Women Disobey

I decorated my talk, thank you for the inspiration. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:59, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

It is an awesome photo, isn't it? I knew when I read the words Women Disobey that I must create that page. It is sad that the story of the protests was eclipsed by the senseless shooting at The Capital Gazette. I am having trouble expanding it with Reactions and Aftermath. Two days later, there was another much bigger protest, Families Belong Together (you will love the main infobox photo). That got a lot more coverage. I also started that page and Jmaxfield18 just ran with it (great work!). Jmaxfield18 seems very shy to engage but follows advise, without responding or reverting. A great example of why not to pre-judge an SPA.
Hey, would you be interested in a colloboration project. I have many draft ideas at User:Coffeeandcrumbs/Drafts that I am think of developing. Any of those peak your interest? Or can you suggest something? I have always believe I learn so much when I work side-by-side with someone. It gives me a chance to ask why someone makes certain editing decisions and challenge my own thoughts.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 14:23, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I love collaboration, but am not familiar with the topics and their sources. I will happily look shortly before you want to move a draft, - how is that? I have my routine of writing an article a day, and am 'booked' for weeks to come. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:47, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
I made it one of my examples, Template:User QAIbox/doc#women disobey, feel free to share. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:55, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Flowers, music, balloonEdit

 
flowers, music, balloon

Thank you for what you did for the balloon, image and moar ;) - take some flowers, it's my parents' wedding anniversary, and the bridal flowers were gladiolas from her parents' garden. I share them in loving memory, with a touch of art. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:02, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

1962 Rangoon University protestsEdit

Hello:

The copy edit you requested of the article 1962 Rangoon University protests has been completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Best of luck with the GAN. Regards,

Twofingered Typist (talk) 21:14, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

@Twofingered Typist: Do you have any advise or criticism? Is there any part of the narrative that was lacking? Any part that seemed confusing? I did not write the original so I am interested in your reaction to it. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:27, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
I thought the article was very well written. Most of my edits were to improve its wording. I think it provides a well-rounded history of the protests and their place in Myanmar's history. I don't see any reason for it not to reach GA status. Best of luck. Twofingered Typist (talk) 11:57, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Space 2019Edit

@Gerda Arendt: I just noticed that Neil Armstrong has never been featured on the Main Page. Wouldn't be awesome that on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing (July 1621, 2019), we filled the entire Main Page with stuff related to space exploration and etc. I mean every DYK and OTD + FA. Everything but ITN.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 02:36, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Cool idea, we'd just need to ignore a few rules. First (within the rules, you need to talk to Hawkeye7, because so far he is requested to appear on 16 July, launch day. I'd agree that the day of his most famous sentence is perhaps the better day. Now: it's a rule that the same thing is not featured on the Main page twice. An exception I recall was Frank Sinatra, when two DYK sets of 12 hours were all Sinatra (look for Sinatra, 12 was the day), with an image in every set, and for Jean Sibelius, when they permitted (reluctantly) one DYK on the day along with the TFA of his Eighth Symphony, but no image, - so the only image for him that day was awful, while the better ones appeared a day before and after (look for Sibelius, 8 was the day), and spaced out even more into January 2015, - both anniversaries a few days from each other. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:06, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I was thinking that the DYK would not be difficult if we treated it like we do April Fools, but more serious and focused on space exploration. There can be blurbs about space, aliens, planets, asteroids, stars, constellations, Sci-Fi, anything from beyond Earth. Any and all biographies of astronomers, astronauts and scientists would qualify. We have a whole year to start collecting.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 07:19, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I agree, but talk to the DYK project early in that year, perhaps now ;) - Moon landing seems to deserve the same as Sinatra, 16 hooks, or more, + the TFA. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:23, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
First things first, @Hawkeye7: are you ok with a July 21 celebration nomination instead. Armstrong stepped on the moon at 02:56 UTC on July 21, 1969. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 07:31, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I was confused, - at present, it IS the 21st in WP:TFARP. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:48, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Soliciting comments from DYK peopleEdit

