Amtkel Lake[edit]

My attempt at starting a new article about this lake that is on this projects wanted list has been rejected - see Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Amtkel Lake. If anyone on this project can translate further from the Russian, Georgian or Czech articles you might be able to convince the reviewer it is a notable lake. 88.107.41.1 (talk) 19:29, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi and welcome! I think that the topic is notable, but we need to find sources to establish that. I did a quick search and found the following article which seems very relevant, but at the moment I don't have access to it (on Monday I will):
http://www.springerlink.com/content/h27362172766r375/
This article also seems relevant:

I added the sources and more info to the article, resubmitted it and it was accepted. You can find it at Lake Amtkel. sephia karta | dimmi 11:06, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Abaza, an ambigious title[edit]

In Turkish history, there were some important people titled Abaza. (For example Melek Ahmet Pasha). So several times I referred to Abaza people in my edits. I usually took them for Abkhazian people. But, all the same, I must note that there was probably no clear distinction between the Abkhazians and Abazins in minds of contemporary chroniclers. Any idea to whom the title Abaza referred ? Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 13:54, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure, I'd guess he would have been Abkhaz but ideally we would want a source to make that call. Another option would be to link to Abazgi, although that is more of a dictionary entry than a proper article. sephia karta | dimmi 14:53, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

WikiWomen's History Month[edit]

Hi everyone. March is Women's History Month and I'm hoping a few folks here at WP:Abkhazia will have interest in putting on events (on and off wiki) related to women's roles in Abkhazia's history, society and culture. We've created an event page on English Wikipedia (please translate!) and I hope you'll find the inspiration to participate. These events can take place off wiki, like edit-a-thons, or on wiki, such as themes and translations. Please visit the page here: WikiWomen's History Month. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to seeing events take place! SarahStierch (talk) 21:46, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride 2014, a campaign to create and improve LGBT-related content at Wikipedia and its sister projects. The campaign will take place throughout the month of June, culminating with a multinational edit-a-thon on June 21. Meetups are being held in some cities, or you can participate remotely. All constructive edits are welcome in order to contribute to Wikipedia's mission of providing quality, accurate information. Articles within Category:LGBT in Asia may be of particular interest. You can also upload LGBT-related images by participating in Wikimedia Commons' LGBT-related photo challenge. You are encouraged to share the results of your work here. Happy editing! --Another Believer (Talk) 21:21, 5 June 2014 (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.
