Assignments[edit]

Hi. Just copied your disclaimer, hope you don't mind. (didn't put in quote, added source but that might drop off if I edit it, ok?) Do you put your specific assignment instructions on Wikipedia? I like to learn from them… Thanks! ProfGray (talk) 15:07, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

ProfGray Hi! I do not mind at all. I kind of like the disclaimer, though I am still working on it. Let me know if you tweak it and it gets better. All my course materials are public on the web so take whatever you like and modify it. All my course materials are on the Blogger pages for my classes (on the right hand side of my blog). So, in this case, ENG102 and ENG280. The ENG103 version boots up in March. My main-page is here: http://cunygames.blogspot.com Happy Holidays! HullIntegrity (talk) 15:30, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, looks great. ProfGray (talk) 18:57, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
ProfGray No problem! Let me know if I can help with anything. :) HullIntegrity (talk) 19:50, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your helpful comments on the Education Noticeboard! I think it's really good to have public discussion about the details of what works and doesn't from an instructor's perspective — especially with people who also understand Wikipedia well from an editor's perspective! ragesoss (talk) 19:06, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Saturday February 7 in NYC: Black Life Matters Editathon[edit]

Saturday February 7 in NYC: Black Life Matters Editathon

Schomburg-center.jpg

You are invited to join us at New York Public Library's Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture for our upcoming editathon, a part of the Black WikiHistory Month campaign (which also includes events in Brooklyn and Westchester!).

12:00pm - 5:00 pm at NYPL Schomburg Center, 515 Malcolm X Boulevard (Lenox Avenue), by W 135th St

The Wikipedia training and editathon will take place in the Aaron Douglas Reading Room of the Jean Blackwell Hutson Research and Reference Division, with a reception following in the Langston Hughes lobby on the first floor of the building at 5:00pm.

We hope to see you there!--Pharos (talk) 06:03, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it would be great if you and others could join as Account Creators. Usually, though, they ask us to do this on a temporary basis, for particular editathons, and we should set this up more in advance.--Pharos (talk) 23:24, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Gandalf's race[edit]

I think within the concept of The Lord of the Rings "Wizard" is good enough for Gandalf's race, he isn't really described as an Ainu in LOTR but it is clear he is not a "Man".

but also the hobbits' chief allies and travelling companions: the Men Aragorn, a Ranger of the North, and Boromir, a Captain of Gondor; Gimli, a Dwarf warrior; Legolas, an Elven prince; and Gandalf, a Wizard.

The text could be improved though as it doesn't flow very well don't you think? GimliDotNet (talk) 16:24, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, it is sort of an awkward sentence overall. I am thinking it over. I really do not like messing with Tolkien articles as there is some tendency for people to "descend" on you, lol. Though in this case, you seem to be the "people". :) HullIntegrity (talk) 16:29, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. That link is really really useful. I like learning new things. HullIntegrity (talk) 18:24, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

copied from AFD[edit]

