Skepchickal.jpg

As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.

Warning 1[edit]

Information icon Please do not add original research or novel syntheses of published material to articles as you apparently did to Ann Wigmore. Please cite a reliable source for all of your contributions. Thank you. Jytdog (talk) 00:53, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

That is in the talk page, not in the body of the article. I'm telling you that you need to look for evidence that AWF changed its name to HHI, since your claim (based upon an Internet publication) contradicts a later paragraph in the body of the article. I've been a Wikipedian for a very long time, and we can only tell the truth to the best of our knowledge. But I know from observation that the claims you, Jytdog, are making are factually erroneous. MaynardClark (talk) 01:04, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
That warning is with regard to this edit to the article. Jytdog (talk) 01:07, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Guild of Copy Editors December 2016 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to the December 2016 GOCE newsletter. We had an October newsletter all set to go, but it looks like we never pushed the button to deliver it, so this one contains a few months of updates. We have been busy and successful!

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: Nominations are open for election of Coordinators for the first half of 2017. Please visit the election page to nominate yourself or another editor, and then return after December 15 to vote. Thanks for participating!

September Drive: The September drive was fruitful. We set out to remove July through October 2015 from our backlog (an ambitious 269 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of oldest articles to just 83. We reduced our overall backlog by 97 articles, even with new copyedit tags being added to articles every day. We also handled 75% of the remaining Requests from August 2016. Overall, 19 editors recorded copy edits to 233 articles (over 378,000 words).

October Blitz: this one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 16 through 22 October; the theme was Requests, since the backlog was getting a bit long. Of the 16 editors who signed up, 10 editors completed 29 requests. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all editors who took part.

November Drive: The November drive was a record-breaker! We set out to remove September through December 2015 from our backlog (239 articles), and by the end of the month, we had cut that pile of old articles to just 66, eliminating the two oldest months! We reduced our overall backlog by 523 articles, to a new record low of 1,414 articles, even with new tags being added to articles every day, which means we removed copy-editing tags from over 800 articles. We also handled all of the remaining Requests from October 2016. Officially, 14 editors recorded copy edits to 200 articles (over 312,000 words), but over 600 articles, usually quick fixes and short articles, were not recorded on the drive page.

Housekeeping note: we do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your Watchlist.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdslk.

Parfit[edit]

Is there a source for this? SarahSV (talk) 16:44, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

The death notice was the local paper. Anna Riedl and I are now discussing the claim about the photo. MaynardClark (talk) 16:47, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
I see only one source so far, but it's on Twitter too. SarahSV (talk) 16:51, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
What is the antecedent for 'this' in 'Is there a source for this?'? What are we discussing? MaynardClark (talk) 17:02, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
It's okay, it's confirmed. I was nervous about relying on just one source for his death. SarahSV (talk) 19:48, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Happy New Year! MaynardClark (talk) 20:00, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Stare Source[edit]

Hey mate that would be a great quote to include in the Frederick J. Stare Article, but I can't find a publication of the speech anywhere. Did you attend the lecture and maybe have a transcript or a recording... or perhaps a contact? Yours! Bengt Hennig (talk) 01:28, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

I attended the meeting at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health. I heard Dr. Willett make the comment. I wish I had audiorecorded it (or better yet, videorecorded it) and posted it for public access. However, THIS URL has an interesting article (duplicating information found in the Award lecture - at that time): https://www.statnews.com/2016/09/12/sugar-industry-harvard-research/.

Paging through the letters, Kearns was “shocked” by his level of cooperation with the sugar industry, she said.

