At Puerto Rico, there is an RfC Can the existence of the PR status controversy be admitted to the article? The DRN put forward by another editor was closed due to no volunteer. An RfC was recommended there. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 17:06, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Caribbean At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

Mistake[edit]

In 1803, ships carrying Haitian refugees trying to escape the turmoil of the Revolution arrived on the Cuban shores. Though all the passengers onboard had been legally free in Haiti for years, upon their arrival they were considered slaves. The white people on the ship were allowed passage into Cuba, but those that were black or mulato were not – being held, at José Martí’s suggestion, on the ship in the harbor as a type of floating prison.

This is from the "Slavery in Cuba" entry. This must be an error, since José Marti was not even born in 1803. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.111.107.77 (talk) 16:09, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

  • What is the complete bibliography of this source? It is obviously wrong. Where is it used in Wikipedia? Historian (talk) 14:24, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
