Upsilon2 Ceti[edit]

The star designation Upsilon2 Ceti does not appear to be widely used, if at all. I'd like to rename it 56 Ceti, which at least gets search hits in Google. Any objection? Praemonitus (talk) 23:29, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

I've added it to WP:RMT. Praemonitus (talk) 17:27, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
@Praemonitus:Upsilon2 Ceti should be the correct designation over the Flamsteed number, but it seems upsilon 2 Cet in SIMBAD doesn't recognise it. (No annotation.) The basis is Uranometria Argentina by Gould, but he doesn't mention upsilon 2 at all. Upsilon Cet is 59 Cet. Good ahead and change it, because in this case 56 Cet is correct.Arianewiki1 (talk) 09:05, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

PGC objects[edit]

Hi. I'm user from another wiki and I'd like to add list of PGC objects to my wiki. I have 2 versions of file with the list. Both of them have more than 983000 rows but catalog includes ~73000 objects. Can you help me with that? I can send you both version by wikimail. --Artificial123 (talk) 20:27, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

@Artificial123: Which wiki are you from? In any case though, I'd recommend improving/adding to the list of NGC objects, which are more notable, and more likely to be used by others. A list of PGC objects would be extremely large and not really practical. Loooke (talk) 15:10, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
Belarusian wiki. We have almost all NGC objects. --Artificial123 (talk) 15:13, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

WP:CHEMISTRY/WP:CHEMICALS shorcut updated[edit]

Note that per this RFC, the shortcuts to WP:CHEMISTRY/WP:CHEMICALS have been updated.

Old discussions have had their shortcuts updated already. If I have made a mistake during an update, feel free to revert. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 15:57, 23 March 2017 (UTC)


Why doesn't this project have its own banner? Most other WikiProjects have their on banners. —MartinZ (talk) 17:23, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

MartinZ, this project uses {{Astronomy}} with |object=yes. Primefac (talk) 17:26, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
I know, but most projects have their own banners, with are independent from other projects banners. Why doesn't this project have its own, independent, banner, like other projects? —MartinZ (talk) 17:30, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Because it's a subproject of WP:AST. Primefac (talk) 17:35, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
WikiProject Eclipses is also a subproject of WP:AST, they have their own banner—and according to WP:SCIENCE, WP:AST seems to be their subproject. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MartinZ (talkcontribs) 17:43, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Because... who cares? Praemonitus (talk) 19:58, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Don't change it, as it will make life more difficult for those that tag pages for the project. This subproject is not very independent from the parent anyway. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 02:11, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
{{WPAstronomy|object=yes}} works perfectly well. The assessment criteria come from the parent project anyway. WP:NBDF applies. Modest Genius talk 09:16, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

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 Astronomical objects/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Astronomical objects.

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 Astronomical objects, 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)
