see this t/p thread concerning a query of mine as to a probable WikiEd course. Thanks, WBGconverse 12:00, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

@Winged Blades of Godric: I would defer to Shalor (Wiki Ed) to say for sure, but I'm not seeing a match among our supported sources (based on title, name, or institution, as far as I was able to discern). Is there additional context regarding how this came up? (We're also not connected to Whose Knowledge or part of the WMF). --Ryan (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:51, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
Ryan (Wiki Ed), thanks a lot:-) And, apologies for mentioning that on your volunteer account. And, not much of any additional context. There's a backstory (see my posts on Sitush's t/p) but it's mostly boring and more related to the India-Wikiproject. WBGconverse 14:26, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
  • @Winged Blades of Godric: I couldn't find anything either, nor any true information about what page this was or what pages they worked on - all I could really determine is that they didn't teach with us and were active during fall 2018. Shalor (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:59, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
    Shalor (Wiki Ed), thank you :-) I have been equally clueless about finding any of the targets (the student(s) or the draft or the instructor). WBGconverse 17:05, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Page mover granted[edit]

Wikipedia page mover.svg

Hello, Ryan (Wiki Ed). Your account has been granted the "extendedmover" user right, either following a request for it or demonstrating familiarity with working with article names and moving pages. You are now able to rename pages without leaving behind a redirect, and move subpages when moving the parent page(s).

Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:Page mover for more information on this user right, especially the criteria for moving pages without leaving redirect. Please remember to follow post-move cleanup procedures and make link corrections where necessary, including broken double-redirects when suppressredirect is used. This can be done using Special:WhatLinksHere. It is also very important that no one else be allowed to access your account, so you should consider taking a few moments to secure your password. As with all user rights, be aware that if abused, or used in controversial ways without consensus, your page mover status can be revoked.

Suffrage on Film[edit]

Hi Ryan! I've been thinking more about the topic of suffrage on film and how it could be represented on WP. Suffrage drama seems like a natural analog here, though that tradition is specifically British and stagebound. I'm most familiar with American films about suffrage, but I know that suffrage and feminism more broadly were also represented in films made in France (and other countries with a film industry, I'm sure). So I'm thinking Women's suffrage in film would work as an article, with sections for each country that produced films about women's suffrage. A brief & link could then go into the main women's suffrage pages for each country that has coverage. If you and/or CuriousDaily have a draft or begin one, I'd be happy to contribute! --Nonmodernist (talk) 13:07, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

@Nonmodernist: Hi there. Thanks for the encouragement and offer of help. I hope CuriousDaily will pursue this idea, though I know they are quite busy at the moment. Will certainly ping you if/when the article gets started. :) --Ryan (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:57, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Help on 2 pages[edit]

I recently made a bunch of changes to No Scalpel Vasectomy. I got a message from someone that some (or all?) was undone. I'm not sure why. Can you help me figure that out?

Also, I"m working on the Medical Abortion page and I want to move the Telehealth Abortion section up into Management, but it keeps dropping all the citations. One time it gave me an error about a conflict needing to be resolved. LMK what I should do. Thanks Lookwhatimook (talk) 19:08, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

@Lookwhatimook: Regarding the first part...
@Materialscientist: could you take another look at this edit? looks like a mistake to me. Among other things, the revert restores a section entirely sourced to this source. If not a mistake, could you elaborate about the problems on the talk page? Thanks.
@Materialscientist: Just bumping the above. Since it seems quite likely this was a mistake, if I don't hear from you (you probably get a lot of these notifications -- sorry to add one more), I'm going to suggest Lookwhatimook reinstate the edits. They are certainly not vandalism, and absent any edit summary or talk page message there's not really a lot to go on otherwise. Thanks. --Ryan (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:52, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Regarding the second part, remember that any time you want to copy material with citations, you need to be in edit mode at the time of copying (not just when pasting). That accounts for most citation copying issues. It's possible the conflict was due to different attempts at copying the material in, or someone could've been editing the article at the same time. Try again copying from edit mode and let me know if you run into an issue that way. Also pinging Elysia (Wiki Ed) so she's aware of the matter. --Ryan (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:30, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
Yes, Lookwhatimook, I would imagine you might have had an "edit conflict" on Medical abortion. If you look at the history tab and look at the time stamps of various edits, you can see that the page has been edited by several other editors today, some in close succession. To minimize the likelihood of edit conflicts:
  • Click edit for a specific section instead of the whole article
  • Make small changes and save frequently
These two practices minimize how long a given article is open in "edit" mode, reducing the likelihood you will have edit conflicts with other editors. Thanks, Elysia (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:40, 27 April 2020 (UTC)
