Yelp History[edit]

Hi, I should explain why I reverted your undo of 'who instigated the local services project based on user reviews' on the early history of Yelp regarding David Galbraith. Regarding your comment: "redundant and creates undo weight, his role as co founder is clear". I don't think his role is clear if it merely mentions that he came up with the name, as he clearly outlines his role instigating a project based on user reviews on his website: http://davidgalbraith.org/portfolio/companies-yelp/ with pictures which show the original office where Yelp was incubated and original designs for Yelp. This story is further validated by Om Malik in the article linked to, which adds weight not only because he is one of Silicon Valley's most well known journalists, with more than a million followers on Twitter, but that he states he had first hand knowledge of the early days of Yelp and that its history was not completely known, something which Wikipedia is specifically good at getting to accurately, and so this seems important. I originally though the undo might have been someone vandalizing (hence the tone of the note on the undo I did, which I apologize for, but having looked at your impressive history of edits realize that you care deeply about accuracy. I hope you agree with keeping the original I propose since it reflects a balanced view of the facts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.131.229.132 (talk) 22:42, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Sorry if my comment was not clear. The sentence clearly states that Galbraith is the co-founder and he came up with the name. Its not necessary or desirable to specify every nuance of his minor involvement. WP summarizes sources and does not include any detail. Furthermore Galbraith's personal website is not a valid source for such claims per WP:RS. Galbraith's involvement in Yelp is rarely mentioned in the hundreds of articles on Yelp therefore a minor mention that he was co-founder and came up with the name is enough. Per WP:BRD I urge you to allow my deletion to stand and join other editors on the talk page for further discussion.-- KeithbobTalk 00:15, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, The sentence doesn't state that Galbraith was a co-founder of Yelp, as is said in the Om Malik article, but that could be added. In fact the main thrust of the Om Malik article is that the company history omits this and that his involvement was not minor and that Om Malik was a first hand witness.. The Galbraith source was not linked to for this reason but provides photographs and examples of works that demonstrate clearly that the Om Malik article is correct. The edit that you have made is not removing 'every nuance' but removes every sense of the history of Galbraith's involvement other than the coming up with the name, giving the false idea that he was not involved. The Om Malik article suggest that the involvement of Galbraith was much more that I suggested, I could have added this, however merely added information that is uncontroversial, pertinent to the history and clearly corroborated by Galbraith's personal account, so I have undone your deletion and we can take this to the general talk page as you discuss. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.131.229.132 (talk) 05:44, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

In response to the comments made by Mr. KeithBob, I thought I will weigh in. It is surprising that the company has gone to great lengths to whitewash the history for no apparent reason and erase a key contributor. But this is common behavior lately. There were many of us who are first hand witnesses to the formation of the company and can reaffirm of the role played by David Galbraith -- Om! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.14.155.193 (talk) 14:20, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

It's unfortunate that single purpose IP accounts are intent on repeatedly returning to give undue weight to the marginal coverage Galbraith has received in the press in regard to his involvement with Yelp!.-- KeithbobTalk 17:52, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Avril (singer)[edit]

Greetings Keithbob, How can you close the dispute without addressing my concerns? The information I added to the article is sourced and not defamatory. If you can prove how it violates Wikipedia's BLP policy, I'll rest my case. Versace1608 (Talk) 01:07, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, the closing of your case was strictly procedural and has nothing to do with the validity of your case. DRN is for moderation, if the other party refuses to participate the case is automatically closed. You will need to try some other dispute resolution venue such as WP:RfC or WP:3O etc. -- KeithbobTalk 17:53, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

A Question?[edit]

Hello! Recently, I attempted to begin moderating the dispute over Bob Avakian. However, you stated that the dispute would be closed in 24 hours unless a DRN volunteer begins moderation? Did I miss some policy to notify some list that moderation had begun? Did something not recognize me as a volunteer because I only signed up as a volunteer a few days ago? Is there anything more I should do? Icarosaurvus (talk) 22:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Icarosaurvus, thanks for stopping by. I had the impression from your comment: "I hope I"ve been of some help" at DRN that you had just stopped by to give your opinion and left the scene. You did not make it clear that you were opening the case for moderation or indicate how the discussion should proceed. In hindsight I should have contacted you to clarify, so I apologize for not doing so. I'll strike the 24 hr close notice and allow you to continue to moderate the case. Please keep in mind that DRN is not a 'third opinon' situation. We have WP:30 for that. Though its not prohibited, giving your opinion in a case is something I personally try to refrain from doing as I feel it inhibits my ability to stand apart from the discussion and be an impartial moderator who maintains order and leads the discussion and reminds participants of WP policy and guidelines as needed (which you have done). So please go ahead and continue with the discussion and let me know if you need advice, guidance or assistance with anything. And thanks for helping at DRN. Best, -- KeithbobTalk 13:30, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
I would appreciate any help you could render, as this is certainly the first time I have done this. I simply read half a dozen randomly selected logs of such situations, and attempted to phrase my comment in a similar way to the ones phrased by the volunteers in those logs. If you've any advice at all on how to proceed, I'd love to hear it. Additionally, if there is anything I should do differently in the future, please let me know. Thank you for responding in such a timely manner. Icarosaurvus (talk) 19:02, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
