Welcome[edit]

Welcome!

Hello, Heathart, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as Nick Rolfe, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! Yousou (talk) 17:33, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Nick Rolfe[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Nick Rolfe requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles – see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Page for Black visual arts To Do list[edit]

Thanks for the message on my Talk page. By the way, after the editathon I created a page that the Black Lunch Table can use to make an updateable To Do list. Here it is: Wikipedia:WikiProject African diaspora/Visual arts. You can start populating the headings with the names of people, things and artworks that need attention. Happy editing! -- Ssilvers (talk) 15:42, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! However, Jina has actually also created a project page! We'll be sure to ask if we have any questions.User:Heathart
User: Ssilvers, Jina has a Proposal in for BlackLunchTable project page. How long will that take to go live? Trying to figure out what to do here.User:Heathart
What is the link to the proposal and where is the discussion about it? What is Jina's username? -- Ssilvers (talk) 18:32, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
User: Ssilvers, I'll try to find it. I think it might be in her sandbox but she started it with our shared username, ValentineHart. I'll log in and see. I'm pretty sure she called it BlackLunchTables Project. I'll check.User:Heathart
User: Ssilvers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Council/Proposals/BlackLunchTable We'd like to keep this name User:blacklunchtable
Sorry, this is beyond my capabilities. My strengths are copy editing, writing articles and researching. Good luck with this! -- Ssilvers (talk) 15:41, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for giving us the option to help...[edit]

...count on us for the future!--DrX (talk) 20:58, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello again[edit]

Hi Heather it was a pleasure making the presentation to the Lunch Table. Is there a way for me to get on the mailing list of even your non-Wikipedia related events?

Also, how did the article count stack up? I know there were issues with edits being lost because of the wifi timeout.

I wanted to also ask that you spread the word in yoru networks about AfroCROWD Training The Trainers, which is a bit more advanced than what we did last time and explores more areas of Wikimedia:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1N9ZTyyV8fIUxlLhtHq-nOTGPODM5WHWI_6ovYXrvKNE/viewform

Talk soon hopefully. I believe I also sent you an email about this.

Disambiguation link notification for October 8[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Andrea Chung, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Colonial. 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.

NOLA on Tuesday[edit]

Hi there, Please let us know how you will patch @DGG:and I in on Tuesday from New York. I am happy to do the opening training like the ones I did at Studio Museum and at MoMA if you feel you need me to. Otherwise, happy to assist in which other way you think best remotely.

Note that having first time users create new articles can be tricky, unless you call the session a "Training the Trainers Session" in which case new users know they are going to be challenged. I generally encourage adding edits to an existing article at these intro sessions. However if you think your audience is ready for the challenge, we are happy to into the depth needed to help folks create articles with enough notability established to prevent immediate deletion warnings. It will definitely be more involved.

With NOLA, there may or may not be interest in the Louisiana Creole language. Let me know if that is the case although unlike for Haitian Creole (ht.wikipedia.org), I do not think there is a dedicated LC Wikipedia site yet. Creating an incubator for it is not out of the question if there is interest. This is probably a long shot but thought I would put it on the table.--Aliceba (talk) 21:55, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

