Tidying up your footnotes at Sergio C. Garcia[edit]

Hello, since your article has numerous footnotes to the same sources, you can make that much tidier using WP:Refnames coding. That will condense your footnotes down so the same number is used at multiple points to refer to just one footnote, making your list far more concise. Please take a look at that coding, and contact WP:Teahouse if it's unclear to you. Nice work on your article! MatthewVanitas (talk) 03:56, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

I also agree on the "nice work." A couple other tips on references:
  1. When using {{cite web}} or {{cite news}}, always include the |title= parameter. Otherwise you will get that red missing title error message.
  2. When using {{cite web}}, the |website= parameter is used to indicate the name of the website, not the URL (you already cover the URL with the |url= parameter). If the name of the website is the same as the publisher, you can just omit it.

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, Curtster3. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article United States Senate election in Kentucky, 2014, you may have a conflict of interest.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you. TJRC (talk) 23:37, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

July 2014[edit]

Warning icon Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to violate Wikipedia's no original research policy by adding your personal analysis or synthesis into articles, as you did at Mitch McConnell, you may be blocked from editing. Your addition of derogatory material about a possible connection between Wilbur Ross, Elaine Chao, and a mine disaster in an unrelated article appears to be synthesis by original research. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:19, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

On pondering this matter, I find @Robert McClenon:'s charge here to be biased and a violation of WP:AGF. This was a single edit and I see absolutely no evidence of disruptive editing. The material added clearly had WP:NPOV issues, but there's no reason to believe that this user was doing anything but trying to add relevant material to the Fundraising section of the subject article. This warning is similar to one left on my page that I also believe is biased and violates WP:AGF where McClenon claimed an "edit war" waged on my part without any evidence whatsoever.

Nomination of Angela Chao for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Angela Chao is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Angela Chao until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Anupmehra -Let's talk! 05:47, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

This is my first time trying to "talk" to defend my submission, forgive me if I do it wrong. Angela Chao is on the board of directors of some of the most powerful groups on the planet. As the one of the few Asian American women in the U.S to hold these kind of positions of power, I am concerned why someone would want the page deleted. Further, her support and enthusiasm for the arts in NYC, which I didn't have to time to add yet, is expansive. To summarize, Chao's a very influential member of the international business community, one of Harvard's most generous alums, influential in NYC arts, and a role model to Asian American girls. That's my best pitch. Do as you must.
