General notices

  • Wikipedia now has six million articles!
  • A newsletter about userscript development on Wikipedia has been created: Wikipedia:Scripts++. To subscribe, visit its mailing list.
  • A project is under way to add short descriptions to all articles. This is mainly for the benefit of mobile users searching Wikipedia. Help is welcomed – please visit WikiProject Short descriptions to learn more.
  • SearchSuite is a userscript that provides user control over search results: it can strip them down to a single-spaced list, sort, and more. Most of its features are presented as menu item toggles to turn each feature on/off. Each menu-item-controlled feature works on the output of all the others, in both their on and off states. Feedback and feature suggestions welcome.
  • Do you have need for a specialized script that doesn't exist yet, or have an idea for a cool new script or gadget? Post requests and ideas at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests.
  • Free subscriptions to high-quality paywalled journals, newspaper archives, and online reference works are available for Wikipedia editors. For more information, see Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Library

WikiProjects and Task Forces

  • WikiProject Houston is looking for editors who are interested in collaborating on articles about places, regional history, and biographies relevant to the Houston area. The project is listed as active, but we are trying to gauge current interest.
  • Spell checkers needed - Wikipedia:Typo Team/moss got a complete update from the August 20, 2019 database dump. The project hosts lists of articles with misspelled words, words missing from Wiktionary, and unknown words that need investigation. Stop by and experience the satisfaction of fixing all the misspellings in an article!
  • The September Good Articles backlog elimination drive was a success. Keep checking to see when the next drive will be!
  • Call for volunteers at WikiProject Biography, Assessment backlog.
  • WikiProject Abandoned Drafts Stale draft drive. An ongoing drive dedicated to reducing the amount of stale user space drafts. Options are to delete, redirect, move to mainspace or blank. Stop by and help the drive out!
