Suggestions at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Mongoose Gang[edit]

Hello, your case will be greatly stronger if you can add a few more, and more formal, sources. Your best bet is to go to GoogleBooks and search "mongoose gang grenada". Find some serious academic books (ideally not simple tourist guides) that discuss the gang, its actions, its role, etc. and then add and footnote said info. Note that you can instantly form a WP footnote just by copying the URL in your address bar (once you are inside an individual book) and pasting it into http://reftag.appspot.com

Great topic, good start, just strengthen it up with a little more info, with backing from some heavier-hitters in the academic and journalistic world. Good luck! MatthewVanitas (talk) 19:25, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Did you check GoogleBooks for Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Mongoose Gang?[edit]

Neat topic, great gap to fill in, and your second draft is much improved. One question though, have you checked GoogleBooks for coverage? There are a bunch of serious scholarly books that cover these guys, and those are much stronger references than some of the more casual sites you're using now. Consider doing a sweep through gBooks, maybe finding a few more interesting facts, get a few more strong footnotes. Note also you can instantly turn gBooks URLs into WP footnotes using http://reftag.appspot.com MatthewVanitas (talk) 19:56, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Edits to the article Sonny Banks[edit]

Hi, I am contacting you regarding the large edit you made to the article on Sonny Banks in January of last year. In several places you added links for the Graystone Ballroom, but piped these links to the word "Ballroom". This was not the best idea, and I am contacting you to explain why. Because you linked to the generic term "Ballroom", the link was blue and not red. This signals to the reader that the article on the Graystone Ballroom already exists (which, to date, it does not). Moreover, when the article on the Graystone Ballroom is created (which it is about to be) your link will not take the reader to it! It would have been better if you had either left the entries with no wikilinks at all or had included them as a red links-- there is nothing wrong with red links! I have now gone over your entries and corrected these generic pipes so that they can point to the article on the Graystone Ballroom. There is something more difficult than I can explain about why it is seldom a good idea to pipe a specific entry like "Graystone Ballroom" to a generic article like "Ballroom", but I am not sure I can articulate it. I hope my example above has done that for you, yes? Because the Graystone Ballroom should get credit for what it is/ was, and although I fully understand you were trying to do that with your piped entries, you ended up doing the opposite: you already checked and saw that there was no existing article on the Graystone and you didn't know if there ever would be, so you piped it in good faith and with good intentions. Now, a year later, there is about to be such an article, and none of your entries would have pointed to it! And that is a shame... Okay, I hope I haven't come off here as browbeating. I only wanted to point this sort of thing out because otherwise it would not be noticed or changed in the future. Thank you!!!! KDS4444Talk 21:02, 20 June 2014 (UTC) =

Parent categories and subcategories[edit]

1982vdven, I was just reviewing some recent edits, and I came across this: diff. Please be advised that it is not appropriate to add a parent category (e.g., Category:University of Miami alumni) to an article, when the article already includes a subcategory thereof (e.g., Category:Miami Hurricanes football players). You may want to review your recent edits for similar problems. Regards, Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 23:10, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

mrombe, dsoma, and kanda articles[edit]

Hi there,

You have recently removed the Simbabwean distance runner group from mrombe d(s)oma and kanda articles.

I know most of these runners (or at least their families). They consider themselves to be simababweans, not rhodesians.

They would object to your grouping of them.

Simbabwe/rhodesia has been sending African distance runners to the Olympic Games since 1960. They all consider themselves to be part of one tradition that is today labelled:"(s)imbabwe distance runners.

These three should be considered part of the group I have alluded to above.

Endo999 (talk) 18:56, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, yes, you raise good points. I try to group athletes based on which nationality they were referred to as when they were active competitive athletes. My thoughts were those athletes were referred to in the press as 'Rhodesian' and represented Rhodesia at the time, and calling them Zimbabwean is an anachronism.

But if they consider themselves to be part of the Zimbabwean tradition than we can include that too.1982vdven (talk) 21:16, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for seeing my point (and the runner's point as well). I think they should be included both both groups: Rhodesian Distance Runners and Zimbabwean Distance Runners. They definitely consider themselves to be Zimbabweans and not Rhodesians, and would most of all like to be included in the Zimbabwean Distance Runners category.
