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)

Help required[edit]

I would like help improving this article, if anyone can spare the time.
Thank you. :-) --

Siyyid Kazim picture[edit]

I just want to say that the picture you have in the article Siyyid Kazim seems to be one from the Bab, and please, remove it if you aren't sure it is from Siyyid Kazim. We all know wikipedia wants to have verifiable content, have Wikipedia verify that picture? We really don't want Baha'is seeing Bab's picture when they want to learn more about Siyyid Kazim's life, (is enough avoiding searching for the Bab in Wikipedia to don't see the picture). As an individual I ask Wikipedia to give me information I can trust on.

Arabic original of Live like Ali, die like Hussein?[edit]

I've seen this phrase used in English amongst Shia (and made a small stub mentioning in), but I'm having trouble finding how it's originally phrased/spelled in Arabic. Any ideas? Not just the literal translation, but the saying itself before it was translated to English. Thanks! MatthewVanitas (talk)

Request for GA review[edit]

Hi, can anyone please review my GA nominee Jama Masjid, Delhi. I would be very pleased if any interested user does so. RRD13 দেবজ্যোতি (talk) 10:40, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Rape jihad[edit]

This article could use some more eyes or some assistance at its talk page for how to edit it in the future. The article has been the subject of many different forums as of late on Wikipedia and is currently locked from being edited for the time being. Guy1890 (talk) 02:40, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

It took 5 AfDs but this article was finally deleted and salted so it won't be recreated again. Liz Read! Talk! 23:19, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

A draft at AFC needs help from topic specialists[edit]

Please help to review Draft:Ziyarat Ashura. If you are not familiar with the AFC review system you are welcome to post comments about the acceptability of the draft on its Talk page. Thanks Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 15:41, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Please see the discussion at WP:Articles for deletion/The Myth of Islamic Tolerance (3rd nomination). Should the article The Myth of Islamic Tolerance be deleted, as I believe the article fails to meet any of the criteria at WP:NBOOK. As of yet, no editor has indicated how it meets WP:NBOOK, however consensus cannot be reached AusLondonder (talk) 15:33, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
