Mentoring[edit]

Yes, I am still looking for one. I'm pretty unsure when I edit anything on Wikipedia. Artheartsoul1 (talk) 01:03, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Help with this article[edit]

I'm writing this article Mathias 'Paddy' Bauler, about a crooked Chicago alderman - want to help? There's been a lot written about him. Also, do you know anyone who might want to help delve into biographies (however short) about aldermen? It's sad that we don't have easy access to our own history. Victor Grigas (talk) 03:01, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Victorgrigas: Hey Victor. That sounds like interesting work. I'm sure you've been able to pull up some interesting stories on neighborhood politics around here, both historical and current! I'd like to help right now, but, I'll probably need to wait until May when I'll be finished with my IEG grant for The Co-op-- there's a lot of writing and reporting to do. Maybe you could send me a reminder next month? I, JethroBT drop me a line 18:43, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

This summer's Wiknic![edit]

Hey man. Looks like we've got July 5 or 24 to choose from (nobody's created the page yet). I'm leaning toward the 24th since I'll be hosting people from across the pond on the 5th. Would the 24th be amendable? Should we perhaps, in true Wikipedia fashion, do a straw poll? Drummerdg (talk) 04:34, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Drummerdg: July 25th is a Saturday, the 24th is a Friday. TeriEmbrey (talk) 18:54, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
PMML can be a host site on Saturday, July 25th, especially if someone is willing to work on a page for Erasmus Corwin Gilbreath. The Museum & Library is publishing Gilbreath's journal and the corresponding exhibit opens at the end of June. TeriEmbrey (talk) 19:02, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
@TeriEmbrey: Eep, looks like they changed the date! But yeah that sounds good.Drummerdg (talk) 04:18, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Mentoring assistance in working with moderators who aren't responding[edit]

hi,,,,can u help me work through an issue i have with getting a moderator to stop undoing the work our ISO standards committee has been trying to achieve through putting accurate info out onto wikipedia? Please email me and let me know how to resolve when moderator doesn't respond or understand the issue...

thanks very much,, — Preceding unsigned comment added by ISO-Convener (talkcontribs) 14:48, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@ISO-Convener: I'm not sure there is much to resolve here. The text you've used is copyrighted (even if it was taken down). Wikipedia has specific policies that copyright text cannot be used. Even if the text is released under a free license, there are other concerns because the tone of the source text is not appropriate for an encyclopedia, and the topic does not appear to have coverage in multiple, independent, reliable sources.
