- Thank you very much Johnsoniensis - I appreciate the sentiment, and I'm sure Stacey does too! I'll copy the barnstar over to her page too later if that's all right! WormTT(talk) 08:28, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Your GA nomination of Rodmarton Manor
The article Rodmarton Manor you nominated as a good article has passed ; see Talk:Rodmarton Manor for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Hey Worm, long time no talk—The ed17 here in my o-fficial capacity at the Wikimedia Foundation. I hope all is well. :-)
I'm glad you noticed our Facebook post about Sabrina Sidney yesterday—if you were wondering, as of this message it has reached 330k people, with 8.3k clicking on the link or post. I brought up the idea of a posting a direct link to the FAC on Facebook with an invitation to review it, and my colleague Aubrie Johnson is amenable to the idea. However, there's no real way of telling what might happen if we do so; as you know, the internet can be a strange place. What do you think? Would you be interested?

- @Ed Erhart (WMF) and The ed17: - which ever is better to catch you on! Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I've been rather quiet on Wikipedia for past few weeks. I think it would be a great idea to get fresh blood into the Featured Article process - personally, one of the reasons I've nominated so few featured articles is that I feel it is a closed garden, where few people can enter, due to the impression when I read the discussions. Simply the benefit of going through the process is not outweighed by the stress of entering it as an outsider. I believe an influx of visitors may well help that, even if it does cause some short term teething issues, especially at Sabrina's article. So, yes, I'm definitely interested - all I'm really looking for is feedback anyway, and I'm sure that feedback is something we'd get! WormTT(talk) 20:28, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
