You have new message/s Hello. You have a new message at GorillaWarfare's talk page. Message added 18:36, 29 December 2013 (UTC).

I think this music school is clearly notable. Svenska Dagbladet says "Flickkören är en av världens främsta ungdomskörer" translating "The girl's choir is one of the leading youth choirs in the world" in a portrait of the long time conductor. Dagens Nyheter names the record Härlig är jorden with Håkan Hagegård och Adolf Fredriks Bachkör as one of the finest christmas album ever. There is an article on the boy's choir here, focusing on the choir not mastering Mahler good enough so Wiener Sängerknaben had to be called in instead. It refers to Adolf Fredrik as Sweden's most famous music school. Iselilja (talk) 19:58, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Hello Andersneld, you can call me 74, your name came up over on Yngvadottir's page. Do you want some assistance trimming down the article on Fredrik's school, so we can get it into mainspace? I can probably be of some help, if you like. It is hard to write neutrally without WP:EDITORIALIZING when you are close to the subject. I can also show you some footnote-tricks that will separate out the WP:ABOUTSELF cites from the independent third-party refs. Please leave me a note on my talkpage, with how you would like to proceed; I'm happy to give "back seat driver" advice and let you edit the article, or I can dive in and start adjusting it while you watch, or we can collaboratively edit simultaneously. I'm happy with whatever makes you comfy.  :-)   Thanks for improving wikipedia. (talk) 23:57, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I gave it a whirl. I'm only half-done, but I'm saving now, so that you can see what I'm doing. Any place where you cite the *school* for a fact, use the {{efn | name="foo" | {{cite web |url=baz |title=qux }} }} magic, which will put the URL into the notes section. For books and newspapers, use the normal <ref name="wikiReliableFoo">{{cite web |url=baz |title=qux}}</ref> syntax, which will put them into the references section (the part that proves wikiNotability). Make sense? You can ask me questions if you like, but WP:TEAHOUSE is probably the fastest way to get immediate answers to quick questions, if you get stuck on the syntax, or are not sure whether some particular website counts as a 'ref' or instead as a 'note' per WP:ABOUTSELF and/or WP:COI.

Terrific, I'll see what I can do in the way of improvements following your lead, and I'll revert to you when I think I'm done. One specific question though: References 5 and 6 are really two sides of the same thing ... should I condense them into one single reference? If so, how? Andersneld (talk) 21:16, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
There, I had a go and I think it looks a lot better now. Not so easy but i'm learning, slowly. Perhaps I have put too much inte the notes section, what do you think? Andersneld (talk) 08:14, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Katarina Karnéus[edit]

Hi Andersneld, I've accepted your draft and moved it into article space. You'll find it at Katarina Karnéus. It still needs some work and I've tagged it for issues that need improvement so that other editors can help out. I've also left a note re the discography section on Talk:Katarina Karnéus. Thank you very much for creating this article. I can't believe we did not have one on such a distinguished singer!

If you are interested in opera-related articles, do drop by WikiProject Opera. We are a group writing, editing, and maintaining Wikipedia articles on operas, opera terminology, opera composers and librettists, singers, designers, directors and managers, companies and houses, publications and recordings.

Best wishes, Voceditenore (talk) 18:56, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Vociditenore, I am glad you accepted my article :-) I'm not a seasoned Wikipedian so I'm not surprised that there are some issues. I'm trying to learn though.

Regarding the unclear citation style this is what I have tried to do: Books, newpapers and similar under References, other stuff under Notes. Please advice how I can be more clear.

Regarding copy editing for grammar, style, cohesion, tone, or spelling. Agreed. I'm not a native English speaker and not a very good writer in Swedish either for that matter, so any assistance from any quarter is much appreciated. Andersneld (talk) 19:38, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Well anything which is used to support a claim, including web pages, belongs as references. Notes should only be used for adding explanatory material, and they often require a reference as well. See Benjamin Britten for an example. However, with shorter articles, it's quite sufficient and less cumbersome to simply list note material as references using the standard <ref>Insert footnote text here</ref> format. See Eugène Caron for an example. Best, Voceditenore (talk) 10:11, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
OK, now corrected in the Katarina Karnéus article, could you please have a look to check that I have understood correctly?! Andersneld (talk) 10:44, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Kerstin Avemo[edit]

Hi Andersneld. I've moved your draft into article space and left suggestions for improvements at Talk:Kerstin Avemo. Note that you are an autoconfirmed user and can simply create articles directly in article space after drafting them in your user space. I strongly suggest you do that in future to avoid adding to the lengthy backlog (and creating extra work for the hard-pressed reviewers) at Articles for Creation which is basically meant for editors who are not autoconfirmed. Best wishes, Voceditenore (talk) 09:16, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I had no idea that I could add articles directly in article space. A question: Can I have more than one sandbox? If so, how do I create more sandboxes? Andersneld (talk) 09:30, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Hi. You can create as many as you like as long as they have different names, e.g. User:Andersneld/sandbox2, User:Andersneld/sandbox3, etc. Just click on the red link, add some text and click "save". You might want to add links to your extra sandboxes either on your user page or on your original sandbox (User:Andersneld/sandbox) so you can find them easily.
