WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   08:00, 30 May 2018 (UTC)


Meunier is no longer called "Pinot Meunier" as the Pinot varieties and Meunier have recently been shown to be of a different origin/genotypes. This should be reflected by the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rmariboe (talkcontribs) 16:48, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry for a late response, but which recent research are you referring to, in order to support that claim? The entry for Pinot Meunier in Wine Grapes (the "grape bible") is Pinot Meunier and so is its prime name in the Vitis International Variety Catalogue (I just checked). Champagne organizations often use "Meunier", to avoid confusion, or to reserve the Pinot name for ditto Noir, but that's more a marketing thing than a reliable source for this variety's proper name.

Bhutan wine[edit]

Could editors with an interest in the subject of Bhutan wine please assess the clean-up edits I've made to this article, and read the annotations I have moved from it onto its Talk page? The veracity of the page's assertions has obviously been questioned in the past, but I am unqualified to make a fair assessment. In essence: should this article be AFD-ed, or is the source OK as a WP:RS? Many thanks. Nick Moyes (talk) 22:59, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

I think it's enough for a stub. The disclaimers you removed were longer than the body of the article. ~Anachronist (talk) 01:49, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Candida blankii[edit]

Our favorite yeast? Probably not. But no pretense of compliance with WP:Before. 7&6=thirteen () 18:50, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

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.
