Welcome all contributing editors and friends of WikiProject Messianic Judaism. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but hopefully I've developed enough of the project to get us started. I have added a few items I think should be on our to do list. Feel free to discuss here anything about developing articles for Messianic Judaism. If you would like to see an item added to the To Do List feel free to discuss it here or just add it. inigmatus 19:09, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

If you want to join the project as a member, be sure to add your name to the member list found on the project page. Also, don't forget to add the Wikiproject Messianic Judaism template to your userpage so you can share the vision with them all. inigmatus 02:17, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Coordinators' working group[edit]

Hi! I'd like to draw your attention to the new WikiProject coordinators' working group, an effort to bring both official and unofficial WikiProject coordinators together so that the projects can more easily develop consensus and collaborate. This group has been created after discussion regarding possible changes to the A-Class review system, and that may be one of the first things discussed by interested coordinators.

All designated project coordinators are invited to join this working group. If your project hasn't formally designated any editors as coordinators, but you are someone who regularly deals with coordination tasks in the project, please feel free to join as well. — Delievered by §hepBot (Disable) on behalf of the WikiProject coordinators' working group at 05:58, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Discussion regarding Christianity project organization[edit]

Any comments regarding the structure and function of Christianity related material are welcome at Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/General Forum#Project organization. Be prepared for some rather lengthy comments, though. There is a lot of material to cover there. John Carter (talk) 17:46, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Consultation on renaming article: Roman Catholic Church --> Catholic Church[edit]

Wikipedians at Talk:Roman Catholic Church/Mediation on Naming Convention are discussing the merits of changing the article name as such.

Christianity coordinators elections[edit]

Any parties interested in being one of the coordinators of WikiProject Christianity and its various related projects is encouraged to list themselves as a candidate at Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Coordinators/Election 2. It would be particularly beneficial if we had individuals from as broad a range of areas of the project as possible, to help ensure that we have people knowledgable about the widest range of content possible.

WP 1.0 bot announcement[edit]

This message is being sent to each WikiProject that participates in the WP 1.0 assessment system. On Saturday, January 23, 2010, the WP 1.0 bot will be upgraded. Your project does not need to take any action, but the appearance of your project's summary table will change. The upgrade will make many new, optional features available to all WikiProjects. Additional information is available at the WP 1.0 project homepage. — Carl (CBM · talk) 03:35, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Possible expansion of the project?[edit]

It seems to me that the modern movement called Messianic Judaism is probably very closely related to the various earlier Jewish Christian groups. Also, although I myself am not particularly knowledgable about the subject, I tend to think that the earlier Jewish Christian groups would likely be mentioned in texts about current Messianic Judaism, and that such material might, reasonably, be relevant for inclusion in articles about the earlier Jewish Christian groups. Would the members of this project favor expanding its scope to cover all aspects of Jewis Christianity, Torah-observant Christianity, and/or whatever other terms such groups have been identified by? I myself, in my admitted lack of knowledge of the subject, would favor such a move. John Carter (talk) 21:42, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Messianic Judaism articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Messianic Judaism articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

Christianity portals[edit]

I am currently trying to get together some lists of articles relevant to each Christianity-related portal which could be used, at least potentially, to help bring all the extant portals up to Featured Portal status. The current, admittedly incomplete, list of articles, images, etc., relevant to each portal can be found at User:John Carter/Christianity portals. I also think that, at least in theory, we would probably best use a single article only in a single portal, and that we probably have enough articles to do that, although there might be a few exceptions. I would welcome input from anyone on the associated talk page regarding which articles and other materials they would like to see associated with which portal(s), any suggestions for additional portals or changes to existing portals, etc. Thank you.

Please see: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Counter-missionary. The article is supported by this project. Borock (talk) 20:59, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Proposed changes to project scope and talk page[edit]

I have recently started discussion about possibly changing both the scope of this particularly project and the use of a separate talk page for it here and here. Input from any interested editors is very welcome and encouraged. Thank you. John Carter (talk) 22:06, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Messianic Judaism[edit]

For some reason I have bug in my settings (it isn't wp's problem) which is preventing the page loading. But I noticed that the Hebrew terms for the Trinity have just gone. I think I may have been the one who added them - from an Israeli Hebrew Christian source. If they've been deleted there for a good reason (didn't see any discussion or edit summary before my settings kicked in) where would Jewish Christian Trinitarianism go? In ictu oculi (talk) 06:33, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Not sure to what you're referring. I've been doing some edits at the article, mainly of the copy- variety, some of which involved the removal of material that was either unsourced, redundant, or both. Once you can get the page to load properly, let me know exactly what was removed. Would you like me to re-post this message at the article's talk page in the meantime?

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Joel Chernoff[edit]

Some editors seem to think the either Joel Chernoff is not notable or the article doesn't properly demonstrate this. Can anyone help? Or do you agree? :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 12:59, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Request for Comment[edit]
