Nomination of Ekin Tunçay Turan for deletion
The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ekin Tunçay Turan until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.
Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article.
Need help on Ian Charleson Awards
These are very highly regarded, very prestigious theatre awards in the UK; however there is little publicity and no glitz (serious actors/theatre-goers actually prefer it that way and feel it adds to their greater legitimacy). Because of the low publicity, there is less information easily available about the awards as a whole (e.g., no official website). Also, the Sunday Times, which sponsors the awards, is behind a paywall. For all of these reasons, the Wikipedia article on the Ian Charleson Awards is greatly lacking -- much information is missing, and most of what is there is uncited. If anyone would like to help out with expanding the article, please help! Even just the basic information for many years is incomplete or missing. Any additions to the article would be greatly appreciated! It would also help if you have a subscription to The Times (I don't, currently), but it's not necessary because the award information is out there on the web in other more scattered places. I also just spent many hours cleaning up the format of the article, which was a mess. I'm not 100% convinced that the format I came up with is the best one, so other opinions on that are welcome, too. Also, if there is anywhere else I should post this help request, please let me know (I've posted it in the Wikiproject Awards). Thank you very much! Softlavender (talk) 02:42, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
- Belated followup: I managed to get a one-month subscription to The Times, and a three-day subscription to The Times' digital archive, and printed out all of the twice-yearly Sunday Times articles on these awards, and updated and corrected and expanded the Wikipedia article accordingly. No further help needed. Softlavender (talk) 04:53, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Leaflet For Wikiproject Theatre At Wikimania 2014 (updated version)
Please note: This is an updated version of a previous post that I made.
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:

An editor, possibly associated with the subject, has updated the Peter Nichols page in good faith, but with several guideline problems - not the original didn't have issues. I wonder if some of you here can help improve the page to everyone's satisfaction. --John (User:Jwy/talk) 16:29, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Commons uploads of interest from National Library of Scotland
Just wanted to flag up some content that was uploaded to Commons recently from the National Library of Scotland that might be of interest to this project. About 200 images from the Library's Weir Collection of late 19th century theatre posters, playbills, photographs have now been uploaded. You can find them at Commons:Category:Weir Collection.
Hope this proves interesting or useful!
