What to do with a page with "difficult" reference structure[edit]

I would like to work on the page Augmentative and Alternative Communication but the reference structure is very odd As far as I can tell, I need to add a reference in the reference area, and then hand code using Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). (in the main text) where I would like it to be inserted so it will show up as a "linked" note ( which then links back to the actual reference) This is a very cumbersome approach, and may explain why so little new information has been added to the page in the last year or two.

What happens in Wikipedia in these situations? Can I recreate the page as it "should" be done, and then nominate that the new page replace the old one? I don't want to change the information, I just want to get it to a stage where it can be edited more easily Thanks Dbm2psu (talk) 13:12, 5 July 2015 (UTC) David July 5, 2015

That article is already a Good Article, which means it already went through a structured review. So, before trying to re-invent it, I would raise this on the talk page of the article or look at the main authors of the article and talk to them as well. Otherwise, the reference structure is fairly standard on the more developed articles. Aboutmovies (talk) 20:16, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Can you upload the logo for our company to replace the older one you uploaded in 2010?[edit]

Hi there,

My name is David, and I'm the webmaster for Acumed LLC, the company for which you uploaded a logo back in 2010.

Since then, at around 2013, we have a new logo that we would like to be reflected on our Wikipedia entry. However, I cannot replace or upload a new logo to the Acumed entry.

Would it be possible for you to do this? Or could you instruct me how? I'm very sorry to be a bother, but the logo image that's currently on the Acumed entry is now out-of-date and no longer represents our company, and I'd love to see it updated to the most current (that is now displayed prominently on all of our buildings here in Hillsboro!).

The current logo can be found here: http://www.acumed.net/profiles/acumed/themes/custom/resolution/logo.png

Or, if you'd like, I can point you to a much larger, high-resoltion version of the logo elsewhere.

Thank you so much for your help with this, Davidhollandacumed (talk) 22:28, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Revert on Hillsboro Hops[edit]

What was your reason for making this rollback on Hillsboro Hops? To me, the IP's edits didn't seem to be vandalism. Conifer (talk) 07:43, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

They were unexplained that including the improper removal of a comma, and the removal of context for the non-American readers. Does it meet everyone's definition of vandalism, no, and had there been an edit summary I would have undone instead of rolledback. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:50, 11 July 2015 (UTC)
If it's good-faith, though, shouldn't you include an edit summary? Per WP:Rollback. Conifer (talk) 07:59, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Updated images of buildings/facilities for the "Acumed" article[edit]

Hi,

This is David Holland, webmaster for Acumed, reaching out to you once again to see if you would be so kind as to upload the two images referenced below, that replace the current ones on the "Acumed" Wikipedia article showing our buildings:

Cornelius Pass Road ( http://images.acumed.net/facilities/Acumed-building-Cornelius-Pass-HQ.jpg ) Brookwood Parkway ( http://images.acumed.net/facilities/Acumed-building-Brookwood-Parkway-facility.jpg )

Constitution of Saint Kitts and Nevis[edit]

Thank you for assessing the article for Wikiproject Law. I was wondering, since you assessed it C class, what areas you think it needs improvement in, and which of the B class criteria it fails? I'd like to know how to further improve the article. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 14:17, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

The two issues are that the WP:LEDE should be expanded, and more importantly for me is there is too much reliance on WP:PRIMARY sources. If you review the United States Constitution, which is B class, I did not see any citations to the constitution itself in a quick look. A large portion of this article is sourced to the constitution itself. This is a very common problem in law articles as we attorneys think we are allowed to interpret what the cases and statutes say. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:29, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. I'll work on expanding the lede. Not sure where to look for secondary sources that merely summarize the various provisions (which was what I was trying to do with the end part of the article). ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 18:37, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Dan Butler[edit]

Sorry about the revert, when I saw the page it had a large amount of errors, I don't know if my browser freaked out or wiki had a template that was broken. Again, sorry about that. Red error text was all over the page, so leaning towards broken template. Esw01407 (talk)

No problem. Aboutmovies (talk) 20:01, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Re: Chief Kno-Tah[edit]

