Your GA nomination of Holocene (Portland, Oregon)Edit

The article Holocene (Portland, Oregon) you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold  . The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Holocene (Portland, Oregon) for issues which need to be addressed. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Harrias -- Harrias (talk) 11:01, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Harrias, Thanks! Addressing your concerns now... ---Another Believer (Talk) 11:22, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
All sorted, good work on this. Harrias talk 11:54, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

BTW, on the off-chance you're interested, I've also nominated Theodore Roosevelt Memorial (Portland, Oregon) for GA status, and co-nominated United Nations Plaza (San Francisco) (which was mostly written by another editor) as well. ---Another Believer (Talk) 11:43, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

I'm just wrapping up a few things ahead of going away tomorrow, but I'll bear them in mind when I'm back. Harrias talk 11:54, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – October 2019Edit

Extended content

News and updates for administrators from the past month (September 2019).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion, a new criterion for speedy category renaming was added: C2F: One eponymous article, which applies if the category contains only an eponymous article or media file, provided that the category has not otherwise been emptied shortly before the nomination. The default outcome is an upmerge to the parent categories.

  Technical news

  • As previously noted, tighter password requirements for Administrators were put in place last year. Wikipedia should now alert you if your password is less than 10 characters long and thus too short.

  Arbitration

  Miscellaneous

  • The Community Tech team has been working on a system for temporarily watching pages, and welcomes feedback.

Your draft article, Draft:Unfollow the RulesEdit

  Resolved
Extended content
 

Hello, Another Believer. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "Unfollow the Rules".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thank you for your submission to Wikipedia! CptViraj (📧) 09:45, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

CptViraj, I've requested restoration. ---Another Believer (Talk) 13:45, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Archiving talk pagesEdit

Hi, just a heads up that your use of OneClickArchiver has resulted in some single post talk archives for WikiProject Biography: see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography/Archive 66, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography/Archive 67, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography/Archive 68, Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Biography/Archive 70. Discussions on that page are automatically archived by lowercase sigmabot III so there hould be little need to archive any manually. PC78 (talk) 08:18, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Editing News #2 – Mobile editing and talk pages – October 2019Edit

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

Inside this newsletter, the Editing team talks about their work on the mobile visual editor, on the new talk pages project, and at Wikimania 2019.

HelpEdit

What talk page interactions do you remember? Is it a story about how someone helped you to learn something new? Is it a story about how someone helped you get involved in a group? Something else? Whatever your story is, we want to hear it!

Please tell us a story about how you used a talk page. Please share a link to a memorable discussion, or describe it on the talk page for this project. The team would value your examples. These examples will help everyone develop a shared understanding of what this project should support and encourage.

Talk PagesEdit

The Talk Pages Consultation was a global consultation to define better tools for wiki communication. From February through June 2019, more than 500 volunteers on 20 wikis, across 15 languages and multiple projects, came together with members of the Foundation to create a product direction for a set of discussion tools. The Phase 2 Report of the Talk Page Consultation was published in August. It summarizes the product direction the team has started to work on, which you can read more about here: Talk Page Project project page.

The team needs and wants your help at this early stage. They are starting to develop the first idea. Please add your name to the "Getting involved" section of the project page, if you would like to hear about opportunities to participate.

Mobile visual editorEdit

The Editing team is trying to make it simpler to edit on mobile devices. The team is changing the visual editor on mobile. If you have something to say about editing on a mobile device, please leave a message at Talk:VisualEditor on mobile.

Edit CardsEdit

 
What happens when you click on a link. The new Edit Card is bigger and has more options for editing links.

ToolbarEdit

 
The editing toolbar is changing in the mobile visual editor. The old system had two different toolbars. Now, all the buttons are together. Tell the team what you think about the new toolbar.
  • In September, the Editing team updated the mobile visual editor's editing toolbar. Anyone could see these changes in the mobile visual editor.
    • One toolbar: All of the editing tools are located in one toolbar. Previously, the toolbar changed when you clicked on different things.
    • New navigation: The buttons for moving forward and backward in the edit flow have changed.
    • Seamless switching: an improved workflow for switching between the visual and wikitext modes.
  • Feedback: You can try the refreshed toolbar by opening the mobile VisualEditor on a smartphone. Please post your feedback on the Toolbar feedback talk page.

