Hello[edit]

Sophie Moss[edit]

thank you very much for explaining. We are her family and would like to communicate with you about her many years in Ireland and their significance. How do we do this?. (Hjwb500 (talk) 13:52, 15 August 2010 (UTC))

I am curious to know what led you to create the Sophie Moss page and how was this possibility flagged up to you? (Hjwb500 (talk) 15:32, 8 August 2010 (UTC))

I'm interested in biographies of foreigners who lived in Ireland. I read somewhere that she had lived here, and I wanted to find out more about her and where she had lived, so I looked her up on Wikipedia but there was no article on her, only on her ex-husband. I thought she was deserving of an article of her own, and I hope to expand the article when I find out more about her and/or her family. Hohenloh + 17:53, 9 August 2010 (UTC)


I have seen your name on articles that you have started or edited, and that I have also edited or created. It would appear we may have similar interests perhaps. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and if you have any tips for me or any articles that you need a hand with. --DubhEire (talk) 17:54, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi, many thanks! I saw your name too, and I'd first like to ask you where you get the co-ordinates from. I use Earthtools.org, but it seems to provide only the decimal format, not the minutes and seconds of an arc that I'd prefer. At the moment I'm creating articles for the following:
  • Each of the Dublin city civil parishes (about 13 out of 19 or so done so far - each article to contain sections on the church, cemetery, parish and notable parishioners)
  • Each of the Dublin Liberties (5 done, the others are of minor importance). Also need to create a category for the Dublin Liberties.
  • Each of the Dublin hospitals of the 19th century (about 6 left to do) and the prominent doctors and surgeons in these
  • Re-writing The Liberties article, which was in a really bad state, but I wanted to complete the individual Liberties articles first to ensure I had references, background material, etc.
If you're interested, I could send you a list of the articles I've created (106 so far) or just the Dublin ones. Regards, Hohenloh + 18:57, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

I get the coords using Google Maps by right clicking on where you want for coords for and then select What's here?. I then check them with the other map providers before I commit, i.e. bing and yahoo. Earthtools.org is using google maps, but it is rounding to 4 decimal places, which I have seen as being what should be put on the article as excessive decimal places, etc. Google gives you 6 decimals, for example The Spire in Dublin's city centre is 53.349802,-6.26026 using What's here. You may know that you need to take the absolute values of the coords, so -6.26026 is 6.26026 and put that in for the coords in the article. If you want minutes and seconds, you can convert in Excel with a few simple steps. So using 6.26026, you have 6 as the degrees, then .26026 * 60 = 15.6156 or 15 minutes, then .6156 * 60 = 36.936 or 36 seconds. This makes 6.26026 equal to 6°15′36″. There is some precision lost on the locating this point back to the map where the Spire is a good example of this. So you could say 36.9 seconds and that will look good. I hope that is helpful.

