Importing national built heritage registers into Wikidata[edit]

Hi all

I'm working on the Connected Open Heritage project which plans to upload national built heritage registers to Wikidata (these are often the lists that WLM is based upon in each country). The first step is to create a worldwide list of built heritage registers on Wikipedia, we would really like your help in completing this list with your local knowledge. It should only take a few minutes to fill the information in for each country if you know who produces the information.

Thanks very much

I've taken the liberty of adding links to two redlists of missing female architects to the WP:ARCH mainpage. Both are part of theWomen in Red initiative, aimed at correcting the distressing imbalance of male and female biographies on wikipedia, currently in a ratio of 84:16.
I hope members of this project will continue to put time towards Women in Red even after the close of this month's editathon. thanks --Tagishsimon (talk) 23:02, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

New user[edit]

New user Danalynnh just edited the Wikipedia article on lighting. Can anyone here please comment on this person's talk page? This person is a librarian and is learning about Wikipedia for themselves and their library guests. Blue Rasberry (talk) 17:00, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Done. The edit was reverted for WP:TRIVIA, which is right, but also a shame. --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:15, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Fiesole Cathedral[edit]

It should have more info added. There should be a link for basilica floorplan, nave, martyrdom, Gothic medallions, vault, Bishop Jacopo the Bavarian, frescoes, Salutati Chapel, and bishop Leonardo Salutati. Its is organized nicely and has pictures. Jhhistorystudent (talk) 00:18, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Can anyone find a ref for Opus emplectum?[edit]

Tagged as unreferenced since 2009. I see some mentions in few books, so it does not seem like an outright hoax, but I cannot find any source actually defining (explaining) this. Can anyone find a source? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:26, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

I've added a ref, though I cannot get the 'collaboration' parameter to work sensibly in {{cite book}}. --Tagishsimon (talk) 02:38, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Francis Fleetwood[edit]

Hello. I recently created Francis Fleetwood, who designed over 200 mansions in The Hamptons. Perhaps if some editors here want to expand the article, we could take it to DYK.Zigzig20s (talk) 01:08, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey Proposal to Revive Popular Pages[edit]

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Architecture Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 17:52, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
