Slots open for important instrument makers on level-5 vital article list[edit]

My interest focus is on stringed instruments, so I don't feel qualified to populate the list. But right now the list of articles that every Wikipedia should have is building. There is a place for musical instrument makers. So far there is a piano maker, a saxophone inventor, violin, bass and mandolin luthiers. There are going to be a very few slots available, and who occupies thoses slots will be debated, once room runs out. The list is at Wikipedia:Vital articles/Level/5/People/Artists, musicians, and composers.Jacqke (talk) 17:37, 19 May 2018 (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.


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   10:59, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Question about guitar[edit]

Can someone please advise me of what kind of guitar she is playing? Gnosis (talk) 20:25, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

List of music museums[edit]

Please note that there is a new music list, see List of music museums. Please give your opinion too whether this list has been referenced enough. See the talk page for that. Ymnes (talk) 16:46, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

The question is not if it has been referenced enough but whether it should only contain museums that have their own pages on Wikipedia. --Dom from Paris (talk) 17:27, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
