Hello and thanks for stopping by the Museums Project, which was launched in mid-March, 2008. We've had to archive some of the initial discussion due to talk page length, but a complete index of all archived topics is available. In the mean time, the following topics may help you:
Please always feel free to start a new topic and don't worry if it may have been discussed before. New discussion is a good thing.
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 "popflock.com Resource: PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.
This article, The Outsiders House Museum, is about a house in Tulsa, but it is written by a user who is very likely an undisclosed paid editor. As such, it may need cleanup in order to be eligible for inclusion on Wikipedia.
The big red notice has remained at the top of that article for over two years, yet the underlying issues have not been addressed. Maybe it's time to start cleaning it up? HighwayTyper (talk) 02:52, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
January 23rd was the one-year anniversary of the Cleveland Museum of Art's Open Access initiative, and they put up a nice blog post of the outcomes and collaborations that have resulted from it (including impacts on Wikimedia projects).
To recognize this anniversary, WikiProject Cleveland Museum of Art is hosting a Open Access Anniversary Editing Campaign through February 9; anyone who creates an article or expands two articles by 100+ words each will receive a postcard from the CMA.
