The Wikipedia Library completed the first 6 months of its Individual Engagement grant last week. Here's where we are and what we've done:
Increased access to sources: 1500 editors signed up for 3700 free accounts, individually worth over $500,000, with usage increases of 400-600%
Deep networking: Built relationships with Credo, HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, Cochrane, LexisNexis, EBSCO, New York Times, and OCLC
New pilot projects: Started the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar project to empower university-affiliated Wikipedia researchers
Developed community: Created portal connecting 250 newsletter recipients, 30 library members, 3 volunteer coordinators, and 2 part-time contractors
Tech scoped: Spec'd out a reference tool for linking to full-text sources and established a basis for OAuth integration
Broad outreach: Wrote a feature article for Library Journal's The Digital Shift; presenting at the American Library Association annual meeting

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages.

How do I deal the mysterious threat by IP user ([edit]

Hi, Charles. Thank you for your great arbitration in January 2012 on the article Additive synthesis. After then, that article have been smoothly developed with the great help of other users.

On the recent, similar problem is occurred again on the related article Wavetable synthesis and the redirection Wavetable. Although I've already started the discussions on these talk pages (Talk:Wavetable and Talk:Wavetable synthesis), an IP user ( ignored the discussions, started the reverting-war, and finally he threat me with mysterious, poetic words on my talk page. In my eyes, he seems probably the same person (Robert Bristow-Johnson @ music-dsp / banned User:Rbj) who caused trouble on the article Additive synthesis in 2012.

How do I treat this IP user ? I'm glad if I could read you advice. best, --Clusternote (talk) 04:23, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
