Phosgene[edit]

Your contributions to the phosgene probably are much better suited for chemical warfare or such articles. The phosgene article is more focused on the fairly extensive chemical reactivity of this important compound including industrial apps. The practical reason for recommending that you relocate your material is that the experts in the geopolitical-warfare technology dont hang out at chemical articles and so your edits are not subject to useful review. Also your edits would be more impactful in those places. As it stands the edits risk being subject to WP:UNDUE, i.e. an extensive discussion of war crimes and things like that in an article about a chemical compound.

Lowell's teaching stint in Iowa[edit]

I don't know what your resource on these dates are, but Poetry Foundation at http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/robert-lowell lists all of Lowell's university appointments, including his teaching stint at Iowa State University under the section titled "Career." And according to their site, he was in D.C. from 1947-1948 as Poetry Consultant for the Library of Congress. He didn't start teaching at Iowa until 1950. But if you've found evidence to the contrary, please cite it. Thanks! Jpcohen (talk) 22:11, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

You are correct, my error. My source was a letter by Robie Macauley describing Lowell at Iowa in the fall of 1947, however it was apparently only for a single poetry reading. Cmacauley (talk) 03:35, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Edits in Peer Support[edit]

You reverted my recent edits in Peer support with the comment "Corrections unjustified and inconsistent with research. Consumer is not equal to psychiatric; Sexual abuse and peer should be linked." These edits were clean up edits, removing redundant wikilinks (always leaving at least one link active), fixing citation templates, and removing the redirects to the newly renamed Psychiatric survivors movement. I do not think these edits were inconsistent with research. I suspect you may have leaped before you looked. Jojalozzo 15:03, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

My apologies. You are correct. Cmacauley (talk) 16:44, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Collaboration?[edit]

April 12, 2011

Dear Cmacauley,

We can see that you have made significant, and important, revisions to the Peer Support page over the last several months. Before we begin editing the wiki page on peer support with some of our recent research, we wanted to contact you to see if you would be interested in collaborating at some level to incorporate some of the research we are gathering in the area of peer support in diabetes as well as other chronic diseases? Some of which can be found at www.peersforprogress.org

I didn't find a direct link for contacting you which is why I chose this route, but if you would like to work together on this page, please contact me at PeersforProgress@aafp.org as we will begin updating the page in the next month or two.

Regards, Kevin Helm Assistant Director, Peers for Progress

Peer Mentoring[edit]

Hello CMacauley-- I see that you are an avid user of Badges, Amazon Reviews, and Wikipedia. I am interested in Peer Mentoring as a research topic. I'm beginning my dissertation in the Sociology of Media at The New School and it is very likely that I will be concentrating on under-resourced neighborhoods, teens, young mothers (under 20), and their trajectory to a "second chance" at college.

Let me know if you have any suggestions about where to begin. The field seems really over-populated with articles (your Peer Mentoring article is an incredible resource for me!). There seems to be a need for research and I'm willing to fill any gaps in the literature that you may have found.

Eleanor Ross Taylor and Peter Taylor Photo[edit]

Hi CMacauley,

My name is Kevin Dublin and I'm an Editorial Assistant for the North Carolina Literary Review. In our next issue we have a review of an Eleanor Ross Taylor collection and two articles that mention Peter Taylor. I see that you uploaded and have the rights to the photo taken by Robie Macauley of Mr. and Mrs. Taylor on the beach in 1946. Is there any way we could get a higher quality scan of photo to publish in our 2012 issue along with one of the articles? There would by attribution, of course. Please e-mail me at dublink10@students.ecu.edu to confirm whether you can help or not.

Thank You,

Non-free rationale for File:Rosalynn Carter at Sa Kaeo 11-10-79.pdf[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Rosalynn Carter at Sa Kaeo 11-10-79.pdf. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 18:21, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Source for photo of O'Connor and Macauley[edit]

May 13, 2013

Dear Cmacauley,

I'm trying to track down print publication rights for the photo, "Robie with Flannery 1947.jpg" that you uploaded on 2/28/2010. I'm wondering where you found that image, if high-resolution scans could be made, what rights are reserved for its use, and who owns them. Can you help? I can be reached at john.knight@fsgbooks.com.

The Players (New York City)[edit]

Please stop changing William Astor Chanler to William A. Chanler. Both link to the same article, and Wikipedia has a rule, which boils down to "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Thanks. Beyond My Ken (talk) 12:43, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't realize that the article was your personal property. Where, pray tell, can I find this Wikipedia rule in writing? Cmacauley (talk) 17:01, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Karlfried Graf Durckheim Assessment Request[edit]

I have reviewed the assessment request you submitted to the WikiProject Biography assessment requests page for the Karlfried Graf Durckheim article and determined that the article has already been assessed as B-class, the highest assessment usually given to articles submitted to that page.

