Sidney A. MarchandEdit

Hello. Since you're from Louisiana, are you interested in helping me expand Sidney A. Marchand please? Strangely enough, I can't find his obituary on Newspapers.com. It would be good to add a picture, if there is one in the public domain, too. Please ping me or reply on my talkpage. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 22:20, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

I've created two more Marchands who served in the LA House, but I doubt they are related.Zigzig20s (talk) 23:34, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 225 (magazine)Edit

 

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on 225 (magazine) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 03:15, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of 225 (magazine)Edit

 

The article 225 (magazine) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable magazine lacking non-trivial independent support.

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. reddogsix (talk) 03:33, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Donald Trump sexual misconduct allegationsEdit

Nice work on the videos for the Donald Trump articles. I especially like the look of the one in the Donald Trump sexual misconduct allegations, which I'm guessing has a lot to do with the source. It's a really nice multimedia feature!--CaroleHenson (talk) 00:56, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

They're also copyright violations. - Mlpearc (open channel) 01:19, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

November 2016Edit

  Hello, I'm Parsley Man. I wanted to let you know that one or more of your recent contributions to 2016 shootings of Des Moines police officers have been undone because they did not appear constructive. If you would like to experiment, please use the sandbox. If you think a mistake was made, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. Parsley Man (talk) 15:53, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

User:Parsley Man:Sorry about that. I added the reference to the New York Times because I used the phrase "ambush-style" in the lead, which I read in the NYT, but realized that multiple news sources used that phrase also (I guess it came from a press conference). Thanks. WClarke (talk) 19:43, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome. Parsley Man (talk) 22:11, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Miller - TrumpEdit

Hello, You did an exceptional job editing the transition and vocabulary per my initial edit to this song. Considering you have the status enabling you to edit under the current semi protection clause- please update Mac's wiki profile per this particular song that he launched in his career section in 2011. This will enable viewers the accessibility to immediately click the wiki link- as of now the song is only in quotes on his page- it needs a wiki link [[ ]] edit. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1012:B14F:38DE:1B8:C33F:4600:B835 (talk) 23:05, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for contributing; I added the link to his page. Sometimes those protections can be annoying; if you want to edit more, make an account, and after about a day or so you'll be able to edit semi-protected pages. WClarke (talk) 00:38, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Absolutely- Will do. Thank you sir. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1012:B14F:38DE:1B8:C33F:4600:B835 (talk) 01:48, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

RecentismEdit

Your expansion regarding crowd size is the very definition of recentism, which should be avoided at all costs in an article that should be wholly historical, rather than focusing on certain ideas or controversies of the day. Please review WP:Recentism for a more detailed explanation of why the extreme focus you've placed on crowd sizes, a minute detail that takes up a large portion of the article, should not be. Calibrador (talk) 04:26, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Psst! People have been saying, including on our inauguration article, that in the CNN gigapixel photo the crowds do stretch back to the Washington Monument. My disagreement with that is here, but do you think our inauguration comparison pic should have those white buildings that have caused the whole brou-ha-ha? Our current inauguration comparison pic doesn't, this one and this lower-resolution one (found on Reuters.com) do.

Should we replace our current one with one that has the white buildings in them, leave the current one in play, or perhaps use both? And if we should replace, can I push that job onto you? You're the original uploader and when it comes to pics, I'm a walking disaster area. --Kizor 16:01, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

User:Kizor: Thanks for pointing out a more extensive version of the photo; I've uploaded it over the previous file. Thanks. WClarke (talk) 18:52, 23 January 2017 (UTC)

2017 Manchester Arena bombingEdit

An edit you made here undid a lot of others' work. Can you please be more careful, especially in high-traffic articles? --John (talk) 18:23, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
