Want to clean up and edit the Robert Bateman section
- I welcome active participation in the article. you are the most qualified person to write the article. If you have a problem using your real name, please create another account, no one will be the wiser, and I believe this is okay to do. Travb (talk) 11:25, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
TravB: Oops, I'm not logged in, but that's sort of moot on "my" own page. Bottom line up front: I'd never edit anonymously. It just wouldn't be right. I'm too well known outside of wikipedia to feel that it would be right to put forward my opinions about anything "anonymously", not the least because somebody might someday call me on it as being intellectually duplicitous.
Please take a more active role in the article
As per wikipedia policy: Wikipedia:Autobiography

This page will answer all of the questions you may have.
Your contribution to the article can only be seen if you click the edit button. And erase the <!-- --> I was checking the book on Google.com/print and I could not find the referenced event you mentioned.
I had a feeling that I'd find a "... has edited Wikipedia as (name)" on your article talk page :)
Your User_talk page formatting is a bit broken, with a number of comments being effectively invisible, BTW.
Funny exchange shown on Wired.com. It's always good to see people, especially subject-matter experts, taking a proactive role in the media.

- P.S. I've fiddled with your talk page formatting a little to fix the invisible-comment breakage introduced by a user's previous post. No text has been altered or deleted.

I decided that it would be inappropriate to delete the article speedily, as notability was asserted, but I've listed it for deletion on your behalf at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Robert Bateman (historian). Regards, BencherliteTalk 19:46, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
