Picnic[edit]

I'm happy your going to be able to attend the Wiknic after all. See you soon and have a Happy 4th of July! Usflag.gif Tinkermen Talk 20:25, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, see you Sunday! Calliopejen1 (talk) 22:51, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
BTW, the picnic would be a good time to encourage folks to sign their names to meta:Southern California Wikimedians.--Pharos (talk) 13:55, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
And the usergroup effort would probably also be a good topic to post to the mail:wikimedia-california discussion list.--Pharos (talk) 13:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Feedback request[edit]

Thank you for your advice regarding my article. I have taken it on board and made significant changes (especially a lot of deleting!) and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind giving me feedback again, as I would like to get it perfect before I submit it onto the live wikipedia. Here is the link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Granola_t/Charles_Tchen Granola t (talk) 00:12, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

@Granola t: I've made my suggested revisions (including much more deleting!). The last version still seemed too much like a CV/promotional page. To be honest, I'm not sure if Tchen is notable by Wikipedia standards. However, for people in Africa, there are often fewer reliable sources available online so it is hard to say how this one would be judged. I'd go ahead and move it into the main encyclopedia, but just understand that there is still the possibility of deletion if he is ultimately deemed to be not notable... If you have access to any print sources about Tchen and could incorporate them into the article, that would be great. Calliopejen1 (talk) 17:53, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Jen, we don't know each other, but it's usual to check with the blocking administrator before unblocking a user. See WP:BLOCK ("Except in cases of unambiguous error or significant change in circumstances dealing with the reason for blocking, administrators should avoid unblocking users without first attempting to contact the blocking administrator to discuss the matter.").--Bbb23 (talk) 22:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know about that recommendation. I'll keep it in mind in the future. The case seemed fairly straightforward, so I didn't really think about it. Calliopejen1 (talk) 22:52, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