You read my mind, @Aliceba:! I'd love for you to do your presentation. I can Skype you in and project you, since skype has a show desktop option, it should be rather simple to go through your power point that way... as for @DGG:, hmm, what do you think? Do you want we should do some sort of instant messager? We could stick with Skype? Will you two and possibly @BrillLyle: be in the same location? Either way, I can google chat or Skype you in to help... alternatively, I'm happy to use good old phone calls too. Whatever you prefer, DGG, as I think you might be the only person giving user names (!) -- Very good point regarding new articles. I didn't realize I'd have such a list (not present on FB). I am currently beefing it up and will add some people who have exhibited in NOLA too, that way we'll have some pages that just need editing. I'm guessing my audience will be beginners. -- re: language, I would be surprised, but I'll let you know what I hear. I think we will all be editing in English. -- You guys are AMAZING. --Heathart (talk) 22:09, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
@Heathart:Okay lovely. Patching all three of us in from the same location might be easiest for you but more difficult for us. I just did a Skype presentation showing my slides remotely to a class today so I definitely can reproduce that for you. My personal preference would be to be patched in via Skype individually as I can do that wherever I am at that time. Will let @DGG: and @BrillLyle: put in their two cents.--Aliceba (talk) 22:14, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
Also for article creation, the simplest would be to encourage as many of your attendees as possible to create accounts in advance from home and to bring the username and pword with them the day of or write it down on their phone's notepad. (Lots of ppl forget the pword.)That will streamline things considerably. --Aliceba (talk) 22:26, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
@Aliceba: I think we're ready! I just emailed you this same thing, but yes, lets do that skype with your presentation if you don't mind. And I'll just ping or phone @BrillLyle: and @DGG: when needed. Does that sound good to all? Again, you guys are amazing.--Heathart (talk) 02:05, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
I am happy to try to help remotely but not 100% sure about how much I can do via Skype... Let me know! -- Erika aka BrillLyle (talk) 03:28, 13 November 2015 (UTC)


Heather, I have handled the account problem the most direct way possible: as an administrator, I've assigned you the WP:account creator right, which we give to those running outreach sessions. From your account, click on Special pages in the left hand menu. the third group of pages is labelled Login/create account. Click on it, and you will see a screen where the peson can enter their chosen user name, password, and email. For Reason, enter "New Orleans Black Lunch Table" DO not click either of the two optional boxes near the bottom--they are usually not needed . click the green create account, and it will be created. To do another, repeat. This bypasses the six account limitation. Remind people that it may be prudent not to use their real name in full as their user name. (Alicia--remember I assigned you this right also)
skype doesn't like me. My account keeps vanishing. I will try again this weekend to set it up. I've emailed you my cell phone number as a backup DGG ( talk ) 03:38, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
@DGG: Thanks. --Aliceba (talk) 18:31, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
@DGG: Fantastic! Thanks! This really solves my issue. I didn't see the email... looking for it now, but I'm sure we'll be fine. If you are online anytime 6-8:30CST tomorrow, I can ping you if I have issues. THANK YOU!--Heathart (talk) 02:05, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, Heathart. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about in the article Jina Valentine, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. Theroadislong (talk) 19:28, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Event listings[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating these event listings! I hope they go well. Just a recommendation - when you create an event like this, it's best to add categories for the event so it can be tracked (I've done this), and add it to the calendar, editathon list and most importantly the template. This allows people to find and track it, and also will likely increase the likelihood of remote support from experienced contributors who can correct mistakes on pages created and welcome and give feedback to new contributors. Hope this is helpful to you, let me know if any thoughts or questions. Blythwood (talk) 04:21, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, and following on the recent Art+Feminism campaign, we'll focus on building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 05:13, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

On the last Sunday of every month, the Boardroom at Ace Hotel New York hosts Action Equals History — a unique opportunity for New Yorkers to learn hands-on in a technology training/workshop session about the mechanics, practices and benefits of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia projects. This is an opportunity for all to gather, share and work collectively towards a more robust account of history.

For this month, we'll focus on Wikipedia casual editing, ways to use and develop Wikidata, building better edit-a-thon tools for a variety of different thematic campaigns, and user-testing them with the community. Towards a goal of advancing these tools for wider use with diverse local groups.

Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 14:21, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Asian Month Edit-a-thon @ The Met will be the Metropolitan Museum of Art's second edit-a-thon, hosted on Sunday November 19, 2017 in the Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education (81st Street entrance) at The Met Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Following the first Met edit-a-thon in May 2017, the museum is excited to work with Wikipedia Asian Month for the potential to seed new articles about Asian artworks, artwork types, and art traditions, from any part of Asia. These can be illustrated with thousands of its recently-released images of public domain artworks available for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons from the museum’s collection spanning 5,000 years of art. The event is an opportunity for Wikimedia communities to engage The Met's diverse Asian collections onsite and remotely.

