Spoon theory[edit]

There is a discussion going on at Talk:Spoon theory which is relevant to WikiProject Disability. There has been mention of redirecting the page. Your input would be appreciated.- Nocowardsoulismine (talk) 17:18, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Category:Disability culture needs some attention[edit]

The subcategories under Category:Disability culture appear to be somewhat repetitive and sometimes even "circular" instead of hierarchical as category trees are meant to be. Some careful pruning, by merging and/or splitting various subcategories, is needed to tidy up the tangle. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:45, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

I'll look at it this week, Dodger67. I am sure others will too! Best, Jackiekoerner (talk) 22:13, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
Hi all, I've spent some time in hospital with limited internet access, hence no movement on this from me yet. My main concern about the subcategories of Disability Culture is the substantial overlap/duplication/circularity between Category:Disability in the arts, Category:Disability media and Category:Works about disability. However, the boundary between arts and media is inherently fuzzy at best, so some overlap should be expected. I suspect we might find that the "Works about disability" category is largely - or even entirely - redundant, but I am not willing to make that determination all by myself.

Request for collaboration from WikiProject Ice Hockey[edit]

If anyone is interested in collaborating on the Special Hockey article, please message me on my talk page. Thanks. Flibirigit (talk) 19:12, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

I have rewritten the Special Hockey article, and spun off the Special Hockey International article. Any help is appreciated. Flibirigit (talk) 01:10, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I've done a few tweaks. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 12:40, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of[edit]

I have proposed deletion of the article The article appears to fail notability criteria at WP:WEBCRIT. Its sole source is currently a nearly-blank page on subject's own domain. Matt Fitzpatrick (talk) 10:26, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:34, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

History of Hearing Aids[edit]

This section makes unsubstantiated claims about F.C.Rein & the so-called acoustic throne & needs revision. As I did some research on that I am unable to edit the pageHStiles1 (talk) 09:31, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

It's about the History of hearing aids page. HStiles1 thanks for giving the details on the talk page. -- Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 09:49, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
