To-Do[edit]

For my personal reference...

MaryGaulke (talk) 19:20, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Page view tool (and other stuff)[edit]

Are you aware that it is easy (well, relatively easy) to instantly see how many readers have accessed a page, as well as other useful stats. For example, it tells me that there have been 99,385 pageviews of LinkedIn over the last 30 days.

If this would be helpful, you simply need to add:

mw.loader.load('//meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Hedonil/XTools/XTools.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

to your common.js file (which does not yet exist).

If this sounds like a bad infomercial (I'll understand) ask at the Wikipedia:Help desk and they will confirm it is legitimate.

If you do not know how to do it, let me know and I'll do it for you.--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:30, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

This is really neat! Never experimented with it before but very cool. Thanks for the tip. Mary Gaulke (talk) 13:37, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I thought you would find it helpful :) --S Philbrick(Talk) 14:03, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker). Dear MaryGaulke and Sphilbrick. I love that xtool and am disappointed that it is totally disabled while noted to be under "maintenance". I hear they are building something better based on current abilities. Probably a back-burner Gadget though. User:Hedonil has left the building. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 21:52, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Man, Checkingfax, I've been bummed to see it out of commission too. If I run across a worthy replacement I'll be sure to drop a line. :) Mary Gaulke (talk) 20:05, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Recent e-flux edits[edit]

Hi, Thank you for your edits to the e-flux page. I actually wrote the introduction and subsequent paragraphs after which e-flux copied this text to use on their about page. I can see how this may be confusing but hopefully this clarifies. Also I would like to amend the citations you flagged in the references section but I can't find where to correct his in the code—can you let me know so that we can remove the alerts on the page? Many thanks

Ah, that's helpful to know! I would make a note of that fact on the article's Talk page so no one else adds the copy and paste notice back in.
The code for each reference is embedded in the article where the source is first referenced - so for instance, you'll find the code for the first two references right after the first sentence of the article. Does that make sense?
P.S. Don't forget to sign talk page posts with four tildes. There's a button for it at the bottom of the editor. :) Mary Gaulke (talk) 22:11, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
Thank you Mary! I'll add it to the talk page and will work through those changes to the citations. Morelcasares (talk) 20:56, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Mahensingha Talk 07:18, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much for reviewing! Would you be up for adding links to this page to the Robert Adams disambiguation page and Analog Devices? (Bob is already mentioned in the second article, he just needs his name linked.) I'm asking you rather than doing it myself because I have a COI. I would really appreciate any help! Mary Gaulke (talk) 15:11, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Dow Corning[edit]

How about getting the Dow Corning article a higher resolution version of the logo. See Exxon Mobil or Apple, Inc. where we have an svg file that has unlimited resolution. Svg files store the image as vectors that can be scaled to any size while retaining resolution.

That's a great tip, thank you!

Orphaned non-free image File:Dow Corning Logo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Dow Corning Logo.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 22:43, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

@Stefan2: Hi, thanks for the notification. My goal is to get this image added to Dow Corning to replace the lower-resolution version of the logo currently featured in the article; however, I do not want to edit the article myself as I have a conflict of interest. (I work for a communications firm that represents Dow Corning.) If you have a moment, I would really appreciate it if you swapped in the new upload; otherwise, I'll be working in the article's Talk page to get this change made ASAP. Thank you!

punctuation and fixes to Bleach (American band)[edit]

You made a change to the Bleach (American band) article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bleach_%28American_band%29&diff=677677569&oldid=668385014 In that edit you too

"Epidermis Girl",

to

"Epidermis Girl,"

MOS:LQ states in part, "On the English Wikipedia, use logical quotation style in all articles, regardless of the variety of English in which they are written." What that means is that unless the song title ended in a comma, the comma should not be part of the content in the quotes. I fixed that one, but you seemed to indicate that you were going to make more such edits. Please be careful to use logical quotation style. Walter Görlitz (talk) 02:23, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that! I'll make sure that's consistent throughout the article. By "more to come" I just meant I'm planning to do further cleanup of the article (apart from punctuation) so no worries there. Mary Gaulke (talk) 15:59, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:07, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Edit requests[edit]

Hi Mary. I've started making some of the changes you requested on the talk page. My weekend was a write-off, but I'll nibble away at the rest over the course of this week. Cheers. --Drm310 (talk) 18:47, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

I so appreciate you taking the time, Drm310! Let me know if there's anything I can do to streamline the process. Mary Gaulke (talk) 03:38, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
You are welcome, Mary. I did a little more editing and reworked the "Users" section into "Customers" (calling them "notable" seemed redundant). I broke them out into subheadings for a more succinct list, and added Sports Illustrated under the heading of predictive analytics.
I see there are a few unsourced items in that customer list, though. I would encourage you to find sources for those, or else they may have to be taken out. --Drm310 (talk) 05:56, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
Drm310 This is awesome, thank you! Regarding the unsourced customers — Nest Labs and iRhythm are both mentioned in the GigaOM article that is the ref for the elevator company listed right below them. And here's a ref for Credit Suisse: Shah, Sooraj (7 October 2014). "Credit Suisse saves £500k a month using Splunk, with Oracle database set to be decommissioned". Computing Magazine. Retrieved 24 March 2016. 
One more thing: It looks like the only pending item from my original request is the fourth bullet, posing a new version of the first paragraph of the "Products" section that is fully sourced. Would you be up for taking a look at that and letting me know what you think? Thank you again! Mary Gaulke (talk) 22:12, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi again, Mary. I have fixed the citations in the Customers section. As for your last outstanding item, I would suggest the second sentence be reworded slightly to this:
It was developed in response to the demand for comprehensible and actionable data reporting for executives outside a company's IT department.
Let me know if you agree with this revision. Thanks. --Drm310 (talk) 20:42, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Drm310 Yes, that sounds great to me—thank you! Mary Gaulke (talk) 14:09, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
I have completed the last change. I think that's a wrap! --Drm310 (talk) 14:42, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Woohoo! Thank you again! Mary Gaulke (talk) 15:22, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Managing a conflict of interest[edit]

Information icon Hello, MaryGaulke. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places or things you have written about in the article Tile (software), you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your circle, your organization, its competitors, projects or products;
  • instead propose changes on the talk pages of affected articles (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please familiarize yourself with relevant policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. This is an FYI so you can add a COI notice to any Talk pages you post COI edit requests on. Also so you know about all the COI templates you can use here and there. {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 21:11, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Checkingfax, thanks for stopping by! To clarify — is this just an FYI, or is there a specific policy violation that I should correct? Mary Gaulke (talk) 20:48, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Hi MaryGaulke. I am not an expert, nor have I really taken a look. I was giving you the boilerplate so you could figure it out on your own. Have you added the topper template to the Talk page of each article you edit for pay? The one that leads back to your User page COI declaration. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 21:47, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
I have not, but I can certainly start! Good call. I am all about disclosure everywhere I can be. Mary Gaulke (talk) 20:08, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Robert Bernshteyn.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Robert Bernshteyn.jpg and for sending in an email to our OTRS team. Unfortunately, the permissions received were not sufficient. Due to this a tag has been placed on the image requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F11 of the criteria for speedy deletion. This is due to the image being tagged {{OTRS received}} for longer then 30 days without permissions being confirmed and no further responses have been received to attempt to resolve the permission issue.

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 "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. --Majora (talk) 00:24, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
