Help Project newsletter : Issue 6[edit]

The Help Project Newsletter

Issue VI - April 2013

Open Help Conference

The Open Help Conference will be taking place June 15-19 in Cincinnati Ohio, USA. The conference includes two days of presentations and open discussions, followed by team "sprints" - collaborative efforts to write and improve documentation.

It has been suggested to send a team from Wikipedia/Wikimedia: to share our own knowledge about help, learn from others in the open source community working on similar problems, and to carry out a sprint to improve some aspect of Wikipedia's help.

There may be support available for volunteers to attend from the Participation Support program (and your editor is certainly hoping to be there!) Please join the discussion in Meta's IdeaLab if you're interested, and/or have suggestions about what we could work on.

Other news

If you don't wish to receive this newsletter on your talk page in future then just edit the participants page and add "no newsletter" next to your name.

Suggestions for future issues are welcome at Wikipedia:Help Project/Newsletter.

Chuck Pierce proposed deletion[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up. Although Chuck Pierce is almost certainly qualified under notability, I agree that the article doesn't reflect this. I'm not going to have a lot of time to edit in the next month, but will work on improving the article as I have time. Thanks again. Waitak (talk)

Concerning deleted article Society for Planetary SETI Research[edit]

Hello Ukepat

About 5 weeks ago I sent the following message to I have received no response or acknowledgement. I would greatly appreciate your help.

Horace Crater >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The note below is in response to the Speedy Deletion of a submitted article on The Society for Planetary SETI Research.

Please let me know if the material I provide below is sufficient for me to use the first few paragraphs from my website http://spsr.utsi. in the formation of my proposed Wikepedia articles. Let me know if there is any thing else I can provide to you.


The following sentences were formed based on the website

I hereby affirm that I, (Horace Crater), am the creator and sole owner of the exclusive copyright of the web site I agree to publish a portion of that work under the free license "Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported" and GNU Free Documentation License (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts).

I acknowledge that I cannot withdraw this agreement, and that the content may or may not be kept permanently on a Wikimedia project.

My name is Horace Crater. The web site is a faculty web site at the University of Tennessee Space Institute. I am the owner of the content of that web site. I wish to use only a portion of that web site ( for which I am copyright owner (in particular the introductory descriptive paragraphs as an introduction to a proposed Wikipedia article). Since I am the owner there is no issue of copyright for that text. I am a professor at my institute and my email address is The web master here can verify the information I am sending to you.

I'm sorry but I cannot help. The permissions queue is usually pretty backlogged but the OTRS volunteers will get to it eventually.--ukexpat (talk) 01:19, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

The Signpost: 20 August 2014[edit]



please i have not been able to submit the article , i would appreciate a guide that can help me t com[let this profile .. regards Arinzea (talk) 12:49, 26 August 2014 (UTC) Arinze Arinzea (talk) 12:49, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

I assume you are referring to User:Arinzea/sandbox? To submit it you would click the green "Submit your draft for review!" button in the box at the top of the draft. But I wouldn't do it yet as the article is far too promotional in tone and would almost certainly be rejected. I suggest that you take a look at articles about similar companies to see how they are written. Also, if you copied and pasted text from the company's website, that's a copyright violation and not permitted. You must write the text yourself. I hope this helps.--ukexpat (talk) 12:54, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Beatrice Looi[edit]


Good day! I wrote an article about a living person on which I believed to be a notable person. I created Beatrice Looi yesterday and I was really wondering why my article has been removed/delete. I hope you can help me with this matter. Please do enlighten me.

Respectfully MarjaniMrsmarjanilee (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 07:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

As indicated by the messages on your talk page, it was deleted because it was too promotional in tone, reading more like an advert for the subject than a neutral, encyclopedic, article. Please take a look at WP:SPAM.--ukexpat (talk) 12:01, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
