Appointment as Member of the Order of the British Empire

I've changed your edit on Lesley Abdela that referenced "Member of the British Empire", this should be Member of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. The name of the order is in section 1 and ranks of the order in section 2 of The Statutes of the Order of the British Empire (The London Gazette: (Supplement) no. 30250. pp. 7791–7999.

Sock puppet investigations and protocol

Hi Vintage Feminist, thank you for your message on my talk page. However I need to explain that this was not the right way to go about this. Sockpuppetry is a serious accusation against another user. In the case of the user you identified they were clearly linked as alternative accounts (see the outcome of the investigation). I understand that this can be confusing but we do have a policy on legitimate use of multiple accounts (see WP:SOCK#LEGIT). Also it is courteous to notify the user that you are reporting not other users. On the other hand notifying others can be seen as canvassing, and that's not appropriate. This approach can also led to miscommunication and that can led to interpersonal issues. As you are a relatively new editor here I can see that this was merely a mistake so I'm just giving you a heads-up on what people expect here--Cailil talk 14:46, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. You are right I am new and I didn't know the rules regarding canvassing.
Just to be clear this was not a case of undeclared sock puppetry (I could see the declaration at the top of Iamcuriousblue's page and said so in my report). This was a case of illegitimate uses namely avoiding scrutiny and posing as a neutral commentator for going back and forth on the same article as two different users. Since I couldn't see where you were supposed to report suspected breaches, I sent an e-mail to the arbitration committee. Roger Davies replied saying "Hi: Thanks for your note. The committee is not normally the first port of call for sockpuppet investigations, which are instead dealt with at WP:SPI. Best is probably to file a case there. Roger Davies" I instigated the investigation on his advice.
As for the issue of notifying the user about the report - in the "important notes" section on the main page it states: "You can notify the suspected accounts by adding [code given] to the bottom of their talk pages. (Notification is courteous but isn't mandatory, and in some cases it may be sub-optimal. Use your best judgement.}" and again, on the page that you actually fill in it says "You may wish to notify the accused..." I perceived it to be sub-optimal* and notified those who I felt had been duped (ironically as a courtesy). Finally, regarding the outcome of the investigation, again my lack of knowledge meant I didn't realize that the length of time that had elapsed since the rules were broken would make the slightest bit of difference.
Overall, I regarded the whole thing as a simple administrative, housekeeping exercise, where the administrators would look at the days/dates/times and ask: Did this user break the rules? Yes / No, and take whatever action they thought necessary. Rather like tidying up the references section in an article. Having read their comments and yours I can see that this isn't the case.
Thanks again for your time over this.
*I can't imagine the circumstances when it wouldn't be sub-optimal. I may discuss it with Wikimedia's Gender Gap Project. The Vintage Feminist (talk) 04:42, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Opening an SSPI is intimidating at the best of times. Yes indeed the WP:SSPI does give advice on whether its optimal to advise the named user of the investigation. However, generally when dealing with linked accounts (no matter how clearly that link has been made) it is best to advise them - that's not in the 'rulebook' its just my observation over the years. And I can see why you opened this case - the page User:Iamcuriousblue doesn't clarify that they have/had a legit master account, but the User:Peter_G_Werner page does that the other account is a legit alternative account. This should have been clarified and I'm sure Iamcuriousblue will do so. My general advice is that a talk page discussion with the user might have sort this without the need to go to SSPI. But again no worries, Wikipedia's systems can be byzantine & our expectations of how people behaviour are often counter-intuitive. If you ever need to ask anything drop me (or any other sysop) a line--Cailil talk 21:25, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Sexualization article revert

Hi. I just reverted your edit at the sexualization article [1]. This kind of revert can be painful and I sympathize but it's not appropriate to reproduce the EU draft proposal on sexualisation within the article itself. FiachraByrne (talk) 18:20, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

I've left a note on the article talk page (Talk:Sexualization#20 March rewrite) which expands on this a little further. Thryduulf (talk) 18:25, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

UNiTE to end violence against women

Hello The Vintage Feminist,

It seems to me that an article you worked on, UNiTE to end violence against women, may be copied from http://endviolence.un.org/about.shtml. It's entirely possible that I made a mistake, but I wanted to let you know because Wikipedia is strict about copying from other sites.

