Anita Blake[edit]

Silverthorn, if it's not too late, you may want to create the Anita Blake page at Anita Blake (just get rid of the redirect) instead of at Anita Blake (fictional character). Thanks, TheronJ 16:42, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Servant of the Bones[edit]

Thanks for the feedback on Servant of the Bones, Silverthorn! I appreciate it. :) I do intend to flesh out the characters and themes a bit -- just ran out of cybertime! I struggle with the genre. It's always hard for me to fit a book into any one genre and this is an especially tough one. As you say, it's not typical historical fiction. But it's not really horror, is it? I mean it's got its yuckky moments when he's being made into a genie but for the most part it's a memoir. Anyway, thanks a bunch! Estreya 14:44, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome. I agree that categorising novels into genres can be hard. Sometimes the simplest solution is to put them in more than one. Silverthorn 15:03, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Azathoth[edit]

Whilst I appreciate what you might be trying to do with this article I think lifting huge chunks of text from other places is not what WikiPedia is all about. By all means source and reference ideas from other places, but the text need to be original (if not the ideas). :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 16:27, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Some of the the material you added to Midnight Children's is a direct copy and paste of the text from SparkNotes. Even though you attribute your material as coming from there, you can not use the text from a copyrighted site in Wikipedia. (WP:Copyright). You have entered a good deal of other text in the article that appears to be from similar sources, though I have not yet tracked down just where. Remove it.

Please read the policy on copyright as listed above, and the explanation there. If you do not understand anything the policy, please feel free to ask me questions about it here, or ask on the talk page there.

Then, remove any text you have inserted in a similar manner into other articles. You cannot insert copied or even paraphrased text. You must rewrite it yourself from scratch relying on the knowledge of the subject you have gained from reading the sources, referring of course to the sources to confirm the details. You must use your own words, unless you are using a source that says explicitly that it is public domain, of freely licensed under a GFDL license. Web sites in general do not fall into this class. Even blog posts are the copyright of the site, or the author. Certainly material posted by commercial sources is, text as well as photographs.

I would like confirmation that you understand this policy; I will look here for it tomorrow. I do not think you had any deliberate attempt to violate out policies, but you can and will be banned from Wikipedia if you continue this after being notified. Some other administrators would have banned you immediately. I instead rely on you to remove the material you copied into Wikipedia. DGG (talk) 08:54, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

I apologise for my error. The situation will be corrected. Silverthorn 16:11, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Adam Bede[edit]

On March 2, 2007 you added a long section to Adam Bede copied directly from Gradesaver It has been removed.

I am not sure you fully understood my message. Please go back to ALL of your earlier contributions and check that the material you added was original. remove any that is not. If any remains, you will be blocked. This is absolutely impermissible in Wikipedia. If you had not realized before, you surely must realize it now. DGG (talk) 03:52, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

I did understand your previous message, however I would point out that this second warning is about material that was added several months ago prior to the warning. It is not a defiant or ignorant attempt to ignore what you said. It is an example of a mistake that was repeated prior to being informed it was a mistake. I am checking the articles I have contributed to to ensure that there are no further occurrences. I have, however, contributed to more than one and - whilst this error will not have been made in each one - I do in all good conscience need to check them all. That takes time. If you are not willing to permit me that time, then so be it. I cannot prevent you from blocking me. All I can say is that I am doing my best. Silverthorn 09:45, 10 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not going to block you if you're working on it, but this material cannot be allowed to remain. If I could check and remove one a day, while doing everything else, so can you. DGG (talk) 01:58, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Request help with article Ancient Egypt[edit]

As you are listed as a member of Wikiproject:AncientEgypt, I'd like to recruit your help in reviewing the article Ancient Egypt. The article is listed as top priority in the Wikiproject and as a vital article by the Version 1.0 Editorial Team, but appears to have failed to meet Good Article criteria at its last nomination. The article is in need of some serious attention.

In the past week, I asked for (and got) the article to be semi-protected to protect against the constant barrage of vandalism. This protection lasts for two weeks. I also did a little clean-up, added a map and so on. I would like to see everyone in Wikiproject:AncientEgypt have the chance to add their input to Ancient Egypt, and get the article up to featured status as soon as possible. I believe the article is at least 80% of the way there, and some focused attention will bring it the rest of the way.

The most pressing concerns seem to be the culture/architecture section, and the achievements/unsolved problems sections. Also, the entire article, especially the achievements section, the sources, and external links need to be seriously checked for accuracy. These sections also require a little organization too.

Ancient Egypt ought to be the top priority of Wikiproject:AncientEgypt, and I look forward to working with everyone to get this article cleaned up and hopefully promoted to featured status. Thanks for your help, Jeff Dahl 03:27, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Hi Silverthorn!

I have put together a survey for female editors of Wikipedia (and related projects) in order to explore, in greater detail, women's experiences and roles within the Wikimedia movement. It'd be wonderful if you could participate!

It is in English, but any language Wikimedia participants are encouraged to participate. I appreciate your contributions - to the survey and to Wikipedia! Thank you!
