I'd be happy to "adopt" you and answer any questions you have! Calliopejen1 (talk) 22:07, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much! I would really appreciate any help or insight you could provide. How do we get started? Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 02:55, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Is there anything in particular you've had problems with while editing/exploring Wikipedia? Would you like suggestions for where you can help out? If so, what are your areas of interest? (Both in terms of the subject areas you'd like to improve, and--if you have any sense for this--what types of tasks you might want to take on, or skills you have that could be useful...) By the way, if you'd like to make sure I'm notified promptly of your messages on this page, you can use the code {{replyto|Calliopejen1}} which pings me in the notification area at the top of the screen. Calliopejen1 (talk) 20:06, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
@Calliopejen1: I'll be heading to an edit-a-thon this weekend and will develop a better idea of my weaker points. Right now I feel pretty confident in copyediting, and my areas for growth fall under "everything else". :)
Good luck at the edit-a-thon! If you're looking for articles to copyedit, they can be found here (general category) or here (special requests). If you want to avoid seeing code while you are copyediting, you can try out the visual editor by enabling it in your settings (scroll down, check, and save -- you may also have to purge your browser if you don't see the "edit beta" tab). The visual editor is in beta, so just double-check that it hasn't done anything crazy to the page after you save edits made using the visual editor mode. Or you can just edit in the normal fashion, without the visual editor -- here is a useful cheatsheet to code you're likely to see/use. Calliopejen1 (talk) 20:26, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Peggy Shaw[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Peggy Shaw has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. G S Palmer (talk) 19:09, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

@G S Palmer:I had a moment of panic then realized this is a 7-day warning. Phew! Thank you so much! Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 19:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Hi Rachel. I saw your message on my talk page: don't worry about it, proposed deletion isn't instant, like speedy deletion. You have a week before it might get deleted, and if you add sources you can remove the template from the page right away. No rush!
By the way, you said you "could not figure out how to "@" [me] to get [my] attention". I believe what you're looking for is Template:Reply to, produced by {{reply to|G S Palmer}}, which renders as @G S Palmer:. Hope that helps! G S Palmer (talk) 19:28, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
Never mind the above. I see you already got it figured out while I was typing. G S Palmer (talk) 19:29, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Back at you![edit]

It was such a pleasure to work with you at WikiCon - I'm looking forward to reading your final version of the Peggy Shaw article. You should consider nominating it for a Did You Know? front page article when you've finished.

Keep in touch, and keep being bold! Levendowski(talk) — Preceding undated comment added 00:51, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation and such.[edit]

Hello, Rachel! Everything you ever wanted to know about disambiguation can be found at WP:DPL. We have a monthly contest where the most linked-to disambiguation pages are listed, and editors vie for a place in the Hall of Fame by fixing as many as we can from the list. We do have other lists - lots and lots of lists. There are some editors who know how to make lists of links meeting certain conditions, for example R'n'B's lists of disambiguation links on pages where the title includes the disambiguation term. Also, download WP:AWB, you can do all sorts of things with that. Cheers! bd2412 T 23:18, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi BD2412, thank you so much for this information! I'll take a spin around this and see what I can do :) --Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 03:16, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
I'll be around if you need anything. bd2412 T 03:57, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

I have picked out a disambiguation fix to get you started, so you can see how the process works. The article is Shereefa Lloyd, an Olympic sprinter. One link very early on this page points to a disambiguation page rather than the correct target article. Your mission: find that link, and fix it! The fix, in this case, is straightforward. You need only go to the disambiguation page, find the right target article there, and make it so that the errant link in the article points to that target article. bd2412 T 01:35, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

