More for The Doe Run Company edit

Hello! I'm an employee of The Doe Run Company and I'm here as a representative of the company, per my last message at this WikiProject. Continuing my work to update the company's Wikipedia article, I have saved an expanded and updated draft here, and posted an edit request on the article's talk page. My goals are to correct factual inaccuracies, source all content, and provide a more thorough overview of the company's operations, among others outlined in more detail in the edit request. Would someone from this page be able to give this a look over? TS at Doe Run (talk)

FAR for uranium edit

I have nominated Uranium for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the 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" in regards to the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Hog Farm Talk 18:35, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of mines in Russia edit

Today, I added WP Mining to List of mines in Russia Talk page. While working on orphan articles, at Category:Orphaned articles from July 2013 I found many of those mines are in Russia. At the Talk page here, I posted a section with many Russia mines, and asking for help to add those mines into the list. JoeNMLC (talk) 22:30, 16 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Possible duplicate articles edit

Today, while de-orphaning Russia mines, I found:

Wondering if these two Iron mines are same article? JoeNMLC (talk) 20:04, 22 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • ω Awaiting - today I added "Distinguish" to both these mines, updated stubs, added 1 cite. Asking for expert help please. JoeNMLC (talk) 19:17, 12 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessments edit

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Help requested on Commons edit

I recently added a bunch of images to Commons:Category:Shafer Museum, including quite a few that relate to mining. Not a topic I know much about, and no doubt someone knowledgeable could do a lot to improve descriptions and categorizations of these. - Jmabel | Talk 22:34, 11 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Uranium mining in the Bancroft area edit

Uranium mining in the Bancroft area needs probably one more source assessment at Featured Article Candidates. If anyone is willing to assess the article, it would be helpful.
