Wiki letter w.svg

Hello DJB3.14,

WikiProject Orphanage is holding a month long Backlog Elimination Drive to de-orphan articles which have orphan tags!
The goal is to eliminate the backlog of orphan articles. There are currently 135815 articles which have orphan tags. The drive is running from April 12, 2014 to May 12, 2014.

Awards will be given out for all editors participating in the drive in the form of barnstars at the end of the drive. To add your name in the participants list click here.
So start de-orphaning articles! Click here to see the list of articles need de-orphaning.

A barnstar for you![edit]

Kindness Barnstar Hires.png Barnstar for de-orphaning articles
Thank you for your efforts to de-orphan articles, Although we are unsuccessful to make a dent on the huge backlog, but your efforts to de-orphan articles are very much appreciated. Happy editing! -- From: Jim Carter onbehalf of WikiProject Orphanage through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:24, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks and explanation[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to WP. The orphan tag on Festival Flea Market Mall specified "few" as it has only one link. Thanks for adding the coords. Just wanted to point out the detail on the tag. Best. - - MrBill3 (talk) 15:02, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

deOrphaning script[edit]

Hello everyone! I was just working on responding to a couple bug reports for a script that I worked up as part of a request from this project, and I noticed that only a couple people (who weren't even on this mailing list) are actually using the script. A little history on the script: In March of 2014, Jim Cartar came to my user talk page and said he needed some help in acquiring a script for a backlog drive that he was working on that could keep track of and score deOrphanings for a scored backlog drive. I took that request to the project's talk page (BackLog Drive "DO" (De-Orphaning) script proposal) and there was near unanimous support for this. I thought about the proposal and decided the best way to do it was to build a new script (which is still no where near as comprehensive as Manishearth's OrphanTabs) and build into it a mechanism that will make BLD scoring easy.

What I'm wondering at this point is, since there appears to be only two people using the script, should I continue to develop this script with a goal of using it for scoring BLDs or just debug the existing script and leave it at that. Thanks for any replies or comments.

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself from the mailing list or alternatively to opt-out of all massmessage mailings, you may add Category:Opted-out of message delivery to your user talk page.

Thanks for your edit. In 30 years, I never realized a Jeopardy! contestant who had already won before could win $2000 for finishing second in his or her first defeat.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:41, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
