Wrong articles[edit]

Would you please look at what article you are linking? I've just had to correct the last three links you added. Alison Murray (scientist) is not the same as Alison Murray. And stop using the summary "Adding link to orphaned article, Wikiproject Orphanage" when your edit has nothing to do with that. Meters (talk) 05:30, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

-- Oops, thanks. What summary do you suggest for adding a link to a biography? Montanasuffragettes (talk) 05:33, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Just say what you were doing. And in these edits you were not adding a link to biography, you were adding a new person to a list. Meters (talk) 05:37, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Don't quite understand your distinction between a "person" and a "biography", will just say "adding article link." Adding links to articles turns out to be very time consuming, which must be why so many of the articles about people have fewer than 3 links to them. Do you know how to make a disambiguation page for all the people named "Allison Murray", perhaps? Montanasuffragettes (talk) 05:46, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Do not do that. I'm not distinguishing between a biography and a person. I am distinguishing between adding a link to an existing entry (what your proposed edit summary suggests) and adding a new entry to a list (what you actually did).
Yes I know how to create a disambiguation page, but I don't think we need one. There are only three Alison Murray pages, and the main page clearly points to the other two. Meters (talk) 06:01, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
Well, I thought I was attempting to be helpful here, since there are so many orphaned articles, but it appears that this is just too complicated for me to get it right. Oh well. Have a good evening! (And if you'd like to work through the rest of the list of Antarctic women, that would be great. I was starting at the bottom and working upward ...) Montanasuffragettes (talk) 06:15, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm not trying to chase you away. I didn't look at many of your edits. The ones I did look at were indeed helpful, just the edit summaries were not correct, and the problem with linking to the incorrect article is a common problem. No big deal.

Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere[edit]

Do you have the URL for the link you added? Also, is there a link to a peer-reviewed paper? If so, please include. I don't think that info will stay as cited. See the wp:template {{cite web}}, {{cite book}}, & {{cite journal}} You can add using wp:RefToolbar/2.0 which is part of the editor. Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 19:28, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

URL is in the citation-- click on the title. This publication is widely read by national policymakers. If the information it contains is wrong, somebody really ought to write a letter to the editor, at the very least. I don't have the knowledge to assess the studies to which it refers, or access to them online. I had the impression that the journalist who wrote this article was attempting to surface a lesser-known issue in current research. If you can get some more informed editors to follow up and take a look at these studies, you'd be doing a service. --Montanasuffragettes (talk) 19:54, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