I tried it, BD2412 Did I do it right? :D --Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 17:39, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Exactly right. There are a number of more complex disambiguation scenarios that you will run into eventually - for example, someone may write in an article that the subject was "born in Clarendon Park" without giving any indication which Clarendon Park is intended (in which case some research would be needed), or they may refer to a notable "Clarendon Park" that is missing from Wikipedia (in which case a red link should be created pointing to what would be the correct title), or they may refer to a non-notable "Clarendon Park" (in which case the term should be unlinked). For example, last month I fixed a number of links to Stacey Johnson and found that some were intended for an Olympic fencer with no article; I therefore created Draft:Stacey Johnson (fencer), which I (or someone) will eventually get into article shape and move from draft space to the mainspace. You will also occasionally run into messes like Fish stew, which up until this morning was tagged as a disambiguation page (clearly it's just a list of kinds of fish stew, which is its own topic).
I see that you used Visual Editor to make the edit - it turns out to be good for this kind of work where the correct link is an expanded form of the incorrect link. I would like to show you the dabsolver, just so you can see another tool that does this with some additional useful bells and whistles. When you have passed 500 article space edits, you will be eligible to use the AutoWikiBrowser, which is a fantastic tool for making large numbers of common fixes, including disambiguation fixes. You might be able to get authorization to use it earlier based on your WMF role, but it's probably better for you to earn it the usual way. By the way, I must admit that disambiguation is not the most important thing to be done in Wikipedia; I happen to do a lot of it and therefore have an inflated sense of how important it is. However, if you keep at it, you may eventually place in the top three participants in the monthly disambiguation contest, in which case you will win a free Wikimedia t-shirt. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:04, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Squee! Thanks! I did use VE; probably next time I should use Wiki Markup. I hear you on it not being "the most important part" of editing Wikipedias, but I'd like to have a better sense of how it all works so that I feel more informed. I'll take a look at the other links you posted and see if I can help on any of them! :) -Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 20:06, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Actually, let's just throw you in at the deep end. Go to Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links/October 2014, pick a disambiguation page from the list, and fix all of the incoming links to that page. Let me know which one you do. It shouldn't be too bad - most of these have only ten or eleven incoming links, which is much better than the lists from years ago, which had hundreds. In going through a few of these, you are bound to come across the usual assortment of problems. Never fear to be bold in cutting them down! bd2412 T 20:21, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I think I lost the plot, here - the link pages all mostly lead somewhere already, such as with the Guggenheim_Museum. So I tried adding a link to Antisymmetric on the Antisymmetry page (added the third link) - did I get it right? -Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 03:22, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Those both happen to be problematic pages (math dabs are always a headache, Guggenheim is a problem because the link may intentionally refer to multiple museums associated with the same family). Let's start with something more clear-cut - try Northern Pride, which has only three links on the page. Go there and click "What links here" to see what pages are linking to that disambiguation page. Then limit the view to those in article space. Those are pages with a link needing to be fixed. If you go to those pages, you should be able to find a link to "Northern Pride", which needs to be corrected to point to the right Northern Pride. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:56, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I think I got it! Thanks for the extra instruction! I need to turn in for the day but will try another list (I looked at Elizabeth and wasn't sure if it might be a bit of an overwhelming list for me - how do you all know whenthe links have all been fixed? I suppose I'll learn the tools as I get more into it all!) Thank you! -Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 04:55, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Try this - go to Princeton, and click "What links here". Near the top of the page, go to the "Namespace" field and select "(Article)", then click "Go". You can see now that there are many links, but most point to Princeton (disambiguation). These are okay, since that redirect indicates that they are intentionally pointing to the disambiguation page. You can see the two links that are not redirects, and are not in the indented section under Princeton (disambiguation). Go to those pages and fix those links (both easy fixes, 90% of the time when someone links Princeton they intend Princeton University). Once you have fixed them, go refresh the "(Article)" selection on the "What links here" page for Princeton, and you will see that nothing is left that links to it outside of that redirect. A page is done for disambiguation purposes when the only incoming links are redirects and links to the "Foo (disambiguation)" link. bd2412 T 17:11, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I think I finally got it! Let me see if I can go it alone on my next editing try - I'll start with the main list and see if I can self-select and figure it out (finally :D) --Rachel.dicerbo (talk) 21:12, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Excellent. Be aware, however, that there are some easy pages, and some disambig hornets nests. It usually does not take long to figure out when a particular disambig is one or the other of those. Where you come across one, never fear to ask for help on the appropriate Wikiproject (I leave notes for the math people all the time, and for the Catholicism project for the countless "Saint"-something disambiguation pages). Happy hunting! bd2412 T 21:30, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

SF edit-a-thons on March 7 and 8[edit]

ArtAndFeminism (3/7) and International Women's Day (3/8)!
Art-and-feminism.svg
8 March San Francisco International Womens Day edit-a-thon.jpg

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

In celebration of WikiWomen's History Month, the SF Bay Area Wikipedia community has two events in early March -- please consider attending!

First, we have an ArtAndFeminism edit-a-thon, which will take place at the Kadist Art Foundation from 12 noon to 6pm on Saturday, March 7. We'll be one of many sites worldwide participating in this edit-a-thon on March 7th. So join us as we help improve Wikipedia's coverage of women artists and their works!