Thank you. My issue is that this deletion has potentially serious long-term implications for my students' work. They currently work on award winning-books, so I have had no serious problems as of yet, but I will eventually try to expand the area beyond "award winners" . . . . eventually. There are a lot of awards. Does "it should run its course now" mean I should just shut up? That would be kind of sad. HullIntegrity (talk) 19:11, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Depends. If you have new arguments (or better yet sources) for why the article should be kept as is, then by all means add them. However suggesting that the deletion process be aborted is probably a dead end. As I said, if the article is deleted, that is not the end of the line; you are free to make a copy of the article in WP:DRAFTS where it can be worked on until it is ready (and meets the relevant guidelines). That is a good solution for any other books that may be questionable as well. Books don't necessarily have to win awards to be notable. Thats just an easy way to prove it. If there are significant reviews or commentary in reliable sources, or lots of other ways described in WP:BKCRIT can get things past the bar. Although I personally do not think this book currently meets our standards, we decide things by WP:CONSENSUS here. The closer may well decide there is no consensus in this discussion, which would result in the article being kept by default. Gaijin42 (talk) 19:20, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
User:Gaijin42 So you effectively just said "shut up and camp it until no one cares any longer"? LOL. You do not have to answer that. HullIntegrity (talk) 19:30, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Why did you link my name to ProfGray? No, thats not what I said at all. I said thats a place where you can work on an article until it meets our standards. If you don't like those standards, start an RFC to change them, but they are there for a reason. Lots of people try and use wikipedia as a promotional medium for their books, companies, band, etc. To avoid that problem, we have clear and objective standards for what we include. The book in question doesn't meet those standards. Maybe it will in the future, but that is WP:CRYSTAL. An alternative would be to set up Childrensbooks.wikia.com or something like that dedicated to the topic, where you may set whatever standards you wish. See http://docuwiki.net/ for an example for documentaries, the vast majority of which are not notable enough for a wikipedia article, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth talking about somewhere. I'm trying to explain things to you, and help you. Your snark and combativeness are not appreciated. Gaijin42 (talk) 19:38, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Gaijin42 That was a total accident on the cross referencing with another user. I made a mistake with the code. Apologies. And I certainly do not intend to be snarky or combative. Thank you for the very useful suggestions and for trying to explain things to me. HullIntegrity (talk) 22:41, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Gaijin42 And my tendency to be a smart-ass is genetic. I cannot fix it, so I just try to work it for good rather than evil. :) HullIntegrity (talk) 23:39, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
I gather that I'm an innocent bystander in the culture wars here, eh? Good luck to you both, ProfGray (talk) 02:37, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
ProfGray Yeah . . . sorry about that. Note to self: be very very careful when cutting and pasting code. HullIntegrity (talk) 16:11, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Young Adult Authors[edit]

Actually, on lists like this, a measure of notability is whether there is a Wikipedia article about either the author or the book. Otherwise, vanity press authors will use Wikipedia to promote their books. If you feel this specific author is notable, please include a reference (and fix the typos in the entry). Otherwise, I may re delete them. And I've won multiple awards for my own YA books, but my name was taken off the list as 'non notable' as well. It's pretty subjunctive. Czolgolz (talk) 15:52, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@Czolgolz:: Thanks for replying. Methinks I will just undo my undo, so to speak. HullIntegritytalk / 15:57, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

sandbox[edit]

Sorry about that. I was using AWB to replace {{user sandbox}} with a template that doesn't lead to AfC for all the users enrolled in current courses (at least, the ones that didn't get taken care of preemptively by User:RagesossBot). But I clicked saved right after seeing your username, and it was too late to take back.--ragesoss (talk) 22:37, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

@Ragesoss: No worries. Let's file that under "things that give me the willies". (Whatever "the willies" may be, I think I had them.) ;) HullIntegritytalk / 23:02, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

AFD - Alyse Squillace[edit]

Hi HullIntegrity, just thought i would explain how this came about; i came across the article as an orphan, added some wikilinks, did a little rewrite, then saw the 'deadlink'. Tried to fix it then searched for her name on google and Trove (this is where the article started to unravel?). Sorry, but was unable to leave the article as unable to find notable info on her or her books. I was going to add all this to your talk page and ask if you could find info about Alyse that i could not but had to go to work. I see that you have already added to the debate, thanks. Have added further info to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Alyse SquillaceCoolabahapple (talk) 15:12, 16 February 2015 (UTC) @Coolabahapple: -- Will see what i can do. HullIntegritytalk / 15:37, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

@Coolabahapple: - I pinged you on the talk as well. I have nothing on this author. And the originating editor of the article is not registered. Could this one be a scam/hoax? Answer here or on the AFD talk, whichever you are comfortable with. HullIntegritytalk / 16:04, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Could be, as it is designated a stub and low importance probably no one has looked closely at it:)Coolabahapple (talk) 16:29, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
as a sidepoint i am going to concentrate on child lit orphans (poor little critters are all alone in the wikisphere:)), so u may have some more funny little articles appearing on your talk page in the future, if thats okay??Coolabahapple (talk) 01:55, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
@Coolabahapple: - Of course that is ok. Send them my way. If I can help find sources, I will help save them. HullIntegritytalk / 02:13, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

James Whitcomb Riley GA status for childs lit?[edit]

