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.

Category merger - Rawlinsonian Professors of Anglo-Saxon / Rawlinson and Bosworth Professors of Anglo-Saxon[edit]

In 1916, the position of Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon was renamed Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon. We have one article (the former name redirecting to the new) but two categories for the pre- and post-1916 professors. Should they be merged or kept as they are? See Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2015 January 26#Category:Rawlinsonian Professors of Anglo-Saxon - all contributions welcome. BencherliteTalk 01:07, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello from the Bodleian Libraries[edit]

Hello Oxonian Wikipedians, I'm overjoyed to be the Bodleian Libraries' Wikimedian In Residence and I hope I get to meet all of you in the coming months. I'm commuting from Bristol and staying over in Oxford on some nights, so if anyone wants to get together for a drink on an evening mid-week, that'd be ideal for me. I intend to be at the upcoming Oxford meetups (see wmuk:Events).

At the moment I'm meeting people to examine possibilities for content sharing, and setting up a workshop for staff. Later in the year I'll be running some editathons around women in science and I think there is a lot more scope for public events. There's a lot of appreciation in the University for the work being done here on Wikipedia, and I hope we can bring the communities closer together. Project activities will be recorded at Wikipedia:GLAM/Bodleian. Feel free to contact me on my Talk page or via

I note User:Bencherlite's request above and I'll see what I can do to help. MartinPoulter (talk) 09:32, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
