Non-free image usage[edit]

Hi A.S. Brown. I just wanted to let you know that I hid File:Kristallnacht example of physical damage.jpg from being displayed in your User:A.S. Brown/Herschel Grynszpan user subpage. Thisis a non-free image and may only be used in article namespace per WP:NFCC#9 (see also WP:UP#Non-free images). You can link to non-free images if you wish like I have done above when they are the subject of talk page discussions or in drafts/use subpages, but they should not be displayed. It's a good idea to check the images of any articles you are planning to copy into your user sanboxes, etc. before doing so just to see whether they are non-free. If you have any questions about this feel free to ask them here or at WP:MCQ. -- Marchjuly (talk) 03:15, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

I see somebody blanked a lot of your contributions in Adenauer article. I will have to review this later.--MyMoloboaccount (talk) 12:47, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Your edits at Mansfield Park[edit]

Regarding your nice edits at Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, it would be interesting to hear if you have any possible interest in developing the article further towards peer review quality. The article looks like it might have areas for improvement. Possibly you might have some interest in the article's development. Cheers. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 14:51, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

Those were really nice edits on Mansfield Park from you over the last month. When I looked at the article, that theme of slavery was the issue of importance for me as well. It would be nice to hear if you might be interested to expand that section a little further. Over the summer I did collect the 4-5 best essays on Mansfield from the last 30 years if you have any interest to glance at them. Mansfield is Austen best novel for philosophical and sociological types of readers. Nice editing for the parts you did do. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 15:30, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Those were quite impressive edits at the Mansfield Park article. I have added some minor copy edits for readability and feel free to change back any ones you like or otherwise enhance the text. Your introductory paragraph (introducing the two new pro and contra sections) was also impressive and it would be nice to see a cite or two added to that prefatory short paragraph. Your comments to me on my Talk page previously were persuasive I think and some of it can be added into the article preface if you can find a good citation or two for support. Nice edits. Fountains-of-Paris (talk) 20:51, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

My edits in de Gobineau[edit]

I have received a notification that you have thanked me for some edits in the Gobineau article. I am not sure if I should look somewhere for a more elaborate text, or if the notification is it, so this is just to say that I am happy about the acknowledgment, In brief, thanks for thanks! And thanks for an interesting article. SkaraB 16:09, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Montgomery[edit]

Hi - Do you think you could put a citation on the following: "By the middle of July Caen had not been taken, as Rommel continued to prioritise prevention of the break-out by British forces rather than the western territories being taken by the Americans. This was broadly as Montgomery had planned, albeit not with the same speed as he outlined at St Paul's."? Thanks. Dormskirk (talk) 15:02, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

von Ungern Sternberg[edit]

Hi, I see you are very interested in Roman von Ungern Sternberg. I would be interested to know what you think of the Doctor Alicia J. Campi critique of James Palmers biography of the man, considering how prevalent his book is used as a reference. --101.181.150.210 (talk) 21:39, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

Please don't add things without proper sources. I have seen you doing that in a few pages, for example in Sima Qian, you wrote an extended passage on eunuch not supported by sources. You need correct sources to state that he in fact had to use a metal tube or wear a jar around his neck. You cannot make assumption because of what you know about eunuch, you only add something in the sources that directly say it's what Sima Qian had to do. Hzh (talk) 15:17, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
