{{helpme}} - I have a question concerning rating an article. I noticed on one page that I watch that a particular editor changed the rating to the article. I don't know if it was assessed or not, or whether the assessment was even called for. The article is Cajundome. Are editors allowed to arbitrarily change the articles rating/grading without someone else assessing the page?

Hi, the criteria for each assessment level are here. Interpretation of the criteria is generally left up to editorial judgement. If you disagree with a rating, you can discuss it with the editor who rated it or ask at the talk page of the relevant wikiproject. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:01, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

{{helpme}} - I see an article with a blatant copyright violation. How should I tag it and what template should I use? CTtcg (talk) 19:54, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Tag it with {{db-copyvio|url=source URL}} then notify creator with {{subst:Nothanks-sd|pg=PAGENAME|url=SOURCEURL}}. mono 20:00, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

I think the Lake Charles article is not yet ready for B Class because of referencing and other issues per WP:1.0/B. Regards Hekerui (talk) 10:35, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Okay well I have worked on it some more. I'm new to editing but thought this article could use some.

Thanks for contributing. Please always make sure to put talk page messages at the bottom of a talk page and sign your messages with ~~~~ so your comment links to you and has a timestamp. I saw you added cited info, which is good. To further improve the article you could add content that's in books (but not copy from books but reformulate in your own words to a degree that no one can say you copied) and then cite the info with an inline citation. All information that's added should exist in some form somewhere else, original research is not Wikipedia's purpose. For a summary please check out Wikipedia:Simplified ruleset and you'll make the article much better with some work in no time. A very easy way to know how an article should look like is to compare it to an existing city article that was rated as a good or featured article (see Category:FA-Class WikiProject Cities articles or Category:GA-Class WikiProject Cities articles) - comparison is how I learned to write better articles :) Hekerui (talk) 09:28, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Campus Ambassadors wanted at LSU[edit]

Hi! I'm leaving you this message because you are listed as a Wikipedian in Louisiana. The Wikipedia Ambassador Program is currently looking for Campus Ambassadors to help with Wikipedia assignments at Louisiana State University, which will be participating in the Public Policy Initiative for the Spring 2011 semester. The role of Campus Ambassadors will be to provide face-to-face training and support for students on Wikipedia-related skills (how to edit articles, how to add references, etc.). This includes doing in-class presentations, running workshops and labs, possibly holding office hours, and in general providing in-person mentorship for students.

Prior Wikipedia skills are not required for the role, as training will be provided for all Campus Ambassadors (although, of course, being an experienced editor is a plus).

If you live near Baton Rouge and you are interested in being a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador, or know someone else from the area who might be, please email me or leave a message on my talk page.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 17:09, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Lake Charles, Louisiana[edit]

Thanks for your message. The article needed a bit of TLC. Glad you're making so many great edits. I added the bit about it being one of the two most humid places in the United States. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:55, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Lake Charles pic[edit]

Hey there. Yes, it's an interesting picture, part of the DOCUMERICA series. There were a few of them [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. These really are a part of the city's history, and the pictures are classics. Please have a look at them. The caption is right off the picture. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 15:34, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks! Magnolia677 (talk) 16:21, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't see your edit to the picture placements. I just updated the Prien Lake article and wanted to add something about the cleanup efforts. Feel free to move the pics back. Thanks again! Magnolia677 (talk) 16:44, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.
