A favor to ask[edit]

Hi there. I have favor to ask, but if you are too busy on wiki or IRL then just let me know. Can you possibly archive the events from WikiWomen's History Month and make an archive page like you did for 2012? This would help me so much in preparing to announce the third year of WWHM. Thanks Jason for considering this :) SarahStierch (talk) 19:11, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

@SarahStierch: No problem! I am juggling a few things at the moment, but I will do this for you very soon. --Another Believer (Talk) 19:25, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Great! Thanks. I just expanded the resources section and have to go back to worky things (aka not fun Wikipedia stuff, well, not editing that is :) ). I appreciate it! SarahStierch (talk) 19:39, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
@SarahStierch: I hope this is what you had in mind. I just copied content from the main WW page and pasted it on an archive page for 2013. Feel free to change the tense throughout the text, if you prefer. Also, I was not sure if some of the "upcoming online" content, still on the main WW page, should also be transferred over. Of course, you are welcome to make changes, but at least now a 2013 archive page exists and is categorized correctly. Hope that helps! --Another Believer (Talk) 21:14, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Also, in the Howard Stern section, you might want to add another inline citation immediately following his quotes. Great job on the expansion! --Another Believer (Talk) 16:33, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Deep networking: Built relationships with Credo, HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, Cochrane, LexisNexis, EBSCO, New York Times, and OCLC
New pilot projects: Started the Wikipedia Visiting Scholar project to empower university-affiliated Wikipedia researchers
Developed community: Created portal connecting 250 newsletter recipients, 30 library members, 3 volunteer coordinators, and 2 part-time contractors
Tech scoped: Spec'd out a reference tool for linking to full-text sources and established a basis for OAuth integration
Broad outreach: Wrote a feature article for Library Journal's The Digital Shift; presenting at the American Library Association annual meeting

Streetcar Snapshot 2[edit]

Hi, AB. Although you didn't ask for a reply to your post here last month (now moved to your archive), I always did intend to reply, but I've just had very little time for any Wikipedia editing over the last month (just look at how few contributions I've made this month), especially non-urgent ones or ones taking more than a few seconds. Sorry to disappoint you with my lack of interest in participating. I definitely agree that "having pictures from all times of the year can be valuable". However, photo campaigns that are successful (generate a lot of new photo uploads for Wikipedia) end up, by their very nature, creating a disproportionate amount of content from one time of the year. Although that's not a problem for indoor subjects or campaigns focused on a particular time of year (e.g. Christmas), it is a drawback for campaigns for photos of outdoor subjects such as the Portland Streetcar. In the winter, all the trees are bare of leaves, the sky gray, colors dull, etc. (True, bare trees can actually help in views of certain historic buildings that are heavily obscured by trees, but those are the exception.)

That gives you a little more info. on why I was slightly critical of the timing. However, there's another issue for me – and this one carries no criticism at all, but I figure you might want to know. Although I was a big contributor in the Wikipedia Takes Portland 2013 campaign, I'm generally not going to be interested in additional photo campaigns for this reason: I'm mainly only interested in uploading photos to Commons when there are gaps in coverage, or when I can provide photos that are much better than the existing ones. Although I uploaded 91 images in that NRHP-focused campaign, almost every one of the buildings I photographed were ones that either had no photo available for WP or only one or two relatively poor photos. Except for NRHP-listed Portland bridges (which have additional interest for me, as a bridge fan), I didn't upload large numbers of photos of individual buildings, because the articles (or lists) only needed one or two photos, and I was concentrating on uploading photos which could (mostly) be immediately 'put to use' in a WP article or list. This should not be interpreted as critical of anyone who uploads 30 photos of a single building, not at all, particularly when the photos are high-quality ones such as yours typically are. But that's not something I'm interested in doing. I don't currently see any major "gap" in the photo coverage for the article about the Portland Streetcar (I've already filled any major gaps there), and so I'm not interested in uploading a lot of photos and probably won't upload any right now. SJ Morg (talk) 08:57, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

