Steaming process in Lancashire cotton mills[edit]

Thank you for your disambiguaton edit on Steaming process in Lancashire cotton mills. May I ask what grounds you have for supposing that the Sir Henry Roscoe referred to was Sir Henry Enfield Roscoe? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:48, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

He was active in Lancashire at the time. The only other Henry Roscoe in the disambiguation died in 1836, which is a bit too far gone even for a committee. Sophie means wisdom (talk) 14:58, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Referencing in Relicanthus daphneae[edit]

Hi Sophie,

your referencing in the article was incorrectly done in that :-

  • Two of the articles were actually journal articles & needed Cite Journal & not Cite Web.
  • The AMNH link had missing url.
  • The first large cite web (changed by me to cite journal) had both the cite template & external text within the <ref></ref> brackets.
  • This reference was again hardwired into the references section, which I have deleted.

I have rectified the same, you may compare revisions in history to see the changes that I have made. BTW I changed the columnar form of cite web to a continuous written out form but both are acceptable.

Please be more careful in your next attempt at referencing using cite templates. Remember we are all wordsmiths! Happy editting!

AshLin (talk) 15:56, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Well it was my first attempt at using Cite Web. I thought Cite Journal was for paper journals. Sophie means wisdom (talk) 16:05, 12 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi Sophie, please review my recent edits. I want to stay consistent with yours. Derntno (talk) 16:35, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Sophie. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 18:04, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Damn and blast, Exeter Pride was last week but I couldn't afford to go :( Sophie means wisdom (talk) 18:12, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Eurasian crag martin[edit]

Hi, I'm concerned about this edit. This is a featured article, the text of which was extensively commented on at FAC. None of the reviewers commented on the inclusion of the text you deleted since in all the bird featured articles so far it's been the practice to set the species within the wider context of its genus, and beyond if appropriate, in the taxonomy section.

While your edit is clearly good faith, it's a major changes to this FA, and in effect challenges the structure of several dozen species' FAs. I think this change should have been discussed before implementation.

I would suggest that since the edit has been challenged you revert yourself and propose the change on the article talk page, at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject_Birds, and, if you think it appropriate, at Wikipedia talk:Featured article candidates

Thanks, Jimfbleak - talk to me? 14:52, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

But it's about the genus rather than the species so it belongs in the genus article. Are you defending having repeated text across eight or nine thousand articles? Sophie means wisdom (talk) 16:55, 15 November 2015 (UTC)
