Mentorship[edit]

Hello, Missionedit! I saw your name in the Adopters' area, and I was wondering if you were still available for mentorship? I'd love to contribute to Wikipedia, but I'd first like to learn the basics and have someone to watch over my shoulder as I make my first few major contributions... Thanks, --Spyder212 (talk) 16:33, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Spyder212! I am so sorry to tell you that I cannot take on any more adoptees as of right now. My schedule completely is swamped. I know the adopter's page says I am available; unfortunately, there is some kind of bug in the software that keeps changing my status from "Not currently accepting adoptees" to "Currently accepting adoptees" no matter how many times I change it back :P Again, I would love to adopt you, but I just don't have enough time on my hands right now. So sorry for the inconvenience. Feel free to ask me for help any time you need it, though :) Good luck finding an adopter! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 16:53, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Souk Okaz[edit]

So, you unreviewed Souk Okaz, and then a minute later you marked it as reviewed again. In between, you left this rather cryptic and unhelpful note on my talk page. Why? ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 22:10, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

ONUnicorn, I'm so sorry! There must have been a glitch in how I used the tool; the message was sent automatically. I only intended to review the article; it is up to Wikipedia's basic standards as far as I can see. My apologies again in causing you any inconvenience. Thanks for contributing to Wikipedia! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 23:26, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks for responding. Stuff happens I guess. :) ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 23:40, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

need help, very confused, first post[edit]

My fatherOtto Kuhni is a notable Illustrator He is 88 and ill I am trying to do something special for him and get him listed on wiki Many of his friends are listed people have the opinion that i am posting a resume That is silly I was listing his accomplishments: The original and only Hot Wheels illustrator til late 1980's when it went computerized Die Cast Hall of fame 2012 To honor him Mattel named a Hot Wheel "the Custom Otto" only one other person has received that honor. All my info posted came from sites online and was not biased or personal No different than "Peter Max" wiki (friend of my fathers) Why is it a resume if its my Dad but ok if its peter max? Please help

Alkuhni/sandbox/Otto Johnson Kuhni

Alkuhni (talk) 15:55, 12 May 2015 (UTC)alkuhniAlkuhni (talk) 15:55, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello Alkuhni, and welcome to Wikipedia! I can't read what you had written because it was deleted, but I can try to guess what the problem is. Peter Max is not a resume, but an article. It has a lead section, body paragraphs about his life and work in the middle, and reliable references at the end. The difference between an article and a resume is the presentation. Resumes present the information about a person in a favorable light, listing their accomplishments in promotional manner and exist only to summarize a person's life employment and education. Also, resumes cite almost no reliable sources. On the other hand, a Wikipedia biography article briefly covers all important areas and time periods in a person's life, cites reliable, independent sources, and contains no promotional tones (if possible). Again, I can't see your work, so I have no way of knowing exactly what was wrong, but be assured that the editors who reviewed your draft knew what they were doing. In the first place, Wikipedia extremely discourages editors from writing or contributing to articles about themselves or people close to them. See Wikipedia:COI and Wikipedia:Autobiography for more info on this. I hope this helps! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 00:14, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

creation of Wikipedia Page for a Pastor[edit]

Good Morning MissionEdit!

Thank you for taking my question! I have attempted to create a page for a client of ours who happens to be a pastor. The first article was deleted due to it being taken directly from his bio.

I took a second attempt to creating the article from scratch and "telling his story" and that also was deleted. This time, it is saying that it is deleted due to "promotion". I know for a fact, I did not write anything related to promoting the Pastor.

We tried our best to mimic the pages of some other Pastors we saw here on Wikipedia.

Any direction you could provide would be great.

Thanks!

TMarie Media (talk) 15:08, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, TMarie Media! The first thing you must do to create a Wikipedia article is find some reliable sources to back it up, especially a article about a living person. Citing these sources in the article will definitely help it pass review. From what I saw before your article was deleted, the wording of your writing did sound a bit promotional. Although this was probably unintentional, it is very hard to write about someone you know from a subjective point of view. Completely promotional articles have no place on Wikipedia. For more information on writing articles about your own clients, I would suggest you read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest. Good luck, and happy editing! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 04:22, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Request on 16:24:19, 15 May 2015 for assistance on AfC submission by Claire Morgan1[edit]


Please reconsider in not deleting the page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Manners All sources can be confirmed by typing in on google "Paul Manners". Recently on Tuesday 5th May 2015 Peter Andre has confirmed his support in New! Magazine under his own column. All sources are below from newspaper articles:- [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10]

Claire Morgan 1 16:24, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

@Claire Morgan1: Sorry, what exactly are you asking? I'm confused. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 04:12, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

I was asking why did you originally place a deletion on the article Paul Manners when he is well-known and had reliable sources? Did you not think of checking the sources beforehand that they were from newspapers and television? Kindest regards.

