New portal[edit]

Since WikiProject Volcanoes has now been active for over a month, it seemed to be the right time to go ahead and create a portal about volcanoes and volcanology. This is just version 1.0 today, and content will surely be expanded in the future, along with hopefully regular updates to the selected article, picture, and igneous rock. Please feel free to make any comments or suggestions either here, or at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Volcanoes. Thanks. --Seattle Skier (See talk tierS) 02:35, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Good stuff! Well done. Eve 10:54, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Geologizing the Golan Heights[edit]

I made an attempt to add some organized geology and vulcanism to Golan Heights, please give it a technical look-see; it is a 'start-class' article for the portal. Regards, CasualObserver'48 (talk) 14:56, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Volcano news[edit]

Should there be a section of volcano news (recent activity and eruptions, new discoveries, etc.)? --The High Fin Sperm Whale (TalkContribs) 22:01, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

I dont know. We'll see. ResMar 20:34, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Well, Mount Nyamuragira just erupted again. I think we had better add something about it before it isn't news anymore! --The High Fin Sperm Whale (TalkContribs) 18:31, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
ResMar set up a news section a few days ago. I've added the latest Nyamuragira eruption to it. -- Avenue (talk) 00:03, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
yeah, it's mostly comeplete now, a portal peer review and a portal fc and I'll be darned if it doesn't pass. The news does need maintaining, however. The one thing I don't like with Portals is the ton of maintanance involved...ResMar 03:13, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
