If you’re going to add kelis allegations to nas wiki you can at least add the fact that he denied all her claims, okay B.b.brown (talk) 20:14, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Michael Olowokandi[edit]

Hi Jessica, I made edited changes with supporting references on Michael Olowokandi but you reverted it back. Melchizedek123 (talk) 22:34, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

He played 36 games in the 2002–2003 season before sustaining an injury that forced him to miss the rest of the season. In his last year with the Los Angeles Clippers, he sustained a hernia and knee injury, which greatly hindered his ability after being listed as a top free agent prospect for the 2002–03 season. He finished that season averaging 12.3 points (on 42.7% shooting from the floor) 9.1 rebounds, 2.2 blocks, and 2.7 turnovers per game. During that offseason, he signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves. His time with the Timberwolves was marked by serious injury which resulted inconsistent play. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Melchizedek123 (talkcontribs) 22:37, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Notable achievements from his best season was a season high 30 points vs the Chicago bulls on March 8th. "Olowokandi contributes to sweet Clipper win" Cite error: A <ref> tag is missing the closing </ref> (see the help page). </nowiki> or this:<ref name>(citation details)</ref>

However, I'm not sure the content you added is actually contained in that reference. We're talking about the National Register pdf, right? I did a quick skim and I'm not seeing a lot of your content contained there.
In addition, your text had a ton of errors, such as misspelled words, incomplete sentence, and missing punctuation. These issues really need to be addressed if you'd like to re-add the content. Jessicapierce (talk) 22:42, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Many thanks for editing my wiki page; Sandeep Sander[edit]

Hi Jessica

I just saw your editing of my Wiki-profile. Many thanks - my "Denklish" (Danish and English mixed) has been replaced by your proper English :-) Well done. I am curious to know if you are interested in doing more work. I have some important inout/contributions - and I need a "supporter" :-) Feel free to email me on Best regards from Silicon Valley Sandeep--SandeepSander 05:22, 3 December 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by SandeepSanderSanderMan (talkcontribs)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you so much for the advise! I know that it must be painfully obvious that I am still figuring things out.Brially (talk) 06:02, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

No worries whatsoever - looks like you got it sorted out! I did condense the duplicate citations (you can see my edit here, in case it's helpful to see how I did it). The formatting here can be tricky, and sometimes one wrong character can really mess things up, which is why I always encourage the use of Preview. Keep in mind that you can always test things out in your sandbox, too (link at top right). Have fun, and if I can help with anything else, just let me know! Jessicapierce (talk) 06:51, 4 December 2018 (UTC)


I ran across this article Cupid, in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting and was simply going to fix some cite errors. But a closer look at the revision history and the page of User talk:Guardian212, indicates there has been previous issues. If you scroll all the way to the bottom, there is this oddity - This is a user sandbox of Cupid. A user sandbox is a subpage of the user's user page. It serves as a testing spot and page development space for the user and is not an encyclopedia article. And then there is additional references and sources below the external links. And I also got a 90.7% on a copyvio detection, seen here, and also saw a previous copyvio in the revision history. I honestly don't know where the last clean version of this article is to roll it back to, could you please take a look and see what you think. I noticed your warning on Guardian212's talk page and it appears they have ignored it. Thanks, I certainly would appreciate it. Isaidnoway (talk) 05:00, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you so much for letting me know. I have that page on my watchlist but didn't get a notification about those recent changes, which are not an improvement. I've reverted the page to what I think is the last good version (I'll take a closer look in a sec to make sure). Cheers! Jessicapierce (talk) 05:18, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Abraham B.[edit]

