Welcome to Wikipedia, KarenLMasters! Thank you for your contributions. I am Marek69 and I have been editing Wikipedia for some time, so if you have any questions feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. You can also check out Wikipedia:Questions or type {{help me}} at the bottom of this page. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); that will automatically produce your username and the date. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Marek.69 talk 11:34, 13 September 2014 (UTC)


Hi Karen, per WP:GNG you can demonstrate notability by showing "significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject." GiantSnowman 18:21, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll look into it outside of wikipedia then and get back to it. :) KarenLMasters (talk) 08:40, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Redirects and maiden names etc.[edit]

Hi Karen, nice work on women scientists! You asked how wikipedia deals with maiden names. Basically through redirect pages: now Mary Evershed's been turned into a redirect page, linking to it speeds through to the longer name form. (Here's a link to the unredirected page: Mary Evershed ). It's especially important for Arabic, Chinese etc. people whose names are variously transliterated, and for people who change their name with their perceived status - women, titled aristocrats, Jesuits and so forth. It's always worth looking for variant name forms, and adding extra redirects where you know there might be different names used. Well done too for persisting past the complaints higher up this page - if there's anything you want to ask about, feel free to ping me for advice. Best wishes, Dsp13 (talk) 17:13, 23 October 2012 (UTC)


Hi Karen -- Glad to see one of the contributors from the Royal Society edit-a-thon. I've been working to add women scientists to Wikipedia for a while -- so glad when more people join up with the same mission! Feel free to ping me if you have ever issues or confusions. Cheers, Laura Quilter / Lquilter (talk) 21:34, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

talk question[edit]

Thanks Dsp13 and Lquilter. First question - am I supposed to respond like this on talk, or on your talk pages....? KarenLMasters (talk) 15:12, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

either responding on your own talk page, or doing so on ours, is absolutely fine. Some editors declare personal preferences about this on their talk page - either that they like to keep the thread together on one page (so they can see it all at once) or that they prefer to have the thread distributed across the talk pages (so that they get automatically told when someone has replied to them on their talk page). As I've responded to you here on your talk page, I've put your talk page on my watchlist so that I'll be vaguely aware if you respond! Dsp13 (talk) 14:02, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

English South Coast Meetup[edit]

Hi Karen, you are hereby invited to the South Coast Meetup.

Kind Regards -- Marek.69 talk 23:00, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the invite Marek, but sadly I won't be able to make it as I'm in Birmingham area that weekend. We are making progress on changing the image licence on SDSS images I think. So far everyone is in favour, so we just have to get it formally approved. :) KarenLMasters (talk) 08:43, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Contacting Editors from the Ada Lovelace Editathons[edit]

Hi Karen,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your talk page. I’m a new Editor to Wikipedia, part of a small research team based at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I’m getting in touch as we’re trying to contact all the Editors who were involved in the Ada Lovelace Editathons in Oxford or London. If you have been, or still are, involved in editing, whatever the scale of your involvement, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about your experiences. In the first instance, we’ve set up a short (10 minute) survey, which you can access via my User Talk Pages. If you are interested in helping with our research project, please can you drop me a line?

Thanks, RuthPage (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:52, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