  • @SJ Morg: Thank you for the additional feedback. It is always good Wikipedians' preferences and how they like to contribute to the project. Right now, one photographer and I are having fun putting together these photo campaigns and it is always nice if our work leverages additional participation. Let me know if you have any ideas for photo campaign, or other wiki-activities for WikiProject Oregon. For the month of February, we will focus on the Kenton district and Oregon's coffee culture. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:57, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

I still prefer 4 among all her albums. 4 is just magical for me. This self-tilted album is also good but very sexual. Lol. And by the way, I am not referring to the remix with Azealia Banks and company but to this actually. Such a bop. :D Bye, take care. P.S I will spend more time on that "Partition" article.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

WikiCup 2014 January newsletter[edit]

The 2014 WikiCup is off to a flying start, with, at time of writing, 138 participants. The is the largest number of participants we have seen since 2010. If you are yet to join the competition, don't worry- the judges have agreed to keep the signups open for a few more days. By a wide margin, our current leader is newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), whose set of 14 featured pictures, the first FPs of the competition, was worth 490 points. Here are some more noteworthy scorers:

Featured articles, featured lists, featured topics and featured portals are yet to play a part in the competition. The judges have removed a number of submissions which were deemed ineligible. Typically, we aim to see work on a project, followed by a nomination, followed by promotion, this year. We apologise for any disappointment caused by our strict enforcement this year; we're aiming to keep the competition as fair as possible.

Wikipedians interested in friendly competition may be interested to take part in The Core Contest; unlike the WikiCup, The Core Contest is not about audited content, but, like the WikiCup, it is about article improvement; specifically, The Core Contest is about contribution to some of Wikipedia's most important article. Of course, any work done for The Core Contest, if it leads to a DYK, GA or FA, can earn WikiCup points.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Hi Another Believer, I am writing up a story on the ArtAndFeminism meetups from last week for In the Media in this week's Signpost, and was wondering if you could give a brief comment on how it went/future plans with it/success or failure/etc. I am pinging several users in hopes that one will reply by the deadline, which is likely some time tonight. Thanks in advance. Go Phightins! 19:40, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

  • @Go Phightins!: I am not sure I have time at the moment to provide summary of the entire campaign, but this link might be helpful: Wikipedia:ArtAndFeminism 2014/Outcomes. I'd be happy to offer a summary of the Portland, Oregon event, if you are interested (or see this section of the Outcomes page). In Portland, I estimate there were at least 40 participants who attended the event, which was six hours long and was held at Portland State University. Nearly a dozen Wikipedia articles were created, and more than twice that number were improved. Participants had many of their questions answered and were supplied educational brochures created by the Wikimedia Foundation. There was great interest in organizing similar events in the future, and I've heard there are already plans to host another arts edit-athon in April. I hope that helps! I would recommend reaching out to User:OR drohowa for more information about the campaign overall. -Another Believer (Talk) 20:29, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

The Sound of Music Live![edit]

Please undo your revert. Your statement of "This has been discussed on the talk page; you may discuss further there if you wish" is not true as it was not discussed at all. And I made relevant points on the talk page and no one contradicted me or made a comment so please undo your revert. Thanks! 184.58.24.163 (talk) 21:05, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Please see Talk:The Sound of Music Live!#Musical numbers section. Thanks. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:07, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

You apparently did not read my statement as I commented there. Here so you can see:

I don't think it is redundant as it is a remake of the play and not to mention that there are songs that are not included on the soundtrack but are featured in the "show" and it should be noted and what better then having a full list of the musical numbers? 184.58.24.163 (talk) 23:44, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
I would also like to point out that both the play's page and the film's page list their musical numbers and this is based loosely off both of them so again how is this redundant? 184.58.24.163 (talk) 23:50, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

No one commented or contradicted me so please undo your revert. 184.58.24.163 (talk) 21:10, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

