These 1 restorations from the first 11 months of 2016 make up 0.016% of all featured pictures on English Wikipedia. 2017 started with a long Wikibreak, so my goal for the year is .5%, which currently requires 30.605 restorations. I am currently falling behind this goal, with a projected 0.014% for the year. (Everything in this paragraph is automatically updated.)

Faces of Progress[edit]

A project, in the wake of the 2016 American election, to restore one progressive activist's photograph from at least each state of the continental United States (I have some doubts about how readily accessible images will be for Hawaii and Alaska).

Featured Sounds[edit]

(List not complete by any means - I have 40% of all FSes, so I need to copy over a lot more =) )

Gabriel Fauré's Fantasie (1898), performed circa 1976 by Alex Murray (flute) and Martha Goldstein (piano).
Frog Legs Rag, a classic ragtime piece by James Scott. Performed on a synthesized piano by Wikipedian Adam Cuerden in 2010 with technical assistance from Jujutacular.
Zoltán Kodály's Duo for violin and cello, Op. 7, performed by the U.S. Army Strings.
Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote two sets of Études-Tableaux in 1911 (Op. 33) and 1917 (Op. 39); this recording is one of the pieces in the second, Opus 39 set. Conceived as "picture pieces", meant to evoke a visual scene, Rachmaninoff nonetheless declined to identify which scene he had in mind for most of the pieces, saying, "I don't believe in the artist that discloses too much of his images. Let [the listener] paint for themselves what it most suggests." Performed by Karine Gilanyan for Musopen.

Things I'm working on[edit]

These are things that I'm trying to make into a featured picture, but haven't finished restoring yet. Image shown will generally be a placeholder or possibly a partial restoration.
