Why did you remove it? Its a WP:VITAL article, its been in dispute for years. Giving it the widest possible coverage is useful and makes it much more likely to avoid having to go to arbitration.

WikiCup 2011 July newsletter

Trophy.png

The finals are upon us; we're down to the last few. One of the eight remaining contestants will be this year's WikiCup champion! 150 was the score needed to progress to the final; just under double the 76 required to reach round 4, and more than triple the 41 required to reach round 3. Our eight finalists are:

  • Scotland Casliber (submissions), Pool A's winner. Casliber has the highest total score in the competition, with 1528, the bulk of which is made up of 8 featured articles. He has the highest number of total featured articles (8, 1 of which was eligible for double points) and total did you knows (72) of any finalist. Casliber writes mostly on biology, including ornithology, botany and mycology.
  • Russia PresN (submissions), Pool B's winner and the highest scorer this round. PresN is the only finalist who has scored featured topic points, and he has gathered an impressive 330, but most of his points come from his 4 featured articles, one of which scored double. PresN writes mostly on video games and the Hugo Awards.
  • Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions), Pool A's runner-up. Hurricanehink's points are mostly from his 30 good articles, more than any other finalist, and he is also the only finalist to score good topic points. Hurricanehink, as his name suggests, writes mostly on meteorology.
  • Ohio Wizardman (submissions), Pool B's runner-up. Wizardman has completed 86 good article reviews, more than any other finalist, but most of his points come from his 2 featured articles. Wizardman writes mostly on American sport, especially baseball.
  • Principality of Sealand Miyagawa (submissions), the "fastest loser" (Pool A). Miyagawa has written 3 featured lists, one of which was awarded double points, more than any other finalist, but he was awarded points mostly for his 68 did you knows. Miyagawa writes on a variety of topics, including dogs, military history and sport.
  • Canada Resolute (submissions), the second "fastest loser" (Pool B). Most of Resolute's points come from his 9 good articles. He writes mostly on Canadian topics, including ice hockey.
  • Greece Yellow Evan (submissions), who was joint third "fastest loser" (Pool A). Most of Evan's points come from his 10 good articles, and he writes mostly on meteorology.
  • Australia Sp33dyphil (submissions), who was joint third "fastest loser" (Pool B). Most of Phil's points come from his 9 good articles, 4 of which (more than any other finalist) were eligible for double points. He writes mostly on aeronautics.

We say goodbye to our seven other semi-finalists, Flag of Portland, Oregon.svg Another Believer (submissions), Poland Piotrus (submissions), United Kingdom Grandiose (submissions), Bavaria Stone (submissions), Norway Eisfbnore (submissions), Saskatchewan Canada Hky (submissions) and Wisconsin MuZemike (submissions). Everyone still in the competition at this stage has done fantastically well, and contributed greatly to Wikipedia. We're on the home straight now, and we will know our winner in two months.

In other news, preparations for next year's competition have begun with a brainstorming thread. Please, feel free to drop by and share any thoughts you have about how the competition should work next year. Sign ups are not yet open, but will be opened in due course. Watch this space. Further, there has been a discussion about the rule whereby those in the WikiCup must delcare their participation when nominating articles at featured article candidates. This has resulted in a bot being created by new featured article delegate Ucucha (talk · contribs). The bot will leave a message on FAC pages if the nominator is a participant in the WikiCup.

A reminder of the rules: any points scored after August 29 may be claimed for the final round, and please remember to update submission pages promptly. If you are concerned that your nomination, be it at good article candidates, a featured process or anywhere else, will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews. However, please remember to continue to offer reviews at GAC, FAC and all the other pages that require them to prevent any backlogs which could otherwise be caused by the Cup.

Templates added to Ironman articles

I noticed that you added {{Refimprove}} templates to the various Ironman series articles, including 2011 Ironman 70.3 World Championship‎. Are you challenging the race results in the article or the other content? The reason I ask is because race results are not listed in one central location or WTC results database (like, for instance, ITU events) but instead in individual race website databases or news coverage of individual events. If this is the material you're challenging, you've requested upwards of 150 to 200 new individual inline citations on material I would personally do not consider contentious or likely to be challenged (but perhaps I'm mistaken on this last point). I'm looking to avoid mindless and tedious editing to correct this as I suspect there would be no other willing participants to do the work necessary to remove the templates. Thanks. BarkeepChat/$ 18:25, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

