Sorry, I thought I'd pasted the references from the parent article but I obviously forgot. Fixed. Gracious of you to message me before removing! —swpbT • go beyond • bad idea 13:42, 24 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK for Recreational drug use in animals[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg

On 15 April 2023, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Recreational drug use in animals, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that black lemurs use toxic millipede secretions as insect repellent, and apparently enjoy their narcotic effect? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Recreational drug use in animals. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Recreational drug use in animals), and the hook may be added to the statistics page after its run on the Main Page has completed. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Orphaned non-free image File:Logo of the Geological Society of Glasgow.png[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Logo of the Geological Society of Glasgow.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:25, 22 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comma after year[edit]

MOS:DATE says "A comma follows the year unless other punctuation obviates it: The weather on March 12, 2005, was clear and warm." Please do not remove such commas. Chris the speller yack 13:38, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The instruction "A comma doesn't follow the year unless otherwise required by context" applies to DMY-format dates, as in "2 September 2001". The instruction ""A comma follows the year unless other punctuation obviates it" applies to MDY-format dates, which is where I added the commas. Please put the commas back.
