Grateful for all the help I receive here at Wikipedia, I am happy to offer my assistance and will do what I can. Just click on:


Please bear with me at times. I've got a couple of disabilities and because of the symptoms I can operate at a low caliber some mornings or even several days. It may take a few times until I get something worded correctly, particularly in informal discussions... but I nearly always get there in the end. Thanks!

I'd like to be adopted by you[edit]

Hi, I'm writing my first article about a website that I use a lot. I've already inserted all the references, but I have a problem with the 'infobox website'. I'd like to add the logo and a screenshot but I don't understand how to do it. I've searched on different help pages, but I still have problems.

Do I need to upload the logo and the screenshot on the common area? But I think it's not correct, because I have to say that they are free to use. A logo as got copyright on it, not everybody can use it, I suppose.

If you can help me with this issue I will thank you forever!

Sorry for my english, I'm italian :-)

Hi, Sure. I'll answer on your talk page.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:13, 4 December 2014 (UTC)



I, along with a couple other editors, am currently working to build the Co-op. It is a new mentorship space we're working on and would be piloting in January and February. Our plan is to have experienced editors guide newcomers one-on-one based on how they wants to contribute to Wikipedia. We expect mentors to take no more than one or two editors each under them, so it wouldn't become a huge commitment at all. Your experience helping newcomers in general and at the Teahouse would be really helpful, especially because we plan to build the space as newcomer-friendly. If you're interesting in helping out, please sign up here. If you have any questions about the space, I'll be happy to answer them so please feel free to let me know.

NAN Ranch[edit]

Hello, Carol -- I hope this is the right way to answer your message(s).

As to the user name change, and the name of the page: Here's my situation: my family are owners since the 1940s of the NAN Ranch (including the NAN Ranch ruin) and we intend to establish a wikipedia page on the ranch itself. The existing page that is called NAN Ranch is really about the ruin, not the ranch. Certainly we can do a disambiguation re-direct on this article about the ruin, but our preference would be to change its name to NAN Ranch Ruin and be able to use the name NAN Ranch for an article about the ranch, its history, and more. I used the username NANRanch1 because that is a gmail address we use at the ranch.

NANRanch1 I've moved the article for you. You're right that it should have been named NAN Ranch Ruin.--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:02, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

I did not look up the references to Harry Shafer's book on the C.B. Cosgrove information, and I do not dispute that the information might be there, but it is not correct that the Cosgroves were owners of the NAN. The NAN brand was associated with an early owner of the ranch, but that is not relevant as it was not Cosgrove or anyone associated with him. The Cosgroves whetted their appetite digging on a property they owned, but their big project was the Swarts Ruin, now on the NAN as well. I don't know if it was already part of the NAN Ranch when they excavated it; a family named Swarts had a store and home by the road at that location, and the ruin was in their field, now ours.

Ok, I'll find some sources to correct this information and add a note about this discrepancy.

Harriet Cosgrove was very likely to driver of the Cosgroves' scientific endeavors. She is listed as first author on the Peabody Museum book, and that would be unusual for the day unless it was acknowledged that she acted more or less as principal investigator. Her methods are not today's methods, but her (and her husband's) work remains important. Anecdotally, I always heard growing up about "Mrs. Cosgrove's digging;" I'd never known the Cosgroves' work to be considered "his" work.

Yep, it makes sense to mention her work, just not the way it was handled. I can work on that.--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:02, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

I mean no disrespect for your work setting up a page to put the NAN Ranch Ruin on the map; I'm glad to see it.

Please let me know what your view is of changing the page's name to NAN Ranch Ruin, and allowing us the use of the name of our family ranch. I don't believe this would in any way diminish your page.

No, of course not. As I mentioned, I highly recommend that you change the user name - and since there is a conflict of interest in creating the NAN Ranch article, I am happy to work with you on it. See Wikipedia:Conflict of interest.--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:02, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Hey! I saw that you were willing to adopt newbies. I'm a new editor and still trying to get my footing here. I could really use some help navigating the editing community and figuring out the best way to contribute to wikipedia. Twistthespine (talk) 18:37, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
