Comment on the WikiProject X proposal
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)
National symbols of Ecuador
I've just done some copy editing and fixed some apparent vandalism at National symbols of Ecuador. I'd appreciate some expert eyes to check to make sure I reverted to the right versions. Also with the vandalism it's had, it should be on some Ecuadorians' watchlists. Thank you. 17:22, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
WikiProject X is live!
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.

Are these stories all talking about the same Japanese school?
I know there is a part-time Japanese school in Quito. I believe the Spanish name is "Colegio Japonés Auxiliar de Quito" (キト補習授業校).
I found these stories from El Telegráfo:
- "Feria de Japón invita a los ecuatorianos a conocer su cultura (Galería)" (Archive). 6 July 2014. "El evento está organizado por la Embaja de Japón y el Comité de Feria de Japón integrado por el Colegio japonés de Quito."
- "Kendo, el arte de los samurai (Infografía)" (Archive). 3 August 2014. "En Quito, esta práctica se desarrolla desde inicios de la década de los noventas cuando el japonés Keigi Kosakai transmitió sus conocimientos en el Colegio Japonés de Pusuquí."
I know of these articles along with a Japanese one from a Brazilan publication:
- "エクアドル＝キト補習授業校が入学式＝今年から聴講生増やす" - April 18, 2014.
Garish colours in tables, and unnecessary flag icons
Hi, I've looked at a few TV articles. Garish background colours in tables, and unnecessary use of country (and even city) flags in infoboxes. Flags are not decorations on en.WP; they need to be informational, and none I've seen is that. Tony (talk) 04:13, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!
- What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
- When? June 2015
- How can you help?
- 1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
- 2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
- 3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)
Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!
If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.
Thanks, and happy editing!
biased choice of sources
In the entry about the 2015 protests, there is a strong bias towards the use of right-wing anti-government media sources which very probably affect the accuracy and neutrality of the information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Smukster (talk • contribs) 16:54, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
