The Millennial Age Range Bias[change source]

In order to avoid an edit war for the Millennials date range, I will contact a moderator from the main Wikipedia site to settle this. Read the Talks page. This isn't a pop culture site or blog where bias opinions create the definitions. We look for factual citations. The main Wikipedia page for Millennials have the 1981-1996 age range as the primary date. Sources include the United States federal government. Editors have done a terrible job of letting people include outdated sources (such as the New York Times, which has changed to the 1981-1996 this year). In the previous 2021 year, vandalism kept occurring for the Simple Wikipedia Gen Z page, so moderators were forced to include the 1997-2012 range at the very top. 68.62.155.13 (talk) 01:59, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page stalker) We do not have moderators from other Wikipedias who handle debates here. Each Wikipedia has its own admins and we are small and work well together as the main editors. We are able to have discussions on the talk pages without much issue, however, no threats will be tolerated as was issued on the talk page. That is against the rules. This is also the 3rd time you have pinged her for the exact same thing. You only need to leave one message and tag her and she will respond. No need to canvass. Moderators are not forced to do anything nor are editors. We follow policies put in place by a consensus of our community. Right now what we have is an edit war on the article which can get both you and the IPv6 blocked. Take it to the discussion page for the article and resolve it there please and come to a conclusion. However, if you are both this IP and the IPv6 then you would just be talking to yourself which is insane. Da LambTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 02:09, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Helping with a research project in Simplification[change source]

Hello Angela,

I'm reaching out to you because I am working on a research project on simplification and am looking to collaborate with domain experts.

A quick introduction: I am a researcher interested in text simplification and am working towards publishing a resource in text simplification based on Simple Wikipedia (quite a rich encyclopedia). We believe this resource, which we will make public, could be valuable to educate and increasing awareness of text simplification.

Some colleagues and I are looking to collaborate with domain experts in the creation of the resource. We've secured some budget for our research project, so there's the possibility to remunerate a few experts that would work with us.

I do not mean to spam you, so feel free to disregard/delete if you feel this is inappropriate (and I apologize). On the other hand, if you are interested, please feel free to reach out, either directly on Wikipedia or by email (phillab@berkeley.edu) and I would be happy to tell you more.

Thank you, and sorry again if you feel this is inappropriate,

Philippe Laban