WikimaniaEdit

The Editing Team attended Wikimania 2019 in Sweden. They led a session on the mobile visual editor and a session on the new talk pages project. They tested two new features in the mobile visual editor with contributors. You can read more about what the team did and learned in the team's report on Wikimania 2019.

Looking aheadEdit

  • Talk Pages Project: The team is thinking about the first set of proposed changes. The team will be working with a few communities to pilot those changes. The best way to stay informed is by adding your username to the list on the project page: Getting involved.
  • Testing the mobile visual editor as the default: The Editing team plans to post results before the end of the calendar year. The best way to stay informed is by adding the project page to your watchlist: VisualEditor as mobile default project page.
  • Measuring the impact of Edit Cards: The Editing team hopes to share results in November. This study asks whether the project helped editors add links and citations. The best way to stay informed is by adding the project page to your watchlist: Edit Cards project page.

2019 US Banknote ContestEdit

Extended content
  US Banknote Contest  
November-December 2019

There are an estimated 30,000 different varieties of United States banknotes, yet only a fraction of these are represented on Wikimedia Commons in the form of 2D scans. Additionally, Colonial America, the Confederate States, the Republic of Texas, multiple states and territories, communities, and private companies have issued banknotes that are in the public domain today but are absent from Commons.

In the months of November and December, WikiProject Numismatics will be running a cross-wiki upload-a-thon, the 2019 US Banknote Contest. The goal of the contest is to increase the number of US banknote images available to content creators on all Wikimedia projects. Participants will claim points for uploading and importing 2D scans of US banknotes, and at the end of the contest all will receive awards. Whether you want to claim the Gold Wiki or you just want to have fun, all are invited to participate.


If you do not want to receive invitations to future US Banknote Contests, follow the instructions here

Miss'd AmericaEdit

Miss'd America was just listed as a good article, but Legobot appears to have processed this incorrectly, removing the entry from WP:GAN as "maintenance" rather than "passed". Have you seen this sort of thing happen before? Is it possible the bot will catch its own error, or is it acceptable in this case to add the GA icon to the article manually? Armadillopteryxtalk 02:44, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Newbie to Wikipedia: Help on an article!Edit

Hello Another Believer,

I am a student in the Poverty, Justice, and Human Capabilities class organized by the user DStrassmann as part of a course at Rice University. My professor suggested that I contact you for your expertise in editing articles over your many years at Wikipedia. Currently, I am working on homophobia in ethnic minority communities. I am worried about my contributions being taken down for sounding too much like a term paper, and would appreciate help in making my language sound as encyclopedic as possible. Let me know when you've got time to look over the information in my sandbox!

Thank you,Wuchrist (talk) 04:59, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Wuchrist, Thanks for the heads up! I see you've started moving content over to the live page. I'll take a look, but you're going about this the right way in terms of adding text in pieces for easier editor review, and posting notes to Talk:Homophobia in ethnic minority communities to encourage editor engagement and discussion of specific topics and ways to improve the entry. That'll be the best place to suggest improvements and talk to other community members, and if you're seeking feedback from others, you might consider posting notes on the talk pages of Wikipedia:WikiProject Discrimination and/or Wikipedia:WikiProject LGBT studies. Thanks for working to make Wikipedia better! ---Another Believer (Talk) 14:53, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Disruptive editing at Aja (drag queen)Edit

Not sure why it's been so bad for the past 24 hours, but I'm already at three reverts and so am hesitant to continue—I feel like the edits constitute a BLP issue/vandalism (all are certainly unsourced and IMO non-constructive), but perhaps someone else would disagree.

Nice stuff!Edit

Hey, A.B. I love the additional material that you archived on the Talk page of The Great God Pan (sculpture), and I'm incorporating some of it into the article. I've found some original sources that contradict the author's claim that only the plaster version was exhibited, and I added notes quoting them. Lorado Taft wrote a gentle but precise criticism of the sculpture's modeling. And I haven't found confirmation yet that it was exhibited at St. Louis in 1904. More to do.

