I no longer accept requests to carry out copy edits, though I may make very rare exceptions for classical music, sacred music and music theory articles that interest me. For topics other than these, I recommend using the Guild of Copy Editors Requests page.

Margaritis Kastellis[edit]

Thank you very much for your message. The composer was my uncle and it is out of a sense of duty to his memory that I drafted the article with what detail was available. I drafted and submitted the same article in French as well. Now, I do not have any death certificate of his but I know for sure that the year of his death was 1979 (November), when I was in Africa and that news reached me there quite late. You can understand that I feel very uneasy with the prospect of this article being deleted. Iwould very much appreciate if you could tell me what I can do for it to remain there. Unfortunately I do not have any written sources other than the thesis mentioned in my article. The scores I drew the list on were left to me and it was I who took care of submitting them to the Thessaloniki University, so they may be available to anyone wishing to study them. I, personally, am retired and live in Belgium (Brussels)and very fond of music.

@Ckpqt: Hello there. First, please don't worry about the article being deleted. The deletion discussion has been closed, and the decision was to keep it. You don't need to do anything else about that. Now, about the date of death, the problem is that both the sources we have list it as 1972, and both seem to be reliable sources. Some things you might try: can you find an obituary in a newspaper or magazine? Or can you contact the people at the Ioannina web site and ask them for their sources for this date? Or can you contact other members of the family to find out if they know of suitable documentation?
Whatever you do, please don't change the date again until you have proper sources for it. And please would you read our guideline Wikipedia:Conflict of interest and understand the risks of writing about your relatives on Wikipedia. Please especially note the section on "Advice for editors who may have a conflict of interest" there. Rather than adding or changing things directly to the article, you can also make requests on its talk page. There you can explain that you are related to Margaritis and that you want a change made, and ask for it to be made by a neutral editor. Then someone will check it and make the change for you. Kind regards, --Stfg (talk) 14:42, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

careful reading
Thank you for quality copy-editing, reading carefully, unafraid of long articles, tireless, and for using the phase "enjoyment in Wikipedia" in 2013 (found a typo), - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Two years ago, you were the 455th recipient of my PumpkinSky Prize, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:23, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, Gerda. (I hadn't noticed that typo before :)) --Stfg (talk) 10:06, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
What do you notice in BWV 165 (FAC)? I noticed only yesterday that Bach wrote yet another cantata for Trinity, which needs to be incorporated, - always learning, - this one was not created by me, and you see it at a glance ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:36, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
