Template:WikiProject United States[edit]

Greetings OR and thanks for your contributions. I noticed your talk page edit at Template talk:WikiProject United States to add a GLAM project to the list of supported projects. Unfortunately I had to remove all the GLAM projects from the template so we cannot do that. This was because several editors (some of which don't even participate in WPUS) felt that the WPUS project was overreaching its scope and some of the GLAM projects had content that was too far removed from WPUS (Paintings, artists and other content unrelated to the US). Rather than include only the content that pertained to the US and share that between the 2 projects, the consensus required the removal of the GLAM projects and the cease of support from WPUS. Which also means several of the GLAM projects don't have any active support. Which I feel is unfortunate and you can probably sense my irritation in that decision. Anyway, just wanted to let you know. Take care and happy editing. Kumioko (talk) 16:48, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

The reason given for METROtrain6's block is that the username is incorrect. This was my fault, but I understand now why the block happened. I created that account because I'm a WiR and I'm doing a training at Queens Public Library tomorrow and many of the people I will be training have a block IP address at their institution. I created that account here, so it could be passed on to someone at the training to begin using. I now understand that I should have never created an account for someone else, but I need my account to be unblocked in order to help facilitate the training tomorrow. Please write back if you have further concerns.OR drohowa (talk) 18:08, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of East Art Map[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article East Art Map has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No indication of mainstream coverage, fails WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:31, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

More biographies are not the answer to such concerns but they are probably part of the solution. If someone can manage to verify a biography then that also would probably result in more journalism about people's projects. I really would like more journalism to cover academia because the existing self-publications and press releases are not a good long-term strategy for outreach.

Hi![edit]

It was great meeting you yesterday! I'd love to get to know you better, so please let me know if you'd like a museum buddy or something. I used to go to MoMA every Friday until I started going to Occu-Evolve meetings every Friday. --Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 21:08, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

When I visited the New York Hall of Science, I thought it seemed too much like a children's museum, even though it wasn't officially. Being broke, there are plenty of NYC museums I still haven't visited. I was in Jacksonville, Florida for 4 months to the day (arrived January 16, 2012; departed-May 15, 2012), of which I was employed for about 3 1/2 months. I visited two museums there (Wikipedia shows that there are nine total). Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens is the best--it's kind of a mini Met. Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville was a bit disappointing because their special exhibitions take up almost the entirety of the museum, other than the classroom area (mostly for kids), the auditorium, cafe, and gift shop. They have a permanent collection, but it's kept in storage if it's not related to the special exhibition, presumably at University of North Florida, which runs it. I've been to more art galleries than I can name, but mostly my museum going in NYC has been MoMA, Met, and AMNH, plus some library exhibitions. The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is so cool that I know people who have had their weddings there. --Scottandrewhutchins (talk) 23:27, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Dorothy, I just wanted to bring Wikimedia LGBT, a proposed user group and thematic organization that promotes the development of content on Wikimedia projects which is of interest to LGBT communities, to your attention. I am sure you are so busy with your current projects, but I hope you might be able to direct people to this group if they are interested in LGBT content in any way. Of course, you are also more than welcome to indicate your interest/support, if you wish. Hopefully we can get some LGBT-related GLAM projects up and running in the near future. Best, --Another Believer (Talk) 19:34, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! This organization has 110% of my support and I will pass along the information if they are interested. There are a few LGBT organizations in New York that I've been trying to get interested in Wikipedia that may take to this.

WP:Exhibitions[edit]

Hi! Well I seem to be the first to take up your invitation. I have to say I'm not sure I see the need for a new wikiproject. Unless they are well supported they are probably better off remaining part of a larger one. I'm a bit dubious about articles about current one-off exhibitions (though I've done at least one myself), and they usually get very few readers, even while the show is on; look at the views (from Dec 12 when he stopped editing it) for the exemplary Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900, now running in London - about 17 a day. Google will nearly always take you to better info & reviews easily enough. Ones from the past that have turned out to be significant are a different matter, as are regular biennials etc. I've worked on a few articles in the category, but it's not something I'm likely to turn into a big part of my editing. Sorry to be discouraging! All the best for the holidays & NY, Johnbod (talk) 22:12, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your comments. I would agree that the traffic for articles about exhibitions is fairly small but I think that they can still be very solid research tools for people interested in museum history, art history etc. and the curation/framing/institutionalization of research and artifacts. In my experience working in GLAM, I also think these articles could be improved dramatically with institutional editing by archives, libraries, and museum collections workers editing for GLAM projects down the line. I was talking to User:DGG recently about expanding the scope of this project to include also articles on conferences, curatorial projects, and events at public events spaces. These articles are being written but because of lack of guidelines, are often at risk for deletion. Perhaps the title of the WikiProject could be expanded to be something like 'WikiProject Curated exhibitions and conferences.' I also think the scientific coverage on Wikipedia would be especially benefited by standards for articles on conferences such as for example Lunar and Planetary Science Conference- because assembling research, ideas, and findings by conference is a way to preserve the evolutions of particular scientific and research communities. User:DGG and I discussed creating a list of potential candidate articles for such a WikiProject. Perhaps I will do that below:

