Peabody Essex Museum Edit-a-thon on May 3[edit]

Hi Elizabeth,

We're excited to see you at the Peabody Essex Museum on Saturday for our very-first Wikipedia edit-a-thon!

As one of the more experienced editors coming to the event, I was wondering if you could help us introduce new editors to all the how-to's of Wikipedia. It's looking like there will be a lot of first-time editors there (both PEM staff and outside editors). I'm sure that they will have lots of questions about how Wikipedia works, creating new articles, etc., and it would be great if you could help support them during the editing session in the afternoon and answer any questions they may have.

In the morning we'll be hosting a "Wiki 101" session to introduce new editors to Wikipedia. This will cover how Wikipedia works, the goals of Wikipedia, and some basics of getting set up with an account and creating/editing an article. Would you be willing to help us lead this session? If so let Ed Rodley or myself know. We'd really love to have your help!

Either way, I hope we can rely on you all to help out the new editors during the afternoon.

Looking forward to meeting you, Cathy — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cathypem (talkcontribs) 23:16, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

January 2016[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Ralph Adams Cram may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "()"s and 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • * The [[First Presbyterian Church [[Tacoma, Washington)|First Presbyterian Church]], [[Tacoma, Washington]], 1923

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, BracketBot (talk) 03:37, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svgHello, Ethomsen. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. Mdann52 (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Reference on Tarmac[edit]

Hey Ethomsen!

Just a quick note to let you know I've re-added the reference you removed on Tarmac, as it's still a useful reference. Now that the link is unfortunately dead, we can use the |archive-url= and |archive-date= parameters to pass in a link to an archival service such as archive.org. Most of the time, you can search it for a URL and find an old version of the page that still has the data, and just add the parameters to the citation template. If you look at the reference now as it exists on the page, you can see there's a link to both the archived version, and the original (now dead) link.

Cheers :D

I should have thought of that -- thanks!