I did read your comment. You will see that another contributor also thought the information was redundant. Please keep the discussion of this article on its talk page. Thank you. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:12, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
Can't if no one is going to comment. Thanks. And may I ask how do you intend to mention about the reprises that are in the broadcast but not on the soundtrack? If you do not there needs to be a musical numbers section. 184.58.24.163 (talk) 21:16, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Two people agreeing is not a discussion. Sorry. Your reverting saying it has been discussed is wrong but whatever it is your page do whatever you want it will never get any better as there is missing information like a list of all the songs performed in the broadcast which you keep removing as there are songs not featured on the soundtrack and "further discussion" is not an option if you are going to keep reverting and not make a statement on the talk page so please do not tell me to take it there if you are not willing to discuss it there. 184.58.24.163 (talk) 10:15, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

I do not see the article as mine and I consider the value of your opinion equal to my own. We happen to disagree about the inclusion of certain content, and someone else has agreed with my point of view. Discussions can always continue and content can be returned to the article if consensus determines it should be included. Please keep discussion on the article's talk page and not here. Thank you. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:37, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

I would like to change the genre of the soundtrack album in the infobox to Soundtrack, musical theatre and show tune. The AllMusic Guide slots this release and virtually all other musical theatre releases in the Classical genre, even musicals with pop-rock scores and Disney scores too. It's not entirely reliable in classifying its musical theatre recordings. I know that my edits may not have solid grounds. However I've tried again and cited the iTunes album detail page as my source. Hopefully this will be more pleasing and settle the issue. Yip1982 (talk) 01:38, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Bryant, Mary's[edit]

Thanks for your enthusiastic comments about Louise Bryant. I, too, think it would pass GA without much trouble. Not sure I have the patience and stamina for FA; I can see problems (a GIF for the lead photo, for example), an incomplete bibliography, and disagreements among the biographers that I would rather not spend more time sorting out. I will probably try GA, though. As for Mary's Club, I'm at the end of interesting things I can find in the old Oregonians. I wonder if anyone has written a book about strip clubs that might mention Mary's Club. It would be good to find an RS based far from Portland, but I don't know if one exists. Finetooth (talk) 20:02, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Sculpture renames[edit]

WP:VAMOS says "The names of less well-known artists may not be suitable disambiguation terms", and edits like this and this are unhelpful to the reader as the artists are totally obscure. Better to leave them as they are, or if you must tinker, move to "Person (Place statue)". Consistent with what exactly? Johnbod (talk) 17:08, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

@Johnbod: According to Wikipedia:VAMOS#Works_of_art, "If the title is not very specific, or refers to a common subject, add the surname of the artist in brackets afterwards, e.g. Reading the Letter (Picasso). It is generally better to disambiguate by the artist's name than by medium, as there may be other paintings or sculptures of the same name by other artists. If the artist painted several works with the same, or very similar, titles, add the location of the work if it is in a public collection." To me, this means to disambiguate using the artist's last name. I see the bit about lesser-known artists, too. You are welcome to move them back if you think it best. I just prefer works to be disambiguated by artist. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:13, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
You missed "generally" (I wrote both bits btw). Most artworks with their own articles are by famous or at least well-known artists, but statues of famous people are often or usually exceptions to this. It's not about what you "prefer" but about what readers will find useful, and "(Villani)" is totally meaningless to almost everyone. Thanks very much for the offer to clean up after you, but I think I'll decline. If you wanted to do something useful you should be adding "statue" or "statue by" to many of these. Johnbod (talk) 17:19, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Alright, so we happen to disagree and since I am fine with the artist name being used as a disambiguator, I'll let things be. Thanks. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:23, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
I seem to be reading here that Donald De Lue is not a famous sculptor? Or even "totally obscure"? Hardly. "statue" or "statue by" is silly in the case of any work by him. Though we (wikipedia) has him with a space between De and Lue. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 20:27, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Trust me, he's totally unknown outside the US, though I see I do know one of his works. But how many Americans are familiar with the name really? Johnbod (talk) 21:59, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for adding your thoughts. I don't prefer "[medium] by" as a disambiguator either. I prefer works disambiguated by artist name, then medium if need be ("Picasso painting" and "Picasso sculpture", if there were two works by Picasso of the same name. --Another Believer (Talk) 20:29, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Well I suppose we're all going to have to live with your preferences then. How nice. Johnbod (talk) 21:59, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
... and apparently the preferences of the other person who contributed to this conversation. --Another Believer (Talk) 22:04, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