In the possible event I could be wasting people's time by proposing this, I would like comments from Alex Shih, Casliber, Cwmhiraeth, Gatoclass, Maile66, and Yoninah. (Sorry if I missed anyone.) Are there any objections to running a space exploration or STEM theme throughout the DYK for July 21, 2019. This will correspond with the inclusion of Neil Armstrong as the FA of the day. Armstrong stepped foot on the moon at 02:56 UTC on July 21, 1969. We would be marking the 50th anniversary of that landmark event in human history and perhaps demostrating the effects it had over the last 50 years of development in technology.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:19, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

I think it's a positively brilliant idea that already has a precedent. Recent additions/2016/September. Sept 8 & 9 ran 3 full sets on Star Trek. Although, because the earlier space exploration was a race between the USA and the Soviet Union, it also would not be out of place for someone to take Valentina Tereshkova to a GA class about that time to run it. Where would the International Space Station be without the Russians? And the Chinese now, too. Combined space exploration efforts have contributed to international cooperation. Great idea. Maybe coordinate this with the TFA bunch also. — Maile (talk) 23:20, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
A female Russian cosmonaut as lead DYK to compliment is also brilliant. I see the Main Page from 2016 September 8 is a precedent. Pinging Dank, Jimfbleak, Ealdgyth, and Wehwalt. for good measure but I see no problems with TFA for Armstrong.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:37, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Neil Armstrong has already been requested for the 21st (at WP:TFAP). July is Jim's month for scheduling ... Jim? There were recent comments about this on Hawkeye7's talk page. - Dank (push to talk) 23:41, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Because Wikipedia is international, besides the Valentina Tereshkova being taken to GA for DYK, there is also Yang Liwei, the first Chinese national into space. And Liu Yang (astronaut) the first Chinese woman into space. And there's Category:Lists of astronauts by nationality. Lot of possibilities just on the expansion to countries outside the US and USSR/Russia. — Maile (talk) 23:47, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
I'm all for it. I was involved in the Frank Sinatra theme set organized by Dr. Blofeld and it was really fun. We put up new articles and new GAs too. If you have more than 8 articles, you could run them in 12-hour sets. Start making us a list! Yoninah (talk) 23:50, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
Here is the link to the recent discussion at Hawkeye7's talk: User talk:Hawkeye7#WP:TFAP. The discussion there seems to be about including Collins, Aldrin, and/or Apollo 11 alongside Armstrong. Perhaps what we need is a WP:WikiProject Space 2019 page to coordinate efforts in one place and include everyone from DYK, TFA, and possibly even OTD. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:55, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
When they did it with the Star Trek theme, it also included TFA, but I'm not sure how it was coordinated ahead of time. @Miyagawa: you played a large part in the connected articles of that. Do you remember how it was coordinated ahead of time? — Maile (talk) 00:06, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I did the coordination myself for the Star Trek project. In fact it ended up being more of a celebration of the 50th than the actual producers of the show did at the time. So with the Star Trek, I had aimed for the FA and DYK sets - the FP came on quite late as I hadn't realised that we had a Star Trek related FP that hadn't been shown yet. The FA and DYK consultations were done separately - because they were done at the same time. So I don't recall if either side knew it was going to be a main page takeover at first. However, FP knew at the time of nomination. As for coordinating the DYKs, there aren't a great deal of ST editors who work up articles (lots of wikignomes though), but I announced the project at the WikiProject and once I built up a head of articles awaiting DYK, others joined in. As I shall probably do for the new takeover! :) Miyagawa (talk) 09:29, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I am away until September, but will get cracking on Apollo 11 when I return. There's not a lot of time to get multiple articles through FAC. I would be all for a special project. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 00:17, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
@Hawkeye7: Quickly while I have you. I was thinking: Apollo 11 on July 16, Collins on July 19, Aldrin on July 20, and Armstrong on July 21.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 00:22, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
All this sounds really good. Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 02:18, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I'd swap Neil and Buzz around so Neil goes first.   Hawkeye7 (discuss) 02:46, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I've no objection in principle on running a themed TFA series, depending on what's available by then. Not keen on 12-hour TFA runs though, world time zones mean some people won't even have the opportunity to see some TFAs. If we are going to do it, let's give them full value and extend the run if necessary. Dank, Ealdgyth, and Wehwalt. for comments on 12-hour idea Jimfbleak - talk to me? 06:15, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
@Jimfbleak: Perhaps, we should wait to make decisions on specifics. As long as you agree in principle to running a series of TFAs. I think the 12 hour Yoninah mentioned is for DYK which is running a theme concurrently. My idea is to fill the whole Main Page with a theme. As far as TFA is concerned, my idea is to run a series on specific milestone days: July 16 (launch date), July 19 (enter lunar orbit), July 20 (landing on moon a few hours before midnight), July 21 (Armstrong steps on the moon after several hours in the lunar module). --- Coffeeandcrumbs 06:25, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

