Thanks for the welcome Thinker78. My apologies for this late reply. I am only able to able to explore the community, talk pages and noticeboards recently. The wikimarkups was initially daunting and I also thought your message was automated :). Anyway, the resources you posted were very helpful since I could just open my Talk page and find the links. The sheer amount of info for editors could be quite overwhelming.Darwin Naz (talk) 01:44, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Goddess movement[edit]

Thanks for your recent edits there. It seems you have access to some decent academic material on relevant subjects. I encourage you to keep contributing, to that article or others of your choice. If you do keep improving Goddess movement, you may wish to remove some of the warning templates at the top of the page, once you think they are no longer needed. There are complaints on the article talk page going back a decade, but not much real work for years, so your contributions make a difference - thank you. Carbon Caryatid (talk) 08:43, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a lot Carbon Caryatid (talk). I appreciate the good word. I will take a look a closer look at Goddess movement whenever I have time and contribute as much as I can.
Great! And as you're finding your way around Wikipedia, don't be afraid to ask for help - from me, or the Teahouse, or on talk pages and project pages. I'll give you a gentle reminder to sign your posts with four tildes ~. Carbon Caryatid (talk) 19:42, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
I will do that. I am actually learning more about using this Talk feature and the norms entailed in my conversations with other users like you. Noted on the tildes. Thanks! Darwin Naz (talk) 22:07, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
It is a pleasure to mentor new editors who, such as yourself, indicate a desire to learn community norms, and contribute positively to the encyclopedia.

References[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. Remember that when adding content about health, please only use high-quality reliable sources as references. We typically use review articles, major textbooks and position statements of national or international organizations (There are several kinds of sources that discuss health: here is how the community classifies them and uses them). WP:MEDHOW walks you through editing step by step. A list of resources to help edit health content can be found here. The edit box has a built-in citation tool to easily format references based on the PMID or ISBN. We also provide style advice about the structure and content of medicine-related encyclopedia articles. The welcome page is another good place to learn about editing the encyclopedia. If you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a note. Jytdog (talk) 06:07, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi. I will definitely send you a message if I have a question or need assistance. Also, thank you for taking time listing those resources. They will be very helpful. Darwin Naz (talk) 13:16, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

Edit to Aesthetic Realism Lead[edit]

Hi, Darwin Naz.  

Regarding your edit to the Aesthetic Realism lead, Aesthetic Realism does not hold “that happiness can be attained through a unity or harmony of the opposites such as the acceptance that the world is both beautiful and horrific.”  Perhaps you wanted to simplify the lead by summarizing the study in one sentence, but this source misrepresents it.

The Concise Guide to Today's Religions and Spirituality is the publication of a right-wing religious group called Watchman Fellowship (based in Texas) whose mission is to convert adherents of what they call cults  (defined as “mediators between you and God”) "to true Christianity."  Any religion or movement that doesn't embrace the Walker Fundamentalist interpretation of scripture is listed as a cult including Roman Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Taoism, the Baha'i Faith, Native American religions, and on and on and on.  It is hardly a scholarly work, and it is not part of mainstream Christianity but advances a prejudicial point of view that is far to the right and highly distorted.   Walker, in a sloppy way, equates Aesthetic Realism with Taoism simply because it talks about opposites.

Aesthetic Realism is a very careful, wide, educational philosophy founded in 1941 and it is grounded in scholarship of the world’s literature, history, and art.

If the goal was to make the lead description shorter, maybe you could replace the Walker description with Eli Siegel’s description of the philosophy as "the art of liking the world and oneself at the same time, by seeing the world and oneself as aesthetic opposites.” (Using the NYT source you quoted).  

