The portal has had no content for this year. I will convert it to a random portal ASAP. -- Secisek (talk) 07:28, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Done. Once the calendar is filled in, I will nominate it for featured portal. -- Secisek (talk) 13:08, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

If we could fill in the calendars for selected saint days I think we could pass featured portal. We have almost 25 bios, 17x3 DYKS and a dozen pictures. ANy help importing saints from the different calendars would be welcome. -- Secisek (talk) 23:42, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

  • I can't believe how this was negelected ... can you restore the old archives? Philly jawn (talk) 18:02, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

The archive are all there. How we present them is the only question. The subpages were not deleted. -- Secisek (talk) 18:54, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Suggestions? Philly jawn (talk) 20:16, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
    • "sole tribulation" in Featured topics? Also, adding a few more "saints of the day" where possible might help balance the columns. I can maybe try to find a few more there, although choosing which to include might be a problem. Otherwise, it looks very good to me. Great work, again! John Carter (talk) 23:06, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Soul? April Fools day vandalism. Reverted. More saints of the day would be ggod. It is Anglican heavy right now, but only a specialist would probably notice that. I aske for additions above. I will nominate in a short time, if anyone wants to add anything, please do so. -- Secisek (talk) 18:45, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

One question. How many names do you want included? A look at April 3#Holidays and observances, for example, shows 3 names. The Orthodox church calendar would add a lot more. If you were to select just one, how would you do so? Quality first, then maybe choosing the most important at that quality level? John Carter (talk) 18:52, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't think we want to go over board.Jan and Feb both have 24 total. As good a number as any. I would go importance of quality. ANy help would be great! -- Secisek (talk) 21:51, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

If it helps, I've just uploaded 8 hi-res illustrations of Protestant martyrs. Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates/Kronheim's_Illustrations_to_Foxe's_Book_of_Martyrs is probably the easiest page to view them on. Shoemaker's Holiday (talk) 03:27, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Harriet Monsell[edit]

I hesitate writing here because the stream seems to have gone elsewhere. But I've just uploaded a proposed article about Harriet Monsell, who's on the Anglican calendar for March 26, but never had a wikipedia article before. I used the page creation wizard, which might not have been a great idea, both because of the backlog and because the only other time I used it, the assigned reviewer had no apparent background in history or saints. I'd like to get the article at least up, so others can edit it, but it may have silly errors because of my inexperience (turns out the last one had an unknown carriage return as the first character, which is a defect with my cut and paste methods, but hadn't been noticed nor corrected til I attended wikimania20120.

Your draft at User:Jweaver28/sandbox looks pretty good to me, but I am no kind of expert in reviewing articles. Why not click the "submit" link? -- John of Reading (talk) 05:35, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Discussion: add 'Catholic saints' Navbox template?[edit]

Greetings, while doing article assessments for WP Catholicism, I found the template {{Catholic saints}}. Rather than being bold on this visible portal, I'm wondering if it would be helpful to place this template at the bottom of this portal page? To me 'Catholic saints' it looks to be exactly on-topic, so my answer would be: Yes. Regards, JoeHebda (talk) 16:13, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
