COI declaration & maintained by templates[edit]

Hello, Teri, see WP:COIDEC for a COI declaration. If you will do so on your userpage, all will be hunky-dory. In the meantime I've posted a {{Connected contributor}} template to the PML talk page. When you do your COIDEC, we change the template to say "declared=yes". If you are going to be watching the PLM page, you might also add a {{Maintained}} template to the talk page. I'm available for any assistance you desire. – S. Rich (talk) 17:07, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

I was pleased with your responses to the recent changes I made to the Cadet Nurse Corps article. Thank you! The article needs serious work to bring it up to the standard it deserves. But for now, just making it read a little better will have to do. Pendright (talk) 23:39, 9 November 2013 (UTC)


Hi Teri-- I've been working on a draft for Jason Healey, which I've linked to in the header here. Take a look when you get a chance. Are there some materials the library may have access to so that I can further elaborate on his background? Thanks, I, JethroBT drop me a line 21:46, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

File:William P. Levine.jpg[edit]

Hey Teri. The image of Levine needs some more information-- it's up for deletion here on Commons. I agree that it appears to be an official government photo, but there isn't any information on the photo itself to suggest that. I can't find the image anywhere else on the Internet. Was the photo was scanned in from a military publication? I, JethroBT drop me a line 17:17, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

PMML scanned the print donated by the family when his papers were scanned. For more items from his collection, see: TeriEmbrey (talk) 17:20, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Is there any photographic information on the image itself? Like when/where it was taken, a photo #, or otherwise? I, JethroBT drop me a line 17:27, 28 May 2014 (UTC)


I've left a message on the talk page; can you check it and tell me if there's anything I can do to make it clearer for new editors? Adam Cuerden (talk) 17:23, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

I've updated to make it clear that they're great for articles, but bigger is better, and why. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Henry Burr[edit]

I'm perplexed. Can you tell me what relation Henry Burr has with the Pritzker Military Museum & Library WikiProject? He lived in Chicago, but he had no military history so far as I can tell, and a search on the Museum & Library site does not show anything for him. Verne Equinox (talk) 01:31, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

We are in the process of cataloging and scanning our collection of WWI and WWII music scores. Henry Burr performed a number of songs during WWI, like ''Just a baby's prayer at twilight: for her daddy over there'' which was composed with lyrics by M K Jerome, Sam M Lewis, and Joe Young and Joan of Arc (Henry Burr song). We will be adding song articles to Wikipedia for those that charted. See WP:GLAM/Pritzker for the lists of articles on which we are working. TeriEmbrey (talk) 13:50, 22 August 2014 (UTC).
Thanks for that info. I look forward to the results of your work! And thank you for sharing! Verne Equinox (talk) 00:32, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
There is a glaring omission in the Burr article for the wartime period. Your work should help to fill that gap. Verne Equinox (talk) 00:35, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Linking to Templates[edit]

Hey Teri! I noticed you were trying to link to the DYK discussions over at the MILHIST talkpage. DYK nominations are a type of template, and generally, when you use curly brackets ({{ }}), it literally pastes the entire contents of that page, as you noticed with the DYK nomination. I've made this same mistake before with other templates, so it's not a big deal. To get a link, you just need to replace those curly brackets with square brackets, and use the "Template:" designation for the page:

Template:Did you know nominations/Abraham Lincoln, what would you do?

And now, I'm going to finish up addressing the issues for the John Robinson DYK nomination. I, JethroBT drop me a line 02:15, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. I knew I was missing something obvious. TeriEmbrey (talk) 13:05, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Belated thanks for your help here. My mother adds her thanks; Joseph was her father, but we had very little on his service. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:17, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Reliable source[edit]

In this edit to Arnie Bernstein, you removed the {{rs}} tag from the University of Michigan Press citation. As the book's publisher, can we consider this a reliable source? Even though they are a university press, they are still in the business of promoting and selling books, so I don't believe their own ad page for Bernstein's book can be considered a reliable source. The fact in question is the recognition as a "2010 Michigan Notable Book". Without any independent source to confirm this, we have no idea how notable an achievement this is. Perhaps it is a designation applied by the UM Press itself to indicate books it feels are of special significance, and is not an external award at all.

Actually, the Library of Michigan decides which books are notable. See:,2351,7-160-54574_39583-227528--,00.html I'll fix the reference. I'm working with a few new editors. Being new, it's slow going. TeriEmbrey (talk) 20:03, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
OK. Seeing as you seem to have them under your wing, I'll leave it your hands for now and keep my nose out. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:07, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

New Reflinks tool[edit]

Hey Teri-- looks like there is a new and reliable Reflinks tool developed by User:Zhaofeng Li that you and the volunteers can use. I've tested it out in a few places and it seems to work quite well, and even has a few customization options that weren't previously available. To add it in, go to Special:MyPage/common.js and add in the following text:

{{subst:iusc|User:Zhaofeng Li/Reflinks.js}}

I'll post these instructions at our project talk page for future reference. I, JethroBT drop me a line 23:28, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