John stop being such a stick-in-the-mud (unless that's one of the 372 words and phrase that MPs are not allowed to use, in which case I'll find something else). How many sculptors does the average Brit know? The typical American might know three, but that would surprise me. Well unless they know the three Alexander Calders. You know that the art (or is it the science) of editing wikipedia is learning to live with other's decisions. I do like your royal "we", very impressive. Carptrash (talk) 16:36, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

And meanwhile, you have a dozen or more hits on my watchlist in the past short while. Good work. Carptrash (talk) 21:39, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. The "bronze sculptures in the United States" category has way too many entries. Creating subcats by state. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:40, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
So, to further muddy already murky waters, there are two The Hiker statues, one by Newman and the other by Kitson and each has numerous castings in as many states. Do you want them categorized by states too? Carptrash (talk) 21:49, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
@Carptrash: For sculptures with castings in multiple locations, I am including them in subcategories for each state. I suppose this might only be problematic for a sculpture with castings in a LOT of locations. It is hard to say which is better--keeping the examples you mentioned in the general U.S. category, or including subcategories for EACH location. --Another Believer (Talk) 21:57, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
Exactly, Carptrash (talk) 23:09, 21 February 2014 (UTC)
@Carptrash: I re-categorized most of the entries in Category:Bronze sculptures in the United States. The remaining ones are a bit trickier, or at least less obvious. --Another Believer (Talk) 23:20, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Artpop consensus[edit]

@Another Believer: Just to make sure you understand the situation fully, here are the nine sources I've listed that explicitly state that the album received generally positive reviews: DigitalSpy, Metacritic's weighted consensus of generally favorable, The Huffington Post, Entertainmentwise, YahooMusic, The Southern Digest, Pride Publishing Group, Off the Shelf, Street Insider. STATic has been engaged in this debate for months and has admitted twice that he dislikes Lady Gaga and even made fun of her and her fans, which obviously constitutes WP:Bias. This has been a ridiculous process that had no business lasting as long as it did, but as you can see, the consensus is obviously generally positive.

WikiCup 2014 February newsletter[edit]

And so ends the most competitive first round we have ever seen, with 38 points required to qualify for round 2. Last year, 19 points secured a place; before that, 11 (2012) or 8 (2011) were enough. This is both a blessing and a curse. While it shows the vigourous good health of the competition, it also means that we have already lost many worthy competitors. Our top three scorers were:

  1. Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions), a WikiCup newcomer whose high-quality scans of rare banknotes represent an unusual, interesting and valuable contribution to Wikipedia. Most of Godot's points this round have come from a large set of pictures used in Treasury Note (1890–91).
  2. Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions), a WikiCup veteran and a finalist last year, Adam is also a featured picture specialist, focusing on the restoration of historical images. This month's promotions have included a carefully restored set of artist William Russell Flint's work.
  3. United States WikiRedactor (submissions), another WikiCup newcomer. WikiRedactor has claimed points for good article reviews and good articles relating to pop music, many of which were awarded bonus points. Articles include Sky Ferreira, Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and "Wrecking Ball" (Miley Cyrus song).

