DiscussionEdit

Hey, Jasper. Re: the mbira page. I understand that you just reverted my single last edit which was HIGHLY uncited, however you undid EVERYTHING, I made things in separate edits on purpose so they could be reviewed. Please just undo the last one rather than every single edit. This Mbira page is terribly inaccurate, I did substantial clean up and reorganization. I implore you to look back and just remove the last single post, or dutifully explore each contribution and remove if need be, a blanket reset of all my work is not in the best interest of the page. 47.208.63.235 (talk) 04:54, 12 August 2019 (UTC) sorry, I wasn't logged in. Now I did. There is significant factual innacuracies all throughout that page that I corrected and resorted into more coherency. I appreciate you taking the time to reassess Seth.geddes (talk) 05:01, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Respectfully, I reverted the page to a previous edit that did not contain the admittedly essay like section. I went out on a limb with that edit and I hope to put something like it back into the article someday with proper citation. One of the largest issues of the page was a very oversimplification of calling all lamellaphones mbira, which is factually wrong, and culturally assualting to the Shona people. Mbira is a Shona word, from the Bantu language group. Though other lamellaphones exist throught Africa and have spread, the article made many 'uncited inaccurate statements lumping them all together, it included references to Griot of west africa, and the instruments by other names in the Congo. As the title of this page is "Mbira" we must ensure that it accurately reflects what mbira actually is in fact, a traditional Shona group of instruments. Anyhow, I pray that this finds you well, and the before simply reverting any more edits you actually look at the improvement I did to the page. I removed an obvious advertisement for Kalimba Magic, I reordered some sections so they were more coherent, I added more specificity to needed areas, etc... It is a much better article than it was. If there is any glaring needs for citation of anything I added, I request you add a citation needed tag and let me know so I can address it. This instrument is dear to me and I want it represented accurately and I literally spent many hours the last few days making multiple individual edits so an admin could thoroughly vet my contributions and judge them independently. Thanks in advance for your consideration. Seth.geddes (talk) 06:56, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Research ProjectEdit

Hi Jasper Deng

I'm an anthropology student doing an online research project on wikipedians and their motivations and ideals for writing and editing wikipedia pages. I was wondering if you would be interested in answering a few questions I have - sort of like a small online interview.