It's important that you edit the article and rewrite it in your own words, unless you're absolutely certain nothing in it is copied. If you're not sure how to fix the problem or have any questions, there are people at the help desk who are happy to assist you.

Thank you for helping build a free encyclopedia! MadmanBot (talk) 03:13, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 20

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Rosie Barnes, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Guy Barnett (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Notability noticeboard

Hello The Vintage Feminist,

I saw your inquiry. If you are questioning whether these two sources are reliable, then I suggest the Reliable sources noticeboard. I hope this helps. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 03:45, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Mavis Maclean

Hello, The Vintage Feminist, and thank you for your contributions!

An article you worked on Mavis Maclean, appears to be directly copied from http://www.spsw.ox.ac.uk/fileadmin/static/Oxflap/Members/Maclean.html. Please take a minute to make sure that the text is freely licensed and properly attributed as a reference, otherwise the article may be deleted.

It's entirely possible that this bot made a mistake, so please feel free to remove this notice and the tag it placed on Mavis Maclean if necessary. MadmanBot (talk) 12:21, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Adding templates

Hello and welcome. Please note that acording to long-established common practice generic sidebar templates and links to portals are not meant to be included in biographical pages. Their addition is seldom useful since all of the important links are in the infoboxes of these articles. Sidebar templates are only meant to be included in pages which are linked to them. So it is appropriate to add a "Kantianism" template to the article about Arthur Schopenhauer, but it is not appropriate to add it to the article about Michael Sandel.

Note that most navigational boxes should not be placed in a biographical article unless the name of the topic of the article is listed in the navigational box. So, e.g., it is not appropriate to add a "Universities in the United Kingdom" template to Catherine Malabou since her name is not included in the template.

Also note that certain categories are inappropriate for biographical articles; so, e.g. one may add Category:Feminist theory to the article Cultural feminism but it is not appropriate to add that category to the article about Judith Butler. Please take a look at FAQ/Categorization and WP:COP. Happy editing! --Omnipaedista (talk) 09:47, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

As per above, please stop adding navigational boxes without a good reason (as you did in the following articles: 'Rane Willerslev', 'Carol Smart', 'Mavis Maclean', 'John Eekelaar'). Those templates are only meant to be included in pages which are linked to it, not to every single article that is relevant to their subject. Also note that the 'Authority control' template goes above the 'Persondata template' per WP:ORDER. Please don't "correct" things that are already in conformance with the Manual of Style. Thank you. --Omnipaedista (talk) 02:28, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Alison Assiter

 

The article Alison Assiter has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Jezhotwells (talk) 10:42, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Article was already exist

Hello, good to see you editing and helping Wikipedia, you have just created Fifty Shades of Grey (2014 film) but an article with title Fifty Shades of Grey (film) was already exist in Wikipedia. You just have to add contents in that. I'm going to ask someone to merge the editing history, thanks. -- Assassin! No, Captain Assassin! ( T - C - G ) 03:00, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your consideration and effort but I think you should redirect Fifty Shades of Grey (2014 film) article into the Fifty Shades of Grey (film) so it can take readers to the single article. Editing history will be merged soon, thanks again. -- Assassin! No, Captain Assassin! ( T - C - G ) 05:58, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

"Further reading"

I saw that you added papers by Meenakshi Gigi Durham to practically every article they might be relevant to, ranging from gang rape and victim blaming via Twilight (series) to the National Football League draft. I don't think that's appropriate. Firstly, it gives the impression that you are unduly promoting the works of specific scholars, giving them undue weight. Or to be blunt, it looks like citation spam to me, especially when the article on Durham doesn't establish her notability. Secondly, I'd say some of those papers represent fringe aspects of the topic you added them to, irrespective of the particular author - especially the NFL draft. Huon (talk) 21:53, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

I have removed all of the remaining "further reading" sections. Please do not re-introduce this citation without first discussing it on each article's talk page. --Chris (talk) 06:35, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