This article looks pretty good to me. Do you have any interest in nominating it for Good status? If not, I can put it on my 'to do' list, but I already have five articles waiting for GA reviews. Also, apologies if I have already asked you this before. ---Another Believer (Talk) 23:08, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Go ahead, I don't really have time for in-depth editing anymore, other than rare occasions. Aboutmovies (talk) 05:08, 15 September 2015 (UTC)
OK, sounds good. I will be sure to note that I am nominating the article on your behalf, and may even include you as a co-nominator. This is simply to credit you as the article's primary contributor; need need to actually follow the GA review, unless you wish. Again, this may not be for quite some time, as I am currently waiting for several articles to be reviewed. ---Another Believer (Talk) 20:13, 15 September 2015 (UTC)

Kryptiq Changed Its Name to Enli Health Intelligence[edit]

Wanted to make you aware that Kryptiq has changed its name to "Enli Health Intelligence." The press release announcing the name change can be found here:

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/kryptiq-becomes-enli-health-intelligence-300143757.html

Additionally, the principal line of business is no longer secure messaging software (the company no longer holds this within its product portfolio). Instead, Enli develops and sells population health IT (i.e. software that helps providers stratify populations, deliver care, and then coordinate care). With this, the company also packages advisory services that focus on transforming the primary care delivery model (adoption of care teams, integration of technology, etc.). The website, not yet fully built-out, can be found at www.enli.net.

I offer this as I believe you have offered the most commentary on Kryptiq historically. I hope this is looked upon as constructive--please feel free to re-point or redirect if warranted.

Thank you -

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Susan Graber Article[edit]

The changes I've made all improve the accuracy and writing of the article. I'm not removing content that is "technically correct"--if I gave that impression previously then I misspoke.

  • The only content I removed from the article is an inaccurate reference to Judge Graber being a "U.S. District Court" judge prior to her appointment on the Oregon Court of Appeals. That statement is untrue and needs to be removed. (The reference is also not "sourced"; if you click on the link that's supposed to support that she was a district court judge, it takes you to an unavailable webpage).
  • The other changes are correcting grammatical errors or adding more information about her career.

If you see anything that is specifically a problem, please let me know and I'm happy to work with you to get it right.

Clyde cancer cluster[edit]

Why is it a C-class article and not higher? What did I not do that I should have done as far as factual accuracy or missing information goes? I'm trying to improve it so that it can become a Good Article, so can you help? Philmonte101 (talk) 06:37, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I wasn't exactly offended. I just wanted to know if there's really something missing. Philmonte101 (talk) 06:43, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
What I do are quick, first assessments. I skim the article quickly. In this case, I have heard and read about similar issues, such as Love Canal. As you can see by that B class article, there is simply more content (even if you were to limit it to the superfund issues). Aboutmovies (talk) 06:54, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
You're the one with the law degree, and not me, which is why I'm the beta here. Can you tell me, what more is there to add? I felt when I was writing the article that if I wrote more information I'd just be inserting trivia that would confuse the readers. Philmonte101 (talk) 07:14, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

The Argus[edit]

Hi, AM. I noticed your edits to The Hillsboro Argus, giving news that I somehow missed. You're probably thinking about what to do with the articles on that paper and the Forest Grove Leader, after mid-January. Here's my two cents: Although one might be tempted to move The Hillsboro Argus to The Washington County Argus, I would argue that it makes more sense to start a new article, because moving the Hillsboro Argus would take a paper with a very long history and a relatively well-developed article and fold it into a new article while leaving the Forest Grove Leader – a paper with a relatively very short history – as a standalone article, which doesn't make sense to me. Thanks largely to your work, the two articles are relatively well-developed compared to most newspaper articles for mid-sized (or smaller) cities on Wikipedia. If they were stubs, I'd say just move one and merge the other, but they are not. Both deserved to remain as standalone articles that simply point to the new article about their successor, the Washington County Argus. Keeping the three separate would also allow better categorization. The new article would be very short initially, and might even have to be a redirect (to the Hillsboro Argus) initially, but we already have at least two articles from third-party sources: the Hillsboro Tribune one you cited and the (closely related) OPB story, so there should be enough to establish notability before long. WW will probably also cover it soon. I don't think I have enough interest to create that new article myself, but I figured you might be interested in my thoughts on this, considering that I'm one of the few other editors who has spent much time (in recent years) working on WP articles about Portland-area newspapers. Cheers. – SJ Morg (talk) 10:39, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

