Adopt me :)[edit]

Hi, I've been scrolling through the adoption section and your profile sounded interesting. I think you could be of great help.

There isn't much to say about me, but the bit that is, here it goes: 

I'm basically bringing my contribution to Wikipedia because I got overly curious one day and I've clicked that Edit button and things went out of control due to over excitement. I am at the moment preparing for admission to a PhD in fashion and I thought of channelling my topic on the contemporary costume of the Muslim woman aka, the modest fashion movement, and since I'm on it, I thought that researching and gathering the info from the internet would pair nicely with contributing to the knowledge basket, so here I am, taking two rabbits at a time. My research should contain info on Islam as a social movement, basically, why do Muslim women dress the way they do and which are the influences from various points of view, religious texts, social and economic contexts, practicability and cultural sensitivity. Ideally, while gathering all the right data, from the proper, verifiable sources, I should be able to create original content on the topic and educate others on what Muslim fashion is all about, on various educational platforms. Whether it is small or large, any input or help will be appreciated.

Loads of thanks!

Hello Maraal01 / Alice,
Sorry it took a bit to get back to you, I took a couple of days off. I would be happy to help out any way I could. Sounds very interesting! Did you want to start a new article?
You may be interested in joining one of the WP:Wikiprojects, like perhaps WP:WikiProject Fashion as an interesting way to find other like-minded people.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:45, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

About becoming an administrator - ORCP[edit]

Wikipedia needs you! Take the poll.

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia so far; they are very much appreciated. Your experience and tenure have been an asset to the project.

You should consider starting another poll in ~6 months to see what your chances are.

To receive feedback on your chances of successfully requesting administrative privileges, consider starting a poll:

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Optional RfA candidate poll

Thank you! J947(c) 22:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

LOL! Hi, Carole. I think this was a semi-canned invitation, without knowing your history. But I'm delighted to know you are on their radar, and I look forward to your next outing! --MelanieN (talk) 22:48, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I do know that she took an RfA recently. J947(c) 22:50, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
You do. OK, good. Maybe a little more personalized notice would have been appropriate, then, rather than "Have you ever thought of becoming an administrator?" I don't mean to be critical, I know that you and the others at the project are doing your best to recruit new admins. But as Carole will tell you, she is working on it and she has some nominators lined up, eager to help when she is ready to go again. --MelanieN (talk) 22:57, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for personalizing it! See you at her RfA! --MelanieN (talk) 23:15, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Maraal01, I have had a lot of personal life things going on in my life and haven't been online a lot lately... sorry it's taken awhile to get back to you.

Question about COI editing[edit]

Hey Carole, hope you're well. I was curious about where to draw the line when refraining from making a direct edit to an article I have a paid COI on. Generally, I abstain from doing so, especially with actual changes to the text, but there are instances such as this one where I've been encouraged to edit directly, or small wiki-code things, like this little edit. Would changes and fixes like these be generally acceptable? I realize that everyone is going to have a different answer, but I'd appreciate your opinion on the matter.--FacultiesIntact (talk) 01:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

FacultiesIntact, I think the best good-faith approach for adhering to the COI guideline would be to post a request edit, announcing that you're a paid editor - as you've been doing. That's my take.
If you have had a request sitting, though, on the talk page for a while (more than a few days), then go ahead and make the change -- with comment / update on the talk page. As you know, the more that you're making changes that have an objective tone and with reliable, independent and secondary sources, the better.–CaroleHenson (talk) 23:32, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

reversion?[edit]

