Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite
Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant!♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:57, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
The UPA article mistranslated the source. I fixed the translation there. - üser:Altenmann >t 05:17, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
Ways to improve Microregion of Frederico Westphalen
Hi, I'm Robvanvee. YuriNikolai, thanks for creating Microregion of Frederico Westphalen!
I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. The article needs sources.
The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Welcome to MILHIST
Hallo, I see that you created this redirect (and a couple of variations) but there seems to be no mention of the term at the target article Wycliffe's Bible. Could you please add some sourced information to that article to explain the redirect? Thanks. PamD 20:52, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Wikiproject Military history coordinator election nominations open
Nominations for the upcoming project coordinator election are now open. A team of up to ten coordinators will be elected for the next year. The project coordinators are the designated points of contact for issues concerning the project, and are responsible for maintaining our internal structure and processes. They do not, however, have any authority over article content or editor conduct, or any other special powers. More information on being a coordinator is available here. If you are interested in running, please sign up here by 23:59 UTC on 14 September! Voting doesn't commence until 15 September. If you have any questions, you can contact any member of the coord team. Cheers, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 00:54, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
Milhist coordinator election voting has commenced
G'day everyone, voting for the 2018 Wikiproject Military history coordinator tranche is now open. This is a simple approval vote; only "support" votes should be made. Project members should vote for any candidates they support by 23:59 (UTC) on 28 September 2018. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:22, 15 September 2018 (UTC) Note: the previous version omitted a link to the election page, therefore you are receiving this follow up message with a link to the election page to correct the previous version. We apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused.
Many plants produce cyanogenic glycosides, including almonds and other related species, such as apricot kernels, the seeds of which are eaten by humans as food and flavouring constituents of amaretto, amaretti, marzipan, etc. Clover, can also be cyanogenic, but is a valuable forage crop, etc. The fact that these plants are cyanogenic is not sufficient to label them as "toxic" in the lead, especially when there is no qualifying information in the body of the article. To whom or to what are they toxic?, in what circumstances are they cyanogenic? Would humans need to be concerned about the cyanogenic activity of Triglochin maritima? I am not aware that it forms part of human diet, but farmers may want to keep their animals from grazing it. I would not object to you writing a balanced section of the article stating under what circumstances readers need to be concerned about the cyanogenic activity of Triglochin, with reliable sources. However, the opening sentences of the lead are not the place to label the plant as toxic without specifying context. The lead is supposed to be a summary of main points made in the body of the article.
As for the name, there are several synonyms for Triglochin maritima, (see e.g. http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl1.1/search?q=triglochin+maritima) but in plant articles these are typically listed in the taxobox or species box, and not listed in the opening sentences of the lead. Again, if the naming needs to be discussed or explained in extenso then it would be appropriate to do that in a section of the article, not in the lead.
Finally, if there is more to be discussed on these topics, it would be appropriate to do so on the article's talk page rather than on mine, so that other editors can join the discussion. Plantsurfer 06:26, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
