Hello[edit]

COTW Project[edit]

You voted for Lee Smith (baseball), this week's Collaboration of the week. Please come and help it become a featured-standard article.

A short Esperanzial update[edit]

As you may have gathered, discussions have been raging for about a week on the Esperanza talk page as to the future direction of Esperanza. Some of these are still ongoing and warrant more input (such as the idea to scrap the members list altogether). However, some decisions have been made and the charter has hence been amended. See what happened. Basically, the whole leadership has had a reshuffle, so please review the new, improved charter.

As a result, we are electing 4 people this month. They will replace JoanneB and Pschemp and form a new tranche A, serving until December. Elections will begin on 2006-07-02 and last until 2006-07-09. If you wish to run for a Council position, add your name to the list before 2006-07-02. For more details, see Wikipedia:Esperanza/June 2006 elections.

Thanks and kind, Esperanzial regards, —Celestianpower háblame 16:00, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

August Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: To-Do List
The Esperanza To-Do List is a place where you may list any request, big or small, for assistance. If you need help with archiving your usertalk, for example, all you need to do is list it here and somebody will help you out. Likewise, if you need help with some area of editing on Wikipedia, list it here! Again, any matter, trivial or not, can be placed on this page. However, all matters listed on this page must not be of an argumentative nature. You do not need to be a member of Esperanza (or this program) to place or fulfill requests on this page. If you don't have any requests, consider coming by and fulfilling a few! This program has not been very active, but has lots of potential!
What's New?
In order to help proposed programs become specific enough to make into full-fledged programs, the In development section of the proposals page has been created. Proposals that are promising, but need to be organized in more detail are listed here. Please take a look at what is there, and help the proposals turn into programs.
To improve both the layout and text of the front page, in an attempt to clarify the image of Esperanza, the front page is going to have some redesigning take place. Please take your creative minds to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Front page redesign to brainstorm good ideas.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. In order to make sure all users who join Esperanza are welcomed, a list of volunteers who are willing to welcome new Esperanzians is at Wikipedia:Esperanza/Members#Esperanza_welcomers. Please add yourself if you are interested; we want to make sure all new Esperanza members are welcomed!
  2. The In development section of the proposals page has been created.
  3. Proposals page: Some proposals have been moved to the aforementioned "In development" section, some have been left as a proposal, and others have been archived. For those proposals that were a good idea but didn't necessarily constitute a program, General Esperanzial Actions has been created.
  4. Two small pieces of charter reform will be decided on in a straw poll at Wikipedia talk:Esperanza/Governance. One involves filling the position of any councillors who may leave, the other involves reforming the charter.
  5. Until cooperation with the Kindness Campaign is better defined, it remains as a proposed program.
  6. There is a page for discussing the front page redesign.

Although having the newsletter appear on everyone's userpage is desired, this may not be ideal for everyone. If, in the future, you wish to receive a link to the newsletter, rather than the newsletter itself, you may add yourself to Wikipedia:Esperanza/Newsletter/Opt Out List.

WP:MED[edit]

Hi,

September Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Barnstar Brigade
Here in Wikipedia there are hundreds of wikipedians whose work and efforts go unappreciated. One occasionally comes across editors who have thousands of good edits, but because they may not get around as much as others, their contributions and hard work often go unnoticed. As Esperanzians we can help to make people feel appreciated, be it by some kind words or the awarding of a Barnstar. This is where the Barnstar Brigade comes in. The object of this program is to seek out the people which deserve a Barnstar, and help them feel appreciated. With your help, we can recognize more dedicated editors!
What's New?
September elections are upon us! Anyone wishing to be a part of the Advisory Council may list themselves as a candidate from 18 September until 24 September, with the voting taking place from 25 September to 30 September. Those who wish to help with the election staff should also list themselves!
Appreciation Week, a program currently in development, now has its own subpage! Share your good ideas on how to make it awesome there!
The Esperanza front page has been redesigned! Many thanks to all who worked hard on it.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  1. The proposals page has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  2. Since the program in development Appretiaion week is getting lots of good ideas, it now has its own subpage.
  3. The September 2006 Council elections will open for nominations on 18 September 2006. The voting will run from 25 September 2006 until 30 September 2006. If you wish to be a candidate or a member of the elections staff, please list yourself!
  4. The new Esperanza front page design has but put up - many thanks to all who worked on it!
  5. TangoTango has written a script for a bot that will list new members of Esperanza, which will help those who welcome new Esperanzains greatly!

