Speedy deletion nomination of Helen M. Duncan

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Helen M. Duncan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 19:49, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Nomination of Helen M. Duncan for deletion

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Helen M. Duncan is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Helen M. Duncan until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on good quality evidence, and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 07:12, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Q

Hi Q! Thanks for coordinating an event for WikiWomen's History Month! I am trying to gather information on a few things for a summary I'm writing about the month! It'd be great to know the following information, if possible:

  • How many participants did the event have?
  • How many new editors created accounts? (A list of editors would be awesome!)
  • Is it possible that all of the article and contribution outcomes can be shared on the WWHM outcomes page?

Any thoughts you can share about successes, participant experience, lessons learned, things one wishes they would have done differently, ways WMF and chapters can support these events, and so forth, would be wonderful. Thank you so much and all you do for improving women's representation and participation in Wikipedia. Sarah (talk) 20:16, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!

Disambiguation link notification for April 19

Hi. When you recently edited Tahinopita, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Greek and Eggs (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.

Wikipedia Stories Project


My name is Victor and I'm a storyteller with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. I'm chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who make and use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I asked Sarah Stierch who might be good to talk to and she send me your name.

I'd very much 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. Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project.

Thank you for your time,

Victor Grigas

Hey! I created this for you. Feel free to manipulate if you wish. Also, if you share it with people make sure you replace the signature with your own four tildes so it's not my signature. To send it out, the best thing (I think?) is to go to User:EdwardsBot and on the talk page perhaps ask for someone to send it out for you. I have no clue how to use those bots, as I'm such a fail with things like that, but, I've learned my lesson cutting and pasting invites for people :) A few lists that you might want to have it sent to include:

I'm not sure if the categories are usable by the bot, but it'd be awesome if they were! SarahStierch (talk) 14:03, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
