I've just created a new portal for the Palatine Forest and intend to steadily add articles, many of which are still red links. Please feel free to help! Regards. --Bermicourt (talk) 13:11, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
The portal for Rhineland-Palatinate is now up and running, although there are still some tweaks needed. Can someone who knows how add the link to this article please. --Bermicourt (talk) 21:57, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
The Wikipedia Signpost in its current issue has conducted an interview with users Gerda Arendt, Kusma, and Agathoclea about the background to WikiProject Germany. Congratulations to you, and thank you for the insight you've provided in the talk. I think it's particularly interesting to everyone who is not that much into English Wikipedia and wants to learn more about the history of the project. Must read! ;) --Aschmidt (talk) 23:58, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for that, great work. Just curious, do you have a script to compare de-Wiki links and en-Wiki links or do you look "manually" for analogous links? GermanJoe (talk) 22:34, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
I do it manually. First I use MS Word and use "replace" to change common words and do an initial tidy up. Then I preview it on Wikipedia and go through all the red links on the English page, clicking their German Wiki equivalent and seeing if there's an English article. If there is I change the red link to point to it. I also spot any templates that aren't working and sort those out. Then I save the English Wiki version and continue to tidy up, mainly the subpages. Some portals are easier than others, though. Portal:East Frisia had images and articles of the month that rotated automatically every month - great idea but very complicated! --Bermicourt (talk) 13:59, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
It's kind of a late idea, but would it help to collect en-Wiki article links for German articles via Wikidata? Wikidata stores links to all language versions, so could offer information about any de-Wiki <-> en-Wiki equivalent articles (if a script writer would code such a tool ...). A tool to collect all Wikidata items from a given Wiki-page already exists. GermanJoe (talk) 15:23, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
I don't know. The Workshop page for Portal:Hesse is linked to a catscan tool that is supposed to collect data, although I think it's offline at the moment. If that worked properly it may be able to pull data from either Wikipedia if set up correctly. But unfortunately I'm just a translator, not a software technician or Wiki code expert. --Bermicourt (talk) 16:24, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
