DYK nomination of Joan McCracken[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Joan McCracken at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. As I'm not sure if you're watching the nomination template, I'm just adding a note here as well.

Joan McCracken[edit]

Hey, thanks for your help with the DYK nom and especially for the cleanup in the article itself. I agree about deletion of the image for now, though I do think the deletion nomination was mistaken and I've taken up the issue on Commons. I enjoyed doing this, and in working on this article I found that this entire subject matter is really neglected by Wikipedia, so I hope to contribute in the area. Coretheapple (talk) 18:28, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Glad to be of help. I'm no expert on screenshots from film trailers, so I can't help there - would if I could. After the DYK is finished, if you still need an image for the article, it might be worth looking at posters instead? Due to the dates of Miss McCracken's films, my guess is that her film posters would count as non-free here, but possibly you could still get a fair use template for a poster file page for this subject. If you haven't already done so, look at Wikipedia:Non-free content. You would need to write a rationale, to give full copyright details and authorship of the poster, and use this template: {{Non-free poster|image has rationale=yes}}. But I repeat I'm not an expert, and it would be worth getting a second opinion as there have been recent changes. Of course you'll already know that fair-use images can't be used in DYK articles, so it would have to wait, anyway. I agree with you that it's a worthwhile article, with or without an image. We're all doing a public service here - something to be proud of. Good luck. --Storye book (talk) 20:33, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Very good idea. I've posted a query at the film project, and I notice that images of deceased persons is an acceptable category (or something), but posters is an area I hadn't thought of. Coretheapple (talk) 21:05, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
That DYK sure got posted on the Main Page fast! You folks sure know how to encourage a guy. Coretheapple (talk) 12:28, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Congratulations! And having a popular-culture subject it should get a good number of hits for the DYK. I'm guessing that one reason for your article getting to DYK so fast is that we don't have enough regular DYK reviewers, so anything with a green tick is going to be taken up by admin fairly quickly. Maybe we reviewers should make more effort when we don't have DYKs of our own in the queue. I'm ashamed to say I'm no more heroic than anyone else in that respect. Researching new articles is too interesting!--Storye book (talk) 13:09, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Feedback needed on using special characters[edit]

Hello. Thank you for using VisualEditor! Having editors use it is the best way for the Wikimedia Foundation to develop it into the best tool it can be.

While we always welcome general feedback (please report any issues in Bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product or drop your feedback on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org), the developers are especially interested right now in feedback on the special character inserter. This new tool is used for inserting special characters (including symbols like , IPA pronunciation symbols, mathematics symbols, and characters with diacritics). It is intended to help people whose computers do not have good character inserters. For example, many Mac users prefer to use the extensive "Special Characters..." tool present at the bottom of the Edit menu in all applications or to learn the keyboard shortcuts for characters like ñ and ü.

The current version of the special characters tool in VisualEditor is very simple and very basic. It will be getting a lot of work in the coming weeks and months. It does not contain very many character sets at this time. (The specific character sets can be customized at each Wikipedia, so that each project could have a local version with the characters it wants.) But the developers want your ideas at this early stage about ways that the overall concept could be improved. I would appreciate your input on this question, so please try out the character inserter and tell me what changes to the design would (or would not!) best work for you.

Screenshot of the Insert menu in VisualEditor
The "insert" pulldown on the task bar of VisualEditor will lead you to the 'Special character' tool.
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
This is the Special character inserter as it appears on many wikis. (Some may have customized it.) Your feedback on this tool is particularly important.

Issues you might consider:

  • How often do you normally use Wikipedia's character inserters?
  • Which character sets are useful to you? Should it include all 18 of the character sets provided in the wikitext editor's newer toolbar at the English Wikipedia, the 10 present in the older editor toolbar, or some other combination of character sets?
  • How many special characters would you like to see at one time?
    • Should there be a "priority" or "favorites" section for the 10 or 12 characters that most editors need most often? Is it okay if you need an extra click to go beyond the limited priority set?
    • How should the sections be split up? Should they be nested? Ordered?
    • How should the sections be navigated? Should there be a drop-down? A nested menu?
  • The wikitext editor has never included many symbols and characters, like and . Do you find that you need these missing characters? If the character inserter in VisualEditor includes hundreds or thousands of special characters, will it be overwhelming? How will you find the character you want? What should be done for users without enough space to display more than a few dozen characters?
  • Should the character inserter be statically available until dismissed? Should it hover near the mouse? Should it go away on every selection or 10 seconds after a selection with no subsequent ones?
  • Some people believe that the toolbar already has too many options—how would you simplify it?

The developers are open to any thoughts on how the special character inserter can best be developed, even if this requires significant changes. Please leave your views on the central feedback page, or, if you'd prefer, you can contact me directly on my talk page. It would be really helpful if you can tell me how frequently you need to use special characters in your typical editing and what languages or other special characters are important to you.

Thank you again for your work with VisualEditor and for any feedback you can provide. I really do appreciate it.

P.S. You might be interested in the current ideas about improving citations, too. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:20, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Smalltalk[edit]

Hi Core. I'm just making small-talk as it's not an issue of importance to anything really, but I wouldn't label Mr. Gregory Kohs as a "paid editor". He said himself he doesn't make any real money doing it. Rather I would say that he is a POV pusher, who accepts paid jobs (I would posture) mostly out of spite for Jimmy Wales, who embarrassed him in the media many years ago and created this vendetta-type relationship. My two-cents.

