Wording at bottom of sign[edit source]

All the adoption signs say "Adopt a page today" at the bottom. However 3 of the 4 signs are for pages that have already been adopted. Could those be changed to "Contribute to a page today"? MarkhamMJ 00:56, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Marilyn, the wording can be changed. The current wording is based on the original designs by Ben Bennett see {{Adopt-a-page}}. If there is general support for the change then it can be done, but we must first understand why the current wording was used. I was under the impression that the wording was chosen to attract new adopters. Is this still a needed? There are other routes to encourage general editing/contributions, including wording inside the sign itself, but the link at the bottom of the sign is currently used for encouraging adopting. --Steve (talk| contribs) 06:39, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