Perhaps you could list your articles that you are intersted in on your user page, along with those that you have created. I have seen people do that and it can be interesting. I think I will do that myself.
As regards churches and hospitals, I am interested in those too, but it is lower on my list at the moment. I am interested in things local to me along the South East of Dublin. I have been out taking pictures and will be hitting the city centre shortly.
If there is anything else I can help with, please let me know and if you are stuck for a photo for your articles, I can try too.
DubhEire (talk) 21:27, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
A quick question for either or both of you. Is there any tutorial that would cover the info above re using co-ordinates? There are many occasions when I would have liked to apply them to various articles, but seem to get tied up in knots. Or is it just something that geotaggers and other regular users of GPS info. have from outside Wikipedia? I have also started to take photos with the intention of uploading to Commons and applying to articles. All seems a bit daunting. Best. RashersTierney (talk) 21:55, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
I found this tutorial useful WikiProject Geographical coordinates. I should say that I found Bing Bird's Eye view a good check, but their Bird's Eye pictures mapped to coord is off in quite a few places, but it is good for reference points to be sure you have dropped the point right. I just put the coords at the end of the article or in the infobox if it is there. I use this at the end of the article coord|53.349802|N|6.26026|W|type:landmark_region:IE|display=title enclosed in double curly brackets {} . You can change display=title to display=inline if you want to show other points in the article, i.e. other buildings in a large complex or battle sites or something like that.
Then go to this list for articles that need tagging Ireland articles missing geocoordinate data
I'm sure in due time an agreed format will be made and a bot will come along a format the coords in decimals or degrees, mins, secs.
Also, there is a discussion to be had about coords for articles where the actual building doesn't exist anymore and something else is there. These coords make the articles appear in the Google Maps Wikipedia layer and also in some iPhone applications. The time lag to appear in those external databases appears to be in months, rather than overnight or weekly.
DubhEire (talk) 23:05, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
The WikiProject link was just what I was hoping for. Many thanks for reply. Lots to absorb and hope to soon be in a position to take up your suggestion of getting stuck in. Best. RashersTierney (talk) 23:37, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, very interesting, and as Rashers says lots to absorb. I've a few photos to put up of buildings, including churches, in the Liberties. Would like a photo of what's left of Church of St. Nicholas Within and St. Luke's Church, Dublin on the Coombe, also the Widow's House there and the portico of Coombe Hospital. I'll arrange a list of articles I'm working on on my user page, divided into geographic area and subject if possible, 'cos I do a lot of German and Italian stuff as well. Regards, Hohenloh + 01:43, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
I got most of those pictures today. I forgot about the Coombe, ah well. Hope that helps. DubhEire (talk) 23:36, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
Good work! BTW, I've been using http://tools.freeside.sk/geolocator/geolocator.html for obtaining the coordinates and it works a charm! Hohenloh + 23:52, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Adminship[edit]

After your comment on the whole orphan issue, I looked at some of your contributions, and I was impressed with your quiet dedication over the past few years, especially the coordinate missing edits, which I've helped with as well.

I think your input would be valuable on policy related discussions. Even though you and I may disagree on some of these, I've been very impressed by your approach, and hope you might think about commenting there. See you around. Shadowjams (talk) 08:29, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Many thanks. I've been concentrating on firstly finding my way round Wikipedia and then contributing to a number of projects that IMHO needed more input. I'd be happy to take a look at what you have in mind and would appreciate pointers. Regards, Hohenloh + 19:06, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

WP Ireland in the Signpost[edit]

Hi Hohenloh. WikiProject Report would like to focus on WikiProject Ireland for a Signpost article to be published March 15. This is an excellent opportunity to draw attention to your efforts and attract new members to the project. Would you be willing to participate in an interview? -Mabeenot (talk) 06:59, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, sure. What do I need to do? Hohenloh + 18:59, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Here are the questions for the interview. Feel free to skip any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Also, if you know anyone else who would like to participate in the interview, feel free to share this with them. Thanks for participating in this WikiProject Report. -Mabeenot (talk) 20:56, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Music of Ireland[edit]

That's fine, I just inserted them because they added time-depth to the subject. Hopefully someone can come up with a practical use for them. Pre-17th century Irish music badly need investigation. Fergananim (talk) 15:29, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Agreed - good work. Hohenloh + 15:31, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

St Audoen's[edit]

I put a link to St Audoen's Catholic Church, Dublin in the lead of St. Audoen's Church. Please feel free to move it if you see fit. Also someone requested that there should be a disambiguation page. Do you think that is required? I think we should look at naming all churches (at least Dublin) with a standard naming convention. There are a few subtle differences like St or St. or Saint for a start. DubhEire (talk) 14:43, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

