Another useful source?[edit]

At SFARI, Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative, an interesting post, 15 August 2014, "Guest blog: London as a crucible for autism in the 1950s" by Uta Frith: [1] with 4 references.

A historical look at the transition from "schizophrenic, psychotic, brain-damaged, epileptic, mentally defective" to autism.

I've added it to External links on her article. --Hordaland (talk) 20:20, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Unusual file deletion discussion[edit]

A unique image file deletion discussion is currently being conducted at this page, which may be of interest to members of this WikiProject, and others with an interest in disabilities. (In particular, please see 2nd paragraph) CaesarsPalaceDude (talk) 17:44, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Created pages[edit]

I created Wikipedia:WikiProject Autism/Collaboration (Project sub-page for collaboration on articles) and Wikipedia:WikiProject Autism/Peer review (Project sub-page for peer review of articles). If anyone wants to be an Active Peer reviewer please let me know on my talk page. Thanks.Maranjosie (talk) 17:40, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