10:30 am - 4:00 pm in Bonnie Sacerdote Classroom, Uris Center for Education
81st Street entrance, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue

Attendees should bring their own laptops and power cords. Light snacks, drinks and cake will be provided.

We also welcome remote participation for the global online Wikipedia Asian Art Month, running November 1-30.

Thanks, and hope to see you at the museum, and/or as part of the online Wikipedia Asian Month contest!--Pharos (talk) 16:35, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Art+Feminism Outreach Dashboard Interview[edit]

Hi Hearthart, my name is Maudite (Candela) and I am working together with WikiEducation in improving the Outreach Dashboard that is commonly used for the Art+Feminism Program (https://outreachdashboard.wmflabs.org/). I have seen you are an active contributor and also have been instructor in several programs. Currently I am trying to perform some user interviews to talk about some of the features that we have implemented and understand better your needs. Also, I would like to create a include a new feature to the dashboard that could help the creation of drafs and common writing, specially for those articles that could be difficult to write due to the lack of resources in the mainstream media. I am sure that you have a lot of valuable feedback that could mean a lot to us and the future users of the dashboard.

I would like then to have a videoconference with you if you don't mind, but I am also ok with talking through email if you don't like that mean of communication. Please let me know what works best for you and of course if you would be interested in talking to me.

Thanks a lot in advance and have a great week.

Best, Maudite — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mauditecandela (talkcontribs) 13:54, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

Content translation tool[edit]

Hey! Do you recall the username of the woman at the Kickstarter edit-a-thon who had an issue with the Wikipedia:Content translation tool? I'm trying to track down more info so it doesn't happen again but so far my hunch is that it was a permissions issue with the French WP and that next time, she could click on the gear icon and save in Draft: draftspace rather than as a mainspace article. But yes, trying to figure it out, if you recall any details czar 16:26, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi@Czar:. Maybe, I think maybe @Rhododendrites: was working in French?--Heathart (talk) 22:02, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I was working with someone translating into Burmese, which isn't supported by the translation tool so it probably wasn't us. I do know that Pharos said he granted access for someone else to use it, though. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 22:16, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I will say that while I don't know the specific case you're referring to, Czar, use of the content translation tool in general requires extended confirmed on the target wiki enwiki (WP:CXT -- actually this isn't relevant to translating into French, so nevermind :) ). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 22:17, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
@Rhododendrites, I think it was after you left. She had a captcha issue while saving. If anyone sees her again, the draft progress should ostensibly be saved in the tool. (I didn't know as I haven't used it in a while.) I now know that enwp requires extended confirmed to save, but I wonder whether frwp has the same restriction (not specified) and if so, whether that was the reason why she couldn't save. Reported here if you're curious. She was also interested in meetups for other languages. czar 22:25, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
@Rhododendrites:,@Maykalay: was working in Burmese. I can't find the woman who was working in French. Nor the one in Spanish. I tried pulling all three languages in to the Outreach Dashboard, but not sure it worked. And if it did then those two either didn't save their work or they didn't sign in to the dashboard. :( Is there a place where her work wouldve been saved and searchable? I know the French woman was working on the French article for Heather Hart (I don't know her and didn't ask her to, btw). I'm not certain what the Spanish article was. :/ I'm going to try entering the editathons users into the beta of the wiki grantmetrics and see if something is revealed. --Heathart (talk) 23:53, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure of the easiest way to track edits outside of enwiki unless manually added. In this case, I just ran through the global contributions of each user (there's a link at the bottom of user contribs pages) and found that Natropical contributed to es:Shantell Martin. I went ahead and added it to the Dashboard page. Nobody that has signed up has made edits to the French Wikipedia recently (although I didn't check the organizers' accounts, but that seems unlikely). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 02:07, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
@Czar: @Rhododendrites: I am aware of restrictions on using the tool to translate into English, German and Italian. I haven't seen a similar restriction in French, but it is possible. I believe as Czar sggested you can workaround by using a draft or sandbox in the target language, then moving the page later. The easiest way to track in dashboard would I guess be to see Wikidata edits when you are publishing the translation, and it is added to the Wikidata item. You could also create multiple dashboard events if you expect a specific two languages or so in something like a bilibgual editathon, rather than a random selection of whoever is coming.--Pharos (talk) 18:19, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
@Czar: @Rhododendrites: @Pharos: Thanks for helping! Maybe the French translator never signed in with us, that's a shame. Sage gave me a shortcut to including the other Wikis: assign someone attending an article in the language you want to include and supposedly that Wiki will be applied to all attendees. Seems like it may not have worked if you manually entered the Spanish translation. :/ I'm not sure why.--Heathart (talk) 14:20, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Just wondering why you appear to have added the category 'Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture alumni' to the above page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Amos_(actress)), as there is no supporting evidence in the article. I think she's being confused with another Emma Amos, namely https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_Amos_(painter). (There have been other, similar problems with the actress's page recently.) Thanks.

