Virginia House of Delegates CaseEdit

Hi! Recently, you left a comment on my article that my citation style was inconsistent. I made some edits to the citations I felt were weirdly formatted by wikipedia's automatic and did them manually. I would really appreciate it if you could look at my article again. Thank you!!— Preceding unsigned comment added by Astav2020 (talkcontribs) 22:30, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

@Astav2020: Thank you a ton for making that page! I've removed the tag now that you fixed the citation issue. Please, let me know if I can do anything else for you. Happy editing! –MJLTalk 22:02, 23 November 2019 (UTC)

Dear MJL. Thanks again for being so responsive and helpful with my page; I really appreciate it. I was wondering if you could please nominate my article for at least a C-Class level. Thanks again! Astav2020 (talk) 04:54, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

@Astav2020: Would you happen to be a teacher? I've begun reviewing the article, some initial concerns I have is that it's not exactly structured as readers may expect. The structure is a bit... off. It'd be great for an educational setting, but Wikipedia articles are generally formatted in past tense with goal of building an encyclopedia.
Here are some of Wikipedia's best articles on court cases you might like to read as good standards: Reed v. Town of Gilbert, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, Glasser v. United States, this one, and Bad Elk v. United States.
I'll finish looking at your article in a bit, though. –MJLTalk 23:23, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Thanks :)Edit

Hi MJL, I'll be offline, you'll be on your own.   Thank you very much and good luck. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 01:27, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

@ToBeFree: That's funny you messaged me because I was just about to message you saying we did a good job on saving that user from themselves there! Thank you a ton for the help in getting through to them.  MJLTalk 01:30, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
Oh, thank you.   And no worries. I hope we're actually dealing with a very new editor, because then I see great potential in the interest shown to devote time to Wikipedia for something that must seem boring to most people: cleaning up. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 01:36, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@ToBeFree: My guess is on them being a former vandal possibly a bit on the younger side. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I know a sizeable amount of anti-vandal folks were former vandals at one point. [Not me for whatever reason.. Before I had my account here, and when I was 14, this is the kind of edit I made. I just never felt like vandalizing.] –MJLTalk 02:00, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
There's still time, M. Levivich 05:10, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Levivich: I mean, I'm pretty sure if you will happen upon vandalism from my IP address, you will find it to have been from User:MJL's Evil Sister. She's explicitly taunted me with saying, after my explanation of the sockpuppetry policy, how easy it would be to get me blocked. ...And that is why I made her register an account lol.MJLTalk 05:22, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
 *Sigh.* You really are bad at vandalism, M.
First, the way the sister defense works is you vandalize something, then only after you're caught do you blame it on your "sister" and register "her" an account. You've gone and blown what could have been a months-long vandalism spree by registering the account first. Now who are you going to blame the vandalism on?
Second, "MJL's Evil Sister" is a terrible name for a bad hand sock. People are supposed to think that's someone else. What good is her brigading going to do you now?
You're a good editor, M, but when it comes to being disruptive, you still have a lot to learn. Levivich 05:42, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Levivich: Jokes on you buddy, you think that this is my twin being bad at vandalism, but actually this is me being great at making my twin sibling look like they are bad vandalism! All according to keikaku! (0`w´0✿)~MJL's Evil Sister (talk) 22:29, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

It's over.

A bowl of strawberries for you!Edit

  For spending time in digging up the past between the 2 warring editors and proposing suggestions to fix the problem. Although I disagree with the solutions proposed, I am glad that your proposals will take this forward and hopefully resolve the situation. DBigXray 07:16, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello,my friend, could you please also add Charles P. Roland to List of living centenarians— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.220.187 (talk) 12:34, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

  Done :D –MJLTalk 14:34, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Truth or Legends: In Your HometownEdit

Hi. Thought I'd let you handle this one, due to your history with the draft. The sourcing is still pretty slim, but in my opinion barely passes GNG with the CBS and Fox refs (imdb doesn't count, and the fourth ref doesn't even mention the show). Onel5969 TT me 13:38, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

@Onel5969: To be honest, I rather hate denying drafts and if you think you can make an arguement that it meets GNG, then I'm all for you accepting it. I know the article's creator really wants it published, at least.  MJLTalk 18:02, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, after re-looking at the sourcing, however, I don't think it makes the GNG threshhold. When I just went back, seems another editor agrees with that and has sent it to AfD.Onel5969 TT me 18:48, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
@onel5969: Oof. Well.. at least I am not the villain here! I think it's funny we had the same idea just to put it back into draftspace just to return to the status quo.
I'll leave it for you to explain to our pal Jeremyeyork why that's gotta happen lol –MJLTalk 19:01, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
  - and I hope you don't think I was canvassing you to comment at the AfD.Onel5969 TT me 19:03, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
@Onel5969: Nah, lol- You'd have had to predict the future to do that. Both the article and the draft are in my watchlist, so I was going to find out sooner or later. [I just check talk page messages first, then pings, write articles, and then watchlist.] –MJLTalk 19:17, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