I have also left a message with User:Materialscientist. Denisarona (talk) 09:39, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
They are comedy acts the links show which comedy agent they are ALREADY signed to. It's not touting for trade if they are already on the agent's books.
Why didn't you message me first about this before you went 'revert crazy'? Oh, and it's a small point, but I have nothing to do with the company in question, so why would I bother spamming for them? --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 09:48, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Vintage Feminist, I noticed the discussion on Materialscientist's page. The agent is hardly an encyclopedic part of an article on a comedian — as 58.x says, it's not interesting. I don't see agents mentioned for actors etc — why for "comedy acts" in particular? There's no need to assume a conflict of interest, but in practice mentioning the agent amounts to spam. Especially if its placed in the very short lead sections. I don't understand the argument "It's not touting for trade if they are already on the agent's books", it doesn't make sense. Of course any mention of a company in a Wikipedia article tends to be to the advantage of that company — to make others (not indeed the article subject, who they already represent) more aware of it. Please don't re-add it. Bishonen | talk 10:26, 24 August 2013 (UTC).
Thanks for your message. Just to be clear, I noticed that Off the Kerb had a very small article on Wikipedia despite them having been a major player on British TV for over 30 years, so I added a list of artists that the company represent to their article and then went onto each artist's page and said who represented them.
The opening paragraph of Wikipedia's entry on talent agents states, "Agents cannot produce their own shows due to conflict of interest." This may be true in the US but not in the UK. Off the Kerb is the production company whilst Open Mike Productions makes programming that acts as a vehicle for the acts that Off the Kerb represents, so they are more than simply an agent, (Avalon do the same but I'm not aware of anything similar for actors even in the UK). The infobox of films tells you who the production companies are, but the infobox for comedians has no "agent" parameter (perhaps I'll suggest it as a proposal), which is why I put who represents them into the opening paragraph of their articles.
When I said "It's not touting for trade if they are already on the agent's books", what I meant was, I wasn't suggesting "Off the Kerb are a very good agency and it would be a smart move if this act signed with them immediately.", the acts in question are already signed to OTK.
Finally I just wanted to say that my main objection to 58.8.114.97 were the comments he made in the edit history of each article he reverted, stating "rmv addition by known spammer". 58.8.114.97 has no justification for calling me a "known spammer" and when I left a message on Denisarona's talk page asking what I should do, 58.8.114.97 jumped in again, aggressively saying "What should you do? Stop spamming articles." I believe 58.8.114.97's anger and antagonistic behaviour has been entirely disproportionate. It is also disingenuous of 58.8.114.97 to claim, retrospectively, that he/she "tried to start discussions". --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 15:20, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Keeley Hazell and pornography portal

You are wasting your time debating this at the BLP noticeboard. You need to establish consensus about the larger issue - is "glamour modelling" generally considered "porn"? There are cases to be made for and against, so I think your best choice is to start a discussion on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Pornography to get some input. Delicious carbuncle (talk) 13:03, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

I basically agree with DC above. That BLP noticeboard discussion is going exactly where I thought it would a few days ago...nowhere. It's full of the a general "bare breasts...ewwww!" attitude that "porn" is a horrible thing that one shouldn't label someone with without a mountain of "evidence". The real issue is whether or not Page 3 girls are engaging in softcore pornography, which could be discussed & settled in any number of forums, including the one suggested above. I'm no expert at all on the Page 3 thing, and the alleged sex tape issue doesn't appear to have gone anywhere over the years on the Keeley Hazell talk page.
I've also noticed that a lot of these Page 3 girls have suddenly shown up here, which I assume is your doing (?). Guy1890 (talk) 00:25, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Fifty Shades of Grey WikiProject templates

Hello. I just thought I should explain this edit I made earlier to Talk:Fifty Shades of Grey (film):[2] I removed most of the WikiProject templates you added, leaving only {{WikiProject Film}}. There's no strict policy here - the final decision on whether an article belongs in a WikiProject is ultimately up to the WikiProject itself. But in my view, we should try to avoid cluttering talk pages with templates for unrelated and tangentially-related WikiProjects. In this case, Fifty Shades of Grey (film) is clearly relevant to WikiProject Film; but it's not obviously related to the WikiProjects for Feminism or Gender Studies, and quite plainly unrelated to WikiProject Discrimination. If in doubt about whether a WikiProject template belongs on an article, take a look at what categories it's in; I believe the categorisation of Fifty Shades of Grey (film) supports my actions here.

