Henny Youngman

Hi, I'm new here and this seems to be the only place I can find to reply.

Re Henny Youngman: The quote I added was often used at roasts of this sort. The specific example comes from a 1970 "Kraft Music Hall" roast of Don Rickles, one of several such specials they aired in that era. Here is the relevant clip; it is Carson's first joke:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTk1yAg-Jus

I hope this satisfies you as to its veracity. I included it as a way to show how Youngman was beloved by his fellow comics, who enjoyed zinging him as much as they loved getting zinged by him.

Best always, Mike Schlesinger aka cadavra8 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cadavra8 (talkcontribs) 17:22, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome!

I'm still unclear on this. If I quote from a TV program, how is a clip from that program invalid? What further proof can I offer that the quote is genuine? Also, I don't believe it is slanted in either direction; as I said, it's a tribute to Youngman by someone who deeply admired him, so if anything, it's pro-Youngman, and thus is hardly blog or social media material. I don't wanna make a big deal over this, but I do feel it is a valued addition to his page and think it should remain.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mysore Ring Road, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Toll (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Changes to SuggestBot's suggestions

We have changed the number of suggested articles and which categories they are selected from. The number of stubs has been greatly reduced, the number of articles needing sources doubled, and two new categories added (orphans and unencyclopaedic articles). We have also modified the layout of the suggestions and added sortable columns with various types of information about each article. The first two columns are:

Views/Day 
Daily average number of views an article's had over the past 14 days.
Quality 
Predicted article quality on a 1- to 3-star scale. Placing your cursor over the stars should give you a pop-up describing the article's quality (Low/Medium/High), current assessment class, and predicted assessment class.

The method we use to predict article quality also allows us to assess whether an article might need specific types of work in order to improve its quality. The work needed might not correspond to cleanup tags added to the article, since our method is not based on those. We have added five columns reflecting this work assessment, where a red X indicates improvement is needed. Placing your cursor over an X should give you a pop-up with a short description of the work needed. The five columns seek to answer the following five questions:

Content 
Is more content needed?
Headings 
Does this article have an appropriate section structure?
Images 
Is the number of illustrative images about right?
Links 
Does this article link to enough other Wikipedia articles?
Sources 
For its length, is there an appropriate number of citations to sources in this article?

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly, your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 23:33, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Bispecific antibodies

Hi, I've been trying to update the article on bispecific antibodies but you reverted it back without explaning why. Can you help me understand? I'm sort of new to wikipedia edits and I'm just trying to contribute with what I know. thanks. --Jmmo20 (talk) 13:33, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

DJ pooh edits

Hey!

I was the one who made the changes to DJ Pooh's page; the biography comes straight from him via email. I don't know how to format to Wikipedia standards, but was hoping his bio would suffice. Please let me know if I am able to revert back to the new one. This is quite important, due to a major project he has coming out in a couple of weeks!

Thank you,

DJ Pooh Reply

Hi Rsrikanth05,

The source is the artist himself! For the sake of privacy, I cannot disclose any proof but in good faith, I'm not posting anything that's not true or unverifiable!

There are some things on his wikipedia right now that are not accurate and my edit was the most up-to-date.

What can I do to make the other update work?

Thank you!

Social business

Please provide reasons for reverting all my changes to the "Social Business" page. I am an expert in the field of Social Business, and I work in the sector. Please provide suggestions or changes/references you deem necessary. If I don't hear from you, I will re-insert my edits. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.234.118.62 (talk) 12:54, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, your edits weren't sourced. Please read Wikipedia:Reliable Sources and ascertain what kind of sources are needed. Also, you may be an expert, but we don't put up Original Research on Wiki, please read these links. Thank you. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 13:08, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I will cite the sources. Most of the text was taken or derived from Yunus' quotes, easily researchable for. Sources I will give will provide evidence for text you may have interpreted as Original Research. Differences between Social Business and charity can be drawn upon respective definitions and common practices, and are within the realm of contribution I can give as an editor expert in the field. -- 2.234.118.62

Who is Yunus? I hope you have gone thru the links I gave you completely, even if something is sourced, it needs to be a good reliable source. Also, please ensure that the prose used is suitable for an encyclopedia, otherwise someone else may have an issue with it. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 16:32, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

I have read your links. "Who is Yunus?" ??? If you ask who is Yunus, 1) you know nothing about Social Business - Yunus is the Peace Nobel Prize Laureate who invented the concept of Social Business, therefore THE MOST RELIABLE SOURCE on the subject, and 2) most importantly you did not even read the wikipedia article you changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.234.118.62 (talk) 20:57, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't know anything about Social Business. I never said I did. I don't need to know about a topic to undo an edit that doesn't conform to Wikipedia policies. I don't need to read the article I reverted. I reverted it because it was unsourced. You don't need to be an expert to edit an article, being an expert gives you no special right over another editor. From WP:EXPERT#General, No editor is exempt from fundamental Wikipedia policies concerning acceptability of contributions; in particular, the policies of no original research and verifiability along with guidelines such as reliable sources still apply. Although other encyclopedias might have articles based on personal "expert opinion" or unpublished conjecture, WP requires all text to be verifiable to published sources. and Experts, of course, can be wrong; and different experts can reasonably disagree on the same topic.. Have a nice day. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 05:21, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
I suggest you two take this discussion to the Talk page of the article, where it is likely to get attention and participation from those who may be interested in editing this article. Having said that, I agree that one need not be a subject matter expert to edit any article on Wikipedia (WP:Expert) to ask for general and fundamental policies, such as the use of reliable sources, and adequate, proportional, and unbiased citations to be followed. -- Rohini (talk) 06:40, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

I don't know how to move the "Talk" discussion to the article page. But I don't have much more to add anyway. I know that you don't need to be an expert to undo edits not conforming to Wikipedia policies. I know that being an expert does not exempt me from having to abide to Wikipedia rules. But yes, you should actually READ at least a bit of the article you want to edit, because it gives you a little CONTEXT before you do the editing. Otherwise, this is what happens: you question the reliability of the sources I want to cite, without even knowing if they are reliable or not. You should at least do a 30-second research about the sources before questioning their reliability in the Talk discussion, instead of asking "Who is Yunus", which is the name that appears in the very first sentence of the article (!) and throughout the article. That said, I think I have amply demonstrated that - if I cite the sources, mostly from Yunus' quotes and writings, a very reliable source - I have the right to re-insert the edits as they were. I will do so as soon as I have time, and this time I will cite the sources more specifically (I had originally cited them to some extent). If I cite sources other than Yunus, please do research on them before considering them unreliable by default. Please do not change it back, unless you have different and valid reasons to do so, and please specify the reasons. Thanks. Peace. 2.234.118.62 (talk) 17:40, 18 August 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.234.118.62 (talk) 17:27, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
