Notice from the Portals WikiProject edit

WikiProject Portals is back!

The project was rebooted and completely overhauled on April 17th, 2018. Its goals are to revitalize the entire portal system, make building and maintaining portals easier, support the ongoing improvement of portals and the editors dedicated to this, and design the portals of the future.

As of May 2nd, 2018, membership is at 60 editors, and growing. You are welcome to join us.

There are design initiatives for revitalizing the portals system as a whole, and for improving each component of portals. So far, 2 new dynamic components have been developed: Template:Transclude lead excerpt and Template:Transclude random excerpt.

Tools are provided for building and maintaining portals, including automated portals that update themselves in various ways.

And, if you are bored and would like something to occupy your mind, we have a wonderful task list.

From your friendly neighborhood Portals WikiProject. Hope to see you there. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   07:36, 2 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Selected biographies: BLP auto-updates edit

I've changed the BLP selected biographies to use automated transclusion from the relevant article, see e.g. Portal:Literature/Selected biography/24. The reason for that is so we don't forget to update them when something major happens (say, they die or receive the Nobel Prize). I haven't touched the extracts for dead people. —Kusma (t·c) 10:53, 4 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
