Disambiguation link notification for March 25[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Moritz von Engelhardt, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Crimea (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.

July 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Gunno Dahlstierna may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

Attribution header[edit]

In your edit to Gunno Dahlstierna you removed the ;Attribution header. I've been putting that in many EB1911-sourced articles where the WP article is completely (or almost so) a copy of the original, as this is. See the discussion at User_talk:Speednat/Archive/2013/Dec#Attribution_header and the guidance at Wikipedia:PLAGIARISM#Where_to_place_attribution. Do you have a specific objection to the tag? David Brooks (talk) 19:56, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

I object to the tag, because it is useless. Any citation is an attribution to my mind. No need to label it as such, or give it a special header. {{EB1911}} or whatever already displays a suitable message, explaining the material is being copied. Library Guy (talk) 21:19, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Sounds persuasive to me. I was putting it in out of caution, because I hadn't followed the plagiarism discussion that PBS referred to, so was interpreting the result conservatively. David Brooks (talk) 21:34, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Unpopulated sister project pages[edit]

Hello. Please see this. Including both populated and unpopulated sister project pages is common Wikipedia practice. --Omnipaedista (talk) 19:44, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

I think it just wastes the time of people who click on a link expecting something and not finding anything. It seems reasonable to wait until there is content to post a link to the page. I wouldn't call it common practice, fortunately, to post links to non-content, but I do see it happen, and I think it is a practice to be discouraged. Library Guy (talk) 21:03, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
One argument for the inclusion is that empty or not those pages exist and we are supposed to link them. A much stronger argument could be that this practice encourages readers/editors to get involved in populating those pages. For example, on January 15 I added a transwiki link to the Wikisource entry "Metaphysics (Ross, 1908)" which at the time was empty. On July 1, another editor populated it. Of course, this could have been done anyway. But I am inclined to believe that those transwiki links do encourage editors to contribute. --Omnipaedista (talk) 21:46, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
One doesn't have to click on an empty link to see there is no content. No link present cries out that there is no content for the subject of a biographical subject in Wikisource, and I would think this would be enough stimulus for the interested editor. There is just the Britannica article for Stobaeus in Wikisource, and that already has a link. Clicking on the Wikiquote link, there are quotes to be found, not just someone's good idea that someone else should find some quotes. I think a project should be at least started to warrant a link. But really there should be something substantial. A lot of people aren't editors, and even for those that are, at least for this one, the practice of advertising non-content is just annoying.

Speedy deletion nomination of Herman Armour Webster[edit]

Hello Library Guy,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Herman Armour Webster for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. st170e (talk) 20:08, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

NSRW on Birkenhead[edit]

Re: Wikisource-logo.svg "Birkenhead". The New Student's Reference Work. 1914.  and "I don't see why a link is needed to an obscure reference work that does add any additional information."

It is a different point of view, from the U.S. 100 years ago. How it summarizes the information I think is interesting. There is an intermediate population figure which I don't see elsewhere. It is comforting that it confirms the trend noted in the History section. I don't think it is needed, but I think it is useful. The Wikisource 1911 Britannica has a Birkenhead article at this point (PD-icon.svg "article name needed". Encyclopædia Britannica (11th ed.). 1911.  Text "Birkenhead" ignored (help)). It is more elaborate, but it hasn't been proofread at this point, and I don't think it is ready for posting. And there is that big blank spot with no in-line links. Library Guy (talk) 19:27, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
If there is something of interest in NSRW to add to the article on Birkenhead, then add it to the main body of the text and use NSRW as a reference. Some where in Wikipedia's standards is the statement that WP is not a "link farm". JMcC (talk) 19:32, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes I've heard this policy. I like the different points of view provided by the external links. Other people seem to as well. A little link farming seems useful. It can be abused of course. I see two other links to sister projects in the "External links" section of the Birkenhead article. I think Wikisource (another sister project) also has things to offer to people interested in Birkenhead, and would like to give notice. In addition to NSRW and the half-baked EB1911 article, there is also Nuttall: Wikisource-logo.svg "Birkenhead". The Nuttall Encyclopædia. 1907.  Not quite as obscure, and it also has a population figure, but it is very brief. Library Guy (talk) 19:58, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, thanks for adding an external link in several articles to the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica. I just thought I'd let you know that the correct method is to use "wstitle=" before the EB1911 article name (or use the Template:EB1911 poster}}. I found a few articles in Category:Wikipedia articles incorporating a citation from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica with an unnamed parameter and corrected a couple e.g. Alexandria, Indiana and Alameda, California. - DivermanAU (talk) 22:31, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

Certainly the use of the template without a parameter for the main arg is deprecated in some circles, but fortunately still allowed. Library Guy (talk) 16:22, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Error in the NIE template[edit]

The following mistake results in a widely propagated inaccuracy to an out-of-copyright citation at Wikipedia. If it can be fixed, the correction will propagate widely, and result in improved information accuracy in the encyclopedia.

The template:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainGilman, D. C.; Peck, H. T.; Colby, F. M., eds. (1905). "article name needed". New International Encyclopedia (1st ed.). New York: Dodd, Mead. 

should reflect the fact that the editors of this first edition were: Daniel Coit Gilman, Harry Thurston Peck, and Frank Moore Colby (see Template:New_International_Encyclopedia).

