Request for interview

Hello there!

My name is AVardhana (WMF) (talk) 19:17, 3 March 2021 (UTC), and I recently joined The Wikipedia Library team to help with design work. I noticed you've been very generous with your input to our team so I thought I would reach out! I'm writing to invite you to participate in an interview study that I'm currently conducting.

This would involve us meeting via Google meets where I will ask you a few questions and then have you test a prototype with me. For the interview, I'd be recording your screen as well as audio. The purpose of the study is to get a better understanding of who is using The Wikipedia Library for the purposes of making the right improvements!

If you're interested, please email me at avardhana@wikimedia.org, and I'll send a copy of the privacy statement to you. If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them.

Thank you, Aishwarya

@AVardhana (WMF): Send it to me. Glad to help if I can. deisenbe (talk) 20:47, 3 March 2021 (UTC)
@Deisenbe: Wonderful! Thank you. Would you mind emailing me at avardhana@wikimedia.org so I can send you the privacy form and we can coordinate a time? Thanks! AVardhana (WMF) (talk) 16:22, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Request for assistance at es-wiki

Hello Deisenbe. I got your name from the Wikipedia:Local Embassy where you are listed as someone familiar with the Spanish language. I was wondering if I could enlist your assistance with

Two new accounts (Marianasegura and VHHerver) have been coordinating edits regarding a business called Jüsto, both here and on Spanish Wikipedia. The first is undoubtedly an undisclosed WP:PAID editor; I'm sure the second is either a WP:SOCK or WP:MEAT account.

Here at en-wiki, the first account has posted promotional content about this company in their sandbox. The second account has created a nearly identical sandbox and also a draft article about this company. At es-wiki, the first account posted similar article-like content, in English, on their userpage (es:Usuario:Marianasegura). The second account created a mainspace article es:Jüsto, which appears to be now nominated for deletion.

Here, I left ((uw-agf-sock)) messages for both users (which the first user has subsequently deleted). I'm not sure if a similar template exists on es-wiki. I also noticed that there is a page there to request a Checkuser (es:Wikipedia:Solicitudes de verificación de usuarios), but I don't know if it's justified to do that just yet. Perhaps you could post a request there, or something else if you know a better protocol to follow?

Thanks in advance! --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 05:53, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Update: After discovering a third involved account, I decided to file this report: Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/RicardoW10. I'll let you know the outcome of the investigation and see if I still require your assistance then. Thanks. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 06:22, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I am not familiar with the administrative side of es-wiki. deisenbe (talk) 09:42, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
No problem. I'll ask around for some help there. Thanks. --Drm310 🍁 (talk) 13:55, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Undefined reference

Hi Deisenbe, in your recent edits to John Brown (abolitionist) you cited the undefined reference "Meyer", creating a ref error. Could you please edit the article to clarify what reference was intended? Thanks! —Mx. Granger (talk · contribs) 13:17, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

@Mx. Granger: Fixed, also found it missing in Virginia v. John Brown. Sorry you had to write and thanks for checking. deisenbe (talk) 14:03, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
Hmm, it doesn't seem to be fixed in John Brown (abolitionist). Did you forget to save, maybe? —Mx. Granger (talk · contribs) 15:48, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

History of slavery in Virginia

Hi! I have added Negro cloth in the clothing section of the subject, you are improving. Thanks and regards RV (talk) 14:18, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

May 2021

Hello, I'm CaroleHenson. I noticed that you added or changed content in an article, History of slavery in Virginia, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so. You can have a look at the tutorial on citing sources. If you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. I have asked three times if you had sources for content that you're looking to add. And, after you made a series of edits, I asked please not to insert your own thoughts in the midst of well-cited content.CaroleHenson (talk) 02:34, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

@CaroleHenson: I'm going to work on other articles. I don't need insulting messages like this. deisenbe (talk) 10:27, 15 May 2021 (UTC)


That's a shame.
All you need to do is not add new unsourced content within cited content in the body of the article. That does two things, it confuses what actually came from the cited source - and there's no record of where it came from.
I am not understanding the two paragraphs commented out, but I'll make a couple of comments since you did not remove it (i.e., it seems that you wanted me to see it): The paragraph without citations went into the introduction. If it summarizes cited content in the body of the article, sources are not needed WP:CITELEAD.
The part about Blacks worshipping in secret in the woods: I have heard that for awhile, but most importantly, it is summarized there is cited content in the section about religion... my experiences are that they became known from slave narratives and in biographies or narratives of freed men who became ministers. (See these articles) About the music, that's one of the most interesting section for me. It's been known for some time that African American musical traditions started during the colonial period and enslavement. (See this). I hope this helps make it clearer.–CaroleHenson (talk) 15:13, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
Clarified - cited content.–CaroleHenson (talk) 16:07, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
I did not intend for you to see it. That's why it was commented. What "unsourced content within cited content" are you referring to? deisenbe (talk) 22:52, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
First of all, thanks so much for your feedback about the article. It really helped make the article better - especially the content about Native Americans and Western Virginia. Such great points. I think I am finished with your comments unless I have missed something.
Regarding your question, see this post to the talk page.–CaroleHenson (talk) 02:52, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

I just realized that if you could ask yourself when you are rewording something: Am I changing the meaning of the content?

If so, then you need to find a source - or not edit in such a way that the meaning is changed. As an FYI, citations are not needed in the intro if the verbiage summarizes cited content from the body of the article. If you are adding new content, then it needs to be cited.

I didn't post 2nd warning about adding uncited content this time, because I truly hope we can work this out. I know that you have incredibly great intentions and want to make the article the best you can. Adding uncited content, though, does not make the article better.–CaroleHenson (talk) 01:20, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Please do not use styles that are nonstandard, unusual, inappropriate or difficult to understand in articles. There is a Manual of Style, and edits should not deliberately go against it without special reason. Thank you. 2600:8800:1880:68:5604:A6FF:FE38:4B26 (talk) 12:42, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

A Barnstar for you!

The Epic Barnstar
I have just come across Raising the Flag at Fort Sumter, a fantastic little article that might have been even further lost to history had you not written about it! I had no idea such an event ever occurred and was quite interested to read about it. Your work on the Civil War is beyond excellent :) CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 02:43, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

Question for administrator

The article Battle of Fort Pillow has such continual and one-sided disruptive modification, mostly deletions, that I'd suggest unregistered users be blocked from editing it. deisenbe (talk) 06:33, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

You may request page protection at WP:RFPP. 331dot (talk) 08:40, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Question for administrator

@331dot: I have detected a significant instance of vandalism that went undetected for six months. How should I notify those that might be interested? It's at the end of Talk:Battle of Fort Pillow. This article has the designation of "vital". deisenbe (talk) 09:07, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

While after six months there is little point in action against the account or IP responsible, you may bring it up on the article talk page or just remove it. 331dot (talk) 09:14, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
