hello Bub[edit]

How's the library business? You'll see that I flicked a crumb off the surface of that Châteauesque article, which you seem to have adopted, in your legendary fashion. D is damn near halfway through law school and honing her skills on "Litigation: the Home Game", but still retains some reassuring gaps in her knowledge. It's growing colder at night and Portland around Homecoming looks like a Norman Rockwell autumn, achingly photogenic, if you can picture a Norman Rockwell autumn peopled by whippet-thin hepcats with sideburns, tattooed piercings and heavy black-frame glasses. Life is rich and strange. There are actually adult kickball leagues up here. Hope you're well, truly. --Lockley (talk) 08:03, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Quick reverts[edit]

See here I use Huggle (which I actually just tested out for the first time. It's very handy for quick reverts and warnings. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 22:37, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Meaning Huggle just reverts stuff fast; it's pretty easy to use and if you want, you can download it yourself and give it a try (as long as you have rollback rights.) I would like to gently suggest that you consider archiving your talk page as it's getting a bit long and approaching browser-breaking size. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 22:43, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Archiving This is how I do it and I have a template that you can copy and amend if you want. Let me know if this is still unclear. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 22:48, 13 October 2010 (UTC)


Niehaus[edit]

That's a great photo of the bas-relief! I've been on a wild-goose chase. The U.S. Senate website mentions an equestrian statue of Grant for NYC by Niehaus, but I think it's a mistake. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 16:43, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

My guess is the one by William Ordway Partridge.
Not to harp on something that may already be resolved (February 2011), but what is your source for Edmond Amateis having carved the pedimental sculpture for the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society? The Buffalo Architecture site is confusing and contradictory. Did the pediment remain blank from 1901 to the 1927-29 expansion of the building? I e-mailed BECHS in the hope of a definitive answer. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 13:43, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Here is the deal about this. First of all, it comes from these guys. [1]. Now you would do well to ask, "So who these guys, and I can't find that info on this site anyway?" to which I'd reply, "Well. no, that information is on the "You need a password (actually, two) to find that info there, and those guys are okay and here is a section from their correspondance with the folks in Buffalo, who wrote,
"Thank you for your interest in our building.  Edward Amateis executed sculptural plaques that were added to the exterior of our building in 1929 and is credited in one of our publications with the pediment as well (1930): http:// -- tinyurl.com/45qbc5p"
Does that help? Oh yes, one more thing. Neither Amateis not Niehaus "carved" anything. That was probably done by the Piccirilli Brothers.

Another fascinating factoid. When I tried to post this it turned out that http:// -- tinyurl.com/45qbc5p is on a wikipedia span blocked list? WTF? So I added two -- in the middle and you'll have to cut and paste if you want to check it. Life is just too strange sometimes Carptrash (talk) 20:33, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. That makes sense. The pedimental sculpture seems a bit too Art Deco to me to be Turn-of-the-Century. I'll share what BECHS says if they e-mail me back, and fix everything in the articles.
BTW, I notice you've been contributing to the Niehaus article for more than 6 years.[!] Me, I'm still a rookie. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:16, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
The curator at BECHS just e-mailed me back, saying that he thinks the sculptor of the pediment was Amateis. Their library is closed today, but he'll try to get a referenced source tomorrow. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 15:21, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
I changed "carved" to "modeled". I am impress with how many of the images I've added to List of equestrian statues in the United States are yours. Everything from Princeton, New Jersey to Prescott, Arizona. You get around. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 14:25, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Naughty, naughty[edit]

Rohl-Smith, Iowa 3.jpg

Is this the raciest figure ever modeled (not sculpted) for a war memorial? I wonder what John Ashcroft would think. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 22:25, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

As she offers her breasts, it just gets funnier when you read the inscriptions.
Above:
Iowa, her affections, like the rivers of her borders, flow to an inseparable union.
and below:
Iowa's tribute to the courage, patriotism and distinguished service of all her soldiers and sailors who fought in the War of the Rebellion.
Most enjoyable. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:12, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

i WILL confess that I was not sure about posting this one, but, I didn't commission it, make it or even carve it. Just snapped it. I will confess thqat the pose is still a bit puzzling to me. Carptrash (talk) 00:00, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Who knows, maybe your photo will make her famous.
She reminds me of Alexander Stirling Calder, whose statues sometimes got surprisingly sexual, but that was a generation later. Thank you for the Gettysburg equestrian pix. By any chance, did you photograph Frank Furness's 6th PA Cavalry Monument? It's a work I'd like to see better known. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:27, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
WWI Memorial Atlantic City, NJ
Just stopped by to thank you both for the Equestrian list, but perhaps the AC, NJ Memorial is "racier," OTOH it's also gorier. BTW, they do a bit of dairy farming in Iowa. Maybe that explains it? Smallbones (talk) 19:06, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

