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.

Background[edit]

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)

Photo Request for Titletown District[edit]

I am working on expanding Titletown District and would love to have some photos of the new park and development. Does anyone live in the Green Bay region who would be willing to grab some photos next time they drive by? Thanks! « Gonzo fan2007 (talk) @ 14:41, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

New Article Possibility[edit]

Would anyone be up for creating an article on one Andrew Elmore? I book I have mentioned that he was a member of the Assembly around 1860 and it sounds like he had both Elmore, Wisconsin and Elmore Township, Faribault County, Minnesota named after him. -- Dolotta (talk) 05:40, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Updated pictures[edit]

Hey, I went to Forest Home Cemetery today and took pictures, I took the liberty up updating the old low resolution pictures from 2006 on Valentin Blatz, Joseph Schlitz and Byron Kilbourn with new ones. Pepsiwithcoke (talk) 23:27, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
