What to do with avocadosEdit

1 c toasted pine nuts, 2 bunches of basil, 1/2 c olive oil, 3-4 garlic cloves peeled, 2-3 avocados, lime juice to make it the right consistency, salt/pepper to taste. Throw it all in a processor and blend it. Really, simple and yummy over noodles, rice, quinoa, etc. SusunW (talk) 21:18, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, that sounds amazing!–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:21, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
It's really yummy. Happy accident. I like cream pesto. Didn't have cream, but as I live in Mexico, I have tons of avocados. They are creamy. Brain said...add lime, it'll be good :) SusunW (talk) 21:28, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
What fun! I have thought from time to time about living in Mexico. I love Puerto Vallarta and the area south of Puerto Vallarta (Mismaloya, etc.)... and a small town called El Tuito. Over the years, PV has become my "go to" vacation spot.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:34, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
I'm way far south. Mérida, Yucatán. We love it here. SusunW (talk) 21:41, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
It looks like there is some amazing architecture. For some reason, some of it reminds me a bit of Oaxaca. I am glad you are happy there!–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:48, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
I don't have basil leaves so I just made a simple guacamole and limeade and will let you know how the pesto goes when I have all the stuff.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:55, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

For your help reviewing Willa Brown for GA status - that was my first time going through the GA process, and you made it really straightforward and had a lot of good feedback. Thank you so much! creffett (talk) 12:36, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the barnstar, Creffett, that was really nice of you! It was my pleasure. I really enjoyed the article on Willa Brown.–CaroleHenson (talk) 17:06, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

Your review of Downtown Ossining Historic District was not only very constructive but the most enjoyable GAN experience I've ever had! Daniel Case (talk) 06:21, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Daniel Case, I really enjoyed working on the GAR for Downtown Ossining Historic District, too! It felt like a bit of a let down when it was over. You are a fun and interesting person.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:12, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
If you would like me to review Albert Seedman, I would be happy to do that.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:22, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
I would be delighted, but I'd ask you to hold off, as December 2013 Spuyten Duyvil derailment is still under review, and other people (I think the biggest indicator that an article you developed is a prime GA candidate is when someone else nominates it for GA) have nominated West Kill, Esopus Creek and Valhalla train crash, all of which I've done most of the work on, and I'd like to be able to print them out, copyedit and proof them before someone else gets around to reviewing them. Plus I'd like to be able to do a review of my own as payforward for this one making it. Daniel Case (talk) 16:52, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
Okay. Sounds good. Good luck with the articles!–CaroleHenson (talk) 18:09, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

BTW, I was finally able to check the NRHP nom again and perhaps the reason I gave those two churches the same address is that it gives First Baptist's as "Highland Avenue at Church Street", i.e. without a number. So it's really not a problem. Daniel Case (talk) 00:36, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Ahhh, gotcha. That makes sense. Thanks for checking.–CaroleHenson (talk) 03:01, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

The Boiling Barnstar!Edit

 
There's no dodgy porridge in this cauldron! Thanks very much for the great review Carole, I really enjoyed it 😀 ——SN54129 09:29, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
What fun, Serial Number 54129! Thanks for the poisonless cauldron. I like my porridge straight! I enjoyed the review, too. You were great to work with. Thanks for the barnstar, that was really nice of you.
By the way, what do you think about the draft for theories? I wasn't going to move it over unless you think it's an improvement.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:51, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Yep, treat porridge like whiskey! I think the draft's great, did you remove any material or just shift stuff around? It looks and reads easier now I think. ——SN54129 17:17, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Serial Number 54129, I just shifted stuff around. Cool, if you like it, I will copy it over.–CaroleHenson (talk) 17:21, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

An astronomical clock!Edit

  An astronomical clock!
For being an astronomically good reviewer. Sometimes having one's work on Wikipedia put under scrutiny can be excruciating. Having you as a reviewer was however a pure joy. Yakikaki (talk) 20:25, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks so much, Yakikaki. Having seen the video of the clock, I am imagining the people parade. Which adds to the visual in my mind of the Transformers church. I really enjoyed the review, too. And, I look forward to working on Fin (legend). This was very nice of you.–CaroleHenson (talk) 20:35, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Linda FinchEdit

