User group for Military Historians[edit]


"Military history" is one of the most important subjects when speak of sum of all human knowledge. To support contributors interested in the area over various language Wikipedias, we intend to form a user group. It also provides a platform to share the best practices between military historians, and various military related projects on Wikipedias. An initial discussion was has been done between the coordinators and members of WikiProject Military History on English Wikipedia. Now this discussion has been taken to Meta-Wiki. Contributors intrested in the area of military history are requested to share their feedback and give suggestions at Talk:Discussion to incubate a user group for Wikipedia Military Historians. Please spread the message to your members or Wikimedia volunteers within your scope.

Notification of Rapid Grant proposal for Wikidata QuickSheets - useful in BLP work[edit]

Hello all, I wanted to let you all know that I have submitted a Rapid Grant proposal to further develop software that will semi-automate the process of moving BLP data from Wikipedia to Wikidata. As you will see, it is particularly useful for BLP and *gap work, as it will allow you to quickly source claims. For example, with the proposal to remove all unsourced Ethnic Group (P172) claims. The tool is designed to be accessible to those without programming experience by using simple article lists to generate spreadsheets for human evaluation. This builds on work done as part the Art+Feminism campaign, which is detailed at our workplan where you can see in detail more about how the tool works. I welcome your feedback on the proposal. --Theredproject (talk) 21:37, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Project grant proposal: #VisibleWikiWomen 2019[edit]

Hello all, I wanted to let you all know that a Project Grant was submitted for the 2019 #VisibleWikiWomen challenge, a 'Whose Knowledge?' campaign to add more images of women to Commons and Wikipedia. In the 2018 pilot campaign, participants added over 800 images to Commons, and by May, over 500 of them were being used across Wikipedia. Next year, we have this goals: 1) add more diverse and quality images; 2) grow the network of non-Wikimedian partners; 3) incorporate images into more edit-a-thons. As an outcome, we expect that at least 1600 images of different women will be uploaded. We welcome your feedback on the proposal! Thank you in advance! --Señoritaleona (talk) 21:42, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
