Most sections of the portal do not appear to have been updated since 2011. Selected article and Selected picture are red links. There is only one image visible (under DYK). The New pages box is empty, except for a link to a bot-created list that has not updated since March 2011. News is automatically generated from WikiNews, but only the first item is reasonably current (December 2012). One of the categories is a red link. The lack of content in the Selected article and Selected picture boxes means that the columns do not balance. I left informal notifications at several related WikiProjects earlier in January, but have received no response.
I believe the portal thus fails under criteria 1b (aesthetically pleasing, no formatting issues, no red links), 1c (ergonomic), 1d (well-maintained), and 3 (images where appropriate). Espresso Addict (talk) 17:28, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it needs fixing and I don't have the time to do it. Sven ManguardWha? 23:18, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Delist. Insufficient interest. Needs suggested outlines, for example. Not there. I had thought there should be a section (in non-existent outline) that contained "literary criticism" for a genre (and works). I thought this was kind of basic. I asked about this and received no answer. BTW, I had placed such a criticism under "Science Fiction." It was erased! I had looked here for support, found none and asked. What good is the Project fulfilling if it can't answer a basic question nor recommend fundamental outlines
Having said that, most Projects have outdated outlines from five years ago. But at least they were there! Most Projects start out with heady goals and come to this. Kumioko was trying to address this fact with American geography Projects and rolling them up into one. There are just too many projects and too few people interested in working at this higher level stuff which gets little attention. Student7 (talk) 19:18, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
