I discussed on irc with several Administrators that it's wrong to allow moderators to exclude anyone they want from the project, it looks like owning - which is Wikipedia against; I suggest a removal of that. Does every participant agree? --HolyRomanEmperor 14:37, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I second that. Carl Kenner 18:39, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

I agree. Хајдук Еру (Talk || Contributions) 08:45, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Serbs Portal

I was looking through wikipedia, and I found that there is a Serbs portal; however, it hasn't been updated since January. I was wondering if we could update it once a month, to keep the material fresh and perhaps break some stereotypes that have been, and are being perpetuated by detractors, chiefly the media and Hollywood.

I dare not change the silly rules without approval from the Moderators - however, none noticed my suggestion. --HolyRomanEmperor 19:21, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Contributions to the project

We need more people to contribute to the project! Don't tell me WP:SER is dead? Isn't anyone even using the to-do list ;)? Flag of Serbia.svg Krytan talk 02:01, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Serbian musicians/singers

Couldn't we expand the many articles of Serbian singers/musicians? Most of the articles are stubs.

You don't have to ask ;) If you feel something should be expanded, especially a stub, and the fact that it relates with the project, go for it. --Flag of Serbia.svg Krytan talk 03:21, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Tamo Daleko

Some people want to delete article about famous Serbian song Tamo Daleko. I wrote as much as I know about it, but we need English translation and some more info. If you know anything about it, please edit it or join the discussion. Stefanmg 12:24, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Project directory

Hello. The WikiProject Council has recently updated the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory. This new directory includes a variety of categories and subcategories which will, with luck, potentially draw new members to the projects who are interested in those specific subjects. Please review the directory and make any changes to the entries for your project that you see fit. There is also a directory of portals, at User:B2T2/Portal, listing all the existing portals. Feel free to add any of them to the portals or comments section of your entries in the directory. The three columns regarding assessment, peer review, and collaboration are included in the directory for both the use of the projects themselves and for that of others. Having such departments will allow a project to more quickly and easily identify its most important articles and its articles in greatest need of improvement. If you have not already done so, please consider whether your project would benefit from having departments which deal in these matters. It is my hope that all the changes to the directory can be finished by the first of next month. Please feel free to make any changes you see fit to the entries for your project before then. If you should have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you. B2T2 17:03, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

A mere Suggestion

I suggest all members take a look at the Order I've established at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Belgrade. It failed because there aren't many members, and those who are members are mostly inactive - but it could work here; this WikiProject has a lot more members (and luckly, they're active). It might also be a way to prevent the fate of Belgrade's WikiProject catching this one. Just a suggestion, any opinion on how I dealt with the situation? --PaxEquilibrium 23:51, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia Day Awards

Hello, all. It was initially my hope to try to have this done as part of Esperanza's proposal for an appreciation week to end on Wikipedia Day, January 15. However, several people have once again proposed the entirety of Esperanza for deletion, so that might not work. It was the intention of the Appreciation Week proposal to set aside a given time when the various individuals who have made significant, valuable contributions to the encyclopedia would be recognized and honored. I believe that, with some effort, this could still be done. My proposal is to, with luck, try to organize the various WikiProjects and other entities of wikipedia to take part in a larger celebrartion of its contributors to take place in January, probably beginning January 15, 2007. I have created yet another new subpage for myself (a weakness of mine, I'm afraid) at User talk:Badbilltucker/Appreciation Week where I would greatly appreciate any indications from the members of this project as to whether and how they might be willing and/or able to assist in recognizing the contributions of our editors. Thank you for your attention. Badbilltucker 21:25, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
