Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Los Angeles area task force[edit]

I need some help in cleaning up a move from "Los Angeles task force" to "Los Angeles area task force." Try this link: Wikipedia:WikiProject California/Los Angeles area task force. Sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 14:34, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject Timeline Tracer - not active?[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Timeline Tracer is tagged as possibly inactive, but marked as "yes" on the list in the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory/History and society page. I am new to this, but what I have seen is that there is a distinction between "This WikiProject is defunct" tag and "This WikiProject is believed to be inactive" tag. So I am unsure if it is time or not to mark this project as a "no" in the Active column within the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory/History and society page. Thanks.

The banner template (to which I have added documentation) is used on fewer than 50 article talk pages. Of these, only three (Jacques Benveniste, Ralph Ignatowski, Lauri Lehtinen) are biographies, which surprises me given that the WikiProject covers claims to lineage and proof of legitimacy - I would have expected a few of the European historical figures to be covered, particularly those involved in (or whose deaths caused) wars of succession. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 11:19, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Wiki-bot for dead links and link update verification[edit]

Hi guys, I might be on the wrong page here, but I wonder if there is any bot the scans the wikipages for links and check if they change or die. In particular I am thinking about external links like references. It is quite common that these are outdated. Several actions could be taken; alert the wiki-author, cache a copy of the link until page has been updated. Just change the wiki entry and state the the link has been changed or died. Is this something of interest to the community?

I'm pretty sure we have a bot for that, and I know we have User:InternetArchiveBot already to fix the problem as best we can. --Izno (talk) 18:26, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
@SweRavn: This is not really a WikiProject Council issue (see here for what the WikiProject Council does), your question falls within the purview of WP:BOTREQ. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:09, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Template:WikiProject Philippine Roads[edit]

I've just found Template:WikiProject Philippine Roads which is a mess. I've left a note at the talk page of its creator, HueMan1 (talk · contribs). I cannot find evidence that it was proposed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 09:51, 7 September 2018 (UTC)