─────────────────────────I would get them to FA first and then worry about what order to run them in. I remember 9 years ago there were complaints we had nothing much to run on the 40th anniversary. I wouldn't mind an embarrassment of riches for the 50th. I've been working on Apollo 15 postage stamp incident and may do additional improvement on that mission's articles, by the way.--Wehwalt (talk) 08:28, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Coffeeandcrumbs Miyagawa's comments above bring up another aspect that could be included, that of Featured picture. — Maile (talk) 13:44, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

@Maile66: Noticed that. I am incorporating everything people are saying in WP:S2019 --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:21, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Recruit/Indoctrinate :) Kees08Edit

You may have been curious why I suddenly became interested in your work. I am trying to organize a major takeover of the Main Page on the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Walk. It may be for a single day, maybe for 3 days, or maybe for a whole week or more. The idea is to fill as much of the Main Page with items related to space exploration. Crucial to this endeavor are several FA articles, namely the FA for Neil Armstrong, and possible FAs for Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, and the Apollo 11 article itself.

You can read the discussions above where many of the stakeholders from TFA and DYK have already expressed interest if not enthusiasm. Tell me what you think.

But a crucial step is getting the golden stars on the crucial articles we need. You just so happen to be working on that. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 19:15, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

That is literally the exact same thing I am doing, so far I had only recruited Hawkeye7. I have a large number of astronaut biographies and have been listening to many audiobooks as well. I have Collins at GAN with Aldrin as my next target. So thank you for your interest and for recruiting me to a larger, more organized cause than I created :). Kees08 (Talk) 19:39, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
@Kees08: If you like that you should check out WP:S2019 (a work in progress). --- Coffeeandcrumbs 19:43, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Neat. You can also view the adopt an astronaut page if you would like to see astronaut article progression over the last year or so. Kees08 (Talk) 23:12, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
We are planning to do featured lists too right? I have some in mind I was planning to expand. Kees08 (Talk) 03:34, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
In my preliminary plan there is space for two lists, a special edition on July 21 and a regular edition on July 19 which I think falls on a Friday. I don't have a tab ready for discussing it. Just post it under miscellaneous for now. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 03:41, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Probably worth inviting WP:Spaceflight at some point. Kees08 (Talk) 02:59, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Recruit the Lord of the Iron Islands, King of Salt and Rock, Son of the Sea Wind, and Lord Reaper of PykeEdit

Dear Lord Balon Greyjoy, I was wondering if you have read some of the pings I sent while your were on a wiki-break. I am collecting DYK's for a featured take over of the Main Page to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Walk on July 21, 2019. Your DYK nomination for Wally Schirra could to be included in this project and reserved for publication that week. Would this be some thing you would be interested in? Please read the above threads to get an idea of what we have in mind. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 06:02, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

