Charlemagne Tower[edit]

That's pretty much what I figured after seeing your latest changes. Did you check all the "what links here" articles to see which Tower they're supposed to link to? I don't know enough about the men to know the answers to that question. Thanks.--Appraiser (talk) 14:36, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Fair Use for that photo is a little dicey. I've worked some on the List of Minnesota Governors and pictures of state governors have been deleted, even though no free alternative is known to exist. But since Tower died in 1889, we're pretty close to the point where we can claim that the photographer has been dead 70 years. I've been using that claim on every image that is pre-1875 or so without any problems (see Image:Stpaulboats.jpg). Since we have editors hell-bent on deleting images, the Tower one may not pass scrutiny, but you might try the "author life plus 70-years" tag.--Appraiser (talk) 15:04, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Hello, I contributed some to the earlier Charlemagne Tower pages, and then somehow the whole thing got rolled together with that of his son, Charlemagne Jr. In any case, thanks for helping straighten that page out!MarmadukePercy (talk) 22:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Bowie60, thanks for your note in response to my assessment of the Charlemagne Tower article. Regarding specific suggestions - I will try to take a look in the next few days, and see if I have any for you - although I am hoping that someone who is experienced in peer reviews will respond to your request to give the article an official peer review. The B-class assessment is (as I understand it), mostly dependent upon components that are present in the article (sufficient amount of text, separate sections, references, categories, image if applicable, etc.), and IMO there was no question that the article merits a B-class with the work you've put into it. To get a higher assessment requires the peer review, and unfortunately, I haven't ever done any of those, nor have participated in an editorial effort that resulted in getting an article to Good-Article or higher class.
Thanks for your good contributions to Wikipedia by putting so much work into the Tower article and in the other ways in which you help out! --Lini (talk) 22:29, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Nice work on the Tower page, Keith. I tinkered with the genealogy section a tiny bit. The page looks great. Take care and regards,MarmadukePercy (talk) 18:47, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Great work on the article! As someone who is experienced in producing WP:GA and WP:FL content, I would recommend using inline citations for your references if you desire for this biography to be designated a "good article". See WP:Citing sources for more details. But keep it up, you are on the right track! Cheers! RyguyMN (talk) 04:32, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

The start on those inline citations looks good. Welcome back. Cheers,MarmadukePercy (talk) 06:12, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