Hi HullIntegrity, was looking at orphans and articles with deprecated parameters and noticed that the Talk:James Whitcomb Riley article has not been assessed by the child lit project. Other projects have given it a ga rating (United States / Indiana, Biography / Arts and Entertainment, and Poetry). Can it also be assigned a ga for child's lit or does it need to go throught the ga nomination process again (i have had a quick look at the edits since the ga assessment and they dont appear to have reduced the article's rating)? in the interim, i have rated it B (looks funny with all the other ga ratings:)) and a mid importance. thanks. Coolabahapple (talk) 04:43, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Finders Keepers?[edit]

hi hull, nosing around articles with too few wikilinks and came across Finders Keepers?. ive been a bit harsh on this article (added lots of notices) also reduced its rating see view history of Talk:Finders Keepers?, (isn't it a bit naughty to self assess?:) - here i am trying to reduce the number of issues relating to child lit wikiproject and im just adding to them:)) Coolabahapple (talk) 13:31, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

@Coolabahapple: Hey! What would you like me to do with/to it? Or just seeking an opinion? HullIntegritytalk / 21:02, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
oops, (sorry i was a bit tired here downunder:)) just wondering if what i have done is appropriate?Coolabahapple (talk) 00:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
@Coolabahapple: It looks good to me! I certainly would not take issue with any of your alerts and fixes. Thanks for working with Children's Lit.! HullIntegritytalk / 16:53, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Goggles![edit]

hi HullIntegrity, wandering around the unassessed child lit articles i came across this little stubby article on a book by Ezra Jack Keats. As Ezra is a caldecott medal winner i thought you might like to look into improving it (or like me add it to a to do list:))Coolabahapple (talk) 10:09, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Category:Unassessed children and young adult literature articles[edit]

Hi HullIntegrity, sorry i havent sent you any lonely orphans as i have been working on the above for the last week or so, getting thru about 10 to 20 each day. Hopefully it will be at zero in a couple of weeks:) The other day I had a look at the Category:Wikipedia assessment backlog, being a curious cat/kitten. CAT:UNBIO has over 125,000 entries!! So if i had a spare 10 or so years i could start working on them ... maybe not:) Coolabahapple (talk) 06:11, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Cute grey kitten.jpg

Hi HullIntegrity, still going through Unassessed child lit articles and this one was just added by User:Robina Fox - The Nine Lives of Montezuma. i was going to assess it as stub/low but as it is about a cat, thought i would improve it, but the only stuff i can find on it are kids/amateur(?) blog reviews (there are heaps of them!) and some seller sites, so the wikideleter in me is saying it should be afdd, but its a book about a cat! Are you able to help in finding some notable refs? thanks:) ps. this kitten pic is saying 'Pweeeeze don dewlete me!'  :))

Coolabahapple (talk) 23:37, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Coolabahapple Thank you! Love my LOL cat. :) I have seen stuff from Robina that is fine, so I will check to see if it a "draft in progress" tomorrow. Totally whipped today. HullIntegritytalk / 01:54, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm. Robina did not originate the article but has worked on it recently. I would not AFD it at this point. But I will add it to my watch list to see what is going on. It looks very "in progress" (like one of my students' early stubs). Plus it is a book about a CAT! HullIntegritytalk / 02:08, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I will ask Robina what is up with that article. HullIntegritytalk / 12:54, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
  • as im sure you have seen, i added a Reception with a couple of reviews, not sure if they are notable, but if they are okay (although i would suggest they would be seen by most wikieditors as WP:USERG) some of the other reviews might just squeak (where are the cute wikimouse pics?:)) over the line. will continue looking (and hoping:)) Coolabahapple (talk) 13:20, 20 March 2015 (UTC) ps. thx for the kitten!

@220 of Borg:Now calm down, it's not quite that desperate! The admin on Nepali Wikipedia is not MN but Nirmal Dulal, to whose horrible cut-and-paste "move" you alerted me on 6th April. And see what a week I've had since then, thank you! My head is spinning from it all and I keep trying to stay away from Nepal (lovely country, weird editors) but getting drawn back. I've just done a blitz of an edit on Myanglung Campus, deleting a lot of inappropriate content, without realising that MN had edited it just half an hour previously. He mentions his edits on Phuwatapa Village but hasn't edited that since 9 April under his user name - there's been a new editor and an IP editing it today (and I've already mended it after one of the edits broke the brackets of {{mi}}). To HullIntegrity: Good luck! PamD 20:53, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

PS To HullIntegrity: I note that MN has pinged you unsuccessfully on his talk page - but here I have some sympathy with him. Could I ask you to consider using a serif font for your signature, because in the current font the "ll" (lower case Ls) and the "I"(upper case "i") are indistinguishable!

