2015 Wikimedia photo competition[edit]

Probably too late for 2015, but has any thought been put into asking for interior pictures of listed (or other) buildings? Supermarket displays are quite ephemeral and worth recording. Modern kit makes this much more realistic to achieve than before, even without using flash. Most people take the external pic.SovalValtos (talk) 14:13, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Grade II listed buildings in Kensington and Chelsea[edit]

Hello. Thank you for creating Grade I listed buildings in Kensington and Chelsea and Grade II* listed buildings in Kensington and Chelsea. Would you be able to create Grade II listed buildings in Kensington and Chelsea please?Zigzig20s (talk) 10:03, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

There's only 1,209 of them! Good luck! --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 11:09, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
You could break them up into several alphabetical lists, as was done for Brighton. I do think it is important to have the list.Zigzig20s (talk) 11:24, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps User:Hassocks5489 will want to help us?Zigzig20s (talk) 11:25, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
The tables were based on a database. I don't have a copy of it myself, but User:KTC might be able to help with producing lists. Nev1 (talk) 17:10, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Augustus[edit]

I would be very grateful if you could unprotect this article. It has been semi - protected for four years. 156.61.250.250 (talk) 16:47, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I've gone ahead and unprotected it though may reinstate protection if vandalism returns at a disruptive level. Nev1 (talk) 17:45, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. 156.61.250.250 (talk) 09:14, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Any thoughts?[edit]

Slack Roman fort or Slack Roman Fort? I used the first, I copied Castleshaw but I've found Bewcastle Roman Fort, Hardknott Roman Fort, Lunt Roman Fort, Ilkley Roman Fort and Strutt's Park Roman fort. As the Romans called it something else I thought it should be named like railway stations (Piccadilly railway station). Just wanted a second opinion. I suppose they ought to be named consistently. Forgot to say Hi, hope you are well. :) J3Mrs (talk) 09:42, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Ho J3Mrs, I'm keeping well - and keeping busy! Hope you're well too. My inclination with Roman forts would be much like yours: Leave fort lower case. It does end up looking a bit peculiar. I'm not sure if there's really a convention on it. Nev1 (talk) 20:30, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok my thoughts too. Somebody changed it but that's Wikipedia for you. I only asked as I know you're interested in castles. I have no idea where to look. Thanks anyway. J3Mrs (talk) 22:26, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Treaty of Louviers[edit]

If you have time, could you look over the Description section for improvements. Thanks.--Doug Coldwell (talk) 12:13, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Doug, I'll happily take a look. Nev1 (talk) 21:28, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
@Doug Coldwell: I think that section is very clear. The potential for things to get complicated is the second of those paragraphs, but I think it was handled well. It might be worth explaining in brackets what the Latin terms mean (or perhaps just swapping dominium for 'control'). Nev1 (talk) 22:15, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Nomination of Oval Books for deletion[edit]

List of scheduled monuments in Mendip[edit]

Hi, Your edit to List of scheduled monuments in Mendip removed a picture and references from Tithe Barn Pilton for no reason I could work out so I have reverted. Your edit summary said "(Semi-automated addition of image(s) and/or commonscat link(s) to monument list)" so I wondered if there was a problem with the gadget?— Rod talk 07:43, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm the creator of the tool Nev1 used to make the edit and can confirm that this is a bug with it. I will work on a fix and hopefully have it out soon. Sorry for the error.--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 09:41, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
The fix was easier than I thought. This looks good to me. If you see anything else like this, let me know. Sorry again for the error!--Dudemanfellabra (talk) 10:02, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the fix.— Rod talk 16:38, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi both, thanks for fixing the tool and sorry for not picking up on that mistake in the first place. Nev1 (talk) 19:41, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
We've had a few more discussions about "bugs"/issues with using the tool on the Mendip list and List of scheduled monuments in West Somerset at User talk:Dudemanfellabra#Commons linker on List of scheduled monuments in West Somerset.— Rod talk 20:00, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Today's featured article/April 10, 2015[edit]

A summary of a Featured Article you nominated at WP:FAC will appear on the Main Page soon. I had to squeeze the summary down to around 1200 characters; was there anything I left out you'd like to see put back in? Could you check the article one more time before its day on the Main Page? - Dank (push to talk) 03:57, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Dank, I'll take a look and get back to you. Nev1 (talk) 18:08, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Dank, the summary looks good to me, I don't think there's a desperate need to include more. Nev1 (talk) 16:23, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay, great. Will I be seeing more of your castles soon? - Dank (push to talk) 18:36, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
As you might have gathered from how long it's taken me to reply(!) I'm a bit short of time at the moment. I can potter about a bit on castle articles here and there, but sadly the extra time needed for FAC quality may be a bit out of reach for the foreseeable future. That's the consequence of me being foolhardy and thinking I can juggle part-time post-graduate research with full-time work. But never say never, all it takes is the right castle. Nev1 (talk) 18:08, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Sounds like fun. Carry on. - Dank (push to talk) 18:34, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Distorted map?[edit]

For this affectation map, we had removed it from Ming dynasty article, there are several other en.wiki articles still use it. Should we remove all? 98.112.79.59 (talk) 21:16, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

I know we discussed the issues with the map years ago, but I don't remember where. Do you have a link? Nev1 (talk) 18:04, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Other 4 articles use this history-distorted map: Arughtai, Treasure voyages, Yongle Emperor's campaigns against the Mongols, Öljei Temür Khan. We need to stop Chinese making false map. 98.112.79.59 (talk) 00:49, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello from the team at Featured article review![edit]

Cscr-featured.svg

We are preparing to take a closer look at Featured articles promoted in 2004–2010 that may need a review. We started with a script-compiled list of older FAs that have not had a recent formal review. The next step is to prune the list by removing articles that are still actively maintained, up-to-date, and believed to meet current standards. We know that many of you personally maintain articles that you nominated, so we'd appreciate your help in winnowing the list where appropriate.

Please take a look at the sandbox list, check over the FAs listed by your name, and indicate on the sandbox talk page your assessment of their current status. Likewise, if you have taken on the maintenance of any listed FAs that were originally nominated by a departed editor, please indicate their status. BLPs should be given especially careful consideration.

Thanks for your help! Maralia (talk) 03:22, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
