Is there some type of system in place where authors nominate articles for approval? I am aware of CZ:Approval_Process, however I don't know that we have enough editors policing the '1' status articles for them to get seen and templated with [{ToApprove}} --Eric M Gearhart 04:43, 11 April 2007 (CDT)

Nice work by the way. Well done. Exactly the kind of article that brought me here in the first place --Eric M Gearhart 06:35, 11 April 2007 (CDT)
I hereby nominate the present version of this entry for Approval. I think it's quite robust, well-documented, and well-written; my only thoughts toward improvement would be toward strengthening the very end of the entry, with some discussion of what other media supplanted this endeavor, and giving a more definite sense of the entry's conclusion -- a sort of summing. Other than that, I think it's fabulous! Russell Potter 09:59, 3 May 2007 (CDT)

Is there some reason why this article doesn't live at telephone newspaper (lower case)? It's not a proper name, is it? --Larry Sanger 23:35, 3 May 2007 (CDT)

Since the wiki capitalizes everything (or, I should say, handles things the same either way), I'd prefer to have this article stay as it is. Russell Potter 13:26, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
Well, lower-casing article titles is a common practice on MediaWiki wikis, because it makes it much easier to interlink articles. We do not have to write [[Telephone Newspaper|telephone newspaper]] when linking to an article in passing; we simply write telephone newspaper. --Larry Sanger 17:11, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
I'm happy to abide by the general practice; it just feels odd to type the lowercase title, even knowing it will display with a capitalized first word. A hangover from the print era, I'm sure. Thanks also for doing the approval mechanics here -- looks great! Russell Potter 17:20, 12 May 2007 (CDT)


Congratulations to the Media Workgroup, Thomas H. White, Russell Potter, and everyone else involved. The first approved Media article! --Larry Sanger 17:11, 12 May 2007 (CDT)
