Season's Greetings[edit]

CMR Xmas greeting.jpg
Wishing you a Charlie Brown
Charlie Russell Christmas! 馃巹
Best wishes for your Christmas
Is all you get from me
'Cause I ain't no Santa Claus
Don't own no Christmas tree.
But if wishes was health and money
I'd fill your buck-skin poke
Your doctor would go hungry
An' you never would be broke."
鈥擟.M. Russell, Christmas greeting 1914.


Be able to define your WikiProject's scope within the WikiProject itself by listing relevant pages and categories, eliminating the need to tag every talk page with a banner. (You will still be allowed to do that, of course. It just won't be required.) you got a link, or something or this particular part of things.  ?? JarrahTree 10:41, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

JarrahTree, I don't really have anything to link to at this point, since it's an idea we're working on. Once we have something more concrete to show off I would be happy to link to it. Do you have any thoughts or feedback on the idea? Harej (talk) 00:47, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
idea we're working on is a bit nebulous. I have a very large mount of thoughts on the matter, where is the best place to dump? JarrahTree 10:36, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I imagine it does sound nebulous; we're just starting work on this. Wikipedia talk:WikiProject X would be a good place so that others may chime in as well. Harej (talk) 21:52, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, there are quite a few 'components' to the whole of project tagging (as I call it at least), will think about it first. JarrahTree 09:07, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Dear Harej Sorry for taking so long to get to you. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with studying Chinese all day, working all night, to say nothing of all this business about working out. But thank you so much for inviting to join the project on Hampshire. I am very honored and much appreciated your kind invitation. Thank you for your kindness and please have a wonderful day! --A.S. Brown (talk) 21:43, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, A.S. Brown! Let me know what you think of the WikiProject and if there is anything I can do to help. Harej (talk) 01:35, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your kind offer. I have a book that I think would be of some issue to the project, but I owned way too many books, a veritable private library if you will (my landlord hates me for that) and I can't seem to find it. I believe that this project is a great effort on the part of all, and I am must pleased to join in. I am something of a hopeless Anglophile, but it is nice to write something other war for a change. Looking forward to getting started, if just find that damned book :). Please have a great day!--A.S. Brown (talk) 11:55, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Women in Red[edit]

James, can you please let me know when your team will move Wikipedia:WikiProject Women/Women in Red to Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, or tell me that you don't have time for it? No worries if you're busy with other things, but please let me know either way. Thank you. (cc @Ipigott, Megalibrarygirl, and SusunW) --Rosiestep (talk) 17:09, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Rosiestep, sorry if you had pinged me earlier and I somehow didn't get it. I will get back to you on this soon. Thankfully this rename should go more smoothly since (a) I removed a lot of hardcoded references to the WikiProject name and (b) we know everything that needs to get done. I also would like to talk to you at some point about our planned extension to the software that will make everything run so much more smoothly. Harej (talk) 01:38, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi James, thanks for your response; that all seems fine. I'm available via Skype most evenings or perhaps on the weekend. --Rosiestep (talk) 03:02, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
And I'm glad to hear we're finally once more going to have a WikiProject in its own right. James, is there any chance of making the change before our next editathon begins on 1 February? It would help to avoid further confusion.-- Ipigott (talk) 16:21, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
It can certainly be done before February 1. I will post to Women in Red's talk page once I'm doing it. Harej (talk) 21:58, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

RSS feeds[edit]

Hi Harej! I thought you might know how to do this (if it's possible). Can we embed this RSS feed for the NY Times Obituary somewhere on a Wiki page? Rosiestep and I were wondering if it was possible. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 19:23, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Megalibrarygirl, not as far as I know. Aside from the lack of technical functionality on Wikipedia to do so, I don't think Wikipedians would appreciate a copyrighted RSS stream on-wiki. Harej (talk) 02:27, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
We were thinking that we could use it to generate redlists or improve references. But I understand about the copyright issue... would it be a problem if it was on a WikiProject page for support of writing articles? Megalibrarygirl (talk) 19:13, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

MediaWiki Barnstar.png Thank You Barnstar
Thank you, James, for all your technical expertise at Women in Red, including your latest work moving WiR back to its own WikiProject. Didn't realize months ago it would be double work for you, but want you to know you are appreciated and recognized by our membership. Rosiestep (talk) 19:26, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, Rosiestep. I am happy to do whatever I can to help this exciting and highly productive project. Harej (talk) 20:04, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
