I forgot to mention[edit]

I forgot to mention that I found my lenscap. It fell into a side pocket somehow.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 03:20, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for contributing to the Learning Pattern library![edit]

Hi I JethroBT, I write to you to thank you for contributing a Learning Pattern during Wikimania London. You can now read it online by clicking here. Can you please review the pattern and add more information, if you see fit? For instance, can you share some of your experience at the Tea House? I think this could be related. Thanks again!

  • MCruz (WMF) Sure thing, it was kind of fun to be asked to do that on the spot while I was the WMF desk there. I'll see if I can fill it out a bit more this weekend. Thanks, I, JethroBT drop me a line 20:00, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Heroes in Hell[edit]

Hi. I've been trying to clean up the backlog of merger proposals and ran into Heroes in Hell (book). Upon reviewing the talk pages, I found that all the books in the Heroes in Hell series were tagged for merger, and according to one of your posts you merged all of them in that same month, backed by a consensus from an Articles For Deletion discussion. However, Heroes in Hell (book) is still a standalone article, still tagged as proposed for merger, and when someone tried turning the article into a redirect on July 6, 2013, he was reverted, and the reverting edit summary claims there was a consensus to keep the article as standalone. Can you straighten this out for me?--NukeofEarl (talk) 18:24, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

NukeofEarl - I wondered if this might come up again. I have to review the discussions, but I believe when I was involved in these discussions some years ago, there was agreement that there was sufficient coverage of the first book in the series to merit its own article, so it was kept on its own. The rest, however, lacked such coverage and were redirected to the series page. Would it be helpful for me to point you to that discussion? I, JethroBT drop me a line 18:28, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
If you could, that would be appreciated. I'd like to be able to link to it in my edit summary when I remove the "proposed merger" tag.--NukeofEarl (talk) 18:20, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Help with References.[edit]

Hello JethroBT, I am a new Wikipedian and I would like to create some article which is not to be found anywhere on internet. So, I can't put in references and this made Wikipedia delete an artice I had created. What to do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nelsonmand (talkcontribs) 02:45, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Barton McLean's page[edit]

I just wanted you to know that I have extensively revised Barton McLean's page. I have eliminated the laudable language, I have clarified passages that were too vague, I added background material that was written in the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians to flesh out the first paragraph where there was virtually no information, and I have eliminated one of the references which was incorrect. It reads much better, and I hope that the bar across the top can now be taken off.

Thanks, PriscillaAnne (talk) 00:59, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

@PriscillaAnne: Nice work here. As a note, you don't need to ask me to remove a tag even if I put it there. If you feel like you've addressed the issue sufficiently, it's completely fine to remove it yourself. One thing that would be really helpful would be to add ISBNs to the books you have listed as references. You might also consider splitting up his "Life" section into his early education and a separate section on his work / music production. I, JethroBT drop me a line 18:33, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
