Nice to meet you

Hi Rosie, it was very nice to meet you at Wikimania 2015. I hope we'll stay in touch! Greetings, Sandra / Spinster (talk) 08:14, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

@Spinster: Hi Sandra, it was so nice getting to know you at Wikimania, and YES, let's stay in touch. I'm curious to know what have you been working on? What would you like to work on? I see you were a WiR... what was that like... we never did talk about that. I am very interested at the moment in documenting historical international women's conferences and their attendees. I wonder about how they were organized, who attended, what was said, what happened after everyone left. Of course, finding reliable sources and establishing notability are the big hurdles, but I'm pretty tenacious, and there's no real rush, and @SusunW: is also working on this, so slowly, but surely, we are moving forward.

Women in Red query

At w:Wikipedia:Meetup/Women in Red/4 -- do you know if there are desired articles for redlinks of women scientists that are no longer alive?

It's nice to write a bio page (or any page really) on a particular topic where the writer knows there might not be new significant changes in the future or need for further updates in years to come.

Thank you,

Hi Cirt. Looking at this list, w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Women/Women in Red/Women science and technology, I see a few have prominent death dates, while others have a death date if you look at the link next to their name (WikiData, other language Wikipedia article, etc.): Annie Maria Armitt, Katharine Bartlett, Vera Gaze, Mary Merrifield, Ida Ørskov, Maria von Linden, and so on. Hope this helps! --Rosiestep (talk) 15:12, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps they could be separated in subsections, by those that are still living, and those that are dead? -- Cirt (talk) 00:56, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
@Cirt: Good idea. I'll bring this up on the WiR talkpage: w:Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women/Women in Red#BLP. --Rosiestep (talk) 02:36, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks very much, feel free to keep me posted. Also, other than bio pages, if there were notable books and such, things with a defined beginning/middle/end points, that's more what I like to work on. For example, I wrote the article on the book by a female author, at Not in Front of the Children. Thanks again for your role in this valuable initiative to address systemic bias, -- Cirt (talk) 05:23, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Rosiestep,

My name is Jen. I have been working with Lori Brown on the graphic presence of ArchiteXX and WikiD. I understand that WikiWomen is looking to develop a logo, and I would be happy to offer my services. Please feel free to reach out, and we can discuss further to get the ball rolling. I have read the discussion on WikiWomen's talk page and seen the logos developed by Montana and Isarra. Over the next few days I will be sure to familiarize myself with the Wiki Visual identity guidelines to better understand the project's constrains, and how I can be of most use.

Hi @Hg229. Thanks for reaching out to me! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you create, and I think the WWUG members are, too. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:47, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,
