Hello. Help add image for Maureen Wroblewitz. Thank you. 125.214.51.197 ( talk) 06:29, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

I would be happy to but there doesn't appear to be any images of her in Wikimedia commons, nor can I easily find any appropriately licensed images to add to Wikimedia commons for reuse in Wikipedia. If you load an appropriately licensed image into Wikimedia commons I'd be happy to add it into her article. -- Ambrosia10 ( talk) 06:34, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks again for your help!

Hi Ambrosia, thanks for your help at the Edit for equity workshops! A couple of queries: I've made these pages so far: Barbara Else, Anna Mackenzie, Mary-anne Scott, Kyle Mewburn and Rachael Craw. I've added photos for Anna (which she uploaded), did I do that correctly?? For the most recent one – Rachael, I’ve added Categories and Banners, but I can't remember all the steps for Authority control and linking to wiki data. What comes after Edit, and Insert Template? Is there a Help page anywhere for that? Thanks again! -- Pippipip ( talk) 21:31, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Done. Answered on Pippipip's talk page.-- Ambrosia10 ( talk) 01:28, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Me again with another query! I've created a page for NZ children's/YA writer Cath Mayo. It shows up if you search on Cath Mayo from the main Wikipedia page, but it's not showing up on a Google search. I added her name to the Edit for Equity Arts and Literature page, but i think maybe that's not enough and her page is an "orphan", would that be why it doesn't show up on Google? The only other place I can think to add a wiki link is on the List of NZ literary awards under Storylines, but there are a lot of titles and it will take a while to add them all! Any other suggestions? Thank you!! -- Pippipip ( talk) 08:37, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Done. Left message on Pippipip's talk page. Ambrosia10 ( talk) 17:58, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! I have had a look at the Wikidata tutorials and managed to add a reference for the Goodreads author page, yay. A whole lot more to learn now!! Thanks again -- Pippipip ( talk) 19:02, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Pleased to meet you

Just read the nice story in stuff, and had a longshot thought. If you are ever up Bay Of Islands way, drop me a note on my talk and maybe we can meet up for coffee. I have a friend Helen up here who is locally known as the Butterfly Lady who is very knowledgeable about all sorts of little critters. She takes small parties from cruise ships in to the Puketi (mainly) and Omahuta forests to show them tusked weta, kauri snail, bats etc, etc. As I understand it, she has photographed some unusual moths in Puketi which she has been unable to identify. Helen and her husband Richard both chatted with @ Giantflightlessbirds: at Kerikeri last month, as did I, and I have been trying to get them to become Wikipedians. Still working on it. Cheers.

Signpost article about moths and butterflies?

Thanks for speaking up at WikiCite about your moth project.

I have been meaning to write an article profiling the Wiki Loves Butterfly project. My draft is at User:Bluerasberry/signpost butterfly. To what extent would you have time and interest in writing any journalism about your project or anything else in the moth space? I was imagining that if we had two stories, we could combine them into one feature and showcase them both in The Signpost.

Let's chat a bit at the hackathon.

ORES tool

Hi Siobhan, It was nice chatting with you regarding the new ORES tool. Take a look at this. -- Rosiestep ( talk) 23:39, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Advice please!!

Would appreciate some advice if you have a moment! I’ve been working on creating pages for NZ writers and literary awards and residencies. A page I put up earlier was queried for notability by someone who commented on my talk page, but after a bit of discussion we sorted that out. This new page for James Norcliffe has also just been queried for notability, but the person who added the maintenance template hasn’t put anything on the talk page or on my talk page - so what steps should I take to remove it? Is it OK to add a couple more citations (altho’ actually I think it does contain enough reliable secondary sources already, eg links to publishers and literary websites) and then remove the template, or should I put some comment on the talk page, or on the editor’s talk page? Thank you!-- Pippipip ( talk) 23:19, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank for your advice! I have added a few more citations and gone to that user's talk page to explain what I've done. I see what you mean about possible "press releases" and publisher websites maybe not being seen as reliable external sources, eg compared with newspapers. Also some blogs are well known and highly regarded in NZ but again maybe not seem as such a reliable source elsewhere. Thanks again! -- Pippipip ( talk) 19:06, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

More advice please!