I think I'd edit the intro - the juxteposition of two similarly-named churches might prove confusing for the general reader, and there is no indication there that St. Audoen's is Church of Ireland. I think a DAB page would be no harm - just a matter of what to call it. I'd welcome a naming convention, and would suggest some common information in the church articles, ie, which sections should be included. I've been concentrating on old churches, so historical information preponderates, perhaps to the detriment of other information. FWIW, these are the church articles I've created (in the English-language Wikipedia): St. Kevin's Church, Harrington Street, Dublin, Mariners' Church, Dún Laoghaire, St. Mary del Dam, St. Thomas's Church, Dublin]], St. Mark's Church, Dublin, Church of St. Nicholas Within, Church of St. Nicholas Without, Dublin, St. Luke's Church, Dublin, St. Michael's Church, Dublin, St. Andrew's Church, Andrew St., Dublin, St. Peter's Church, Aungier Street, Dublin, St. Bride's Church, Dublin, St. Andrew's Church, Westland Row, Dublin, Church of St. John the Evangelist, Dublin, St. George's Church, Dublin, St. James' Church and Cemetery, John's Lane Church, Drumcondra Church, St. Mary's Abbey, Dublin, St. Kevin's Church, Camden Row, Dublin, St. Catherine's Church, Dublin, St Werburgh's Church, Dublin, St. Audoen's Church. I'd welcome further ideas/suggestions on this and with this in mind will take a look at church articles in other countries. Hohenloh + 16:49, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
That's a good list. I agree with your naming convention. I have come across a few Saint blah. I would prefer it to be "St." and you have named all of yours that way. I think the name of the church followed by where it is to be good, where being street or city is fine. I should rename any Saint something to "St." that I have been looking at. I don't see it as a problem considering the good job the move tool does. I am using Wikipedia Beta so I just found where the move button is. DubhEire (talk) 18:32, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Dun Laoghaire Oratory[edit]

Since you said that you would welcome suggestions for church articles. My I suggest the Dun Laoghaire Oratory. [2] Bring a good camera with you. Its tiny Its magnificent ClemMcGann (talk) 08:44, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

I agree it is an excellent little gem. DubhEire (talk) 14:00, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
and rarely open. I once heard that it was not in favour because it commemorated Irish soldiers in WWI. don't know if that's true, but hopefully we have matured since then ClemMcGann (talk) 14:20, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
I see that it was built just after WWI in the grounds of the old Dominican Sisters and all the detail was pretty much done between 1920 and 1936 by Sister Mary Concepta Lynch who was a trained Celtic artist. I have yet to see visit but I am planning to do that soon as it would appear to be something that must be seen. DubhEire (talk) 12:51, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

An other Question about correct wording[edit]

I've an other question to a native speaker...

In the article Düsseldorfer Automobil- und Motorsport-Club 05 is the sentence:

The Düsseldorfer Automobil- und Motorsport-Club 05 e. V. (im ADAC) is the local club of the ADAC (German automobile club).

My Question:

This motor sport club is a small part of the big ADAC. Is the wording "...is THE local club..." correct, or is the wording "...is A local club..." better???? --Pitlane02 (talk) 18:26, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
In my opinion, if there is only one local club in the area referred to, then THE is correct. If there is more than one club in the area referred to, then A is correct (or also, if you do not wish to refer to a specific area). Here we are dealing specifically with one club, and referencing the area of Düsseldorf, so I'd say THE. Hohenloh + 18:40, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Perfect! In Düsseldorf are more than one motor sport clubs, organized in the ADAC, I've corrected the sentence. Thanks again. --Pitlane02 (talk) 06:23, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Discussion on my talk page[edit]

After I protected your user page, the IP editor who was persistently posting to your page wrote to me, and we have had a few exchanges. He actually *does* seem sorry for his earlier bad attitude. You might want to take a look at the discussion. FWIW, he still cannot post to your talk page, as his account (he has a username now) is still not autoconfirmed yet. Horologium (talk) 22:18, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

My apologies[edit]

OK, so that was a poor statement on my part, and truthfully, its not that big a deal even if you were associated with the tour, as long as your edits are npov and sourced. COI is a guideline, not a law. sorry for the insinuation, though, as it was founded on speculation. however, i cant remove it from the subject of the edit. i will put a small note on the talk page of the article. and i still have to ask why we have such detail in this article. are there reliable sources that show this tour is notable?Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:25, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

