I don't want to put a mumbo jumbo into the bongo, I don't want to do too much glitz in the blitz, damzels and sirs, but I wonder if it would be a good thing to create (like now or yesterday) a Java WikiProject along the classy Programming languages WikiProject (like there is for C++) under the Computing and Computer science WikiProjects. If I'm cor-rec-to, there are about 900 articles or more on Java technology in Wikipedia, which may be more than ALL other programming languages articles combined... Proof is in the pudding my good friends so let's join the bandwagon of free coffee from the east... Please also go to this sexy page --Alainr345 (talk) 07:23, 24 September 2009 (UTC)


I then recently wrote the following text on this page (where you can support the new project):

' WikiProject Java is a Wikipedian community that aims to better organize information in articles related to the Java programming language and its platform.

  • If I'm cor-rec-to, there are about 900 articles on Java technology in Wikipedia, which may be more than ALL other programming languages articles combined...
  • At least, it's more than for C++, and there IS a C++ WikiProject...
  • And it's MUCH more than the .NET WikiProject with 82 articles...
  • There is also a Python project and a Ruby project so...'

So the project page at this point is just a stub for things to come when and if the Wikiproject is 'approved'. The exact TEXT on it is not so important, I worked more on the SECTIONS of it. So don't hesitate in commenting it here. Thanks,

From this stems also the need for a proper Java Portal. The exact TEXT on it is not so important either at this point, I worked more on the LAYOUT and SECTIONS of it. So don't hesitate in commenting it also on its talk page. Thanks, --Alainr345 (talk) 04:21, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

Wikiproject assessment

So that an article has several folks helping to tag and assess articles, it may be wise to collaborate with WikiProject Computer science and its related WP which you have mentioned such as C++ etc, and adapt the WikiProject Computer science assessment article talk page template such as how WP Canada has its provinces and its work projects being assessed out of one main assessment template....Template:WikiProject Canada, it is very handy.

Thanks for the advice, that's what we will do. AlainR345TechnoWikiGeek 05:23, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

WP new articles / new contributors

You'se have a wonderful draft of an outreach template to send out to folks editing existing articles on your watchlist. To find new article creators/new editors try this robot and setting up its syntax for finding new articles related to your WP for example see WP Prince Edward Island New Articles. Then you have a few more folks to invite. SriMesh | talk 02:31, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again, AlexNewArtBot will be one of my next undertakings. AlainR345TechnoWikiGeek 05:25, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
