Feedback please - Talk:Collaborative software[edit]

Hello, I have started a thread about the current status - and possible removal - of a vendor list in Collaborative software. The post is here. The list has been part of the article since 2014, so any additional feedback would be appreciated. GermanJoe (talk) 15:06, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

With no objections so far, I have removed the list. The flaws of this list are just too many for a policy-compliant fix imo. GermanJoe (talk) 16:34, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Notice about adminship to participants at this project[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, may have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate. Many thanks and best wishes, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 05:40, 6 March 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 Software/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Software.

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 Software, 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)

Thanks, GenQuest "Talk to Me" 08:07, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

This just my two cents: We have a List of KDE applications. We can use a template similar to {{Japanese episode list}} to list each app with its icons, screenshots and one or two paragraphs of description. (Stress on "similar to".)
