WP 1.0 bot announcement

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:55, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

White Carpathians

I have a disagreement with the user Nmate on whether or not to keep the Hungarian name for the White Carpathians. which are located on the Czech - Slovak border http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:White_Carpathians. There isn't a Hungarian minority in the area where the White Carpathians are located. So I think the Hungarian name is not relevant.

PS I'm a beginner on wikipedia, so i'm sorry if posting this message here was not something good (Iaaasi (talk) 14:28, 8 February 2010 (UTC))

Unreferenced living people articles bot

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 Slovakia/Archive 4/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

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

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Slovakia/Archive 4/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.

Hello Demokratickid. Yes, this project seems to be inactive, but occasionally you can meet interested editors here on Wikipedia, mainly quarrelling over controversial topics with Hungarians. I'm trying to watch this and this page, and sometimes I edit Slovak related articles. However, I'm focusing mainly on the Czech Wikiproject.

Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons

The WikiProject Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons (UBLPs) aims to reduce the number of unreferenced biographical articles to under 30,000 by June 1, primarily by enabling WikiProjects to easily identify UBLP articles in their project's scope. There were over 52,000 unreferenced BLPs in January 2010 and this has been reduced to 32,665 as of May 16. A bot is now running daily to compile a list of all articles that are in both Category:All unreferenced BLPs and have been tagged by a WikiProject. Note that the bot does NOT place unreferenced tags or assign articles to projects - this has been done by others previously - it just compiles a list.

Your Project's list can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Slovakia/Unreferenced BLPs. As of May 17 you only have approximately 32 articles to be referenced. The list of all other WikiProject UBLPs can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Unreferenced Biographies of Living Persons/WikiProjects.

Your assistance in reviewing and referencing these articles is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please don't hestitate to ask either at WT:URBLP or at my talk page. Thanks, The-Pope (talk) 17:36, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Hi, there is a huge amount of work to be done here, I think it is important to have at least the most basic articles about Slovakia at a start-class level, starting with the Outline of Slovakia. I'm planning to create Political scandals of Slovakia, Taxation in Slovakia, Capital punishment in Slovakia and Banking in Slovakia in the future (we'll see if I actually get to it) but there are dozens of elementary articles that should be created (Wildlife of Slovakia, Court system of Slovakia, Military history of Slovakia and so on). Brutalhovno (talk) 11:07, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Agreed, there's a lot to do at this project, Outline of Slovakia is just a starting point :) --Vejvančický (talk | contribs) 11:44, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Bratislava FAR initiated

I have nominated Bratislava 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. Daniel Case (talk) 03:38, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Slovakia articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Slovakia articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

WikiProject cleanup listing

I have created together with Smallman12q a toolserver tool that shows a weekly-updated list of cleanup categories for WikiProjects, that can be used as a replacement for WolterBot and this WikiProject is among those that are already included (because it is a member of Category:WolterBot cleanup listing subscriptions). See the tool's wiki page, this project's listing in one big table or by categories and the index of WikiProjects. Svick (talk) 20:28, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

RFC ar Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (use English)

There has been a brewing issue at WP:RM over WP:HOCKEY recommendations and how they should be applied over WP:COMMONNAME and WP:UE. Basically the hockey recommendation is that Diacritics shall be applied to all player pages, where appropriate as for the languages of the nationalities of the players in question. This is in fact a mandate that does not allow consideration of any other policy on naming. I think we need to resolve the issue of which naming convention we use for ice hockey players. Is it the one for the names of everyone else based on existing policy and guidelines, or do we have a blanket exception for one project?

