  • User:MusikAnimal It seems to me that very few care about the nominations. Which is too bad. Perhaps a bot could notify editors involved in the project of new noninations.--BabbaQ (talk) 12:42, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
  • And as we have an member list it would be quite easy I assume to make a bot notify members when a new article is nominated. And as we don’t get too many noms it would not be a spamming situation.BabbaQ (talk) 12:46, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
  • @BabbaQ: I think that would be a good idea. I have the nominations page on my watchlist, but I don't always notice new edits among everything else. Clovermoss (talk) 21:19, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @Clovermoss: Yes, I hope that this can be accomplished via a bot soon. I think it would definitely benefit the project. I have the same problem, I follow the nom page but miss it quite often amongst other articles and editing work etc.--BabbaQ (talk) 22:51, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @BabbaQ: Maybe new talk page threads could be notifications as well? There aren't new posts here that often. I must admit that I only saw this just now because I was browsing after making another TAFI nomination. Any input would be appreciated. Another thing that might be helpful is an extended no response time for nominations before automatically being deemed unsuccessful due to inactivity. Clovermoss (talk) 23:01, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @Clovermoss: Is there some way to get this to happen sooner than later. I wonder who to contact.BabbaQ (talk) 23:03, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @BabbaQ: The only person I know that's super good with scripts would be Beland, but I'm not sure if they'd be able to help with this. Clovermoss (talk) 04:57, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
  • I'm afraid with work being busy I'm having trouble keeping up with the bot tasks I already have running. 8/ -- Beland (talk) 15:20, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Rattyhats (talk) 17:54, 13 April 2020 (UTC) Is this project active?

Not sure. I came here to add a few noms but I'm not an active participant. So it at least still has appeal, and the article of the week still gets some extra attention, even if it's just being updated by a bot. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 19:33, 16 April 2020 (UTC)



Comment. If I'm not mistaken, this week's #28 TAFI (Russian Academy of Natural Sciences) has already appeared before on week #17. I believe nobody noticed this because of a possible archiving issue? As you can see in the schedule archives, week #17 is missing. I'm left wondering whether this should be left as is (letting editors give this TAFI a second go) or a new TAFI should take its place?
