Useful links; future articles?[edit]

Java Industrial Film needs something.

McKinsey & Company[edit]

So it's a very large article on a business consultancy, which is not a topic that attracts a lot of interest around here. There's been a good half-dozen editors involved in the page at one point or another, but each tends to maintain interest only for a single section. Sphilbrick just reviewed the Publishing section, but said he was all peetered out on it after that for the time being.

I've made some cleanup requests here regarding some poorly-sourced or redundant information. It looks like an intimidating request, but since it's just deleting it's actually fairly easy. I was wondering if you had the time/interest to take a look. All that's left after that is the Notable Works section and we should be able to completely disperse the "Issues" section (formerly Criticisms) and get to a point of polishing and GAN prepping after having been poking at this article for over a year now.

  • Not for the next two weeks, most likely. My family is in town for the first time in two years, so I am going to be busy until they return to Canada. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:14, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Aww, Canada, the country every American loves to idolize. I've been hammering away at this article/client for about two years now; I think I can wait two weeks ;-) CorporateM (Talk) 13:08, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Great. Ping me if I seem to have forgotten. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:11, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Bandung images[edit]

For the stalkers

Indonesia 10K & 2K[edit]

Just noticed them, very sharp images...-Godot13 (talk) 00:45, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Haven't had the time to scan the remaining three yet. Still getting back into routine after my parents' visit. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:11, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Hope it was a good visit for all.-Godot13 (talk) 02:28, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Good enough. They enjoyed it, probably because we didn't pack the schedule as much as the first time they came. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:01, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Treasury Secretary[edit]

I was looking at lists that use portraits and stumbled on this one. I thought they had cropped the portraits until I started clicking on a few. Looked up the syntax but couldn't find any explanation of how to get the relevant numbers. A few hours of trial and error...-Godot13 (talk) 06:15, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

  • A few hours? I'd have given up. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:50, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Copyright question on a Cuban banknote (1872)[edit]

Hi Crisco- I want to upload a 1872 Cuban banknote but the category in commons is empty with a warning. The note was printed by the National Bank Note Company of New York, for the El Banco Espanol De La Habana (i.e., Cuba was under Spanish rule). I'm fairly certain I can upload it to English Wikipedia, what's your take on Commons? Thanks--Godot13 (talk) 01:51, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Well, based on commons:Commons:Currency, perpetual copyright on a banknote is not unheard of (Ireland, for instance). Short of any concrete guidelines approving old Cuban notes (or limiting when copyright came into effect) I'd upload locally. One could perhaps argue that since it was created before the Republic of Cuba became independent in 1902, Cuban copyright law doesn't apply, but I wouldn't risk that. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 02:01, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Done, thanks.-Godot13 (talk) 03:21, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
      • Oh my, it almost looks like a ticket stub! (Yeah, not the politic thing to say...) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:46, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Need advice[edit]

Hi Crisco, I have a question; how do you manage to get so much content related to early Indonesian films? I have a few DYK credits but I want to create better content,i.e. GAs and FAs. How can I do so? Any advice.?

  • Well, Skr15081997, I'm fortunate in that I live in Indonesia and the early Indonesian cinema is both a personal and professional interest, so I have fairly nice access to sources. Do you have any articles that you are looking to turn to GA? — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:59, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
The Wrath of the Gods (1914 film), Sessue Hayakawa and Tsuru Aoki. The first was a DYK and the other two are the lead actors. I have no problem with adding the balanced content, MOS, reliable sources etc., it's the prose quality requirement that beats me. I'm working hard to increase my vocabulary and know the other grammar rules.--Skr15081997 (talk) 16:06, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Well, my recommendation from a quick look over is to avoid repeating similar information (check out the lead for Hayakawa) and to avoid very short sections. Single paragraph sections are usually not a good sign. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 16:21, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I have reorganized the sections in the Hayakawa article. The film articles looks the best out of the three. Aoki's article needs a lot of hard work.--Skr15081997 (talk) 13:37, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I agree, the film article is the closest to the standard you're looking for. I'm a bit too busy in RL to go into a detailed review, but perhaps Taylor Trescott (another aficionado of old films) would be willing to lend a hand. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:56, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Image copyrights[edit]

Hi Crisco 1492, I've added File:Richie Benaud 1956.jpg to the List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Richie Benaud and the list is currently at the FLC. I'm not a copyright expert so wanted you to have a look at the copyrights of the image? Regards, Khadar Khani (talk) 19:13, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Do we have proof it was taken in 1956? The link just goes to the image itself. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:25, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • It is taken during 50s but I don't have any proof! What's your suggestion? Khadar Khani (talk) 03:56, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • It's kinda important to have proof. Even though Commons doesn't recognize the URAA now (if they did this would certainly not be free enough) the cut-off point for Australian images is 50 years; in other words, photographs taken in 1954 or earlier are PD in that country. If this really is 1956, it's not free. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 06:55, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Copyedit request[edit]

Me and Tezero are gonna be taking Sleeping Dogs to FA in less than 2 weeks, so I was wondering if there was any chance that you could copy edit the entire article, which is pretty small. Thanks! URDNEXT (talk) 15:14, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I might see you at the FAC, but I don't think I will have time before then. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:41, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
It's alright. Can I expect to see your support at the FAC then? URDNEXT (talk) 15:42, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
  • You should read WP:CANVASSING; trying to direct people towards a certain decision is considered disruptive. I said I may review. That doesn't mean I'll support. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:44, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I didn't know about that. URDNEXT (talk) 15:48, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/De bono mortis[edit]

Crisco, Drmies has supplied the QPQ you were looking for. I'm not sure how much of the review you have left to do—some of the usual points like neutrality and close paraphrasing aren't mentioned as having been checked—but if you're ready to finish it off, that'd be great. If you'd prefer someone else finish it, I'm happy to put out the call. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:54, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Damn, didn't have it watchlisted for some reason. Doing. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 04:14, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