And while this might seem like both original research and opinion, what the heck. Carptrash (talk) 23:48, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

The Princeton wench must be Peggy Shippen Arnold, whose mad scene, semi-dishabille, discombobulated Washington and convinced him that she couldn't be part of her husband's treason. BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 20:48, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

hat[edit]

It is standard (and accepted) practice to {{hat}} sections of a discussion that are deviating from the purpose of the talk page. It didn't *hide* anything, and there was no "admin" action, just a warning from an admin. In any case, I think that line of discussion has gone on far enough, and it's off-topic, so I'd appreciate if you restored the hat - it doesn't need to be in the talk space for all to see. --Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 17:42, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes. This has nothing to do with "hiding" anything. Drmies (talk) 16:01, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Word to the wise, I hope[edit]

This was really uncalled for. If it was a joke it didn't translate very well, and such comments really just raise the temperature. I think you should know better. Thank you, Drmies (talk) 15:56, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

File:BorglumNCmonument.jpg listed for deletion[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:BorglumNCmonument.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why this is (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry), if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) 14:49, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

By the way, I love your work, no offense about the deletion nomination. I've been moving your images to the Commons so that other wikiprojects can use them as well. Thanks especially for providing the year of creation on the monuments and statues; that helps immensely with copyright issues. All the best, – Quadell (talk) 14:52, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I'm writing The Encyclopedia Of Jerry Garcia Music Venues. I'm interested in using your photo of the Masonic Temple, Detroit. It's too small on Wiki. I'd need it at least 1 mb or larger. Please email me at slipnut01@gmail.com.

Correction to de Weldon and sculpture work by William Bill Petsco[edit]

When I read de Weldon's page I was appalled by the exclusion of my father's work as de Weldon's ghost sculptor and the lack of any reference to William Bill Petsco. My father spent 40 plus years doing de Weldon's statues, if fact I also spent two years working on the Iwo Jima statue at Quantico and the larger one at D.C. You removed my correction's with out contacting me. How do I add the corrections that I had previously made ? John Petsco Sr. SRPETSCO (talk) 23:17, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Relax John, I did contact you on your talk page about 2 minutes after I removed the section that you added. I will post what I am posting here there too. As I recall, you added a long section all in CAPITOLS. That would be removed by any editor who found it. Secondly, you did not provide a source or reference for your posting. That you know this to be true is not enough. We have editors that will tell you that they know that man has never walked on the moon. That the holocaust never happened. Etc. You need to come up with a source to back what you say. I am on your side. I am a sculptor historian and know that this sort of travesty happens a lot. let address it, but we must do so according to wikipedia's guidelines. Carptrash (talk) 23:58, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

Hello Carptrash[edit]

I am trying to imagine what you are like in real life: I think I have a good friends who are a bit similar, and I think we would get on! But honestly, Carptrash, you really, really, really need to stop with the redlinked thing. It just isn't productive or helpful or really in keeping with WP's philosophy that everyone is welcome. I do understand where you are coming from though, so here's a challenge for you. The person I know who might be a bit like is a poet.... he has a rich and imaginative vocabulary which he uses to express his ideas. The next time you feel like writing "redlink" or equivalent, try thinking of an equivalent - such as "inexperienced editor", "a newcomer", "newbie".... I am sure you can do better than me. --Slp1 (talk) 23:22, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

File:Fr. Vigo statue by John Angel.jpg.[edit]

Deleted due to No release received at OTRS for over 30 days. If release does get sent then file can be undeleted.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 01:00, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

That was a really good picture that materially added to the article. Bad result. Tangible loss. This sucks. 7&6=thirteen () 23:31, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

George D. Mason[edit]

Hi! I removed that sentence for two reasons: 1) the concept is already clearly expressed in the biography («In 1878 he joined with Zachariah Rice to form the firm Mason & Rice. This partnership lasted until 1898»); 2) the sentence is basically incorrect (Mason did not design all of the buildings constructed between 1878 and 1898 with Rice: as far as I know, for instance, the Thompson Home was designed only by Mason): as a consequence, I think it is far better if the list precises which commissions were in collaboration with Rice, Brush, or Kahn, one by one. Hope I made myself clear... Markhole (talk) 15:43, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Dear Carptrash...Because the sentence is not the same...I put "one of the greatest"...That means he was in the top of sculptors in the 20th century.Probably one of the best if not the best..That's why i put ONE of the greatest...Not "the greatest" I even changed the sentence where it is said that "he was probably the best sculptor since the renaissance because for some the links "weren't too good"--Scrosby85 19:28, 14 October 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Scrosby85 (talkcontribs)

Harry Kitson[edit]

Please note in Henry Hudson Kitson's page, second paragraph already says he was called Harry.

