GAN: Hachijō-jima[edit]

There's a Good article discussion happening at Talk:Hachijō-jima/GA1, and you're invited to participate. Thanks! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:56, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

If someone else can come look at this, that would be great. I've done an initial review, so now we need someone to implement the changes. I'd do them, but then my review wouldn't be valid for making it a Good Article. Thanks for any help! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:41, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
If one or two people can come look over this and make the suggested changes, that would be great. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes. I reviewed it, so I can't be the one making the changes. Thanks! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:58, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Infobox alt text for images[edit]

I tried to add the line | static_image_alt = to the infobox and got an error message. It wouldn't take | image_alt = , either. Was I doing something wrong, or is WP:MOSALT alt text not possible in this infobox? Cheers, Tony Holkham (Talk) 21:37, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

It's OK, I've found the template and the answer : | image alt = . Tony Holkham (Talk) 21:42, 21 March 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.

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   07:42, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Island's name[edit]

Please, someone can help me to find the name of the island in this painting? Thank you. --95.252.62.76 (talk) 09:44, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
