Jūichimen Kannon needs help

Jūichimen Kannon needs help from someone familiar with Buddhist mythology. There's a lot of info in the Japanese article that could be translated, and there are likely references out there with information. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 04:08, 9 February 2008 (UTC)


Can somebody please take a look at this article? It's somewhat incomprehensible in it's current state. I was tempted to AfD it, but I'd rather not if it's a genuine encyclopedic subject. PC78 (talk) 19:52, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Hmm... Seems to be a genuine folkloristic term, coined by Origuchi. The fact that the ja:wiki article has "cargo cult" in the See also section explains some things. I'll look into this tomorrow, if nobody else volunteers - in the least, I can do a little data transfer from ja:wiki and see if I can also dig up something on the series of tubes.

Phew, I know I promised to look into this, but something big came up, and I have almost no wiki-time right now :( I'll definitely fiddle some with the article in a couple days though. TomorrowTime (talk) 08:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)


So, I think I'm going to join this taskforce and really dive into these mythology articles. But a big question I have is about the 3 navboxes you guys have. I can't seem to figure out when to use which or why certain articles use one type and not the other. Plus a lot of mythology articles do not even have the template. What are the rules of thumb here? I want to make sure and start standardizing articles across the board Torsodog (talk) 04:50, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Which navboxes are you refering to?MightyAtom (talk) 16:08, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Changes to the WP:1.0 assessment scheme

As you may have heard, we at the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial Team recently made some changes to the assessment scale, including the addition of a new level. The new description is available at WP:ASSESS.

  • The new C-Class represents articles that are beyond the basic Start-Class, but which need additional references or cleanup to meet the standards for B-Class.
  • The criteria for B-Class have been tightened up with the addition of a rubric, and are now more in line with the stricter standards already used at some projects.
  • A-Class article reviews will now need more than one person, as described here.

Each WikiProject should already have a new C-Class category at Category:C-Class_articles. If your project elects not to use the new level, you can simply delete your WikiProject's C-Class category and clarify any amendments on your project's assessment/discussion pages. The bot is already finding and listing C-Class articles.

Please leave a message with us if you have any queries regarding the introduction of the revised scheme. This scheme should allow the team to start producing offline selections for your project and the wider community within the next year. Thanks for using the Wikipedia 1.0 scheme!

Hello, I've just closed this article's afd as a Keep. I was wondering if you could expand this to DYK standards.--Lenticel (talk) 08:11, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia 0.7 articles have been selected for Japanese mythology

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

We would like to ask you to review the articles selected from this project. These were chosen from the articles with this project's talk page tag, based on the rated importance and quality. If there are any specific articles that should be removed, please let us know at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.7. You can also nominate additional articles for release, following the procedure at Wikipedia:Release Version Nominations.

A list of selected articles with cleanup tags, sorted by project, is available. The list is automatically updated each hour when it is loaded. Please try to fix any urgent problems in the selected articles. A team of copyeditors has agreed to help with copyediting requests, although you should try to fix simple issues on your own if possible.

We would also appreciate your help in identifying the version of each article that you think we should use, to help avoid vandalism or POV issues. These versions can be recorded at this project's subpage of User:SelectionBot/0.7. We are planning to release the selection for the holiday season, so we ask you to select the revisions before October 20. At that time, we will use an automatic process to identify which version of each article to release, if no version has been manually selected. Thanks!
