Fannie Lou Hamer article[edit]

Hello. You reverted out an edit I made, simply adding material to an already existent statement in the Fannie Lou Hamer article. The honorary induction into the sorority was already in the article before I touched it. --- Wikiklrsc (talk) 18:57, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Yes, and thank you for adding the 'Death' section and moving the honorary induction to the appropriate section. I edited the awards section, wikifying an award and the sorority. I also removed the fact about the sorority foundation date; that fact is extraneous to the article, and can now be found by clicking on the link. I believe the 'Honors and awards' section lacks high quality sources; it'd be great if you could help find better sources to cite for the awards. Also, I just looked a the 'Columbia College' wiki-link in the section, it is ambiguous, so that needs correction also. The 'Legacy' section needs a lot of work. The 'Death' section could also use a sentence or two about her burial site. Hope we can work together on this article. - Neonorange (talk) 20:18, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind reply. It looks better. Thanks. I'll do what I can on the article. Best. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc (talk) 04:32, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the extremely quick work! The book you cited (from google books) looks interesting; I'll try to get access. - Neonorange (talk) 23:43, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
My pleasure. I found the book to be extremely interesting -- in her own words throughout. --- (Bob) Wikiklrsc (talk) 04:48, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

LZ 129 Hindenburg citation[edit]

Hello Neonorange.

Why did you remove the needed citation on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LZ_129_Hindenburg? RADOFINS and ECNALI (talk) 20:04, 13 August 2014 (UTC) Please reply — Preceding unsigned comment added by RADOFINS and ECNALI (talkcontribs) 21:58, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I removed your edit for two reasons (as given in the edit summary.
  • The citation was placed as a bare URL in the article text and was visible to a user. Templates are available for proper citation form that show a bracketed number in the article text, with the citation information in the 'References' section. For a newspaper citation, more than the URL is necessary; publisher, work, author, story title, date published, and date retrieved are also needed. I notice you have made an improvement so that the bare URL is no longer visible, but the additional information is necessary.
  • The source you use seems problematic; the column is in the form of what, I suppose, are meant to be answers to reader questions. The Hindenburg question does not seem to be serious "Question: Why did the Germans have the daffy idea of filling the Hindenburg with highly flammable hydrogen instead of much safer helium?". This is followed by "Question: Why do we get pimples and why do dermatologists insist we shouldn't pop them?"
Wikipedia has a suggested process: Boldly make an edit; the edit is Reverted; Discuss the information on the article talk page. I suggest you self-revert your change. If you wish to improve the article by inserting a high quality cite, I can make some suggestions for you, or I can place one myself. The question is more complex than the source you found would suggest. I intended to place such a cite myself, but thought it best to remove the user visible bare URL as quickly as possible.

Your experience on Wikipedia so far[edit]

Hello Neonorange,

My name is Gabriel Mugar and I am conducting interviews for my dissertation research about newcomers to Wikipedia. Since you have been around Wikipedia for a few months, I would like to chat with you about your experience so far. The interview will last for about 1 hour and I will compensate your time with a $10 gift certificate to either the Wikipedia store or Amazon, your choice. If you are interested in knowing more about the interview, please email me at gmugar [at] syr.edu or leave a message on my talk page

Thanks,

Gabrielm199 (talk) 18:42, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Selma (film), you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Bloody Sunday and Montgomery. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Fixed

Ping, decapitalization attempt on all the Civil Rights Movement articles[edit]

This is a ping because you've been involved in editing the popular culture page. There is a major attempt at Talk:African-American Civil Rights Movement (1954–68), at the bottom of the page, to uncapitalize the name to 'African American civil rights movement' on five pages. Please come by and have a look, thanks. Randy Kryn 17:38 27 December, 2014 (UTC)

There is some particular material I'd like to re-read before commenting on the issue, Until then, or in two days, which ever comes first, I want to hold off. Until then,
  • the number of times either form is used—it is not a vote—it is how knowlingly the descriptive phrase is used
  • when the phrase was used—was it used in the domain of the journalist, or the historian
  • the use of capitalization is not mechanical—it encodes meaning—and should not be invoked—one way or another—without thorough discussion

Thanks for the ping—it's an interesting question. — Neonorange (talk) 06:08, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Intelligence: Culture part[edit]

The part i deleted is a new added part, the citations are not right, and the text is totally nonsense.. Try reading it. I did not delete it to be a sockpuppet.ParanoidLemmings (talk) 10:55, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

We are all sockpuppets, in the bigger scheme of things. Sayeth the scriptures and the philosophers. Sorry, couldn;t resist. Randy Kryn 13:44 30 December, 2014 (UTC)
@ParanoidLemming: the form of the inline citations in the section you've removed twice is acceptable for use in Wikipedia. However, the rest of information must be listed in the reference, once for each work. And whatever style citation used in starting and article should be continued.
I've seen the source material before, I think calling it 'totally nonsense' is harsh and untrue.
Finally, 'sockpuppet', 'sock' for short, is used in Wikipedia to mean an against-the-rules account operated by a user to, for example, post either !votes or 'straw man' arguments, or personal attacks, or hoaxes. The operator of such accounts is known as a 'puppetmaster'. I'm sure you're neither one. — Neonorange (talk) 05:23, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

You well I just recommending reading through the part i deleted.. The content just dont seem to be related to Intelligence. It even talk about herbal medicine lol. But anyway should i reverse my delete and start a debate on the discussio page?ParanoidLemmings (talk) 09:38, 31 December 2014 (UTC)
