Hi! I just wanted to let you guys know I just originated the Teresa Pizarro de Angulo article. Fix it as you deem needed.

Thank you and God bless you! Sincerely yours, Antonio Martino Martin

Article alerts[edit]

This is a notice to let you know about Article alerts, a fully-automated subscription-based news delivery system designed to notify WikiProjects and Taskforces when articles are entering Articles for deletion, Requests for comment, Peer review and other workflows (full list). The reports are updated on a daily basis, and provide brief summaries of what happened, with relevant links to discussion or results when possible. A certain degree of customization is available; WikiProjects and Taskforces can choose which workflows to include, have individual reports generated for each workflow, have deletion discussion transcluded on the reports, and so on. An example of a customized report can be found here.

If you are already subscribed to Article Alerts, it is now easier to report bugs and request new features. We are also in the process of implementing a "news system", which would let projects know about ongoing discussions on a wikipedia-wide level, and other things of interest. The developers also note that some subscribing WikiProjects and Taskforces use the display=none parameter, but forget to give a link to their alert page. Your alert page should be located at "Wikipedia:PROJECT-OR-TASKFORCE-HOMEPAGE/Article alerts". Questions and feedback should be left at Wikipedia talk:Article alerts.

Message sent by User:Addbot to all active wiki projects per request, Comments on the message and bot are welcome here.

Architecture of Colombia[edit]

Hi, I've just updated the article on Architecture of Colombia, writing a brief introduction on the subject. I also deleted things which I thing to be innacurate, especially the paragraph dealing with the nineteenth century, and tried to lay out the main topics, which are to be found in any serious publication on the matter. Unfortunately, I do not live in Colombia at the moment and thus do not have bibliography in order to properly enhance the article. Any of you guys out there who might want to help expanding it, I strongly suggest you to have a look at the work of architect and historian Germán Tellez.

Piqueteadero[edit]

Could I have some help with this subject please? I am not clear on the word's etymology. Does it mean picnic or "pinch"? Thanks. Candleabracadabra (talk) 01:34, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

This is not a word, this should not be in wikipedia, this should be deleted as it is not in widespread usage, not if any significant value or purpose. -eadero is a Spanish noun/verb-forming suffix, similar to -ery in English, like tannery. But just like in English, just because you add the suffix to a word doesn't automatically make it a valid word. piquet- apparently comes from the word piquete, which means picnic, whether it derives its root from the English word is less certain as most dictionaries don't even include it. Now, I am from Colombia, and this word is most definitely not in the common usage, and at most is a regionalism. From the sound of it, and the current description in the article, it just seems like an appropriated word akin to the word eatery in English to describe an informal place where one gets informal and bite size forms of food. I will be moving to place this article up for deletion though as it does not meet the criteria for inclusion as Wikipedia:Wikipedia is not a dictionary. mijotoba (talk) 16:27, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
