Leaflet For Wikiproject Greece 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

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

History of the Constellations: Capricorn?[edit]

In the "History of the Constellations" page, there is a reference to "Capricorn." I believe that should be "Capricornus."

Villa zografou deletion discussion[edit]

The article Villa zografou is proposed for deletion, and was relisted to reach consensus. I personally think it should be kept and improved, but admittedly it is not really a valuable article in its current state. --Delirium (talk) 10:10, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Language help with AfD review of basketball player[edit]

Hello - There is currently a deletion discussion underway for Michail Lountzis, a Greek basketball player who recently signed with Panathinaikos for the coming season. There do not seem to be many English-language sources for him, but I am conscious that a 16-year old player signing with Panathinaikos may be notable in Greece. Could someone review for Greek language reliable sources? I'd hate to see a valid article deleted unless he truly isn't notable. Thanks for any help you can give!

Aristedes Metallinos Help needed from Greek speakers[edit]

An editor has accepted the article I have written on the laic (lay) sculptor Aristedes Metallinos as Start-Class. I need to refine the article with more use of Greek references but my Greek is weak. It has been pointed out that Aristedes Metallinos (Gr: Αριστείδης Μεταλληνός) does not have an entry in Greek Βικιπαίδεια. Is there anyone who would consider helping me translate the current entry on English Wikipedia with a view to submitting an article that would be acceptable on Greek Wiki?

IP removing foreign names in lead sections[edit]

Γεια σας!

37.6.80.147 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) has removed a number of foreign or former names from Greek localities. As a reminder, there is no generic rule for these names, but WP:NCGN states that "relevant foreign language names (for instance, used by a group of people which used to inhabit this geographical place) are permitted [in the lead section]". Some of the removed names were present following a previous consensus (such as Kato Nevrokopi) but I don't have knowledge for all these specific locations. Anyway, eligible names should be restored. For this reason, your help is welcome! Place Clichy (talk) 09:15, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