Second, we will be celebrating International Women's Day with the International Women's Day edit-a-thon on Sunday, March 8 from 1pm to 5pm at the Wikimedia Foundation. Our editing focus will be on women, of course!

I hope to see you there! Rosiestep (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:06, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

To opt out of future mailings about SF meetups, please remove your name from this list.

Tools[edit]

... but in the meantime, here's a kitten for you!

Hi Rachel, Here's a link to some tools which I find helpful: User:Rosiestep/Tools. --Rosiestep (talk) 20:57, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Never followed up on this - thank you so much! I ended up adding an ISBN citation :) --rachel (talk) 17:23, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
It was great meeting you, too, Rachel. Till next time... --Rosiestep (talk) 02:47, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for helping organize that outstanding edit-a-thon yesterday. It was a pleasure meeting you. If you ever need the perspective of an experienced editor, feel free to ask. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 19:52, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Cullen328 - so sorry I missed this message! Thank you so much for attending. I actually would like to put you in touch with the mobile team at the Foundation if that would be OK with you - considering you were editing on mobile I think it would be great to speak with you about your experience! Could I put you in touch with my team member? Cheers, rachel (talk) 20:30, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, and a photo for you[edit]

Women's Wikipedia Edit-a-thon San Francisco 2015

Thanks again. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:05, 10 March 2015 (UTC)


Please feel free to add to Performing arts[edit]

I think music in general or live music, should be added. 98.118.36.105 (talk) 03:34, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the encouragement. I *finally* added a section, but it's tiny so far. -rachel (talk) 04:52, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Editing News #1—2017[edit]

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

VisualEditor
Did you know?

Did you know that you can review your changes visually?

Screenshot showing some changes to an article.  Most changes are highlighted with text formatting.
When you are finished editing the page, type your edit summary and then choose "Review your changes".

In visual mode, you will see additions, removals, new links, and formatting highlighted. Other changes, such as changing the size of an image, are described in notes on the side.

Toggle button showing visual and wikitext options; visual option is selected.

Click the toggle button to switch between visual and wikitext diffs.

Screenshot showing the same changes, in the two-column wikitext diff display.

The wikitext diff is the same diff tool that is used in the wikitext editors and in the page history.

You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor Team has spent most of their time supporting the 2017 wikitext editor mode which is available inside the visual editor as a Beta Feature, and adding the new visual diff tool. Their workboard is available in Phabricator. You can find links to the work finished each week at mw:VisualEditor/Weekly triage meetings. Their current priorities are fixing bugs, supporting the 2017 wikitext editor as a beta feature, and improving the visual diff tool.

Recent changes[edit]

A new wikitext editing mode is available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices. The 2017 wikitext editor has the same toolbar as the visual editor and can use the citoid service and other modern tools. Go to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures to enable the New wikitext mode.

A new visual diff tool is available in VisualEditor's visual mode. You can toggle between wikitext and visual diffs. More features will be added to this later. In the future, this tool may be integrated into other MediaWiki components. [8]

The team have added multi-column support for lists of footnotes. The <references /> block can automatically display long lists of references in columns on wide screens. This makes footnotes easier to read. You can request multi-column support for your wiki. [9]

Other changes:

  • You can now use your web browser's function to switch typing direction in the new wikitext mode. This is particularly helpful for RTL language users like Urdu or Hebrew who have to write JavaScript or CSS. You can use Command+Shift+X or Control+Shift+X to trigger this. [10]
  • The way to switch between the visual editing mode and the wikitext editing mode is now consistent. There is a drop-down menu that shows the two options. This is now the same in desktop and mobile web editing, and inside things that embed editing, such as Flow. [11]
  • The Categories item has been moved to the top of the Page options menu (from clicking on the "hamburger" icon) for quicker access. [12] There is also now a "Templates used on this page" feature there. [13]
  • You can now create <chem> tags (sometimes used as <ce>) for chemical formulas inside the visual editor. [14]
  • Tables can be set as collapsed or un-collapsed. [15]
  • The Special character menu now includes characters for Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics and angle quotation marks (‹› and ⟨⟩) . The team thanks the volunteer developer, Tpt. [16]
  • A bug caused some section edit conflicts to blank the rest of the page. This has been fixed. The team are sorry for the disruption. [17]
  • There is a new keyboard shortcut for citations: Control+Shift+K on a PC, or Command+Shift+K on a Mac. It is based on the keyboard shortcut for making links, which is Control+K on a PC or Command+K on a Mac. [18]

