Friday Jan 15: ONLINE Wikipedia Day NYCEdit

January 15, 6pm: Wikimedia NYC celebrates 20 years of Wikipedia

Wikipedia Day is always a big day for Wikimedia NYC. While we cannot meet in person, we still have something special planned. We will begin the event with the debut of a new video celebrating our community. This will be followed by a panel discussion with some of the people you'll see in the video talking about Wikipedia's 20th anniversary, Wikimedia New York City, and the amazing work they do on Wikimedia projects.

The event will be broadcast live via YouTube. Feel free to ask questions for the panel through the chat!

We will also have some NYC wiki trivia you can participate in, with confectionery prizes.

6:00pm - 7:00 pm online via Wikimedia NYC on YouTube

Want to help me make the ALA template better?Edit

Hey there -- I saw your edit to the library associations template. I think that one may not work (as I was envisioning it, but maybe I am not looking at this right) because PLA is already in the ALA Template but I think the ALA template (here) could be a lot better. Want to help me sort it out? And maybe we could think if consortia should be in the library associations template or their own template too. Jessamyn (talk) 00:29, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Hiya, you're right about PLA. At first I thought consortiums should be part it, but I see you've designed so that it's for individuals (not really institutions). ALA is difficult because it includes so many smaller groups (which I guess don't have their own WP pages). I'd say just start the template, notify library groups and let people at it. :) - kosboot (talk) 00:56, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Sounds good, thank you. Sorry I missed this last week. Jessamyn (talk) 22:53, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

The Rothschilds (musical)Edit

I am unwatching this article. There is a new editor who is adding a lot of, I think, POV information to the article about the revised production. If you have any interest in this musical, you may wish to challenge him. If you do, let me know and I will support you on the Talk page, but I am travelling, and I cannot challenge what he is doing by myself. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 03:32, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
