Kento Masuda[edit]

I was wondering if a member of this Project who knows Italian could check out the pages Kento Masuda and Hiroko Tsuji (musician)? Written by the same editor, both seem to assert the subjects have been entered into the Order of St. Sylvester and cite a page in Italian as proof. The Tsuji page has a photo of her holding what seems to be certificate in Italian. I suspect that both pages are self-promotion and may be exaggerating the relationship to the Order. Michitaro (talk) 22:45, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

The page in Italian used as a reference for Masuda actually says that Masuda entered the order, and he appears in the picture (third from the right in the front row) so I think it is a reasonably sound reference for the purpose. The web page itself is self-celebrating and not a good reference overall, but proves Masuda's affiliation. Given that, my feeling is that being accepted in the Order is somewhat of a honoris causa award and it makes no sense to have that line in the opening of the article on Masuda as if this was something very important or significant about him. Possibly a side note somewhere might be enough, and possibly not even needed. Moongateclimber (talk) 09:56, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
I couldn't resist and edited it. I also removed words like "distinguished" title... The matter is again discussed in the biography, and still, I think, to a larger extent than reasonable; but at least it's not in the opening paragraph. Moongateclimber (talk) 10:00, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:12, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Andria train collision[edit]

Very sad news about the Andria train collision. Please see the talk page, for a question about image licensing. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:03, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Assistance from Italian speaking editors in expanding the article from Italian sources would be appreciated. Also, there appears not to be an article covering the accident on the Italian Wikipedia. Mjroots (talk) 19:18, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Forgotten states in the Italian maps[edit]

Commune Infobox[edit]

The Italian articles for communes always provide an image of the respective stemma for the comumune itself and the region and province it belongs to in the infobox. Is there ever going to be a concerted effort to update this on all the English articles? I think it's overwhelmingly aesthetically pleasing to the article layout and automatically formalises it. Even if this is a moot point based on subjectivity, it can't be said it's not relevant to the article. Only having the regional flag -- as it is in most articles -- is chintzy.

WLM Italy 2016 pre-jury[edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments Italy needs pre-jurors, people with 1-3 hours of time that select a 20-30-40% of 1000-2000 submitted pictures for the final jury.

Pre-jurors are professional photographers and wikimedians. Now, Italian users usually takes pictures so to be pre-jurors they cannot take part in the competition. So I was thinking, if anyone of you speaks decently Italian (you can understand some mail with instructions) would you like to join? If you live outside Italy (statistically) you have no conflict of interest. But as wikimedians you can judge the wiki-quality of those pictures like everybody else and provide a good evaluation.