Sorry about the confusion. I realized that I'd removed a cite, by accident, and was going back through my edits trying to figure out what it was. I became totally confused because you'd addressed the error that I was looking for already and I hadn't realized that anyone else was working on it. I was trying to eliminate the non-Bolden elements of the article about him, and left numerous cn requests, in addition to the deletions. Activist (talk) 03:40, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Bubble Tea.png Thank you for being diligent in noticing and reporting an issue with KolbertBot, I went through the list of potentially affected edits and you seem to have fixed them all. Enjoy a bubble tea on me! Cheers. Jon Kolbert (talk) 23:14, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! It was pretty easy, they all showed up in search results on a ref error I was looking for. I did check a handful of other recent bot edits, but I didn't find anything weird. Cheers, Jessicapierce (talk) 23:28, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Question about redundant/unnecessary article[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Hello, I'm unsure where to post about this, as this isn't something I've encountered before. I'm wondering why we need History of the Interport Police (whose title also apparently has a typo in the name of the organization), when we already have InterPortPolice. Shouldn't all the relevant content go there? If this needs merging/moving/whatever, I would appreciate it if the editor answering this question would do so, as this is pretty far out of my wheelhouse. Thank you for your time, Jessicapierce (talk) 23:42, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Jessica, usually the best place to start is on the talk pages of the articles in question. It's possible the history article was created as a college class project, but I'm not certain. I do think the articles should be merged, as the original article is still quite short. (I'm leaving your help request active so you'll get more comments.) - BilCat (talk) 00:06, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
I'll run point for you in a merge proposal if you're uncomfortable doing that. Some aspects of Wikipedia still overwhelm or intimidate me, and I've been here over 12 years! :) - BilCat (talk) 00:08, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Any guidance you can offer on this would be great! It's only in the past few years that I've ventured beyond fixing grammar, and there are so many functional aspects of Wikipedia that are foreign to me. Jessicapierce (talk) 00:13, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Whoops, I got a phone call in the middle of typing and should have been more clear. I should have said "if you'll point me towards how to propose a merge, I'll be glad to try and navigate that, but if you'd rather just do so yourself, I would appreciate either form of help". Jessicapierce (talk) 00:15, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
You could take a look at Wikipedia:Merging. If you feel capable of understanding and following the instructions, I don't want to take away the opportunity to learn. However, If your eyes glaze over after trying to read it from WP:TLDNR syndrome, or otherwise, then I'll propose the merge, though it won't be today.
Meanwhile, it looks like User:Mosterbur is the professor, and started the history article as a cut-and-paste of the original article. User:Scaloggero24 appears to be the students. How are you at personal interaction in problem situations? It's not really my strength. :) - BilCat (talk) 00:27, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you BilCat & Jessicapierce and my apologies for the delayed response (end of semester can be quite hectic). My student originally edited the InterPortPolice page and made the change to History of because he felt he had only really contributed to the history of the organization rather than its current efforts. He is learning and we both appreciate your assistance in that process Mosterbur (talk) 19:15, 13 December 2018 (UTC)Mosterbur
Thanks so much for the starting point. I will finish up a few (well, a lot) of things I'm in the middle of, and then take a look at that merging info. I'll get in touch again if it fries my brain. :) Jessicapierce (talk) 00:34, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
I just did a WP:BOLD merge - you don't need to formally propose a merge if one looks uncontroversial as in this case :) Galobtter (pingó mió) 13:09, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Oh, thanks very much Galobtter! I'll read up on how to do this myself, but I do appreciate you taking care of it. Also, thanks to you and BilCat for being super helpful and friendly about this - I've been snapped at a fair few times for asking questions, so I always appreciate civility. Best, Jessicapierce (talk) 16:31, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Well, what I did was basically just copy the main part of the History of the Interport Police over to InterPortPolice. Also, it's unfortunate that your questions have been met with incivility; you can always ask me if you need any help - and I don't snap :) Galobtter (pingó mió) 17:05, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Stettheimer article and your deletion and reply comments[edit]

Jessicapierce - you commented on my request for a senior editor due to a complaint about deletion of my EXPERT ADDITIONS on the Florine Stettheimer article. However when you directed me to your "Talk" page, there is no archived former comments by you on the Stettheimer article so I've had to start a NEW section "talk page"

As I spent 3 hours writing corrected FACTUAL information on Stettheimer, correcting completely UNTRUE information that was on her site, which you deleted two days aga, and wrote yesterday (at my request for a Senior Editor Review Dispute) that I must add valid PUBLISHED SOURCE MATERIAL..PLEASE PUT BACK MY DELETED MATERIAL AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO ADD THAT PUBLISHED SOURCE MATERIAL!!!!

