Copying within Wikipedia requires attributionEdit

  Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Washington Crossing the Delaware into Washington Crossing the Delaware (1851 painting). While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was copied, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 15:09, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Thursday April 4 and Friday April 5: Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College

Translat-a-thon NYC 2019 @ LaGuardia Community College is hosting the second annual Wikipedia Translatathon! At this event on Thursday evening and during the day Friday this week, anyone from the public is invited to LaGuardia to join students, professors, and CUNY faculty in translating Wikipedia articles among any languages which attendees understand. Themes for this event include public health and the history of New York City.

New York City has a large immigrant population and great diversity of speakers of various languages. Among all schools in New York City, LaGuardia has the highest percentage of immigrant students, the highest percentage of students who speak a language other than English as their first language, and the greatest representation of language diversity. It is a strength of LaGuardia that it can present "Wikipedia translatathons", which are Wikipedia translation events.

OverlinkingEdit

Please do not link random English words, as you did in Aquaman (film). This is known as overlinking, and it makes figuring out which links are actually useful rather difficult.

April blitz blingEdit

  The Barnstar of Diligence
This barnstar is awarded to A21sauce for copy edits totaling over 30,000 words (including rollover words) during the GOCE April 2019 Copy Editing Blitz. Congratulations, and thank you for your contributions! Tdslk (talk) 02:07, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

GOCE FeedbackEdit

Hi A21sauce; you asked for some guidance to help improve your copy-editing. Thank your for showing a willingness to do this; it shows you care about the quality of your edits. Firstly, I recommend reading some of the advice linked from the page here; the Guild's how-to page is a good place to start.

When you asked about reviewing other editors' work, I didn't recognise your user name so I checked some of your work during the Guild's April Copy-editing Blitz; amongst these:

  • Although you made some good edits at Aquaman; your edits were reverted because they introduced far too many wikilinks into the article. We don't normally link common terms; most readers will understand words like 'critics', 'visual effects', 'pirates' and 'lava'; see MOS:LINK. Here is the reversion.
You also changed

The film was being developed on dual tracks, meaning that one script was being written by Beall and one by Johnstad, but only the better version would move forward.

to:

On dual tracks, this meant that one script was being written by Beall and one by Johnstad, but only the better version would move forward.

  • In Raunch aesthetics, you changed

    They believed that there was a strong link between power structure and dominance within pornography. It wasn't until the 1990s and 2000s that women started to really become pro-sex and embrace sexuality.

    to

It is because believed that there was a strong link between power structures and male dominance in pornography. It wasn't until the 1990s and 2000s that pro-sex women who embraced sexuality became more predominant..

This is a poor edit in two ways:

    • It is because believed that... makes no sense, and It wasn't until the 1990s and 2000s that women started to really become pro-sex and embrace sexuality. doesn't mean the same thing as It wasn't until the 1990s and 2000s that pro-sex women who embraced sexuality became more predominant.
    • You also could have changed "wasn't" to "was not", per WP:MOS.
  • In Villain, you wikilinked common words like 'motivation', 'catalyst', 'instinct' and 'English actor'. You also introduced a couple of typos ('readers of viewers' and 'Other have pointed out'), and missed several chances to improve the text.

You've also made lots of helpful changes to the articles, and the point of Blitzes is to improve articles, not to make them 'perfect'. I think you need to slow down and take your time to read and understand what the article is telling you before making changes. Check references if you're not sure what the text means (I do this quite often and it's often enlightening!); if you're working on a page from the Requests page, it's often helpful to ask the requester what the text means.

My concern about reviewing was that if you hadn't realised you made the above mistakes, you wouldn't have spotted them in copy-edits you were reviewing. I see you've been around WP for over ten years and I hope you don't think I'm pulling you down; nobody is perfect—I still make silly typos for time to time. Please continue copy-editing at the Guild; there are plenty of experienced editors who will be happy to give advice and help you out. Once you've worked on a few drives and blitzes, you'll feel more confident and if you still want to do some reviewing, please ask again; reviewers are always in short supply!

Best regards, Baffle☿gab 00:28, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

3O DeclineEdit

Please note that I have declined your filing at WP:3O. As stated on that page, for a third opinion to be offered there must be a discussion at the article's Talk page. You are welcome to re-file after a thorough discussion has occurred if a third opinion is still needed. Alternately, please consider other forms of dispute resolution. Cheers. DonIago (talk) 20:20, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Cynthia Bailey copyeditEdit

Aoba47 is an experienced editor, and you are new to copyediting. This was uncalled-for; we put the same amount of effort into a copyedit, whether or not it's part of a drive or blitz. Please take constructive criticism on board. All the best, Miniapolis 13:41, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

