On color classification[edit]


After linking from linguistic relativity to color perception to color theory to tints and shades, I'm feeling that it may be appropriate to connect Robert Ridgway to color theory somehow. (This might involve discussing Ridgway's work, as well, perhaps, as Wilhelm Hauchecorne's, in conjunction with the history of mapping out different colors. I would add that the color perception makes for quite an interesting read. groupuscule (talk) 20:34, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Munsell (purveyors of a soil color matching kit) has a blog about color. An early treatise on colors, with swatches, is Werner's Nomenclature of Colours (1821). Dgorsline (talk) 15:33, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Robert Ridgway[edit]

I've reviewed it for WP:BIO per your old request. It is B-class. Good job, may I suggest WP:GAN next? (One quick comment: merge short paras together). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:26, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation of Audubon Society of the District of Columbia[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, place a new {{help me}} request on this page followed by your questions, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I have two articles in draft: Audubon Naturalist Society and a stub, Audubon Society of the District of Columbia. Audubon Naturalist Society (of the Central Atlantic States) was known as Audubon Society of the District of Columbia from 1897 until 1959; it is the more established and notable organization; and almost all references within Wikipedia to "Audubon Society of the District of Columbia" (here, for instance: Florence Augusta Merriam Bailey) apply to this organization. The present Audubon Society of the District of Columbia, established 1999, is a relatively small organization.

As I have drafted the pages, I have written a hatnote for the Audubon Society of the District of Columbia article referring readers to the other article, and I have wikilinked from Audubon Naturalist Society back to Audubon Society of the District of Columbia as a "similar organization." Is this the best way to handle the disambiguation? Or should we make a dab page titled "Audubon Society of the District of Columbia" and title the stub page something like "Audubon Society of the District of Columbia (chapter)"? Dgorsline (talk) 02:12, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Since there are just two pages that might be confused, a hatnote pointing from one to the other seems sufficient. We will have to check all incoming links, though, to make sure they point to the right article. Furthermore, if "Audubon Society of the District of Columbia" more commonly refers to the pre-1959 organization than the post-1999 one, we should probably turn "Audubon Society of the District of Columbia" into a redirect towards Audubon Naturalist Society and choose a different title for the post-1999 organization, say Audubon Society of the District of Columbia (founded 1999) or something like that, with a hatnote for the redirect target pointing towards the other article.

Your GA nomination of Robert Ridgway[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Robert Ridgway you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Sasata -- Sasata (talk) 05:20, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Dgorsline, do you have time to work on this? Sasata (talk) 19:24, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for prompting me! This is the first GA article that I have nominated, so I'm learning the protocol. (I didn't notice your review comments for a few days.) I made one pass through the comments for things I can deal with quickly, and I will come back and deal with the remainder very shortly, likely tomorrow. I have two questions: (1) "there’s a "chapter ignored" parameter error in ref #43" -- I don't see the error message, and I don't see any cite that uses a chapter= parameter, so I'm not sure what needs to be fixed. I think we are talking about this cite, which I admit is a little odd: \{\{cite conference|booktitle=Proceedings of the High School Conference of November 23, 24 and 25, 1922|date=March 1923|publisher=University of Illinois|location=Urbana, Illinois|pages=112–117|url= R.|last=Dean|title=Robert Ridgway at Home|editor=High School Visitor's Office, ed|accessdate=4 March 2013\}\} (2) "accessdates are not required for links to printed publications" -- are we saying that accessdate= parameters should be removed for such cites, or that they're optional, i.e., not strictly necessary?
