Congratulations[edit]

First time I've sat down to my computer in eleven days and I am thrilled to see the latest in good articles you have had a strong hand in getting to that level. You are so much more appreciated than you could ever know, Susun. Every award that can be sent your direction is warranted but none can adequately express or accurately describe the depth of your impact on the encyclopedia and the community surrounding it. --ARoseWolf 15:21, 12 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

ARoseWolf, good to see you. It always makes me smile, just to see your name. I honestly never look for awards or expect them. The reward for me in working on the encyclopedia is to learn (it's a very selfish endeavor) and to possibly impart some of the information I have learned to others (maybe a tiny bit self-less, but self-serving still because it makes me happy when others tell me they learned). My fervent hope is that the encyclopedic record some day shows girls that women have indeed always been involved and impacted world events. Your encouragement, along with other editors, keeps me going. SusunW (talk) 16:00, 12 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Copy edit request[edit]

Greetings @SusunW

Lately I ended up in off the routine rescue effort of a stub article called D-Agree. I do not see my general topic article c/e supporting users around since couple of days. Please see if you are around and spare some time for some copy edit help for the article D-Agree.

Thanks and warm regards

I am hip deep in working on a critical article for women in climate, but if I finish that, I will pop by and look. Sorry, but there's a clock ticking on this one and I have to stay focused on it. SusunW (talk) 13:08, 13 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DYK for Ursula Sillge[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 16 July 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Ursula Sillge, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Ursula Sillge's attempt to organize a 1978 national lesbian gathering in East Germany led to the banning of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf's venue for LGBT meetings? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Ursula Sillge. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Ursula Sillge), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

pipe characters[edit]

Hi Susun! I saw this edit and wanted to share that instead of (sonntags|club) you could do (sonnntags|club). I think the former only didn't work because it was inside of the image template, so it thought the | was separating parameters.

Anyway thanks so much for starting that article, and all your hard work on it!! = paul2520 💬 13:45, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Paul2520 Thanks! I was very interested in her story. Imagine, churches being involved in assisting the LGBT community. Certainly not the experiences of most places around the globe. As for the "|", Gerda tried to use it also (not in the image template) and it didn't work. It truncates all the text before the punctuation mark. I just tried to use your solution and it still truncates the text before, so I previewed it, but didn't save it. SusunW (talk) 14:01, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, that's fabulous! I'm glad to see more and more churches near me being LGBTQ+ allied. I wish I had been involved with such a church in my youth.
I found a fix! See here. The Wikipedia article Vertical bar helped me; I have a bit of experience with HTML editing. = paul2520 💬 16:29, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you so much! As is probably obvious by now, wiki-technology is way beyond my skill set :) I appreciate your help. SusunW (talk) 16:34, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
...says the editor with 61k edits! ;-) = paul2520 💬 16:43, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Paul2520, I know my limitations. Research and writing, I know how to do. I use the exact same formatting on every single article I write. Anything outside of those rote things I know how to do leaves me scrambling to find someone who can help me. I absolutely promise you, I am baffled by the majority of wiki-technology. Heck, I cannot even make its search engine work logically for me. If I google something, I inevitably find a wiki-article, but not if I search on wiki. Its technology and me have different intuitions, we don't think the same, and the whole coding thing, don't get me started. Face-wink.svg SusunW (talk) 17:02, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@SusunW: I'm very much a coder & happy to help with these things. Feel free to let me know if I can look over an article. I also love submitting to DYK (working on one now for Ada Buisson).
I hear you with the search not always finding what you need. I often Google with "site:en.wikipedia.org" to ensure I find Wikipedia pages. = paul2520 💬 17:06, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Paul2520 I'll add you to my list of people to ask for help. I will need you, but you might regret having told me your skill. 3:) As for DYK, in my perfect world, I'd write articles and someone else would nominate them (Yoninah used to do that for me and I miss her). I find the process confusing, time consuming, and somewhat combative. But, it takes a village to make WP work and we all do what we do best. SusunW (talk) 17:21, 16 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Emily Rose Bleby[edit]

