Shimer photo permissions[edit]

Shimer seems willing to share some of their copyrighted photos in support of the project. I have my own wishlist, mainly from the Waukegan website archives and a couple of the Oxford viewbook photos. I can't post here, obviously, but will share privately if you like. If you have ideas for what you would like them to license here, let me know in the next few days and I will coordinate the permission letter. I think we are better off if we only ask once. Thanks. --Nasty Housecat (talk) 05:41, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Excellent! That's the kind of take-charge attitude we need. :-) In order of priority, I would say: class pics, theater pics, party/miscellaneous student life pics, and campus pics. (Campus last simply because we can, for the most part, still go back to the site and take pictures.)
There aren't a lot of specific pics I would suggest, but there is one classic overhead shot of what I think was the Fall '94 IS 5 class co-taught by Don and Eileen (identifiable around the table along with some students who graduated in '95), meeting in Infinity. I'm going to have a hell of a time finding it, but it was in several iterations of the catalog. If we could get a freely-licensed version of that shot, that would be exceedingly awesome. -- Visviva (talk) 06:00, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Here is the pic I was thinking of: [1]. I think I have seen cleaner versions. -- Visviva (talk) 07:03, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Actually, strike that -- priority #1 would be freely-licensed pics of Don Moon, Bill Rice and Ron Champagne, if possible. -- Visviva (talk) 06:27, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

BTW - Stupendous pic of Franny Shimer. Nice get! --Nasty Housecat (talk) 05:43, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I acquired another one also, which I will upload shortly though they're pretty similar. -- Visviva (talk) 06:00, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

I just uploaded nineteen new photos to Commons with permission from the school (OTRS is pending). Check them out. --Nasty Housecat (talk) 16:58, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Awesome! Pity about the resolution and the photoshopping, though... -- Visviva (talk) 17:59, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

SLA[edit]

Did you wrote this article  : Second language acquisition (2004/11/23's version)

I'm looking for :

  1. Nation's (2000) SLA review : "In a review of the substantial literature on this topic, Nation (2000) relates the value of negotiation to the generative use of words: the use of words in new contexts which stimulate a deeper understanding of their meaning." and "Nation (2000) reviews various studies which indicate that about 98% of the words in running text should be previously known in order for extensive reading to be effective." Are you talking about Nation, I.S.P. (2001). Learning vocabulary in another language. Oxford: Oxford University Press. ISBN 0-521-80498-1 ???
  2. Long's Interaction Hypothesis : who his Long ? which article ? (reference?)

I will myself focus on Vocabulary acquisition, and these two references may be helpful. Yug (talk) 00:01, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

I did, but it's been a while, and I'm a little hazy on the details. I think you are correct that "Nation (2000)" should be "Nation (2001)". Long is Michael H. Long. The interaction hypothesis was developed by Long in a series of papers in the 1980s; none of them seem to be freely available online, but you may find this overview by Rod Ellis helpful: [2]. Good luck! -- Visviva (talk) 05:36, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Ok for Long ! Good !
  • Nation (2000) VS Nation (2001): for this 2004/11/23's version you used just ONE paper from Nation as specified in the "References" section ? if so : yes, 2000 => 2001
(the text contain 2 times "Nation (2000)", 1 time "Nation (2001)", and 1 time " Nation, I.S.P. (2001). Learning vocabulary in another language. Oxford: Oxford University Press. ISBN 0-521-80498-1". Learning vocabulary in another language is from 2001, for sure.)
Sorry for insisting. Yug (talk) 12:46, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on May 11, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 11, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :D Thanks!

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Visviva,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Obar --Jaobar — Preceding unsigned comment added by 35.9.115.210 (talk) 21:36, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

File source problem with File:Silmido map.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Silmido map.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Pulaski (Gary)[edit]

I don't understand why you don't think this article is a stub. According to the Wikipedia:WikiProject United States/Assessment standards, the difference between a start-class and a stub-class is in the quality and quantity of the referencing. This article seems pretty well referenced for its length. And your removal of the stub tag from the article also begs the question why you didn't change the assessment on the talk page. Gtwfan52 (talk) 03:22, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Those guidelines seem to be profoundly out of step with the definition of a stub as "an article containing only one or a few sentences of text" (that is also shorter than it should be and capable of expansion). My understanding has been that this is the only reason to use a stub template. If there are serious issues with the referencing or organization of the article, then there are more specific templates for that.
So I guess there are two reasons:
1. I personally think that talk-page assessments in general are a gigantic waste of time that can be better spent doing actual editing, so updating the talk page didn't even cross my mind.
2. WPUS appears to have developed a definition of "stub" that does not correspond to the traditional Wikipedia definition at all, but serves only as a place to file articles of arbitrary length that don't yet meet the criteria for "start class." Thus the operative definitions of "stub" for the article and talk pages are -- it appears -- completely different. (But I didn't notice this until just now.)
BTW, since I was as puzzled by the tag's addition as you were by its removal, I started a discussion here, to see if the Wikipedia:Stub definition is still in keeping with editor practice. -- Visviva (talk) 03:38, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
You know, I had thought at one time that a stub class article was actually lower than a start class article. I can see why the projects use grading, as a means of prioritizing article improvement, but with different editors deciding the upper levels, it all seems kinda silly to me too. But giving gold stars is an age-old motivational tool, and it is hard to give a volunteer a raise, so I guess I get it from that viewpoint too. Not that I care for myself...I just write on the stuff I want to write on and do it for my own satisfaction. Thanks for your input. Gtwfan52 (talk) 04:58, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for October 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Isabella Garnett, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages MD and College of Physicians and Surgeons (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Proposed deletion of Index of Korea-related articles (All)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Index of Korea-related articles (All) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Redundant to the navigation category and two dozen other articles in it--growing to be impossibly long.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:12, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Korean index[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Korean index requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Speedy deletion nomination of Hwadae (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Hwadae (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.
