Facebook Group for Georgia Wikipedians[edit]

There are at least 2 different Facebook groups for Georgia Wikipedians, if you are interested. The statewide Georgia (USA) Wikipedians and the Georgia Piedmont Wikimedians (also known as Wikimedia Atlanta). Feel free to meet us there. --TadgStirkland401 (TadgTalk) 06:01, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm in (if approved). Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 06:11, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
@Bubba73: Thanks for joining along with a few others. I hope even more join in the coming weeks. Would be awesome to have an organized Wikipedia Users Group for Georgia. --TadgStirkland401 (TadgTalk) 01:17, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Georgia State Capitol[edit]

There are some comments in Georgia State Capitol#Monuments on the Capitol grounds that, while they are true, they don't seem to be appropriate in the article about the state capitol. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 18:02, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

@Bubba73: Shouldn't this discussion take place on that article's talk page? I agree, the comments don't seem to fit. But I think you'd get more concensus or discussion over there on that page. — TadgStirkland401 (TadgTalk) 18:18, 9 October 2018 (UTC)
I don't want to get into an argument over there. I've already been upset by how "selective" the monuments that were added initially were. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 02:23, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
I can't deal with that editor. First he put on List of Confederate monuments and memorials that a portrait of a governor that wasn't in the capitol was a monument to the Confederacy! I tried to reason with him that something that doesn't exist isn't a monument, to no avail. It might still be in that article - I don't know because I stopped watching it. I said that the stuff about what portraits are in the Capitol should be in its article, so I put it there. Then he added a section about monuments on the grounds, but his list was very selective. I tried to make it into a complete list. Then he made the recent additions that have nothing to do with the Capitol. I can't deal with it. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 16:45, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Well I took it on and cleaned it up. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 02:50, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format[edit]

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

Wrong Georgia flag in some articles.[edit]

While fixing portal links earlier today, I noticed a number of articles on Georgia using the flag of the country of Georgia instead of the state. I fixed the instances that I saw, but some kind of check should be done to confirm that the flag of the country is not being used where the state flag should be. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:12, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Not too surprising, the template for those are confusing. I wonder if there's a tool we can use to check how many pages use the Georgia (country) flag template and go through them to make sure it's not being used incorrectly. Any ideas? SEMMENDINGER (talk) 03:23, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
I tried doing an internal search, but found nothing of use. It may be possible to grab the list of file links from Commons. bd2412 T 05:01, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
Nice idea, this would be a pretty big project. Wonder if there is a tool out there that can pull the pages that use that file and have a talk page with our wikiproject on it. Sounds pretty convoluted when I type it out, but who knows. SEMMENDINGER (talk) 15:38, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Interstate 285[edit]

There is a requested move discussion taking place at Talk:Interstate 285 that people here may be interested in following. –Fredddie 06:14, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. SEMMENDINGER (talk) 17:02, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Quinnes Parker[edit]


The article Quinnes Parker has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

Article appears to have been unsourced since created in July 2015.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:09, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

WP 1.0 Bot Beta[edit]

Hello! Your WikiProject has been selected to participate in the WP 1.0 Bot rewrite beta. This means that, starting in the next few days or weeks, your assessment tables will be updated using code in the new bot, codenamed Lucky. You can read more about this change on the Wikipedia 1.0 Editorial team page. Thanks! audiodude (talk) 06:48, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Euchee Creek[edit]

Could someone please make an article for Euchee Creek? It is fairly important for the western part of the Augusta metropolitan area, especially for Grovetown and the surrounding area. Thank you. Morriswa (Charlotte Allison) (talk) 00:08, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Tree That Owns Itself[edit]

A GA request has been placed on this article. It does need some citations, but is otherwise in good health. Was hoping someone from this project might be interested in fixing it up so it keeps its GA Status. AIRcorn (talk) 03:17, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Sidney Lanier[edit]

Is everything that is named after Sidney Lanier a Confederate monument or memorial? Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 02:21, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

Morgan County[edit]

A lot of stuff in Morgan County, Georgia seemed to be copied from Putnam County. I corrected what I thought was wrong, but someone should check it!! Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 06:52, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Notice of discussions of possible interest to members of this project[edit]

There are discussions currently at both Talk:Stratford Academy and Talk:First Presbyterian Day School on how to present the school's respective histories of segregation. Your participation is invited. John from Idegon (talk) 17:52, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