No probs, and thanks for the reply. I don't know of any ghost bus tours in any city in Europe besides Dublin (but I'm willing to be corrected on this), which alone would make this tour unique, if not notable. But this tour is unique in that it visits and describes parts of Dublin that no other tour does, and all of these locations, as far as I know (and I am a historian and tour guide), can be verified in books, newspaper articles, etc. It is valuable in keeping local history alive, and is as notable as anything else in Dublin that tries to do the same thing. I'll try to get around to providing sources as time permits, but if you would like further info please don't hesitate to get in touch. 02:29, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello, I hope you're doing fine and I sincerely apologize for this intrusion. I've just read your profile and I understood that you're a learned person and an Irishman (I wish I can visit your wonderful country some time soon!), so can you understand what are a minorized language and culture and maybe I am not bothering you and you will help us... I'm a member of a Catalan association "Amical de la Viquipèdia" which is trying to get some recognition as a Catalan Chapter but this hasn't been approved up to that moment. We would appreciate your support, visible if you stick this on your first page: Wikimedia CAT. Supporting us will be like giving equal opportunity to minorized languages and cultures in the future!

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 17:24, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikimedia Ireland[edit]

Hi,

A while back you added your name at Wikimedia Ireland. Well, it took a year (almost to the day) but ten editors have expressed an interest in starting a Wikimedia chapter in Ireland, which meets the criteria for a "critical mass". If you're still interested, I'd would be great if we could kick off discussion. Maybe, a first step might be to introduce ourselves (anonymously) at the chapter talk page with some ideas about what a chapter could do or a sketch of your interest in founding one ... or even just say restate an interest and say 'hello' :-)

You may also be interested in joining the Wikimedia Ireland mailing list, if you are not already on it. --RA (talk) 20:08, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I think that the Peter Dews's 1962 TV addition that I made was a filmed version of a theatrical production, just cameras at the theater and not a cinematic rendition of the novel. Can you 'light a shed' on this? > Best O Fortuna (talk) 21:33, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
I'll look it up (but first I'm going to watch the football). BTW I've just finished editing George Desmond Hodnett, which I created yesterday. He used to pal around with Gainor Crist, Behan, et al, in the Catacombs. Hohenloh + 21:41, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Civil parishes[edit]

It is hardly a controversial deletion of the category so its not required to bring it to discussion. Churchs don't belong to a civil parish, they belong to ecclesiastical parishes. Civil parishes were sub-divisions of a barony and the only religious link they have to an ecclesiastical parish is that many share the same boundaries as Church of Ireland parishes - but that is all.

Also a church can hardly be a parish in itself never mind a civil parish. That is why it is called a civil parish after all - its not religious.

If you want to enforce mistruth then take it to the Wikiproject Ireland talk page and see what everyone else thinks - either that or you remove the mistruth yourself. Mabuska (talk) 10:41, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

In fact i see you already have taken it there, so i will repeat myself there. Mabuska (talk) 10:43, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Donnelly and Cooper[edit]

Could you review this article? I believe it is no longer a stub. I am not a member of the songs project.Colemcginnis (talk) 22:57, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

I think you have done a good job in creating the article but it does need a copy-edit for layout and a few other things, also the number of references is IMHO over-kill. I'm a bit stuck for time right now with other projects but in the meantime take a look at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (titles) for correct use of punctuation in titles (which is something I need to correct in a number of articles). I'll get back to it later but if you have any queries don't hesitate to get in touch. Cheers, Hohenloh + 19:13, 24 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the upgrade. At my skill level, I don't believe I can make any more improvements. Maybe someone will come across the article and help it out someday. I corrected song title punctuation. Overkill? More like paranoia. I fear the dreaded "lacks citations" box of doom too much maybe.Colemcginnis (talk) 01:19, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

Lol! I'm on my way to a music festival and shall recommend your article to some traditional ballad singers that I know. Hohenloh + 00:14, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

The Milhist election has started![edit]

The Military history WikiProject coordinator election has started. You are cordially invited to help pick fourteen new coordinators from a pool of twenty candidates. This time round, the term has increased from six to twelve months so it is doubly important that you have your say! Please cast your vote here no later than 23:59 (UTC) on Tuesday, 28 September 2010.

