Nice Meeting You and Chatting about WiRs![edit]

A small cup of coffee.JPG The ideas we talked about really gave me some food for thought. Glad to see the directions you're taking, let's definitely keep the dialogue open about connecting these different programs into Open Ecologies/Communities!

Also, I wanted to mention I had an idea to help you to determine how to support the Education program. I could talk with the other Regional Ambassadors about an informal poll to get some ideas of where we can see need for support already, ways OCLC could help.

FYI: I'm leaving a message using the new WP:WikiLove feature, it's that little heart button at the tom right menu, next to the search. ^

HighBeam[edit]

Hello, I am sending this message to editors who signed up for the Women's History Month Edit-a-thon. Please help spread the word. HighBeam Research--an online, pay-for-use search engine for newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias has agreed to give free, full-access, 1-year accounts for up to 1000 Wikipedia editors to use. HighBeam has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications, most of which are not available for free elsewhere on the internet. Aside from a free 7-day trial (credit card required), access to HighBeam would cost $30 per month or $200 per year for the first year and $300 for subsequent years, so this is a wonderful, free, no-strings-attached opportunity. To qualify, editors must have at least a 1 year-old account with 1000 edits. Please add your name to the WP:HighBeam/Applications account sign-up page if you are interested. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 18:34, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Mary Lou Breslin[edit]

Hello, and it was nice to talk to you yesterday at the Edit-a-thon about Mary Lou Breslin. I see that you are working on the article through "Articles for Creation". Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 19:00, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

My new project - WWC[edit]

Hi Merrilee! I hope all is well. I wanted to stop by to share a new project with you that I am developing, called the WikiWomen's Collaborative. I would love your input about the project.

WWC needs you!
  • You can find the project page here.
  • On the talk page, you'll find a number of questions I'm seeking input on. I'm especially seeking thoughts about hosting the space off of Wikipedia (in the WordPress section). I hope you will join in on the conversation.
  • Finally, this project will be developed with volunteers from around the world who want to engage and support bringing new women to Wikipedia. If you think you'd like to be involved in some capacity, that'd be awesome. We're still working on developing roles, but, you can learn more about volunteer opportunities here.

Thank you for the consideration and I hope you'll participate in developing this exciting new project to bring more women to Wikipedia! SarahStierch (talk) 22:48, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Noun project 253.svg

The Wikimedia Foundation is partnering up with the Noun Project to run the first-ever Wikipedia Iconathon on April 6th at WMF headquarters, and you're invited!

What is an Iconathon: An iconathon is a co-design process where Wikimedia staff, the user community, and a few graphic designers collaboratively discuss what symbols could best represent a concept for an icon – for example, what's the best icon for New Editor, Revert or Oversight? Sketches will be converted into high fidelity icons by Noun Project graphic designers, and will be released under a free license for use by anyone on the Internet. Help build the free encyclopedia icon set that anyone in the world can share and reuse!

Logistics: The event runs from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm on April 6th at the Wikimedia Foundation office in San Francisco. Follow the signs at the door! We'll have plenty of paper and pens/pencils for sketching.

How to sign up: Please register here using the code 'wiki'

Hello Merrilee, You have written before for the newsletter This Month in GLAM. I see the USA is missing regarding the edition about May 2013, do you perhaps have any idea what GLAM activities were done in the USA in May? Can you perhaps write about those? Or do you know who I can ask to write about it? Thanks! (Deadline of the May edition is Friday 7 June 18:00 UTC, so in about 6 hours. If you need more time I can postpone it.) You can start writing at the page outreach:GLAM/Newsletter/May 2013/Contents/USA report. If you wish to be informed by e-mail next time, please write me at this page. You can reach me the best at nl-wiki talk page. Greetings - Romaine (talk) 12:43, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Displaying Dewey numbers on Wikipedia pages[edit]

