February 2009 Orphans now <5,000Edit

4,999 as of this morning. Mccapra (talk) 12:46, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

So close, yet so far. Congrats everyone who's been working on it! ♠PMC(talk) 14:57, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

February 2009 Orphans now <4,000Edit

3,999 as of this morning. Mccapra (talk) 06:02, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Do we want a concentrated effort to bring February 2013 articles below 4000? The only category that is above 4000 articles now. --Xaiver0510 (talk) 02:23, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Does anyone has AWB access?Edit

Noted an editor tagging non-orphaned articles as orphans (mostly footballer articles with names starting with A onwards). I have actually left a note to ask him to adjust his AWB settings (which is set to the old definition of minimum of 3 incoming links) and just asked him to revert the orphan tagging. About 150 articles are affected so AWB might be faster to fix it... --Xaiver0510 (talk) 02:17, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

We should ask the AWB people if they can adjust that default, too. ♠PMC(talk) 02:31, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
I think it was adjusted but there are those who downloaded AWB with the old defaults and then starts to tag non-orphan articles as orphans... --Xaiver0510 (talk) 02:36, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Membership listsEdit

Wikipedia:WikiProject Orphanage#Active members lists many editors who haven't edited at all for years. I marked a couple for you, but perhaps you'd like to consider moving to Wikipedia:WikiProject X's more automated membership system? I think that User:Harej runs a bot to archive inactive users, and then you'd never have to bother with outdated lists again. WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:25, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

New database reportEdit

The wikiproject may be interested in checking out Wikipedia:Database reports/Orphans with incoming links. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 02:23, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
