Greek radio and television stations[edit]

New User:Trapezanidis 1453 has been creating a number of these, probably translating from Greek Wikipedia. It might be useful for someone from this project to assist him with infoboxes, cats, notability for broadcasters and English. I have left a note on his talk page suggesting the same.

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.

Background[edit]

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)

Template needs help[edit]

{{Infobox Greek prefecture}} is broken — the area_rank parameter displays wikicode instead of the links it’s supposed to. I don’t know enough about templates to fix it myself, and I don’t know whether keeping that parameter is important or not. I hope someone here can clean it up. Thanks!

Olive oil[edit]

Hello, I have been making contributions to olives, olive oil, and olive cultivar articles including concerning Greece. I recently added referenced content to the "Production" section of Olive oil that was pretty quickly double reverted: 1)- Because I made implications that "Greece includes Crete", and to 2)- "trim content on Greece as outdated". Some of the content was kept but not all.
Some of the added content concerned agourélaio olive oil that I thought interesting and encyclopedic so I commented on the talk page with no results. There was comments made concerning balance as deletion reasoning but that is not accurate. If someone has the time and interest to look I would appreciate it. Otr500 (talk) 23:08, 4 July 2018 (UTC)
