Obituary for Henry Trueman Wood[edit]

I have transcribed the obituary "Sir H. Trueman Wood: the Royal Society of Arts". The Times (45095): 17. 8 January 1929. ISSN 0140-0460. Wikidata Q116982551., who as secretary of the Royal Society of Arts seems suitably notable for an article. There is an existing redlink to the article. Just in case, someone is interested in writing this article. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:13, 5 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Signups open for The Core Contest[edit]

The Core Contest—Wikipedia's most exciting contest—will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now. Cheers from the judges, Femke, Casliber, Aza24.

If you wish to start or stop receiving news about The Core Contest, please add or remove yourself from the delivery list.

Project-independent quality assessments[edit]

Quality assessments are used by Wikipedia editors to rate the quality of articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project decides to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

User:DGG has recently passed away, but he has left a draft at User:DGG/Eleazar (painter) which may be of interest to this project. BD2412 T 03:46, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
