Speedy deletion nomination of Category:People by university or college in Uttar PradeshEdit

 

A tag has been placed on Category:People by university or college in Uttar Pradesh requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

some watchingEdit

[1] and [2] - might need a watch... JarrahTree 11:44, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

BabiBoi moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, BabiBoi, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

(talk page stalker) @KylieTastic: I'm guessing you forgot to check the page history before doing this? The article was created by Bluerasberry and was well sourced when he moved it to mainspace [3]. Later some newer editors added a lot of unreferenced content and removed the existing references [4]. I've moved it back to mainspace and reverted the addition of unsourced material. – Joe (talk) 12:50, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
Ahhh! @Joe Roe: your right, stupid error, thanks for the catch, and also apologies to Bluerasberry for missing it. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:00, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
@KylieTastic: Thanks for your review. Please keep doing these, no one should mind errors. It is an article at the edge of notability anyway.
@Joe Roe: Thanks for watching and reverting. The article has sources. It is modest and I do not mind anyone's scrutiny of its notability. thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 13:12, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Sun Aug 16: Great American Wiknic NYC & BeyondEdit

August 16, 3pm: Great American Wiknic

You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community for our annual summer Great American Wiknic, this year being held virtually.

We look forward to seeing local Wikimedians, but would also like to invite folks from the greater New York metropolitan area (and beyond!) who might not typically be able to join us in person!

Featuring artist-Wikimedian Sara Clugage's "Picnics: An Outside History" for a cultural exploration of picnicking, knowledge and society during the national panel in the first part. We encourage you to call in for the second part from a local park or natural site and share it on the video stream, as well as sharing your favorite picnic grub or other special foods with us.

Is there a project you'd like to share? A question you'd like answered? A Wiki* skill you'd like to learn? Let us know by adding it to the agenda. The Wiknic is taking the place of "WikiWednesday" this month, so we will also include salon and knowledge-sharing workshop aspects.

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm online via YouTube (watch our national panel's livestream, and participate by text chat)
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm online via Zoom (participate by videoconference with NYC community)

We especially encourage folks to share your parks and foods on screen, and add your 3-minute lightning talks to our roster for the Zoom portion, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues!

(You can subscribe/unsubscribe from future notifications for NYC-area events by adding or removing your name from this list.)

WiknicEdit

As both an editor who attended the Youtube live session and a resident of the NYC metro area, I believe it is important to go to wiknic. I do have it set on the calendar. However I am unsure if I should drive down or not. Will there be any use of using the train? Personisgaming (talk) 00:53, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