No I don't challenge the result on any of these pages, but someone other could do. The point is that they lack references. For example if an IP would changes names in one of the articles, than how would you know, that this is vandalism and not correcting wrong names. There is no need for inline citations, you can use the method for example on 2010–11 FIS Ski Jumping World Cup. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 08:29, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
I would actually prefer to avoid that style of citation as it doesn't follow any manual of style for citations that I know of (but I might be wrong), is prone to link rot, and generally appears to reflect a lack of effort on the editors part in adding complete citations. Regardless, care to help me fix this error you've helped identify? BarkeepChat/$ 03:58, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Of course I'm willing to help. You just have to place the links of results somewhere (for example there, ordered by season). Oh and I agree with you about this citation style. It's not optimal, but at least every information is referenced and they could be converted to proper citations (if somebody really wants it).

Cuetracker links removed

Hi, I provided a few links to statistics websites for snooker tournaments/players, and you removed them with reason 'not needed'. I wonder why this is, and what the difference is between my page (I own the website I posted), and the other pages that are listed in external links. My page offers a lot of statistics that the others do not, and the others actually contain broadly the same info. Please let me know what I did wrong, and how I can help the community by providing this information. All the best, Ron (Visionaire87 (talk) 21:44, 5 September 2011 (UTC))

The problem with this external links on player articles is that: (1) If you want to add links to statistics of the current season, than you have to update them for every season. But the other external links are stable and don't need continually updating. (2) If you want add links to every season (I assume you will not stop adding dates from earlier to the website won't stop), would clutter the external links section of articles. There is also a conflict of interest for you and one could say you just added this links to promote your website. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 07:28, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. "(1) If you want to add links to statistics of the current season, than you have to update them for every season." What exactly do you mean by update for every season? I had linked to players results and statistics on the player wiki's and tournament/season stats on their wikis. If all results for the current season are logged I fail to see the stability issue you find. I also fail to see how this would be considered clutter, as you currently have links (going to WWWsnooker, WorldSnooker, ProSnookerBlog and GlobalSnooker) on several pages which show the same results as my page does, however mine does show a lot more statistics that the others do not. How do you then determine that mine is cluttering up the links, while it shows something more than the current ones there? The COI-issue I can see, however since I am not making any money from this site, and the whole reason I started it is to share information and make statistics accessible to everyone at no charge, I feel this would be very valuable to Wikipedia readers, and even from the short time the links were present could already see several wiki users clicking them (including yourself I believe based on location). I respect your opinion and decision, however I feel that I am actually offering a lot additional to the articles that I posted links in, something that would genuinely give people a source of more valuable information, which after all is what Wikipedia is all about. I await your reply with interest. Kind regards, Ron (Visionaire87 (talk) (08:25, 6 September 2011 (UTC))
It looks like you didn't carefully read, what I wrote. Firstly I sayed if you want, that the link points to the current seasons stats, than you have to update the link for at the beginning of the season and therefore this link wouldn't be stable. Secondly I said if you want to add links to every seasons stats (I assume there won't be just three seasons on the webpage). And by the way no external links section has more than one link to the same website. They would be useful if the website would have pages, where the stats for every season are present at the same time. If this would exist, than I even would be help to add such links. It's also interesting to note, that these links were only added for top players (such as Ronnie O'Sullivan or Mark Williams), and not for lesser known players (Kurt Maflin or Zhang Anda) Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 08:40, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I see your point, I apologize for the confusion. Regarding the season stats, for example the current season (2011/2012). The link is this. The link will stay the same, although of course the page itself would feature more information as the season progresses. Season 2010/2011 is now complete, and shows a more complete picture. I believe this would be what you mean with "pages, where the stats for every season are present at the same time". Otherwise, you might be helped by the pages on here. Also, most pages have year/season selectors on them. If this is not what you mean by that, then I must be misunderstanding, apologies for that. The reason I only added them for the main players so far, was that a) it would all be manual work, and as there is currently just under 1000 players in my database I have to start somewhere. The main players would make most people aware of the site, and would let them easily access the statistics for players they want. b) I did not want to get blocked for spamming either. It was never my intention to spam or to promote my own site, simply to provide access to what I believe is, and with more tournaments being added every day, will increasingly be, a valuable resource. (Visionaire87 (talk) 08:53, 6 September 2011 (UTC))
