mormon temple in Panama City[edit]

There is a Mormon temple in Panama City. Should the article belong to this WikiProject? LDS-SPA1000 (talk) 19:16, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

If by that you mean should you add the banner for the national project, yes. You actually should feel free do that with all the temples, because they by definition deal with the articles related to that country, which includes any notable buildings within its borders.

Photo request: Copa Airlines HQ[edit]

Would someone mind photographing the headquarters of Copa Airlines in Panama City? WhisperToMe (talk) 02:02, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Panama/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Panama/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:23, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Richard Fifer[edit]

People who can read the Spanish language sources and are familiar with WP:BLP are encouraged to help ensure the Richard Fifer article accurately represents the full perspective and impact of this person. Thanks! -- The Red Pen of Doom 16:46, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Presidents and first ladies[edit]

After working on a few articles about Panamanian media, I've noticed that the articles about post-Noriega Panamanian presidents appear to be low-quality (undetailed and mostly unsourced), and I'm starting a personal clean-up drive for these. I'm also hoping to write stub articles for first ladies and some vice presidents while I have all this bio material in front of me. If anybody's interested in checking over my work (or better yet, helping to write, I'm starting with Guillermo Endara and Ricardo Arias Calderón and working my way forward.

Languages in censuses and Race and ethnicity in censuses[edit]

Pleas add information about this country to this articles.--Kaiyr (talk) 05:43, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Category:Order of Vasco Núñez de Balboa has been nominated for discussion[edit]

Category:Order of Vasco Núñez de Balboa, which is within the scope of this WikiProject, has been nominated for deletion. A discussion is taking place to see if it abides with the categorization guidelines. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page. Thank you.

WikiProject Panama template[edit]

I've created a dedicated banner template for WikiProject Panama ({{WikiProject Panama}}) and proposed deprecating the use of the Panama task force parameter in the {{WikiProject Central America}} template. This should better align WikiProject Panama with the WikiProject guidelines. It will also give the project more flexibility and autonomy, for example, allowing WikiProject Panama to have its own task forces if desired. If you have any thoughts about this change, please join the discussion at Template talk:WikiProject Central America. Kaldari (talk) 03:29, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to edit[edit]

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   07:51, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format[edit]

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.
