Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 13:06, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Template for cartoon characters and template for animated series characters[edit]

I propose to create templates under the names: Template:Infobox cartoon character and Template:Infobox animated series character. In Russian Wikipedia, there is only a template for the character of the animated series, but there is no template infobox character from cartoon. But I also suggest, after creating a template for the animated series character, to combine with him the character patterns of the Simpsons, South Park and others that are in EnWiki. In general, my idea is to use templates in articles about characters who appeared only in a cartoon or an animated series, and if the character drawn appeared in movies, video games and other format, then simply use a character template.

Tom & Jerry "English", and italics[edit]

Why are cartoons like the original Tom & Jerry cartoon episodes being infoboxed and sometimes categorized as English-language, when they have no dialogue at all (some of the later episodes did, but not the original series).

Furthermore, I'm finding most of these with {{Italic title}} and given in italics in the infoboxes, but as episodes they should be in quotation marks per MOS:TITLES. The only one I care about watchlist-wise is "Cue Ball Cat", but there seems to a whole lot of cleanup to do.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  18:02, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

I can only answer the first, since I'm only an enWP-visitor. The original T&J had dialogue, just no dialogue from T&J. The side characters Spike and Tyke, the landlady and many others had spoken early. --H8149 (talk) 10:31, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Request to reassess A Short Vision[edit]

I rewrote the article, so I would like to request a reassess the stub on the article. To see, if that would change. Thanks. Do the Danse Macabre! (Talk) 20:28, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Fake nominees in list of award ceremonies[edit]

While translating 44th Annie Awards in French, I've noticed discrepancies between the entries listed in the article and the list of nominees in additional sources. After a quick check of the official source, I've established these entries (about SpongeBob SquarePants and Sesame Street) are fake and immediately removed them.

I'm concerned, though. Who did this? Are there more fakes like this? Is it part of a wider marketing campaign or "test" of Wikipedia? I'm not used to Wikipedia in English and need to opinion about it. J. N. Squire (talk) 20:34, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Request to assess Bubble and Squeek[edit]

I made the article Bubble and Squeek, which is a set of late 40s British animated cartoons; but it is not assessed yet. I would like to request an assessment of the page please. Thanks. Do the Danse Macabre! (Talk) 18:41, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:25, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Need help finding sources for Portable hole[edit]

I've been working on Portable hole. When I started, it was almost entirely unsourced WP:OR. I've made some progress finding sources, but not as much as I'd like. Many entries remain unsourced, and many of the sources I've added are, admittedly, not reliable. There's no doubt that this is a notable concept, having been used in film, cartoons, and literature by many authors. But, good sources are hard to find. I'd appreciate any help. -- RoySmith (talk) 16:39, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Should Woody Woodpecker be split or is it already the franchise article?[edit]

Need your opinions on whether Woody Woodpecker (series) should be created. Right now the Woody Woodpecker article lists all the adaptations and gives sufficient history on the subject. Please discuss at Talk:Woody Woodpecker#Woody Woodpecker (series) was redirected again. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 03:00, 2 September 2018 (UTC)
