Request for information on WP1.0 web tool


Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

New bot to remove completed infobox requests


Hello! I have recently created a bot to remove completed infobox requests and am sending this message to WikiProject Caribbean since the project currently has a backlogged infobox request category. Details about the task can be found at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/PearBOT 2, but in short it removes all infobox requests from articles with an infobox, once a week. To sign up, reply with {{ping|Trialpears}} and tell me if any special considerations are required for the Wikiproject. For example: if only a specific infobox should be detected, such as {{infobox journal}} for WikiProject Academic Journals; or if an irregularly named infobox such as {{starbox begin}} should be detected. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Wiki Cari Earth Week


50,000 Destubbing Challenge Focus of the Week


Hello there. This is an invitation to join the 50,000 Destubbing Challenge Focus of the Week. £250 (c. $310) is being given away in May, June and July with £20 worth of prizes to give away every week for most articles destubbed. Each week there is a different region of focus, including weeks dedicated entirely to the Caribbean, one to Brazil, and another to Central America, though half the prize will still be rewarded for articles on any subject. There's a potential £120 to be won in total for destubbing on any subject or region of your choice. Sign up if you want to contribute at least one of the weeks or support the idea! † Encyclopædius 12:17, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Netherlands Antilles to Caribbean Netherlands


There are still many talk pages with Netherlands Antilles=yes|Netherlands Antilles-importance=... The Netherlands Antilles doesn't exist anymore, and those parameters do not function in the template anymore. Is there a way to replace all "Netherlands Antilles" to "Caribbean Netherlands" for talk pages with WP Caribbean, because that will at least allow for some articles on that section. I am aware that Sint Maarten is technically a seperate entity now, but there's no Sint Maarten workgroup, so let's just keep them with the other islands. KittenKlub (talk) 09:54, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
