ATTN: EDITORS RE: Draft:Elsa Miranda - noted Puerto Rican and Argentinian vocalist, actress and recording artist during the early 20th century[edit]

Hola Fellow Wikipedians - If an Editor or Administrator is free, the draft Draft:Elsa Miranda appears to be ready for a move from draft space to main-page space. Perhaps an Editor or Administrator is available to assist or expedite the move in the days ahead? A similar page elready exists in Italian (it:Elsa Miranda) and Spanish (es:Elsa Miranda). Many thanks once again for your kind and thoughtful assistance and best wishes for your continued success in the future. With best regards 104.207.219.150 (talk) 16:07, 19 March 2018 (UTC)PS

  • Very, very nice article. It is now in the mainspace. Thank you. Tony the Marine (talk) 05:16, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Ciao Tony - Many thanks for your kind words and thoughtful assistance with this article. It was a pleasure for me to help. If you enjoyed reading about this era, you might also enjoy the following articles about musicians and composers from Latin America, Mexico, Italy, Argentina and the USA who endeavored to promote peace in the Americas and in Europe through their broadcasts of Latin American music on Voice of America (from the CBS broadcast center in New York City) during World War II. They included: Juan Arvizu, Nestor Mesta Chayres, Eva Garza, Alfredo Antonini, Terig Tucci, John Serry Sr. and Viva America. I hope that you enjoy reading about their efforts to promote peace in the world through cultural exchange and a shared respect for all cultural heritages as much as I enjoyed preserving their work for future generations of readers on Wikipedia. Once again, many thanks for your kind words and best wishes for the continued success of your outstanding contributions to Wikipedia in the future. With best regards 104.207.219.150 (talk) 21:06, 23 March 2018 (UTC)PS
Gracias otra vez. It was a pleasure to do your asking. Wikipedia needs more people like you who are willing to make others understand that just because we are Latinos, does not mean that we are not talented and that we have not made positive contributions to society with the understanding that we want to make this world a better place for humanity.

Ciao Tony - Many thanks again for your very kind compliments! --Your thoughts reminded me of the kindness, graciousness and generosity of spirit (even when faced with adversity) exhibited by an outstanding operatic singer who performed extensively at the Metropolitan Opera House during the early 1960's in New York city (many moons ago during my younger days) -- Martina Arroyo - a gifted soprano who was instrumental in overcoming racial prejudice and intolerance in the opera world even as she dazzled her audiences with her musical talents! I've added a WikiProject Puerto Rico template to her talk page in case you have some extra time to incorporate her biography into your project. Thanks again for you help and Happy Easter104.207.219.150 (talk) 21:09, 26 March 2018 (UTC)PS

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProject[edit]

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.

Background[edit]

On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:52, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Articles on the Navy bombardment and other exercises on Culebra[edit]

The main article on Culebra (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culebra,_Puerto_Rico#Navy_Culebra_protests) has a section on the bombardment of Culebra by the Navy. A very similar (secondary) article appears under the title of Navy-Culebra Protests (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navy%E2%80%93Culebra_protests). A few weeks ago, and before reading the main article, I read the secondary article and noticed important omissions, most notably citations to and summaries of the monographs by then mayor of Culebra (R. Feliciano) and by R. Copaken, the lawyer who worked closely with the mayor and other PR authorities to bring an end to the exercises. I modified the secondary article accordingly. Now, after reading the main article, it seems to me that the separate article should be merged/incorporated into the main article. I propose to do this soon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marc Shulman (talkcontribs) 15:01, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Hello?[edit]

Is there anybody here? In ictu oculi (talk) 21:07, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm here. I have a question regarding article importance (top, high, mid, low etc.) because I'm creating the barrios articles.

1) So what do you think the importance would be of the barrios, mid or low? 2) What do you think the importance should be on the talk page of the municipalities, mid or high? Some are marked with a low importance, exhibit a: Aibonito, Puerto Rico. I think every municipality should at least be of mid importance and I prefer municipalities be of high importance. There's no consistency right now. Look at Lajas, that one says high importance. I think municipalities should be at least high and of course San Juan is top.

  • Top - San Juan, Ponce
  • High - other municipalities
  • Mid - barrios???
  • Low - barrios???

I'd be interested in your opinion on this. Thanks. --the eloquent peasant (talk) 10:57, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

  • I think that your contributions in regard to the barrios is wonderful. The importance of a municipality and barrios very. It all depends on the historical significance and impact it has had on the island and it's people, plus the article should be a complete article and not a "stub". One example of an important barrio is "Bartolo" de Lares. It has a wonderful history which involves the "Grito de Lares" revolution. plus you have a very important notable person who was born there, Jose Feliciano. Therefore, the level of importance of the barrio depends on various factors, historic importance is the most important of all. the eloquent peasant you are an amazing educator, we need more people like you here. Tony the Marine (talk) 20:26, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
OK. That makes sense and thank you for the compliment. Tony, as always, it's nice to see you. --the eloquent peasant (talk) 20:56, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks so much for the barnstar. Every December I work on a big project 'cause work is slow in December and I need to keep busy. So I was so happy to discover this project!--the eloquent peasant (talk) 22:56, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Help with an article?[edit]

There's an article for a short story up for deletion and a quick search shows that there does appear to be coverage, but it's all in Spanish. Can someone who is fluent help look for coverage and if anything is usable, add it to the article? I'm going to keep searching, but I thought it would be better to get someone else to help as well. The article in question is La muñeca menor. I don't know if it's ultimately a notable short story, but I figure that it'd be better to give it more of a fighting chance. --ReaderofthePack(formerly Tokyogirl79) (。◕‿◕。) 20:00, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

I did some updating but my head was not completely into writing prose tonight. Thanks much for bringing this to our attention. That was helpful. --the eloquent peasant (talk) 03:32, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
