Your archives[edit]

Hi Joseph, I was just checking out your talk page for this thread, when I noticed that there was no link from this page to your 2018/2019 archives. I added them manually, and later decided to do it automatically, using the code at Talk:Ionizing radiation, which has a similar archiving setup, so the archive list never needs to be updated manually again. I've also deleted User talk:Reagle/Archive 1, because it contained a single thread that I've moved to the 2016 archive. I deleted it rather than redirecting it because having nearly-empty archive pages can confuse bots/scripts/templates.

Hope you don't mind. Graham87 12:26, 11 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've also made the top template at User talk:Reagle/Archives/2008 the same as the others. Graham87 12:31, 11 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've expanded it and nominated for DYK, feel free to do a copyedit for prose or such (I am not a native speaker :>). PS. I use your book as one of the materials for my class on Wikipedia. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:40, 23 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you Piotrus. I did a quick copyedit -- and flagged "COI" in the edit summary. I'm glad the work remains useful! -Reagle (talk) 19:09, 23 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Reagle! Having an article declined at Articles for Creation can be disappointing. If you are wondering why your article submission was declined, please post a question at the Articles for creation help desk. If you have any other questions about your editing experience, we'd love to help you at the Teahouse, a friendly space on Wikipedia where experienced editors lend a hand to help new editors like yourself! See you there! Fiddle Faddle 18:52, 27 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You are continuing to work in Draft:Joseph M. Reagle Jr., which is not a problem at all. There is, however, no chance or the draft replacing the existing article, nor of a reviewer performing a merge (0.999 probability). My firm suggestion to you is that you create consensus for the merge by continued discussion at the merge discussion location (I see you have started there).
A challenge is that your user name suggests that you may be the person in the draft, or may be related. Please read WP:COI to learn your obligations and how you might proceed. {{request edit}} deployed om the main space article is your friend here. Fiddle Faddle 17:12, 29 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Timtrent, thank you for the note. If you look at Talk:Joseph M. Reagle Jr. you can see a couple of years ago I suggested some specific changes to incorrect information in my biography, some of which were not made. For example, I could not convince someone to fix the dates at which I was at organizations because there was no source that said I was, for example, no longer a fellow or associate at Berkman. I then created a page of User:Reagle/Bio-factoids with sources to help others update the page, but not much progress was made. Last year, I was introduced at a conference using incorrect info from my Wikipedia page, which is embarrassing because I'm a Wikipedia advocate, and decided to try rouse interest in fixing my page again, to no avail. Recently, I decided to try to move forward again, by rewriting the page myself as a decent article should be written in my sandbox. Then people could simply review, fix any any COI/POV issues, and port it over. All the work is done. Again, on the article talk page and Draft talk:Joseph M. Reagle Jr., you can see discussion of how rewriting a decent article does not lend itself to "change X to Y," and recently it's been shuttled from Requests to Edits, to Article for Creation, to Merge Request, and now you are suggesting Requests for Edits again! For years now, I've done everything I could think of to help other Wikipedians improve this page (without WP:COI myself) and it just keeps going in circles. -Reagle (talk) 20:20, 29 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I fear that is the price one pays for being sufficiently notable for an article to exist on one. People also have to care enough about an individual article to make corrections in it. The best approach is one of wry amusement, followed by true apathy. There is irony at work in Wikipedia. You have discovered that the wisdom of crowns depends on the crowd at the time they are asked to be wise. Fiddle Faddle 20:26, 29 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Messages from students[edit]

Hey Professor Reagle, it's Will Goldstein. Hope all is well, just wanted to introduce myself. As you can tell from my username I am a big Toronto Raptors fan and a big sports fan in general. I'm from New York City and have grown up there my entire life. An interesting fact about myself is that I have a twin brother at Cornell who actually looks nothing like me. I will see you in class tomorrow and if there is anything else you would like to know about myself I am very chill and don't mind chatting it up.

Hello Professor Reagle. This is Tess Broll here to introduce herself. I have really enjoyed our first week of class and am excited to see what the rest of the semester brings. I am a Massachusetts native who is finishing up her final year at Northeastern from abroad in London. My plan is to hopefully move here full time after graduation and continue with the job I am currently working here. I really enjoy traveling, art, and the Boston Red Sox. Looking forward to getting to know you and everyone this semester! TessBroll (talk)TessBroll (talk) 15:46, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Professor Reagle, this is Mia Brighenti, I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a fifth year here at Northeastern majoring in Communications and Music Industry. I'm originally from western mass but I love living in Boston and I hope to stay here when I graduate. I wasn't expecting Wikipedia to be a large aspect of this course but I'm excited to learn more about it throughout the semester. Mambonumber7 (talk) 16:36, 18 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Professor Reagle! This is Tess McCallum, dropping by on your talk page to introduce myself. I've just entered my 4th year, studying Communication/Media and Screen Studies, and I'm now starting a minor in Marketing. I'm from Western Mass (just like Mia, I'll have to see where she's from), and usually bop between Boston for school and NYC for co-op. I love watching bad movies and good tv, and I also love to dance. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the semester! - TM21NU (talk) 01:57, 19 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Prof. Reagle! I'm Sumayya (AKA Suki) and I'm excited about taking another one of your courses again. I'm in my last year now, which is both exciting and very nerve-racking. I have both no plans and way too many plans for the future so the next few months should be interesting! Random fact about me is that I'm double jointed in some of my fingers. Looking forward to a great semester ahead! 8isfate (talk) 04:11, 22 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