Proposed deletion of Palimpsest (journal)

 

The article Palimpsest (journal) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable new journal. Not indexed in any selective databases, no independent sources. Does not meet WP:NJournals or WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited June 20, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Andrew Graham and Gordon Marshall (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Happened across your user page via AN/I. Loving your work, keep at it. — Scott talk 12:40, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

You said: "Mark Miller, participation rates for women are unlikely to improve unless we roll our sleeves up and get stuck in." I cannot agree with you more. Editor retention tried to look into the situation but the research seemed to fall off. Oddly enough, just before your ANI posting I discovered a new project that Tparis had begun, Wikipedia:WikiProject Countering systemic bias/Gender bias task force. The number of female editors is very low and the if I understand your post at ANI correctly, that blog article was part of that Men's rights movement. I guess that was what Baseball Bugs was trying to say. I agree with Scott above. keep up the good work and I am now watch listing you user page.

Serial killers

I don't think you should add the male or female categories to unidentified serial killers. I was intentionally leaving them out, we don't know we they are. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 02:00, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Categories

Your work on murderers and serial killers raises something that's been niggling at me for a while. At least now actors are not split into actors and actresses, but I looked at just one female novelist and found this:

Category:American women writers, there is Category:American male writers

Category:French women writers, there is Category:French male writers

Category:American women novelists, there is Category:American male novelists

Category:French women novelists, but no Category:French male novelists

Category:20th-century women writers, but no Category:20th-century male writers

Category:21st-century women writers, but no Category:21st-century male writers

In general I think that "categories" are a bit overdone. But categorising on a male/female binary particularly so. pablo 20:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

I agree that categories can be a bit overdone but I found that by having, for example, Category:French female serial killers that I was able to use it as a replacement for both Category:French serial killers and Category:Female serial killers. Users of Wikipedia can navigate by: serial killers > serial killers by nationality > French serial killers > French female serial killers. Alternatively they can search by: serial killers > female serial killers > then look for nationality.
Gender can be a useful categorization for categories especially when they are large, but for me it is a case of avoiding a "female dumping ground" to reduce the size of a particular category. Perhaps it is a policy idea "that no gender orientated category should be created without a similar opposite gender category being created". Possibly with transgender being discussed on a case-by-case basis. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 20:35, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
That would make sense and avoids the risk of 'othering' (whether this is done inadvertently or no). I am unsure about how transgender would fit, and tend to avoid discussion in that area. pablo 08:22, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi The Vintage Feminist:

Thank you for your opinion. Sadly who were in favor of the deletion were mostly women. There is a lot of men journalists and also women without any relevance in Wikipidia. Blanquska (talk) 04:23, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

