Re File:Miskel 0002.JPG: please read this. In any case, by the look of it, that image could have been uploaded as public domain because copyright expired. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 23:20, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

December 2010[edit]

Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I've noticed that you have been adding your signature to some of your edits to articles, such as the edit you made to Martha-Bryan Allen. This is a common mistake to make and has probably already been corrected. There is no need to sign your edits to article content, as the article's edit history serves the function of attributing contributions, so you only need to use your signature to make discussions more readable, such as on article talk pages or project pages such as the Village Pump. If you would like further information about distinguishing types of pages, please see What is an article?. Again, thank you for contributing, and enjoy your Wikipedia experience! Thank you. →GƒoleyFour← 03:29, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

La Belle Titcomb[edit]

Hi Jfbarlow, thank you so much for adding information to the La Belle Titcomb page I started. I really appreciate the information about her father's death in particular. "McEinbett" is also a misspelling of her second husband's actual name. I would love to see any more information you have managed to gather, you are correct, there is not much record of her after the 1920s. I have traced her until about 1925 and have found nothing after that date. I suspect she died abroad as she was performing/touring the world extensively after Nat Wills died. I am going to make small edits to your changes to make the tone more neutral to conform with Wikipedia standards. Please feel free to contact me, I love to talk about Heloise :-) Bookworm2828 (talk) 19:56, 20 February 2011 (UTC)Bookworm2828

April 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. It might not have been your intention, but your recent edit removed maintenance templates from Marmein Dancers. When removing maintenance templates, please be sure to either resolve the problem that the template refers to, or give a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. If this was a mistake, don't worry, as your removal of this template has been reverted. Take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia, and if you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 23:54, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Please do not remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Marmein Dancers, without resolving the problem that the template refers to, or giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary. Your removal of this template does not appear constructive, and has been reverted. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 00:01, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Please stop. Continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Marmein Dancers, without resolving the problem that the template refers to may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your being blocked from editing Wikipedia. Eeekster (talk) 00:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. Before saving your changes to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Marmein Dancers. Doing so helps everyone understand the intention of your edit (and prevents legitimate edits from being mistaken for vandalism). It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 00:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Diseuse[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Diseuse has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not a dictionary

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

John B. Mason[edit]

Jfbarlow: A long long time ago I read a book on Mrs. Fiske(Minnie Maddern Fiske) written by Archie Binns. Binns wrote that one of Mason's ex-wives was blackmailing him or something like that in order to receive a large cache of alimony. Mrs. Fiske came to Mason's rescue and put a stop to Mason's ex-wife looting him. Mason died not too long afterwards It must've been the second wife Katherine Grey. That book on Mrs Fiske was published in 1956 but I haven't read it since the 1980s. Copies might be on Amazon.com or Alibris.com. Cheers Koplimek (talk) 01:04, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hey Jfbarlow, I'm posting this message on your talk page because I noticed that you've recently created the new article B. F. Zeidman--The layout of the article makes it very clear. It's always nice to see users contributing to make Wikipedia better!Jipinghe (talk) 21:57, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

May Yohé[edit]

Hi. I enjoyed your new article on May Yohé, and I fixed some of the references for you. You should check out WP:MOS. The images shouldn't overlap each other and pinch the text so much, so I redistributed them. By the way, is her birth name Mary or May? You had a note in the article that May was an acronym (perhaps for Mary Augusta Yohé?), but what is your source for that statement? Also, you need to add dates for the shows in her US career. All the best! -- Ssilvers (talk) 14:40, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

In my research I'm often finding dates that conflict. I'm trying to sort that out. Mary is her birth name and I will cite the source for her stage name. Thank you John F. Barlow (talk) 21:24, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
The article is looking better and better! Yes, old sources often conflict. Good job with the research. Where you cite the New York Times or any other newspaper, could you please add the title or heading of the story cited? Also, of course, a page number is needed wherever it is available. BTW, if one or two good sources give the information for a fact, you don't need to cite three or four sources in a row. I have left you some hidden comments where I thought that something seems to be missing. I also moved the information about her last husband's death to a footnote, because the info is tangential to her article. All the best! -- Ssilvers (talk) 15:05, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

One problem is the ancestry.com Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements section does not give page numbers, only image numbers. I can retrieve page numbers from The New York Times though through a library source. John F. Barlow (talk) 21:02, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry I stepped on your toes there. OK to proceed now. Miss Yohé sure married a lot of men. Mr. Smuts must have been very agreeable!  :-) -- Ssilvers (talk) 00:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
BTW, note that Ancestry.com is not a good source to use in Wikipedia. All the best, -- Ssilvers (talk) 00:20, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I agree when using family tree research, I see no problem though with scanned newspaper articles. BTW, thanks for the help John F. Barlow (talk) 02:38, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm thinking Robert Thomas was the son of May Yohe, it's the father who is the mystery. The Portland druggist's name was Thomas, not Thompson as the original newspaper article indicated. The adoption took place 1908 or 1909. The father was said to be a British Columbia mining man. John F. Barlow (talk) 03:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
It looks that way from what you've found so far. We later refer to "the woman who raised" Thomas. See if you can find out that his adoptive mother was Rosa Thomas.... It's all coming together. All the best! -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:47, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Bertha Galland[edit]

Jf, kudos to you on this article. I wanted to do her entry for the past two or three years. I collated a lot of the info but just kept putting it off. So imagine how surprised I was going over your contribution list and ran smack dab into her entry. Surprises all the time. Most people don't know of her as she never did movies and her theatrical career lasted only nine years. Did you find it hard to discover that she died in a car crash with her mother? I lucked up on that info in the New York Times back pages. Great job on those theatrical entries. I mentioned before, I loved your updating on the Marshall P. Wilder page. All My Best!

