The Core Contest—Wikipedia's most exciting contest—will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now. Cheers from the judges, Femke, Casliber, Aza24.

Standard maps to include in infoboxes Edit
There is a discussion at Talk:Russia#Removal of maps about the inclusion of several maps in the infobox. The discussion may evolve into an RfC encompassing all pages of countries. Your input in the discussion is appreciated. Regards, (talk) 02:35, 29 July 2023 (UTC)
There is a debate on the talk page as to the count. 21 are recognized internationally, while Russia claims (and de facto controls) 24. The argument is that therefore we should say there are 22, because that is the number in a source we have that counts Crimea but was evidently written before the Donbass republics were declared part of Russia, and we have to follow sources. IMO we should switch to current sources, but I'm not going to continue to edit-war over it. Personally I think we should list both 21 and 24, noting that 3 are internationally recognized as part of Ukraine, but that's just a suggestion. — kwami (talk) 20:12, 29 July 2023 (UTC)
Credibility bot Edit
As this is a highly active WikiProject, I would like to introduce you to Credibility bot. This is a bot that makes it easier to track source usage across articles through automated reports and alerts. We piloted this approach at Wikipedia:Vaccine safety and we want to offer it to any subject area or domain. We need your support to demonstrate demand for this toolkit. If you have a desire for this functionality, or would like to leave other feedback, please endorse the tool or comment at WP:CREDBOT. Thanks! Harej (talk) 17:37, 5 August 2023 (UTC)
Village pump proposal for renaming US townships Edit
From the proposal:
”I would propose mass-moving these township articles to a naming scheme that only names the township and state, and only disambiguating with the county when there are multiple townships in a state.”
One of your project's articles has been selected for improvement! Edit
If anyone is interested, this nature reserve, which also seems to house multiple sports venues is up for AfD. The original article didn't take into account the reserve and just focused on the stadium, With WP:GEONATURAL ignored, is at AfD. I've changed it a little, could do with input and improvement if anyone can help save it. Regards. Govvy (talk) 15:29, 20 September 2023 (UTC)
