WP Mountains in the Signpost[edit]

The WikiProject Report would like to focus on WikiProject Mountains for a Signpost article. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? If so, here are the questions for the interview. Just add your response below each question and feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Multiple editors will have an opportunity to respond to the interview questions, so be sure to sign your answers. If you know anyone else who would like to participate in the interview, please share this with them. Have a great day. –Mabeenot (talk) 19:38, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

  • The questions are available here in the page history. An un-mentioned 4 day response window is just too short for some of us (or at least me) in the project. RedWolf (talk) 16:48, 10 August 2014 (UTC)


I just created stub Raíces, Mexico State since the es.wp article claims it is the second-highest populated settlement (570 inhabitants) in Mexico, the first highest being a redlink (population 2 men and a goat?). Cannot find any source on the redlink settlement. In ictu oculi (talk) 11:05, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

There's a pdf in spanish used as a ref on es: here with a table of highest places in the introduction. I'll look what else I can find. JMiall 16:29, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
The best sources I've found so far are this for info & this for pictures. JMiall 17:12, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, if Acatipa really is (a) populated which it is "The over all population of Acatipa is 674 persons", and (b) higher than Raíces, which it is "The locations medium height over sea level is 4600 meters" then it deserves mention in the Xochiatipan article. [done using source above, thanks]. Both these Mexican settlements are higher than Alma, Colorado, but are there populated places in Canada or Alaska higher still? Given latitude seems unlikely, which makes Acatipa highest-altitude populated settlement in North America? In ictu oculi (talk) 23:07, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

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)

Black Hills of California[edit]

should the articles for Black Hills (San Bernardino County) and Black Hills (Kern County) be merged? Are they one range of hills that spans 2 counties or actually 2 separate ranges with the same name? JMiall 21:33, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
