Disambiguation link notification for December 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Dick Dodd, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Buena Park (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Christopher Jaroniec[edit]

According to the WP:Academic #3 the person is notable as long as he is a fellow of some notable society, in this case, he is a research fellow at the National Science Foundation a respected organization, and therefore makes him notable.--Mishae (talk) 03:40, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

The article (and its lone source) do not say that; what they do say is that as a graduate student, he was a graduate research fellow. That is not the same thing. Nevertheless, you are free to follow the procedures set forth in WP:PROD.  Frank  |  talk  03:50, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
I removed prod and added CV where it mentioned that he have even more awards and numerous peer-reviewed articles, which according to WP:Academic makes him notable. I am a bit surprised why I couldn't find CV earlier...--Mishae (talk) 04:40, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Sophie Masloff[edit]

Hi. Can you point to me where in the article it backs up the claim that "Masloff, who was 70 years old when she took office, was characterized by her short stature and raspy, nasal voice, along with her ability to speak Pittsburghese (the local dialect). These attributes were quickly caricatured by political cartoonists. Her image as a "little Jewish grandmother" made her a well liked figure, even by those who disagreed with her administration. Masloff is best remembered for pop-culture malaprops. She once referred to Bruce Springsteen as "Bruce Bedspring". When the Grateful Dead came to Pittsburgh, she called them the "Dreadful Dead" and their fans "Deadenders"."? I see the part where it mentions her referring to "The Who" as "The How" (which is why I left that in), but I don't see any of the rest of that paragraph. Thanks.

My mistake, and I've self-reverted. You are quite correct; the one thing you left is the only thing that actually is cited in that reference. I mis-read the edit. If I can find cites, I'll restore the info, but not before. My apologies.  Frank  |  talk  23:32, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
No worries, it happens (just usually to me, not other people, haha). Canadian Paul 23:53, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

No worries. It would be nice to find more independent sources; do you know of any?  Frank  |  talk  14:46, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
