NGO's[edit]

Hi there.

I've dealt with several other people working on charity/NGO articles in the past few months, so I thought I'd share some of my advice/tips.

  • Following the principles of 'bestcoi', work on the article in your own user space - e.g. user:Dbiel/mypage. Add references for everything - make sure they are reliable and verifiable sources. The webpage of the charity is a primary source, so may be challenged. For example, if you say "The organisation has 3000 employees" with a reference to their own website, that information may later be removed. If you can source a national newspaper article that mentions the fact, it should be OK. For help with how to make good refs, see my own tips in User:Chzz/help/refs.
  • It's also worthwhile you reading through their talk pages, to see the issues they faced with their articles.
  • When you've got the article into shape, ask someone to look at it. You could ask a helper in IRC, or put a request on WP:FEED.

Sorry if this seems like a lot of info to take in, but from experience I've found it to be the best approach. There are lots of people in the Wikipedia community who will help you in any ways we can.

Best of luck; please leave me a message some time, and let me know how you're getting along. --  Chzz  ►

Fair use issues with Kelly Monaco image[edit]

Hi. There is a fair use argument being brought to bear against an image of Kelly Monaco it looks like you were involved with back in 2008. The image has been in use on Sam_McCall since I believe 2005. The image was flagged when I attempted to link the same picture to the article Kelly_Monaco last night, which had no picture at that time, but has had a number of different pictures including the Sam McCall image since before 2005. See here for more info: Talk:Sam_McCall#Infobox_Image and Talk:Kelly_Monaco#Use_of_Kelly_Monaco_Image_from_Sam_McCall

I have had no involvement with the page or with the images since last night, so I would appreciate any input you might have on the issue. Thanks Jay Dubya (talk) 17:49, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
