Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited! Wiki Loves Pride

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride, a global campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia during the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. The project is being spearheaded by two organizers with roots in the Pacific Northwest. Meetups are being organized in some cities, or you can participate remotely. Wikimedia Commons will also be hosting an LGBT-related photo challenge.

In Portland, there are two ways to contribute. One is a photography campaign called "Pride PDX", for pictures related to LGBT culture and history. The Wiki Loves Pride edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, June 21 from noon–4pm at Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 236 at Portland State University. Prior Wikipedia editing is not required; assistance will be available the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own laptops and cords.

Feel free to showcase your work here!

Hi Scott.I see you edited just a couple of days ago. I'm trying to resolve the enormous problem of getting your tools back up and running. If there is anything you can do to help I would be most grateful. The person who originally undertook this is not being particularly helpful. See User talk:cyberpower678#Tools. Thanks. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 04:50, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Who might be the person who originally undertook this?—cyberpowerChat:Online 16:19, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
If you're implying I'm the original undertaker, then you are mistaken. Some people wanted me to take them over but I never wanted to. I offered to temporarily hold them until someone else was willing and then Sigma came along. So I believe that would make him the original undertaker. In other words, the only thing developerwise that goes back to Scottywong here is the fact that I operate his bots.—cyberpowerChat:Online 16:44, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
@Kudpung: @Cyberpower678: It's been a long while since I've done any work here. I vaguely remember taking a stab at moving some of my tools from Toolserver over to Labs, and the process was not easy. I remember that the Labs servers were not very reliable, things would change randomly that would break the tool and you'd have to login and restart things periodically to get them working. It was a frustrating process, to say the least, and I eventually gave up on it because I didn't have enough interest and motivation to get past the difficulties with the server. Have either of you seen any indication that the WMF Labs servers are in any better condition than they were a year or two ago? Are things any more or less stable? Can you do database queries and get a result quickly (at least as quickly as you could on Toolserver)? ‑Scottywong| squeal _ 23:40, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi Scotty, I'm not a bot writer, but I use some bots, and while Labs was a bit of a demoralising disaster area last year I gather it is not so bad now. Whether it is as good as toolserver used to be I can't say. ϢereSpielChequers 12:45, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
