Updating the look of the project page[edit]

Hello to anybody watching the project page. I feel the current design leaves a lot to be desired, so I'm stealing the look from the newest team project, WP:BRAVES, to hopefully give us a better look. I'm going out of town for the weekend but will keep working on this next week. If anyone wants to help out, please edit at User:Muboshgu/WP:YANKEES. There are kinks I need to work out and content that needs to be added. Thanks. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:38, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Sure, why not, I will do that myself. JJ98 (Talk / Contributions) 20:32, 4 November 2011 (UTC)
I just changed it back. There's some bugs that need to be worked out in user space before it's ready. – Muboshgu (talk) 03:36, 7 November 2011 (UTC)

Featured topic[edit]

Anybody want to help me make this happen? We have some work to do. – Muboshgu (talk) 02:08, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Good article Derek Jeter

Jorge Posada
Andy Pettitte

Featured article Mariano Rivera


Half of the articles in this project currently don't have an importance rating. I'm suggesting the below as importance criteria for the project:

Article importance grading scheme
Label Criteria Examples
Top Subject is a "core" or "key" topic for the Yankees, or is generally notable to people other than students of the Yankees. They define and determine the subject of the New York Yankees WikiProject. This should include the 27 World Series championships, Hall of Famers notable to non-baseball experts, etc. New York Yankees, 2009 World Series, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio
High Subject is notable in a significant and important way within the field of the Yankees, but not necessarily outside it. This includes Hall of Famers not well known to non-baseball experts, Monument Park honorees, etc. Phil Rizzuto, Allie Reynolds
Mid Subject contributes to the total subject of the New York Yankees WikiProject. Subject may not necessarily be famous. This includes managers, Opening Day starting pitchers, All-Stars, award winners, first round draft picks, etc. Joe Girardi, Chien-Ming Wang, Brien Taylor
Low Subject is not particularly notable or significant even within the field of the Yankees, and may have been included primarily to achieve comprehensive coverage of another topic. This includes most Yankees players, coaches, etc. Clay Bellinger, Bobby Cox

Lou Gehrig: Pride of the Yankees[edit]

Please explain why this novel has no article. The movie came from this book.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 08:13, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Yankees Photos[edit]

Here is some old Yankees pictures at this link that may have been released from their copyrights since they are so old and could be used here. Theworm777 (talk) 22:31, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Image needed to be made for #6 that is to be retired[edit]

Can anyone make a #6 image to eventually put in the retired numbers section? It has been announced here. (talk) 05:43, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject New York Yankees/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject New York Yankees.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject New York Yankees, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   11:00, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
