Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel[edit]

Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel
Wikimedia New York City logo.svg

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:14, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Common fig[edit]

That's a 335 page book... a page reference to the bit on fig wasps would be nice. All the best, Chiswick Chap (talk) 22:03, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, right, I forgot it this time. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 23:19, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Hudson River Museum[edit]

I was telling you I may had some pictures I didn't put in an album from a short trip I did in NYC and a day out in the Hudson Valley, and I discovered my photo is already there: I didn't even know I had uploaded it to wikimedia ;-) --Elisa.rolle (talk) 22:15, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Cool, yeah, I went here once and really enjoyed it. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 22:27, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Lyndhurst (mansion)[edit]

here you have some other pictures of Lyndhurst:, if necessary I can upload an high quality image (now I can, 4KB). --Elisa.rolle (talk) 22:31, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Damn, neat stuff. Glad there are more shots of the mansion, grounds, and outbuildings. If you have more from the Vanderbilt Mansion (I saw 2 or 3 of yours), that would be great too. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 22:35, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
Or any interiors? ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 22:45, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
Lyndhurst was closed (but it was a beautiful day the gardener let me wander the park), I have something more of the Vanderbilt, but not interior. --Elisa.rolle (talk) 23:04, 30 March 2017 (UTC)


you have here Kykuit photos: --Elisa.rolle (talk) 22:51, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Union Church of Pocantico Hills[edit]

Union Church of Pocantico Hills:, better quality can be uploaded--Elisa.rolle (talk) 22:56, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site[edit]

Nope, just few, I was using the reflex camera at the time: --Elisa.rolle (talk) 23:00, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

What's your current camera? ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 23:01, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
Nikon D3000, before it was a Nikkormat of the '70s. --Elisa.rolle (talk) 23:03, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
@Elisa.rolle: Ok. I'd really recommend upgrading, especially considering all the places you're going, it'll definitely be worth it to get something like the D7200. I upgraded from a 3100 (same essentially as the 3000) to a 5100 and then the 7100, and it's way better. If you don't already, I'd also recommend shooting in RAW; that allows you to later go into Photoshop or similar programs to get rid of distortion (happens with almost every building photo) and correct overexposed or underexposed photos, as well as other things. ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 00:02, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

This is it for the Hudson Valley[edit]

with above and the link to the book I sent yesterday, this is it for the Hudson Valley. I have more in Pennsylvania, Maine, Massachussetts, New Jersey, Connecticut... but for the Duchess County and Hudson Valley no. --Elisa.rolle (talk) 23:11, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Okay neat, thanks so much! ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 00:02, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
