Could also include History of European Jews in the Middle Ages, Haskalah, Islamic world contributions to Medieval Europe, and maybe some other links to topics about the history of Europe that centre non-Christians? MadameOctavian (talk) 07:28, 3 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
those are good ideas. thanks!! by the way, would you like to be a Coordinator at WikiProject History? We can use input from some knowledgeable and experienced editors, on many areas. thanks!! Sm8900 (talk) 01:33, 2 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

RfC re: WikiProject Public Art


I've started an RfC re: whether or not WikiProject Public Art should be merged into WikiProject Visual arts:

If editors decide a merge is appropriate, I hope someone knows how to assist with converting a WikiProject into a task force appropriately.

Thanks, ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:15, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

The RfC at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Public Art has closed. I'd say there's generally support to convert WikiProject Public art into a task force of WikiProject Visual arts. Does someone know how to do this, or is there somewhere I can submit a request? ---Another Believer (Talk) 05:16, 28 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Another Believer, have you looked at Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Guide/Task forces#Converting existing projects to task forces? WhatamIdoing (talk) 03:47, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Class update

I'm working towards upgrading ((class)) to use Lua and a JSON definition file. Not least because this affects ~17% of all pages, I would appreciate input and/or review at Template talk:Class#Move to Lua/JSON version. Please respond there, or ping me if you respond here.

Unreferenced Articles project collaboration

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]

Add warnings to pages that contain violent or disturbing images

Many pages, such as those contain information on diseases or war have disturbing content with no warning or filter. Warnings about potentially disturbing images should be added to pages containing content such as those showing burns or lesions. Some pages on war and conflict contain images of corpses which may also be disturbing to viewers. (talk) 11:27, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Per WP:NOTCENSORED you'll likely have trouble getting editors to support a general rule on disturbing content warnings (and coming up with a global line for what is "disturbing" would be impossible). However if you have particular articles in mind where you think unnecessarily graphic images distract from the article's purpose and make it more challenging for a reader to understand, feel free to post at those talk pages or at the relevant WikiProjects (e.g. for pages on burns and lesions consider WT:MED) and folks may be willing to find alternative images -- basically per WP:ASTONISH.

The usual categories for complaints are sex/nudity, violence, disgusting, and sacred (Depictions of Muhammad is the obvious example, but some indigenous groups also object to photos of certain places or objects). Complaints about medical content tend to be in the "disgusting" category. We might not be able to agree on a standard like "blood makes some people queasy", but I'd bet that anyone who edits that area much could give you a "top 10" list pretty easily.
