Name? WikiProject Pittsburgh Newsletter: Issue 1 (? 2011)[edit]

WikiProject Pittsburgh Newsletter • ? 2011

Welcome to our first issue of WikiProject Pittsburgh newsletter, the [name to be determined].

Our Project has been operational since August 29, 2006, and also serves as the Pittsburgh-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already!

In addition to a Pittsburgh-related discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

  • we have an active assessment department. As of now, our project has tagged almost 5,200 pages as Pittsburgh-related articles, almost all of which have been assessed! See quality assessment and importance assessment if any articles are lacking an assessment (and if so, please be bold and assess them!)
  • once an article is assessed it will appear in our article alerts and news feed, which provides information on which Pittsburgh-related articles are considered for deletion, move, or are undergoing a Good or Featured review. Watchlisting that feed, in addition to watchlisting our project's main page, is a good way to make sure you stay up to date on most Pittsburgh-related discussions.
  • also, those articles will be included in our cleanup listing, which allows us to see which top-importance articles are in need for attention, and so on
  • newly created Pittsburgh-related articles are listed [to be implemented]. They need to be reviewed, often cleaned-up, and its creators may need to be welcomed and invited to our project ({{WP Pittsburgh Invite}})
  • if you think somebody is doing a great job improving Pittsburgh-related content, recognize it with the {{Pittsburgh Star}}
  • we are maintaining a Portal:Pittsburgh
  • automated Wikipedia:WikiProject Pittsburgh/Popular pages lists the most popular Pittsburgh-related pages from the previous month(s) [to be implemented]
  • we have an ongoing real life meetup series of events. Please come to join us in person if you'd like!

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!

With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:Pittsburgh? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?