With many thanks in advance for your participation from the coordinator team,  Roger Davies talk 19:08, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Dan Donnelly[edit]

oooh, that was a bad one. But on a more serious note, I am going to need someone to tone down my POV here in a couple of weeks. You know I just can't stop myself. But the arm is a pretty neutral topic, so I'm just getting to the part where it goes back on tour with the Irish boxing exhibition. I could sure use a free image of it, and one of Donnelly's monument, too. Matt McNamara at curragh.info has offered a beautiful one of the obelisk, but I may have scared him off when I explained the licensing. See: http://curragh.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=521 Progress is slow; I only have a short time each day to work on it, so feel free to finish it up if you run out of more interesting articles to work on. Colemcginnis (talk) 05:05, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do as regards an image. I've got a backlog of stuff to complete in particular for the German WP which I'd like to finish off first. Hohenloh + 21:05, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Flags[edit]

Sorry for the trouble. I've removed the other flags. I hope it wasn't too much of a hassle for you. I started putting these on because I had seen one in an infobox that someone else had done, and so got the idea that they were ok. I'll discontinue using them, and if I see any others I'll remove them as well.-- I NEVER CRY 00:50, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

Connaught Rangers - Irish regiment?[edit]

Please consider joining the discussion at talk:Connaught Rangers. --Red King (talk) 00:00, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Irish Guards/History of the IG[edit]

The Scots Guards have four chronological "History of the Scots Guards" articles, but the other Guards regiments don't have any. Perhaps we could do some rationalisation between the main article and the History article and ensure its referenced in the main article. Dabbler (talk) 11:42, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

OK, will have a think about this later. Thanks, Hohenloh + 02:26, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
When I moved the section about the founding of the regiment to History of the Irish Guards, I merged it retaining the references. There is no need to have the section in Irish Guards as well surely. It seems needless duplication. It also allows MFIreland a further forum to push his POV that Earl Roberts of Kandahar, Pretoria and Waterford is not Irish but Indian, merely because he was born there while his Irish father was serving the Empire. I have not removed it yet from Irish Guards until I see your further response.Dabbler (talk) 18:34, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I think that the sources referenced in the section under discussion (was "History", now "Creation") should also appear in this article (Irish Guards) - you will have noticed that the other editor slapped a refimprove tag on the article yesterday (unjustified, IMHO, as there are good references provided).
As far as I know it's usual in Wikipedea that sections tagged with "Main article" also contain a summary. I feel that there should be some historical information in this article, notwithstanding that the main historical info also appears in History of the Irish Guards. I changed the section heading containing this info from "History" to "Creation", as the removed/replaced text mentioned only the setting up of the regiment.
However, you have a valid point, so please feel free to edit as you think fit. Hohenloh + 04:03, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Concerns about point of view[edit]

Mary Black[edit]

You indicated in your edit summary that you undid my revision. That's just not true. You added completely new, properly referenced, information. Its a bit rich suggesting that somehow you're undoing something that I did. Fmph (talk) 00:33, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

User: Vaarlam[edit]

I notice you've been having some difficulties with Vaarlam on the Ginger Man article. I have as well, on the ER season articles, for largely the same reasons -- his refusal to discuss, and his persistent addition of unsourced and indiscriminate information to articles, then to become confrontational to abusive when reverted. I've begun to reach a point where I wonder if some sort of report is in order. Drmargi (talk) 05:46, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I sympathize. There is a recommended process to follow when disputes arise, which I'm involved in right now. As recommended, I'll escalate on his talk page, and then see what ensues. If needs be, I'll go to ANI, and will mention your concerns then also. Please feel free to get in touch at any time. Hohenloh + 06:34, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad to have a comrade in this. Please let me know if you decide to pursue ANI, and I'll support your evidence with my own. The incivility and refusal to abide by guidelines is getting out of hand, and from what I can see, not for the first time. Drmargi (talk) 08:06, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

3RR[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Caubeen. Users who edit disruptively or refuse to collaborate with others may be blocked if they continue. In particular the three-revert rule states that making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24-hour period is almost always grounds for an immediate block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the talk page to discuss controversial changes. Work towards wording and content that gains consensus among editors. If unsuccessful, then do not edit war even if you believe you are right. Post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases it may be appropriate to request temporary page protection. If edit warring continues, you may be blocked from editing without further notice.

