Response to your message on my Talk PageEdit

Hi. You left a message on my Talk Page regarding my edits connected to Larry Feign. I do not know how to directly respond to your comment, so I'm leaving a message here.

Please understand that I am a long term friend and colleague of Larry Feign, though I have no professional or financial interest in his work. I made these edits, and uploaded a book cover image, in order to clarify statements about him and to add new information about his latest work, purely as a service. There is nothing of a promotional nature in the formation of my content. I receive nothing in return except an occasional (not always) thanks. As to why the book cover image claims to be my work, I have no idea why that would be. I made no such claim. It is the cover of his book, designed by a graphic design firm in (as far as I know) Spain.

I do object to your removing the mention of The Flower Boat Girl on the article about Zheng Yi Sao. It is an important book in the literature about her. My edit includes mention of new discoveries by the author that are not mentioned in the body of the article — Preceding unsigned comment added by MD Whalen (talkcontribs) 00:53, 31 August 2021 (UTC)[]

List of WarriorsEdit

Hi, I found the discussion regarding your request to delete the list of Warrior cats on my first attempt to learn more about Wikipedia policies. I consider myself a relatively new editor with barely 100 edits and I am not sure what I want to do about this - much less how to go about it.

Having read several of the Warrior books many years ago (to keep up with my kids who were reading them) I was surprised at the low quality of the list you proposed to delete. Notable characters from the series like Firestar, Tigerstar and Bluestar that probably qualify for their own article just as much as "Severus Snape" does are hardly described. Their notability is not supported even though they are the basis for internet memes.

I agree with your original sentiment that the list should be deleted. I found a much better list on a dedicated Warriors Wiki and added it to the main article as and External link. I believe that the existence of that link obviates the need for the poorly maintained Wikipedia list that you proposed to delete.

I understand that you withdrew the request and started a meta discussion about lists. One of the considerations that matter to me is that leaving the list there encourages squandering volunteer resources on an inferior text when they could be better used to update and maintain a sister Wiki that does a much better job of covering the subject.

I am not sure how to express my subjective feeling that the list should be deleted or what the appropriate forum might be for discussing it. I would appreciate any suggestions. Annette Maon (talk) 17:08, 23 September 2021 (UTC)[]