I agree that the existing articles should maintain their integrity and a new article created for the new paper (sadly not surprising given the mismanagement of Advance since they bought the Argus). I actually first read about it in a Hillsboro Round-up, the last one according to the article, so we will have several sources to start with. I would be interested in writing the article, but I am too busy right now starting a business on the fly. I hope things will calm down by the end of next month, but who knows. Thanks. Aboutmovies (talk) 21:46, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Christopher Felver[edit]

Hello Aboutmovies. I see you have done some work on the Chrisopher Felver article. I have done quite a bit of editing/research on that article recently and believe it is quite objective at this point. I do not think the note about it being a possible autobiography is relevant anymore. Also, the issue of links to/from the article is being addressed. I'l like to get your input. Thank you - and Happy New Year!Ray Jameson (talk) 03:30, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Phoseon Technology[edit]

Hi Aboutmovies,

I am curious to find out why you removed external links on the Phoseon Technology page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoseon_Technology). Could you please provide an explanation?

thanks, UVLED2U (talk) 15:47, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

The reason was left in the edit summary, which is to review WP:ELNO. I do not know if every single one of these "articles" was written by someone from Phoseon, but most were, meaning they would not be used as sources and thus would be links to be avoided. I will assume you have some sort of relationship with Phoseon and adding these was an attempt to market the company, which is something Wikipedia is not for. If these were links to legitimate media coverage of the company by third-party, independent sources, those would be fine. But not basically spam. Aboutmovies (talk) 16:33, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Internet Retailer[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Internet Retailer requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Cahk (talk) 19:25, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Eliza Dorothea Cobbe, Lady Tuite[edit]

Greetings! You just added the category stating that Lady Tuite was from Dublin City and I wondered if you have a reference for that as so far I can only place her as in the county - probably Doneraile. 🍺 Antiqueight chat 00:16, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't. My assumption is when the infobox has just the name, it is the city, as opposed to it saying County Dublin. Feel free to move it to the county cat. Aboutmovies (talk) 05:46, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

See also[edit]

Technically, the additions to the see also sections of those pages did not repeat the link in the navbox. The link in the navbox is a general list (and an incomplete one) of listing all hospitals in Oregon (which looks like a rather extensive list). The ones added to the see also sections are ones with closer affiliations to each other/closer proximity to each other. I don't think WP:SEEALSO quite applies here. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 07:05, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Nope, technically they all were linked directly, and the below nav template that I believe is on every Oregon hospital article looks rather complete to me, but let me know which ones are missing. Also, Good Sam would be a lot closer to OHSU than say Tuality or even Providence Portland, and OHSU and Tuality hospital do not have an affiliation (the clinics do), and Providence Portland really has nothing in common other than being another hospital. I could see Legacy Emmanuel as the other Level I, but that would be it, and there is no need given the nav box link. Speaking of Providence Portland Medical Center, OHSU Hospital and St. Vincent's were already linked in the lede. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:36, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Portlandia statue[edit]

Your objection on 9-15-15 to Scottdoesntknow's inclusion, in the Portland article, of a photo of the Portlandia statue/sculpture in front of the Portland Building is without substance.

The Portlandia sculture is in an unquestionably public location therefore no one can object to displaying/reporting it unadulterated in a journalistic/non-profit-educational endeavor such as Wikipedia. Now if Wikipedia-editor/photo-publisher Scottdoesntknow had cribbed someone else's photo of Portlandia and tried to pass it off as his own, that'd be a problem - proper attribution must be paid - but it appears in this instance that Scottdoesntknow was merely linking to a photo already (and still) published at Wikipedia's Portlandia article, which is perfectly fine. Once a photo's publication passes copyright muster anywhere in Wikipedia it's OK to publish it anywhere in Wikipedia.

To quote Copyright Law of the United States of America - Title 17, U. S. Code:

"§ 120 . Scope of exclusive rights in architectural works63
(a) Pictorial Representations Permitted.—The copyright in an architectural work that has been constructed does not include the right to prevent the making, distributing, or public display of pictures, paintings, photographs, or other pictorial representations of the work, if the building in which the work is embodied is located in or ordinarily visible from a public place."

Are you alleging a violation of the sculptor's copyright of his sculpture, or are you alleging that Scottdoesntknow is passing off someone else's Portlandia photograph as his or her own? Since Scottdoesntknow in the Portland article appears merely to have been linking to Sreejithk2000's photograph used with Wikipedia's Portlandia article and not claiming the photograph as his own, I really don't see an attribution problem here.

