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   10:55, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Ukrainian Autocephaly and Possible Schism- extra eyes needed[edit]

It looks like the Ecumenical Patriarch is planning to issue a tomos of autocephaly to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (which one?). Moscow is already making it clear they are not going to take this lying down. We should be keeping an eye on the relevant articles. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:50, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Ukrainian Orthodox Church (which one?) - As I understand it, he gives autocephaly to Ukraine, not just one concrete structure. The Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate will become canonically recognized and autocephalous. The parishes of the Moscow Patriarchate can join it, otherwise they will become the exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine. The old Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church supports this and is ready to enter the new autocephalous Ukrainian Orthodox Church. What's wrong?--Nicoljaus (talk) 12:39, 8 September 2018 (UTC)
Nicoljaus, this is still just speculation. HAH Bartholomew has named two exarchs for Ukraine and his relationship with the canonical church or either uncanonical jurisdiction is still unclear. UOC-MP is obviously protesting the decision with support from other churches, with special revolt from the MP. The KP is commemorating the decision. I haven't come across any news related to the UAOC's actions over the last few months, but it was involved with the EP just like the KP was in the first parts of this whole ordeal.
