DYK for Grand Theatre, Perth[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 17 October 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Grand Theatre, Perth, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the Grand Theatre was the first in Australia to be lit entirely by neon lights? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Grand Theatre, Perth. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Grand Theatre, Perth), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Well done for that!!! JarrahTree 01:31, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Good article! On the 10,000 series, only Oceania and Australia left to start. I suspect that 10,000 would be too much for Oceania. Would a 5000 Challenge for Oceania and 2500 for Australia feeding into it be reasonable? Let me know what you think, thanks. Or shall I just make it 10,000 anyway as a long term challenge?♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:25, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

New Challenge for Oceania and Australia[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Oceania/The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Australia/The 5000 Challenge are up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. The Australia challenge would feed into the wider region one and potentially New Zealand could have a smaller challenge too. The main goal is content improvement, tackling stale old stubs and important content and improving sourcing/making more consistent but new articles are also welcome if sourced. I understand that this is a big goal for regular editors, especially being summertime where you are, but if you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Oceania and Australia like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1700 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for the region but fuelled by a series of contests to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. The Africa contest scaled worldwide would naturally provide great benefits to Oceania countries, particularly Australia and attract new editors. I would like some support from existing editors here to get the Challenges off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile and potentially bring about hundreds of improvements in a few weeks through a contest! Cheers.♦ --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:12, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
