January 2010 update[edit]

I've begun the update by copying over last months, the process should be completed this weekend (Showcase pix already done by SS - tx). There will come a time when we run out of nominations for each category; so please vote for your favourite existing nomination; or make your own. In particular, we need a themed London related DYK - do please give consideration to adding your suggestions. Thanks Kbthompson (talk) 14:08, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

February 2010 update[edit]

A sort of 'west London' theme, this month. Largely complete, but quotes and DYK to do

Again, the showcase pix was already done by SS - tx. There will come a time when we run out of nominations for each category; so please vote for your favourite existing nomination; or make your own. In particular, we need a themed London related DYK - do please give consideration to adding your suggestions. Thanks Kbthompson (talk) 14:54, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Interwiki[edit]

I'm from the hebrew wikipedia but i saw that there's a failed interwiki to the indonesian wikipedia. ישרון (talk) 19:13, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out (the London Portal on id:wikipedia seems to have been deleted). I can't find (and thus can't remove) the interlanguage link though. It must be tucked away in one of the templates. Hopefully someone more savvy can locate and fix it. ---Sluzzelin talk 19:28, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
Found it and fixed it. Thanks again! ---Sluzzelin talk 19:36, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Needs updating![edit]

RIP Kbthompson (talk · contribs), but this portal needs serious updating. I'm not familiar with London or its topics, or I would do it myself. /ƒETCHCOMMS/ 21:22, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

My condolences to Kbthompson's family. Might it be an idea to revive this portal along the lines of other portals where showcase content is selected at random from a list, rather than rotated every month? There are enought featured articles and pictures to do with London for the "showcase" articles, pictures and biography all to be featured content; my suggestions are below.
