Overlinking[edit]

Hi, just a note to remind you that we don't normally link years, dates, or common terms. I just noticed this edit of yours.

Thanks and all the best. Tony (talk) 10:55, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Brazilian Revolution of 1930, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Conspiracy and Paraná (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. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Mocavo[edit]

Hi Jason, I notice you have been adding a lot of citations into articles that refer to digitised books on the Mocavo website, which is a family history site. Thanks for that. Can you just explain about that a bit? For example, why are there digitised books on a family history website? Do you have any connection with the website? (Just reply on this page; I am watching it.) AWhiteC (talk) 17:44, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi AWhiteC, thanks for your comment and your contributions to Wikipedia as well. Indeed I work at Mocavo. While Mocavo is a family history site, one of its main goals is to bring the world's historical content online for free; in contrast to other sites, when the content goes live on Mocavo, it stays free forever (most other sites charge you for access to this content). Mocavo acquires content in many ways including from other digital sources but its members also contribute a lot of content/books/photos that Mocavo digitizes. Collecting all of this historical content in one place allows people to trace their genealogy more effectively.
Overall, I've been interested in the value of the Wikipedia project for years but couldn't figure out a 'way in' to start contributing. But when I realized that some of the content on Mocavo could help provide valid references in wiki articles, I thought that was a good way to get started. I add references for subjects that I find interesting or articles/stubs that are 'missing' references. That also gives me an incentive to check those pages on my Watchlist - to watch out for vandalism and other errors/changes, etc; I even found & reverted a bad edit last night! I also spent 3 years in Brazil and learned Portuguese while I was down there; so I've found that I can help to translate articles from Portuguese into English as another way to contribute to the Wikipedia community. In all, I know I'm connected to Mocavo, but I really try to use a filter of 'is this making Wikipedia better?' for any edit. If you have any suggestions for more ways I could contribute to make Wikipedia better, then I'd love to hear them! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Elshrimpbucket (talkcontribs) 10 April 2014‎
Thank you for the quick reply, Jason. I think you need to have a look at the following:
... just to keep yourself clear of any criticisms. Note that I am not an export in what is right and what is wrong in this area. Also, I mentioned this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Spam#Mocavo. AWhiteC (talk) 19:42, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, unfortunately your addition of numerous citations to Mocavo sources is a conflict of interest. Your enthusiasm is welcome, so keep up the good work with the Portuguese translations. 69.183.116.200 (talk) 17:29, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Notice of External links noticeboard discussion[edit]

Information icon This message is being sent to inform you that a discussion at Wikipedia:External links/Noticeboard is taking place regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. The thread is "Mocavo". Thank you. – AWhiteC (talk) 19:33, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

(response) Thanks AWhiteC for keeping me informed. Also, I had a look at the links you sent the other day and, IMHO, I don't think the previous edits are in violation of those Wikipedia principles. I'll also keep reading up on all the Wikipedia guidelines to make sure my edits are policy compliant (and I make less errors when inserting the technical tags!) I do hope to continue being able to contribute on those types of subjects as I find the process of editing + watching a page to be interesting and gratifying! Cheers. – Elshrimpbucket (talk) 22:31, 15 April 2014 (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.
