Manchukuo discussion[edit]

Here's a notice from Benlisquare about a topic which may interest people here:

It's currently being disputed whether Manchukuo was a puppet state or not. At the moment, I'm trying to compile a list of books and academic papers that refer to Manchukuo as a "puppet state". If anyone would like to help with expanding the list, please add a few more sources to the list at Talk:Manchukuo#NPOV "puppet state". Thanks. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 02:35, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

"Draft" rating[edit]

I suggest that this wikiproject implement the new "Draft"-class and categorize into Category: Draft-Class WikiProject East Asia articles‎, for pages in the WP:Drafts namespace that was recently initiated. This would allow tracking of articles related to this wikiproject that are in draft form, which members of this wikiproject may wish to improve and move into the mainspace. -- (talk) 23:40, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

I personally don't see the point. We don't categorize userspace drafts, why should draft pages in the new namespace be treated any differently. If it's not ready to be shown to the general public, there's no reason to for a WikiProject to pay attention to it. Sven Manguard Wha? 03:26, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
While userspacedrafts are personal pages, the new draft space is supposed to be a joint collaboration area. The advantage in categorizing them for the project is for people who come here to find topics they might be interested in, that someone else has already started working on, for which they might also have wanted to start an article on. As it isn't ready for public consumption, we can also choose to move unready articles out of mainspace and into drafts until they are more ready. Having a tagged draft also allows us to merge information found in a draft to a different article found in mainspace, should duplication occur, and we'd have an area to check for such duplication, as they've been tagged. -- (talk) 07:05, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Ryūkyū[edit]

Hello, last week I started editing and adding Wikipedia articles related to the Ryūkyū Islands, the Ryūkyū Kingdom, and Okinawa Prefecture, and I noticed many red links, stubs, and needed improvement in general. I also noticed this on Japanese Wikipedia. So I started to compile a To Do List and created WikiProject Ryūkyū. Because I was on my own and comepletely inexperienced, it was deleted and turned into a redirect for WikiProject Japan. I started a discussion on their talk page, and they proposed that I should ask for help from WikiProject East Asia. I want to form a WikiProject that covers anything having to do with the Ryūkyū archipelago to better organize and improve related articles. I would really appreciate any help I can get. ミーラー強斗武 (talk) 19:02, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet for Wikiproject East Asia at Wikimania 2014[edit]

Project Leaflet WikiProject Medicine back and front v1.png

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

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)
