Jason Heyward GA review[edit]

I did the corrections related your most recent review on the Jason Heyward article. Thanks for taking it on! Elcid.ruderico (talk) 19:52, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good! I am monitoring from a mobile device now, so I will take a look at it tonight when I get back home, but I expect that we'll be able to pass it. EricEnfermero (Talk) 20:16, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Joseph Peterson (psychologist)[edit]

Hi. I added some referenced info about research published by Joseph Peterson (psychologist), whose page you created. Can you please double-check that it sounds fair and balanced? I added "(sic)" at one point because the research sounds racist to me, but Wikipedia is not censored and with direct quotes, it should be OK. Maybe one slight problem is that the direct quotes are taken from book reviews, not the research published by Peterson and Lanier, but I am not sure how else to quote it (I thought about rephrasing it, but then I thought it would make Wikipedia sound racist, which I'd like to avoid). However, there are very clear in-line citations related to the book reviews, so perhaps it's OK.Zigzig20s (talk) 02:36, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

I think your additions are fine. If there were any more about race research, I would worry about whether we were placing undue weight on that aspect (but I don't know enough about his career to say) - but as is, I think it's fine. My only suggestion is that I have seen sic placed inside brackets in the past (rather than parentheses) and I think the sic goes inside the quotation marks right after the questionable word. Thanks for adding to this entry. I created this one because I was trying to make sure that all of the APA presidents had an article, but I don't know a lot about Peterson myself. EricEnfermero (Talk) 03:40, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Are you interested in the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology? I am trying to create an article on each president, but it's a lot of work (many already have a page though).Zigzig20s (talk) 03:44, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll definitely take a look. Thanks for letting me know. EricEnfermero (Talk) 04:08, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Alan Wiggins you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Bagumba -- Bagumba (talk) 04:00, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Alan Wiggins[edit]

The article Alan Wiggins you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needing to be addressed. If these are fixed within 7 days, the article will pass; otherwise it may fail. See Talk:Alan Wiggins for things which need to be addressed.

Capitalizing titles[edit]

I noticed that you changed Manager to lowercase for "Manager Earl Weaver". Per MOS:JOBTITLES, "Manager" should be capitalized when referring to a person by their title, e.g. "Manager Earl Weaver", but used as a noun it would be lowercase e.g. "the manager, Earl Weaver" or as an adjective "former manager Earl Weaver". See search results for "manager earl weaver" on NewYorkTimes.com for how it's used there. This part of MOS is not a prerequisite for GA, but wanted to discuss this if I do some more copyediting on Wiggins. Thanks.—Bagumba (talk) 05:17, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. At first I didn't realize those were your copyedits. I wasn't trying to be combative. :) To explain my position a little bit, I interpret the last part of the first bullet of MOS:JOBTITLES as the most significant - "when they can be considered to have become part of the name." Good examples would be President Nixon or General Custer. I can't imagine anyone addressing Earl as "Manager" or "Manager Weaver", so I don't think it's considered to be part of the name. I don't think it really forms a title in the sense of MOS:JOBTITLES any more than Owner Joan Kroc or Second Baseman Alan Wiggins.
With all of that said, I'm pretty easygoing and I'll leave it in whatever form you prefer. It just may be good to clarify this for the WikiProject, because I don't think the uppercase M is commonly used. You have a good point about the NYT usage. EricEnfermero (Talk) 05:51, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
I think I stumbled on the MOS a while ago when I ran across something like "Billy Bean was named the General Manager". I may or may not change it back, but not motivated to start a project discussion to head off more potential reverts. If it happens, so be it. At any rate, it's outside of GA scope.—Bagumba (talk) 06:05, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
FWIW, the Houston Chronicle doesnt follow the same MOS. Hint for me to not sweat it.—Bagumba (talk) 06:16, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm a 25ish-year reader of that very publication, so it's possible that they influenced my perception of this issue. :) I'm going to bed and I still have some more feedback to address, but I'll try to get to that tomorrow. I'll try to finish before you are going to be unavailable, but if that doesn't work out, I'm not in any particular hurry to have this promoted. Thanks for your attention to all of this stuff. The feedback is very helpful. EricEnfermero (Talk) 08:36, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
