New artcile[edit]

Just set up a stub at Keats, Kansas (near Manhattan). If anyone has a photo or more info, please add it. Paulmcdonald 09:21, August 22, 2014‎

Olive Ann Beech[edit]

Could I get someone on the Project to look at the article Olive Ann Beech and assess it for something besides a stub article? I have added extensive copy and it is referenced. Thank you. Cuprum17 (talk) 00:06, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

I bumped existing projects ones up to "Start", since it's obviously at least a "Start" rating, but I didn't move it up higher since I'm not a member of those other projects. I created one for Kansas then ranked it "C", because I feel that any article that ranks "B" or higher should be validated by multiple people before getting such a rank, though I don't know official policy. • SbmeirowTalk • 02:40, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
I don't think anyone has an issue with anyone bumping up a longer article from "Stub" to "Start" without asking. A "Stub" is typically something that is too short and contains almost no text, so anything longer is obviously not a stub, thus automatically deserves no less than "Start", even if you are the one that added most of the text. • SbmeirowTalk • 02:44, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
We made a guide at Wikipedia:WikiProject College football/Assessment for college football articles. you may find it helpful.--Paul McDonald (talk) 15:41, 5 February 2015 (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.

New article Kansas Navy[edit]

As discussed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Kansas/Archive_4#Kansas_Navy.3F, I've created a stub article for this apparently tongue-in-cheek fraternal organization. MatthewVanitas (talk) 08:46, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

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!

Wikipedia:Featured list removal candidates/List of birds of Kansas/archive1[edit]

I have nominated List of birds of Kansas for featured list removal here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets the featured list criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks; editors may declare to "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here.


Hello all! I was curious if anyone else thought it might be a good idea to make a (nonbinding) guideline on how all the individual US state WikiProjects should organize themselves, to help standardize them. I originally put this suggestion in the WikiProject United States talk page, so feel free to look there if you're interested. It's pretty empty though; basically all they said was to see what each of the individual projects thought about it. Please tell me if you have any concerns with this idea; hopefully we can find a way for everyone to love it! Also, I'm new at making proposals, so please forgive me if I do anything silly. :) Hope that you like this idea! JonathanHopeThisIsUnique (talk) 04:55, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
