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.

I subscribed the project to the bot and have transcluded and linked the alerts page on the main WikiProject page. —PaleoNeonate – 08:25, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
A link to the assessment log was also added at the bottom of the assessment page, which allows to track changes. A future possibility would be to create a sidebar with those tools. —PaleoNeonate – 08:36, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
The article BackSlash Linux was recently created. Since it was previously deleted per the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/BackSlash Linux, I thought it might qualify for WP:CSD#G4, but the reviewing admin said the text is substantially different from the deleted version. Also, there appears to be a conflict of interest issue with one of the article's authors. So I'm just bringing this to the attention of this WikiProject so that it can be reviewed by editors experienced in this area and they can determined what (if anything) needs to be done with this article. Thank you. Deli nk (talk) 16:05, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
