Hi Kjtobo!

I have put together a survey for female editors of Wikipedia (and related projects) in order to explore, in greater detail, women's experiences and roles within the Wikimedia movement. It'd be wonderful if you could participate!

It's an independent survey, done by me, as a fellow volunteer Wikimedian. It is not being done on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation. I hope you'll participate!

Just click this link to participate in this survey, via Google!

Any questions or concerns, feel free to email me or stop by my user talk page. Also, feel free to share this any other female Wikimedians you may know. It is in English, but any language Wikimedia participants are encouraged to participate. I appreciate your contributions - to the survey and to Wikipedia! Thank you!

Terribly short notice: Boulder WLM on 15 September[edit]

Apologies for getting this out so late, but this is all Pharos' fault. Please blame everything on Pharos.

That said, this message is just to let you know that we're having a photo hunt for Wiki Loves Monuments at 11:00 in the morning of Saturday the 15th in Boulder, probably somewhere around CU, though the exact location hasn't yet been decided. Since you have previously attended or expressed interest in other meetups in the area, hopefully you might be able to come.

Please sign up as soon as possible if you're interested; we'd love to have you along to help postpone the squirrel apocalypse. Or at least get some decent images. -— Isarra 05:02, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

WikiWomen's Collaborative[edit]

WikiWomen Unite!
Hi Kjtobo! Women around the world who edit and contribute to Wikipedia are coming together to celebrate each other's work, support one another, and engage new women to also join in on the empowering experience of shaping the sum of all the world's knowledge - through the WikiWomen's Collaborative.

As a WikiWoman, we'd love to have you involved! You can do this by:

We can't wait to have you involved, and feel free to drop by our meta page (under construction) to see how else you can participate!

Can't wait to have you involved! SarahStierch (talk) 20:29, 9 October 2012 (UTC)


You'll probably not be watching & I don't think this new-fangled Echo thing notifies, but I've replied on my talk! - Sitush (talk) 16:23, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

My wikipage[edit]

Hello, the picture that comes up on Google search beside the wikipedia is NOT my picture.

I did not link up a picture to my wikipedia as I beleive you need to have a link with the picture on it. I do not have such a link.

In in interim, can we make sure that the picture of the bald man sitting as an executive with suit and tie is removed?

I don't understand why this picture shows up besides my wikidescription when we do a search on google under my name.

Thank you for explaining,

Paul Barbeau

Mr. Barbeau, I replied over on the talk page for your article at Talk:Paul Barbeau. That image was linked by Google and not Wikipedia. I clicked the link to report it to Google as incorrect - perhaps that will help. Best wishes to you! - Karen Tobo Kjtobo (talk) 21:26, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Gtwfan52. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Brighton, Michigan, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. material regarding controversy must be referenced. If it is truly controversial, surely the newspaper has written about it. please cite that before re-adding. Thanks!

Adding references can be easy[edit]

Just follow the steps 1, 2 and 3 as shown and fill in the details

Hello! Here's how to add references from reliable sources for the content you add to Wikipedia. This helps maintain the Wikipedia policy of verifiability.

Adding well formatted references is actually quite easy:

  1. While editing any article or a wikipage, on the top of the edit window you will see a toolbar which says "Cite". Click on it.
  2. Then click on "Templates".
  3. Choose the most appropriate template and fill in as many details as you can. This will add a well formatted reference that is helpful in case the web URL (or "website link") becomes inactive in the future.
  4. Click on Preview when you're done filling out the 'Cite (web/news/book/journal)' to make sure that the reference is correct.
  5. Click on Insert to insert the reference into your editing window content.
  6. Click on Show preview to Preview all your editing changes.
  • Before clicking on Save page, check that a References header   ==References==   is near the end of the article.
  • And check that   {{Reflist}}    is directly underneath that header.
7.  Click on Save page. ...and you've just added a complete reference to a Wikipedia article.

You can read more about this on Help:Edit toolbar or see this video File:RefTools.ogv.
Hope this helps, --Gtwfan52 (talk) 01:08, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

BACKLOG OF THE WEEK Category:Pages with broken reference names[edit]

Hello - some editors fight off the vandal hordes, as I do repairing pages with citation errors. If I didn't - there would be a large backlog in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting and in Category:Pages with missing references list as in Category:Pages with broken reference names (more than 1500 yesterday). But it is impossible to work it alone. Do you know how to do a "Blitz" (excuse the comparision) to find willing editors to work on it. It is much more easier to repair references if you do it one hour, one day or one week ago after the errors were made instead of months and years after the error was done. Very, very difficult to find these errors.

Only with WikiBlame Search it is possible to find and repair such errors.

New REFBot[edit]

There is a suggestion on Wikipedia:Bot requests#New REFBot for a new REFBot working as DPL bot and BracketBot do. I beg politely for consideration. Please leave a comment if you wish. Thanks a lot in anticipation. -- Frze (talk · contribs) 04:28, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

IEEE technical societies[edit]

If you are a member of one or more of the IEEE technical societies, you may wish to identify yourself as such on Wikipedia. I’ve created Wikipedian categories for each of the 38 IEEE technical societies. The new Template:User IEEE member creates a userbox identifying the society and your membership grade and includes your user page in the relevant Wikipedian category. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a note. Yours aye,  Buaidh  18:56, 11 December 2013 (UTC) — IEEE Life Member

Thanks, Buaidh! I've changed to the Computer Society userbox. Kjtobo (talk) 21:44, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Wiknic date change to July 6?[edit]

You're signed up for Wikipedia:Meetup/Colorado/Wiknic/2014. Along with several other wicnics around the country, we're contemplating meeting on July 6 instead of June 21. Does that work for you? And we can talk about genealogy and black sheep ;) Thanks! ★NealMcB★ (talk) 16:37, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