@Claire Morgan1: I'm sorry, Claire; I think you misunderstood what I did :) I did not mark the article for deletion; rather, I tagged it with the {{linkrot}} template to notify cleanup editors that the bare urls in the references were not formatted properly. This tag alerted another editor to fix the problem and, as a result, remove the tag. This in no way whatsoever has anything to do with the notability or deletion of the article. Sorry if I confused you! I would suggest you read Wikipedia:Template messages to learn more about such tags and templates. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 20:31, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Awards[edit]

Hello, my name is Luis and i've been using and editing Wikipedia for some time, but i only recently created a Wikipedia account. They say the rewards have requirements, does that mean that after the requirements are met, an award for that certain thing is automatically added to my profile? Thanks so much for any help you can provide! :D --Luis Santos24 (talk) 20:14, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

@Luis Santos24: Hi Luis! It depends on what award you are talking about. Do you have any specific kind of award in mind? ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 00:21, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Hey, me again! Thanks for responding so quickly! Incremental Service Ribbons and Editor awards were my focus. Thanks! --Luis Santos24 (talk) 00:30, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@Luis Santos24: Such awards are self-awarded; in other words, if you want the award/ribbon on your user page, you have to put it there yourself once you've met the requirements. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 00:38, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Hey, Thanks for the help Missionedit ! But how do i add them by myself? I tried to read it myself but i found it a bit confusing. --Luis Santos24 (talk) 01:12, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@Luis Santos24: Next to the award you've earned at Wikipedia:Service awards, there should be text enclosed in curly brackets (e.g. {{Registered Editor}}). Copy-paste this text onto your user page and then save the page. Thanks for the kitten :) Just so you know, how to respond properly to this message, you should click the "edit" button next to the "Awards" heading above this. The "New Section" button at the top of the page is really only there to leave me a new set of messages (not a response). ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 04:03, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Adoption enquiry[edit]

Hi, I would like to be adopted but you stated that you are not receiving any more adoptees. So may I ask around when would you be open to adoptees? Thanks, Marcus1093 (talk) 04:04, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Marcus1093! Yes, I am not currently accepting new adoptees because the five active ones I have already are quite a handful :) However, my real-life schedule is winding down now and I will probably be able to accept one more by sometime next month. I also share a passion for copy editing on Wikipedia like you, as did my adopter before me. So, I'm willing to adopt you, but not immediately. I can tell you when I have time to begin lessons, if you are willing to wait (?) ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 20:26, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
Ok then, I am willing to wait. Looking forward to be your adoptee! Marcus1093 (talk) 22:00, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Adoption[edit]

Hey, sorry to bother you again.

I deal with Military and Naval stuff, would you know any reccomended people that can adopt me?

Thanks! --Luis Santos24 (talk) 20:52, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

@Luis Santos24: No problem! You might want to try asking User:SantiLak or User:Howicus. Good luck! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 21:00, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
How does it work Missionedit? All these new features and stuff confuse me sorry. Yours Truly, --Luis Santos24 (talk) 21:07, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@Luis Santos24: The Wikipedia:Adopt-a-user program is designed to help new editors learn how to edit from more experienced editors. Depending on who you have as a mentor, adoption usually merits lessons of some type, assignments, and maybe some tests. The whole time your mentor will keep an eye on your progress and activity on Wikipedia, being available to offer advice and answer your questions. Adoption usually lasts over three months, on and off. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 21:17, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Ismah[edit]

May I ask you to help us to make this article FA, by copy editing the article. Thanks.Salman mahdi (talk) 04:14, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Salman mahdi, in order for an article to be promoted to FA status, it must first become a WP:Good article. I'm rather busy right now to copy edit such a long article; perhaps you should put in a copy edit request at Wikipedia:WikiProject Guild of Copy Editors/Requests. The request will ensure that someone from the Guild will come along eventually to copy edit the article. Thanks! ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 17:40, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Greetings Anastasia, many thanks for the welcome and the badge. Editing coming along OK, but Im struggling a bit with talk page.Getting easier though. Bye, Michael Honumike (talk) 07:38, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

@Honumike: You are very welcome :) Again, if you need any help, don't hesitate to ask. ~ Anastasia [Missionedit] (talk) 18:22, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