Hi! I wonder if you or Dr. Blofeld might have access to some additional sources for Emily Rose Bleby who was born in Jamaica and worked in the British West Indies with her missionary father before making South Wales her home? A photo would be lovely but I couldn't find one. No worries if you're busy with other things. -- Rosiestep (talk) 15:07, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rosiestep Let me check and I'll get back to you. SusunW (talk) 15:13, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh lovely, great to see Penarth! We had the biggest port in the world at the time I think with the coal industry and so many emigrated from the West Indies. I'll have a look a bit later, nice one Rosiestep! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:32, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Some stuff: Bleby "arrived with his wife and infant child about the beginning of April, 1832" p 103 "Henry Bleby was the first Chairman of the Demerara section", (p 384) i.e. 1862-1866 in Guiana (p 411) 1868 became district chair in Bahamas for ten years.(p 427) Returned to UK 1878[1] These folks were serious abolitionists.[2][3] She was nominated as a poor law guardian[4]. Found a lovely obit with more info @britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk but I cannot figure out how to clip it, so I saved the PDF and e-mailed it to you Rosiestep. SusunW (talk) 16:07, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for all of this, SusunW! Really helped to flesh out the article. --Rosiestep (talk) 16:44, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No problem Rosiestep. Ask any time and I'll try to help. No luck at all on a photo. SusunW (talk) 17:11, 23 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah the trusty Western Mail. I visited it as a kid and saw the printing press and offices! Couldn't find anything Rosiestep but then I don't have access to the sources Susun has!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:26, 24 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No worries, Dr. B, and thanks for looking! --Rosiestep (talk) 17:37, 24 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Susun! Can you find anything in your newspaper archives on composer Bruce Faulconer? Dallas and Texas papers more of a chance. Anything you can save for me? No worries if too busy.♦ Dr. Blofeld 22:14, 27 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Dr. Blofeld, what time frame? I found this guy, but not sure if he's who you are after. If he's your guy, there's quite a bit more. I can look tomorrow. Just about to head to dinner with my sister. SusunW (talk) 22:33, 27 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's our guy! Nice one. I need some more articles demonstrating coverage in reliable sources. 80s and 90s could use some more but anything you can find would help. How do you apply for access to Wiki library resources nowadays? Metawiki? I want access to the big archive sites like newspapers.com.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:58, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dr. Blofeld For the Wikipedia library, go here and sign up for both newspapers.com and newspaperarchive.com. You will also have access to the "bundled references", like OUP, Ebsco, etc with a library pass. Texas papers can be searched here as well. Stuff for you[5],[6],[7],last paragraph, did he move to Ohio?,[8],[9], [10] and he's on this page but the first page tells you what it's about,[11],[12] Hope that helps. SusunW (talk) 13:53, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks!! It's one of those which has to be gleaned together to produce something acceptable I think as a raw Google search doesn't turn up much in detail. It shouldn't have been redirected as he's clearly notable for more than just that Dragon series. Cheers Susun! :-) !♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:05, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yep, Dr. Blofeld. Kind of like every woman's bio, there just isn't a single source, but I agree he's notable. Just have to find snippets here and there to put a bio together. Glad to help. SusunW (talk) 14:37, 28 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Peace, Strength and Rainbows[edit]

I tried going as quietly as I could but I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I didn't write you personally, here, not some email, because here is where you have had such an impact on my life. I could have written this on my talk page but I decided to write it here. I will write others as well. But I wanted this to focus on you. Susun, I can not express the feelings I experienced last year when I went through my illness. I wanted, so bad, to be with my family, my daughter particularly. All I have ever wanted to be was a mother of a daughter that I could pour myself into hoping to hear her Song blossom and grow. But I can't have that experience naturally. So when my daughter came into my life I cherished the opportunity. And then Covid hit and then I got diagnosed with Leukemia and that was taken away from me for that time I was so defeated.

I went through hell in my young life, things that need not be repeated. I was introduced to the Rainbow by my grandmother. It changed my course in life and gave me a steady foundation along with the love of music and learning she stirred in me that I only connected with her in the last several years. No one knows how close I was to giving up last year. I didn't put that on all of you. I carried that burden alone. And it hurts me to think there were times I literally wanted to leave my daughter, (I said I wasn't going to cry) without me. But when I was at my weakest and those thoughts came to my mind you renewed the stirring in me for life. You put my eyes back on the path to recovery and gave me hope. You were my family through that. You inspired me to get better.

Working on this project in the capacity that I have is so small compared to the vast works you have done. I marvel at the masterpieces you create with your words. But more than that I see the strings that bind us together and the song that's played on those strings. You have been my peace, my strength, my rainbow. It's been an honor and know that you can email me anytime and I will respond as soon as I can. My beautiful friend, always stop and look for the small details in Life, a plant growing up through the crack in a sidewalk, a bee buzzing from flower to flower, a butterfly floating on a breeze, every person you walk by showing off their colors, from the sea crashing against the shore to the call of the caribou on the side of a mountain slope to the sounds of a bustling city on the move, in the details of Life is where you will hear my Song. 🌈🌹 --ARoseWolf 14:14, 25 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am smiling through my tears. We are the strength for each other, always. There is always someone who has walked our path and can help us back to light and the sparkling rainbows around us. If we listen to their songs and dance to their rhythms until we have strength again to make our own, we will reach the rainbows. I am honored to have been one of those people for you when you needed it. Know that you have been that person for me as well. I carry you with me always.

Atalie, not Iva[edit]

Atalie (Cherokee: ᎠᏔᎵ, romanized: Atali) sounds like an incredible woman from just the limited reading I've done. Her writings are so beautiful and the fact she was a singer, amazing. Coincidentally I found her listed here though they have her as Iva so we might want to change that later. --ARoseWolf 15:43, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I thought you might find her fascinating. Definitely will do a redirect to Iva (mainly because she was enrolled as that), but the majority of the sources are Atalie. [13] Have hardly scratched the surface. Tons of entries in newspapers.com and archive.org. Smithsonian says they have photos, but alas, I have no idea how to see them.

You can see a few just doing a casual google image search but I'll see if I can dig around and find more. It's not surprising there is a lot of information on her. She seemed very popular in affluent circles and had quite a way with words. --ARoseWolf 17:03, 5 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
