An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Hello there!

I'm pleased to tell you about two upcoming edit-a-thons:

We have more stuff coming up in May and June, so make sure to keep a watch on the DC meetup page. As always, if you have any recommendations or requests, please leave a note on the talk page.

CFB rivalries[edit]

Hey, P12. We are contemplating a selective purge of several non-notable CFB "rivalries" currently included in Category:College football rivalries in the United States. Would you mind sharing your observations regarding any you see as likely to be non-notable per WP:NRIVALRY and WP:GNG with me via email? Please note that there are several recently added SEC "rivalries," too. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 02:54, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hey, P12. Thanks for your quick participation in today's AfDs. It's time for a little follow-up on point . . . Could you take a look a the SEC rivalry navbox (at the bottom of any SEC team's rivalry articles), and tell me what you think about the various "rivalries" listed? For starters, I would be curious to get your Bama perspective on the newly created Bama-MSU rivalry article, but also your general reaction to other SEC "rivalries" like Georgia-Vanderbilt, Kentucky-Vandebilt, LSU-MSU, Mizzou-Texas A&M, and a critical eye on some of the lesser match-ups of our new friends from Big 12(-2) . . . Mizzou-Illinois--seriously? As always, your input is greatly appreciated. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 23:58, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
  • P12, can I get your reaction whether the following SEC games are appropriate for stand-alone Wikipedia articles?

Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 14:41, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I am pretty biased as the primary author of the Game of the Century (2011), so I will not comment on that one other than saying nearly all of the other documented Games of the Century have stand alone articles based on their overall notability. For the remainder, I can only envision Kick Bama Kick and possibly the Prayer at Jordan–Hare as being included in the lore of college football moving forward similar to games like Hail Flutie and The Play. The rest should be merged into individual season and or rivalry articles IMO. Hope this helps! Patriarca12 (talk) 11:37, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You're thinking on point is similar to my own. Discussion of the overwhelming majority of rivalry and closely decided single games deserves to be included in the main team, rivalry and season articles for the respective teams. Only truly exceptional regular season games should have stand-alone articles. (And I think the 2011 Bama-LSU game qualifies.) I plan to raise this issue on the WP:CFB talk page in the next several days as a prelude to AfD. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 11:48, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Next round of proposed CFB "rivalry" articles for AfD review[edit]

@Patriarca12: Head's up: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject College football#Next round of proposed CFB "rivalry" articles for AfD review. Your input is requested. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 01:33, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Stand-alone articles for regular season CFB games -- what's appropriate?[edit]

Hey, P12, when you have some time, can you take a look at the games listed in Category:College football games? Can you critically review the games added since 2000, and the Bama games in particular? Another editor and I have nominated 16 regular season game articles for AfD in the last 48 hours, but I believe there are probably at least another ten post-1999 game articles that should be sent to AfD, too. Please let me know what you think. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 15:39, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Patriarca, I'd like to get your opinion on this revised infobox template for college football players: [1]. After determining what data points to include, we'll recruit a template editor to handle the coding for us. Once we determine what fields we're adding and what we're deleting, then we'll work on the modified graphics. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 12:45, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

P12, here's a sneak peel at how the revamped CFB player infobox is going: Template:Infobox college football player/testcases#Joe Cool (typical example). What do you think of the colors, graphics, and layout and design? In particular, how do you like the "college varsity stripe" graphics? Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:25, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
