Help Project newsletter : Issue 6[edit]

The Help Project Newsletter

Issue VI - April 2013

Open Help Conference

The Open Help Conference will be taking place June 15-19 in Cincinnati Ohio, USA. The conference includes two days of presentations and open discussions, followed by team "sprints" - collaborative efforts to write and improve documentation.

It has been suggested to send a team from Wikipedia/Wikimedia: to share our own knowledge about help, learn from others in the open source community working on similar problems, and to carry out a sprint to improve some aspect of Wikipedia's help.

There may be support available for volunteers to attend from the Participation Support program (and your editor is certainly hoping to be there!) Please join the discussion in Meta's IdeaLab if you're interested, and/or have suggestions about what we could work on.

Other news

If you don't wish to receive this newsletter on your talk page in future then just edit the participants page and add "no newsletter" next to your name.

Suggestions for future issues are welcome at Wikipedia:Help Project/Newsletter.

Chuck Pierce proposed deletion[edit]

Thanks for the heads-up. Although Chuck Pierce is almost certainly qualified under notability, I agree that the article doesn't reflect this. I'm not going to have a lot of time to edit in the next month, but will work on improving the article as I have time. Thanks again. Waitak (talk)

The Signpost: 16 July 2014[edit]

Thomas P. Griesa[edit]

Ok, I got the warning. But what about the defamation against my country that was in the previous edition of the entry? Did you warn that editor too?!?! That edition, besides defamatory, has no links, no info, only a complete bias article against Argentina and pro-vulture funds. This well known 'Case of the Century' is something very important, a bomb that could make implode the whole financial system to ashes, and the Griesa entry didn't reflect that. In fact, it looks like it reflects the vision of the vulture funds, like all the U.S. media. France, Brazil, the I.M.F., the World Bank, the United Nations, Mexico, Economy Nobel Prizes, magazines and specialists like the Financial Times, New York Times, and The Economist, China, Russia, Africa, everyone is on the Argentina' side, but judge Griesa, its Wikipedia entry, and the vulture funds DON'T. Please, give me an advise, what should I do as an editor?? Let the biased entry?— Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.48.126.52 (talkcontribs)

All of the unreferenced and irrelevant stuff has been removed from the article. This has nothing to do with bias or any other perceived slight, it is a matter of complying with our BLP policy, plain and simple. If you have a problem with the content of an article, you discuss it on the talk page.--ukexpat (talk) 00:16, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

criticism[edit]

Hello, it was not the criticism of AIRCA that I wanted to be removed - we are all fine with being criticized. But the sentence that CGIAR (what some perceive as our competitors, but they are in fact not) are doing only research is simply not true. Many thanks, Marita — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marita Dieling (talkcontribs) 13:59, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Be that as it may, the criticism is sourced and you, an editor with a COI, should not be removing it.--ukexpat (talk) 14:02, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Is The New York Times a reliable source of information to you?[edit]

Excuse me Mr. Ukexpat, do you consider The New York Times as an "unsourced", or maybe a "violation of a living person Wikipedia entry" or a "defamatory" source of information? Or can I use it to edit the biography of Mr. Thomas Griesa, please? Would you let me?.. I'll be waiting for your answer. THANK YOU!: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/business/rulings-add-to-the-mess-in-argentine-bonds.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0 — Preceding unsigned comment added by HeroPsycho22 (talkcontribs) 00:45, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

It's a reliable source for his rulings and no more. It is certainly not a source which you can use to infer anything about his competence or motivations etc. And there is no need for the sarcastic tone - please assume good faith in your dealings with other users..--ukexpat (talk) 01:15, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Please, I need your answer..[edit]

I need to know if I can use The New York Times as a source of information about the rare, unusual, and strange way of work of judge Thomas Griesa, that "hardly inspired confidence in the American legal system" (according to the most important financial journalist of the United States: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/25/business/rulings-add-to-the-mess-in-argentine-bonds.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0). I need your answer, I don't want to be blocked. I'll be waiting for your answer. THANK YOU!!

See above.--ukexpat (talk) 00:24, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
