Open tasks[edit]

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Article Request[edit]

I think the 1934 Latvian coup d'état is deserving of an article. It seems to be one of the most important events in 20th century Latvia yet currently has only a couple of paragraphs in the article History of Latvia, or am I not taking into account content elsewhere? The article Kārlis Ulmanis covers the coup under the sub-heading Authoritarian régime and I think the person and the event are significant enough to warrant separate articles. Latvian, German and Russian WP have articles already. Coverage of the 1926 Lithuanian coup d'état is extensive. User:Visu24 21:36, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Article assessment[edit]

The proportion of all articles with an assessed project banner is:

90.2% assessed (estimate: some more article talk pages may still need a banner)


The proportion of all articles with known importance is:

83.7% known importance (estimate: some more articles may still need importance to be assessed)
