Adrianne Wadewitz Memorial edit-a-thons[edit]

Adrianne Wadewitz edit-a-thons in Southern New England
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.

Disambiguation link notification for February 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rose Frisch, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Providence and American (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.

Personhood[edit]

Here is your revert. Perhaps you know the better way to indicate the logical fallacy, then do it, please. However, given your logic, circular reasoning is appropriate for the article page. Besides, what already (properly) appears on the talk page? My text, or the whole article? 85.193.232.131 (talk) 04:08, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Oops - sorry - you mean the article talk page. But the average user does NOT read any talk page. Besides, my information is about a very serious logical fallacy, unacceptable in any encyclopedia.
Please, answer on the article talk page. 85.193.232.131 (talk) 04:24, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm DissidentAggressor. I wanted to let you know that I removed one or more external links you added to the main body of Richard H. Schwartz. Generally, any relevant external links should be listed in an "External links" section at the end of the article and meet the external links guidelines. Links within the body of an article should be internal Wikilinks. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. The Dissident Aggressor 04:02, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Richard H. Schwartz. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted or removed. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. Repeated vandalism can result in the loss of editing privileges. ELs go at the bottom per my previous message.

Wary of promotionalism[edit]

Were you not a long term editor, with a number of quite good articles to your credit, I would be placing a template warning for promotional editing. Some of the additional material you added to Miranda Esmonde-White in an attempt to build up her bio is quite excessive, and some of your other work seems devoted to the praise of particular dietary practices more than to the biography of the individual. I think I managed to deal with the Esmonde-white article sufficiently to avoid deletion, but I urge you to remember that quality rather than amount of material is what shows notability. I recognize it can be difficult sometimes to separate the explanation of what someone promotes, from promotion of the ideas, but there is a difference. (I sometimes word the difference as promotion is what the subject wants to say, while encycopedic content is what the reader who wants to know something about the person would want to know. (There may also be some medical claims in these articles not supported by MEDRES quality sources--I think the application of MedRes is a little over-strict sometimes, but the rule is basically a good idea) Along another tack, you might want to look again at Designated Member Review, which needs explanation, not the reprinting of formal guidelines. DGG ( talk ) 20:45, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

"I think I managed to deal with the Esmonde-white article sufficiently to avoid deletion" - Thank you. MaynardClark (talk) 00:49, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Ralph Nader[edit]

Why does the Arabic spelling of his surname belong in the first sentence of his bio? Did he ever live in an Arabic-speaking country? --Metropolitan90 (talk) 13:29, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Reasonable question. Why not discuss the issue on the talk page first, before making the change which may be seen as drastic. MaynardClark (talk) 15:02, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you a lot for reviewing articles I have edited. :-) --Lagoset (talk) 05:46, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

You appear disinclined to fix your error, by restoring the talk page comment that you deleted. Is that correct?Anythingyouwant (talk) 04:07, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
What are you discussing? MaynardClark (talk) 04:40, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
In this edit of yours, you apparently removed a talk page comment written by another editor. If this error was inadvertent, would you please fix it? If you don't know how to fix it, then I would be glad to fix it for you. Thanks.Anythingyouwant (talk) 04:50, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for showing me where. MaynardClark (talk) 04:56, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Edenic diet[edit]

Thanks for adding the information about Graham, useful and well-referenced. However, the other material used sources which didn't mentioned this diet - sources need to discuss the subject of the article, which isn't vegetarianism and the Bible but a specific named diet. They also failed WP:RS, particularly the beyonddeception site (I think that was its name). Doug Weller (talk) 12:09, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

David Hunter[edit]

Thank you for your updates to the Harvard Chan/David Hunter page!

Would you be willing to add a photo[1] of David Hunter to his page?

Also, can I request a small clarification? David Hunter will retain his title of "Dean for Academic Affairs" even while he is still Acting Dean[2].

Copy and pasting[edit]

We run "copy and paste" detection software on new edits. One of your edits appear to be infringing on someone else's copyright. See also Wikipedia:Copy-paste. We at Wikipedia usually require paraphrasing. If you own the copyright to this material please follow the directions at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials to grant license. Frances Kamm has entire sentences copypasted in. Aside from just the obvious copyright concerns, this also leads to the use of style and content inconsistent with Wikipedia's norms. LeadSongDog come howl! 18:25, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

These are essentially (a) titles of the two Harvard Faculty and (b) their important books (bibliogrpahy is proper format). How is that a copyright violation? You did not show that 'entire sentences' were pasted into the article. The software says that phrases (academic titles, recent important books).
The second of your comments was that "this also leads to the use of style and content inconsistent with Wikipedia's norms." Could you be more specific about how either of these articles is inconsistent with Wikipedia's norms." It's content which does indeed appear in both a citation and the article itself. Surely the article IS better because of the additional and more current content. MaynardClark (talk) 19:38, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Rynn Berry[edit]

Please be a bit more cautious with this article, your conflict of interest is showing in your edits.

This article is meant to be a biography and should be dealing primarily with Berry. Material that is not included in independent reliable sources is wholly inappropriate. What you may know or have heard about him is both unsourced and, so far as an encyclopedic article is concerned, trivial.

Yes, promotional material about his books quotes various people. This material is clearly biased as it was selected by the publisher to promote the book. That the person quoted has other credits is completely off-topic and intended to build up the subject of the article by building up those quoted as saying nice things about the book they wrote.

Yes, vegetarian/vegan sources have lots of nice things to say about vegetarianism/veganism, vegetarians/vegans and the books they write. This article is currently littered with such material in need of extensive culling. Synthesis compounds the problem. - SummerPhDv2.0 16:36, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Regarding an edit a month ago you reverted as "possible vandalism"[edit]

Apparently you did not check carefully enough before this WikiProject removal. The scope of WP:BACON includes "All articles relating to Bacon, and technique and history of Bacon, broadly defined", including "Popular culture". The device codename of the OnePlus One is "Bacon". Therefore, this article is in the scope of the Bacon WikiProject. Please do not quickly mark edits as vandalism, as this can be a major turn-off for new users. sst✈discuss 10:30, 11 November 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.

Your note[edit]

Good day,

Thank you for your note. I'd like to point out that the article was deleted for being entirely copy / pasted without permission, not on notability grounds, and assuming anyone is willing to write an original and properly sourced article about Mr Müller, there are no procedural hurdles against it.

Kind regards, MLauba (Talk) 21:38, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

I would be willing to develop such an article. MaynardClark (talk) 23:12, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
I've created a new stub based on the non-creative content of the previous article here: Draft:Gottfried Müller. MLauba (Talk) 14:02, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I didn't know that we could create a public 'draft' article. Nice. MaynardClark (talk) 15:39, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, the good thing is that you have a lot less pressure to get it to clear WP:V and WP:RS before a new page patroller starts tagging it :) WP:DRAFTS has the details, in case you're interested. Happy editing. MLauba (Talk) 17:56, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
