Enabling e-mail[edit]

Hi, Yona. It's easy to enable your e-mail - just click on the "Preferences" tab at the top of your screen, and then scroll down to the e-mails options and click on the "Enable e-mails" box. Your class should experiment with their "Preferences", as it lets you customize your user experience. -- Ssilvers (talk) 22:13, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Greek chorus[edit]

Hi Yona, nice start on that article! I've moved your message on its talk page down to a more standard location and responded to it. I've also unleashed the citation expander on your sandbox ... hope you don't mind. It would be helpful if you could add page numbers for the book citations, in case you weren't already going to do that. Graham87 15:50, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

No worries! I've formatted your recent additions; the only major problem is with the reference you added to Montgomery, pg. 205; that's an invalid page number for the Montgomery ref in your sandbox, so I've just used the existing reference. Also, did you intend the references that you added to cover the entire paragraph? (e.g. in the paragraph about Wagner, the first sentences are covered by the Montgomery ref, but the last are completely unreferenced). If so, it'd be better to move the references to the end of the paragraph. You might find the help pages on referencing for beginners and footnotes useful.

However, I've undone your well-intentioned attempts to get outside feedback on the Greek chorus article. The articles for creation process is just for newly created articles and the peer review process is for extremely well-developed pages. As a new editor, better places for you to get feedback would be the teahouse and the help desk. Graham87 02:28, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Graham. Yona, once you have taken the article as far as you can, let me know, and I will look in on it and see if I can make any suggestions. Another way to get feedback would be to leave a message at the talk page for the Theatre project and also, perhaps, on the talk page for the article Theatre of ancient Greece. -- Ssilvers (talk) 17:59, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

Re: the peer reviews, I didn't realize that classmates were reviewing each others' work. Sorry for making things even more confusing. I've moved your second attempt to create a peer review for the "Greek chorus" article to the right place at Wikipedia:Peer review/Greek chorus/archive1. @Ssilvers:, what should be done from here? Should the comments be copied over to the new peer review page, or should it simply be deleted? Graham87 01:35, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Haha! I thought this was Greek chorus, not The Comedy of Errors.  :-] — I moved the peer reviews to the peer review page. -- Ssilvers (talk) 01:43, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