I would be interested in helping out with this project, both with the Wally Schirra DYK and further improvement to space articles. I just moved to a new country and am still getting situated, so I can't edit much over the next month or so. But I would be happy to contribute in preparation for the 50th anniversary. Balon Greyjoy (talk) 06:11, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
@Balon Greyjoy:Could you add a note to the nomination template saying you would like to reserve this DYK for July 2019? The word of the nominator is all that is required to save a DYK for a specific date. I will make sure the problems are fixed and it passes DYK review. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 06:20, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Done! Balon Greyjoy (talk) 06:29, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Recruit WP:MILEdit

Hi AustralianRupert! Would WP:MIL be interested in WP:S2019? We are organizing a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing on July 21, 2019. Many of the articles we aim to target and populate on the Main Page are military veterans with long and distinguished careers in the armed forces. We want to internationalize and diversify our reach to include the most notable contributors to the space race, many of whom are notable figures in the Russian military. Please offer your thoughts.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 02:20, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

G'day, Coffeeandcrumbs, I am no longer acting as a co-ordinator of MILHIST, so can't really comment here. Sorry. I believe there would be quite a few project members who would be interested in this effort, but I think it would be best if you post a query at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Military history. All the best and good luck with your project. Regards, AustralianRupert (talk) 04:57, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Deletion review for Kane TanakaEdit

An editor has asked for a deletion review of Kane Tanaka. Because you closed the deletion discussion for this page, speedily deleted it, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the deletion review. 100.40.125.198 (talk) 16:48, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

No, I am not convinced this is a legitimate notification. I believe you targeted me because of my previous support for this article. You have lost a !vote by gaming the system. I was already aware of this and was considering what to do and say. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 17:13, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
I didn't lose anything i was just notifying people about the discussion as User:Andrew Davidson did with the Chiyo Miyako deletion review you can do whatever you like as you've probably already seen several people involved with the AFD have already voted but User:Editorofthewiki who started the deletion review request didn't notify the people involved with the AFD so i decided to. 100.40.125.198 (talk) 18:24, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
But did you notify everyone who voted or commented on the AfD? No! The proper way to do this is to notify everyone, even the delete voters. Every person you notified !voted Keep. You were clearly WP:VOTESTACKING. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 19:04, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
No i wasn't 5 or 6 out of the 8 that voted Delete in the AFD already voted in the Deletion Review and i haven't notified all the people that voted Keep yet either I'm busy but I'm going to notify everyone who didn't vote yet. 100.40.125.198 (talk) 20:28, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, where is the problem with "Marketing" section specifically? Hddty. (talk) 22:24, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

@Hddty.: In the "Marketing" section, I have marked a paragraph with "Not in source cited". In the "Other venues in Jakarta", there several more capacities listed with no source. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 01:30, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
What specifically "Not in source cited"? That one paragraph is based on a cited PDF. Hddty. (talk) 01:40, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Not in the source:
  • "The same day the logo was unveiled, three new mascots were also unveiled, replacing the previous cenderawasih mascot"
  • "They represents the Eastern, Central, and Western regions of Indonesia"
--- Coffeeandcrumbs 04:30, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
I have added some source. Hddty. (talk) 05:57, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! I am usually much more helpful in helping nomination by actively improving them myself. Just been busy. I hope you don't feel I was holding it up. I have marked it as ready. I will wait a few hours and upgrade to needs attention. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 07:18, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Portals WikiProject update #017, 22 Aug 2018Edit

This issue is about portal creation...

Creating new portalsEdit

Myself and others have been testing and experimenting with the new components in upgrading existing portals and in building new portals. They have now been applied in hundreds of portals.

The templates are ready for general use for portal creation.

They are still a bit buggy, but the only way we are going to work the rest of the bugs out is by using them and reporting the bugs as we come across them.

I look forward to seeing what new portals you create!

Be sure to report bugs at WT:WPPORTD.

