Invitation to vote on an article[edit]

hello. since you are an editor of the article Ammar ibn Yasir, would you be interested in voting for it to make it a featured article or not? thank you for your time Grandia01 (talk) 13:00, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm afraid i take very little interest in FA; i contribute primarily as a gnome, behind the scenes, and thus it would hardly be appropriate for me to offer an opinion. Cheers, LindsayHello 04:36, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Soliciting comment...[edit]

Hi! Would you care to review my FA nomination for the article Of Human Feelings? The article is about a jazz album by Ornette Coleman, and the criteria for FA articles is at WP:FACR. If not, feel free to ignore this message. Cheers! Dan56 (talk) 09:49, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

List of pests and diseases of roses[edit]

Hello LindayH,
while I agree that the = at the beginning of the row looked strange, I think that they actually provided additional information, showing that the name following was a synonym (I'm just checking that assumption and will try to find a better solution for that list I imported from List of rose diseases). Your clean-up therefore changes the meaning - but probably only for those who come up with the idea that synonyms are meant... ;->
Best wishes, Anna reg (talk) 06:58, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Anna reg. It's not so much that they looked strange ~ though i think they were unnecessary ~ as that a single equals sign at the beginning of a line is interpreted by the wiki software as a heading, so it then looks for another one at the end of the line. Thus we shouldn't be using them in quite that way.
That said, i think the page looks all right without them, and that the two different species names are synonyms (unlikely, surely) or cause the same symptoms is clear as it is now. Cheers, LindsayHello 06:25, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Lucia[edit]

Hello LindsayH,

Though we are on different sides of this sad discussion, your comments make a lot of sense, and reflect well on you. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:10, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Cullen328, those are very kind words. I trust that this sad issue is moving towards a consensus; ideally, one which will stick. Cheers, LindsayHello 15:43, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

RE:Please take care[edit]

Ah, I see what you mean. Thanks for informing me I'll be more vial-giant when I'm welcome IP's or users. Crazy131 (talk) 13:42, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Help please :)[edit]

Hi there, I can see you've just edited the 7digital article. Can you please read my comments on the talk page and help to answer them. I'd be very grateful, bit of a newbie to Wikipedia.

Thank you in advance

Llamalady28 (talk) 14:15, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi LindsayH

Thanks for your comments re my first (very unsuccessful) attempt at editing a page. I have added as many references as I can to the No fire Zone entry and hope that it is now acceptable.

Regards

re 1.43.27.80[edit]

Hi LindsayH,
I see that you dropped a few friendly messages on the talkpage at User talk:1.43.27.80#Your reverts edits. I have too, without much result.
They have again been adding unsourced or poorly sourced info to pages, including ignoring an apparently reliable source and using uncited info on a persons (Arthur Stace) ‎ WP bio page as a source to add them to Balmain, New South Wales as being born there. My comments at WP:Australian Wikipedians' notice board#Arthur Stace birthplace etc may be of interest. Regards, ₫220 of Borg 14:04, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Hey. This is Jaywubba1887. My apologies for the editing errors. I have been using the Wikipedia mobile app and for some reason when I edit some articles, the app, once it saves and processes my edits, will delete large sections of the article by itself. I have no intention of deleting the sections and will edit on the full version of Wikipedia from now on, so this won't happen again. I feel like it is a code error or something on the app version of Wikipedia. Additionally, I'll be more specific with the edit summaries on the regular version of Wikipedia from now on. Sorry again for everything. Jay (talk) 00:32, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Ameraucana page[edit]

Lindsay, I hope you get this message, Im a little confused with wiki message system.

Concerning the Ameraucana page. I did put verifiable information and I did cite it. The history portion of the page was taken from the Ameraucana breeders club history section, it was written by one of the "actual creators" of the breed. Since the Ameraucana breed has been around for only 30 years. Most if not all of the handful creators of the breed are still alive, most are current members of the Ameruacana breeders club.

There is not a breed of fowl that has been so misrepresented as the Ameraucana breed. Putting actual,verifiable, and accurate information is crucial to help the breed. Educating people because a chicken looks like an Ameruacana doesnt mean its an Ameraucana. There is still a lot of inaccurate information on the page, and Ive seen the sources of that information and they are wrong according to what the "actual creators" of the Ameraucana say. And they have posted their information online.

I mean come on, there can be no higher verifiable source then the people who actually created the breed. Unlike other breeds that were created 100-200 years ago, We are fortunate enough to have the creators of the Ameraucana breed still alive today, and we can get the absolute verifiable truth. I believe the information given by the "actual creators" of the breed should bare more weight than some website that describes the Ameraucana in their image. I will edit the page again and I will cite every sentence if I have to so it doesn't get deleted.

I will do what you say and put verifiable truth

Thank you for letting me know what type of information is required on a wiki page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Csr326 (talkcontribs) 18:14, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Csr326 ~ guess what? I got your message! Once you're used to it, the wiki system of talk pages is pretty intuitive ~ talk about the article on the article's talk page, ask questions or other communication with other editors on your talk page or theirs. So, well done.
One of the biggest problems that Wikipedia (we often abbreviate it WP around here, just so you know) has, at least in mine opinion, is that we use what might be called wiki-ghetto language. What i mean is that we say things that you might think mean one thing but actually they mean something else, something specialised to WP. Verifiable and verifiability are two words we use that way. If you look at this page it will tell you about what we mean. Essentially, what we're saying is that everything we write must be accessible by other people, readers of the encyclopeadia, should they have the ability and access. What it boils down to is that what we say must have been published somewhere that it can be looked up ~ books, magazines, on-line, other media ~ in other words, we are republishers, in a way, of what is already out there.
What this means, in the case of Ameraucana in the particular, is that the recollections of the creators of the breed are useless for our purpose, unless they have been published elsewhere and, ideally, recognised as reliable and accurate. To pick an example of silliness, it's no good me writing in the article about my brother-in-law that he was ill at a certain point and that's why he did what he did, if i base it simply on his having told me so. That would be what we call WP:OR ~ Original Research ~ which we do not do; it is contrary to the aims of the encyclopaedia.
I hope that this helps. If you have any further questions, please ask. As it happens, i am shortly going off-line, but i will look back in over the next days and see, and i'll take a look at the article too, to see how that's going and if i can help out. Hey, thanks for caring. Cheers, LindsayHello 20:11, 15 March 2015 (UTC)


Ameraucana page[edit]

Lindsay I was wondering can posting pictures of the accepted color varieties to go along with the description be possible? If so how would one go about doing that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Csr326 (talkcontribs) 15:01, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Draft:Arthur Irawan[edit]

Please see Draft talk:Arthur Irawan. The article should link to a website that shows he has taken the field for a fully professional team. Until then, we should go by the verdict of the last AfD, from September 2012. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 04:41, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
