FAR for Geology of the Death Valley area

I have nominated Geology of the Death Valley area for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. FemkeMilene (talk) 08:13, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

This article needs updating

(1) The term "eastern California" is (a) ambiguous and (b) too general.

     (a) The term may refer to the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada OR California's eastern counties. Since the fault zone is described as located in "the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada," the term "eastern slope" must refer to the eastern counties. 
     (b) However, this is too general a description. If the fault zone is a suture threaded through the Smartville Block, then specific counties need to be cited. 

A map would be useful. This could be provided by linking to USGS: however see #2 and #3 below.

(2) References: USGS link invalid (3) External links: USGS link invalid Jordansmith (talk) 17:32, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Task force cleanup

This project has quite a few task forces, many of which are inactive several of which overlap (e.g. SoCal and L.A.). Could we clean them up a bit? {{u|Sdkb}} talk 01:35, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

That certainly seems like a good idea to me for whatever its worth. DocFreeman24 (talk) 02:10, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
@Sdkb and DocFreeman24: Honestly I'd much prefer to attempt to rehabilitate them than just toss them aside, especially since it would probably be more work in the long-run to adjust the documentation everywhere and back-end tooling (templates, assessment, categories, etc.) as it would to brainstorm some ways of getting the project in front of the eyeballs of the right editors and jump-start them back to life. I'm currently in the process of giving a lot of that infrastructure a fresh coat of paint (see Category:FM-Class California State University articles for an example of the new category page design and {{Cal Invitation/calstate}} for my test case with the invitation template, among others) would like to see if I can enlist a few others volunteers to help me spread them around once everything's polished up nice and shiny. Does anyone have a problem with trying that approach first? --  RogueScholar Rs? 11:35, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
Certainly no objection here. My only concern is that this Wikiproject does not seem particularly active even at the highest levels so it made sense to try and consolidate and clean things up a bit to centralize things and hopefully bring more editors together. But I don't feel strongly about that, so fire away! DocFreeman24 (talk) 17:26, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, there's the activity concern is one issue, but I'm really here because of the duplication. I've recently been working on a group of pages at the eastern end of Los Angeles County--is that the L.A. task force, the Inland Empire task force, the SoCal task force, or all three? It's not immediately clear when tagging talk pages, and that's the issue. {{u|Sdkb}} talk 08:48, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
