Tools and design[edit]

Glad to see this project. I am involved in maintaining WP:POLAND and WP:SOCIOLOGY, and I've significantly redesigned their pages, and implemented numerous tools. See if you'd like me to copy something from them here. I'd particularly suggest enabling the Article Alerts, Most Popular, Copyediting and New Article feeds. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 15:46, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • It's good to have you on board, we could definitely use a more experienced editor, especially when setting up the project. Your recommended tools look promising. Also, missing biographies and B-class review seem like a good idea.--Pereant antiburchius (talk) 16:52, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

@ portal:transhumaism, personal development is not a technology. do someone wana change what the list is called or exclude it? skakEL 16:24, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Small bug in template or in section in name?[edit]

Go to a page like Talk:How_to_Create_a_Mind, in the WikiProject Transhumanism banner click on the words "importance scale". It tries to take you to:

  • Wikipedia:WikiProject_Transhumanism/Assessment#Importance_scale

But there is no section "Importance scale", instead the section is called "Importance assessment". So either the template or the section name has to be changed. I looked at the template and could not really figure out where the section name was in there. I would say just fix the landing page, but I didn't want to break something.

Duplicated places to ask for assessment[edit]

On Wikipedia:WikiProject Transhumanism there is a section "requesting an assessment" which says "place requests here". But on Wikipedia:WikiProject Transhumanism/Assessment there is also a section which says "requesting an assessment" with an invitation to list articles there. I propose one or the other be removed. Silas Ropac (talk) 14:18, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

I boldly took care of this. Made it like WikiProject Books, where the main points to the assessment page. Seems to make sense to have the list of articles to assess live on the assessment page. Silas Ropac (talk) 21:06, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Nayef Al-Rodhan Rewrite[edit]

The biography is copied verbatim from his website: sustainablehistory.com . Should be up for deletion, suggested whole rewrite. It's within your interests so I thought I'd let you know. I'll have a gander at it. amosabo t@lk; 09:52, 24 September 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)

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.

There is an RFC that may affect a page in this project[edit]

There is an RFC that may affect a page in this project at WikiProject Tree of Life. The topic is Confusion over taxonomy of subtribe Panina and taxon homininae (are chimps hominins)?

Please feel free to comment there. SPACKlick (talk) 17:06, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