Regards Lloydelliot10 (talk) 19:02, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

I have requested page protection until everyone involved actually decides to use the articles talk page to discuss what appears to be an edit war over the articles content and direction. Until then can no more edits be made to the article? Mabuska (talk) 00:14, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
That's grand. I have not made any intervention for several days except just now, which was only to clean up the references. There is a history of disruptive edits by this editor on a number of articles dealing with Irish history over the past few few months, several of which were brought to the attention of ANI. It was characteristic that despite many requests by other editors, no attempt was made by this editor to explain things on the talk pages. The editor was blocked for sock-puppetry and the articles eventually tidied up by members of the Military History project. Hohenloh + 00:28, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. The article has now been locked for a week anyways. Lets hope we can discuss the whole thing properly now. :-) Mabuska (talk) 11:07, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Old-coombe-hospital-dublin.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Old-coombe-hospital-dublin.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:07, 2 March 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. 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 or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 22:07, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

File move request[edit]

Hello Hohenloh, before granting you a filemover permission, I would like to see you using commons effectively. Many of your files uploaded could have gone to commons. One of the issues a filemover has to consider is the name clash between commons and Wikipedia, so it would be good if you can show awareness of how commons works. For non free files you have to take extra care if you move them, so it is good if you have done something with them. However at least you know how to use upload and move! Graeme Bartlett (talk) 21:41, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi I am still not clear if you have a commons account or not. If you do can you say what the name is? Graeme Bartlett (talk) 01:38, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Dear Sir[edit]

Dear Sir,

Nearly a year ago, you and I got into a little squabble and in the interests of allowing the encyclopedia to develop free of distractions such as these I decided to retire from this site, and in the future appeal to your better nature in order to effect reconciliation. I have held back from contributing to this fine site because I was so appalled by my own conduct that I felt it necessary to impose a self inflicted ban upon myself for my detestable behaviour. During my long convalesence I have learnt much, but most importantly I have learnt that the way I treated you was abhorrent. I wish your forgiveness; if that proves impossible, at least your acceptance then of my good intentions. It goes without saying that if you don't believe that I have reformed then I will of course impose another ban upon myself. It would be too distracting for you, me and the community if you maintained such a grudge. It is inevitable that we will become 'working partners' as our interests naturally overlap and will be prone to edit similar articles. For this reason I cannot conscience a state of affairs wherein you and I are at loggerheads.

Consider this statement carefully, and do condescend to give me an answer.

Your loyal and faithful steward,

Fair Use Rationale[edit]

Hi Hohenloh. Re this edit, I think the licencing for this particular image is incompatible with its use except in very limited circumstances, such as an article directly about the subject. You might want to reconsider while we discuss it further? RashersTierney (talk) 01:12, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Not really. I checked the licencing and thought it was OK. I also checked the editor's contributions and recent history, which didn't seem OK. Cheers, Hohenloh + 01:26, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Fair 'nuff. Not an area I claim any expertise on. Best. RashersTierney (talk) 01:41, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually both File:Isaac Cohen.JPG and File:Immanuel Jakobovits.jpg as non-free images may only be used is an appropriate fair-use rationale is completed for each and every use but it must comply with all 10 non-free content policy requirements. Because there is no critical commentary about the images there is no contextual significance, so there is no justification in being used in History of the Jews in Ireland. Jakobovitz has a one line mention while Cohen is not even mentioned; fails WP:NFCC#8. Sorry but fair-use is rather strict. The use in their own biographies is acceptable under fair-use but neither has a proper fair-use rationale which I will try to add. You can always bring it to Wikipedia:Non-free content review for further discussion. Good luck. ww2censor (talk) 02:16, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
Seeing as nobody else has done anything about these two non-free images, I have removed them. ww2censor (talk) 03:36, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Category:Irish medical doctors[edit]

