Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Hydrology/water chemistry on the River Tone[edit]

Can anyone help? The River Tone article is currently on GA review at Talk:River Tone/GA1. Although many of the reviewers comments have been dealt with, I have been unable to find any reliable sources with information about the hydrology/water chemistry of the river, which the reviewer sees as essential. Can anyone help?— Rod talk 16:58, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Listing all the rivers of a country in the category "Rivers of [Country]"[edit]

There is a discussion at Category talk:Rivers of Spain, on which is the best solution:

  • either listing all the rivers of a country in the category "Rivers of [Country]," as for example in France and Portugal,
  • or including them only in sub-categories and listing the rivers in list pages, as for example in the United Kingdom, the USA, Ireland and Germany.

Please comment there if you have any views...Jokulhlaup (talk) 17:24, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

100-year flood[edit]

I would value additional perspectives in this discussion on appropriate material for inclusion within subject article. Thewellman (talk) 21:34, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Rafallo River[edit]

The article claims to be a "fictitious" tributary, without mentioning who made it up. Should it be nominated for deletion? The Average Wikipedian (talk) 12:16, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
