Article alerts[edit]

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 "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Shute House, Donhead St Mary[edit]

A new article has recently been created on Shute House in Wiltshire. The house is most notable for its gardens by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe. They are only open for group visits by prior written appointment. The article would be greatly improved by some photographs of the gardens. Are there any editors who have been fortunate enough to visit and could upload some images? KJP1 (talk) 07:05, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

I've never been and just had a go at searching Commons for it, but didn't turn anything up—sorry :( AleatoryPonderings (talk) 17:57, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
AleatoryPonderings - Thanks so much for having a look. But you’re right, nothing on Commons, nothing on Geograph. It’s a bloody exclusive garden! KJP1 (talk) 21:56, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
Of course :) I detest exclusive gardens and parks! I recall walking past Gramercy Park once and fuming with rage …… AleatoryPonderings (talk) 21:59, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Garden writing[edit]

Created garden writing last night, but I'm no expert. Any thoughts/contributions/ideas welcome! I was confused that I didn't turn up anything good in secondary sources about Vita Sackville-West, so she's a somewhat glaring omission from the article at present.

Me again. You might want to have a look at Sissinghurst Castle Garden. Tryptofish and I dug up a few good V.S-W quotes. I have all the books from when we took it to FA, so I shall check it out. KJP1 (talk) 22:01, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you so much! Will do :) AleatoryPonderings (talk) 22:13, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Herb Society of America[edit]

Hello, I recently made an article for the Herb Society of America. It is a work in progress. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Thriley (talk) 03:26, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
