Hello KSRolph,

Do you by any chance have any links to some of your work done throughout Latin America? Also, have you worked within Amazonia?

Regards, FillTheGap


Dear Drmies,

Bgg2 is studying Wikipedia authorship and editing; our ambassadors have been advised, and the deletions and detail of how this affects the user, interaction with Drmies, etc. is useful for learning. Please permit Bgg2 to edit again. I will oversee his contributions. Thank you kindly. Really great to know there are gate keepers too, by the way! KSRolph (talk) 19:05, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

  • KSRolph, if you're using Wikipedia for class assignments, there are a few helpful things you can do. Have a look at Wikipedia:School and university projects. It has some useful advice, first of all, and a list where you can add your project. One helpful thing you (and your students) can do is place a template on the talk page of an article if they are actively working on it (that is, if they're doing more than make one or two small edits): see Template:Educational assignment. For practical purposes, having a list of students somewhere in your user space (maybe on a dedicated space like this one, User:KSRolph/class list) is also a good idea, for yourself and for other editors, maybe with a link from your talk page to that list. Let me know if I can help. Thanks, and good luck, Drmies (talk) 19:43, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Professor,

I'm planning to make edits on the following wikipedia pages- "Tigrinya language", 'African immigrants to Italy", "Eritrean Refugees" "Tigrinya verbs" and create my own page about Eritrean immigrants. These will be the four edits and one new page i want to work on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wisdomize (talkcontribs) 04:42, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Pr. Rolph,

I really like the idea of a class list page. It might be a good space for us to get together and talk about our projects and coordinate group activities. Also, as the space is in Wikipedia, it might help everyone get used to wiki technology. Colorfulsocks (talk) 20:35, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Face-smile.svgWelcome KSRolph!

Now that you've joined Wikipedia, there are 25,805,112 users!
Hello, KSRolph. Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions! I'm AnomieBOT, one of the other editors here, and I hope you decide to stay and help contribute to this amazing repository of knowledge. Factchecker_atyourservice

If you need further help, you can:
Nuvola apps filetypes.svg   Ask a question
or even:
Presa de decissions.png   Ask an experienced editor to "adopt" you

Alternatively, leave me a message at my talk page or type {{helpme}} here on your talk page, and someone will try to help.

There are many ways you can contribute to Wikipedia. Here are a few ideas:
Police man update.svg   Fight vandalism
Vista-Login Manager.png   Be a WikiFairy or a WikiGnome
Crystal package settings.png   Help contribute to articles
Vista-advancedsettings.png   Perform maintenance tasks
Vista-messenger.png   Become a member of a project that interests you
Curly Brackets.svg   Help design new templates

Remember to always sign your posts on talk pages. You can do this either by clicking on the Insert-signature.png button on the edit toolbar or by typing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post. This will automatically insert your signature, a link to this (your talk) page, and a timestamp.

The best way to learn about something is to experience it. Explore, learn, contribute, and don't forget to have some fun!
To get some practice editing you can use a sandbox. You can create your own private sandbox for use any time. Perfect for working on bigger projects. Then for easy access in the future, you can put {{My sandbox}} on your userpage.

Sincerely, AnomieBOT 20:58, 12 December 2011 (UTC)   (Leave me a message)

Please also note you can't cite yourself as a source on Wikipedia as you did at the article on Occupy Wall Street. Please familiarize yourself with basic WP policy, and encourage your students to do the same, before editing. Centrify (f / k / a FCAYS) (talk) (contribs) 19:53, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Occupy Hand Signals[edit]

KSRolph. Thank you for your support. I created Occupy hand signals and additions of photos or videos would be appreciated.

On a related note, I see you've bumped into some issues related to copyvio and self referencing. Welcome to the club. We all go through it. If you want to vet anything before dropping it into an article, feel free to drop me a note on my talk page.--Nowa (talk) 13:07, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Bring: Your laptop and charger (we'll have some extra computers available), your questions, and your friends!

What to expect: A fun, laid-back environment with food, drink, a great mix of people, and a wealth of knowledge and resources.

