HELLO Heading here, but remove 'display: none;' on row (above; leave just '|-')

In general, I prefer to keep conversation threads together, so if you leave me a message here, I will usually reply here, and leave you a {{talkback}} notification. If I leave you a message, I will keep an eye on your talkpage, but my watchlist has a lot of pages on it, so if I don't reply as expected, please give me a nudge here.

Your work at GTC[edit]

Hi there. An article you brought to GA status (Beyond the Sea) is part of a proposed Good Topic nomination, as part of the first season of the series. Just a heads-up to let you know about this in case you would like to be involved. Your username will be credited as one of the editors responsible for the articles unless you'd rather it not be. I'll not move forward with the nomination until I hear back from you in case there's anything you'd like to add or change. Thanks! GRAPPLE X 16:46, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

I'm quite happy to be credited for 1/25 of it or whatever. :) It looks like you've put a lot of good work in there in getting them up to scratch, so well done. I'm not sure I'll have time to be involved as such although I will keep an eye out. Good luck! --BelovedFreak 17:32, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Extenison?[edit]

Do you mind if we have a time extension of Poppy? It's just the other user who nominated it, is really busy at the moment- and hopefully we be 'unbusy' in a few days. Thanks, - MayhemMario 18:48, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Yes that's absolutely fine. I saw that you've done some work on it already, but was waiting for that work to be complete before I check it over again. I'll keep an eye on the review page. --BelovedFreak 20:52, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

infoboxes and lists[edit]

Hi, I hope you are well, a couple of things:

I like the infobox you used on Martholme, I’ve just put one on Browsholme Hall. I noticed that the coordinates where a little odd so I’ve had a dig around and found a better way of doing them.
What are your thoughts on the creation of a List of Scheduled Monuments in Lancashire, this one from Manchester seems pretty good.

--Trappedinburnley (talk) 18:20, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing that. I like that list and think a Lancashire one would be a Good Thing. Do you fancy starting one, or would you like me to start it off? --BelovedFreak 18:28, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
(Intruding) I've had a go at those in Cheshire at List of Scheduled Monuments in Cheshire dated to before 1066, List of Scheduled Monuments in Cheshire (1066–1539), and List of Scheduled Monuments in Cheshire since 1539. I'm not convinced that this is the best way to do it, but it may give some ideas for a Lancashire list/s. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 19:21, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the input, I’m happy for anyone else to take the lead on this. At the moment I’m trying to get my head around the data. Heritage List for England whould seem to be a good source, but I can't easily compaire it with the other lists. 136 results would seem just about managable in one article. Sticking a similar search into Pastscape gives me 6145 results! Any ideas? --Trappedinburnley (talk) 20:07, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the input and ideas Peter. I don't mind having a go at starting a list TiB, but it will take some time to get something complete enough to go live. My WP time's a bit hit and miss at the moment, and there are some other things I want to work on, but I interested in this. If I start it in a sandbox then you can help out if you feel like it. I'm not quite sure how to go about sourcing yet. How did you get 136 results from the National Heritage List for England site? I can't work out how to search for them on there. Pity we don't have a nice Lancs equivalent to the Revealing Cheshire's Past site. --BelovedFreak 21:05, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
The heritage list search is a bit of a pig. I can’t link directly to results, but if you select Lancashire (county) in location and scheduling in the heritage category, you should see what I got. I have since realised that we’d need to add Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool to those results, and that one or two Cumbria results seem to have crept in. To compare with Cheshire it seems we need to do 2 searches, one for Cheshire East = 107 results, and one for Cheshire West and Chester = 117 results (both District/Unitary Authority/Borough). I know how you feel, that’s exactly why I’m looking for some help with it. If you sort out the structure I’ll try to contribute on the data?--Trappedinburnley (talk) 21:34, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I've made a start here. I think it may be an even bigger task than I thought because the English Heritage list doesn't seem to have descriptions for all the monuments. Anyway, I've started, and added at least one per section, so I hope it gives you something to work with. I've put them into borough sections for now, but it may be that we need to split them into different articles like the Cheshire ones if there are too many. There don't seem to be any in Blackpool (no surprise there) or Fylde. I'll try to add more, but hopefully you'll be able to add some info to what's there (if you want). I'm not sure about coordinates, maybe one of the other EH websites will help us there. --BelovedFreak 22:40, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
I fear that you are correct, this will take a long time! The entries do seem to contain OS Grid Refs (SD) that can be converted. I did one at Streetmap, but you need to remove the spaces when searching and then convert the coordinates at the bottom of the map. I can’t see that getting old very fast at all :( Another problem I’ve run into is that Pastscape doesn’t seem to contain entries for all of the results on the Heritage list. Finally most of them seem to be in my neck of the woods, so I can’t even shift the responsibility! Oh well, I guess we’ll just have to chip away at it as time permits. Thanks for your help --Trappedinburnley (talk) 00:02, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
Of course it's a hard long job (don't I know it?), but interesting; it's amazing what's out there. Are you aware of the template {{NHLE |num= |desc= |accessdate= }}? Easy and quick to use for the National Heritage List. I'm not sure what you use for finding coordinates; I'm currently using this; USA-based but pretty good on the whole at finding even small places (advice: include the county as well as a place name in the search box — otherwise you may find yourself in USA). I agree that the lack of some descriptive details is an annoyance, but the GRs are useful (if stuck, you can abbreviate them to 2 letters and 6 digits and search in Streetmap. Enjoy (as they say), --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 09:40, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
Definitely interesting and, I'm sure, worth it in the end. Thanks for those tips. I didn't know we had a dedicated template for that site. I think this is something that might have slow progress, but I'm sure we'll end up with a good list eventually. --BelovedFreak 09:53, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
(This talk page is still on my watchlist due to previous conversations.) For what it's worth, I've found http://www.nearby.org.uk/ to be a quick and easy site for coordinate conversions. -- Dr Greg  talk  14:03, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

