Unreferenced living people articles bot edit

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Nicaragua/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Nicaragua/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:24, 28 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Authentic Costeño Autonomy Movement edit

Hello, my friends: A group of us are working on clearing the backlog at The article in the above header has been without sources for the past four years and may be removed if none are added. I wonder if you can help do so. Sincerely, and all the best to you, GeorgeLouis (talk) 07:18, 16 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Languages in censuses and Race and ethnicity in censuses edit

Pleas add information about this country to this articles.--Kaiyr (talk) 05:43, 30 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

English settlement in Nicaragua edit

Contributors to this WikiProject are invited to comment at Talk:English settlement in Nicaragua about the nature and purpose of that article. I cannot determine what the article's purpose is, and whether it might be merged or redirected to Mosquito Coast. Cnilep (talk) 00:25, 15 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Expert attention edit

This is a notice about Category:Nicaragua articles needing expert attention, which might be of interest to your WikiProject. It will take a while before the category is populated. Iceblock (talk) 19:53, 23 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiProject Nicaragua template edit

I've created a dedicated banner template for WikiProject Nicaragua ({{WikiProject Nicaragua}}) and proposed deprecating the use of the Nicaragua task force parameter in the {{WikiProject Central America}} template. This should better align WikiProject Nicaragua with the WikiProject guidelines. It will also give the project more flexibility and autonomy, for example, allowing WikiProject Nicaragua to have its own task forces if desired. If you have any thoughts about this change, please join the discussion at Template talk:WikiProject Central America. Kaldari (talk) 03:25, 8 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to edit edit

Hi, I invite you to edit and expand this article United States involvement in regime change in Latin America that would certainly benefit from more editors. Greetings. --Dereck Camacho (talk) 05:34, 19 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject edit

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 edit

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   07:50, 30 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RfC on election/referendum naming format edit

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

Request for information on WP1.0 web tool edit

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! 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)Reply[reply]

Good source of images edit

Just in case anyone is watching this talk page:
Confidencial has licensed most (maybe all?) of their content on YouTube for reuse with attribution, so if you need an image, you can screenshot a still from one of their many interviews with notable figures, and then upload it to the Commons. I’ve illustrated four entries this way just this afternoon!
If you need help with this, ping me—if you can identify the video you want a screenshot from, I’m happy to do the rest. One cautionary note: the license only applies to content they created; photographs or video clips they are reusing from a different creator are not covered by their license. So I only feel comfortable taking a screenshot when it’s clearly their reporter and camera crew interviewing someone, even though I realize they probably also shot some of the live-action footage—it’s just too hard to be sure what’s what.

Here is the gallery at the Commons: just tag with the category “Media from Confidencial” to add to it! Innisfree987 (talk) 00:56, 12 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help IDing someone? edit

Is this Luis Carrión Cruz? 2008 image

This image from Flickr identifies the subject as Luis Carrión Cruz. It’s a good, clear image so I’d like to use it if we can (the alternative is a lower-quality screencap from a video). But this pic from 1979 and the one currently in the entry, from 2018, look far more alike (and are much more reliably sourced) than either looks like the Flickr foto (2008). Is the Flickr foto misidentified? Can anyone else point to fotos of him from around then to compare, by chance? Thank you! Innisfree987 (talk) 05:30, 29 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another identification question edit

Nicaraguan delegation visits The Netherlands, 1982

Anyone recognize either of the gentlemen on the far right? From left, it’s Nora Astorga, Dick Dolman, Sergio Ramírez, but then the photo file doesn’t identify the last two people. Any familiar faces? Innisfree987 (talk) 01:05, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User script to detect unreliable sources edit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.

Women in Green's 5th Edit-a-thon edit


Hello WikiProject Nicaragua:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!
