Invitation to wikiFeed[edit]

Hi Peter2212,

I'm part of a team that is researching ways to help Wikipedia editors find interesting content to contribute to Wikipedia. More specifically, we are investigating whether content from news sources can be used to enhance Wikipedia editing. We have created a tool, called wikiFeed, that allows you to specify Twitter and/or RSS feeds from news sources that are interesting to you. wikiFeed then helps you make connections between those feeds and Wikipedia articles. We believe that using this tool may be a lot of fun, and may help you come up with some ideas on how to contribute to Wikipedia in ways that interest you. Please participate! To do so, complete this survey and follow this link to our website. Once you're there, click the "create an account" link to get started.

For more information about wikiFeed, visit our project page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask via my talk page, or by email at wikifeedcc@gmail.com. We appreciate your time and hope you enjoy playing with wikiFeed!

Thank you! Jeremey Bentham (talk) 19:39, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Merge proposal: 1st New York Mounted Rifles / 7th New York Cavalry[edit]

Hey. I´ve seen that you created and worked on articles about the 7th Regiment New York Volunteer Cavalry / 1st Regiment New York Mounted Rifles.

Request reason:

I have reviewed the items listed and understand the distinction between content and information from the website. I rewrote the Virginia entry to not use the sentences from the website, only the information. The image did not come from the website, but was already on Wikimedia. I will be happy to fix the other edits you mention. Thank you.Peter2212 (talk) 9:48 pm, 1 January 2014, Wednesday (21 days ago) (UTC+0)

This seems acceptable - I apologise for loosing track of this. Two other administrators brought this to my attention last night suggesting I unblock and I concur. Dougweller (talk) 05:42, 23 January 2014 (UTC)


Peter2212's text: The trail in Virginia was referred to as The Warriors Path, the Great Indian Road by Treaty of Lancaster, the Great Wagon Road, and the Valley Pike|Valley Turnpike. It now follows U.S. Route 11 through the Shenandoah Valley but was referred to by the Iroquois as Jonontore. Later, travelers included traders, hunters and pioneers. Other Native Americans including the Shawnee, Lenape|Delaware, and Cherokee hunted here but were forced out by European settlement.

Text from the source:[1] "The road had several names in its history: The Warriors Path, the Great Indian Road by Treaty of Lancaster, the Great Wagon Road, and the Valley Turnpike. Today it is scenic U.S. Route 11 that travels through the Shenandoah Valley and into the mountains of western Virginia; but the Iroquois called it Jonontore and native people used it to travel through what is now Pennsylvania and Virginia to North Carolina and Kentucky."

This is not "in your own words". See WP:Close paraphrasing: "Close paraphrasing is the superficial modification of material from another source. Editors should generally summarize source material in their own words, adding inline citations as required by the sourcing policy." Dougweller (talk) 21:57, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I have reviewed the close paraphrasing reference. What do you think of this: The trail in Virginia runs through the Shenandoah Valley, along U.S. Route 11, sometimes called the Valley Turnpike. The Iroquois name for the trail was Jonontore. Native Americans including the Shawnee, Lenape|Delaware, and Cherokee hunted here but were forced out by European settlement. Their use of the Great Indian Road was governed by the Treaty of Lancaster.

If I cannot originally state the information to your satisfaction, please revert the Virginia entry to its one-line entry from before my first edit. That line had been pending requested expansion since 2008 but if I'm not able to meet copyright guidelines I would rather have it returned to that condition than have no Virginia entry at all. Thanks.

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.

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Battle of Dranesville into Colvin Run Mill. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 22:20, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
