No I'm pointing out that something that was advertised through
[[MediaWiki:Watchdetails]] ended up with more than 3 times as many
candidates and something that was advertised through banner ads on
every single project. This provides further evidence that
[[MediaWiki:Watchdetails]] is a perfectaly adiquate method for
advertising things.

Incerdentaly for those following this it is now 69 days since there
was 24 hours without something in [[mediawiki:Sitenotice]].