I was in the midst of doing so, but the entire information I added was deleted.

I apologize but the format for working - the "language" necessary for writing on Wikipedia - is so complicated and difficult to learn, that it would take me a month or more to do so, and frankly I don't have time to become fully conversant with it enough to correct the information. I don't know how ANYONE who is not a trained editor by Wikipedia can understand how to do all the formatting you require. I would GREATLY appreciate it if I could write all of the correct, accurate, accurate biography and description of her life and significance, development of her work in the entry, citing all the many relevant sources of COURSE, and have a trained editor at Wikipedia assist with the proper formatting as it requires an expert, not a scholar in content, not Wikipedia format to do so. Is that possible?? Also I feel it is my duty, as THE scholar on Stettheimer who is the ONLY ONE who after 20 years of work on her life and work, the person who dated ALL her works for the first time, who wrote the ONLY biography of her life, actually spoke to/interviewed for my biography in 1995 the only surviving family members, her lawyer, her extant friends, all of whom are now dead, co-organzed the first full retrospective on her work since she died in 1946, and knows and can identify every building and figure in ALL of her extent paintings, I feel it is my DUTY to write a comprehensive entry on Stettheimer in WIkipedia for future readers and scholars/students to use.

The problems are:

  • as I was writing and adding a great deal of new and corrected information to the Stettheimer entry, I could NOT CHANGE AND ADD NEW SOURCES/FOOTNOTES TO THE ENTRY!!! or EDIT THE ONES THERE THAT WERE CITED WITH FALSE FACTS!! Your editing function on Wikipedia does not allow that!
  • Also after adding a certain amount of information, Wikipedia editing shuts down and doesn't let me add anymore.

Hello @Barbarabloemink:, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. It looks like you've gotten help from various editors on the article's talk page. You mentioned not being able to find your own account's talk page, so just in case this is useful, you will find it here. Thanks, Jessicapierce (talk) 17:05, 11 January 2019 (UTC)


Hi Jesse, I am Jwale2 and I edit here, I need your support. The reason why I need your is that I just want you to list yourself as a participant on my user page I tying to create a user group for my geographical area where i could train a lot more on how to edit on wikipedia but the unfortunate think is that members do no meet the standard requirement that would enable me get a user group for my community. Your support to my project of attaining a user group would key to develop members of my society and also ensure I promote the rich culture of my society. Thank you Jwale2 (talk) 15:41, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Edit on Lumberport, West Virginia[edit]

Jessicapierce, thank you for your time viewing the page of my small town. I did not realize that I had not listed my source when I added the information so thank you for realizing my mistake. On the account of errors in the page, I was mostly just typing whatever my source had written while adding my own play on words here and there, and seeing as how my source was over 40 years old and I am from an area with different ways of saying things, the source was just written for the view of whoever lived around the area. I appreciate your eye for these problems, while being a bit upset that all my hard work was deleted instead of someone just mentioning it on the "Talk" section of the page. Thank you.

Gouldilocks 53 (talk) 20:22, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Gouldilocks 53:, and thanks for getting in touch. The reasons I removed your addition to the page were explained on your talk page here. These problems remain unaddressed in your recent contribution of the same text.
As I said on your talk page, while other editors can always fix minor errors, at some point you're asking too much of others. Your submission is thick with errors; I mentioned several specifics such as capital letters in subject headers, and incorrect punctuation, which you have not fixed. Also, it's still largely unsourced. You say in your edit summary that "a reference for everything up-to 1976 and from there is of my own accord of being raised in and living in the town." Your own experience is simply not considered a source; neither is "ask any citizen of the town". I'm seeing perhaps two references in this entire large history section. There are just too many claims made here, without any sources given, to be acceptable within a wikipedia article.
In addition, I'm sorry, but some of this content is simply not what wikipedia considers noteworthy, such as the closing of the local video store.
I hope you better understand why this text is not acceptable as it currently stands, and why I am removing it again. I am more than happy to work with you on improving and adding to the article, but please gain a better understanding of what wikipedia expects, in terms of writing style and content. Thank you. Jessicapierce (talk) 04:39, 4 February 2019 (UTC)


