Article Suggestions

Hi, I noticed that you are working on an article in your sandbox. Well done so far. I wanted to suggest a couple of things:

  1. No need to number the sections. I would also remove the “Introduction” section, as I think this is obvious.
  2. Do not number the notes. The letters are fine.

That's it right now. Feel free to ask if you have any questions. Keep up the good work! —Jules Carry (talk) 09:13, 10 September 2020 (EDT)

Moved Intro

Hello, I moved the introduction to the article and made some tweaks. I think we can dispense with labeling the intro like it is in the journal. This is a tough article as far as notes and sources are concerned, so I’m happy to help you get it posted—though I’m sure you would do fine by yourself. —Jules Carry (talk) 07:51, 17 September 2020 (EDT)

@Jules Carry: Hi, thanks for your help! I copied the rest of the article over to its page. The main thing I'm not sure about as far as formatting is the block quotes in the body. The original article used indented paragraph style with no space afterwards and a couple of the block quotes actually contain more than one paragraph. I wasn't sure if I should use an extra hard return to separate them or not (and I think I may have gone one way with one and the other way with another). Other than that I'll give it another look with fresh eyes this weekend to look for errors and after that, it's done, I think. Amylhester (talk) 22:42, 17 September 2020 (EDT)
@Amylhester: Yeah, those can cause a bit of trouble. The trick is to do a return just after the tag, then it will format correctly. I took care of this and tweaked some refs. Very good job on a challenging article! You may want to read through one more time before submitting to User:Grlucas. —Jules Carry (talk) 08:49, 18 September 2020 (EDT)
