Template:Infobox archaeological culture[edit]

Currently there's no param for adding an image, only a map. The docs mentions that the map field can be used for an illustrative image when there's no map, but adding a proper field for this is better. map_caption also seems like a good idea. See Micoquien for an article where this would be an improvement. jonkerztalk 14:47, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Input needed at Rhamnous[edit]

Specifically, the dedication of the smaller temple at the site. Mangoe (talk) 22:02, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Please feel free to comment at Talk:Valley of the Statues#Merger proposal – I think this article and San Agustín Archaeological Park are about the same subject and should be merged... I've been there and ought to know myself(!) but hopefully somebody on this WikiProject more knowledgeable than me will be able to confirm. Richard3120 (talk) 23:30, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Looking for feedback on a tool on Visual Editor to add open license text from other sources[edit]

Hi all

I'm designing a tool for Visual Editor to make it easy for people to add open license text from other sources, there are a huge number of open license sources compatible with Wikipedia including around 9000 journals. I can see a very large opportunity to easily create a high volume of good quality articles quickly. I have done a small project with open license text from UNESCO as a proof of concept, any thoughts, feedback or endorsements (on the Meta page) would be greatly appreciated.

Navigation template for prehistoric caves[edit]

I've asked at Template talk:Navbox#Copying/translating a template from another wiki for help creating an English copy of fr:Modèle:Palette Grottes ornées. I'm also trying to create an infobox for such caves, see User:Doug Weller/draft/Template:Prehistoric caves. Doug Weller talk 14:17, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Great idea! I think I can help with the template stuff, see my reply att Template talk:Navbox#Copying/translating a template from another wiki. Joe Roe (talk) 19:14, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I'll start by looking for red links I can turn blue through translation, and headings. I'll leave other red links but try to find their English common name, as red links can be useful and some have articles on other language wikis we can translate.