Public transport: BART to Montgomery station and walk 1 block down New Montgomery St.

Reminder: The St. Patricks Day parade will be starting at 11:30 on Market Street. Market street will most likely be closed to cars so please plan your journey accordingly ;-)

When you arrive: A volunteer will be at the front of the building to greet everyone arriving 12:40 - 1:20. You will take the elevator up to the 6th floor.

If you are early: If you expect to come earlier than 12:40 to help set-up, please let us know, so we can give you a contact number.

If you arrive later: No problem. There will be a phone number posted to the front door of the office building. A volunteer will run down and let you in.

We can't wait to see you on Saturday! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 23:29, 15 March 2012 (UTC)


Hello, I am sending this message to editors who signed up for the Women's History Month Edit-a-thon. Please help spread the word. HighBeam Research--an online, pay-for-use search engine for newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias has agreed to give free, full-access, 1-year accounts for up to 1000 Wikipedia editors to use. HighBeam has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications, most of which are not available for free elsewhere on the internet. Aside from a free 7-day trial (credit card required), access to HighBeam would cost $30 per month or $200 per year for the first year and $300 for subsequent years, so this is a wonderful, free, no-strings-attached opportunity. To qualify, editors must have at least a 1 year-old account with 1000 edits. Please add your name to the WP:HighBeam/Applications account sign-up page if you are interested. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 18:36, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Your class accounts[edit]

Hi. I'd like to apologise to you first of all for the trouble you went through with your class accounts getting blocked - I have to own up, because I'm the one who started that ball rolling. There is a limit per IP address, of 5 accounts per day - and when I started seeing multiple accounts getting made within hours of each other, all starting with "17", I figured something was up, and (I know now, wrongly) smelling trouble, I made a report to our team who investigate sockpuppetry on here.

Obviously now, I know better, and realise your accounts weren't sockpuppets, but it would be a great idea in future to leave a note on the Administrator's noticeboard so that admins are aware what you're doing, and we can then prevent this from happening again! Thank you, and sorry.  BarkingFish  23:38, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

The Wikimedia Foundation is partnering up with the Noun Project to run the first-ever Wikipedia Iconathon on April 6th at WMF headquarters, and you're invited!

What is an Iconathon: An iconathon is a co-design process where Wikimedia staff, the user community, and a few graphic designers collaboratively discuss what symbols could best represent a concept for an icon – for example, what's the best icon for New Editor, Revert or Oversight? Sketches will be converted into high fidelity icons by Noun Project graphic designers, and will be released under a free license for use by anyone on the Internet. Help build the free encyclopedia icon set that anyone in the world can share and reuse!

Logistics: The event runs from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm on April 6th at the Wikimedia Foundation office in San Francisco. Follow the signs at the door! We'll have plenty of paper and pens/pencils for sketching.

How to sign up: Please register here using the code 'wiki'

The Edit-a-thon will occur in parallel with Litquake, the San Francisco Bay Area's annual literature festival. Writers from all over the Bay Area and the world will be in town during the nine day festival, so the timing is just right for us to meetup and create/translate/expand/improve articles about literature and writers. All levels of Wikipedia editing experience are welcome. This event will include new editor training. RSVP →here←. --Rosiestep (talk) 03:01, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

8 March San Francisco International Womens Day edit-a-thon.jpg

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

In celebration of WikiWomen's History Month, the SF Bay Area Wikipedia community has two events in early March -- please consider attending!

First, we have an ArtAndFeminism edit-a-thon, which will take place at the Kadist Art Foundation from 12 noon to 6pm on Saturday, March 7. We'll be one of many sites worldwide participating in this edit-a-thon on March 7th. So join us as we help improve Wikipedia's coverage of women artists and their works!

Second, we will be celebrating International Women's Day with the International Women's Day edit-a-thon on Sunday, March 8 from 1pm to 5pm at the Wikimedia Foundation. Our editing focus will be on women, of course!

I hope to see you there! Rosiestep (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:06, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
