Geonotice request[edit]

Hello. I placed a request at Wikipedia:Geonotice to advertise an edit-a-thon this weekend. Would you be able to take a look at that? This is the first time I've done this, so any feedback is appreciated as to wording or formatting. Jonathunder (talk) 22:09, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your quick response. Here is the signup page for that event. Jonathunder (talk) 23:22, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you ever so much. Jonathunder (talk) 23:33, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Geonotice[edit]

Now up. I see there's a second request for Mexico City the week after - would you like me to combine the notices, or run two seperate ones? Andrew Gray (talk) 22:26, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Will be nice run two separate ones. Thanks a lot, --ProtoplasmaKid (talk) 18:21, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiCup 2015 March newsletter[edit]

One of several of Godot13's quality submissions during round 1

That's it, the first round is done, sign-ups are closed and we're into round 2. 64 competitors made it into this round, and are now broken into eight groups of eight. The top two of each group will go through to round 3, and then the top scoring 16 "wildcards" across all groups. Round 1 saw some interesting work on some very important articles, with the round leader Australia Freikorp (submissions) owing most of his 622 points scored to a Featured Article on the 2001 film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within which qualified for a times-two multiplier. This is a higher score than in previous years, as Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) had 500 points in 2014 at the end of round 1, and our very own judge, Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) led round 1 with 601 points in 2013.

In addition to Freikorp's work, some other important articles and pictures were improved during round one, here's a snapshot of a few of them:

You may also wish to know that The Core Contest is running through the month of March. Head there for further details - they even have actual prizes!

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Geonotice map[edit]

Do you know why the Google Map link at the end of lead section (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=https://tools.wmflabs.org/para/geo/geonotices) isn't working anymore? OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:22, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

No idea, I'm afraid. The KML file does seem to be generating okay. Andrew Gray (talk) 19:30, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
I think I know why. Google dropped KML support in classic Google Map view and in the process broke the tool. OhanaUnitedTalk page 13:34, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
