Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:16, 4 June 2016 (UTC)


It would be appreciated if more editors would keep an eye on Skully (helmet). It seems to be attracting a lot of edits that are not up to this project's quality standards for sourcing. I'm going to take a break from it for a bit to avoid the appearance of WP:OWN. - Brianhe (talk) 22:23, 18 July 2016 (UTC)


Can anyone identify the motorcycle on the right of this image? File:The people's war book; history, cyclopaedia and chronology of the great world war (1919) (14778712601).jpg If so please add that category to the image. Thanks ww2censor (talk) 14:30, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Here's the original context. No info in caption. I don't think it's a Douglas or Triumph. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 18:21, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
It's a Sunbeam - I've added the cat. Several things weird going on in that image - what looks chain drive to a rear brake drum/sprocket with a rigid rod actuation by a rocking, organ-pedal footboard, all with a belt-drive pulley or faux-rim brake on the other side. Don't think it's changeable hub-gear ratios? Looks a bit too slim and flimsy for that. I'll add it to me list.--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 23:32, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, I knew there would be some more knowledgeable editors around. ww2censor (talk) 23:20, 10 October 2016 (UTC)


I have been looking at the Honda VTR1000F page and I feel the page needs to progress. I've made a few edits , but most of them were instantly reverted. It would be good for other biker Wikipedians to have their input; so, if you have a moment, why not take a look at the page and see what you could add? Arrivisto (talk) 17:14, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Motorcycling Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 18:04, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Engineering Design (Calculations) of Motorcycles Page[edit]

I wonder if we can have a page dedicated to desing of two wheelers, The engineering design part, on Calculations & other design parameters. Am an Automotive engineer myself and believe will help the ton of people innovating in the personal mobility space. Crank2giri (talk) 14:38, 4 February 2017 (UTC)Giridhar