You cannot object to anyone else's publication of (nor claim royalties from) an unadulterated, non-disparaging non-commercial photo that is the photographer's own work and is of an item or phenomenon plainly visible to the public. One cannot copyright the public's view regardless of any artist's claim to objects in that view.

Furthermore, copyright law in the U. S. is a civil matter requiring the copyright owner to prove how he or she has been damaged by any violation of his or her copyright. In the case of publication for non-commercial purposes of an unadulterated photograph of a work on public display, that would be damn near impossible to do. BLZebubba (talk) 15:14, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

I am a copyright attorney and know all about copyrights, but you clearly do not. The problem is, you don't understand Wikipedia's policies nor apparently Wikimedia Commons' policies regarding what is a fair use photo. In fact, since you are quoting as to an architectural work you clearly do not understand that under copyright law a statue is not an architectural work (there is some argument as to if a work is physically integrated into a structure, which is not the case with this statue), see §101):
An “architectural work” is the design of a building as embodied in any tangible medium of expression, including a building, architectural plans, or drawings.

As in, this photograph of a sculpture would infringe on the Portlandia statue sculptors' copyright (see also Portlandia (statue)#Copyright).

C Rating Anne Walter Fearn[edit]

Ref Anne Walter Fearn. You appear to have given this article a C rating on the quality scale. If you would explain the reasons I will try to improve it against the criteria detailed in the WikiProject Biography/Assessment for that rating. I apologise if this C rating was done by someone else, but it appears to have been your edit.

Thank you

Sidpickle (talk) 15:28, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

There are several things that standout. First, your WP:LEDE does not properly summarize the article, and only consists of a single sentence for an article with nine main sections. As to the sections, we frown upon single paragraph sections. One or two as an exception would be fine, but I think five are here. Try to consolidate, and try to use more generic titles to match what we do in biographies (such as early life, career, later life). With the amount of text, I would guess about five sections (maybe a sub-section or two in some) would suffice. Not really a big factor as to getting to B class, but try not to start too many paragraphs and sentences with "In 19XX" as it tends to make it look like a timeline, for example instead of "In 1914 the Fearn’s started another trip, this time across China to Russia..." go with "The Fearns started another trip in 1914, this time across China to Russia..." (not there is also a typo in the original of Fearn's, where there would not be an apostrophe. Lastly, for the references, see WP:CITE to combine the identical references using the <ref name="citation name"> parameter. Also, for the one instance where you put in distance, use {{convert|60|mi|km}} so those who use metric will see a distance they can relate to, 60 miles (97 km). Lastly, it needs a brief copyedit, as there is at least one instance of a space before the footnote, a Dr Polk instead of Dr. Polk, and we avoid many abbreviations, such as USA. But the small lede is the biggest issue. Aboutmovies (talk) 23:32, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the update. Fearn was a pioneer and an inspiration to many female doctors who followed. My version tells her story and if I had not spent weeks researching her life and obtaining reference books and materials her tale would not have been told. So I'll leave it to someone better than me to re-edit. I think this rating system is demotivating for editors who are trying to write accurate articles about people who did make a difference - especially when there are so many inaccurate works on Wikipedia that should be getting attention. I am not against criticism when it comes to editing because any author knows that work should be reviewed before it is published because punctuation does get missed and spelling errors do occur. However the current system is like being at school again - "should try harder" and appears to be subjective. I keep referring back to Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Assessment to see where I went wrong and cannot connect your comments to the guidance given in this.
OK, so I've had my moan, I'm trying to get together information on the next project and will remember your comments when writing it.
Thanks - Ted Sidpickle (talk) 07:34, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
First, if you are editing for the rating, then you are editing for the wrong reason. I have written hundreds of articles and will often disagree with the assessment. As to the criteria, the problem is that most of the criteria is not really on that page, but there are links to the criteria (mostly after you click on the show for the detailed criteria in the chart). And yes, every rating system is subjective, whether it be in how it is executed or in the design of the criteria. Lastly, you will win no friends on Wikipedia if you disparage the accuracy, as that is an antiquated notion that is no longer really a concern. Aboutmovies (talk) 07:58, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Wendy Red Star[edit]

Hi again AM,

Would you be willing to review a rationale I wrote for the image I uploaded at File:WendyRedStar.jpg?