There are more comments like that in this and other articles. MaynardClark (talk) 03:27, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Limitarianism (disambiguation)‎[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Limitarianism (disambiguation)‎ has been proposed for deletion. The proposed deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

  • Please note that disambiguation pages are meant to be navigation aids for readers and searchers, not articles. It looked like you wanted to write an article about Christian limitarianism. I encourage you to do that, and once the article exists, then make a dab page. Be sure to read through MOS:DAB first. Thanks! — Gorthian (talk) 07:52, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
  • @Gorthian: I think I've tidied it up now: we have:
PamD 07:43, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much! At the least, readers are confused when they read what appear to be the same word but might in context refer two quite different ideas, unrelated to one another. There may be others, but I know of these, and now the Wikipedia helps readers see these two divergent streams of intellectual development, where dictionaries do not. MaynardClark (talk) 16:49, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
That's exactly what dab pages are for! Many thanks to PamD for making it all work. — Gorthian (talk) 01:06, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Guild of Copy Editors February 2017 News[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors February 2017 News
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello everyone, and welcome to the February 2017 GOCE newsletter. The Guild has been busy since the last time your coordinators sent out a newsletter!

December blitz: This one-week copy-editing blitz ran from 11 through 17 December; the themes were Requests and eliminating the November 2015 backlog. Of the 14 editors who signed up, nine editors completed 29 articles. Barnstars and rollover totals are located here. Thanks to all who took part.

January drive: The January drive was a great success. We set out to remove December 2015 and January and February 2016 from our backlog (195 articles), and by 22 January we had cleared those and had to add a third month (March 2016). At the end of the month we had almost cleared out that last month as well, for a total of 180 old articles removed from the backlog! We reduced our overall backlog by 337 articles, to a low of 1,465 articles, our second-lowest month-end total ever. We also handled all of the remaining requests from December 2016. Officially, 19 editors recorded 337 copy edits (over 679,000 words).

February blitz: The one-week February blitz, focusing on the remaining March 2016 backlog and January 2017 requests, ran from 12 to 18 February. Seven editors reduced the total in those two backlog segments from 32 to 10 articles, leaving us in good shape going in to the March drive.

Coordinator elections for the first half of 2017: In December, coordinators for the first half of 2017 were elected. Jonesey95 stepped aside as lead coordinator, remaining as coordinator and allowing Miniapolis to be the lead, and Tdslk and Corinne returned as coordinators. Thanks to all who participated!

Speaking of coordinators, congratulations to Jonesey95 on their well-deserved induction into the Guild of Copy Editors Hall of Fame. The plaque reads: "For dedicated service as lead coordinator (2014, 1 July – 31 December 2015 and all of 2016) and coordinator (1 January – 30 June 2015 and 1 January – 30 June 2017); exceptional template-creation work (considerably streamlining project administration), and their emphasis on keeping the GOCE a drama-free zone."

Housekeeping note: We do not send a newsletter before every drive or blitz. To have a better chance of knowing when the next event will start, add the GOCE's message box to your watchlist.

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators: Miniapolis, Jonesey95, Corinne and Tdslk.

Animal liberationist[edit]

The standard practice is to redirect articles about occupations to the related topic. See archaeologist, animal rights activist. There's also a problem in that some of the content was not cited.

A couple of things:

  • Perhaps some of the content applies to the animal rights movement article.
  • It looks like there's already an article for Animal Rights Without Liberation - so that section is not needed
  • You may want check out the {{Animal rights}} navigation template, based upon the number of "See also" items that were in the article to see if there are other items that should be added to that template.–CaroleHenson (talk) 04:21, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
  • My objection to what you did (in redirecting the article) is that (a) an animal liberationist is not an 'occupation' and (b) the Animal Liberationist article was focused upon what self-described animal liberationists think that they believe. The Animal liberation movement article talks about action and what is done in the name of 'animal' advocacy, which is somewhat different (and seemingly written as a denigration). The issues of rights vs. optimized consequences seems for the individual 'humane believers' to be crucial, foundational, central, pivotal to who each of these living persons considers herself or himself to be - which then eventuates in both public and private behaviors. MaynardClark (talk) 05:03, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Karoun Demirjian, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Armenian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Proposed deletion of Shekhar Saxena[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Shekhar Saxena has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. reddogsix (talk) 02:12, 9 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of David Freeman (journalist)[edit]

Hello MaynardClark,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged David Freeman (journalist) for deletion, because it seems to be inappropriate for a variety of reasons. For more details please see the notice on the article.

