WECTEC Post Bankruptcy personnel have rumored the current schedule now indicates completion in 2023 with a cost to complete estimated at 10.8 Billion Dollars.

Score assessment[edit]

2.2 Assessment has a table of article numbers ranked by importance and quality. Numbers in the table link to lists of articles and their scores. How are these scores assessed? Rwbest (talk) 11:03, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Oil well?[edit]

Is the oil well icon really appropriate for this WikiProject? Wouldn't it be nicer to have some other symbol to convey the fact that this project is also (if not mainly, in terms of number of articles) about renewable energy? --Ita140188 (talk) 17:16, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

@Ita140188: Yes, it seems odd that this WikiProject has a symbol of the fossil fuel industry as its icon. Is there a more relevant icon that could replace it? Jarble (talk) 22:33, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject Energy at Wikidata[edit]

Hello! We now have WikiProject Energy at Wikidata. The main goal is to standardise structure of information saved to Wikidata, coordinate inter-wiki projects to enable cross-site usage of data (i.e. in infoboxes), in addition to other tasks. Please do sign-up if you are interested. And feel free to make changes and expand as necessary. Happy editing! Rehman 04:40, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikidata/2018 Infobox RfC[edit]

Hi. Your opinion at the above RFC is deeply valued. The RFC decides if Wikipedia would support data from Wikidata for use in infoboxes (Example - notice the infobox in edit mode). Thank you, Rehman 17:29, 11 April 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   07:36, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
