Korean Tour external link template[edit]

I'm thinking of creating a WikiProject Golf at the Korean Tour official site (in Korean) on the lines of the others at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Golf/Templates#External_link_templates. This would link through to , eg K. J. Choi would be . The only issue is that pages are in Korean but the "translate to English" in my Chrome browser is helpful, although occasionally obscure (eg height = 신장 is translated as kidney. The page contains a lot of good stuff. eg the second option (결과 = results) gives season by season results.

Failed log in attempt[edit]

Has anyone else here received a notification for a failed log in attempt? I got one yesterday. And from what I read, it's happening to many. Johnsmith2116 (talk) 18:46, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

I got multiple notifications of the same thing. Somebody is trying to hack Wikipedia is my theory....William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 20:34, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
I've had one notification of that. pʰeːnuːmuː →‎ pʰiːnyːmyː → ‎ɸinimi → ‎fiɲimi 20:58, 4 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   07:40, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Proposed change to WP:NGOLF[edit]

I have made a proposed change to WP:NGOLF at WT:Notability (sports)#Proposed change to WP:NGOLF. This proposes deleting the final sentence. Nigej (talk) 08:43, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

Asian Tour player pages[edit]

I have updated {{AsianTour player}}. Players have new numbers on the Asian Tour website: Shubhankar Sharma for instance is 245. If you go through the official site you get to but it turns out that anything (or indeed nothing) before the -p245 is ok, so gets you there too (at least for me). I didn't realise this for a while and the current version of the template uses (ie using {{PAGENAMEBASE}} with spaces replaced by dashes). Nigej (talk) 08:33, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

The template (like some others) has an optional second parameter which is pretty useless at the moment "*{{AsianTour player|245|abcde}}" changes the link to and also changes the text to "abcde at the Asian Tour official site" Nigej (talk) 08:40, 23 June 2018 (UTC)
