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.

The Summerfield (Edgbaston) entry seems a bit short and lacks any information on the park besides the link in the footer. I took 2 pictures of the old bandstand when I was there. Taken on my phone so the quality won't be perfect but not bad. I presently live in that area. I could add some info maybe based on paraphrased research but I'm not completely familiar with the formatting on Wikipedia.
- @Dragon38gv: Your additions would be welcome; they can always be reformatted, and you'll be able to see how, for future reference. The most important thing, though, is that you cite your sources. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:29, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.
A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at http://184.108.40.206/~dispenser/cgi-bin/topic_points.py?banner=WikiProject_West_Midlands
