Malia O Ka Malu[edit]

See Talk:Malia O Ka Malu § Translations needed for proper description.

Malia O Ka Malu is clearly "Maria [something]", not literally "Our Lady of Peace"— maybe "Maria the Peacemaker"?; I don't know. Malia o ka Malu Hale Pule Nu is "Maria [something longer]". Can a Hawaiian-speaker please provide accurate translations for these names? Please {{Ping}} me to discuss. --Thnidu (talk) 01:17, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

US 50,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject United States/The 50,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more states than they might otherwise work on. If there's the interest I will start 1000 State Challenges like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of states regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for the US and your specialist/home state like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every state, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any state sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thankyou.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:13, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

New article Cannabis in Hawaii[edit]

I just started Cannabis in Hawaii as part of my general campaign to have a cannabis article for each state. I've got the main details on the 2010 MMJ program, but I think the article could definitely use some expanding about the uniqueness of Hawaii's cannabis culture, how it got there, its financial and social impact, etc. Just listing here since someone might find it an interesting challenge.

Could someone take a look at Talk:Haole please. I made a comment on the page, then noticed that an anonymous editor had used a cite book template, causing a reference to appear at the bottom of the page, which I think tends to discourage any further comments. I don't want to edit someone else's post so maybe an admin could take a look at it. Piwaiwaka (talk) 22:52, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done easy fix! — Maile (talk) 23:08, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks !!! Piwaiwaka (talk) 23:56, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
@KAVEBEAR: @Maile66: @Piwaiwaka: There is actually a way to have the reference appear within the section, so I converted it to that. The way to do this is to use the |group= parameter in both the <ref> tag & {{reflist}} template., such as:
  • <ref group="Remove unsourced section">
  • {{Reflist|group="Remove unsourced section"}}
I took the liberty of putting this construct into the Talk:Haole#Remove unsourced section discussion.
