Criteria for inclusion for lists of local currencies[edit]

Do we have a formal criteria for inclusion for lists of local currencies (such as List of community currencies in the United States)? If not, we need it. These lists are very susceptible to spam for the people and organizations that create local currencies. - ZLEA T\C 16:12, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

It's hard to judge. There's a whole range from serious attempts at emergency currencies to pure fundraiser and sources are likely to be minimal.--Wehwalt (talk) 17:05, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

500 yen coin[edit]

I just need some additional editor input on the 500 yen coin article. I have worked on the article extensively so copy editing and making sure things are in order is appreciated. Would the article be B class or on its way to GA? - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:28, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

I think it could be worth a try at GA. I have upgraded it to B and will leave some comments on talk when I get a chance.--Wehwalt (talk) 16:50, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
Okay thanks! - Knowledgekid87 (talk)

Question about articles on two 77 year old coins[edit]

Hi all, I came across 5 cents (World War II Dutch coin) and 5 øre (World War II Danish coin), which have been tagged with notability concerns for just short of 5 years. I am not familiar with Wikipedia articles/coverage of coins, so thought I should check in. The problem with finding sourcing is the fact that these ceased production 77 years ago. I haven't found much aside from ebay listings and the like. Does anyone have any examples of sources that I should be looking out for when it comes to 20th century coins? Thanks for your time and assistance, it is much appreciated. --TheSandDoctor Talk 17:53, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

The Standard Catalog of World Coins may have a minimum of information. There are probably specialized catalogs on Dutch and Danish coins published in the respective countries. I don't happen to own any. The numismatic associations in the respective nations might be helpful if emailed, they may have issued publications in which these are discussed.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:48, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics/Cryptocurrency task force[edit]

So I just did a overhaul to the main project page of Wikipedia:WikiProject Cryptocurrency like adding a orange-like color format to the page and made a userbox and a barnstar, but I'm now finding out there is a task force also for Cryptocurrency via Wikipedia:WikiProject Numismatics/Cryptocurrency task force. Was WikiProject Cryptocurrency approved through here instead of the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals? Or did anyone here not know about WikiProject Cryptocurrency? Jerm (talk) 20:28, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

I think we're very shorthanded and probably these things go unnoticed.--Wehwalt (talk) 23:03, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, and a lot of editors are becoming less active too. I had marked like three WikiProjects this year as inactive and others as semi. I actually just marked WikiProject Cryptocurrency to semi because there are only two members who are still active editors. Jerm (talk) 23:37, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Cryptocurrency is the "active" one. This task force is pretty much inactive so I marked it as Category:Inactive task forces. Coin (talk) 22:08, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

I added the assessment table of the task force to the page of the wikiproject, but I'm not sure if the wikiproject has the same amount of articles assessed according to the task force assessment table. Jerm (talk) 03:58, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

200 euro note[edit]

Hi. I noticed that 200 euro note (a Good Article) has an empty subsection (this one). This seems like something that can be easily fixed by someone with the right expertise, which is why I'm bringing it to your attention. Thanks! Lennart97 (talk) 15:17, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
