L.A. events on October 7 and 16[edit]

Upcoming L.A. events: Wik-Ed Women edit-a-thon (10/7, 6-10pm) and UCR edit-a-thon (10/16, 10am-4pm)

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

The Southern California Wikipedia community has two exciting events coming up in the next few weeks: a Wik-Ed Women editing session downtown designed to combat systemic bias, and a Wikipedia Loves Libraries event at UC Riverside!

Wik-Ed Women is a new monthly series of informal Wikipedia editing sessions for Los Angeles women-in-the-arts (though all are welcome) to contribute their expertise to Wikipedia, specifically expanding content about women artists. This second session will take place on Tuesday, October 7 from 6pm to 10pm at the Los Angeles Contemporary Archive downtown. Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.

The UC Riverside Wikipedia Loves Libraries event is an edit-a-thon targeting articles related to UC Riverside, SoCal, and beyond. Join students and faculty learning how to edit! This event will take place on Thursday, October 16 from 10am to 4pm at UCR's Tomás Rivera Library. Again, RSVPs are requested here.

I hope to see you there! Calliopejen1 (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 20:47, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Your Google-foo is perhaps broken...[edit]

Hello, RightCowLeftCoast. You have new messages at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/A Leading Man.

This may call for a strikethrough and withdrawal before the weight of others makes it inevitable. Thanks, Schmidt, Michael Q. 13:45, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

And by the way... see WP:OEN. WP:NF's "attributes to consider" rarely apply to new films. Just sayin'. Schmidt, Michael Q. 13:56, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
And too, when a search term is so generic (such as "A Leading Man"), it is always important to expand search parameters... adding film year, writer, stars, etc. to get measurable results. Schmidt, Michael Q. 14:02, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

About those words "joking" or "Kidding"...[edit]

I did mention that...along with the fact I was being more or less sympathetic to your argument? Please, don't jump down peoples throats.--86.190.145.114 (talk) 10:28, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

The Southern California Wikipedia community has two more events scheduled for the month of October: a water-related edit-a-thon at UC Riverside, and an Unforgetting L.A. event at the Los Angeles Archives Bazaar in conjunction with L.A. as Subject!

As part of Wikipedia Loves Libraries and to celebrate Open Access Week, UC Riverside is participating alongside other Western Waters Digital Library members in an edit-a-thon focusing on water issues. Join students and faculty learning how to edit! This event will take place on Tuesday, October 21 from 10am to 3pm at UCR's Orbach Science Library (map). RSVPs are requested here.

The Unforgetting L.A. edit-a-thon and training workshop will take place at the 9th annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar, and is hosted by online magazine East of Borneo in partnership with L.A. as Subject. Join us on Saturday, October 25 from 9am to 5pm at the USC Doheny Memorial Library (map). Beginners welcome! Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.

I hope to see you there! Calliopejen1 (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:06, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

African American article[edit]

Hi,

I appreciate your involvement in this article, but yesterday you said "I suggest WP:DROPTHESTICK, and move forward" and today we're right back to beating on this dead horse. My take is that there is one editor pushing the single-definition approach and a dozen editors are pushing for a balanced WP:NPOV definition that gives equal weight to both definitions. So why are we arguing this all over again? Mr. Swordfish (talk) 01:03, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

@Mr swordfish:, I did say that once a consensus has been created. The poll, and the related discussion may lead to more discussion, yet whatever outcome and consensus that is built from it will likely be stronger, given that more editors input will have been received. Therefore, if individuals try to overturn the outcome, they will need to show that consensus of the strength that is being built has significantly changed (less likely after such a consensus building has been done).--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 16:07, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Ok. That makes sense. My own take is that there are two "common" definitions and the article should present them both in a neutral manner. If the sources taken as a whole indicate that one is more common than another then we can give more weight to that one, but so far I haven't seen enough source material to go there. The other thing I've been fairly confident about since getting involved with this is that the more eyeballs we have on this the more likely we will arrive at a reasonable result. So, thanks for helping spread the word. Perhaps an RFC is in order? If so, I think we need to trim the options to something like:
  • Present only the census (OMB) definition.
  • Present only the "antebellum" definition.
  • Present both making it clear that different sources give different definitions.
Mr. Swordfish (talk) 15:13, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for notifying me about infobox discussion. I dont have any input at the moment other than I think it would be a good thing to increase the number of women presented. -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 23:07, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

FilAm articles[edit]

I want to compliment you on the wonderfully informative and insightful job that you have done on the Filipino-American themed articles!! It would be nice to include more coverage on the vibrant and culturally active Pinoy and Pinay communities in the NYC/NJ Tri-State region. As you would know (better than I would, certainly), there are bona fide Little Manilas in Woodside, Queens; Jersey City, NJ; and Bergenfield, NJ; in addition to many other sprouting Filipino subenclaves across the region. This community appears to be incurring a recent growth spurt, and I believe that the presence and powerful impact of this community appear to be under-reflected in Wikipedia. Even Philippine Airlines is apparently preparing to return to the NYC region as a destination, this time to JFK Airport, within a few months!

Incidentally, is the table of Filipino American populations by state, at Demographics of Filipino Americans#Population concentrations, a count of mid-census estimates (2012, 2013, etc.)? I could not find the figures in American Fact Finder.
Thank you again for all of your efforts on this topic, and keep up the great work!!

Best, Castncoot (talk) 00:49, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

@Castncoot:Thanks for the positive words. I too have spent time as a FilAm in Queens, and would like to see more content regarding FilAms in NY/NYC/NJ, if yourself or others can expand the section Demographics of Filipino Americans#New York City metropolitan area, with content verified using reliable sources, that would be very helpful. Unfortunately I haven't found many reliable sources to use to expand this section of the article.
As for the Population concentrations, it is based on the 2010 Census count, the last hard count on record, and thus more accurate than the yearly population estimations put out by the Census Bureau.
If you're interested in helping expand Filipino American related content there is always WP:WPAA, which is semi-active at the moment (but whose scope is greater than just Filipino Americans).--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:10, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@RightCowLeftCoast: Thank you for your reply! Is the population concentrations table inclusive of biracial Filipino Americans? For example, @[1], then proceeding to the "Demographic profile" link for 2010 Census figures, the figure quoted for Filipino Americans of a single race in Hawaii is 197,497, while the Wikipedia article states 342,095. Castncoot (talk) 01:30, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@Castncoot:, yes it includes multiracial Filipino Americans. This is important, IMHO, given the high rate of multiracial marriages of Filipino Americans, and the Filipino Americans that are born of those marriages.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 01:33, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@RightCowLeftCoast: OK, thank you very much! Castncoot (talk) 02:02, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@Castncoot:, is it possible that these wonderful complements can come in a form of a barnstar, so that way I can add it to my userpage?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 02:12, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Just added the proposal. Castncoot (talk) 02:27, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