Anyways, I am working on a more comprehensive user profile now, which you are welcome to provide feedback on. It is a work in progress. My suggestion to you that I hope you will take to heart is that it is a common mistake for editors to respond to each editor that disagrees with them, such as user:Guy Macon, which leads to the kinds of combative bickering I noticed you find yourself in often. This has the effect of preventing thoughtful discussion, because editors are unwilling to read through the wall of text from only 2 editors.

If you want to influence the community to take a stronger stance on COI, which I think you do, I would take a look at user:Jeremy112233's comment as a model. A single, cogent, well-spoken and compelling argument/position that was powerful enough to make several other editors including myself accept his premise. Now if he started jumping on every comment thereafter, it would have actually had a negative impact on his influence in the discussion. It comes off as aggressive and puts other editors in the natural position of taking an opposing viewpoint in response. This is actually a big part of why advocacy is not even an effective strategy on behalf of PR reps, because it puts editors in the position of taking the opposing viewpoint. And the stronger the anti-COI clique and the pro-COI clique advocate against each other, the more entrenched the opposition becomes on both sides and the more any progress breaks down.

That's an over-the-top analysis of a single short discussion, but it's a small representative sample of the type of thing I'm talking about. I suspect it may be offensive to you for a sometimes "paid editor" to provide advice, but I think if nobody has brought this up yet, somebody has to. Of course you are free to ignore it as well ;-)

Best regards. CorporateM (Talk) 19:47, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Well I can't really talk about the Kohs situation as then I would have to refer to conversations I've had with IPs, and that brings us into the realm of "outing" that is frowned upon. I have a suspicion that he engages in paid editing through other editors and perhaps through socks. I am glad that you have added disclosure to your user page, as I think it will help a lot. By the way, when I referred to "advertising" I was really talking about another user, not you. But I am glad that you have taken a giant step toward disclosure, I think that it actually helps things from your perspective in every way. I know of no one in the paid editing business who does that so you really should be commended for doing that. Coretheapple (talk) 20:13, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
On your second points I welcome any advice you may have to give. After all, you are paid to be here, a pro, while I am not! So by definition you manage your presence with greater care than one without a financial stake in the outcome. Coretheapple (talk) 20:18, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
And I too should commend you for thoughtfully considering my input! CorporateM (Talk) 21:37, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Good, thanks. And as I said on the other page, if you get unfairly razzed or hassled by making this disclosure, you should let me and other editors know. So far as I know, you are the only paid editor, apart from those employed directly by companies, who have this kind of disclosure and I think it should be encouraged. Coretheapple (talk) 22:07, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
Nah, there are others. CorporateM (Talk) 04:27, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
His or her language is a bit ambiguous. "Potential conflict of interest"? Either he's paid or not to rep the company on Wikipedia. Coretheapple (talk) 21:57, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

To begin, thank you for responding to my question on the Administrator's Notice Board re: Islamophobia. I would very much appreciate your input regarding an edit I made on the Anjem Choudary bio in an effort to make it a more precise and accurate portrayal of the man, and what he represents. As expected, my edits were reverted overnight with comments from two different editors - one of whom responded to my question regarding the obvious bias in the very negative portrayal of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and Pam Geller noting she is Jewish VS the very positive portrayal of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, and Steven Emerson whose religious affiliation is not disclosed. That particular editor's response ended with the following comment:
"My impression is that both of those should be treated similarly to Pamela Geller and Stop Islamization of America such that all of these articles accurately describe the hate-filled vitriol directed at Islamic people."
I draw your attention to the words "...such that all of these articles accurately describe the hate-filled vitriol...". Wow - "ALL of these articles"?? I'd say that pretty well sums it up the bias, doesn't it? There is no distinction between extremist, or neutral in his response rather it appears to be a condemnation of anything considered to be anti-Islam. I won't deny there are instances when innocent people get lump-summed with the guilty, but that isn't always the case. There really are Islamic extremists who follow the Qu'ran and the Hadith literally. With regards to the other editor who reverted my edits on Choudary's bio, his only comment was that my edits did nothing to improve it. When you get a chance, will you please look at it? Also - is there a way to send you a private message, or is that feature disabled?

Before you respond to my questions, would you be so kind as to watch the following interview with Choudary? Thanks in advance….Ms Atsme (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 02:08, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

I shall certainly try to examine that but you know, it is not my area of expertise. Coretheapple (talk) 05:07, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
I've commented on the talk page, and as you can see I've commenced an RfC. It seems to me that you guys are involved in one of those heated battles involving a global issue that can only be resolved, at least here, by greater community input. Coretheapple (talk) 23:55, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Coretheapple. I have long since learned through personal experience, and by neutral observation that edit warring, vandalism, and personal attacks neither help the community, nor improve the readers' experience. I hope your call for input will help resolve the issue. Enjoy the weekend. Atsme (talk) 02:32, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

Hi Coretheapple[edit]

Hello. I just want to know if it is legal or not. I see a lot of info, controversy, news, letters, but the things are not clear.