Here's what I'm struggling with: WP's policy on portraits for bios of living people indicates fair use is not appropriate. However, most of Red Star's art photographs qualify as self-portraits. I'm hoping you can enlighten me, as I have lost enough sleep over this to be fighting off early-onset dementia. I hold your opinion in high esteem, especially since your Skype talk on Saturday! − Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 16:57, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for your response. So if I take a picture of the image with my cell phone, that "transforms" it? But it sounds like the image of a living person is not okay under fair use, so maybe just ask for it to be deleted? ``Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 22:56, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
Taking a picture of the picture does not transform it. If you used your cell phone to take a picture of the artist and the doll (as in they are standing in front of you, well not the doll), then no copyright issue as the picture (potentially for the doll). Otherwise, correct, you almost never can use fair use for a picture of a living person. Best to have that image deleted. Aboutmovies (talk) 23:13, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Thank You for Assessing Bank of America, N. A. v. Caulkett: Advice on Improving the Article's Quality?[edit]

Thank you for your assessment of Bank of America, N. A. v. Caulkett—my first attempt at creating a Wikipedia article. Having created my first Wikipedia article, I now want to make that article the best that it can be, and I was hoping that you could advise me on how I might improve it. I'm planning to expand the article's current "Opinion of the Court" section into a broader "Supreme Court" section; there, I'd like to add a summary of (1) each party's respective argument(s) in the Supreme Court; and (2) the oral argument in the case. I think that the addition of those summaries would about round out the article, content-wise. If you have additional suggestions for how I might improve the article, I would gladly welcome them. Thank you! Best, -- Passerculus90 (talk) 17:00, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

The biggest issue right now is almost all of your sourcing is to case law and statutes, or in other words primary sources. The problem with that is you are interpreting these, not a secondary source. A good legal article uses both. See these cases for featured articles you can use as good examples. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:25, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi,

I wonder where you see | playoff_appearances = parameter listed? Because I can't find it at Template:Infobox basketball club or at Template:Infobox basketball club/doc. I suppose there's a reason this parameter is not used anywhere, so I guess this will have to go here or here. – Sabbatino (talk) 11:35, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

See the screenshot. Did you try editing the actual template and then CTL + F? Also, it is disingenuous to say it is not used anywhere when you also removed it from other NBA articles. [1][2]. Those are just the first two articles I went to, so I will assume you did this on all of them. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:34, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
None of the articles used that parameter until that IP user decided to add it to articles. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:46, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
You also failed to tell me where to find it, because I couldn't. And that screenshot doesn't really tell me anything as I want to see all the parameters. So a direct link would be nice. Nevermind. Found it myself. – Sabbatino (talk) 17:49, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Project assessment[edit]

Just a quick hint, but, because the class rating of articles is the same for all projects, except for a very few that don't use a particular rating, you can add the same class rating for all the project assessment banners when doing any other. You could have done it here. Then there is less for others to do later on. Anyway thanks for the work. ww2censor (talk) 10:34, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

I've been doing assessments for nearly a decade, and while I agree that the ratings should be uniform, in practice I have come across instances where some projects did not agree with me. There have been arguments that the class could actually differ between projects. Thus, I only apply the rating to WikiProjects that I am a part of. Aboutmovies (talk) 10:39, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

That registration info is from 1985, not from the original filing. The SOS updates that info each time. If this was a newer corporation you would be able to click onto the articles of incorporation. Not to mention, being president does not mean you are a founder, let alone the only founder. All of the literature I have see (specifically say the cited reliable sources) say co-founder. Perhaps find an old SEC filing that talks about the history, but that screen shot from the SOS does not say what you want it to say. Aboutmovies (talk) 17:46, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Interview invitation from a Wikipedia researcher in University of Minnesota[edit]

Hello Aboutmovies,

I am Bowen Yu, a Ph.D. student from GroupLens Research at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Currently, we are undertaking a study about turnover (editors leaving and joining) in WikiProjects within Wikipedia. We are trying to understand the effects of member turnovers in the WikiProject group, in terms of the group performance and member interaction, with a purpose of learning how to build successful online communities in future. More details about our project can be found on this meta-wiki page.

I would like to invite you for an interview if you are interested in our study and willing to share your experience with us. The interview will be about 30 - 45 minutes via either Skype or Google Hangout. You will receive a $10 gift card as compensation afterwards.

