Copy edit[edit]

Hello, greetings. Have rewritten "Indian National Congress article but it became very lengthy. Need grammatical review. Will you please help me. Thank you. "25 CENTS VICTORIOUS " 15:28, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello back to you... thanks for the offer but I have to decline. I know nothing about the project you're working on and my learning curve on this matter would be very steep. I have a lot I am working on in my areas without getting into a new area such as foreign political parties. BTW: I read your user page and I concur with your observations about technical articles. My regrets I can't help you on this article. Many thanks, "Risk Engineer ("talk) 19:03, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Article Edits on Frederick and Pennsylvania Line and Little Pipe Creek bridge[edit]

Hi. Your contributions to the Wikipedia articles are appreciated. However, there are a number of style and formatting policies and principles that apply to Wiki articles generally, and there are some that have evolved more specifically in the railroad articles. There is information in the Wiki Help section on these points, e.g. "MOS:IMAGES. I will try to address your specific questions here, but I encourage you to look at the Wiki Manual of Style and some other railroad-related articles for examples.

"c/e" is an abbreviation for copyedit.

The railroad infobox is a quick summary of a railroad company or rail line particulars. It may include an image (common practice is to use a photo of a station or locomotive) and a map. There being no other photographs or illustrations yet available, it was practical to place the letterhead graphic there. It is not common practice to place a large banner-type image at the top of an article, and certainly not if it is merely a letterhead graphic. (Even in an article such as the "Grand Canyon, where the use of a wide photo is appropriate, there is a right-justified photo in an infobox at the top of the article. Wider, panoramic photos appear further down in that article.)

Regarding images and the PRR letterhead. The PRR had hundreds of predecessor and subsidiary companies. It's not appropriate or useful to have images about the PRR on all of its subsidiary pages. An article about a subsidiary should talk mainly about that subsidiary, and have images that depict the subsidiary. The article can include an explanation of the subsidiary's relationship to the parent company; i.e., when it was bought and sold, how it was operated, etc. (I made some edits to the bridge article in this regard.) The images on the F&PL page should depict the F&PL directly, i.e. illustrations of photos of rolling stock, depots, junctions, maps, documents, etc. The current images of the F&PL documents, although somewhat obscure, are on topic. The photo of the B&O iron rail, while interesting, has nothing to do the with F&PL. It could be posted on the B&O page, or in an article about iron rail manufacturing, perhaps.

Material that's directly about the PRR, such as a logo, would be placed on the main PRR page itself. The PRR was, for many years, the largest US railroad, and accordingly it has a long article with many images, which has been edited by many knowledgable people. You could try adding the letterhead image there, but you may find that other editors do not concur on its importance.

The rules about the standard sections at the bottom of the article are laid out in the Manual of Style. The "See also" section contains only links to other Wikipedia articles (internal links). References that directly support the article go in the "References" section, preferably with in-line citations. Links to other related material goes in the "External links" section, each with a brief label.

Thanks for your interest and best of luck with your editing. "Caseyjonz ("talk) 04:07, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Battle of Fort Stevens Edit-a-Thon![edit]

See you at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Street, Laurel, MD on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM EST. See http://www.meetup.com/Wikimedia-DC/events/205494212/ for more information. "Geraldshields11 ("talk) 02:13, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC invites revolutionaries, free thinkers, and other sundry editors to a DC WikiSalon[edit]

The WikiSalon is a special meetup usually held during the first and third full weeks of every month, from 7 PM to 9 PM. It's an informal gathering of Wikimedia enthusiasts, who come together to discuss Wikimedia wikis and collaboratively edit. There's no set agenda, and guests are welcome to recommend articles for the group to edit or edit on their own.

If you're coming by Metro, the closest station is Dupont Circle (on the Red Line). If you're driving, a lot of parking opens up downtown after 6:30 PM, so finding a parking space (even a free one) should be easy. Once you've found the building, go to Cove on the second floor. We will be in the conference room.

When: Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Where: The Cove, Dupont Circle, 1730 Connecticut Avenue NW, 2nd floor, 20009, DC