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.

Norman Daniels categories[edit]

Thanks for your message, but unfortunately you've not really understood how categories work on Wikipedia. I can see that the article says that he studied at Balliol College, which is why he's - correctly - in Category:Alumni of Balliol College, Oxford. However, there is a Wikipedia category principle that articles are placed in the lowest level category applicable, and not in the parent categories above it. This is set out at Wikipedia:Categorization#Subcategorization (shortcut "WP:SUPERCAT", to which I referred you earlier in an edit summary, but which you would appear to have missed). Put simply, it says, Paris goes into the category "Cities of France" but not also into the higher-level category "Populated places in France", because the category "Cities of France" is itself a member of the "Populated places in France" category (it is a subcategory, in other words), and so all members of the subcategory "Cities of France" are included in the parent category "Populated places in France" by being part of the subcategory.

Applying this to the Oxford situation: (a) Wikipedia has categories for alumni of every Oxford college and hall, e.g. Category:Alumni of Balliol College, Oxford; (b) these are all subcategories of Category:Alumni of the University of Oxford; (c) if they are in the subcategory for their college, they should not be in the parent category for the university; (d) the OU alumni category even has a big sign on it, {{Category diffuse}}, which says in clear terms "Pages in this category should be moved to subcategories where applicable. This category may require frequent maintenance to avoid becoming too large. It should directly contain very few, if any, pages and should mainly contain subcategories." In other words, we put Oxford alumni in college alumni categories, not college alumni categories and the university alumni category as well.

All I am doing, therefore, is applying the general editing guideline at Wikipedia:Categorization#Subcategorization and the specific notice at Category:Alumni of the University of Oxford. Norman Daniels belongs only at Category:Alumni of Balliol College, Oxford. He does not belong at Category:Alumni of the University of Oxford because he is in the appropriate college subcategory and Wikipedia does not double-up on such categories. Still less does he belong at Category:Balliol College, Oxford, which ought to be for articles directly about the college itself, rather than a general repository for anyone who's studied there. I hope this makes sense. Please remove the stray categories - and, better still, find a reference that shows that he went to Balliol, because the article doesn't have a reference for this claim at present. Thanks, BencherliteTalk 00:33, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

I had looked for that but had been unable to locate it when I looked. I appreciate (and had already understood) that principle. MaynardClark (talk) 00:36, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Good. It's a pity you found it necessary to revert me twice and leave me a message telling me to stop what I was doing, all because you couldn't find a category that was there all along. If you understood the principle, why did you keep adding the university alumni cat instead of the Balliol alumni cat? BencherliteTalk 00:42, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
He was also a Faculty member of Tufts College AND Tufts University Medical School. Then he was a Faculty member of HSPH AND Harvard University, so those are NOT the same; but the rule you cited, it seems that there should be two categories for his Faculty roles at Tufts and two for Harvard. Harvard's 'every tub on its own bottom' rule - and several campuses - 3 main campuses and quite a few other campuses - is part of the reason for this. The PhD program in health policy is in Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts. MaynardClark (talk) 00:45, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, I'm happy to defer to you on that one! Good luck with finding sources for further improvements to the article. BencherliteTalk 00:48, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

Citation needed[edit]

Thank you for your recent contribution to Consistent life ethic‎. You added a useful detail. However, you didn't cite any sources. Can you add a citation for where you found the information in this this edit? Thank you. Sondra.kinsey (talk) 18:59, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

I had thought that references to this information would have already been in the link to Rachel MacNair's Wikipedia article, but I have added such references (maybe different references) to the Consistent Life Ethic article. MaynardClark (talk) 20:40, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Longi Silicon Materials[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Longi Silicon Materials, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia.

