It's a pleasure to be in contact with you! I congratulate you for the valuable contributions that you have made to the Wikipedia Project.
My intention to contribute to the article of Lupe Velez is in good faith. Although i don't have much experience in editing articles, since some years ago i contribute to Wikipedia. You are right. English is not my native language, although i speak the language significantly fluent. I offer an apology for the mistakes that I have been able to write.
I was the one who enriches the article on Lupe Velez few years ago. At that time, the article was very poor. I am happy that someone else is interested in her life and career. She was amazing!.
Your recent version of the article seemed extraordinary. However, I find that you take as the main reference the book of Michelle Vogel. That book is extraordinary, but he's not the only biographer of Lupe Velez. I think you took as the only source of information the books published in the United States, in English. There are other valuable books of Lupe Velez published in Spanish, in Mexico. I took some of those books as my references, and I think have been ignored. I've talked to people like Martin Caballero, Moises Corona and others with information of first level about Lupe. Among my references even place a Youtube interview with the legendary (in Latin America) vaudeville star (or vedette) Maria Conesa, who met Lupe. In the interview, Conesa speaks about her. Sadly that was deleted from the article, and so it seemed a bit unfair.
I hope now that we are in contact, we can exchange opinions and views about Lupe. Your knowledge and extensive experience in Wikipedia, along with my own research, I think it may be something very interesting.
A pleasure to meet you and thanks for your time to contact me!!!.

I love being in touch with you again. Before all I would like to ask you whether you can use as references for the article the internet sites?. In the Web has many pages very well documented on some aspects of the life and career of Lupe. My own sources about Lupe's career in vaudeville, are the same ones that appeared in some articles on the web. Here I leave some links:
I read some books about Lupe, like "Lupe Vélez: La mexicana que escupía fuego", by Gabriel Ramírez, and "Rostros e Imágenes", by Luis Moreno. However, I do not have those books (only fragments), and these books are not on the Internet. In fact, the first, doesn't have an ISBN, and it was a documentary work for the bibliography of the National Film Archives of Mexico (Cineteca Nacional). However, the authors of these books talk about Lupe in the TV show "The Story Behind the Myth", found on Youtube. Can we use that as a reference?
If you agree with that, we could place it on the page. If I had errors or problems with the language, it would be wonderful if you could correct it. I also edited the article on Wikipedia of another great Mexican star in Hollywood: the legendary Dolores del Rio. Believe me, my information is well documented. I can get photos of Lupe in the Mexican vaudeville. But unfortunately the copyright law of Mexico is more stringent than in the United States. That has caused me problems when wanting to upload images.
I send a big greeting and await your response.

You're not the only one who wishes that there was still history on the history channel. I remember a time when I used to watch it religiously and learn things, now I rarely end up watching anything on it :/ TomStar81 (Talk) 15:08, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
- ...also, you've got an awesome user talk page. Not sure how you managed to get the colors to change like that, but I like it a lot! TomStar81 (Talk) 15:09, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