POV pushing

Let me be blunt here. Your regular, almost paranoic, aspersions on others who do not share your obvious bias regarding the GGTF being primarily a means to promote feminism comes across to me, and I imagine others, as being almost childish, rather immature, and frankly counterproductive. Please reas WP:AGF and realize that it is possible, however fervently you might apparently believe otherwise, that people can legitimately disagree with your opinions and not be anti-feminist. And, yes, as I said on the talk page in question, the purpose of the task force was to increase the participation of women of all sorts, not just radical feminists like you apparently are. And, also, at some point, you might want to look over the various pages of Bibliography of encyclopedias and see that I have added several entries there which apparently relate to women which do not necessarily show the radical anti-feminist bias you so strongly and obviously indicate is shared by anyone who doesn't want to see the GGTF become the "feminist WikiProject" in all but name. Frankly, I can honestly say that there are some other women who are active editors who do not share your personal biases and I have to think that if they see the comments and discussion at the GGTF talk page they may well become even perhaps a bit more disinterested or even opposed to the group than they might already be. John Carter (talk) 16:44, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Responding to your post on my user talk page, I think you will notice that I did not disagree with that statement, although your own comments seem to willfully denigate the possibility that women could be interested in topics of "traditional" interest to women. And it is not unreasonble to point out to you that your clear bias, as indicated by your user name, and your repeated unfounded insinuations regarding the motivations and thinking of others does clearly at least seem to border on the paranoic. While your comment on my user talk page makes it rather obvious that you either don't read what others say, or possibly, somewhat self-righteously(?) jump to conclusions and assume that your telepathy makes it possible for you to devise what they are "really" thinking, I have to say that much of your conduct and commentary of late seems to me anyway to be blindly biased in favor of a clearly feminist ideology. Maybe you could make more of an effort to actually read and address them, rather than try to spin everything, including the comments of others, to somehow perhaps reflect a feminist perspective in accord with your own. John Carter (talk) 16:57, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Speed

This is a new experience for me: to have another editor so speedily add to an article I'm creating (with something other than a "notability" tag or a category, at least) that a series of edit conflicts ensue. To further my understanding of how Wikipedia works, how did your attention come to it so quickly? --Andreas Philopater (talk) 20:20, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Hospital articles

Hi. You seem to be adding a social work portal to numerous hospital articles where this would not appear to be enhancing these articles. Hospitals are not a sub-category of social-care. Drchriswilliams (talk) 03:33, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Health and social care is becoming more integrated in Scotland, but please desist from spamming multiple hospital articles with a portal that is not directly relevant.Drchriswilliams (talk) 03:43, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

You are sequential adding a social work portal to articles even despite there being no mention of social work in the article, in facilities where the type of care provided is not social care. Please understand that would appear to be spamming, which needs to be challenged. Drchriswilliams (talk) 03:57, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm sorry if my reaction to your addition to these pages has caused you any upset. I admit it was harsh of me to use a phrase like "spamming" which can refer to some unpleasant behaviours. I guess your motivations were genuine and that you were aiming to be constructive. I recognise that there was not any commercial motivation in your actions. I had been concerned that I was seeing a systematic addition of unrelated material to a number of articles despite my attempts to discuss this further. I hope that we can make some progress discussing this at the WP:hospital talk page. Drchriswilliams (talk) 05:03, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Infoboxen

Infobox request on Parthenogenesis

Hello, you recently requested an infobox on Parthenogenesis. As a primarily biological article, I'm not sure what kind of infobox would be appropriate, at least in Category:Infobox templates. Since you added the request to the Gender Studies project banner (a Wikipedia area I'm less familiar with), did you have any particular infoboxes or navboxes in mind that would be pertinent in the context of the article? Cheers, --Animalparty-- (talk) 00:52, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

