Starship Troopers' FAR
I have nominated Starship Troopers for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. GamerPro64 19:21, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
Under the Dome (TV series)
- I expect it's because it's a current TV show, rather than a non-notable past one, so whoever rated it as MID intended to make sure that information is kept up-to-date as possible. — Richard BB 07:55, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Can someone upgrade the article for Bill Fawcett (writer)?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Bill_Fawcett_%28writer%29 I previously spent a morning searching for bits of information about Bill Fawcett, and I have included all of that (with links) on the talk page for that article (which is currently a bare stub.) I know nothing about editing Wikipedia, and I am in no way connected to him.
As a reader of science fiction, I have seen his name pop up many times over the years, he is (was?) married to Jody Lynn Nye, he encouraged Robert Asprin to continue a series or take it in a new direction (or so one of the Author's Notes by Jody Lynn Nye indicated in one of the Myth-Adventures books,) he has edited many anthologies such as The Fleet series with David Drake, and his company is a book packager (I'm unsure of what that entails) that has handled over 350 books, many of which are well known books and authors in the genre. He is also a co-founder of Mayfair Games, I believe.
I came to Wikipedia one day to see what books he had edited (such as The Fleet) and I was surprised to see a red link. I looked at it and saw that it had been deleted several years ago for copyright infringement (however that would happen with a biography and bibliography.) I posted on the Requested Articles page, and I was grateful to see that the article has been added again, although it doesn't have much information at the moment.220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:54, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

edit-a-thon at UC Riverside
FYI: The UCR Libraries are hosting three edit-a-thons focusing on their great special collections (science fiction, water resources, the Inland Empire and more) on Oct. 12, 2013, Oct. 26, 2013, and Nov. 23, 2013.
This is relevant to the SF WikiProject because UCR Libraries host the Eaton Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy: http://eaton.ucr.edu/ -- "the largest publicly-accessible collection of science fiction, fantasy, horror and utopian literature in the world." This is a great opportunity to take advantage of these collections!
If you're in southern California please participate if you can; or remote participation is fine -- and you can leave questions for the librarians on the talk page -- they are excited to share the collection :) Details here. -- phoebe / (talk to me) 22:56, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
- Also if participants in this project have ideas for articles that attendees could edit, please add those suggestions here -- phoebe / (talk to me) 23:00, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Hi, I am French and I am sorry to see that there is no item about the Poul Anderson's book : Time Patrol.
Portal:Star Trek for peer review
We'd appreciate helpful feedback, at Wikipedia:Portal peer review/Star Trek/archive1.
Thank you for your time,
The usage of fighting-machine is under discussion, see talk:Tripod (The War of the Worlds). "fighting machine" is currently used for a real world military topic. "Tripod" is a science fiction topic. -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:06, 30 November 2013 (UTC)and
The usage of flying machine is under discussion, see talk:flying-machine. "flying machine" is currently used for a real world aeronautical topic. "Flying-machine" is a science fiction topic. -- 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:16, 30 November 2013 (UTC)and
