Portal:Horse racingEdit

Any chance you could alter the contrast between the background and text in the section headings. Possibly white text or lighten the present background. Thanks. Cuddy Wifter (talk) 22:49, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Hows that look? I'm still trying to figure out if I want to keep those colors, I was going for the look of the dirt and turf, but I don't think they go real well together. Joe I 22:52, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
I think the shade of green for the background is good, and the white text makes it much more readable. You're doing a great job. Cuddy Wifter (talk) 23:14, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
ok, thnx I appreciate the help Joe I 00:18, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

I notice that you have made a start on the Topics section of the Portal. Unfortunately, I have also started on this section which is here. I am prepared to complete this section if you wish to work on other areas. What do you think? Regards Cuddy Wifter (talk) 09:05, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Ok, yeah. Yours looks much better than mine, I was starting to get alittle confused on how to put things, but yours looks good. Joe I 13:35, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Searchme, please do not put the horse racing portal into a bunch of article namespaces, especially given that we don't even put Portal:Horses there! It's a nice portal, but if you notice, Portal:Horses is discreetly transcluded into the WPEQ template that goes on the TALK pages. We don't want to be putting the portal into 3000 articles, putting in on the template is way easier and doesn't clutter up the article namespace. I think you ought to put the portal into the TB horse racing WikiProject's template, so it automatically gets placed in all the horse racing articles. You can also take the portal to [{WP:EQUINE|WPEQ's]] talk page and see if we want to add it to our template also. (or as an option within the template the way we have the horse breeds task force and horse training task force tags on some, but not all articles). I'm not trying to be harsh, I just don't want to have to either add the horses portal to 500 articles or remove yours from 500 articles...the templates are a MUCH better way to go! Montanabw(talk) 03:38, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I can see some of that. Thats cool. Joe I 23:58, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Great. You're doing good work. The interaction between WPEQ and the horse racing stuff is not a direct correlation, some of us are in both projects, but not all. It's a good synergy because WPEQ could not possibly deal with all the racing sports stuff. It's a big tent. Montanabw(talk) 20:22, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Infobox noteEdit

A tag has been placed on Template:Infobox note requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned template.

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivityEdit

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in over one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Hello! This is a note to let know the main editors of the article List of circulating currencies that it will be appearing as the main page featured list on March 28, 2014. You can view the TFL blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured list/March 28, 2014. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured list directors Giants2008 (talk · contribs), Crisco 1492 (talk · contribs) or SchroCat (talk · contribs), or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured list. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad.

March Madness 2017Edit

G'day all, please be advised that throughout March 2017 the Military history Wikiproject is running its March Madness drive. This is a backlog drive that is focused on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • updating the project's currently listed A-class articles to ensure their ongoing compliance with the listed criteria
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various task force pages or other lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the military history scope will be considered eligible. More information can be found here for those that are interested, and members can sign up as participants at that page also.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 March and runs until 23:59 UTC on 31 March 2017, so please sign up now.

2019 US Banknote ContestEdit

Commons WikiProject Numismatics concept logo (2017).png US Banknote Contest Flag of the United States.svg
November-December 2019

There are an estimated 30,000 different varieties of United States banknotes, yet only a fraction of these are represented on Wikimedia Commons in the form of 2D scans. Additionally, Colonial America, the Confederate States, the Republic of Texas, multiple states and territories, communities, and private companies have issued banknotes that are in the public domain today but are absent from Commons.

In the months of November and December, WikiProject Numismatics will be running a cross-wiki upload-a-thon, the 2019 US Banknote Contest. The goal of the contest is to increase the number of US banknote images available to content creators on all Wikimedia projects. Participants will claim points for uploading and importing 2D scans of US banknotes, and at the end of the contest all will receive awards. Whether you want to claim the Gold Wiki or you just want to have fun, all are invited to participate.


If you do not want to receive invitations to future US Banknote Contests, follow the instructions here

Correction to previous election announcementEdit

Just a quick correction to the prior message about the 2022 MILHIST coordinator election! I (Hog Farm) didn't proofread the message well enough and left out a link to the election page itself in this message. The voting will occur here; sorry about the need for a second message and the inadvertent omission from the prior one. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:42, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
