Importance[edit]

Apparently your assessment needed list does not cover articles with a missing importance. My DIY attempt failed unsurprisingly, but born 1950 and first female bass guitar rock star might be in scope for your project. –84.46.52.217 (talk) 05:37, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Well, no. That is because the category is purely for those pages where |class= is blank or absent. The equivalent category that shows where |importance= is blank or absent is Category:Unknown-importance Women's History articles, and that is where Talk:Suzi Quatro presently appears, since this edit by FlightTime Public (talk · contribs) which set |importance= to a blank. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:23, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I missed the critical addition of |importance= in the edit history and didn't know (or forgot) this Unknown-importance category magic. Hopefully |class=c will be reassessed when the |importance= is determined.Face-tongue.svg84.46.53.94 (talk) 08:30, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Resolved: by Knope7, thanks.
Please add Woman of the Year (disambiguation) to some watchlist(s), it was in a seriously silly state. –84.46.52.2 (talk) 21:04, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

Gender feminism merge discussion[edit]

Input is requested for a discussion at Talk:Gender feminism as to whether the contents of Gender feminism should be merged into other existing articles, and if so, whether the page should become a redirect or disambiguation page. Thank you. –Sangdeboeuf (talk) 02:47, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Ella Grasso[edit]

Ella Grasso.jpg

Feb 5 is the 38th anniversary of CT Gov. Ella Grasso's passing. "She was the first woman elected to this office and the first woman to be elected governor of a U.S. state without having been the spouse or widow of a former governor." I am very sad that Ella Grasso is a mere start-class biography considering her long public service and large amount of sources available. Moreover, she was a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient. Jehochman Talk 13:37, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

I like working on articles for American women in government, so I've gone ahead and made some basic changes. I would rate the article as a C. I don't know how much more I will do on this one, but if anyone is interested in collaborating on this article, please let me know. Knope7 (talk) 03:58, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I’m generally interested in articles on Connecticut history. I am also working on Planet Nine which is a current WP:FAC. Once that’s done I could focus on Ella Grasso’s biography. Jehochman Talk 06:29, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

This means that, starting in the next few days or weeks, your assessment tables will be updated using code in the new bot, codenamed Lucky. You can read more about this change on the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial team page. Thanks! audiodude (talk) 05:39, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Spanish women in the Civil War[edit]

Hi. I am trying to work on a series of articles about Spanish women in the Spanish Civil War so I can more easily identify more notable women where articles can be written, and, because unlike some wars (See World War II), women's involvement in this war is almost non-existent. It also seems very important given the upcoming elections, where on both the left and right, the role of women in Spain has become an issue. I am not as familiar with the topic as I would like to be, and I have not really written broad general articles of this sort in quite some time. If anyone can assist in editing articles with me on my user space until the whole series is ready to go, that would be appreciated. (Or is it better to mainspace them even if the whole series is not mainspace ready? Thoughts?) The ones that are feel almost publish ready that could use a second or third look include:

Any assistance appreciated. --LauraHale (talk) 10:10, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Women's History vs. Women[edit]

After figuring out the secrets of {{Vital article}} on talk pages and a quick sanity check (WFM) I wonder why Grace Jones born 1948 is covered by the Women project, while Suzi Quatro born 1950 is covered by this project. Is that as it should be, e.g., nobody cares as long as it is not less and not more than one of both projects, and the historic person is still alive and kicking? That will replace my answered #Importance question, at most one stupid question  makes perfect sense for me.84.46.53.128 (talk) 10:21, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.