Hope you are having a good weekend of editing and wiki work! I've just had an editor go through most of the pages I created and revert one of the categories (taking out NZ writers where it also lists NZ women writers and NZ children's writers). There seems to be an ongoing discussion on this editor's talk page about this - and specifically about this category (and see the heading A need for guidance: /info/en/?search=Wikipedia_talk:Categorization#A_need_for_guidance) Seems to me that if you take all the women/children's writers out of NZ writers, you'll only be left with male writers in that category. Do you think it's OK to post on the editor's talk page saying so, and then re-revert them? Thank you!

Hi @ Pippipip:, I've never come across a situation like this before but, having read that discussion, would agree with you that this is a legitimate issue. I know there has been some debate about Wikipedia categories that separate off women as a subset of a more general category. I think your plan is a good one. However if it were me I would also check in with @Giantflightlessbirds to see what he thinks as he may have come across this issue and be able to give you more guidance.

Fundamental changes being discussed at WikiProject Biology

On 23 May, user Prometheus720 created a talk page post, "Revamp of Wikiproject Biology--Who is In?". In the days since, WP:BIOL has been bustling with activity, with over a dozen editors weighing in on this discussion, as well as several others that have subsequently spawned. An undercurrent of thought is that WP:BIOL has too many subprojects, preventing editors from easily interacting and stopping a "critical mass" of collaboration and engagement. Many mergers and consolidations of subprojects have been tentatively listed, with a consolidation of WikiProjects Genetics + Molecular and Cell Biology + Computational Biology + Biophysics currently in discussion. Other ideas being aired include updating old participants lists, redesigning project pages to make them more user-friendly, and clearly identifying long- and short-term goals.

Editor Spotlight: These editors want you to write about dinosaurs

Editors FunkMonk and Jens Lallensack had a very fruitful month, collaborating to bring two dinosaur articles to GA and then nominating them both for FA. They graciously decided to answer some questions for the first ToL Editor Spotlight, giving insight to their successful collaborations, explaining why you should collaborate with them, and also sharing some tidbits about their lives off-Wikipedia.

1) Enwebb: How long have you two been collaborating on articles?

  • Jens Lallensack: I started in the German Wikipedia in 2005 but switched to the English Wikipedia because of its very active dinosaur project. My first major collaboration with FunkMonk was on Heterodontosaurus in 2015.
  • FunkMonk: Yeah, we had interacted already on talk pages and through reviewing each other's articles, and at some point I was thinking of expanding Heterodontosaurus, and realised Jens had already written the German Wikipedia version, so it seemed natural to work together on the English one. Our latest collaboration was Spinophorosaurus, where by another coincidence, I had wanted to work on that article for the WP:Four Award, and it turned out that Jens had a German book about the expedition that found the dinosaur, which I wouldn't have been able to utilise with my meagre German skills. Between those, we also worked on Brachiosaurus, a wider Dinosaur Project collaboration between several editors.

2) Enwebb: Why dinosaurs?

  • JL: Because of the huge public interest in them. But dinosaurs are also highly interesting from a scientific point of view: key evolutionary innovations emerged within this group, such as warm-bloodedness, gigantism, and flight. Dinosaur research is, together with the study of fossil human remains, the most active field in paleontology. New scientific techniques and approaches tend to get developed within this field. Dinosaur research became increasingly interdisciplinary, and now does not only rely on various fields of biology and geology, but also on chemistry and physics, among others. Dinosaurs are therefore ideal to convey scientific methodology to the general public.
  • FM: As outlined above, dinosaurs have been described as a "gateway to science"; if you learn about dinosaurs, you will most likely also learn about a lot of scientific fields you would not necessarily be exposed to otherwise. On a more personal level, having grown up with and being influenced by various dinosaur media, it feels pretty cool to help spread knowledge about these animals, closest we can get to keeping them alive.

3) Enwebb: Why should other editors join you in writing articles related to paleontology? Are you looking to attract new editors, or draw in experienced editors from other areas of Wikipedia?

