Enrique Martinez Celaya[edit]

Noticed your recent edits to Enrique Martinez Celaya. Not sure why you lower-cased them, but I've reverted your edit as I'm under the assumption that actual titles as opposed to general jobs are capitalized? Am I mistaken? GauchoDude (talk) 18:44, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

@GauchoDude: I lower-cased them per WP:JOBTITLES: "Offices, titles, and positions such as president, king, emperor, pope, bishop, abbot, executive director are common nouns and therefore should be in lower case when used generically ...". The word professor could be capitalized in some cases, such as "Martinez Celaya met with Professor Blotherwicz in 2011." Chris the speller yack 19:14, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
@Chris the speller: I'll defer to your expertise as this seems to be much more in your realm. I guess I was operating under the assumption that it was more of a specific title-appointment as opposed to being a general "art professor" or something along those lines. GauchoDude (talk) 20:01, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
@GauchoDude: Cool. The titles in that article have been lower-cased again. Chris the speller yack 20:29, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Request for a new article[edit]

Hello I have an important social media Costa Rican that need a Wikipedia page can you add him email him at — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:00, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

You don't need me to create a new article; you may add it yourself. However, the proper sources for Wikipedia articles are described in WP:SOURCES. Sending emails to people to ask for information about themselves is not the way to go about creating an article. Chris the speller yack 01:08, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Ben.architektor (talk) 17:08, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
@Ben.architektor: I do not need such pictures. The best place to get help with pictures is at WP:HELPDESK. Chris the speller yack 02:42, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

An article about an unusual woman that could need some copy-edit[edit]

Hi, I have translated a article from Norwegian Wikipedia in Bokmål/Riksmål, but as English is not my native language I could need some help in fixing mistakes that I am sure are there, before I upload it to mainspace. If you could use a few minutes checking it I would be grateful. :-) If I could do some favor back I am all open for that, like translating any favorite article of you into Norwegian Bokmål/Riksmål. Ulflarsen (talk) 21:22, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

@Ulflarsen: I did some cleanup, mostly using her surname and dropping 'the' before 'MV'. I think "warsailor" (which is not a valid word) should be "sailor" or "member of the merchant marine" or "sailor in the merchant marine", and "plass" should be translated to "Place", "Plaza" or "Square". There is no need to pay me back; just keep up the good work. Chris the speller yack 02:36, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for taking time to look at the article, and about "keeping up the good work", I started to contribute in 2004 and if I keep my health I will keep on contributing in the coming years. :-) Ulflarsen (talk) 06:55, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
