Section Recent Articles is no longer being updated[edit]

The section Recent Articles is no longer being updated automatically. Or shall I just add my new article there?--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 14:46, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Added it myself. Also tagged the project as semi-active, pending a non-active tag. It is becoming a sleepy hollow place here, guys.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 15:43, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
that can be a very skewed perception of what a project is doing or not - just because recent articles is not being updated does not mean some part of the project is still being worked upon or not JarrahTree 23:06, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Indeed. But there has been a pattern of lack of activity for a while, both on the WikiProject itself and the talk page here. Try comparing with other WikiProjects.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 06:59, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
There is the potential to start asking questions or seeing if any one wants to discuss items JarrahTree 08:36, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
There have been many, JarrahTree. See for example below here. But no response. I noticed there is discussion at Talk:Buddha and Talk:Buddhism. So there are editors interested in editing and discussing Buddhist articles, but they don't use the WikiProject. That's why I have tagged it, to start a discussion as to why the page is no longer used.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 13:14, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes it take time before editors either return or get interested - it varies between the quiet projects as to what happens to them to revive JarrahTree 13:16, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Indeed.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 13:25, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

facetiousness (as it can be taken), and impatience - are neither part of the buddhist ethic for a start, or editing wikipedia for that matter, - there is an item above which shows you sked another editor regarding urgency over issues. Try patience, and politeness, and we are way in the right direction JarrahTree 13:29, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I am not certain what the connection is with marking a Wikiproject as semi-active. This is a useful tag, that will attract more people to take care of the WikiProject.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 17:57, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

that rarely happens -it goes back to the be bold style as promoted ten years ago - all it takes is an adventurous editor to take the tag off , update the maintenance issues (project tagging - adding to talk pages), assessing some pages, and the basic machinery of government of a project is slowly moving again, as to whether others ever actually take up the signs of life is another thing again... inactive tags usually put people off, specially if they are not into project maintenance JarrahTree 23:26, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

Holy days, holidays, days of observance or what?[edit]

There is a discussion about the word that should be used for religious days in Buddhism. Please weigh in.--Farang Rak Tham (talk) 11:33, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Requested article: Tibet House, London[edit]

Would anybody care to create a stub for Tibet House, 1 Culworth Street, London, which "aims to reflect the aspirations of the Tibetan community ... based on His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s principles of truth, non-violence and genuine democracy." http://www.tibet-house-trust.co.uk/aboutus/ (We already have an article on Tibet House in NY, NY, so this should be at Tibet House, London ? or Tibet House (London) ?) (Not sure about naming conventions.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.60.63.116 (talk) 05:17, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

If the topic is notable, consider asking at Talk:Dalai Lama or Talk:14th Dalai Lama.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 20:58, 14 February 2018 (UTC)
