January lichen task force newsletter[edit]

SYMBIOSIS: The lichen task force newsletter — January 2024
A look at what we've accomplished, working together

Happy New Year! The colour-coded list to the right shows the status of the project as of the end of 2023; compare it with the list in last January's newsletter to see how far we've come. It's clearly an improvement, but equally, it shows how much we still have to do. There are scores of articles about lichen genera still to write, thousands of lichen species are missing, and there are reams of information still to add about the effects of climate change, air pollution and more on lichen diversity and survival. It's more than enough to keep us occupied for decades to come. Here's to a productive year!

  • As of 19 February 2024, there are 3,867 articles within the scope of WikiProject Lichen task force, of which 3 are featured and 32 are good articles. This makes up 0.06% of the articles on Wikipedia, 0.03% of all featured articles and lists, and 0.08% of all good articles. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 11,740 pages in the project.

  • The task force's first collaboration article, Lichens and air pollution was started in Draft space last month. Everyone is invited to add whatever bits they can, or to make suggestions about what needs clarifying, expanding, cutting, etc.
  • A Draft:Lichen page has also been added, to allow for a complete rewrite of the current lichen article, which needs a major overhaul and update. We anticipate this one will take most of 2024! Plans are to develop a solid outline before starting any writing.

Newsletter challenge

Esculenta accepted last month's challenge and updated the Malmidea article with 14 additional species now recognised by Species Fungorum as being in the genus.

This month, we're looking for someone to update the Gassicurtia article, last updated in January of 2021. According to Species Fungorum, there are now four additional species in the genus. The editor who updates the article will receive public kudos in the next newsletter.

Wikimedians for Sustainable Development - December 2023 Newsletter[edit]

This is our twenty-seventh newsletter, a sort of year-in-review for 2023.

Dear Wikimedians for Sustainable Development,

As we bid farewell to 2023, we reflect on a year that has been an uneven year for our user group. While the journey has been marked by some truly inspiring events, most of our efforts have been largely uncoordinated and the user group hasn't been the support it could have been. Yet, there's a glimmer of hope and a world of potential for 2024.

Highlights of 2023:

Newsletters Galore
We kicked off the year with zeal, sharing updates and inspiration through four newsletters. The number of things happening in the movement is astounding, but we need to rethink the format of the newsletter going into the next year.
Growing Strong
The Wikimedians for Sustainable Development family welcomed 33 new members in 2023. Your passion and dedication continue to inspire us, and we look forward to nurturing this community spirit in the year ahead.
Wikimania Talks
Our voices echoed far and wide at Wikimania, where several members of our community took the virtual stage to share insights and ideas about everything from Wikipedians-in-Residence's to open data. Your contributions showcased our commitment to sustainable development on a global scale.
Content Creation Magic
Throughout the year, our extended community demonstrated incredible dedication to expanding the knowledge base on Wikipedia. Countless hours were spent creating and curating content that aligns with our mission, contributing to a more sustainable digital ecosystem.
Campaigning hard
We saw a large variety of campaigns, from writing challenges to editathons. The willingness to experiment with new formats and partners, as well as learning from past efforts, shows great promise for the future.

Acknowledging Challenges:

While we celebrate these achievements, we acknowledge that 2023 presented its fair share of challenges. A lack of global coordination reminded us that the road to sustainable development is not always linear. However, it is precisely these challenges that fuel our determination to work together more cohesively in the coming year and proof that the user group is needed.

Hopeful Anticipation for 2024:

As we turn the page to 2024, let's carry forward the lessons learned and the successes celebrated. We are optimistic that, with renewed energy and a collective commitment, we will overcome obstacles and create an even more impactful and connected Wikimedians for Sustainable Development community.

Here's to a year of collaboration, growth, and making a lasting impact on the world through our shared passion for sustainability. Together, we can turn challenges into opportunities and pave the way for a brighter future.

Wishing you all a joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Warm regards, User:Ainali, User:Daniel Mietchen

PS. We have started writing our yearly report, please add your activities to it.

Off the waitlist, but still "sold out" on Eventbrite[edit]

@Wil540 art@User:Pharos I got an email from Eventbrite that said I was off the waitlist and had until 4 pm today to claim my ticket. Alas, when I clicked on "Claim my spot" at about 7 am this morning (1/10/24) Eventbrite said the event was "sold out".

Not sure what to do. I just turned on my email so if you want to email me or even call, we can work it out. Nowa (talk) 13:13, 10 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Citations needed for plot and characters of a book?[edit]

Hi, I see you added Citation Needed tags to the Plot and Characters sections of Rumble Fish (novel). Should supporting refs from reliable third parties be needed for a plot synopsis or character list? This info is surely derived from the work itself. Interpretation or evaluation should definitely be sourced, but much or all of the info in these sections is not asserting any more than the work itself offers, so refs are a rarity in these sections of comparable articles. Yours, Guffydrawers (talk) 08:06, 29 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Guffydrawers you make a good point. I have little experience with editing articles on novels, so I did not know the convention. Thank you for informing me, I have removed the Citation needed templates. - Wil540 art (talk) 05:11, 30 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
