Women in RedEdit

Hi there, Valley17, and welcome to Women in Red. It's good to see you've started editing again after such a long break. You seem to have made a good start on women's biographies with Rotraut Klein-Moquay and Anne-Birthe Hove. I hope there will be many more. You might nevertheless find it useful to look through our Ten Simple Rules. If you run into any difficulties or need assistance, please let me know. Happy editing!--Ipigott (talk) 10:37, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome! I'm looking forward to more editing. Valley17 (talk) 00:33, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

DYK for Ann WroeEdit

 On 27 April 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Ann Wroe, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Ann Wroe has written The Economist's obituaries since 2003, with subjects including Prince, Arthur Miller, and Osama bin Laden? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Ann Wroe. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Ann Wroe), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
