Sunday March 26: Action=History Wiki-Hackathon @ Ace Hotel
NYC-2017-WIKIPEDIA DAY-90.jpg
Wikimedia New York City logo.svg

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:13, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Draft:The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings

A tag has been placed on Draft:The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

Possible G1 (no meaningful content or history) and G13 (has not been edited since 14:18, 6 September 2016‎)

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, pages that meet certain criteria may be deleted at any time.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. TheSandDoctor (talk) 18:06, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

@TheSandDoctor: Eh. Don't see any reason to delete it, but don't have a strong opinion (obviously there's not much there). The existence reminds me that I still need to come back to it, but I can appreciate that it's kind of goofy sitting in drafts. I've moved it to my userspace without redirect and removed the csd tag fyi. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 18:48, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
Hi there! I tagged it as it did not have any real meaningful content (just the title again with word 'is' if I recall correctly) and had not been edited in nearly 7 months. Of course, as cliche as it might be, nothing personal was meant in tagging it and I am glad to hear that you will work on it. I just hop through the drafts namespace using Special:Random/Draft looking for attack pages (they are rare in my limited experience, but have found a couple), G13 drafts, user pages created in wrong namespace (moving to proper username in user namespace if/when appropriate), expanding sports related drafts and moving when appropriate, fixing template errors, etc.
Hope all is well!
TheSandDoctor (talk) 20:58, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
EDIT: When tagging it, I did not see the sidebar that was on the page and only saw the main draft content for some reason. If I had seen it I may not have tagged it in the first place. I am glad that good came out of it though in that I ended up reminding you to work on it :D --TheSandDoctor (talk) 21:06, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

@PaleoNeonate: Ha. Thanks. I hate to admit when vandalism, mainspace jokes, etc. make me laugh. :) I'll keep this link handy in case I ever need to impress people with my soothsaying abilities (at an RfA, say). If you ever need a prophecy in the future, I'll get you a great deal.

Face-smile.svg although knowing that pastebin, it may eventually be lost, unless you also save the image. Although this was a mainspace joke, I only risked it because I knew the article was only hours or days away from deletion, and already had many unsourced claims already. Noone seems to have complained about it so far. Have a good day, —░]PaleoNeonate█ ⏎ ?ERROR 15:09, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

We will also follow up on plans for recent and upcoming edit-a-thons, museum and library projects, education initiatives, and other outreach activities.

We welcome the participation of our friends from the Free Culture movement and from all educational and cultural institutions interested in developing free knowledge projects.

After the main meeting, pizza/chicken/vegetables and refreshments and video games in the gallery!

7:00pm - 9:00 pm at Babycastles gallery, 137 West 14th Street

We especially encourage folks to add your 5-minute lightning talks to our roster, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 18:30, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Category:Animal user templates has been nominated for discussion

Category:Animal user templates, which you created, has been nominated for possible deletion, merging, or renaming. A discussion is taking place to see if it abides with the categorization guidelines. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments at the category's entry on the categories for discussion page. Thank you. Since this category contains only two pet-related templates, I think the merger makes sense. However, I wouldn't be opposed to keeping them separate. Waz8:T-C-E 02:28, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

CSD nomination

Hi. I just saw your CSD nomination for Androphobia. What do you think of the new (sourced section) about historic usage of the term? Do you not think this constitutes enough material for discussion in an article? There is a sourced ICD classification now as well. Do you think another AfD might be more appropriate?

@Basalisk: As I'm not an admin I don't have access to the deleted text, so they will have to evaluate whether it's sufficiently different to merit a separate discussion (it's been long enough that I remember the discussion and the problems, but not the text itself). The issue with it was that it conflated two meanings of the word, when neither meaning was particularly independently notable. One sense was, basically, misandry. The new version does generally leave that out. The other is the psychological phobia. There have been a lot of discussions about the various [prefix] + phobia formulations that find their way into listicles, with sometimes brief mentions in reliable sources. Looking at this version, the major issue is that it's a dictionary definition, about a word and its use over time, which is Wiktionary domain rather than Wikipedia. This is the case for several such -phobias simply because there's little else that can be said about them without relying on poor sources (pop culture sites, "fear of" sites, books of curiosities, pop psychology magazines, etc.). If there are reliable sources that talk about the subject (vs. the word) in depth and allow for a good article to be written about it, I'd certainly support keeping it. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 12:38, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, you are the reviewing admin. Didn't check. Thought you were the article creator, sorry. Well, consider what I wrote above to be through that frame. :) — Rhododendrites talk \\ 12:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
