Adding archive[edit]

I am adding an archive to this talk page, as there are lots lots of old announcements that get in the way of current tasks. Of course feel free to move items from the archive back onto the active talk page! For now, I moved all most announcements from 2010 and prior seem to have had no action since. I left those about adding coordinates and unreferenced living persons as there is still work to be done in those areas. Although I did these manually, another option is to add an automatic archive system. Behemothing (talk) 16:41, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

I know the archive box floats to the right and makes the other boxes look a bit wonky, but am not exactly sure how to address this issue to make it look a bit cleaner. Behemothing (talk) 17:02, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

28 Cameroon-related articles needing geographical coordinates[edit]

Based on a search of Wikipedia's articles related to Cameroon, I've found some articles that I believe are about places in Cameroon, and could usefully have geographical coordinates added.

The articles in question are listed in Category:Cameroon articles missing geocoordinate data. At the time of writing, some examples included:

  1. Campo Ma'an National Park
  2. Campo River
  3. Lake Lobake National Park
  4. Little Mount Cameroon
  5. Mankon Museum
  6. Mouloudou
  7. Mount Manengouba

...and there are many more, as well. At the time of posting this notice, there were 28 articles in this category needing geographical coordinates. By adding coordinates, a Wikipedia reader can easily view the location on a street map, nautical chart, topographic map, by satellite photo, realtime weather map, and in many other ways. Coordinate data makes an article eventually appear in various services such as Google Maps' Wikipedia overlay, Google Earth, and Wikipedia's own internal map service. Coordinate data also helps readers looking for geographically-based data, such as locations near a reference point, or related information. The articles are all marked with {{coord missing}} tags, which need to be replaced with {{coord}} tags that contain the location's latitude/longitude coordinates; or you might be able to add coordinates to an existing infobox. You can find out how to do this at the Wikipedia:Geocoding how-to for WikiProject members. Please let me know if this is useful, or if you have any questions! -- The Anome (talk) 09:51, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

The page is now up to 250 articles missing geocoordinate data. Behemothing (talk) 17:04, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Cameroon/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Cameroon/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 01:19, 28 March 2010 (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)

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.

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. Would anybody here be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:01, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

There is probably also need for a tie-up with Wiki Loves Women and Wikipedia:Women in Red. Has anyone been looking at these possibilities?--Ipigott (talk) 10:18, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
