On Saturday April 30, 2016, in conjunction with a global campaign, the Guggenheim will host its fourth Wikipedia edit-a-thon — or, #guggathon — to enhance Wikipedia's coverage of modern and contemporary artists from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and to counter geocultural systemic bias on Wikipedia.

The Guggenheim aims to further the goals of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, and build on the model of campaigns like the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Women in Architecture, Wikipedia Asian Month, and Art+Feminism.

New and experienced editors are welcome. The event will include a training session for participants who are new to Wikipedia and Wikipedia specialists will be on hand to provide basic instruction and editing support.

Can’t join us in New York? Visit our global MENA Artists Month partnership page to coordinate international and online events as well.

Time: Presentation: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm, Edit-a-thon: 2:30pm - 6:00pm
Location: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue (88th Street), New York City, New York 10128
Guests should enter using the 88th Street entrance via the ramp at 88th Street and Fifth Avenue

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) ~~~~~

Tomato sauce[edit]

In your sandbox now is the final iteration of the Talk page of the deleted article. As mentioned on my Talk page, given that there's already an article on Tomato sauce, the redirect there may not be a bad move, although I doubt many would type in "(condiment)" as well. Your call, either way. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 00:17, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Black American Sign Language as African Diasporic Language[edit]

Hi Savvyjack23, I'm about to start a round of translating Featured articles into Haitian Creole and choosing the least frequently edited ones. BASL seemed great and I noticed your name on the talk page removing it from Languages of the African Diaspora. I'd argue for it returning into that category on one complete-but-très-feasible hypothetical and a deductive-slightly-less-hypothetical. 1) The complete hypothetical - the article notes that BASL has a larger signing space. I'm guessing this is because of Afrisporic movement language which not only uses a wider range of movements compared to European but is also more integral to daily life and shapes both bodies and communication. 2) The article mentions how BASL signers tend to adopt different rhythm patterns and a "songified" speech - this seems to be a direct throwback to the tonality and rhythm of languages of Africa and the diaspora. I would say that these two elements point to an African language geneology. Cheers! Anacaona (talk) 02:21, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
