Wikipedia Science Conference[edit]

Hello Melissa, You're receiving this update because you asked to be informed about the Wikipedia Science Conference taking place in London on 2nd and 3rd of September. Thanks for your interest.

The call for proposals is now public and session proposals are coming in. The two keynotes, and some other invited speakers (including yourself), have graciously accepted. In mid-May we will bring together a programme, a publicity poster, and an online booking form. Then we'll begin the main publicity and will need your help getting the word out.

I know what you'll be talking about, but please put in a session proposal: the deadline is the 8th May. This is far from the only way to be involved. The conference will need session moderators, a programme review group, and other volunteers: if there is a specific role you are interested in, or if you have any other questions, please email me at m.l.poulter@bristol.ac.uk.

There will be a large "unconference" session in the programme and - fingers crossed - a "hackathon" event two days later on the Saturday, so even if you do not have a proposal accepted, you will have a chance to shape the conference activities.

Please pass on the word to any colleagues who might want to put in a proposal or help the conference in any way. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 12:23, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Melissa and thanks for the excellent proposal. I hope you'll be able to attend the whole conference but for the sake of travel, I will put you in the programme early on the second day. Before I finalise the programme, I need to consult other conference organisers and proposers but I hope before long to issue a draft programme. Cheers, MartinPoulter (talk) 15:15, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:04, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

History of Medicine editathon[edit]

Hello again, Melissa Highton!
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 hosting, guest speaking & taking part in the History of Medicine editathon. 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.

Here is a link to a User Guide which covers the main things to remember about using Visual Editor.

See you soon! Ewan / Stinglehammer (talk) 01:58, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Anne Finlay, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Eric Robertson. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Wikimedians in residence[edit]

Hello, I have noticed your contribution to Wikipedian in residence. Are you personally possibly that Wikimedian in residence at the University of Edinburgh? (for the university as a whole, not just the university library, I mean) If so, I would be interested in getting in touch and sharing experience, having been myself a Wikipedian in residence at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, since February 2015. I do not know about other universities which maintain such a position today, at least in Europe. --Blahma (talk) 21:33, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Anne Finlay[edit]

Thanks for creating the article on Anne Finlay, who was my great-aunt. My siblings and I were excited to see Dorothy Johnston's portrait of her as the front cover image for the catalogue of the Modern Scottish Women (presumably this is not usable in the article). Just for your interest, some extra non-reliable information about her: she was the second child of Ninian Finlay (her older sister, b. 1896, was my maternal grandmother, and there were two younger boys), and always known in the family as "Anno". She left her house in Sheen Road, Richmond to my mother, and after Anno's death (from breast cancer) we lived there from 1964, as later did my sister and her family; my sister still owns a number of her paintings, as well as some furniture etc, and some works by Connard, Ernest Proctor and Dorothy Johnston). She originally wanted to study at the Royal College of Music (I still have the piano she would have used), but her parents would not allow this, so she went to the Edinburgh School of Art instead.

Contacting Editors from the Ada Lovelace Editathons[edit]

Dear Melissa,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your talk page. I’m a new Editor to Wikipedia, part of a small research team based at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I’m getting in touch as we’re trying to contact all the Editors who were involved in the Ada Lovelace Editathons in Oxford or London. If you have been, or still are, involved in editing, whatever the scale of your involvement, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about your experiences. In the first instance, we’ve set up a short (10 minute) survey, which you can access via my User Talk Pages. If you are interested in helping with our research project, please can you drop me a line?

Thanks, --RuthPage (talk) 16:14, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply and for completing the survey. I very much appreciate your help.

Cram101[edit]

Hi Melissa, you added a source to Block cipher for #1lib1ref, but unfortunately Cram101 is not reliable and I removed it. They copy info from Wikipedia and paraphrase it. The info it cited is also cited with another reference; could you check if that reference supports what it cites or whether another source is needed? More on "books" like Cram101 is in WP:PUS.