Other competitors of note include:

After such a competitive first round, expect the second round to also be fiercely fought. Remember that any content promoted after the end of round 1 but before the start of round 2 can be claimed in round 2, but please do not update your submission page until March (UTC). Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

G.U.Y. (song)[edit]

Just why? I usually agree with your edits but this is just too much I feel. :( —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 17:18, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

@IndianBio: What's up? I saw that someone had created an alternate page for G.U.Y., then also added the song as the next single from Artpop, but I reverted the addition since no source was provided. Then I searched online and found the article about Gaga filming a music video for her next single, so I thought it best to create a stub. Is this not accurate information? --Another Believer (Talk) 17:21, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
You know the problem is having no substantial information and the music video shoot is not confirmed that it was solely for "G.U.Y", could be anything. This fails NSONGS pretty much and would be sooner or later AFD'd. I would strongly suggest you redact your edit and keep it as redirect untill Gaga says something about what's going on. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 17:24, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
Hmm. Not confirmed to be specific to the song? The article, titled "Lady Gaga attacked by slow loris during GUY video clip filming", says "Gaga was filming a video clip to accompany her new single GUY (Girl Under You)..." That is pretty convincing to me. I am sorry if you disagree with expanding the redirect into a stub. I imagine there is quite a bit of background and reception information to include as well. I don't plan to revert to a redirect, but I understand someone else might. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:31, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
@IndianBio: According to Broadway World, the video will be previewed tomorrow on Today and will debut in its entirety on Dateline NBC the following evening. This source also includes artwork, perhaps the single cover? --Another Believer (Talk) 19:37, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
AB, sorry if I had seemed harsh in the first message. I'm jsut waiting for any kind of confirmation from the horse's mouth itself. Thing is all of them are third party sources talking about releasing a music video for "G.U.Y." but Gaga (I just checked her Twitter) is still not saying that the next single is GUY. Who knows, it might end up being just a music video also. In any case thanks for holding up to the article. You want me to develop it ala "Artpop"? —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 14:05, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
@IndianBio: No need to apologize. Perhaps I jumped the gun a bit. I was just seeing the song in the news a bit and figured there was no harm in creating a stub. You, of course, are most welcome to assist with expanding the article! --Another Believer (Talk) 14:45, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

WikiCup newcomer Smithsonian Institution Godot13 (submissions) (Pool E) leads, having produced a massive set of featured pictures for Silver certificate (United States), an article also brought to featured list status. Former finalist Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly... Adam Cuerden (submissions) (Pool G) is in second, which he owes mostly to his work with historical images, including a number of images from Urania's Mirror, an article also brought to good status. 2010 champion Colorado Sturmvogel_66 (submissions) (Pool C) is third overall, thanks to contributions relating to naval history, including the newly featured Japanese battleship Nagato. Rhodesia Cliftonian (submissions), who currently leads Pool A and is sixth overall, takes the title for the highest scoring individual article of the competition so far, with the top importance featured article Ian Smith.

With 26 people having already scored over 100 points, it is likely that well over 100 points will be needed to secure a place in round 3. Recent years have required 123 (2013), 65 (2012), 41 (2011) and 100 (2010). Remember that only 64 will progress to round 3 at the end of April. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page; if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points equally. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to help keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

You knew this would have come one day or another. Inspite of that you still created the "Swine" article which double fails notability same as these. I'm really failing to understand what stops you from developing these articles in the sandbox? —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 05:46, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Sorry but I had to AfD "Swine" as well. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 06:13, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry, too. Stubs for notable subjects should not be deleted. At worst, they should be re-directed to the appropriate article, in this case the album. --Another Believer (Talk) 16:15, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
Per WP:NSONGS, articles on songs should not be created if there are not multiple reliable sources giving in-depth coverage to expand beyond a stub, album reviews and self-promotion don't count. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 17:08, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
I've already redirected the articles so that we can avoid wasting more time on this. We just have to agree and disagree (I've already removed the stubs!) and move on. Thanks. --Another Believer (Talk) 17:10, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

WP:GOCE copy edit for GU Energy Labs[edit]

I have completed your requested copy edit of GU Energy Labs. It was a pleasure, as always. I put explanatory comments in the edit summaries. Let me know if you have any questions.

