Drop(?) in participation on another wiki-board
At the end of August 2015 the number of page views on another wiki help type board dropped from a daily average of over 600 to less than 200. I don’t know what happened there, but just wondering if this is at all connected to the same issues discussed here? 14:10, 12 September 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ottawahitech (talk • contribs)
- Wikipedia:Editor assistance has existed for many years and I don't see reason to suspect a connection. Going back further with page views, it looks like the high numbers in August was an anomaly and it has just returned to a normal level. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:00, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
likely archiving hiatus
My semiautomated bot and I will be traveling for the next week or so with uncertain internet access, so the rest of you will likely have to add date headers manually and, if the desk gets too large, do some manual archiving.

- I'm back; normal archiving resumes. Thanks to Stabila711 and John of Reading for taking care of things in my absence. —Steve Summit (talk) 17:36, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
Should the Village Pump be added to "Are you in the right place?"?
This is Jahangir here. I am Fan and Frequent Reader of Wikipedia.For most of my assignment, Notes, Exam Preparation i take help from here. I would like to suggest your group to kindly take notice of Wiki on Prophets, as they are Highly Respected by all the People of The Books, to Mention before every Prophet NAME: 'PROPHET' and AFTER NAME : 'PEACE BE UPON HIM'.
I would be grateful of you, for taking notice of my suggestion. Anticipating an Answer From You.
