Coordinators' working group

Hi! I'd like to draw your attention to the new WikiProject coordinators' working group, an effort to bring both official and unofficial WikiProject coordinators together so that the projects can more easily develop consensus and collaborate. This group has been created after discussion regarding possible changes to the A-Class review system, and that may be one of the first things discussed by interested coordinators.

All designated project coordinators are invited to join this working group. If your project hasn't formally designated any editors as coordinators, but you are someone who regularly deals with coordination tasks in the project, please feel free to join as well. — Delievered by §hepBot (Disable) on behalf of the WikiProject coordinators' working group at 07:00, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Article alerts

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.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Thanks. — Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 09:52, 15 March, 2009 (UTC)

Wood warping

Considerable work is needed on this neglected, nearly orphaned stub—an important issue for the woodworker for sure. At present there is no description about what wood warping is or why it happens. I added an illustration; it needs a good intro & solid description of the topic, and there should be a linked synopsis in the lumber article.

Any feedback on the illustration? I tried to make it as clear as possible, though I am just learning SketchUp. Dforest (talk) 06:30, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

I added a short description of the types of warping. Dforest (talk) 07:36, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Wood technology

I am a retired Lecturer in woodcrafts, a past assessor for London Institute of City and Guilds, Author [1] and Web Master of [2] I'm also for the records an accredited Master Joiner and Fellow of the Institute of Carpenters.
I would be quite happy to expand some of my articles to help the project. All the images are owned by me.
Have a look at my website and suggest which articles you would like me to contribute to WikiProject and I'll have a look at it? Start with this, but there are more you may be interested in? [3]
You seem also to have neglected some UK Institutes? The Institute of Carpenters (IOC) [4]

Float is a disambiguation page and has a couple of entries for float tools, only one with an article. And that article is overly narrow. Expand? Contribute photos? (Nothing on Commons now.) --Una Smith (talk) 04:39, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