Sorry we didn't get to meet in person at the Meetup in Eugene last month; maybe next time. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:20, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

@Jonesey95: No need to apologize! Hopefully another time. Thank you for your copy edit. You made major improvements to the article. Much appreciated. --Another Believer (Talk) 03:25, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Link needed in Gypsy Restaurant and Velvet Lounge[edit]

Can you please help make the word "club" less ambiguous in the lead of Gypsy Restaurant and Velvet Lounge, ideally with a wikilink? Was it a nightclub? A men's club? A dance club? A club with memberships of some sort? I am being deliberately obtuse, but it's not really clear in the article, and it's beyond the scope of copy editing.

Also, do you have any source that gives an establishment date for the restaurant? In or before 1948, clearly, but I didn't see anything before that. Even if "before 1948" is all you have, I'd put that in the infobox. That's a long run.

The pieces about the address changes are somewhat confusing. Could the "In 1963" location be accurately described as "In 1963, the restaurant and lounge moved to its final location, at the intersection..."

And you're right, Cinema 21 definitely needs an article. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:31, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

@Jonesey95: Yes check.svg Done Thanks. I linked club to Nightclub. I see that you added "before 1949" to the infobox. I have not yet found a date of establishment, but will certainly update the article accordingly, if and when I find a year. Also, I updated the relocation wording, using your suggestion above. --Another Believer (Talk) 15:33, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and hopefully a Cinema 21 article is on its way! --Another Believer (Talk) 15:33, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

WP:GOCE copy edit for Gypsy Restaurant and Velvet Lounge[edit]

I have completed your requested copy edit of Gypsy Restaurant and Velvet Lounge. See the section above for puzzles that I was unable to find a solution to. Let me know if you have any questions. – Jonesey95 (talk) 05:19, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

@Jonesey95: Thank you so much for your reviewing this article. I agree with all of your edits. I did go ahead and italicize Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog per its article. I will address the above section ASAP. Thanks again! --Another Believer (Talk) 15:28, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

File:GU Energy Labs logo.png listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:GU Energy Labs logo.png, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination. Thank you. Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:40, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

  • @Mercurywoodrose: Thanks for the notification. I uploaded the logo under fair use here at English Wikipedia, not Commons. I am fine if the image is removed from Commons, but if it is, can it please be kept here at ENWP? --Another Believer (Talk) 15:24, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
    • I am fine with that if its standard practice. i thought we usually kept files at commons instead of enwp if possible. please argue your case at the afd. if anyone says its ok, i will withdraw my nomination.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:10, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
      • Oh, I did not realize that the ENWP version was being deleted because a separate image had been uploaded at Commons. I would not think that image could live at Commons, but I will let others be the judge of that. I just want for the article to retain one logo file or the other, regardless of whether it lives at ENWP or Commons. --Another Believer (Talk) 02:14, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

If you're curious[edit]

I believe we met at the AboutUs offices back in 2011, on the 10th anniversary of Wikipedia's founding. Then again, I may be confusing you with someone else; I have a bad memory for people's names, let alone usernames ... -- llywrch (talk) 15:55, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

@Llywrch: Ohh, ok, thanks! Yes, I did attend that event, but I am still unable to put a face/name with your username. I suppose that just means we need to have another meetup! :p --Another Believer (Talk) 15:57, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Of course, but depending on the next Wikimeetup in PDX, & if I'm not feeling frustrated with Wikipedia at the time. Or my wife & daughter have other plans for that day: they're the ones who seem to have most control over my schedule. ;-) -- llywrch (talk) 16:06, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good! There is a meetup this weekend at PNCA, but if not then, another time! -Another Believer (Talk) 17:22, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Need a GA review?[edit]

User:Montanabw is looking for a GA to review, as noted on my talk page. I thought of you since you often have things in the hopper. Finetooth (talk) 22:36, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Great! Thanks. I posted a couple suggestions on your talk page. --Another Believer (Talk) 22:40, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
