Request to move article Richard Wilson (Scottish actor) incomplete[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg

You recently filed a request at Wikipedia:Requested moves to move the page Richard Wilson (Scottish actor) to a different title - however your proposal is either incomplete or has been contested as being controversial. As a result, it has been moved to the incomplete and contested proposals section. Requests that remain incomplete after five days will be removed.

Please make sure you have completed all three of the following:

  1. Added {{move|NewName}} at the top of the talk page of the page you want moved, replacing "NewName" with the new name for the article. This creates the required template for you there.
  2. Added a place for discussion at the bottom of the talk page of the page you want to be moved. This can easily be accomplished by adding {{subst:RMtalk|NewName|reason for move}} to the bottom of the page, which will automatically create a discussion section there.
  3. Added {{subst:RMlink|PageName|NewName|reason for move}} to the top of today's section here.

If you need any further guidance, please leave a message at Wikipedia talk:Requested moves or contact me on my talk page. - JPG-GR (talk) 03:03, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:Eva cross explosion.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Eva cross explosion.png. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Money.ogg[edit]

Hi, I've been working on the The Dark Side of the Moon article which is currently at GAN, and wondered if you would mind if I replaced your upload with my own? The reason being that the licence won't really allow two versions to co-exist (one will have to be deleted), and the two samples I've uploaded to the article are from the same album, and therefore amplitude matched. Drop me a line on my talk page, let me know what you think. I'll probably upload a third track, "Us and Them" maybe. Parrot of Doom (talk) 20:25, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Dark Side of the Moon Money.ogg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Dark Side of the Moon Money.ogg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use 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 uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Parrot of Doom (talk) 16:30, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Jeremy Browne MP[edit]

It seems another attempt has been made to censor this page by removing inconvenient details.

Just a reminder...[edit]

Please watch for vandals deleting requests to Wikify the article /Gregoire_Seither. Someone deleted yours from last November without adding any in-line citations as requested by one of the templates you requested; today I've added Notability & No footnotes templates. Appears to be a "vanity" page for self-promotion of his arts/activism; at least some of the groups he's a part of also had WP articles created about them w/out inline citations, but at least look like notable groups (covered in press, albeit fringe publications). Please either check each 6 months or so (it took someone approx that long to delete your templates, which were 100% justified), or I'll leave it up to you since you're more experienced on WP editing than me: Should it be deleted _immediately_ as it's a living person?24.155.205.244 (talk) 10:59, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Sion Simon[edit]

H2 - why do you continually delete a version of Sion Simon's page? If you watch the linked source, you'll find that he actually says what is quoted in the article.

By deleting without confirming the source - which you clearly have not, otherwise it is abundantly obvious - seems to imply a political bias in your deletions. I hope not. Md010101 (talk) 17:47, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Margaret Beckett MP[edit]

You have added a [who?] tag into the MPs expenses section where I state that she is widely considered to be impenitent about her expenses. The previous section contains a description of - and link to - her Question Time appearance in which she condemned herself by her own statements and behaviour. The Sunday Times article of 23/08/2009 further reinforces that widespread impression of her views and attitude.

I daresay that if I look hard and long enough I can find a published article in which the words "arrogant" and "impenitent" appear.They certainly do in the comments to the online articles. Roaringboy 08:03, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Paddy's Girl[edit]

Hi Dave

Thanks for responding to my query.

I don't mind sharing the images I've had created for my book on Wikipedia, but what I'm trying to do is check that I've not inadvertently misrepresented the concept of TCP/IP (in terms of the importance of disaggregating the IP from the TCP), and also that I've visually explained the role of the IMPs (interface message processors) and TIPs (terminal IMPs) from the early days of the internet, c. 1970.

I'd have emailed them to you via the Wikipedia email service but couldn't see how to upload .pdfs.

Jeremy browne Mp for Taunton[edit]

Dear H2g2bob,

Re your revision to the Jeremy Browne page. First let me say that i have an interest in this page above the ordinary but that that is not my purpose in contacting you.

Taunton is a fiercely contested marginal seat. That having been said, this is an article about the person who is the MP, not a political page about the constituency.

I have looked at the pages for all five MPs representing seats in Somerset, alao those in Devon, Cornwall and Bristol, to get an idea of the standard level of detail found in relation to local and national campaigning issues and activity.

Browne is in a minority of MPs not to have been asked to repay money in the 2009/10 expenses scandal. Eleven in the neighboring region have had to and there is no mention of expenses on any of their wiki pages. In fact of nearly forty pages for members of parliament in the South West of England I can only find two with any mention of expenses, let alone whole sections, and the most detailed is of only five lines. I am not sure that a list of highly selected items, legitimately claimed, for an office in expenses, from a list of over two thousand, over five years gives any greater insight into who Browne is.