  • JL: Because we are a small but active and helpful community. Our Dinosaur collaboration, one of the very few active open collaborations in Wikipedia, makes high-level writing on important articles easier and more fun. Our collaboration is especially open to editors without prior experience in high-level writing. But we do not only write articles: several WikiProject Dinosaur participants are artists who do a great job illustrating the articles, and maintain an extensive and very active image review system. In fact, a number of later authors started with contributing images.
  • FM: Anyone who is interested in palaeontology is welcome to try writing articles, and we would be more than willing to help. I find that the more people that work on articles simultaneously with me, the more motivation I get to write myself. I am also one of those editors who started out contributing dinosaur illustrations and making minor edits, and only began writing after some years. But when I got to it, it wasn't as intimidating as I had feared, and I've learned a lot in the process. For example anatomy; if you know dinosaur anatomy, you have a very good framework for understanding the anatomy of other tetrapod animals, including humans.

4) Enwebb: Between the two of you, you have over 300 GA reviews. FunkMonk, you have over 250 of those. What keeps you coming back to review more articles?

  • FM: One of the main reasons I review GANs is to learn more about subjects that seem interesting (or which I would perhaps not come across otherwise). There are of course also more practical reasons, such as helping an article on its way towards FAC, to reduce the GAN backlog, and to "pay back" when I have a nomination up myself. It feels like a win-win situation where I can be entertained by interesting info, while also helping other editors get their nominations in shape, and we'll end up with an article that hopefully serves to educate a lot of people (the greater good).
  • JL: Because I enjoy reading Wikipedia articles and like to learn new things. In addition, reviews give me the opportunity to have direct contact with the authors, and help them to make their articles even better. This is quite rewarding for me personally. But I also review because I consider our GA and FA system to be of fundamental importance for Wikipedia. When I started editing Wikipedia (the German version), the article promotion reviews motivated me and improved my writing skills a lot. Submitting an article for review requires one to get serious and take additional steps to bring the article to the best quality possible. GAs and FAs are also a good starting point for readers, and may motivate them to become authors themselves.

5) Enwebb: What are your editing preferences? Any scripts or gadgets you find invaluable?

  • FM: One script that everyone should know about is the duplink highlight tool. It will show duplinks within the intro and body of a given article separately, and it seems a lot of people still don't know about it, though they are happy when introduced to it. I really liked the citationbot too (since citation consistency is a boring chore to me), but it seems to be blocked at the moment due to some technical issues.
  • JL: I often review using the Wikipedia Beta app on my smartphone, as it allows me to read without needing to sit in front of the PC. For writing, I find the reference management software Zotero invaluable, as it generates citation templates automatically, saving a lot of time.
    • Editor's note: I downloaded Zotero and tried it for the first time and think it is a very useful tool. More here.

6) Enwebb: What would surprise the ToL community to learn about your life off-wiki?

  • FM: Perhaps that I have no background in natural history/science, but work with animation and games. But fascination with and knowledge of nature and animals is actually very helpful when designing and animating characters and creatures, so it isn't that far off, and I can actually use some of the things I learn while writing here for my work (when I wrote the Dromaeosauroides article, it was partially to learn more about the animal for a design-school project).
  • JL: That I am actually doing research on dinosaurs. Though I avoid writing about topics I publish research on, my Wikipedia work helps me to keep a good general overview over the field, and quite regularly I can use what I learned while writing for Wikipedia for my research.

Kia ora!

Thanks for the welcome. This is a good prompt for me to crack on.... I'd like to get to the point where doing this is as natural as sending a text. Barbaliciousnz ( talk) 23:21, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Barbuliscious, Just to let you know I've found a couple of digital resources that may be of assistance any Dowse work - there's this book and this list from a thesis. I know the latter concentrate on printmakers but I'm finding a lot of the women listed also did crafts as well. Anyway, I thought I'd share the links. I hope you can make it to the Archives editathon as that will really help you increase your skills. But picking an existing article about any of the women listed in that first book I've mentioned and then expanding the content of the article with any information found in there and citing it as a reference would be a great way to start getting your edit count up. I know I'm probably telling you how to suck eggs (so to speak) but be careful to make sure you add the information in your own words but reference it with the book citation. Hope this helps! Ambrosia10 ( talk) 23:46, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Page parameter

