Page move of Barry Lyndon article[edit]

A user has moved the article from Barry Lyndon to Barry Lyndon (film), and now the former page is a disambig page. A discussion has been started on the article's talk page to request it be moved back to how it was. Your thoughts would be welcomed. Thanks! Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 20:21, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Peer review for Remember Last Night? now open[edit]

The peer review for Remember Last Night? is now open; all editors are invited to participate, and any input there would be appreciated! Thanks! Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 21:27, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Dispute at Talk:Casablanca (film) needs more input[edit]

I believe it would be useful to have more opinions on Talk:Casablanca (film) on the general question of what constitutes WP:UNDUE in terms of criticism of a film, and the specific question of whether Umberto Eco's criticism of Casablanca should be included in the article, and to what extent.

Please see Criticism by Umberto Eco for the discussion so far. The original state of the article is represented by the "Critical reception" section this revision of this revision. This is being rejected as a cut-and-dried violation WP:UNDUE. Ed Fitzgerald t / c 23:24, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

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.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Thanks. — Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 08:47, 15 March, 2009 (UTC)

Hello, fellow film fans![edit]

This is to ask for your input on Balalaika, MGM 1939. Though I'm a good editor/copy writer and have been working on it since August (09), this is my first major research project of any description, anywhere. User talk:Nehrams2020 has been kind enough to help me, and I'm hoping you will look the article over; I would really appreciate your comments and suggestions, especially additional free sources of information/photos, to round it off nicely. Thank you, Shir-El too 15:48, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded.

Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 02:32, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Adding "Popular pages" to U.S.-related projects[edit]

A very interesting tool of the Wikimedia Toolserver is called WikiProject Popular pages lists. These lists are similar to project-related article lists like U. S. article lists used for generating assessment statistics. The Popular pages lists include the rank, total views, average daily views, quality and importance ratings for the listed articles. Here is the full list of projects using popular pages lists. An FAQ also is available at User:Mr.Z-man/Popular pages FAQ.

I recently added links to lists of popular pages as shown below to the U.S. Portal - WikiProjects box and the nominations sections for each of the selected articles boxes.


Portal:United States/Projects/Popular pages


Because this project was not included, I am bringing up the popular pages tool here. This tool makes it very easy to track three of four balancing dimensions when selecting articles for showcasing at a portal - quality, importance and popularity. When tracking the fourth dimension, topic, the related article lists tool (such as for U.S. article lists tool) also might be useful by filtering on categories of interest.

If you do decide to use this tool, feel free to update Portal:United States/Projects/Popular pages as well.

PLEASE READ - ANONYMOUS (STREET MEAT)[edit]

Someone keeps removing all relevant information and clarificationon Anonymous (Street Meat) -- why is this happening with such contentiousness? This project is being singled out while, for one examplme, the page for a short like "Saturday Night Live" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_Night_Special_(film) read like publicity pages and I'm told that with 3.7 million articles, it cannot be attended to. I don't understand. Is it because "Saturday Night Live" is made by a man? Please let me know. There are precious few message films made by women who are recognized by film festivals or the industry at large.

I think that "anonymous (street meat) is placed in peril, despite its notability. I have another film to shoot and don't have all the time in the world. I have a family and many personal responsibilities. SO IF THEY WANT TO DELETE THIS ONE, THEY WILL. They'll add "friendly" to their deletion as if that made it "friendly." That will be the end of it.

ANONYMOUS (STREET MEAT)[edit]

Dear friends:

The image of the eye was restored (gun image was not) -- all images are available in "anonymous (street meat)" Google images, please, take a look. https://mail.google.com/mail/?shva=1#inbox/132e812637a7fb8e

However, the file was truncated. Meanwhile, I was interviewed by someone from the Huffington Post yesterday. The interview centered on my inspiration for "anonymous (street meat)" -- a 2-year ordeal with Bank of America. With demonstrations and movements like "Occupy Wall Street" going on against Wall Street and the too-big-to-fail banks, the script for "anonymous (street meat)" was was a metaphor ahead of its time by having a plot that dealt with bank abuse with harrowing images. That's why the film has been well received at festivals abroad -- in Seoul Korea, for one, it was screened in over 14,000 monitors throughout the city. The HP article will link up to "anonymous (street meat)" and it is scheduled for publication on November 1st, or earlier. This sort of coverage is remarkable for a first film by a student while still a student (UCLA third year). "anonymous (street meat)" was finished, complete with sci-fi special effects, on January 21, 2011 - it had been presented before class at the UCLA Bridges Theater on December 8, 2010.