I notice that you have reverted a number of my wikipedia edits on topics of which I am a scholarly expert. I am just wondering why Wikipedia prefers to cite non-experts and censor the work of actual experts on topics relating to sexuality? Some of my edits deleted refer to correction of inaccuracies and the editors have chosen to maintain the inaccuracies. I cannot continue to support Wikipedia if all my efforts to ensure greater veracity and expertise on it are continually sabotaged by its editors! Best, Dr Alison Moore, research historian at Western Sydney University Spidersquad (talk) 03:10, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Spidersquad:, I'm afraid I will need some more information before I can answer your questions, as I have no idea which articles or edits you're referring to. Thanks, Jessicapierce (talk) 04:39, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Also, as others have mentioned on your talk page, I would really advise you against adding your own work as a source, as that's a conflict of interest and is likely to be removed. Please read the info about COIs posted to your talk page. Thanks, Jessicapierce (talk) 04:45, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Spidersquad, read WP:EXPERT. Read WP:Editorializing and WP:Synthesis. You have already been pointed to WP:COI more than once. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 14:37, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Hi @BilCat:, thanks for the message! All's well, I just decided to spend less time editing Wikipedia around the new year (it was helping me stay sedentary) and the habit sort of stuck.

Reverting changes to Kakrapar Atomic Power Station[edit]

Hey there. I noticed that you revered my changes to the article Kakrapar Atomic Power Station. It was my mistake that I didn't add an edit message. However, I did preview my changes in the Visual Editor (couldn't view through the preview button since I hit publish by mistake). However, the changes I made were mainly to update the articles and remove incontinences with ground realities as well add better sources. I'm not sure how disputed work on Wikipedia but I urge you to reconsider your decision.

PS: I am relatively new to Wikipedia and not sure how 'User Talk' works or it's ultimate purpose. I'm not sure if it appropriate or within standards or guidelines to point things like this in User Talk. However, I saw no better way of contacting you on this.


Hey Jessica,

thanks for the edits! I still struggle a bit with the citations since I haven't really figured out how exactly this is working. But I am working on it! Thanks for your help! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nýlistasafnið (talkcontribs) 12:07, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

No problem, @Nýlistasafnið:! The formatting stuff can take a while to learn, but keep in mind you can always practice in your sandbox (link is at the top of the page). I'm always glad to see an article about the arts being improved, especially by someone who clearly knows and cares about the topic. It would be wonderful if you could add more citations to the article. Thank you for the work you've done so far! Jessicapierce (talk) 15:27, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Help with reporting a bug[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Hi, I would love some help reporting a formatting issue I've seen cropping up lately. This is not at all my area, so I got as far as Wikipedia:Bug reports and feature requests and got very daunted. If there's a more (non-technical) user-friendly way to report this, that would be great. Or if I could just explain the issue in plain English to someone and see if it bears reporting at all, that would be fantastic as well. Thank you! Jessicapierce (talk) 16:11, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Hey @Jessicapierce, could you tell us what the formatting issue is? If you could provide a link to it, or an explanation of what it is, that would help us try and fix the problem. Thanks.  Seagull123  Φ  16:18, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello, and thanks for the quick reply! While patrolling for citation errors, I've seen the same issue crop up over and over again. As far as I can tell, it's always with people using the Visual Editor (no idea if that's relevant). Essentially there are a lot of weird character substitutions occurring in citations. It's always the equal sign =, vertical bar |, and nowiki.
Examples can be seen in these recent edits: here (every citation added), here ("Se=eral yea|t pr=teins have als| been =dent|fied"), here ("Patricia A. Jac|bs, D.Sc.= at the annual meeting of|the America= Society of"), and here (" in Ma|ch=016"). Jessicapierce (talk) 16:29, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Here is a new and rather dramatic example. Jessicapierce (talk) 17:46, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Clan Spalding[edit]

Thank you, Jessica Pierce, for your communications. I can confirm I have no "external relationship" with the people I mentioned in my contribution to the Clan Spalding article, unless happening to live in Scotland or share the name Spalding somehow constitutes a COI. I can assure you that so far from being a "ton of errors", * everything* I wrote derives from reliable, published, if not always online sources.

