T:TDYK[edit]

If you create large articles with inline references, like Amy Elizabeth Thorpe, please do not hesitate to nominate them at T:TDYK for front page exposure! Also, please tag the talk of an article with appropriate WikiProject (in this case, WikiProject Biography, United Kingdom and Intelligence come to mind). Thank you, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:31, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

For your excellent article creation at German Prisoners of War in the United States; being among the first to see contributions like these are why I patrol new pages. Thanks! VQuakr (talk) 00:52, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Very nice article, I agree, but could you please convert your references from bare URLs (I've done the last one as an example – the NYT ref)? Thanks, Ericoides (talk) 11:22, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the reply. No, I'm afraid I don't, although there might indeed be one. I tend to do it as I go along, and I don't find it too laborious; it's mainly a question of copying and pasting. But if there are many references to the same article, you can just use the same referencing code, as I've done for the msnbc ref. You can do this for, for example, this ref, which is cited more than once. Hope that helps. On another matter, I'm not sure if it wouldn't be better if you had World War II in the article title, eg German World War II Prisoners of War in the United States or something; otherwise it looks like German POWs generally, i.e it could include WWI etc (see my change to your DYK hook). It's v easy to change article titles; use the Move tab at the top of the page. Ericoides (talk) 13:21, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Ah, I see. No, I like the idea that it should concern ALL prisoners of war, so I'd keep the title as it is (the longer one is a bit of a mouthful) but make it clear in the lede that the article concerns all prisoners. Perhaps add a section head for WWI and a brief line or two covering that ... shouldn't be hard to find at least one mention online. But you'd then have to change the DYK hook too ... I might do all this myself, depending on time/whether you have done so already. Ericoides (talk) 13:44, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Follow-up question to 3o[edit]

Thank you for providing a 3o at Talk:Siege of Kolberg (1807). What are your thoughts regarding this? Skäpperöd (talk) 02:58, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

You and another editor are nearly in an edit-war and my overall opinion is that you are arguing over very small, almost irrelevant details. Please consider leaving this situation alone for awhile and working on other much-needed projects, but I have commented at Talk:Siege of Kolberg (1807).

DYK nomination of 2011 Jerusalem bus stop bombing[edit]

I did what you asked for here. The attack appears to have not been "provoked" by anything aside from the usual hatred and incitement of Palestinian terrorists. --GHcool (talk) 19:13, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I just saw the DYK. I don't know if you had anything to do with it, but if you did, thanks! :) --GHcool (talk) 17:23, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Your statements at WB[edit]

Since you have not answered the questions I asked over at the talk page of Western Betrayal, I am going to reiterate them here, because I find some of the comments quite strange. Who was this "third party" that asked you to make edits to the page? Why are you referring to your edits in the first person plural, "we"? Are you editing along with someone else?Volunteer Marek (talk) 07:30, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

to quote the pedantic standards you so happily and freely assign to everyone except yourself,

It would at least help matters if you could concentrate on talking on the issue at hand....Volunteer Marek (talk) 06:52, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Your EXTREME waste of time efforts to me and other editors is terrible, such as
endless arguing over minutia...such as arguing for days over the picture size of a Polish general, arguing over the fully cited two word addition 'and Poland' to an article, (the evidence of trivial bickering is large and available at your contributions page)
AND the nonstop arguing and obfuscation to forward a pro-Polish POV at the expense of any other fully cited fact or POV. Your distorted sense of how best to get others to consider the Polish view of history is in fact badly damaging your goals.
AND the selecitvely applied schoolmarm standards you yourself makeup to lamely attack facts and POVs you don't like - which is, judging by your contributions, the entire point of your presence on Wikipedia ---
Hopefully we will never again meet in mutual discussion and I ask that you avoid deliberately confronting me as I will avoid confronting you. Kindly stop shadowing me and lets just not attack and argue each other if we can = I will happily stay away from your work as long as it doesn't attack one of my additions, new articles, etc... (the addition of new information being my main purpose on Wikipedia.)Leidseplein (talk) 14:10, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
I note that you completely evaded my question.Volunteer Marek (talk) 14:19, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Note whatever you like (to yourself, perhaps on your talk page) and I am now formally requesting you not to post on my talk page unless it is about additions or new articles I write on Wikipedia.Leidseplein (talk) 14:22, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Image caption external link[edit]

The Manual of Style tells us: "External links should not normally be used in the body of an article. Articles can include an external links section at the end to list links to websites outside Wikipedia that contain further information, as opposed to citing sources."

You've provided no rationale at all for using an external link at a mid-sentence reference to the camp (without any image). It also failed to link to the file with the quoted text!

As for the image caption, I don't see how you can come to a private agreement with the owner of the image file. Anyone can use that image anywhere on Wikipedia. And nothing about the method of constructing a link is detailed in the image's license.

If you want to do something idiosyncratic, you need to put a comment in the text that will not display unless someone tries to edit this file, like this: You'll have to view the source of this page to see that. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 19:57, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
