Disambiguation link notification for February 23[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Data exchange, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page OWL (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.

Bocage Plantation -- External Links[edit]

Thank you for taking an interest in this new article. What are your concerns with regard to the External Links section? I've looked at Wikipedia:External links and no policy there strikes me as being violated. The plantation website link and NRHP links are redundant to the references, but both are important pages, especially the first, which would stay under policy. The auction site link gives rather recondite but relevant information. The YouTube video doesn't quite duplicate the time-indexed reference, is something worthy of being watched from the beginning, and doesn't violate copyright, as it's obviously produced by the channel owner (unless clearing it with him is a pre-requisite). Dhtwiki (talk) 22:02, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dhtwiki. Thanks for following up! If it had been more clear-cut, I would have just removed those links from Bocage Plantation, so I was mainly marking it for somebody else to take a look. Personally, I didn't get anything out of the auction site except the date of the auction, who it was benefitting, and who the auctioneers were. If that's relevant, I'd rather see it as a reference than an external link. There's no blanket ban on YouTube, but this is a self-published video which spends the first several seconds lingering on the sign for the B&B that currently occupies the place. Having it as an external link more or less promotes it to everyone reading this page on Wikipedia, which doesn't seem particularly beneficial here. But keep it if you think it makes sense. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 22:31, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Hello. I've made some changes to External Links, to address some of your concerns. I dropped the National Park Service link, as it is too redundant, being in References. I thought about dropping the auction site, until I found that the furnishings of the last, 1941, remodeling, and perhaps a large part of this one, depending on how much was purchased by the present owner, were itemized and illustrated at pages accessed through the drop down menus, which makes the link of more general interest. For the YouTube video, I've given the length of the longish video, and I've noted that it's "somewhat promotional". However, once you get past the opening shot of the sign encouraging people to book Bocage for events and the generally gushing tone, which may or may not be from a disinterested party, I think there's plenty of good information you're not going to find elsewhere. BTW, I'd like to be able to reference this discussion on the articles talk page, if that's all right with you.Dhtwiki (talk) 23:25, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

LoCascio[edit]

Hello! Thank you so much for moving my article over! However, I realized afterwards that I got the guy's name wrong. It's not LoCasio, it's LoCascio, see the Huffington post article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-locascio/ How do I change that? ConcreteFancy

I've moved it to the correct spelling, thanks for the contrib & for pointing that out, ConcreteFancy. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 17:04, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

So Fast! Thank you!!! I'm going to look for more notable people to add... I might just wait until after the submission process is a little less bogged down. ConcreteFancy (talk) 17:07, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

There are lots of ways to help in Wikipedia, ConcreteFancy, and you might also want to edit some existing articles. For instance, you can look at the categories on any page to find more articles on the same topic. Like: Category:People stubs by occupation. And you can check out the Wikipedia:Teahouse to find a friendly community of other editors.Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 17:19, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:Gujarati writers[edit]

Thanks for adding them. I think they should be ordered alphabetically. I consider to add almost all Gujarati writers in them as we do not have many articles about them now. If it is cluttered in futute, we may remove as needed. Regards, -Nizil (talk) 14:53, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

I see what you mean, DGG. The trouble is this is a second-order problem, about "coverage", and specifically balancing the topics we write about. (To first order it passes GNG, and perhaps other litmus tests.) Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 20:25, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Gender Responsive Corrections[edit]

Hi. Hate to bug you, but I'm a bit knew at AfC. I went to the following article, Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Gender Responsive Corrections, and noticed your note that it read like an essay, dated today. Earlier, I had declined an article for the very same reason (since it's on the list in the automatic program as one of the reasons for deletion). Should I not have? Should I simply have left a note? Thanks in advance for your help. Onel5969 (talk) 00:13, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Onel5969. You're right, that's a valid reason to decline an article. I didn't decline that one straightaway because I don't know enough about the subject. It struck me as a neologism but it had references that looked reasonable -- so I was hoping that somebody else would look at it & edit it into a better form. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 06:42, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Just wanted to make sure I hadn't done something incorrectly. Have a good day! Onel5969 (talk) 12:52, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

re: "Newbies do complain about rejections, too."[edit]

Hi Jodi. To be clear: did you find that AfC newbie participants are more likely to complain to the reviewers than to thank them? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:47, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

No, Piotrus, we didn't look at that. Thanks can happen through the Special:Notifications, and my impression is that Teahouse and the AfC Helpdesk more often get complaints. My only point was that it's not only experienced WPians who complain. :) Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 13:25, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Request on 15:44:06, 15 September 2014 for assistance on AfC submission by Douggeenyc[edit]


Hi Jody,

Not all the references are from press releases, like this one: http://commercialobserver.com/2014/08/french-bus-tour-company-opens-in-midtown/ Secondly, those that are, are on legit news sources in France, including Le Figaro, the 2nd largest newspaper in France, RTL a large French TV and radio station. It's really disappointing to know that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Bus_Company has less references, most of which point to their own links, can be on wikipedia and we cannot.

Douggeenyc (talk) 14:56, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Doug, References are used for different purposes. Here's what you need to include an organization in Wikipedia. The Commercial Observer reference is not a good example; it does in fact look like it's derived from a press release.

I looked again at the Le Figaro reference, [http://www.lefigaro.fr/flash-eco/2014/05/14/97002-20140514FILWWW00127-la-ratp-lance-des-bus-touristiques-a-new-york.php for User:Douggeenyc/Open Loop New York. Again, this looks like it's derived from a press release so it is not useful for showing that this should be included in Wikipedia.

Please review the policy on paid editing. Jodi.a.schneider (talk) 15:25, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
