WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

New article - Joyce Bennett[edit]

I have created a stub article Joyce M. Bennett, the first Englishwoman to be ordained an Anglican Priest. I've put it at Joyce M. Bennett instead of at Joyce Bennett as the latter already has a number of incoming links for the Australian athlete. It's not really in my usual sphere, and I am sure would benefit from the attention of members of this Wikiproject. DuncanHill (talk) 14:30, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Wrong display on mobile version; not present on Computer Version[edit]

The mobile version of the entry on Mary Irwin-Gibson[1], newly-elected bishop of Montreal, displays "Canadian Dean" as a subtitle on the mobile version; it does not do this on the computer version. How can I fix this? I have just made some minor edits and filled in some career information that appears on her current LinkedIn page[2]. Can I cite this, since it is so liable to change? Thanks! Mark Alan Gibson (talk) 03:05, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Mark, I believe that subtitle is taken from Wikidata. I have updated the bishop's entry there accordingly. Regarding citing LinkedIn, it is certainly a less than ideal source, but using self-published sources (e.g, a profile on a social networking website) in an article about the author is not impermissible.
As well, I must ask, are you the same Mark Gibson who is married to the article's subject? If so, I would suggest that you review Wikipedia's conflict of interest guidelines. In particular, it is preferable if you:
  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you or your family, friends, clients, employers, or others with whom you have a relationship;
  • instead, propose changes on the talk pages of affected articles (see the {{request edit}} template); and
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

Please see the RM discussion here. Looking for relevant voices to round out the discussion. Please copy this to other WikiProjects that might be interested.

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Anglicanism/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Anglicanism.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Anglicanism, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Names of living bishops' families[edit]

Comrades! I've been wondering for a while whether the names of living bishops' (and 'senior' priests') spouses/partners and children ought to not be routinely included in their biographies, even though they are usually made known (certainly in England) in their appointment announcements. The most relevant guideline is WP:BLPNAME and a discussion is here. I agree that it may be notable whether a bishop (&c) is married or not (and how many times), but not to whom. Equally, I would propose that the number of children they have could be routinely included, but I think that including names probably breaches their privacy. DBD 17:21, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

New template[edit]

I have created a new template, Template:Episcopal lineage. It is used to display the lineage leading up to a bishop (including archbishops, cardinals, popes, patriarchs, etc.). It is configured to be used for Catholic, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and other Christian denominations that maintain a historical episcopate. An example of its use can be found on the template page or in the Pope Francis article. Ergo Sum 04:07, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
