Charles Irving Elliott[edit]

Would you mind looking over the Charles Irving Elliott article to see if it fits in the WikiProject Hawaii scope? Thank you KlausVonVilver (talk) 05:09, 18 October 2018 (UTC):

KlausVonVilver It certainly fits into WikiProject Hawaii, as well as WikiProject Aviation. I've added both project banners to the talk page. Thank you for contributing this article. — Maile (talk) 11:20, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format[edit]

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

Editathon at the Hawaii Library Association Conference[edit]

Aloha everyone! I just wanted to give everyone a head's up that Mkahili (talk · contribs) and I are going to do a short editathon as part of our presentation at the Hawaii Library Association Conference on 11/17. Attendees will be working mostly on library science and Hawaii-related articles, so please don't WP:Bite, and feel free to ping either of us if you notice something amiss that isn't resolved within 15 minutes. Mahalo! Mcampany (talk) 07:22, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Mcampany While I am not able to join in that edithon ... what a coincidence. At the suggestion of KAVEBEAR, the DYK nom Kalākaua's 1874–75 state visit to the United States is scheduled for it's main page slot on November 17. It's the anniversary of the beginning of the king's trip. I look forward to editors in Hawaii tackling all varieties of topics that day. Thanks to you and Mkahili for making this happen. — Maile (talk) 12:27, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
What a wonderful coincidence! I'll be sure to share that with the other participants. I really appreciate all of the hard work you and KAVEBEAR put into important Hawaiian history articles like Liliʻuokalani. Mcampany (talk) 19:30, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

A link to a DAB page[edit]

Kauai links to the DAB page Kamehameha (search for 'disam' in read mode and for '{{d' in edit mode). This was presumably Kamehameha IV or V (1857 or later), but I can't work out which. Can any expert help solve this puzzle? Narky Blert (talk) 10:45, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Don't know if this helps, but Knudsen served in the legislature 1860, 1862, 1868, 1890. — Maile (talk) 19:51, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

He seems to have served in low-level government appointments, such as tax assessor, under Kam IV.
