prevention of violence
Thank you for articles on thinking women like Mavis Maclean and men like Ian Bruce, for adding references and infoboxes, for EGM: prevention of violence against women and girls, for saying "give peace a chance", - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Thank you for your explanation on the composer's talk. Did you know that you entered a minefield? (War since 2005) Did you notice that discussion is also here, fair enough? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:16, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I didn't notice that discussion, thanks for the link. I've now added my thoughts there too. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 14:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
"infobox + composer = extremely touchy subject which requires discussion" - a mild description for the Bach discussion (I knew it required discussion) which would be almost humorous in retrospect if it hadn't cost Wikipedia an excellent editor, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:40, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Palimpsest (journal)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Palimpsest (journal) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable new journal. Not indexed in any selective databases, no independent sources. Does not meet WP:NJournals or WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Linking an image[edit]

You made some excellent points at the inexecrable Merkin POTD discussion, and File:Mary Beth Peil 2011 (cropped).jpg would be wonderful on the main page. In case you weren't aware, it is possible to link to an image by putting a colon before the "File", just as putting a colon before "Category" makes a link to the category rather than putting the current page in the category (example Category:American film actresses). I'm posting this in case you wanted to edit your comment to make a link. Johnuniq (talk) 09:53, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited June 20, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Andrew Graham and Gordon Marshall (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.

Happened across your user page via AN/I. Loving your work, keep at it. — Scott talk 12:40, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

You said: "Mark Miller, participation rates for women are unlikely to improve unless we roll our sleeves up and get stuck in." I cannot agree with you more. Editor retention tried to look into the situation but the research seemed to fall off. Oddly enough, just before your ANI posting I discovered a new project that Tparis had begun, Wikipedia:WikiProject Countering systemic bias/Gender bias task force. The number of female editors is very low and the if I understand your post at ANI correctly, that blog article was part of that Men's rights movement. I guess that was what Baseball Bugs was trying to say. I agree with Scott above. keep up the good work and I am now watch listing you user page. Feel free to drop me off a message if you ever need assistance.--Mark Miller (talk) 17:17, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
