Discussions about WikiProject tasks[edit]

Discussions about new portals or specific portals[edit]


I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I couldn't find an obviously more suitable place. At the moment, Portal:Cornwall doesn't have any of the lead section of the article Cornwall. I've tried to transplant a working peice of script in from Portal:Money but it didn't work and I'm not at all competent with the wiki-code involved. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. Many thanks, Gazamp (talk) 18:58, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Pinging @Certes: is this because the Cornwall article has so much code at the top, that {{transclude lead excerpt}} doesn't work? I noticed the same issue in Portal:Computer science/Intro. UnitedStatesian (talk) 01:04, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@UnitedStatesian: Fixed in Cornwall. The high sheriff infobox data had a stray "{" which confused the parser (and the wrong year). Certes (talk) 10:33, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@UnitedStatesian and Certes: - Thanks both of you Face-smile.svg Gazamp (talk) 13:08, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

New Idea[edit]

I noticed on the French Wikipedia that they have a portal called, Portal:Protestantism. Why has not someone created a similar portal for the English Wikipedia.Catfurball (talk) 21:58, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

They have. It was deleted in April. Certes (talk) 23:24, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

Then it was recreated since I was on that portal yesterday, and I just visited it again today. It goes by this: (talk) 21:29, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

User:Certes was talking about English Wikipedia's Portal:Protestantism: it was one-click created, and then deleted per community consensus. But there is no prejudice against creating a properly maintained version if someone wishes to take it on. I think Portal:Protestantism would conform to the WP:POG guideline more than some of the existing portals on individual protestant denominations. UnitedStatesian (talk) 01:04, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

Junk Portals[edit]

Portal:Syriac Christianity is a minor religion and should not have been created. Portal:Anabaptism is a minor religion and should not have been created. And there is the worst portal on Wikipedia, Portal:Evangelical Christianity, it is ugly and should have never been created. In fact I still don't understand why the keepers came out to save that piece of junk.Catfurball (talk) 18:27, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
