Depersonalize[edit]

Ealdgyth, the first order of business is to "globalize" it; that is, write it from the perspective of any person who reviews sources, rather than "Ealdgyth" reviewing sources. I hesitate to do that pass myself, in case you have time. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:39, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Go ahead. I'm not that worried about my writing, honestly. And I'm a bit busy this week, it's Regionals, so I'm going to be pretty busy tomorrow at the very least. Hack away! Ealdgyth - Talk 01:41, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
okey-dokey. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 01:58, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Looks good on a first look. I'll make a copyedit pass tomorrow when my brain is functioning again. (Too many mornings up way too early for halter classes). Ealdgyth - Talk 02:46, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Notes[edit]

  • First sentence is wordy to me, but I'm not sure how to trim it. "One of the features of Wikipedia's best articles that sets it apart from much of the Internet is the skill with which they are verified (WP:V) and reliably sourced (WP:RS); these two processes are policy and guidelines, respectively."
  • I added in a bit about the link checker tool. Might as well get more folks using it!

Just did a few minor tweaks, looks good to me. Ealdgyth - Talk 01:24, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Sample[edit]

After I put the fellas through the wringer at Trial by Jury on G&S, we might be able to work this in as a sample of how to put together info to comply with WP:SPS:

  • I guess not; when I posted this, it was a page that focused specifically on WP:SPS items, and provided a great example, but now it's got a lot more info, that doesn't relate to SPS, so might mislead readers. SandyGeorgia (Talk) 02:10, 24 June 2008 (UTC)
I think we've readjusted it back. Make any other changes you see fit =) Shoemaker's Holiday (talk) 10:07, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
