- Delete. I sense that he is "emerging". When he has demonstrably emerged, and has some books, exhibitions and so on to his name, he may qualify for an article. Till then, alas no. -- Hoary (talk) 05:29, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

WP:SINGLEEVENT. Became notorious 11 years ago for a while after she lied about her making photos while biking Chernobyl. After than she created zero, zilch notable. We don't need monuments to liars in wikipedia, unless they made long-lasting impact on civilization. Staszek Lem (talk) 23:21, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
- Merge and redirect' WP:SINGLEEVENT, as far as I can tell, only discusses whether to merge individuals with notable ebents. In this case, the event itself (her hoax trip) is not notable. Which takes us back to generic WP:BIO. Which is borderline - few RS, focusing primary on her trip, not her person. Which leads me to conclude that she is not notable. Her hoax trip may deserve a mention on some list of hoaxes, and/or in the Chernobyl#In popular culture, where I recommend a one-two sentence summary with best refs is merged and redirected to. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 16:11, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
- Well, WP:SINGLEEVENT addresses "whether an article should be written about the individual, the event or both". In our case Chernobyl is not the event in question. And the hoax is just as forgotten ad Elena is. I.e., I don't see valid redirect target per WP:UNDUE. Staszek Lem (talk) 21:02, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

- Delete per nominator. No real notability. If the WP:SINGLEEVENT she was involved in had any real impact or importance, she'd atleast have an article on ru.wiki or uk.wiki. We're giving WP:UNDUE weight to this flash in the pan hoax and its perpetrator. Rosario Berganza 05:49, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
- Merge and redirect as per User:Piotrus. There is nothing notable about this person , but when a hoax makes news worldwide, it is useful to have a one-sentence summary, in this case, at Chernobyl#In popular culture.E.M.Gregory (talk) 20:59, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Delete(revised; see below) per WP:BLP1E. I don't think WP:SINGLEEVENT is the right guideline here - neither the person nor the event are notable. There seems to be only one source that is actually about her hoax motorcycle trip. Ivanvector (talk) 02:49, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
- Merge and redirect There are a few reliable sources that mention her after the one event. However, it's all about the hoax, and after weighing it, it probably doesn't constitute significant coverage. Nwlaw63 (talk) 14:52, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
- Merge and redirect to where? There is no "popular culture" section at Chernobyl nor at Chernobyl disaster nor Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, nor should there be per WP:TRIVIA or WP:POPCULTURE, however there is Cultural impact of the Chernobyl disaster with a list of pop culture references, and Chernobyl Exclusion Zone has a "people in the zone" section. Perhaps merge and redirect to Chernobyl Exclusion Zone#Access and tourism where a very brief mention of the hoax could be appropriate. Ivanvector (talk) 15:40, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
- Delete Internet notoriety ten years ago does not make someone notable today. Relentlessly (talk) 22:13, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Women in photography
In connection with Women's History Month 2013, we are trying to develop coverage of Women in photography, just as we covered Women in architecture last year. There is already a basic list which we need to expand but we also need to write an article on the topic — I could make a start myself in a week or two if there are no other volunteers. Furthermore, I am sure we will discover lots of additional names, organisations, etc., which will require articles. We should try to get started quickly as March is Women's History Month. Anyone interested in participating? --Ipigott (talk) 10:59, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
- I'm in. I'll need to research the topic for a few days. Bms4880 (talk) 22:21, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
- I've added Fay Godwin to the list as she was an important British landscape photographer, also started a stub article on Australian photographer Polixeni Papapetrou whose importance can be judged from at least a dozen solo exhibitions and being in 30 permanent collections (see her website for many examples of her work). Samatarou (talk) 05:17, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
- I'm happy to help (and have already added names to the list), but unfortunately my time will be limited. -- Hoary (talk) 00:59, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks. User Sionk was the one who came up with the idea of sorting by country in his List of female architects. I rather like it and it seems to work. It would also be a useful basis for developing separate lists of photographers by country. A sortable list is difficult to set up and may not be easy to manipulate by those who are not familiar with the markup, etc. But let's wait to see if there are other reactions.--Ipigott (talk) 16:33, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
I went ahead and reorganized by country. I kept the key for now. If the photographer had more than one country, I went with the best choice based on the article, and I used country of origin when in doubt. Bms4880 (talk) 18:23, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
image:Lemuel Cook.jpeg has been nominated for deletion. This is a photo of one of only 7 veterans of the American War of Independence to have been photographed. -- 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:45, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
In light of the increase in GLAM projects internationally, I'd like to start a new WikiProject, WP:Exhibitions to help coordinate activities around major museum and gallery exhibitions. If you are interested in the project, please contact me here or on my talk page. I'm hoping to establish guidelines for creating, editing, and tagging articles on major exhibitions and to begin improving articles in this area of Wikipedia.

- Good idea! I just added one and was wondering the same thing. Jane (talk) 09:15, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet for Wikiproject History of Photography at Wikimania 2014
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
The deadline for submissions is 1st July 2014
For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

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)
Australian photographers class project
Hi there! I'm a teacher at a photography college in Melbourne, Australia. Next year I am setting a Wikipedia research and writing assignment for my students which will hopefully improve the number of articles currently available on Australian photographers. If anyone would like to offer advice or help that would be great. I will publish the list of photographers we hope to cover soon. Louibu (talk) 01:22, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
WikiProject X is live!
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.

Copied from my talk page:
- Hi, I have been reading some of the Nikon articles. I noticed that you contributed significantly to Nikon F90 This article and others seem to give a different evolutionary lineage than is implied by the common chart posted at most of the articles. I collect Nikons and have many of these cameras. I'm trying to figure out the evolution of the 35mm AF series, especially the upper end cameras and fill-in the cameras missing from my collection. Here are a few of my nicer AFs:  The main collection is at  BTW, these are available for free use on WP, and I'm happy to provide a release. I'm not writing much at WP but fully support the project as I can.
- Is there a group who is coordinating then Nikon articles at all? Best regards, Kevin --Kevin Murray (talk) 00:06, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