I was really impressed with your edits on St. Edward's Catholic Church, so I am going to run this idea by you. I have made my own running GAN list of previous Did You Know articles that I created awhile back and am working on upgrading to Good Article standards. Linda Finch is an article I have been working on lately to raise to Good Article standards. At the present I am working on another GA nomination review to make the necessary corrections. After it becomes a Good Article THEN I plan on going back to improving and upgrading Linda Finch. The 2008 DYK was ... that Linda Finch is the first person to complete Amelia Earhart's unfinished final flight using the same aircraft type, a Lockheed L-10 Electra? If she looks interesting to you AND you have free time can you take a look at the article. If you get tempted and want to do some edits on it then use the {in use} template and I won't edit conflict with you. Only if you have the time and she looks interesting to you. Thanks!--Doug Coldwell (talk) 13:00, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Yes, Doug Coldwell I am very interested in this article. I have been fascinated by Amelia Earhart, other pioneering women pilots, etc. It would be my pleasure. I will work on it today.–CaroleHenson (talk) 15:54, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
Great! Take your time as I am busy on another Good Article nomination and expanding that article, so won't have time to work on her for awhile. Thanking you ahead of time for your great contributions.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 15:59, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
My pleasure.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:03, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Doug Coldwell, I am getting close to done... I am just looking though new sources right now.

I am unable to find sources fo some of the content, which I have moved to Talk:Linda_Finch#Cannot_find_a_source. The 2.2 million children statement regarding education, I can only find in an article by Finch. Do any of these ring a bell for you?–CaroleHenson (talk) 19:53, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

Those do not sound like wording I would use. They sound more like something User:Lkfinch may have used. Just taking a quick glance at the article, it looks like you removed these biased statements. Good!!! Just exactly what I would have done. You are an outstanding editor, so whatever you contribute is fine with me. Whatever you think it should be worded is fine by me. All your edits are automatically approved by me, so you write it anyway you desire. I will not revert. I am very glad you took on this article. When you are done, do you want to submit for Good Article Nomination? I believe if you are the nominator, you then get a GA credit (if I understand this correctly). However it doesn't matter to me who the nominator is. You tell me your feelings on this and what might be best. I know after the outstanding work you did on the article it will pass as a Good Article. I can be the nominator or you can be. What do you say on this? --Doug Coldwell (talk) 20:21, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
Doug Coldwell, I am fine with you nominating the article. You did all the heavy lifting to get it going. I have also seen where there are co-nominators, but I am not sure how that works. I think it should either be you alone or as co-nominators. It's not a big deal to me either way, though.–CaroleHenson (talk) 20:43, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
O.K. I'll nominate it when you are all done. I know there is a long delay until a GA Reviewer comes along, maybe several weeks. FYI, the next article I plan on playing with to upgrade is going to be the article I created on Eugenia Tucker Fitzgerald. Take a look if you have free time. Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 20:50, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
Doug Coldwell, There is still the Good article drive that ends this month, so it might not take as long as you think until a reviewer is found. And, I don't skate though GA reviews, we all have our own editing style and set of guidelines that we find more important than others. (Which is good, the more that my articles are reviewed, the more well-rounded I think I become as an editor.)–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:00, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
You have become an outstanding editor = one of the best! Just let me know when you are done with Linda Finch and I will GAN. Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 21:05, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
By the way, I am really enjoying this article!–CaroleHenson (talk) 19:54, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
By the way, here are the contributions of User:Lkfinch. --Doug Coldwell (talk) 20:37, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I wondered if she or a family member made comments. I posted a WP:COI-type message on the user's talk page.–CaroleHenson (talk) 20:48, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Talk about the South Pacific - here is my latest article I created, which happens to be a pending Did You Know. It turns out that 97% of all the articles I have created over the last 14 years have become a Did You Know article (~500).--Doug Coldwell (talk) 21:42, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
  • I looked at your two articles yesterday, Doug Coldwell. Both are interesting. I was wondering if there had been any reports of COVID transmission on the longest flight.
That's interesting and cool - no known COVID cases. I bet part of is that they are not stopping and taking on new customers along the way. Agreed, I would only fly if I had to for some reason. I am doing what I can to stay safe, too.–CaroleHenson (talk) 18:08, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Excellent, Doug Coldwell! I am finishing up the Linda Finch article and then I will take a look at both articles you have mentioned. I keep finding just a bit more info to add. Love your 97% factoid! Cool!–CaroleHenson (talk) 22:04, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
I nominated her for Good Article. It looks ready to me and whatever the Reviewer may come across, I believe I can fix it easy.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 18:02, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Editor's Barnstar
Great job in improvements to Linda Finch. Doug Coldwell (talk) 11:52, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Doug Coldwell! That was nice of you! I enjoyed it, it's a great article. And, thanks for adding the sentence about her lawsuits.–CaroleHenson (talk) 17:09, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

