Center for the Study of Women in Society[edit]

Hey, Ms. Valfontis,

Would you be willing to review Draft:Center for the Study of Women in Society (CSWS)? (This is one of the drafts I originally posted for the editathon last spring at UO.) I've been working on the "Beginnings" section this week, but plan to move on to describe the Center's work funding research and providing programs over the past 30+ years. There are many documents posted on the CSWS website, but not so much from secondary sources, other than coverage of their decennial celebrations. I'd appreciate your perspective. Cheers! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 18:15, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi! Could you ping me again in a couple of days? My real life job (you know the one?) is kicking my butt right now! Valfontis (talk) 02:09, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Sure, no worries. I forgot this would be your busy season! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 02:15, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Not sure any of us are recovered... still, would you be willing to take a look at the CSWS article I just moved to article space? I found a few more resources, but still concerned about enough secondary sources. Thanks! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 21:22, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm still here! Valfontis (talk) 17:47, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Glad to see you are still around! I'm still hacking away at some of the Art+Feminism drafts--thought you might like Sally Bush... Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 17:07, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Yay! Kooky old Sally! Valfontis (talk) 17:52, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

  • When performing some administrative actions the reason field briefly gave suggestions as text was typed. This change has since been reverted so that issues with the implementation can be addressed. (T34950)
  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

  • A recent query shows that only 16% of administrators on the English Wikipedia have enabled two-factor authentication. If you haven't already enabled it please consider doing so.
  • Cookie blocks should be deployed to the English Wikipedia soon. This will extend the current autoblock system by setting a cookie for each block, which will then autoblock the user after they switch accounts under a new IP.
  • A bot will now automatically place a protection template on protected pages when admins forget to do so.
