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.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

creating a language link on ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV_Linux[edit]

Hi! I had translated AV_Linux (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV_Linux) on russian language (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV_Linux) but can't save a correction in a language-list (in list of language there no russian).
Bot says:
"An error occurred while saving. Your changes could not be completed.
Details
The link ruwiki:AV Linux is already used by item Q24175999. You may remove it from Q24175999 if it does not belong there or merge the items if they are about the exact same topic."
Take attention: "AV_Linux_on_russian" is a wrong page and now is under deleting; only "AV Linux" is right. Help, please. Thank you. Che-buran (talk) 10:00, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

It should be okay now. - Champion (talk) (contribs) (Formerly TheChampionMan1234) 06:49, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Input on proposed project requested[edit]

Hi everyone, I have proposed a project called "Wikidistros" over at Meta to provide an open alternative to DistroWatch hosted as a wiki as well as a place for distros that may not fit the WP:GNG. Any comment would be appreciated. See more at m:Wikidistros. - Champion (talk) (contribs) (Formerly TheChampionMan1234) 06:53, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Reliable sources[edit]

Is there a working list of vetted/reliable sources for Linux-related articles? I keep a custom Google search of relevant sites and want to improve my Linux coverage. (Please {{ping}} me) I am no longer watching this page—ping if you'd like a response czar 15:26, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