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Symbol question.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including article. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject. You do not have to rate the article if you don't want to, other WikiProject members will do it. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow thm to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. This can help you too, as the WikiProject members will often defend your work from deletion and try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information.

Izetta Jewel at the 1924 Democratic National Convention[edit]

Hello, Jfbarlow. Thank you for your nice wikiarticle on Izetta Jewel. I have nominated it for DYK. You can see the nomination at here. Could you add the fact that she was the first woman to address a major American political party convention into the 1924 Democratic National Convention article, please? I don't have the refs, so I couldn't do it. Thanks in advance. --PFHLai (talk) 17:10, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, John. I cannot access the NYT, so I can't use the second ref. But anyway, I have added the point to the Legacy section of the 1924 Democratic National Convention wikiarticle. This is not really related to DYK, but sth I felt should be done while the refs for the Jewel article are still handy. Thanks. Happy editing. Cheers! --PFHLai (talk) 22:18, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

You added a link in Patience (opera), and this is certainly the same person, but her bio article mentions other activities during the run of Patience, which was Sept 1881 to February 1882.

Hi. Good job with the article. A couple of general WP:MOS points, though, that affect all your articles. First, would you please spell out the name of the month, day and year: September 7, 1915, because 9-7-1915 is ambiguous - It could mean July 9, 1915. Second, headings should not be in title case.

Lightnin'[edit]

Hello Jfbarlow, good article. However, in accordance with right of precedence, the article you created would need to be moved to Lightnin' while the actual Lightnin' article itself would have to be moved to Lightnin' (film), because the film was based on the play, and not vice-versa, as you are clearly showing. Let he administrators help you with this, should you plan to proceed, otherwise merging your article into the original may be suggested.--Plain Jane Doe (talk) 12:17, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Lightnin' , The Silent Voice[edit]

Hi JfBarlow, The article you created for Lightnin' (play) looks just fine. I'm not sure of 'procedure of precedence' that's discussed. Most certainly the film is derivative of the play, as is usually the case when a motion picture is made of a play, novel etc. It's not a golden rule I would wager as Spiderman running on Broadway came after several films and animations. But it appears just fine to me.

The Silent Voice (play) is redirecting to the playwright because the article on the playwright himself is a fresh article but the 'cookies' used by wiki is still reading the name of the play which his name was under for a long time. Don't worry, I did the same thing with the Dorothy Donnelly article when I created it several years ago. It had been some other previous article that I started or something and was not needed so I converted to the Donnelly article. Matter of fact, cookies might still lead to the Donnelly article as a redirect from what was previously listed. Don't worry it takes time for the cookies to get accustomed to the traffic going in and out of your new article on the playwright. This happens on wikipedia a lot, consolidating an author and his work or a director and his film or different versions of the same story under one title. It makes it difficult to separate once someone gets around to writing distinct or separate article for each version. For example Six Cylinder Love(combines the 1931 Spencer Tracy version with the original 1923 I created, now I got to separate them), or the 1924 silent Merton of the Movies which has existed like that for years. But it just takes time for the cookies to wear off of that redirect. Hope this helps. Koplimek (talk) 02:12, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Hey, I just came across your article, and I think it's quite good! Now there is another article called Lightnin', which I see you know about, since it appears in your article.

Marie Jansen[edit]

What a good find! Thanks for letting me know about her. I did a little work on this. I am sure that one could dig up more about her. We really ought to try to dig up a more precise birth date. -- Ssilvers (talk) 18:56, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

People in the theatre routinely lied about their ages (and the ages of others), including the men, often telling huge whoppers. In any case, it would be interesting to find out when she graduated from the conservatory. It is certainly a head scratcher that her Her career didn't begin until around 1880, so even if she was born in 1857, she would have been 32 or 33 22 or 23 then. If she had been born in 1849, as the Times indicates, she would have been 43 33 when she played Iolanthe.

Infoboxes[edit]

Hi. I do not think infoboxes on the actor/singer/writer biography articles are helpful (although I agree that they can be helpful for athletes and politicians). They contain only duplicate information that is (or should be) already discussed in the LEAD, sometimes contain information that is not that important, and more often than not attract errors. They also take up space that is better used for other purposes. This has been a contentious issue on some articles. Do you mind removing the box that you just added to William Brough (writer)? I haven't asked you to remove any on articles that you created (though I do not think them helpful), but I'd ask you not to add them to others. Thanks for your consideration either way. -- Ssilvers (talk) 01:05, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! Very good to hear. I have removed it. Wikipedia's rule on the matter is that whether or not an article has an infobox is to be decided on a case-by-case basis by a consensus of the editors working on the article. If you don't mind, let me set forth at slightly more length my thoughts about infoboxes for the sort of actor/singer/writer bio articles that we have worked on together (obviously, some Wikipedians disagree): The boxes are repetitive and do not emphasize the most important information, as the narrative LEAD section can do so well. Also, the box often limits the size of the first image and takes up valuable space at the beginning of the article. Some of the information typically in them about death, spouses and children, for example, are not so important that they should be the first thing that readers see. All of the other information in the box is carefully set forth in the correct sections of the article, with references. The infoboxes often accumulate errors, that are hard to catch and other inconsistencies with the rest of the article. I also think that starting the article with the infobox template makes the article look technical an inaccessible to new editors who might wish to contribute to the article. -- Ssilvers (talk) 01:33, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
