Copy editing[edit]

Hello Maximilian,

I happened to notice your appeal regarding the edit by the IP below, so had a look at the article. Although I live in the UK, I took the liberty to knock this addition into shape and in line with Wikipedia style. I have been careful not to remove too much copy, although I believe it is still too lengthy. I read that the editor is elderly and is known to you.

Recent editing, Edmund, Wisconsin, USA, by new editor

I imagine that it is Mrs Peter Martin (I deleted that from the start of the new edit)

I have posted an encouraging note on the Talk page of IP 64.222.123.149, to explain to the editor that I have been trying to help. Kind regards, -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 11:19, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi-I added a citation to the Edmund, Wisconsin article with the information from the new edits. However, the new edits still need citations. I will start looking around for any books about the history of Edmund, Wisconsin and of Cobb, Wisconsin. Thanks-RFD (talk) 11:25, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, RFD,for that. -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 11:38, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

You are welcome. Several counties in Wisconsin like Portage County, Wisconsin have histories that are online. I am not sure about Iowa County. The histories are probably there but may not be on line. The local public libraries probably have the information. Thank you-RFD (talk) 11:44, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
to both of you, thanks! i appreciate this. and i informed the editor (who is in fact one of the curators of the history society of berlin, vermont). if he's not too frustrated he'll open an account with wikipedia soon. in fact he has to, because he wants to upload historic photos his father took in the early 20th century. Maximilian (talk) 11:44, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
and maybe one of you can help copy editing here: Cobb, Wisconsin. a (far too) massive history section by the same user, with a massive revert. Maximilian (talk) 11:49, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

I would be happy to take a look at that, too, but as a Welshman who has never visited the USA, I shall have to tread very carefully, not to tread on toes! Although I am sure RFD will keep an eye on my copy editing. -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 12:01, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

I reverted the good faith edit of Chip123456 with the Cobb, Wisconsin article. The Village of Cobb has a website with a history section that I added that as a citation. I am concern about possible copyright violations in the Edmund and Cobb, Wisconsin articles and this needs to be address as soon as possible. This could be released into the public domain but we just do not know. Thank you-RFD (talk) 12:39, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
thanks! i informed the user. Maximilian (talk) 12:45, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Note: It has been (rightly) removed again by another user.--Chip123456 (talk) 14:53, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks-RFD (talk) 15:37, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Hello again, Maximilian!

Regarding Edmund only

It would seem that I have been wasting my time:

It is surely not published material, and has not been copied to Wikipedia. Could you comment please. Kind regards, -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 17:48, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

The edits in the Edmund, Wisconsin article were probably copied from the Dodgeville Chronicle dating to 1935. Wikipedia has a strict policy involving copyright material that is not in the public domain. Many thanks-RFD (talk) 18:25, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
The article is cover by the United States Copyright Law even though is may not be published on line-thank youRFD (talk) 18:40, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

i'm sorry for the mess. i wasn't aware of the fact that the user wasn't aware of copyright restrictions. at least one of the texts he inserted (the one about the history of edmund until 1935) was indeed published later than 1930. it's sometimes hard to understand for newbees of wikipedia how the CC system works. Maximilian (talk) 19:31, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry we were all newbie once-you learn by doing. One thing that helps is being nice to people and if necessary moved away from a bad situation until things settled-Thank you-RFD (talk) 19:50, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I couldn't agree more, Maximilian. I felt it was a shame if anecdotal material like that is lost forever as we all get older. Just wanted to help. __ Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 20:23, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
EDMUND again: today or tomorrow the now officially registered user will probably insert a brief historical section into the article about Edmund, Wisconsin. he just sent me the text, and it's basically okay now. Maximilian (talk) 17:46, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
Excellent news. I shall keep an eye open! Thank you for the information. -- Gareth Griffith-Jones (talk) 17:53, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
