Hi! Even though I do this partly to test the WikiLove feature, the barnstar is highly sincere - I do want to thank you for always being kind and helpful toward other wikipedians! Best wishes, Calandrella (talk) 11:37, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia Help Survey[edit]

Hi there, my name's Peter Coombe and I'm a Wikimedia Community Fellow working on a project to improve Wikipedia's help system. At the moment I'm trying to learn more about how people use and find the current help pages. If you could help by filling out this brief survey about your experiences, I'd be very grateful. It should take less than 10 minutes, and your responses will not be tied to your username in any way.

Thank you for your time,

EduWiki Conference 5-6 September in Leicester, UK[edit]

I am writing to you as you have signed up to the Education Meetup at Wikimania 2012 and perhaps are interested in how Wikipedia links to education. Wikimedia UK is now running a education related event that may be of interest to you: the EduWiki Conference on 5-6 September in Leicester. This event will be looking at Wikipedia and related charitable projects in terms of educational practice, including good faith collaboration, open review, and global participation. It's a chance to talk about innovative work in your institution or online community, and shape the future of Wikimedia UK's work in this area!

The conference will be of interest to educators, scholarly societies members, contributors to Wikipedia and other open education projects, and students.

For details please visit the UK Chapter Wiki.

Please feel welcome to register or promote within your network.

Thank you, Daria Cybulska (talk) 16:29, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Videos[edit]

Hi, even though I understand your good intentions videos like the ones about the singers Eurovision entries does not belong at the main articles but at the individual song articles only. I am not investing time changing any added videos but just to notify you about it. Do what you like with the info :)--BabbaQ (talk) 21:26, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

I beg to disagree. The videos show the artist move and their face from more angles than a photo and give information on one of their main assests, their voice. They also show how they pronounce their own names. All valuable information in the main article. They might not be the best possible videos but until someone makes a better one, they clearly makes the article better. By the way, what would you think would be an ideal video? We are possibly doing more videos in other subjects and would appreciate all feedback. --Ainali (talk) 05:38, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
