Conflicting sources on birth date of John Penn ("the American")

I have found conflicting sources on John Penn's birth date, and have started a discussion at WP:RSN#Birth date of John Penn ("the American"). Please comment there.

Draft article for David Trone


On behalf of David Trone and Hickman Analytics, I have submitted a draft article about this American businessman as part of my work at Beutler Ink. Given my conflict of interest, I will not publish the article to the main space and ask independent editors to review this draft for accuracy, neutrality, and verifiability. Is there a WikiProject Pennsylvania participant who will help move the draft into the main space? Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 14:57, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

This draft has been moved into the main space, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 16:45, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

Edit request to update article


Hello, again! I have submitted an edit request to update the Wikipedia article for David Trone, who has roots in Pennsylvania. I've proposed a few updates to the article's "Personal life" section, and suggested a few links for "Further reading" and/or "External links" sections. The proposed additions (which I've outlined here) are not very controversial, in my opinion, but I can't edit the article directly because of my COI and I'm looking for a neutral volunteer who can review the proposed text/links and update the article accordingly. Is a WikiProject Pennsylvania participant willing to help? Inkian Jason (talk) 20:18, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello! An editor has assisted with the first 2 requests outlined here, but there's one part left (#3) and the reviewing person would like more input. Is someone able to take a look at the proposed text, and update the article appropriately? Inkian Jason (talk) 16:43, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
The edit request has been answered, so I am marking this section as resolved. Thanks! Inkian Jason (talk) 17:11, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Pocono Mountains

The current Pocono Mountains page is filled with errors, inconsistencies, broken links, and missing citations. I would like to replace it. How do I go about that, knowing that I don't know the writing rules? 01:55, 2 April 2017 (UTC) Norm Mikalac — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikalac (talkcontribs) 01:55, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Pennsylvania/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Pennsylvania.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Pennsylvania, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Another Project Proposal

I am proposing a grant to fund a Wikipedian in Residence at the University of Pittsburgh to facilitate the transfer of historical content contained in the University's archives and collections into Wikimedia projects. I am currently the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar with the Library and Archives of the University of Pittsburgh and have discovered the wealth of content related to historical women that resides in the Archives and Library collections. Your support is solicited for the Project Grant that can be seen here. Part of the grant-making process requires notification of those who would like to support this project.

I am the potential grantee and believe that being in the position of Wikipedian-in-Resident will make a significant improvement to contributions to Pennsylvania topics. My editing history already demonstrates my commitment to creating content on topics related to women. As a Wikipedian-in-Residence I would be training new and experienced contributors and highlight the available resources contained in the archives and collections at the University that will improve the content on Pennsylvania.

I know the potential for the improvement and addition of content is great. Not only is your support requested but I would be very, very grateful to any other editors who can identify topics that need to be addressed and topics that need improvement. All advice is sincerely welcome. Thank you for your consideration.
