Your editsEdit

I noticed that you made some recent edits to the exodus that were inappropriately deleted. There are some editors pushing an agenda on that page, and I have been in disputes with them for a while. We are restarting an attempt to bring some balance back to that page. I fully support your edits, and if we work together we can make sure that your edits and other corrections to the article remain in place. I hope you will join us on the talk page for the exodus and that you help us in editing it further.Quarkgluonsoup (talk) 17:14, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Working up an articleEdit

I am now putting on my editor's cap (as in the "real" and "reel world", I am an editor and sometimes author). One of the most difficult aspects of writing in the post-electronic age is to establish a literary style that is not only comprehensible, but also is entirely in "your own voice". What that generally means is not simply rewriting others' works, but going beyond the "close paraphrasing" to create a totally original work. In the case of using someone's starting piece in a sandbox, be sure to use every resource that was already listed but then rewrite the passages into your own words, keeping in mind, that the wickiwacky realm is one of a community of writer/editors completing an encyclopedic account. That style is typically unbiased, "just the facts ma'm" type of writing, as compared to the more dramatic license afforded in journals and news reporting. My only advice is to seek out some of the more highly acclaimed Wikipedia articles, those with a "Good" or "Featured" article standing. Every wiki editor starts the same way, learning to navigate the waters and getting help from a diverse universe of others who are often content, style and reference experts.

The reason why Greg Goebel's "Air Vectors" website was challenged on the Douglas F3D Skynight article was due to it being a cumulative site that collects from other reference sources and is not considered as reliable as other more authoritative sources. The same thing came up with Joe Baugher's website which is again a great information source but is not considered as good as others and has often been challenged on Wikipedia. Both websites are regularly replaced by other second person or tertiary reference sources. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 15:48, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks still learning the in and outs of Wikipedia, as I finally have some time to do some contributing. That will end soon as my extra time will disappear as resume studies this fall. This is good writing practice to keep the pen sharp for fall. Unfortunately I will not be able to use wiki as a source because as you said above it is not considered as reliable as more authoritative sources. Professors will punish severely for using wiki.Pheasantpete (talk) 17:32, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
