my favorite wikipedia quotes " Thanks for reviewing Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society Hi Alternativity, Thanks for reviewing Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society. I really just created the article because I saw the Society red linked in the article you created about Leonard Co. The article about him was quite interesting and well done. I hope I did not step on your toes by starting to create the article about the Society. Please feel free to expand the society article if you are so inclined. I have done a bit of research on the society and will be adding a few more references in the coming days. I do enjoy working in collaboration with others! ciao!!! Carriearchdale (talk) 08:46, 16 June 2014" "(UTC)

Hi Carriearchdale! :D Thanks. :D I have to disagree about the Leonard Co being "well done" at this point because it's only about a tenth of the quality it should be. Hehe. But thank you. :D Thanks for getting to work on the society article. I've got a huge "to create" list still to get to and I'm afraid the society page isn't very high on my priority list yet. So I'm WAY glad someone's working on it. Hm. One suggestion, btw: are you active on Tagalog Wikipedia? Because there's a lot of work that needs doing there, making articles for native Philippine species. Anyway. Thank you for your work. Knowledge is an important weapon in the movement to protect Philippine biodiversity. And every helping hand is a step forward. :D Happy editing! -- Alternativity (talk) 11:29, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Memorable quotes[edit]

one of my favorite well written wikipedia quotes

rebuttal I agree with your concern about the burn out on editing. I do not agree that comments on ANI pages should exclude new editors. I also do not agree that that I have significant disregard for BLP. I have done exactly two edits in Ronan Farrow page (the biography is about Ronan, BTW, not Woody), the first edit was supported by an administrator on the BLP page as appropriate, and the second was to precisely respond to an experienced editors request. I have gotten ZERO feedback on any BLP violations except ad-hominem attacks. I am primarily a medical editor who is trying to learn the skills of controversial editing in an area with less importance (and zero importance to me, but I intend to see it through to its logical end, which could be as simple as an experienced editor with a calm voice saying: "bob, do X", which I will instantly). My position is well researched and your accusation is unfounded. As for my returning the favor to Carrie of reading the record and commenting, as we had previously tried to work together in another article. We have some established good faith, with exists broadly within Wikipedia editors, so can hardly be considered bad. I have read the transcript, and gave my opinion. You have chosen to attack the messenger with no assumption of good faith. I assume your good faith in wanting a good encyclopedia, but perhaps you might want to listen and see if there is a good argument being made by Carrie or I, and dispute the content on the basis of balance rather than assumptions. I doubt that you will find two more earnest editors than Carrie or I on Wikipedia, and if you want to attract more earnest editors Wikipedia should find ways to engage each of us on content rather than false accusation, misrepresentation, POV, or what you think our intent is. Wikipedia will die if it cannot find new voices and chooses to descend into a vacuous testosterone pit.Bob the goodwin (talk) 20:57, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks and accolades![edit]


Lyme Wars Thanks for coming in and helping. I am not very good at Wikipedia (yet?) editing. If you look at my sandbox, you can see where I was trying to head. I have 40-50 sections in the sandbox, and expert help can make this an excellent article. User:Bob the goodwin/sandbox The Sceptical Chymist actually put the page up, but was working from my research. I appreciate any help to get that article complete. Bob the goodwin (talk) 09:04, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Athiyur Hi there, just wanted to say thanks for all the work you've done cleaning up the Athiyur article. I have been trying to do this for months now, but the content seems to keep being re-added to article. I know you have asked questions about the article and the editor who keeps reverting and asking for edit protection. I have tried to explain to that editor in the edit summary and on his talk page why his edits were being removed or edited, but I don't think he fully understands how Wikipedia works. I get the impression he thinks that whatever he adds should stay, regardless of other editors or policy. The editor has even added welcome messages and holiday greetings to the reader, so I obviously haven't been able to get through to him. I'm thinking the difference in languages has something to do with this, as what makes no sense to me may make complete sense to him causing him to be annoyed when he gets reverted. Regardless of all this, I think it's obvious he is trying to contribute to the article in good faith, so it's not a bad idea to leave him a message if you happen to have to revert his edits. Anyways, like I said above, good work getting this cleaned up. Cmr08 (talk) 22:17, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note Cmr08. I had just left you a note on your talk page. I am nearing the completion of my copy-edit work on the article Athiyur, and I am hopeful that there will be no more problems with inappropriate material, text, or images being added to the article by any editor. Of course all editors are welcome to edit the article, but I really hope we all have the same goal of improving the article and Wikipedia. I hope everyone has a great day today! Carriearchdale (talk) 22:25, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

