Greetings from GLAM-Wiki US[edit]

Invitation to join GLAM-Wiki US

Hello! This WikiProject aligns closely with the work of the GLAM-Wiki initiative (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums), a global community of volunteers who assist cultural institutions with sharing resources with Wikimedia. GLAM-Wiki US is a new community initiative focused on organizing cultural collaborations within the United States. GLAM organizations are diverse and span numerous topics, from libraries and art museums to science centers and historic sites. We currently have a backlog of interested institutions- and we need your help!

We hope you'll join the growing GLAM-Wiki community in the US. Thank you!
-Lori Phillips (Talk), US Cultural Partnerships Coordinator

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

Are there any Colorado residents interested in participating in Wiki Loves Pride 2014, a multi-national effort to improve coverage of LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects? Perhaps an edit-a-thon or a photography project? Please visit the project page for details or let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! --Another Believer (Talk) 17:38, 13 May 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)

Marijuana vending machine[edit]

We really need a photo. Surely there must be some of these machines about. Please, someone who knows where one is, if you remember your camera, and have the energy and motivation, take a photo for the article. Many thanks. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 11:37, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Colorado only allows cannabis to be sold in licensed stores with strict security. A licensed store may have a vending machine, but it would only be a novelty. Yours aye,  Buaidh  18:34, 7 January 2015 (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.

Pikeview, Colorado[edit]


I've been working on expanding the Pikeview, Colorado article, but I'm a bit confused. The original town of Pikeview was a mining town and railroad station stop near the present Mark Dahbling and Rockrimmon intersection, just of Interstate 25.

There is also Pikeview reservoir off Austin Bluffs/Garden of the Gods Road, Mark Dahbling, and Interstate 25 (i.e., 1.5 miles south of Pikeview). Then there is Pikeview Quarry Road to a quarry that is 5.6 miles west of Pikeview off of Vindicator.

There are also two other quarries nearby - on either side of Queens Canyon - one south and entered near Manitou Springs and the other off of 30th Street, which I think I've also seen called Pikeview Quarry. I've plotted these on google maps and am just trying to sort out whether Pikeview Reservoir and Pikeview Quarry should be in the Pikeview article. I am guessing that Pikeview Reservoir should be in the article, but I don't know about Pikeview Quarry.

Any insight would be really helpful! I've posted this on the article talk page so that the history is there. Thanks!--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:26, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
