RfC[edit] (talk) 14:41, 9 February 2018 (UTC) this is a senseless deletion threat, when all that is needed is to flag the issues in contention interlaced in the article! A blanket policy deleting valuable information is absurd! Leave it be, and wait for the corrections, while the flags remain in the text!

List of coins depicting the Commonwealth Games.[edit]

Has anyone thought about doing an article titled List of coins depicting the Commonwealth Games?

There is an article titled List of stamps depicting the Commonwealth Games, so the coin one would need to be done on similar lines. - ( (talk) 13:12, 15 December 2017 (UTC))

It's actually not a bad idea, you can always register an account and make it. If there's something I've learned from watching articles only be maintained by bots a decade after they were created because the primary authors left Wikipedia (such as Sema from Art-Hanoi) It's that if you're passionate about something that you should create the articles yourself. Stubs can stay stubs for years, and bad articles can often not improve so your best choice would be to work on it yourself. --Donald Trung (Talk 💬) (Sockpuppets 🎭) (Articles 📚) 08:37, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

New article - Atomic swap - Need help determining if topic is notable[edit]

Could someone help determine if this is a notable topic? I asked at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Numismatics/Cryptocurrency_task_force#New_article_-_Atomic_swap on 14 Jan, but there's been no response there. --Ronz (talk) 22:55, 24 January 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   07:50, 30 May 2018 (UTC)


Greetings to this community! Article Numista has been nominated for deletion. If you're interested in the discussion regarding whether this numismatic article should stay or be deleted from Wikipedia, please leave your thoughts on the topic @Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Numista. I think future of Numismatics articles should be in hands of Numismatics community. Thanks! --AndriiKhmelkov (talk) 00:51, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Five dollar conundrum[edit]

Input from someone more knowledgeable than I am is welcome at Talk:Hollow Horn Bear. Basically, there are conflicting sources regarding who was depicted on a turn-of-the-century US five dollar bill, and we need to resolve the issue one way or the other pending a POTD on August 2 if possible, or we may have to pull and reschedule the POTD appearance. Thanks in advance. GMGtalk 13:51, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

I've replied at the talk page mentioned.--Wehwalt (talk) 15:42, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
