Miami-area special project: Your input needed![edit]

Dear RandomStuff,

You appear to be active in WikiProject Miami, or have contributed a lot recently to Miami-related articles. I would like to invite you to contribute your opinions on a grant proposal for a project that may provide unique and helpful resources for Wikipedia in Miami.

Over the last six months, Wikipedia and Wikinews have been discussing a project proposal with the Knight Foundation which could create a new type of an environment for locally-oriented encyclopedic and news content. The general idea involves an official sanctioning of a local Wiki community in one or two charter areas, one of them being Miami. The Wiki community would be empowered to cover all things Miami -- even things that normally would not pass notability restrictions -- and cover both encyclopedic information as well as current events in the South Florida community. The proposal may even involve the creation of a physical "wiki space": some sort of a local room or office to coordinate efforts and provide community members with a place to create and edit articles.

I'm working on formalizing the proposal, and would like to invite you and other Miami contributors to a project brainstorming session via chat. The chat will take place this Saturday, July 14th, at 12 noon Eastern Time (9am Pacific). If enough people can't make it there will be an additional repeat meeting at some later time.

The online meeting will happen using IRC on the channel #wikipedia-miami -- you can use your own chat client or the use this handy link to join the chat. Please don't forget to provide your username when you log into chat.

I look forward to talking with you. Thanks! -- IlyaHaykinson 04:28, 11 July 2007 (UTC)


Hey, I can't find any proof that User:Johnpdavid has rights to the Boca Developer rights. I hence am removing this image from the article and retagging until this can be proven that this user created this image. Sasquatch t|c 17:49, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

"suspiciously similar"[edit]

Nah. Addd wiki (talk · contribs) has been around editing articles for a while, where Marketingsupport (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · block user · block log) just showed up recently....--SarekOfVulcan 20:39, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Oops, my mistake -- it's a pretty new account, but it's been editing on other topics....--SarekOfVulcan 20:40, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

AfD for Janet Reno High School[edit]

I have nominated it for deletion as per WP:CRYSTAL and WP:NOTE, I apologize for not letting you know earlier as courtesy. Please feel free to comment at Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Log/2007_July_16#Janet_Reno_High_School. Thanks!--Cerejota 04:03, 16 July 2007 (UTC)


Hi, Sarek. Thanks for your help with the articles. I am having a hard time finding online sources to back up some of my entries on Biscayne Landing and Munisport, a lot of it was going off of memory. Also, can't find anyone who has hard-copies of some of my stronger points. I am going to tone down the articles for now and move on to other subjects. Feel free to modify/revert/whatever my toned down versions. --RandomStuff 16:38, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Not a problem. As long as what's left is properly cited, I'm happy -- I just got really ticked off by Marketingsupport deleting stuff saying it was uncited when clicking through to the cite showed the exact line that you quoted.--SarekOfVulcan 16:42, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, you'd think PR people would learn that kind of behaviour always causes more problems than it solves. I would have worked with him happily to correct any inaccuracies or make more NPOV if he identified his COI and his issues, and once he asked for my contact information I could tell he was about to threaten legal action so I had to throw as many citations in there as possible to protect myself. Still, Biscayne Landings shouldn't suffer just because they have one annoying PR guy, now that things have calmed down. As I am doing more research, it looks like it might be a good project (Swerdlow is out, and Boca looks like they are handling things better), and NoMoBS looks sincerely interested in contributing within wikipedia guidelines. I'll hang around long enough to keep NoMoBS honest, but the article definitely took a negative slant after Marketingsupport's attempt to spin. --RandomStuff 16:49, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
