Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the considerations at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and maybe even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Urdu Wiki[edit]

I think we should also develop the Urdu Wiki. Any thoughts? Masterpha (talk) 12:40, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Pashto names of colleges[edit]

User:PakGov recently changed the Pashto names of various colleges, for example Jinnah Medical College and Khyber Girls Medical College. I reverted them here because I'm pretty sure that there's a difference in Pashto between Khyber Medical College and Khyber Medical University, but I couldn't verify the Pashto names of the other colleges I checked. One option would be to simply remove the Pashto names altogether unless there's a reliable source. Thoughts? Huon (talk) 23:43, 27 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   07:50, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Content discussion / BLP issue that someone here may take an interest in[edit]

This discussion will be difficult to fully resolve without the help of a native speaker, and so I'm hoping that bringing it to attention here will be a good way to get some help.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 12:31, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Saraiki castes[edit]

Hi, can anyone take a look at Saraiki Castes, created yesterday by a new editor and possibly based entirely on OR – and decide what to do with it? Thanks, — kashmīrī TALK 23:09, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