WikiWomen's History Month

Hi everyone. March is Women's History Month and I'm hoping a few folks here at WP:Slovakia will have interest in putting on events (on and off wiki) related to women's roles in Slovakia's history, society and culture. We've created an event page on English Wikipedia (please translate!) and I hope you'll find the inspiration to participate. These events can take place off wiki, like edit-a-thons, or on wiki, such as themes and translations. Please visit the page here: WikiWomen's History Month. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to seeing events take place! SarahStierch (talk) 21:54, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

HighBeam Research partnership

HighBeam Research [3] -- an online, pay-for-use search engine for newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias has agreed to give free, full-access, 1-year accounts for up to 1000 Wikipedia editors to use. HighBeam has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications, most of which are not available for free elsewhere on the internet. Aside from a free 7-day trial (credit card required), access to HighBeam would cost $30 per month or $200 per year for the first year and $300 for subsequent years, so this is a wonderful, free, no-strings-attached opportunity. To qualify, editors must have at least a 1 year-old account with 1000 edits. Please add your name to the WP:HighBeam/Applications account sign-up page if you are interested. --Vejvančický (talk | contribs) 14:55, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes it is, see Statutes of the Slovak Football Association [4], Chapter 13, No. 1, p. 10: Únia ligových klubov je riadiacim a samosprávnym orgánom na úseku profesionálneho futbalu. (Union of League Clubs is the governing and self-governing authority in the field of professional football [in Slovakia]). Union of League Clubs is an autonomous organization of football clubs with legal status and internal structure, it governs two highest football competitions (leagues) in Slovakia (see the official website of the Slovak Football Association).

Assessment Requests

Hi, I'm not a member of WikiProject Slovakia, but I am curious about editing 1-2 articles on Slovakia during World War II, even though I wasn't born and raised there, don't know if I have Slovak ancestry or not (and I'm too occupied to look into that for now), and hadn't really studied Slovakian history.

I saw that 2 articles on Slovakia during World War II (Slovakia during World War II and Slovak Republic (1939–1945)) were Start-class articles, and I thought about editing them and having them re-assessed for either B-class or C-class, but the WikiProject doesn't have a specific process for requesting assessments of articles related to Slovakia. I was just curious about that process, especially since I heard that the WikiProject may be inactive. Buspirtraz (talk) 10:07, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Let me clarify that statement. I do see the section on assessing Slovakia articles (Wikipedia:WikiProject Slovakia/Assessment), but it's more of a legend key on Quality and Importance. I don't see the part on how to actually submit them for assessment. Buspirtraz (talk) 10:31, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Yes, there is no specific process for requesting assessments of articles related to Slovakia, except for this very talk page, I guess. The page Wikipedia:WikiProject Slovakia/Assessment provides some elementary guidelines and criteria in case you want to assess the article yourself. In that case I would suggest that you also familiarize yourself a bit with the assessments of some articles of similar quality and importance to be able to gauge the levels. Otherwise, you can add an empty WikiProject Slovakia template to the talk page and wait for someone like me or more likely User:Demokratickid to assess it later. Brutalhovno (talk) 21:50, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Both pages that I've talked about editing have the WikiProject Slovakia template in their Talk pages, so that's out of the way. As for what you've said about me undertaking any assessments, you mean that I myself can actually assess any articles that I edit or start and not have to have another opinion? I thought that couldn't be done because of concerns about impartiality, and another reason why I also asked about the assessment process is so I can have another set of eyes to grade the article on quality. I can ask for a peer review but I have to gather up books and whatnot for research into the 2 articles I wanted to edit and to have assessed and get them fixed up before the peer review submission.

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live!

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Ice hockey players - article names

Hello. I am letting you know, that one user created hundreds of stubs about mostly Czech and Slovak ice hockey players and rendered their names without diacritics. I moved some of them to diacriticized names but the user reverted my moves. He still opposes diacritics in "his" articles, although as you know, they are used throughout Wikipedia. Also the rest articles on ice hockey players have names with diacritics. Even the WikiProject Ice Hockey allows them to be used. For affected articles, see e.g. Vladimir Buril, Kristian Kovac, Robert Pukalovic and Tibor Visnovsky. - Darwinek (talk) 10:23, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

It seems you're in the right here, that the pages for sake of accuracy should include diacritics. And, also, they are not necessarily his articles anyway this is Wikipedia where anyone can improve/edit. Demokratickid (talk) 10:51, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

The current Civil Aviation Authority (Slovakia) (CAA) was established by an act of the year 1998. There was a 1995 accident report of a plane in Slovakia that mentioned the "Civil Aviation Inspectorate" (ŠTÁTNA LETECKÁ INŠPEKCIA) - Did that become the CAA? Or is it a separate agency?

