Hello Another Believer[edit]

Hello there an welcome to the world of Wikipediamusic projects ....OK so i am Moxy i have seen you around...I help projects get started ...i make projects with the projects page layouts etc...So Another Believer i know you been here a long time and may not need any help at all..,,but would you like any help in this areas. ...?? Moxy (talk) 04:01, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Assistance is always appreciated! This is a collaborative WikiProject, afterall! :) --Another Believer (Talk) 04:40, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
ok then lets make you a portal in the next day or so..what colours and articles you would like to see in the portal ???Moxy (talk) 04:47, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
No color preferences at the moment, especially since those can be easily changed in the future. Of course links to her studio albums would be very helpful. As far as I know, List of awards and nominations received by Björk is the only featured list in the project, and Debut (Björk album) and Homogenic are the only Good articles. Björk discography is also very important for readers to have easy access to. --Another Believer (Talk) 04:55, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Quality and importance rating scales[edit]

I went ahead and added Quality and Importance rating scales to improve the project, so be sure to check out the Assessment page for more information.

Status Meaning of Status
Top This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information.
High This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
Mid This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.

For determining the Importance rating (Low, Mid, High, Top) please keep the following in mind:

  • Approximate breakdown of the percentage of articles in each category as a goal.
    • Top=1%
    • High=15%
    • Mid=30%
    • Low=55%

Here is what I am thinking:

  • Top priority = Björk
  • High priority = studio albums + awards list + discography
  • Mid priority = EPs + live albums + video albums
  • Low priority = songs, Matthew Barney, etc.

Feel free to post any questions or comments regarding the scales and ratings. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:57, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Björk articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Björk articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Task #1?[edit]

Well, I was hoping the Popular Pages and Article Alerts would have started by now, but patience is a virtue. We have just a handful of participants signed up for the project at the moment, but I'd love to hit the ground running. Any suggestions for the first task this project should tackle? My suggestion is to get Selmasongs: Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack Dancer in the Dark up to Good status, but I look forward to seeing additional suggestions. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:58, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Well, the article on Björk herself was once a GA. perhaps we should attempt to push that back how it was? Andrzejbanas (talk) 17:01, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Wow! That is quite an undertaking, but I like when editors think big. My only concern is that there are so few participants at this time--it would be a lot of work for just 1 or 2 editors. I posted a reminder on project members' talk pages asking them to add this page to their watchlist, so hopefully others will respond with their suggestions. If they are up to the task, we will certainly take it on! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:09, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
By the way, I can't find a discussion about why the Björk article was de-listed from Good status. Perhaps there isn't one. I was hoping for a list of issues that needed to be addressed if it is to be re-listed. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:54, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Pageview stats[edit]

After a recent request, I added WikiProject Björk to the list of projects to compile monthly pageview stats for. The data is the same used by but the program is different, and includes the aggregate views from all redirects to each page. The stats are at Wikipedia:WikiProject Björk/Popular pages.

The page will be updated monthly with new data. The edits aren't marked as bot edits, so they will show up in watchlists. You can view more results, request a new project be added to the list, or request a configuration change for this project using the toolserver tool. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know. Thanks! Mr.Z-man 00:41, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Björk: Archives[edit]

I redirect Björk: Archives to the main Björk article, at least until more information about the book is released. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:06, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

I created a short article about Björk: Archives. Please feel free to help with its expansion. ---Another Believer (Talk) 18:34, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Should there is an article for the MoMA exhibit specifically? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:11, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Update: I went ahead and created Björk (exhibition). ---Another Believer (Talk) 01:00, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

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.

Discussion about Björk genres[edit]

Hi all, there is a discussion at Talk:Björk about which genres, and how many genres, should be used to describe the artist in the article's infobox. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:31, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Vulnicura Live[edit]

Do we need the separate articles Vulnicura Live (Rough Trade Exclusive) and Vulnicura Live (Commercial Release)? ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:44, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

No, essentially it's one album with two slightly different releases, the same as when an artist releases an album and then later releases a "deluxe edition" with bonus tracks. The two should be merged. anemoneprojectors 08:53, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey Proposal to Revive Popular Pages[edit]

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Björk Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 17:56, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

List of awards and nominations... featured list?[edit]

Bjork's list of awards and nominations seems severely under sourced, so I'm questioning its "Featured list" status even though I'd hate to see the list demoted. Feel free to contribute to this discussion. ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:46, 9 February 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 Björk/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Björk.

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 Björk, 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)
