April editathons at Women in RedEdit


Hi MLG - I was hoping you could help me find (or point me in the direction) of the following: “The Tuesdee Testa Story.” Victoria Advocate 10 Mar. 1969: 1B - Thank you in advance (hope to see you in Boston) - Atsme Talk 📧 22:23, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

@Atsme: Here's the clip: The Tuesdee Testa Story. There's more in the Newspaper archives, so let me know if you want more. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 17:48, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
❤️ Thank you, Megalibrarygirl   I would very much appreciate as much as you can find!! - Atsme Talk 📧 17:56, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Request: <--- there is a section about her with a photo that was published in the Baltimore Sun. The Wordpress section states that Tuesdee was: "...Dark Mirage’s regular exercise rider and buddy, the one who walked her, fed her and often groomed her." They are crediting her with the filly's turn-around after a defeat, and then going on to win the Acorn Stakes, the Mother Goose, and the Coaching Club American Oaks which comprised the original "Filly Triple Crown". Anything you can find that credits Tuesdee with Dark Mirage, and any win records, earnings or awards you can find for Tuesdee. Don't hesitate to let me know how I can return the favor. And for all your hard work, I will send a request to WMF to double your wages. 😄 Atsme Talk 📧 19:06, 23 September 2019 (UTC)
OK, I've got more stuff for you, Atsme. :)

Wow!! What a goldmine! Thank you so much! I'm on it!! Atsme Talk 📧 18:51, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Anytime, Atsme! Megalibrarygirl (talk) 20:12, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Stub contestEdit

As you will have noticed, Sue, we are launching a three-month stub contest on 1 October. Although we have a WiR barnstar with laurels, it would be good to have some award images specifically for the contest's two sections, i.e. new stubs and enhanced stubs (or simply de-stubs). I have suggested recognizing the winners of each section for each of the three months. As you are good with images, you might like to design some for this contest. They could then be included as user boxes on the winners' user pages. You might find inspiration here.--Ipigott (talk) 07:37, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

@Ipigott: I'll see what I can come up with. I'll probably be able to do some work on it tomorrow at home where I have some graphics software. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 19:13, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!Edit


After a successful first iteration of the “Months of African Cinema” last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000.

The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which have been dedicated to creating and improving content that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. Join us in this global edit-a-thon, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope. Also remember to list your name under the participants section.

On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing participants in the following manner:

  • Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
  • Diversity winner
  • Gender-gap fillers
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here. For further inquiries, please leave comments on the contest talkpage or on the main project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Ava MichelleEdit

Hi Megalibrarygirl I could use your help, my article on Ava Michelle has been nominated for deletion despite her being very famous. That article is receiving 20,000 views a day. I have had problems in the past with these deletionists whose only goal it seems is to destroy others work. I am all for the feminist movement, this girl deserves an article, please help. James Kevin McMahon (talk) 12:59, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

James Kevin McMahon I'll see if there's any good sources for her in the databases. She might be WP:TOOSOON, but I won't know till I look. If I find anything, I'll add it. :) Also, please don't assume that people are trying to destroy your work. I know it feels that way, but the nominators for deletion are acting in good faith. Megalibrarygirl (talk) 23:36, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

for everythingEdit

  The Signpost Barnstar
For everything you do at The Signpost. Smallbones(smalltalk) 18:12, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Smallbones. I'm just glad I can help in my small way. You do the heavy lifting! :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 23:22, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

A kitten for you!Edit

Thank you for your substantial support on the Ava Michelle article. Jim

James Kevin McMahon (talk) 16:46, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

@James Kevin McMahon: no problem. She's notable and has coverage going back years. I'm glad I could help. But next time, don't panic! If worse comes to worse, we can always draftify an article for you to keep in userspace till they get more acting chops under their belts. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 18:47, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Mary Tillman Smith: doubts about meaning of parts of the textEdit

Hello! How are you?

I am currently translating to Catalan language the article about Mary Tillman Smith and I have some doubts about the specific meaning of some sentences. If you don't mind, I suggest using as a reference for explaining it to me.

"She created bold, colorful and expressive paintings"

A) What do you mean by "bold"?
2nd meaning in MacMilland], probably close to llamativo

"Her second marriage was also short, ending when Smith saw that her tenant-farmer husband's year-end settlement was grossly short."

B) I don't understand the who in the sentence "tenant-farmer husband's year-end settlement was grossly short". The husband is also the tenant? Is it the husband's tenant?
Her husband farmed land that he did not own, rather he leased the land from someone else[2], and as a sharecropper only received a portion of the proceeds from selling his produce. Either aparcero, granjero arrendatario or agrícolas arrendatarios.[3]
C) When you write "farmer", do you fear to the one who works growing plants or crops OR the one who works with animals? In Catalan and Spanish language, we don't have a word which means both.
As they were sharecropping (per the source), they grew crops, so definitely plants.
D) What is a year-end settlement? I know a settlement is an agreement, as a contract. But, a year-end has several meanings and I don't know how to translate it well.
Means more like the accounting process at the end of the contract; like settling-up[4], i.e. ajustar cuentas. At the end of the year, the owner of the land sold the crops and took his payment for the land and then gave his tenant some of the proceeds. According to the source, Tillman Smith thought they were due over $1,000, but they only got $17 from the landlord.[5]

"Her complaints about the mistake, a more than $1,000 difference, led to John Smith "sending her away."

E) What does "sending her way" mean?
Banishing her[6], i.e. desterrar.

Of course, do not haste to answer!

Have a great day--Hienafant (talk) 15:34, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Hienafant, I'm not Sue, but I watch her page. I also speak a bit of Spanish, so I took the liberty of answering your questions. Do not hesitate to ask, if anything I wrote is unclear. SusunW (talk) 18:58, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
SusunW, thank you very much. Everything is clear now.--Hienafant (talk) 20:36, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
You are very welcome. Glad I could help. SusunW (talk) 20:43, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
SusunW thank you so much for helping Hienafant! I spent most of my weekend helping my kiddos with school projects and never got to do any Wikipedia. :( Megalibrarygirl (talk) 16:23, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
Not a problem Sue, I always try to have your back :) SusunW (talk) 16:35, 14 October 2019 (UTC)


Rossy Evelin Lima notable? WBGconverse 15:39, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I'd say so, Winged Blades of Godric. I went through and worked on the article, cleaning up and adding more biographical and critical information. Thanks for bringing her to my attention. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 20:48, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