I was wondering the same thing about the Androgyny and Transgender articles. Not everything has an appropriate infobox or needs one. LadyofShalott 00:54, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Exactly. I was wondering similarly regarding this and this matter. And by "wondering," I mean that it seems that you are tagging all these talk pages simply because you don't see an infobox in the articles. Flyer22 (talk) 04:05, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
I see that you replied here on LadyofShalott's talk page. I prefer to keep discussion centralized (see WP:TALKCENT), so I am replying here. What you stated there is not a solid reason to tag these articles as needing an infobox. They likely don't need an infobox unless one already exists for them. And even in the case that infoboxes do exist for them, they still might not need one. WP:Leads are often better without infoboxes. I am likely to revert you on some of these infobox tags you've added. Flyer22 (talk) 04:18, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
"What you stated there is not a solid reason to tag these articles as needing an infobox." Why isn't it?
"WP:Leads are often better without infoboxes." Isn't that just a matter of opinion?
It strikes me that there are no infoboxes at all within Category:LGBT templates and that is merely a case of a infobox request not having been put in yet. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 04:38, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Regarding your "Why isn't it?" question, I feel that it isn't for the reasons I stated above. Once again, as seen here, you have needlessly requested an infobox. That article does not need an infobox; as is currently seen in it, it has a relevant sidebar at the top of the article and a sexual abuse template at its bottom; that is all that it needs. Is that my opinion? Yes. And I'm sure that it would be the opinion of others if I started a WP:RfC on the matter at that talk page. You are going around tagging all of these articles with a "needs an infobox" alert as though they need them. The vast majority of Wikipedia articles don't have infoboxes and do well without them. An infobox distracts our readers from the lead, and infoboxes or similar can take up a good portion of the lead, as in this case (an addiction glossary); so, yes, it is my opinion that WP:Leads are often better without infoboxes. You have had queries and/or complaints about the infobox tags you are adding, and you are likely to get more queries and/or complaints about them. Flyer22 (talk) 09:21, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
I have had one complaint, yours, and I have read it and replied to it. "yes, it is my opinion that WP:Leads are often better without infoboxes" - fine, in that case we will agree to disagree. You go your way I will go mine. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 09:26, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Guerillero, Animalparty, LadyofShalott do not seem pleased with your infobox tags; that, in addition to my query/complaint, is why I stated, "You have had queries and/or complaints about the infobox tags you are adding." And as for going "my way," Wikipedia is a collaborative editing environment and you are coming across articles that I have on my WP:Watchlist; so you are coming "my way." If you mean that I should go ahead and revert you, since you clearly do not want to discuss the matter, I will then. Flyer22 (talk) 09:33, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Theirs were queries, if they "do not seem pleased" it is because you have chosen to interpret it that way. By "you go your way I will go mine", I simply mean that I have read what you have to say, I have answered it and I have nothing further to add. Please put your comments to the Wikipedia community on the talk pages of the articles that you have on your watchlist as per WP:INFOBOXUSE, or as you've already said, at WP:RfC, rather than making the same point over and over on my talk page. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 09:51, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
If their comments only seem like queries and that they are not displeased by your tags, then that is because, unless they state otherwise, you have chosen to interpret those comments that way. Guerillero stated above, "This feels like a case of a Disinfobox and the box would be a wedge for POV pushers." And LadyofShalott stated, "Not everything has an appropriate infobox or needs one.", which is exactly the point I was getting across above, and is why I agreed with her. Those comments certainly do give an "I'm not pleased with your tags" impression. As for all this disagreement being a matter of how I view things, we can certainly open this topic up to wider community discussion, so that you can see that it is not simply an "it's only you" matter. I have not repeated myself over and over on your talk page. But, yes, my discussion with you on this matter has run its course. I have reverted you at some articles, and will not press further on this topic unless one or more WP:Edit wars result and/or it is addressed at the article talk pages. Flyer22 (talk) 10:18, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Let me state it more clearly: I do not agree with you that these articles should have infoboxes. Since you think they do, the onus is on you to show how such an infobox would be useful. You have not done so. LadyofShalott 15:10, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi The Vintage Feminist! I note that you've recently added a link to the Social Welfare and Social Work portal on a number of pages I'm interested in.

Eurohealth.ie

Hi: Thanks for comments on European Institute of Women's Health .. EUROHEALTH.IE

I think this may have been the first entry I submitted to Wikipedia.

I put up the original article and was not aware that anyone was questioning their validity and importance. While a small organisation , they are the ones who put women's health onto the European political agenda and have written reports for the EU, European Parliament and have attended UN and other international meetings as experts.

Today they organised and delivered an international meeting in Brussels:

Expert Workshops on Sex and Gender in Medicines Regulation and Medical Education 4th March 2015, 0900-1730. Room TRE7701, 7th floor, Trèves Building, 74 Rue de Trèves. European Economic and Social Committee, Brussels

I am a bit surprised that no notification was given on this topic or maybe I am being nieve...

They are currently in 4 major international EU funded projects.