Not exactly. I mean for example this page shows O'Sullivan's stats for the 2011/2012 season, but it would be more useful for the Wikipedia article about him, if there was one page which would contain O'Sullivan's stats from every season present in this database (this link currently doesn't work). This would be really valuable and I would support such addition. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 09:02, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I see. The link actually shows stats and such for his all-time record (once all results from the past are added in of course), the reason it has the &year=2011 behind it is purely for the match results on the left hand side of the page. It shows stats for all-time, but not all match results on one page, as that page would become so long that it would be difficult to read. I therefore have added the Year and Main Tour Season selectors in the top left-hand corner of the page, to be able to show stats for a certain period only. So in effect, the link does what you ask, with the exception that you have to choose a time period to show match results to improve readability. Would you consider this sufficient? If not, I also have to take into account the load on the servers would be huge to display a page with not only all stats as done now, but also all match results for a player like O'Sullivan, who will have thousands of matches on his record once all is complete. Also, what of, for example, the tournament pages (for example this and its corresponding ranking page this). I would love to work out a way to add these, and am willing to work with you to achieve something that works :) (Visionaire87 (talk) 09:57, 6 September 2011 (UTC))
Well the readability could be maintained by creating a base page which contains the stats on the left side of the page and a selection part for the actual player on the right side of the page (where currently if you choose some time period the matches are listed). This way it would become a general player profile without problems with readability or server loading time. As for tournament pages and the corresponding ranking pages, they have very little information, which isn't currently present in the articles or references. For example the extra information in this is, that the century breaks of the qualifying rounds are at the matches in them they were compiled. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 10:22, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
That I won't be able to do, as I believe that while this may work for a Wikipedia link, it would be very confusing for general visitors to the site. Also, I want to combine all information on one page, which is why I created it in this way in the first place. I believe the page the way it is would stil add value to the Wiki article, as it actually does show more than the system you are suggesting, and I believe it is also less confusing. I see your point regarding the tournament pages, and will not be adding those to the wiki. Would you allow adding of the season pages, as discussed before, as they do show and link to various statistics? (Visionaire87 (talk) 10:29, 6 September 2011 (UTC))
Would it be possible if nor year, nor season selection was made, that it displays the matches from the current season? As for the season links they could be added, but some corrections would be beneficial. The player links should link to their results in the relevant season and not the most recent/current. For example at the 2009/2010 season the players link to their matches from the 2011, but IMO they should to the matches in the 2009/2010 season. Than Ok, as I already reinstated the link for the current season. The reason for this removal could be expanded to: info about a previous season not needed on this article. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 10:45, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
Regarding the removal reason, I seem to have added the wrong link there, fair enough. I will make the correction you recommended of the player links in the season overview linking to their results for that season. I will also adjust the player page as you described, so that it defaults to the current season. So, just to be clear, if I change it so that http://www.cuetracker.net/pages/players.php?pl=18 shows Ronnie's stats for all-time, as well as his matches for the current season, I can add it to his Wiki page? I will make the corrections tonight. Thanks for working with me! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Visionaire87 (talkcontribs) 11:03, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
If you make these changes, than I would add myself too. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 11:06, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
I have made the changes we discussed, and added links to Ronnie O'Sullivan and Season 2010/2011's article. I hope this is all right with you. If so, please let me know, and I will add some more as I come across them. Please note I will not be able to add huge amounts within a short time period, as I am a bit busy at work unfortunately. Thanks for all your help! (Visionaire87 (talk) 22:05, 6 September 2011 (UTC))
Okay. I just added some links myself to other articles. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 22:35, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
It seems some guy called Sole_Soul has found it necessary to remove some of the links again. I've already tried to ask him why, no reply yet. Is there some sort of control you have over this? (Visionaire87 (talk) 08:08, 9 September 2011 (UTC))
I have no control over this, but I have re-added the links, because the user removed the links without explanation. Regards, Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 08:18, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
Guess I'll have to leave adding links to you and others, as I'm getting too much flak from other moderators who only look at the spamming rules, and not at the actual content of the page. I unfortunately don't have time to convince them of the point you already see. Thanks for your help anyway! (Visionaire87 (talk) 15:16, 9 September 2011 (UTC))

