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.

Should we include Latin music festivals as part of our project?[edit]

Currently, the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Sacramento Film and Music Festival, and the SXSW are the only Latin music festivals that has a Wikipedia page. Other Latin music festivals includes the Chicago Latin Music Festival (hosted annually at the Petrillo Music Shell), The Uforia Music Festival, Seattle Latin American Music Festival, Soulfrito, The Latin Music Festival of Southern Maryland, Latin Urban Fest, DC Bachata Music Festival, City of Miramar Latin Music Festival, Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival, Heart O' Texas Fair & Rodeo, Cuero Turkeyfest, The Hola Festival, New York International Salsa Dance & Music Festival, Miami Salsa Congress, Pachanga Latino Musical Festival, NYC South American Music Festival, Latin Music Festival at Santa Anita Park, Festival Latino, and the Fiesta de la Flor (I'll take care of this one), and many more; I got tired of searching on Google lolz. So should we include these festivals dedicated to Latin music and culture to our project or do they fear better at WP:LATINOS? Best, jona(talk) 15:44, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

@AJona1992: Sorry for the late response, but if other music festivals such as country and rock are covered by their respective projects, then I don't see why the Latin music project can't cover Latin music festivals. Erick (talk) 18:11, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
I'll tag them to our Wikiproject. Best, jona(talk) 19:15, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Articles for creation?[edit]

So guys, I've been cycling through my music library, searching for bands and musicians that could potentially have an article here, and I decided to check this project's main page to see if there's any list of articles to be created. Our to-do list indeed says we should "Identify articles for creation", but where should we list them? Maybe we could built our own list of missing articles. And each time someone adds a missing topic, they should also provide a brief description of what the topic is about, so that potentially interested editors can search for articles they'd feel like creating. I will have a list of some names soon, I intend to create them someday, but of course I would be happy if someone did it first. And maybe there are more editors with similar lists that wouldn't mind other people working on them. Victão Lopes Fala! 04:02, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@Victor Lopes: Great idea! I was also just to begin discussion about the project's assessment page regarding the addition of quality scale and importance scale, something that the Hip hop and Albums projects have. I mean, we might list of songs that went #1 on the Hot Latin Songs in the US as well as #1 songs in Brazil and Spain. Then there's the recordings that have been inducted into the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame Award that should be created as well. Erick (talk) 06:10, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I agree, I started my list of articles that I believe should be created by importance to our scope back in March 2015. Best, jona(talk) 12:56, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Nice! Can we centralize all those potential articles somewhere? We could divide them in shorter lists (bands, musicians, albums, songs, etc.) At first, I will only look for bands and musicians. Victão Lopes Fala! 17:08, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I have completed my list, you can check it here: User:Victor Lopes#Currently working on. Links in bold are the ones referring to Latin artists. Victão Lopes Fala! 02:52, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Just had a look at the list and it's pretty good. The only ones who wouldn't be covered by the project are those who don't perform in Spanish or Portuguese but I imagine that's only a few. Do you know of any non-Latin artists that sing in Spanish or Portuguese that have been successful in the Latin market that the project could use? Erick (talk) 03:45, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
