Thank you very much[edit]

The RfC discussion to eliminate portals was closed May 12, with the statement "There exists a strong consensus against deleting or even deprecating portals at this time." This was made possible because you and others came to the rescue. Thank you for speaking up.

By the way, the current issue of the Signpost features an article with interviews about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

I'd also like to let you know that the Portals WikiProject is working hard to make sure your support of portals was not in vain. Toward that end, we have been working diligently to innovate portals, while building, updating, upgrading, and maintaining them. The project has grown to 80 members so far, and has become a beehive of activity.

Our two main goals at this time are to automate portals (in terms of refreshing, rotating, and selecting content), and to develop a one-page model in order to make obsolete and eliminate most of the 150,000 subpages from the portal namespace by migrating their functions to the portal base pages, using technologies such as selective transclusion. Please feel free to join in on any of the many threads of development at the WikiProject's talk page, or just stop by to see how we are doing. If you have any questions about portals or portal development, that is the best place to ask them.

If you would like to keep abreast of developments on portals, keep in mind that the project's members receive updates on their talk pages. The updates are also posted here, for your convenience.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your support of portals, and we hope to make you proud of your decision. Sincerely,    — The Transhumanist   18:08, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

P.S.: if you reply to this message, please {{ping}} me. Thank you. -TT

Do you want to handle the reverts and I'll warn the accounts and IPs? -- Mr X ☎️ 11:54, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

@Mr Xaero: I'm afarid it is not very helpful to warn them in situations like this. We just have to keep on reverting until the page is protected. Shellwood (talk) 11:57, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
@Shellwood:If we go through the backlog and provide warnings, we might be able to stop some of this mass vandalism Mr X ☎️ 11:58, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
@Shellwood:, thanks for the assist on that article. Mr X ☎️ 12:09, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

@Shellwood you reverted an edit I made on Cantonese. I did not source the information from any website but from my personal knowledge since my relatives originate from China, HongKong — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lcs ylz (talkcontribs) 19:30, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

@Lcs ylz: We dont build articles here based on personal opinions or experiences, see WP:OR. Please dont make these kind of changes again. Shellwood (talk) 19:39, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

@Shellwood Re: Margaret Sanger. OK, I suppose. It's not a big deal; it's already mentioned in the next graf. I just thought it worthwhile to hoist that info in thumbnail form to the start of the article, because it's one of the major points someone would want to know about her at a glance. I came to the article, for instance, to fact-check that point in particular. Far from being destructive, I thought I was helping the next person like myself to come along and verify that point in haste.

@Xx236: Hello there and thanks for bringing light into this. The whole thing looks very suspicious and I cant seem to find any information about this park. The AfD debate you opened is well justified. Shellwood (talk) 15:01, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