The main portal creation template is {{box portal skeleton}}.

Portal creation tipsEdit

After starting a portal using {{box portal skeleton}}...

  1. Placing a panorama (banner picture) at the top of the intro section is a nice touch, and really makes a portal look good. {{box portal skeleton}} doesn't automatically insert panoramas. So, you will need to do that by hand. They can be found at Commons:. For some examples, check out Portal:Sharks, Portal:Cheese, and Portal:Florence
  2. The search term provided in the Did you know? and In the news sections is very basic and rarely matches anything. It is best to replace that term with multiple search arguments, if possible (separate each argument with a pipe character). For example, in Portal:Capital punishment, see https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Portal:Capital_punishment&diff=855255361&oldid=855137403 Searches in templates use Lua search notation.
  3. Check the In the news and Did you know? sections for mismatches. That is, sometimes entries come up that shouldn't be displayed. If there are any, refine the search strings further, so they don't return such results.
  4. Finish each portal you've created before creating a new one. We don't want unfinished portals sitting around.

Mirka Mora in the newsEdit

Thank you for changing back to 'media' (much appreciated!) and for the heads-up re the WP:ITNC#RD: Mirka Mora nomination. Tomorrow morning I will try at least to get a list of her exhibitions up asap and delve through newspaper & magazine articles for reviews to ensure there is more focus on Mirka's career...perhaps her very colourful character has unfortunately blinkered the editors of this bio from concentrating on what she did? And yes there is a concern that she is eclipsed here by her ex-husband Georges, for whom I had started a separate article some time back, so he doesn't need much space here.

Portals WikiProject update #021, 24 Oct 2018Edit

Portals have passed the 4,000 mark.

More new portals...Edit

Here's a list of portals created since the last issue

List of new portals

Please inspect these portals, report problems or suggest improvements at WT:WPPORTD, or develop them further (see below). Thank you.

What's next?Edit

There is still lots to do...

There are many subject gaps that need to be filled. This can be done by creating new portals, or by adding Selected article sections to existing portals. To create a new portal, simply place {{subst:Basic portal start page}} on an empty portal page, and click "Preview". If the portal is complete, click "Save". After you try it, come share your experience and excitement at WT:WPPORTD.

Each new portal is just a starting point. Each portal of the new design can be further developed by:

  • refining the search parameters to improve the results displayed in the Did you know and In the news sections.
  • adding more specific Selected articles sections, like Selected biographies.
  • inserting a Recognized content section.
  • adding more pictures to the image slideshow.
  • placing a panoramic picture at the top of the intro section (especially for geographic portals).

Besides the new portals, there are still about 1200 portals of the old design that need to be converted to the new design.

Many portals need to be de-orphaned, by placing links to them (in the See also section of the corresponding root articles, at the bottom of the corresponding navigation footer templates, and on the corresponding category pages).

Many of the new portals still need to be listed at Portal:Contents/Portals.

Bugs keep popping up in portals. These need to be tracked down and reported at WT:WPPORTD.

Tools are needed to make developing and maintaining portals quicker and easier.

Dreaming up new features and capabilities. Innovation needs to continue, to design the portal of tomorrow, and the portal development-maintenance-system of the future. Automation!

So, if you find yourself with a little (or a lot) of free time, pick an area (or more) above and...

Could you ...Edit

declare if you have a conflict of interest at Creative Planning? There have been some obviously paid edits by others at that page re: the fine CP paid. I will revert your last 2 edits. Smallbones(smalltalk) 01:40, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

@Smallbones: I don't have a conflict of interest. I just thought it was undue weight for so much of the article to be about the fine. This seems like a case of recentism. These fines are minor violations compared to other fines levied in the industry: [1][2][3]. These fines are par for the course and not very notable. I don't think it should be in the lede per NPOV when compared to how we treat these firms elsewhere on WP. I also don't think RIABiz meets Wikipedia standards for RS. You have also resorted to citing the court documents themselves. That indicates to me that you are promoting to make something not noted in the press notable on WP.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 05:50, 21 November 2018 (UTC)


Wikipedia:WikiProject Portals update #023, 25 Nov 2018Edit

There are now 4,180 portals.

