For overhauling bugchasing — an "underresearched but important topic" — and elevating it to good article status, using your fine writing skills which I would characterize as dashing. — The Most Comfortable Chair 12:11, 13 June 2021 (UTC)[]
My most sincere thanks to you, The Most Comfortable Chair, for your comments, suggestions, grace, and enthusiasm. I hope we run into one another soon and often. Urve (talk) 12:12, 13 June 2021 (UTC)[]

DYK for Bugchasing[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 27 June 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Bugchasing, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that some men purposely have sex in order to become infected with HIV? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Bugchasing. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Bugchasing), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Thank you for the suggestion[edit]

Hello @Urve: I wanted to thank you for the suggestion about Wikipedia Library you gave me a while ago. I have since applied for and gotten access to Newspapers.com, and it has been incredible. It is far better in both quantity and convenience when compared to the Library of Congress newspaper archive. Not to mention, I didn't realize I had access to other very useful resources through Wikipedia Library I didn't even need to apply for, such as JSTOR and ProQuest. Thank you for letting me know what resources I had at my disposal. RoundSquare (talk) 19:12, 29 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@RoundSquare: I am so glad to hear this. The Wikipedia library has saved me a number of times -- in starting articles like Proseminar in Homophile Studies and the North Platte black exodus, where sources otherwise don't really exist, and in repairing other articles that already existed. Hearing that you also find it useful shows that TWL is a great resource that should continue to be funded by the WMF. As a side note, there are probably some gaps in Newspapers.com's coverage. In Nebraska especially, there is a considerable gap. Thankfully (and this may be the case elsewhere) our state's main university has digitized a lot of newspapers and provided OCR rendering, too. So while the LOC is great, and so is TWL, maybe there are others available :) Urve (talk) 05:28, 30 July 2021 (UTC)[]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 9 October 2021, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Proseminar in Homophile Studies, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Proseminar in Homophile Studies. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Proseminar in Homophile Studies), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page.

Precious[edit]

Willa Cather

Cornflower blue Yogo sapphire.jpg

Thank you for quality articles such as Proseminar in Homophile Studies, Willa Cather, The Best Years (story) and Arnold Comes of Age, for GA reviewing, for sensitive images, for "your help made the article better", - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

You are recipient no. 2664 of Precious, a prize of QAI. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:22, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Thank you! A welcome surprise to awake to... Much of what I am trying to write is LGBT and Nebraska history (especially where the two overlap as in the Cather suite of articles), and there are so many holes yet to be filled. There are still four redlinks in {{Willa Cather}} - maybe time to return to editing that area, which after a (well-deserved) failed FAC I lost most of my interest in. I hope to see you around, Gerda, soon and often. Urve (talk) 22:37, 21 October 2021 (UTC)[]
Thank you, feel understood. I had FACs failed, - it's just an invitation to try harder, and even if not, the improved state of an article is worth it. I just nominated one yesterday, - see my user page if you consider reviewing. I promised myself a FAC nine years ago, and still didn't get past a peer review ... - You see me mostly in Classical music, Germany, and recent deaths, - two of those today, and one I was blessed to have seen conducting, last on his farewell tour. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:50, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Fall semester[edit]

I realized I never answered your question on the Proseminar PR about the word "fall"—I think you're right that it's fine in the context of an academic calendar. Good luck with the FAC! DanCherek (talk) 01:07, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Makes sense. Thanks! Urve (talk) 03:55, 22 October 2021 (UTC)[]
