Adrianne Wadewitz Memorial edit-a-thons[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz edit-a-thons in Southern New England
Wikimania 2012 portrait 102 by ragesoss, 2012-07-13.JPG

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.

If it's alright with you[edit]

I moved 2015 in Latin American music to 2015 in Latin music to have it focused on Latin music as a genre rather than simply Latin American music. Under the definition of Latin American music, we wouldn't be able to include artists like Enrique Igleisas or Alejandro Sanz since they're from Spain yet are considered Latin artists and Billboard's definition of a Latin album is a product containing 50% of its recordings in Spanish. It's just my suggestion though so you can move back if you're uncomfortable about it. BTW, I'm planning to start an edit-a-thon in Miami dedicated to Latin music about 3-4 months from now. Nothing is set in stone yet, but I'm looking forward to see how it can be done. Erick (talk) 03:09, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm fine with that, I wasn't the one who created it though; I saw it abandoned and figured I give it some tlc. Is the edit-a-thon just for WP:Latin music members or are you trying to facilitate more people in that area to contribute? I used to live in Orlando but I'm all the way up in Connecticut lolz, so good luck on the project; it does sound like a great plan though so keep me updated. Best, jona(talk) 13:10, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Well I gotta say, you did a good job! =) The purpose of the edit-a-thon is to recruit new people into joining Wikipedia. One organization I'm hoping to get involved in is the Latin Recording Academy since the Latin music project is based on their definition of "Latin music" and they set up a Cultural Foundation for anyone wanting to do study under the Latin music field. Plus their headquarters are over there which makes it convenient. Erick (talk) 22:37, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you Face-grin.svg. Sounds interesting, I believe its a great idea to outsource there since they already have an educational area for those interested in the topic, maybe you might be able to teach a class about Wikipedia and get them involved in WP:Latin music; sounds intimidating =) but its worthwhile to be invested in working with like-minded people who might not know about the existence of our project.

Reverted my edit[edit]

Hi! You recently just reverted my edit on "List of Awards and Nominations received by Selena." I don't want to start an edit war so I came to your talk page! :) The citation is directly from SelenaBrand.com a website ran by Selena's Father Abraham Quintanilla Jr. and Sister Suzette Quintanilla. They stated how Selena was nominated for 80 Tejano Music Awards, with 36 wins and 44 nominations. Why did you revert my edit if I edited it correctly? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SQPADH19711979 (talkcontribs) 06:38, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@SQPADH19711979: The website is biased and ran by family members which is against WP:IRS. You need to find newspapers, magazines, and/or books (which have no ties to Selena or her family) that provides the details you claim she won or were nominated in as a source. Best, jona(talk) 12:49, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Thestarborn1028[edit]

I agree, this user constantly damages the Bad Girls Club pages. He's extremely ignorant, he's not that smart and it's getting extremely annoying. This user does not has what it takes to be an editor and must be blocked immediately. I am getting tired of erasing and undoing his edits and not getting any back up on it.

I caught him vandalizing the BGC pages AGAIN: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bad_Girls_Club_(season_10)&diff=prev&oldid=653935926

Selena
Thank you, admirer of Selena, for "turning her stubs into good and featured articles" such as List of awards and nominations received by Selena, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom and Missing My Baby. for quality articles, for pet articles on Simple English and improvements to the Arabic, for precision explained and joy at comeback, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

  • Thank you @Gerda Arendt: for your kind words! Best, jona(talk) 11:34, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for the article! You have no idea how well "missing" matched my mood, sadly, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:38, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Hopefully it will be lifted today with the great sound of music =) jona(talk) 11:45, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Selena: reference question[edit]

Hello, Jona. I have a question about this edit to Selena. A named reference "image" is invoked twice with the code <ref name=image/>. However, this reference does not appear to be defined and the result is an error in the list of references, at #225 currently. I wasn't sure what your intention was, so I left it alone – please could you take a look? Thanks! Wdchk (talk) 11:29, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this up. I added "ref name" to image and added all the sections needed to verify that claim, but I guess I made an error somehow by using the templates box above on the header and it ended up as just a ref code. Currently, I cannot locate its source (most likely found from my college newspaper database); but since its already sourced to a book its safe to remove it altogether from the article. Best, jona(talk) 11:43, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

article subvision[edit]

Hello, How Are You , Could You PleaseKindly Stop Changing The Information Regarding Selena, I Understand she was known by this name, but it is NOT her full legal name, which is someones name usually at birth, not what they are called at the disco club, Thank You. Please Also If You are going to change someones edits that they have gone out off there way to contribute, please give a valid reason as to why!!!, as i have done with my edits — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.43.24.108 (talk) 13:02, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Well hello and thanks for contributing here on Wikipedia! Here we use names that a person is known as such as Nicki Minaj for an example. We don't use their full legal name if they are not known by that by the general public or "disco club" (aka America) as you put it. I actually did provide a reason on your talk page, and by screaming (using caps) is not a good way to tell people what you are editing. Best, jona(talk) 13:12, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Again, I understand what you mean, sorry i am just used to writing in caps, i did not understand it is screaming, Nicki Minaj, as you have mentioned in the article , only has her name of this in the INFOBOX, not the actual article, you will see it starts as her name and then gives the name of her stage name, that is why i put the SELENA article in brackets after she was born as Selena Quintanilla, i see she married a mister Perez, — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.43.24.108 (talk) 13:20, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