Please reach me at bowen@cs.umn.edu if you are interested or have any questions.

Thank you,

Copyright on photos before 1923 in US[edit]

Hi, again, Aboutmovies,

I'm curious about the copyright status of photos from before 1923 that have been published in digitized museum collections. For example, the Lane County Museum has an archive of photos that have been watermarked with the museum name, implying the Museum holds copyright, even on photos taken before 1923. So does US copyright law on antique photos refer to the date a photo is first published (in this case published in this century by the Museum in digital form), or the date the photo was originally taken?

Thanks for your advice. Also, thanks for all your work assessing new articles! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 22:19, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

US copyright is all (or almost all) based upon the date of publication, not creation. Many museums take in the physical photographs via donations and then think they own the copyrights, or like in your query, are claiming copyright to items that are no longer in copyright.

Talk:Arthur Honeyman[edit]

Hi. You left a class=C notification at Talk:Arthur Honeyman. Could you please let me know where this has been discussed? (I couldn#t find any discussion about this article. I would like to learn which areas for improvement have specifically been identified. Thank you. --Martina Nolte talk 03:23, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

It was not discussed. Assessments are not discussed or consulted on, unless it is via a formal process for GA or FA status. If you want tips for improving it, here they are: Footnote 7 is a bare reference; footnote 3 lacks an access date; the EL section should be removed as if an EL is used as a source it does not go into an EL section; the W:LEDE section should be expanded; then overall it needs expansion, for instance his date of birth and date of death are missing as are the years as to the moves; lastly the career section jumps around instead of chronological order which gets confusing. Otherwise, it is a nice start to the article. Aboutmovies (talk) 18:16, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
The WikiProject Oregon template seemed like that was a somehow objective judgement but it's rather your subjective opinion dropped within a minute in a 45 aracter template. I usually only do this to obvious marketing accounts that I want lo better leave the project anyway. Is this standard prcedure and standard tone around here, or is it just your style of treating fellows? I am Wikipedian since a while - pretty exactly 11 years - but I don't think that anyone aver commented that dismissively about any of my contributions. --Martina Nolte talk 03:20, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Your English is a bit hard to follow, so what exactly is your complaint about; the initial assessment rating on the talk page, or the notes above? If it is the initial assessment, a quick initial rating is quite standard, if even ever assessed. In my over 10 years of editing and likely close to 100,000 assessments, most do go quickly and come down to the simple Stub, Start, C, or B class rating (anything above those four requires a special process). If your issue is as to the brief synopsis of issues, what you get above is far more than than most assessments, unless of course you go through the formal process of GA/FA. We simply do not have time to write a treatise on every assessment, especially when there are obvious issues and, it is just a rating (You can request a new one here). Roughly 10% of articles are unassessed, meaning well over 500k still need assessment, thus time is of the essence. Aboutmovies (talk) 03:31, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Come on, just a rating. You would not feel like being under time pressure if those ratings weren't important to anybody. And it is also not just a rating for someone whose effort has been rated. I don't know how much time you invest into writing a new article. I try to find and doublecheck independent sources. That takes a while. Especially, as English is my second language. I am not a high-end author, never will be, in any language. But I usually do a decent job when redacting, expanding exiisting articles, or when starting new articles. Sometimes I even get a little thank you from someone. I never expect that but it's nice if it happens. Your slap in the face was the opposite, and your explanations above are not helping. "If you want tips for improving it, here they are" says it all.
Do you read what people get in their face? "The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains much irrelevant material. The article should have some references to reliable sources, but may still have significant problems or require substantial cleanup." Wow, I didn't know I was that bad.
Sorry for writing a poor article. Sorry for my poor English. Sorry for wasting your time. Sorry for being ungrateful and for wanting to understand how and why my contribution has been belittled the way you did that.
What happened to the good old Wikipedia style of co-authoring articles? Fixing minor formal "mistakes", like those you listed is no longer en vogue? What happened to the good old Wikipedia discussion pages where people used to talk to people and told them what they were missing. What happened to you, Aboutmovies?
I would call this a truly poor article - mostly copied from this primary source, promotional tone, dead links, a bare list of (few) publication titles, no dates, no ISBN. Now, I regret that I updated and expanded that article. I regret that I googled for more information on the guy's best buddy, and that I thought the available information about Art could make a decent new article. I am sorry, I regret all this. --Martina Nolte talk 06:59, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
We are all volunteers here, and how we choose to spend our time is up to us. I spend a lot of time giving an initial assessments to articles, as the backlog on BIO articles is huge. I simply do not have the time to take 20 minutes to fix every error or provide an essay on how to make each article better. I often take the time to bold the title, fix quick formatting errors, and add missing categories. But I have my own business where I have to make money to feed my family, so I cannot spend all day on Wikipedia.
Also, FYI, most initial assessments are stub or Start class, few even get to C, and very few get to B. You should be happy you got C class, as they only thing higher is B. So, you have to compare your work to B class articles, and it is not yet there. It is not a bad article, just not B class. I have many articles that are only start or C class, and in fact there is one that will likely only ever be a C class at most because there just is not enough source material to meet the B class criteria. Don't regret contributing to Wikipedia, but perhaps understand it is just a rating, and if you are here for the ratings, then re-consider why you are here. I get my satisfaction from look at the page view statistics for the articles I started, seeing how many people have viewed them. Not some somewhat arbitrary assessment. Aboutmovies (talk) 18:54, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
I think I said above that I do not expect any thanks or even formal acknowledgements. But, anyway, I think I understood your point. Thanks for your time. --Martina Nolte talk 02:43, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center (RADC)[edit]

