David Lowe Article Reference for Honorary Doctorate
Hello, Yesterday I edited an article on David Lowe to include a reference to Staffordshire University's list of honorary doctorates - David Lowe is under the 2005 entries. This has now been removed an replaced with "citation needed" again. I am struggling to understand how we can get a better citation than the University's list of honorary doctorates. Any help or advise would be welcome — Preceding unsigned comment added by Estmarc (talk • contribs) 12:19, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
- @Estmarc: that's not what occurred according to the article's edit history. You simply removed maintenance templates that were still relevant without previously improving the article. The article is verging on being significantly trimmed unless references are provided. Best, FoCuS contribs; talk to me! 12:53, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
- Here is the reference to David Lowe's honorary doctorate:
- Perhaps you could add it as you seem to be much more experienced with this than I am. Cheers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Estmarc (talk • contribs) 16:28, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Recent editorial direction on "Nigel Anthony" wiki entry.
Dear FoCuSandLeArN, I must say I agree with you that I was expressing a personal enthusiasm over the Laurence Durrell talking-book recordings made by the fine English actor, Nigel Anthony (I've long admired him). But visiting the page again, now, you seem to have removed much more of the body of the article, some of it with genuinely informative information that I, myself, was very glad to learn... am I right? Also, I'd certainly gladly rewrite my own adition in a less personaly enthused voice: I accept your editorial position! Many thanks, R.S. (Rio de Janeiro). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:03, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
- Thanks for that. The problem is that none of it was sourced. Being a living person's biography, we require information on it be verifiable through reliable sourcing. You are more than welcome to add information as long as it is referenced accordingly. Best, FoCuS contribs; talk to me! 21:15, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
