Fabulous work

I am sitting in your presentation at the Wiki NYC Conference. Fabulous work on gastropods. Thank you. :)--Jimbo Wales (talk) 21:01, 25 July 2009 (UTC)Reply


Hi Susan!

Really nice to know you're here and looking out for our molluscs. Much better hands than mine. Well, my time as a contributor on Wikipedia was very short. I thought I'd help out the pretty sparse Wikipedia pages on some local nudibranchs, since that's where a lot of beginners turn to first for information, BUT it turned out I was really more of a menace than a help! Eeek, the pages got deleted, then restored, so embarassing! So after that experience I decided to leave contributing the text to my betters and just contribute a few photos. ;-) - Robin — Preceding unsigned comment added by ANudibranchMom (talkcontribs) 00:21, 14 July 2016 (UTC)Reply

I am sorry you had an unpleasant experience, but your heart was in the right place. There's lots of great work that you could do here without running afoul of the guidelines. I could even talk you through stuff on the phone if that would help. I should explain that I used to be very active on here, but now most of my time goes into iNaturalist.

Hey Susan, how have you been? I'll try and submit Amphidromus for a GA review. I'll be working on it in the next weeks, so feel free to join the battle =D --Daniel Cavallari (talk) 12:17, 6 July 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hello Daniel, It is always very nice to hear from you, and I am glad that you are OK. I am OK too, and I will do whatever I can to help with this GA process. Please remind me if I forget. I am currently working with Sylvia van Leeuwen, a Dutch citizen scientist. We are about to re-sumbit a big paper to the Dutch journal Vita Malacologica. The paper reports the marine mollusk results of the Caribbean expedition she and I went on 2 years ago, to the little island of Sint Eustatius. I think the paper will be accepted this time around, and I hope the peer reviewers do not demand too much extra work, as this paper has been quite a huge amount of work already. Anyway, best of luck with the GA -- it will not be nearly as difficult as an FA attempt. Best, Invertzoo (talk) 13:05, 6 July 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hello! Back in 2011 you created an redirect Chinese hat. I wanted to let you know I listed the redirect for discussion; your input is absolutely welcome if you have any interest. Thanks! --TeaDrinker (talk) 05:54, 5 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hello Susan,

I was checking WP today and wondered if you were still actively editing so came over to check your userpage. Really happy to see that you are still active here, I hope you are doing well. I haven't been since I started a fairly intense job 9 years ago but remember my time editing Gastropods fondly (still diving though!). I'll look you up if I ever make it your way :) Antarctic-adventurer (talk) 15:36, 6 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hi Alexander! Yes, I am still active but only in a minor way. And yes, if you get to be in or near NYC, let me know and we can meet up! Invertzoo (talk) 15:55, 6 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

Use of picture for LinkedIn post promiting an event.

Hello, Invertzoo

I was wondering if you would let me use the picture "A view of Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2011, taken from the Birch Aquarium." for a post promoting BlueWeek (an event). I am an intern for the TMA BlueTech, the organization that will be using the image on LinkedIn.

Thank you in advance. Aiagui (talk) 21:12, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

I would first appreciate knowing a bit more about what TMA Blue Tech really is, so that I can understand who I am helping promote.
But generally speaking you can use the photo if you credit it to me and to Wikimedia and as long as it is not used in any way for profit-making. Invertzoo (talk) 21:57, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Good, I will give proper credit, of course.
[1] TMA BlueTech is a non-profit that promotes emerging blue economy companies with sustainability as their primary goal.
Our next conference will be held at two locations in San Diego, one of them being the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Thank you in advance!
Best,

You are invited to the picnic anyone can edit on Governors Island, at 403 Colonels Row by the ArtCrawl Harlem house.

This is a sequel event to the 2023 Governors Island Wiknic and will feature a workshop led by AfroCrowd at the ArtCrawl Harlem house. We'll also encourage collaboration for wiki-coverage of ArtCrawl Harlem's current exhibition at Governors Island. All are welcome, new and experienced!

Bring a picnic blanket and some potluck, as well as some sunscreen! We'll also provide sandwiches for everyone, and maybe some NYC pizza too, but we encourage you to bring your own favorite dishes to share, especially for those food cultural topics you would like to improve on Wikipedia.

We'll also do a portal thing for a bit with West Coast friends at Wikipedia:Meetup/LA/Wiknic2024.

Saturday, June 8, 2024 NYC Wiknic @ Governors Island (RSVP on-wiki)
