Disambiguation link notification for January 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Sacred Heart Cathedral (Raleigh, North Carolina), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cardinal Gibbons High School. 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.

Thank you. It appears that nowhere in Wikipedia is Hubert Lafayette Sone mentioned except on his page. Yet there are numerous pages dealing with the central issue, The Rape of Nanjing. How is linking done under these circumstances?LtUSMC (talk) 23:05, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Johnston Building = Midtown Plaza?[edit]

Hello! You had written, "I can find no evidence this building was ever called Midtown Plaza."

I see that you're in North Carolina, and I am a long way away. However, a quick web search yielded these items where the Johnston Building had been referred to as Midtown Plaza:

I know I didn't pull the "Midtown Plaza" name out of thin air, but for the life of me, I cannot re-create how or where I found that piece of information. Oddly, I notice that Google Maps labels the building as "Midtown Plaza". (Go to the map and zoom in on that building.)
I don't want to press the issue because I don't know Charlotte, and you clearly do. I agree that a search for the phrase in the Charlotte newspaper database would be a conclusive way of settling the matter. Canadian2006 (talk) 23:18, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Bloody Sunday[edit]

The dispute is the original events of 1965 and how it was referred to at that time and correct/factual context. Not a later, revisionist approach as a matter of political appeasement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Heyyouoverthere (talkcontribs) 20:46, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

A new reference tool[edit]

Hello Books & Bytes subscribers. There is a new Visual Editor reference feature in development called Citoid. It is designed to "auto-fill" references using a URL or DOI. We would really appreciate you testing whether TWL partners' references work in Citoid. Sharing your results will help the developers fix bugs and improve the system. If you have a few minutes, please visit the testing page for simple instructions on how to try this new tool. Regards, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:48, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Newspapers.com check-in[edit]

Hello Vchimpanzee,

You are receiving this message because you have a one-year subscription to Newspapers.com through the Wikipedia Library. This is a brief update, to remind you about that access:

  • Please make sure that you can still log in to your Newspapers.com account. If you are having trouble let me know.
  • Remember, if you find this source useful for your Wikipedia work, to include citations with links on Wikipedia. Links to partner resources are one of the few ways we can demonstrate usage and demand for accounts to our partners. The greater the linkage, the greater the likelihood a useful partnership will be renewed. Also, keep in mind that part of Newspapers.com is open access via the clipping function. Clippings allow you to identify particular articles, extract them from the original full sheet newspaper, and share them through unique URLs. Wikipedia users who click on a clipping link in your citation list will be able to access that particular article, and the full page of the paper if they come from the clipping, without needing to subscribe to Newspapers.com. For more information about how to use clippings, see http://www.newspapers.com/basics/#h-clips .
  • Do you write unusual articles using this partner's sources? Did access to this source create new opportunities for you in the Wikipedia community? If you have a unique story to share about your contributions, let me know and we can set up an opportunity for you to write a blog post about your work with one of our partner's resources.

Finally, we would greatly appreciate it if you filled out this short survey. Your input will help us to facilitate this particular partnership, and to discover what other partnerships and services the Wikipedia Library can offer.

Thank you,

David Fishelov[edit]

Hi Vchimpanzee, Thanks for your detailed and useful responses. I don't know how to find our conversation about Draft:David_Fishelov.

Re Fishelov's notability: according to the list of criteria specified in "Wikipeida: Notability (academics)" Fishelov definitely meets the first two criteria: 1. Fishelov's work has made significant impact in his scholarly discipline, i.e. literary studies. His book Metaphors of Genre is widely discussed and cited by scholars working in the field: Google-Scholar counts more than 130 citations of this book, much above the average of scholarly books in that field. It is no coincidence that the article on "Genre studies" on Wikipedia devotes a significant part of its section on "Generic Conventions" to present Fishelov's contribution to that field. 2. Fishelov's book Samson's Locks won the first Bahat Prize. The Bahat Prize is a prestigious Israeli national award for a scholarly, non-fiction book and many Israeli scholars in the Humanities and the Social Sciences compete for that prize. Moreover, Fishelov has also made a substantial impact outside academia in his academic capacity, hence he also meets criterion #7: based on his reputation as a literary scholar Fishelov was invited to chair the committee appointed by the Israeli Ministry of Culture and the Jerusalem municipality, to award the prestigious Yehuda Amichai Prize in poetry. Furthermore, the numerous reviews and essays Fishelov published in the literary supplements of three national Israeli newspapers made a significant impact outside academia. Note also the important role he played in introducing to Israeli readers to several classical works of modern English literature (e.g. Robinson Crusoe) by writing comprehensive afterword to their Hebrew translations.

Let me also mention the fact that Fishelov was invited to teach at several distinguished universities, including UC Berkeley, University of Chicago, Columbia University and EHESS in Paris. Perhaps this last fact, in and of itself, does not fall exactly into the list of criteria listed in "Wikipedia: Notability (academics)", but it is definitely another indication of his reputation as a leading scholar in the field of literary studies.

Re Fishelov's books: I elaborated a bit on the content of Fishelov's books and briefly described several reviews in order to illustrate his contribution to literary studies both in Israel and abroad. If you want me to shorten or to change that part, please let me know. Davidgute (talk) 20:28, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Grin and Bear It[edit]

You're probably right, or perhaps the strip moved to a smaller syndicate or, as some cartoonist do, the creator is self-syndicating. While these latter suggestions are unlikely, an encyclopedia has to take them and other possibilities into consideration before pronouncing something dead. I do appreciate your understanding, and when I have more time, I'll dig into this some more myself. Who knows? We might find an obit for the cartoonist or something else that may provide confirmation.

And may I say it's good to be collaborating with someone on an older comic strip's article. There aren't many of us to take care of these pages! --Tenebrae (talk) 17:56, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

WSFM-LP[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of WSFM-LP, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: WAZO. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 15:27, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi, I saw your message on Coren's page about this. Just to let you know, it is perfectly ok to copy from one article to another. We are free after all! (See WP:CWW for all the details) The only thing we do need when doing that is for the edit summary to say something like "Content copied from [[article you copied from]], see that page for attribution." That way the license links back to the source, which is all that's really required. I'll put that on this article (yes even doing it after-the-fact is ok), so just for future reference. Thanks for your contributions! CrowCaw 21:46, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
