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. 07:56, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Proposed updates to the Scaled agile framework article

Hello. On behalf of my employer, Scaled Agile Inc., I've proposed some updates to the Scaled agile framework article here, in order to bring it up to date. I've suggested specific improvements and shared a few possible to consider. I invite WikiProject members to contribute to the discussion, especially those who may be familiar with scaled agile. Thank you. JB at Scaled Agile (talk) 22:45, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Marlin (firmware)

I just started Marlin (firmware), I'm not experienced in writing articles about software so if someone could take a look that would be great.

Comparison of content-control software and providers - more input needed

Two questions have recently come up about 1) the defunct status of K9 without published sources to verify this claim (although it is probably correct), and 2) the inclusion of Kaspersky Safe Kids in this list (although the topic has no defaultlogic.com resource article). For the related threads please see Talk:Comparison of content-control software and providers, a bit of additional background info can be found at User talk:GermanJoe - we are trying to use the article talkpage now though. The discussion has been very collegial so far, but would benefit from additional feedback by uninvolved knowledgeable editors. Any input would be appreciated.

Request for comment on Brave (web browser)

There is a request for comment on the Brave (web browser) article:

Should the Brave web browser be classified as a pay-to-surf web browser?

If you are interested, please participate at Talk:Brave (web browser)#Request for comment on "pay to surf" classification. -- Newslinger talk 20:21, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Xterm


The article Xterm has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable software with only "how-to" mentions in tech website articles.

While all constructive contributions to defaultlogic.com resource are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