Kia ora, Siobhan. Regarding this edit, please allow me to point out that this detail (pages=316) is probably based on a misunderstanding. What goes into that field is the page reference that this citation refers to. It is *not* meant to give the number of pages of a document. So it was either meant to be page=316 (i.e. singular; you wanted to point to that page), or pages=316–? (i.e. you wanted to point to a range of pages), or should be page=? (i.e. singular; you want to point to a specific page yet to be specified). Any questions please ask. Schwede 66 22:55, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Schwede66, Thanks for the guidance. I very much appreciate the correction. I've looked at that edit and it appears I used the visual editor citoid tool to generate that reference. I believe I added (or at least intended to add) the 316 in the "cited page(s)" box provided by citoid tool to generate reference as that was the page I was wanting to point to in the reference. If the citoid tool asking me to fill in an incorrect field? I had assumed that "page(s)" implies it would be ok to put in either a page or a range. I'm happy to try to remember to manually edit the citoid tool to find the "page" field singular when adding a single page citation. Ambrosia10 ( talk) 01:06, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
Oh, that's bad of the tool. Yes, you'd have to manually change it to singular if that is what the tool does. Otherwise, with such a high page number, everybody would think that you've used the total number of pages with this field. Schwede 66 03:59, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Spineless editors overwhelmed by stubs

Within the Tree of Life and its many subprojects, there is an abundance of stubs. Welcome to Wikipedia, what's new, right? However, based on all wikiprojects listed (just over two thousand), the Tree of Life project is worse off in average article quality than most. Based on the concept of relative WikiWork (the average number of "steps" needed to have a project consisting of all featured articles (FAs), where stub status → FA consists of six steps), only seven projects within the ToL have an average rating of "start class" or better. Many projects, particularly those involving invertebrates, hover at an average article quality slightly better than a stub. With relative WikiWorks of 5.98 each, WikiProject Lepidoptera and WikiProject Beetles have the highest relative WikiWork of any project. Given that invertebrates are incredibly speciose, it may not surprise you that many articles about them are lower quality. WikiProject Beetles, for example, has over 20 times more articles than WikiProject Cats. Wikipedia will always be incomplete, so we should take our relatively low WikiWork as motivation to write more articles that are also better in quality.

Editor Spotlight: Showing love to misfit taxa

We're joined for this month's Editor Spotlight by NessieVL, a long-time contributor who lists themselves as a member of WikiProject Fungus, WikiProject Algae, and WikiProject Cephalopods.

1) Enwebb: How did you come to edit articles about organisms and taxonomic groups?

  • Nessie: The main force, then and now, driving me to create or edit articles is thinking "Why isn't there an article on that on Wikipedia?" Either I'll read about some rarely-sighted creature in the deep sea or find something new on iNaturalist and want to learn more. First stop (surprise!) is Wikipedia, and many times there is just a stub or no page at all. Sometimes I just add the source that got me to the article, not sometimes I go deep and try to get everything from the library or online journals and put it all in an article. The nice thing about taxa is the strong precedent that all accepted extant taxa are notable, so one does not need to really worry about doing a ton of research and having the page get removed. I was super worried about this as a new editor: I still really dislike conflict so if I can avoid it I do. Anyway, the most important part is stitching an article in to the rest of Wikipedia: Linking all the jargon, taxonomers, pollinators, etc., adding categories, and putting in the correct WikiProjects. Recently I have been doing more of the stitching-in stuff with extant articles. The last deep-dive article I made was Karuka at the end of last year, which is a bit of a break for me. I guess it's easier to do all the other stuff on my tablet while watching TV.

2) Enwebb: Many editors in the ToL are highly specialized on a group of taxa. A look at your recently created articles includes much diversity, though, with viruses, bacteria, algae, and cnidarians all represented—are there any commonalities for the articles you work on? Would you say you're particularly interested in certain groups?

