A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for taking the time to look at the Clayton Knight DYK and add an article for Katharine Sturges Dodge. (I had planned on getting to that eventually. Now, I can work on just adding to it instead when I have free moments.)

And, yes, please feel fee to add an ALT hook to that DYK. TeriEmbrey (talk) 13:47, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Charlotte Caroline Richardson[edit]

Hi. hope you're well. I was going to copyedit this article but I'm a bit confused. Her father was Robert Richardson who married Elizabeth Smales so presumably Elizabeth took on his surname and therefore Charlotte is Charlotte Caroline Richardson? What name was she writing under in her career Richardson from her father or Smales from her mother? It's noted later in the article she took on her husband's name "Richardson" but surely she's already called Richardson due to her father. Cowlibob (talk) 14:15, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

I was surprised to see the DYK credit. Thanks for adding! Cowlibob (talk) 18:43, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Rik Vercoe[edit]

Victuallers, there's been a response to the issues you raised in your review here. Were you planning to return to do another round, or should I post a request for a new reviewer? Please let me know if the latter. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:54, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Clayton Knight & Clayton Knight Committee articles[edit]

Thanks for pointing out the problems with the Clayton Knight articles in relation to the Art gallery source. I didn't personally read or use the source that is causing the problems in my work in editing those articles. I am pretty sure that both articles can be fixed within the next week though. TeriEmbrey (talk) 14:09, 20 April 2015 (UTC) That's cool, the main problem here is just fixing it (and hopefully teaching) Victuallers (talk) 15:55, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Ann Lemoine[edit]

I'm not sure how much more can be found on her, but Ann Lemoine was an interesting person, and perhaps you have access to some other resources in your neck of the woods. If you're busy with other things, no worries. --Rosiestep (talk) 02:48, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Review[edit]

Hi! Can you please consider reviewing this Template:Did you know nominations/Dah Parvatiya which is pending since 6 March. Thanks.--Nvvchar. 06:25, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Ellen P.[edit]

Why was Ellen Pickering DYK nom closed? I only waited for sources or a reply? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:43, 22 April 2015 (UTC) Hi Gerda, I should have asked you. However the article still has a dispute tag and I agree with you that it would not have a strong hook. I made this a DYK because Poovey used it as a counter example of the type of work that we are doing as part of Women's History Month. I thought the discussion during the nomination was very silly and I didn't want to waste more time. If you would like to bring the nomination back then I will. All my best respects. Roger Victuallers (talk) 20:53, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Please reopen the DYK as you shouldn't be the one opening and closing your own hook. As of yesterday, I have obtained all of the missing sources through the resource exchange process and I am in the process of solving the NPOV dispute in the next 48 hours with the available material. @Gerda Arendt:. Viriditas (talk) 02:38, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Victuallers, I can't help but notice that you closed out the DYK at 20:24, 22 April,[1] approximately one hour after I acknowledged receiving all of the requested sources after waiting a week for them.[2]. This appears to be much more than a simple coincidence and makes you look like a vindictive, spiteful person who is more interested in his own ego and less in improving the encyclopedia. I have to say, Victuallers, this makes you look very, very bad. Viriditas (talk) 02:43, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

I better don't say, Viriditas, how the last comment makes you look in my eyes. Get the sources in, revert the close or promote it to GA, move on, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:03, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Do tell me, Gerda Arendt, how it makes me look. Eleven different editors worked on this DYK and the article in an attempt to improve it, only to have Victuallers scuttle the DYK because he couldn't bear the thought of collaboration. I just read 30+ pages of sources I requested to help fix this problem and devoted much time over the past several weeks. So please, by all means, tell me how it makes me look. The DYK Victuallers submitted was a gross distortion and placed undue weight on a disputed, controversial opinion. Instead of reviewing the sources, he ignored them. Instead of allowing others to help fix the problem, he closed the DYK approximately one hour after I received the sources on the request board. You may want to get your eyes checked. I should also point out that other editors provided perfectly good hooks such as Maile's ALT2, so there wasn't any reason to close the DYK in the first place. As usual, I have no dog in this fight. I have no DYK credit coming to me, or any reason to be "involved". My only interest was in using my valuable time to promote the article and hook to the main page. It's therefore ironic, that the biggest obstacle to this task is the nominator himself. Viriditas (talk) 08:11, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
I have no time to read all this. Revert the close and move on. - The term scuttle reminds me of the worst thing happening to me here. See my talk for the spiral of justice ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:13, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
I apologize. I hate it when people use a word that reminds me of something else. :) I will not revert the action of an admin, as that usually results in a block. Frankly, I'm completely over this. Like I said, I have no dog in this fight. I don't care what happens. However, when I put in this much time, I very much like to have a documented record of following through with what I say I'm going to do. I told you on your talk page, Gerda, that I was going to request the sources and fix the article so you could pass it. Because the nominator closed out the DYK one hour after I received the sources, I can no longer follow through on what I said I was going to do. That's my primary issue. Anyway, I'll give it a rest now. Viriditas (talk) 08:15, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Before reading, I reopened the nomination. If you want to add to the article, feel free to do so, if not I will ask others to look at the tag. A DYK article is not required to be "complete". --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:22, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
If you guys are interested in this then be my guest. (I would n't dream of blocking you for reverting my normal edits. That is not what I was given "the tools".) I erroneously thought that this article was only just worth writing because I have a thing about trying to get every female recognised by the UK Dictionary of National Biography to have an article. Its part of a drive to pull these people back from obscurity and queue jump them (for once) over their male peers. I don't think Ms Pickering is very interesting apart from the fact that she was the subject of a modern debate at a conference in 1999. I find the idea of a content dispute to be against the spirit of my editing (as I don't intend to dispute any AGFable editor (which we all are)). If there is "a dispute" then I don't want to be involved - which is why I no longer wanted to support the DYK nom. but I'm quite happy for you guys to continue if one of you wants to re-nominate, if this is allowed.