Reversion on Ingles[edit]

Why?Anmccaff (talk) 15:56, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

"Gantlet" and "gauntlet" are two forms of the same word, as you'll see if you read the article Running the gauntlet. You corrected the spelling in one place only, but the spelling should be consistent throughout the article; in any case English-speaking readers will be accustomed to read the word as "gauntlet", not "gantlet".Cmacauley (talk) 22:42, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
No, "Gantlet" and "gauntlet" are etymologicaly and historically two words, with a good bit of ignorant usage blending them, as one need not read the article to know. Keeping the spelling consistent has its virtues, but so does catching the eye with a deliberate use of a semi-archaic usage. Ive heard english from birth, and read it for all but three years of it, and I've seen both uses from early on.Anmccaff (talk) 23:20, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Yanomami[edit]

I deleted the yekwana name, but you undid my deletion. So I wanted to point out that the Yekwana are another ethnic group living in the same area of Amazonas. In order to show you this, I inserted the link to the respective Wikipedia article about the Yekwana. There is a long history of conflict between the two groups in the Alto Orinoco area. If you heard the Yanomami calling their halozinogenic drug "yekwana", they (the Yanomami) certainly had a good laugh, but I assume that Yekwana is not the official Yanomami name of the drug. Or do you have a proof? If there is uncertainty about this name, you should give a reference of the use of "yekwana" for halozinogenic Yanomami drugs. To my knowledge the real name is "yopo". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.64.59.174 (talk) 08:12, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Your edit did not clarify the point you are making here. I am very familiar with all the ethnicities of Northern Brazil, having lived there for many years. The drug is referred to as yekwana or yakoana in the Xamatari language, and the name also refers to the tree from which it is derived, Virola elongata. Yopo is actually a different plant with hallucinogenic effects, usually cultivated in the garden by the shaman. The Xamatari also mix the powdered bark of Virola elongata with the powdered seeds of yopo, (Anadenanthera peregrina) to create a slightly different drug called ebene. I refer you to Jacques Lizot's book Tales of the Yanomami (1976) to confirm all of this information. I have added a reference according to your recommendation. Please sign your posts in the future. Cmacauley (talk) 13:05, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi Cmacauley, well-done ! I learned something, thanks for that. But when I checked for it, I found only 'yakuana' as the name for the drug. Under 'yekuana' you will find many texts about the tribe 'yekuana'. So it is not necessary to say 'yekuana' for the drug, because all the references name it 'yakuana'. I would suggest to delete the 'yekuana', just to avoid confusion with the ethnic community with the name 'yekuana'. Or do you have a valid reference where the drug is spelled 'yekuana'? Then, of course, it would be justified. Best wishes, Jim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.64.36.194 (talk) 17:15, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

OK, Jim, I have changed the spelling in the article to yakoana, which is the spelling Lizot uses in his book and in his Spanish-Xamatari dictionary. It's worth noting that "Yekuana" is used to refer to the ethnic group only by outsiders; they refer to themselves as Maiongongo. Cmacauley (talk) 17:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Well, "Maiongong" seems to be the name which the Pemon (in Brasil) gave the Yekuana (see English and especially German Wikipedia about the Yekuana). In Venezuela they are also called "Maquiritari". They seem to refer to themselves as So'to (people). Best, Jim — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.64.56.53 (talk) 16:32, 6 December 2014 (UTC)


John Winthrop Chanler[edit]

In October 2013 Cmacauley made an edit to the John Winthrop Chanler article adding that his mother was a granddaughter of Peter Stuyvesant. That was indeed her maternal grandfather's name, but this Peter Stuyvesant was in turn a great-grandson of the famous Peter Stuyvesant whose article is cross-referenced. John Winthrop Chanler's mother is therefore a great-great-great granddaughter of the Peter Stuyvesant who is being referenced. 65.196.23.66 (talk) 21:37, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

CI agents[edit]

Iwas wondering if you'd noticed that there are lists of notable agent both on United States Army Counterintelligence and Counterintelligence Corps (United States Army). Should we combine?--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 15:21, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

It would seem more appropriate to merge the two articles, with Counterintelligence Corps (United States Army) as a subsection to United States Army Counterintelligence. Perhaps add a notification on both articles that this is being proposed? Cmacauley (talk) 16:26, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
I'll put it on my "to do" list; I'll probably get the notification up later today. I'm beginning to think the whole Army CI "project" could stand a re-work. That's a much bigger project.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 16:53, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Notices up; we'll see what happens.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 20:56, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

El Dorado format[edit]

Not only did you place the picture insensitively on the page, so that the quotation was pushed into a narrow column to the left, but you increased its size against all Wikipedia guidelines. I have again reverted. If you want to use the picture, leave its size as it was and put it somewhere else. You really should learn some editorial skills and get acquainted with WP guidelines.
