GA Sweeps invitation[edit]

This message is being sent to WikiProjects with GAs under their scope. Since August 2007, WikiProject Good Articles has been participating in GA sweeps. The process helps to ensure that articles that have passed a nomination before that date meet the GA criteria. After nearly two years, the running total has just passed the 50% mark. In order to expediate the reviewing, several changes have been made to the process. A new worklist has been created, detailing which articles are left to review. Instead of reviewing by topic, editors can consider picking and choosing whichever articles they are interested in.

We are always looking for new members to assist with reviewing the remaining articles, and since this project has GAs under its scope, it would be beneficial if any of its members could review a few articles (perhaps your project's articles). Your project's members are likely to be more knowledgeable about your topic GAs then an outside reviewer. As a result, reviewing your project's articles would improve the quality of the review in ensuring that the article meets your project's concerns on sourcing, content, and guidelines. However, members can also review any other article in the worklist to ensure it meets the GA criteria.

If any members are interested, please visit the GA sweeps page for further details and instructions in initiating a review. If you'd like to join the process, please add your name to the running total page. In addition, for every member that reviews 100 articles from the worklist or has a significant impact on the process, s/he will get an award when they reach that threshold. With ~1,300 articles left to review, we would appreciate any editors that could contribute in helping to uphold the quality of GAs. If you have any questions about the process, reviewing, or need help with a particular article, please contact me or OhanaUnited and we'll be happy to help. --Happy editing!

Could someone please take a look at the edits by (talk · contribs)? He claims to be reverting vandalism. Who then was a gentleman? (talk) 01:14, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

See your talk page. --Afghana [talk] 07:07, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
So far most of the edits by the user can be considered as vandalism because all the person is doing is deleting Pashto/Pashtun related contents in different pages of wikipedia. (Ketabtoon (talk) 19:30, 25 July 2009 (UTC))

GA reassessment of Persian literature[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. I have found a large number of concerns with the article which you can see at Talk:Persian literature/GA1. I have de-listed the article and when the concerns have been addressed it can be renominated at WP:GAN. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 18:45, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Request for assistance[edit]

Hey guys, I work over at the Motto of the Day project, and I was wondering if someone here would be willing to help us out with something. A quote was submitted to become one of our daily mottos; it was taken from Wikiquote where it is said to be an Afghani proverb. However, we're not 100% confident on the English translation. If any of you guys are native speakers, would you mind popping over and taking a look at it for us? We'd really appreciate the assistance. The discussion is here. Thanks again for the help and for your time. Nutiketaiel (talk) 12:17, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Error in a reference. I don't know how to fix it.[edit]

There's an error in the 22nd reference at the bottom of the article. Evan Thomas's article appeared in the OCTOBER 1 2001 issue of Newsweek, not the January 2001 issue as is stated in the reference. Can someone who knows how to make that edit please make that change?

What are the Dari and Pashto names of the Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Afghanistan)? WhisperToMe (talk) 16:25, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Battle of Singara[edit]

Why is battle of Singara 344 CE included as part of WikiProject Afghanistan? The battle was between the forces of Sasanian Persia (Eran) and the Eastern Roman Empire. It has nothing to do with Afghanistan. Doug Me (talk) 04:27, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 02:26, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Nasrullah Khan[edit]

Hi guys. Myself and ManicSpider have been working on the article Nasrullah Khan which we found while doing unsourced articles patrol, but neither of us have any prior knowledge of Afghanistan history or any real familiarity with the region, so we could use the help of any Afghan historians out there. Or alternatively the page could use an independent quality assessment. Thanks! - DustFormsWords (talk) 01:37, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Operation Moshtarak[edit]

I can´t edit this article, but ISAF says there are 25,000 to 36,000 talibans. See here (german): [1] (Quotation: "Die Isaf schätzt die Zahl der Aufständischen auf 25.000 bis 36.000 Kämpfer.") --Wahresmüsli (talk) 16:08, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Waheed Omer[edit]

Hello all. The article Waheed Omer was recently submitted through WP:Articles for creation. The article has been accepted and is now live, and I took the liberty of adding it to WikiProject Afghanistan. The article could use some help from someone who reads Dari to look through the one source in Dari, and to look for more sources in the language. Thanks. Wine Guy~Talk 02:56, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