  • Terms of Use ban paid edition?
    • If not,
    • then why WikiExperts and Wiki-PR outsource the edits?
    • Why the another companies not?
    • Why Wikimedia Foundation dont ban?
  • If in a future Terms of Use include ban paid edition explicitly, then its illegal, and WMF can sue the paid editors?
  • All paid edition are covert advertising, and therefore, is forbidden in Europe, among Directive 2005/29/EC?
  • Are a future COI policy, or the actual guideline irrelevant because paid editing editors can argue WP:IAR?

I am thinking of opening a RfC. Any advice is welcome. Thanks.--JackT7 (talk) 09:47, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Interesting. Is this new? First I'm hearing it. JackT7, if you're interesting in curbing paid editing I'd encourage you to continue making constructive contributions on the subject. I don't think that an RfC would be fruitful or helpful and I recommend against it. Coretheapple (talk) 16:29, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Auto revert[edit]

Core - Is it possible for someone to have an "auto revert" set up on page to prevent other editors from changing an article? Also, when you're in View History on a user page, and you just want to see what changes have been made, does clicking curr or diff actually revert the curr edit to the previous edit? There are some strange things going on at Choudary, and it could be I'm doing something that's triggering it, and don't know, but it looks like I'm edit warring cause I saw where someone put a red vandalism notice on it when in fact, a little while ago was the first time I went to the View History page. Would you take a look at it, and see if you can figure out what's going on? Choudary's View History Atsme (talk) 06:17, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Atsme, viewing an previous version of a page is not a revert. Hitting "Undo" serves to revert changes made in the previous edit(s) to a page. It looks like you have reverted several times including reverting your own edit! There is no "auto revert" feature but a page can be protected, usually for a limited period of time. It looks like this is what happened. Unless it is an article that is frequently vandalized, this protection is not indefinite. Liz Read! Talk! 14:53, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Liz - thank you for your response. I'm sorry to be a bother, but I felt it was important (even at my own expense) for others to know that it was never my intention to edit war with either of the editors who reverted my initial revisions - I promise. There were only two revisions I made intentionally. How the others happened are still a mystery to me. I find it rather odd that the reverts under my name occurred when I was simply viewing the article's View History, and comparing the curr | prev revisions by clicking on them for the sake of comparison. If that caused the reverts, I apologize, and ask the obvious - how does one compare revisions and reverts if not from the View History, or Read options? Like you, I thought an (undo) was required to make a revert, or a save page after editing, but that was not the case in this situation. I neither used the (undo) command, nor have I edited and saved more than twice on the page in question. Again, I never intended to edit war. I know better. There are a few other rather strange occurrences I've encountered, and would like to discuss, but cannot because it requires sending jpeg images from screen captures. Thanking you in advance….Ms. Atsme (talk) 18:32, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
I'm also a little puzzled by what's going on on that page. It seems really heated, but in a kind of odd way, with personal nastiness. Not really my area and I just can't get involved further. Sorry. Coretheapple (talk) 23:09, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Concerns about Parrot of Doom[edit]

Hi Coretheapple,

You recently started a RfC on the Anjem Choudary talk page and had a brief conversation with Parrot of Doom, in which you expressed concerns about his contributions to the page and the negative effect that they were having on the dispute in question. I appreciate that you withdrew from the discussion following his insulting comments to you and I hope that you do not mind me bothering you about this issue again.

I have only had limited contact with him but, on every occasion, he has been as equally insulting and rude to me as he was to you. This is matched by both the experience of other editors and by reviewing his edit history. There seems to be an ongoing pattern of behavior concerning a refusal to abide by WP:OWN or WP:CIVIL, not helped by his stated refusal to abide by these and a stated belief that they do not apply to him. I am attempting to address his concerns with him on his talk page, without response so far (though this is not surprising given the banner headline stating that anyone with concerns about his behavior "will be told in no uncertain terms where to shove it") and, if I am unable to do so, intend to take this to ANI (again, despite his stated intent to refuse to engage in any form of dispute resolution). I am concerned that he has driven off many editors with attitude, tone and choice of language and this is having a negative impact on the articles that he has adopted as his own. I see ANI as a good starting point to try to get some more community involvement to moderate his actions and hopefully get him to agree to stick to Wiki policies.

However, I am unable to take this forward unless at least one other editor raises this particular issue surrounding his conduct on the Anjem Choudary talk page and attempts to resolve it with him. I have no desire at all to whip up a posse but if you share these concerns and do not mind taking the time to do so, would you consider attempting to address them with him? At best, involvement from an experienced editor may carry more weight than one with my limited experience and may persuade him to reconsider his refusal to abide by WP:OWN and WP:CIVIL. At worst, this will then allow me to bring the issue before a wider audience so that more people can become involved in trying to put back on the right track an experienced editor who seems to have become very disruptive to the collaborative process.