Solow–Swan model

I appreciate when people clean up reference information (I do it all the time all over Wikipedia), but why did you here add the DOI information both in the designated field |doi= and again in the |url= parameter? This is redudant information, isn't it? --bender235 (talk) 14:19, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

It's just a personal choice thing, so that the name of the article has a hyperlink and the doi number can also be read (even without clicking on the link). Different editors do it different ways. Looking at help pages / advice etc. here suggests that it is fine (unless you know of some policy and/or consensus to the contrary that I'm not aware of).
The training video states "fill in as many fields as you can", it then goes on to show doi and ISSN being filled in, I've never really bothered with ISSN. --The Vintage Feminist (talk) 19:55, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I just saw some of your edits on pages I watch. I agree that a URL reference to a book DOI can still be useful, even if the DOI is also listed in the DOI field. Often enough, I can find a different URL to point to, but I would never consider it an error to see the URL field pointing to a DOI page for a book. Keep up the good work. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 22:46, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not aware of any policy or guideline, but I don't think this is good practice. In some case, you also added the |jstor= ID, which in combination with DOI and URL then gives thrice the same information. This is link overkill in my opinion. But maybe we should seek broader consensus for this. --bender235 (talk) 05:15, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Please help fix Barbara Bergmann's page

Very sadly, Barbara Bergmann died yesterday, 5 April 2015. Details should soon be published; I wanted to alert you since I'm not familliar with the process for changing bios of people who have recently died. Many thanks!DStrassmann (talk) 01:41, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

More info: The Fall 1998 issue of Feminist Economics published a short biography of Barbara Bergmann written by Marianne Ferber on pp 3-4 and an interview of Barbara by, Liz Strober on pp 5-6. Pages 193-201 include a complete bibliography of her books, chapters, articles, book reviews, and other publications written up to that date. I can help work on this, especially as more comes out, but wondered if this should first be moved out of the "living persons" category. DStrassmann (talk) 13:24, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

I've cleaned up her article a bit and added a further reading section with the special issue of Feminist Economics that you mentioned.

World Virtual Edit-a-thon on Women in Architecture

  • Dates: 15 to 25 October 2015
  • Location: Worldwide/virtual/online event
  • Host/Facilitator: Women in Red (WiR): Did you know that only 15% of the biographies on Wikipedia are about women? WiR focuses on "content gender gap". If you'd like to help contribute articles on women and women's works, we warmly welcome you!
  • Sponsor: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in association with Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, Women in Design, and Wikiproject Women Wikipedia Design
  • Event details: This is a virtual edit-a-thon hosted by WiR in parallel with a series of "physical" Guggenheim edit-a-thons. It will allow all those keen to improve Wikipedia's coverage of women in architecture and design to participate. The campaign aims to further the goals of Ada Lovelace Day for STEM, and Art+Feminism for art, in a field that by its nature combines both. As the virtual edit-a-thon stretches over a week and a half, inexperienced participants will be able to draw on the assistance of more experienced editors while creating, translating or improving articles on women who are (or have been) prominent in this field. All levels of Wikipedia editing experience are welcome.

ArbCom elections are now open!

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Proposed deletion of User:The Vintage Feminist/Clare Lockhart

Clare Lockhart

So I only recently became aware of the project Wikipedia:WikiProject Abandoned Drafts/Stale drafts because some of the articles I've been meaning to write showed up there. Anyway, since there is a Clare Lockhart page in mainspace, I merged the citations in your user-space draft with the mainspace article. If you still want to keep your draft, just get rid of the deletion tag.--Thelema12 (talk) 19:43, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

User:The Vintage Feminist/Female Chauvinist Pigs

Hi there, I noticed that there's a number of pages you created as drafts and then created in mainspace such as User:The Vintage Feminist/Female Chauvinist Pigs and Female Chauvinist Pigs when reviewing old drafts out there. Normally, the page should be moved so that the history is together rather than copied and pasted. We either redirect the draft page to the main one or to history merge the two so that the whole history is in one place. The reason is that there's changes to templates, to images, to categories, etc. and rather than having multiple versions of the same text lying around, it's generally a good idea to put it all together. If you could check on that and redirect those, that would help cut down on some of these backlogs we have. I'm an admin so feel free to tell me if you want it history merged instead. Thanks! -- Ricky81682 (talk) 03:40, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
