March_(music)[edit]

Hello, in my opinion it seems the article of marches on http://www.worldbookofmilitarymusic.com was copied from English Wikipedia. There're many interior links lead to Wikipedia, and they are exactly those links appears in the article. It also includes copied material from another article on Wikipedia: Military band. That website even includes copyrighted material: The Military Band of the Chinese People's Liberation Army section was copied from [1] (copyrighted by Chinadaily.com) --Ericmetro (talk) 15:34, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

I had a suspicion as well. I noticed that that site is being taken down pretty soon as well. I think there is already a citations-needed tag at the top of the page, so I will take down the copyright tags and do some research! Thanks for taking a look --Adam Blake (talk) 15:55, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

top shagger[edit]

Burt is a Top Shagger and I want to give him the recognition he deserves!

You have no idea how much I wanted to let that stay in there.Adam Blake (talk) 18:54, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

Please be more careful[edit]

When you reverted some vandalism in Paul Klee you left in the previous, also vandlistic, edit. Please be more careful. Thanks! 63.251.123.2 (talk) 23:45, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

I noticed that! Sorry -- I was going back to fix it when you did. Way to be on the ball Adam Blake (talk) 23:46, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
I only saw it because I'm going through Category:Pages with citation errors. Glad you were about to fix it! 63.251.123.2 (talk) 00:17, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Counter-Vandalism[edit]

I'm pleased to see how you've taken to Wikipedia and I noticed your recent efforts at fixing vandalism. If you're so inclined, check out the Counter-Vandalism Academy. You can select one of the CVUA mentors and they'll take you through the 2-3 week course on counter-vandalism (applicable policies, warning templates, specialty editing tools, etc.). There are a so many places in Wikipedia to get trained or pitch in and I'd be glad to help you find where you want to go with Wikipedia. Chris Troutman (talk) 07:52, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Atkinson-Shiffrin memory model[edit]

Hi and thanks for the message. It's not much, but see Talk:Atkinson–Shiffrin_memory_model#Some_comments. Best wishes, MartinPoulter (talk) 17:27, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Martin! Your comments were actually very helpful. Sometimes it's hard to see that I haven't been as explicit as I could have been --- much different than writing for a journal article. I'll be going back and making edits per your suggestions over the next few days. I appreciate that you took some time to take a look at the article. Best, Adam Blake (talk) 18:18, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

DYK for Disconfirmed expectancy[edit]

Callanecc (talkcontribslogs) 05:02, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Wow, a really useful article, and takes people beyond the widely known Festinger work to a more updated understanding. Nice work. MartinPoulter (talk) 16:57, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

re: Disconfirmed expectancy[edit]

My assessment of the article was based on quick read through. I didn't read it in detail, which would be required for a B-class review. If you'd like such a review, I would recommend asking at Wikipedia:WikiProject Psychology. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 13:07, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

trombone questions[edit]

Hello Adam, you can call me 74. I plucked your name from the Trombone and Types of trombone article. Do you have some time to mess with these things nowadays? There is a beginning-editor person trying to write up something on an annual trombone festival held in Hong Kong; the topic is close to being WP:NOTE enough for a dedicated article, and is definitely WP:NOTEWORTHY for inclusion in some existing article. However, unlike baritone#Artists and brass_band, the trombone-articles don't list the major festivals, except as raw external links e.g. Types of trombones has a couple of the festival-organizers as external links (which makes little sense). Anyhoo, if you would like to help Stanley and myself, it would be appreciated. I've also done some research on our existing trombone-festivals, both of which are stubs, and added the sources to their talkpages, if you feel like working on that stuff.

  1. User_talk:Stanleywlchen#getting_SliderAsia_article_written_correctly , needs analysis of whether enough WP:RS exist, plus help drafting prose neutrally
  2. Talk:International_Trombone_Association#potential_WP:RS, needs sources integrated into the existing article
  3. Talk:Eastern_Trombone_Workshop#potential_WP:RS, needs sources integrated into the existing article
  4. Trombone, possibly needs a new section on festivals/soloists/professors/symphonies/etc (cf baritone and brass band)

Thanks for improving wikipedia. p.s. If you reply here, please leave me a message on my talkpage, so I'll know you did. 74.192.84.101 (talk) 00:33, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
