FAR climate changeEdit
I have nominated Climate change for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Femke Nijsse (talk) 22:08, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
Agreed Measures for the Conservation of Antarctic Fauna and FloraEdit
Hi! Not sure if this is the right place to ask but thought I'd give it a shot! I've been editing the page for the Agreed Measures and was looking for any help/advice to get this article upgraded from a stub to C-class! Any advice would be extremely appreciated! Thanks Bambixie (talk) 06:35, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
Hello all. I drafted two new navboxes for geographical articles on Antarctica, one for West Antarctica, the other for East Antarctica. I primarily used the information presented in the Geography of Antarctica article. I invite the members of the project to review them in my user space and comment here. I think it's a step up from the 2013 Geography of Antarctica navbox, which isn't very useful at this point, I think. If people think those new ones may be useful, I'll revise them and start to paste them on a few hundred pages...
A number of Antarctic exploration-related articles were created by Brianboulton back in 2019, who was a long-time contributor on this topic before they passed away. Many are quite high quality, for example Australasian Antarctic Expedition later became an FA. If anyone is interested, it might be good project to re-assess their quality status, and perhaps nominate them for GA or FA assessment if applicable. The most developed articles in this regard are:
- List of Antarctic exploration ships from the Heroic Age, 1897–1922
- Japanese Antarctic Expedition
- Second German Antarctic Expedition
- Proposed Anglo-Swedish Antarctic Expedition 1915–20
- Joseph Foster Stackhouse
Geography, Features subsection - QuestionEdit
Since 6 August, I am working Cleanup for Antarctica Orphan articles. At Queen Maud Land article, the "See also" section that was accumulating articles was reverted. Wondering if Ok to place these articles as a "Features" subsection under "Geography" heading?
I did similar at Marie Byrd Land Geography section. Because I've already updated hundreds of articles with "See also" section titles, it will be a major task to go back & rename all those SA to "Features" (which I am willing to do) and hoping to reach a concensus here first. Please let me know thoughts & opinions before I continue. Thanks. JoeNMLC (talk) 20:50, 19 August 2021 (UTC)
@4ing: - Regarding recent reverts for "See also" / "Features" section of
Please see question that I opened above. In order to "de-ophan" an artice, I have been adding wikilinks to Antartica locations mentioned in the orphan article. If I'm not allowed to do this, these articles will remain Orphan forever. I am open to any ideas/suggestions of where to place location wikilinks in an article so as to not be reverted. I appreciate an answer of how to solve this as I am not an expert and thought these updates are helping improve Antartica articles. Regards, JoeNMLC (talk) 22:40, 19 August 2021 (UTC)
- Shifting See Alsos into an article section is not a good idea. Perhaps the best way to group features within a geographical area is a WP:NAVBOX. CMD (talk) 02:12, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

Time-sensitive help needed fixing up Endurance (1912 ship)Edit
User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit
I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like
- John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (
John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)
and turns it into something like
- John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14.
The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.
Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
Is south pole capitalized?Edit
I'm copyediting Antarctica for the GOCE May drive and the article is inconsistent on whether it is capitalized or lowercase (and not just between the magnetic and geologic south pole). I'd like to be able to at least make it consistent?
I just checked and apparently the geologic South Pole is capitalized in its article, but not in Antarctica, and the opposite is for the magnetic.
An article that you have been involved in editing—Antarctic—has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Chidgk1 (talk) 09:42, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
"Wikipedia:AY" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit
An editor has identified a potential problem with the redirect Wikipedia:AY and has thus listed it for discussion. This discussion will occur at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2022 June 25#Wikipedia:AY until a consensus is reached, and readers of this page are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

Notification of RfC: Flag for AntarcticaEdit
Seeking consensus on which flag to use for Template:Country data Antarctica. Please discuss at Talk:Flag of Antarctica#RFC on main flag used in the country data template if interested. Federalwafer (talk) 04:32, 21 August 2022 (UTC)
New article additionsEdit
I've been adding the new articles I create to the appropriate section of the project page, but I've noticed I'm the only one who's added anything in the last 7 years. Am I using it incorrectly? I assume I'm not the only person who's created new Antarctica articles since 2015. Federalwafer (talk) 14:17, 23 August 2022 (UTC)
