Oregon assessment matrix[edit]

Does anyone here know how the Oregon articles by quality and importance matrix works? I couldn’t find anyone from Wiki-Oregon team who knows how it works. All of the articles shown as needing assessments were rated at least a month ago; and since then, nothing has been added or dropped from the matrix. Bottomline … it looks like the matrix is dead in the water. Sorry, if this isn’t the right place to inquire.--Orygun (talk) 01:14, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

Gatoclass (talk) 00:47, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Please make sure easy to spot geological-era date errors are fixed next time before you submit an article to DYK. This source on page 5 shows that the John Day Formation was formed in the late Oligocene or early Miocene epoch, that time frame is much older than six million years it is actually between 27.82 Ma and 20.44 Ma. This fact is easily retrievable from the charts on Oligocene and Miocene. Unfortunately this error was not fixed before the article made it to the main page. So the few thousand people who read this yesterday got bad information, and at least one of our readers is not very happy. I know it wasn't your intent, but we do like to make sure our Main Page's content is as reliable as it can be. Coffee // have a ☕️ // beans // 14:49, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Coffee: You are right...my oversight! I'm usually pretty careful about my facts. I think 6 Ma number came from early off-line draft that used source that said Cline Butte rhyolite came from Deschutes Formation. When I found more comprehensive source I corrected text to read John Day Formation, but forgot to change dates. My mistake! Thanks for correcting article text! I’ve corrected infobox to match text.--Orygun (talk) 20:23, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Cass A. Cline edit[edit]

  • Flixtey, looks like you may be new Wikipedia editor. You just added "Needs Citation" notes to first paragraph of Cass A. Cline article. FYI, first paragraph in substantial articles like this one are normally an introduction using facts that are cited later in the article. In this case, all three facts are appropriately cited farther down in article so Needs Citation note is not appropriate. Request you reconsider your edit. Thanks--Orygun (talk)
  • Orygun thanks for your comments, I think it's crucial that claims made on a Wikipedia article irrespective of where they are placed, are adequately cited to create relevance to the reader. I think some of these citations will only help a reader who may not have the opportunity to read the full article to at least have the chance to grasp some reliable sources for such important claims/facts (eg:Today, a waterfall on the Deschutes River and a nearby mountain group bear his name as well as a state park west of Redmond, Oregon). Rules on referencing lead sections are not cast in stone however in some cases like this it may be relevant to the reader --Flixtey (talk) 01:24, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
  • While I disagree that redundant citations are useful in this case, I have added duplicate citations to the introduction paragraph.--Orygun (talk) 07:35, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Here's feedback from DYK nomination reviewer that agrees that references are not needed in lead paragraph as long as the facts are referenced in the body of the article:

Cass A. Cline

Source: In the book Images of America: Redmond on p. 28, it says: "Cline Falls, Cline Buttes , and the now-extinct community [of Cline Falls] were named for pioneer dentist Dr. Cass A. Cline."

Cline Buttes GAN[edit]

Hi, Orygun! I am working on promoting every Cascade Volcano to good article status as part of the Cascades Volcanoes good topic project. I saw that you've already written a very solid article at Cline Buttes, and I wanted to check in to see if you would be willing to submit it for good article review at GAN. I would be more than happy to help with the process if so. ceranthor 19:45, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Any thoughts? ceranthor 12:51, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Ceranthor: Fact is, I’ve never nominated an article for GA status so I’m really not familiar with that process. My goal has always to write good solid B-Class article articles and let them go. However, I would be glad to help improve the Cline Buttes article as long as it doesn’t take too much time. That concern stems from the fact that I have a number article in the works and I want to finish a new article each month.--Orygun (talk) 07:00, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
@Orygun: I do think the geography and geology sections should be split into two and expanded, but otherwise it's in very good shape. I'd be happy to take care of that and help you with the nomination process if you want. Let me know! ceranthor 18:20, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Ok, I’ll give it a try. How do I nominate the article for review.--Orygun (talk) 23:51, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
If you don't mind, I'd prefer to flesh out the geography/geology section a bit first. I think I can do that today - would that be okay? ceranthor 16:30, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Fine with me.--Orygun (talk) 18:44, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Great! I've added a bit now. I'm mostly happy. Just need to figure out your reference style so I can adjust my added sources to that, and then I wanted to ask about the John Day Formation bit you've already included there. This thesis paper seems to suggest that Cline Buttes may not be part of the John Day Formation after all - thoughts? ceranthor 20:36, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I couldn't access details of source you cited above, only the abstract; however, my source/rationale for identifying Cline Buttes as being created as part of the John Day Formation is addressed on Talk:Cline Buttes page.--Orygun (talk)
Alright! If you want to go ahead and nominate it for good article review, the link is here: Wikipedia:Good_article_nominations/Instructions#Step_2:_Nominating_the_article ceranthor 00:32, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
