Welcome to the WikiProject Firearms. I hope you enjoy being a member.--LWF 03:36, 18 March 2007 (UTC)
Last push for the Biography Assessment Drive
We've done great work so far on the WikiProject Biography Spring 2007 Assessment Drive, reducing the 135,345 backlog by 38,626 to 96,719 as of March 20, 2007. We have only 6,720 more to go to get below 90,000. That would be outstanding and any extra effort that you can offer in these last few days of the drive (which ends March 24, 2007) would be much appreciated. If you haven't already, you may want to load Outriggr's assessment script in your monobook.js. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them on my talk page. -- Jreferee 23:16, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Jirt, thanks for the note. It was not really vandalism, it was just a rather clumsy edit. The removal of the -1- in the name is valid - in ring compounds like menthol the -1- is redundant and is normally omitted. I spotted a couple of things that needed cleaning anyway, so thanks. Actually I have some students doing a poster for next week on menthol, so it was worth checking! Thanks, Walkerma 04:47, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Infobox Drive for the Firearms Wikiproject
Hello Jirt. The Firearms Wikiproject is having an infobox drive. The purpose of this is to ensure that most (if not all) of the articles within our scope have the relevant infoboxes. The start date will be May 28th. If you choose to participate, go to our project page and pick an article under the To-do list's Infobox section or look for firearm articles that need an infobox. Before you start editing an article, please cross it out on the list so that we don't have editor's work clashing. The drive will last for five days. If you are interested, please RSVP to LWF. Thank you, the Firearms Wikiproject. --Seed 2.0 09:19, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
WikiProject Biography Summer 2007 Assessment Drive
Hi there. In the future, would you please follow the standard format for vandalism reports at WP:AIV? If it's formatted badly, the helperbots don't know to automatically remove reports once the account in question is blocked by an admin, so I just had to remove User:Liamay manually. It's just a little thing, but please keep it in mind in the future. Thanks, Nihiltres( ) 15:20, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for contacting me. I agree that putting the link in Jingoism is probably unnecessary, but Pakistan Studies is clearly an example of an insidious and propagandistic discipline sanctioned by the state that preaches intolerance towards minorities on the basis of religion and perceived ethnicity (as I can see by reading the references). There are many examples of such articles on other nationalist and ethnocentric ideologies that are extensively referenced on other articles on wikipedia, so I fail to see why special treatment should be awarded to this one. Since Jingoism is a generic phenomenon linking to pakistan studies is probably inappropriate, but this is clearly a highly notable example of state sanctioned religious intolerance propagated in the west by "scholars" (unlike religious intolerance from other Islamic countries, which are of a populist nature). As for Chauvinism, well, maybe you're right about that too. Chauvinism is, again, a generic phenomenon, and not specific to Pakistan Studies. So how about we settle for middle ground? Remove from Jingoism and Chauvinism, but keep in Religious intolerance?The Hindenberg 16:26, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
Wikimania in Atlanta!
Hi! I noticed your involvement on U.S. South-related articles, categories and WikiProjects, and I wanted to let you know about a bid we're formulating to get next year's Wikimania held in Atlanta! If you would like to help, be sure to sign your name to the "In Atlanta" section of the Southeast team portion of the bid if you're in town, or to the "Outside Atlanta" section if you still want to help but don't live in the city or the suburbs. If you would like to contribute more, please write on my talk page, the talk page of the bid, or join us at the #wikimania-atlanta IRC chat on freenode.org. Have a great day!
P.S. While this is a template for maximum efficiency, I would appreciate a note on my talk page so I know you got the message, and what you think. This is time-sensitive, so your urgent cooperation is appreciated. :) Mike H. I did "That's hot" first! 03:56, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations to our 225 new members
The newsletter is back! Many things have gone on during the past few months, but many things have not. While the assessment drive helped revitalize the assessment department of the project, many other departments have received no attention. Most notably: peer review and our "workgroups". A day long IRC meeting has been planned for October 13th, with the major focus being which areas of the project are "dead", what should our goals be as a project, and how to "revive" the dead areas of our project. Contribute to the discussion on the the new channel (see below)
We decided to deliver this newsletter to all project members this month but only those with their names down here will get it delivered in the future.
This is your newsletter and you can be involved in the creation of the next issue. Any and all contributions are welcome. Simply let yourself be known to any of the undersigned or post news on the next issue's talk page
Lastly, a new WikiProject Biography channel has been set up on the freenode network:
Our thanks to Phoenix 15 for setting it up.
M-1 Carbine Revert War
Your right, we tried to revert the same vandalism. I was a little slow and ended up reverting your correction, sorry! :) - Jirt (talk) 17:49, 24 August 2008 (UTC) nothing happenedBeedox (talk) 17:52, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
