Good Article NominationEdit

Hello Project California. After many revisions on the article New Albion and some help from an editor who examined the article during a peer review request, I have listed the article as a Good Article Nomination. It is the only article so listed under the Places category which relates to California. Perhaps as part of the WikiProject California, an editor here might review it. After examining some of Good Articles on California Project page and their nomination assessment, I am confident this article is properly prepared. Most kind regards.

Potential notable individualEdit

This might be of interest to WP:MILHIST and to WP:AFRO but William Clark, Jr. might meet WP:BIO. Retired Command Sergeant Major Clark has received significant coverage in the Monterey Herald, is mentioned in the Congressional Record by Congressman Jimmy Panetta, and a biography is included in this book. Just thought I would mention it if someone where interested in creating the article, if they deem it a sufficiently notable subject.--RightCowLeftCoast (Moo) 01:31, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

California Office of Environmental Health Hazard AssessmentEdit

In the germany Wikipedia we have Uploaded the OEHHA-Logo. That is for you Information. If you want also upload to the EN-Wiki or upload to the Commons if you know more about the US-Copyright... Unfortunately we are not verry sure if we can upload to the commons. --Calle Cool (talk) 20:43, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

@Calle Cool: Based on the treatment of the Cal Fire logo, this logo is in the public domain under the laws of California. Consequently, I have uploaded it to the Commons here. Thank for your the information! TitanAndromeda 21:44, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, CaliforniaEdit

Would someone be so kind as to assess this new article? I'm new to this WikiProject and hoping for some pointers on how the article might be improved. Thanks, Swper (talk) 20:52, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

I think this is overall a very good new article. I went ahead and made some relatively minor changes, the largest of which was removing the reference to Frank Gehry from the note at the top. I think it's a spurious detail that doesn't contribute to the article.
I also think that having ", California" in the article title is unnecessary given that there presumably isn't another museum with the exact same name as this one, unless the actual name of the museum includes ", California" at the end. But I will hold off on moving the article to allow for more discussion. TitanAndromeda 00:39, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your help! I would support moving the article to Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, which is the actual name of the museum, but that is currently a disambiguation, so it would require a bit of shuffling things around. Swper (talk) 16:34, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@Swper: Ah good point, I didn't realize that the two museums technically have the same name. I think in that case, using "(California)" and "(Minnesota)" at the end of each title would be appropriate, rather than being after commas. There's also the question of whether the article titles should call each museum a different name; I think the convention is to use the most common name even if it isn't the formal name.

Request for information on WP1.0 web toolEdit

Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.

We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Category renaming discussion: Sierra Pelona Mountains -> Sierra Pelona RidgeEdit

FYI: there is a category renaming discussion at Wikipedia:Categories_for_discussion/Log/2019_November_1#Category:Sierra_Pelona_Mountains for renaming of Category:Sierra Pelona Mountains to Category:Sierra Pelona Ridge to match the name which is actually supported by its USGS GNIS source. The category's main article was already renamed for the same correction to align with the name supported by its source. Ikluft (talk) 19:36, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

  • As obvious as it sounds that it should use the name supported by its source, the renaming will only happen if at least a few shows of support are added to the CfD discussion. This is not expected to be controversial but still needs to meet the minimum bar of having had a discussion. Ikluft (talk) 20:02, 1 November 2019 (UTC)
