Happy First Edit Day!Edit

For some reason, Rosie, I had always assumed you had been editing much longer than me. Now I see I actually started a few months before you did. But it was only in 2013 that we started to create all those DYKs, together with Dr. Blofeld and Nvvchar. It's amazing how productive we were on all kinds of topics in those days. And then in 2014, after you created Women writers, a new focus began to emerge. It's always been a real pleasure to collaborate with you. I hope we can continue to work together for many more years. Congratulations on your 12th editing anniversary.--Ipigott (talk) 14:32, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

12 years!! Yey!♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:38, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you both, @Ipigott and Dr. Blofeld. It has been such a wonderful experience in my life, collaborating with you. Looking forward to keeping it up in the years to come. --Rosiestep (talk) 16:02, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

UW videoEdit

External video
  Exploring the gender gap in Wikipedia editors, 3:09, June 11, 2019, University of Washington[1]


I assume you've seen the video and the article in UW News. I'll probably put this in the next Signpost "In the media". Can you give a good one or two line quote for publication?

Yes, I've seen them, and thanks for noticing, Smallbones. Here's the quote: "I think Amanda Menking and Wanda Pratt's work is important, so I was happy to participate in this project, and the follow-up video, which also includes FloNight. I'd be interested in hearing feedback from members of the Wikimedia community as well as non-Wikimedians after they view the video. Hopefully, it'll be widely-shared." --Rosiestep (talk) 00:42, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

WIR TwitterEdit

I am not sure who made this post, but I think it would be best if you can talk to the person who made that post and remind them of WP:AGF. Afootpluto (talk) 23:34, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for removing the post. I think it helped a lot in preventing the escalation of the Fram situation. Afootpluto (talk) 00:21, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for stopping by, Afootpluto; appreciate it. --Rosiestep (talk) 00:54, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Just a heads up, the twitter post was mentioned at ARC. Afootpluto (talk) 01:20, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Wanted to stop by and say "thanks" for your intervention here. There is a lot of reasonable divergence in the opinions of the community right now, and a lot we don't know. Your actions to correct this situation show the kind of leadership that the community needs when so many (often ordinarily sensible) people are having difficulty avoiding unnecessary (and potentially inaccurate) personalization of the issues. Risker (talk) 02:10, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Risker; appreciate it. --Rosiestep (talk) 18:59, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

I have filed a statement on the Twitter posts at ArbCom. You (but not any Twitter posts of yours) were mentioned in that statement. Notifying you in case pings didn't work. I'll just alert you too that BullRangifer has also made a statement on this issue. starship.paint (talk) 06:53, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Got it, Starship.paint. --Rosiestep (talk) 18:59, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
  I recently said that your apology was the right thing. But I just realized that I had not communicated that to you personally. So, I'm here. Thank you, Rosiestep for that apology. starship.paint (talk) 08:17, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Starship.paint. I appreciate it. --Rosiestep (talk) 21:18, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

WikiProject X Newsletter • Issue 14Edit

Newsletter • June 2019

Updates: I've been focusing largely on the development side of things, so we are a lot closer now to being ready to actually start discussing deploying it and testing it out here.

There's just a few things left that need to be resolved:

  • A bunch of language support issues in particular, plus some other release blockers, such as the fact that currently there's no good way to find any hubs people do create.
  • We also probably need some proper documentation and examples up to even reference if we want a meaningful discussion. We have the extension documentation and some test projects, but we probably need a bit more. Also I need to be able to even find the test projects! How can I possibly write reports about this stuff if I can't find any of it?!

Some other stuff that's happened in the meantime:

  • Midpoint report is out for this round of the project, if you want to read in too much detail about all the problems I've been running into.
  • WikiProject Molecular Biology have successfully set up using the old module system that CollaborationKit is intended to replace (eventually), and it even seems to work, so go them. Based on the issues they ran into, it looks like the members signup thing on that system has some of the same problems as we've been unable to resolve in CK, though, which is... interesting. (Need to change the content model to the right thing for the formwizard config to take. Ugh, content models.)

Until next time,
