Wikipedia and YOUR History: Taking Control of the Internet[edit]

See you at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Street, Laurel, MD on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM EST. See http://www.meetup.com/Wikimedia-DC/events/205494212/ for more information. Geraldshields11 (talk) 02:13, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

I just prefer David to do it?[edit]

I didn't suggest any such thing. You might want to brush up on your basic comprehension skills. I've done a fair few ITN image updates in my time, and I've never pinged David to do it for me. Thanks. Stephen 09:25, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

@Stephen: Sorry for the misunderstanding. Nastiness aside – I'm confident in my comprehension skills, thanks – I meant something closer to at least someone saying "oh, it's fine we have plenty of admins who know how to do it, but I just prefer David to do it" like Stephen suggested some might feel. It was obvious from your comment that you knew how to, and often do, swap the images, when time and resources permit. But it also seemed clear to me that you were saying, in general, that knowing how to swap the image may not be the issue and that -- in general, not necessarily personally -- there may be a preference to have David do the task because he has Commons adminship. Likewise, in general, time and resources may limit someone's ability to swap the image. And, while I'm here, to clarify, I don't have a problem with either stance, and particularly the latter; my frustration in response was due to the fact that I already mentioned early on that someone may just not have time to, or really just not want to, swap the image. There's no issue with that because this is a volunteer project. -- tariqabjotu 12:22, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. And my comment was uncalled for, apologies. Stephen 01:26, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Yemen events[edit]

Salam Tariq. I have just found that you are active in Wikipedia:In_the_news/Candidates#.5BPosted.5D_Ongoing:_Yemeni_Crisis. I am happy to meet you again. If you remember we work together with several other users to make Islam article an FA in 2007 and 2008. ;-)

By the way, I think Aftermath of the 2014–15 Yemeni coup d'état is not suitable for the events. The Saudi Arabia has launched a military operation and may invaded Yemen after fall of the Aden. So we should find a title which fits the crisis. Please participate in this discussion. --Seyyed(t-c) 02:43, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello Tariqabjotu, I'm just a random passerby. Seems to me that you've been putting off archiving your talk page. Advise you to do it now (or soon)! :D starship.paint ~ ¡Olé! 06:42, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

@Starship.paint: Yeah, it's been awhile. It's more manageable now. -- tariqabjotu 07:19, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
@Starship.paint: That being said, did you really just come to my talk page to see if it's been archived recently? Surely that can't be the case. -- tariqabjotu 07:39, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
