Wonderful addition[edit]

to Edwin Blashfield. Hope to see a lot more of you on my watch list. Oh yes, if you put something, anything, on your user page then your name will appear as a blue link rather than a red one, suggesting that you are an experienced editor of longstanding rather than someone whose every edit must be carefully scrutinized.

Luebke book on the Commission of Fine Arts[edit]

I think it's wonderful that there's a new book out on the Commission of Fine Arts. The old one by Sue Kohler from 1995 was dated. However, rather than just add a reference to the book, you should cite the actual author of the chapter being cite, and a page number. First off, there are seven authors in the edited book — Lubke, William B. Bushong, Arleyn Levee, Zachary Schrag, Pamela Scott, Carroll William Westfall, Richard Guy Wilson — and I'm betting that you aren't constantly referencing Lubke's chapter. Second, someone could argue that without the page number, this is "good faith vandalism"...you like the book, want to call attention to it, but aren't actually referencing anything in the book (just guessing it's in there). Third, in some cases, the articles in question use a specific citation style of last name and page. By using a full reference and no page number in the reference citation, someone could come along and decide to delete the reference you added because it's not meeting the style guidelines. I assume you have the book (I certainly don't, and my local library isn't going to get it), and rather than rely on someone else some time down the road to add page numbers and the correct author it's probably best if you went back and added the right author's name and the right page number(s). - Tim1965 (talk) 20:10, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi Tim1965, thanks for the comment. All the information I've added so far has come from an appendix of Commission member bios at the back of the book, which was published without attribution, rather than one of the chapters attributed to an individual author. (The authors you cite actually wrote essays; the seven chapters were written by a few members of CFA staff.) Maybe just citing the appendix, since the entries are arranged alphabetically, or the appendix name and the page number, would be sufficient - what do you think?

from: [[User:Template:Kay Fanning|KXF]] Hi - I posted a question May 23 and see I have a reply from Anne DeLong, but I can't find my question or her reply on the Teahouse talk page or its archives. Where is the reply? My question was how to add titles to articles submitted for review, and how to select categories for articles. Thanks! KXF (talk) 13:53, 27 May 2014 (UTC)

Repeated errors, please address[edit]

Hello, a few consistent concerns with your most recent batch of contributions:

  • For a bio, the person's name should be the very first words of the article, and in bold.
  • You're somehow submitting articles in such a way you're getting convoluted titles like "User:KXF/sandbox/Diane R. Wolf". I'm not sure why your "Submit" is moving it to such titles from your Sandbox, rather than just to Draft:Diane R. Wolf. In any case, should you see your draft end up with an odd long title, please look at the bottom of the yellow Submit box on your page, there should be a button saying "this should instead be at Draft:Diane R. Wolf". Just hit that button and approve the move and you'll be in the proper location for review.
  • A bunch of your articles have footnotes, but lack the {{reflist}} code at the bottom which actually lists the footnotes. Please make sure you include the References heading and said coding at the very end of the article so it will properly display your footnotes.

These errors cropped up in about a dozen recent submissions of yours, so please modify your approach just slightly to help minimize burden on the reviewers in simple format fixes. Thanks! MatthewVanitas (talk) 20:55, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
