If you haven't contributed yet, we would appreciate you taking the time to add entries to our articles achievements list by the end of the month. Thank you, and if participating, good luck with the finale!

re: Fontina[edit]

Thank you for the explanation. In case you have not followed the relevant discussion, this user is not a vandal. That term refers to a specific type of user who causes damage on purpose. Please remember to WP:AGF. The user here is a student in a educational project trying to constructively contribute to Wikipedia. She is sadly hampered by poor grammar and vocabulary skills, due to being an ESL. A more constructive approach, rather than just revert her and calling her a vandal, would be to proofread her edits (some content is useful, and well referenced) and report mistakes she does on her talk page, so she can understand why were are unhappy with some of her edits. PS. On second thought, I now agree with you that the crude oil part is nonsense and there is little to rescue from the source cited, so I am not going to restore anything there again. But I stand by my earlier comments - the errors you spotted are the result of poor English skills, not intentional vandalism. I pointed several examples on her talk page, feel free to add more. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:52, 1 May 2018 (UTC)


A request... :)[edit]

Hi! I noticed you edit a lot of Italian/geography articles from WikiProject: Italy I've been working on improving Lago di Bientina a large (now-drained) lake in Tuscany, but I'm still pretty new to Wikipedia and am not exactly confident in my work. It started out as one sentence and I've added a lot over the last few days. If you could take a look and give me some guidance, tips, or pointers, that would be awesome, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks! Ganesha811 (talk) 13:33, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Enrico_Fermi talk[edit]

I will enrich you a bit: ;-)

  1. "myself" in "I felt myself enriched" is completely unnecessary.
  2. "smaller vocabulary" is much more common than "narrower vocabulary"

PS. The Simple English Wikipedia doesn't seem like a good alternative to me.