In fact the whole expenses section in my opinion skews the balance of this page from the norm or the informative. It might be more reasonable simply to remove it. This being the case i am going to greatly shrink the section but publish this intent on the Browne discussion page should anyone wish to comment.

Many thanks for your consideration --Milk76 (talk) 01:52, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

I think yours is a good edit to this page. It is now balanced far better.--Milk76 (talk) 08:13, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

RPED extension[edit]

Hello, I have recently put up a site, rped.org, to demonstrate a new extension I am working on. Notice how it detects whether articles exist on the local wiki and/or Wikipedia, and then colors links red or blue accordingly, linking them to the appropriate url and giving the local wiki priority if the linked article exists there. When this extension reaches a stable version, perhaps it would be useful for Deletionpedia, since you don't mirror the articles that Wikipedia keeps, but you have a lot of internal wikilinks to Wikipedia articles that don't go anywhere. You wouldn't want to indiscriminately use interwiki links without existence detection, since then there would be a bunch of dead links; but on the other hand, it's good to provide a link if you can. No special markup is needed; just regular wikilinks.

I downloaded the m:Database dump of all 7,181,313 enwiki page titles and fed it into the extension so that it would know which pages exist and which don't; and I have perl scripts that can continually update the database using RecentChanges and deletion/restore log data, although I haven't brought those live yet. My goal is to eventually syndicate the page title data updates to client wikis, so that we don't all have to be querying Wikipedia constantly.

Tisane (talk) 19:09, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi, that looks really interesting! I'll take a look and see if I can use it - it would certainly be very useful. At the moment, I just style everything blue and have a link on the "page not found" error - this would be much nicer. Thanks for the link, and thanks for working on it :) --h2g2bob (talk) 00:19, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. And if you have any constructive criticism, feel free to let me know. MaxSem has been rather vociferous about the shortcomings of my code and of me as a programmer and contributor in general, but I think he's just nasty to everyone. This is the first code I've ever produced for Mediawiki (aside from a very minor core patch) so inevitably there's going to be a learning curve. The source code is public property of course, so feel free to contribute improvements to the file pages linked from mw:Extension:RPED/Pre-alpha release.
I think you may be able to get some functionality to work for you. The RPED special page (implemented by RPED_body.php)'s only purpose is to manage your subscription to the RPED central server, which is not really operational yet. So you might try just playing around with the settings in RPEDConfig.php (in my experience, you'll need to use a database user account other than the one for your wiki, by the way; e.g. if you're using wikiuser for your wiki, create another one called wikiuser2, give it the necessary privileges and tell RPEDConfig.php to logon to the database server using that one) and use the RPEDFileReader.pl or a bot of your own design to import the all-titles-in-ns0.gz data into the page_titles table. RPED.php should be able to begin remote page existence detection via the LinkEnd hook without your doing anything more. I don't know of any major security holes right offhand that remain in the code; RPEDAPIReader.php is designed to allow a remote user (specifically, the RPED central server) to provide information on what rows to insert or delete from your page title table, but it won't work unless you have used the special page to generate a password and to give that password to the central server. Tisane (talk) 02:00, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

I made an enhancement to the RPED extension so that now you can set different styles (e.g. different colors or fonts) for links depending on whether they link to local articles (green), remote articles (blue), or are interwiki links (orange). These settings can be changed through RPEDConfig.php. You can see how it works at the RPED sandbox link above. Tisane (talk) 09:23, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

WP:Pure wiki deletion[edit]

My next project will be to implement PWD. Here is a little bit of info about what I have in mind. We might end up implementing this as part of the core (ideally), if consensus allows, or as an extension or hack. PWD, if implemented on Wikipedia, might sure make your task of harvesting articles for Deletionpedia easier, especially in reference to speedy deletions. Let me know if you want to collaborate on this; and if anyone else reading this is interested, feel free to drop me a line. Later, Tisane (talk) 07:26, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

I did not make an edit as such. I simply reverted the edit that was made previously to part of the article that had been there for years.

File copyright problem with File:Votes by party in the 1979 vote of no confidence against the government of James Callaghan.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Votes by party in the 1979 vote of no confidence against the government of James Callaghan.png. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously. It may be deleted soon, unless we can determine the license and the source of the file. If you know this information, then you can add a copyright tag to the image description page.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their license and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link.

Hello, just wanted to let you know about this proposal. Basically, this would be Deletionpedia on steroids. If access to the backend ends up being denied, as it probably will be, then the other way to go about doing this would be to start with a Wikipedia database dump, and then bring it up to date (and keep it up to date) using a bot that would pull data from Wikipedia recent changes. Let me know if you're interested in collaborating on this; if so, I think the best bot framework to use would probably be Peachy. Thanks, Tisane talk/stalk 16:56, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Shipping Forecast.ogg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Shipping Forecast.ogg. 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. FishBarking? 22:07, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

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).
