Disambiguation link notification for June 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Elmer McCollum, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Phosphorous (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.

Elmer McCollum[edit]

Greetings, Susan Lesch. You may have noticed that I just promoted Elmer McCollum to the DYK prep area. While I judged it good enough to pass DYK, I would strongly recommend that you either thoroughly copy-edit it yourself, or submit it at WP:GOCE. While the prose is fine, the section divisions feel like arbitrary breaks; the prose often picks up from the previous paragraph with no explanation of the new topic. Otherwise, well done with the article. Regards, Vanamonde93 (talk) 12:29, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Elmer McCollum[edit]

WikiLink to Orpheus and Faid[edit]

Hi SusanLesch, I added Salman Rushdie's comment on Bob Dylan's Nobel prize to the Dylan article: “From Orpheus to Faiz, song & poetry have been closely linked. Dylan is the brilliant inheritor of the bardic tradition." I linked Faiz and Orpheus since I thought they were not familiar terms in an article on popular music. (Personally, I had not heard of Faiz until this mention.) I was surprised you removed the links, and would like to restore them. Best, Mick gold (talk) 14:19, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

Mick gold, go ahead and restore the links if you wish. WP:LINKSTYLE says to not link inside quotations which is why I removed them. Thank you for your great work on this article, and on maintenance during such a busy time. -SusanLesch (talk) 16:52, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

2017 Women's March[edit]

Hi,

I provided a compromise approach on the talk page discussion about the three times statement.

I think that there are a couple of things that are happening:

  • Confusing 3x statements about the comparison between the 2009 Obama and 2017 Trump inaugurations, like your statement that Washington Post said that the Women's March was 3 x the size of the Trump inauguration. They didn't say that, that I've been able to find anyway, but they did say that Obama's first inauguration was likely about 3 x the size of the Trump inauguration.
  • That the 500,000 is likely a low estimate of the crowd size for the Women's March, based upon the photos (which is original research without sources). But, unfortunately, it seems to be routinely reported that there were about 500,000 people at the march. Many of the articles that explain the difficulty in calculating the attendance figures state why it's difficult to give an accurate estimate.
  • There's a wide disparity between the estimates for the size of the march Trump's inauguration from 200,000 to 600,000 - or up to 1.5 million if you're Trump.

Readers of the compromise paragraph could decide for themselves if the Women's March was 2 1/2 times, 2 times or about the same as the Trump inauguration... and look at the images from the NYT article and decide for themselves.—CaroleHenson(talk) 22:50, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

correction—CaroleHenson(talk) 23:10, 27 January 2017 (UTC)
User:CaroleHenson, again I am sorry for the error! You are right that I misread The Washington Post. Thank you for the correction. I have replied on the article talk page. -SusanLesch (talk) 01:53, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Love Mr. Dylan. What happened to that song in the Google songlist? -SusanLesch (talk) 13:59, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
No clue. A while back I added some of his lyrics to the Iron Range article. Sca (talk) 14:07, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Gad, he can be depressing. I started an article about one of his drummers Howard Wyeth, who plays on this one. He was dead at 51. -SusanLesch (talk) 17:31, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
P.S. To which you contributed some quotation marks, I just noticed. -SusanLesch (talk) 18:32, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I know about Howie Wyeth. Tragic story. I agree that his drumming on Desire was "ethereal," especially on Black Diamond Bay – a spooky song anyhow. Sca (talk) 21:43, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Notability of Dosho Port[edit]

I have created an article about a living Zen master, Dosho Port. It was reviewed and rejected by Seraphim System because the sources were deemed be inadequate. A subsequent review by worldbruce went into more depth and also considered the sources inadequate. (His review has been deleted.)

My problem is that within the world of contemporary American Zen, Dosho Port, is famous and respected. He has studied and practiced Zen for 40 years. He has studied with several of the most prominent Zen masters of the 20th century. He has taught at several Zen centers and is now the head abbot of the Nebraska Zen Center, one of the oldest Zen centers in the U.S. He is published. So within the world of Zen, Dosho Port is notable.

How to demonstrate this? The sources I cited in the article would be considered authoritative within the world of contemporary American Zen. In other contexts they might be considered inadequate, but that would be applying the wrong context.

Do you have any suggestions of how I can move forward?

Thanks, TooTallSid (talk) 17:20, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, TooTallSid. Sorry, not really. I guess you'd need to find him given in a third party reliable source. I just looked and did not find him in Zen Master Who? by James Ishmael Ford. Lots of people have practiced for 40 years and remain outside Wikipedia. It might take years. (For example who ran the Nebraska Zen Center for the last 25 years?) Good luck. -SusanLesch (talk) 18:24, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
Woops, hold on, he is in there. -SusanLesch (talk) 18:45, 3 August 2017 (UTC)
(Incidentally you answered my question: it was Nonin/Norman Chowaney.) You can quote page 135 which lists the dharma heirs of Katagiri. It says "Dosho Port guides the Wild Fox Zen Monastery outside the twin cities[sic]."[1] I doubt there is any question that his heirs are notable. -SusanLesch (talk) 18:56, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Edits on Minneapolis page: what are you talking about?[edit]

You reverted my edits to the Minneapolis page. Why did you do that? Why on Earth would you accuse me of vandalism? If you cannot provide some constructive criticism, please do not revert my edits.

Trump administration[edit]

Lots of open 'white space' around "Notable non-Cabinet positions"

  • Could you possibly tighten that up to look more compact and align the columns in "Notable non-Cabinet positions"? MaynardClark (talk) 14:52, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
