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.

Expanding and revising the article on Human trafficking in Finland[edit]

Hello! My name is Anniina and I am currently an undergraduate at Rice University. I am in a Poverty, Justice and Human Capabilities class, and for an assignment for that class I am going to start revising and expanding the article on Human trafficking in Finland. I am planning on building a whole new structure of sections and subsections, redistributing the existing information into these new sections as well as adding new information. The victims and the help the victims receive are also going to have their own sections. I would like to include a more comprehensive section on the prevention of human trafficking in Finland; what kinds of organizations there are, how the public health sector contributes and what challenges there are for the preventing work that takes place. I will also find more sources and work on improving the citations of the existing article. In addition, I want to talk about the specific laws in Finland that deal with human trafficking. Does anyone have an opinion on whether I should link the section to the Finnish law article, even though the article is basically nonexistent? My goal is to improve the article on Human Trafficking in Finland as much as I possibly can, and therefore I would gladly welcome any tips, ideas or advice anyone might have. Thank you!

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)

Finland's Status during world war two[edit]

Your opinion would be most welcome regarding a dispute on whether or not Finland should lumped together and listed as an Axis country rather than listed as a separate co-belligerent on the World War Two page. See the discussion here Talk:World_War_II#Anti-Finnish_biasXavierGreen (talk) 22:51, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

While input into the article's talk page would of course be very welcome, editors should also read the RfC at Talk:World War II#Request for comment: WWII infobox which recently closed with consensus to not list any individual countries in the infobox. Nick-D (talk) 23:43, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