Hi Aboutmovies,

I wrote the RADC article.

I don't think the category Universities is accurate. The RADC is a research facility located in a medical center (the University is the teaching component and has nothing to do with the research or researchers at the RADC, who do not interact with students at all).

References to scientific research, alzheimer's centers in US, US government sponsored research (NIH/NIA), and religious orders (like School Sisters Notre Dame referenced in the Nun Study article) is much more useful.

Thanks for your thoughts!

ROSMAP67.184.49.141 (talk) 15:02, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

The RADC's website is on the rush.edu website, so, there is a connection. Just because they do not interact with students does not mean there is not a connection, or that being in that category implies it is an academic part of the school. That cat, or similar ones, just shows there is a connection, and given the name there is a connection. Aboutmovies (talk) 18:59, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Ralph Deleon[edit]

In late November an edit was made by this editor, rating the article Ralph Deleon a quality of C. What important content is missing from this article? Does the article need substantial clean up or have significant problems? If so, what are they? What parts of B quality are missing?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 05:46, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

The early life is very short, which covers approximately 20 years of his life, while the other section covers only a few years. For instance: When (date) and where (city, not just province) was he born; who are his parents; where in the US did he move; which Ontario HS (I know it links to t he presumably correct one, but it needs to be spelled). Then, a good copy edit, "but had withdrew from the university" should be withdrawn to match the tense of had. It is not far from being B class, but needs some additions. Aboutmovies (talk) 19:24, 17 December 2016 (UTC)
@Aboutmovies: Unfortunately, the weight of reliable sources does not provide significant information about the years that subject of that article was a minor, whether that was in the Philippines or the United States. That said, it is true that article improvement never ends, and thanks for the critiques. Perhaps some assistance in improvement would be appreciated.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:36, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

Your ratings[edit]

I appreciate your work patrolling new articles, but I've noticed you almost always rate mine "Start class". The latest is Ethan Siegel. I know it's not beautiful prose, but please check the Start class criteria - I see you're using User:Kephir/gadgets/rater and it may be misleading. Start class suggests major referencing issues (few reliable sources), poor spelling and grammar, obvious incompleteness, lack of use of MoS, unencyclopedic tone - and I don't think that's fair for most of my new articles or for this one. I can write just fine (bar the occasional typo), I aim to be pretty exhaustive in finding online sources, I try to use reliable sources, avoid unverified content, use inline cites for every fact, and I add wikilinks and categories (thanks for adding one!) I can see completeness might keep this from B-class and I often skip infoboxes, but I think it meets C-class. Please consider more C-class ratings. Thanks. Fences&Windows 18:33, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

