North and South Okanagan pages[edit]

Please see Wikipedia_talk:Canadian_Wikipedians'_notice_board#South_Okanagan_and_North_Okanagan. Note also I just stripped the "visitor attractions" from articles that were not visitor attractions.Skookum1 (talk) 05:25, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Inkaneep and Nk'mip - Inkameep?[edit]

Inkaneep Provincial Park is south of Okanagan Falls, Inkaneep is between Oliver and Osoyoos though on the Osoyoos IR No.1, but isn't there an "Inkameep" campground at the SE corner of the Canadian portion of Osoyoos Lake, right below Nk'mip Wines and the Desert Centre, run by the band? And "Inkameep" is the old anglicization for Nk'mip, right? Was confused today when creating the article stub for Inkaneep, British Columbia from BC Names but I see now that 'm' makes all the difference. Just checking though; not often BC Names is in error,but sometimes they are.Skookum1 (talk) 10:46, 26 April 2013 (UTC)


I've boldly added the American counties of Ferry, Douglas and Grant. Although they are not part of Okanogan County itself, they are part of the general region, the Okanogan Country (or Okanogan Valley). However, only some portions of these counties are, with the exception of Ferry. See here I'm just offering an explanation. TBrandley (TCB) 15:55, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.
