Karanacs talk , 28 March UTC. I ran through the President, see my edit summaries, and inline queries. Wikilinking will need attention, references have some??? All looks easily fixable. I think The President novel is getting very close to being ready for FAC - my guess would be a day or two. If other members of the the FA-Team want to take one last look at it before nomination, that would be appreciated.
More eyes, particularly for MOS and copy editing issues, are always appreciated. Our little FAC checklist is here. Kudos to everyone! Awadewit talk , 2 April UTC. I applaud you all for your work on Wikipedia and bringing up the quality of some interesting articles, nice work! Cirt talk , 4 April UTC.

Another comment of praise. Nice to see such dedication to lesser-known articles.
Look forward to seeing the final results. Kaiser matias talk , 6 April UTC. Many thanks, many thanks! I have to admit we hadn't thought much of the fact that we were addressing wikipedia's anglophone and northern hemisphere bias, but yes! In fact, Mahanga's comment rather inspired at least one of our number, judging by her blog today. So thanks very much for all your encouragement! I wondered why Llosa was featured in english but not in Spanish I was going to translate it.
But, I read the news today and voila, I learned the story! Good job. Brusegadi talk , 3 July UTC. Yo, just stopping by to remind mad murdering mayhem participants that they have only three more days to bring The Feast of the Goat up to GA standard before the article is failed. Someone may want to poke the students responsible. Just wondering; usually with a GA review I try and help fix as much of the nominated article myself, but I have refrained in this case so as not to distort any grading efforts.risunhorenri.gq/990-cines-icaria.php

Are comprehensive, large-scale edits by non-members of MMM welcome in this area helpful or counterproductive? In other words, if I would otherwise fail this article, would you prefer I did what was necessary to pass it? Skomorokh , 10 April UTC. Shout out to Latin American lit fans.

Wassupwestcoast talk , 9 April UTC. If it is, that's hilarious. So, whose stars are all lined up just so. Wassupwestcoast talk , 10 April UTC. Hi everyone, I'm trying to organize a meetup for Vancouver Wikipedians, and we certainly need your participation!
This should be a fun chance for people from all areas of interest and walks of life to get together. You guys are unstoppable! Rock on! Many thanks for your kind words! I hope to get on to it soon. Prof, have you considered the fate of the articles developed under MMM after the project is completed.
Articles are usually at their best just after they become an FA and from then they usually degrade slowly. Once MMM is over and you and the students move away, the same may happen to these articles. Please come to an informal gathering of Vancouver Wikipedians, Monday, May 5 at pm. It will be at Benny's Bagels, West Broadway. We'd love to see you there, and please invite others! Watch the Vancouver Meetup page for details. A proposal to add a symbol identifying Good Articles in a similar manner to Featured ones is being discussed: see Wikipedia talk:Good articles Proposal.
Wassupwestcoast talk , 26 April UTC. Other choices can be found at Category:Wikipedia header templates. I'll leave it to those involved in the project to make the change.

Is it time to write one? Skomorokh , 12 July UTC. Moar Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project.
WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.
Harej talk , 1 October UTC. You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. It's the same in that everyone, even New York Times bestselling authors, struggle to write. It's different for everyone in that everyone has a different process and you just have to find what writing process works for you.
Personally, I really enjoyed learning more about how Gillian Flynn became a writer and her approach to writing in different formats. Over a lunch sponsored by Sisters in Crime Chicagoland, Patricia Skalka skillfully interviewed Gillian Flynn, probing her thoughts on women and violence. I was also amused by the quick-witted banter between Gillian Flynn and Jeffery Deaver in the headlining of the day. As they bounced through topics, they seemed to discover a lot in common, which was fun to see unfold.
To me, that idea pretty much sums up the difference between people who enjoy crime fiction—either as readers or writers—and those who may not. It also showed me that I want to hang out with both of them for non-creepy amounts of time. The award, as Lori explained:. Gillian Flynn is an obvious choice because of her giant success [even, as MC Eric Beetner said during the introductions, with only three books]. Her books are set in Kansas, in Missouri, places that don't often get to be part of blockbuster books—and yet, so many readers live in these places.

They definitely like to see books set where they live, too. The unheralded presence of Sara Paretsky was, I think, genuinely exciting for many. As attendee Raquel Garcia commented—well, gushed:. Sara was kind enough to sign my copy of her book Indemnity Only , which I serendipitously had in my backpack. Her appearance was a complete surprise to audience members. After such an inspirational experience I plan to be back next year! As I will too. Hopefully, as long as the River flows green and the streets flow red, there will be Murder and Mayhem in Chicago…. The first in her new series—set in Prohibition-era Chicago—will be released in summer Your email address will not be published.
