Good luck!


I didn't accuse you of vandalizing, as far as I can tell. Anyway, welcome again, and I apologize if there was a miscommunication. Best, [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 13:08, 2004 Aug 4 (UTC)

My condolences[edit]

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I can only begin to imagine the sorrow you must be feeling right now, and I wish you all the best in this painful time. I'm very sorry that you've lost your loved one; I hope that you'll one day be able to recover from your loss.

Sincerely,

Hello! press inquiry![edit]

Hi! This is Amgine, and I volunteer with the Wikimedia Foundation's Communications Committee, often interacting with the media. I've been asked to locate an older member of the editing community who is willing to be interviewed regarding their involvement with Wikipedia. Is this something you might subject yourself to? <grin> Please feel free to decline! - Amgine 18:44, 28 June 2006 (UTC)


Yes, I would be willing to co-operate. CoppBob 03:39, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. I just think this is one great project! CoppBob 17:31, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Welcome to WikiProject LGBT studies![edit]

Drawing-Gay flag.png

Hi, CoppBob, welcome to WikiProject LGBT Studies!

We are a growing community of Wikipedia editors dedicated to identifying, categorizing, and improving articles of interest to the LGBT community. Some points that may be helpful:

  • Our main aim is to help improve LGBT-related articles, so if someone asks for help with an article, please try your hardest to help them if you are able.
  • Most important discussions take place on the project's main discussion page; it is highly recommended that you watchlist it.
  • The project has several ongoing and developing activities, such as article quality assessment, peer review and a project-wide article collaboration, all of which you are welcome to take part in. We also have a unique program to improve our lower quality articles, Jumpaclass, so please consider signing up there.
  • If you have another language besides English, please consider adding yourself to our translation section, to help us improve our foreign LGBT topics.
  • If you're planning to stay, have a square in our quilt! You can put anything you want in it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page, and we will be happy to help you.

And once again - Welcome!

Userbox formatting[edit]

Hi. I noticed the formatting on your Michigan userbox was a little messed up. If you put:

{{User University of Michigan}}

{{-}}

instead of:

[[User University of Michigan]]

it will be formatted correctly. Best, Superm401 - Talk 14:48, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Here's Issue II of the project newsletter. We're trying to decide if this is sinking or floating. If you would like to contribute to next month's newsletter please jump right in at the News Desk! Have a great May.

The Ohio Portal

The maintainers of the Ohio Portal are looking to get it to featured status. They would like to ask all project members to help improve it any way they can. What needs to be done most is the supplying of selected articles and images.

Selected Article: Indian Head Rock

There is a eight ton rock in Ohio that was removed from the Ohio River. This rock is known as the Indian Head Rock Dating back to the early 1800’s, this rock was seen sticking out of the Ohio River and used as a navigational mark for barges along the river. The names of citizens from the town of Portsmouth, Ohio are carved into the rock from the late nineteenth a early twentieth centuries. Some of the names were of well known families from Ohio. They would swim out to the rock, have their picture taken with it or simply carve their names into it.
With the advent of the Locks and Dams along the Ohio River, the rock eventually was submerged, but the legend lived on. A gentleman from Ironton, Ohio located the rock after searching a very long time for it, and he and a crew of scuba divers recovered the rock and took it to the shore to be donated to Ohio for historical value.
After hearing the news about the rock being removed, Kentucky introduced legislation against the removal of the rock. They also want the diver who found it to be prosecuted for removing the rock. Kentucky owns the greatest part of the land the river runs on. Even the Army Corp. of Engineers got involved as to how to move the rock without damaging it. Kentucky wants to have it returned to the river.

Reedy Bot and ShepBot are currently hard at work tagging all of the Ohio articles. We may need to have an assessment drive when the bots are finished. Think of it as a late spring cleaning. Please note your opinions on the project talkpage if you would be interested in helping!
Over 10,000 articles have been tagged with {{OH-Project}}
