History of Medicine editathon[edit]

Hello again, MaryHutchison!
Apologies for taking so long to get back to you after last week but am just recovering from the flu. Thank you so much for taking part in the History of Medicine editathon and for doing SO MUCH since (creating new articles, taking & uploading much-needed photographs etc. etc.) Just so you know, we uploaded in excess of 500 images to Wiki Commons, created 4 brand new articles on Wikipedia, and improved a further 56! For the event page, click here or to see the whole illustrated story of the event then you can click here: Storify: ILW editathon 2016
I hope that you enjoyed the day, and that we'll see you on Wiki again soon.

Now that you've learned - or refreshed - the basics of editing using Wikipedia’s Visual Editor, I hope that you'll stay logged in and edit or create more articles. I've added some booklets and some links below that you may find useful.


Thanks Stinglehammer, all!

It was a pleasure to help, and I hope to contribute more in the future. I have experience of working with Wikis and am comfortable with markup, but have much to learn otherwise.

I will be sure to get in touch if I need to! MaryHutchison (talk)


If you're not feeling bold enough to write an (other) article straight away, why not try a small edit first, or adding a link? Don't worry about being perfect, Wiki is a constantly evolving entity. Fortunately there's a whole team of editors just like you who can help.

You can't break Wikipedia, but in case you're still nervous here are some pages that you might find helpful, especially the first one which covers the main things to remember about using Visual Editor.


The next up-and-coming Wikipedia event is this one run by Sara Thomas, Wikimedian in Residence at Museums and Galleries Scotland. Details here: Modern Scottish Women 2 - Art & Feminism

The University of Edinburgh are also looking into running an editathon for International Women’s Day on (or near) 8th March 2016 – details are still to be confirmed but will be updated on my project page here: Wikipedia:University_of_Edinburgh
I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Remember, if you are writing on a talk page, please sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there. See you soon! Stinglehammer (talk) 00:42, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

International Women's Day editathon[edit]

Hello again, MaryHutchison!
Thank you so much for taking part in the IWD 2016 editathon. Just so you know, out of the 45 artists exhibited in the Modern Scottish Women exhibition, thanks to your efforts, only two are left without Wiki pages. And being a completionist like Sara and I, I can see that you already one step ahead of me by working on one of them! Kudos! Hopefully, we'll get them all finished between us very shortly. For the event page, if you need the link click [IWD2016 editathon].
I hope that you enjoyed the day - even if it was enjoyed from afar - and that we'll see you on Wiki again soon.

Details for future events are still to be confirmed but will be updated on my project page here: Wikipedia:University_of_Edinburgh| University of Edinburgh WikiProject or on my colleague Sara Thomas's page [Museum & Galleries Scotland Wikiproject] or we can also notify you through the Scots Wiki mailing list (above) if you haven't already signed up to that. You can also contribute to Wikipedia by checking out the opportunities at the Community Portal (link above) or the Women in Red project will be running for the rest of March. if you would like to contribute to the Women in Red project then check out the page here: [Women in Red Wikiproject] Cheers!

Ways to improve Ilene Erskine[edit]

Hi, I'm Vexations. MaryHutchison, thanks for creating Ilene Erskine!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Please see WP:ARTIST

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Proposed deletion of File:Still life with cat.jpg[edit]

Notice

The file File:Still life with cat.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-free image of art work being used in a decorative manner in the article about the painter. While non-free images of artwork are allowed ot be uploaded when they are used for primary indetification purposes in a stand-alone article about the work itself, the use in other article tends to require a much stronger justification for non-free us The work in question is not itself subject of any sourced critical commentary in Ilene Erskine (it's not even mentioned by name anywhere outside of the file's caption) and is not being used to support sourced critical commentary about the particular style or technique used by the artist to paint it; therefore, the context for non-free use required by WP:NFCC#8 is completely lacking.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:47, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

The above also applies to File:Little horse.jpg and File:Jasmine's Chair.jpg. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:48, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
