Same river different namesEdit

The North Canadian River is the same as the Beaver River (Oklahoma) that changes names at the Oklahoma state line. It seems this could be covered with alternate names instead of two different articles on the same river with interchangeable names.

External links updateEdit

After discussions spread over the last couple of years, we have finally updated Wikipedia:External links#Links in lists with some new advice about how to format external links in some stand-alone lists. This format is not mandatory, but it may be helpful in some cases. Please feel free to try it out in pages that you think are appropriate, and leave feedback on the guideline's talk page. Thanks, WhatamIdoing (talk) 23:08, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Would you peer review Veterans benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder in the United States?Edit

I requested peer review for this article: Veterans benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder in the United States. Would you help improve the article by reviewing the article on its peer review page? You do not have to write a comprehensive review. Every little bit helps! Thank you.   - Mark D Worthen PsyD (talk) (I am a man. The traditional male pronouns are fine.) 06:52, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Category for PlantationsEdit

I have been working on the article, List of plantations in North Carolina. I found that there are two categories for plantations: Category:Plantations in North Carolina and Category:Plantation houses in North Carolina. This same structure is repeated at Category:Plantations in the United States by state and Category:Plantation houses in the United States by state, as well as in each of the states. I looked at other states, also, and saw a similar pattern. I tried to find all the plantation articles in North Carolina and put them in one category, but then I though this might be something that should be discussed in the United State project.

It doesn't seem to be necessary to have categories for both "Plantation houses" and "Plantations". A plantation is not a plantation without a house. The articles that exist talk about the house, its history, the people who built or lived at the house, and the land and crops on the plantation.

I would like to recommend that the "Category:Plantations in state" and "Category:Plantations in the United States by state" be used instead of "Category:Plantation houses in state" and "Category:Plantation houses in the United States by state". I apologize if this has been discussed before and I am not aware of it or if there is some other reason for keeping dual categories. This would also make it much easier to map all of the plantations under one category. This would require some work to move the existing plantation articles to one category for each state and to delete the other category. It might also be useful to add a U.S. and State History categories, as well as History of slavery categories, to the Plantation categories.

2019 US Banknote ContestEdit

Commons WikiProject Numismatics concept logo (2017).png US Banknote Contest Flag of the United States.svg
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

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! 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) 04:25, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
