Is this something which WikiProject Sociology should do? I'm not attending, but perhaps other sociologists would be attending and would pick-up a leaflet? Meclee (talk) 18:32, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Gender roles in Afghanistan needs rewrite[edit]

The page recently survived an AFD, which served to highlight the flaws in the current version of the article: it's made up of a single public domain text and reads like an essay. I'm bringing this to the attention of the Afghanistan, Sociology, Gender studies, and Feminism Wikiprojects in order that the article can be improved by having more editors work on it.-- Brainy J ~~ (talk) 13:48, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Temporary WikiProject Watchlist[edit]

You may have noticed that when the old Toolserver was shutdown 7/1 to make way for the new WMFLabs, a lot of former tools disappeared, including the old Wikiproject Watchlist tool formerly maintained by user Dispenser. Thanks to Paul_012 (talk), we now have a temporary replacement until such time as Dispenser or another user develops a similar tool for the new lab. Here's a link if you need it: Regards, Meclee (talk) 18:40, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

ASA's Wikipedia's initiative[edit]

I've found the list of ASA's Wikipedia's initiative members (at [1], page requires log in), with their Wikipedia usernames. I'll list them here, which should WP:ECHO them - they may want to introduce themselves here, and talk about their activity and plans.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:14, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

I think the list probably covers several years, so some of these may not be active. I was actually already editing wikipedia when I signed the list trying to find others interested in editing sociology articles. I am still editing wikipedia, but stopped paying ASA dues a couple of years ago. Meclee (talk) 16:35, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Most of those are inactive, but considering that the ASA initiative was a failure and the APS one was quite successful, I actually think that pursuing this and contacting participants may be very worthwhile in understanding why one similar project succeeds while another fails. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 17:15, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
It would be useful to find who's active. Let me know how I can help. Meclee (talk) 17:28, 7 July 2014 (UTC)


FYI, the scope and purpose of the anarchy article is under discussion, see talk:anarchy where it is proposed to be merged to stateless society -- (talk) 06:25, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