BongoEdit

What is the copyright violation on bongo? How much needs to be rewritten? Is there anything we can do to help? You don't seem to have listed it. 22:18, 27 November 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6000:F510:8F00:592B:6913:1A3:4F94 (talk)

Hi, sorry for not getting back sooner. This is the copyright report. If you are able to rewrite this portion of the article, then it will likely be settled more expediently. –MJLTalk 01:52, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

ReviewEdit

Can you review Ramesh Solanki page?-- Harshil want to talk? 02:07, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

@Harshil169: If I review the page, I'm probably going to have to tag it for undue weight and lacking sufficient context. Is that acceptable to you? –MJLTalk 02:33, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Wait, I can submit it to some Indian who is familiar with subject. Let's see what is their opinion?-- Harshil want to talk? 02:40, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
Heck!Someone else already reviewed it. Thanks!-- Harshil want to talk? 02:45, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Scripts++ Newsletter – Issue 11Edit

Can you teach me how to reach consensus on something.Edit

I wanted to change the name of an article. Instead of chamging I opt for discussion coz I know it's something some people won't agree. Anti Hindu Sentiments. I asked a request to change the name. One person disagree but others are in agree and I don't know how and what to do next. Edward Zigma (talk) 08:34, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

@Edward Zigma: The answer is simple: nothing. If it seems like there is a clear majority in support of an action, then whoever closes the move request will generally follow that. If they say something particularly objectionable, then someone else generally will respond instead.  MJLTalk 15:51, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

ISNT THERE SOMETHING TO OVERRIDE FOR FAIR-USE RATIONALE{{subst:03:54, 3 December 2019‎ 1.43.229.8}}
Sadly, no my friend. It's really important that Wikipedia has such a strict Image use policy because it encourages people to share their works in a free manner.
Just a preliminary search on those figures turned almost nothing useful, so basically the only chance we will have of ever getting a photo of them on here sometime soon is if someone meets them in person (or has a contact with their agent).
Honestly, the Rick Price picture was practically a miracle find, and I only managed to get the one we have now because someone took a photo of him 6 years ago under a compatible license.  MJLTalk 04:09, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Request on 22:39:42, 3 December 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by TessadowEdit


Hi there, I am just trying to figure out specific feedback on why my submission was denied. It says due to its sources, though all sources included are from reliable websites and are reviews of the brand. Was there a specific source or section that should be changed?

Tessadow (talk) 22:39, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

@Tessadow: Hi there! You have a list of Sources here as well which include links to Facebook and such. However, the primary concern I had was that the draft reads very much like an advertisement. That's a major problem. I would be happy to clean up the article for you, but that would involve getting rid of large swaths of the article (such as the Publicity/Press Commentary and Website sections entirely as well as removing a sizeable amount of prose). Instead of doing that, I just denied the submission. My apologies for the inconvenience.
Also, do you have any affiliation with Gap? I generally have to ask whether or not you are being paid to edit in situations like this. –MJLTalk 22:49, 3 December 2019 (UTC)

Request on 15:23:41, 4 December 2019 for assistance on AfC submission by TessadowEdit


Hi there, thank you for explaining your edits and concerns. I listed the sources initially as I had hyperlinked words in the body of the text with those links and just wanted to make sure I was citing appropriately! Regarding the press commentary, I included this section as I noticed other Wikipedia pages of similar brands (e.g. Untuckit) included these kinds of sections to share feedback on editor's experience with the product. If you are able to make the edits that you think would help that would be greatly appreciated, and I am not associate with GAP!