...and btw Cmr08, thank you for noticing my copy edit work, and you are quite welcome! Carriearchdale (talk) 22:27, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I seen the note. I think we were both messaging each other at the same time. Like I said above, I think this has more to do with not understanding how Wikipedia works, but considering he made no attempt to discuss and has been re-adding removed content without explaination, I don't really know what the story is. In situations like this, it's always best to assume good faith until we have a reason to assume otherwise. We will have to see how he reacts to the copy edits. Cmr08 (talk) 22:35, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Hi Carriearchdale. Thanks for reviewing Adam and Eve (public house). Yes, the article is short at the moment but I believe there are multiple secondary sources to improve the article (including finding a conclusive date of earliest record to a tavern on its site, either 1241 or 1249). May I ask your reason for tagging the article as an advertisement, and how I can solve that issue? Best, Duffit talk 14:40, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi Duffit, The one external link you have listed on the article is also used as an inline citation in the article. That site appears to be done in a promotional or advertisy writing style. Perhaps you could a different source to verify the saxon well. I think that having that link in the external links is probably okay, but if it were possible to have a source for the citation from a different secondary or tertiary source,that would be most ideal! Anyways I do very much like the way you have put the list together. If you have any more questions, or if I can help in any way with the article please do not hesitate to ask... I hope you a have a very great Saturday. Cheers!!! Carriearchdale (talk) 14:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the super quick response, Carriearchdale. :) I've completely excised the inline citations to the Good Pub Guide, but kept it as an external link as the GPG is a nationally known directory of pubs in the UK. I replaced the citation to the Saxon well to the Eastern Daily Press newspaper source. Does that solve the advertising issue? Hope you have a lovely Saturday too :). Best, Duffit talk 15:28, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I don't know what a citation barnstormer is, but it made me really happy. I am not sure I am doing a good job, but I want a good encyclopedia. I also want to learn to work within this environment. There is a lot of work that can be done if I figure it all out. I happen to think the Lyme wars stories is one of the all time great stories, I hope you are enjoying working with it. Let me know if I can do anything for you. I live in Seattle, and tend to stay up late, its nice to see someone awake at the same time! I will send you an email, if you want to discuss offline. Bob the goodwin (talk) 08:15, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Samsung Gear Fit Hi, Thanks for the talk message. I didn't actually create the article however; I had created it as a redirect to the Samsung Gear page, which was later turned into an article by another editor. I'm more than ready to help improve the content, regardless. --RaviC (talk) 14:22, 11 March 2014 (UTC) article Hey Carriearchdale, not sure if this is appropriate location for a response as I'm still getting used to the communications side of this, but thanks for the message re the entry! I intend to spend some more time improving the article tomorrow so will certainly take your suggestions on board and will probably be in touch for further assistance! Thanks, Will. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WillDalton (talk • contribs) 00:50, 12 March 2014 (UTC) Great, please let me know if you have any questions, or if I can help in any way on the article. ciao!

Thanks for the review of Groundnut pyramids. I know I see a lot of new articles during our Guild of Copy Editors' Drives, so it's nice to know my own articles pass scrutiny. Thanks again!

PaintedCarpet (talk) 15:08, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

  • thanks so much! how sweet of you. I really did like the article, it stood out among the rest of the new article crop!

Tag still there - possible edit conflict[edit]

Thanks for reviewing my latest contribution, Liane Davey. However, it seems the new article tag is still there... maybe there was an edit conflict that prevented the removal? Thanks again. Woz2 (talk) 23:35, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. I resaved it as reviewed, I think that got it. It was a really well done article. I enjoyed reading over the article.

Thanks for reviewing Llandissilio[edit]

Thanks for reviewing Llandissilio. It's only an infant, but hopes to grow over the next few days. All the best, Tony Holkham (talk) 11:39, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your review of Gustav Adolf Wohlgemuth[edit]

Thanks! Robert P. O'Shea (talk) 04:45, 31 May 2014 (UTC). Perhaps you would also like to review Instrument myopia, which I just created. It is a little more rough than Adolf Wohlgemuth's page; I will be seeking expert advice about the history of instrument myopia and will add it once I have it.Robert P.
