Veritas[edit]

I don't understand what you're trying to do with the external links in Veritas. What's the point of having two links to the same page? —KCinDC (talk) 17:33, 20 October 2008 (UTC) Sorry, the second link is to another page (I already made the correction) (Ontoraul (talk) 20:42, 20 October 2008 (UTC))

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Ontoraul! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot notifying you on behalf of the the unreferenced biographies team that 1 of the articles that you created is currently tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person. The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring this article up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,450 article backlog. Once the article is adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the article:

Ptolemy link[edit]

I wonder if you know for sure (or might be able to figure out) whether what is said of Ptolemy Chennus at On Youth, Old Age, Life and Death, and Respiration ought to be said, instead, of Ptolemy-el-Garib. By naming Chennus, the article duly reports what the reference (King, pp. 38-40) says, but that doesn't mean it's right, and we may need a new reference to the text of Ptolemy-el-Garib himself, if that's what is intended. I'm hopeful from your recent edits that you may be able to provide such a reference. Best regards, Wareh (talk) 00:45, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Hobbes bibliography[edit]

Hello, Ontoraul. You're doing great work on Thomas Hobbes! I was just wondering if you could clarify the arrangement of works at the end of the article. How's "Primary sources", all of them by Hobbes, a different category from "Works", also all by Hobbes? Perhaps "Bibliography" should be the main section, with primary and secondary works as subsections? I ask these things with some hesitation, since you obviously know a lot more of the subject than I do. I'm emboldened by the fact the the note section — the {{Reflist|2}} template — definitely shouldn't be in between the book lists. By the Wikipedia house style, it should come after the "See also".[1] I thought of moving it, but I hesitate to interfere with these sections in any way while you're working on the bibliography. (I did "unprotect" the article, as you can see in the history, but that hopefully won't impact your work. It simply means that IP's can again — experimentally — edit the article. If that leads to vandalism, I'll re-protect.) Regards, Bishonen | talk 09:14, 15 September 2013 (UTC).

Dear Bishonen,
Many thanks for your appreciation of my job.
Your observations on the section "primary sources" and "works" are absolutely correct: the sections existed before I initiate my corrections and I esitate to modify them (I am not much expert on Wikipedia).
I think that if you made the changes the article will be surely more readable.
Many thanks again.
Raul Corazzon (talk) 10:55, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Sure, I'll rearrange the sections. [Pause.] Done, but it wasn't as simple as I thought, no… I soon realized the chronological list of Hobbes' works needed its own section, ahead of the bibliography. And I've conflated the Molesworth entries. I hope you'll take a look and fix anything I've misunderstood or mishandled. You can retrieve your own last version of the article here, in case you need to restore stuff from it. But please just let me know if I've created any problems that I can and should fix myself. (It's really neat to have the two in-progress complete works and everything. This must be one of the most up-to-date and complete bibliographies we have in an article, congratulations!) Bishonen | talk 13:56, 15 September 2013 (UTC).

You made an excellent job! I added a section of translations in modern English that should be completed (I live in Italy and obviously use mainly Italian translations); the list of studies on Hobbes should also be improved. I am always happy when I find intelligent users: Wikipedia is a great resource for students! --Raul Corazzon (talk) 15:08, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com.
