Thank you ...Edit

.. for improving articles in September! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:20, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you today for Simon Hatley, "a man who shot an albatross that became famous in literary history. Whether he deserved it or not, I don't know, but it's why he is remembered."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:42, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome. Someone else's problem for a while!--Wehwalt (talk) 09:58, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you today for McKinley Birthplace Memorial dollar, "another commemorative for which there were high expectations, but it sold badly. It did make McKinley the first person to appear on two different U.S. coins, for whatever that's worth. They're worth a pretty penny today."! - The Ring was outstanding, remember Wehwalt well, - the singer's birthday is tomorrow, watch for DYK ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:04, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Review for Japanese battleship Yashima?Edit

I'd be grateful if you could spare the time to review Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Japanese battleship Yashima/archive1 as I had a coordinator request a reviewer from outside MilHist. I thought of you as you've reviewed many of my FACs before and am familiar with my style. If not, I'll put out a more general request; just let me know one way or another.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 17:52, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

That's fine. I'll do it today or tomorrow.--Wehwalt (talk) 17:55, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
That would be most excellent. Dunno why Old Spanish Trail half dollar still languishes, but I added a few comments there in the hopes that it will be promoted soon.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 17:56, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for those, I'll gt to them in the same time frame. I've been wondering if I should start keeping stats on promotion speed and seeing if there's a problem.--Wehwalt (talk) 18:05, 7 October 2019 (UTC)
I think that one of the coordinators is on a semi-break right now, so I'm not sure how much good that would do. Kinda frustrating for us high-volume nominators, though.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 18:49, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Presidential successionEdit

Hey- I am currently trying to have a discussion about including this kind of note on the talk page of LBJ- please share your thoughts there if interested. Geographyinitiative (talk) 05:33, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Shouldn't it go someplace with broader applicability?--Wehwalt (talk) 06:12, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

2019 US Banknote ContestEdit

  US Banknote Contest  
November-December 2019

There are an estimated 30,000 different varieties of United States banknotes, yet only a fraction of these are represented on Wikimedia Commons in the form of 2D scans. Additionally, Colonial America, the Confederate States, the Republic of Texas, multiple states and territories, communities, and private companies have issued banknotes that are in the public domain today but are absent from Commons.

In the months of November and December, WikiProject Numismatics will be running a cross-wiki upload-a-thon, the 2019 US Banknote Contest. The goal of the contest is to increase the number of US banknote images available to content creators on all Wikimedia projects. Participants will claim points for uploading and importing 2D scans of US banknotes, and at the end of the contest all will receive awards. Whether you want to claim the Gold Wiki or you just want to have fun, all are invited to participate.

If you do not want to receive invitations to future US Banknote Contests, follow the instructions here

Hello, if and when you have time, I would really appreciate your input at my current FAC, which is currently lacking reviews. FrB.TG (talk) 15:33, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

I'll take a look at it.--Wehwalt (talk) 15:35, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Humanities Reference DeskEdit

Thank you for your help at the Humanities Reference Desk. Thanks, also, for being open-minded ... and for engaging in a civil manner during our recent disagreement. Thanks again. Best, Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 15:45, 23 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for coming here to say that, and for your myriad contributions to Wikipedia.--Wehwalt (talk) 15:53, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome ... and thanks, again ... Best, Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 17:40, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Pilgrim Tercentenary half dollar scheduled for TFAEdit

This is to let you know that Pilgrim Tercentenary half dollar has been scheduled as WP:TFA for 28 November 2019. Please check that the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/November 28, 2019. Thanks! Ealdgyth - Talk 16:09, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

... with thanks from QAI

Thank you for article improvement in October! - I have a peer review open, DYK? Clara Schumann, 60 years of recitals, and what a life! See my talk today for great music that we sang yesterday. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:02, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

You're welcome. I'll get over there as soon as I can but am behind on reviews as usual.--Wehwalt (talk) 01:47, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Today, I am proud of a great woman on the Main page, Márta Kurtág, finally, who has several things in common with Schumann! - Here's my ideal candidate for arbcom. - No rush for Schumann, - birthday in September. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:31, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Apollo 13Edit

Did you have any plans to promote Apollo 13 to GA or FA? It would be nice to have at least a DYK for 50th anniversary. I understand if you are busy elsewhere. I might give it a go, or I can serve as GAN reviewer if you nominate it. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 05:39, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

I would be happy to move forward with a peer review today but other editors seem a bit slower to move.--Wehwalt (talk) 12:08, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
I have never been part of a peer review, but I seriously doubt their effectiveness. We are better served by more structured review processes like GAN and FAC. I encourage you to jump the gun. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 13:13, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Peer reviews are only useful if you can get editors to come to it. But you make a good point about the value of gun jumping if you are confident one is confident one can fix everything at FAC. Let me think It through, if there's not something of a contradiction there.--Wehwalt (talk) 14:26, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
@Coffeeandcrumbs: A peer review has been opened, if you can find time to comment it would be appreciated. Kees08 (Talk) 16:19, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
I am so here for it. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 16:31, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
