Bay Area WikiSalon series kickoff, April 27Edit
The last Wednesday evening of every month, wiki enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay Area will gather to collaborate, mingle, and learn about new projects and ideas. We have two brief presentations lined up for our kickoff event in downtown San Francisco:
- The Nueva Upper School recently hosted the first ever high school Wikipedia edit-a-thon. We will hear what interests them about Wikipedia, what they have learned so far, and what they hope to achieve.
- Photojournalist Kris Schreier Lyseggen, author of The Women of San Quentin: The Soul Murder of Transgender Women in Male Prisons, will tell us about her work and how she researched the topic.
We allow time for informal conversation and working on articles. Newcomers and experienced wiki users are encouraged to attend. We will have beverages and light snacks.
Please note: You must register here, and bring a photo ID that matches your registration name. The building policy is strict on this point.

Hi Kaldari. I'm contacting you as Cyberpower678 is on an indefinite wikibreak and you're listed as the other operator of User:InternetArchiveBot. I continue to be concerned about the bot making unnecessary cosmetic changes to external links which it marks with misleading edit summaries, claiming to have "rescued sources" (see User talk:Cyberpower678/Archive 62#InternetArchiveBot 2 and User talk:Cyberpower678/Archive 62#InternetArchiveBot 3). In response to my last query on this point Cyberpower678 responded that "beta15 of IABot will no longer convert archive templates outside of references", which sounds like good news, but could do with some clarification for the less clued-up, as InternetArchiveBot continues to make the same unhelpful edits (e.g. this edit today, in which the same unnecessary changes to external links are made, also inexplicably adding inaccurate and unnecessary access dates to the links, as well as more useful changes to references). However I see that the edit summary in this case specifies "v2.0beta14". Am I right in thinking, then, that these edits will cease at some point in the future when the bot switches from "beta14" to "beta15". If so, do you know when that will be? All the best, – Arms & Hearts (talk) 17:28, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