  • Nessie: I was a nerd from a time when that would get you beat up, so I like odd things and underdogs. I also avoid butting heads, so not only do I find siphonophores and seaweeds fascinating I don't have to worry about stepping on anyone's toes. I go down rabbitholes where I start writing an article like Mastocarpus papillatus because I found some growing on some rocks, then in my research I see it is parasitized by Pythium porphyrae, which has no article, and how can that be for an oomycete that oddly lives in the ocean and also attacks my tasty nori. So then I wrote that article and that got me blowing off the dust on other Oomycota articles, encouraged by the pull of propagating automatic taxoboxes. Once you've done the taxonomy template for the genus, well then you might as well do all the species now that the template is taken care of for them too. and so on until I get sucked in somewhere else. I think it's good to advocate for some of these 'oddball' taxa as it makes it easier for editors to expand their range from say plants to the pathogenic microorganisms of their favorite plant.
My favorite clades though, It's hard to pick for a dilettante like me. I like working on virus taxonomy, but I can't think of a specific virus species that I am awed by. Maybe Tulip breaking virus for teaching us economics or Variola virus for having so many smallpox deities, one of which was popularly sung about by Desi Arnaz and then inspired the name of a cartoon character who was then misremembered and then turned into a nickname for Howard Stern's producer Gary Dell'Abate. Sorry, really had to share that chain, but for a species that's not a staple food it probably has the most deities. But anyway, for having the most species that wow me, I love a good fungus or algae, but that often is led by my stomach. Also why I seem to research so many plant articles. You can't eat siphonophores, at least I don't, but they are fascinating with their federalist colonies of zooids. Bats are all amazing, but the task force seems to have done so much I feel the oomycetes and slime moulds need more love. Same thing with dinosaurs (I'm team Therizinosaurus though). But honestly, every species has that one moment in the research where you just go, wow, that's so interesting. For instance, I loved discovering that the picture-winged fly ( Delphinia picta) has a mating dance that involves blowing bubbles. Now I keep expecting them to show me when they land on my arm, but no such luck yet.

3) Enwebb: I noticed that many of your recent edits utilize the script Rater, which aids in quickly reassessing the quality and importance of an article. Why is it important to update talk page assessments of articles? I also noticed that the quality rating you assign often aligns with ORES, a script that uses machine-learning to predict article quality. Coincidence?

  • Nessie: I initially started focusing on WikiProject talk page templates because they seem to be the key to data collecting and maintenance for articles, much more so than categories. This is where you note of an article needs an image, or audio, or a range map. It's how the cleanup listing bot sorts articles, and how Plantdrew does his automated taxobox usage stats. The latter inspired me to look for articles on organisms that are not assigned to any ToL WikiProjects which initially was in the thousands. I got it down to zero with just copypasta so you can imagine I was excited when I saw the rater tool. Back then I rated everything stub/low because it was faster: I couldn't check every article for the items on the B-class checklists. Plus each project has their own nuances to rating scales and I thought the editors in the individual projects would take it from there. I also thought all species were important, so how can I choose a favorite? Now it is much easier with the rater tool and the apparent consensus with Abductive's method of rating by the pageviews (0-9 views/day is low, 10-99 is med, 100-999 is high...). For the quality I generally go by the ORES rating, you caught me. It sometimes is thrown off by a long list of species or something, but it's generally good for stub to C: above that needs formal investigation and procedures I am still learning about. It seems that in the ToL projects we don't focus so much on getting articles to GA/FA so it's been harder to pick up. It was a little culture shock when I went on the Discord server and it seemed everyone was obsessed with getting articles up in quality. I think ToL is focusing on all the missing taxa and (re)organizing it all, which when you already have articles on every anime series or whatever you can focus on bulking the articles up more. In any event, on my growing to-do list is trying to get an article up to FA or GA and learn the process that way so I can better do the quality ratings and not just kick the can down the road.

4) Enwebb: What, if anything, can ToL and its subprojects do to better support collaboration and coordination among editors? How can we improve?

  • Nessie: I mentioned earlier that the projects are the main way maintenance is done. And it is good that we have a bunch of subprojects that let those tasks get broken up into manageable pieces. Frankly I'm amazed anything gets done with WikiProject Plants with how huge its scope is. Yet this not only parcels out the work but the discussion as well. A few editors like Peter coxhead and Plantdrew keep an eye on many of the subprojects and spread the word, but it's still easy for newer editors to get a little lost. There should be balance between the lumping and splitting. The newsletter helps by crossing over all the WikiProjects, and if the discord channel picked up that would help too. Possibly the big Enwiki talk page changes will help as well.

5) Enwebb: What would surprise the ToL community to learn about your life off-Wikipedia?

