Always Finish[edit]

If a task is once begun,
Never leave it till it's done.
Be the labour great or small,
Do it well or not at all.

  • MOS:ABBR: Always consider whether it is better to simply write a word or phrase out in full, thus avoiding potential confusion for those not familiar with its abbreviation. Remember that Wikipedia does not have the same space constraints as paper.

Better source[edit]

  • WP:BURDEN: "The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and is satisfied by providing a reliable source that directly supports the material."

WP:Canvas: "Messages that are written to influence the outcome rather than to improve the quality of a discussion compromise the consensus building process and may be considered disruptive."


  • [[Category:Operas by Tommaso Traetta| ]]
  • [[Category:Lists of operas by composer|Traetta, Tommaso]]

Remove all of the articles from the categories. Then after 4 days, they would meet WP:CSD C1 and you could tag them with {{Db-c1}}

Disagreement hierarchy pyramid[edit]

Dispute resolution[edit]


According to WP:DISRUPT: Disruptive editing is a pattern of editing that . . . disrupts progress towards improving an article or building the encyclopedia. . . . Disruptive editing is not always intentional. Editors may be accidentally disruptive because they don't understand how to correctly edit, or because they lack the social skills or competence necessary to work collaboratively. The fact that the disruption occurs in good faith does not change the fact that it is harmful to Wikipedia.

  • The Wikipedia policy WP:UNDUE is very clear. "An article should not give undue weight to any aspects of the subject, but should strive to treat each aspect with a weight appropriate to its significance to the subject. "WP:UNDUE "applies not only to article text, but to images, wikilinks, external links, categories, and all other material as well." So the infobox, which is a summary of the article, should not emphasize obscure facts (trivia) that are not essential to the article.


Inline templates[edit]

Italics guideline[edit]

While italicizing the title of a musical work within the text of the article is normal practice, displaying the titles of Wikipedia articles on specific works in italics, e.g. Medea (Pacini) is not recommended, per Template:Italic title/doc and Wikipedia:Naming conventions.

Wikipedia:Proposed mergers

merging ( "Merging is a normal editing action, something any editor can do, and as such does not need to be proposed and processed." ) and splitting ( "If . . . a section of an article has a length that is out of proportion to the rest of the article it is recommended that a split is carried out.").



"Five years ago, Wikipedia could be defined as "three milion encyclopedia articles which anyone can edit". I am afraid that today it has become "a decadent social networking site with 10,000 members who have three million articles to play with". One just has to look at the pages in the "User talk:", "Wikipedia talk:", and "Template talk:" to realize that most Wikipedia decisions are being made by a small minority of "bosses" who seem to derive more pleasure out of social interaction (and, in particular, the sense of power that comes from "bossing" over other members) than on making real substantial contributions to Wikipedia."

"At the root of the problem is that Wikipedia's decision-making mechanism is thoroughly broken. As we saw here, and in countless other cases, any clique of ten editors can write a rule or standard, vote it among themselves, and declare it "consensus". Almost every guideline in Wikipedia:* was decided in this way. No country could survive more than a few years with such a "randomcratic" government; and it seems that Wikipedia cannot either. All the best (if still possible to hope), --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 22:43, 23 February 2010 (UTC)" [4]

This is your Talk page where you can receive messages from other Wikipedians and discuss things with them. At the end of your messages you must put your signature by signing with four ~~~~ (just as I have done) or by pressing the button in the editor bar as shown here in the picture. By the way, you don't need to sign edits that you make in the articles themselves as those messages will be deleted. Another valuable page that may provide information and assistance is User:Persian Poet Gal/"How-To" Guide to Wikipedia. If you have any questions or face any initial hurdles, feel free to contact me on my talk page and I will do what I can to assist or give you guidance and contact information. Good Luck editing!

Quotes/Swans etc.[edit]

Swans sing before they die - 'twere no bad thing
Did certain persons die before they sing.
(Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1722-1834)

  • Lege feliciter
  • Scribimus indocti doctique poemata passim = Each desperate blockhead dares to write (lit: “Learned or not, we shall write poems without distinction”)
  • Scribimus indocti doctique. (All dare to write, who can or cannot read: Samuel Johnson)
  • Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes - I fear the Greeks, even when they bring gifts. (Virgil) Aeneid, Book 2 line 49
  • E scusami se è poco = and I beg your pardon if it’s too little! (of a long message)
  • “Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy.” Kafka
  • Major Strasser is one of the reasons the Third Reich enjoys the reputation it has today

Ogden Nash verses[edit]

In 1949, Ogden Nash wrote a set of humorous verses to accompany each movement for a Columbia Masterworks recording of Carnival of the Animals conducted by Andre Kostelanetz. Recited on the original album by Noel Coward, they are now often included when the work is performed. The conclusion of the verse for the "Fossils", for example, fits perfectly with the punchline-like first bar of the music:

At midnight in the museum hall
The fossils gathered for a ball
There were no drums or saxophones,
But just the clatter of their bones,
A rolling, rattling, carefree circus
Of mammoth polkas and mazurkas.
Pterodactyls and brontosauruses
Sang ghostly prehistoric choruses.
Amid the mastodontic wassail
I caught the eye of one small fossil.
"Cheer up, sad world," he said, and winked-
"It's kind of fun to be extinct."
