  • Earthy Elissa, thanks for helping with this class, can't wait to work with you! -Enarowski (talk) 14:56, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Sam the Snacker, Hi there! Trying really hard to be in this class, but currently on the waitlist. Hope to be working with you this semester! -SamDiamond88 (talk) 21:29, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Amanda! Thanks for helping out with our class! Looking forward to working with you. Best, Energetic Emily Nucomm23 (talk) 03:49, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
@Enarowski, SamDiamond88, and Nucomm23: Hi everyone, welcome to the class! I'm using this as a chance to test out/show you the "reply-to" function. Because I used it, you should all have gotten red notifications near your user name at the top of the screen when you logged into Wikipedia. You can use this to make sure other users see your reply on talk page conversations. (The talkback function is another way to encourage discussion on Wikipedia, but I think reply-to is easier.) Just use the syntax on this page. You don't have to use the reply-to function, and not everyone does, but I think it makes conversation easier.
And, one more note: I re-ordered this talk page a little, so that the most recent posts are at the bottom. That's a general Wikipedia norm -- you can always find the most recent conversation at the bottom of a talk page. To leave a message for anyone on their talk page, just use the "new section" tab at the top -- it automatically makes a new are for you where you need it.
Please let me know if you have any questions -- and welcome to Wikipedia! AmandaRR123 (talk) 14:29, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi AmandaRR123, I guess I am doing alright with my page on Momofuku-Milk Bar. I am a little frustrated with all the back and forth between myself and JesseRafe. I am just trying to figure out how I can use some of that content that keeps getting deleted since i feel like the page is not developed enough without it. I am just not sure what else I can add that won't be deleted. Nwells1229 (talk) 03:12, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi AmandaRR123, Hope you're doing well! I had a quick question in regards to changing the title of my Wikipedia page. I think it would be stronger (and easier to search for) without the "the". I want it to read "Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative". Is there an easy way to change this? I couldn't seem to find it in Wikipedia's guidelines. Thanks! -- Jretrum (talk) 21:46, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Clarence "Jeep" Jones[edit]

Hi, Amanda, and thanks for your comments at the Clarence "Jeep" Jones deletion discussion. If you are helping with this class, can you please get ahold of Matt and tell him to do something NOW with those sources he said he has? Take a look at his talk page and you can see that both KDS4444 and I have been encouraging him, trying to help him, and warning him with increasing urgency that he doesn't have unlimited time to save this article. Actually, the current discussion cycle will close next Monday, April 6. I even sent him an email telling him this. He wouldn't even actually have to cite the sources in the text at this time (though he does have to do that later). He could just list them at the bottom of the article under "additional references" or "further reading" or some such heading - just so we can see what he has. There are a lot of people who want to save this article, but we may not be able to do it without Matt at least showing us what kind of sources are available. It's his assignment, after all; he needs to step up and take responsibility for it. Thanks. --MelanieN (talk) 23:50, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks MelanieN -- we looked at it today and spoke about a path forward, so hopefully he'll be adding some more content soon! I'm adding in some extras, too, under your suggested heading. AmandaRR123 (talk) 01:28, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

A new reference tool[edit]

Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Art Jewelry Forum[edit]

Hello, I am working on a pet project to help digitize information about the field of metalsmithing+jewelry. I started with making a page for Art jewelry forum (AJF), and have a list of artists that I would like to make pages for as well. The AJF page has been nominated for deletion because it is questioned if the organization is "notable". I am reaching out to you because I saw that you edited some pages that relate to studio craft, and thought you may have an informed opinion (unlike the mathematician who nominated the page for deletion) about whether or not it is a "notable organization". If you have an opinion, one way or another, please way in on the articles for deletion discussion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Art_jewelry_forumClarefinin (talk) 20:25, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:02, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

ALA Midwinter[edit]

Have there been any plans made to have a Wikipedia presence at ALA Midwinter next month? I am going to be there and would be happy to man a booth for a few hours. Let me know what kind of help you guys need (if any). --LibraryGurl (talk) 14:30, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

@Librarygurl: That's an excellent question! Since The Wikipedia Library was the group manning a booth at Annual (and the first and so far only group at an ALA conference?), I'm thinking Astinson (WMF) might know, with his WMF hat on. Just guessing: since ALA Midwinter is slightly smaller, there isn't any formal booth or exhibit planned, but we could always try an informal meetup. AmandaRR123 (talk) 16:35, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
@Nikkimaria: will be attending the ALISE meeting for TWL, and I believe has a booth at ALISE, during the main ALA conference we haven't scheduled anything, but Nikki will likely to attend and we would be happy to help you pay for copying of flyers and/or handouts from the TWL outreach materials. I am unfortunately, going to be at the WMF all hands meeting that -- its a good thing for me to be at, but I miss ALA. Astinson (WMF) (talk) 15:30, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello, my name is Zach Speed. I'm currently taking Online Communities and wanted to get some practice communicating via Wikipedia. Looking forward to working with you this semeste! Zach Speed (talk) 23:22, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi! My name is Ryan Leys from Online Communities (I didn't see a spot for Spring 2016 so I hope you don't mind me dropping a message here). I look forward to learning what you have to share over the next few months. Ryanleys (talk) 14:17, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

@Speed.z and Ryanleys: It's great to hear from both of you! I hope you don't mind, but I reordered your comments on this page a bit. The convention, for Wikipedia, is that the most recent comments are always at the bottom of a talk page. And Ryanleys, you correctly noted that you didn't see a spot for 2016 Online Communities (at the time); however, you are totally empowered to create a new section whenever starting a new conversation on someone's talk page. Please feel free to send me a message if you have any other questions, and welcome to Wikipedia. AmandaRR123 (talk) 14:47, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Ipsy (Company) Feedback[edit]

Hi Amanda, I am part of User:Reagle Online Communications class. As part of our project, I finally was able to move my sandbox into a public space under ipsy (company). I received a lot of pushback my first time posting outside of my sandbox and ultimately had my article proposed to be deleted, then quickly deleted after that. I have since addressed some changes and eliminated vagueness and promotional content. I also addressed my sources. My next step will be to assure my page is not an orphan. As a way for reaching out for feedback as a newcomer in this society, I was wondering if you would mind taking a look and giving me your thoughts! Thank you!

Event coordinator[edit]

Hi, the English Wikipedia recently created a new user permission for editors involved in off-wiki outreach work, event coordinator. This new permission allows users to mark accounts for confirmed for up to 10 days, and also allows them to create accounts for events without rate limits without some of the features of the account creator right that aren't used at edit-a-thons and other events. I have added the event coordinator permission to your account and removed the account creator permission, as you appear to have been using it mainly for outreach work.

This should have no noticeable impact on your ability to create accounts, and will give you the extra ability to temporarily confirm accounts if you need to. For more information, you can see the information page on the right, or you can ask me if you have any questions. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:37, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
