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)

Upcoming event at the WWI Museum in Kansas City[edit]

Hello all! I wanted to invite everyone to a Wikipedia editathon about WWI and Dissent on November 22 at the National World War I Museum in Kansas City. Join us for the U.S. branch of this international event as we write more social history from the era around WWI into Wikipedia! All editors are welcome, contributors to topics around WWI other than Dissent also encouraged! Food and drinks will be supplied by the WWI museum, Sadads (talk) 21:38, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Olive Ann Beech[edit]

Could I get someone on the Project to look at the article Olive Ann Beech and assess it for something besides a stub article? I have added extensive copy and it is referenced. Thank you. Cuprum17 (talk) 00:06, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

I bumped existing projects ones up to "Start", since it's obviously at least a "Start" rating, but I didn't move it up higher since I'm not a member of those other projects. I created one for Kansas then ranked it "C", because I feel that any article that ranks "B" or higher should be validated by multiple people before getting such a rank, though I don't know official policy. • SbmeirowTalk • 02:40, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't think anyone has an issue with anyone bumping up a longer article from "Stub" to "Start" without asking. A "Stub" is typically something that is too short and contains almost no text, so anything longer is obviously not a stub, thus automatically deserves no less than "Start", even if you are the one that added most of the text. • SbmeirowTalk • 02:44, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
We made a guide at Wikipedia:WikiProject College football/Assessment for college football articles. you may find it helpful.--Paul McDonald (talk) 15:41, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

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.

New article Kansas Navy[edit]

As discussed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Kansas/Archive_4#Kansas_Navy.3F, I've created a stub article for this apparently tongue-in-cheek fraternal organization. MatthewVanitas (talk) 08:46, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