Hi Carole! Just wondering why you reverted this edit. -- Mikeblas (talk) 14:14, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Mikeblas, Because you were naming two different fact sheets with the same name (see url and title):
  • your edit: <ref name="FS 9 Space">{{ cite web | url=http://www.afhra.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=11030 | title=Factsheet: Fourtheenth Air Force (Air Force Strategic) (AFSPC) | publisher=Air Force Historical Research Agency |date=4 October 2007 | via=archive.org | accessdate=13 February 2015 }}</ref>
  • original citation: <ref name="FS 9 Space">{{ cite web|url=http://www.afhra.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=10063 |title=Factsheet: Space Division |publisher=Air Force Historical Research Agency |date=4 October 2007 |via=archive.org |accessdate=13 February 2015 |deadurl=bot: unknown |archiveurl=https://web.archive.org/web/20121030120138/http://www.afhra.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=10063 |archivedate=30 October 2012 |df=dmy }}</ref>–CaroleHenson (talk) 14:23, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! But I'm still confused; as far as I can tell, I didn't change the URL or the title. I just removed the "name" field from the ref tag. Here's the diff. If I diff from my change to your final change, the only difference is that you decided to change the name of the ref tag, rather than just remove it. What am I missing? -- Mikeblas (talk) 14:53, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Mikeblas, Ah.... the lightbulb went on! Sorry about that!
Well, we're still good - in the next edit, I had renamed it (thinking it was a second instance of dupe-naming) to differentiate it from the other fact sheet.–CaroleHenson (talk) 15:00, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Great! No worries -- I'm just trying to make sure I didn't do anything wrong or disruptive. -- Mikeblas (talk) 15:03, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

It seems this goes to both of us. You did a great job as well - great edits and focus! So, I'm very happy to share it with you. It was a lot more enjoyable working with someone that working on something alone, so thanks for that.–CaroleHenson (talk) 00:26, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Heh, apparently the used book version of Warriors in Eden I bought for next to nothing was an autographed copy. I'll try to pick out key passages that would be in line with WP:PRIMARY to add to the article this weekend. TonyBallioni (talk) 03:27, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Wrongly deleting my userpage;Citing G3 as reason when the "G"s only apply to mainspace[edit]

You used your CSD module and speedy deleted my userpage [[1]] , using G3 as reasoning. G3 only applies to Mainspace articles , not userpages. Doing that was in good faith , but I was using that userpage for testing purposes and was never intending to make it a mainspace article. I would like the delete to be reverted. 5tr5 (talk) 17:55, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) CaroleHenson did not delete it, and she cannot restore it. Administrator RHaworth deleted it, and you can take it up with them. BTW G3 applies to pages in ANY namespace, not just articles. That's why the abbreviation uses a G (for general), not an A (for article). --MelanieN (talk) 18:08, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
5tr5, If you think that "University of Colorado Colorado Springs Future 2018 April fools day" page should be returned, see WP:REFUND. As an FYI, due to the nature of the page, if it is restored, it is likely to get deleted again.–CaroleHenson (talk) 18:10, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

It was not just any userspace article , it was a sandbox. 5tr5 (talk) 18:14, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Thanks, and Morgan Hebard[edit]

