Comment on the WikiProject X proposal
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)
No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel
I've started a new article on the book by Janice Dickinson — No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel.
Feel free to help out with additional secondary sources, and/or chip in with collaborative discussion at Talk:No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel.
- Hmm, looks possibly notable to me. Vogue (at least on their website) covered the closing of her last venture, which suggests notability to me. Most of the press seems specific to Atelier Meyer rather than Haid herself. Don't feel strongly one way or the other though. Calliopejen1 (talk) 21:25, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
- Also, her opening & relaunch was covered by Women's Wear Daily. A bit more background via brief excerpt from the December 29, 2009 WWD article: "Meanwhile, last January, Carmen Haid, a former communications director for Tommy Hilfiger in the U.K., and fashion journalist Alice Kodell launched the vintage clothing Web site Atelier-Mayer.com. The store takes a similarly historical approach to vintage clothing. It was inspired by Haid’s great aunt, the late haute couture dressmaker Klaudia Mayer, who founded the original Atelier Mayer in 1927. Haid believes the launch comes at an opportune moment, as consumers are questioning the value of fast fashion." Fashionethics (talk) 09:12, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
Vogue Cover templates
Five years ago templates for the Vogue cover content now logged at List of Vogue cover models were TFDed at Wikipedia:Templates_for_deletion/Log/2009_August_14#Template:1970-1979VogueCovers. Now, that the research has been done to fill in the templates, do we want to restore them?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 04:20, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
- TonyTheTiger I am having trouble imagining what these templates are and how they work based on List of Vogue cover models. Is the information in these templates backed with a citation anywhere? Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:32, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
