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.

Why is Tupac and his mother on the political asylum list?

What proof or evidence is there that Tupac Shakur and his mother were granted political asylum in Cuba? I only see references/sources for his Aunt Assata Shakur. Why are they on this list?

Added One Hundred Days Government

I added One Hundred Days Government as a translation of es:Gobierno de los Cien Días, but the original is weak, unreferenced, incomplete, and doesn't measure up in style and encyclopedic quality, so the English version needs a lot of work. Collaborators are welcome to join in. Mathglot (talk) 10:30, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

People might also be interested to review the new article ABC (Cuba) and the expanded article Directorio Estudiantil Universitario, as well as the mostly unchanged but rather important article Republic of Cuba (1902–1959). Meanwhile, if I can summarize a question asked at Talk:Sergeants' Revolt: which is the best page for a detailed description of the overthrow of Machado, the mediation of Sumner Welles, and the installation of a coalition government headed by Céspedes? Thanks, groupuscule (talk) 23:30, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to edit

Hi, I invite you to edit and expand this article United States involvement in regime change in Latin America that would certainly benefit from more editors. Greetings. --Dereck Camacho (talk) 05:32, 19 January 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   07:34, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Castro's Havana Declarations

FYI: Pointer to relevant discussion elsewhere.

Please see Talk:Fidel Castro#Havana Declarations
All Havana Declaration, First Declaration of Havana, etc. references to them are redlinks, and this should be fixed.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  12:07, 26 July 2018 (UTC)
