Infobox photo discussion[edit]

Hi again. Happy New Year. Can you offer your opinion on which photo is better for the Infobox here? If you're not able to participate, just disregard this message; you don't have to message me. Thanks. Nightscream (talk) 01:14, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Art+Feminism Meetup at Purchase College[edit]

Hi User:Astrocog. I see your name as an experienced Wikipedia helper on the Wikipedia:Meetup/Westchester County/ArtAndFeminism 2014 Art and Feminism event page from last February. Would you be able to help out at Purchase College's event again this year? The organizers said you were a great help and are interested in getting in touch. Thanks! OR drohowa (talk) 17:16, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, put them in touch. What is the date for the event? Cheers, AstroCog (talk) 17:20, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi User:Astrocog! I am one of the organizers from the Purchase event. We would love to have you back! We will be holding our edit-a-thon Saturday, March 7 in the Library (same building as last time). We will also be working with a class again this year so we expect a good turn-out so your guidance will be invaluable. Thanks so much!

Hi KimThreeCat, I would enjoy working with your event again. It is possible that I will be out of town on business on March 7 - a little too soon for me to know. If I am not away, I will be at the event. If I do not get back to you by mid-February, please ping me again. If I can't go, we can put out a call to other Wikimedia NYC editors. Cheers, AstroCog (talk) 04:21, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much, User:Astrocog! I'll be in touch in mid-Feb to confirm with you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KimThreeCat (talkcontribs) 16:33, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, User:Astrocog! Just checking in to see if you will be in town for Purchase College's edit-a-thon in March. The event is a requirement for a class so we anticipate a large crowd in need of some introductory training. Thanks so, so much! — Preceding unsigned comment added by KimThreeCat (talkcontribs) 00:22, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I'll be in town and I plan to attend :-) Cheers, AstroCog (talk) 14:12, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Awesome and thanks, User:Astrocog! Looking forward to a great event on Saturday! -- Anchorsandarrows (talk) 20:18, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Art+Feminism Meetup at Purchase College[edit]

Hi User:Astrocog. The Art+Feminism Meetup at Purchase College will be either on Saturday March 7th or Sunday March 8th. Might you be available to help out on either or both of those dates? Also, if so, what is the best way for the event organizers to get in touch with you? On wiki/off wiki? I'm at dorohoward(at)gmail.com if you want to email me, but responding on-wiki is fine too. Cheers! OR drohowa (talk) 22:18, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Damion Scott Infobox photo discussion[edit]

Hi. Damion Scott has taken issue with the photo in his article. He previously demanded that I replace it with one that I thought inferior to the one already in the Infobox, and has now replaced with a third one of his own. In the interest of WP:CONSENSUS, can you offer your opinion on this? Thanks again. Nightscream (talk) 19:24, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
