This is EVula's talk page, which shouldn't be a surprise if you clicked the link...

My general guidelines:
  • If I (EVula) left you a comment on your talk page, please just respond there, not here, so that conversations aren't spread out. Similarly, if you post something here, I will respond here.
  • Place new comments after existing ones (but within topic sections).
  • Separate topic sections with ==A descriptive header==, and put new topics at the bottom of the page.


Vanderbilt Edit-A-Thon[edit]

Hi EVula, I'd like you to meet Nikilada, who is our Dean's Fellow for Wikipedia this semester. She'll be helping us to host a new Edit-A-Thon this fall, probably focused on translation between Wikipedia language editions. We're hoping that we can draw on your expertise again. Plus free pizza! How is Nov. 1st in your calendar? Clifford Anderson (talk) 14:39, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

You had me at "free pizza"...
November 1st works for me. What time? I've got an event that night, but I won't need to be there until 6 or so. EVula // talk // // 15:41, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Great! We're thinking that we'd run the edit-a-thon from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. Nikilada is confirming the date with the Special Collections folk. We'll let you know when we have the details shored up. Look forward to seeing you again! Clifford Anderson (talk) 20:24, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Hey! Someone really has it out for my Mary Helen Clark page. It's been marked for deletion as a COI and they called it "advertising". Is there anything more I need to be doing/can do to satisfy the people flagging it? Thanks! Nikilada (talk) 17:11, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I'd seen that guy bitching about the article's existence elsewhere. I've removed the prod (he also tried having it speedily deleted and that got shot down by someone else); if he wants the article deleted so badly, he'll have to take it to Articles for Deletion, which will get many more eyeballs on the article than prodding it (which may help address the notability concerns; I'm not entirely sure how to fix those, and I'm too busy to give it too much attention at the moment).

autochecked[edit]

Hi EVula, just a note that the autochecked usergroup does not include the skipcaptcha access. I moved the recent users you had given this to to confirmed which does. — xaosflux Talk 13:01, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Awesome, thanks. I was on my iPad and it was a pain in the ass to try to find what flag granted that; it's been a loooooooooong time since I've used Special:UserRights for anything other than the sysop bit. EVula // talk // // 14:22, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi EVula, sorry for joining in, but I was reading this and thought why not. You can find the rights listed at Special:ListGroupRights, or for easy remembering Special:UserGroupRights. All the best, Taketa (talk) 16:08, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks! I knew there was a page, and I'm sure I could have looked for it pretty quickly had I been on my regular computer, but trying to find it very quickly while on my iPad just wasn't going to happen. (and no need to apologize for joining the conversation; I'm always happy to have something on this page that is more than just Signpost notices.) EVula // talk // // 16:52, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Mary Helen Clark[edit]

Hi there. I'm not sure on what grounds you removed this proposed deletion? Your edit summary said "assume a bit of good faith here", but I'm confused as to what policy your removal of this proposed deletion falls under. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 05:10, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

The "assume good faith" bit is trying to delete it as a G11. That's ridiculous; the article came out of an edit-a-thon at a university. We should be happy about having universities working with Wikipedia to get their materials onto our servers. (that the person is potentially non-notable is reasonable, though I still think trying to delete it as soon as it was created was jumping the gun quite a bit) EVula // talk // // 20:45, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Editathon at Nashville Public Library[edit]

Hi EVula, we're contemplating holding another editathon at the Nashville Public Library on the civil rights movement in Nashville/Tennessee. Pharos thinks we may be able to hold the event in conjunction with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at NYPL. Tentatively, the date is scheduled for Saturday, February 7th. Any chance you might be able to take part? Amwilliams15 is helping to coordinate events at the Nashville Public Library. Let us know. Thanks!! Clifford Anderson (talk) 20:27, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Ooh, I'd definitely be interested in getting involved, and I've got nothing scheduled that day until that evening. Elonka recently moved to town as well, I wonder if she'd be interested. (which reminds me that I really need to check my Facebook messages more readily than my talk page messages...) EVula // talk // // 20:36, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Great! By all means, let's include anyone who's interested. I'll keep you posted as plans develop. Clifford Anderson (talk) 21:50, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Wonderful!! This will be our first editathon at NPL so we would love as many experienced editors as possible! So glad you are interested in participating! Amwilliams15 (talk) 14:31, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
We are confirmed for February 7th from 11-4. Check out the meetup page for more information. Would you be willing to help with the training for new users? Amwilliams15 (talk) 17:40, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
