Featured contentEdit

Featured articlesEdit

Good articlesEdit

As Haapsalu Castle just passed good article review, I noticed that it the only GA-class Estonian article (see Category:GA-Class Estonia articles). Come on, guys and gals, we can do better than that! How about trying to pass at least Estonia, Tallinn, Tartu and few others important Estonian articles through GA review (Bronze Soldier of Tallinn would be good as well, except there is way too much edit warring for GA). Ideally, we should try to get GA for all Category:Top-importance Estonia articles – and then attempt featured article on few best ones. – Sander Säde 05:52, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

AnnouncementsEdit

14 000 tagged pagesEdit

Wikipedia:WikiProject_Estonia/publicwatchlist has now 14090 tagged pages. Sander Säde 09:32, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

13 000 tagged pagesEdit

Thanks to a new tool to find WP:Estonia-related articles and categories, we went over 13 000 tagged pages today. A year and a month for 1000 pages. --Sander Säde 08:44, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

12 000 tagged pagesEdit

A new milestone - 12 058 articles are tagged with {{WikiProject Estonia}}. As you can see from the last news item, it has taken us almost 850 days to add 2000 pages - on average, 2.42 pages/day. --Sander Säde 08:37, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments, also in EstoniaEdit

Hey, in coming September there will be photo contest in several European countries about and around national heritage monuments. So, check your camara and find out more at http://www.wikilovesmonuments.ee/ --WikedKentaur (talk) 16:06, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

10 000 tagged pagesEdit

As of now, we have 10 022 Wikipedia pages tagged with {{WikiProject Estonia}}, 1156 of which are categories and 7984 are articles (rest are templates, files and such). The number has largely increased thanks to the geographical stubs by Flying Saucer (talk · contribs) and Pelmeen10 (talk · contribs). However, once again, time to go for quality and not quantity! --Sander Säde 08:57, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Estonian nature photos competition, 2010Edit

There's an ongoing Estonian nature photos competition (till October 3, 2010), main page in Estonian – et:Vikipeedia:HELP – and summary in English – commons:Commons:Estonian nature photos competition, 2010. Participants are welcome. --WikedKentaur (talk) 09:07, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

5000 tagged articles reachedEdit

Today we've reached 5034 articles, categories and templates tagged with Template:WikiProject Estonia. Well done, everybody! Now that we have the quantity, time to improve the quality of articles. --Sander Säde 12:46, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

MTÜ Wikimedia EestiEdit

As there is a plan to create a local chapter in Estonia then would here be someone interested of becoming a member of this chapter, titled MTÜ Wikimedia Eesti? Iffcool (talk) 23:42, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Created. Avjoska (talk) 21:24, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Cult stonesEdit

Among ancient sacral landmarks in Estonia are cult stones (see [1]). To my knowledge, this phenomenon is not unique to Estonia; several neighbouring cultures also have them. Unfortunately, I haven't yet found the appropriate article.

Where should I look for it, or is there a need to create one? ΔιγουρενΕμπρος! 11:36, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Baltic cinema task forceEdit

Baltic cinema task force ready for sign ups.--Termer (talk) 02:25, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Soviet and post-Soviet cinema task forceEdit

The Baltic states task force for WikiProject Military historyEdit

The Baltic states military history task force is all set up and ready for sign up--Termer 06:29, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

2000 WikiProject Estonia articlesEdit

We recently went over 2000 articles tagged for WP:WPET. Well done, everybody!

However, 1052 of them are stub-class, 629 are start-class and 218 are unassessed. No featured class articles and just one GA-level article. Quality, people, quality, not quantity! Perhaps a little motivation is needed – how about a barnstar for getting next article to GA level and Award of the Soaring Swallow for the first FA level article? Let's get cracking, people!

-- Sander Säde 18:20, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I went through the unassessed articles and assessed them... pita, but at least now it is done. – Sander Säde 16:57, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

SuggestionEdit

In order to bolster development of the Estonian articles, it would be great to improve referencing and expand coverage. My suggestion is to proceed from sources to articles rather than other way round. Something along the following lines could work:

1) Enter an Estonia-related search term in Google Scholar
2) Choose an interesting source among the results
3) Summarize (some important part of) it briefly so that you don’t violate copyright
4) Insert claims from the summary with properly formatted inline references into various relevant articles

What do you think of this? Colchicum 14:59, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Pay attention to this [2] (only about 1000 items, not 132,000) and this [3] (only about 750 items, not 22,900). Colchicum 16:52, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

List of recent Estonia-related changesEdit

I wrote a minor script, that displays this page on top of your watchlist. It should work without Twinkle and it is relatively untested. If you need to change the options, edit the URL – namely &hideminor=0&days=1&limit=50, it should be self-explanatory. To install (instructions blatantly stolen from Twinkle page):
1. copy the text below and paste it into the bottom of your monobook.js file:
2. save the new monobook.js page, and
3. completely refresh your browser by bypassing your cache (hit Control-Shift-R in Firefox or Control-F5 in Internet Explorer).
The script:
addOnloadHook(estRelated);
 
function estRelated() {
  if (document.URL.indexOf('Special:Watchlist') == -1) return;
  estaj=sajax_init_object(null);
  estaj.open("GET", "http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Recentchangeslinked&target=Wikipedia:WikiProject_Estonia/EA&hideminor=0&days=1&limit=50", true);
  estaj.onreadystatechange = function()
  {
    if(estaj.readyState != 4) return;
    sPage = estaj.responseText; 
    document.getElementById("contentSub").innerHTML = sPage.substring(sPage.indexOf("<h4>"), sPage.indexOf('<div class="printfooter">') - 25);   
  };
  estaj.send(null);
}
Please let me know if you have any problems or ideas.

DLX 07:56, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

It might be good to use as URL in this script http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Recentchangeslinked&target=User:Sander_S%C3%A4de/WPEarticles&hideminor=0&days=7&limit=50 (as link), which is updated (hopefully) more often then previous one – and contains all WikiProject Estonia articles and talk pages – you can see the list here. That list gets updated whenever I (or if someone else wants to do it as well – go ahead) runs this script. Sander Säde 18:22, 9 July 2007 (UTC)


Updated watchlist script is available from here. Sander Säde 10:08, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
