Wikipedia:Naming conventions (cuisines)[edit]

This is the proposed naming convention on cuisines that has been percolating for some time, I would like to request all members to please take a look and comment on its talk page. This is a very important rule set that needs to be decided upon, if you wish to establish or please comment under the appropriate section. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 07:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Coordinators' working group[edit]

Hi! I'd like to draw your attention to the new WikiProject coordinators' working group, an effort to bring both official and unofficial WikiProject coordinators together so that the projects can more easily develop consensus and collaborate. This group has been created after discussion regarding possible changes to the A-Class review system, and that may be one of the first things discussed by interested coordinators.

All designated project coordinators are invited to join this working group. If your project hasn't formally designated any editors as coordinators, but you are someone who regularly deals with coordination tasks in the project, please feel free to join as well. — Delievered by §hepBot (Disable) on behalf of the WikiProject coordinators' working group at 05:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Thanks. — Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 09:15, 15 March, 2009 (UTC)

Removal of photo[edit]

Please see Talk:Ice-cream_headache#Please_restore_photo_2, and comment if you wish. Badagnani (talk) 03:56, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Are there enough articles on this subject to justify an Outline of icecream?[edit]

Here's a discussion about subject development you might find interesting.

The Transhumanist 23:45, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

P.S.: There's the Outline of chocolate, Outline of wine, and Outline of sharks...

... but no Outline of ice cream.

New articles for Vanilla ice cream, Strawberry ice cream, and Chocolate ice cream?[edit]

Why not? We have articles on butter brickle, mint chocolate chip, and rocky road, so why not articles on the big three? Especially since chocolate ice cream has no mention in the chocolate article. Purplebackpack89 (talk) 21:40, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Proposed demotion[edit]

{{movereq|Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Food and drink/Dessert Task Force}}

This project appears to be inactive, I am suggesting two things be done:

  1. WikiProject Ice Cream be merged into WikiProject food and drink and converted to a task force
  2. We rename it the Dessert Taskforce to broaden the subject beyond its narrow focus.

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:13, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Name of this, uh, "group"?[edit]

I am seeing different names for this task force all over its page. Most instances of the name of this task force on the task force's page have included a space between the "task" and the "force", so I modified the header to reflect that. But is it the "Desserts Task force", the "Desserts Task Force", or the "Desserts task force"?WIERDGREENMAN (talk) 03:27, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

The welcome cookie says "dessert task force". NOTE: No "s" after "dessert"!WIERDGREENMAN (talk) 01:55, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Because I typed it that way.--Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 06:17, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
It's both "Desserts task force" and "Desserts Task Force". But you can use whatever you prefer. If you desire consistency, pick one and make the necessary changes. ;) -- œ 15:22, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I'll be checking other task forces for style(s).WIERDGREENMAN (talk) 19:56, 21 February 2011 (UTC)


In looking at the history of this redirect, it was orginally created in January 2007 as:

  • #REDIRECT [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Ice Cream]] {{R from shortcut}}

It was changed in December 2009 by @Jerem43: to:

  • #REDIRECT [[Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink/Desserts task force]] {{R from shortcut}}

The "What links here" shows that the redirect is getting use as a variation of WP:BRD, i.e., "Bold", "Revert", "Revert".  I would like to change this redirect to be a redirect to WP:BRD.  I suggest that the existing uses for WP:BRR can be replaced with WP:BRR0Unscintillating (talk) 22:11, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Choc ice[edit]

Should the article Choc ice include its alleged/occasional use as an ethnic slur? This editor thinks that it should not. I have no strong view at all, other than that I am always a bit concerned about the unexplained removal of referenced content, which is where this started. I can see arguments for and against its inclusion. I'm posting to both Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Discrimination and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Food and drink (and here!) about this. The editor concerned is now discussing it at Talk:Choc ice#Racism and it would be great if interested editors from these projects, or anywhere else, wanted to help reach a consensus.
