Re: on Wallington Grammar page[edit]

Hello DMacks,

I am a representative of OxNotes (a student run website and soon to be textbook) , I apologise for method in which it was recently added to the Wikipedia page, I have ensured all 'marketing speak' has been removed and what is left is only factual information. Please feel free to contact me via LinkedIn, Twitter or email if you require any further information. Thank you.

Kind Regards

My latest notification says that you reverted my last edit to this file. I requested a rename and you renamed it. I also made a slight adjustment to the description which is still as I left it, so can you please tell me exactly what it is that you have reverted. Jodosma (talk) 12:37, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

I removed the tag requesting the rename, prefacing that edit-summary with the statement "renamed". That is, I renamed it and removed the tag in a way that alerted you to the fact that something had happened in response to your edit. DMacks (talk) 13:30, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me know. I seem to learn something new every day at Wikipedia. ciao. Jodosma (talk) 08:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Come one and come all. To a presentation at the Laurel Historical Society about how you can help verify, validate, and edit the information that is on the front line of local history.

Picture your self leading the masses to improve Wikimedia one article at a time.
  • Show the Internet who is the better editor.
  • Be the creator of culture that you know you are.
  • Spread the knowledge of noteworthy people who no one but you cares about.
  • Lead the charge to a better Wikipedia --- eventually.

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC

Piano Media[edit]

I'm trying to update the facts that were announced yesterday, that RR Donnelley sold Press+ to Piano Media. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:41, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Please write it strictly neutrally--facts can be stated and updated without making it sound like a promotional/marketing piece. For example, do not use buzzwords or PR terms. Be sure facts are cited. Do not remove negative content that is cited (again, we are not allowed to give a biased or solely positive spin on topics here). DMacks (talk) 08:45, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
