I'd just like to be the first to welcome you to the podcasting wikiproject! Recently participation in the project has drastically reduced, so I hope that you'll be a great addition to the cause. For information on what to do, check out the project and talk pages. If you need any help feel free to ask me. Ganfon 15:34, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:St Mark's CopticChurch--TO.jpg[edit]

Hello, there.

I just wanted to know if you're able to take a picture of St. Mark's Coptic Orthodox Church in Toronto. You can find out the street address online (the links to those websites are on the image pages). The current images are, unfortunately, copyrighted, as I was the one who uploaded them.

The current (copyrighted) images may get deleted, so if they do, then I'll need to replace them.

I need you or somebody else to take a picture, release its copyright, and upload it onto Wikipedia. I HAVE contacted others to notify them also, so if there are more than one pictures, that's OK (I can still make an article on them). I want these images to be used for, specifically, the article "Coptic Orthodox Church in Canada". The image page is, again:

Wikipedia:WikiProject Podcasting[edit]

Hey, I was just looking over the list of members on the Podcasting group and wanted to see if you were still active in the project. If so, it looks like the project could use a little jump-start. In particular, I think notability requirements and assessment guidelines could be added/updated. Please check out the page if you're still interested and move your name to the 2011 active list.

Wikimedia Stories Project[edit]


Meu nome é Victor e eu trabalho com a Fundação Wikimedia,organização sem fins lucrativos que apóia a Wikipédia. Estamosnarrando as histórias inspiradoras da comunidade Wikipedia em todo o mundo, incluindo os dos leitores, editores e doadores. As histórias são absolutamente essencial para qualquer organização sem fins lucrativos para persuadir as pessoas novas para apoiar a causa, e nós sabemos que a vasta rede de pessoas que usam a Wikipedia tem muito a compartilhar. É importante transmitir a incrível diversidade de pessoas que vieram a contar com a Wikipédia todos os dias.

Eu gostaria realmente a oportunidade de entrevistá-lo para contar a sua história, com a possibilidade de usá-lo em nossos materiais, em sites de nossa comunidade, ou como parte de arrecadação de fundos este ano para incentivar outras pessoas para apoiar a Wikipédia.

Eu vou estar em São Paulo a partir de 1 - 2 de Março de 2012, e eu vou estar presente:

Eu estou esperando que você vai elaborar sobre a sua históriacomigo. Peço desculpas por qualquer mal-tradução nesta mensagem (talvez possa inspirar uma risada?) Estou usando oGoogle-traduzir no momento, mas o plano de ter tradutores disponíveis quando estamos no Brasil.

Por favor, deixe-me saber se você está inclinado a participar doProjeto Histórias Wikipedia!


Victor Grigas



My name is Victor and I work with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. We're chronicling the inspiring stories from the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade new people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who use Wikipedia have so much to share. It's important to convey the incredible diversity of people who've come to rely upon Wikipedia every day.

I'd really like the opportunity to interview you to tell your story, with the possibility of using it in our materials, on our community websites, or as part of this year’s fundraiser to encourage others to support Wikipedia.

I will be in São Paolo from the 1st - 2nd of March 2012, and I'll be attending:

I'm hoping you will elaborate on your story with me. I apologize for any mis-translation in this message (perhaps it might inspire a laugh?) I am using Google-translate at the moment, but plan to have translators available when we are in Brazil.

Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project!

Thank you,

Victor Grigas

Non-free rationale for File:Twitter tt 14june2010.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Twitter tt 14june2010.gif. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 17:20, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge ‎ has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant!♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:52, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