If you do not share these concerns or do not wish to become involved, then please accept my apologies for having troubled you. Thanks Robinr22 (talk) 21:31, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure of the protocol but I think you can ask for intervention concerning a noncivil editor at any stage. I really am not involved in that article and don't want to be. Coretheapple (talk) 21:40, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for the tip, I'll see if I can take that forward. Completely understand you not wanting to be involved.Robinr22 (talk) 20:23, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
Sure. By the way, I stopped in on the page and noticed that somebody hatted the RfC. If you disagree, I suggest that you unhat. RfCs are supposed to run for 30 days. Coretheapple (talk) 23:47, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Ott's Title[edit]

What do you call a law school graduate that works in a library? A librarian. What do you call someone with marine toxicology Ph.D. that fishes for a living? A fisherman. A professional political activist? An activist. A degree is a necessary but not sufficient condition for claiming a professional title, and it's a stretch to say it's disparaging when that's what she seems to call herself. Geogene (talk) 00:23, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

She also calls herself a toxicologist, as do the reliable sources, and that is the relevant point here. You don't determine her qualifications for that position. Coretheapple (talk) 00:28, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos)[edit]

Coretheapple, I saw that you have interest in the 1963 Chualar bus crash, and I thought you might also be interested in the sad foreshadowing of January 28, 1948, immortalized as Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos), poem by Woody Guthrie with later tune by Martin Hoffman, most popularly performed by Pete Seeger. (The song's Wiki page covers the event fairly well; the event has no separate page, as far as I can tell.) JackGavin (talk) 20:56, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for catching that crazy edit of mine. Don't know what happened there. DonIago (talk) 18:59, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, it puzzled me. By the way, your latest edit removed the Cinemascope category. That's actually a very important and defining characteristic of the film, one that is always mentioned when the movie is discussed by film writers, as the director made full use of the screen in framing the shots. It needs to be discussed further within the article, and while the category's existence or not doesn't bother me too much, you might want to be aware of that. Coretheapple (talk) 19:04, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I'd encourage you to participate in the current discussion at WT:FILM. While the discussion is very new (I started it today), we're currently moving towards proposing the various "Films shot in..." categories for deletion, as in many cases they're being applied in situations where we don't belive they constitute defining attributes of the films in question. The best recourse would likely be to discuss the shooting methods in the articles with appropriate sourcing...but I have a feeling that's not likely to happen in many (most?) cases. Unfortunately in many cases we had IP editors mass-tagging articles as well, suggesting the cats weren't being well thought-out.
That said, I'm certainly open to reconsidering the categories if they'll be handled a bit more carefully (i.e. not mass-tagging), and my original "unsourced" edit was just completely bizarre...I wouldn't intentionally mark a removal of 4K characters as a minor edit. :p DonIago (talk) 19:10, 19 March 2014 (UTC)
I've commented. I think that as a general proposition it's helpful to have that particular kind of category. Coretheapple (talk) 19:21, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

You're unusually chatty today. I'm curious about what you're trying to accomplish over at the ANI thread. You're not being as aggressive as I'd expect. We've established that you don't agree with me. That's okay, but it's redundant. Maybe it's to try to prevent outsiders from getting involved in our dispute by boring them to death. Well, I'd actually rather have some outside participation, even if it boomerangs on me. That is why I went to the noticeboard in the first place. Geogene (talk) 22:17, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Please respond[edit]

Please provide your reasonable suggestions in response to the items below. I have demonstrated that I am flexible and open to different solutions. This continual effort to try and portray my intentions and my edits in an unflattering fashion needs to stop.

You have good insights. Just because I may disagree with you on something does not mean I am only trying to do it my way. I try to be guided by past Talk agreements or editing agreements, but even more importantly by current circumstances, reliable sources, and reasonable explanations. I continually look for and listen to alternative and compromise solutions. Maybe it takes somewhat longer than you would like, but ultimately we can find a solution.

Please stop[edit]

Instead of responding, as I requested, on the "Fort Lee lane closure scandal" article to the content issues that I raised in the three links in the "Please respond" Talk that I opened earlier today on your Talk page, you go on my Talk page and make more false and unwarranted allegations and implied threats about my personal behavior on Wikipedia.

I have also repeatedly indicated on my Talk page and in the article page to simply focus on content issues that I raise and not engage in personal attacks.

Please stop making false allegations and unwarranted threats about my personal behavior on Wikipedia and misrepresentation of how I have tried to repeatedly work with you to address content issues. You continually refuse to focus on content issues that I raise, and instead make false allegations and unwarranted threats on my Talk page about my personal behavior on Wikipedia. You also make further denigrating comments on the Fort Lee article Talk page about my edits. You repeatedly revert my edits without any substantiated reasons and which are in contradiction to article Talk discussions where you participated.

That is simply in violation of Wikipedia guidelines for Wikipedia:Assume good faith, Wikipedia:Civility, Wikipedia:Etiquette, Wikipedia:No personal attacks, Wikipedia:Consensus, and Wikipedia:Edit warring.

You are the one making ad hominum attacks, not me. I simply indicate exactly what you have done based on the incontrovertible facts of Talk discussions, your editing, your personal attacks on me & my editing, and your refusal to address content issues that I raise.

My recommended edits that I present in the article and its Talk pages are supported by reliable sources, past editing practices of responsible editors, including myself, that have made so many contributions to the Fort Lee article without any personal attacks or edit warring, and article Talk discussion and consensus. I have always been flexible in allowing other editors to make improvements to my edits without any contentious arguments.

You have taken your contentious and invalid arguments and personal attacks to a level that I have never seen before in any of my extensive editing on Wikipedia.

In the future, please direct all comments about my editing and content issues to the article Talk pages or in your History edit comments.

