Talk to me, Andy Mabbett[edit]

  • If you post a message on this page, I'll reply on this page to avoid fragmenting the discussion.
  • If I've left you a message on your talk page, I will be watching it, so please reply there rather than here (but do feel free to drop a copy of {{Talkback}} here).
  • If appropriate, I will move discussion from here to the relevant article's talk page, so that anyone interested can join in.
  • If you want to start a new discussion thread, please start it at the bottom of the page. Better still, use the "new section" tab next to the "edit this page" tab, or the link at the foot of this section, either of which will do that automatically.
  • Please do not make links from within section headings.
  • Inaccessible HTML (coloured text, "small" tags, etc.) will be removed from this page on sight.
  • Please sign and date your entries by inserting four tildes (~~~~) at the end.
  • Start a new discussion.

Editorial[edit]

This newsletter starts with the motto "common endeavour for 21st century content". To unpack that slogan somewhat, we are particularly interested in the new, post-Wikidata collection of techniques that are flourishing under the Wikimedia collaborative umbrella. To linked data, SPARQL queries and WikiCite, add gamified participation, text mining and new holding areas, with bots, tech and humans working harmoniously.

Scientists, librarians and Wikimedians are coming together and providing a more unified view of an emerging area. Further integration of both its community and its technical aspects can be anticipated.

While Wikipedia will remain the discursive heart of Wikimedia, data-rich and semantic content will support it. We'll aim to be both broad and selective in our coverage. This publication Facto Post (the very opposite of retroactive) and call to action are brought to you monthly by ContentMine.

Template for Find a grave[edit]

Hi Pigsonthewing, IMHO, the Template for Find a grave section on unreliable should include a write up. Some users are deleting Find a Grave ref and External links from wikipedia article... See my talk. Need your opinion. I think Find a grave is a reliable source but subject to use with a slight risk. My request is not have the 'removal' part on the template page.

Many thanks[edit]

Dear Pigsonthewing, Many thanks indeed for starting the article on Osmund Reynolds - I see you have done a lot of work on it. It is good to know that some articles suggested at Wikipedia: Requested Articles get answered! Once again, thanks for creation of this page, it is appreciated.
