Harold Howe II[edit]

Hello Halclyon,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, Harold Howe II, may be copied from It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 13:07, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Harold Howe II[edit]

Hello Halclyon,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Harold Howe II for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to rewrite it in your own words, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Barney the barney barney (talk) 13:30, 21 July 2013 (UTC) Hi Barney,

IFirst of all, I'm not an experienced Wiki editor and do not understand a lot about the tecnical aspects. I worked closely with Harold Howe II and knew him well and was asked by a Wikipedia editor if I would write an article on him. I drafted the piece you have nominated for deletion from Harvard Graduate School of Education as a draft beginning of the article and later referenced the Harvard source, hoping I and others could add to it. I encountered this editor some years ago when I was making some changes to the Sesame Street article as she kept deleting my edits even thoughI was there as the project officer for Sesame Street, and knew what happened. My experience here has been very frustrating! Did you see my references to the draft crediting its source?

Another question for you as certainly a more experienced wiki editor than I: The article on me: Harold C. Lyon Jr. has been labeled as a "Stub" bu someone, after which, as suggested, I added more content. How do I get it "unstubbed as it now has much more content??

Opting in to VisualEditor[edit]

As you may know, VisualEditor ("Edit beta") is currently available on the English Wikipedia only for registered editors who choose to enable it. Since you have made 50 or more edits with VisualEditor this year, I want to make sure that you know that you can enable VisualEditor (if you haven't already done so) by going to your preferences and choosing the item, "Enable the visual editor. It will be available in the following namespaces: $1". This will give you the option of using VisualEditor on articles and userpages when you want to, and give you the opportunity to spot changes in the interface and suggest improvements. We value your feedback, whether positive or negative, about using VisualEditor, at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback. Thank you, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:16, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Please do not write or add to an article about yourself. Creating an autobiography is strongly discouraged – see our guideline on writing autobiographies. If you create such an article, it may be deleted. If what you have done in life is genuinely notable and can be verified according to our policy for articles about living people, someone else will probably create an article about you sooner or later (see Wikipedians with articles). If you wish to add to an existing article about yourself, please propose the changes on its talk page. Please understand that this is an encyclopedia and not a personal web space or social networking site. If your article has already been deleted, please see: Why was my page deleted?, and if you feel the deletion was an error, please discuss it with the deleting administrator. Thank you. ElKevbo (talk) 03:37, 12 February 2014 (UTC) I have been putting in the references requested as links as well as correcting information on other sites where I personally present and know that information posted was incorrect an have put in references where I could to published sources. (Sesame Street, Carl Rogers, George Wallace, James Meredith, etc). Some editor posted on my addition to the George Wallace, "unlikely story". I was there when this secret negotiation took place and this editor was not even born at that time! Very frustrating!Halclyon (talk) 21:25, 23 February 2014 (UTC)Harold LyonHalclyon (talk)

Disambiguation link notification for March 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Harold C. Lyon, Jr., you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Michael Murphy and Gifted & talented. 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.
