Hi Accurizer! I'm the Wikipedian In Residence at the World Digital Library, a project of the Library of Congress and UNESCO. I'm recruiting Wikipedians who are passionate about history & culture to participate in improving Wikipedia using the WDL's vast free online resources. Participants can earn our awesome WDL barnstar and help to disseminate free knowledge from over 100 libraries in 7 different languages. Multilingual editing encouraged!!! But being multilingual is not a necessity to make this project a success. Please sign up to participate here. Thanks for editing Wikipedia and I look forward to working with you!

Hey Accurizer

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Template:Caesars Entertainment[edit]

The problem is the casino was effectively folded into another casino. If the name is still used, then it should be in the current list. If the name was retired then it should be were I moved it. In either case, deletion from the template is simply inappropriate. Vegaswikian (talk) 00:48, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Frank J. Dodd, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Neptune, New Jersey (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

New Jersey gubernatorial candidates[edit]

Great category in "New Jersey gubernatorial candidates", thanks. Are you going to do the same for the "New Jersey Senate candidates" and "New Jersey mayoral candidates"? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 22:11, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Mary Baker Eddy[edit]

Hi, I really appreciate your courtesy in consulting me on whether she was a hypochondriac. The latest major biography of her by Gillian Gill, makes it quite clear (page 42) that all three Baker girls suffered from severe illnesses throughout their childhood and young adulthood, which required intervention by physicians.
The accounts that episodes of Mary's "hysteria" reported by Milmine corresponded to these illnesses are also discredited (page 41).
In the interests of accuracy, I would like my edit to stand. Bblandford (talk) 23:44, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Gabriella Ricca[edit]

Under Notable People in Hammonton, New Jersey you removed Gabriella Ricca by stating “Gabriella Ricca, does not appear to satisfy Wikipedia:Notability_(sports)#Gymnastics, page redirected” I took the honor of the World Champion, as she was recognized by the town of Hammonton, and added her under Events. As she was recognized and notable by the town of Hammonton, she would be considered mentioned under Community. If it’s another category under Community, then please add her to the right one. Her page was removed. Why was this page removed? She is noted from many sources of the media and her page should be recovered since it’s not under Wikipedia:Notability. Please reply. Respectfully thank you. Georgivac (talk)

Hi Accurizer, I haven’t had a reply from you so I did notice as you stated Gabriella Ricca does not meet Wikipedia’s WP:NGYMNASTICS, However she does meet Wikipedia’s WP:GNG as some following links with a few multiple articles of in depth coverage to satisfy for her page to be brought back. She is eligible through WP:GNG. The articles mentioned are not press releases. The articles are verifiable as they are published works from the media and other sources that’s required.

There is one article released through many of USA Today’s papers throughout the USA (Nationally) at that time, as they can now be found on their online website under Gymnastics. She was featured in the sports section for it. Her photo’s are provided in the article. There are many more that I don’t need to keep providing. This is probably used as one (1) verifiable article/source.

The Wisconsinrapidstribune.com - (Scroll down to Hammonton girl adjusts, wins gymnastics title as you will find it again) http://www.wisconsinrapidstribune.com/topic/b07264cc-172c-4ddf-acca-50b860a5cc76/gymnastics/

The Courierpostonline.com - goes directly to the page http://www.courierpostonline.com/story/sports/2014/07/27/hammonton-girl-adjusts-wins-gymnastics-title/13251325/

The list goes on throughout the USA for this article. All valid and verifiable as it shows

The following from the pressofatlanticcity.com would be the Second (2nd) verifiable article/source.

The pressofatlanticcity.com features her in their article under Everyone Has a Story: Ex-wrestler dad helped young gymnast grapple with fear http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/blogs/michelle_post/everyone-has-a-story-ex-wrestler-dad-helped-young-gymnast/article_188e0bb2-0afb-11e4-b3dd-0019bb2963f4.html

Some of the above links are already provided on Tony Ricca’s

The Hammonton Gazette Article - A Third (3rd) verifiable article/source. The Hammonton Gazette 07/09/14 Edition - Page 69 - Joomag https://www.joomag.com/...hammonton.../0557493001404911143?... Jul 9, 2014 - arena honored for success Gabriella ricca wins gymnastics titles Wednesday, July 9, 2014 • The Hammonton Gazette • Page 57 by dan ...