I agree with Miniapolis. In this edit, for example, duplicate links were added, which contradicts the MOS:DUPLINK guideline. In this edit, citations supporting specific claims in a BLP were removed; it is a common practice in BLPs to source individual statements immediately after each statement, which helps with maintenance if information is added, removed, or reorganized. I recommend that you read the guideline linked above; it has some subtlety to it, so it is worth returning to periodically. Also please read MOS:OVERLINK; your edits linked common English words like "volunteer" and "divorce" used in their normal contexts, which is contrary to that guideline.
I also recommend reading the second sentence at WP:PERSONAL: "Comment on content, not on the contributor." Addressing a fellow editor as "dude" may be interpreted as disrespectful communication, especially if that editor is female. Maybe "dude" is an acceptable form of address toward people of all genders in your local culture, but Wikipedia is a global community, where words may be interpreted differently by people who come from cultures that are different from yours. I have found that it is best to adopt a neutral, albeit sometimes boring, tone when commenting on editors' contributions, and to avoid addressing other editors in the second person (i.e. "you", "dude", "sir", etc.) when making comments that are critical of that editor's contributions.
To be clear, I have made all of the mistakes that you have made in the edits above and in your recent conflict with multiple editors. We all started somewhere. The key things, in my view, are to learn, and grow, and become a positive contributor to the Wikipedia community. We are here to support you if you are willing to do those things. Respectfully, – Jonesey95 (talk) 20:23, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Akiko Ichikawa (disambiguation)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 Akiko Ichikawa (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G14 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates only one extant Wikipedia page and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic);
  • disambiguates zero extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title; or
  • is a redirect with a title ending in "(disambiguation)" that does not target a disambiguation page or page that has a disambiguation-like function.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

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 deleted 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. Mcampany (talk) 01:29, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Hi! We usually only create disambiguation pages once multiple people with the same name have wikipedia pages. Once you've created other pages about women named Akiko Ichikawa, please feel free to recreate this page. For now it's a little too early. Thanks! Mcampany (talk) 01:31, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Crystallizedcarbon and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I've started a discussion about whether an article that you created, Akiko Ichikawa (fashion consultant), should be deleted. Your comments are welcome at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Akiko Ichikawa (fashion consultant).

Speedy deletion nomination of Akiko Ichikawa (disambiguation)Edit

Completely valid criticism: I feel like I've been spending my time batting away the skeptics of the second page, the Japanese woman. I feel like those editors would also use similar arguments about these other women because there's even less documentation about them but they *are* university-level scholars! I'm dealing with the COVID19 pandemic at the moment in my city, but I'll try to iron this out soon. Great escapism.~ ~ ~ ~ A21sauce (talk) 19:04, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Akiko Ichikawa (disambiguation)Edit

Hello A21sauce,

Welcome to Wikipedia! I edit here too, under the username Crystallizedcarbon and it's nice to meet you :-)

I wanted to let you know that I have tagged an article that you started, Akiko Ichikawa (disambiguation) for deletion, because it is unnecessary and disambiguates only a single page.

If you feel that the page shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top. If the page is already deleted by the time you come across this message and you wish to retrieve the deleted material, please contact the deleting administrator.

For any further query, please leave a comment here and prepend it with {{Re|Crystallizedcarbon}}. And, don't forget to sign your reply with ~~~~ . Thanks!

Louis DeJoyEdit

"Thanks, but that's your subjective call. I took it off his wife's article. Perhaps it's in keeping with the idea that men should have less responsibility towards their kids than women?"

Umm, wut? I'm not sure if you are accusing me of sexism or Wikipedia generally. The policy is that non-notable's names are private unless relevant. "The presumption in favor of privacy is strong". It's not for me or anyone else to make the call that they aren't relevant, that is the assumption, so it's for you to make a strong case and achieve consensus that they are - and to do so before adding (or re-adding) the names. Rather than add their names to this article they should have been removed from the wife's. I have done that now.

Incidentally, I'd rather not go to war with you over mole hills, I appreciate your contributions to the article generally and have just addressed some minor points of contention in the wider interest. Please don't take it personally and knee-jerk revert if tweaks are needed? Keep up the good work! Cheers! Captainllama (talk) 10:00, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Aggro. Get off my talk page.--A21sauce (talk) 10:46, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
Seriously? I was disappointed by your reverts and believed you to be mistaken but didn't wish to be thought argumentative so I came here to explain more fully and to say I actually appreciate the work you're doing - and you respond with this crap?? Jeez, get over yourself! Captainllama (talk) 18:58, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 3Edit

Speedy deletion nomination of National Black Women's Reproductive Justice AgendaEdit

 

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 National Black Women's Reproductive Justice Agenda, requesting that it be deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which pages can be deleted at any time, without discussion. If the page meets any of these strictly-defined criteria, then it may soon be deleted by an administrator. The reasons it has been tagged are:

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

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 deleted 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. Themillofkeytone (talk) 21:28, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

I've listed this at Wikipedia:Copyright problems/2020 September 20 for investigation, as not all the text seems to be affected. Are there any other pages where you have copied non-free content from external sources? If so, please list them here so that they too can be cleaned up. This should take precedence over any other projects you may have. Thank you, Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:09, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User:A21sauce/sandboxEdit

 

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 User:A21sauce/sandbox requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be an unambiguous copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-xpm-1986-03-02-0200300260-story.html. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images taken from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to use it for any reason — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. The same holds if you are not the owner but have their permission. If you are not the owner and do not have permission, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for how you may obtain it. You might want to look at Wikipedia's copyright policy for more details, or ask a question here.

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 deleted 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. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:02, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

OK, uh, thanks. Clearly thought it was okay because it was a sandbox. Won't leave even the sandbox like that again.--A21sauce (talk) 12:01, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
