Emma Mashinini almost ready to go?[edit]

Added a lead. What do you think? I wish there was more info about her doings after 1990 but I don't find much. Also do you think there's any special reason the title of her book (Strikes have followed me all my life) is not fully capitalized? It doesn't bother me terribly but I also don't think this is a South African convention or a particular choice for this book. Happy new year!! groupuscule (talk) 19:08, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Happy New Year to you too! Sure, let's move the titles to caps (the small letters are a habit from work ... :) Looks ready to me.
Shall we go for a DYK? Djembayz (talk) 03:45, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, let's do it. Please go ahead and take the article to mainspace if you think it's ready; I'll begin a "QPQ" review shortly. Thank you for introducing me to the life of such an amazing person. groupuscule (talk) 05:00, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Moved. There are probably a zillion great people in places like Africa, India and China we haven't heard of yet ... makes you realize how big the world is! Djembayz (talk) 05:59, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Amen. Now, here's a DYK nomination for Ms. Mashinini. Please feel free to change around the hook(s). Wish we could find an appropriately licensed picture of her, but I haven't seen anything on Commons or Flickr. salaam groupuscule (talk) 19:44, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Surveillance awareness day[edit]

You were supportive of the idea that Jehochman proposed: "A message is most effective when it matches the format of the media. We're an encyclopedia. On Feb 11, I suggest we fill our front page with articles, blurbs and news about mass spying and privacy. That will send a strong message, and help educate people. It's sort of like what we do on April 1, except serious instead of foolish."

Since this proposal received so much support, I and several others have done our best to begin the process of implementation. That said, the proposal is very controversial with Main Page insiders who have, understandably, objections that boil down to WP:NOTADVOCATE.

It's valuable to have feedback from people who oppose any deviation from the status quo, but we really need feedback from people who understood Jehochman idea, supported it, and could tell us whether we're succeeding in "implementing the vision" that Jehochman laid out and how to improve the proposal.

If you have the time, would you lend your view over at Wikipedia:Surveillance awareness day. If you want to see a list of custom content that could be available, we have a Arbitrary mockup #2, that shows lots of proposed content on one page.

Your feedback is most appreciated. --HectorMoffet (talk) 09:55, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of endangered languages with mobile apps[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of endangered languages with mobile apps has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Really?

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you for using VisualEditor! Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters..." tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • How often do you normally use Wikipedia's character inserters?
  • Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes. Please leave your views on the central feedback page, or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages or other special characters are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it.

P.S. You might be interested in the current ideas about improving citations, too. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

An idea[edit]

Hi Dyembayz... I saw your edits to Orick, California and the older native town. I am getting ready to propose merging those two articles as neither is likely to ever grow huge, and the early settlement is only a part of the later one. What do you think? Ellin Beltz (talk) 23:05, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your reply. I understand about the ghost towns, but for Humboldt County at least, please understand that one former user typed in the name of every crossroads, giving us a huge list, sometimes with a CDP and a ghost town in 99% the same location and nearly the same name. I am in the process of ticking through that list and trying to write whatever is possible about it (e.g. Bracut, California but as these were not particularly notable little crossroads it's hard to do much more than location - even for some of the Euro/American ghost towns. I will check with the project you suggested. Thanks for the tips. Ellin Beltz (talk) 02:29, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
My husband pointed something out about Orick in particular and others of these "ghost towns". They have had continuous human habitation, but they changed their names. He says the reason not to worry about artifacts in Orick (and elsewhere around the area) is that the original towns were on one or both sides of the only trailways, as the roads widened and then when Caltrans widened everything out to 150 feet, the sites were lost completely. But for Orek, Orick... it's the same town, even the lede in Orick says it is just another name. He explained it so nicely I thought I'd mention it to you. His example was to take his tablet and go look for the Wikipedia page on the Lenepe village at Battery Park, Manhattan Island, New York where the Dutch bought the island for the proverbial 23 dollars worth of stuff (1960s dollars). He couldn't find one because the city of Manhattan grew up and covered it and all the other villages which once dotted the island. Good example. Thanks for reply, I will check with the project people before doing anything but at least I'm more organized on this one. Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 04:47, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Did meetup happen?[edit]

I was at the Kogod Courtyard for the DC meetup to day promptly at 3:00pm. I didn't see any group that seemed to be the Wikipedians. One group had a sign "meetup" but it was the DC Philosophy Club. Anbothe was a photographer's group. Where was everyone? was this canceled? DES (talk) 23:59, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

The Great American Wiknic and other events in July[edit]

Wikinic 2013 washington d.c. 02.JPG

I am pleased to announce our fourth annual picnic, the Great American Wiknic, will take place at Meridian Hill Park in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, July 13 from 1 to 5 PM (rain date: July 20). We will be hanging out by the statue of Dante Alighieri, a statue that was donated to the park in 1921 as a tribute to Italian Americans. Read more about the statue on Wikipedia. If you would like to sign up for the picnic, you can do so here. When signing up, say what you’re going to bring!

July will also feature the second annual Great American Wiknic in Frederick, Maryland. This year’s Frederick picnic will take place on Sunday, July 6 at Baker Park. Sign up here for the Frederick picnic.

What else is going on in July? We have the American Chemical Society Edit-a-Thon on Saturday, July 12, dedicated to notable chemists, and our monthly WikiSalon on Wednesday, July 16.

We hope to see you at our upcoming events!

Best,

James Hare

Thanks for TISA page expansion![edit]

Just wanted to say that your edits to the TISA page was really cool! Hopefully, the deal receives more press coverage despite measures taken to prevent this and we have more material to expand the page with. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Je.est.un.autre (talkcontribs) 04:18, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Smot (chanting), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Khmer. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
