US Airways Flight 1549 detail discrepancy to resolve[edit]

Hi. Would you please take a look at this detail re. US Airways Flight 1549 and contribute to resolving the discrepancy b/w what's stated in the article, what's logically possible, and what's reported in at least half of the sources cited? Greatly appreciate your attention to this matter and hope it is something that can be resolved quickly and w/o complication. Thanks, Azx2 19:21, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited William Barber II, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mother Jones. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

RefScript[edit]

Hi! You have to make a bookmark. Instead of putting into the bookmark an URL, you put the script. It's a nice feature of modern internet browsers, so you can create bookmarks that run scripts - they are called Bookmarklets. I have added a "How to use the script" section to the page. I should have made such a section from the beginning. Please tell me if it can help you to create the bookmarklet. If you have any questions, please ask me - it will help me to make the script more user-friendly. Also, if the script doesn't work well with a particular newspaper article, please let me know it. Sometimes the script might not capture the publication date or the author name. That's because some newspaper use more than one formatting style or they simply change the way they publish those fields. Therefore I have to update the script sometimes. Thanks. —  Ark25  (talk) 23:42, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

This is much easier than having to surf to another URL (you would have to make a bookmark for that URL anyways). You click the bookmarklet just like clicking any bookmark and you get the formatted reference. I have no idea where can I save my script in a website - that would be more complicated to use and would require me to modify the script. Although it would help the users to have an idea what the script does and how it works. —  Ark25  (talk) 00:14, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks! I'll try it out when I have time. I did a couple test runs just now, on HuffPost and WSJ. Here's what I got: for HuffPost[1], and for WSJ[2]. It didn't grab the author, but not bad! :-) Tks again. Benefac (talk) 19:15, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
I updated the script for Huffington[3] and I added WSJ[4] - although I only tested this single link for WSJ.
If you want to title case the author name (transform "CAROLYN THOMPSON" into "Carolyn Thompson", then change the var AuthorNameTitleCase = "No"; into var AuthorNameTitleCase = "Yes";). It will work most of the time, sometimes it will not do it correctly if the author name is too complicated - it will make it like "Carolyn thompson" or so). Thanks for feedback :) —  Ark25  (talk) 21:28, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! Btw, I'm not familiar with corresponding on Wikipedia. Do you get notified when I reply to your comment in my own Talk page? (I suppose only if you choose to Watch my talk page?) Is the norm that I reply to you here, to keep a single thread, or that I go comment in your Talk page? (The latter would be rather disjointed, I'd think.) Tks again! Benefac (talk) 23:25, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for late answer. Yes, that's the best way to make conversations, on a single thread. I do not get notified but I can see that you edited this page in my watchlist. If you want to notify me, then add {{u|Ark25}} and then I get a notification. It's a new and very nice feature to let someone know that you replied to them or to invite someone to join a conversation or to let them know that you talk about them. In this case it's not really needed, I am supposed to check if you replied to me in your own user talkpage. I will put a {{u|Benefac}} on a talk page to invite you to make comments there :) —  Ark25  (talk) 22:47, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way, if you have any beginner questions, don't hesitate to ask me. I'll try to be helpful. There is also a whole project for such things. —  Ark25  (talk) 23:03, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Shooting of Akai Gurley[edit]

Thanks you for your work improving and cleaning up the John Crawford III article. Currently I'm trying to do the same with the Shooting of Akai Gurley article and I'd love you to take a look at it. Artw (talk) 21:34, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks so much for your thorough defense of keeping the article. This is why I work on Wikipedia: to learn.--Aichik (talk) 01:34, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
