Popular pages[edit]

User:Mr.Z-man has a new service available to various requesting WikiProjects which gives the project a monthly update of the number of hits on the 1,000 most frequently accessed articles for that project. An example of such a listing can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Popular pages. Would the members of this project be interested in getting such a list for their use?

Redirects: King Arthur or Matter of Britain?[edit]

For the purposes of consistency and intuitiveness, I have directed the following redirects to King Arthur: Arthurian, Arthurian legend, Arthurian Legend, Arthurian legends, Arthurian Legends. Some of these previously redirected instead to Matter of Britain (and one redirected to something unrelated entirely). However, I think King Arthur is the more natural redirect location for the reader, and the article deals much more comprehensively with, well, the "Arthurian legend" than does the Matter of Britain article currently does. Whatever is decided consistency is needed; a reader who types in Arthurian Legend should be taken to the same place as if he or she typed in Arthurian legend. What do others think?--Cúchullain t/c 14:40, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good to me :-) Hrothgar cyning (talk) 09:58, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Request for comment on Biographies of living people[edit]

Hello Wikiproject! Currently there is a discussion which will decide whether wikipedia will delete 49,000 articles about a living person without references, here:

Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Biographies of living people

Since biographies of living people covers so many topics, many wikiproject topics will be effected.

The two opposing positions which have the most support is:

  1. supports the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, User:Jehochman
  2. opposes the deletion of unreferenced articles about a living person, except in limited circumstances, User:Collect

Comments are welcome. Keep in mind that by default, editor's comments are hidden. Simply press edit next to the section to add your comment.

Please keep in mind that at this point, it seems that editors support deleting unreferenced BLP articles if they are not sourced, so your project may want to source these articles as soon as possible. See the next, message, which may help.

Tools to help your project with unreferenced Biographies of living people[edit]

GA reassessment of Parsifal[edit]

I have conducted a reassessment of the above article as part of the GA Sweeps process. I have found some concerns with the referencing which you can see at Talk:Parsifal/GA1. I have placed the article on hold whilst these are fixed. Thanks. Jezhotwells (talk) 22:10, 16 February 2010 (UTC)


Anyone recall a discussion about this? Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 10:36, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikiproject Anglo-Saxon England[edit]

Hey all, we are proposing a new Wikiproject at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms. Please garnish you support if you are interested in supporting English and British History articles from 410-1066. Sadads (talk) 13:13, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Various writers and copyists conflated her with, or named her as Nimue, Viviane, Viviana, Vivienne, Elaine, Niniane, Nivian, Nyneve, Nimueh and other variations.[edit]

The Name Nimue, once carved into stone by the King while witnessing the Angels, Arthur meets the Godess of The Lake, the original stone with this name also tells about the celtic influences in the reincarnating life of King Arthur, who once created an ogham stone - the first written language of Ireland, letters have washed off till time of its first discovery, the name Nimue originaly meant a name of an ancient godess, who there fights to save Arthur, the name of this ancient Godess would ever be the same since ages before civilization and today, Her name also signifies the fundament of the pyramid which lays down in the earths crust hidden chambers, covered with stones, little hill called the Holy Mountain of Emer, where Gods of Heavens promised to build a pyramid for the Godess, so here Nimue - is a washed off on stone name Emer. The legend of King Arthur also should say that Arthur was through his unfortunate life a constant alcoholic as He was holding The Holy Grail, telling about the Curse of Avalon. Alcohol makes then why till today all information about Him seams very uncertain. The Knights of the Round Table Only did actually know what was going on in the blessed and reincarnated life of King Arthur called also - Avalon, and why the place where He died is wearing the same name, Arthur used to give names to places and once died in an ambush wounded with an arrow. In His last wish He named the Village with His own name- Avalon as He would know where to return to seek back His challenge. When they were pulling out the arrow, He asked the name of the Knight.- This fact of Arthurs complete madness known by an example of british humor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:12, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Round Table Found? 2010[edit]

Supposedly in Chester.

Thought about putting it on the Arthur talk page, but figured it would be better off here. Sorry it's a blog, but it includes links to the sources they used (and that could probably be used for a Wiki update ;) )

Please forgive my lack of log-in as I seen to have misplaced my credentials O_O VulpineLady (talk) 21:38, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

I don't know why Gidlow is quoted as claiming Gildas wrote about Arthur, when Gildas never mentions Arthur (Gildas has posted a blog confirming that he never wrote about Arthur [1]. This link [2] at least has some other commentary in it. There's a documentary on the History Channel Monday the 19th at 9pm. Dougweller (talk) 05:25, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
the issue isn't in who said what, the issue is the "discovery" of the Round Table. I get the "nitpick for accuracy" bit, I just wasn't sure if the Authurian Wikipedians had heard the news yet. (logged in YAY) VulpineLady (talk) 05:56, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Gidlow participates in a discussion commenting on an interesting blog piece here [3]. Dougweller (talk) 05:01, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Nice. Did anyone catch the History Channel show? A friend threatened to record it for me, but I managed to avoid it.--Cúchullain t/c 13:50, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Tristram and Isoude stained glass panels[edit]

I have created Tristram and Isoude stained glass panels and tagged it for this project - anyone want to assess it? Comments and suggestions welcome. - PKM (talk) 01:56, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Possible expansion of scope of the project[edit]

I have proposed possibly expanding the scope of this project, and a few others. For the purposes of centralized discussion, please see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Religion#Possible reorganization of some related projects. Thank you. John Carter (talk) 15:54, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Request for input in discussion forum[edit]

Given the closely linked subjects of the various religion, mythology, and philosophy groups, it seems to me that we might benefit from having some sort of regular topical discussion forum to discuss the relevant content. I have put together the beginnings of an outline for such discussion at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/2011 meeting, and would very much appreciate the input of any interested editors. I am thinking that it might run over two months, the first of which would be to bring forward and discuss the current state of the content, and the second for perhaps some more focused discussion on what, if any, specific efforts might be taken in the near future. Any and all input is more than welcome. John Carter (talk)

When I tried filling in the pronunciations at List of geological features on Mimas (which are named after Arthurian figures) I found that it's quite difficult to document many of them. I assume that they must have standardized Modern English pronunciations, even if some have more than one. We should have this at the Knights article too. Anyone know a ref? — kwami (talk) 17:07, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Proposed MOS for Religion[edit]

There is now a proposed general Manual of Style for Religion and other articles relating to ethoses or belief systems at Wikipedia:WikiProject Religion/Manual of style. Any input would be welcome. I personally believe at least one of the reasons why many articles in this field have been as contentious as they have been is because of lack of such guidelines, and would very much welcome any input from others to help come up with some generally acceptable solutions to some of these problems. John Carter (talk) 22:00, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

If Arthur existed, why doesn't Taliesin mention him?[edit]

Taliesin and Arthur should have lived at roughly the same place and time. Taliesin does talk about a battle in 583 so he should have known about Badon and Camlan. He loves to name-drop about historical events. If Bede supressed Arthur for religious reasons, we can hardly same the same about Taliesin. He should be in one or the other. To me this seems like strong evidence against Arthur's existence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:01, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

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)

wow, awesome article.Really looking forward to read more. Will read on...[edit]

I really enjoy the blog article. Really Cool.

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.
