I am reading Donna Tartt's The Secret History and found myself researching the term telestic. In the book, the terms refers to a telestic trance associated with Dionysian rituals, but I found multiple references to telestic music, poetry, and perhaps a modern movement. All are vague and give no satisfying definition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rose Parsons (talkcontribs) 18:40, 26 July 2014 (UTC)


I think an article on the Gotenna would now be appropriate. Although it's a not yet released product it is very cool and now has several independent articles written on it from sites such as Gizmodo who have actually used and tested pre release versions of it (pertinent because they are not only recycling information from the manufacturers website). With all the recent coverage I'm sure people will be looking to find info on it and Wikipedia is the right place as it is able to gather and condense accurate info from several sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 115.64.190.234 (talk) 14:12, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Articles about extinct dog breeds, Guejae Gae"/"Gaulchae Gae" and Hütespitz.(Every Spitz-breed article links to those purged pages, articles exist in non-English wikis.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.76.45.35 (talk) 21:45, 6 July 2014 (UTC)


An English translation of the Aoba Festival (青葉祭り in Japanese) would be a good article to have. It could be linked to already existing articles about Sendai, Miyagi and Suzume Odori amongst others.

Aluminum Sesquichlorohydrate, should have a definition, with more information, and be added to appropriate wiki sites. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.137.113.45 (talk) 14:03, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

I would like to see a page made about Noah Brocklebank & Letters For Noah. Noah Brocklebank is a teenage boy, born on February 8th, 2000, who lives in Columbia, Maryland. Around January 26, 2013, he posted on social media that he was going to commit suicide on his birthday. A few days later, he was hospitalized for suicide threats and cutting. His mother decided to create a support page for Noah, asking friends to send him letters of encouragement. The page grew rapidly, leading to thousands of supporters and letters coming in to Noah. Eventually, his story got picked up by the news, and he was a headliner on the Baltimore Sun newspaper. He even got to meet his favorite hockey team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and got to be on Steve Harvey's talk show! I ask that you research Noah's life, and write about him and what has happened to him. I am a big supporter of their web page, and ask that you spread the story of Letters for Noah. Thank you in advance. A few links for starters: Letters for Noah: lettersfornoah.com Letters for Noah's Facebook page: Facebook.com/lettersfornoah — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brocklefrog (talkcontribs) 22:46, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

TechInAsia[edit]

Hello! Would really appreciate help in creating a page for TechInAsia.com (http://www.techinasia.com/). It is a blog/site very similar to The Next Web (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheNextWeb).

TechInAsia has been mentioned/reference on a number of Wikipedia articles, such as:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_virtual_communities_with_more_than_100_million_active_users http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xiaomi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WeChat

Just to name a few.

TechInAsia's about page is a good place to start to know more (http://www.techinasia.com/about-us/)


Men in Shakespeare's works[edit]

Anime Kida[edit]

I would like to know if any of you would be interested in writing an article for wikipedia on Anime Kida, world's first anime social network, I would write it myself but I have a conflict of interest as I am too close to the topic to be objective. I can provide any info you might need upon request. The community is four years old and very active, the purpose of the site is purely for anime fans to get to know one another, connect and collaborate on all sort of weird/awesome projects, see, not too objective. Please consider this article our site is http://animekida.com --Fblan001 (talk · contribs)

unported license[edit]

13 million Google hits for this expression. An example of usage of this expression in photo caption here http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/tetrapod-zoology/2013/11/05/coelophysoid-theropods-101/ . This expression seems to usually refer to a Creative Commons license, but I don't know whether it can correctly be used for other licenses as well. Here seems to be discussing "generic" usage - http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/cc-licenses/2007-March/005310.html

This expression apparently is not currently defined anywhere on Wikipedia.

We could add a definition of this term to an existing article and make unported license redirect to it, but I think that this expression should be defined somewhere on Wikipedia.

