IMHO the Coordinate is way better placed below
the title line in the
upper right corner.
The featured article icon and the approved version icon could be placed
next to each other (the approved icon in the right and the featured
article icon would be placed a bit left from it) directly above the title
line (and not in the site notice).
That sounds reasonable.
By the way en.wikipedia is already doing so and places the coordinates below
the title line, see for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin
However de.wikipedia does not have a the "From Wikipedia, the free
encyclopedia" tag line (luckily IMHO as I don't like redundant branding
everyhwere) and placing the coordinates below the title line would interfere
with the first line of text but I am sure that people in de.wikipedia will be
able to solve this nicely.
In some articles, for example

link, but this seems to be a particular feature of the german

So probably every Wikipedia has some individual not quality related icons
This leaves us with two icons there. Not really what I
dreamed of, but it
Hm another solution would be a merge of quality related icons. If the approved
icon has a label in the HTML source code (and is located within a labeled
container) people could influence it easily via template + CSS and could
replace it in these cases indvidually with a combined "featured + approved"
icon. As well the info box with pops up on clicking at the approved icon
could also be extented by them individually with a line indicating "featured
So we could
take this as an opportunity to get rid of these problems with
a very good point. ;-)
Yes, but we have to be careful not to step on everyones feet.
Of course the solutions for these icon hacks in Wikipedia should be decided by
the Wikipedias themselves but we now have some suggestions and of course we
can take care in advance that we have proper labeled elements which can be
modified more easily within the wiki via templates + CSS.
So I think we can provide the Wikipedias enough flexibility that they can
solve it smoothly.
