errors in your pages on Otuke District, Uganda [ edit ]

There are multiple errors in the Wikipedia page on Otuke District, including antiquated colonial-era place-names which have not been used for many decades, and the page (and all mention of) 'Otuke Town'- which does not exist. These pages do not permit any edits to the first section of each, which contain the spurious references to 'Otuke Town'. If I am posting this message in the wrong place, please advise. Thanks ````

Draft:Gafat People [ edit ]

This draft is mostly incomprehensible, but may be on a notable subject and has a number of good references. Can anyone assist? Calliopejen1 (talk) 20:25, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

This wiki article needs a major overhaul [ edit ]

Anybody that is interested I think Stereotypes of Africa could do with a major rewrite. Dwanyewest (talk) 21:38, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Update to peer review page [ edit ]

Hi all, I've boldly updated your project's peer review page (Wikipedia:Africa-related regional notice board/Peer review) by updating the instructions and archiving old reviews.

The new instructions use Wikipedia's general peer review process (WP:PR) to list peer reviews. Your project's reviews are still able to be listed on your local page too.

The benefits of this change is that review requests will get seen by a wider audience and are likely to be attended to in a more timely way (many WikiProject peer reviews remain unanswered after years). The Wikipedia peer review process is also more maintained than most WikiProjects, and this may help save time for your active members.

I've done this boldly as it seems your peer review page is pretty inactive and I am working through around 90 such similar peer review pages. Please feel free to discuss below - please ping me ({{u|Tom (LT)}}) in your response.

Cheers and hope you are well, Tom (LT) (talk) 00:33, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

FAR for Paul Kagame [ edit ]

If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status.

Eritrean/Ethiopian Ethnicities - Tigrinyas vs Tigrayans [ edit ]

Howdy folks. Is anybody knowledgeable enough about Eritrea to double check this diff? I am a pending changes reviewer and I reverted it once before because of 1) talk page controversy and 2) the edit damages the Tigrayan script that was on the page (ብሄረ ትግራይ). But I am not really knowledgeable in this area so I hesitate to revert again. Thanks. –Novem Linguae (talk) 18:00, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
