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 need your help
Hi metrologists, I ask for your help. I am stalked by two Chemists that unfortunately have no clue about metrology. I try to make sure that articles are written in correct metrological terminology. Now they are planing to ban me again (see here User_talk:Kkmurray/1). I hope you guys can see that his article Kendrick mass is full of incorrect language (even though it is all taken from reviewed papers) and that my article Kendrick (unit) is better.
Here you find the whole story of the current argument: Talk:Kendrick_mass.
We had an argument before on which they achieved to have me banned for one year. I still think this ban was incorrect. The argument was about a physical quantity in mass spectrometry, the mass-to-charge ratio. Some in the chemistry branch of mass spectrometry use a "dimensionless" m/z and my claim is that a mass-to-charge ratio by definition cannot be dimensionless and therefore needs a unit and that a symbol m/Q would be more appropriate. I partly won the argument because my article Thomson (unit) is still alive.
The deeper issue on this new argument is that many chemists seem not able to make the difference between a quantity Q = n * unit, and the numerical factor n of a quantity. Please check yourself and I would really appreciate your support here Talk:Kendrick_mass. Kehrli (talk) 31 October 2010
WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 9
Check out this month's issue of the WikiProject X newsletter, featuring the first screenshot of our new CollaborationKit software!
Wedgewood scale has some math wrong
The article on Wedgewood scale mentions "240 steps of 54°C" but the values given for 27°W, 28°W, and 32°W would indicate steps of ~72.2216 °C. (I found this because I implemented a wedgewood to celsius converter as something of a joke.) So I'm not sure what the source is on that 54 but given that the other celsius numbers are consistent I suspect those are more accurate.
Apologies, I've never commented on Wikipedia before and don't know if this is the right way to go about making such a comment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:33, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report
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, will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Measurement/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Measurement.
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 m:User talk:Community Tech bot.for his original , 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 Measurement, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at
Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
Unit symbols discussion
There is a discussion about the definition of unit symbols at Template talk:Infobox unit#Abuse of symbol parameter that some of those interested in this topic might be interested in. -- DeFacto (talk). 06:29, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
There is a proposal to merge Vertical metre into Metres above sea level. Please feel free to join in the discussion at Talk:Metres above sea level#Vertical metre merge. --Bermicourt (talk) 13:42, 29 December 2017 (UTC)