You are no longer welcome on my Talk page. If you post anything further on my Talk page, I will report you. Wondering55 (talk) 16:45, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I remember you said the same thing before you were blocked. Coretheapple (talk) 16:47, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Your statement about me making the "same statements" is inaccurate. They are new and updated statements based on new facts, your statements, and your actions. You are entitled to believe what you want to believe and even put it in writing. Others need to see if your beliefs are valid or contradictory to the documented facts. I am not here to argue with you about what you believe.
I have repeatedly asked you to address your comments about content based on reliable sources, facts, and past Talk agreements in the article talk pages. Instead, you continually came to my Talk page with false derogatory allegations that focused on personal issues.
I look forward to see if you can make your case for content updates on the article talk page and History edit comments. If your actual or proposed updates contradict reliable sources, facts, and past Talk agreements, I will simply point it out in the article simply based on content issues. I've learned a lesson from my interactions with you. I am now working within Wikipedia guidelines. Hopefully, you will too. You have added a lot of good content to the Fort Lee lane closure scandal article. Hopefully, we can work together in the future. Wondering55 (talk) 06:48, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh you provided new and updated "droning on and on about nothing" before you were blocked for edit warring? Excuse me.

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you. Wondering55 (talk) 16:44, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

I guess I was reading too much into your actions. Were I in your place, after enduring all of those responses I would have given up on that article! WP:COMPETENCE is definitely an issue here, sad to say. -- llywrch (talk) 15:27, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Well I have to say, it's tempting. However, the other editors on the article are good people and do their best under the circumstances. You are right about WP:COMPETENCE. I just don't know the answer here. Compulsory mentorship? Coretheapple (talk) 16:21, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Good fellow editors alwys help amke that occasional problem editor bearable. ;-) Anyway, let's see what WP:AN/I comes up with: I'm hoping there is an alternative to simply banning him indefinitely, which is all my unimaginative mind can come up with. :-( -- llywrch (talk) 17:53, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm staying out of that discussion! I'm almost glad I had to go away for a few days, as I might have been tempted to participate. The other editors indeed have been good, and frankly I don't like the idea of being driven out of an article by one rogue elephant. Coretheapple (talk) 18:26, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Coretheapple, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:37, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Just a quick drive-by....[edit]

...to say Hi from a newbie you helped back in March. I never did get to edit the Choudary article, but other editors did, and there was improvement. I consider it "indirect editing". I have since finished my first article that was nominated for DYK, and I'm trying to learn how that process works. --Atsme talk 02:35, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Great! Glad to hear it. Take care. Coretheapple (talk) 12:47, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Just want to say thanks for bringing the terrible article whose name I don't even want to type to Jimbo's attention and for your support in what I was starting to feel was a solitary and losing battle. I didn't care if they did kick me off WP if it was going to have such things on it anyway but I am glad I started that AN/I thread which brought the matter to your attention. The action that has been taken should alleviate the problem. All best Smeat75 (talk) 17:49, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

You're very welcome! I've gotten yelled at a lot over that article but I am glad that things seem to be moving ahead to address that article's problems. Coretheapple (talk) 17:55, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Your week seems to have been just lousy with acrimony and bad energy involving tendentious editors, seemingly as a consequence, at least in part, of dedicated efforts at WP:ANI.

How would you prefer I approach this?[edit]

Hey Core, as Bishonen has directed Wondering as to how to file more formally for a removal of his block, I was considering linking to our recent discussion on my talk page as to the issue, to note for the responding admin my mixed perspectives on the issue without bothering to replicate them at length on Wondering's congested talk page. However, as Wondering has a particular way of reacting to criticism, I can take another approach if you would rather not have your comments there highlighted in the general discussion. I figure as most everything you said on the talk page has already been amply reflected in discussion about wondering elsewhere, by both yourself and multiple other parties, you probably couldn't care less, but I thought I would accord you the consideration of asking anyway. Snow talk 22:44, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Just saw this, as I was away. I certainly have no problem with that. However, I think that events may have overtaken us. I see from the Wondering55 talk page that you've asked for no further posts on the Wondering55 page. I'm not going to participate there even though I've been invited, but I have to say that I am not happy with him being unblocked unless he switches entirely from Fort Lee lane closure scandal and any other article where he has been disruptive. If I have a voice in that I'd be happy to express it, but it seems a bit unseemly for me to do so. Coretheapple (talk) 16:51, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, as things have quieted down on his talk page and he seems to want it that way, I think it inadvisable to add those comments now. As to the Fort Lee article, I shouldn't be surprised if he walks softly there even if he does get unblocked; he's been blocked for a week and appreciates now how easily and swiftly it can happen if you prove unable to collaborate. I'd make use of the time you have to get to work on pruning it down to consistency with summary style though. Snow talk 10:39, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I couldn't disagree more about W55. He was blocked for 36 hours for edit warring, and after his return he stopped reverting and instead figured out new ways of being obnoxious. That's his objective- it's not going to stop. He's like granite; that's what makes him unique. By the way, I thought that your posting in the AfD on Jews and Communism was extremely perspective!

Cease and desist stalking and harassing me[edit]

Coretheapple-you have sent no less then 20 harassing and stalking messages to me in the last 12 months. This is a violation of Wikipedia and Wikimedia terms of services as well as a felony. Cease and desist all contact with me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:C07A:25C0:D438:96AE:828D:708A (talk) 11:19, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

  1. You only need to post it once.
  2. They're not harassing messages, they're templates that are standard.
  3. It's not stalking--you're making nonconstructive edits to pages he watches.
  4. Please read WP:NLT.
  5. They can't tell if it's you or not-these are the first edits on a new IP.

