New 1991-2020 normals being releasedEdit

It's now official. NOAA has released the new climate normal for the 1991-2020 period so now, we need to start updating the climate boxes to transition from 1981-2010 to 1991-2020. Before there were some edits back in April claiming that 1991-2020 data was released but this was not official as normals accounts for missing data while averages doesn't. I have been recently editing some pages already in updating the climate data to the newer 1991-2020 data (see Template:Atlanta weatherbox as an example for the main stations and (Port Huron) for other stations as examples to follow. Please feel free to edit the climate data in major cities in the United States to change it to the 1991-2020 data since it is officially released to the public. I have added some recommended sources below; if you have more, then feel free to add it. Thanks.

Is there a policy anywhere regarding "Riot" vs. "Protest"?Edit

Someone brought it up here, with regards to the Boston Tea Party. In my experience most sources do seem to use the phrase "protest" for this subject (though often with references to "mobs" as opposed to "protesters"), so I'd be hesitant to make sweeping changes to this article. But I imagine this issue comes up frequently – anyone know of any specific guidance or policy on this type of thing? Rovenrat (talk) 22:33, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

List of B-class articles with citation or other issuesEdit

Help copy editing and reviewing content of my article please!Edit

Hi everyone, my name is Amy and I'm writing my first ever Wikipedia article. It is classed as a stub in this WikiProject, and I believe I've expanded it well beyond that level. I would really appreciate some help with copy-editing but would love as well if you could just take a minute to read it as I've put a lot of effort in! I'm trying to bring the article beyond the stub category to a A, B, or C grade page. The page is about an extremist political group, the National Association for the Advancement of White People . Thanks for your help guys! Tofta22 (talk)
