Portal report[edit]

The following portals are in need of attention/upkeep:

  • Portal:Kyrgyzstan - Newly created portal.
  • Portal:Trichy – Newly created portal.
  • Portal:Space – the selected article excerpts were copied and pasted between 2006 and 2009. The leads of the corresponding articles have greatly improved since then.
  • Portal:Thinking – "selected" sections need new material. Been the same for years.

The following portals have interesting design features that you may find useful:

  • Portal:Philosophy – cycles through 52 "Selected philosophers", one per week, automatically year after year.
  • Portal:Arts – uses random generators to display random featured status selections.
