Inter-Allied Women's Conference[edit]

I'm not much good at asking for things, I know diddly squat about Medieval England, and though I've ridden horses for most of my life, I know very little about them either. That being said, Montanabw suggested I contact you to see if you'd be interested in reviewing a FA nomination I have posted. It has nothing to do with horses, but there are some English women involved. ;) The review seems to be stuck with 2 comments done. As it is my first nomination, I have no idea how to get it unstuck except to ask people, who will give an impartial and thorough review, to look at it. If you cannot, no big deal; we are all volunteers here and I totally get that interests and real life limit what we work on. SusunW (talk) 14:13, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Ping me again next week if it’s still hanging. I’m on the road until Tuesday, then picking up a new filly in South Dakota Wednesday and Thursday, then doing photography for a client over the weekend..hopefully will calm down next week. Ealdgyth - Talk 15:32, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Our schedules seem to be in sync. We'll be traveling out of the country (I live in Mexico) Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this coming week, but should be back the following one. Thank you. SusunW (talk) 15:48, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
Hope all of your travels went well. We were able to accomplish our frustrating, but necessary personal business, and get back home with few difficulties. Gog the Mild, who is mentoring me through this process, tells me I still need a source review and a photograph review. The latter, I am familiar with, as I had a lengthy review during the ClassA evaluation. 4 Images have been added since that review. As for the source review, I have no idea what that means, but if needed, I can e-mail the papers and journal articles sent to me by professors Cobble and Siegel. Would you be able to assist with either of those? SusunW (talk) 19:59, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps by Friday... the game I work for has a big event starting THursday and ... my photography client is sending me more product to photograph come Tuesday... I'm still not done with what she sent Friday! Ealdgyth - Talk 20:13, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
I am reluctant to ask again, as it feels as if I am being pushy, but it appears the article is down to a source review being needed. Again, I totally understand real world obligations and if you simply cannot, I am totally okay with that. SusunW (talk) 17:14, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
YOu're not being pushy. I just have no time... I'm sorry, I wouldn't count on me being able to do anything any time soon. Ealdgyth - Talk 18:40, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your honesty. I truly appreciate your even considering it, as I get that real life always comes first. SusunW (talk) 19:23, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Sobibor[edit]

Thanks for your edits on the Sobibor article the other day! The article is a bit of a mess and doesn't seem to have gotten much attention lately. I'm drafting a new section for this article in my userspace sandbox-- if you'd like to help, or just have a look, you can find it here. (I've cloned the whole article in that link, but the only new stuff is in the "life in the camp" section.) Botterweg14 (talk) 14:41, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Ray Emery TFA[edit]

This article was scheduled before, and I had expressed concerns it might be a bit borderline because of how long it's been since (1) FAC and (2) being actively maintained. Wehwalt had pulled the article. Do you feel the article is suitable for TFA? Maxim(talk) 17:49, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

A quick glance at it doesn't make it seem that awful... my general belief is if the article is awful or in need of brushingup - it should either be taken to a FA review so it can be delisted rather than just not run... or the exposure on the front page will give it the polish it may need.

Richard III Thanks[edit]

Thank you for reversing the vandalism in Richard III's page today. I will never understand why some anonymous vandal bothers to waste time like this. What is the point? Anyway, I try to hit the Thank button when I spot this, and occasionally send a personal thank you just to say your prompt efforts are much appreciated. Cheers.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year's WikiCup, whether you made it to the final rounds or not, and particular congratulations to the newcomers to the WikiCup who have achieved much this year.

It would be great if you ran. You have wide respect and the type of no nonsense, cut and dry, brick of sense persona that the committee always benefits from. I realise the appointment comes with heavy duty strings. Ceoil (talk) 19:09, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