I'd be grateful if you could demonstrate the erroneous nature of anything I wrote. Indeed, since you seem to reside in the State of Georgia where one claimant to the chieftanship of Spalding seems also to reside, I feel I should ask whether you yourself have a COI in this matter?

Furthermore, the removed content I added to the Marcel Dupre (whom I did not know personally as I was only 3 weeks old when he died) article also derives 100% from published sources.

I am surprised you have taken this action, as I have elsewhere seen unverified and indeed false information on Wikipedia, a case in point being this Dupre article where the utterly subjective claim about virtuosity versus content is unattested and relies on no examples.

I would be grateful if you would address my concerns. Thankyou. Mark G J Spalding (talk) 00:32, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Mark G J Spalding:, and thanks for your reply. I've taken the liberty of tweaking the formatting of your message here so that it displays correctly. (It's bad form to change others' comments on Talk pages, but I wanted to make sure both our messages displayed clearly.)
The COI message I posted on your Talk page was boilerplate info that's commonly shared with users when it seems there may be a conflict of interest. It's something to be aware of, but was not the primary reason I removed your contributions to the Clan Spalding article; I removed it due to a number of other factors. Since we work on a collaborative model, other editors can always step in to fix minor issues. However, at a certain point, it's asking too much work of other people, and your contributions ought to be as correct as possible when submitted. I felt your submission passed this point. As a quick rundown, your edit contained:
  • punctuation errors
  • stray/incorrect words (an errant "on," "I'm" instead of "in")
  • damaged formatting
  • vague wording ("is often said..." - said by whom?; "hated the harshness of the governor")
  • unsourced claims
The content you added to the article is welcome here, but it needs some cleanup work, attention to detail, and some sources. You mention that your information comes from published sources, which is fantastic, and they need not be available online. I'd be glad to help, if you're unsure how to add citations for non-online source material. And please do feel free to edit the article, keeping the above issues in mind.
Regarding the Dupre article, I think I was clear in my edit summary (which you can see in the page history here), but if you'd like to discuss it further, or if I can help with anything else, please do let me know. Thanks, Jessicapierce (talk) 03:19, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Inaccurate credit for Goof Troop[edit]

Hello Jessica,

I apologize for my inadequacies in using the correct methods and code to do a better job communicating my problem with your Goof Troop article. My background is in animation and definitely not on code. The fact is that I have worked in the industry for a long time and know of Mr. Peraza and his iconic work for the Disney Afternoon. He created Goof Troop alone, not with Robert Taylor. Robert was the Producer who came on board AFTER Mike Peraza had come up with the concept, characters designs and personality profiles and pitch.

You are giving away credit to someone who merely managed the series., Mr. Peraza created it.

You cite the following link which many of us use for pod casts, book interviews, D23 panels and more:

Please reread it, Mr. Taylor was the Producer, NOT a creator. I along with other fans of the show want to see just credit served where it is due. Again, I am sorry I am so bad at communicating with this specific type of language. I'm better with a pencil and sketch pad, lol.

