Vandalism notice[edit]

FYI, I reverted vandalism by an IP editor at the article History of the Philippines (1965–86). Other edits might be made to insert the attempted breakaway unrecognized nation of Bangsamoro Republik elsewhere into Philippine related articles. Please keep your eyes open.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 05:00, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Please vote in this year's WMF Board election![edit]

Hi everybody. You are all encouraged to vote in this year's Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election, where three seats are up for election. The Foundation is hoping to see increased turnout from the developing world, so hopefully Filipino Wikipedians will go out and vote. You should see banners around Wikipedia encouraging you to vote—if you haven't yet, please do so! :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 17:40, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

(P.S.: I am running in the election, but please vote with your conscience as to who you think is worthy of your vote.)

  • Done. Congrats for making the cut in this board election, eventhough I hardly know what wikimedia does or what it's for. You deserved it though. Good luck from SSC Samahan.--RioHondo (talk) 18:02, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
    • No celebrating yet until I actually win a seat—until then, let's hope for the best and I hope you'll help get other Filipino Wikipedians to vote! ;) (Also, crash course: the Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit that runs Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects.) --Sky Harbor (talk) 18:37, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Done voting. Good luck to all the candidates, especially to Sky Harbor :) --- Tito Pao (talk) 15:20, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site[edit]

Could someone please take a look at this and see if it is viable? Many thanks.

User:Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site (now at Draft:Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site)

Anna Frodesiak (talk) 11:05, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Interesting article. Just make sure there's no overlap between that and Prehistory of Laguna (province) which was initially created under Archaeology of Pila, Laguna. If it's possible to merge the two to make it more comprehensive, please do so. Btw, i notice a sudden proliferation of topics related to archaeology and prehistories of places in the Philippines. I wonder if this is the work of the same group or some wikiproject?--RioHondo (talk) 11:58, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I will stay out of this. I just posted here to let you all know. Please take any action you wish. All the best. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 12:13, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
  • User pages are not allowed to look like articles, see WP:FAKEARTICLE. Moreover, there is also Archaeology of Pinagbayanan, which seems to be very similar. Someone is really pushing to get this info on WP. All 3 articles are created within days of each other by all new users. Sock puppets? This is a mess that requires cleaning up, preferably by TNT. -- P 1 9 9   14:45, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I think we should assume good faith here. Before suggesting that the accounts are socks, we ought to consider that they may be students working on assignments together.

Also, User:Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site could be considered a draft, and not a fake article. I will tag it or maybe move it to AFC.

I will write to the users and ask what is going on.

Here is a list of known articles and drafts:

Feel free to add to the lists above.

I just moved User:Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site to Draft:Laguna de Bay Archaeological Site.

I just posted at the 5 users' talk pages inviting them to join this discussion. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:30, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

  • You're right. They may be a group of students working on assignments on the same subject. I just hope they work together and collaborate so they don't end up creating identical articles. We need someone who can consolidate those related articles, preferrably having only one prehistory/archaeology topic per province (i.e, there's no need for separate articles on the province (Laguna), the municipality (Pila, Laguna), and the village in that municipality (Pinagbayanan).--RioHondo (talk) 01:55, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