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.

Peer review of bacteria[edit]

Hi there. I'd value your input on this article. Thank you. TimVickers 05:39, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

This article is now a Featured Article candidate, the nomination page is (here). Thank you. TimVickers 04:53, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Malik Scott[edit]

Why is there a problem? He beat Michael Bennett (boxer) and Jason Estrada who both bombed out in the pros too (scott has yet to lose). He beat Sultan Ibragimov who is fighting for the WBO title soon and IBF challenger DaVarryl Williamson. He was an amateur star, won among others the junior world championships.German.Knowitall 18:55, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Plesiorycteropus[edit]

You said that there should be a picture of the Plesiorycteropus on its talk page. I can help you there by making one, but I need to know, can you either A: show me the image on a website or B: describe it to me in words? If either of these, I can whip up an image! --KnowledgeLord 07:01, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

In response[edit]

Thanks a ton for your help, but I'll see what I can do. --KnowledgeLord 09:39, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Corsica Cola[edit]

Regarding the Corsica Cola article; I have simply performed a direct translation of the French article to English.

Whilst I agree that the article reads like an advertisement and that a photo would be great, I only partake in translations of articles on wikipedia as this is where my strengths lie. I would prefer to leave it to other wikipedians to arrange and fill in extra information, I have no expertise at all on corsican cola - it was just an easy translation project I took up. Thanks for tidying up the template anyhow. Jono 16:24, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi again Francisco. I have now translated the French article on the Pietra brewrery, its here: Pietra. I am also intending to translate articles about the other beers produced by Pietra. Please have a look and make any changes you think necessary, thanks! Jono 14:50, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the changes again. The French articles are of pretty poor quality like you said and do seem to advertise rather than take a neutral approach. However, by translating them, I have hopefully given somebody something useful to work with and improve on. Before you know it the French will be translating from the English articles into French!

Hi there Francisco! I have looked at the articles and contributed to the discussion. I will try to find some more background on the issue - as I said in the discussion, my books have let me down on this one! Chrisfow 11:49, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Definition of Europe[edit]

How does the political definition of Europe differ from the geographical? The boundary was always the Urals Mts. from the north along the east side, and the waterways Black Sea, Aegean, Med, and Atlantic to the southeast, south and southwest. --Bejnar 15:13, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Zeitgeist[edit]

I see that you have started Zeitgeist (2006 film), various other incarnations of that article have been deleted at least 3 times today alone in various incarnations Zeitgeist, The Movie and Zeitgeist the movie. Is there any claim to notability for this film? The imdb entry was written by the film maker, there is no assertion that the film was ever distributed or any WP:RSes that the film is notable. Can you provide any? In the interim I am tagging for speedy deletion. Carlossuarez46 05:55, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Minorcan Giant Lagomorph[edit]

I'm happy to give you what little information I have. Its going to be named Nuralagus rex. If you google Nuralagus, you'll get two or three pages, one of which seems to have some useful information and another has the title of the dissertation. I found the reference in the following paper:

Quintana, J. and J. Agusti. 2007. Los mamíferos insulares del Mioceno medio y superior de Menorca (islas Baleares, Mediterráneo occidental). Geobios, 40(5): 677-687

I would ask that the genus and species names not be used on the page until the animal has been formally named in a published paper. --Helioseus 15:12, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Disputed non-free use rationale for Image:04caudillo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:04caudillo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content.

Proposed deletion of Nass Marrakech[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Nass Marrakech has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A7 -- no indicia of notability.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Epeefleche (talk) 05:51, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

A new medical resource[edit]

Please note that there is a new freely accessible medical resource, MedMerits (to which I'm a medical advisor) on neurologic disorders. A discussion on ELs to MedMerits and medical ELs in general is currently in progress ("Wikipedia and its relationship to the outside world"). Presto54 (talk) 16:59, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Sweetness and.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Sweetness and.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 10:50, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)
