Jeanemarie Devolities-Davis[edit]

Last month you listed organizations JDD "participates in." Does she attend their meetings, belong as a member, sit on their boards, or some combination? If she is on their boards, I'd like to add that. If she just attends their meetings, it seems inappropriate to produce such a long list. Acham 05:24, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

affiliations revised[edit]

Dude, many of those groups listed in affiliations aren't even in the reference listed, her bio. For others, the titles weren't correct according to her bio. Please be more accurate, or else delete the whole section. Her bio is referenced, and readers can just go to that if they want to guess how many women's clubs meetings she attends in a quarter. Acham 20:58, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Image:Davis34.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

An image or media file that you uploaded or altered, Image:Davis34.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Images and media for deletion. Please look there to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. — Rebelguys2 talk 03:28, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Katherine Hanley Edits[edit]

In your edit summary for your recent edits to the Katherine Hanley article, you quoted her "official biography' as a source for your edits. I was wondering if you could post a link to the biography if available on-line, or at least officially quote the source on the article page. --TommyBoy (talk) 02:23, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for responding so quickly. --TommyBoy (talk) 02:32, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

In response to the message you posted on my Talk page, I was not trying to raise an objection. Having said that, my concern, based upon applicable Wikipedia polocies and guidelines,was that I had never seen the information you posted prior to the addition of your sources. By the way, thank you for adding the link to her official biography, which appears to be a recent addition to the Virginia Secretary of the Commonwealth's website. I have checked that website multiple times since I created the article waiting for them to post an official biography. Keep up the good work. --TommyBoy (talk) 02:26, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Charles Bronson[edit]

I checked the New York Times retraction; the latest changes are indeed correct. (I guess if you had to wear your sister's dress to school one day, fighting the Japanese was nothing to sweat about.) Clarityfiend (talk) 09:21, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 04:46, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

re: your notice on Prince Csaba[edit]

The article history shows that I added 2 bytes, a paragraph break, back in 2008. I don't remember, but the article may have shown up as an active link in another article or I found it in a random search. I personally don't know anything about the topic. By the way, while I assume you intended to send the same message to all editors of the article, your contribution history shows that you singled me out. As a result, I personally find your message a bit authoritative and heavy handed. Good luck, however. WBardwin (talk) 05:58, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the explantaion. An honest mistake and sooooo easy to do if you're in a hurry. No worries! Have I seen your name on some LDS related articles? Seems familiar. WBardwin (talk) 06:54, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Francine du Plessix Gray[edit]

You did such a good job adding biographical details to Francine du Plessix Gray.[1] She's an interesting figure - I enjoyed her writing before I learned of her family history. Could I encourage you to add some more? The bio stops mid-century, with nothing about her career. Maybe we could work on it together, if you're hesitant.   Will Beback  talk  09:55, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

...doesn't appear to link to your userpage or user talk page. That's a bit odd for a user with significant experience, so perhaps you've made some mistake with the html tags? — Francophonie&Androphilie(Je vous invite à me parler) 19:45, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

It appears you're right. I am a very vanilla user who does not code HTML for this purpose, but relies consistently on the wiki markup signature tag ~~~~. Please let me know if you have a better technique that's also quick and easy. Cheers.

Charles E. Marsh[edit]

Wow, thanks. How did you even know it was on my mind ... ? It was on my Wikiagenda for 2013, so I hope I get to it before the year is done.

Marsh is such a fascinating guy, and his tentacles are everywhere. I've got a stack of LBJ books by Caro, Dallek, et al on my desk, plus several biographies of newspaper publishers and the like who he helped. The fullest treatment of him in any one book may actually be in The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington by Jennet Conant. Dahl was a regular visitor at Marsh's salons/gatherings, much like Henry Wallace, members of FDR's cabinet, etc. He may have been something of a protege to Marsh.

For some reason, my enthusiasm waned somewhat when I found this article[2] already written which heavily paraphrases the Conant book, making me feel less pressed to get a decent-length article about this man out onto the Interweb. I'll certainly try to get back on it; thank you for the encouragement. Woodshed (talk) 04:26, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

An exciting month of wiki events![edit]

Hello there,

I am pleased to say that April will be a very exciting month for Wikipedia in Washington, DC. We have a lot of different events coming up, so you will have a lot to choose from.

First, a reminder that our second annual Women in the Arts Edit-a-Thon will take place on Sunday, March 30 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Coming up in April, we have our first-ever Open Government WikiHack with the Sunlight Foundation on April 5–6! We are working together to use open government data to improve the Wikimedia projects, and we would love your help. All are welcome, regardless of coding or editing experience. We will also be having a happy hour the day before, with refreshments courtesy of the Sunlight Foundation.

On Friday, April 11 we are having our first edit-a-thon ever with the Library of Congress. The Africa Collection Edit-a-Thon will focus on the Library's African and Middle East Reading Room. It'll be early in the morning, but it's especially worth it if you're interested in improving Wikipedia's coverage of African topics.

The following day, we are having our second annual Wiki Loves Capitol Hill training. We will discuss policy issues relevant to Wikimedia and plan for our day of outreach to Congressional staffers that will take place during the following week.

There are other meetups in the works, so be sure to check our meetup page with the latest. I hope to see you at some of these events!

All the best,
James Hare

Ways to improve Myra MacPherson[edit]

Hi, I'm McDoobAU93. Anders.Warga, thanks for creating Myra MacPherson!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. While there is an extensive bibliography and a large number of citations, there's very little content on the author's life. This area could definitely be expanded.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. McDoobAU93 16:12, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

July will also feature the second annual Great American Wiknic in Frederick, Maryland. This year’s Frederick picnic will take place on Sunday, July 6 at Baker Park. Sign up here for the Frederick picnic.
