Edit-a-thon tomorrow (Saturday) in Oakland[edit]

Hi, I hope you will be joining us tomorrow afternoon at the Edit-a-thon at Tech Liminal, in Oakland. We'll be working on articles relating to women and democracy (and anything else that interests you). It's sponsored by the California League of Women Voters, Tech Liminal, and me.

If this is the first you are hearing of this event, my apologies for the last-minute notice! I announced it on the San Francisco email list and by a banner on your watchlist, but I neglected to look at the San Francisco invitation list until this evening. If you can't make it this time, I hope to see you at a similar event soon! -Pete (talk) 04:44, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

biographies of editors of Flora Europaea etc[edit]

Hi. Many, though very belated, thanks for the barnstar you gave me on 14 July 2012. Since then I've done two more botanists namely E. F. Warburg and Werner Rothmaler, both of whom wrote or co-wrote floras. I'd be interested in any suggestions you might have as to who is still missing. Filling the gap is easiest where, as with Rothmaler, there is already an article in the wikipedia of another (European) language. SamuelTheGhost (talk) 13:34, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Vital articles discussion[edit]

Hi there. You have participated in past discussion at Wikipedia talk:Vital articles, namely about possible additions and deletions to the vital 1000 articles. There is a new, similar discussion there now, myself and other users are giving input as to whether they support or oppose the idea of certain articles being added or deleted from the vital 1000 like before. Some of the proposals have been brought up before, and some are new. There are only a small number of users giving their views but we would like more, if you are still interested we would appreciate your input there, thank you.

Proposed deletion of Radula (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Radula (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

There is no point to having a DAB for a single ambiguous term. This should be a hatnote instead on the unambiguous article.

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. Hutcher (talk) 01:09, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Radula (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Radula (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. PamD 17:01, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Botany, FA candidate[edit]

A group of editors have been working these last months to prepare Botany for FA status, and we have now nominated it. As a major contributor to botanical articles, we would be very grateful for your opinion of the article, and for your support of it if you feel that is merited.

Re: Doctor Who Classic GA[edit]

Hi, in response to your comment at WP:WHO, really as much information on classic Doctor Who as possible is welcome. I've promoted Genesis of the Daleks and The Rescue using primarily the DVDs, and I'm working on Remembrance of the Daleks but I have two episodes to watch with information text and I'm not sure if there will still be references needed after that (if there are I can let you know). I also have DVDs for Earthshock, Day of the Daleks, The Romans, and Terror of the Autons, though I don't know when I'll be able to get to them extensively. I'd say just pick a favorite serial or something you would like to see improved. I supposed we could make a list of really notable serials...The Tenth Planet, Spearhead from Space, The Three Doctors, The Ark in Space, and The Five Doctors come to mind. But anything is appreciated! Glimmer721 talk 02:25, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Rather, I'm offering to make my resources available. I really don't have time these days to write much myself, and have other projects vying for my time. But if you are working on a story and would like me to send reference material your way, I can probably manage that. --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:36, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
No problem. I'll let you know if I run into a problem with Remembrance. Glimmer721 talk 17:06, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Conocephalum conicum.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!