I understand and thanks for clarifying. There's nothing wrong with adding her full name (not linking it as an article that bears the title), but the reason why I reverted your edit was the sentence of "known professionally" and "superstar" which are discouraged to use in articles as it is not encyclopedic, Selena has an article here because she is famous enough to be included here so we don't need to use words like that. Best, jona(talk) 13:28, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Again How are You, So are you happy we do it just this way Selena (born as Selena Quintanilla), Regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.43.24.108 (talk) 13:31, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Actually, yes. And also you may want to create a username and sign your messages after you have post them so I won't have to re-write my response to you since a Wiki bot will sign your IP for you, which then becomes an edit conflict for myself. Thanks, jona(talk) 13:37, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Big Brother Canada[edit]

Hi, since you are the one who is replying to all the comments on the talk page perhaps you could update the article. --MSalmon (talk) 15:08, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

@Msalmon: I am not an admin and I was only helping out IPs and users who were confused about the full protection of the article. An admin will update it eventually, but you can request that the article be unprotected if you feel as though users will not engage in disputes. Best, jona(talk) 19:37, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
By the time the protection comes off then there will be a lot of editing that will need to be done to make up for the lack of updates --MSalmon (talk) 19:46, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
@Msalmon: The best thing to do right now is to request that the article be unprotected, I really can't do anything about it. Best, jona(talk) 14:00, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Re: Congrats man[edit]

Thank you so much for your support and for helping me it making a better article! It fills me with joy to know that one of most essentials Latin albums has become FA! We need to get Amor Prohibido and Dreaming of You at least GA as I consider those to be essential Latin albums of all time as well. So after the break, maybe you could help me get the Latin music portal FP? It's pretty much done for the most part so I just need to request a PR. I consider the portal to be a compilation of best articles that our members have contributed to. I'll stick around to see the FA barnstar on the Romance article. ;) Erick (talk) 14:16, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Oh boy, I gave up on those after their many unsuccessful runs but I believe I've matured as an editor and it could happen. I don't mind helping at all, some of the selected articles needs updates on their current state; maybe even installing a rule or guideline when selecting articles could be a great asset. Any who, congrats and hopefully when you come back you'll be charged up to bring more articles to FA status! I'll stick around and continue my best with improving articles to our WikiProject. Enjoy, jona(talk) 14:39, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Yep, and I can lend a helping hand by giving feedback on the talk page as you did on the talk Romance talk page. I never thought it would be possible to make Romance FA because of the lack of information online until I learned about Mexican newspapers online dating to the 1920s as well as the Resource Request center. Like the Latin music project, I base the definition of "Latin music" on the Latin Recording Academy and Billboard (from October 2012 and onwards). To me, the portal is my gratitude to you and all of the active users for your hard work. I"m going to do some checks around Wikipedia before I leave for the break today. Thanks again for all your support! Erick (talk) 14:50, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
I could definitely use your help with those sources =) But in the meantime have a well-deserved wikibreak. Talk to you soon, jona(talk) 23:01, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Jona, I'd like to have your opinion on something. What do you thinking the inclusion of Spanish versions by non Latin artists into the project like those by Beyonce for example? I have been conflicted about this for a long time because I'm afraid of getting into unneeded edit wars. But Tomica told me on FB he was very open to having the Spanglish version of "Hate That I Love You" being tagged by the Latin music banner so I just did that. I don't know if we should just limited to Spanish versions featuring a Latin artist or accept any Spanish or Portuguese versions of a song by a non Latin artist. Erick (talk) 21:24, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 May newsletter[edit]

C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) is a long-period comet discovered on 17 August 2014 by Terry Lovejoy; and is one of several Featured Pictures worked up by India The Herald (submissions) during the second round.

The second round one has all wrapped up, and round three has now begun! Congratulations to the 34 contestants who have made it through, but well done and thank you to all contestants who took part in our second round. Leading the way overall was Belarus Cas Liber (submissions) in Group B with a total of 777 points for a variety of contributions including Good Articles on Corona Borealis and Microscopium - both of which received the maximum bonus.

Special credit must be given to a number of high importance articles improved during the second round.

The points varied across groups, with the lowest score required to gain automatic qualification was 68 in Group A - meanwhile the second place score in Group H was 404, which would have been high enough to win all but one of the other Groups! As well as the top two of each group automatically going through to the third round, a minimum score of 55 was required for a wildcard competitor to go through. We had a three-way tie at 55 points and all three have qualified for the next round, in the spirit of fairness. The third round ends on June 28, with the top two in each group progressing automatically while the remaining 16 highest scorers across all four groups go through as wildcards. Good luck to all competitors for the third round! Figureskatingfan (talk · contribs · email), Miyagawa (talk · contribs · email) and Sturmvogel 66 (talk · contribs · email) 16:21, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
