Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Missouri/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Missouri/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 00:30, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

BLP Missouri politician[edit]

I just found this article: Wes Shoemaker. I googled but found nothing and he isn't listed on any of the state's legislative lists. Could the article just be old, or is it wrong, or am I wrong? Any assistance would be great. Outback the koala (talk) 05:07, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

sorry, it just a double article. Here the actual one: Wes Shoemyer. Outback the koala (talk) 05:08, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that Outback. I've been reworking the correct one, Wes ShoeMYER, but nver knew there was an orphan out there with his last name spelled wrong. I don't have any experience with getting an entire Wiki deleted. Can someone on the WikiMissouri project help? Just make sure to delete Wes Shoemaker and NOT Wes Shoemyer lol! Much thanks!

I put it for afd at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wes Shoemaker. Outback the koala (talk) 05:46, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Problem solved. One of the head honcho editors deleted the Shoemaker wiki. All is well again.Sector001 (talk) 18:24, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Wiki's for Missouri politicians[edit]

Hi folks. I've been working on expanding existing Wiki's for Mo. government officials and creating ones for those that were lacking (i.e. Walter Naylor Davis). I've been tagging them as unassessed. Do I do the assessing (doesn't seem right) or is there a committee of some sort that does that? This is a new area for me so I'm a bit confuzzled. Here are some I created besides Davis -- Mike Parson (politician), Jay Wasson, Mike Kehoe, Dan W. Brown (politician), Jason T. Smith (politician), Tishaura Jones. My goal was to at least have a Wiki for all the current leadership of the Mo. General Assembly. Hope I've not made a mess of things or more work for others =)Feedback? Advice? Sector001 (talk) 19:31, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

You can assess it as long as you don't call it a GA or FA, etc. without going through the proper review processes. If an article you create is start-class, just mark it as such; it saves time for others. Regarding the actual articles you created, there are citation templates available to format the references in a standard format. You can use {{cite book}}, {{cite web}}, etc. between the <ref> and </ref> instead of a plain link ( , etc.). If you go through your created articles and do this, they will look much nicer! Also, if you didn't know, the did you know process lets you get your created articles on the Main Page. The basic requirements are: 1 article must be at least 1500 characters or prose long, not including references or lists, etc.; 2 OR article must have been expanded with new text at least five times the amount of prose characters before OR two times the amount of prose characters before if the article is about a living person; 3 the article must be nominated for did you know within five days of its creation or expansion; 4 the article must not have any maintenance/cleanup tags on it or be very lacking in references/other serious issues. Full rules are at this page; you should consider nominating for DYK the next time you create an article as it gives exposure tor your work. Cheers, /ƒETCHCOMMS/ 01:58, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Peabody Energy cont.[edit]

As I have a WP:COI with this article, I posted about earlier revisions to the Peabody Energy article on this WikiProject’s talk page and was hoping someone might again be willing to take a look at some additional revisions I proposed to the article's Black Mesa controversy section. Thanks for your time. JamesClyde (talk) 15:08, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Thomas Eagleton[edit]

It seems we have it that Eagleton served as Lieutenant Governor and US Senator, concurrently from December 1968 to January 1969. Is this actually correct? GoodDay (talk) 00:24, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Photos of County Courthouses[edit]

Cole County MO Courthouse 20140920-1.jpg

I have a personal project concerned with gathering/taking quality photographs of all county courthouses in Missouri. The page I use to organize this is in the User namespace at User:Kbh3rd/Courthouses. As the map there shows, any help from folks in the western or south-western parts of the state would be a boon. If you upload a courthouse picture, please do so to Commons. If you'd take the time to notify me of any additions so that I can update the map and table, I'd surely appreciate it. --Kbh3rdtalk 00:26, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Help needed from K.C[edit]

Missouri Courthouses photo status Kbh3rd.png

I made a few long road trips this summer & fall and removed a lot of red from this map. But I don't know when I'd ever make it up to Rock Port. Help with that and some of the others in the Kansas City orbit would sure be appreciated.

There's also that swath from Vienna to Osceola. I might arrange a pleasant springtime drive for those if they're not taken care of by then. --Kbh3rdtalk 16:16, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

Heritage Home Group[edit]

I proposed a split because this company is not the same one previously called Furniture Brands International. There was a mistake in one of my sources and I wasn't sure what the policy was. I have finally decided since the companies are separate there should be two articles. Any objections?

Also, Furniture Brands should remain in WikiProject Missouri but Heritage spent only a short time there. It has moved to North Carolina.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:19, 9 December 2015 (UTC)


Eminem, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for a community good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article. Snuggums (talk / edits) 05:17, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Missing Missouri Supreme Court Justices[edit]

Drafts have been created for dozens of missing Missouri Supreme Court Justices at Wikipedia:WikiProject Missing encyclopedic articles/United States state supreme court justices#Missouri. Please feel free to complete these drafts and move them to mainspace. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Cheers! bd2412 T 00:09, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 01:16, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Wings of Hope (charity)[edit]

Would someone from WP:MO mind taking a look at Wings of Hope (charity) and assessing it? Also, the sourcing seems a bit weak, so I'm not sure if it satisfies WP:ORG. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:27, 2 August 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 15:19, 1 November 2016 (UTC)
