disputed content tag on Western ApproachesEdit

I have put a disputed content tag on Western Approaches.
347 other articles link to this article, so it warrants attention.ThoughtIdRetired (talk) 08:39, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Geography/to do...Edit

The "to do" template-page hasn't been updated since 2014. I posted about this over on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Geography/to do at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Geography/to do#The to do list.... The template is no longer protected so I thought WikiProject Geography folks might want to update the template. Shearonink (talk) 23:55, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Talk:Groswater BayEdit

If anyone has their hands on some official documentation, the exact official provincial/Canadian/IHO definitions of Lake Melville, Hamilton Inlet, and Groswater Bay need to be added to their pages for greater clarity about what is subsumed by what. The unofficial sources are all over the place. — LlywelynII 19:05, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Small lakes proposalEdit

There are millions of lakes, often with the same names, and often with few or no sources that directly discuss the lake. But our readers may want to find out about them. This is to propose a two-part approach to the problem.

With this approach, even if there is not enough information for a full article on a lake we can at least show readers where it is and lead them to an article that says something about the environment of the lake. Comments? Aymatth2 (talk) 12:54, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

request for addition to Template:Infobox_CountryEdit

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 by....you! 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) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

"Categorization of craters" essay under discussion at WikiProject GeologyEdit

FYI since this is also related to geography... I wrote a user essay User:Ikluft/essay/Categorization of craters as a result of some recent CFD category deletion discussions. It collects best practices over the years to avoid recurring confusion among editors over ambiguous use of the word "crater" for impact, volcanic and explosion craters, as well as common errors categorizing sinkholes as craters. Another editor suggested WikiProject Geology was a good place for it. So a discussion is in progress at WikiProject Geology on moving it from my user space to an advice essay of that WikiProject, because such a move should be a result of discussion. If you're interested, please have a look and comment. Ikluft (talk) 22:52, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
