Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Request for input in discussion forum[edit]

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

Justin Trottier article[edit]

I've been trying to clean it up. Before it read like a press release and had lots of fluff, references to his own articles, unreliable sources, etc. It still needs trimming and expanding some areas. More help is needed. If anyone can have a look at it please. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 16:25, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

An apagnostic doesn't care[edit]

I just wanted to throw this out there. It seems to me that an actual apagnostic would not even create an article on the subject. Why would they if they don't care? I label my wife as an apagnostic, whereas I'm firmly athiest. I have a strong opinion on the subject of theism one way, she could care less. It is not important to her. It's not part of her daily life nor thought. In fact, she is obviously disinterested anytime I try to discuss my thoughts on religion to her. I gave her the label of apagnostic several years ago while we were still dating. She didn't have a label for herself and still doesn't because she just doesn't care. I think that is the idea behind apagnosticism. A Wikipedia article on the subject, in my opinion, would be very short. It would say something like, "An apagnostic is someone who doesn't adhere to any religious beliefs and doesn't care." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.177.227.67 (talk) 07:44, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
