Lakes crossing regional borders - discussion and examples for main pageEdit
Please add cases we should highlight as an example on the main page. Name the case or issue and suggest resolution.
Adding Image Maintenance Categories for Infobox Body of WaterEdit
See my proposal for tracking the image, image_bathymetry, and pushpin map images in maintenance categories on the Infobox Body of Water Talk page. Leave a comment with your thoughts or if other maintenance categories should be added as well. Wolfgang8741 says: If not you, then who? (talk) 06:57, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
Nothing on circulation in lakes?Edit
Several members of WikiProject Limnology and Oceanography are involved in a Wikimedia grant aimed at connecting students, educators, and content experts to generate quality aquatic information. Several students are generating new lake articles or improving existing lake articles and it would be great to have some WP Lake wikipedians review some of the content before it goes live. If you're interested in reviewing, please add your username here.
The South Aral Sea existed for a quarter century before splitting into two, shouldn't the East Aral Sea and West Aral Sea receive articles? The various developments with these two basins should be better defined with separate articles, instead of muddling it with the quarter century history of the larger lake. -- 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:33, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
I have nominated Chew Valley Lake 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. Hog Farm Bacon 02:11, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
A place to help you organise your work
I've been working on a tool for the past few months that you may find useful. Wikipedia:Sandbox organiser is a set of tools to help you better organise your draft articles and other pages in your userspace. It also includes areas to keep your to do lists, bookmarks, list of tools. You can customise your sandbox organiser to add new features and sections. Once created you can access it simply by clicking the sandbox link at the top of the page. You can create and then customise your own sandbox organiser just by clicking the button on the page. All ideas for improvements and other versions would be really appreciated.
Huge thanks to PrimeHunter and NavinoEvans for their work on the technical parts, without them it wouldn't have happened.
Requesting some inputsEdit
Requesting your visit to article Black Sea and inputs on splitting and restructuring @ Talk:Black Sea#Some article restructuring and overhaul
- Also please do have a look at Talk:Black Sea#Coastal cities, requesting help; and help expand Black Sea#Coastal and port cities on Black Sea coast and trade.
- And also requesting to visit Draft:Avret Esir Pazarları, an article is about Ottoman times female slavery with a special focus on the state of non-elite common women slavery in those times; presently looking for more specific inputs and expansion regarding female slave trade across Black Sea coastal cities and help expand the same if you find yourself interested in that topic too.
Thanks and warm regards
Abraham Lake, Alberta CanadaEdit
Hi all! I was actually watching a video the other day about dangerous bodies of water and stumbled across this peculiar [man-made lake]. I was wondering if anyone who has gone here before would like to contribute some more information regarding their experiences visiting this place. I personally want to check it out sometime as well :)