Deletion discussion about LinYee Yuan[edit]

Hello, Heathart,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether LinYee Yuan should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/LinYee Yuan .

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top.

Thanks,

Thank you Polyamorph, I was helping a new editor begin this page and thought they would work more on it, I am going to notify them and hope that they follow up. Best,--Heathart (talk) 19:41, 13 April 2018 (UTC)

A page you started (Sam Vernon) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Sam Vernon, Heathart!

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

I rewrote it a bit. I prefer summarizing what sources say over asserting notability by virtue of being "featured" in a publication. I invariable find the "20 under 20' or 'fastest growing something' list lacking in depth. Receiving significant coverage in the press is a minimal requirement for a subject to have an article, so it is assumed and not noteworthy that such coverage exists. Anyway, wasn't there also a review in the NYT? I can't seem to find it.

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

Learn more about page curation.

Invitation to join Women in Red[edit]

Women in Red logo.svg
Thank you for creating several articles on women and their works over the past few weeks. We have become aware of your contributions thanks to research undertaken by Bobo.03 at the University of Minnesota.
We think you might be interested in becoming a member of our WikiProject Women in Red where we are actively trying to reduce Wikipedia's content gender gap.
You can join by using the box at the top of the WiR page. But if you would like to receive news of our activities without becoming a member, you can simply add your name to our mailing list. In any case, thank you for actively contributing to the coverage of women (currently, 17.55% of English Wikipedia's biographies).

Our priorities for April:

April+Further with Art+Feminism Archaeology Military history (contest) Geofocus: Indian subcontinent

Event coordinator[edit]

Hi, the English Wikipedia recently created a new user permission for editors involved in off-wiki outreach work, event coordinator. This new permission allows users to mark accounts for confirmed for up to 10 days, and also allows them to create accounts for events without rate limits without some of the features of the account creator right that aren't used at edit-a-thons and other events. I have added the event coordinator permission to your account and removed the account creator permission, as you appear to have been using it mainly for outreach work.

This should have no noticeable impact on your ability to create accounts, and will give you the extra ability to temporarily confirm accounts if you need to. For more in formation, you can see the information page on the right, or you can ask me if you have any questions. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:52, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Can we talk about event organizer tools?[edit]

Hi Heather. I’m a product manager at the Wikimiedia Foundation. My team's next assignment is to design and build a tool for people such as yourself, who organize editathons. (Here's the project page for this, which I've just inherited from another PM.) My colleague, Alex Stinson, suggested you as someone who’s very active in this area and who might have ideas about how we could best help you.

I’d like to set up a time when we might chat. If that sounds good to you, please send me a contact email and I’ll be in touch. You can reach me here: jmatazzoni[at]wikimedia.org.

