SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping.

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please tell me on SuggestBot's talk page. Thanks from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker.

P.S. You received these suggestions because your name was listed on the SuggestBot request page. If this was in error, sorry about the confusion. -- SuggestBot (talk) 15:11, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Nature stories[edit]

I liked it :) benzband (talk) 08:15, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! It means a lot that someone actually read what I wrote, liked it, and was willing to give me feedback! It's much appreciated! :D I'm going to try to write a different heading's one soon. --~ScholarlyBreeze~ 08:20, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
And thanks for your participation at WP:Motto of the day! ;-) The MOTD displays on hundreds of userpages but participants are nevertheless very scarce. benzband (talk) 08:56, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome! --~ScholarlyBreeze~ 17:21, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

File:WikiGnome2.png listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:WikiGnome2.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. SuperMarioMan 22:13, 7 August 2012 (UTC)


Also, (probably you already know?) there is Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/Specials which contains nominations that are to appear on a certain day. Best ~ benzband (talk) 21:00, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I was aware, but thank you anyways. --~ScholarlyBreeze~ 21:43, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

RfA questions[edit]

You're first two questions at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Floydian 2 are vague to the point that they are almost unanswerable. The third question (on recall) is highly discouraged since it hurts a nomination no matter how it is answered. Ryan Vesey 21:31, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Scholarly Breeze. I think you made a sensible decision to remove your questions from Floydian's RfA. One month and only 423 edits with only 92 to articles doesn't really tell me that you actually have enough experience or knowledge of policies to be taking an interest yet in serious functions of Wikipedia such as RfA. I'm always curious as to why such areas are a magnet to new, young, and inexperienced users. It's generally assumed that editors who vote on RfA will know where and how to do extensive research before voting and not just follow the comments and opinions of others, or copy their questions. If you would like to help out on maintenance tasks, perhaps you might drop in on on the folks at the WP:CVU and learn all about counter-vandalism. They even have an academy where you can learn all about it. Do take a look at this page too. Happy editing! Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 22:17, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Getting Wikimedians to the Olympic Games[edit]

Hi. I am part of an effort to get Wikimedians access to the 2016 Summer Olympics as accredited reporters and photographers. Part of this effort includes covering the 2012 Summer Paralympics. Two Wikimedians have credentials to attend these games as reporters through Wikimedia Australia. As English Wikipedia does not allow original reporting, this is largely through Wikinews with a project page found at Wikinews:Paralympic Games. If you are interested in helping to get Wikimedians to the next Summer Olympics,I'd encourage you to assist with Wikinews efforts, and also to work on all language 2012 Summer Paralympic Wikipedia articles before, during and after the Games to demonstrate a track record of success. Thank you. --LauraHale (talk) 04:20, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Lapeer County, Michigan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Wayne County (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

WikiProject C-SPAN?[edit]

Greetings fellow Wikipedia editor -

I am leaving you this note because I have reason to believe that you are interested in C-SPAN. (I may have made this assumption based on your C-SPAN user box, or perhaps for some other reason.) If this is not an interest of yours, please feel free to read no further and delete this message.

If you are in fact someone who is interested in C-SPAN, then let me put forward an idea that I have been kicking around for a while. What if we started a C-SPAN WikiProject?

The parameters of this (potential) project are up for discussion, but it could include some or all of the following (as well as things that may occur to you that have not occurred to me):

  • Creation, maintenance, and improvement of articles and lists directly related to C-SPAN and its programming.
  • Use of C-SPAN programming in citations for various topics
  • Inclusion of unique and targeted C-SPAN video links for various articles. (Doing this with respect for established guidelines at Wikipedia:External links.) (Example: If you are interested in the submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN-742), then having easy access to the eight hours of programming taped while a C-SPAN crew were guests on that submarine could also be of interest to you.)
  • Inclusion of (and possible further creation of) templated links such as {{C-SPAN|laurabush}}, that will easily take article readers to a link of all C-SPAN Video Library links for the person about whom the article is about.
  • What else?

I don't know exactly how far we may want to go, nor in what directions, but I do believe (as I have long noted on my user page) that C-SPAN and Wikipedia are both...

...fantastic vehicles for the free exchange of ideas and information in a non-sound-bite manner, and they both invite the participation of any parties (expert or amateur) who are interested in taking the time to absorb and/or contribute to the ideas and information offered. C-SPAN and Wikipedia go together like peanut butter and jelly, and I want to help give other Wiki users easy access to the great work that C-SPAN has done on a variety of topics.

Now, I should mention that I have never started a WikiProject before, and I do not know the best way to go about it. (Perhaps one of you do?) Let me offer one of my sandbox pages, User:KConWiki/sandbox/Wikiproject C-SPAN?, as a gathering area for comments until such time as we gather enough steam to start our own WikiProject page.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope that you will give some consideration as to whether this is something we ought to attempt. Please feel free to pass this message on to others you know whom might be interested, and please let me know your thoughts and comments.

Motto of the Day Help Request April 2014[edit]

Today's motto...

Wikipedia: Everyone's Edit War

Nominate one today!

Motto of the Day (WP:MOTD) is in a state of emergency and really needs your help! There are not enough editors who are reviewing or nominating mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review, and this probably means that you will notice a red link or “This space for rent” as our mottos for the next weeks and months.

Please take a moment to review the nominations and nominate your own new mottos at Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/In review and Wikipedia:Motto of the day/Nominations/'Specials. Any help would be appreciated! MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 09:13, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

This message has been sent by pjoef on behalf of Motto of the Day to all editors of the English Wikipedia who are showing MOTD's templates on their pages, and to all the participants to MOTD: (page, template, and category).

Invitation to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! So it would be a good chance to win something for improving stubs on African sportspeople, including footballers, athletes, Olympians and Paralympians etc, particularly female ones, but also male. Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing a few expanded articles on African Paralympians, Olympians and committees etc, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. Thanks. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:14, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