  • Nessie: I'm not sure anything would be surprising. I focus on nature offline too, foraging for mushrooms or wild plants and trying to avoid ticks and mosquitos. I have started going magnet fishing lately, more to help clean up the environment than in the hopes of finding anything valuable. But it would be fun to find a weapon and help solve a cold case or something.

I also have received a list of artists from the Dowse they would like to focus on for the wiki event. I popped the wiki event up on FB NZ wiki and over the next few weeks I am going to put in some pics of the artists work in the event page to make it more engaging. 18 Oct 2019 Barbuliscious ( talk) 23:00, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

(page stalker comment) @ Barbuliscious: It's not as easy as that. It doesn't say who took the photo and that person would usually hold the copyright. It is usually the photographer who can release a photo under a free license. Schwede 66 03:13, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Ah too good to be true. I think it was a selfie by Tracey - I'll go back to her. Barbuliscious ( talk) 03:35, 18 October 2019 (UTC) 18 October 2019

An NZ threatened species

Hi @ Ambrosia10: I had a crack at Carex albula, but as you can see I have failed to get the conservation status_system correct. I am hoping you can fix this. (In the meantime I have asked the keepers of the taxonbar to include NZPCN ids in it, to make life easier. So hopefully that will be up and running for the edit-a-thon. Cheers, MargaretRDonald ( talk) 00:02, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi MargaretRDonald, I've corrected to markup to show the NZ conservation status of the plant. It was a relatively easy fix but for the future the method I use to remember what markup to use is as follows. If you look at the diagram commons category you can see the current template images, click on the appropriate one which will then take you to the image with instances of the use. Use those examples to give the appropriate markup to use in the infoboxes. Thanks also for suggesting the inclusion of the NZPCN in the taxonbar as that's a great idea! Ambrosia10 ( talk) 01:05, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, very much. (I might almost be set for this thing). MargaretRDonald ( talk) 01:08, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
Had a crack at Carex berggrenii which is Dec under NZTCS. But neither D nor Dec worked for me when trying to get the status system going - despite checking out the diagram commons category which seemed to suggest D... Am hoping you can work your magic for me again. Cheers, MargaretRDonald ( talk) 06:47, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
MargaretRDonald, I've just had an attempt at using this with no luck! I too am a bit stumped as to what is going on. BUT, I've got an editathon today with Giantflightlessbirds who updated these so hopefully he can fix the issue. It must have an error or omission as no one appears to have used this status on an article. Thanks for discovering this before the editathon! - 17:22, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
It looks like only some statuses are implemented in {{ Taxobox/species}} for NZTCS. The syntax to extend it looks quite straightforward, but although I have the permissions to edit it I don't have much experience of complex templates, and the consequences of getting it wrong are dire as this template will be indirectly used in hundreds of thousands of articles. If @ Giantflightlessbirds: isn't available, I suggest you ask someone with the template editor permission (see the list) to add which statuses make sense to you - at least the "D" status which should link to File:Status NZTCS D.svg with a status description of "Declining".- gadfium 03:47, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Yes, we need someone to rewrite the template to replace the old RR, Sp, GD, and DD categories with the new NU, Rel, R, and D. The table on File:Status NZTCS D.svg lays it all out. I've created all the graphics but don't know anything about template code. I'll ask someone from the Template Editor list to help out. — Giantflightlessbirds ( talk) 07:31, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the update, @ Giantflightlessbirds: (and the fact that it is now working). MargaretRDonald ( talk) 20:08, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Women in Red

Hi there, Ambrosia10, and welcome to Women in Red. I'm glad to see after creating so many biographies of women over the past few years, you've finally decided to become a member. Please let me know if you run into any difficulties or need assistance.-- Ipigott ( talk) 07:07, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Ipigott, to tell you the truth I thought I'd joined ages ago! Surprised to see my username wasn't on the list today and rectified asap! Thanks for the offer and I'll definitely let you know if I need anything. Ambrosia10 ( talk) 07:20, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
You were in fact on our mailing list but not on the membership list. I thought you were one of those on the mailing list who didn't want to be an official member. Glad it's been sorted out. Maybe you would like to contribute to our ideas page if you have any suggestions for our future events.-- Ipigott ( talk) 10:08, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