At any rate, we need to take out the Walker sentences asap as not being a reliable source. I would suggest reverting the lead back to the way it was and perhaps adding the NYT quote as a summarizing sentence.  This would provide a fuller and more accurate description of the philosophy.
Nathan43 (talk) 16:32, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi Nathan43. You seem to be very knowledgeable on the subject. Feel free to make changes to any of the edits made so that the article can be improved further. Best regards, Darwin Naz (talk) 21:52, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, Darwin Naz. I'm reverting now. Nathan43 (talk) 22:30, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Emotive Internet moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Emotive Internet, does not have proper sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). Specifically, this article is using a neologism, which is not explicitly referred to in the citations. See WP:NEOLOGISM for information on what such a page requires.

I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page.

adverse experiences definitely deter future participation.[edit]

i seldom edit articles anymore since i think every one has been reverted destroying hundreds of hours of work... POOF up in smoke with a couple mouse clicks by arrogant ASSHOLES ...

I even stopped participating in editing workshops, so the community has definitely lost a good editor because they ignore the harm of arrogant elitist editors --Qazwiz (talk) 17:53, 31 January 2019 (UTC) to be clear, i'm not saying my contributions were perfect, far from it, i expected editing of the material... but i defy you to find somewhere that a contribution by me had an attempt of improvement before some heavy handed revert eleminated my thoughtful typing. which by the way takes me twice as long as most since i don't usually use a regular keyboard --Qazwiz (talk) 17:59, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Qazwiz. That is true. Some forget that this is a crowdsourced platform and an article is supposed to be a collaborative effort. There are also so many rules that an editor could invoke and some of them are vague and even conflicting, so discussions tend to be overly protracted. Unfortunately, I do not see any way to get around it because reverts and deletions are also part of crowdsourced nature of Wikipedia. You can contest artbitrary reverts and deletions and seek consensus. But then, as I cited, it would involve another lengthy process, something one whose work is being questioned would have no drive to pursue. So what I can probably suggest is to be patient :) and, again, you should know that there are editors who understand your frustrations. I, for one, could promise a level-headed/objective help whenever I can. Regards, Darwin Naz (talk) 23:28, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

Copyright problem on Glion Colloquium[edit]

Content you added to the above article appears to have been copied from http://milproj.dc.umich.edu/pdfs/2014/Glion%20Summary.pdf, which is not released under a compatible license. Copying text directly from a source is a violation of Wikipedia's copyright policy. Unfortunately, for copyright reasons, the content had to be removed. Content you add to Wikipedia should be written in your own words. Please leave a message on my talk page if you have any questions. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 20:16, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Presently, I cannot compare my revision to your edit so I could not check the part you said was copied from that PDF source. I think I did use content from that document but sourced it accordingly. I believe that is how you came across that link in the first place. I understand the need to write in my own words but quotes are also allowed as reflected in this entry I added "universities exist to liberate the unlimited creativity of the human species and to celebrate the unbounded resilience of the human spirit," which is now listed under your edit. Also, I did not know that the previously cited PDF source does not have a compatible copyright license or how such license is determined. Darwin Naz (talk) 22:37, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Synod of Verona[edit]

Your addition of information from a self published source has been removed. Xulon Press is a self-publishing company and according to Wikipedia:SPS,"Self-published expert sources may be considered reliable when produced by an established expert on the subject matter, whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable, independent publications." Per Xulon Press, David Bird is a medical doctor with no specialization in the field of history.[1] --Kansas Bear (talk) 02:27, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

TheFamousPeople.com as a source[edit]

Hi Darwin Naz. I noticed that you recently used thefamouspeople.com as a source for biographical information in Leland Chapman. Please note that there is general consensus that thefamouspeople.com does not meet the reliable sourcing criteria for such information. (Discussions here and here). AllStarBio.com seems much worse. If you disagree, let's discuss it. Thanks. --Ronz (talk) 16:00, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Ronz Noted on that. These minor celebrities, since you are probably talking about my edit for the Leland Chapman page, seems to be covered only by these outlets. That page lack inline citations and I tried to add some sources to some of the information given. Darwin Naz (talk) 23:10, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
