Conflicting sources on birth date of John Penn ("the American")
Asking for an Article Re-Assessment
I have done extensive work on the Penn's Creek massacre page over the last few months and improved the article substantially. It is rated Start Class but I believe it should now have a higher rating. I cannot for the life of me figure out how or where to ask for one - I know I'm not supposed to assess it myself since I'm the one who did the work, but I can't find anywhere to list it to ask for someone else on the Pennsylvania project to do it. Can anyone help me out? Thanks. Lilipo25 (talk) 04:54, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
- Generally speaking, unless an individual Wikiproject has its own set of separate assessment criteria, anyone can assess any article, per Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Assessment FAQ. The ratings are informal and for internal use at Wikipedia, so with the exception of FA, GA, or A-rating classifications (which have separate processes) I think it's fair for you to assess an article that work on yourself as long as you do so in good faith. That being said, I looked over your work, and that article is clearly more than a Start class now, so I've added an assessment to it myself. Nice work! — Hunter Kahn 15:58, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
Request for information on WP1.0 web tool
Hello and greetings from the maintainers of the WP 1.0 Bot! As you may or may not know, we are currently involved in an overhaul of the bot, in order to make it more modern and maintainable. As part of this process, we will be rewriting the web tool that is part of the project. You might have noticed this tool if you click through the links on the project assessment summary tables.
We'd like to collect information on how the current tool is used by....you! How do you yourself and the other maintainers of your project use the web tool? Which of its features do you need? How frequently do you use these features? And what features is the tool missing that would be useful to you? We have collected all of these questions at this Google form where you can leave your response. Walkerma (talk) 04:24, 27 October 2019 (UTC)
Brock Blomberg Article
Hello! I'm Tom and I work for Ursinus College in Montgomery County, just outside Philadelphia (as I state on my profile page and at Talk:Brock Blomberg). I've made a Wikipedia account to address some inaccurate and misleading information on the article about the college's president, Brock Blomberg. I have two outstanding requests: the first is to remove misinterpreted text, and the second is to add what I believe are well-documented details about his career. Most recently, I reached out for help at the biography of living persons noticeboard but I have not yet received a reply.
Might any members of WikiProject Pennsylvania be willing to take a look and update the article on my behalf? I'm avoiding editing the article directly because of my conflict of interest as a representative of the college. Please know this was cross-posted to WikiProject Education as well. Thank you for your consideration! TY Ursinus (talk) 18:27, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
There is an open RfC at Talk:James_Martin_(priest,_born_1960)#Request_for_Comment_2 that may be of interest to this community. --PluniaZ (talk) 21:56, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
