January 2014[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia, your addition of one or more external links to the page Karen Olson has been reverted.
Your edit here to Karen Olson was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove links which are discouraged per our external links guideline. The external link(s) you added or changed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL8ZNSRPmLU) is/are on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. If the external link you inserted or changed was to a media file (e.g. a sound or video file) on an external server, then note that linking to such files may be subject to Wikipedia's copyright policy, as well as other parts of our external links guideline. If the information you linked to is indeed in violation of copyright, then such information should not be linked to. Please consider using our upload facility to upload a suitable media file, or consider linking to the original.
If you were trying to insert an external link that does comply with our policies and guidelines, then please accept my creator's apologies and feel free to undo the bot's revert. However, if the link does not comply with our policies and guidelines, but your edit included other, constructive, changes to the article, feel free to make those changes again without re-adding the link. Please read Wikipedia's external links guideline for more information, and consult my list of frequently-reverted sites. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! --XLinkBot (talk) 03:27, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

thanks for the input. I have re-entered my edits of the Karen Olson article, leaving out the external links that caused the entire article to be reverted to its previous state. I hope this meets Wikipedia's requirements. --Cakaul (talk) 05:23, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

I have added some photos and inline citations to the Karen Olson article. I'm still working on it but I'm hoping you can review it and remove the box at the top from Wikipedia citing issues with the article. Thanks.Cakaul (talk) 20:57, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

I would like to make available two items on Karen Olson's Wiki page: a link to a speech she gave at the Clinton School in 2011 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL8ZNSRPmLU) and a profile that Marlo Thomas did on Olson as part of her "Hero Next Door" series on her website on AOL.com (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8-claJSS4c). I think these are both appropriate material for a biography of a living person. Can you advise me if they are and, if so, how I should make them available on the page? Thanks much.75.147.121.77 (talk) 18:33, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Family Promise needs an article[edit]

Hi, Cakaul. Welcome to the world of Wikipedia. I saw that you received the help you requested but perhaps not with the amount of detail that you desired. I'll stick around for a bit and see if I can help.

One of the first things you see in the Karen Olson article is a red-link, Family Promise. As I read her article, much of it is about Family Promise and its history. The same sources talk about both her and the organization (or its predecessors). Linking to a Family Promise article will keep the Karen Olson article from being an orphan. So....

I suggest that you start a draft of the article Family Promise in your sandbox. If you see Sandbox in the far upper-right corner of your screen, just right-click on it and open it in a new window or tab. If you don't see it, then open a new tab and type http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Cakaul/sandbox into the empty URL line in your browser. Just type in Family Promise in the empty text box that opens and save the page. Bingo, your draft is started.

Next, right-click both of these and open them in new tabs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_non-profit and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_organization. Look at both and the examples. Decide which is most appropriate for your new draft article. Don't delete the fields that don't apply or that you don't know. Others will fill them in as reliable sources are found. Put in what you know or can find, then write the text. Add references as you write... and if you haven't already watched the first short video in Referencing for beginners, do that (opened in a separate tab or window). Bingo! No more criticism about bad referencing.

I have several other Wikipedia activities taking most of my time right now but I'll drop in and lend a hand with the Karen Olson and Family Promise articles soon. For now, take care. DocTree (ʞlɐʇ·ʇuoɔ) Join WER 19:31, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Doctree. Could you please take a look at the Karen Olson article and either tell me what I need to do or just do it as the editor yourself? I have started a Family Promise article as you suggested in my sandbox--just typed in Family Promise and hit "Save." That's all i've done so far. But, before I get to that, i'd really like to get the Karen Olson article to the point where the 3 issue boxes at the top are eliminated. The first is inline sources--I've added more so there are now 7 total, plus references and external links. Isn't this enough documentation? The second is Categories--I am going to add a couple more but could you give me suggestions on this? Also, what about one of those boxes in the upper right across from the table of contents. Can that be added, with a recent photo, without a great deal of personal data? What is the minimum that can go in such a box. And third, general notability--seems to me Karen Olson easily meets notability standards as founder of a 25 year old nonprofit with 182 Affiliates nationwide engaging 160,000 volunteers, right?

I find the editing process and guidelines at Wikipedia fairly confusing. I don't want the Karen Olson article to be removed but I am having trouble making it conform to Wiki standards, evidently. I could really use your help!

Thanks so muchCakaul (talk) 21:45, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I cannot seem to figure out how to fix the Karen Olson wiki article so the notations at the top are removed. I have no experience as a Wiki editor and find it very confusing. Others have responded to my requests here, some saying they would be able to help fix it, but there has been no follow through. For instance, I have been told that Family Promise needs its own page--I don't have the skills to do that. If I don't, can someone else? You? How can this be accomplished? Is there anyone I can talk to by phone about it?

I posted a couple of photos that were deleted. One was taken by Karen Olson's son, the other for Family Promise by a supporter of the organization who passed away about 8 years ago. I will try and get permission emails from her son and the supporter's widow (is that necessary?).

Bottom line, Karen Olson has built a national organization over the past quarter century through personal persistence. I think there is no doubt she should meet Wiki's notability guidelines--I just don't have the experience to format the article to meet Wiki specifications. I have asked if any Wiki editors can fix this independently and not really received a response. Can you help me out with this? thanks. --~~==File permission problem with File:Karen Olson handing out sandwiches in New York City.jpg==