Note of appreciation[edit]

Core, I just wanted to let you know that I observed you, over the course of the whole divisive affair of the article-that-shall-henceforth-not-be-named, to have been one of the most tempered and even-keeled personalities involved. You kept to the substantive issues and avoided the more non-productive of the emotional pitfalls that frankly a considerable majority of the other involved editors all fell into at some point, for one reason or another. You managed to marry deep concern over the issue with a calm and level-headed and respectful approach to resolving matters. I hope you'll continue to contribute here for a long time as I think your priories are exactly the type which serve the community's needs best and that your contributions are just generally of great value to the project. Snow talk 06:12, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

RfC/U on User Director[edit]

I checked with an experience user. Request for comment on user's conduct shoulf follow the RfC/U. Now the RfC is pending for approval and this approval is under the condition that two users certify the issue is real and consistent to what I posted.

If you wish to certify that this issue is real, you just need to go to [[3]] and fill the section "Users certifying the basis for this dispute". Thank you in advance for your help (the deadline is the 4th June 8:30am). The certification must have place before the 4th of June 8:30am or the RfC/U will be archived. --Silvio1973 (talk)

I would find it hard to certify this particular RfC at this time because you haven't summarized what your cause of concern is. I suggest encapsulating what your problem is with Director, summing up your concerns, and then editors can look at it say "gee, I've had the same problem" or "no, I haven't had those kinds of problems with the chap." For example, not to prompt you, but I have found that he has exhibited WP:OWN and threatening behavior, saying he will "report" editors as an intimidation technique. That's my own problem with him and hopefully he's not doing that elsewhere. You may have other problems with him. But any problems you have need to be shown by diffs.

Whatever the problems are, you have to show that you've raised it with him and tried to solve them. However, I'm just not up on all the techniques and intricacies of this thing. Keep in mind that if you're not a saint, the guns of Wikipedia will be turned on you! So be ware of the ides of Wikipedia, as Shakespeare said. Coretheapple (talk) 20:08, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Blanc[edit]

I have doubts about the legitimacy of the five figure offer, however I think it is generally a bad idea to mention it, because it serves as free advertising for the offer and entices editors participating in the discussion to consider it. The craigslist link is an example of this. The IP that posted the Craigslist post was actually the author of it, and even while they were criticizing it, they were most likely actually advertising the bribe to their target audience of Wikipedians. CorporateM (Talk) 16:04, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Free advertising? I don't think so. I can't find it, and anyway, that is pretty much moot at this time. Coretheapple (talk) 16:34, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Editor of the Week[edit]

Editor of the week barnstar.svg Editor of the Week
Your ongoing efforts to improve the encyclopedia have not gone unnoticed: You have been selected as Editor of the Week, for "old school values and a common sense approach focused on what will help Wikipedia survive the long haul". Thank you for the great contributions! (courtesy of the Wikipedia Editor Retention Project)

User:Petrarchan47 submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate Coretheapple as Editor of the Week. Coretheapple comes equipped with old school values and a common sense approach focused on what will help Wikipedia survive the long haul. He has over 8200 edits (46 percent in article space), and has made 9 "Did You Know" nominations. His current interests range from the Fort Lee lane closure scandal to Joan McCracken, an article he created and nurtured to GA status. An active and involved participant at varied important articles and at Jimbo's talk page, he concerns himself with COI and paid and commercial editing. His ability to be flexible, keep calm, remain civil and stay on point should be an example to all. I am not alone in finding Core's comments at various WP talk pages to be "must-read" material. No one is better at encapsulating a problem and explaining it in clear terms. His intelligence is a rare gift to the pool of WP volunteers. I am honored and delighted to nominate Coretheapple for Editor of the Week.

SPA notifications on HistorianOfRecentTimes[edit]

Hi There,

I noticed that you are slashing the {{SPA}} notifications that I placed on Historian's comments on BDB. Those were in fact placed by me in [[4]]. I would appreciate the differentiation between my activities and those of other users. Thank You BDBJack (talk) 19:33, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

1. You, as a corporate employee, should not be placing SPA tags on anyone and certainly not critics of your company, per WP:BATTLEGROUND. 2. You, as much as anyone, deserve an SPA tag. Stop the nonsense. You should not even be editing the encyclopedia at all, and are lucky you are not banned. Stay off my talk page and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Inexplicable[edit]

You appear to be a normal user (not a part of the core group at Wikipedia) and removed legitimate work that I've done. I've hyperlinked text, included secondary and tertiary references and cleaned up the article only to see that you removed ALL of this work. I received no forewarning and no explanation. I would greatly appreciate it if you respected not only the editors but the audience who are pursing information through Wikipedia. It's how the site generates funding and continues learning and research -- through the creation of work, not the destruction. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Habitatsun (talkcontribs) 00:52, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

