Question about page creation duplication : 2 August 2014[edit]

Good Morning, I have a question and I don't know if you can help me. There is an NFL player that has different links in Wikipedia to his name but didn't have an article. The problem is that some links refer to him to L'Damian Washington and others as L’Damian Washington. I didn't know how to link both names to just one article so I created two articles (one with each name). This is not the best way to do it, so do you know who can help me with this problem ?. Thanks.

Candidate nominations for Guild coordinators to serve from January 1 to June 30, 2015, are currently underway. The nomination period will close at 23:59 on December 15 (UTC), after which voting will commence until 23:59 on December 31, 2014. Self-nominations are welcomed. Please consider getting involved; it's your Guild and it won't coordinate itself, so if you'd like to help coordinate Guild activities we'd love to hear from you.

Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Baffle gab1978, and Miniapolis.

Request for help from an obviously new user[edit]

Hello Theopolisme. I'm a teacher at a photography college and want to use Wikipedia for an assignment next semester.

I need someone who will help me with the more ridiculous questions I will have! For example, I have requested a course page and I have had a response, but the page doesn't seem to have been created (or I don't know where to find it). Would you be willing to help me along a little bit as I learn how to work with Wikipedia? Looking forward to hearing from you. Louisa. Louibu (talk) 23:11, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in November's Backlog Elimination Drive. Of the 43 people who signed up for this drive, 26 copy edited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Progress report: The November Drive removed 26 requests from the Requests page and 509 articles from the {{copy edit}} backlog. We copy edited 83 articles tagged in the target months; July, August, and September 2013. Together with tag removals from articles unsuitable for copy editing, we eliminated July 2013 from the backlog and reduced August and September's tags to 61 and 70 respectively. As of 01:01, 1 December 2014 (UTC), the backlog stood at 1,974 articles, dipping below 2,000 for the first time in the Guild's history (see graph at right). Well done everyone!

Blitz: The December Blitz will run from December 14–20 and will focus on articles related to Religion, in recognition of this month's religious holidays in much of the English-speaking world. Awards will be given out to everyone who copy edits at least one of the target articles. Sign up here!

Election time again: The election of coordinators to serve from 1 January to 30 June 2015 is now underway. Candidates can nominate themselves or others from December 01, 00:01 (UTC), until December 15, 23:59. The voting period will run from December 16, 00:01 (UTC), until December 31, 23:59. You can read about coordinators' duties here. Please consider getting involved and remember to cast you vote—it's your Guild and it doesn't organize itself!

Thank you all once again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve anything without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Baffle gab1978, and Miniapolis.