I’m looking forward to meeting you! —JMatazzoni (WMF) (talk) 22:58, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

Account creations[edit]

Hi Heathart,

I've noticed you've created a few new accounts recently. I have a serious concern with the way you have created these accounts - you didn't send the password via email to the new user, so from the logs, either the account you created should be treated as compromised, or it should be treated as an account you have control over. Additionally, one of the accounts created by you was with the comment "Want to edit wikipedia with my knowledge", which indicates to me you may have allowed others access to your account.

Going forward, please can you use the "send password by email" checkbox if you are creating accounts for other people, as is required by the usage standards of the Event Coordinator rights? Please also be aware that allowing other people, including event attendees, access to your account for any reason is grounds for revocation of this right.

Cheers! stwalkerster (talk) 09:18, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Absolutely,stwalkerster, I hadn't been taught this way, to send password, so thank you for the info. I had been taught to let them drive but guide them over the shoulder under my log in to create the account. I won't do that any more. So to clarify, to create their account, I would need to gather their emails and create their password, then? And I assume they are prompted to change the password upon first log in? Or is this something I should teach them to do? Thanks for clearing this up.
cc: Pharos.--Heathart (talk) 12:50, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Yep, get their requested username and their email address, check the "send by email" box, and then the system will automatically email them their password, and they'll be required to change it on first login. More comprehensive instructions are on the WP:EVC page. stwalkerster (talk) 13:29, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks!--Heathart (talk) 04:32, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
@Stwalkerster: I think there's been a misunderstanding here. These new accounts aren't being created remotely, but live in person at an edit-a-thon. The new editor borrows from experienced editor's computer to create an account, then the computer is passed right back. This is standard practice for an in-person edit-a-thon.--Pharos (talk) 11:13, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
@Pharos: No, I do understand perfectly that this is happening in-person. The experienced editor should not be allowing someone else to use their account under any circumstances, especially if their account hold advanced permissions. What you're telling me is that the "standard practice" is for the experienced editor to leave account compromised for a minute or two, and (less of an issue with +EVC given the lack of tboverride, but definitely with +ACC/sysop) allow the newbie to create a UPOL-breaking/blacklisted username and generally have a bad initial experience, which they should be able to avoid with the experienced editor having created the account and sending the password via email.
That something is a "standard practice" does not make it a good practice, especially since this is actually contradicting both good account security practices and the usage standards of eventcoordinator - please just use the "email password" checkbox (Unless there is a good unavoidable reason to do so, which should be put into the reason box - I'm currently aware of just one circumstance for this at the moment thanks to Delphine Dallison). stwalkerster (talk) 11:49, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
The account is not compromised when noone ever leaves the Special:CreateAccount page and they are being supervised. This has been the best practice for many years at many events and there has never been an abuse of it. At least for larger events, it is just not practical to add an extra level of registration.--Pharos (talk) 12:29, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
If they are being supervised, then it's easily possible for you to fill in the reason field, and let them fill in the password. The issue is also one of protection for you, as for those not present at the event, when an account performs actions like this it sure does look like we have a compromised admin account - and we've had far too many attempts on accounts recently to be sure that's not the case.
At the larger events, I expect you have many more people requesting accounts - and as such I expect in most cases one person typing in requested usernames and an email address is likely much quicker than having a likely slower typist think up a username and a password? By sending the password via email, you can defer the remainder of the registration process to the attendee which should increase throughput for you, not reduce it. stwalkerster (talk) 20:26, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Ways to improve Tiona Nekkia McClodden[edit]

Hi, I'm Devopam. Heathart, thanks for creating Tiona Nekkia McClodden!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Please see WP:ARTIST , also , avoid too many bold / italics in the article body. In current shape, it is failing notability per analysis. The imdb reference looks like CoI / promoted, better not be used as reference.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Devopam (talk) 09:35, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Devopam, thanks for your feedback. I'll get another's eyes on this article presently. Pharos, could you take a look at this page and let me know what you think? Although I realize the article is short, I thought it may be a stub or a start, not clear on the issues raised. I was told by someone that imdb could be used as an archive and not really understanding the notability failing here nor the "feelings" statement as none of the language is outside of fact.--Heathart (talk) 14:40, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