Merging articles

Does anyone know what is the naming convention for stadium names? Should Slovak name or english name be used? There are two articles, Zimný štadión Pavla Demitru and Pavol Demitra Ice Stadium about the same stadium. How should they be merged? stclaus (talk) 15:27, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

The articles in the Category:Indoor ice hockey venues in Slovakia are named both in Slovak and English. I don't think there's a naming convention for ice hockey arenas or stadiums. Zimný štadión Pavla Demitru seems to be more frequent name, according to Google. I would prefer using Pavol Demitra Ice Stadium here on English Wikipedia, but the safest and most transparent way would be probably WP:RM. Both the articles can be easily merged by deleting and WP:HISTMERGE. --Vejvančický (talk / contribs) 14:11, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

Occupation of Southern Slovakia

Hello!

I've just raised some issues on the talk page of the Occupation of Southern Slovakia article. I'd be happy if you could share your views and help to solve the issues. Thank you! – Thehoboclown (talk) 13:36, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Genealogical data

User:Slovakiaman has been adding information on the availability of genealogical data to hundreds of articles on Slovakian villages. For examples see: [5][6][7] Some of his more recent edits have been reverted by Bgwhite, while others remain. Is this kind of information considered appropriate? Personally I don't see how it increases our readers' understanding of the villages or how having half the articles talk about the availability of genealogical records instead of the villages isn't a violation of WP:UNDUE. Huon (talk) 22:32, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

My main issue is Slovakiaman has been adding things incorrectly causing several of us to fix every page Slovakiaman edits. About the genealogical data, I personally don't think it belongs in the article, not really sure how tells anything about the villages and it is not referenced. I can see how it could be of interest to people, but not enough of a reason to keep the info. Bgwhite (talk) 22:48, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Thousands of Slovakian cityscape and other images may be deleted from Commons

Please see discussion at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(miscellaneous)#Two_weeks_to_save_freedom_of_panorama_in_Europe. I think it is an item of major interest to the editors interested in this WikiProject. The (very underestimated) counts for how many images may be affected have been posted to commons:Commons_talk:Freedom_of_Panorama_2015#numbers. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:09, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Is Marko Vrzgula notable?

Since the creator deprodded this and claimed he is influential in Slovakia, as can be seen in the Slovakian language refs (which I can't read) I refer it here: is this person notable? Or should this be at AfD? If there are any replies here, please ping me. Thanks, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:03, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

AfD could use some input and research ASAP - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lucas Perny

Hi all, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Lucas Perny could use attention from editors familiar with his work and particularly who might be able to access the references being submitted and do some interpreting. As it is, some SPAs have popped up to nominate the article for deletion, and some have popped up to save it. However I don't think that any of the English Wikipedia regulars can tell whether the sources provided help the subject meet the general notability criteria or any of the other specific notability criteria. With no URLs in the refs at the AfD it's impossible to discern whether the sources are reliable and whether the coverage of him is significant, or just passing mentions. I don't know how active this WikiProject is, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 03:07, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Cannabis in Slovakia needs improvement

We have a new article Cannabis in Slovakia, but it could really use improvement and expansion, especially from anyone who can read Slovak sources.

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject

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

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   07:55, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Could use a native speaker to clean up content added at Cannabis in Slovakia?

Recently an IP popped in and added a couple paragraphs of what looks to be interesting content about drug law reform in Slovakia, with good wikilinks and apparently serious news sources. The problem is that the editor was an IP so I can't reliably get a hold of them to ask some questions about passages which are unclear due to their non-fluent English.

I would imagine that someone with moderate fluency in English and Slovak could clear the questions up in under 20 minutes; is anyone here interested in ironing out a few wrinkles so the section reads better? Thanks! Goonsquad LCpl Mulvaney (talk) 06:35, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format

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.

A new newsletter directory is out!

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
