You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community for Met Fashion Edit-a-thon @ Metropolitan Museum of Art on the Upper East Side.

It's the last weekend for Camp: Notes on Fashion, and we will have an intro talk to the exhibit by a guest from the Costume Institute, and participants will then be able to visit it on their own. Galleries will be open this evening until 9 pm.

With refreshments, and there will be a wiki-cake!

Open to everyone at all levels of experience, wiki instructional workshop and one-on-one support will be provided.

12:30pm - 4:30 pm at Uris Center for Education, Metropolitan Museum of Art (81st Street entrance) at 1000 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan
(note this is just south of the main entrance)
Galleries will be open this evening until 9 pm, and some wiki-visitors may wish to take this opportunity to see Camp: Notes on Fashion together after the formal event.

DYK nomination of Art Deco architecture of New York CityEdit

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Art Deco architecture of New York City at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Yoninah (talk) 02:05, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Spider-Man FACEdit

Hi David, when you get a moment can you tell me if you think this source is ok? It doesn't fix both of the last 2 sources I need to replace but it has a list of all the actors/characters on it so if it is acceptable I can use it to replace at least one more ref. There's no article on it here so beyond that I don't know what helps qualify something as reliable. Thanks SOURCE Darkwarriorblake / SEXY ACTION TALK PAGE! 13:33, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Hey Darkwarriorblake, I don't think that fits as a high-quality reliable source either. They're relatively new, they don't have a set editorial control, and a quick look didn't turn up significant mentions or referrals by other RS that would suggest it be considered in the same vein. If you're having trouble finding sources for the information, it may be a sign that it's not particularly relevant for inclusion. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs talk 22:04, 6 September 2019 (UTC)

Kubrick's RfCEdit

Hi David, It's always a bit disconcerting to see someone who has been involved in an RfC requesting specific admins to close that RfC, as happened here. If you are going to close the discussion—and I am sure that you will be scrupulously neutral when you approach this—please could you delay the close until Friday 13? Bishonen has asked that this is "a proper RFC, running for the normal time", which is 30 days. I would hate for wikilawyering to be introduced for it 'only' to have been running for 28 or 29 days. Thanks – SchroCat (talk) 14:14, 6 September 2019 (UTC)


Thank you today for Wipeout 3, a video games you say you played in your "formative years"! - On the same page, and in a similar vain, Sogenanntes Linksradikales Blasorchester, and I will go for Rock gegen Rechts next. - DYK that a sadly missed editor had the line "I contribute here for happiness; as an enchantment against sorrow." in her edit notice. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:54, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Great work on this article. Do you plan to improve this to GA quality? epicgenius (talk) 01:51, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Epicgenius—at some point. It's a 2020 priority right now; I'm still waiting on two books from the NYPL and I have another article I want to try and get FA this year, and I'm seeing if I can get some free period imagery out of the NY records department. Thanks for your help on this article. Der Wohltemperierte Fuchs talk 12:59, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
No problem. Please let me know when you want to improve it to GA. There may be some books in my college's library that I can borrow so we can use them as additional references. epicgenius (talk) 13:03, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
