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.
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
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)

Hello, There are more references to be placed on the article, Salvatory L Mosha. I believe the subject was a public figure and instrumental. His bio is noteworthy to the general public, mostly Tanzanians, who might want to historical leadership information of TANESCO. I will like to know what can be improved before article is deleted.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Paulmosha (talk • contribs)
Carl Potts photo discussion
Hi. Thanks for participating in the photo discussion. I really appreciate it. One thing: A new photo has been uploaded and added to the discussion. I hope I'm not bothering you by asking if you would mind indicating whether this changes your viewpoint, or whether it remains unchanged? Thank you very much.

You obviously understand the sysyem much better than us. We are merely trying to make sure that the information included is accurate which it was not - I am Corporate Affairs head of owners Merlin Entertainments. We are struggling given so much is not right on our sites - even the corporate logo and we cannot see how to change it - any advice gratefully received! Not even sure this response is right! Thanks in advance(22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:57, 21 January 2015 (UTC))
Sorry I know I have a'conflict of interest' in your terms re changes to Legoland/Merlin changes - but all I am trying to do is make sure the facts/figures are correct which they are not. I am Public Affairs Chief for Merlin and happy to declare this but no idea from any of this how I do thisa - sorry — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:52, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
- OK first they are not "your sites", they are articles on Wikipedia about the company that you happen to work for. As such they are not extensions of your branding, marketing and advertising activities and should not be used as such. The appropriate way to deal with the edits that you think should be made for accuracy is to request them on the talk/discussion pages of the articles, providing sources that meet the requirements of WP:RS. To declare your COI, you should edit your user page and leave a notice there about it. Your user page is at: User:The firm comms. There is also the point about your user name - it is in breach of our user name policy because it represents a company or organisation. User names are personal to a single individual, must not represent, or appear to represent a company, group etc and must not be shared. --ukexpat (talk) 17:28, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!
If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 03:28, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
