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.

--LINUX-.--- listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect --LINUX-.---. Since this is related to Linux, you may be interested in participating at the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Thanks, — Godsy (TALKCONT) 08:32, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Schily removing Linux specific notes on system calls[edit]

schily (talk · contribs) (Jörg Schilling, of cdrecord fame) has removed Linux specific details I added to open (system call).[1] I do not understand why these Linux-specific details can not be added, as they are absolutely necessary for making UNIX-like systems concurrent. I do not want to start a revert war, so I am hoping to start a discussion here. The majority of UNIX like systems are Linux systems. I maintain that covering Linux behavior is more important than documenting POSIX, if we had to choose. But we don't, we just have to qualify sentences with "this only works on Linux", like I did. Removal is unnecessary. Note that I am User:Ysangkok and also complained about Schily removing my Systemd edit (see above). -- (talk) 13:59, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

While it is fine to seek advice at places such as this if you are uncertain of your position, the first step in resolving almost all conflicts over content is to discuss the conflict with your opponent on the article talk page. Wikipedia is built around a model of collegiality and collaboration through discussion. If the other editor won't discuss, consider WP:DISCFAIL; if discussion happens, but fails then try dispute resolution (which generally will not be allowed without extensive prior discussion). Finally, since you have an account please do not edit without logging in. Regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 17:44, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Tput dead links[edit]

Hello. There are dead references on Tput. Please, check Talk:Tput. Thanks.--MisterSanderson (talk) 00:51, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

In fact, all the SGI links are dead: --Ysangkok (talk) 09:50, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Linux/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Linux.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Linux, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
