Tsitsi Dangarembga[edit]

Thanks for improving the lead on Tsitsi Dangarembga. I was not aware of that information.

I have a question. At the beginning of the month, I was creating articles on African filmmakers and noting them on both Africa and Film editathon pages. I then considered that counts of women on these editathon pages would be summarized at the end of the month. I could be causing double-counting of articles, so I started adding bios to only one page. I see that you added TD to the film page.

My question: Is it ok to put an article on more than one editathon page if that person can assigned to more than one category? thnx MauraWen (talk) 12:43, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Sure Maura, those pages are not used in our most accurate stats - except for sharing our achievements. It helps others to swing in and help as I hope I did here. The main figures come from Wikidata which counts up all the biogs and counts all the gender=female or gender=not male (not sure which - obvs latter is better). She seems to have a lot going for her being first in some things and best in others. I was thinking that I should read the book. I updated the article on "the" book which is where I think I found the extra facts. Your work got 1,000s of tweets. Great work. Victuallers (talk) 14:19, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Where is the gender=female on a page - I want to make sure I'm putting the data in properly so that it IS counted. ☕ Antiqueight chatter 18:29, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
@Victuallers and Antiqueight: I just started to read Tsitsi's book this weekend! That is what I love about writing articles on Wikipedia, it takes me to new subjects, people and places that I want to learn more about.
Gender=female, Isn't that taken care of on the talk page for a biography, as in Women =Y? MauraWen (talk) 09:44, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Ah Duh!! Of course - yes. It would be. I was trying to think where on the article it was but it is on the talk page. Grand so - I think I have mine all done. Though now I'm wondering - I wrote a page for a non-binary person - does theirs get picked up because the page doesn't say gender= male or is there a term that should be on the talk page to identify this? ☕ Antiqueight chatter 11:32, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Ummm no, I think. The important record of her gender is held here. This is a pretty subtle recording that aims to deal with non-binary, but its very complete. This record MAY come from the en:wiki or it may come from a wiki in another language or from an individual editor or data being loaded from a good source like the ODNB. One of the great starts for Women in Red was having this data and tools were built to improve its recording. There are only about 10,000 people who have no gender recorded (which is pretty small for 1.5m biogs). HTH Victuallers (talk) 12:18, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Wait -so, should I be updating wikidata for every article I write? I'm not entirely sure how easiest to do that - certainly it wasn't something I did when I started. Help? ☕ Antiqueight chatter 12:27, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
I do - I actually created it first and use a pool called "prepbio" to create my first draft. Victuallers (talk) 09:40, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

File:Dorothy "Kitty" Black 1914 2006.jpg[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:15, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Vanessa Kingori[edit]

Notice

The article Vanessa Kingori has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. —SerialNumber54129 paranoia /cheap sh*t room 14:54, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

Katherine Monbiot[edit]

Hi, My article has been nominated for deletion. I am unclear as to what is the problem, as I thought a world champion was notable enough, and I don't understand the comment about the references I had. Can you help and explain to me why it was nominated? Thanks Golan's mom (talk) 04:35, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi @אמא של גולן: Sorry I saw your note, went to look and then got distracted. The arm wrestling is reffed but doesnt seem to be well covered and the association that she is chair of does not seem to have an address, employees etc. This makes the notability tricky but not insurmountable. Sadly the page on the arm wresting contest doesnt namecheck the women. Might be good to sort that out. I certainly think that world champions are notable assuming that the championship was representative - and not like the us baseball "world series" or a small village that has the "world" spider eating contest. Hope that helps Victuallers (talk) 17:16, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for the explanation! Golan's mom (talk) 07:10, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Victuallers! Do you know how to link this sister project: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Woman_of_the_Century/Rosina_Emmet_Sherwood to Rosina Emmet Sherwood's page? I think I have seen it done on other pages, but can't quite find an example after surfing around. Thanks for checking. WomenArtistUpdates (talk) 21:47, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Photo help[edit]

"The Southern Plains Indian Museum displays richly varied arts of western Oklahoma tribal peoples including the Kiowa, Comanche, Kiowa-Apache, Southern Cheyenne, Southern Arapaho, Wichita, Caddo, Delaware, and Ft. Still Apache. Their historic clothing, shields, weapons, baby carriers, and toys highlight the exhibits"

You know I am terrible with photos. I think this one [1] is usable on the article I wrote for the Southern Plains Indian Museum, but I want to make sure. It has the logo on it for the Indian Arts and Crafts Board which is an agency of the U.S. Department of the Interior and it is on a government website. Does that make it usable for commons?

Getting quality snapshots[edit]

Thanks for adding quality Nigerian images to Commons/Wikipedia. I understand the copyright guidelines concerning videos that are eligible for snaps, but what I want to know is the software you use for taking your snaps that ensures high quality images. Regards. HandsomeBoy (talk) 09:36, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi Handsome Boy. Thanks for noticing! No complex software used. I just full screen the video and then "prt sc" print screen. You need to load these up with the templates YouTube and License Review and make sure the screen grab shows the time in the video. I then crop it after it has been over checked for its license. The only really good source I have found is NdaniTV, but if you know of others ... Victuallers (talk) 09:58, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

This barnstar marks a special moment in your wiki career: you have just completed 100,000 edits. It's been a long road since your first one on 2006-10-27. I hope you feel proud of what you have accomplished and that you recognize that you are changing the world in a positive way with these contributions. Congratulations, Roger! Well done; and don't stop! I look forward to working with you during the next 100,000. Rosiestep (talk) 15:13, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you Dolotta - your own edit count looks very quick and I think you'll get there much quicker than the 11-12 years it took me. I am curious as to what the 100,000 measures... is it en:wiki edits in article space? Cheers (from one of the 515) Victuallers (talk) 06:52, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
