User:MelanieN deleted my recent edits. In her edit summary, she wrote "uncited." This is false.

The evidence that my edits were cited are shown here: Doug Manchester: Difference between revisions, revision Revision as of 15:53, 11 April 2014.

As such, her deletion has been reversed.

As a courtesy to all Wikipedia editors, please do not write false statements in your edit summaries. Doing so undermines the integrity of Wikipedia.

Thanks a bunch, Jacknjillauburn (talk) 16:03, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your note, User:Jacknjillauburn. Six of your references are not cited properly (the ones that are flagged "cite error" in the references section); fix them and they can stay (assuming they are Reliable Sources and confirm the material). Meanwhile I have removed a little of the puffery and corrected "Papa Doug" to "Manchester." He is deserving of recognition for his philanthropy, provided it is done in a non-promotional tone.
I also moved the information about his influence on downtown redevelopment from "philanthropy" to "business", and I moved the "Nice Guys" award to the "Recognition" section. )
BTW your list of major beneficiaries omits the University of San Diego, which I believe has received multiple millions from him. Also The Bishop's School. Do you want to add them, or shall I?--MelanieN (talk) 17:55, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
P.S. A bot just fixed one of your references. Give it time and maybe it will fix them all! --MelanieN (talk) 18:06, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Some references were added but they were never defined ex: <ref name="ut20131102" /> If possible then please define the references else delete them. (Note:@MelanieN: non defined sources cannot be fixed by the bot.) Jim Carter (talk) 08:11, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. Let's leave this alone for a few days to give Jacknjillauburn a chance to fix the other references. --MelanieN (talk) 13:55, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Jim Carter (talk) 14:31, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
-References are now fixed. Thanks for everyone's attention & time. Jacknjillauburn (talk) 14:38, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
I added University of San Diego and The Bishop's School as major recipients. --MelanieN (talk) 15:34, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