Screenshot of Windows Defender on Windows 8

Hello Armbrust. I am afraid I have to remove your recently uploaded screenshot of Windows Defender on Windows 8 since it violates most of Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria policy, including but not limited to #1, #8 and #10. Generally speaking, the rationale for using this non-free image is to help people distinguish it. But Windows 8 is still at pre-beta (= "Developer preview") stage, therefore very few need to visually identify the Windows Defender that comes with Windows 8 while many need to identify the current production version. NFCC #1 and #8 are also violated: Simply saying that Windows Defender in Windows 8 is almost completely similar to Microsoft Security Essentials is enough. (So, as you see, text replaces non-free image.) Fleet Command (talk) 03:41, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Player categories

Just a minor request: When working on a player bio, please make sure that the nationality category for the person exists, and create it (and tag its talk page) if it doesn't exist yet. E.g. Stephan Cohen was (properly) labeled with Category:French pool players, since 2009, but that category didn't exist until tonight, and as a result the WP:CUE project at large didn't even know the article existed. I also just created Category:Italian pool players, since Stefano Pelinga was categorized thus. I'm sure there are other missing categories of this sort (and perhaps some "Category:X snooker players", "Category:X carom billiards players", too), but they are hard to track down. — SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. 06:14, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Trophy.png

We are on this year's home straight, with less than a month to go until the winner of the 2011 WikiCup will be decided. The fight for first place is currently being contested by Principality of Sealand Miyagawa (submissions), Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions) and Australia Sp33dyphil (submissions), all of whom have over 200 points. This round has already seen multiple featured articles (1991 Atlantic hurricane season from Hurricanehink and Northrop YF-23 from Sp33dyphil) and a double-scoring featured list (Miyagawa's 1948 Summer Olympics medal table). The scores will likely increase far further before the end of the round on October 31 as everyone ups their pace. There is not much more to say- thoughts about next year's competition are welcome on the WikiCup talk page or the scoring talk page, and signups will open once a few things have been sorted out.

Tatiana Woollaston

FYI... they changed the rules on WP:BLPPROD again. No longer do you need a reliable reference, but now all you need is any reference. So, under new rules, her website counts as a reference. Bgwhite (talk) 06:31, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 07:39, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Tatiana article has been corrected in accordance with all requirements. It was supplemented by several references to official sources, such as WPBSA site (Official website of World Snooker Association). Link to article User:DmitryYakunin/Tatiana Woollaston. Could you restore this article? DmitryYakunin (talk) 17:03, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but this isn't enough. In order to be included in the encyclopaedia there needs to be multiple reliable sources, which discuss the subject in depth and are independent from it, but the draft only has one. Facebook and blogs aren't reliable, and this doesn't discuss her in depth. Sir Armbrust Talk to me Contribs 17:13, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
Added links to EBSA (European Billiards & Snooker Association) and BSF (Belarussian Snooker Federation), which contains official information about date of birth, education, referee career. Now we have a reference to the three snooker associations - World (WPBSA), European (EBSA) and Belarusian (BSF). DmitryYakunin (talk) 18:04, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
I have taken a deeper look in the page. Many of the sources don't support, what is on the page. These were marked with [not in citation given]. Also the EBSA source is again just a passing mention in a list. If you think you have corrected these issues, than add {{subst:AFC submission/submit}} to the page and it will be reviewed.

Steve Job's Bio Book

Hello, you recently removed the book cover picture from Steve Jobs. That picture was lifted from Steve Jobs (biography) where the placement is OK -- not a screenshot of Apple's website. Where do I write a rationale for its use? Shencypeter (talk) 01:43, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

The placement of the picture is okay on Steve Jobs (biography), because the article discusses the book in detail. It's use on Steve Jobs fails the non-free content criteria, because the article lacks critical commentary about the image and File:Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.jpg, doesn't have a non-free rationale either.

WikiCup 2011 October newsletter

Trophy.png

The 2011 WikiCup is now over, and our new champion is Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions), who joins the exclusive club of the previous winners: Dreamafter (2007), jj137 (2008), Durova (2009) and Sturmvogel_66 (2010). The final standings were as follows:

  1. Zanzibar Hurricanehink (submissions)
  2. Australia Sp33dyphil (submissions)
  3. Greece Yellow Evan (submissions)
  4. Principality of Sealand Miyagawa (submissions)
  5. Ohio Wizardman (submissions)
  6. Scotland Casliber (submissions)
  7. Canada Resolute (submissions)
  8. Russia PresN (submissions)

Prizes for first, second, third and fourth will be awarded, as will prizes for all those who reached the final eight. Every participant who scored in the competition will receive a ribbon of participation. In addition to the prizes based on placement, the following special prizes will be awarded based on high performance in particular areas of content creation. So that the finalists do not have an undue advantage, the prize is awarded to the competitor who scored the highest in any particular field in a single round.