The insertion of the naming of him only follows what he was called. He traveled under the name of Harry Kitson, Harry H Kitson Henry Hudson Kitson and H H Kitson. His name was never formally changed to Henry Hudson Kitson. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.228.20.11 (talk) 16:29, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

This is good information, but how do you know it? That Harry was his given name? A reference would be good. All the places that I look just say Henry. Carptrash (talk) 17:23, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

American Jews[edit]

Did I violate any rules, or did I falsify history by mentioning Jewish American criminals? Why was that section deleted, its not as if I participated in the bashing of Jews, all I did was list criminals who are Jews with American nationality(only 5 of them, although I could've filled it up with a hundred or more, backed by authentic sources), consequently the crime section was deleted with the reason of "As per the Zionist lobby", when I asked why? the response I got was "orders, are orders" which was followed by a ban on me. How is this tolerated? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.49.101.174 (talk) 17:32, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

First of all, it helps if you register and sign your postings to me, makes carrying on a discussion easier. Then, go to perhaps White Americans and start a list of criminals there. This will demonstrate that your interest is criminology rather than jew-bashing. Then try again, but perhaps leave out the "killing small children" part, which is all I removed. But first register or sigh in. Carptrash (talk) 23:49, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Also, if you put a link to the, "As per the Zionist lobby", and the "orders, are orders" stuff I can look at it and come up with some thoughts. Carptrash (talk) 23:52, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

Click on the View History of the American Jews paged, and you will see it as the listed reasons for the page being locked. When I ask why, it says orders are orders, again on the View History page. Please take a look. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2604:2000:104C:804F:14EE:DE64:1442:F1C0 (talk) 06:53, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Red-linked?[edit]

BTW, what does "red-linked" refer to in your comment at David Vitter?CFredkin (talk) 18:02, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Is the implication that red-linked users are those "who just show up to push a particular POV" defined somewhere? Or did you just make that up?CFredkin (talk) 18:29, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Also, would you agree that my edit which you reverted at David Vitter included the following comment: "Please provide secondary source to indicate significance to Vitter."CFredkin (talk) 18:29, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

So when you included the following comment while reverting my edit: "...unexplained removal of sourced material by red linked editor...", you were making a pejorative claim about another editor and stating something that wasn't really accurate. Right?CFredkin (talk) 19:27, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

That's quite a chip you have on your shoulder. Perhaps therapy would help.CFredkin (talk) 00:07, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Yes. Thank goodness you're here to defend the integrity of Wikipedia. I don't know what we'd do without your name calling and reversions of edits based on delusional rationales. I know it must be frustrating when other people disagree with you and you can't muster the gumption to make your case rationally. So instead you claim that anyone who disrupts your efforts to make the project a vehicle for pushing your POV must be acting with bad intent and use it as an excuse to resort to bullying behavior.CFredkin (talk) 00:44, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Since you have chosen to delete your talk page . . . . . . . . . . . . . ......... again - which is where I was posting, I guess our dialog is at an end, but I must say, the HISTORY link at your talk page did make interesting viewing. Carptrash (talk) 02:41, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

Civic Opera House (Chicago) and Civic Opera Building - now two articles[edit]

Thanks for your note on my talk page re: my changes to the opera house article.

The Civic Opera Building article title existed, but was simply set up as a re-direct to the opera house article. Yesterday, I had intended to do what I've just done - i.e. include the material about the building in the new Civic Opera Building article, since there is a lot that should legitimately be there. But, from the pov of the opera house, who cares about the "Tenants" section or the fact that the building was sold for $125 million, etc, etc.?

So, those interested in adding to the article for architectural reasons can now do so, though, obviously, there could be cross-referencing between the two articles. I hope that this makes sense. Viva-Verdi (talk) 18:40, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Carptrash wikipedia commons category[edit]

Hello, I love your photography! So much so that I went through all the files of yours that got moved to Commons and put them into a category. Letting you know here as you seem less active over yonder. Tried to avoid images that you uploaded there, or didn't upload at all, etc. Hope this might help with anything. djr13 (talk) 00:06, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

(Sign up for monthly delivery)

Happy New Year, and welcome to a special double issue of Books & Bytes. We've included a retrospective on the changes and progress TWL has seen over the last year, the results of the survey TWL participants completed in December, some of our plans for the future, a second interview with a Wiki Love Libraries coordinator, and more. Here's to 2014 being a year of expansion and innovation for TWL!

