You are very active. Good work. Be sure to sign your entries on all talk pages! Also, it helps to add links to the pages when you refer to them, as you do above with Nicolas Jenson and William Caslon (see how these are linked, and that makes it easier!--Theredproject (talk) 01:13, 20 October 2011 (UTC)Token718 (talk) 03:58, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

After our last class, I studied the William Morris Wikipedia page to get an understanding of the appropriate layout, as well as what types of information the creator(s), decided to use in the making of this wiki page. Upon my analysis I noticed the broad topics were first used such as: life, experience, works…etc. and in turn these generally broad topics were then broken into various section that fit with in each topic of moriss’ life. I would like to do the same for Nicholas Jenson’s page. Now I notices by the effort of fellow classmates some work was added, I wish to take in the generously donated work an expand on it, for example in the table of contents only a history present and an un labeled brief biography. With the given information and by use of the sources I have accumulated, I’m going to add a much more detailed biography for Jenson, and break up his works in typography. By introducing his works throughout the years while providing detailed descriptions on his works, I feel the future readers will find any information the seek with ease. I would also like to inform the readers of any recognition that may have been lost during the years and how Nicholas Jenson’s work has influenced typographers after his time. I plan to accomplish this with any additional information I find, through the sources I choose to provide as well as the references with links, so that the reader may be able to visit the page if they wish.Token718 (talk) 03:56, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Secondary Peer Review (COM232)[edit]

I went over your article, and so far it's going well. There is a problem with your citations/sources, there could be a possibility that you may be citing incorrectly. To fix this, you must use the feference code for all the sources that you are using. They can be found via wikipedia or simple find them within another article with the edit mode.

Also, the two images in your "Published works" section seem out of place, and would be better aligned with the images above or simply remove them and place within your gallery. KatanaBeatsPaper (talk) 19:15, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

thankyou for you insight, i will look into the citation errors and correct them, as for the pictures i was thinkin of join them into one section, although im searching for more pictures to add to the gallery ans published works section. ThankYou Token718 (talk) 01:04, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Your article is doing pretty well so far! However, by mindful of certain words that can be hyperlinked to another wikipedia page, I've done some of them, but others that I've created have been taken out. Also, "French Royal Mint and Tours" should remain in capitals like that, you or someone has been changing it around. This sentence is kind of iffy "Nicholas Jenson has been something of cult figure among students of early printing since the nineteenth century when the aesthete William Morris praised the beauty and perfection of his roman font." It may read better in regards to being a wikipedia article if you take out the "cult figure" part. Also, what happened to the whole beginning blurb part? Did you just move it down and put it under biography? I suggest taking the "biography" section and putting it before the contents box, as that is the format wikipedia follows. Try to avoid words like "although" or "nonetheless" and just stick with the facts of his history, especially since sections where you use these words are usually not cited to anything. Lastly, I think Jenson's page would look much better with a different photo of him, or perhaps one that's just higher res, the current one looks a bit blurry. But great job so far! --Sabinajm (talk) 17:43, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your insight User:Sabinajm i will take into account everthing you had to offer and i am very grateful. Your suggestions on text format and page layout I find to be quite helpful and will make my next revision much easier, Thank you agaian Token718 (talk) 20:47, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
KatanaBeeatsPaper mentions citation errors. What I see are a lot of copyright violations and plagiarism. You can't just copy and paste and then put a citation on it. This is not paraphrasing! Fix these throughout. Examples include but are not limited to: passages copied in full from [8] and [9] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Theredproject (talkcontribs) 22:10, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
