Madagascar (1994 film)[edit]

Wow - that's pretty impressive for a first contribution ! Do you have a special interest in that film, or are you planning to do more like that ? (By the way, I don't think you meant to flag that as minor.) -- Beardo 23:50, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

I wrote my undergraduate honors thesis on the film and have since written a few other papers on Cuban film and cultural history. I'm going to try to integrate a few more of my comments into the descriptions of other films - in particular films that I feel are not granted sufficient significance among non-Cuban audiences and critics. Are you familiar with this stuff? Perhaps you benevolently monitor it?

Oh, and you are right, I certainly didn't mean to flag it as minor...newbie screw up. Aaronshaw

Thanks. I suspect that this is verging on original research, but wikipedia needs more like this, not less. It would be good if you could cite some sources (especially for the parts about ICAIC and the intended trilogy).
I don't claim any great familiarity. I haven't seen any of Perez's films yet (though I saw him speak at the premiere for El Benny - the director of that film had worked as his assistant at one stage.) -- Beardo 03:52, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Just stoppin' by to say hello![edit]

Hiya Aaron, this was an interesting class! Love learning about Wikipedia! Hopefully I'll be able to write a Wikipedia article about my brother, Hughie Stone Fish but I don't think he is big enough (yet!) Averysf (talk) 19:41, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Greetings from GabiRavioli[edit]

The ceiling of La Sagrada Familia.

Hi Aaron! I thought you might enjoy this picture of part of La Sagrada Familia. It is my favorite place in the world, created by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. --Gabiravioli (talk) 00:49, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

[Insert bike part here][edit]

Hi Aaron! If I could I would leave something like a bike wheel or bike part for you but I have not quite figured that out yet...--Zyvzyva (talk) 15:37, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Notability question[edit]

I was just looking over the discussion on your class noticeboard and I noticed that you had pinged me about the question of notability. I thought I must have missed it, but looking though my notices I can't find it. Which is not reassuring.

I exchanged some messages with Cierra about the question of whether the restaurant was notable. Without seeing the sources, it's hard to tell for sure whether the restaurant is notable, but reviews in major publications would suggest that it is notable. The key would probably how substantively the reviews focussed on the restaurant (a few lines in passing, or several paragraphs discussing it in some depth). In the end though, of course, it becomes a question of what the AFD participants think, assuming it came to that.

In the end, of course, it boils down to whether they (and really, you) want to have the possibility of an deletion discussion in the middle of trying to create an article. It could be a good learning experience, or it could just be a distraction. And there's always the option of finishing it in a sandbox if things don't go well.

The real question is whether an article about this restaurant meets the learning objectives of this part of your class. Ian (Wiki Ed) (talk) 12:25, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia Adventure nominated for deletion[edit]

Hi, I'm notifying you of a discussion where I mentioned you because you have been involved with The Wikipedia Adventure. You can comment here: Wikipedia:Miscellany_for_deletion/Wikipedia:The_Wikipedia_Adventure_(2nd_nomination). Cheers, Jake Ocaasi t | c 15:43, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Change in your user rights[edit]

Your Wikipedia account was previously granted a user right called "course instructor" by the Wiki Education Foundation. That right enabled you to create a course page through the EducationProgram MediaWiki extension. Starting in fall 2015, the Wiki Education Foundation has discontinued its use of this extension. Going forward, users should create course pages through the Wiki Education Foundation website. That application is more user-friendly, and any content is automatically mirrored to Wikipedia. To prevent confusion, we'll be removing your "course instructor" user right, as it is not needed with the new system. This is simply a notification of the technical change to your account. No action is needed from you at this time.

If you plan on teaching with Wikipedia for the fall 2015 term, please email me ( for instructions how to create your next course page using our new system. --Helaine (Wiki Ed) (talk), sent by MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 02:34, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Signpost query[edit]

Hi Aaron, thank you for the review! I made one change I wanted to run by you, "female participation or feminine perspectives" to simply "female participation or perspectives". But, do Ford and Wajcman make a distinction between "female" vs. "feminine"? Am I glossing over an important difference? If so, please revert. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 03:15, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

@Peteforsyth, sounds fine to me. Thanks for reaching out! I think the distinction I was trying to capture was relatively minor and semantic, i.e., "female" ("authored by people who identify as women") vs "feminine" ("on topics or in a tone that aligns with generally feminine identities/norms/perspectives"). Maybe there's a better way to say it, but I'm not troubled by your edit. Aaron (talk) 17:16, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
