Request Review - The Phenomenauts

Hello, I'd like to request an assessment please for The Phenomenauts. I see the Assessment FAQ mentions I can edit it myself, but I recently made a large number of changes and I'd like to have someone independent take a look.

This article has been largely untouched for the past 6-10 years, and I recently made a number of edits. I have added: 109 references; five new free images; 3 new non-free images; four sample audio clips (all within fair use sizes); subtitles for the audio clips; and a band member timeline chart. I have added roughly 4,000 words to the article. I have grouped it into sections, and tried to do several passes at copyediting. I have tried to make it follow the WikiProject Musicians article guidelines. I would like to propose it could now be rated as at least B class. Feedback is quite welcome. I created a feedback section on the Talk page to help. Thanks! --Culix (talk) 05:55, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject

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   07:28, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Requesting reassessment: Eleanor Roosevelt College

Hello! I have recently done a lot of work on Eleanor Roosevelt College, and feel that it should be reassessed. I am not a member of the project, so I do not feel comfortable reassessing it myself. Thank you! -Hemarcello (talk) 02:48, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

@Hemarcello:Thanks for the efforts to improve the article. I have elevated the article to C class as I believe it does not meet all B class criteria. I hope this helps, and if there is anything I can do to support efforts in content improvement within the scope of WikiProject San Diego please feel free to contact me.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 17:45, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Expert attention

This is a notice about Category:Los Angeles articles needing expert attention, which might be of interest to your WikiProject. It will take a while before the category is populated. There might be as few as one page in the category, or zero if someone has removed the expert request tag from the page.  — Mr. Guye (talk) (contribs)  20:06, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
