Nice work[edit]

Hey! Nice work building FAIR USE Act. This article should be eligible for appearing on the main page as a "Did you know" entry, if it is nominated it soon; it is supposed to be nominated within 5 days of being created or significantly (5x) expanded.

The instructions for nominating it are at Template talk:Did you know. Basically, all you need to do is take this code if you created a new article:

{{subst:NewDYKnom| article= | hook=... that ? | status=new | author=  }}

or this code if you expanded it

{{subst:NewDYKnom| article= | hook=... that ? | status=expanded | author= }}

and write the hook, a concise and interesting bit of info from the article beginning with "... that" and ending with a question mark. The info from the hook has to be present in the article and supported (in the article) with a citation. Someone will double-check to make sure the source says what it's claimed to say.

Once you've come up with a hook, fill in your username as the author and fill the title of the article, then add the above code, including your hook following the "hook=" part, to the top of the appropriate section for the day the article was started on the DYK template talk page. The code will produce an entry formatted like the others. After that, just keep an eye on the entry; if anyone brings up an issue with it, try to address it. I'll keep an eye out as well. If everything goes well, it will appear on the Main Page for several hours a few days from now.


Probably you'd need to nominate it today; if you need any help, let me know.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 14:27, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi there!
I reviewed your article at DYK. I had a few comments that you should address, but overall, I must agree; it looks like you've done a great job with the FAIR USE Act article. Nice work! --Starstriker7(Talk) 01:36, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi - I met you at the summit this weekend, and am just leaving comments on talk for everyone I met for future communication. Kevin (talk) 17:27, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Moglen classes[edit]

It would be good if you could "officially" sign as Campus Ambassador at Wikipedia:United States Education Program/MOU/sign#American Legal History (Eben Moglen) and Wikipedia:United States Education Program/MOU/sign#Law in the Internet Society (Eben Moglen).

Also, it would be great to start the wiki page for the Internet Society course, as you did already for the American Legal one. Thanks!--Pharos (talk) 01:52, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

This barnstar is awarded to everyone who - whatever their opinion - contributed to the discussion about Wikipedia and SOPA. Thank you for being a part of the discussion. Presented by the Wikimedia Foundation.

Thanks for your talk[edit]

Nice talk yesterday at Wikipedia Day. Thanks for presenting. Good luck with your ambassadorship and law school. When you get a study break, do watch The Paper Chase. Good movie. Jweiss11 (talk) 17:33, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Good luck with your presentation for Wikimania. I don't think I'm going to make it down to DC this summer, but I plan on taking part in Wikimania Takes Manhattan. On a somewhat/not-so related note, I've gotten involved in recent months with Americans Elect as a delegate leader and local organizer. I'm hoping to connect with individuals and clubs at NYC-area campuses to bolster participation for events in the city. If you know of any progressive, politically-minded folks at NYU Law, it would be great if you could point me in their direction. Thanks so much and all the best.

Disambiguation link notification for October 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Revenge porn, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Hackers (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

DYK for Revenge porn[edit]

Gatoclass (talk) 15:33, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome[edit]

I don't usually acknowledge these ECHO thanks, although I do appreciate them (it would be nice if the software allowed us to say "you're welcome" the same way) but I'm making an exception here because I'm glad you created the article. A year or so ago, User:Jayen466 considered whether we could have an article on revenge porn. I couldn't find enough on it, really, so we decided a wiktionary entry was better. Now that things have changed, you stepped up. Good for you. Daniel Case (talk) 00:47, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Questions re: NYPD Wikipedia edits[edit]

Hey Levendowski,

I'm a journalist looking to get some comments from Wikimedia commenters in NYC on the NYPD edits to Wikipedia that were released by Capital New York. I reached out because I saw that you were part of the NYC Wikipedia Meetup group, and also edit on tech and free speech. Would it be possible to have a talk?

Thanks so much!
