Your edits to Joseph Medill Patterson[edit]

Thanks, Jonxwood, for your edits. One minor point: his only son, James Joseph Patterson, was born out of wedlock to Joseph Medill Patterson's mistress, whom he later married. Also you spelled wife "wive". Whether it should be explicitly stated that she was his mistress or not, stating that it was his wife is not correct. —Preceding unsigned comment added by History amateur (talkcontribs) 20:20, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

Your edits to Mount Pleasant, Washington, D.C.[edit]

Hi, Jonxwood. I'm dropping you a note to tell you that I've just reverted a series of edits you made to Mount Pleasant, Washington, D.C.. I explained my thinking on the talk page there, and I thought to drop you a note so that you wouldn't be discouraged by what appears to be a wholesale rejection of your work. It's not intended as such. The gist of it was that while I thought you had a lot of good ideas in the edits, the final product had several glitches in it that would be pretty difficult and time-consuming to clean up - little grammatical errors like apostrophes in plurals, non-Wiki-style links, and a few other things. The other problem is that because you edited so many parts of the article pretty much at once, it's very difficult to compare the old version to the new one to see how they compare substantively. Other editors may disagree with what I did, and change it right back; but if not then what I plan to do is take a look at your changes and try to work some or most of them one or two at a time so that the other editors can see what I'm doing, and can more easily undo individual changes that they may not agree with. You seem to have a good sense of how to organize an article - my only two suggestions would be to look hard at what you have done, using the preview function, to make sure your new text is clean; and make changes a bit more incrementally. Good luck! JohnInDC (talk) 13:01, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

One specific remark I want to add is about your edits in Carl Sandburg. I stumbled upon this article just a few minutes ago and saw it didn't have a lead. Immediately, I thought I would add one and I did. It was only afterwards that I took a look at the article history. I didn't really scrutinize your edits, but you seem to have done a good job. It is only conventional to have a lead section. You know more about Sandburg than I do, which is what I read in the article really. So if you take a look at the Wikipedia:Lead section guidelines, you can probably do a better job than I did. --Atavi (talk) 08:08, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

About edit summaries[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hi there. When editing an article on Wikipedia there is a small field labeled "Edit summary" under the main edit-box. It looks like this:Edit summary text box

The text written here will appear on the Recent changes page, in the page revision history, on the diff page, and in the watchlists of users who are watching that article. See m:Help:Edit summary for full information on this feature.

Filling in the edit summary field greatly helps your fellow contributors in understanding what you changed, so please always fill in the edit summary field. If you are adding a section, please do not just keep the previous section's header in the Edit summary field – please fill in your new section's name instead. Thank you.

Disambiguation link notification for October 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Jewett W. Adams, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page University of Nevada (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
