Who likes to improve articles on Nobel laureates?[edit]

Hi, everyone,

I've just had the enjoyable experience of participating in bringing the high-page-view article English language from B class to good article status in collaboration with several other editors. Now my attention is turning to biographical articles (both for living persons and dead persons), and one biographical category that deserves in all cases to have featured article quality articles is biographical articles about Nobel Prize winners. Is this an article category that interests you? I have deep supplies of sources for some Nobel laureates (especially in literature or in physics), and in general the biographies of Nobel laureates should be a lot easier to source than many other biographical articles. Who's in? What articles about Nobel Prize winners would you suggest fixing first? -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 18:20, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I am in. Cheers! Educationtemple (talk) 14:37, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Great, Educationtemple, I'm glad to hear that. Are there any particular Nobel laureates who interest you as people to start with? -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 02:40, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Following up with @Educationtemple: here, I wonder if you have any particular Nobel laureates to suggest to begin working on? -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 14:55, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
I routinely do this work in my area of scholarship, but would suggest a discussion as to aims before beginning. The Nobel foundation already has biographies of most, and for most, they are also members of their national academies (e.g., of sciences) or other prestigious bodies, sometimes more than one, and each of these usually have biographical treatises. What is the aim of the WP effort, and how might these standard materials be uniformly accessed (without hodge-podge, quality-lower extraction, or simple repetition of fine web materials already available)? Again, what is the aim — what kind of articles do we hope to produce, unique to wikipedia? Le Prof 71.239.87.100 (talk) 02:15, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
For the most part, I think the general aim on Wikipedia is simply to improve content quality everywhere on the encyclopedia. (That was listed as a Wikimedia Foundation strategic planning goal a few years ago.) Which existing Wikipedia articles on Nobel laureates do you think are in the best shape today? Which are most in need of improvement, having not even used yet the sources you have kindly mentioned? On my part, I have been reading the Nobel Foundation biographies of the prize winners since the days when you could only find those in printed books, long before the foundation's publications were online. They represent one view of the biography of each prize winner. But of course many of the Nobel Prize winners had such interesting lives that they have been the subject of longer or shorter biographical writings from many other authors. A thorough biographical article on Wikipedia should, like the article English language, reflect many recognized scholarly sources on the article topic (the life of a particular Nobel Prize winner) and would certainly cite the Nobel Foundation publications and the publications of various national academies of science. But it would not stop with sources like those, but also make use of many other sources appropriate to the life of each person as those sources are available. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 02:40, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Image request[edit]

I am not familiar with fair use / copyright policies re: image of a nonliving individual. If anyone is willing to determine if an image of Sybil Plumlee is allowed at Wikipedia, I'd be much appreciated and the image would greatly benefit this newly-promoted Good article. Links to possible images:

Any assistance is very helpful. Thanks for your consideration. ----Another Believer (Talk) 16:50, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

roger keith coleman[edit]

I find it baffling that there are still those in this country and around the world that think that Roger Coleman is and was innocent of the crime he was so justly convicted and executed for. The press attacks on the resident's of Grundy County Virginia implying they were stupid and backward are all too typical of the asinine liberal media... they can't form any sophisticated thinking because they're lower class coal miners, etc., so therefore they can't possibly be trusted to come to any complicated conclusions about Roger Coleman's guilt or innocence. Dumb hicks, I can hear them saying to themselves smugly. Guess what, professors? Guess what, church leaders and the like? I loved seeing the leading champion of the convicted killer's receiving the DNA results by phone as the documentary cameras rolled, showing conclusively Coleman's guilt. I thought the man was going to have a heart attack. How right and just. Did "Time Magazine" run an apology to the citizen's that correctly convicted that monster? I don't recall seeing that in their venerated rag. No... that wouldn't do, would it? "Don't let the facts confuse you" is what a former (thankfully) liberal fiancée used to say to me all the time when I called him out on his crap. Same thing to Time and all the other idiots. Serves you all right. Eat crow. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.44.226.12 (talk) 02:42, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Inaccurate age/date of birth[edit]

In a BLP article, what is the proper way to address the subject's age when the stated date of birth, as found in reliable sources, may have been deliberately obfuscated. I was going to do a partial re-write of the Ric Ocasek article and have found some details (for instance, he graduated high school in 1963) that call into question his date of birth (1949). Piriczki (talk) 13:22, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Untitled[edit]

Hi. I have no idea if this is where i am supposed to post this. I updated my father's biography the other day (Allan Taylor RBC) He is in his eighties and someone told him that Wikipedia is where you should have your bio listed. He is a great Canadian, started as a teller cutting firewood at a branch in Prince Albert Sask. at the very lowest pay scale and rose thru the ranks to become the Chairman and CEO. Officer of the Order of Canada, Business Hall of Fame, great philanthropist, several honorary degrees etc. etc. etc. The biography was typed EXACTLY as it is written by the Bank's archivists, it is all entirely accurate. i don't know what else to say. Yes I am his son, no the updates should not be removed - they are all completely accurate. Thanks to whomever is taking the time to review this. 216.126.124.148 (talk) 04:16, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

The article referred to here is apparently Allan R. Taylor. Mr. Taylor, Wikipedia policy requires reliable sources for its articles, particularly those about living people. If you have magazine or newspaper articles which could be used to back up the facts in the article, that would be particularly helpful. If they are online, you could provide links to them on the talk page, and other editors could work with you to get the article up to WP standards. 1bandsaw (talk) 05:24, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

AfD (potential hoax?)[edit]

There is currently a discussion regarding an article that may be of interest to members of this project. Concerns have been raised that the article may be a hoax. Interested editors are encouraged to join the discussion at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Manahel Thabet. Thank you. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:43, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

"Additional voices"[edit]

Comments invited at Talk:Bill Farmer. Lots of articles, (ex: Yuri Lowenthal or Roger Craig Smith) and especially those that are attractive to fans of a popular property tend to acquire lengthy filmographies, which often include credits like "Additional voices" or "Monkey #2". In the linked discussion the matter is focused on whether or not Bill Farmer's "additional voices" credits should be included. However, this should be a topic of greater significance since it is something that comes up in a great many articles. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 05:19, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Announcing new WikiProject for Romance[edit]

Hello, don't know if there are any members still around, but this is Plange who'd revitalized this WP back in 2006. I since ceased being active on WP, and I'm slowly starting to return, but with a narrower focus. I've started a new WikiProject for romance and thought I'd see if anyone was interested in joining? Since the scope encompasses more than biographies, I didn't feel like it could be solely a task force here or on WP:NOVELS. Anyway, I've got the bones set up and will keep working on getting guidelines and tasks hammered out. I'll definitely be pointing people here for the parts that overlap with this WP. Looking forward to getting it rolling and recruiting any interested members! :) plange (talk) 02:42, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride![edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view. One does not need to identify as LGBT or any other gender or sexual minority to participate. This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.


Thanks, and happy editing!
