US Collaboration reactivated & Portal:United States starting next[edit]

Casliber recently posted a suggestion on the talk page for WikiProject United States about getting the US Wikipedians Collaboration page going again in an effort to build up articles for GA through FA class. See Wikipedia:U.S. Wikipedians' notice board/USCOTM. After several days of work from him the page is up and ready for action. A few candidates have already been added for you to vote on or you can submit one using the directions provided. If you are looking for inspiration here is a link to the most commonly viewed articles currently under the scope of Wikiproject United States. There are tons of good articles in the various US related projects as well so feel free to submit any article relating to US topics (not just those under the scope of WPUS). This noticeboard is intended for ‘’’All’’’ editors working on US subjects, not just those under WPUS.

The next item I intend to start updating is Portal:United States if anyone is interested in helping. Again this is not specific to WPUS and any help would be greatly appreciated to maximize visibility of US topics. The foundation has already been established its just a matter of updating the content with some new images, biographies and articles. Please let leave a comment on the Portals talk page or let me know if you have any questions or ideas. --Kumioko (talk) 19:29, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Florida Chapter? Tampa Bay chapter?[edit]

Do we have enough active wikipedians in Florida to form a chapter? I've created an entry for Florida at the Wikimedia United States Chapters Council page. If a state-wide chapter will be too unwieldy, perhaps chapters based on the larger cities could be formed (i.e., South Florida, central Florida, northern Florida). -- Donald Albury 21:05, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there hasn't been nearly enough Tampa Bay-based editor activity lately (or over the past couple of years) to justify a local chapter, imo. A state-wide chapter seems more likely. Zeng8r (talk) 21:35, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
I was afraid of that, but had to ask. Let's see if a state-wide chapter gets any traction. -- Donald Albury 02:43, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion to add WikiProjects Florida and Tampa Bay to the supported projects list of WikiProject United States[edit]

It has been suggested that this project and its parent project of WikiProject Florida may be inactive or semi active and it might be beneficial to add them to the supported projects list of WikiProject United States. After reviewing the project page and the talk page it seems as though there have not been many edits to the main page or any discussions in several months. Before taking any action though I would like to hear from the members of the project to get their comments. --Kumioko (talk) 00:00, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Since theres been no comment on this discussion in 11 days I am going to go ahead and add it to the supported projects list of WPUS. --Kumioko (talk) 14:11, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

New articles[edit]

I started some articles recently and assistance is most welcome in correcting my errors and improving the content. Candleabracadabra (talk) 20:26, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Archived some threads[edit]

I've archived some inactive threads to subsections which were notifications about discussions that have since been closed. — Cirt (talk) 17:40, 31 January 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) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
