Re. Correction on Denise Levertov page --

Thanks for the following:

"(Corrected factual error; Washington U holds only a 1-box collection; the papers are at Stanford.)"

I've been focused exclusively on developing the Bibliography, so haven't looked at or evaluated other listings, such as thhat to which you refer. What is more needed is defense of my efforts to add Tables of Contents to the individual titles under Primary Works. Someone before I hadded added two quite a while ago, and those were undisturbed. In no time after my efforts one of my additions was deleted. And after that, becaues of my mention of them, another of mine -- and the two existing -- were also deleted.

At this point I view the continuing objection/s to adding Tables of Contents as harassment, as they are increasingly made up of invented rationales.

Thanks again. JNagarya (talkcontribs) 17:45, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Schlesinger Library may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s.

External links[edit]

Hi, Leofstan. I'm excited to see you're still working on improving the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library article! It's looking quite nice. I did want to clarify one thing, however. I see that you've been adding links to external webpages in the article's body text. If you look at WP:ELPOINTS, a section of the guideline on external links, you'll see it contains, "External links should not normally be used in the body of an article. Instead, include appropriate external links in an "External links" section at the end of the article, and in the appropriate location within an infobox, if applicable." I've removed the links in the article body text. If you think they should be included in the external links section, feel free to re-add them there. Thanks again! GorillaWarfare (talk) 13:53, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Gorilla! I didn't realize--I'll add those links in at the end of the article. I'm on to my next article, by the way--this is totally addictive!! Leofstan (talk) 14:28, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:William Faulkner's Typewriter at the University of Virginia.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:William Faulkner's Typewriter at the University of Virginia.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:44, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

William Faulkner Foundation[edit]

Hello Leofstan, I just created this article using your AfC draft because I was working on starting one anyway and found your version via Google searching which was much better. Strangely it was on a Japanese site.[1] It seemed stalled after 3+ months and looked pretty good. Glad you made the information available until now it wasn't anywhere on the Internet. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 07:20, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Given your material has been successfully combined into the main article, I have submitted your old draft copy for deletion. Rankersbo (talk) 10:34, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Category:Special Collections, which you created, has been nominated for possible deletion, merging, or renaming.

Our Great Virginia[edit]

Thank you for the article. Unfortunately, I had to remove the lyrics to the song since I am assuming they are under copyright. If you feel otherwise, please let me know. Thank you --CutOffTies (talk) 01:03, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
