Welcome to the March 2014 edition of the Bugle!

The February–March 2014 backlog reduction drive, targeting articles on World War I, finished on 15 March. Several categories showed a marked improvement, including articles needing attention to grammar and to supporting materials, unassessed articles, and articles with incomplete B-Class checklists or no associated task force. The Gold Wiki for top score during the drive was awarded to Sturmvogel 66, and the Silver and Bronze Wikis for second and third place went to Wild Wolf and Dana Boomer, respectively. You can see the full list of participants and their awards here, and the worklist of articles improved or assessed here. Congratulations and thanks to all who organised and/or took part.

In other big news, we congratulate Parsecboy on Wikipedia's largest-ever good topic, the 71-article Light cruisers of Germany. An interview with Parsecboy was recently published by the Signpost (and former Bugle) editor The ed17.

Congratulations are also in order for Hchc2009, our latest recipient of the WikiChevrons with Oak Leaves, for his great work on medieval history.

As always, this issue's article news section includes a wrap-up new Featured Content and A-Class articles; while an unusually small number of articles were promoted to Featured status last month, there were no less than five new Featured Pictures, including a rather controversial recent mission patch. In our other regular department, we bring you new three book reviews by Hawkeye7 and Nick-D.

Don't forget that the Bugle's editors are always on the look out for op-eds to run in future editions, so anyone with something to published is warmly encouraged to post their submission at the Newsroom, or to contact Ian or Nick.

Your editors, Ian Rose (talk) and Nick-D (talk)