Thank you, Tessadow (talk) 15:23, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

@Tessadow: Yeah, if you look at Untuckit#top, you'll see that the article has been tagged for needing improvement as it has the problem of reading as an advertisement as well. I'll make the necessary changes to Hill City for you in a bit.  MJLTalk 15:53, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Longford Lyell AwardEdit

Hello Wandering Vagabond to Christmas ., could you please restore article , the Longford Lyall Award, also was wondering to ask an important question regarding article "INFOBOX SECTION", some people write in the OCCUPATION Section when doenoting more than one (1) entry (or more than one specific occupation) as actress, director, producer, screenwriter, playwright etc., was wondering as i write it ALWAYS as a hlist entry, what is appropriate, some say a {{hlist}} is usually for three (3) or more occupations or entries.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.43.229.8 (talk) 06:50, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

oop's typo!!! Longford Lyell Award most recent recipient is Sam Neill (actor) {{hlist|Actor|director|producer|...}}— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.43.229.8 (talk) 06:58, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
Done. To your question, I try to keep it to only the most critical stuff (and not more than three but maybe four), so for Sam Neill I would say {{hlist|Actor|filmmaker|vineyard proprietor}} since filmmaker can cover director, producer, and writer.  MJLTalk 14:06, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
Thank-you, but the last two (2) entries in Longford Lyell Award need to be referenced, as specially as it is a special distinction category, kind regards— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.102.44 (talk) 01:23, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

hi, MJL,

many thanks for comments on my first article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:POLARDB I revised some and add more reference in the article, according to your comments and some help from other friends.

AACTA Awards is doesn't seem to need fixing, and I'll get on the Longford Lyell Award in bit (Funnily enough, I got distracted with Writers Guild of America Awards 2019-- a competing awards ceremony!).
Also, I was rather surprised by this edit because I can't recall the last time you ever put a comment in the designated section before. I think you're starting to get the hang of Wiki-Syntax after all!!

Thank you, sorry i think maybe you maybe overlooked it (the mistake!!), i should have been more descriptive, it is in AACTA Awards down the page where it states 2019 ceremony,— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.102.44 (talk) 07:10, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Basically, per this help page, if you want to use a reference more than once you should name it. It should go something like this:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.<ref name="Author20XX">{{cite web |title=Example Domain |url=http://example.com/ |website=example.com |access-date=6 December 2019 |language=en |url-status=live}}</ref>

Nulla rutrum, lorem vel ultricies elementum, sapien ligula malesuada sapien, at porta lacus quam at dui. Fusce rutrum facilisis porttitor.<ref name="Author20XX" /> Nulla facilisi. Donec cursus nulla at justo scelerisque, at ultricies arcu rhoncus. In convallis, elit sed laoreet feugiat, diam est viverra sem, sit amet laoreet quam felis sed tortor. Quisque laoreet nec turpis elementum sollicitudin. Fusce sodales porta auctor. Nulla sed eros et sem tempor feugiat. Sed sit amet erat sit amet eros luctus bibendum.

In this case, you're going to want to make this line:
<ref>{{cite web|url=https://www.aacta.org/aacta-awards/winners-and-nominees/|title=Winners & Nominees|website=Aacta.org|accessdate=24 January 2019}}</ref>

Copyrighted imagesEdit

Basically, I had to remove the Wendy Blacklock picture. Basically, (and this might sound ridiculous because it sort of is) despite us hosting that photo, we are actually not allowed to use it in those cases. Our policy basically says that we aren't allowed to use copyrighted images of people who are still alive. –MJLTalk 01:07, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

That is okay, i thought it might have been but was not sure, as so many are copyrighted these days, it is why so many article's remain photoless, which is of course ridiculous as it just goes to spoil the whole project, how did you go with the INFOBOXES, kind regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.102.44 (talk) 04:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

For the most part, I try to avoid fair use/copyrighted images at all costs. That can be such a landmine to deal with, and it's just easier to upload pictures that I know to be in free.
Infoboxes are   Done, though I probably should go back and add a few more relevant parameters like who they married and such. –MJLTalk 04:38, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Sadly, this is all too common among editors who deal with IP users.  MJLTalk 09:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Also in regards to article Virginia McLaurin) birthdate is given as MARCH12, 1909, aged an extraordinary 110 year sold also the part where it says in article, other sources give a different date, i am not complaining, but as far as i can understand, even though a am certainly no professional editor , this constitutes original research, and just GERONTOLOGY WEBSITES, are not permitted, am i correct— Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.102.44 (talk) 08:43, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
You are absolutely correct. I'll have to investigate that because genealogy websites are no where close to as reliable as the Washington Post. –MJLTalk 09:09, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
I removed the primary source. If they add it back, please let me know. –MJLTalk 09:16, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Hello , thanks could you please add Virginia McLaurin to List of living centenarians — Preceding unsigned comment added by 1.42.102.44 (talk) 10:46, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

I did, but she was removed due to an apparent consensus not to include her on the list. We'll have to go to the article's talk page and make a good arguement that she meets the list's criteria if we want to add her back to the list. –MJLTalk 16:23, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