Proposed deletion of Michelle Carter (defendant)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Michelle Carter (defendant) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Wikipedia is not News and WP:1EVENT.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. reddogsix (talk) 20:40, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Microsoft Stream[edit]

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I replaced your edits on Microsoft Stream because of the fact that they were promotional and relied on Microsoft, the creator of the service, as the single source. RileyBugz会話投稿記録 19:44, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, though I think it's important to get something out there ASAP, and I think that a link to a Microsoft website is useful. I added a link to Microsoft mobile services.MaynardClark (talk) 19:46, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Michelle Carter (manslaughterer)[edit]

Hi. Can you tell me where you found out that Michelle Carter's middle name is "D."? I have looked everywhere, and I cannot find that. Thanks. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 19:10, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Middle initial, but you're right. The court documents do not list a middle initial (MI), and there's 'Michelle D. Carter' who shows up voluminously in Google searches. IMO, we should not use a middle initial for this Michelle Carter, but I also feel that we should not write this article in ways which encourage anger and spite toward her. MaynardClark (talk) 19:14, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
All of the Google searches are merely "repeating" from this article. And this article had the middle initial of "D" placed in there by mistake. I removed it. Joseph A. Spadaro (talk) 19:28, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

Final warning - copyright violations[edit]

Hi MaynardClark. After coming upon the blatant copyright violation and plagiarism in Microsoft Stream, I've taken a look at some of your other edits for copyright issues, and unfortunately I've found many, after looking at 20 of your approximately 70 article creations and having not looked at any of your edits to articles.

I do not know if I caught all of these types of edits in even the small part I checked, of your extensive editing history of close to 20,000 edits. The way many of these were added is utterly exhausting to ferret out. You start articles with a sentence that seems fine, and then make thirty edits one of which adds three word-for-word copy pasted sentences. This is is one reason it's such a problem when an editor like you whose been here for a long time is found to be doing this. It would go a long way if, after reading this and understanding the issue, you were to find any other edits where you copied and listing them so that the illegal content can be revision deleted.

Understand: You cannot copy and paste previously written material (other than, short quotations, clearly marked as such by the use of quote marks (or a block quoting method) and cited to the source of the copying using an inline citation, which is allowed under fair use). Reliable sources are cited to show where the information exists that verifies your additions, but you don't copy what they say. As we often tell people: "You may use external websites or other writings as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words." You should also understand that copyright infringement is not avoided by surface modification of existing content, e.g., changing a word here and a word there, while substantially retaining the wording, structure and creative expression in the original material. See Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing.

We often grant more leeway for other types of good faith but improper edits, before resorting to blocks, but copyright violations are a problem of a more serious nature. Accordingly, I am posting here under the section header "Final warning", so you clearly understand and are not taken by surprise. Any further similar edits will subject you to an immediate and indefinite block from further editing. Regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 03:38, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Page protection[edit]

I am not sure which problems you are specifically referring to on those articles? But feel free to request page protection, as I do not have the authority to so grant. Thanks! ‡ Єl Cid, Єl Caɱ̩peador ᐁT₳LKᐃ 15:06, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Harvard speeches links[edit]

One editor has edited solely to place external links in the body of articles; they're all links to the same source and often placed in inappropriate sections and given inappropriate weight. This is despite being asked by multiple editors to stop or change. If this is important enough to include in articles - and I am very dubious - then it needs to be included in a different way. As it is, this editor has definitely crossed the line into a link spammer. ElKevbo (talk) 23:32, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

What do you suggest? I see that, on your webpage you cited Stanley N. Katz in “In Information Technology, Don’t Mistake a Tool for a Goal” Thought provoking! MaynardClark (talk) 23:35, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
I suggest that any editor who believes the material should be included in an article take it up in that article's Talk page to determine if there is a consensus one way or another; we're at the "D" part of WP:BRD.
(And Katz isn't the only person who has said that; many other people have said the same thing or something very similar. He just said it with the kind of phrasing that made it into a usable domain name. :) ) ElKevbo (talk) 23:57, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
I'm willing to do that, but I read constantly that Wikipedia editors are to assume good faith. MaynardClark (talk) 23:59, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