The Hammonton News featured her in their paper but it’s not online. A copy can be provided if necessary. This would be another verifiable Article/Source.

There’s an online article on The Pharaoh (Tony Ricca), Gabriella Ricca’s father which mentions her accomplishments in that article. If you need this please ask.

The following link is from a website called america.pink. http://america.pink/gabriella-ricca_1653713.html

The following website is a live scoring system that documents athletic events. Here’s where she can be found for her World Championship Scores. This is very valid as it is a scoring system for athletes and should be considered at least a Fourth (4th) verifiable source. http://www.meetscoresonline.com/2014-FL-USAIGC-IAIGC-World-Championships - Click Meet Results and scroll down to Session: 3 Level: CO Division: 12 yrs Click PDF - She’s also in the Top Scores Bracket.

Please advise as to adding back the page Gabriella Ricca. Two of what I provided is considered multiple sources (that’s debatable if you don’t consider that). So I’ve produced more to show more sources that constitutes a multiple amount of them. She should now meet the requirements through WP:GNG from the above mentioned provided.

I took my time to provide the necessary information that would be needed to show the validation of her through WP:GNG. I look forward to your consideration for the above to place her back on her own page. Please reply with any additional information that may be needed or please point me to talk with a higher editor regarding this. It would be much appreciated. I was told that this was enough to put her back up. Thank you very much Georgivac (talk)

Hi Accurizer. Just a couple of notes here. Before that here's another multiple source, well established, that's online from the Town of Hammonton giving her recognition for her World Championship win. It is online at the following link http://livestream.com/Hammonton/events/3326659 as it was live on Television then. It can be seen just under seven minutes into the Town of Hammonton Meeting or you can watch the meeting in it's entirety to show the validity of it from the Town of Hammonton. Under community they have Wineries and Alcohol Consumption. There is one article mentioning the wineries listed. The Theatre listed has one article by the Press of Atlantic City (same person that wrote the article for Gabriella Ricca). Gabriella has many, should she have her own under community. She may be one person but she is part of the Community as you look at Popular Culture there is a single person that's mentioned in it. You're quote " There is now more about Gabriella in the Hammonton article than San Mateo, California has about Tom Brady". Your statement and it should hold true for this as well. Stating facts here and there are no substitutes for them as the guidelines are clear about them. Should these be present on it as many other establishments have had articles and are not shared under Community? This would be biased as one person is singled out. The guidelines are clear as she has multiple articles and I understand there is another one featuring her again. Is that not enough? Again, according to WP:GNG, she has multiple sources to identify her as she had her own page. She has another feature as mentioned. I am looking to help Wikipedia maintain its integrity to follow the guidelines properly that's fact based. Gabriella Ricca has multiple sources and your denying her of her own page. She is believed to be in the WP:GNG guidelines by a Wikipedia contributor which validates her sources. As with the wineries that have one source and stay standing, her multiple sources don't count for you. I'm very disappointed but stay respectful as one should. If you can shed some information on what I had mentioned that would be much appreciated. I would kindly ask you to have her own page placed back stating the guidelines. As for the Community, like the wineries, many more that have their own place in the community that have articles about them should be inserted, should they not? Thank you Georgivac (talk) 21:34, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Actually that is not what Wikipedia is for....if the person is notable, write an article...if he isn't, don't add him to the disambiguition page. Lectonar (talk) 15:58, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Is it ok if I mail it to you? Give me some time, though...I will be back online tomorrow. Cheers.Lectonar (talk) 16:51, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
I have mailed it to you; imho, this is typical of a WP:BLP1E. Cheers. Lectonar (talk) 21:09, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Proper categorization[edit]

It is consensus that for a Person to be from Foo has to either been born or lived in Foo. Things that don't qualify someone from being from Foo

  • - Place of death unless that was their home at the time.
  • - Where they are buried. Is JFK from Arlington Virginia just because he is buried there?
  • - Graduates from a school located in Foo.
  • - Playing for a sports team located in Foo.

None of these qualify a person as being from Foo. Therefore sports team players and people buried in XYZ cemetery categories are not categorized 'People from Foo'. Look at Category:Sportspeople by city in the United States do you see other cities with their sports team categories as subcategories of Sportspeople from Foo?...William, is the complaint department really on the roof? 11:09, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

@WilliamJE: Can you point to a discussion that established this consensus? Thanks, Accurizer (talk) 12:07, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
