Earth System Governance Project[edit]

Hi DASonnenfeld, you added 'newsrelease' to this page. How/where can I improve this page?Thegreenpanther (talk) 10:07, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi User:Thegreenpanther. Thanks for your question -- and for your contributions to Wikipedia. Please see WP:FIVEPILLARS and WP:NOTPROMOTION for guidelines and suggestions. As an encyclopedia, Wikipedia articles should be encyclopedic... Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:29, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi User:DASonnenfeld. Thank you for your quick reply and your suggestions. Are there specific parts that you find explicitly promotional? Best regards Thegreenpanther (talk) 10:52, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi User:Thegreenpanther. I do have a couple of further suggestions. It would be very helpful and important I think to look for third-party reliable sources on the governance project, and include them in the article. Consider: What would a very good encyclopedia article about a project look like? Related to this, you also might look at comparable articles on Wikipedia, in particular ones that were assessed as "Good articles" or "Featured articles" to get a sense of what such a strong, encyclopedic entry looks like. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 14:48, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Dear DASonnenfeld, I removed the overly promotional sentences/wordings. Do you think the notification on top of the page can now be removed? I also added some secondary sources Thegreenpanther (talk) 10:40, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Please help me out vs. deletionist approach on a Thai stub[edit]

Hi there! I found your name among Active members of Wikipedia:WikiProject_Thailand. Could you help me out in defending the notability of M-150 (energy drink) as an admin is apparently unhappy with its notability despite the sources I have provided to try to save the article. If you speak Thai (I only superficially understand it due to my basic understanding of Lao), any source you could provide would also really help and maybe induce some people to modify their deletionist editing bias. I quit Wikipedia for years as I was spending more time defending legitimate edits from rule extremists than contributing legitimate edits. I hope you can take a minute or two to help me out on this. Thanks!! Rdavout (talk) 19:25, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Rescuing Faith Seidenberg[edit]

Thanks for rescuing Faith Seidenberg from my mistaken delete request. It shows up as a page under my account, and I couldn't see that it was a redirect. If there's a way to remove it from the user:LaMona path let me know so I don't do this again. LaMona (talk) 21:28, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Hi LaMona, Glad to help. Looks like it's all clear to me. I don't see any redirects or subpages... Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 22:07, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Need your support[edit]

Hi, good morning. I noticed that are very active on the State of New York University page. I wanted to let you know that the page of one of the trustees Joseph Belluck has been nominated for deletion. I would really appreciate it if you could support the page so that it is not deleted: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Joseph_Warren_Belluck

Thank you very much Nwerner1 (talk) 13:27, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Joseph Warren Belluck, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page David A. Patterson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles.

List of forest research institutes[edit]

[1]? There is no article for that particular listing, would you make one? D4iNa4 (talk) 09:49, 8 September 2015 (UTC) ^^

  • Thanks for your query. There are quite a few redlinks in that article; it seems arbitrary to delete just one... Sincerely, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 09:55, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

MPH page[edit]

Hello!

I'm a current student at Manlius Pebble Hill. Thanks for removing the Harry Potter references, however I did change the enrollment to 325, which is approximately the current number as of the 2015-2016 academic year. MPH had some issues going on last year financially, and as a result this year's student body is significantly smaller. I'll be changing it back to reflect the current numbers accurately but I wanted to let you know that 325 is the correct number (If you look at the FAQs under the Admissions page on mph.net you'll see 325 as the enrollment).

Thanks! SV

re: Chet Bowers and your tag[edit]

Let me begin by restating how much I have appreciated all of the editing help and specific suggestions that have led to an improved article and its subject: Chet Bowers. However, at least 7 editors have reviewed and edited the article since it was accepted ( all thanked) but you are the only one who has tagged the article and suggested it reads like an advertisement, that it contains promotional content and needs a more neutral POV. Can you give me a specific example of these 3 contentions? I have followed your links regarding neutral POV, external links, etc. and read the material. And honestly, I do not see anything currently within the article that is in direct conflict or a violation. Though admittedly, I am not an experienced editor or author. Before the article was accepted, with the help of others, the original draft text was pared down and more fully supported by references. Please remember that, other than editing for grammar, correct formatting, and specific violations of Wikipedia rules, a judgement regarding the POV or tone of the article can be and is subjective. I believe that is why there are warnings regarding the general use of tagging, including Wikipedia's own term: "drive by tagging". Please use the talk page to give me at least one example of each of your concerns within the article and I will edit it accordingly. Having done so, I would ask that you please remove the tag.C S Chaffee (talk) 15:37, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for restoring the Freedom Collection interview with Martin Butora. It's powerful.

Refimprove template[edit]

Do we really need a refimprove template on a simple, finite list as has been added to List of USCAA institutions? The list is taken from the official source, and the official source is cited. Every single table entry is blue-linked if someone wants to follow up. What more sourcing do we really want on such an article? The template just places a distracting box at the top of the article which detracts from the user experience, and while I am a huge believer in reliable sources, in this case additional citations are totally unnecessary for verifiability. Really, what value would additional sources provide? It's a list, not a blp. Thanks, Jacona (talk) 23:20, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Continuous cover forestry article[edit]

Hi there DASonnenfeld. I am the author of the Continuous cover forestry article. I am also a new editor. This is my first article, partly inspired by the fact that I am a researcher in this area. I will continue to make edits to other articles within the forestry areas/category.

I do not quite understand why the article has been moved. Surely if you thought there was a problem with capitalisation of "Continuous Cover Forestry", all that was required was to change the name to "Continuous cover forestry". Why was this done and why was I not notified? Most grateful for your advice. WikiForester (talk) 15:24, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi WikiForester, Thanks for your query. Wikipedia's article naming convention is that only the initial letter of the first word is capitalized unless it is a proper noun. (See WP:TITLE.) Once an article is created, the only way to change it is to move it. Happy editing! DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 23:19, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Many thanks for your comments, is it possible to now delete the original article that I created to avoid complications ... Continuous Cover Forestry?

Or maybe it does not matter and the new page "Continuous cover forestry" now has a life of its own? Thanks. WikiForester (talk) 17:51, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

  • As you'll see (follow the link, above), it is now a redirect page. No need to worry about it... Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 18:08, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

WikiProject Arctic archive[edit]

I saw this edit of yours and was curious as to what, in your opinion, "failed". I've been archiving talk pages in this manner for years, as I primarily access this website from a phone (with a data limit, unless I desire to spend more money for more data) and understand that many others do as well, and it helps in terms of readability and bandwidth. I've never heard any such comment from another editor in the course of these edits. When I completed that edit, there was a redlink, but I clicked on it and it took me to the archive page just fine. I cleared my cache, yet there was still a redlink and it still took me to the archive page. When you reverted it, I went back to my revision. This time it was a bluelink, but I had the same result. Same with today. AFAIC, the problem is with {{Archives}}, but the maintainers of that template appear as though they don't want to hear about it and that I need to keep arguing with them before they bother to listen. Not the first time that's happened with a template, BTW, but I don't see such activity as a constructive use of my limited time. So, if {{Archives}} is broken and no one wants to fix it, that's what I need to know so I can quit using it. Otherwise, your use of "failed" implies that it had something to do with my actions, whereas I have no information which leads me to believe that's true. RadioKAOS / Talk to me, Billy / Transmissions 00:30, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Billy, Thanks for your note. I think you hit the nail on the head -- there may be something wrong with the {{Archives}} template. It was indeed the redlink that worried me; once I added the {{talk header}} template I saw that your archiving itself worked fine. Best wishes, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 03:35, 5 December 2015 (UTC)
