Earth Abides[edit]

Magnificent job on Earth Abides! Note that TV documentary Aftermath Population Zero has many scenes similar to passages in Earth Abides: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/aftermath/ Pepso2 (talk) 12:57, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

Hello, I left a cursory review of Earth Abides, which you added to the Novels WikiProject PR page. You can read my comments [Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Peer review/Earth Abides here]. Do let me know if you have any questions or comments. María (habla conmigo) 17:50, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

You're very welcome for the review, but I wouldn't sweat the small stuff too much. You're already off to a great start; I'm very impressed that you were able to find that many reliable sources (aside from the Wikipedia articles, that is)! I've found that researching is the easiest part about writing an article; it's the anal retentive attention to Manual of Style details that will kill you. If you ever have five hours to kill, there's always WP:MOS to keep you busy. :) Good luck! María (habla conmigo) 18:10, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Earth abides/La Terre demeure[edit]

Hello Jacqke,

I wrote the short page about "La terre demeure" in the french wikipedia. This few words don't explain the impact this book had on me. The french edition is no more available and I live with its souvenir.

Your version is very extensive and covers many points of view : bravo !


WikiProject Articles needing copy edit (tentative name)[edit]

Hello there!

I have begun laying the groundwork for a new WikiProject that has a very simple goal, to improve Wikipedia by dealing with the articles tagged for copy edit, and I am wondering if you are interested in helping me start it. This project is not a clone of WP:LOCE because we will not deal with requests for review (that is currently handled by our good friends over at Peer Review).

I expect that this will be a relaxed, happy and casual WikiProject, because participants will be able to take things at their own pace and use the project page to ask other participants for help. The project proposal is here, and I have created an almost-functional project page in my userspace here.

There are now over 4000 articles needing copy edit, and very, very few people working on them, so any help, however small, is appreciated. If you are interested, please sign up at the proposal page. Once we have enough people, I will shift the project page, along with its subpages from my userspace into the Wikipedia namespace. For now we can use this section of my talk page to discuss the direction and details of the project, and, of course, its name. *grin*

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Jacqke! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot notifying you on behalf of the the unreferenced biographies team that 1 of the articles that you created is currently tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,431 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

  1. Al Dempsey - Find sources: "Al Dempsey" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

Thanks!--DASHBot (talk) 00:32, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Arnold Shultz[edit]

Hello, do you have any sources for your statement that the fiddle player in the photo that you linked to in the Shultz article ist Clarence Wilson? To my knowledge, the fiddler is believed to be "Uncle Pen" Vandiver. The yodeling cowboy (talk) 14:16, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, My source for that link is from the book "In the Country of Country" by Nicholas Dawidoff. Dawidoff seems to me a credible researcher who spent a great deal of time researching the origins of Country Music. That being said, I am still pursuing a definitive answer on that, so that the photo can be used on Wikipedia.Jacqke (talk) 15:19, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Draft misplaced in mainspace[edit]

Hello. You placed an article that you said in your edit summary that was supposed to be a personal sandbox, but it was misplaced in the main encyclopedia space. I have moved it back into your userspace for you, it is located at User:Jacqke/draft article on mandores. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:14, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! Never used the sandbox before.Jacqke (talk) 01:19, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, to get a user subpage it must have your username and then This→/← type of slash (I can never remember which is the backslash and which is the forwardslash). Then you can title it whatever you want. So it would be User:Jacqke/insert title here. Again, If you have any questions I am happy to answer them. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:41, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

refs[edit]

If you name a reference, you only have to type it once, then just call the ref name after that. Ref's go after punctuation, but I'm sure you knew that being a wikipedia copy editor and all that goes with it. Merry Christmas!--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 03:32, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I have to admit that it has been a long time since I actively copy edited; simple fact is I generally lack the time and tend to get on when I have no sleep and therefore lack a brain. I appreciate your reminders. Merry ChristmasJacqke (talk) 06:40, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Yellow Wolf[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Yellow Wolf, and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://www.friendsnezpercebattlefields.org/yellowwolf.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.) CorenSearchBot (talk) 03:14, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

December 2011[edit]

Thank you for your recent contributions, such as Yellow Wolf. Getting started creating new articles on Wikipedia can be tricky, and you might like to try creating a draft version first, which you can then ask for feedback on if necessary, with less risk of speedy deletion. Do make sure you also read help available to you, including Your First Article and the Tutorial. You might also like to try the Article Wizard, which has an option to create a draft version. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 03:18, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

I should have said thanks before now. The user space is very cool, Thank you!Jacqke (talk) 07:39, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Yellow Wolf[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Yellow Wolf requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. jsfouche ☽☾Talk 03:19, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about this. I have removed the speedy tag, which was to my mind placed very hastily. Please make a start on the article proper as soon as possible, and if you will excuse some advice, in your very first edits include some information about why Yellow Wolf is a significant individual. --Slp1 (talk) 03:26, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I will do that. I haven't had a bot after me like that before, and was wondering what to do. I have time and will get an article in place tonight, including notability.Jacqke (talk) 03:47, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello Jacqke![edit]

With regard to your first article in the January 2010 CE backlog drive: you have left a comment in your summary list of completed articles, whereas a word count is expected. Your first article Aralia spinosa had a length of 656 words before you began to edit it. This is the number that needs to go in brackets. If you still want to leave your comment, I guess the talk page would be the place. See what I have done. if you are still unclear (fellow contestant). Happy New Year!! --Greenmaven (talk) 00:20, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. Couldn't figure out what to do from the other entries on that page. Happy New Year to you too!Jacqke (talk) 00:32, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Can you tell me, because I am trying to make sense of this, if I shorten an article, do I put the negative difference as the number of words? When I was done editing, the article was 2 words less than when I started (lots of editing that doesn't get covered there). So would the total words be 2?Jacqke (talk) 00:35, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I found your entry and now I understand. Thank you again!Jacqke (talk) 01:25, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
The word count before you copy edit is the count that goes in the table. Shorter or longer does not matter, just as Greenmaven says above. I see the table was corrected while I was posting here.--DThomsen8 (talk) 01:30, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistance. I am doing a back and forth look to see if I'm doing right. I think I correctd while you were writing.Jacqke (talk) 01:34, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Mary C. Smith photo[edit]

You're welcome! Didn't get a chance to look into it until now but the entire book, published in 1893, is online at UPenn. The file can be changed from a non-free one to a free use one because the book and photo were published before 1923. Will be glad to make those changes and let you decide about moving it to Commons. We hope (talk) 23:00, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

That sounds good. Thank you. It probably does need to go to the Commons, but I haven't transfered to there before.Jacqke (talk) 23:02, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Image tagging for File:Geo Hager.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Geo Hager.jpg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the page and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

Suggestion[edit]

I suggest using the "show preview" button as this will save history space and lower exhaustion on the servers. This will also allow you to change your contributions before submitting. SwisterTwister talk 19:56, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

I need to use that more. I do use it, but I frequently forget when making lots of small edits. I had been thinking that I need to get more done in fewer saves. Is it possible to copy a page to the sandbox, work on it there and then copy the whole thing back into the regular page?Jacqke (talk) 04:23, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Benjamin Brown Martin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Benjamin Brown Martin has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Yasht101 07:50, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 22:24, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
