John Anderson (Cal Scale)[edit]

This article, which I gather you're mostly responsible for, is kind of a mess. Could you take another look and see if you could make it more like other biographies? For example, the material under "Obituary" should be covered in the rest of the article. Overall, it's usually best to organize biographies chronologically. The material on his wife and children is probably excessive. The subject should be referred to by his last name, unless in the context of discussing other family members. Let me know if I can help.   Will Beback  talk  21:58, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

September 2011[edit]

Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give Waterson, Berlin & Snyder, Inc. a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.

Re: Bill Blakeley =[edit]

You do have a point, the list entries are by themselves decent prose. If one removed the bullets, they might even work as a prose, albeit with a rather bad flow. Still, the article's structure looks odd compared to similar sports biographies (or, indeed, biographies in general), as it mixes biographical facts, achievements and statistics. Perhaps {{Cleanup-reorganize}} is a better fit? GregorB (talk) 10:12, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Well that's nice[edit]

Thanks for spiffin' up Marlene VerPlanck. Very nice work. All the OCLC stuff is very useful, and the additional refs and other stuff too.

If you wanted to go for a DYK we could share it. Something about singing the M'm M'm Good Song might be interesting. I'm not big into to DYK and probably won't bother myself, but it might make a fun tidbit. Herostratus (talk) 04:35, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Bonnie Baker (singer)[edit]

Are you planning to integrate the material you've contributed on her personal life with the material that I originally contributed on her career? The article looks a little messy and confused as it is now, so I'll be happy to do some tidying - I don't want to get in your way though. Do you know whether she was actually born Nelson, or Underhill? Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:18, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Morris Levy[edit]

Do you have a source for the edit where you added Cynthia Brooks as a wife of Morris Levy? Or that he divorced her in 1961? 842U (talk) 12:21, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, that's very useful information... at least for the article's TALK PAGE. It's odd that Frank Dannen, in his book Hit Men, said Levy was married four times, whereas Levy himself referred to five marriages. 842U (talk) 11:11, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
You seem also to have information on where he divorced his first wife Patricia (1954, Dade County, FL)... what was her maiden name, do we know? 842U (talk) 15:43, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of The Anderson School[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Anderson School has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable piece of promotion

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. ~Charmlet -talk- 19:18, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

November 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Neal Smatresk may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Template:UNT Music[edit]

There is also considerable precedence not to add a silly long list of alumni. At least split it of to a separate template, fix the links to disambiguation pages and remove useless disambiguation like [[William Basinski|William Basinski]]. It is enough to write [[William Basinski]].

You have also added a list of alumni with articles on other Wikipedias. That is an absolute nono. Write the article or red link them. But you can't use a link to another Wikipedia.

And the second nasty comment: make sure all article wikilink to the university. During a quick check I noticed that that is not always the case. The Banner talk 18:55, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Fair comments. The Alumni list is unique in that it is tightly connected to the template topic. The heft of the institution stands atop the alumni, far more than the faculty. The template is ideally suited to quickly communicate that point. About 25 to 40% (my guess) of that list is astoundingly notable. The ability to quickly view it in the template serves as a composite snapshot — a public review of the college's total work. It is akin to showing a discography for an artist. On the interlanguage stuff — I red-lined the names. Eurodog (talk) 20:45, 19 December 2013 (UTC)