Old Military Road[edit]

(referring to a stretch of road between Dubuque, IA to Iowa City, IA)

The Old Military Road has been spoken of in many Wiki articles, and there are many good references regarding the topic, but no article yet exists for it. This may be a future project for me, but I don't think I will have the time.

A Google search will show many good references regarding the topic: https://www.google.com/search?q=old+military+road+dubuque+iowa+city&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Mekong River International Schools Association (MRISA)[edit]

  • Mekong River International Schools Association (MRISA)

I'm not sure if this the correct place to put this, please move if wrong-This association is similar to APAC 1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Pacific_Activities_Conference and needs its own page on Wikipedia.

Formed in 1998, this association currently consists of eight member schools. 2. http://www.unishanoi.org/page.cfm?p=570

The following schools are members and each has a website in which they mention MRISA Hanoi International School - Vietnam International School of Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam Saigon South International School - Vietnam International School of Phnom Penh - Cambodia Northbridge International School of Cambodia - Cambodia United Nations International School of Hanoi - Vietnam Vientiane International School - Laos International School Eastern Seaboard - Thailand

MRISA host many sporting and cultural events.

Senior football/soccer March 2012 ishcmc March 2013 UNIS April 2014 Vientiane international school VIS http://mrisasoccer14.weebly.com

There is obviously a lot more to go in this page as there are junior and senior competitions in soccer, volleyball, basketball, as well as a cultural exchange, model United Nations, and a leadership weekend. More information should be available from the principle of the school which chairs MRISA, currently that is HIS) Cliffordinvietnam (talk) 14:56, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Missing 411[edit]

I haven't read the book but I recently read about and heard a youtube video of a radio broadcast (on coast to coast) about Missing 411 based on books called

Missing 411-Western United States & Canada: Unexplained Disappearances of North Americans that have never been solved

and

Missing 411- Eastern United States: Unexplained disappearances of North Americans that have never been solved

by David Paulides

It supposedly covers some very interesting missing persons cases that allegedly follow some consistent and very strange patterns. While I know very little about this I searched for Wikipedia because I figure it might have some decent criticism and an objective look on the subject and either Wikipedia doesn't mention the subject or I can't find it by searching for Missing 411. I figure it's worth at least mentioning the book and what it has to say and perhaps giving people the opportunity to at least list some potential criticisms as well and discuss the alleged controversy. Some information about David Paulides and his background should be in order as well. He makes claims about his own background but are they all true? Is he leaving anything out that people should know about? I'm not saying the book is wrong (or right) in what it claims just that an objective mention is worth it. Is the author just trying to sell books and they are presenting mundane facts as if they are much more unusual than they really are while cherry picking the facts or is there something really going on here?

The World Health Organization Quality of Life (Redirect: WHOQOL)[edit]

I haven't edited the English Wikipedia much, so I didn't know where to put this. Please move to correct location.

Falling Rain Genomics[edit]

There used to be an article about this company/website (http://www.fallingrain.com) but it was deleted several years ago (Discussion here). I can see why it was deleted; information about it is hard to come by and it's considered not reliable. However, it's used as a reference by more than 5,000 Wikipedia articles, so we really ought to have an article on it if only so we can say it's not a reliable source (and perhaps we should initiate a project to replace all our references to it and prevent any new ones being added).

Child Hyperthermia in Automobiles[edit]

Aside from a one- or two-sentence blurb in Automobile safety, the important, and all-too-common issue of children who die of hyperthermia (heat stroke) when left in cars doesn't have a real article. Not sure what it should be called, or how to categorize it (is it a health/medical topic, child safety topic, vehicle safety topic, or societal topic?). This Pulitzer Prize-winning article on the subject is a great resource. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/fatal-distraction-forgetting-a-child-in-thebackseat-of-a-car-is-a-horrifying-mistake-is-it-a-crime/2014/06/16/8ae0fe3a-f580-11e3-a3a5-42be35962a52_story.html
