Did you Knows[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 15 January 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article East Holmes Academy, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that, in 1989, East Holmes Academy offered to forfeit a football game because the opponent had a black player? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/East Holmes Academy. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, East Holmes Academy), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

This applies in particular (if belatedly) to your editing at Franklin Road Academy, and more broadly to your contributions to school articles. Cheers, 2601:188:180:11F0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 01:42, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Pronouns[edit]

The gender composition of Wikipeida editors is skewed towards male editors (See WP:Gender bias and editing on Wikipedia). Many editors assume that other editors are male and refer to them with male pronouns. Many women it off putting when people assume that they are male.

To counter this bias and make women feel welcome at Wikipedia , I make a point of referring to other editors with female pronouns unless (1) their user name indicates that they are male or (2) they ask me to do otherwise.
