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)

Rhoda Holmes Nicholls[edit]

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in the Rhoda Holmes Nicholls article. I rolled back the edits because:

  1. Encyclopedia Britannica is a Wikipedia:Tertiary source and should be avoided if there are good secondary sources. See RSN Archive 115 - Is Encyclopedia a reliable source?
  2. The guideline for dashes is to not to put spaces before and after the dash Wikipedia:Dashes.
  3. "She met with" might be a difference in American vs. British English. It's common in the states - but I wouldn't have rolled back that comment alone.
  4. ", like" is also appropriate. "Such as" was interjected without the comma - so this is another example where the change from like to such as would not have resulted in a roll back, except that the comma was removed
  5. I see you added [[American Watercolor Society|American Water Color Society]], which I had at one time, too, but the piped name was removed. It's not wrong either way.

I did return the edit Rhoda Holmes Nicholls-->Nicholls.

I hope that makes sense,but feel free to respond here or on my talk page if you have any questions.--CaroleHenson (talk) 17:16, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Whatever, just trying to be helpful - in fact some of those weren't even my original edits, but were caught up in an edit conflict.--ukexpat (talk) 18:31, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Yep, I later saw that it was another user that originally posted the Encyclopedia Britannica and posted a comment on their user page, too.
Of course your were trying to be helpful and it's appreciated. Thinking of how you might feel to have your edits reverted without an explanation, I just wanted to explain my reasoning... and (not being the bearer of all wisdom (laughing at my seriousness sometimes)), please let me know if I've got something wrong.--CaroleHenson (talk) 19:03, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