No prize was awarded for featured pictures, sounds or portals, as none were claimed throughout the competition. The awards will be handed out over the next few days. Congratulations to all our participants, and especially our winners; we've all had fun, and Wikipedia has benefitted massively from our content work.

Preparation for next year's WikiCup is ongoing. Interested parties are invited to sign up and participate in our straw polls. It's been a pleasure to work with you all this year, and, whoever's taking part in and running the competition in 2012, we hope to see you all in January!

G4 RfC

Thank you for assessing the consensus at the G4 RfC. I have some suggestions about your closure:

  • Close Wikipedia talk:Criteria for speedy deletion#G4 and subsequent XfDs with {{discussion top}} and {{discussion bottom}} with a link pointing to your close at the bottom. Perhaps use something like This discussion is closed. See [[#Is CSD G4 applicable or inapplicable to a previously kept page whose most recent discussion ended in deletion?|my close below]]. ~~~~
  • You wrote: "During the discussion the idea of expiration date came up, but there is no consensus on how many time this should be."
  • The sentence's wording makes it seem as if there was a consensus for an expiration date but that there was no consensus on what the expiration date should be.

    I don't think this is accurate. Would you reword it to something like:

    During the discussion, several editors proposed that G4 would expire after a set period of time had elapsed from the AfD discussion. There was insufficient participation and discussion about this issue, so there is neither a consensus for an expiration date nor a consensus for how long the expiration date should be. This issue can be ironed out in a new discussion by interested editors.

2011 Grand Slam of Darts Statistics

About Hossein Vafaei

I am quite sure that the winner of IBSF World Snooker Championship will get the permission into the Main Snooker Tour of the following season. But it seems we do not have the agreement about that. If you check the status of the winners of 2009 IBSF World Snooker Championship and 2010 IBSF World Snooker Championship, both started their professional career for the season after their wins. Alfred Burden the winner of 2009 IBSF World Snooker Championship started his professional career from 2010/2011 World Tour as you can check here. And Dechawat Poomjaeng the winner of 2010 IBSF World Snooker Championship started his professional career from 2011/2012 World Tour as you can check here.

As I said this is speculation. There are examples, that the qualification criteria can change: (1) For the previous two seasons England could nominate two players for the Main Tour (Pro Ticket Tour Number One and Pro Ticket Play-Offs winner), but for the current season only one. (2) For at least two season the was one place allocated for the winner of the Oceania Championship, but this place was withdrawn after the 2009/2010 season.

Hi There. Thanks for your help/comments on Consumer Choices - much appreciated. Can I ask, is it all the external links you feel should be removed, or just some of them? We included them really as we thought it gave a good overview of other companies in the marketplace etc, but we are more than happy to pull them, especially if you feel it would make the Wiki page better. Perhaps we should leave the Ofcom one though? As that's the UK telecoms regulatory body (then again, it is in the refs list, so maybe even pull that?). I am happy to do as you suggest, and if I could get you opinion, I would really value it - not just for this page, but it would help me to better understand the way things should be done in the future ;) Once again, thanks for your time... much appreciated!

The official website of this award is forum? Sorry, but this is neither third-party not reliable. I will not withdraw the nomination, because I can't find the necessary third-party reliable sources to pass the general notability guideline.

Template: Video game screenshot rationale

Hi there. Just noticed you moved Template:Video game rationale to Template:Video game screenshot rationale and said it's not to be used for covers. I just wanted to know where the discussion was that decided this? I created that template originally and had intended it to handle any kind of non-free image related to video games, including box covers, logos and screenshots. It seems rather limiting to make it screenshot-only. — KieferSkunk (talk) — 23:49, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

FYI, I've moved the template back to its original location for the time being and started up a discussion there. I couldn't find any place where this had been previously discussed - please point me to it if a prior discussion exists, or feel free to leave a message in the new discussion. :) — KieferSkunk (talk) — 06:51, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

