Talk to me, Andy Mabbett[edit]

  • If you post a message on this page, I'll reply on this page to avoid fragmenting the discussion.
  • If I've left you a message on your talk page, I will be watching it, so please reply there rather than here (but do feel free to drop a copy of {{Talkback}} here).
  • If appropriate, I will move discussion from here to the relevant article's talk page, so that anyone interested can join in.
  • If you want to start a new discussion thread, please start it at the bottom of the page. Better still, use the "new section" tab next to the "edit this page" tab, or the link at the foot of this section, either of which will do that automatically.
  • Please do not make links from within section headings.
  • Inaccessible HTML (coloured text, "small" tags, etc.) will be removed from this page on sight. Broken heading or list structures will be fixed.
  • Please sign and date your entries by inserting four tildes (~~~~) at the end.

Autopopulate userpage starting info from ORCID[edit]

See meta:Community_Wishlist_Survey_2020/Wikiversity/Autopopulate_userpage_starting_info_from_ORCID

Hi Andy. Given your role as ORCID Wikimedian in Residence, I realised I should post here that I've added a request on a few of these items on the 2020 Community Wishlist Survey. I also notified Brian Minihan at ORCID (email below). Are they also your contact there? Do you know what ORCID's current priorities are for further wikimedia integration?

I'm keen to see more and more integration with Wikimedia and ORCID. There are a couple of items that may be useful to bring to your attention.

From ORCID -> Wikimedia
There is an orcid-relevant proposal at this year's Wikimedia's technical feature wishlist. Voting will begin in the coming weeks. Link below.

From Wikimedia -> Orcid
Some ORCID users include an item called "Wikipedia contributions" or equivalent. (e.g. on 0000-0002-6290-8490). Is there any mechanism by which such users could be able to provide their wikimedia username in order to automatically link to for describing overall contributions, or to individual pages to summarise particular contributions. Obviously, wiki contributions are quite different from scholarly unit contributions, but there are emerging ways of summarising and presenting that data, e.g.:

For a user:
For a Featured Article page:
Or some way that better fits with ORCID's way of organising and keeping data?

I'll be interested to know where orcid see things heading. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 04:34, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Andy, have you had an opportunity to consider adding a sopport/oppose/comment to the ORCID community wishlist item? It would be good to get your feedback as ORCID's official Wikipedian in residence on whether it's possible. What're ORCID's priorities for wikimedia engagement through 2020? It'd be useful to know whether more can be done with them. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 06:33, 3 December 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I thought I had posted support. Your message prompted me to check, and when I tried again, I'd missed the deadline :-( As for your original question, I'm awaiting feedback from ORCID following a staff meeting where a number of related issues were to be discussed.

The Signpost: 29 November 2019[edit]

Signpost gallery comment[edit]

Hi, you recently left a comment at Wikipedia talk:Wikipedia Signpost/Next issue/Gallery. It should probably be moved to a more relevant talk page like Wikipedia talk:Wikipedia Signpost/2019-11-29/Gallery or WT:POST/N so that it will be noticed, and because it likely won't be relevant to the next draft Gallery article. (I only came across it because I'm tagging talkpages of the drafts for regular columns with {{Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/Templates/Use newsroom}}) Thanks, - Evad37 [talk] 10:05, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Thank you. It was relevant to the corresponding page when I left it there. It was User:Chris troutman who moved that page but not my comment; no doubt now that he's aware, he will fix it. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:50, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