The problem is that you appear not to be a normal user, but rather seem to be functioning in a public relations capacity, and are adding promotional content. In so doing, you removed maintenance tags, and included unsourced material and puffery. You may feel that "Mr. Seitel is an active consultant for projects spanning the private sector, public sector and academia. He is considered as a subject matter expert by his peers within the Public Relations industry and often used as a third party authority," but we need reliable, secondary sourcing for that kind of statement. Also I see that you've been around Wikipedia for several years, long enough to know that we don't call people "Mr." Your reinstating that, after I removed it, indicates to me that you have some kind of relationship with the subject of the article, as does your statement "I received no forewarning." We do not gives subjects of article and their promoters "forewarning" before removing inappropriate material. I've removed the puffery and unsourced material again and please do not edit war to insert promotional material in articles. Coretheapple (talk) 12:37, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Habitatsun, I disagree. It is equally important that we maintain the site by removing content that is not compliant with Wikipedia's standards as it is that we add content that is. CorporateM (Talk) 14:47, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Coretheapple. This isn't as conspiratorial as you'd like this to be. The mere mention of this just makes me think that you have a personal vendetta. In the spirit of this, I appreciate the feedback re: Mr. CorporateM, thank you for the feedback. I understand this and will have a closer look at the standards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Habitatsun (talkcontribs) 23:00, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

I'd have a greater sense that you are here to improve the project, and not to push an agenda, if you abided by site policies and did the little things like sign your name. Coretheapple (talk) 23:04, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Signing your name is a minor technical item that most new editors don't know about (you sign your comments with four tildies like this: ~~~~). Most editors on Wikipedia have a certain degree of vendetta against the profession of PR, due to our generally negative experiences with the field's representatives on the site. However, in the overwhelming number of cases, PR professionals are the ones with an "agenda" and a "bias" who lodge these accusations against others who may appear as such from their perspective. If you are submitting an article on a person or company you are affiliated with WP:Articles for Creation is the appropriate place to submit those pages for consideration by an impartial editor. CorporateM (Talk) 00:17, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Actually this is not a new editor, but a three-year-old account. Older than mine. Coretheapple (talk) 01:36, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Yelp[edit]

What I will probably do is create a Notepad section on Talk and just start putting everything I find in reliable sources that is missing onto the Notepad. Editors can add or cross-out stuff in real-time, or they can wait for me to cull through it and come up with a more formalized Request Edit in smaller digestible chunks. Than I will cull through the article for unsourced/poorly sourced content etc.

However, I would like to wait at least a few days to a week. Basically I'm waiting to see if the infobox thing goes through the same endless debate as similar mundane or obvious things have done in the past. If it does, that is a good indication that my time will not be well-spent on that page. Such arguments between editors cannot be resolved without bold editing and sometimes even then. CorporateM (Talk) 14:39, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Well I just moved it. I don't see what possible objection there can be to that. It just looks weird to have two infoboxes piled on each other. I think that the article is somewhat lacking, though, in general. It seems to be written from a corporate-vs-critics perspective, and generally doesn't give a sense of the phenomenon that Yelp has been, how it polices reviews more than anyone else to prevent businesses from writing their own reviews. It's sort of dry, if you know what I mean. Coretheapple (talk) 14:42, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
I can tell you that Tripadvisor doesn't police its reviews. You believe a Tripadvisor rating at your own risk. I like your Notepad idea. Coretheapple (talk) 14:45, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I'll come back with more stuff later this week. Yah, they are very aggressive about protecting the integrity of their reviews from spammers, paid reviews, etc.. I love that when they catch a small business owner paying for reviews, they put a badge of shame on their review telling the site's readers that they were busted doing so. And they are aggressive about cooperating with law enforcement to shut-down paid review rings. On the flip side, my wife use to manage the Yelp profile for a small business she worked at and many legitimate reviews were being filtered out as spam because students were entering in coupon codes and they were constantly working with Yelp to get reviews posted by their competitors shut down. I think a neutral way of covering this issue would be similar to Reliability of Wikipedia and the problems are very comparable. Some small businesses genuinely have unfair reviews written by disgruntled former employees, while others are just unhappy with reviews that accurately describe their service as lackluster. And there is constantly drama, lawsuits, etc. in the media about disputes over individual reviews. CorporateM (Talk) 14:56, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Ok, ResearchGate is in "ok" shape now and the COIN/Talk post on Yelp didn't attract any drama, so I'm ready to work on that tomorrow or this weekend at the latest. I noticed it has almost 120 citations, whereas I've done articles on Fortune 500 companies with only 80. So my initial impression is that it doesn't need more research, but less (in a sense). What I will need to do is cull through all 120 cites one at-a-time, to find out which have content that should be added and which should be trimmed. This is very tedious/grueling work and I'm not sure how to practically present the items on the Talk page, but I will find a way to do what I can. CorporateM (Talk) 04:06, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
You must be following the discussion string on the Talk page of the COI guideline. There are no privacy concerns here and I am happy to provide a fuller disclosure, in case I have not elsewhere. I was hired by Yelp to improve their page following COI best practices. They were especially concerned because they experience a lot of deceptive practices on Yelp that are similar to what we often experience on Wikipedia and they wanted to make sure they were following the same types of best practices they would expect from businesses on Yelp (who can disclose and engage with reviewers ethically). After an RFC was closed in favor of a "Controversies" section, I felt that was a strong indicator that there was a bias against edits I proposed as a result of a COI disclosure. I say this having seen a good dozen identical RFCs that have always shown clear and unambiguous consensus against Controversies sections. I cancelled any billings and advised to Yelp that we just back off for a while.
While I do still have a financial connection (I hope to bill them again in the future at some point), it wouldn't be accurate to say "Yelp did this or that", because they have not seen the draft I prepared on my birthday, nor did they prompt it or have any meaningful input. I am not their "representative" and do not make contributions "on their behalf" which would be a group account. My edits are my own and whether I will get fired for them or make money from them is up to speculation - any COI editor that wants to do the right thing has to take the risk that they will get fired for making honest contributions that do a dis-service to their employer/client. Six months ago, I would have used words like "on behalf of" and had a different opinion on it.
It is a perfectly reasonable criticism that I am splitting hairs here, but I hope, if nothing else, that provides a sufficient disclosure for your needs. As you know, it's a complicated topic with no clear silver arrow solution, so I just do the best I can from my position. CorporateM (Talk) 17:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
You're right about controversies sections. They are not favored. Perhaps some alternate title can be found for that section, or it can be divided into others. Thanks for clarifying your COI status on the article. As you know, I have a COI because I'm a consumer of the Yelp brand and, OK, I confess, I occasionally contribute. But I've never received an remuneration as some Yelp contributors have (which reminds me - that should probably be in the article if there is an RS!). Coretheapple (talk) 18:03, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Well... everyone has used Yelp. If what you say is true, that you feel you have a COI, because you have used the service, than any editor likely to take an interest would have a COI and nobody would be able to improve articles. I am of the opinion that the "Everyone has a COI" argument is generally bogus. I have also had a lot of experiences with Yelp as a consumer, but I did not think such a disclosure was of any remote utility. I could disclose that as well if you like, though I would say that crosses over from "disclosure" to idle chatter. Anyways, RE the gifts, parties and perks for prolific reviewers, I do have some stuff about that at the bottom of the Community section. Don't you wish WMF did that too! Well, I guess they do do "sponsorships" for going to conferences, which is somewhat comparable to the free parties, but Yelp's version sounds more fun ;-) However, there's also this aspect "The system has led to criticisms that business owners can bribe reviewers with free food or discounts to increase their rating, though Yelp users say this rarely occurs.[58]" (quoted from the draft). CorporateM (Talk) 18:35, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
No, I was just being slightly facetious. No way just being a Yelper gives one a COI. If I were writing about a small message board that somehow became notable enough to be on Wikipedia, and I was one of the administrators, even if unpaid, that would be another matter. Coretheapple (talk) 18:40, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Aww, ok. Thanks for clarifying. CorporateM (Talk) 19:54, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Notice about WT:BLP discussion[edit]