BoringHistoryGuy, Great! I'm traveling currently, but will definitely take a look very soon. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 21:01, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
The catalogue of the art gallery at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair lists only one work by Barnard -- The Hewer.[1] That doesn't mean that The Great God Pan couldn't have been exhibited in, say, the New York State Building or elsewhere. But I'm inclined to guess that Pan wasn't there. Best, == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:33, 8 November 2019 (UTC)
I think it was better before. "Inscriptions" had its own heading, it wasn't under "History," == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 03:27, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
BoringHistoryGuy, I disagree, because there should be more than just mention of the inscriptions, but you've been putting in the most work here so I'll let you change. I've written quite a few Good articles about works of art and "Description", "History", and "Reception" sections are all very common. ---Another Believer (Talk) 03:33, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
I wasn't disputing adding a Description section. I was pointing out that Inscriptions was not under the History heading. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 03:44, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
BoringHistoryGuy, Ah, I see, sorry for the misunderstanding. Usually the order of sections is Description, History, then Reception, but like I said I'll just let you do your thing. Won't be an issue unless you're going for GA status and want the article to be similar to those. Happy editing! ---Another Believer (Talk) 04:08, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
The Description section could also come first. Describe it to your heart's content. But I think Inscriptions works better as its own subheading. == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 04:18, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

I still haven't been able to find confirmation that The Great God Pan was exhibited at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. Barnard was a judge of sculpture, so he wasn't in competition for awards. The Hewer is listed in the catalogue of the Art Gallery, but nothing else by him. Pennsylvania claimed him as a favorite son, and The Hewer was illustrated in volume 2 of Pennsylvania at the World's Fair, but no mention of Pan. His parents were living in Illinois by then, but no mention of him in the Illinois at the fair book; and he was living in NYC by then, but no mention in the New York at the fair book.
I did find a photo of Pan at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, which I added to the article == BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 20:08, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

No worries; done. I've removed the 'term paper' cleanup tag but the other issues still stand. I've also maked some problems with inline templates. Good luck with the article, Cheers, Baffle☿gab 04:48, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Harvard gatesEdit

Thanks very much for your work on Boston-area buildings and monuments and so on -- particularly your quite good images. I have a request, and a proposal.

The request is that seen at Talk:Statue_of_John_Harvard#Photo_ideas, though I think better than a closeup would be a retake of File:JohnHarvardShinyFoot24June07.jpg more carefully done so that the inscription shows clearly, if that's possible. But be sure to include the window (or the window over J.H.'s other shoulder, if the lighting is more favorable or whatever) to serve the caption.

The proposal is that we collaborate on List of gates of Harvard Yard, which I stubbed at [2]. If you'll take the photos I can do the text. And if you're a glutton for punishment, List_of_Harvard_College_freshman_dormitories and Category:Harvard_Houses need a lot of improvement, image-wise. EEng 05:32, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

EEng, Thanks! I was in Boston/Cambridge recently for a conference. I'm still in the process of uploading my photographs from the trip, including some of the Harvard gates, but I can't really respond to image requests since I don't live locally. I am very interested in the Harvard gates list, and even creating new stubs for specific gates. I will be traveling again soon, but I will keep this on my radar and continue uploading and organizing my pictures at commons:User:Another_Believer/Boston and commons:User:Another Believer/Cambridge, Massachusetts. I have hundreds more to share. ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:47, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
Great work! I don't have a good camera and anyway I'm not a very good photographer. If you'll be returning to Cambridge at some point contact me and perhaps I'll have some suggestions. Offhand I didn't see any MIT pics so there's fertile ground there, and in particular we could use a better version of File:MIT_RageWarehouseIreProof.jpg (about which I plan to write a short article).
At the link above the gates are listed in circumferential order (I think) so if the spirit moves you, you could make a complete round. Thanks again for all your hard work! EEng 17:32, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
EEng, Yup, I've already left Boston/Cambridge and I don't have plans to revisit, so I can't really honor requests but I'll continue to upload my photographs at the aforementioned links. I've also watchlisted your sandbox with the gates list, which I'm looking forward to seeing expanded. ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:33, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for adding all those images! EEng 17:40, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
EEng, Sure thing! I'll add more as I continue uploading and labeling my photographs. ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:41, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
If you want, you could move/copy content over to Draft:Harvard Yard gates or Draft:List of Harvard Yard gates so other editors might help out. ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:43, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
I want to hold it close for now because I've got a lot on my plate for the foreseeable future, and I intend it to be a DYK, which has that stupid 7-day rule. If someone moves the draft to live the 7-day clock starts. Once I've got time I'll get the hardcopy sources and get going. EEng 20:12, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
