Parrish Art Museum[edit]

Hello Dragon Lord,

I have reviewed your comments and those of Americasroof. I would prefer to correspond directly via e-mail (mine is segalm@parrishart.org) but if you prefer this means, that's fine. Would it be acceptable for me to take "baby steps," such as replacing the exhibitions currently listed in the "upcoming exhibitions include" statement with actual upcoming exhibitions, rather than past ones. I'm only interested in accuracy, and I don't see how that represents a conflict of interest. If somebody were to write that the new Parrish is 1,000 in length and I corrected that to 615 feet, how is my correction indicative of a conflict of interest?

That said, while I don't think the opening paragraph I submitted is puffery, I can see that it does not satisfy Wikipedia's standards. I was paraphrasing our mission statement. Would it be acceptable to include the mission statement by prefacing it with: "The Museum's mission statement is as follows..." or something to that effect. Most organizations have mission statements. I can see that if presented without a preface, as I did, it runs the risk of seeming like opinion, not fact. But if identified as a mission statement, I think it helps clarify what the museum is about, or at least what the museum is trying to be about, which seems a legitimate element of the entry.

I plan to make some updates in the Exhibitions section. Here's another issue: some of the previous exhibitions listed took place many years ago, and more recent exhibitions are omitted. Is there any reason I can't add exhibitions from the past two or three years, especially as they reflect our current orientation? Again, I'm not interested in stating opinions or "selling" the Parrish in any way. I'm just trying to increase the accuracy of the entry. I will be more mindful of existing links. Also, I was planning to add links to the material you deleted, but I hadn't gotten around to it yet.

I really would like to work cooperatively. I had not read the guidelines thoroughly enough before, and I do understand the need to scrupulously avoid unverifiable statements of fact or statements of opinion. I look forward to hearing form you.

I suggest you look at Wikipedia:Best practices for editors with close associations. Editors closely associated with the subjects of the articles they are editing are not barred from such editing per se, but you need to be careful not to violate Wikipedia policies. We appreciate your effort in making Wikipedia a more accurate source of information, but make sure you know the rules before you edit. —DragonLord(talk/contribs) 17:23, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
Small edits to the article are fine, but problems may arise if you link to the Parrish website, as we try not to rely too heavily on primary sources. If you want to make sure that each edit is okay, you can use the talk page of the article to suggest edits. You can also use the {{Help me}} template on your talk page to request assistance from more experienced editors. Once again, thanks for your efforts to improve Wikipedia. —DragonLord(talk/contribs) 17:36, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Dragon Lord,

For starters, I'm writing to propose a couple of factual changes to the Parrish Art Museum's page. Rather than enter them myself, I'm submitting them to you for vetting. In the Water Mill location section, the correct dimensions of the building are 615 feet long and 95 feet wide. The figures of 634 feet and 94 feet seem to come from the source noted in footnote # 16. I don't know who that is, but it's not correct. I can provide a very detailed Herzog & de Meuron construction document with these and other dimensions. Or, I (or you) can cite Herzog & de Meuron Construction Document No. 349, Parrish Art Museum Water Mill, New York, USA. Project 2009 - 2010, Realization 2010 - 2012. In the same paragraph, it says "It has 37,300 square feet of gallery space." This is contradicted by the penultimate paragraph of the text. I think whoever wrote that meant to say that the building is 34,400 square feet (not 37,300), a figure from the same Herzog & de Meuron document.

In the penultimate paragraph, the correct figures for gallery space are 4,600 square feet for temporary exhibitions, 7,600 for the permanent collection. These figures, too, may be found in the Herzog & de Meuron construction document. Also, past exhibitions have focused on Esteban Vicente, Juliao Sarmento, and Dorothea Rockburne. Upcoming exhibitions will feature Alice Aycock, Josephine Meckseper, Michelle Stuart, and Jennifer Bartlett.

