RE COI Disclosure on Campaign Legal Center's Page

@Whisperjanes: Thank you for your pointer on disclosing COI for the Campaign Legal Center page! I am new to the Wikipedia community, and I am still learning a lot about the various forms and rules. My user page now says, "This user, in accordance with the Wikimedia Foundation's Terms of Use, discloses that they have been paid by CAMPAIGN LEGAL CENTER for their contributions to Wikipedia."

@Frida Fresca: You're welcome! It can be really tricky to learn the different policies and things to do when you're new to editing Wikipedia, so no one expects perfection from new editors. So far, you've been following the COI/paid guidelines pretty well, so thanks for taking the extra time to do all of that. And feel free to ask questions if you need any help :) - Whisperjanes (talk) 22:08, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Ways to improve Jane Breskin Zalben

Hello, Whisperjanes,

Thank you for creating Jane Breskin Zalben.

I have tagged the page as having some issues to fix, as a part of our page curation process and note that:

Thank you for adding this article to Wikipedia. The references should be moved to the main part of the article. Will do one of them as an example.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, leave a comment here and begin it with {{Re|Whoisjohngalt}}. Remember to sign your reply with ~~~~. For broader editing help, please visit the Teahouse.

Delivered via the Page Curation tool, on behalf of the reviewer.

Whoisjohngalt (talk) 16:57, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Hi Whoisjohngalt! Thanks for adding some categories and your help. I'm a bit confused by your suggestion, however, so I ask that you please check out WP:LDRHOW or WP:LDR.
Just to clarify: my citations are still there, just with named references being used instead, and the full references being moved to the bottom. If you look at the article (not in edit view), you'll see that the citations are still formatted normally. I tend to do this with articles I start because it's cleaner when editing the article later. Could you please revert your last two edits on the article, or let me know what you think? Thanks! - Whisperjanes (talk) 17:12, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I was not familiar to the citation style. All fixed now. Peace.Whoisjohngalt (talk) 17:26, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
@Whoisjohngalt: No worries! And thanks :) I wasn't familiar before either - I only started using it because another user suggested it to me to improve my articles, because they said it made the body of the article look cleaner. - Whisperjanes (talk) 18:02, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Regarding the Ryan Kavanaugh article

Hello, I've struck a lot of promotional/unsourced info from the article, improved the sourcing, and added maintenance tags. Some wording might still be improved to reflect a more neutral POV. Do you think it's appropriate to remove the {{Undisclosed paid}} tag now? Throast (talk | contribs) 15:35, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

@Throast: If you'd like to, feel free! And thanks for your edits.
Personally, I'd wait until some others are able to edit for more NPOV in the article, and give it a bit more time (for example, it seems like one editor is removing and adjusting more content at the moment), but it's completely up to you. Thanks, by the way, for reporting at ANI and sockpuppet investigations. I was just typing something out there myself :) - Whisperjanes (talk) 18:19, 23 November 2021 (UTC)
I actually agree that it's a good idea to leave it there a bit longer. At least until the situation with the COI editor has cooled down. Throast (talk | contribs) 18:24, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

Happy Winter Solstice!!!

Slate recently ran a substantial artixle om the football player in While Thousands Cheer who was one of the first to integrate the NFL. Thanks so much for all your help! I hope all is well with you, bright, and warm. All the best. FloridaArmy (talk) 23:25, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words, FloridaArmy :) I hope the winter is treating you well so far. I see you're active as ever with making articles, so thank you for all the work you've put in this year! I hope you're able to get some rest in the winter months (even if that rest still means taking time for the not-so-restful hobby of Wikipedia editing). And happy belated winter solstice to you too! - Whisperjanes (talk) 20:03, 23 December 2021 (UTC)

DYK for Ethelyn Gibson

Updated DYK query.svg

On 12 January 2022, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Ethelyn Gibson, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that actress Ethelyn Gibson was the first person to star in and produce a serial film that had sound? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Ethelyn Gibson. You are welcome to check how many pageviews the nominated article or articles got while on the front page (here's how, Ethelyn Gibson), and if they received a combined total of at least 416.7 views per hour (i.e., 5,000 views in 12 hours or 10,000 in 24), the hook may be added to the statistics page. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