The Horsecatcher[edit]

Hi hullIntegrity, I have just assessed the above article for child lit and saw on the talk page that it is one of your Education Program:CUNY, LaGuardia Community College/ENG103: The Research Paper (A Newbery Medal Project) (Spring 2015). However, i couldn't see it listed there! The creator of the article is User:Itsromeo who is listed as working on Lauren Barnholdt, which you are working on(?), and Alice Lide. Just thought you would like to know:) Coolabahapple (talk) 11:10, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Hey @Coolabahapple:! I always like hearing from you. That particular class (a research class) is working on creating 4 stubs per student at the moment, but the Edu page for my class no longer allows us to add more than one project for them at a time, which I consider an incidental "enforcement" of unwritten and non-consensus policy, but I am saving that argument for later. Does that answer the question? And, yes, I do like to know things, so your observations are always very welcome. :) HullIntegritytalk / 14:20, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
@Coolabahapple:-- Just a quick follow up. That issue seems to have been (mysteriously) resolved and the students will have all the articles they are working on (again, 4-5 each) listed on the course page hopefully by Tuesday. That will really simplify my life! We will, of course, add categories and banner them all as well (as time allows). Cheers, HullIntegritytalk / 14:57, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
@HullIntegrity:, thanks for the info. p.s. i have finished going thru the unassessed child lit articles and are now ploughing thru the stubbies, starting at the low imports (see the Current article statistics at Wikipedia:WikiProject Children's literature, yoohoo!) to see if their assessments need updating and doing any little fixes. Of course any caldie/newbie medal articles i come across i will let you know:) Coolabahapple (talk) 06:06, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Education Program:CUNY, LaGuardia Community College/ENG103: The Research Paper (A Newbery Medal Project) (Spring 2015)[edit]

Hi HullIntegrity, i have recently been bumping into articles which are listed in the above program, but not all of them have the ed program tag on their talk pages (some didn't have talk pages and/or child lit/women writers projects) so i've gone thru them and added whatever was needed (i haven't checked the articles listed under your name as i reckon the boss should know what he is doing:)). Hope this is ok. Coolabahapple (talk) 17:39, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

@Coolabahapple: -- Go for it! Any help is useful. I do not want my students working with code out of class unless they are very proficient and, as this is a hybrid/online class we only meet for 2 hours a week, so very few of them will work on the code without me or my in-class Wiki-rep looking over their shoulder. The most recent class meeting was for coding (adding categories and adding banners) but we had low attendance due to unusually nice weather. I will also check, though, for who has not properly added banners ASAP. Cheers, HullIntegritytalk / 19:36, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

The Year of Billy Miller[edit]

Hi HullIntegrity, i have just reassessed the above article from stub to start class, i was tempted to grade it 'c' but am quite conservative (some may say eccentric:)) in the way i assess articles eg. if it ain't got an infobox it probably won't get past stub (yes, i know they're not required but i like them, saying this with trepedation, awaiting the backlash from antiboxers:)). That said, i have saved it on my computer as an example of a good solid wikiarticle for when i commence swamping wiki with my own child lit book articles. ps. i hope you had a great wikiholiday and look forward to seeing more of your great contributions. Coolabahapple (talk) 04:27, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Coolabahapple Hey! I am back online. I think "start" works and please be conservative. I might prefer an editor outside our "loop" to upgrade it further; but that may be me being silly and perhaps unlikely. In amy case, I am gearing up for the semester. :) HullIntegritytalk / 14:28, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community for our monthly "WikiWednesday" evening salon (7-9pm) and knowledge-sharing workshop at Babycastles gallery by 14th Street / Union Square in Manhattan.

Special this month, a Mini-Video opportunity for individuals to share their Wikipedia experiences (during pre-meeting, 6-7pm, and in side-office during regular meetup). A videographer will be present to record 1-3 minute Mini-Videos of folks informally speaking, sharing anything about their Wikipedia-related projects, whether an edit-a-thon they joined, an article they edited, or a class project they were a part of, etc.

We will also follow up on plans for recent (Art+Feminism!) and upcoming edit-a-thons, and other outreach activities.

