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)

Old maps and views of parts of Italy[edit]

As you might have seen in the Signpost last week, there's currently a drive to go through the million 19th century images released by the British Library last year, and identify all the maps, with a view to their being georeferenced by BL volunteers, and then uploaded to Commons early next year. After the first week, over eight thousand new maps have been identified, with 40% of the target books looked at -- see the status page for the latest figures, and more information.

A part that may specifically interest this project is the page

c:Commons:British Library/Mechanical Curator collection/Synoptic index/Italy

and also the page

c:Commons:British_Library/Mechanical_Curator_collection/Synoptic_index/to_do/Italy

which currently respectively show 102 and 291 pink templated links for Flickr book pages still to be looked at for untagged maps. (Though there are lots of other parts of the world still to be looked through as well).

Any help looking through these would be very much appreciated -- as well as the maps (and ground plans) for tagging, you may well also find other interesting or useful non-map views that may be worth considering or uploading for articles on parts of Italy and elsewhere . (If uploading, please use the ingestion template described here, which sets up some appropriate image templates and categories).

Request[edit]

I need to ask for somebody associated with this project to take a look at Amphitheatre of Libarna. The problem is that the text of the article describes it as being in Liguria, but the location map is pushpinning it not in Liguria or even anywhere else in Italy, but all the way down in Tunisia instead. Obviously the pushpin coordinates are probably wrong, but I have no idea how or where to find out what the right ones are — so could somebody with more expertise in Italian topics take a look at this? Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 00:51, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 01:34, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Pasubio[edit]

Dear Italy experts: This old AfC submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. Is this a notable topic, and are there references about it that are not in English? Or is this the same topic as Cima Palon, and should the two pages be merged? —Anne Delong (talk) 00:43, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Yves Bolè[edit]

A new article. Doesn't seem notable. Is he big in Italy? Italian sources? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 11:01, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Never mind. Deleted. See also Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Yves Bolè. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:45, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Feedback for an FAC[edit]

Hi all,

The 1987 Giro d'Italia article is currently at FAC. In order for the article to pass and become a featured article, it needs to pass section 1c of the criteria for featured articles, requiring that "it is well-researched: it is a thorough and representative survey of the relevant literature. Claims are verifiable against high-quality reliable sources and are supported by inline citations where appropriate". If anyone could drop by the review and evaluate the Italian language sources for reliability, it would be greatly appreciated.
