Editing quotes, and WP:Edit summaries[edit]

Hello, ACaccamo. Be more careful not to edit a direct quote, as opposed to what you did in this edit, unless you are applying an exception from the WP:MOSQUOTE guideline. Also, be more careful to add a more accurate WP:Edit summary. As that link showing your edit displays, you did more than tackle a grammar matter. I fixed three mistakes you made in that edit.

Thank you so much for the help. Im new to this, I will definitely be more careful with my edits. ACaccamo (talk) 11:07, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi ACaccamo[edit]

I posted on my userpage the articles I would like to work on for the main assignment. If you have any sugguestions, feel free to write on my talk page. Thanks!! :) [[1]] Emariemag (talk) 15:16, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Suggestions for possible main project articles[edit]

Hi ACaccamo, so I have looked over the articles you would like to make improvements on. On the page for Paul A. Bennettt there is a lot of room for improvement, so my suggestion is that you do some research on him to get further information. A good place to get scholarly articles and reliable information is the CSI Library database, but when I did a quick search for articles on Paul Bennett, I could not find any. Maybe you will have better luck finding articles on Google Scholar. Otto Eckman is also a good article to work with because a page has not yet been created, and this leaves you with the possibility of finding out as much information as you can such as education, works, life history, etc. and kick starting that wiki page. For Daniel Berkeley Updike, I found this article on Google Scholar you might find helpful, but not sure, so you might want to skim through this article.

Hope this helps! Good Luck! :) Allyscully (talk) 15:50, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Allyscully, this is great advice.--Theredproject (talk) 17:40, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi ACaccamo! All your articles have lots of potential for expansion. You can definitely add more to their biographies, influence on design history and visual content they have produced. You can search through our library databases for additional info. Good luck! Emariemag (talk) 17:33, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Plan of Attack for 2 Articles[edit]

  • The articles I plan on looking into further are Otto Eckman and Daniel Berkeley Updike. Both of these individuals have added a great deal to the world of graphic design and both pages can be improved drastically. I plan on looking into CSI Library Database, Google Scholar and other scholarly sources to find adequate information to improve these pages.
  • Mr.Eckman is an artist and typographer, who's style mimics blackletter and Art Nouveau traditions, his Wikipedia page does not exist. A substantial amount of resourceful information can be added to create a wikipedia page for Otto Eckman. I find this task of creating a page from scratch quite intriguing. I plan on adding a contents table, his early life, education, his works and much more.
  • Mr.Updike has a wikipedia page, but not much information has been added. I found some resourceful articles on Google Scholar such as this one, this article. I plan to add much more.
Try to be more explicit about what you will add, and about the persons in general.--Theredproject (talk) 19:19, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
I think you should go with Updike, as it will be easier to expand an existing stub than creating a page from scratch.--Theredproject (talk) 17:42, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
Ok, sounds like a plan! Thanks! ACaccamo (talk) 17:23, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

peer review[edit]

Hi Acaccamo!

Article definitely sounds good and it looks like you reached the word count minimum. Like you suggested for me, a gallery would a nice addition to your article. I would also suggest adding a personal section so we can know more about your designer besides his career. Overall, great job!

Thanks for working on the paraphrasing problems on your page. I can't remember if you said you were planning on working further. If you complete any more changes, please leave a note on my talk page. You have until Thursday evening to complete any further changes. Cheers. --Theredproject (talk) 02:32, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