We welcome the participation of our friends from the Free Culture movement and from all educational and cultural institutions interested in developing free knowledge projects.

We will also place our chapter's votes for the global Wikimedia Foundation board.

After the main meeting, pizza/chicken/vegetables and refreshments and video games in the gallery!

6:00pm - 7:00pm Mini-Video and social hour
7:00pm - 9:00pm Regular meeting: Introduction for new participants, Noshing, Chapter projects

We especially encourage folks to add your 5-minute lightning talks to our roster, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience!

There's a discussion around these autoblocks at WP:ANI. Unblock is on hold until we figure out what's going on. If you have any insight, please comment here. --Yamla (talk) 18:09, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

I have lifted the blocks on your training session participants - except User:Iwachiw2001g. That clearly is a sockpuppet account of User:Iwachiw2001, and you can thank Mr Iwachiw for causing this. Would you mind giving us a list of the usernames of your participants so we can prevent Mr Iwachiw from hiding within your course? Of course he can contest his block through the regular means, but he's still blocked, and creating a new account to edit despite the block is block evasion. Huon (talk) 21:23, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
Huon, Yamla, Pharos--User:Iwachiw2001g is not mine. But a quick look at their user page indicates they are wikiEd and under supervision of an experienced Wikipedian and Professor. During training, which I do often, new users have to create new accounts for a variety of reasons. If they are not yet making content edits, why block them from the use of their sandboxes? How else are they supposed to learn anything? And I repeat--no content edits, ergo no sock, or meat, puppetry. Which is not even to mention that I was also blocked. Seriously? HullIntegritytalk / 19:58, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Huon, Yamla, Pharos--And no, I will not be supplying anyone with a list of my trainees and do not want them marked as "students". They are new Wikipedians just like we all were once. None of mine are editing live content so the "sockpuppetry" call is vacuous. HullIntegritytalk / 20:08, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't notice the course Iwachiw2001 had signed up for wasn't yours. I do think, though, that listing the participants is a rather standard practice for such Education Project courses. On an unrelated note, you were not actively blocked at all; you just ran into an autoblock and likely would have run into Iwachiw2001's autoblock, too. That unfortunately is the disadvantage of having blocked editors share the computer lab. Huon (talk) 21:28, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Huon Hi. Thank you for understanding. A clarification: I do not believe I ever said that my trainees were a part of an Education Project. I am not affiliated with WikiEdu in any way at this time, though I have been in the past. That said, many training sessions--particularly "grass roots" ones--will happen in a lab using one server, perhaps at a college, perhaps at a library, maybe even a coffee shop. The autoblock is not taking that into consideration. I hate to say it, but it screws the poor who do not have their own computers and have to use labs. It deters new users because a few jackalopes want to hack Wikipedia and put the word "poo" in a gazillion articles, or the more expert users who want to influence policy. The autoblock should be searching live article and discussion activity and not account creation. Anyone should get an account. Blocking an account for activity makes sense, blocking it because it simply exists is not what Wikipedia has ever been about. HullIntegritytalk / 21:38, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Cullman Education and Research Building at the Museum of Modern Art, 4 West 54th Street, on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for an all-day communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. There will be childcare, snacks, multiple trainings and panel discussions. People of all gender identities and expressions welcomed and encouraged to attend.

This year’s edit-a-thon kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with a conversation about information activism with writer Joanne McNeil and Data & Society Research Institute Fellow Zara Rahman, moderated by Kimberly Drew, the social media manager for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, creator of the Tumblr “Black Contemporary Art,” and the person behind @museummammy on Instagram. Afternoon breakout groups will engage in focused discussions about related issues, including intersectionality and librarianship, power structures in notability guidelines on Wikipedia, and radical archives. --Pharos (talk) 18:46, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:13, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Fashion Institute of Technology - Mini-Conference[edit]

Jason -

This is Helen Lane, the Emerging Technologies Librarian at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I am reaching out to you because Richard suggested that you might be open to speaking to other faculty about your experiences teaching with Wikipedia at LaGuardia Community College.

I am trying to find local college faculty with experience to lead a breakout session on the topic at our annual Adjunct Summer Institute on May 30th. Would you be interested? Librarianhelen (talk) 17:08, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
