Proposal to make redirects for area code pages
Hello, all! Whenever I want to look at pages such as, say, Area code 708, I often type in the search engine "708 (area code)". The search returns no pages, but has relevant results in its search feature. Therefore, for me and other people who would search under such a sequence of words, I would like to propose that a [number] (area code) be created to redirect to Area code [number]. This way, it would be easier to navigate and research information and histories depending on the given area code. This would make researching area codes on Wikipedia easier and smoother for interested parties, as the redirects would lead directly to the demanded pages, instead of a search page.
- I'm not quite clear if you like the current results you see when searching on "708 (area code)"? If so, I believe creating the redirect will prevent this result from appearing, since you'll be directed to the Area code 708 page. Personally, I prefer to let search engines do their job rather than create redirects for purposes of searching, but I appreciate some people have different views. For this particular case, after searching for the first area code readers should know the naming convention and adjust their searches accordingly, particularly since it has fewer characters and less punctuation. isaacl (talk) 02:56, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
- Area code 708 is the first result in an "708 (area code)" search. Search is doing its job. Maybe I'm not clear on what the problem is. There has been a 708 area code redirect since 2007. How many different variations are necessary? ~Kvng (talk) 01:53, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Merger discussion for Computation of radiowave attenuation in the atmosphere
An article that interests the projet—Computation of radiowave attenuation in the atmosphere—has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Pierre cb (talk) 14:15, 3 March 2019 (UTC)
A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
