Dev920 (talk · contribs)[edit]

Vote count: 32

OK. I'll start the ball rolling. A few months ago this project had very much lost momentum and was virtually dead in the water. Dev920 resurrected it and has kick-started a number of brilliant initiatives. Over 80 people have joined the project since then. The project pages have been updated and the portal is looking pretty good. Dev920 has started a vast number of initiatives to keep people involved and focus efforts. Notable examples include Jumpaclass and Peer review. I cannot even guess how many articles have been tagged since she joined (though someone is bound to tell me shortly). Her enthousiasm for new ideas appears boundless and her guidance has been inspirational. In my opinion she already acts as this project's coordinator and deserves to be recognised as such.

Comments and questions

  1. Clarification The nomination implies that this project was started but lost momentum. As you can tell from its edit history, this project NEVER had momentum until recently. A handful of Wikipedia veterans who were too busy with other obligations created the bare bones of this project and the LGBT portal as stubs (or listed our names in support) in hope that someone (or a group of someones) would step up and take them over. They have. Great job all. Davodd 20:07, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