Will we break 5,000 by the end of the year?

I know we can. But, that is up to you!

( New portals are created with {{subst:Basic portal start page}} or {{subst:bpsp}} )

Happy HolidaysEdit

Spread the WikiLove; use {{subst:Season's Greetings}} to send this message

Jingling alongEdit

The following portals have been created since the last issue:

Keep 'em coming!

By the way, the above list was generated using this Petscan query. It can be easily modified by changing the date. The data page (under the Output tab) also has options for receiving the data in CSV or tabbed format, which some operating systems automatically load into a spreadsheet program for ease of use, such as copying and pasting the desired column (like page names).

In closingEdit

We'll keep it short this issue.

Expect a flood next time. Or the one after that.

RefsEdit

For my eyes, to have reference in the texts is tough to read in edit mode. Why change? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:25, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

It makes using Visual Editor almost impossible.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:30, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Also: why change to "interlanguage link multi" when there's no "multi", - misleading and also hard to read. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 2 minutes ago

I regret that edit.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:30, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
Gerda, please take over. I speak no German. Glad you are online.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:32, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
To both: all featured and good articles I wrote have the refs in a separate section, - making it easy to edit a ref if you want to edit a ref, without a search for it in the article, + the text is much easier to read. - Sorry that I know nothing about visual editor, - first time I hear that. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:46, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
It is just a personal preference. I am not opposed to other way as long as it is consistently used. Before I edited the article was using both. I move everything to reflist template now.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 15:58, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Amos OzEdit

Hi, I see we're working in tandem, searching for sources. Nowhere have I found that he wrote for Davar as a young man. The biographies being written after his death are quoting from the Wikipedia article, and The New Yorker article from 2004 doesn't say anything about him writing for Davar before he published his first short story collection. In fact, he wrote political essays for Davar which he collected into a book later in life. Here's another fact-filled source: [4]. Best, Yoninah (talk) 23:17, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

Agreed. One second while I fix that. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:46, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
Nice work. We are ready for ITN now I think.--- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:52, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Portals update #024, 26 Dec 2018Edit

Last issue, I mentioned there would be a flood, and so, here it is...

Portals statusEdit

We now have 4,620 portals.

And the race to pass 5,000 by year's end is on...

Can we make it?

The New Year, and the 5,001st portal, await.

( New portals are created with {{subst:Basic portal start page}} or {{subst:bpsp}} )

Evad is back!Edit

After disappearing in mid-thread, Evad37 has returned from a longer than expected wikibreak.

Be sure to welcome him back.

Improved cropping is coming to Portal image bannerEdit

User:FR30799386 is working on making {{Portal image banner}} even better by enabling it to chop the top off an image as well as the bottom.

Many pictures aren't suitable for banners because they are too tall. Therefor, User:FR30799386 added cropping to this template, so that an editor could specify part of a picture to be used rather than the whole thing.

Upgrade of flagship portals is underwayEdit

Work has begun on upgrading Wikipedia's flagship portals (those listed at the top of the Main page).

So far, Portal:Geography, Portal:History, and Portal:Technology have been revamped. Of course, you are welcome to improve them further.

Work continues on the other five. Feel free to join in on the fun.

Spotting missing portals that are redirectsEdit

In place of many missing portals, there is a redirect that leads to "the next best topic", such as a parent topic.

Most of these were created before we had the tools to easily create portals (they used to take 6 hours or more to create, because it was all done manually). Rather than leave a portal link red, some editors thought it was best that those titles led somewhere.

The subjects that have sufficient coverage should have their own portals rather than a redirect to some other subject.

Unfortunately, being blue like all other live links, redirects are harder to spot than redlinks.