Hi Merrilee. I've just noticed that you've joined the library project and branded yourself as a helper. I also note your connection to OCLC, and so I though I'd bring this suggestion to your attention. I first floated the idea of linking Dewey number to Wiki articles on Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Templates#Linking_Wiki_articles_to_library_classification. There was some concern about the issue of copyrights and the attitude of OCLC, which was further discussed at Wikipedia_talk:OCLC#Displaying_Dewey_numbers_on_Wikipedia_pages User:Ocaasi said he would talk to OCLC, but as yet there has been no feedback. IF, and I know it is an important IF, this would not cause a conflict of interest or cause trouble at work, then perhaps you might care to ask the question to the right person. Thanks, Martin of Sheffield (talk) 20:49, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for getting in touch! As noted in the discussion, Dewey is (and has been for some time) CC BY-NC-ND. I'm not as familiar with the Wikimedia guidelines for IP as I should be -- is this really a problem, and if it is, would specific permission be enough? I hope you saw the recent news that OCLC has declared OCNs to be public domain, because we want to encourage the use of our identifiers. Let me know what you think will work and I'll do what I can to move it forward! Thank YOU! Merrilee (talk) 21:01, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
To be honest I hadn't seen either of these items. I was aware that OCLC, and before them Forest Press had been quite enthusiastic in protecting copyright; they sued a hotel for using Dewey and I thought that publishing beyond the first 1,000 divisions could get you in trouble. If that is no longer the case then I welcome it, and there probably is not a problem. I just didn't want to drop Wiki in the copyright/IP mire. Thanks, Martin of Sheffield (talk) 21:20, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
I thought, and I could be wrong, that the hotel suit had to do with trademark, not copyright (predates my employment with OCLC, so was off my radar). Info about OCN's being in the public domain here: http://hangingtogether.org/?p=3318. The current editor of Dewey is quite a techie and also very enthusiastic about new uses of Dewey, so I'll bring this to his attention. If there's anything I can do to help advance it please do get in touch. I'm speaking to User:Ocaasi tomorrow and I'll mention we touched base about this! Merrilee (talk) 21:58, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. If you haven't so far, have a look at the sandbox pages (linked from the discussions) and feel free to use them to show to the editor. Also have a look at User:Martin of Sheffield/sandbox4 where I'm working on a rewrite of the Hartley colliery disaster. I've included one of the templates as a demonstration. I use Abridged 13 at home, so I've used it in this example! I've had a look at the OCNs, and whilst they are off this topic it is to be welcomed, provided (IMHO) that they don't cause confusion with ISBNs. As an aside, I didn't realise that the hanging together quote was Ben Franklin, but it doesn't surprise me; he turns up everywhere. I'm off to bed now; this side of the pond it is 23:30. Regards, Martin of Sheffield (talk) 22:31, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
FYI: I've just added a tag line to Hartley Colliery Disaster as an example. Martin of Sheffield (talk) 22:29, 19 October 2013 (UTC). See old version (original reverted by administrator Redrose64).Martin of Sheffield (talk) 21:56, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

October 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Marie Bashkirtseff may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • '''Marie Bashkirtseff''' (born '''Maria Konstantinovna Bashkirtseva'''; {{lang-ru|Мари́я Константи́новна Башки́рцева}}; was a

Hello Merrilee. It has been over six months since you last edited your article submission, entitled Shashi -- Japanese business histories.

Mary Lou Breslin[edit]

I have been looking through AFC submissions up for deletion as abandoned and came across one from you, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Mary Lou Breslin. This seems to be notable and I am inclined to move it to mainspace but since you are still active I thought I'd check with you first to see why you have left it mould in AFC. Avout all of it could be cited to this book source. I'll add that to the refs, doing an edit will delay deletion for another six months. SpinningSpark 14:53, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

AFD of List of Dewey Decimal classes[edit]

I have put in a deletion request for List of Dewey Decimal classes as it appears to be a copyright violation.

Hey Merilee. I'm just getting to know this tool: Wikimetrics (you can use your WP account to sign in). Have you tried it?
