January 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Anne Ewing may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • Jolla, California, designing and conducting research to understand salt-tolerance in plants.<ref>[Cliff Smith, "New Salt-Tolerant hybrids Could Avert World Famine", The San Diego Union, 12 January

February 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed that your user page may not be appropriate to be indexed by external search engines as presently written. Typically, this could be because it appears promotional, or contains material in development or archived that doesn't yet meet policies and guidelines. I have tagged this page as __NOINDEX__, which allows editing but minimizes the page's inclusion in search engine results.

If you believe that your userpage does not violate our guidelines, please leave a note here and we can discuss it. As an alternative, you may add {{db-userreq}} to the top of the page in question and an administrator will delete it, you can change the page so that it more clearly meets Wikipedia guidelines, or you can edit it as normal and ignore the tag completely (it will not affect editing).

However, please do not remove the tag without discussion. Thank you. Cindy(talk) 09:48, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

I do not understand what the problem is. All I want to do is make sure that the important struggle to remove sexist and racist language and stereotypes made by feminists in the 1970s does not pass out of recorded history. This is incredible work that they did and it is almost not mentioned anywhere in print or on-line reference sources. I spent the last four months researching it and identifying as much solid credible information as I could. I even drove 100 miles from my home to spend a day in a University archive doing research. I am utterly lost in the technicality of the technology of Wikipedia. I'm not sure what a User Page is -- all I want is my informative and thoroughly researched information/page to be posted on Wikipedia so that others who know facts about this struggle and can document the activities of feminists in other parts of the country can add what they know to the page and increase everyone's knowledge about what happened. What is the problem? I added the context. I've written facts and not promotion or opinion. I've provided lots of citations to back up what I've stated. What more could Wikipedia want? (I removed the tag _NOINDEX_ because I did not put it there and did not understand what it was.) I believe that my content is solid, so the problem must be with technicalities. I am not tech savvy. I do not understand the instructions or help features or how to navigate very well at all. Please, please, please have a heart and help me out here.

I do not understand how to get my article out from User Page status and onto the main Wikipedia area. What needs to happen? SDFeminist2.0 (talk) 19:01, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Timeline of textbook change from California POV.pdf[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Timeline of textbook change from California POV.pdf requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F10 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a file that is not an image, sound file or video clip (e.g. a Word document or PDF file) that has no encyclopedic use.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. – Train2104 (t • c) 22:42, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Conflict of interest editing[edit]

Information icon Hello, SDFeminist2.0. We welcome your contributions, but if you have an external relationship with the people, places, or things you have written about in the article Anne Ewing, you may have a conflict of interest (COI). Editors with a COI may be unduly influenced by their connection to the topic, and it is important when editing Wikipedia articles that such connections be completely transparent. See the conflict of interest guideline and FAQ for organizations for more information. In particular, we ask that you please:

  • avoid editing or creating articles related to you and your family, friends, school, company, club, or organization, as well as any competing companies' projects or products;
  • instead, you are encouraged to propose changes on the Talk pages of affected article(s) (see the {{request edit}} template);
  • when discussing affected articles, disclose your COI (see WP:DISCLOSE);
  • avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or to the website of your organization in other articles (see WP:SPAM);
  • exercise great caution so that you do not violate Wikipedia's content policies.

In addition, you must disclose your employer, client, and affiliation with respect to any contribution which forms all or part of work for which you receive, or expect to receive, compensation (see WP:PAID).

Please take a few moments to read and review Wikipedia's policies regarding conflicts of interest, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, sourcing and autobiographies. Thank you. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:35, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi SDFeminist2.0. I work on conflict of interest issues in WIkipedia, along with my regular editing. Would you please reply here, just below this, and say if you have any connection with Anne Ewing? Once you reply I can provide you with guidance about this matter, and editing Wikipedia more generally. Best regards Jytdog (talk) 13:43, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
