Using references[edit]

Hi, I gave the Wikipedia editing demo for your class. I noticed that you have linked PDFs in your references, make sure that these pdfs are in the public domain or that you have linked to the journal page to the article that they brings someone not at an institution to a paywall. you are not allowed to link actual pdfs in Wikipedia pages. Thanks for fixing this!

Impact of recent student edits[edit]

This article has recently been edited by students as part of their course work for a university course. As part of the quality metrics for the education program, we would like to determine what level of burden is placed on Wikipedia's editors by student coursework.

If you are an editor of this article who spent time correcting edits to it made by the students, please tell us how much time you spent on cleaning up the article. Please note that we are asking you to estimate only the negative effects of the students' work. If the students added good material but you spent time formatting it or making it conform to the manual of style, or copyediting it, then the material added was still a net benefit, and the work you did improved it further. If on the other hand the students added material that had to be removed, or removed good material which you had to replace, please let us know how much time you had to spend making those corrections. This includes time you may have spent posting to the students' talk pages, or to Wikipedia noticeboards, or working with them on IRC, or any other time you spent which was required to fix problems created by the students' edits. Any work you did as a Wikipedia Ambassador for that student's class should not be counted.

Please rate the amount of time spent as follows:

  • 0 -No unproductive work to clean up
  • 1 - A few minutes of work needed
  • 2 - Between a few minutes and half an hour of work needed
  • 3 - Half an hour to an hour of work needed
  • 4 - More than an hour of work needed

Please also add any comments you feel may be helpful. We welcome ratings from multiple editors on the same article. Add your input here. Thanks! -- LiAnna Davis (WMF) (talk) 20:50, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Mampu[edit]

Perhaps we should mention Mampu forest as well, and the La Dernière Fôret documentary by Zamba Ya Suka ? KVDP (talk) 15:08, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