Thank you, Maurry DisneyFanForever (talk) 20:58, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Maurry, and thank you for your reply. I have no "dog in this fight" as I know nothing about the topic, and you definitely do seem to know about it. I have no objection to you changing the information on the page to more accurately describe the people involved in Goof Troop's creation. However, that blogspot link is just not going to be seen as a sufficient source.
If you can provide a better source, please do. Another option would be for you to post on the article's Talk page (here) starting a discussion about the changes you'd like to see made to the article. Someone may well step in and make those changes for you, and then you need not worry about any formatting issues.
Just let me know what you'd like to do, and I'll be glad to help, if I can. Best, Jessicapierce (talk) 22:48, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Your recent report at WP:AIV[edit]

Hey! I declined your block request of User:2603:3018:B00:A00:48C0:C7C1:E75C:83E7. What they were doing is removing some redundancies in categories. For instance, Maren Morris was in both Category:American female country singers and Category:American country singer-songwriters. The anon is stating that the latter is a subset of the former, so there's no need to have the artist in both cats. I'm not convinced their logic is 100% sound, but I am certain they're not editing maliciously. You may want to reach out on their talk page and engage them to make sure we're all on the same page. Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks, caknuck ° needs to be running more often 20:30, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Caknuck:, thanks so much for the explanation - that makes perfect sense. I reverted a few edits which I will now go and un-revert, and will indeed post to their talk page. One question though: what about the dead/living category issue? For example, this edit of Ned Miller, which added "Category:Living people" right under "Category:2016 deaths"?
That one looks like an error, and it has been corrected by Bearcat (talk · contribs). If there are others like it, please correct as needed. Cheers, caknuck ° needs to be running more often 19:55, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
Just to be clear, the editor did make some legitimate edits amid their mess, but the bulk of what they do is mess. In the case of Maren Morris, the category they removed was indeed duplicate categorization with another category, but they also removed the same category from many other articles where it wasn't reduplication — basically, they were just indiscriminately removing that category from people regardless of whether it was duplicating another category or not. And adding Category:Living people to dead people wasn't an isolated one-time error, either, but is a persistent calling card of that user's editing patterns. You can see Wikipedia:Long-term abuse/Country music category vandal from Tennessee for more information about this. I gave the IP in question a temporary editblock yesterday, and went through their editing history to review it — about half of what they did had to be reverted, and about half of that (for a quarter of the total) was the addition of "Living people" to dead people.

Free Church of England[edit]

I see what you mean it repeats itself but I copied it with permission from

I think what it means is there was a split in their church and there is a breakaway group but perhaps wording needs amendment.

I'm sorry, but I also don't really understand what you've written here.
If you have copied text from elsewhere, that needs to be made clear.
The link you have included here ( does not lead to anything useful. If you meant you have included text from the history section of that site, the url is . Although you included that link as a citation along with your text, that is not sufficient. Using something as a source does not mean one is free to copy it verbatim. If permission has been granted to do so, that needs to be explicitly stated.
Also, whether permission has been granted or not, any text you add to Wikipedia needs to be readable and make sense. Jessicapierce (talk) 20:31, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for helping to improve my Christian Dior Ready-to-Wear runway collections article. I am still learning and very much appreciate the community's support and patience. I always welcome a fresh pair of eyes. Regarding your question about the citations, when I first began writing many of my fashion-themed articles, I was often citing, but the organization/website transitioned from an editorial publication to a retail site. I've noticed that most of their content was being redirected/migrated to the runway section of another Conde Nast title, Vogue. I can definitely review and update these citations where needed. As for some of the quotes, I transcribed them from the embedded video content on the links provided; again, I believe many of these were

Once again, thank you for your assistance. At one point, I felt targeted by a self-described deletionist, that editor didn't question or try to help. He didn't open it up to discuss and reach a consensus, he just pulled up every Wikipedia article I'd written and deleted them all, despite the fact that I'd received a Barn Star for one of them. I was extremely discouraged and gave up for a while, but I love and believe in Wikipedia and would like to make a valued contribution. I do think there is a place and need for an encyclopedic fashion resource that can live on as an archive in perpetuity for historians, students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in fashion--this has always been my aim when editing and writing articles as part of the Wiki Fashion Project. I've tried to be diligent with my research and sources. I've also adjusted my tone from earlier contributions to be less flowery or opinionated and more balanced, with as much factual detail as possible. I'd like to think I've influenced others, or at least that I'm not alone in this quest, because I've noticed the expansion of other fashion articles, namely the Chanel article, which now includes a section on Fashion Collections and Runway Shows. --Lisacarolinamartinez (talk) 23:03, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