Future changes[edit]

  • The VisualEditor team is working with the Community Tech team on a syntax highlighting tool. It will highlight matching pairs of <ref> tags and other types of wikitext syntax. You will be able to turn it on and off. It will first become available in VisualEditor's built-in wikitext mode, maybe late in 2017. [19]
  • The kind of button used to Show preview, Show changes, and finish an edit will change in all WMF-supported wikitext editors. The new buttons will use OOjs UI. The buttons will be larger, brighter, and easier to read. The labels will remain the same. You can test the new button by editing a page and adding &ooui=1 to the end of the URL, like this: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Sandbox?action=edit&ooui=1 The old appearance will no longer be possible, even with local CSS changes. [20]
  • The outdated 2006 wikitext editor will be removed later this year. It is used by approximately 0.03% of active editors. See a list of editing tools on mediawiki.org if you are uncertain which one you use. [21]

If you aren't reading this in your preferred language, then please help us with translations! Subscribe to the Translators mailing list or contact us directly, so that we can notify you when the next issue is ready. Thank you! User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:19, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Guild of Copy Editors December 2017 News[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors December 2017 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello copy editors! Welcome to the December 2017 GOCE newsletter, which contains nine months(!) of updates. The Guild has been busy and successful; your diligent efforts in 2017 has brought the backlog of articles requiring copy edit to below 1,000 articles for the first time. Thanks to all editors who have contributed their time and energy to help make this happen.

Our copy-editing drives (month-long backlog-reduction drives held in odd-numbered months) and blitzes (week-long themed editing in even-numbered months) have been very successful this year.

March drive: We set out to remove April, May, and June 2016 from our backlog and all February 2017 Requests (a total of 304 articles). By the end of the month, all but 22 of these articles were cleared. Officially, of the 28 who signed up, 22 editors recorded 257 copy edits (439,952 words). (These numbers do not always make sense when you compare them to the overall reduction in the backlog, because not all editors record every copy edit on the drive page.)

April blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 16 through 22 April; the theme was Requests. Of the 15 who signed up, 9 editors completed 43 articles (81,822 words).

May drive: The goals were to remove July, August, and September 2016 from the backlog and to complete all March 2017 Requests (a total of 300 articles). By the end of the month, we had reduced our overall backlog to an all-time low of 1,388 articles. Of the 28 who signed up, 17 editors completed 187 articles (321,810 words).

June blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 18 through 24 June; the theme was Requests. Of the 16 who signed up, 9 editors completed 28 copy edits (117,089 words).

2017 Coordinator elections: In June, coordinators for the second half of 2017 were elected. Jonesey95 moved back into the lead coordinator position, with Miniapolis stepping down to remain as coordinator; Tdslk and Corinne returned as coordinators, and Keira1996 rejoined after an extended absence. Thanks to all who participated!

July drive: We set out to remove August, September, October, and November 2016 from the backlog and to complete all May and June 2017 Requests (a total of 242 articles). The drive was an enormous success, and the target was nearly achieved within three weeks, so that December 2016 was added to the "old articles" list used as a goal for the drive. By the end of the month, only three articles from 2016 remained, and for the second drive in a row, the backlog was reduced to a new all-time low, this time to 1,363 articles. Of the 33 who signed up, 21 editors completed 337 articles (556,482 words).

August blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 20 through 26 August; the theme was biographical articles tagged for copy editing for more than six months (47 articles). Of the 13 who signed up, 11 editors completed 38 copy edits (42,589 words).

September drive: The goals were to remove January, February, and March 2017 from the backlog and to complete all August 2017 Requests (a total of 338 articles). Of the 19 who signed up, 14 editors completed 121 copy edits (267,227 words).

October blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 22 through 28 October; the theme was Requests. Of the 14 who signed up, 8 editors completed 20 articles (55,642 words).

November drive: We set out again to remove January, February, and March 2017 from the backlog and to complete all October 2017 Requests (a total of 207 articles). By the end of the month, these goals were reached and the backlog shrank to its lowest total ever, 997 articles, the first time it had fallen under one thousand (click on the graph above to see this amazing feat in graphical form). It was also the first time that the oldest copy-edit tag was less than eight months old. Of the 25 who signed up, 16 editors completed 159 articles (285,929 words).
