Thanks to the contributions of our many members and supporters, WP:YORKS has become a leading local British WikiProject in terms of the total number of articles supported (up from 11,759 last month to 11,786 on February 26th). In the area of GAs WP:YORKS at 113 is ahead of WP:GM who have 84. WP:GM has the lead in FAs at 57 out of a total number of 3,470 articles.
Currently we have thirty three Yorkshire featured articles:
The number has been kept deliberately low to give us a fighting chance of improving them to at least GA status, also so we can concentrate our efforts on these first.
There is an edit-a-thon on the subject of Art+Feminism to be held at the Hepworth Wakefield on Sunday 8 March 2015. Any members who fit the criteria "Women and allies of all genders, including non-binary gender identities" in the Wakefield area who can get to the event would be welcome to participate. For more information and to sign-up see the event page.
WikiProject Yorkshire Collaboration of the Month Project
The March 2015 articles selected below are an editor choice as there were no further suggestions from the project talk page.
The project is subscribed to a clean-up listing which lists articles tagged with various clean-up tags that need attention. The listing is refreshed by a bot on a regular basis.
Monitoring is essential
Use the watchlist to keep an eye on changes to the project's articles so that vandalism and spamming can be removed as quickly as possible.
Please be careful when performing articles moves and ensure that you also move all the talk sub-pages and update any image fair use rational. Otherwise the archives, to-do lists, assessment comments and GA reviews get lost and the image may be deleted as it has an incorrect FUR. You will also have to check that the Commons link is set correctly.
Comments, questions and suggestions about this, or any, issue of the newsletter are always welcome and can be made by pressing the feedback button below...

Disambiguation link notification for March 4
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited SS Yarmouth (1903), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Lightship (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:30, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
✓Done. Resolved. Nthep (talk) 09:45, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
Will add to the article tomorrow. Bit late now and I've been on the scrumpy! Mjroots (talk) 23:18, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Please do, it caught my attention because it was mentioned in a book of railway miscellany and stories; and the only good source I could find was the inquiry into its loss. Nthep (talk) 23:20, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your recent help on this article. As regards your query concerning the citation, I was attempting to include the title of the chapter in the book. The chapter is called "The Two Lucies." I'm unsure of whether this was also the title of Moore's lecture. As I was using the cite book template I'm now unsure how to add in this piece of information back into the citation appropriately. Sorry! I'm still very much a beginner when it comes to Wikipedia markup. Anyway, thanks again for your assistance. It was much appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ambrosia10 (talk • contribs) 10:00, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for using VisualEditor and sharing your ideas with the developers.
The Editing team is asking for your help with VisualEditor. I am contacting you because you were one of the very first testers of VisualEditor, back in 2012 or early 2013. Please tell them what they need to change to make VisualEditor work better for you. The team has a list of top-priority problems, but they also want to hear about small problems. These problems may make editing less fun, take too much of your time, or be as annoying as a paper cut. The Editing team wants to hear about and try to fix these small things, too.
Hello, you just deleted a picture of my Uncle (Chris Matthews), that I have full permission to use. I stated in my form that he is my family and I have personal permission to use the photo. Please reverse the deletion.
@KZacrep: You gave the source as Twitter and there was no evidence of permission. Permission is required from the copyright holder (normally the photographer) and it needs to be submitted using the process laid out at WP:CONSENT. Nthep (talk) 19:54, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Is there a reason you deleted the edits I made to add his family information, such as his children, in the appropriate space?
That wasn't me, I only dealt with the image, not the article on your Uncle. Nthep (talk) 20:22, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
