Feedback needed at Mfecane talk page

edit

Hello everyone! I've been preparing for a re-write of the Mfecane article and would really appreciate some feedback at the talk page. Thanks in advance! Pliny the Elderberry (talk) 18:54, 9 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Need help with creating a consensus

edit

About 2 months ago, I made an RFC at Talk:Somalia#Somalia showed as controlling Somaliland. After a slow RFC after which the opinion remained split, nothing happened. Owing to a recent edit war regarding the image, I am posting this here for further input so this issue can be put to bed. Fantastic Mr. Fox (talk) 20:51, 26 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Using sources in French

edit

Hello, not sure I have time for this but.... I was reading French Wikipedia on Agbéyomé Kodjo, an ex-Prime Minister of the Togo who has recently died. French Wikipedia and another source do not match exactly what's on his page here in English. Particularly the fact that the English page mentions one former president, but there are 2 by that name, a father and son. What I find in English is very badly translated and possibly from an African language, not French. Just wondering. I posted something on the particular page's talk, but as near as I can tell, it has only been created by a bot. RoseSuna (talk) 02:12, 2 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I'll add it to my watch list and look at the corresponding French article later, probably in the next few days. First time come across this article. Tamsier (talk) 07:45, 2 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Developing Countries WikiContest

edit

Starting this July, we will see a new contest on the scene - the Developing Countries WikiContest (WP:DCWC)! Think of it as a WikiCup but only for articles and media on developing countries.

Competitors may submit GAs, GTs, FAs, FTs, FLs, FPs, and DYK and ITN entries from/on developing countries to gain points and proceed to further rounds. Points are also awarded to those who review GAs, FAs and FLs.

All articles on African topics are admissible for this contest, since nearly all African countries are listed as developing countries. Indeed, Africa has many least-developed countries, and contest submissions from these countries will get a multiplier in points. I encourage everyone here to sign up and compete with editors from around the world to create high-quality content!

Append your name to the DCWC signup page today!

University of Burundi new digitized documents and catalogue

edit

Hello! I’ve been in touch with Paul Gatavu, the librarian at the University of Burundi in Bujumbura. They’ve been digitizing loads of material, including theses, dissertations, papers and reviews, and they can be searched and accessed freely, with fulltext search, here!

You can read about the digitization project here. Zanahary (talk) 13:52, 3 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for this, this is great news. -Indy beetle (talk) 14:07, 3 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's amazing! The vastest majority of this stuff hasn't ever been digitized at all before. It's an amazing project, especially at a university so underfunded as UB. Zanahary (talk) 14:12, 3 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
 

Talk:United States has an RfC. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments on the discussion page. The previous one was closed due to it being too combative and not inducive to discussion. Thank you. Alexanderkowal (talk) 09:01, 9 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Review of new article with relevance to rural Africa water supply?

edit

Hello, I've recently (on 1 July) resubmitted a new article for review, could someone with reviewer rights please do the review and, if they agree that it's notable, move it from draft to main space? The article is about a network that does a lot of work on water supply for people living in rural Africa, so it's of relevance for this project. Here is the draft article: Draft:Rural Water Supply Network. (I've stated on its talk page how I am professionally connected to that network and how I manage the potential conflict of interest).

Pinging User:Sadads in the hope that he has time to review this new article. Thanks. EMsmile (talk) 14:30, 16 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm pinging another 3 people whom I found in the category [Wikipedia Articles for Creation reviewers]. Does someone have time to take a lookg? Pinging User:Noahfgodard, User:Xegma, User:Endrabcwizart. Thanks in advance. EMsmile (talk) 08:17, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
I think this may be relevant according to their website detail, but we need secondary sources. We cannot use their website content as the reference. I believe some corrections should be made before AFC submission.
My Opinion for improvement:
  • Infobox with basic information
  • Sections: Introduction, About, History, Work, Annual Report, Where they work
All these suggestions depend on secondary sources like journals, news media, and others(for more info: WP:RELIABLE). If I find some relevant sources, I will definitely contribute. At this time, this article may not be ready for mainspace and needs more improvement. Thanks. Endrabcwizart (talk) 19:38, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks, I'll reply to you on the talk page of the draft article. EMsmile (talk) 19:46, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

WP:WikiProject Oral tradition

Would people be interested in joining a wikiproject on improving and creating articles about oral tradition? Wikipedia's coverage on this appears to be very poor Kowal2701 (talk) 19:29, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
