Suggestion by PerryPerryD (2022-10-12)[edit]

The Signpost should write about... User:BeenAroundAWhile, One of (If not the) oldest confirmed wikipedians, who passed away this month. A memorial or an obituary of sorts, to preserve his memory. PerryPerryD Talk To Me 16:07, 12 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion by Chiswick Chap (2022-10-14)[edit]

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has had an interesting effect on other Middle-earth articles, such as on characters in The Lord of the Rings:

Suggestion by JamieF (2022-11-02)[edit]

The Signpost should write about... the View it! tool. A new tool for discoverability of images on Commons in development utilizing Structured Data on Commons. I would be happy to write/help write the article, if others are interested. JamieF (talk) 19:19, 2 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion by Gråbergs Gråa Sång (2022-11-17)[edit]

The what-to-do-about-twitter-blue discussion Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Twitter_Blue_and_verified_Twitter_accounts may be worth a mention. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 14:09, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion by Novem Linguae (2022-11-19)[edit]

The Signpost should write about... Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)#RfC on the banners for the December 2022 fundraising campaign. That's looking like pretty big WMF x Community Relations news for this month, which should be included in any WMF roundup type articles. @Bluerasberry, Jayen466, and Kudpung:. –Novem Linguae (talk) 07:05, 19 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Good suggestion. Andreas has already written a book review for this month's issue, but another WMF article wouldn't hurt - especially as I ironically had to tag the author's Wiki article for serious BLP issues today. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 08:48, 19 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion by Daniel Case (2022-11-25)[edit]

The Signpost should write about... University of Kansas archaeologist John Hoopes' praise for Wikipedia's articles in that area at the end of a recent interview in Slate Daniel Case (talk) 07:30, 25 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

doubles of people showing up in new Mexico[edit]

The Signpost should write about... 172.56.12.38 (talk) 09:49, 30 November 2022 (UTC) The crew of let's encrypt they are taking over political and justice positions in the state something needs to be done about it muy pronto.Reply[reply]

Suggestion by Dumuzid (2022-12-06)[edit]

The Signpost should write about... Dumuzid (talk) 21:03, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Elon Musk has been something of a tear on his personal site Twitter, including, for instance this], and it seems (from my very subjective point of view) to be getting a lot of pickup. Just thought I would throw it out there! Thanks. Dumuzid (talk) 21:03, 6 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
