Thanks for creating The Short Fiction of Norman Mailer, Grlucas!

Wikipedia editor Blythwood just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Thanks for this! I've done a bit of tagging: linked to Worldcat and ISBN numbers (this is what you paste in for that), made the title italic, added some more categories and linked on the talk page to the books project on the talk page. Hope that's OK.

To reply, leave a comment on Blythwood's talk page.

Welcome![edit]

Hi! Its really exciting to see someone with a background and interest in digital humanities working on content on Wikipedia! I also have a background in the digital humanities, and really think of Wikipedia as an obvious platform for exposing the knowledge we create in this digital humanities projects. Please let me know if you get caught, and/or need help better understanding a part of the Wikimedia community. Sadads (talk) 13:26, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, your content so far has been great! I would definitely keep up the style of writing you have been doing: heavily tied to sources, like a literature review. I find that the GA/FA processes are quite a heavy commitment of time and energy -- whereas writing a stable high-quality article without them, is usually fairly easy. Make sure that you submit some of the articles that you expand to the Did you know process. There is a handout for how the process works at here. What's great about DYK, is that it gets some of your newer content in front of at least one more experienced editor, and also a boost in visibility from the main page (which often catches copyediting issues, and may get additional interest).
I would also encourage you considering if you can work with students to expand articles that you don't have capacity to do yourself, using the Wikipedia:Education program . I have seen a number of literature course fill really important gaps in Wikiepdia, such as works by Women authors, coverage of minority or international literature, and important but missing literary terms. In the United States, you have the added bonus of support from the Wiki Education Foundation. Sadads (talk) 13:14, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

DYK for The Man Who Studied Yoga[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 19 September 2017, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article The Man Who Studied Yoga, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Norman Mailer wrote "The Man Who Studied Yoga" in 1952 in order to free himself from the past success of his first novel? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/The Man Who Studied Yoga. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, The Man Who Studied Yoga), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

Orphaned non-free image File:Cover of Double Life.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Cover of Double Life.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in section F5 of the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. --B-bot (talk) 17:12, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Norman Mailer Society officers[edit]

This change contradicts the Society's own current statements on its website. Do we have an independent source for it?

Regards, HaeB (talk) 21:34, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. The Society's site is being renovated, but its About page does reflect the changes I made. Cheers, Grlucas (talk) 13:38, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Le Deluge (talk) 12:51, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

@Le Deluge:, @RHaworth: This is an error. The page was a course page under the auspices of WP:WEP -- see my several others -- and should not have been deleted. I have been teaching with Wikipedia for several semesters. Thanks. -Grlucas (talk) 14:34, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
It appeared to be a duplicate under a mistaken name of Wikipedia:Wiki_Ed/Middle Georgia State University/Studies in Culture (Fall 2018), which still exists - did I miss something? Presumably that was the one you want on your user page etc? Le Deluge (talk) 14:38, 13 August 2018 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Thanks. I'm not sure how that happened, so I will contact the WikiEdu admin. Grlucas (talk) 14:41, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Copyright problem on Epic poetry[edit]

Content you added to the above article appears to have been copied from http://shwetawrites.com/epics/ or elsewhere online. Copying text directly from a source is a copyright violation. Unfortunately, for copyright reasons, the content had to be removed. All content you add to Wikipedia must be written in your own words. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 20:35, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

For the record, the person who wrote that page took that from me. I wrote that years ago while in my MA program during the nineties. If you notice, she quotes the whole passage crediting it to someone named "Abram" (no source is listed, though I think she means Abrams, A Glossary of Literary Terms), but I wrote the quoted passage. A version of my work is here. In fact, she seems to take a lot from my work — not that I mind, but I do request attribution. —Grlucas (talk) 03:03, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
