Wikiproject Color[edit]

Hi MiracleMat, I saw your name on Wikipedia:WikiProject_Color. It seems to have been dormant for a while, even though there was a lot of great work and discussion already done. I'm looking to start it back up again. Care to join me? --Laura S 00:14, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Sure, what would you like to work on? MiracleMat 17:45, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
That's great news! Right now it seems we've picked up right where the others left off; ie, arguing over the technical details of color representation. I'm hoping to get a little other work done on the side (such as bringing the color article to FA) so that we don't get hung up on the details. I've started a to-do list of sorts at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Color/Strategy, so feel free to take a look and make any changes you feel necessary. I'm trying to focus on the whole realm of color-related articles, not just lists of colors. It might be a little on the ambitious side but you won't go very far being overly cautious :) -- Laura S | talk to me 20:39, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
Oh and one other thing, there's a lot of (I think good) discussion on the project's talk page, it would be great if you weigh in - we need all the viewpoints we can get on some of this stuff. -- Laura S | talk to me 02:44, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

I replied on my talk page, to keep the conversation in one place. -- Laura S | talk to me 15:06, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Re your question[edit]

Thanks for the note. As you know, we can only use reliable sources for verification, which generally implies sources that exist in some permanent form (ie a book, newspaper, DVD etc). How did you come by the information from Ralph Guldahl, Jr? If there's a published record of, say, an interview or something, I'd guess that would be ok. You could also try asking at the Reliable sources noticeboard to get a more informed view than mine ;) I hope this helps, EyeSerenetalk 17:29, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I notice you had a GA copyedit review on the Edelbrock article. Let me know if you want me to copyedit it. I've done numerous GA reviews. Royalbroil 00:36, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Did you notice that I've created a section at Talk:Edelbrock where I'm in the middle of doing a GA level review of the article. Note that this is not the official GA review process. That needs to be done with by someone impartial who hasn't edited the article. The review needs to happen through the WP:GA process. You do need to do a fair bit of work to get it up to GA standards. One of the biggest problems that I've found so far is that you have numerous statistical & controversial statements that are not sourced to reliable sources. Please also read the article to see what things are in the article that someone could argue against you, because these are either original research or POV. There are a few, not a huge number. Things like "Its simple compact design launched a generation of innovations that stood the test of time". It sounds like marketing from Chevy. A Ford fan who hates Chevy would argue against you. Overall the article is well-done. Note that I'm a pretty harsh critic at the GA level so if I'm okay with something then you'll probably get through GA pretty easily. You should expect to wait around 1 month after nominating it at GA before it actually gets reviewed. Please wait until my review and your editing is done before nominating it.

WILLIAM TOMICKI Possible deletion[edit]

Dear Miracle Mat:

Thank you for your interest in my Wikipedia article. And for your comments.

I like you, want an accurate and scrupulously honest article that reflects my credentials.

My wish to have the page deleted was a knee jerk reaction to stress and to the controversy surrounding all this. This was poor judgement on my part. I would like my article retained. And I am most happy to provide any additional material, references, articles, background, facts, figures etc to support my article.

I applaud and support Wikipedia's passionate and relentless truth seeking, believe me.

Sincerely,

WILLIAM TOMICKI

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.