Whether one agrees with "anonymous (street meat)" or not ,and whether one even likes it, this is part of the news and the broader sociatal picture.

Thank you for your support in this endeavor --

Wikipedia:WikiProject National Register of Historic Places/Fall 2011 Photo Contest[edit]

WP:NRHP is having a Fall Photo Contest running from Oct. 21-Dec. 4, 2011. I'd like to encourage anybody who enjoys photography, and anybody who is interested in historic places to participate as a photographer, a sponsor, or both.

One way that an individual editor or a project can participate is to sponsor their own challenge. For example, somebody here might want to include a challenge such as "A barnstar will be awarded to the photographer who adds the most photos of previously non-illustrated NRHP sites of movie theaters to the NRHP county lists." To sponsor a challenge all you need to do is come up with an idea, post it on the contest page, and do the small bit of work needed to judge the winner(s).

Any and all contributions appreciated.

Proposal to add American cinema task force under WikiProject United States[edit]

Greetings, I am a member of WikiProject United States, it was recently suggested that the American cinema task force of WikiProject Film might be inactive or semi active and it might be beneficial to include a joint task force for it in the list of projects supported by WikiProject United States, which Kumioko have added some of the projects like WikiProject American television and WikiProject United States Government. After reviewing the project it appears that there have not been any active discussion on the talk page in some time and the only content updates appear to be simple maintenance so being supported by a larger project might be beneficial. This discussion is intended to start the process of determining if the project members are interested in the joint task force being added to the projects supported by WikiProject United States. If have any thoughts, comments or questions, please let me know. JJ98 (Talk / Contributions) 09:58, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Improving the Lists of American films[edit]

I think the lists like List of American films of 1910 should have a navigation box on the top-right corner, like the page 1910 in film has ( using a template like {{Year nav topic2}} ). And maybe another navigation box at the bottom of the page, like 1910 in film has.

Also, I think sections like 1910 in film#Films released in 1910 should have at the top a message like:

Women's History Month is in March[edit]

She-wikipedian.jpg

Hi everyone at WikiProject American cinema!

Women's history month is around the corner, in March, and we're planning the second WikiWomen's History Month.

This event, which is organized by volunteers from the WikiWomen's Collaborative, supports improving coverage about women's history during the month of March. Events take place both offline and online. We are encouraging WikiProjects to focus on women's history related to their subject for the month of March. Ideas include:

  • Improving coverage about American women filmmakers, directors, producers, and executives
  • Developing content about women owned film businesses

We hope you'll participate! You can list your your project focus here, and also help improve our to-do list. Thank you for all you do for Wikipedia! SarahStierch (talk) 20:39, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Importance ratings[edit]

Has this group decided to not give articles importance ratings? and if not, why are some rated by importance? i tried to find how Ronald Reagan is given a high importance rating (im not questioning the rating, only how someone managed to code it as that), and i cant find a banner that includes it in that importance category. there must be something i dont understand. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:49, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Mercurywoodrose. None of the task forces nor the Film project itself gives importance ratings. I'm not sure why not, but we don't. It's not even in our coding. Regarding Ronald Reagan, it appears that he does not even have a Film project banner. You may be referring to the parameter |cinema-importance= in {{WikiProject United States}}.

Discussion to remove the Automatically assessed logic from the WikiProject United States template[edit]

Greetings, there is a discussion regarding removal of the logic used to populate Automatically assessed article categories from Template:WikiProject United States. Most of the categories (over 220 Wikipedia wide) were deleted in February 2013 because they were empty. These categories were previously populated by a bot that hasn't run since 2011 and the categories aren't used. Removal of this uneeded/unused logic will greatly reduce the size and complexity of the WikiProject United States template. Any comments or questions are encouraged here. Kumioko (talk) 18:35, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Lest there is any confusion for people who don't speak the same language, the words "logic used to populate Automatically assessed article categories" refer to the feature that was supposed to allow this WikiProject's template to "inherit" class and importance ratings from other WikiProjects. Kumioko says that there are no longer any bots performing the function that formerly copied those ratings. --Orlady (talk) 22:55, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
