A barnstar for you![edit]

Brilliant Idea Barnstar Hires.png The Brilliant Idea Barnstar
You technically deserve 5,125,839 more barnstars but that would take way to long on my end! :P

If it wasn't for you the GA Cup would of never have happened and the backlog would probably be 600+ right now! Dom497 (talk) 00:58, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Woman climbing[edit]

I nominated "yours" for TFA: Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/Fanny Bullock Workman, in women's history month, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:34, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

But @Gerda Arendt: it's not "mine"; it's User:Wadewitz's. Very nice thought, since she deserves that one of her articles is TFA during March. Thanks. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 00:06, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
  • It may have been better to nominate earlier on, though, as Brian's already scheduled much of March. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:50, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I notified her, in memory, and there are several days open. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 06:10, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Special character inserter[edit]

VisualEditor’s special character inserter has been re-designed. Because you previously shared your opinions on the old “floating box” version, I would like your feedback on the new, full-width design. Click here to open the Sandbox at mediawiki.org. As of this morning, this sandbox only shows a small, basic set of special characters. However, the list of characters can be customized at each wiki. Please test it out, and leave your feedback at the VisualEditor/Feedback page on mediawiki.org. Thank you! Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:05, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. We appreciate that you have signed up to receive suggestions regularly; your contributions make Wikipedia better — thanks for helping!

If you have feedback on how to make SuggestBot better, please let us know on SuggestBot's talk page. Regards from Nettrom (talk), SuggestBot's caretaker. -- SuggestBot (talk) 14:06, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of Sesame Street Muppets, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Matt Robinson (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Falcon's Fury[edit]

Hey,

Do you review FAC's? If so, would you mind reviewing Falcon's Fury for me please? If not, no worries! It's on its fourth nomination (the other three were closed because not enough people responded) so even if you know someone else who might be interested, it would help a lot! :) --Dom497 (talk) 19:28, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Hey to you! Yah, I review FACs and am happy to assist. I can't tell you how many times I've gone through the exact thing. I've resorted to building a posse of folks who I know that I can count on to review my FACs. That's not canvassing; it's just ensuring that articles are reviewed and no one wastes their time. I have some time tomorrow, so I'll go take a look then. I have an FLC currently, but they're better at reviewing lists over there and they're making me do some sorely needed stuff to improve it. BTW, I have next week off, and starting a discussion about the next GA Cup is on my to-do list! I also want to go through the feedback. Cheers, mate! ;) Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 03:12, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks so much! Regarding the GA Cup, I'm on vacation from the 14th to 22nd so I won't be able to be part of any discussions until after next week.--Dom497 (talk) 21:01, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Good to know. No worries, there's no hurry. I was thinking we'd start up again late summer (Aug?), so I'm good with postponing discussion. Have a great time, whatever you're doing! Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 21:28, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm ready to start when you are! :) --Dom497 (talk) 00:26, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
@Dom497: now it's my turn to be busy! I'll try and look at the feedback tomorrow and contact you through email in the next couple of days. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 15:06, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Videos as citation sources[edit]

I have a question regarding the use of videos as sources. In the performers section of 84th Academy Awards list, some users (including 'Atomic Meltdown) want to put the songs (or actually singing about the Best Picture nominees in tune with popular songs) that host Billy Crystal performed in his opening monologue. Atomic Meltdown uses this article from The Hollywood Reporter as a source. The article contains a video of Billy Crystal performing the songs, but the article itself does not say or indicate word for word in the text what he is actually singing (i.e. singing about Midnight in Paris to the tune of "The Last Time I Saw Paris"). I know what Crystal sang is true, but for the sake of Wikipedia standards, is this acceptable?

--Birdienest81 (talk) 06:26, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
@Birdienest81: I looked at the nature of the controversy, and I fall on your side. When you cite a source, it has to support the statements you make in the article. If the Hollywood Reporter article doesn't report on what Crystal sang (or did), you can't use it to support content about the song. It's my understanding that we can't use a YouTube clip as a source. You can, however, use the broadcast itself as a source. I suggest that you include the information as a note, and support it with the broadcast. I warn you, though, that it might not fly at FAC, but it won't hurt to try. Christine (Figureskatingfan) (talk) 03:31, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Invitation[edit]

A gummi bear holding a sign that says "Thank you"
Thank you for using VisualEditor and sharing your ideas with the developers.

Hello, Figureskatingfan,

The Editing team is asking for your help with VisualEditor. I am contacting you because you have switched out of VisualEditor several times. Please tell them what they need to change to make VisualEditor work for you, so that you didn't need to switch to the wikitext editor. The team has a list of top-priority problems, but they also want to hear about small problems. These problems may make editing less fun, take too much of your time, or be as annoying as a paper cut. The Editing team wants to hear about and try to fix these small things, too. 

You can share your thoughts by clicking this link. You may respond to this quick, simple, anonymous survey in your own language. If you take the survey, then you agree your responses may be used in accordance with these terms. This survey is powered by Qualtrics and their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy.

More information (including a translateable list of the questions) is posted on wiki at mw:VisualEditor/Survey 2015. If you have questions, or prefer to respond on-wiki, then please leave a message on the survey's talk page.