Wow. The page you made out of my proto-page for MH was exactly what I was inclined to eventually produce, but it probably would have taken me weeks to get it into the shape you put it in over night! Thank you so much. Do you do that sort of thing all the time, or do you have a particular enthusiasm for this subject? I was a little surprised there wasn't any page for him given his contributions to entomology, but what you compiled goes into more about him than I was even figuring on and he was my grandfather! Thanks again! Perrydigm (talk) 00:10, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi Perrydigm,
I found it when I was reviewing items in the Special:NewPagesFeed. It looked like an article that should be in Wikipedia and I was trying to prove notability. It seems that there is a lot that can be added to the article about his career, travel, and military service.
It would be good if you took a look at WP:COI, since you've identified that he was your grandfather. Even though one intends to be objective, it's so easy for bias and original research (i.e., information that you know that may not be published by a secondary source) that it's good to have someone make the actual additions to the article.
You could, though, copy this to your sandbox and work on it and then submit {{request edit}}s on Talk:Morgan Hebard when you've got the information fleshed out. (As an aside, I don't know if he's your father or uncle (I'm guessing those are the choices), but it also interesting that Morgan Hebard, Jr. was a naturalist and with the OSS during WWII. I'm not sure if there's enough to establish notability for him, but I am sure it's an interesting story.)
Anyway, if I can help, please let me know.–CaroleHenson (talk) 00:42, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi CaroleHenson, Maybe I misunderstood. I had the idea/impression that YOU added the links and original research and that you had already just approved it. I actually never knew him and don't have any "special sources". His notability isn't about his story. It's about his major contributions to entomology, classifying multiple species and genuses (genii?) and I thought the multiple links you already added indicated that. As I said, I wasn't even figuring on going into his personal life as much as you have already documented. It just seemed to me that the multiple references to the insects he discovered, named or classified should have a page to link to. I'm also rather a newbie (in case you couldn't tell) so I'm not clear exactly how to "copy this to your sandbox and work on it and then submit {{request edit}}s on Talk:Morgan Hebard". You've already been a great deal of help, but I guess I need a bit more in the basic instruction department. Perrydigm (talk) 01:07, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi, sorry to cause confusion.
I reviewed the article and marked it reviewed, meaning that I didn't think anyone else needed to review it. There may be others, though, that come along and think that more information is needed to establish notability, based upon WP:Notability (people) or WP:GNG. I don't think it's a big concern, but anything else that establishes the extent to which he has influenced his field is good.
In terms of next steps, you could work on the article in your sandbox. If you would like, I would be happy to copy the article there for you. Then, you could work on the article there - and if you let me know when you have changes ready to post, I could post them for you.
Another option is that you could just write up and cite what you'd like to add and enter a request edit for the talk page. There is more information at Wikipedia:Edit requests. Basically, you would just copy in what you'd like to add or modify to the article, with citations, to the talk page and add the edit request template.
Does that make sense?–CaroleHenson (talk) 01:28, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Perrydigm,
I have thought about what you said and there's another route. How about if you make changes directly to the article and I'll just keep an eye out and I'll update the date the page has been reviewed on the talk page notice. And, then, if an issue comes up and we need to look at going the sandbox or request edit route, we can tackle it then?–CaroleHenson (talk) 13:35, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

That sounds excellent CaroleHenson. I honestly don't have much to add to what you already did! I'll look for more citations and encomiums and bear in mind avoiding any possible appearance of bias and if somebody questions it or if you think I've erred, I will be prepared to bow to others' judgement...

Mother Marie-Anastasie[edit]

Dear Carole, The text was revised by Sister Marie-Theresa, master of the novices from the Convent of Monteils, a great scholar of Mother Marie-Anastasie’s life and work. We don’t have links to all the information, because a lot of them were collected in historical documents of the Congregation. The sources are reliable, because they are from religious people, who lived with Mother Marie-Anastasie or collected information from the sisters’ records. In addition, the images were taken personally, by members of the Congregation of Saint-Rosaire of Monteils, founded by Mother Marie-Anastasie. Therefore, we would like to keep the original essay. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rosarioteste (talkcontribs) 18:14, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Rosarioteste, There are too many issues to keep the original article, it took me a period over six hours to clean it up and find sources. See Talk:Mother Marie-Anastasie#Major edits of the article.
If you can provide citations that meet the guidelines, including WP:Verifiability, with information about who published it, when, etc. that would be fine. See Talk:Mother Marie-Anastasie#Sources. If you could add notes there with the citation information, that would be great, particularly if you have information about the schools that she opened.
There was a bit of content that was also removed due to tone, so I tried to summarize her approach in a paragraph.–CaroleHenson (talk) 18:24, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Dear Carole, Thank you for the edits and contributions. I am relatively new to writing on Wikipedia and so I am figuring my way around. The purpose in revision was to make it as original as possible.

Thank you for reviewing Maestro Vianesi, but "I will not eat green eggs and ham!" >MinorProphet (talk) 15:44, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

MinorProphet, My pleasure. I am not sure if there's a special meaning regarding green eggs and ham, but I'm with you.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:45, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
There is no special meaning regarding anything at all, except regarding numbers, whose meaning is utterly clear and unarguable. "Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple." Dr. Seuss. It just depends on your point of view. Have you read The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster? >MinorProphet (talk) 00:14, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Since rolling out the right in November, just 6 months ago, we now have 412 reviewers, but the backlog is still mysteriously growing fast. If every reviewer did just 55 reviews, the 22,000 backlog would be gone, in a flash, schwoop, just like that!

But do remember: Rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. Do not over-tag. Make use of the message feature to let the creator know about your maintenance tags. See the tutorial again HERE. Get help HERE.
