Parenthetical disambiguation[edit]

Hello CorporateM. I noticed one of your recent edits and wanted to mention an aspect of the title which I believe is incorrect. Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is Not (Organizations) capitalizes "organizations", which should only happen when the parenthetical is a proper noun. I was going to move the page, but thought I would mention it to you, and ensure there was no disagreement. Do you agree? I will leave the move to your discretion. Cheers.—John Cline (talk) 09:16, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

I didn't actually realize that you had retired for the night. I am going to move the page. I am pretty sure you will agree. Best regards.—John Cline (talk) 12:48, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
@John Cline Good catch. There was no need to seek my approval. On the contrary, I was very cautious about seeking community input before moving that page into essay space, seeing as I could conceivably have a COI. I cite this essay constantly though; it's extremely useful. Someday I hope it morphs into a guideline that will better empower neutral editors to delete poorly sourced promotion/criticism, like BLP does for those pages.

I understand your apprehension, though I am certain, having seen demonstrations of your intent, that you are entitled to a full collaborative share for the work you have done. I will never presume an edit from you is anything less than a reflection of your best, absolutely good faith, effort. If I see where I can improve anything further from there, I certainly will have a try. And if I learn a new thing, observing your manner, I won't be surprised in the least. I would be surprised however, rather derelict I suspect, if I observed your editing manner, and did not learn some new things on the way.

I remember looking at this essay when it was in your user space; thinking that I wanted to help copyedit it. I am going to be bold in that regard and actually get some of it done; hoping to help you realize your stated goals. I need to look in on the noticeboard you were trying to implement as well, to help ensure it also sees fruition. I saw the initial "naysayerisims", but it looked to me that a groundswell of support was emerging, and that you were advocating its purpose well. That is another positive thing you are moving forward, such that I say bravo to you!—John Cline (talk) 15:22, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

The various initiatives all work together as part of a dubious plot to create a competent system. COI editnotice can send PR editors to Submissions. However, right now many COI edits are accepted by proxy, while good edits are declined, and most submissions are garbage. Very few PR folks know our standards and many volunteers use their edits as an expression of their views on COI or their edit may depend on the level of sympathy they have for the PR's position. Though it's not the essay's primary purpose, it can act as a reasonable guide for when to accept/reject edits, while the Submissions process can put requests into a more structured process that attempts to strip away the social psychology and focus on the edits, RE whether they are compliant with our standards. Then the board can be reserved for escalation and/or attracting broader input on an issue (COI or not) that may benefit from editors with specific experience in org pages.

What exactly is File:Act-on screenshot.png showing?

Lol, good question. It's the main menu of the user interface. However, I'm not sure it's actually a very useful image. Showing the entire UI would be more useful, but not legible when shrunk to a thumbnail size. CorporateM (Talk) 20:32, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
Actually it says in the caption "The "Quick Start" guide in Act-On's online user-interface" CorporateM (Talk) 20:33, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
User interface of what? A web site or an app? In case of the former, which web page (URL please) and in case of the latter, which app and on what platform? Actually, I even tried to read the article and still I don't get it.

It's SaaS. CorporateM (Talk) 04:57, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Proud to be associated with you and your efforts[edit]

For your daily improvement of the pedia, and your business-like dedication to doing paid editing in the most transparent, by-the-book manner possible, I award you this business-like barnstar. As I read about PR firms pledging they will follow your example (and their own ethics rules), I can't help but be proud of our association, and especially be thankful that you are the stand-up guy I believe I recognized through your early contributions.
