Let's do that. No one is going to oppose that, so we can just go ahead and do it.

Oh, and please try to add the template:{{pghproj}} to the talk pages of Pittsburgh articles when you find them. Thanks. --Chris Griswold () 20:10, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

Did you mean the merging of the Primanti's article, or of the Hill district regions (because I also recommended merging those)? I think merging the Homewood sections would also be a good idea. This would the list of neighborhoods just as detailed, but the links would redirect to the broader neighborhood (i.e. Homewood, the Hill, Oakland [which is already done], etc.). Again, though, I don't know how to format those pages together. Carboneyes 20:37, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
I meant the Hill District. I did the Primanti's already. --Chris Griswold () 21:08, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Great work on the merge. --Chris Griswold () 08:48, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Behind Enemy Lines (band)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Behind Enemy Lines (band), requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable (see the guidelines for notability here). If you can indicate why the subject of this article is notable, you may contest the tagging. To do this, please add {{hangon}} on the top of the page and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself.

Please read the criteria for speedy deletion (specifically, articles #7) and our general biography criteria. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Bubba hotep 21:10, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

I've taken the tag off and put an Encyclopaedia Metallum external verification link on it. Needs to assert notabilty - preferably with the discography before someone else tags it again!! Bubba hotep 21:15, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

History of Pittsburgh - request for collaboration[edit]

I've put a lot of additional work into this article, based on feedback from when it was a Featured Article Candidate. Also updated the maps to give them a more standard appearance. I'm going to submit the article for peer review and then FAC again. Before I do, though, I need some help from the WikiProject Pittsburgh. Please take some time and help with these tasks:

  1. improve the article with changes, additions and deletions
  2. some stern proof-reading, please
  3. give it a quality/importance rating at Talk:History of Pittsburgh
  4. leave feedback at Talk:History of Pittsburgh

Thanks. I'll be leaving this note at the talk pages of the project members who have been most active in Pittsburgh-related articles. Tomcool 14:45, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Pittsburgh event for Wikipedia's tenth anniversary[edit]

Hi! Since you're a member of WikiProject Pittsburgh, I wanted to invite you to the Wikipedia Tenth Anniversary celebrations we're having in Pittsburgh on Saturday, January 15. During the daytime, we're going to be having a photo contribution drive where anyone can bring in their digital photos or prints and Wikipedians will teach people how to upload them and add them to articles, and maybe introduction to Wikipedia workshops as well. Then in the evening, we'll have fun at the Carson City Saloon. There will be free Wikipedia t-shirts and other goodies, as well. See the Pittsburgh meetup page for more details. I hope to see you there!--ragesoss (talk) 14:37, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh activity[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh is rolling out some new features (see our discussion at WT:PITTSBURGH). We are also trying to determine how many members are active. If you could go to Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh/Members and move your name from inactive to the active or semi-active group (depending on your interest in Pittsburgh issue and overall activity) groups, this would be great. Hopefully in a near future you'll also receive our first newsletter with various information on what we have been doing, and what useful tools are available. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:57, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