GA reviews[edit]

Hey Belovedfreak,

Since you seem to do a lot of GA reviews, could you see if mine are fine? Thanks.

HurricaneFan25 17:01, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Just from a quick glance, they look fine, but I'll have a closer look and make any suggestions that occur to me tomorrow. --BelovedFreak 21:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Discussion on linking to streamed copies of albums[edit]

Wikipedia policy allows us to link to legal streamed copies of albums. It would be useful to draw up a guideline on how and when to link to such albums; however, there is concern that it may not be appropriate as the music would not be available in all parts of the world. Is the benefit of having access to the music for most users outweighed by the fact that some users will follow a link to find the music is not playable in their region? Your view would be helpful at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Albums. SilkTork ✔Tea time 01:54, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

J. S. Crowther[edit]

Christmas Greetings! Having been inspired by your article on this architect I decided to have a go at compiling a list of the significant works that I could find. The result is here. The format I have used is that of a number of lists I have used that have been successful at FLC. IMO this should be combined with the article you have started; do you agree? If so I'm not sure what would be the best way to do it; any ideas? Indeed it may turn out to be more a list-article rather than an article say, like List of works by Thomas Harrison or List of works by Thomas Lockwood. Any thoughts? No rush; after Christmas/New Year will be fine. Have a good break. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 10:12, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi Peter, looks good as usual. :) As it (J. S. Crowther) stands, it doesn't contain anything that wouldn't be included in the lead of a FL, so I suppose they could be combined, perhaps with J. S. Crowther as a redirect to the list until there is enough for a proper, developed separate article. Is that the kind of thing you meant? I've been a bit absent around here of late, swamped with real life type stuff and sometimes just logging on to check my watchlist. I'm hoping I'll be able to get stuck into something on WP this holiday period, but I can't tell yet if it's going to be more or less busy! Anyway, good luck with the list and let me know if you want any comments on it at any point. Merry Christmas! --BelovedFreak 20:18, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the comment. I should be happy to combine the two in the way I have done previously,(ie as in my last message) if that's OK by you, but maybe not until the New Year. Some of the citations will I think have to be amended so that they are all in a similar format, but that shouldn't be a problem. Have a happy time. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 21:47, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
Happy New Year. OK, I've done it, with a few minor amendments, and some tweaks to the refs. Hope it's OK by you; if not please improve it. Cheers. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 14:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Happy new year to you (if we can still say that). Looks like you've done a good job there.--BelovedFreak 12:03, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Monuments[edit]

