Motorcycle racing portal[edit]

Due to several years of inactivity I've tagged the Portal:Motorcycle racing as needing updating. Portals with no update or talk page activity for 4 months are considered inactive. There have been no update to the news section since 2008 and the current Moto GP standings have not been updated since 2013. If someone want to take it on and continue to update the portal with content, please do so and remove the inactive tag. ww2censor (talk) 22:25, 7 January 2016 (UTC)

Project classes[edit]

I wonder if there's interest in the project adding Draft, Template, Category, Redirect and other classes. Currently, all those articles (including draftspace ones) are all stored in Category:NA-Class Motorcycling articles together which is over 1200 pages. It would be easier to find drafts and other useful pages if separated. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 19:53, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, I just always assumed the category structure was mandatory. Something established Wikipedia-wide that we can't change if we want to use the article class system. But I agree, breaking these up into specific categories would be a good idea, if it's possible. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 20:06, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't recall where the discussion is but Draft articles don't appear in the project assessment table as such. If you select the 3 items that are quality/importance NA / ??? you get this result and if you add the text Draft: as a prefix to the article name, the draft article is then revealed. For some reason the assessment tool cannot properly deal with Draft articles but I don't recall why. I think most of the NA / NA listings are categories and redirects (many or maybe most don't actually have a redirect code on the talk page where the assessment banner is), and I'm not sure they can be separated out either. Personally I think assessing a redirect is pointless to any project and it is certainly of no use if it does not actually redirect. If you look at User:WP 1.0 bot/Tables/Project/Ireland you will see more separate classes than we have and there the drafts are listed under Other / ???. Which ones would you like to see? I'll ask someone who might know. ww2censor (talk) 23:06, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
