Elanor Post Hutton[edit]

Hi Miamelba, I was just going through your recent article on Elanor Post Hutton, but I have been wondering as the article starts with "Elanor Post Close" what is the connection there? Could you elaborate where the Hutton/Close connection is, as I also don't see that she married a Hutton.

Anyway, many thanks for the work and contributions to the world of knowledge! Happy wiki-ing and kindest regards, (MrNiceGuy1113 (talk) 07:02, 20 December 2012 (UTC))

Hello! The surnames seem almost arbitrary at different points in her life, but that was taken from the article about her mother, Marjorie Merriweather Post and seems to have been her name at birth.

Cheers, Mia --Miamelba (talk) 10:24, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Your submission at Articles for creation: Sands Directory (March 4)[edit]

AFC-Logo Decline.svg
Your recent article submission to Articles for Creation has been reviewed! Unfortunately, it has not been accepted at this time. The reason left by Mr. Guye was: Please check the submission for any additional comments left by the reviewer. You are encouraged to edit the submission to address the issues raised and resubmit when they have been resolved. Mr. Guye (talk) 03:44, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Most of the sources I used are library web pages, and one is a published dictionary. The Sands Directories themselves are referenced in a number of Wikipedia articles [1] so this article was just designed to provide further context for those references. --Miamelba (talk) 11:54, 4 March 2015 (UTC)


Teahouse logo
Hello! Miamelba, I noticed your article was declined at Articles for Creation, and that can be disappointing.

See you there! Mr. Guye (talk) 03:44, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

no need to use Articles for Creation[edit]

Hi, Miamelba! I didn't see the twitter conversation until just now, but I just thought I'd let you know that you don't have to use Article for Creation to create new articles. New users are forced to use it (because new users are often rather naughty). But once you have a certain amount of Wikipedia experience (and you are well passed that threshold), you can create articles directly. This doesn't remove the obligation for sourcing etc, but does eliminate an unnecessary layer of process. Find an article that mentions your new topic, create a wikilink [[the new topic]] in that article -- it will be a redlink intially. Then click on the redlink and start creating your article. If I can be of any help, let me know. Kerry (talk) 07:01, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Of course, you may still want to develop the draft article in your user space and then copy it over into your new article when it's sufficiently developed. Kerry (talk) 07:04, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Kerry! For some reason I decided to follow the 'wizard'-type thing, but I've definitely learnt my lesson! --Miamelba (talk) 11:11, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Contacting Editors from the Ada Lovelace Editathons[edit]

Hi Miamelba,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you via your talk page. I’m a new Editor to Wikipedia, part of a small research team based at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I’m getting in touch as we’re trying to contact all the Editors who were involved in the Ada Lovelace Editathons in Oxford or London. If you have been, or still are, involved in editing, whatever the scale of your involvement, we would be very grateful for the opportunity to talk to you about your experiences. In the first instance, we’ve set up a short (10 minute) survey, which you can access via my User Talk Pages. If you are interested in helping with our research project, please can you drop me a line?

Thanks, RuthPage (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 08:25, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
