Art+Feminism: Feb 15 online edit-a-thon campaign launch and upcoming conversations

Art+Feminism Virtual Tables campaign illustration

We have some exciting events coming up that we’d love to share with you!

At Art+Feminism, we believe that as feminist editors, our strength is in collective action. When we edit together, we share resources, knowledge, and skills; in doing so, we form a defense against harassment within the Wikiverse and beyond. Alongside our initiatives to close diversity gaps and create a safer Wikipedia, Art+Feminism remains committed to doing our part. This year that includes creating more virtual spaces for us to connect with one another, share knowledge, and edit together.

To start, join Art+Feminism and Wiki Editoras Lx on 15 February to discuss and practice strategies for collective editing. This event kicks off our series of virtual editing tables for our Year 11 campaign. You can see our full schedule here and register today.

We’ll also be hosting two special conversations: Online & On the Ground: Abortion Activism in Maryland and Collective Imagination + Radical Futures: Kansas City Organizers on Making Art & Building Power. These online events are open to all and we hope to see you there!

If you’d like to join the campaign by hosting your own A+F event but haven’t yet, it’s not too late! You can view our campaign resources here and send us an email to let us know you’re joining.

Word limit on Wikimedia Foundation elections/2024/Candidates/Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight


Please be aware that there is a word limit of 1000 words for all your answers in total. You used so far 1111 words according to my counting tool in Libre Office Writer.

The word limit exists to limit the effort for our translators who will translate your text into several languages so that people who do not understant English can vote for you. Der-Wir-Ing ("DWI") talk 10:28, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, Der-Wir-Ing. I've trimmed 136 words, so it should be okay now. --Rosiestep (talk) 13:48, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Optional question for Board Election candidacy


A mistake in the candidate application was brought to the attention of the Election Committee, accidentally duplicating an optional question and omitting an additional optional question. The Election Committee decided that candidates may still answer the additional question, and will waive the word count limit in the case of answering this additional question. You may fill out your answer on your candidacy page. The deadline to answer the optional question is 23:59 UTC on 2 June. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Lady Baltimore


Sad to report, an article you helped me with a long time ago has had a sad ending. Lady Baltimore (eagle). She was euthanized last February, and her death is just now being reported. Incidentally, a photo I took of here roughly 9 years ago and placed in her Wikipedia article has been used, with photo credit, on the article regarding her deathMichaelh2001 (talk) 05:35, 11 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi en:user:Michaelh2001, and thanks for reaching out with this info. Shifting the conversation to the other place where you pinged me: en:English Wikipedia:User talk:Rosiestep#Lady Baltimore. --Rosiestep (talk) 13:05, 11 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
