Better late than never, I guess! Hi Professor Reagle - see you in class tomorrow! Also, a quick question: Where is the Alfie Kohn reading for Friday located? I noticed it isn't linked in the syllabus like most of the other readings are. Thanks! Csirabella (talk) 14:39, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Csirabella, true! -Reagle (talk) 15:33, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Maneesh Sethi

Howdy Reagle,

I appreciate your edits, as well as your reply! Maybe we could set some things straight here.

There is obviously some confusion, because Maneesh Sethi did work with Tim Ferriss as a result of the contest, and your edits have made it clear that our source is not sufficient.

Here is a link to an article written by Maneesh on the experience. Before we cast that out for being illegitimate/biased, Tim Ferriss tweeted the article, which would seem to back up its claims (IMO). I had no part in these occasions, and rewording within the article is most likely necessary, but I'd like to find a way we could come to an agreement on the series of events (as I'm currently losing a game of telephone).

Additionally, choosing to refer to "Save Them" as an ephemeral fundraiser rather than an NGO is a distinction you are free to make personally, but does no favors in the way of accuracy. Adding a specific time frame seems like a good option to reduce the odds that readers will mistakenly believe it is an ongoing project. Save Them has also been referred to as an NGO ubiquitously elsewhere on the Internet, and I'd argue there's a benefit to parallelism.

Lastly, I'm surprised to see you are an assistant professor at my alma mater -- a happy coincidence! I'd be curious to know if you're familiar with the professor I had for my class on writing for Wikipedia.

Let me know your thoughts! And a merry Allston Christmas. Crud muffins (talk) 17:00, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Crud muffins, thanks for the note. I ended up writing about Sethi for some research on life hacking and most of the things I changed were because they led me on a wrong path. That is, I figured that if I found them misleading, others would too. For example, it took me, literally, hours to page through Ferriss' archives to find who won his two 4HWW video submission contests. But let's take this to the article's talk page. I think that would be the better place. I'll try to break down the issues over there a bit more right now. -Reagle (talk) 19:49, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Message from students Fall 2016

I'm really looking forward to this semester! My friend, Paloma, took this course last spring (she built the Eskimeaux article) and highly recommended it. -Npilchen (talk) 03:01, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Npilchen, thanks! -Reagle (talk) 12:52, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Professor! Looking forward to starting my Wikipedia page. I have a couple more ideas for topics now. I just need to decide which one! Kbaker22 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 13:20, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Professor Reagle! Just added to the proposed topics page. Hopefully it looks like something that will work for this project. Also, I just remembered that my Spanish teacher last semester mentioned that he had a goth nephew in Puerto Rico. (His family doesn't understand.) Anyways, seemed relevant to what you were talking about in class. See you tomorrow! -Katie Zack (talk) 21:43, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Katie Zack, funny! Here's the video I was talking about -Reagle (talk) 13:40, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Professor Reagle, happy to have another class with you! Looking forward to learning more about online community management, and hope to apply these learnings in my future career. Novey.n (talk) 06:08, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Novey.n, happy to see you again too -Reagle (talk) 13:40, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Professor Reagle, happy to have another class with you this semester, looking forward to being able to call myself a Wikipedian! Emma Carleton (talk) 13:19, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Emma Carleton, likewise! -Reagle (talk) 13:40, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Prof. Reagle - I was excited to hear that you're a self-identified geek and I look forward to chatting with you about video games and science fiction! As a person who takes pride in their involvement with online communities, I'm honestly baffled that I never knew Wikipedia had such an active community, or that there was one at all, frankly. But I can see it being something I get a little addicted to. If that happens I'm definitely blaming you. Rroberie (talk) 17:06, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
