Signups open for The Core Contest

edit

The Core Contest—Wikipedia's most exciting contest—will take place this year from April 15 to May 31. The goal: to improve vital or other core articles, with a focus on those in the worst state of disrepair. Editing can be done individually, but in the past groups have also successfully competed. There is £300 of prize money divided among editors who provide the "best additive encyclopedic value". Signups are open now. Cheers from the judges, Femke, Casliber, Aza24.

If you wish to start or stop receiving news about The Core Contest, please add or remove yourself from the delivery list.

Where in the article to put citations for archival material by the subject

edit

I came across archival material written by the subject of the Renée Vivien article. I want to include in the article, but am unsure whether to put it under another subsection under Works or in the Further reading section. I am curious how others have handled this & what examples exist.

Here is the citation I plan to use.

  • Vivien, Renée. "3 carnets [3 notebooks]" (b. 1901) [PDF]. Gallica, ID: NAF 26579-26581. Paris: Département des Manuscrits, Bibliothèque nationale de France.

Seeking to improve buZ blurr

edit

Hey folks, since writing BuZ blurr I've made some edits to it and am wondering what else could be improved in order to make it a B-class or Good Article.

One thing I know is missing is more media, though it's near impossible to find copyright-free material of his. Anything else that is missing or could be improved? Sonovawolf (talk) 04:18, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Orlando Figes article

edit

There is a content dispute on Talk:Orlando Figes that could use the input of people who know BLP policy! The Orlando Figes#Amazon reviews controversy of 2010 is the subject, with one side preferring to excise it or at least minimise its coverage, and the other thinking that it is relevant content requiring full coverage. There are quite a few policy-based claims that have been made including some that regular BLP-ers might have more insight on like Wikipedia:Who is a low-profile individual.

For extra fun, the subject of the article (Orlando Figes) is also participating! So you can wiki-meet a famous academic if you come along. Samuelshraga (talk) 05:13, 20 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Cleaning up biographical article for Geoffrey von Maltzahn

edit

Hi, I'm Lindy from the Flagship Pioneering communications team, and I've started to look into cleaning up the biography for one of the firm's partners, Geoffrey von Maltzahn. As my User page explains, I have a financial conflict of interest with his Wikipedia article, so I am making requests for editors to review. To begin bringing the page back to Wikipedia standards, removing anything promotional, I've made an initial request for removal of the Awards section. As editors here are familiar with biographies and the standards for them, I hope someone can look at this request and also potentially offer other suggestions for cleanup.

POV/length check for NZ historian

edit

The article Erik Olssen has gotten significant contributions from someone who has been in contact with the author and seems to be a big fan. A lot of material has been trimmed, but I'm not sure the remaining material reads neutrally or doesn't have some excess detail. I've read it too many times, and was wondering if anyone with more familiarity with how biographies are supposed to read would be willing to skim it and point out any glaring problems. Thanks! -- Beland (talk) 22:50, 21 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Awards section - table, prose, or list?

edit

The list of awards at Andrew Michael Hurley#Awards is a table. Looking at other articles on authors, almost all I found had the awards as a prose section or a bulleted list, the exception being a table created by the same editor as this one, at Damon Galgut#Awards and honours. A table seems unnecessarily complex. Any thoughts? I have queried the table at Talk:Andrew Michael Hurley#Awards: table or list?, and would welcome input from others.

Please review my article about William Jay Schieffelin

edit

Hello members of WikiProject Biography,

I would like to get your opinion on how best to structure my article about William Jay Schieffelin.

In my opinion, the article is unconventionally, but appropriately structured. Therefore, I like the article and would prefer to leave it as it is.

But I am also open to your suggestions for improvement and could change the article.

So, check out my article!

Thanks, and best regards, Michael MichaelScheufele (talk) 10:21, 3 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