Eugenia Tucker FitzgeraldEdit

  • And, I wondered what was the nature of the secret society in Fitzgerald's article. Good job with both articles!–CaroleHenson (talk) 17:14, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Don't know what the nature of the secret society was or why they started it in "secret". As you can see I use Newspapers.com for news clip references = do you?--Doug Coldwell (talk) 18:02, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
  • I added to article -It was founded for mutual improvement and enjoyment of a group of young women pioneers in college sororities on May 15, 1851. AND Its purpose was a desire "to better one another morally, mentally, and socially."--Doug Coldwell (talk) 19:39, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
of which an additional reference about it is here in this newspaper clip
by an unknown artist at Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia. Don't know for sure if this is a possibility for a Fair Use picture, do you?--Doug Coldwell (talk) 19:39, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Hi, Doug Coldwell. Yes, I do use newspapers.com - love it - especially for historical articles! The purpose of the society is interesting. Thanks for the info!
All my references now-a-days have to be online (Google books, Newspapers.com, etc), where as before I used actual hard copy books from the library. Using the ILL system of Michigan, here are examples of books I used in the past for articles I created. But since all libraries are closed, who knows when we will see books again.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 21:14, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
I cannot think of a reason why the image could not be used as a {{non-free fair use rationale}} image.–CaroleHenson (talk) 20:32, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll put it into the article tomorrow - after I get a little sleep. I will need a little brain power for that, so after a nights sleep I should recover some of my RAM back.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 20:46, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Good luck with the RAM restoration - and then uploading the image. I am assuming that you know that it must be loaded up to Wikipedia and be less than 100k in size.
The image looks good in the article. Thanks for help on this.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 10:38, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
I know a bit about where you are at. I lived about 45 minutes north of your library for a big chunk of my life.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:37, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Then you know all about Michigan eLibrary and MeL books.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 10:38, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
I don't know about the eLibrary, but I know a lot about the Ann Arbor area, such a great place!–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:14, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
  • I am going to nominate her for Good Article soon. Can you take a look at the lead and see if the wording sounds correct to you. Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 14:00, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
Sure.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:14, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi Carole. Hope that you're keeping well amid the current lockdown. Just to let you know that I have finally got around to making certain changes based on your additional GAN comments.

I think strongly that an exception should be made for these categories. Lists would be useful, but in a different way.

deisenbe (talk) 11:17, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

I am sorry, Deisenbe, but I agree that the categories should be removed. I also think that this list is better suited as a separate page or a list within the biography for Robert Harpur (split into columns / shorten by piping the city name, without "New York", for each article.)
It would also be good to have more a bit more background about the naming of the towns in Robert Harpur's article.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:13, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

An article whose organization needs attentionEdit

Misinformation related to the COVID-19 pandemic - a very important article. I've done some work on it, as you'll see. deisenbe (talk) 20:57, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello CaroleHenson,

Your help can make a difference

NPP Sorting can be a great way to find pages needing new page patrolling that match your strengths and interests. Using ORES, it divides articles into topics such as Literature or Chemistry and on Geography. Take a look and see if you can find time to patrol a couple pages a day. With over 10,000 pages in the queue, the highest it's been since ACPERM, your help could really make a difference.

Google Adds New Languages to Google Translate

In late February, Google added 5 new languages to Google Translate: Kinyarwanda, Odia (Oriya), Tatar, Turkmen and Uyghur. This expands our ability to find and evaluate sources in those languages.

Discussions and Resources
  • A discussion on handling new article creation by paid editors is ongoing at the Village Pump.
  • Also at the Village Pump is a discussion about limiting participation at Articles for Deletion discussion.
  • A proposed new speedy deletion criteria for certain kinds of redirects ended with no consensus.
  • Also ending with no change was a proposal to change how we handle certain kinds of vector images.

Question for youEdit

Hi, Carole! I just posted this question and was wondering if maybe you had the answer? I've collaborated with BD2412 on a couple of articles, and in light of his excellent writing skills, was surprised to learn that during his 15 years on WP with over 1.5 million edits and over 5,000 articles, he doesn't have one GA promotion to his credit. I would consider it an honor to be able to co-nom Robert H. Boyle with him and help make it his first GA promotion. The GAN template doesn't allow for a co-nom so if being the nom is required to be credited with the promotion, then I'd rather his name be on the GAN. I welcome your feedback. Atsme Talk 📧 20:46, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Oh, I'm fine, though. You deserve it more than I. BD2412 T 20:58, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

Please check my new articleEdit

Hello Carole, you were once so nice as to encourage me to keep on writing. Meanwhile I took a huge break and made chess (again) my favourite hobby. Well, now that because of Corona there are no chess tournaments anymore I eventually remembered how much fun I was having writing Wiki articles. Moreover I came across a French article on a French company that might literally save the world, or at at least the oceans... which is probably almost the same in the long run. Here's the link to my article, still being in the sandbox: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:NordhornerII/sandbox Hopefully you like the article and its topic.
