  • i stumbled upon an article, HMS Southampton (1912), where either the text is a free invention, or at least not accurate. one indication: the article states it participated at a battle in 1916, which took place in 1914.

  • searching the internet for wikipedia editing help, wikipedia quality do not bring up a good help page. defining keywords, and having one initial help page would be preferrable, which really is found by the keywords.

Feedback from Rubywine (27 August 2011)[edit]

Was this page helpful ?
  • No. This page is too large, verbose and poorly structured. It doesn't meet the needs of new users at all. The lead section is waffly and too detailed. The image doesn't add value; it increases the visual clutter. The material in the section entitled "More information on editing wiki pages" is badly organised. I think this page needs a total rethink and rewrite.
Was it easy to understand ?
  • No
Was it complete enough, with enough details ?
  • I'm not a new user so I can't comment on completeness. But I think there is far too much unnecessary detail.
How can we make it better ?
  • I would suggest cutting the page right down to the basics. Remove all jargon, especially all the stuff about being bold.
  • What's needed: A simple jargon-free explanation of how to edit, linked to a beginner's version of wiki markup. Mention the critical importance of using references with 2-3 clear examples (link to explanation of reliable sources). Mention the importance of using the preview button. Mention the importance of a meaningful edit summary. Most new editors will just want to edit an existing page, so have a separate page on creating a new article (mention stub tags, categories, wikiprojects). Remove the big blurry image. The material in the section entitled "More information on editing wiki pages" could be put into a navbox; anything that is important for new users to read should not be in this section.

There's something I believe, that belongs here and is not included. Simply, how can I change an article's name in regards to its uppercase/lowercase choice of letters only. I would simply go and create a new page and redirect the wrong spelled version but that's impossible.

  • Please add, in the "Naming and moving" section, that, in order to rename a page, one must "move" it. That makes sense, since most people going to the "naming" section of the "editing" page are probably trying to rename an article. It took me a while to understand that. I couldn't locate that information at the the "article titles" page --even though it's in the summary, that summary is quite long, and a in-document search for "edit" and "change" does not return the answer.

Other comments ?
  • Example: a fairly lengthy unsigned comment on the Talk page for Judicial Notice quotes from the article as follows.
Lincoln does not draw upon a fact that was "so notorious or well known that it cannot be refuted"

The contributor is right, and I'm planning to rephrase the sentence quoted . . I'd like to add something to the Talk-page entry - to (1) indicate to that contributor that this particular point has resulted in action (2) make newcomers, and others who have since :-appended reactions to the contribution, aware that the article has moved on since this particular point was made. And I don't know how to do this without seeming odd / rustic, and risk being misunderstood as boorish / offensive.

The best way I can think of to give a highly-specific tie-in to my change is to edit the text of the existing comment with a corresponding "[*]", and add a kinda-footnote after it, :-indented and starting with "[*]". But the problem I'm trying to solve here must be widely familiar; presumably there are familiar solutions. SquisherDa (talk) 03:06, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Other comments- this pertains to the articles on the catholic saints. I don't know where you got the word 'cult' from. There are no cults in the roman catholic religion that are permitted What is called a cult - should be called a 'veneration'. This similar to the adulation given a person who did something great. In general terms like venerating an olympian. Get your info on catholic saints from catholic sources that contain the info of 'nihil obstat' and 'imprimatur'. These are the 'seals of approval' on the writings Any questions contact [details removed]

Feedback from Morels (23 April 2012)[edit]

Specifically, after a long absence of editing Wikipedia pages, I am looking for an answer to an access problem to editing. Specifically when I click on "Edit This Page" the action downloads a PHP file called "Index.php". I was expecting to see the editing process demonstrated on this page. I'm on a Mac (10.7.3) and have no expertise in PHP. How can I get access to the "normal" editing routines as demonstrated on this page. If there's something on this Mac that needs to be disabled in order to do that, I'd appreciate appropriate tips.

Thank you. Morley Chalmers aka Morels <morels01@[details removed]>

Glossary of Edit codes available on edit help pages

When i saw a particular code on a edit page, I wanted to find out what it meant and examples of how it functioned. I had trouble finding it here. I wanted to find out what "eo:", meant and was not sure how to find it.

  • it would be helpful to know if/how it's possible to add edit-details after submitting an edit.

ex: i hit the 'enter' key before adding an edit-summary; the edit was submitted. i went to the list of edits to see if i could add a summary and i don't see a way to do it. is it possible? i would also like to add 'this is a minor edit' to another one of my edits (after submitting); i don't know if it's possible.

sorry, i found the info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Edit_summary
