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,

Disambiguation link notification for July 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jack White, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Record. 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.

Wikipedia and YOUR History: Taking Control of the Internet[edit]

See you at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Street, Laurel, MD on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM EST. See http://www.meetup.com/Wikimedia-DC/events/205494212/ for more information. Geraldshields11 (talk) 02:13, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

Benedict Cumberbatch[edit]

Esprit15d, in regards to your edit on Benedict Cumberbatch's article, rewording the lead wasn't necessary as the article is a good article. Most of the sources you added were either improperly put or weren't reliable (ex. NY Post). We also don't use phrases like "rose to international stardom", it's just to peacock-y and not neutrally worded. The whole paragraph starting with "Born to actor parents Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham", isn't necessary either because that's right underneath in the "Early life" section and not typically in a lead. "He currently resides in Hampstead, North London" is also unsourced and not worded properly per WP:REALTIME. Since it is a good article, references need to be properly referenced using the cite templates. LADY LOTUSTALK 17:08, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

WP:GAN[edit]

I see that you edited WP:GAN, but your edit was reverted. Please follow the instructions on the page so that the bot does not revert your edits.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 23:49, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Unnecessary addition of external image[edit]

Hello! Favor? Theres's an unnecessary addition of an external image in Sophie Hunter's page. She's not a model whose appearance is pivotal to her profile nor is the external image notable in her body work. Other pages don't have photos in their infoboxes either and they still exist and work as a page even without an external image. The image the user keeps on inserting is also not solely of Hunter's appearance as she is with somebody else in the photo. This is not at all a very good representation or even rational to have an external image in the page. I hope you can remove it, as it's totally unnecessary.

I think this one is better, www.tatler.com/bystander/events/2014/may/osman-the-collective-no3-launch#!/14117/image/6 It is more recent and there's more context not just the date, place, and event as well. If we're to keep it.180.191.64.56 (talk)

Joan Robinson Hill[edit]

Thanks again for your help with the Joan Robinson Hill articles. I've been keeping an eye on them, but I'm not quite sure of the best way to take them forward following the split. Also got a bit sidetracked by a surprise Scottish Labour Party leadership election. Now the peer review has closed, I think probably the next thing to do is to put them both through WP:GOCE and see what happens. As I said in the review I think there's a GA in there somewhere (possibly two now), so I hope to get them ready in the next couple of months or so. I'll keep you up to date with how it goes. Cheers, This is Paul (talk) 12:39, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

I am still willing to help. I'm a little concerned that some of the info about her husband has crept back into the article. But I am willing to work with you to get the articles to a better level, or even GA status. One important thing editors most remember is that being murdered does not make you notable. SADLY, thousands of people are murdered every day. If your murder is notable, then there should be an article about your murder, in this case, because it led to legislation. But Joan has an article in Wikipedia ONLY because she was a famous equestrian, and that should be what the BULK of her article is about. Currently, her career is only mentioned briefly. The unfortunate circumstances surrounding bet alleged murder should be a section that points to the larger article about that. For reference, the child whose abduction and murder led to the Amber Alert legislation doesn't have an article at all since, being a small child, she didn't accomplish much in life. But she is mentioned in the article of Amber Alert. I began to do some research and there is quite a bit of info on her career out there. I will begin to work on it.--13:57, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
That sounds great. I agree we need more details about what made her notable, so anything you can add would be much appreciated. The book I have doesn't go into great depth about her career in the way Wikipedia tends to with sportspeople, instead concentrating more on her personal life; the influence her father had over her, her marriage to John Hill, and the events surrounding and following her death. I've also wondered if Ash Robinson should have an article of his own, but am not sure if he'd pass the guidelines. Although he accrued several fortunes and became a prominent figure in Houston, it appears to be his quest for justice following Joan's death that makes him notable in a wider sense. This is Paul (talk) 19:22, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Not sure about Ash either, since I am not really knowledgeable enough on the topic. Otherwise, I look forward to working with you.--Esprit15d • talkcontribs 22:14, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
