Requests for Admin assistanceEdit

In the previous discussions in 2019 it was understood that the exclusion of subpages must be by MfD. I believe that this section "Requests for Admin assistance " should be removed from this talk page.Guilherme Burn (talk) 12:02, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Do you have a link to that consensus? My view is that it's legitimate to request assistance for technical changes, such as when replacing Portal:Foo/Articles/1 to /99 by a template in Portal:Foo which produces similar excerpts, but not as part of demolishing a portal (for example, after quietly replacing its main page by a redirect to a broader portal). Certes (talk) 13:11, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
I don't have the link, I can search for discussions, but this is unnecessary. @Certes: you are a witness, like me, of the thousands of excluded subpages that were restored. I think it is better not to repeat the same mistake again, or we exclude via MfD or leave them in limbo for a while.(Or we propose a new criterion for speed deletions)Guilherme Burn (talk) 14:01, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Bug collectionEdit

This section is only for tracking bugs and feature requests, in the MediaWiki software itself, which affect portals. For general technical help with portals or portal-related templates, create a new section on this talk page.

  Do not report new bugs or feature requests in this section – only list them here after a Phabricator task has been created.
  • T196722: Gallery slideshow controls take up more than one line on narrow displays
  • T196723: Gallery slideshow flickers when changing images
  • T194887: Mode slideshow of gallery tag is not working in phone screens
  • T199126: Scribunto/Lua should have a built-in method for retrieving category members

Request to create Portal:SaxonyEdit

We've had a request at Portal talk:Germany to create a portal for Saxony. In fact, there was once a Portal:Saxony but it got trashed in 2019 during the mass deletion campaign. However, it was 'rescued' and moved to project space at Wikipedia:WikiProject Germany/Portal:Saxony along with the other state portals that didn't survive the cull. Is it now acceptable to restore those German state portals that aren't yet in mainspace and, if so, would this one be suitable if we could bring it up to date? Bermicourt (talk) 06:40, 26 October 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the ping. I have replied in that discussion. OhanaUnitedTalk page 17:46, 26 October 2022 (UTC)
Portal:Saxony is now up and running and I've encouraged Germany editors to use it to track and update Saxony articles. It would be useful if we could incorporate bots that give automatic readouts on the number of Saxony articles, the newest articles and those with issues. German Wiki uses bots like "User:MerlBot/InAction", but I can't find its equivalent. Bermicourt (talk) 13:09, 28 October 2022 (UTC)

Antigua and BarbudaEdit

What's the best way forward for Portal:Antigua and Barbuda? It has potential and a willing maintainer (ping: CROIX) but isn't quite ready for the big time yet. Certes (talk) 14:45, 3 January 2023 (UTC)
