Talk:Glenn Babb[edit]

Hi. When assessing articles against the standard quality scale feel free to update the Biography quality rating at the same time as other banners. There are over 758,000 Biography articles at the moment, so sharing the assessments of other projects is always welcome.
As a separate point, when using the {{WPBS}} template on articles about living people please remember to set the |blp=yes parameter to activate the standard blp warning message. Regards. Road Wizard (talk) 18:28, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

Relief of Ladysmith[edit]

Hi Ron,

You are one of the few people who have made any comments regarding the article Relief of Ladysmith. I personally think that it should be renamed Battle of Tugela Heights as it is ne of four battles that were fought in order to relieve Ladysmith. Any views?

User talk:Shimal.H[edit]

Hi,
concerning User talk:Shimal.H, in my opinion your first warning was way to strong: if a new editor removes one particular sentence, twice, a couple of days apart, while also adding content, that is in no way vandalism ("a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of Wikipedia"). Please assume good faith, and unless you're convinced an editor deliberately wants to mess with our articles or he has ignored several warnings, don't jump straight to a level 3 warning: Start with the lower levels, leave him a welcome message, or just talk to him. I'm fairly certain he didn't really mean to mess with your page either, but just isn't quite sure how this page works yet.
Thanks, Amalthea 21:35, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

South African Wikimedia Chapter[edit]

Hi Ron2K. The idea of setting up a local Wikimedia chapter has been discussed by South African Wikipedians (and those associated with other Wikimedia projects) for some time now, and we want to help turn this dream into a reality. There are currently over 25 chapters established around the world, and several more planned and being discussed, but so far, none in Africa. A South African chapter, should it become a reality, would be a continental first. If you're interested in being involved in the creation of a South African Wikimedia Chapter, could you please email me directly :). Thanks and have a great day, Kaydee 68 (talk) 09:37, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

South African Wikimedia Chapter update and mailing list[edit]

Hi there. Local Wikipedians have set up a mailing list where we will be discussing the formation of a local Wikimedia Chapter in South Africa. Please join the mailing list at this url https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaza. There is also a page set up on Meta where you can add your name if you're interested to take this idea forward. Check out http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_South_Africa. Thanks Kaydee 68 (talk) 09:22, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Stellenbosch to bid for Wikimania 2012![edit]

Hi Ron!

The nascent South African Wikimedia chapter has decided to bid to host Wikimania in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 2012. This would be the first Wikimania in South Africa, and would be a great advertisement for our country. Please take a look at meta:Wikimania_2012/Bids/Stellenbosch. If you can add to the discussion, please do. If you feel that you are able to do anything to help, please join the Wikimedia South Africa mailing list and let us know. Even simple messages of support are valued!

Best regards,

David Richfield

Velvet Sky[edit]

I would apreciate it if you would take a look at the changes I have made to Velvet Sky (airline). I changed most statments to the past tense and also rearranged the history into correct chronological order. Please check if I missed anything. Also take a look at the airports that used to be VS destinations, to be sure I didn't leave any incorrect mentions of VS in them. Roger (talk) 11:20, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