Hi, So this is going to be an ongoing project and it is a private invite-only physical event so the organizer doesn't want the notice to go out to the public. Can you help me get the WikiProject page back or will I need to wait for whoever deleted it to put it back?? OR drohowa (talk) 15:33, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
I cannot undelete as I'm not an admin. I think Fram's objection is that this project seems to be invite only, contrary to how Wikiprojects are supposed to work. To get around the bureaucracy, maybe create a set of pages in your user space? Or get the organizer to create an account and create pages in her user space? --NeilN talk to me 15:45, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
The thing is the online project itself won't be invite-only. Most WikiProject are only online and that is where the 'open to all' aspect would play into it. As far as I know, WP cannot tell you that you have to invite any wikipedian to any wikipedia event you are hosting. this event is in this woman's house and i think it's understandable why she wouldn't want it to by totally open IRL. It will definitely be open online though! thoughts? OR drohowa (talk) 16:13, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Then I would make a post at WP:AN, requesting the content to be undeleted. State you are organizing a group of contributors meeting in real life focusing on editing topic x but anyone else is free to join the online project. --NeilN talk to me 17:06, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

I restored the page, and then moved it to Wikipedia:Sundays at Parmer/Tab header/Tab. Hope that helps. The problem was, it was at [[Wikiproject:xxxx]] instead of [[Wikipedia:xxxx]] -- since there is no namespace called "Wikiproject", this appeared in the main namespace, as though it were a Wikipedia article. WikiProject pages typically exist in the Wikipedia: namespace. Make sense? Let me know if you want some help setting these pages up. -Pete (talk) 04:21, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum[edit]

Hi. I have filled out the history section of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum article, a project that I had been meaning to get to. As we discussed, the article could now use:

  • 1. Collections: As soon as there are WP articles on the various collections shown in the NY museum, we can create a Collections section that briefly summarizes these, with appropriate cross references to the full articles. Alternatively, you and/or the Guggenheim/GLAM participants could write a section on collections now (it is essential that each paragraph be amply referenced) about the highlights of each collection shown in the NY museum, and the cross references to fuller articles can be added later once those articles are up.
  • 2. Exhibitions - A section containing brief paragraphs about the most important and popular historical exhibitions at the NY museum.
  • 3. Operations/number of visitors/comparisons with other similar museums?
  • 4. Collaborations at the NY museum (we should be able to take much of this info from the Foundation's article)
  • 5. Current projects that have been discussed in the press.

I'll copy this to the Guggenheim Glam page. -- Ssilvers (talk) 23:45, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 18:46, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet for Wikipedia Art and Feminism at Wikimania 2014[edit]

Thanks for signing up to get a leaflet printed at Wikimania 2014.

I noticed that you have not included a logo.Please try and get the logo to us as soon as possible.

Thanks

Adikhajuria (talk) 12:18, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi drohowa. I also noticed that the "short description" and "longer descriptions" were over the word limit. Is there any chance you could try to edit those fields so they are within the limits please?
Additionaly, we're doing our best to make these leaflets intelligible to non-wikipedians, and we think your leaflet could be confusing for them; try and include a clearer "call to action" - what are some specific ways they could get involved? We think Wikiproject Military History is a good example to follow.
Thanks

Greg Kohs and WikiConference USA[edit]

Dear OR drohowa: Is this report accurate: WikiConference USA bans critic from open meeting? If it is accurate do you know if a response from the conference organizers is forthcoming? I won't spend time explaining exactly how upsetting this is and how very bad it looks on its face until the accuracy of the report is confirmed. It looks really bad, though, and I really hope there's a plausible explanation. Note that I'm not asking about the rejection of Kohs's presentation, but only about the allegation that he was barred from an event touted as "open to all participants, regardless of previous level of involvement with Wikipedia or the Wikimedia projects. We welcome the curious, the skeptical, and others wishing to engage in meaningful conversation about the Wikimedia movement in the United States, free culture and digital rights, advocacy and outreach, community building, and technology." I posted the same question on Newyorkbrad's talk page, but he declined to respond substantively. I am also leaving it on the talk pages of the other conference organizers.alf laylah wa laylah (talk) 14:45, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited! Wiki Loves Pride

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride, a global campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia during the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. The project is being spearheaded by two organizers with roots in the Pacific Northwest. Meetups are being organized in some cities, or you can participate remotely. Wikimedia Commons will also be hosting an LGBT-related photo challenge.

In Portland, there are two ways to contribute. One is a photography campaign called "Pride PDX", for pictures related to LGBT culture and history. The Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, June 21 from noon–4pm at Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 236 at Portland State University. Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own laptops and cords.

Feel free to showcase your work here!

Badlands Unlimited[edit]

hi dorothy, was wondering if you might be interested in helping me with an article i'm trying to get through the approval process. i noticed you created the printed matter, inc page, and thought perhaps you might be familiar with the article in question (i worked at printed matter for a year). i'm currently in the process of making a page for Badlands Unlimited, an art press focused on contemporary art. you can find the page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/Badlands_Unlimited. i'm reaching out to you as you seem to have a lot of experience writing wiki pages, whereas i have little to none. i understand if you are too swamped pursuing topics more befitting your interests, just wanted to ask in case Badlands might fall in that category. as you can see from the page, it's had some issues on the notability front, which is confusing to me as i've listed an abundance of sources from publications of note (new yorker, bomb, dazeddigital, complex, bookforum, frieze, dis, observer to name a few), although i am aware the arts publications industry is very insular. if you are too busy to contribute to editing, any advice on how i might get it up to snuff? or any editors who might help get this page approved? thanks for reading!

Hi, OR drohowa. :) I have restored your sandbox with attribution to the source. I see that Corensearchbot left you a note some months about how to copy within Wikipedia. This is a requirement any time you copy content from one space to another, even your sandbox I'm afraid. Content on Wikipedia is not public domain, but is liberally licensed for reuse. The license does not apply, however, if you don't meet the terms of the license, which include attribution. Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia will tell you how to do this in the future. If you've copied content between any other pages, please make sure you provide any necessary attribution.
