Lunar zenith line?[edit]

A large number of recent edits (Special:Contributions/Terriffic_Dunker_Guy) are adding links to lunar zenith line (and also forms at Lunar Zenith Line). I'm no selenologist, but this isn't a term I recognise, or can easily find a definition for.

Should we have this link? If so, we need a stub article there, just to give the definition. Also we shouldn't have the capitalised forms, per usual MOS rules.

He is just referring to 0 degrees longitude on the moon. There is no need for a page, and frankly there is no need to make up this term when the infobox for the crater tells you the longitude. I'm going to revert these edits.

A request for the creation of an article titled the "Lunar equator"[edit]

A request should be made, a possible proposal of an article titled the lunar equator may be put.

As with the article on the Earth's equator which displays the tables of places and oceans that are crossed by the equator. For the moon, it should display some of the info as well as table of craters, mountains and other selenographic features on that page. Info will be added on the planned article similar to the one on the Earth's equator including views of the Earth up to about 59% of the area in that part. Also references and geowiki links will be put, on the geowiki part, on each crater, the location by latitude that is located on that equator, the same as to geo features on the Earth.

Other than this proposed article, the request for the creation of the lunar 90 east and west has been removed. Also a possible request for the creation of the articles Lunar 45th parallel north and south may be made. As that to 45 N and S on Earth, it will also contain info and table for the lunar 45 N and S alongside reference. Terriffic Dunker Guy (talk) 23:22, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Will you start this as a section of Selenography? Jim.henderson (talk) 11:04, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.

Background[edit]

On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:48, 30 May 2018 (UTC)