1994 WC snooker final

OK, I'll add then the link to the last frames of the 1994 WC final between Hendry and White. Hope that you won't remove it. 89.41.103.17 (talk) 17:37, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

If you don't try to use it as a reference and it isn't a torrent site, than I won't remove it. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 17:38, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Good, you should have explained that from the start. There is actually another video, with more frames (and audio and video synchronized), but the quality is worse: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMjIyNDY5MDAw.html 89.41.103.17 (talk) 17:50, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Please decide, which one should be used. Please don't bloat the external links section with videos. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 17:54, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
That's why I asked you first. Let it be YouTube then, the quality is much better there. 89.41.103.17 (talk) 17:58, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Portal:Current events/Sports

If it isn't an article, why is all of its material article-style content? Especially since the editting instructions ask you to cite sources. --Falcadore (talk) 05:06, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

It it is an article, than why it is in the portal namespace? As far as I know there isn't any policy/guideline, which defines how a portal have to look like. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 05:10, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
As Current events/Sports is a child of Current Events, I think the template is built in. Current Events edittors don't have any problem with referencing. --Falcadore (talk) 07:02, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Well this is true, but P:CE don't have this many entries as P:CE/S. By the way I think the proper place to discuss this would be at Portal talk:Current events/Sports. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 07:38, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Or maybe CE/S has too many, which has been another point I've unsuccesfully raise as those contributing to the page presently actively seek to maintain the present state of affairs regardless of what happens elsewhere in Wikipedia. --Falcadore (talk)
Maybe, or maybe not. It looks like to me, that you're the only one, who don't like it. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 11:01, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
That does not invalidate anything I've said. It may just say that nobody who currently contributes cares about Wikipedias standards. Should laziness be encouraged?
And very seriously, what about verfiability? Some of these results could be made up and no-one would know any different. --Falcadore (talk) 02:04, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Not only does Wikipedia:Portal not say that Portals don't need refencing, it specifically demands compliance with Wikipedia:Verifiability. --Falcadore (talk) 11:07, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
Further discussion, I think, should take place at the portals talk page. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 11:09, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Portal#Purpose of the Portal space

Hi Armbrust. Would you explain your edit here? Wikipedia talk:Portal#Purpose of the Portal space hasn't been closed or assessed for whether a close is appropriate. Cunard (talk) 06:51, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

The entry was removed from WP:ANRFC in this edit by OhanaUnited (talk · contribs) and after I seen it, I decided to archive the entry. Armbrust Talk to me about my editsreview 07:36, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation. I will restore the closure request because OhanaUnited has made a mistake. Cunard (talk) 01:05, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

2012 IM 70.3

You placed an {{update}} tag on the 2012 Ironman 70.3 World Championship. What is in need of updating? There is nothing noted in the edit summary or on the article's talk page as to what this is referring to. Thanks BarkeepChat/$ 19:00, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

According to the qualifying schedule the Ironman 70.3 Canberra took place on December 11, 2011. Either the results are missing or the schedule is out of date, I don't know, but couldn't find the results. Armbrust, B.Ed. Let's talk aboutabout my edits? 19:44, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
Results can be found here and here. Feel free to help update, otherwise I'll get to it a few days. BarkeepChat/$ 21:05, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Ronnie O'Sullivan article

I just found that footnote 15, re O'Sullivan's assault on a match official, is a dead link. The Times piece it refers to is simply not available. But I have no idea what to do about it re the WP article. Would you mind following up, please? Ta. Happy New Year, btw. 121.220.35.93 (talk) 00:18, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

I fund the article on The Times homepage and changed the link. The new link, however, requires subscription to be accessed. Armbrust, B.Ed. Let's talk aboutabout my edits? 01:19, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Originally link was restored. It looks like someone had an archived link for it. Armbrust, B.Ed. Let's talk aboutabout my edits? 01:48, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Akamai Logo Edit

Hi there, Thanks for making the change requested to the Akamai Logo page (File:Akamai_logo.svg). One question -- when I click on the logo on that page, it brings me back to the old logo as an image. Is there any way to change the click-through link as well? Also, how do I get it to change on this page: Akamai_Technologies? Thanks for your help! 173.51.122.21 (talk) 18:48, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

I think this is a caching issue. Read WP:CACHE on how to bypass you cache. Armbrust, B.Ed. Let's talk aboutabout my edits? 18:50, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
