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.

Proposal for a 200-WikiProject contest[edit]

A proposal has been posted for a contest between all 200 country WikiProjects. We're looking for judges, coordinators, ideas, and feedback.

We recently had an article listed on Wikipedia:Pages needing translation into English on a certain Ady Jean-Gardy, as the article was in French. Having done some translation and editing on it, we're not entirely sure on the notability of this person. His cornerstone projects (according to the bio) such as the Fédération de la Presse Africaine and the Fédération de la Presse Haïtienne throw up virtually zero google hits. I was wondering if someone with better knowledge of Haitian topic could have a look and maybe give us some input? Thanks. Akerbeltz (talk) 14:20, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Haiti/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Haiti/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:52, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Haiti articles have been selected for the Wikipedia 0.8 release[edit]

Version 0.8 is a collection of Wikipedia articles selected by the Wikipedia 1.0 team for offline release on USB key, DVD and mobile phone. Articles were selected based on their assessed importance and quality, then article versions (revisionIDs) were chosen for trustworthiness (freedom from vandalism) using an adaptation of the WikiTrust algorithm.

We would like to ask you to review the Haiti articles and revisionIDs we have chosen. Selected articles are marked with a diamond symbol (♦) to the right of each article, and this symbol links to the selected version of each article. If you believe we have included or excluded articles inappropriately, please contact us at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8 with the details. You may wish to look at your WikiProject's articles with cleanup tags and try to improve any that need work; if you do, please give us the new revisionID at Wikipedia talk:Version 0.8. We would like to complete this consultation period by midnight UTC on Monday, October 11th.

We have greatly streamlined the process since the Version 0.7 release, so we aim to have the collection ready for distribution by the end of October, 2010. As a result, we are planning to distribute the collection much more widely, while continuing to work with groups such as One Laptop per Child and Wikipedia for Schools to extend the reach of Wikipedia worldwide. Please help us, with your WikiProject's feedback!

WikiProject cleanup listing[edit]

I have created together with Smallman12q a toolserver tool that shows a weekly-updated list of cleanup categories for WikiProjects, that can be used as a replacement for WolterBot and this WikiProject is among those that are already included (because it is a member of Category:WolterBot cleanup listing subscriptions). See the tool's wiki page, this project's listing in one big table or by categories and the index of WikiProjects. Svick (talk) 20:58, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

WikiWomen's History Month[edit]

Hi everyone. March is Women's History Month and I'm hoping a few folks here at WP:Haiti will have interest in putting on events (on and off wiki) related to women's roles in Haiti's history, society and culture. We've created an event page on English Wikipedia (please translate!) and I hope you'll find the inspiration to participate. These events can take place off wiki, like edit-a-thons, or on wiki, such as themes and translations. Please visit the page here: WikiWomen's History Month. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to seeing events take place! SarahStierch (talk) 23:25, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Merger proposal : Olmeus Charles and Charles Olemus[edit]

I propose to merge Olmeus Charles and Charles Olemus because it seemed that it is the same person. In fact the real name should be Charles Olmeus (first name Charles and second name Olmeus), but I am not so sure, and I have not found sources which will garanty this. The discussion is here Talk:Olmeus Charles.--Berdea (talk) 10:51, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Article needed on diplomatic crisis between the Dominican Republic and Haiti in 2013[edit]

On the Spanish Wikipedia, I discovered: es:Crisis diplomática entre República Dominicana y Haití de 2013. I realized there is no English article. Is anyone interested in starting it? WhisperToMe (talk) 01:30, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

New Article: Structural Violence in Haiti[edit]

Hello! I am a student at Rice University and am currently a member of a class on Poverty, Gender, and Human Capabilities. One of our assignments is to produce a Wikipedia contribution. I am currently working on a contribution regarding structural violence in Haiti and I just want to share a bit more on my planned contribution and to receive any comments and advice that you might have.

I will be creating a new entry on structural violence in Haiti and would just like to share a bit on the outline that I have. For my article, I will begin with a definition of “Structural Violence” and its relevance in Haiti. I will then elaborate on how different axes of oppression, specifically gender, race (ethnicity), and socioeconomic status, negatively influence the level of structural marginalization. I will then move on to cover some of the major impacts of Structural Violence. Currently, I have identified four major impacts: Poverty, Education, Access to Healthcare, and Health Outcomes. Immediately following impacts, I will cover the factors that have resulted in Structural Violence in Haiti. Following a description of the causes, I will then discuss some of the measures that are currently being taken to address Structural Violence.

I believe that my entry will be a useful contribution to the Wikipedia community because it sheds light on the reality that multi-level structural barriers exist within societies that prevent the underprivileged from receiving the same amenities that the more privileged do. Instead of simply attributing a lack of basic human rights/needs to poverty or poor infrastructure, my article will demonstrate that disparity is a result of a multitude of factors ingrained within society—including culture, political entities, racism, and sexism, all of which converge to form a barrier to a select few.

To craft my article, I plan on drawing upon a multitude of works, mostly from the fields of Anthropology, Sociology, and Medical Anthropology. Someone in particular who has done much work on structural violence in Haiti is Dr. Paul Farmer. I will be heavily referencing his works, but wonder if you might have any other advice on sources to pursue, particularly those that are written by Haitians themselves? I want to be cautious of over referencing Dr. Farmer’s works, as well as relying on sources where structural violence is not the primary focus. Do you know of any sources or works that I should consider pursuing?

Additionally, because this is a project page specifically dedicated to Haiti, I would appreciate any feedback in regards to sources that I have overlooked that might reference social structure in Haiti, oppression in Haiti, discrimination in Haiti, as well as structural violence in Haiti. Additionally, I was also wondering if I might get feedback on the structure of my outline and if I am covering the appropriate things as they relate to Haiti?

Thanks in advance for any insight that you might give!
