Paprikas, Paprikáš, Paprikaš etc[edit]

Hello - Paprikas could benefit from an expert please.

Are those diacritics and redirects correct, or would it be better to redirect them all to the dab page Paprikas? Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 07:09, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

There is no s-caron character (š) in the Hungarian alphabet. (There is also no 'sh' consonant combination in Hungarian, either, except for foreign loanwords, or local compounds like Mencshely where the 's' is not attached to the 'h' but to the 'c'.) All of the redirects are wrong, imho, because Paprikás is a type of paprika base or stewing sauce, and does not mean any of those things. You could have mushroom paprikas or Tempeh paprikas. All of them should redirect to the same place, probably to the disambig page. (But the disambig page is problematic as well, because Paprikas doesn't mean Goulash or Pörkölt; that would be like having a disambig page for "Gin" which has entries for "Martini", "Tom Collins", and "Gimlet" just because those drinks have gin in them, but that's not what a disambig page is about.} So, perhaps they could redirect to Chicken paprikash, although it would be better if that article had a separate section about the "paprikas" base as a separate section, that could be the target of all of these links.

Perhaps it would make more sense if Chicken paprikash redirected to an article at Paprikás that explains the difference. There's very little at Chicken paprikash about chicken at the moment anyway. - Themightyquill (talk) 07:29, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
No; Chicken paprikash is the standard name for it; Paprikás is ambiguous, and only means "Chicken paprikash" in context, in the same way that "pass the beans" only means "lima beans" when those are the only beans on the table. If Chicken paprikash has very little about chicken, that's the fault of the article content, and doesn't mean the title is incorrect or needs to redirect. Mathglot (talk) 09:41, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your help @Mathglot: and @Themightyquill:. I have retargetted all the redirects above to Chicken paprikash, and redirected the disambiguation page there too because of the reasons Mathglot laid out. I have placed a narrative hatnote at Chicken paprikash. Improvements are welcome! Shhhnotsoloud (talk) 12:03, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:42, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Ikarus article[edit]

Hey! I just recently finished completely rewriting the Ikarus (Hungarian company) article from scratch. Could someone rate it on quality and importance level? :) --MediKron (talk) 17:26, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
