Participation of women in the Olympics Peer Review[edit]

Hi everyone! I've nominated the article Participation of women in the Olympics for peer review because I want to get it to Good Article status. I nominated it last month, but I didn't get any responses. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Jith12 (talk) 23:15, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Wiki Women in Red - a proposed User Group[edit]

Having worked for 2 years editing articles for Women In Red, a group of organizers have concluded that sourcing is one of the biggest hurdles in creating articles on women and non-binary genders. Though it is true that a lot of sourcing simply doesn’t exist, it is also true that there are sources, but we have no access to them. As these groups did not typically become subjects for academic study until the 1970s, many of the sources are not on line or are behind paywalls. Failure to include women and non-binary people in the encyclopedia presents a one-dimensional view of society and history. To address those issues, we are forming a new User Group aimed at referencing and support for like-minded groups and would appreciate your input or input from your supporters in our organizational process.

WNBA roster templates[edit]

Hello. We seem to have two Los Angeles Sparks roster templates. The first one {{Los Angeles Sparks roster}} is fine, but {{Los Angeles Sparks current roster}} at the bottom of pages is wrong. Where does this data come from? -SusanLesch (talk) 00:45, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm going cross-eyed so am not sure but think the Washington Mystics have the same error. -SusanLesch (talk) 00:55, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Too bad but this project seems dormant. Kindly ping me if anyone comes back. -SusanLesch (talk) 13:59, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

───────────────────────── Fixed for now. Happy to hear from someone here. The problem seems to be that one template is in alpha order by last name, and the other one is in numerical order by player number. -SusanLesch (talk) 19:44, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
