MM17 error and bolding dates for releases

I would like to edit this template. First, because it has an error (release date of Modern Masters 2017) that should get fixed, and second, because I would like to put in bold the dates of the release dates of sets. -Tuamir (talk) 02:49, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

I used the info from the Modern Masters 2017 page: "It is a booster-based compilation set containing cards legal in, and intended for, the Modern format. It will be released on March 23, 2017.[2]" I can see that this information was wrong, however. As to bolding set releases, I've got no strong opinion on that, other than perhaps only bolding expansions (i.e. not Commander, Planechase, and other supplementary/compilatory products). --Sene (talk) 11:41, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
I think Tuamir is asking us to change the protection. --Hunter (talk) 16:09, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Making the main set release dates bold seems clever to me since they are the cut of dates for the Magic Year. I am unsure if the side releases like Commander etc. should be bold as well.
Do we have any other parts of the main page which are editable for auto-confirmed users? If yes, did that make any problems in the past? If no, we could lower the protection to auto-confirmed. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 19:06, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Hunter for your clarification. I was explicit about my reasons before to gain more support and to become transparent, but clearly my request is independent of the reasons I have now or in the future. It's just that I think this page can be improved if more people can edit it. By the way, Yandere Sliver, I found that the Template:Main Magic is editable. --Tuamir (talk) 23:12, 9 November 2016 (UTC)
Done --Hunter (talk) 05:20, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
Not done, haha. Actually you have done that to the talk page, but not to the template page. -- Tuamir (talk) 05:41, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
It's still early in the morning for me --Hunter (talk) 05:44, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Twitch streams

I've added information about which events are streamed. I noticed that this was information that I would have liked to have, and so I assumed it to be true for others as well. Feedback on the formatting and such is welcome! --Sene (talk) 08:48, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

I would probably link the letters, and try to condense their definitions into a single line, possibly at the top of the list. --Corveroth (talk) 08:51, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
I did consider linking the letter, but that would add the external link icon to all of them, no? And I'd prefer to avoid that. We could, I guess, make a Twitch-specific link template to play around it. Definitions on a single line is fine, but I'd prefer to keep them at the bottom of the list. --Sene (talk) 09:41, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
Hmm. One of the bigger restrictions here is horizontal space. Do you run pages for the individual events, or just the players? --Corveroth (talk) 09:45, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
There are individual articles for each Pro Tour event, World Championship, and World Magic Cup. Grand Prix are limited to the Pro Tour season articles. --Sene (talk) 11:24, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
