Choco chip cookie.png Welcome to an editing role on Wikipedia! Since you already found the Help desk and decorated your user page, I'm going to assume you know your way around pretty well, but if I can help, please leave me a note on my talk page. Happy editing! – Philosopher Let us reason together. 23:37, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Frog photo[edit]

Nice photo! I hope you get a good ID so you can add it to the appropriate article. I see that you used a 240 mm lens on your D5100. Was that straight up, or did you use a macro tube extension? -- ToE 20:56, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the encouragement! I took that photo with Nikon's DX 70-300mm (Nikon link). That lens is infamous for rapidly losing sharpness past 250mm, so I usually shoot between 230 and 250. I was out birdwatching and typically bring the D5100 for the occasional proof-of-identification shot. The frog was enjoying himself near a ditch and I just crouched down in the reeds and got the shot. More luck than anything, really! DrewHeath (talk) 22:37, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:54, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
