Hello, Fellow de-orphaner![edit]

Nuvola filesystems folder home.png

I noticed you added your name to the list of participants in WikiProject Orphanage. We really appreciate your help! The first things you could do to get started with us are:

  1. Read the Wikipedia:Orphan page, especially the section marked "Criteria". The page contains a lot of good advice to get you started, as well as the standard procedures we are using to de-orphan articles.
  2. Look at {{orphan}}, and {{articleissues}} closely and make sure you know how to use them correctly. (It's not difficult, but it is easy to screw up. Trust me, I have.)
  3. Keep de-orphaning! Category:Orphaned articles contains all orphaned articles organized by month and there is a large backlog we need to clear out so we appreciate any help we can get.

Of course, you may have already known all of this, in which case sorry for the spam. Either way, let me know if there's any way I can help you contribute more to the project!

I applaud your efforts at de-orphaning however please keep in mind that the current criteria states that "An article is orphaned if fewer than three other articles link to it", and although I believe one incoming link is enough we really should be striving to provide at least 2 to 3 incoming links before removing the {{orphan}} tag. Thanks a lot! -- œ 22:47, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, and I'll follow the criteria. Aboriginal Noise (talk) 10:35, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop at CMU (Aug 15)[edit]

Since you are one of the editors in the Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: University of Pittsburgh, I'd like to invite you to the Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop that will take place at CMU on Aug 15 (this workshop is open to general public, and is a joint imitative of CMU and Pitt). There will be another workshop held at Pitt in the Fall as well. It will cover how to include Wikipedia in one's course (WP:SUP) and also how to become a Wikipedia:Campus Ambassadors. Pennsylvania has currently only one ambassador (myself) and it would be great if we could recruit at least several more. Ambassadors help course instructors, showing them how Wikipedia works, and interact with students. Many current ambassadors come from the body of students, faculty and university staff; it is a fun adventure, and adds to one resume/CV, to boot :) If it sounds interesting, feel free to ask me any questions, or to come to the workshop. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 19:47, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

TG[edit]

I would just say that I share your opinions. Even people in the know, and unconnected observers, are coming out and saying how classless it was. CrazyPaco (talk) 03:16, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

WikiProject University of Pittsburgh

As a current or past contributor to a Pitt-related article, I thought I'd let you know about WikiProject University of Pittsburgh, a collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia's coverage of the University of Pittsburgh and the Pitt Panthers. If you would like to participate, you can visit the project page, where you can join the project and see a list of open tasks and related articles. Thanks!
