Feedback from Jonsweaver (17 January 2011)

Did you find the instructions clear ? No, I found the documentation on issues like References and Neutrality hard to follow. I am a web developer and worked for software companies-I have experience following documentation. I appreciated the reviewers efforts, but in several attempts was declined without any clear direction. Frankly I felt that it was more subjective than following clear editorial guidelines. Once the article was accepted, it was given a C-grade - when I looked at the C-grade example, there was one reference in the example article. My article has 14 references from newspapers and professional websites. I don't understand the grading system and I don't understand what I can do to improve the article.
How quickly was your submission reviewed ?

The article was quickly declined a few times without effective comments until a senior editor stepped in and told the original reviewer that he/she needed to completely read articles before declining. It's confusing to have work declined by people not following procedures.

Do you have any suggestions to improve the process? Editorial guidelines need to include examples and when an article is declined it would be helpful to offer specific reasons with examples of why it's declined and how it could be improved. Generalities and broad statements are not helpful at all.

Impressively quickly. And the help was very very useful indeed. The editors were extremely well informed and very helpful.

I wonder if there's an easier 'trouble shooting' page that could help first time users? I'm still unsure how to create connections between articles and pages...

Did you find the instructions clear ?
  • Yes. It was very helpful.
How quickly was your submission reviewed ?
  • Within a few days.
Do you have any suggestions to improve the process?
  • Yes. I submitted my article for review through WikiProject Articles for Creation because I am new to this and I wanted to make sure I had followed all of Wikipedia's guidelines for posting, including citing verifiable sources and neutral point of view. When the article was submitted and reviewed, it was found to be acceptable. The article was approved with some edits and was posted to Wikipedia. It was edited a few more times and continued to improve along the way. But then, suddenly, an alert was added to the article that it is not written in neutral point of view. Now, the alert is threatening deletion of the article. My suggestion would be that if the article is approved by the WikiProject Articles for Creation, there should be a way to note that it does in fact meet Wikipedia's guidelines. Thanks for letting me provide feedback.Rkhaarma (talk) 16:54, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Do you have any suggestions to improve the process?

Several of us made revisions to improve the article -- addition of many more references (online and print), stylistic improvements, better, tighter organization showing range of contribution in this bio. We feel that it can now be upgraded from a C rating to a B rating (compared to others in that category); how do we go ahead and get it re-evaluated for upgrade January, 29, 2011 Heisler57 (talk) 06:29, 29 January 2011 (UTC)Heisler57Heisler57 (talk) 06:29, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Feedback from MeredithIraymond (26 February 2011)

Did you find the instructions clear ?
  • I understand that my article needs some work. As this is the first time that I have contributed to Wikipedia, I am finding it a little difficult to understand exactly what I need to do. Although the resources are quite complete, I am in a bit of information overload as well.

For example, my article was listed as a C-Class. I see the grading scheme but am unclear if I need to add additional references, have too much supplemental information or not enough, or if my article is expressing bias or opinion. I took a couple approved sample pages and tried to mirror the flow of content from those. Any direction here would be greatly appreciated.

Secondly, there was a not that as I am a logged in user, I can create articles in another way. I did not understand what that was saying. Clarification would be very helpful.

Thank you for your time.

  • cannot think of any -- I think it is very wise for WK to urge people not to write new articles until gaining adequate experience editing existing articles.

I have some questions as a follow up about how to make the time I can spend on WK most useful. The office in which I worked from 1953--1955 was next door to Macfarlane's, and he spoke to me many times each week. The organizational relationship was informal, and one of my two main activities was assigned and followed closely by him personally. So I was a bit upset to find no article for any member of the "hierarchy" -- Leo Pincherle (my immediate supervisor), George Macfarlane, R.A. Smith, W.J.Richards (the Director who became a Companion of the Order of the Bath) -- who really were notable. I am 82. Likewise, from my days at King's College London, there are several faculty who became FRS without articles, and likewise my wife remembers several of the dons at Girton she thinks merit articles. The tension for us is between cluttering WK with articles that are too flimsy and time running out on us. If it is not anti-social to do articles about as long as what I did today for George Macfarlane, then I will press on with more, and hope I can find some students willing to dig for more using search tools I can advise on. (I don't have any students of my own these days, but I may find a class of article that will find volunteers)

Feedback from Veteranoak (8 March 2011)

Did you find the instructions clear ?

I still can't see how to change the category of the pictures after they have been uploaded.

How quickly was your submission reviewed ?

Taking into account the fact that your reviewers are all volunteers and that they probably have many other papers to work through, I found that they gave me their assessment very quickly.

Do you have any suggestions to improve the process?

Thank you for the comments on my article which I found to be fair and constructive. I am a newcomer to Wikipedia and I have a steep learning curve. I hope to progessively improve the article and to make additions and corrections to the text.

One notable problem that I have is with the title that has been assigned to my contribution. This is 'Stockway North Nature Reserve', but this refers to only one of the items in the article, so it is rather misleading. The title that I gave it on submission was 'The Natural Environment in and around Nailsea' which relates to all of the sections of the article. Is it possible to revert to this title? Is there any way that I, as a user, can do this myself. I would be grateful to have your guidance on this.Veteranoak (talk) 17:30, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

The editing process was very useful experience. You have great reviewers such as (Armbrust) who did a great job in directing me to useful links and supporting me in a professional friendly way. Thanks for this great place, people, and service. (Saharnsaleem (talk) 17:46, 25 March 2011 (UTC))

Feedback from 96.49.140.106 (Wed 26 Oct, 12:36 am)

medi eval = medical evaluation Please consider the special attention that should be featured for "medieval" the concept, bearing the status quo of file edit "shorthand", suddenly reminded that it (the 'word' is actually a file sorting edit that specifies "medical evaluation", with all of the following 'probing the annuls of personal/personnel files maintained. Big changes, small file name size. I guess size, or length, or character enumerate matter(s) very much.

If you care to respond, my e-mail is at (Redacted). I realize that this is a rather large , hefty, left handed lob from the middle of nowhere (which, by the way, changes to 'now here',simply by spacing the word correctly, at the w), so I don't really expect to make too much of a difference initially, but it would be really very much appreciated if you could let me know what your thoughts or reaction is...

  • Quite quickly, however it was always reviewed by the same person. After a while I honestly gave up trying to satisfy this person's standards of perfection.

  • What I don't like is the quickness of people to "speedy delete." I had to be away from another article for a while, left an edit note that I wasn't finished and it was deleted while I was gone. I think there should at least be a day's wait for anyone to recommend deletion. Not all of us have the information at hand to create articles. That ruined Wiki for me.

Feedback from LCSDFW (27 November 2011)

I didn't realize that I wouldn't be able to edit the first section later. I would like to change the wording a little, but is that possible or not? Probably it's a good idea to warn people that that part will not be editable later.

Similar to the image on the right, you should click at the "edit"-link displayed at the top (between Read and History) to get the whole page (including the lead) in the edit-field. mabdul 00:51, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