I hope you will agree that these are statements of fact. I agree citations are important, but a citation itself is not a guarantee of accuracy, as can be seen with citation # 16. Even the New York Times can make mistakes, which is why they sometimes issue corrections. Msegal3054 (talk) 18:23, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Good, but make sure that we can verify the sources. Unfortunately, I don't always have the time to handle every suggested edit, so you might want to use {{Help me}} on your own talk page to ask for assistance from other editors. Thanks for your effort to improve Wikipedia. —DragonLord(talk/contribs) 18:29, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Just wanted to let you know I made a couple of minor changes, with sources where necessary. Thanks for your guidance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Msegal3054 (talkcontribs) 18:20, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

User SimoIla[edit]

Hi DragonLord,

I see that you have some history with Simolla and wanted to let you know that the user created Simona di Michele. I was going to nominate it for deletion but seeing your history I thought I refer this case to you.

Seitz Brewing[edit]

I own the trademark names Seitz brewing and Seitz beer. There is no conflict of interest. It is a hobby of mine. I sell nothing. Seitz Brewing — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seitz Brewing (talkcontribs) 18:30, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

JDR Guitars[edit]

I listed a manufacturer of guitars (JDR Guitars) and you dismissed it? What is the credentials for your decision? They are a manufacturer of guitars and I would like to know what the issue is would be? They have a reputable website certified by Norton and you decided with no explanation to why it was removed?

Please let me know the reason?

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sharvey120 (talkcontribs) 05:38, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

The link was inserted in a place where external links were not expected. Check for a section called "External links" and insert it there. Otherwise, use the talk page of the article to discuss the change you want to make. Thank you. —DragonLord(talk/contribs) 14:52, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thanks for the cookies and the helpful links. sincerely Panpog1 (talk) 00:01, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

You're very welcome. From the edits I'm seeing in your sandboxes, it seems you're trying out some of the features of Wikipedia, especially syntax highlighting. For guidance on how this works, see MOS:CODE and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi. Once again, welcome to Wikipedia. DragonLord(talk/contribs) 00:14, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Pilipinas Kong Mahal[edit]

I just did what Wikipedia required - I posted material with supporting evidence. You may look for the book I mentioned at the Library of the Mariano Marcos State University - College of Teacher Education in Laoag City if you think I only made up the lyrics.

I also have a screenshot of the book where I derived the material. You may see it at: http://sphotos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/284795_4036481689410_1797852481_n.jpg

And besides, what I posted was the OFFICIAL English version - the ORIGINAL lyrics of the song before a Filipino version was made. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.1.38.228 (talk) 14:50, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

To clarify, I reverted the edit because you had removed categories and a template from the page. I probably made a mistake on this one. My apologies. DragonLordtalk/contribs 14:55, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Personal Sandbox[edit]

Thank you for the welcome. I do have a question. I created a personal sandbox, but I am not sure how to add that link to my user page, so I can access it easily. When I try, it tells me that page has not been created, but it has. Please advise. Thanks. --Faerygirl81 (talk) 20:08, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Your personal sandbox is located at User:Faerygirl81/sandbox. Remember that page names are case sensitive, so User:Faerygirl81/sandbox is not the same as User:Faerygirl81/Sandbox (with capital S). DragonLordtalk/contribs 20:52, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. That must have been the problem. I will be more aware in the future. Faerygirl81 (talk) 17:50, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, DragonLord, I did not add the image to "amuse" the readers, I merely did it to inform them how serious the Share-Alike CC are. Lotje (talk) 05:18, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I still don't think that edit was appropriate. An argument regarding CC BY-SA licensing is not relevant to code monkeys and is not a factual statement that belongs in mainspace. If licensing is an issue, or if you believe that users are not fully aware of the consequences of the CC BY-SA license, you should discuss it at the village pump instead.

You placed a POV tag on the article, but failed to explain your concern on the talk page. I am removing the tag. If you re-insert the tag with an explanation, I will leave it on, and we can discuss. Leaving a tag without an explanation is known as drive-by tagging and is discouraged. Robert McClenon (talk) 19:11, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
