Open access[edit]

Hi, I just noted that you had Category:Open access archives speedily moved to Category:Open-access archives. However, this is certainly not uncontroversial. After many discussions, all articles and categories about "open access foo" have omitted the hyphen, so this one is now the only one that deviated from that. Just have a look at the contents of Category:Open access (publishing). --Randykitty (talk) 17:54, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

That's because in the first category it's a compound modifier, and according to WP:HYPHEN#3 it needs a hyphen. Even description of the category hyphenates the term. Armbrust The Homunculus 18:12, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
Please see the discussion here. --Randykitty (talk) 16:35, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi, did you have a chance to look at that discussion? --Randykitty (talk) 17:51, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, and I think it reached a wrong conclusion. If you want that the category is renamed back, than you need to initiate a full discussion. Armbrust The Homunculus 17:57, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps you have noticed that I did not give an opinion myself at that discussion. Personally, I couldn't care less if a hyphen is included or not. However, I do find it irritating that we now have a whole lot of articles and categories that don't use a hyphen and one category that does... Being the one who introduced the inconsistency, I think you should either start moving everything to include a hyphen, or undo the one outlier. --Randykitty (talk) 18:33, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't really want to commit to such a task, and categories can only be renamed through CFD. Armbrust The Homunculus 18:47, 24 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi, thanks for closing this Talk:Acharya S#Request for comment. Anything as closer you can do about the outcome being apparently overruled by a user? In ictu oculi (talk) 09:15, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

I could add back the full name per the RFC and WP:NOTCENSORED and suggest another discussion if they want it to be changed, but I don't really want to get involved in this situation. Armbrust The Homunculus 09:29, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Mitchell Mann[edit]

Hi, saw you deleted a Mitchell Mann article a few years ago, before he turned professional. Just wondering if it was about the snooker player or if it was possible to restore it as he is now a pro.--Snooker155 (talk) 21:23, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

I didn't deleted the article, I just nominated it for deletion (because it was about an amateur snooker player). I also can't undelete the article, as I'm not an administrator. If you want it to be undeleted, than you should initiate a discussion at WP:DRV. Armbrust The Homunculus 21:43, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, if not sucessful I will just create a new one.--Snooker155 (talk) 21:53, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

2014 Paul Hunter Classic[edit]

Seen's tweets hence I looked up Anton Waywod. Anyway turns out Vyacheslav Nikiforov normally goes by the name Slava Nikiforov found a PDF stating his club was CSC Regensburg so maybe you could ask them [1], they're also on twitter, but not so active. As for Ali Masoudi Alavi his club is SC Mayen-Koblenz [2]. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 17:15, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Hopefully they can give us the missing information. Armbrust The Homunculus 17:50, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
I presume you got a response given you changed Nikiforov's nationality to German as for Alavi this says he's German. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 16:19, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, they supplied this information via Facebook. Armbrust The Homunculus 16:37, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Great, that's that sorted then. ★☆ DUCKISJAMMMY☆★ 16:45, 15 August 2014 (UTC)


Kérhetem a segítségedet ezzel kapcsolatban? Az itt található üzeneteimet kellene lefordítani. (Kérlek, hagyd figyelmen kívül az ugyanott arra vonatkozóan tett megjegyzésemet, hogy kifejezetten ellenzem harmadik fél bevonását a fordításba, mivel időközben kiderült, hogy az állítólag anyanyelvi szinten magyarul beszélő szerkesztőtársunk valószínűleg egy szót nem beszél gyönyörű nyelvünkön.) Előre is köszönöm! Borsoka (talk) 12:43, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Bocsi, de én ebbe nem akarok belekeveredni. Különben sem szeretek fordítani. Armbrust The Homunculus 16:55, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Rendben. Borsoka (talk) 18:35, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Featured Pictures Removals Question[edit]

Wasn't sure who to ask this to. Since you usually close FPCs, most likely you know the answer to this. I randomly went on Tomato and noticed that File:Bright red tomato and cross section02.jpg is a Featured Picture itself. And as I was looking over it, I saw that the resolution for its height is lower than the required minimum in the criteria. But I'm wondering if because it has low resolution it warrants a delisting nomination. GamerPro64 02:39, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

The resolution has raised a couple times. If it's only a little under resolution requirement, leave it; if it's way, way under, then it might be worth reconsidering. There are some people who hate resolution-only reasons to delist, though if it's really, really under, I think they'll need to shut up. Or if there's any other issues. Adam Cuerden (talk) 02:51, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
For that one... well, we haven't had formal shots like that in a while at FPC, and I'd be inclined to leave it until we have someone able to replace it. Adam Cuerden (talk) 02:54, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Got it. Honestly, I'm probably one who would not be sure about what issues a picture would have to be delisted anyway. GamerPro64 03:08, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Columbia Flight Recorder[edit]

Hello Armbrust! The Columbia Flight Recorder you put into the article on the disaster is a fake... Can you change it please, I dont know how to do it. Here is 2 links to the right one :, out of respect for the crew, this should be put right. Thank you and kind regards. Best, jone — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:32, 20 August 2014‎

I have removed the image, but didn't upload any replacement for now. This is because the proposed Flickr image is all rights reserved and the copyright status of the collectSPACE images is unclear. If you think the image is a fake, than you should nominate it for deletion on Commons. Armbrust The Homunculus 18:36, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

I just got back to Yogya and I am both ill and facing internet issues. Would you be able to schedule a couple POTDs? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:21, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

@Crisco 1492: Sorry, but I can't help you with that. I could choose the images, but writing blurbs is something I rather not do. Armbrust The Homunculus 18:45, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Alright. In that case, if possible could you pick a week's worth of images (I'm getting a bit better), and I'll handle the blurbs. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:41, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
@Crisco 1492: Yes check.svg Done I have added images until the end of September. Armbrust The Homunculus 08:10, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm feeling a bit better, so I should be able to work through some blurbs tomorrow. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 08:14, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Great. BTW what do you think about the selections? Armbrust The Homunculus 08:19, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Well spaced and well selected. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 08:27, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

FP and footnotes...[edit]

Hi Armbrust- Not that I plan to ramble needlessly, but is there a way to use one or two footnotes in a FP nomination - without screwing up other things? Thanks -Godot13 (talk) 02:19, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

@Godot13: Yeah, there is. Just add {{reflist|group=n}} at the end of the nomination, but above the categories. Armbrust The Homunculus 08:13, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks!-Godot13 (talk) 18:17, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
