Schools Wikipedia


Okay, I have to ask - what exactly is "Schools Wikipedia", and why are you committing temporary vandalism on some articles to remove "explicit content"? Elizium23 (talk) 17:17, 28 June 2013 (UTC) Hi there, Elizium23. I work for an international children's charity called SOS Children (you can visit our site at http://www.soschildrensvillages.org.uk, and we are currently in the throes of preparing a new, fourth edition of a project called Wikipedia for Schools (or Schools Wikipedia). Schools Wikipedia is a selection of articles from Wikipedia organised around the UK national curriculum and including other articles which may be of use or interest to children. It can be browsed online at http://schools-wikipedia.org (this currently takes you to the 2008/9 selection) and is also available offline and distributed to schools in developing countries where internet access is limited. Previous version have been released offline on CD and DVD, although the new version will be released onto USB stick. All content is manually checked for suitability for children schoolchildren aged 11-15, and because of the range of countries where it is used, we have to be fairly conservative when editing the text. Generally, unsuitable content can be removed without requiring interference with the original Wikipedia site via our editing software, but occasionally (and this is where you come in!), the easiest thing to do is to edit the live Wikipedia page and then self-revert immediately and then upload the clean variant. Sorry if this is a somewhat rambling answer to your question, but I hope it explains why I've been removing and then immediately re-adding supposedly "explicit content" from the site, although I think (hope!) "vandalism" is a rather extreme interpretation! Wikipedia for Schools is supported by the Wikimedia Foundation, after all! You can read more at http://www.sos-schools.org/wikipedia-for-schools, and visit the test site of the new edition at http://schools-wikipedia-test.soschildren.org/. : : I think you need to stop vandalizing wikipedia right now! : In those wikis you link, I don't see any attribution to the authors. Where is it? : Aisteco (talk) 00:50, 29 June 2013 (UTC) I haven't "linked any wikis". All I have done is remove content and then replace it immediately. This results in effetively no change to Wikipedia. Unless I have inadvertently made a mistake in one of my edits (e.g. neglected to self-revert - in which case, please let me know the specific details), I think you may be confusing me with another user. To repeat, Wikipedia for Schools is a charity project endorsed by WMF, and I have made exactly no intentional working change to Wikipedia.

Orphaned non-free image File:Wikipedia for Schools 2013 logo.jpg

Thanks for uploading :File:Wikipedia for Schools 2013 logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media). Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 19:21, 1 September 2016 (UTC)


Success at School moved to draftspace


An article you recently created, Success at School, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please follow the prompts on the Articles for Creation template atop the page.

Proposed deletion of :Success at School


The article :Success at School has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:
Notability not established
While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons. You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:05, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
