Typo[edit]

Hey! There is a typo here-somewhere- at the beginning it says he died in 1965, at the end it states he died in 1956!! Oooopsh! Does anybody know what is the correct date?? Huldra 00:35, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Snarky[edit]

No need to be, Dougweller: the person who wrote the info should have added his or her source. I have many other interests and tasks here, thank you.--Jumbolino (talk) 16:49, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

No, I was serious. And that edit was over 7 years ago, we were nowhere near as rigorous about sourcing then. It was really simple to look at the Dogon article and add sources, particularly as this isn't even contentious and the article with the sources is linked to this one. If something is really dubious I add fact tags, but normally I try to source, even for articles in which I have little to no interest. Adding sources is generally a better way to improve Wikipedia than adding fact tags, although they are needed at times and I certainly add them. Dougweller (talk) 18:14, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I agree: it's always better to source than slap a tag but when I've got time and the inclination to do so. Having spent over 8 hours straight the day before writing, sourcing, and translating French and Italian texts into English for another Wiki article, I wasn't inclined to go further on this one and I don't need to be lectured about it. Editors aren't robots and a good faith edit remains exactly that. --Jumbolino (talk) 18:44, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, apologies, but what you've been doing sounds more satisfying than chasing copyvio, pov editors, etc., so I envy you. Dougweller (talk) 20:42, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your elegant reply. --Jumbolino (talk) 22:28, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
