I engaged in Wikipedia as a project to determine its appropriateness for student research. It's time to end the project. I'm impressed with many of the editors here, especially the film team (Erik, Alientraveller, Yllosubmarine, Stetsonharry, BIGNOLE, and many others) and others such as Daniel Case. My goal was to see in what ways WP could be used by students and teachers in furthering learning. I have no problem letting my students use WP with the usual caveats (a starting point for research), but, unfortunately, I am no longer in a position in which I can promote it as a good tool to colleagues. Some may find enjoyment in what passes for average "discourse" and "discussion" in the WP community; I no longer can.

Thanks for the experience.

A Canticle for Leibowitz[edit]

Hi, Jim, sorry to see you've left the building. I wanted to talk to you about A Canticle for Leibowitz and whether you had plans to take it to FAC. Viriditas (talk) 21:07, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Viriditas suggested I talk with you about submitting it to peer review en route to FAC. I looked at some relevant featured articles and made a suggestion to Talk:A_Canticle_for_Leibowitz#Characters, but my bg is sci/engg, not literature, so I hope you and Viriditas will tell me what to do. Sharktopustalk 20:17, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Jim, see also: Wikipedia:Peer review/A Canticle for Leibowitz/archive1. Please add any items you would like feedback on in the review. I'm trying to find a volunteer (or two) to review it. Viriditas (talk) 09:31, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
