Two month virtual editathon on Women in SportsEdit

WikiProject Women in Red is devoting the next two months (July and August) to a virtual editathon on Women in Sports. Please take this opportunity to write more articles about women swimmers who lag far behind men on Wikipedia.--Ipigott (talk) 07:29, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Request for information on WP1.0 web toolEdit

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) 04:25, 27 October 2019 (UTC)


Hey all, I hope everyone is safe and healthy. My name is HickoryOughtShirt?4 and I'm a member of WikiProject Ice Hockey. I was wondering if there was any interest in starting a WikiProject Sports channel on Discord? There's quite a few of us who are interested in sports, and I think it would be a good idea to help the WikiProject recruit more members. You guys can join us through here.HickoryOughtShirt?4 (talk) 00:01, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Categories for female swimmersEdit

I wanted to know if anybody is working on categorising female swimmers i.e. female backstroke swimmers, female breaststroke swimmers, female freestyle swimmers and female medley swimmers, into individual country categories e.g. Australian backstroke swimmers because I've noticed that there are only two categories which are American and Canadian. If there is someone who is doing this then I am more than happy to help and vice versa as there are a lot of swimmers under those categories.

Also, I was thinking of categorising the Paralympic swimmers too e.g. Paralympic backstroke swimmers, Paralympic breaststroke swimmers, Paralympic freestyle swimmers and Paralympic medley swimmers. I don't want to go into too much detail for classifying them into their sport categories as it could be quite complicating especially if the swimmer competes in two different classes or has changed sport classes.

Hello again, I've made a head start on categorising female swimmers - if anybody has time to put swimmers into the categories then that would be great as there are lots of female swimmers to put into the corresponding categories. SarahTHunter (talk) 16:09, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Artem LobuzovEdit

Hi all, just a head's up. I've tried to fix Artem Lobuzov, but it will need a more thorough update. Red Fiona (talk) 23:52, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
