because the background is transparent, and will hopefully look good on black.

I've created a high-contrast version of the favicon, without any blurring or white outlines (the blue became slightly modified for contrast reasons), if that's any help. Commons won't allow me to upload .ico files, though. Edward-Woodrow (talk) 20:04, 3 October 2023 (UTC)
Thanks! Perhaps you could add it to a comment in that Phabricator task? (drag-and-drop within the comment box there should work, or there's a toolbar button to upload). I believe that .ico files are ok there. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:17, 3 October 2023 (UTC)
Unfortunately, connecting e-mail to my Wikimedia account is required to log in to Phabricator, something I am not willing to do. Edward-Woodrow (talk) 21:20, 3 October 2023 (UTC)
Fortunately, the changes I made are easily replicate. Just download the .ico file, and remove the white pixels (and make a few cosmetic changes) in GIMP or a related application of your choice, and all should be well. Edward-Woodrow (talk) 21:54, 3 October 2023 (UTC)
Quiddity (WMF): or, really, convert File:Wikifunctions-favicon-32.png to .ico. Edward-Woodrow (talk) 19:48, 7 October 2023 (UTC)

Move "WFI7M" video to own box

Should the "Wikifunctions in 7 minutes" be moved to its own box on the main page to stop the unevenness that is there currently. See Template:Main page/sandbox for an example of how this could look. Terasail[✉️] 22:07, 12 October 2023 (UTC)

Maybe put the video above the bullet list, and turn that into an hlist, with the whole box's contents horizontally-centred? Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 12:58, 13 October 2023 (UTC)
@Jdforrester (WMF) I have updated the sandbox, was that more in line with what you were suggesting? Terasail[✉️] 16:06, 16 October 2023 (UTC)
@Terasail: Thanks, that looks better to me; what do you or others think? Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 17:57, 16 October 2023 (UTC)
I think it is an improvement, I just wanted to make a change since the current main page creates a lot of whitespace in the Welcome! box and the right side of the Get started box. Your suggestion is probably better than creating a whole new box and definitely looks cleaner, I will let this sit for a few days incase anyone has any other input and then will probably add to the mainpage.
