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, 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.

Requesting for an adopter[edit]

Hi Carole,

I'd like to get some assistance on how to get a Wikipedia page up and running for the company I work for. However, as I understand, I'll be requiring the services of an independent editor. Can you help me walk through the whole process and adopt me as a mentee?

Thanks, and do let me know.

Hi Shakirahdj, Sure I would be happy to help! The first step is to determine notability (also see general notability guidelines) and find reliable, secondary sources like newspapers, journals, and books. Google news and google books searches are good starting points. --CaroleHenson (talk) 19:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Help please...[edit]

Hi Carole, do you know how to make an article split? The Breastfeeding article needs the HIV section split off since the article is so long. Let me know and I will fill you in on the details. Best, Gandy Gandydancer (talk) 01:56, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Gandydancer, yep, I went ahead and split that portion out of the article. The "too long" tag still applies, but it's less cumbersome and doesn't include info that would apply to most mothers. If you have any questions about what I did... or if I missed something, please let me know.--CaroleHenson (talk) 03:48, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
So grateful for your quick action. Thank you so much. Gandydancer (talk) 23:15, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
My pleasure, Gandydancer.--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:42, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Looking for Assistance to Add a Wikipedia Page for a Prolific Pro Photographer, 80+ y/o[edit]

Hello Carole,

As the subject says, I am looking to get my friend Bettina Cirone, a prolific photographer in the 70's to just recently in NYC and elsewhere onto Wikipedia. She was published many times fro her writing, and MANY MANY times for her images in countless newspapers.

Yesterday for instance we were going through some of her work shooting famous photographers in their homes, including Andre Kertesz, Gordon Parks, Ron Gallela and etc. Please at your convenience Google her name and go to images for a fraction of her work!

Long story short, she was a prolific female pro, in a very tough male dominated business

Thank you so much for the possibility of giving me a hand in including her to the Wikipedia world

Hi Tmcourtney, Yes, she definitely seems to be a notable woman. How would you like me to help?--CaroleHenson (talk) 21:13, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Carole, thanks for your prompt response!

I would be thrilled if you could guide me through creating the first line to get her presence on Wikipedia. Bettina has some 

archived cutouts of her published pics and some articles she did on FLICKR here:

Best TC

--Tmcourtney (talk) 22:45, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi, yes I can get it started. We can only use images if they are released into the public domain. If you or she could post images on after you look at the public domain link, that would be great.
I can get the article started. I find a lot of sources for her, but it would be great to find a nice biography of her. Do you know of a good article or book for biographical info?--CaroleHenson (talk) 23:37, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
