Whig Party vandal[edit]

Tom, I've reverted the Whig Party vandal again, and left a fourth-level warning. Since this is apparently a static IP, I'll pursue a long-term block if they do it again. Thanks. - BilCat (talk)

I posted right references[edit]

What do you want from me?come to 30 years war Talk.82.49.34.193 (talk) 18:42, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

My issue is that the text added is too poorly written to communicate useful information to a reader. Others have problems with your interpretation of the sources. First, I want you to stop reverting other editors -- at least four editors disagree with your text. Next I want is for you to discuss on the article's discussion page exactly what you're trying to say and specifically show what language in the sources support your conclusions. Finally, don't add anything back until there is a clear consensus of editors to do this. Tom (North Shoreman) (talk) 18:55, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Hey there! Id like to invite you to the WikiProject Investment

A1 Houston Office Oil Traders on Monday.jpg

I'd like to invite you to join the Investment WikiProject. There are a lot of Investment related articles on Wikipedia that could use a little attention, and I hope this project can help organize an effort to improve them. So please, take a look and if you like what you see, help get this project off the ground and a few Investment pages into the front ranks of Wikipedia articles. Thanks!

Cheers! WikiEditCrunch (talk) 19:02, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Leo Frank abduction[edit]

Hi Tom, I came across this edit request in the talk page for Leo Frank and am wondering if you know where this text (paragraph 2 of Abduction and lynching) was sourced from. I see Dinnerstein mentions 175 miles, and Frey mentions seven cars (rather than eight) went to Milledgeville, but I don't see one source for everything in the related text, nor do I see it in the sources mentioned later in the paragraph.

Photo request[edit]

Since your residence is "on the Ohio side of Lake Erie in the western suburbs of Cleveland", would you be willing to help me with an Ohio-related project? For 3 years, I've been working on getting illustrations of all municipalities and townships statewide, and as you can see from my project-tracking page, User:Nyttend/Ohio, the only counties with unillustrated locations are in the Western Reserve. If you have a camera good enough to take simple pictures (e.g. countryside for a rural township, a residential neighborhood for a community, a city downtown), that's all I'm asking. If you'd like to help but you have questions, please let me know. Nyttend (talk) 23:09, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Andrew Jackson[edit]

we are very close to getting Andrew Jackson promoted to featured article. We have worked together in the past on a couple of presidential articles and I thought you might like to take a look at the FA review and see if you believe it is worthy of supporting for promotion. Thanks. Hoppyh (talk) 12:24, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Italians lynched in New Orleans[edit]

As I recall, you have made contributions on articles on lynching. There is discussion going on at Talk:March 14, 1891, lynchings because some editors want to refer to other events, such as the Chinese massacre of 1871 in LA, to say that the New Orleans event was not "the largest mass lynching in US history." I think this is an inappropriate classification of deaths in race riots as lynchings (because people were hanged) and tried to point out the difference between race riots (which the 1871 LA event was) and lynchings. Perhaps you could add perspective, as well? Parkwells (talk) 21:51, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

UDC Page[edit]

As a historian pursuing a PhD degree, I’m rather concerned by the reliance on secondary sources. I understand that may be acceptable to Eiki but shouldn’t a higher standard be held?

If we are going to call an organization all these terrible things, shouldn’t we be using their words to confirm it? Ed Sebesta for instance is a well know historical hit man, yet we are using his word as a source authority.

As I have been working on my degree I have been distressed by the politicization I have seen in my discipline. Historians don’t want to simply record events anymore. They (we) want to be activists, place modern motivations on long dead people and get our 15 minutes of fame. The sources quoted in this article fit this discription too well. In other words, I see a whole lot of opinion but little to no primary evidence based fact.

To conclude, I really think all the opinion needs to be removed and a simple recording of fact be placed instead.

Thank you. Thalomen1 (talk) 00:18, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a research paper - it's an encyclopedia, a tertiary source. And such a source relies primarily on secondary sources.Volunteer Marek (talk) 00:41, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Thats disapointing[edit]

An encyclopedia is supposed to be a trusted source, based on both primary and secondary dart sources. Forgive me but your explanation doesn’t make sense to me.

If wikipedia not going to be as reliable and fact based as we can make it, why bother? The UDC page is not a reliable source and has much more in common with a trash hit piece. Honestly, it seems to me if that’s the stNdard it’s setting itself up to nothing more than biased, unreliable, opinion based pulp. Or at least the digital version of pulp. Shouldn’t we set a higher standard?

If what your saying is accurate, and secondary sources are all that matter, Wikipedia is about the worst source of information imaginable. Thalomen1 (talk) 01:02, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

I provided you with useful links that you should spend some time with before trying to make further edits. This link (WP:WPNOTRS) is the most relevant to your comments. It clearly states, "Wikipedia articles should be based mainly on reliable secondary sources, i.e., a document or recording that relates or discusses information originally presented elsewhere." It also states, "Primary sources are often difficult to use appropriately. Although they can be both reliable and useful in certain situations, they must be used with caution in order to avoid original research." Tom (North Shoreman) (talk) 01:16, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Tom, Thanks! I did look through them and I just find myself stunned. I appreciate you sending the information, Im just saying I find Wikipedia's definition of "reliable sources" highly questionable and extremely subjective. I don't know many people who consider Ed Sebesta reliable. The man is a hack of the worst sort. Yet he's given authoritative status on several Wikipedia pages. At any rate, Im not going to try to make wiki something it isn't. Im just rather disillusioned with wikipedia. Thanks again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thalomen1 (talkcontribs) 01:29, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

April 2018 Milhist Backlog Drive[edit]

G'day all, please be advised that throughout April 2018 the Military history Wikiproject is running its annual backlog elimination drive. This will focus on several key areas:

  • tagging and assessing articles that fall within the project's scope
  • adding or improving listed resources on Milhist's task force pages
  • updating the open tasks template on Milhist's task force pages
  • creating articles that are listed as "requested" on the project's various lists of missing articles.

As with past Milhist drives, there are points awarded for working on articles in the targeted areas, with barnstars being awarded at the end for different levels of achievement.

The drive is open to all Wikipedians, not just members of the Military history project, although only work on articles that fall (broadly) within the scope of military history will be considered eligible. This year, the Military history project would like to extend a specific welcome to members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women in Red, and we would like to encourage all participants to consider working on helping to improve our coverage of women in the military. This is not the sole focus of the edit-a-thon, though, and there are aspects that hopefully will appeal to pretty much everyone.

The drive starts at 00:01 UTC on 1 April and runs until 23:59 UTC on 30 April 2018. Those interested in participating can sign up here.

Have you reviewed this edit to Secession in the United States?[edit]

I've been keeping an eye on a particular editor, and this recent, large edit of theirs, to an article with which I have little familiarity (but whose talk page you have recently edited) is one that I cannot evaluate. I am also confounded as to the intent of the editor's recent edits, which have been reverted. All I'm asking is that some other eyes look the edit over.
