Cora Sue CollinsEdit

Hi. Can someone give some care and love to Cora Sue Collins please?

Sexual slavery in IslamEdit

I would be grateful if some people with subject knowledge could assess the sweeping edits currently being done to that article. I'm getting the impression that this is the wholesale replacement of one interpretation with another, based on very selective sources, but I simply don't know the subject area. In any case I suspect these big deletes/replacements need some talk page discussion before being implemented. - Also notified WikiProject Islam. --Elmidae (talk · contribs)

Survey about History on WikipediaEdit

I am Petros Apostolopoulos, a Ph.D. candidate in Public History at North Carolina State University. My Ph.D. project examines how historical knowledge is produced on Wikipedia. If you are interested in participating in my research study by offering your own experience of writing about history on Wikipedia, you can click on this link https://ncsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9z4wmR1cIp0qBH8. There are minimal risks involved in this research.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Petros Apostolopoulos, paposto@ncsu.edu Apolo1991 (talk) 15:01, 13 December 2021 (UTC)

Captain Thuridur pageEdit

This is great to have this page, but, while citing my work, it contains several errors. I cannot figure out how to send a message to the writer. If they could please email me, I will tell them the errors so they can correct it. Thank you. Margaret WillsonCascadepass2021 (talk) 17:43, 29 December 2021 (UTC)

@Cascadepass2021: Hi, I will make general comments about how to approach this here, but any specific comments should go on the talk page, Talk:Foreman Thuridur, for the Foreman Thuridur article.
  • To get a specific editor's or editors' attention, use the {{ping}} template. For instance, to get my attention, you would place {{ping|Peaceray}} on a talk page. Someone wanting to get both your and my attention would place {{ping|Cascadepass2021|Peaceray}}.
  • As an author, presumably of Seawomen of Iceland: Survival on the Edge, you would be wise to declare a conflict of interest (COI) about your work. This is a pro forma statement that will proactively help address any conflict of interest problems. There are two steps to this.
  • Once you have done this, I believe that you would be generally okay to make edits that cite material other than your book.
  • If you have changes that concern the material in your book, you should use the {{request edit}} on the talk page to avoid any COI problems.
I hope this helps. I will ping the concerned editor(s) at Talk:Foreman Thuridur. Peaceray (talk) 20:43, 29 December 2021 (UTC)
