WikiWomen's History Month

Hi everyone. March is Women's History Month and I'm hoping a few folks here at WP:Asia will have interest in putting on events (on and off wiki) related to women's roles in Asia's history, society and culture. We've created an event page on English Wikipedia (please translate!) and I hope you'll find the inspiration to participate. These events can take place off wiki, like edit-a-thons, or on wiki, such as themes and translations. Please visit the page here: WikiWomen's History Month. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to seeing events take place! SarahStierch (talk) 21:26, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bang Habib article.

Hello. I've just recently nominated Bang Habib and Eri Satria to the AfD board because I feel that these two articles, created by SaidMuqaffa (talk · contribs), don't really look like legit articles with no reliable links and sources to prove their existence. The Bang Habib article even looks like a partial copy-edit because its infobox has TV3 Sweden's logo. I'm not from Indonesia myself to forward any more proof other than my hunches, so I'm asking any good and credible user from Indonesia, especially from Langsa, where the two "stations" are allegedly based, to have their say. I've already forwarded this to the Wikiproject Indonesia discussion page, but I also want to reach out to anyone who also lurks here for further assistance. I appreciate your help. Thanks! - 上村七美 (Nanami-chan) | talkback | contribs 11:55, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Incorrect Info -- the "List of Largest Asian Cities"

In this wiki article of "Largest Asian Cities," there is no listing of Chongqing China, with a metro area population of 28.8 million (2010 data). This places Chongqing as the 2nd largest under Tokyo. Tokyo's 38 million figure uses its metro area, and Chongqing should be treated accordingly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.84.234.41 (talk) 08:31, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

CfD discussion for societies and cultures

There is a discussion going on right now at WP:Categories for discussion that involves changing the category names for all cultures, from, for example, "Afghan society" to "Society of Afghanistan". I can see that next will be changing "German culture" to "Culture of Germany" and the like. This would be for all ethnicities, nationalities and cultures.
If you would like to weigh in, the conversation is occurring at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 March 27#Society by country.

Leaflet for Wikiproject Asia at Wikimania 2014

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific

This article is listed as being within the scope of this Wikiproject. Does anybody have experience working with these kinds of articles? It's somewhat readable up until Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific#The Top 10 Super Conglomerates where in turns in long lists and tables of information seemingly unrelated at all to the subject of the article. It's almost as if multiple unrelated articles have been mashed together. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this might be improved? - Marchjuly (talk) 14:25, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Indochina

See this discussion: Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2015_February_26#Category:Indochina. There is apparently a need for an article about Indochina as a regional name that is still being used (so not just a historical/colonial name), is someone willing to give it a start?

Accomplished. Do you want the image from the member template substituted into the banner, maybe in place of the image on the left?

WikiProject X is live!

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Help with lists of state leaders by year

Asia is generally under represented in articles like List of state leaders in 1723 which delineates 137 sub-units of the Holy Roman Empire but does not yet show the Mughal Emperor. I have been working on a few of them on and off, for at least 6 years, but I have realized I just do not have the patience to fix these lists on my own. So if some people would like to come and help add more people to the list it would be greatly appreciated. List of state leaders in 1759 is closer to being complete than most, but it invites help with better organization. There are just so many states that existed in India at that time, I am not sure if there might be a better way to organize them. On the other hand, if someone wants to, they might try imposing the East/Southeast/South Asia breakdown on lists from other years. Any help would be appreciated. In either the 16th, 17th or 18th centuries there may still be years where the only countries in Asia listed are China, Japan, Korea and the Ryuku Kingdom. There is a huge amount of work to do. I would appreciate anyone who would like helping. Please.John Pack Lambert (talk) 04:48, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Media upload of historical photographs of various countries in Asia

Dear editors,

I would like to draw your attention to a media upload that may be of relevance to this page:

The Temminck Groll Collection consists of 2,641 historical photographs taken by the Dutch architect and architectural historian Coen Temminck Groll (1925-2015). The photos were taken in regions with which the Dutch have had historical relations, including countries in Africa, South America and Southeast Asia (see the category description for a full listing). The photos were taken during Temminck Groll's travels and study of 'shared cultural heritage' (heritage of the Netherlands located outside the country’s borders) and mainly date to the 1960s and 1970s. The photographs were digitised by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands and made available to Wikimedia Commons in the context of the project The Netherlands and the world. If you have any questions about this upload, or have other media requests regarding Dutch shared cultural heritage, don't hesitate to leave a message at the project page!

Popular pages report

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/Archive 1/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Asia.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Asia, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Recruit new editors for your project?

Happy new year! As you may remember, I've been building a tool to help WikiProjects identify and recruit new editors to join and contribute. See my previous post. I’ve been working it on in the past several months, and collaborated with some WikiProject organizers to make it better. We also wrote a Signpost article to introduce it to the entire Wikipedia community.

Right now, we are ready to make it available to more WikiProjects that need it. If you are interested in trying out our tool, feel free to sign up. Bobo.03 (talk) 19:24, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.

Background

On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:26, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Merge Proposal needs input

Need additional insight and comments to the ongoing debate re: merging North Caucasian Huns into Huns. Proposer's rationale: North Caucasian Huns is a stub and only has one source I'd really consider reliable. I propose merging it to Huns. The vast majority of scholars believe that the North Caucasian Huns were descended from or closely related to Attila's Huns, including Denis Sinor, Peter Golden, Otto Maenchen-Helfen, and Jin Hyun Kim. There's no real reason to give them their own article. Additionally, the article currently falsely gives the impression that the North Caucasian Huns are the "Khunni" mentioned in Ptolemy.

A new newsletter directory is out!

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.

New Page Patrol needs experienced volunteers
  • New Page Patrol is currently struggling to keep up with the influx of new articles, including Asia related articles. We could use a few extra hands on deck if you think you can help.
  • Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; Wikipedia needs experienced users to perform this task and there are precious few with the appropriate skills. Even a couple reviews a day can make a huge difference.
  • If you would like to join the project and help out, please see the granting conditions and review our instructions page. You can apply for the user-right HERE. --John B123 (talk) 12:15, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

Mushkpuri Top Wiki Article

Can you please restrict that article from being constantly edited by some users or ask them about why they are doing this? They've been constantly changing the name of 'Mushkpuri' to 'Mukeshpuri' (without citing any source or a reference too)

I am afraid that I'll never be able to understand why they are doing that and would appreciate any help that I can get here.

See WP:CRITERIA for our article title policies. If you believe the article is at the wrong title, then you should start a requested move discussion on the talk page. You should most certainly not make spurious reports at WP:AIV, since making unfounded accusations of vandalism towards other editors is a personal attack.

Use of Flag in Infobox (Afghanistan)

As the use of flags in the infobox seems to be causing some disagreement on this talk page I think it would be useful to reach a consensus specifically on this issue.

Option A Continue using the flag of the Taliban

Option B Return to the tricolour of the deposed republic

Option C Use both

Option D Use neither

Note: This discussion has been going on for a while but now seems to be roughly half and half split between those supporting option A and those suggesting another option so additional comments would be helpful.
