Norwegian women architects[edit]

Should Category:Norwegian women architects be shown as {{WikiProject Women artists|class=stub}} or not? I deleted one such tag, but now I am uncertain.

See you on Saturday.--Dthomsen8 (talk) 02:47, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

  • Hello @Dthomsen8:, I see on the talk page for the category that there is a note "This category does not require a rating on the project's quality scale." so I think you are quite right. See you at the WikiSalon! Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 20:18, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
    • Good answer to a poor question, Mary. I will try again. Are "women architects" also "women artists" in general, or not. Of course, some architects are skilled portrait painters or book illustrators, but in general, that is not the case.--Dthomsen8 (talk) 02:06, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

White House (Herm)[edit]

The White House (Herm) is good for several questions. If I remove the brackets from Fiona Duncan, is that a grave offence, or not?

  • I think it's perfectly reasonable to remove the brackets.

Even though it is very short, can I leave it as class=start?

  • I would tend to leave it as it is rather than change it.

If not, and I think not, since 112 words is a stub, can I remove {{UK-hotel-struct-stub}}? Herm is in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, and not in the United Kingdom, what should the stub be?

  • @Dthomsen8: Taking a look at Category:Guernsey stubs I suspect a more appropriate template would be {{Guernsey-geo-stub}}? I would tend to add that even if the class=start is left in place, on the theory that it will help interested editors to find the page. There doesn't seem to be any direct parallel for the hotel stub. All the best, Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 12:59, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

Event coordinator[edit]

Hi, the English Wikipedia recently created a new user permission for editors involved in off-wiki outreach work, event coordinator. This new permission allows users to mark accounts for confirmed for up to 10 days, and also allows them to create accounts for events without rate limits without some of the features of the account creator right that aren't used at edit-a-thons and other events. I have added the event coordinator permission to your account and removed the account creator permission, as you appear to have been using it mainly for outreach work.

This should have no noticeable impact on your ability to create accounts, and will give you the extra ability to temporarily confirm accounts if you need to. For more in formation, you can see the information page on the right, or you can ask me if you have any questions. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:41, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Help for the careless AOL EMAIL USER.[edit]

Dear Mary Mark,

I am back in London from Jersey, and I have use of Wikipedia here, blocked in Jersey.

Your help is needed in Philadelphia for me to get AOL access. Forgot password means I need someone in my house to use davidcthomsen@verizon.net, and say forgot my password. They will respond with a number, and ring my phone. When it rings, then answer and put in the number. Then AOL asks for a new Password. Answer "Parrish2328" and I can use that password here.

My friend Harvey Welker at 215-978-4364 can help by calling Tom Cavanaugh on Judson Street, who has a key and can reset my password on my computer, or else look at my password by logging in and finding it on OPTIONS through in FIREFOX. If not clear, respond right here.

David

Call Tom at 215-341-4871, skip Harvey. Annie has that number. --Dthomsen8 (talk) 12:00, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
MMO, I've done a significant part of this without result. Hands off for me from here on, but let me know if I can help you. Smallbones(smalltalk) 20:58, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry Dave, but I've tried to contact these people and haven't had any luck. Mary Mark Ockerbloom (talk) 13:50, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
