Discussions about WikiProject tasks[edit]

Portal assessment[edit]

I have marked Wikipedia:WikiProject Portals/Assessment as historical since assessments are done by the subject-area WikiProjects, not by namespace area WikiProjects. Wikipedia:WikiProject Categories and Wikipedia:WikiProject Wikipedia-Books do not do assessments. UnitedStatesian (talk) 12:57, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

eraser Undone. Other stuff doesn't exist isn't a very good argument, and besides there are counter-examples like WP:Help Project. Unlike categories, portals can have a significant range of quality, from portals which barely (or don't even) pass WP:POG through to Featured portals – see also the extensive discussion around assessments [1]. Having assessments can help track of the overall state of things, and give the project goals to work towards (probably more so once the current cull of low-quality/mass-produced portals is completed or further progressed). Not to mention that the more "traditional" project assessments like "Project", "Template", "Category", etc are actually in use and not "historical". - Evad37 [talk] 14:23, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Discussions about new portals or specific portals[edit]


I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I couldn't find an obviously more suitable place. At the moment, Portal:Cornwall doesn't have any of the lead section of the article Cornwall. I've tried to transplant a working peice of script in from Portal:Money but it didn't work and I'm not at all competent with the wiki-code involved. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. Many thanks, Gazamp (talk) 18:58, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Pinging @Certes: is this because the Cornwall article has so much code at the top, that {{transclude lead excerpt}} doesn't work? I noticed the same issue in Portal:Computer science/Intro. UnitedStatesian (talk) 01:04, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@UnitedStatesian: Fixed in Cornwall. The high sheriff infobox data had a stray "{" which confused the parser (and the wrong year). Certes (talk) 10:33, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@UnitedStatesian and Certes: - Thanks both of you Face-smile.svg Gazamp (talk) 13:08, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Requests for Admin assistance[edit]

Portal:Seventh-day Adventist Church[edit]

Portal:Seventh-day Adventist Church/Selected article/4 This subpage shouldn't be included in Portal:Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Seventh-day Adventist Church doesn't believe in Premillennialism, look at article Seventh-day Adventist eschatology Having this subpage is very deceiving.Catfurball (talk) 20:38, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

  •  Done @Catfurball: I have changed the page to use a different article. Thanks for bringing the issue to our attention. UnitedStatesian (talk) 20:59, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

@UnitedStatesian: Portal:Seventh-day Adventist Church/Selected biography/5 had it's biography removed by User:Legacypac since the person was never a Seventh-day Adventist. It would be nice if a war veteran would replace the removed biography like Paul Nobuo Tatsuguchi; Harlon Block or Desmond Doss.Catfurball (talk) 16:50, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
