Have you noticed...[edit]

...WikiProject Texas? Thought I'd point it out in case you're interested in participating. Hook 'em — e. ripley\talk 15:30, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Texas history[edit]

Hi Anne, I saw your post on WT:WikiProject Texas that you are interested in Texas history. That's great (even if you are a Longhorn - I bleed maroon ;)). Right now, User:Mcorazao and I are the only editors systematically trying to improve Texas history articles, and we could sure use help. I'm about halfway through bringing the articles on Mexican Texas and the battles of the Texas Revolution up to featured article status. Mcorazao has been focusing on 20th century history, particularly the Texas Oil Boom and events around Galveston. If you want to work by yourself, that means there is plenty of history out there to choose from; if you want to work with one of us, just pick your favorite article and we'll see if we can help out.

To get articles up to Featured Article status, we need to make sure they are all well-cited to reliable sources and that we don't delve into original research or copyvios. If you have any questions on those policies, just ask - both Mcorazao and I have been playing on WP for a long time. Happy editing! Karanacs (talk) 16:09, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

I can start out helping you, but then eventually write my own stuff as time permits. My favorite time in TX history is from the early mission settlements to the era of Sam Houston. The history of Sam Houston is really amazing and I have lots of books on him. Aggie or not, we are both Texan and that means something! Anneaholaward (talk) 16:13, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Really you can help in whatever way interests you most. Just pick an article, roll up your sleeves and start working. Oh and have fun too. — e. ripley\talk 16:24, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
It looks like our interests overlap pretty well - I started out with Spanish Texas and have been moving forward bit by bit. There are so many articles that need to be written - or rewritten/otherwise fixed - in this time period!! The Sam Houston article is in pretty bad shape, unfortunately, and could really use someone with good books to care for it. Another good source for reference material is the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, with most articles available free [1]. E. Ripley is right - pick a topic that interests you and start reading. If you want, let me know what article you pick and I'll watchlist and try to help out. Karanacs (talk) 17:30, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Super cool, thanks. I am getting back into my writing groove these days and will check out Southwestern Historical Quarterly! Anneaholaward (talk) 00:48, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Nice to see you back! Happy writing :) Karanacs (talk) 15:12, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Invitation to join WikiProject United States[edit]

Hello, A.Ward! WikiProject United States, an outreach effort supporting development of United States related articles in Wikipedia, has recently been restarted after a long period of inactivity. As a user who has shown an interest in United States related topics we wanted to invite you to join us in developing content relating to the United States. If you are interested please add your Username and area of interest to the members page here. Thank you!!!

--Kumioko (talk) 02:12, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Great, Welcome to the project and please let me know if you have any comments, questions or suggestions. --Kumioko (talk) 22:02, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

New Years Message for WikiProject United States[edit]

With the first of what I hope will be monthly newsletters I again want to welcome you to the project and hope that as we all work together through the year we can expand the project, create missing articles and generally improve the pedia thought mutual cooperation and support. Now that we have a project and a solid pool of willing members I wanted to strike while the iron is hot and solicite help in doing a few things that I believe is a good next step in solidifiing the project. I have outlined a few suggestions where you can help with on the projects talk page. This includes but is not limited too updating Portal:United States, assessing the remaining US related articles that haven't been assessed, eliminating the Unrefernced BLP's and others. If you have other suggestions or are interested in doing other things feel free. I just wanted to offer a few suggestions were additional help is needed. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions or you can always post something on the projects talk page. --Kumioko (talk) 02:35, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

Username[edit]

Hi Anneaholaward,

I noticed you changed your signature a little while ago. Just a heads-up: do you know you can request a username change at WP:CHU? I thought I'd suggest it because last time a contributor I knew changed their signature, they didn't know about WP:CHU, and after I told them about it they were happy and requested a change. It also makes talk page discussions a little easier to follow if everyone's signature matches the username that appears in the page history.

Cheers, Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 14:08, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Adrian! You can just call me Anne :) I have actually been meaning to change my username since I got married many moons ago.

See also section[edit]

Please do not add redundant "see also" links to articles as you did to Lisp (programming language). Per our manual of style, the "see also" section is only for links not already linked from the article text, infobox, or navigation templates. A "see also" entry is considered a temporary expedient until text can be written to integrate the see also entry into the article as a Wikilink. Thanks for your understanding. Yworo (talk) 14:20, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I get what you are saying. To me it would've been nice to have Arc in the see also, but I agree the article has other issues. A. Ward (talk) 19:05, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

United States National Archives WikiProject
Would you like to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to the National Archives and its incredible collection? This summer, the National Archives—which houses some of America's most important historical documents—is hosting me as its Wikipedian in Residence, and I have created WP:NARA to launch these efforts.

There are all sorts of tasks available for any type of editor, whether you're a writer, organizer, gnome, coder, or image guru. The National Archives is making its resources available to Wikipedia, so help us forge this important relationship! Please sign up and introduce yourself. Dominic·t 15:22, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:HowardHelman.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:HowardHelman.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. We hope (talk) 14:57, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Tagged-socialnetwork-farm.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Tagged-socialnetwork-farm.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 13:16, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