To spot redirects easily, you can make them all appear green.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Portals update #025, 30 Dec 2018Edit

We can now crop the tops of pics to make bannersEdit

Before, we could only cut off the bottom of pics.

User:FR30799386 has pulled it off, and made the upgrade to {{Portal image banner}}...

So, this:

Niagara falls, from the Canadian side

Becomes this:

Niagara falls, from the Canadian side

Here's the code for the above banner:

{{Portal image banner|File:American Falls from Canadian side in winter.jpg | [[Niagara falls]], from the Canadian side |maxheight=175px |overflow=Hidden|croptop=10}}

To see it employed in a portal, check out Portal:Niagara Falls.

About that end of the year goal...Edit

We were racing against time to create 5,000 portals by the end of the year (just for the heck of it).

We made it. We've passed the 5,000 portals mark, with time to spare!

And the 5,000th portal is Portal:Major League Baseball, by Happypillsjr.

Congratulations!

What's next?Edit

The 10,000th portal mark. But...

...there is plenty else to do in addition to building new portals:

  1. The new portals need to be linked to from the encyclopedia.
  2. On those portals about subjects that are not typically capitalized, the search parameters need to be refined/expanded, to maximize the chances of Did you know and In the news items being found and displayed.
  3. A Recognized content section needs to be added to each portal that has a corresponding WikiProject.
  4. Addition of a category on those portals that lack a subject category.
  5. Implement the portal category system, adding the appropriate categories to each portal.
  6. Upgrade, and complete (as per the tasks enumerated above), the old-style portals that are not regularly maintained, which have not been converted yet (about 1,100 of them).
  7. Find and fix the remaining bugs in the underlying lua modules.
  8. Build portal tools (scripts) to assist in the creation, development, and maintenance of portals.
  9. Build a script to help build navbox footer templates, via the harvesting of categories, amongst other methods.
  10. Update the portal building instructions.
  11. Update the portal guideline.
  12. Refine the programming of the portals to reduce their load time.
  13. Design and develop the next generation of portals and portal components.

And whatever else you can dream up.  

But most of all, have a...

2019Edit

--Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:08, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Please check out "Happy" once more, for a smile, and sharing (a Nobel Peace Prize), and resolutions. I wanted that for 1 January, but then wasn't sad about having our music pictured instead. Not too late for resolutions, New Year or not. DYK that he probably kept me on Wikipedia, back in 2012? By the line (which brought him to my attention, and earned the first precious in br'erly style) that I added to my editnotice, in fond memory? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:35, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Gerda, what a beautiful soul Arritt was. IntoThinAir deserves their second precious for creating this article. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 22:00, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
As long as my memory works, there's only one precious ;) - But you can say something! - In case you ever have to do with arbitration, consult the beautiful soul's ultimate guide! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:06, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion declined: File:JaymeCloss.jpgEdit

Hello Coffeeandcrumbs, and thanks for patrolling new pages! I am just letting you know that I declined the speedy deletion of File:JaymeCloss.jpg, a page you tagged for speedy deletion, because of the following concern: Not to the F7 standard. Please see WP:CSD#F7. You may wish to review the Criteria for Speedy Deletion before tagging further pages. Thank you. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 23:22, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Amanda. Would it be appropriate to place {{Rfu}} on this file? The image is now replaceable. The missing child was found. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:29, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
I would have concerns about it also being tagged with that. It's true that the replaceable section needs to be updated, but i'm concerned that there is no free equivalent at this time, and likely won't be created any time soon with the victim in recovery. Therefore I would view such a rationale as valid. It may be better to bring up at FFD to get experts on NFCC to comment more. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 00:32, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

ITN creditEdit

 On 17 January 2019, In the news was updated with an item that involved the article Laurent Gbagbo, which you updated. If you know of another recently created or updated article suitable for inclusion in ITN, please suggest it on the candidates page. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:50, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
