WP:Co-op: Presentation at Wikimania 2015[edit]

CO-OP Logo 2.png

Hey Missionedit. I've put in a submission for a presentation at Wikimania 2015 called Is Two the Magic Number?: The Co-op and New Editor Engagement through Mentorship. I'll be talking about the state of finding help spaces on and how our new mentorship space, The Co-op, factors into that picture. Reviewing will begin soon and I'll need your help to be able to present our work. Please review our proposal and give us feedback. If you would be interested in seeing this presentation, whether you are attending or not, please add your name to the signup at the bottom of the proposal (you do not need to attend Wikimania to express interest in presentations). I, JethroBT drop me a line on behalf of Wikipedia:Co-op.

Co-op: Mentor profiles and final pilot prep[edit]

CO-OP Logo 2.png

Hey mentors, two announcements:

  1. You can now make your profile at The Co-op! Please set up your mentor profile here as soon as you are able, as the pilot begins on March 4th. It isn't very involved and should only take a minute. If you need more info about what the different skills mean (e.g. writing, communication), please refer to these descriptions.
  2. Profile creation, invitations, and automated matching of editors, profile creation, that will be coordinated through HostBot and a few gadgets may not be ready for our pilot, and will have to be done manually until they are ready. In preparation for the pilot, please read over these instructions on how we will be manually performing these tasks until the automated components are ready. I, JethroBT drop me a line on behalf of Wikipedia:Co-op.

Once you have added a source you can remove {Citation needed|March2015}. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 02:47, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

You have own it because you are very talented editor Rowdy srezan (talk) 15:28, 4 March 2015 (UTC)


Hi!Anastasia its me Rowdy srezan again.I would to suggest that if you had made more than 75000 edit why dont you nominate for admins.ill be there to support you.And Happy holi Rowdy srezan (talk) 02:31, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

@Rowdy srezan: Oh, that's so nice of you! Thank you for the compliment. The main reason I haven't tried to become an administrator is that I really don't have the time to be one. It is a very complicated and rigorous process to become an admin, for which you need to meet lots of specific requirements. I appreciate your support, though :) ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 03:50, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
@Rowdy srezan: Thank you, but I am not interested in a relationship. My interactions on Wikipedia are strictly professional. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 18:11, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

@Rowdy srezan: Ok, good for you :) If you want, there are lots of navigation bars to choose from besides mine at Wikipedia:User page design center/Menus and subpages. You might want to take a look at that first. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 17:03, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
After looking all the menus I would like to use Menu#15.Rowdy srezan 04:34, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
@Rowdy srezan: Would you like help with anything? ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 01:22, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
No thanks If I need then I will leave you message. Rowdy srezan 01:54, 11 March 2015 (UTC)


I have two questions One what does patrolled mean? And two,how do you create a new page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pythonessofdelphi (talkcontribs) 15:45, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

@Pythonessofdelphi: 1. If a page has been patrolled, that means someone else besides the creator has checked it over and thinks it is OK to include on Wikipedia.
2. For less experienced users, the best way to create an article is by using the WP:Articles for creation process. Go to the page and follow the directions for creating an article.
I'm really too busy to take on a full-time adoptee right now, but would suggest that you look for mentoring help at the newly-started Wikipedia:Co-op, who will be happy to help! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. Happy editing! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 20:42, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the help, I often get things confused and patrolled was one of those things up until now. I will be looking forward to starting a new page. Also with the Wikipedia:Co-op whenever I type my username into the box that says 'type username here' and click find mentor, it redirects me to a blank page that says 'you are creating a new page on Wikipedia'.How do I fix that?(PythonessofDelphi🐍 (talk) 01:19, 16 March 2015 (UTC))
@Pythonessofdelphi: That is supposed to happen :) When you type in your name, you are redirected to create your own profile, or "page", in the Co-op. Follow all the directions near the top of the page and create it. This will help a mentor who wants to help come and find you. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 18:02, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Page Creation[edit]

