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.

Is this project still active? Sensesfail123 (talk) 02:59, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Sort of. There's very little activity at the actual project pages (like here), but there are a handful of active members who keep an eye on the major related articles. --IllaZilla (talk) 06:43, 28 October 2011 (UTC)


Can someone move the Templates and Participants section from the sidebar (right) to the main section (left)? The layout looks really strange now with the main section being narrow and the side taking more room than it needs. (I was just going to edit it myself but the code looks complicated.) — Jeraphine Gryphon (talk) 22:55, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Vital articles[edit]

There is a discussion occuring here regarding which music articles should be deemed vital to the Wikipedia project. Your input would be appreciated. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 21:50, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Project restart[edit]

Hi guys. I'm writing from Wikimania 2013 in Hong Kong, and I was wondering if it's possible to do a project restart, where we continue what we already have here, but we restart certain parts of the WikiProject (such as assessment, project coverage and the like) from scratch. While WikiProject Emo in its current form has done very good work in the past, the fact that it's moribund today should give us a chance to assess what's gone wrong, what should we do about it, and how we can go from here (or there).

MetalBrasil and I, both big post-hardcore fans, talked about how we can revive the project, and how the project can expand coverage of emo/core acts on Wikipedia (e.g. many Rise Records bands don't have articles). I wonder if there are still people who are interested in rebooting the project so we can get it back on track somehow, and ensure that it's sustainable in the long run.

Hopefully this will start a very meaningful discussion on the future of the project, and I hope we can work towards expanding content on Wikipedia related to emo/screamo/core/etc. soon. :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 02:59, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
