Hi Nina, The blog seems like its probably not very reliable. I base this solely on the indicia of bad grammar, bad writing and vitriolic tone. On the other hand, the writer of the blog purports to be a faculty member I think. I went to hUnter HS, but the only things I know about Raab are from published sources, not personal experience. I do give weight to the opinion of those who are more involved in a topic than I. It does seem like bad editing to remove the official Hunter bio and include this blog, so generally I would support the reversing of those things.

Leslie Cornfeld[edit]

Renewed apologies for inactivity. I have now commented at WP:BLPN#Leslie Cornfeld. I am hoping that someone experienced will expand the article a bit, based on your references. Reports of Ms Cornfeld speaking or being involved in some activity help with the WP:Verifiability requirement to document her career, but not with WP:Notability which looks for extended comment about her by someone else. If someone else expands the article, I may find it convincing enough to reverse my decision as closing administrator of WP:Articles for deletion/Leslie Cornfeld, but more likely I would seek the community's view by listing it at WP:Deletion review which is the place where deletions are reviewed and sometimes undone. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 16:32, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Update: your talk page draft looks good. I am sorry that nobody from the BLP Noticeboard came to help; the thing about an all-volunteer project like this is that nobody has to do anything that does not interest them. I was very unwilling to mix the administrative and article-writing roles, so I am glad that you have done this.
I have moved it to the actual draft page (with a credit to you in the edit summary). Tomorrow I will look at again and maybe trim it a little, and then I will post an entry at WP:Deletion review saying (as the deleting administrator from the AfD discussion) that I think this version overcomes the problems and should be reinstated, and see whether the community agrees.
Two minor points: can you give a date of birth? Year will be enough. Also, I am not sure what categories to give the article. I have found Category:American prosecutors which seems relevant. Would one of these apply?

Hi, JohnCD (talk · contribs) - I cannot find a date of birth or even a year.
As for categories, I think Category:American prosecutors makes sense. Here are some others to consider:
Thanks for all your help. NinaSpezz (talk) 02:11, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
See Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2014 February 22. I don't think you need to comment there, but of course you may if you wish; if you do, although I have explained your openly-declared COI, you should declare it again for absolute openness. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 23:24, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi, JohnCD (talk · contribs). I see three editors left comments on Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2014 February 22 and another left a comment to Draft_talk:Leslie_Cornfeld. When reviewing the draft article, I realized I left an extraneous period between references #6 and #7 in the body of the article. If you decide to restore the page, would you mind removing the typo before making it live? Thanks! NinaSpezz (talk) 14:56, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
I have removed the surplus period. For something obviously uncontroversial like that, there would be no problem if you did it yourself. DRVs normally last for at least seven days, and then get closed when an uninvolved admin gets round to it, so I expect this will be closed within two or three days. I have asked the user who left a comment on the draft talk page if he would say the same thing at the DRV, just to make sure, but I don't think there will be a problem. I was pleased with the comment which patted us both on the back for having done everything right! JohnCD (talk) 23:06, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
JohnCD (talk · contribs) - I was also pleased with the comment. Great team work! Thanks! NinaSpezz (talk) 14:27, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 15[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Peter Gelb, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Peabody (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
