Description Rotem Liss 2006-03-27 16:10:18 UTC
"currentevents" is specific to Wikipedia (but even the Hebrew Wikipedia doesn't
use it, and it's especially odd in Wikinews) and "sitesupport" is specific to
Wikimedia. Both of them are not generic like "portal" or "mainpage". I suggest
to remove their messages from Messages.php, and from the messages "sidebar" and
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-03-27 18:30:09 UTC
"Sitesupport" is not specific to Wikimedia, there are a lot of wikis out there
that would need donations &c. in order to keep them running. "Current events"
could be altered to be specific for events on that site.

This stuff is simple to remove from the sidebar and it does no harm; I see no
reason to remove it.
