Editing with a conflict of interest[edit]

On the off-chance that your user name "Gmcbjames" indicates a relationship with the Gorham Manufacturing Company, let me direct you to our policies about editing with a coflict of interest. Best, Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:23, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

I never thought of that before - gmcb could be interpreted as Gorham Manufacturing Company. No problem at all with WP:COI, as I have no connection to any companies including Gorham. Thank you for your concern. Gmcbjames (talk) 00:21, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks, sorry to have bothered you. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:29, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Assessments[edit]

Hi, thanks for helping out with assessing requests! When you assess an article on Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment, could you please post your comment to the article talk page? No one will find the comment in the edit summary removed from the article talk page and your comment which could help improve the article would be lost. Regards Hekerui (talk) 19:19, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

My comments on the Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment history page are for other reviewers & for the history of the page, and comments, usually the same, for the article are on the article's talk page for the history of that page and for possible improvement of the page.Gmcbjames (talk) 19:51, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
I noticed in your edit summaries you write "leave note." We can all use help for edit summaries...especially me. May I suggest using "left note" or maybe "see talk page" for clarity as "leave note" implies a reminder to oneself to leave a note or a request for someone else to leave a note. Gmcbjames (talk) 22:59, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
It's an abbreviation for "I leave a note" - I won't write "left a note" when it refers to an action happening in the present time. As for the assessment, I just wanted to make sure your comments won't go unnoticed by editors so I suggested you write them down on a talkpage because people really don't check article histories for improvement suggestions.

Thank You[edit]

Thank you for your recent assistance in fulfilling the backlog of article assessment requests for WikiProject Biography. Within the past few months, I have become one of the few Wikipedians to actively continue using the WikiProject's Article Assessment Requests page, and have thus far only recieved substantial assistance from one other user in fullfilling asessment requests. --TommyBoy (talk) 05:16, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Roca (company)[edit]

Hello, sorry for the late answer. When I created the Roca (company) page it was simply a company stub. Nothing written like an advertisement. Not sure how it looked before deletion, but the solution was to revert to a previous valid version, not to delete the page. That's what I think. —  Ark25  (talk) 20:56, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Mark Satin[edit]

I'm always interested in learning about other wikiprojects' assessment criteria, and this article is about to go to peer review. Do you have any opinion on which of the B-class criteria this article fails? You just assessed it as C-class. - Dank (push to talk) 16:50, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Dank, just a few MOS tweeks - captions should be concise, and clean up a few redundancies - terms of size often are unnecessary and redundant - “some”, “a variety/number/majority of”, “several”, “a few”, “many”, “any”, and “all”. I find captions problematic myself as I tend to be wordy. Also, and very minor - the first instance of "wasn't" should be "was not" to avoid contractions per MOS, the second "wasn't" is ok as it is in a quote - contractions are fine if in quotes per MOS.
If it is a MOS issue easily corrected by me, I will do it. However, I don't correct captions or text. If you feel the captions cannot be more concise, please let me know.
Thank you for asking about my subjective opinion on how I assess - I may be a little too picky about style for a B class assessment, however I feel a B class assessment is ready for a peer review and all MOS fixes should have been addressed. Do let me know if you wish me to reassess the article, I will be glad to or else you can post it again for assessment on biography. Gmcbjames (talk) 00:22, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks much; I hadn't looked at the captions myself. I'll check for contractions. - Dank (push to talk) 02:46, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
