Name[edit]

I believe that it is more useful to readers to use a consistent name reference for the same individual. If the name in the info box is "Linda Sue Evans," why not use that on the title and header of the entry as well? It helps distinguish this Linda Evans from others who appear on Wikipedia.--Historytrain (talk) 15:46, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

I agree completely to using "Linda Sue Evans" as the header, but I am not sure how to change it. If someone knows how to, please feel free to do it. ('Ktigger05 (talk) 04:22, 15 November 2008 (UTC)',,)

Substantiation for Allegations of Criminal Activity[edit]

There are several places within the entry where specific allegations of criminal activity (such as bank robberies) appear. Each of these claims (and each sentence in which they are contained) requires documtentation, as per Wikipedia policy on biographies of living persons.--Historytrain (talk) 15:35, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Is this a homework assignment? If you are posting these questions in an attempt to encourage the student to whom you've assigned this article to dot all the i's and cross all the t's, then I suggest that they would be better posted out of public view on the student's Wikipedia user page. If instead you are challenging the veracity of the statements themselves (most seem to be facts either well known or easily verified by citations already in the article, or by some googling), then you would need to edit the article to add a {{cn}} template immediately after each challenged statement. These are the same comments I made at Talk:Cathlyn Platt Wilkerson. --CliffC (talk) 20:15, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Current Life[edit]

Should the reference to “Tare Down the Walls" in this section actually read as "Tear Down the Walls"-- or is there some wordplay within the conference title?--Historytrain (talk) 16:58, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

You are absolutely right. It is actually "Tear Down the Walls" which is in fact a play in words. I will change that. Thanks! Ktigger05 (talk) 00:28, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

In-text Links[edit]

I added links to Michigan State University, United States, Detroit, Michigan, and Cleveland, Ohio. I know that not all of these places are crutial to your paper, but they have links so I went ahead and added them. Also, I like your paper. It's very thorough.

Citations to "Nation Master" - ?[edit]

This article cites "Nation Master", with no further detail, six times. What is "Nation Master"? If it's the site nationmaster.com, articles at that site are mostly mirrored from the originals at Wikipedia, and Wikipedia articles can't be used as citations. I tried finding support for a few of the statements cited to nationmaster.com - although there are a few articles there mentioning "our" Linda Evans (not the actress), they seem to be mirrored Wikipedia "Weatherman" articles, and in any event do not seem to support the statements they're footnoted to. Please explain, I must be missing something here. --CliffC (talk) 00:05, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

With the help of another wiki user I found out that "Nation Master" was a mirror website of Wikipedia. I did not actually realized that this other wiki user removed the actual reference without removing the footnotes. I have gone and changed the footnotes to be from a reliable source. Thanks!

Citation style[edit]

I added a {{citation style}} tag to the article, which would benefit from a more complete and consistent style of footnoting. It's not clear looking at terse footnotes like "PARC, 261", "Perazzo", "Horowitz", "Jacobin Books" whether they're supposed to lead to items in the "References" section. If they are, use those items themselves between the first <ref>...</ref> tags instead, and where there is an online version, link to it between the tags so readers can go straight to the source. Where the citation is a duplicate, it can be shared to avoid footnote clutter/duplication - edit this article and look for tags "USAvLSE" to see how. Forming citations can be tricky at first but a lot can be picked up by examining how it's done in other articles. If you get stuck, feel free to ask a question here and I'll try to help.

I see what you are saying. I will do further research on this and I will definitely look into other articles to get some perspective. It might be a while, so if you want to change some stuff feel free to. FYI every footnote has a connection to the actual "reference" section. Ktigger05 (talk) 10:26, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

POV tag[edit]

A POV tag was added to the article today without any explanation. I would like to invite the editor to address his or her concerns here. Regards, ClovisPt (talk) 17:39, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
