Minutemen chronology[edit]

Does anyone know the exact release dates (or at least months) of the Minutemen albums My First Bells, The Politics of Time, Tour-Spiel, Georgeless, and Project Mersh so we can finalize chronology? Jasper the Friendly Punk (talk) 15:35, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Looking for FA support for Courtney Love article[edit]

Hello all, I've worked quite extensively on the Courtney Love article, and have nominated it for FA status several times but have failed to garner enough supporters to further it beyond the nomination process. I believe the article absolutely fulfills the criteria, and I have gotten supports for promotion each time, just not enough. If anyone would mind looking it over and leaving comments/supporting if you feel so, I'd be very grateful. There does not seem to be many people willing to do reviews of it during the nomination process—I know she is a divisive figure—but I'm hoping I can gather some support to get an FA promotion. Thank you! --Drown Soda (talk) 05:34, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Punk music/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Punk music.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Punk music, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Link Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains into Pat the Bunny or add other bands.[edit]

Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains is neither a current band nor the most notable of bands fronted by Pat "The Bunny" Schneeweis. I propose that either the page for Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains be linked into the Pat "The Bunny" Schneeweis page as the other bands do, or new articles should be made for Wingnut Dishwashers Union and Ramshackle Glory. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wesborden (talkcontribs) 02:00, 9 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   11:00, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

FYI: "Is Punk Globe a reliable source?"[edit]

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

I just created a new section at the Reliable sources noticeboard titled "Is Punk Globe a reliable source?" (permanent link), which is relevant to music, especially punk rock. If you have any input, please participate there. Thank you. —Nøkkenbuer (talkcontribs) 23:36, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
