John Avlon marketing his book.[edit]


So I noticed a sentence in the "radical center" wiki with no citation.

The definitive history of "Centrism" in America, and probably the best-selling radical centrist book to date[citation needed], is John Avlon's Independent Nation (2004, pbk. 2005).

I was unaware that sales figures were kept for "radical centrist" publications, so I did some searching for a top 10 list of radical centrists books by various years (2009, 2008, 2007 etc..). Unfortunately, I was unable to find such a list.

So, I removed the sentence. Then I went to John Avlon's wiki to remove the following sentence, which cites as its source the sentence in the "radical center" wiki that has no citation!

Independent Nation has been called, "the definitive history of 'Centrism' in America, and probably the best-selling radical centrist book to date."

Unfortunately, I'm a newbie so I can't change the page. I imagine there were some "angry" edits made in the past few months which is why the page is protected. Nevertheless, the above sentence strikes me as pure unsupported marketing which shouldn't have a place on a factual bio page.

Greetings. Because you have already cast a vote for the 2013 Arbitration Committee Elections, I regret to inform you that due to a misconfiguration of the SecurePoll we've been forced to strike all votes and reset voting.

Thank you for taking care of the correct sourcing for BLPs, with care and attention, patience and diligence, and for treating editors as living persons, following the spirit of policy rather than letter, - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

Invitation to Adelaide Wikipedia Users Group meetings[edit]

Riverside Precinct Adelaide

Next: T.B.A.
Last: 6 July 2014
This box: view  talk  edit

Hi, in case you're not already aware of it, a group of Adelaide Wikipedians has been meeting on a monthly basis since April, with the aim of improving the scope and quality of articles on South Australian topics. We meet at UniSA's City West campus, and our 23 July meeting will have a guest speaker from the National Trust of SA.

This coming Sunday, 6 July, we will be holding our first Edit-a-thon. This will be an opportunity for new editors to come and learn either basic or more advanced editing from very experienced wikipedians, so if you know anyone who would like to get some practice, please let them know - and beginners will be very welcome. Cheers, Bahudhara (talk) 05:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
