Talk:Elaine S. Dalton

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


This article made it sound as if Elaine Dalton was released from her position, because women in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints found her too traditional and unappreciative of feminist ideals. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have added one simple sentence -- Young Women's Presidencies serve for five years, and Dalton was released because she and her counselors had fulfilled that five-year tenure. Dalton's philosophies and teachings were completely in line with the doctrines of the Church as expressed by the Mormon prophet, the Mormon apostles and other priesthood leaders.GTOBoomer (talk) 22:03, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

But the source you added doesn't say the YW presidencies serve for five years. In fact, it states that Dalton's presidency served for six years. (However, April 2008 to April 2013 is indeed five years, so it's not a great source to use in any case.) Good Ol’factory (talk) 23:13, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
You're right. My bad. I like your corrections and think Elaine will be satisfied. I'm a bit inexperienced with the Wiki. All is well now. Thanks!GTOBoomer (talk) 18:40, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
GTOBoomer with your reference to "Elaine being satisfied" and given your expressed inexperience, I would just remind you to take care in such things as wp:coi, wp:spa, and a host of other guidelines. Edits should not be advocating for or in behalf of an individual, etc. WP guidelines/policies assist editors as they act in good faith to convey a wp:npov and be balanced in contributions and article content. Thanks for your interest in WP and helping its content be strong. ChristensenMJ (talk) 16:31, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
