Re: Ernest Dowson cleanup[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you marked the Ernest Dowson page, which I just started, as needing cleanup. If you tell me what the problems are, I'll fix it myself. Thanks, JerryFriedman 16:37, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

Hi. You can look at Wikiquote:Templates/People for how a person's quote page should look like. FYI, today we

launched Help:Starting a new page especially to help new wikiquote users see the formatting guidelines. Did you notice it? (If not, could you tell me where you did look?) I am asking all these questions because I am certain we do not manage to point people at the documentation we have efficiently enough, and I am hoping to improve it with your help. Thanks! ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 18:22, 18 August 2005 (UTC)

I started the page before looking at anything except other pages (and I didn't even look at the source). After I saw your cleanup tag, I looked around the Main Page, where I found Wikiquote:Templates/People and used that. I didn't notice Help:Starting a new page, but it looks like it might have been fun. What I haven't found is guidelines for formatting, such as whether to use italics for book titles and quotation marks for story or poem titles. Hope this helps. And how do I determine whether the page no longer needs cleanup? Can you check it? —JerryFriedman 17:48, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
I performed a final cleanup and removed the tag - thanks for all your work. If you wish, you can see the changes I made to see the final formatting issues the page had. Thanks ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 20:00, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