@Missionedit okay, I know you probably get this everyday, and I'm sorry for the repetition,but I am having a few difficulties with creating a page. I would really liked a user page and to have a mentor, both of those things require me to make a page. I am using a kindle to access wikipedia, and I think there is something about the kindle that makes it very hard to make a page, I just can't click the save button. Could you please either tell me how I can fix this, or help me start a user page, be cause I seem to have no problem editing old pages on here, just starting new ones. thanks! I also was wondering how you get those nice user tables on your page that list you name, race, religion, home country, hobbies, etc. And I just wanted to say that I is really cool that you have Star Wars quotes on your page!😊(BluJay (talk) 01:31, 19 March 2015 (UTC))

Hi, BluJay! I'm happy to help :) I don't have a kindle, so I don't know how that works. What I do want to know is how you can leave messages on my page if you can't use the save page button. To create a page, you click the same button as you would to edit a page. Is the button missing when you try to create a page? The box on my page is called a user infobox, which you can find the template for at Template:Infobox user. Just enter your information in the fields, and add it to your page. I created it to save you the trouble, Thanks-- I like my Star Wars quotes, too ;) ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 02:58, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Missionedit I don't really know why I can edit pages, but not create them. I just know that when I go to create a page, it looks different than when I edit one, and creating a page doesn't work on my kindle. Thank you so much though! also, on you questionable about adoption, either way is fine with me! I I love smilies too!,😊😁😝One more questionable, when you are "cleaning up" articles, how do you know what nerds to be fixed on them?(BluJay (talk) 23:30, 19 March 2015 (UTC))
@BluJay: Sorry, I forgot to create your user page!--there you go. I'll set up your adoption page as soon as I can. Sorry I don't know how to help with the creating page problem; like I said, I don't have a kindle. About your last question--what do you mean by "nerds"? ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 18:38, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much for creating a page for me! I'll just have to talk to people whenever pages may need created, and get help with it if I can't get my kindle to let me. You wouldn't know what I meant by "nerds" because that's not what I typed. Unfortunately, kindles autocorrect things rather harshly, at least mine does, and it only changes the words after I hit save, most times I look back over and can catch any mistakes, but I guess I overlooked that one. I meant something along the lines of "how do you know what [things] need to be fixed on [The pages filed under "need cleaning up"]" Thanks for helping me out!(BluJay (talk) 01:06, 21 March 2015 (UTC))

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thanks for catching that picture on my user page! AmazingAlec (talk) 20:37, 20 March 2015 (UTC)


Hiya Missionedit! I was recently looking at the adopt-a-user program and saw that you are on the list of users who are currently accepting adoptees. If you are still looking for someone else to adopt, I would be glad to learn from you about Wikipedia. I joined several days ago and took the Wikipedia Adventure, learning about basic editing. In the future, I would like to be able to take my Wikipedia experience to the next level by being a regular (and valued) contributor to the site. To be able to do accomplish this, I have learned that being mentored by another more experienced user can be very beneficial. I have been reading Wikipedia articles for a long time and understand the time and devotion it takes.

If you cannot currently accept another student right now, I understand, being a very busy person myself.

AmazingAlec (talk) 22:17, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Goodness, I'm going to have to change my profile to very busy :) I'd be glad to adopt you, but you must understand that I might not respond immediately to questions and such. If this is OK with you, I'll create your adoption page ASAP. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 23:03, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I do understand that you will be busy if you create an adoption page for me, and, if you can handle it, I'd be glad to be adopted. If you cannot do this, it's ok. Don't feel pressured. AmazingAlec (talk) 23:42, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
No, it's ok, I just may take a bit longer in posting lessons than usual. :) So it's settled? ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 00:00, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
I guess so! :D AmazingAlec (talk) 00:02, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! AmazingAlec (talk) 00:03, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
@AmazingAlec: You're welcome :) Your classroom is at User:Missionedit/Adoption/AmazingAlec. There's some questions waiting there for you to get started. I would suggest you put the page on your watchlist so you can know when I edit it. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 00:15, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
@Missionedit: Ok. I've answered your questions. Sorry for the late response. AmazingAlec (talk) 14:15, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi, and thank you. I'm very interested in getting my proposed article about Martha Brockenbrough published. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.JameswoodSK (talk) 02:11, 21 March 2015 (UTC)James
