"Women are everywhere"

Hi Mduvekot. I'm an editor (not very active till now) of the Italian Wikipedia, where the gender gap is a real issue. I'm trying to participate to an IEG with the project "Women are everywhere". You will find the draft at this link https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IEG/Women_are_everywhere It would be great if you could have a look at it. I need any kind of suggestion or advice to improve it. Support or endorsement would be fantastic. Many thanks, --Kenzia (talk) 18:46, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

I wanted to thank you for all of the work you've been doing on her Wikipedia entry. I love her photography but I haven't had the time or resources to maintain the entry as I would like! Many thanks, Roving Ginger (talk) 20:38, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

@Roving ginger:You're very welcome. I enjoy working on citations. Unfortunately I don't have direct access to all the sources that are listed in Further Reading, so work on integrating those into the body of the article will have to wait. Mduvekot (talk) 20:52, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Warren Bell Hamilton page

As I started building this page, I received a note that it had been marked for deletion because it's about a living person and in the first iteration (only the intro paragraph) had no references. Subsequently I added references including links to the National Academy of Sciences, Geological Society of America, and Colorado School of Mines websites, as well as several books.

I'm just writing to check whether these meet expectations for legitimate references, and the page will no longer be marked for deletion.

thanks, Larry Hamilton (IChiloe) — Preceding unsigned comment added by IChiloe (talkcontribs) 16:37, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

@IChiloe: I noticed you have recreated the Warren Bell Hamilton page at Warren B. Hamilton, this time with references. That solves the issues that led me to nominated the page for deletion per WP:BLPPROD. Thank you for fixing the lack of references. Mduvekot (talk) 20:10, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 8

Newsletter • March / April 2016

This month:

Transclude article requests anywhere on Wikipedia

In the last issue of the WikiProject X Newsletter, I discussed the upcoming Wikipedia Requests system: a central database for outstanding work on Wikipedia. I am pleased to announce Wikipedia Requests is live! Its purpose is to supplement automatically generated lists, such as those from SuggestBot, Reports bot, or Wikidata. It is currently being demonstrated on WikiProject Occupational Safety and Health (which I work on as part of my NIOSH duties) and WikiProject Women scientists.

Adding a request is as simple as filling out a form. Just go to the Add form to add your request. Adding sources will help ensure that your request is fulfilled more quickly. And when a request is fulfilled, simply click "mark as complete" and it will be removed from all the lists it's on. All at the click of a button! (If anyone is concerned, all actions are logged.)

With this new service is a template to transclude these requests: ((Wikipedia Requests)). It's simple to use: add the template to a page, specifying article=, category=, or wikiproject=, and the list will be transcluded. For example, for requests having to do with all living people, just do ((Wikipedia Requests|category=Living people)). Use these lists on WikiProjects but also for edit-a-thons where you want a convenient list of things to do on hand. Give it a shot!

Help us build our list!

The value of Wikipedia Requests comes from being a centralized database. The long work to migrating individual lists into this combined list is slowly underway. As of writing, we have 883 open tasks logged in Wikipedia Requests. We need your help building this list.

If you know of a list of missing articles, or of outstanding tasks for existing articles, that you would like to migrate to this new system, head on over to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Requests#Transition project and help out. Doing this will help put your list in front of more eyes—more than just your own WikiProject.

An open database means new tools

WikiProject X maintains a database that associates article talk pages (and draft talk pages) with WikiProjects. This database powers many of the reports that Reports bot generates. However, until very recently, this database was not made available to others who might find its data useful. It's only common sense to open up the database and let others build tools with it.

And indeed: Citation Hunt, the game to add citations to Wikipedia, now lets you filter by WikiProject, using the data from our database.

Are you a tool developer interested in using this? Here are some details: the database resides on Tool Labs with the name s52475__wpx_p. The table that associates WikiProjects with articles and drafts is called projectindex. Pages are stored by talk page title but in the future this should change. Have fun!

On the horizon
  • The work on the CollaborationKit extension continues. The extension will initially focus on reducing template and Lua bloat on WikiProjects (especially our WPX UI demonstration projects), and will from there create custom interfaces for creating and maintaining WikiProjects.
  • The WikiCite meeting will be in Berlin in May. The goal of the meeting is to figure out how to build a bibliographic database for use on the Wikimedia projects. This fits in quite nicely with WikiProject X's work: we want to make it easier for people to find things to work on, and with a powerful, open bibliographic database, we can build recommendations for sources. This feature was requested by the Wikipedia Library back in September, and this meeting is a major next step. We look forward to seeing what comes out of this meeting.


Until next time,

Thanks for your edit to Evening; Red Tree

Hi Mduvekot, I just thanked User:Sudowoodoo for their edit to this article that I just merged into the one I had already created under the name Evening; Red Tree. I now see that it was in fact your edit! Sorry about that. Please feel free to adjust the article and I am perfectly willing to bow out of any points if you are interested in claiming points for this article in the Europeana Art Challenge! Thanks in any case for your edits. Jane (talk) 08:26, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

@Jane023: Good luck with the challenge. Enjoy your points. Mduvekot (talk) 12:02, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
That's funny, the points are now up for grabs. Soon we will have a policy no doubt for edit conflicts in writing challenges. Meanwhile, Happy editing! Jane (talk) 10:57, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 27

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Evening; Red Tree, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Luminism. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi

Hi there -- Sjschen (talk) 21:42, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Nate Garner

Hi, sorry I'm new to Wikipedia as so I'm not quite sure how to add references. Please could you explain in simple terms how I can do this. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Twerking4nate (talkcontribs) 18:56, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

@Twerking4nate: Depending on whether you use the Visual Editor, or if you edit using wikitext, you can refer to either the Help:Introduction to referencing with VisualEditor/1 or Help:Introduction_to_referencing_with_Wiki_Markup/1. Mduvekot (talk) 19:06, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
I have attempted to add references. Please may you check my page. You may edit it if things are in the wrong place. Please may you then do what even you have to do to withdraw the deletion request. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Twerking4nate (talkcontribs) 19:12, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Did you read the part about Reliable Sources? You have added primary sources (his youtube and vine profiles), and one secondary source (famousbirthdays) is probably not acceptable either. Mduvekot (talk) 19:20, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
What about now? Are these references reliable and good enough? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Twerking4nate (talkcontribs) 19:42, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
What you need is Reliable Sources. The Vanity Fair reference for is good. It would be nice if you made sure the reference is integrated in the body of the article text. Vanity fair confirms that he has many followers on instagram, and refers to the bullying, but also offers some critical opinion that isn't anywhere near as positive as what you've written so far. "22-minute humblebrag that’s meant to stop random Instagram commenters from pointing out this guy’s ceaseless vanity". You might want to represent that view in the article. Mduvekot (talk) 20:17, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
I have added something about the negative comments and integrated the reference into the body of the text. Does this now mean my page won't get deleted? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Twerking4nate (talkcontribs) 20:48, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
I originally proposed to delete the article because all biographies of living people (BLP) created after March 18, 2010 must have at least one reliable source that supports a statement about the subject. With the VF ref, that requirement has now been met. Mduvekot (talk) 21:17, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks so much for all the help and advice you have given me — Preceding unsigned comment added by Twerking4nate (talkcontribs) 01:31, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
