photographs of Eric Partridge[edit]

I have uploaded two photos of Partridge to WikiCommons, but even though I now have a nice fast computer, I am a bit baffled by the process of getting the them onto the page, so I am just noting this here in case anyone is bored and feels like adding either or both pictures to his entry. The photos are details from pictures I took with a box-camera in 1971 and I have placed no restrictions on the use of the uploaded images. g88keeper (talk) 01:04, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Citations and article expansion[edit]

After saving this message, I will save my latest edit to this article. Editors will see that I've begun adding citations and finding links to online versions of this fellow's works. I've also come across some useful critique of his work, which facilitates objectivity and to which I will refer at some later point in article development.

What prompted this message is the fact that I'm about to add a [citation needed] template. I have no desire to, or intention of, peppering the article with citation templates. However, where I find a citation for a sentence, but not for the preceding sentence/s, the addition of a citation template is necessary so that I and others know that the sentence in question still requires a source. In other words, used properly, such templates are useful tools. There is of course no gain in peppering the remainder of the article with [citation needed] templates because the mere existence of a body of text with no citations makes it a bit obvious that citations are needed!
