WP 1.0 bot announcement

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:51, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Sports Notability

There is discussion ongoing at Wikipedia_talk:BIO#RFC:_WP:Athlete_Professional_Clause_Needs_Improvement debating possible changes to the WP:ATHLETE notability guideline. As a result, some have suggested using WP:NSPORT as an eventual replacement for WP:ATHLETE. Editing has begun at WP:NSPORT, please participate to help refine the notability guideline for the sports covered by this wikiproject. —Joshua Scott (LiberalFascist) 03:40, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Saturday's Featured Article...

... is going to be Jesus College Boat Club (Oxford), to mark the last day of Eights Week. As we've got friends coming for the weekend, I'm unlikely to be able to keep an eye on the article on the day, so if a few extra people could add it to their watchlists and keep an eye out for sly vandalism or accidental errors, that'd be grand. The anti-vandalism patrol should be able to cope with the usual addition of rude words etc... This will be the first time that a rowing-related article has been selected as Today's Featured Article.

Halkett boat

The article Halkett boat was promoted to FA status by the editor who started it, and those who contributed heavily to it. It's an interesting article, but not especially encyclopedic.

According to the process of reassessing FA status, I'm leaving notification here, and inviting wider comment.[1] Regards, Piano non troppo (talk) 09:31, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
