Anglo-Scandinavian edit

Hello lovely people. I've noticed that the Anglo-Scandinavian page was a stub as of 2 days ago, which is not ideal given its incredible importance to the topic. I whacked in a few sentences but have been very busy so haven't had time to do much with it yet - if anyone's got some free time do please add anything Faust.TSFL (talk) 13:50, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is not an article I have come across before. I do not understand why the title is italicized, which looks wrong to me. Dudley Miles (talk)
Dudley Miles for what it's worth, the title was italicised here here based on MOS:WORDSASWORDS and presumably WP:ITALICTITLE. TSventon (talk) 17:28, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the information. The justification makes no sense. The article is about a culture, not words as words. I will delete the italicization. Dudley Miles (talk) 19:21, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dudley Miles, I think the justification made sense in 2018, but not with the recent additions. TSventon (talk) 19:41, 1 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Style Guide edit

The wikiproject page states that this project 'does not, as of now, have its own style guide'. Given particularly the complexities of OE names and standardisation (see my comments on the Ewalds page, for example), should this be a thing we should be thinking about?Faust.TSFL (talk) 19:09, 4 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessments edit

Quality assessments are used by Wikipedia editors to rate the quality of articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project decides to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Women in Green's 5th Edit-a-thon edit

 

Hello WikiProject Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!
