Museum hacks and museum edits[edit]

Hello there!

Upcoming events:

  • February 6–8: The third annual ArtBytes Hackathon at the Walters Art Museum! This year Wikimedia DC is partnering with the Walters for a hack-a-thon at the intersection of art and technology, and I would like to see Wikimedia well represented.
  • February 11: The monthly WikiSalon, same place as usual. RSVP on Meetup or just show up!
  • February 15: Wiki Loves Small Museums in Ocean City. Mary Mark Ockerbloom, with support from Wikimedia DC, will be leading a workshop at the Small Museum Association Conference on how they can contribute to Wikipedia. Tons of representatives from GLAM institutions will be present, and we are looking for volunteers. If you would like to help out, check out "Information for Volunteers".

I am also pleased to announce events for Wikimedia DC Black History Month with Howard University and NPR. Details on those events soon.

If you have any questions or have any requests, please email me at james.hare@wikimediadc.org.

See you there! – James Hare

Now, I am very pleased to announce:

There is going to be a lot going on, and I hope you can come to some of the events!

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 1[edit]

Hi! Thank you for subscribing to the WikiProject X Newsletter. For our first issue...

Has WikiProject X changed the world yet? No.

We opened up shop last month and announced our existence to the world. Our first phase is the "research" phase, consisting mostly of reading and listening. We set up our landing page and started collecting stories. So far, 28 stories have been shared about WikiProjects, describing a variety of experiences across numerous WikiProjects. A recurring story involves a WikiProject that starts off strong but has trouble continuing to stay active. Most people describe using WikiProjects as a way to get feedback from other editors. Some quotes:

  • "Working on requested articles, utilising the reliable sources section, and having an active WikiProject to ask questions in really helped me learn how to edit Wikipedia and looking back I don't know how long I would have stayed editing without that project." – Sam Walton on WikiProject Video Games
  • "I believe that the main problem of the Wikiprojects is that they are complicated to use. There should be a a much simpler way to check what do do, what needs to be improved etc." – Tetra quark
  • "In the late 2000s, WikiProject Film tried to emulate WP:MILHIST in having coordinators and elections. Unfortunately, this was not sustainable and ultimately fell apart." – Erik

Of course, these are just anecdotes. While they demonstrate what is possible, they do not necessarily explain what is typical. We will be using this information in conjunction with a quantitative analysis of WikiProjects, as documented on Meta. Particularly, we are interested in the measurement of WikiProject activity as it relates to overall editing in that WikiProject's subject area.

We also have 50 people and projects signed up for pilot testing, which is an excellent start! (An important caveat: one person volunteering a WikiProject does not mean the WikiProject as a whole is interested; just that there is at least one person, which is a start.)

While carrying out our research, we are documenting the problems with WikiProjects and our ideas for making WikiProjects better. Some ideas include better integration of existing tools into WikiProjects, recommendations of WikiProjects for people to join, and improved coordination with Articles for Creation. These are just ideas that may or may not make it to the design phase; we will see. We are also working with WikiProject Council to improve the directory of WikiProjects, with the goal of a reliable, self-updating WikiProject directory. Stay tuned! If you have any ideas, you are welcome to leave a note on our talk page.

That's all for now. Thank you for subscribing!

Editing 1896 Presidential Ticket Box for Populist Inclusion[edit]

I have been trying to edit the Presidential Ticket Box to display the vote Jennings Bryan recieved on the Democratic and People's tickets seperately, with a third row for the total "complete" vote of the two, similar to how they are done with fusion tickets in New York. However I am unsure how to do this given the construction of the box is different from the more generic kinds I have used elsewhere, and experimentation has led nowhere. Essentially I am trying to restructure the box so it displays:
  • Presidential Candidate
    • Rows 1-3: William Jennings Bryan
  • Party
    • Row 1: Democratic
    • Row 2: Peoples's
    • Row 3: Total
  • Home State
    • Rows 1-3: Nebraska
  • Popular Vote (Count)
    • Row 1: 6,286,469
    • Row 2: 222,583
    • Row 3: 6,509,052
  • Popular Vote (%)
    • Row 1: 45.11%
    • Row 2: 1.60%
    • Row 3: 46.70%
  • Electoral Vote
    • Row 1: 149
    • Row 2: 27
    • Row 3: 176
  • Running Mate (Vice Presidential Candidate)
    • Row 1: Arthur Sewall
    • Row 2: Thomas E. Watson
    • Row 3: Greyed Out
  • Running Mate (Home State)
    • Row 1: Maine
    • Row 2: Georgia
    • Row 3: Greyed Out
  • Running Mate (Electoral Vote)
    • Row 1: 149
    • Row 2: 27
    • Row 3: Greyed Out
Now while this isn't important in the scheme of things, I'd like to know how to do it because I also plan(ned) on posting the state-by-state totals for the seperate Democratic and Peoples's tickets, and I fully understand how to work with the table used there tedious as it may be to edit. I ultimately figured that it would be better that the data in the Presidential Ticket box should match with the summaries in the State-by-State box (even though presently, due to me holding off, it doesn't), but I'm not keen on adding a bunch of reference tags detalining the break-down of the votes in about thirty of so states between the Democratic and Peoples's tickets. --Ariostos (talk) 18:07, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Wish I could help, Ariostos, but after taking a look at the box on that page I'm afraid I don't know to implement the changes you desire. You might be able to find help at the Teahouse or the help desk. Best of luck!--JayJasper (talk) 21:21, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