The Wikipedia Library completed the first 6 months of its Individual Engagement grant last week. Here's where we are and what we've done:
Increased access to sources: 1500 editors signed up for 3700 free accounts, individually worth over $500,000, with usage increases of 400-600%
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
...Read Books & Bytes!

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Bonapartism may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "{}"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • ] families; the latest one after [[far-right]] [[Legitimism]] and [[center-right]] [[Orleanism]].{ Both [[Boulangisme]] and [[Gaullism]] would be forms of Bonapartism.

Animals, art, and categories[edit]

Sorry, I made a mistake -- I was thinking of category:Art by animals, which is very different from category:Animal artists! I've undone my own change; thanks for bringing it up, otherwise I might not have gone back to double-check. DS (talk) 15:59, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Photo question[edit]

Where exactly did you find this image? File:Florek-wikipedia.jpg Was there no copyright notice on the program, or was the copyright not renewed? Calliopejen1 (talk) 02:33, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Okay, I did a bit more looking and saw that (according to the article page) the photo is from 1969. That's too late for non-renewal to put something in the public domain, so it hinges on whether there was a copyright notice in the program. For better verifiability, did you see the whole program or just this photo? Did you specifically ask whether there was a copyright notice anywhere in the program? And are you still in touch with whoever gave you this photo? If so, it might be worth having them send an email to WP:OTRS to confirm that there is no copyright notice, or to give more information about what exactly they scanned. Thanks, Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:25, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Architecutral Scupltures[edit]

I note from Corrado Parducci that he died in 1981. Thusly I am asking you to carefully reconsider what the copyright status of his works are. It was my understanding that post 1923 works of sculpture in the US were not covered by Freedom of panaroma, necessitating that their use on Wikipedia was subject to 'non-free use criteria'. A careful review of some of your photos featuring his works would be appreciated. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 07:04, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:LB-FDR-Memorial-2.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:LB-FDR-Memorial-2.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:35, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:LBAAHol2.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:LBAAHol2.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. 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 any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:09, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

List of monuments of the Gettysburg Battlefield[edit]

99th Pennsylvania Infantry Monument.

I thought it would take about 2 hours to recategorize the monuments on Wiki Commons. Not 4-1/2! Well, it's probably 95% done. Still some dozen or so unidentified. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 15:59, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

When I saw you launching into that, I thought,"Bravery such as that deserves, well, a monument." because the time involved is not a surprise to me. You have been doing yeoperson's work - of course I did prefer my picture of the Mississippi Memorial to your new one, better color and more dramatic, but, as the Mississippians learned on that day, you win some land . . . . . . .......... Carptrash (talk) 16:12, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
I like the drama of your photo. Is the guy with the rifle is trying to defend the fallen man or whack him? If it's the latter, your photo's better. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:33, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
As I recall, they are both on the same team. I'll look into it. Carptrash (talk) 18:05, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
That was my impression after looking at it from other angles. The standing man is defending rather than assaulting the fallen man. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 18:21, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
So you deliberately manipulated your photo to make it appear as if he was assaulting a dying man. Shameful. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 18:27, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Well, I finally got thru all of SIRIS. Now people can fill things in with images. Do you know anything about the 99th Pennsylvania Infantry Monument? SIRIS and other sources list two iterations of the monument, but the NPS numbering suggests three. It looks to me like something from the 1964 World's Fair, so this iteration may date from the time of Gettysburg's centennial. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 18:20, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

The first time I visited Gettysburg, I was in my 20s. I remember its being an aesthetic overload and well as a historical one.
Take a look and see what you think of the format of the article. I think it works better in 3 tables (rather and 7), but I'm sure there are things that could dress it up.
The best part is being able to generate the map of co-ordinates. It's just a start, but it will fill in. Generally I'm very happy with the article. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 21:39, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
Gettysburg Battlefield (3441617160).jpg
Yeah, but note that the monument says "2nd Maryland Infantry C.S.A."
I have a nominee for your phallic architecture page:
-- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 23:01, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
It was a surprise to me. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:17, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to have to rework the reserve regiments. I organized them under the units they were attached to, but some were state militias that kept their own identities during the war and erected their own monuments after. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 17:32, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

As best I can make out from Martin's "Confederate Monuments at Gettysburg" there are 6 Maryland CSA markers, most, I believe, just plaques. Thanks for pointing this oddity out to me. Carptrash (talk) 22:40, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

The January 1, 1863 Emancipation Proclamation freed the enslaved only in states then at war with the U.S. I wonder what Lincoln intended to do about slavery in the border states. Until the passage of the 13th amendment, it remained legal in MD & DE, and legal but dying in NJ. -- BoringHistoryGuy (talk) 02:19, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: jorlowitz@gmail.com.
