Help with a review[edit]

Hi,

I have proposed a substantial redraft of the article How (philosophy). I have a COI as a paid consultant to the author of the book. I'd appreciate it if someone happened to have time to look at this request, at: Talk:How_(book)#Request_for_review_of_Redraft

Many thanks, BC1278 (talk) 20:59, 4 May 2018 (UTC)BC1278

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.

Background[edit]

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)

Major changes at Philosophical skepticism[edit]

Philosophical skepticism (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

I just came across this article during my editing and discovered that it has been undergoing major changes by multiple student editors who joined in January 2018. I have no comment on their contributions, in part because I have not extensively reviewed them myself, but it may be helpful if more are watching this article and others review the article's recent history of changes. I will do so soon if I have the time and already plan to help clean the article up to conform to the Manual of Style. Thanks. —Nøkkenbuer (talkcontribs) 22:01, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Could people please take a look at Instrumental and intrinsic value?

Attention from additional editors might be able to improve the quality of this article.
