Spinster mess[edit]

Lucky you, LoS, that I'm requesting your assistance at Spinster, my thinking being that you're a member of the Wiki Project for Women's History, the article is rated as high importance, and not least, you're a wise contributor. There is, perhaps, a discussion to be had as to whether recent scholarship regarding the word can be characterized as engendering 'controversy' or 'debate', but what's going on isn't a discussion, and the version that's now in place includes an unfortunate lede. I've wasted too much time there, and if you don't want to get sucked in--which I'd well understand--perhaps you could bring this to the attention of other good editors. Thanks in advance, JNW (talk) 12:36, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

No promises, but I'll take a look! LadyofShalott 16:15, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for looking at the article. The edit lock seems to be off, and the same person using IP addresses made a change immediately. If you have time, I wondered if you could look at the version that seemed to offend that person. This is the link of the edit showing what changed https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spinster&diff=612863151&oldid=612854341 I hope that works to get you directly to what was repeatedly deleted for no direct reason given. Is any of it worth saving? At the time of the edit lock, the text had been removed at least twice, including links & quotes to discussion of current reactions to use of the word, and if the label of being feminist makes it harder to get married (or not be a spinster). --Prairieplant (talk) 06:49, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

I was surprised that this didn't exist yet. --kelapstick(bainuu) 18:10, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Well thank you for doing it! It is certainly a needed article on a notable topic. LadyofShalott 16:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I believe there is a DYK in there somewhere. --kelapstick(bainuu) 18:41, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hello LadyofShalott--can you please help me? You're an administrator. I happened to see that Dolce far niente was just created, in Chinese, but it is nothing more then a definition of the Italian phrase in Chinese. In addition, the phrase is also the name of a poem by Finnish poet Aaro Hellaakoski, and that poem probably deserves an article. Thank you, Mindy Dirt (talk) 03:15, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you: the problem has been solved! But do you know how to put in one of those links to Wiktionary or Wikiquote? Mindy Dirt (talk) 22:02, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
