    WikiProject Goldfish?Edit

    I've recently had the misfortunate of needing to sift through our wiki's numerous goldfish articles to vet a large set of dubious edits. That work is now done, but its gotten me thinking about the state of our coverage of goldfish overall. It is frankly abyssmal. Most goldfish breed articles are stubs, and while sources for standards exist they are not applied consistently. I think that getting together a community of people who understand goldfish could be quite helpful in this regard, similar to the existing WikiProject Dogs. Sadly, I am not myself able to take this on. My knowledge of goldfish is limited, and my time has recently become very limited also. So I'm posting up the call to arms, and I'd be happy to hear your thoughts! --HighFlyingFish (talk) 07:20, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

    Myself, I've never really been into goldfish, so I would be unlikely to participate in that (and we really could use more editors here). --Tryptofish (talk) 19:53, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
    Yes, they need work, but this is already the project for it and it's barely active. The last thing we need is to fork it. Proposals like this at WP:WPPRO generally fail (and most of those that get just enough support to launch then fail the other way, by becoming dead projects within the year).  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  06:52, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

    Flowerhorn cichlidEdit

    Some issues of source reliability and, particularly, close paraphrasing that might be copyright violations, have come up. If other editors could take a look and help remove things that need to be removed, I'd appreciate that very much. --Tryptofish (talk) 23:51, 10 December 2018 (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    A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one.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.

    Request for information on WP1.0 web toolEdit

    Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

    We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:23, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

    First annual Tree of Life Decemberween contestEdit

    After all the fun with the Spooky Species Contest last month, there's a new contest for the (Northern hemisphere's) Winter holidays at Wikipedia:WikiProject Tree of Life/Contest. It's not just Christmas, but anything festive from December-ish. Feel free to add some ideas to the Festive taxa list and enter early and often. --Nessie (talk) 18:16, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

    For the interestedEdit

    I just created George Farmer (aquascaper). Posting here since Aquascaping is within the scope. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 19:31, 5 May 2021 (UTC)