Hi, I hope you are well. I plan to spend a bit more time on the ancient monuments list over the break, and was wondering how to progress. I could continue filling the rest if the tables as I have been doing, or would you rather split it on an east / west basis, in which case I’ll start fleshing out the stuff I’ve already done? --Trappedinburnley (talk) 10:21, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi, you may have noticed I've not done anything else on the monuments, been very busy (see above!). As to your question, I don't mind at all which way you attack it. If you'd rather stick to the areas you're familiar with, that's fine. :) We'll have to dig out some more sources at some point. --BelovedFreak 20:21, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Edmund Sharpe[edit]

I have spent a lot of time recently on this article about the man who founded the Lancaster architectural practice that became "Paley and Austin" with many variations of those names. As you know, they designed many of the 19th and 20th-century churches in the Northwest. Sharpe was also involved in many other ventures. I have submitted it today as a FAC here and you may like to have a look at the article, and also make comments if you wish. Cheers. --Peter I. Vardy (talk) 14:49, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Gary Graff[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Gary Graff requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mdann52 (talk) 15:53, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Help with Latvian mythology[edit]

Hi Belovedfreak,

A few other editors and I are involved in a discussion at Talk:Latvian mythology#Latvian mythology or Baltic mythology? about whether Latvian mythology (and, by extension, other Baltic mythology articles like Lithuanian mythology) are deserving of their own articles or whether they should be merged into Baltic mythology, which should be written to explain the similarities and differences between them?

You seem to be involved with WP:Wikiproject Mythology and your knowledge of writing mythology articles could be a great help in our discussion.

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Loose shoes.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Loose shoes.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Werieth (talk) 17:15, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link fixing one-day contest[edit]

I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 01:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

just a wee smile of appreciation[edit]

I wanted to let you know that as a newbie I often look in the edits history of articles to teach myself how to be a better editor, what 'mistakes' have been made in articles so I can spot them myself and hopefully help improve articles down the line when I'm more confident of my editing skills. Quite often I see your name in the edit list where you have made an edit, sometimes just for little wee things an apostrophe here a full stop there. Or when it's been a larger edit or deletion of text, if it's queried you seem to always let the author know quickly and succinctly why you have made those changes, I find you to be polite and honest. As a budding editor I look up to you, and wanted to let you know that the work you do quietly in the background is appreciated Amanda138a (talk) 13:18, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, that's very kind, especially considering I'm not very active here at the moment. :) --BelovedFreak 17:36, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Missy Higgins[edit]

I've just expanded her Awards section into an Awards and nominations section. Is there a need for a new article? i.e. List of awards and nominations received by Missy Higgins.shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 07:06, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Good job. :) I suppose there's enough for a spinout article now. I've not been hugely active here lately, so not really sure what's going on. --BelovedFreak 21:43, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

May 2014 disambig contest: let's do it again![edit]

Greetings fellow disambiguator! Remember back in February when we made history by clearing the board for the first time ever, for the monthly disambiguation contest? Let's do it again in May! I personally will be aiming to lead the board next month, but for anyone who thinks they can put in a better effort, I will give a $10 Amazon gift card to any editor who scores more disambiguation points in May. Also, I will be setting up a one-day contest later in the month, and will try to set up more prizes and other ways to make this a fun and productive month. Cheers! bd2412 T 18:47, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Belovedfreak. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 15:59, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