I actually do not patrol new articles. I assess lots of articles, have been doing it for more than a decade, and have done probably around 100,000 of them. So, I am well aware of the criteria. Here, your article has one whole sentence about the person's "early life" or about 20 years, which is roughly half their life. This is a biography, meaning an article is about the person and not just what is notable. That means it is not "substantial" and thus does not meet C class. Now, since I get this comment/argument all the time (see prior comments above yours) is that all the RS out their have been mined and that is all there is. That may well be true, but that does not mean this article is then B class or even FA. There are plenty of articles out there that will only ever be a stub because the person lived 4000 years ago and all we have is all we will ever have. A good example that I point to is David Hill (Oregon politician) which was I believe my first article. I have exhausted all available sources and it is as complete as it can be based on currently available RS, but it should only be a start class article due to it lacking a lot of information about his life (I note it was raised to C class, but I had nothing to do with that decision). That rating has no reflection upon my writing abilities (though there are now some reference errors as the templates have changed over the years), and everything to do with the available information. So, if you want C class, find more on the first half of their life, such as who were his parents, siblings, etc. Then, clean up the bare URLs used as ELs and a ref.

How to make an article good[edit]

Aboutmovies,

I came upon your user page via your recent edit of William Barton Rogers. I like your attitude toward WP, as evidenced in your Wikiterpretation™s. I'd like your advice. I don't edit an enormous amount, but I pay a good deal of attention to those articles I do edit. The most important article I edit is Frederick Douglass, and I mostly stick to the sections on his early life and the lede. (I live 2-3 miles from the site of his grandmother's cabin, where he was probably born.)

The article is long, and rambling, and frequently the target of editors with a particular agenda (and then there are the edit wars over what year he was born, which he did not know, and of which there is no record). The article is currently rated B-class and a level-4 vital article. I would like to move it toward being a good article, but the task is a bit overwhelming (as is, currently, my personal life). Any suggestions you would have as to how to approach this goal, and how to break it up into small, manageable pieces I could tackle in an hour or three each weekend would be, by me, greatly appreciated. Paulmlieberman (talk) 18:03, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Paul, I would start with reviewing WP:WIAGA. Then, as to the article itself, here are a few areas I can see improvement without an in-depth review:
  1. Citations/footnotes: Clean them up to eliminate a few errors and to ensure full, consistent formatting.
  2. External links/further reading: Way too many. First, see WP:ELNO to see which ones can be outright removed, such as any used as sources. Then if there are still too many, discuss it on the talk page.
  3. In arts and literature/Legacy and honors: Prose is preferred to lists, so turn it into a paragraph, and likely remove unsourced items.
A lot of the rest is likely stylistic choices as to how to approach the topic, as in what order. After addressing the above, try submitting it to the league of copyeditors for a review. Good luck. Aboutmovies (talk) 20:05, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I am Tom Sullivan with this Wiki page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Sullivan_(politician). Recently the page has been changed to make me look quite unfavorable and all of the information from the campaign of 2010 has been removed. I noticed that you had helped on the page back in 2012.

Catherine Alderton[edit]

Hi. You recently assessed the above article as 'C'. I am familiar with the project quality guidelines. I would like to know in what way you assess the article's shortcomings and how you think it could be improved. Graemp (talk) 20:30, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Not to sound too rough, but it is on the low side of C class. Items to locate and add: Where was she born, as in city (or village); when was she born not just year; who was her mother; any siblings; what was the name of her son and years of life for him; and that just covers the very short background info. The lede also would need to be expanded.
That then takes us to the footnotes, which need a lot of work. Most are woefully incomplete to allow someone to find the info (author info, page numbers, article titles, etc.), and we do not repeat the same citation over and over. Instead, name the ref and use it in that manner so that one such as " The Essex Review, 1951" is listed just once, but used four times. Hope that helps.

I may or may not have access to the information, but I have zero motivation to look for it. Of course, I get the feeling your point is more of you don't have it and don't think it is important to have, thus why would that effect the rating? For the most part, those items are not notable, but this is a biography, so you need them to have a complete bio.

Hi again, AM,

Well, I think have identified the wrong copyright license tag while uploading 5 images of artwork created by Amanda Snyder. Portland Art Museum has many of her works available in their Online Collections with the notice, "No known copyright restrictions". Using the Commons Upload Wizard, I thought the correct license was the CC0, but I now think that was an error, and I need a template specific to the Portland Art Museum, like the ones in this category. Can you enlighten me, please? Cheers! — Grand'mere Eugene (talk) 16:22, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Other than uploading pictures, I'm not that involved in Commons, so I am not sure how to create templates at Commons. It may be as easy as Wikipedia, but I just don't create them there.
