Help desk[edit]

Hi, I hope it is not inappropriate to ask this on your Talk page, but is the Help desk only for admins or can any editor comment on a help question? I occasionally see topics that I can help with, but I have been unable to find a link to sign up as a help desk editor - thanks for your help - Epinoia (talk) 04:32, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

When adding links to material on external sites, as you did to Wikipedia:Reference desk/Mathematics, please ensure that the external site is not violating the creator's copyright. Linking to websites that display copyrighted works is acceptable as long as the website's operator has created or licensed the work. Knowingly directing others to a site that violates copyright may be considered contributory infringement. This is particularly relevant when linking to sites such as YouTube or Sci-Hub, where due care should be taken to avoid linking to material that violates its creator's copyright. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If you believe the linked site is not violating copyright with respect to the material, then you should do one of the following:

  • If the linked site is the copyright holder, leave a message explaining the details on the article Talk page;
  • If a note on the linked site credibly claims permission to host the material, or a note on the copyright holder's site grants such permission, leave a note on the article Talk page with a link to where we can find that note;
  • If you are the copyright holder or the external site administrator, adjust the linked site to indicate permission as above and leave a note on the article Talk page;

If the material is available on a different site that satisfies one of the above conditions, link to that site instead. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 23:11, 14 February 2019 (UTC)

List of association football players considered the greatest of all time[edit]

Yes it is related. I intentionally started discussion about this article in varius places to avoid edit wars and to get view for more other users. I even reported this article for deletion. I highly doubt this article has encyclopedic valuabe at the moment and is possible to correction but I have started littly correction in my sandbox. I would considerr change title from "List of association football players considered greatest of all time" on "Association football players considered greatest of all time" and move it to draft/public-sandbox pages etc. Anyway I have question to you? I do not have techical ability to writing on English Wikipedia. Could you help me with diagram which I put in my sandbox? At the moment it is copy from this one page but I want to use it in my sandbox (Article is very poor and hard to correct due to WP:OR but I belive it can reeach to at least form like that). Cheers. Dawid2009 (talk) 21:18, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Ok, Understand and thanks for reply. I am speciffically intersted in technical correction of this diagram (to reach statistics forall opinion though history as fact recentism is at this article big problem):

Pedigree Petfoods[edit]

I would recommend that you go ahead and rely on FundingUniverse.com as a source, and provide a link to it. Kudos to you for locating it.

As you note, there's very little online, and the company profile is extremely detailed. I have no evidence of any doubts about the reliability and accuracy of Funding Universe. I would assume that most of the primary source for most of their corporate histories is the literature displayed by the companies themselves. There had been inaccurate information on Wikipedia in the past that KalKan had never made dog food, and it was repeated on other sites that happened to mention dog food. There are ample magazine advertisements that can be found by Google Books that show the company's assertions. Mandsford 01:19, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Mandsford there is a list of sources at the end of the FundingUniverse.com history. It was once recommended that I find the original sources but that's so much trouble. If I follow your advice, the concern is that I'm relying too much on one source. I'm not comfortable creating the article, but I can find a way to improve the existing articles. Also, the history seems to end at 1997 and so do the sources.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 15:15, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Vchimpanzee/Kal Kan Foods[edit]

  • As long as you're not doing an obvious word-for-word copy, you're staying in the acceptable range. The best thing to do in paraphrasing is to substitute synonyms for some of the words. My suggestion would be that you throw some paragraph breaks in your text-- first where it says that "Still Kal Kan lost half its market share" and then again where it says "As of 1994..." Mandsford 19:25, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
I knew it needed paragraph breaks. I keep thinking more should be added, and when it is, paragraphs will seem more natural. I added them where they looked appropriate anyway. Anyway, when I can find the proof I need, most of that will end up in Pedigree Petfoods.— Vchimpanzee • talk • contributions • 19:36, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
