Unreferenced Articles project collaboration[edit]

Hi all! The Unreferenced Articles project is looking to make connections with editors and projects who would be interested in assisting in clearing out the backlog (dating back to January 2007!) of unreferenced articles. Currently there are over 142,000 - I guarantee there is something that touches every WikiProject in some way. WP:URA has been semi-active for some time now but we are getting more activity and are now trying to raise awareness of our goals and aims to keep the momentum going. I was wondering if any WikiProject coordinators would be interested in discussing collaborations, i.e. teaming up with WikiProject:Malaysia to cite a number of highway articles, Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports for players and tournament results, etc. 142,000+ articles is too much for one fledgling project to handle but as more projects get involved, I'm sure the number will drop rapidly. I have reached out to the Signpost WikiProjects desk to put a spotlight on the project and we are thinking of holding a community drive as well. If anyone is interested in participating, please sign up and use 'Wikipedia:WikiProject Unreferenced articles; you can help!' as the edit summary to boost awareness among other editors. We look forward to working with you! Kazamzam (talk) 16:09, 10 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Collectively, we can all contribute to make it happen. Raskoby947 (talk) 08:58, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Task force assessment[edit]

Is there a way to allow a task force to set a different priority for an article than the parent project has? For example, the new lichen task force would like to rate some articles as being more important for the task force than would be appropriate for WP:FUNGI overall. (This is primarily to keep us focused initially on the most important articles to bring up to GA/FA standards.) MeegsC (talk) 10:18, 29 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MeegsC: Yes, it is very much possible, see the code at Special:Diff/1101799526. It categorised as low-importance for WP Fungi, but high-importance for the lichen task force. In cases where lichen-importance= is not set, it will default to the importance rating of WP Fungi. However, a template code change may be made at {{WikiProject Fungi}}, so that, if lichen-importance= is not set, it will go to Category:Unknown-importance lichen task force articles or something like that, which will ease future rating.

Proposed merger of WikiProject Dutch municipalities into WikiProject Netherlands as a task force[edit]

Hello everyone, it has been proposed that Wikipedia:WikiProject Dutch municipalities be merged into Wikipedia:WikiProject Netherlands as a task force, due to inactivity. The relevant discussion may be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Dutch municipalities#Proposed merger into WikiProject Netherlands as a task force and interested editors may participate in that discussion. Thank you! CX Zoom[he/him] (let's talk • {CX}) 22:02, 1 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inactivity of the multimodal project wiki[edit]

Hello, I came to activate this project considering that the wiki of the multimodal project was disabled, how is it? Does it require permission? AHEJJWILEMAMALIDGED (talk) 09:14, 20 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @AHEJJWILEMAMALIDGED: Sorry, we're unable to understand you. Can you please be a bit clearer? Thanks! CX Zoom[he/him] (let's talk • {CX}) 10:44, 20 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The wiki is a multi-faceted multi-year project that is inactive If this project wiki is disabled, there may not be much progress in polygons, geometric volumes, etc That's why I said to let me start this wiki project.

It is probably better to try and seek help within an existing and active Wikiproject, unless you find other users who agree a more specific page will be valuable. CMD (talk) 08:43, 23 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