I'm sure you will see one of my other comments about this anyway, but just as a courtesy I want to let you know I have started a discussion on WT:BLP about the Razzies.

Since I'm here, one other thought occurs to me to make. Some pages that are award lists are called "List of accolades received by..." rather than "List of awards and nominations received by...." These pages are more often for accolades received by films than for particular people, but there is List of accolades received by David Lynch, as one example of a personal list page. The word "accolade" has a meaning that is specifically a positive one, and so by changing the name of the Sandler list page to "List of accolades received by Adam Sandler" the Razzies could be excluded from that page on the grounds that they do not fit the page title description. That would not, of course, resolve the BLP question for any individual pages, but it would be solid non-BLP grounds for leaving them off the Sandler list and other similar pages. 99.192.79.171 (talk) 17:36, 26 June 2014 (UTC) (=99.192.93.187)

I don't think it makes any difference. "Award" is defined as "a prize or other mark of recognition given in honor of an achievement." Coretheapple (talk) 21:13, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
As a point about language, perhaps not, but the Razzies are officially called "awards" and described as such by everyone who talks about them. Even people discussing the Razzies on WT:BLP are talking about them as awards and even you were saying they could be included on an "awards" list if there were secondary sourcing. Changing the wording to an already commonly used term for page names like "accolades" would seem to more clearly resolve the issue of whether Razzies should be included. But it was just a suggestion. 99.192.93.29 (talk) 16:19, 27 June 2014 (UTC) (=99.192.93.187)

Infobox image for Michael Kidd[edit]

Hi, Coretheapple. I'm doing the WP:GA review for Michael Kidd, and I have a concern about the image used in the infobox. It's a complicated enough situation that I thought it better to reach out to you directly outside of the review. The image is a non-free photograph taken for Life magazine. The current fair-use rationale is very dodgy and needs to be updated, which I started to do myself. However, there is a complication because the photo not only includes Kidd, but also Fred Astaire. I think it will be difficult to come up with a plausible FUR for using a non-free image of Astaire on the article about Kidd. What I would like to do instead is crop the current image to remove Astaire. Then we can use a typical FUR for the image of just Kidd. However, that will mean updating the caption in the infobox as well. Alternatively, we could look for some other image to use for the infobox, such as this one. Let me know what you think. --RL0919 (talk) 19:12, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey thanks for reaching out to me on this and for the GA review. I see your point re the non-free image. I think that cropping it would probably be the best alternative, as it looks less stilted than the head shot. But the head shot is fine too. It seems to be from the "It's Always Fair Weather" era. Shall I crop and reupload? Frankly I don;t have too much experiences with images, so if you want to it may be faster. Coretheapple (talk) 19:16, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Cropped; uploaded; FUR and caption updated. --RL0919 (talk) 19:32, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks much! I do notice that what I'm seeing now is a distorted version of the old photo. Could it take a while to work its way through the system? Coretheapple (talk) 19:43, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Happened to me also. Your browser has cached the old image, but now presents it in the space for the new image (which is a different size because I cropped it). You have to reload the page so that the browser cache is updated. Ctrl-Shift-R, I think (although that may be browser specific). --RL0919 (talk) 19:52, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
