Things to take a look at and take care of[edit]

  • Nanobright (talk) 23:16, 13 May 2019 (UTC) Hi @Victuallers: and @Hellknowz:, Would it be possible to highlight good article nominee Adriana Briscoe on front page of Women in Red project, GAN Article Alert section? I have just finished expanding her article from start to GAN (assessment via ORES script quality assessment). thanks! alexandra
Hey! The report is automated, and there's no way to tell the bot to "highlight" any particular entry. The entry will appear on the list during the daily update. It will be bolded for the duration of that report. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 07:35, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

Women in Red[edit]

Hi there, Nanobright, and welcome to Women in Red. If you want to gain experience in editing, I recommend you embark on the Wikipedia Adventure. It will guide you through in easy steps. Once you feel ready to create biographies, you should look through our Ten Simple Rules. Please let me know if you run into any difficulties or need assistance. Happy editing!--Ipigott (talk) 09:24, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Nanobright (talk) 01:46, 28 March 2019 (UTC) following the feedback from the WikiEdu class, I've updated the articles I've been working on w/the ORES predicted rating. one of the articles has a G.A. predicted do I go about that within the project?
I've just noticed this message today as you appear to have re-registered. In future, if you want someone to respond, you should ping them, for instance by including {{u|username}} in your message. Unfortunately, ORES tends to be over-optimistic on rating articles GA or FA. In most cases, in the English version of Wikipedia, a rating of B would be more appropriate. ORES is usually pretty reliable for Start, C and B. I'm really happy to see how many new biographies you have been creating. You'll see I've made a few additions on authority control, defaultsort and categories. If you use a WIR template on the talk page, you should add your article to the appropriate WIR list. I've included the recent ones on Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red/Meetup/108. As for GA, there is a formal process of review. You can find further information on Wikipedia:Good articles. We also have a wikiproject Women in Green which is specifically devoted to promoting articles to GA status. A recent GA success was Aletta Jacobs. You can find a record of the review on the article's source page. If you are interested in promoting any particular article to GA, it may be useful to let us know beforehand as we may be able to help you along.

@Ipigott: thank you for getting back to me! I have a couple more weeks left of my WikiEdu scientists and scholars class but once that's wrapped up and I am no longer using the WikiEdu dashboard I'm looking forward to be involved more with the project and will use the WiR project template for new articles. Leaving the class I'm considering working mostly on upgrading existing articles and it's great to see that the women in green project exists + I've added myself to that list. As you mention, it doesn't appear that the good article status is always evaluated correctly by ORES. But either way I think it'll be a benefit to improve some of the articles I've stumbled across so far. By the way, I've seen the category + authority notifications come up but I'm not 100% sure what they mean. To double check...when that happens there is no action I should be taking correct? thanks again! Nanobright (talk) 16:57, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Glad to hear you will be continuing to edit after you complete your course. I would recommend you add authority control to all your biographies as it automatically provides information on the name and publications related to the person in question from any available library based sources. You will see it has already worked for Sandra J. Rosenthal and Laura Eisenstein. As information on the others is updated, it will sooner or later no doubt also work for them. As for the categories, they serve many useful purposes. Many users search for people in a given profession by country, university, time period, etc., while it is often interesting to know how well women are represented in a given field. Just click on some of the categories and you'll get a better feel of the kind of information they provide. If possible, you should try to add categories on the years of birth and death, living person (if applicable) and the main occupation.--Ipigott (talk) 06:58, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ipigott: sounds great, thank you! I've added the authority control to my quick list of templates I use when working on articles. I had not realized we should add the DOB for living persons (I was actually removing it under privacy concerns...oops!). my new articles have been added to the WIR redlist manually...a bit clunky but hopefully that's resolved for the time being. by the way, in case my edits are popping up on your watchlist, my plan for the rest of the course is improving Lily Jan and Eve Marder and wrapping up my new article on Sandra J. Rosenthal. after that thinking about basing article improvements off of bios in the Women in Science Timeline but still deciding + happy to help wherever needed in the project. To explain, so far I've tried to only work on biographies somehow related to my area of research since that's where it feels like I can help out the most and has just generally felt more natural for the writing aspects.

Hi Nanobright,

Many thanks for giving my name to Heini. I've found her on Twitter but haven't reached out yet. So far behind on so many things... :) I'm flying this afternoon, although I suppose I can get WiFi and appear that way. An amazing world. All best, WritingMan (talk) 14:17, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
