WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.


Thanks, and happy editing!

Copyright Violation Detection - EranBot Project[edit]

A new copy-paste detection bot is now in general use on English Wikipedia. Come check it out at the EranBot reporting page. This bot utilizes the Turnitin software (ithenticate), unlike User:CorenSearchBot that relies on a web search API from Yahoo. It checks individual edits rather than just new articles. Please take 15 seconds to visit the EranBot reporting page and check a few of the flagged concerns. Comments welcome regarding potential improvements. These likely copyright violations can be searched by WikiProject categories. Use "control-f" to jump to your area of interest (if such a copyvio is present).--Lucas559 (talk) 16:09, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

The Newsletter[edit]

I would like to cancel my subscription to the Newsletter. I am not working on Yorkshire very much at the moment. The latest edition (Auguat 2015) has a bug in it which is freezing everything in Wikipedia every time I go to read it or anything else which may be in my inbox. This may have something to do with Windows 10 which I have just installed.

Can someone who knows more about the computer language used to compose the Newsletter see what't gone wrong with the latest issue. Thanks. --Oldontarian (talk) 07:07, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Cannot see a problem but then I have not got Windows 10. Have you the same problem trying to open a previous version? Keith D (talk) 12:15, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

GA review for Auden[edit]

Watchlist[edit]

Just to let you know, for those using the project watchlist, that it is about 2 months out of date. I have been unable to run the existing scripts to update as they appear to randomly remove entries. I tried upgrading to the latest Pywikibot but cannot login with this due to missing code. I have had no response from my query over this as yet so unless we have any Pywikibot experts on the project then will have to wait until I can get some answer.

Scarborough railway station[edit]

Just a heads up that there is a RM discussion at Talk:Scarborough railway station Jeni (talk) 05:42, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Wetwang University?[edit]

I'm working on a User:PamD/sandbox/List of fictional English universities (which of course includes Poppleton University which has its own article), and want to include Wetwang. (There are already List of fictional Oxford colleges and several similar, just nothing for redbrick and plateglass unis like Rummidge, etc).

My other half remembers his parents reading about it in a column in the Yorkshire Post, but I can find no trace in the online files, nor anywere else online beyond the tantalisingly similar My in-laws used to take the Yorkshire Post (both dead many years ago - I am going back more than 35 years here) and there was a column in the paper which frequently refered to Wetwang. No doubt the columnist whoever it was is long gone but he created Wetwang University and referred to it frequently! in a "comments" section of a BBC page "Paying Tribute to Richard Whiteley". Maybe I need to wander into Leeds Central Library some time and look at full text on paper or microfilm! Or was it perhaps The Dalesman and both lots of parents mis-remembered it?

There's no mention of it in the Wetwang article, not even as "Wetwang in popular culture".

Any ideas? PamD 09:47, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

And yes, there's a facebook page for the University - but it seems only to have one front page, no content or links, so doesn't help much! PamD 12:54, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

the composer himself wanted to conduct this magnificant, completely forgotten oratorio - but he died in 1882! This way a very big fiasco happened!

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Yorkshire Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 18:19, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Theatre Royal, Wakefield > Theatre Royal Wakefield[edit]

Hi There,

Please forgive if this is not the right place for this. I am the marketing manager at Theatre Royal Wakefield. Our page listing currently has a comma, after Royal - which is incorrect. How do I get this fixed, I can't seem to edit it myself. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kealeywoodward (talkcontribs) 13:10, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Kealeywoodward Hi there. This is a disambiguator; there are more than 30 Theatre Royals in the United Kingdom and Wikipedia (like most other encyclopedias) disambiguates between those by writing it as Theatre Royal, Wakefield, Theatre Royal, York etc. This makes it eminently more searchable for the general public.
If you look at the text in the lead section it reads "The Theatre Royal Wakefield is a theatre in Wakefield, England, which dates back to 1894". In this there is no comma; it is merely there in the title to aid searching, help with disambiguation and also follows the naming conventions that Wikipedia adheres to. Regards.

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Yorkshire/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Yorkshire.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Yorkshire, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Driffield Beck merge to West Beck[edit]

I have proposed to merge Driffield Beck into West Beck; same stream, just under different names. Driffield Beck is completely without sources and West Beck has several sources and a routemap/diagram, hence why I propose to put Driffield Beck into West Beck. Objections, thoughts etc can be placed here Talk:West Beck#Merger proposal. Thanks. The joy of all things (talk) 23:18, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