Instead, it presents the the third editor as "F. Moore" (presenting the middle name, omitting the surname).

Please, indicate here how this might be fixed (or, if easily done, execute the correction yourselves)? Cheers. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 16:18, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

I imagine I am the original author of this template (probably as Bob Burkhardt), and it would be easy enough to correct the author problem by making the authors used conditional on the edition, but it wasn't my idea to put the list of editors in as I think having the link to the NIE article is sufficient if people are curious. I suspect it was PBS, but you can go through the history and figure that out. I think whoever put the list of authors in is the appropriate person to write to on this issue. Library Guy (talk) 15:08, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Fixed (See Template talk:New International Encyclopedia#Error in the NIE template). You wrote the initial script for {{cite NIE}} (which does not contain this error), but this template is older and has had many authors over the years since it was started back in 2006. -- PBS (talk) 18:09, 14 September 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Roland P. Falkner[edit]

Hello, Library Guy. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Roland P. Falkner, for deletion because it's a biography of a living person that lacks references. If you don't want Roland P. Falkner to be deleted, please add a reference to the article.

Ways to improve James Henry Wiggin[edit]

Hi, I'm Yadáyiⁿga. Library Guy, thanks for creating James Henry Wiggin!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Thank you for creating this wonderful article. Could you add footnotes to it? Please let me know if you need any help in doing so!

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse. Yadáyiⁿga (talk) 22:04, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Its hard to see how in-line citations are needed when there is only one reference. When/if further references are introduced, then it would be necessary. Library Guy (talk) 22:11, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Now that I look though, I see that the last line might throw someone. I don't know that that is in DAB. There the link to his son's article is an implicit citation. I hope I have addressed your concerns. Library Guy (talk) 22:17, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
My worry was simply that without footnotes for individual statements, anything anyone inserts could appear to be attributed to the same source. With the book not being immediately accessible (it is, after all, a book) that makes it very difficult for a reader to trace the content. Thank you so much for adding the footnote (and doing so so very promptly!) Yadáyiⁿga (talk) 22:54, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
I don't see how the situation has changed. Someone could certainly still insert material outside of DAB without a citation. Though I use a hard copy, DAB is available electronically through all the libraries in my neighborhood here in Massachusetts, and I suspect elsewhere in the state and the United States. You're welcome for the footnote. I hope to contribute further to the article and would have moved to footnotes eventually I suspect, but I don't bother with them if I'm just using one source, which is often the case for the first draft. Library Guy (talk) 16:12, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

Foreland[edit]

Thanks for your edit to Exmoor however the wikilink to Foreland is to a place on the Isle of Wight, not on the Exmoor coast.— Rod talk 18:24, 27 September 2016 (UTC)

There are also South Foreland & North Foreland. Perhaps "Foreland" should be a Disambiguation page?— Rod talk 18:28, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
This is related to an article I found in the 1911 Britannica on "Foreland, North and South". It doesn't mention the place on the Isle of Wight, but the end of the article does mention a "Foreland" in Devonshire. I put this in a "See also" section at the end of the Foreland article. There seemed useful information to be presented about The Foreland in Devon, but I'm not sure I presented it so people will see it. Apparently you missed it. A disambiguation page I don't think is the right situation for presenting this new information, but I did think of adding North Foreland and South Foreland to the new "see also" section I introduced. Library Guy (talk) 18:38, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
I did see the "see also" but on wikipedia we tend to use disambiguation pages where there are several places (or people or things) with the same name & none of them is the "primary" usage. The alternatives is to add a Hatnote eg {{About}} or {{Other uses}}.— Rod talk 18:43, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
I think there is useful information to be presented. I didn't think a new article was in order. The "see also" to me seemed the most graceful way of presenting it. I'm used to disambiguation articles that switch to various other articles, and in this case there are none to switch to. But perhaps a disambiguation style would be appropriate for presenting the information about the two forelands in the Foreland article? I was aware of the other alternatives you suggest. Since I had a citation, their simple format didn't seem the way to go to me. Library Guy (talk) 18:54, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
But on the Exmoor article, where you have reverted my edit, a reader would reasonably expect clicking on the wikilink Foreland to take them to an article about the place in Devon rather than one on the Isle of Wight and may be confused by this. The Foreland article is about "the easternmost point of the Isle of Wight." & it would just be confusing to try to cover two disparate places hundreds of miles apart in the same article.— Rod talk 19:00, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
I've just found the article about Foreland Point so changed the wikilink to that.— Rod talk 19:02, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Just what was needed. Library Guy (talk) 19:05, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
There are lots of articles which include "Foreland" in their title/place name (eg Foreland Point, North Foreland, South Foreland, Foreland basin, Foreland Island, Foreland Fields (possibly near the Foreland on the Isle of Wight), Foreland Shipping, Foreland Grits). I definately now think a dab page is definitely the way to go.— Rod talk 19:08, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
The blurb in Britannica made a good citation for the first sentence of the Foreland Point article, and it certainly needed a source. And I added a "for" notification there and expanded the "about" notification in Foreland. That is the extent of my ambitions on this topic, though I think your disambiguation page could be useful.