Can you explain why you persist in including various Irish hospitals in this category, which is headed "This category lists physicians who originated from Ireland or spent a notable part of their careers in Ireland."? -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 16:34, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

p.s. Please also stop reverting my edits concerning Dr. James Little. I am currently gathering as much information about him as I can so as to create a worthwhile article which will include the (fully referenced) facts that you are deleting. -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 16:50, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi, to answer your first question, each of those articles on hospitals contains the names and sometimes details of doctors and/or surgeons, not all of whom have pages of their own, so for that reason I feel the category is suitable. On your second point, I believe I have made only one deletion, a sentence or two, relating to James Little, which I think you'll agree has no relevance to the article - Wikipedia recommends deletion, see wp:topic. As I mentioned already I think it's a good idea to have an article devoted to Little, however, Wikipedia articles are not the place for test edits or storing information - that's what the sandbox is for. Best, Hohenloh + 21:34, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I am happy with the edit you made to the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland , although I restored the redlink to the SS Ava, but you also reverted my edits to Adelaide Hospital and Dublin Journal of Medical Science and removed all mention of Dr. Little. -- Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 21:50, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, that was an oversight on my part - didn't mean to remove the Little information from those articles. If you haven't restored it already I'll do so. Maybe I need to go to Specsavers. Hohenloh + 21:57, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Category:Cemeteries in County Dublin[edit]

The new category Category:Cemeteries in County Dublin follows Category:Buildings and structures in County Dublin and other subcategories of Category:County Dublin which is shown as one of 26 counties of the Republic. If the top subcategory should now be 8 regions including the Dublin Region, then a major reorganisation (by Project Ireland?) is needed. Some of the cemeteries eg Donnybrook Cemetery appear to be beyond the boundaries of Dublin city. Hugo999 (talk) 04:47, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

There has been much debate in and outside of Project Ireland on this topic (the break-up of the traditional counties since 1994) over the past couple of years, on content, lead, categories, etc. I haven't had time to keep up with the many discussions, and anyway some of them degenerated into edit warring. However, I've tried to keep articles that I have created, and related articles, updated. In this case, IMO, there should be a category Cemeteries in Dublin City for those inside the city boundaries. Of course some cemeteries formerly outside the city boundaries are now inside - I'd say Donnybrook is borderline. Hohenloh + 15:00, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about delay getting back. I thought it needed a copy edit, but our new contributor seemingly has done the honours. Otherwise looks like a good job, which needed to be done. I'll take another look shortly. Cheers, Hohenloh + 13:54, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Protestant Irish nationalists[edit]

The section i removed is highly suspect. Obviously its unsourced and the article has been tagged since March 2011, meaning unsourced information can be removed. In this case i also think it's very subjective wording. How does any of the people or examples of Protestant unionists accepting positions etc. in the Irish Free State equate to being abandoning their unionism and becoming "former unionists"? How does that even make them nationalists? Good explicit sources would be needed otherwise is it even relevant to the article? Mabuska (talk) 18:55, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

I have to finish up some project work now and will get back to your query in a day or so. Regards, Hohenloh + 18:58, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
No problems, however if nothing is done to fix the sections problems then due to the above problems i will remove it again as it is unsourced and subjective making statements that do not neccessarily mean that they are "former unionists". Mabuska (talk) 19:26, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
I have come to the conclusion that this article is "all over the place" (as we say). The lede does not fit the title and all sorts of information seem to have been added to it willy-nilly since it was first created, disregarding WP:TOPIC. It could be split into several articles, or renamed, the lede re-written and non-topic information removed. I think the information contained in the short paragraph under discussion is OK, and can provide more information and references if needed, but I'm wondering whether, under the circumstances, it is worth it? If you do remove it, you could probably remove half the article at the same time. Hohenloh + 17:28, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Overtagging[edit]

Thanks for the feedback. Sometimes it's like being in a very dark room with eyes closed and hands tied behind the back. I'll have a look at the changes you've made and follow the example from here-on in. I've found it a difficult area, and didn't feel comfortable with the number I was putting in (as you say, it disrupts the flow). But then it's hard to balance whether to only tag a few things that need citations or tag the lot. I'll go minimalist, wouldn't want to be accused of vandalism! Thanks. Brieflysentient (talk) 15:52, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. Please feel free to re-introduce any edits you want to these articles - I won't revert a second time! And if you've any queries don't hesitate to get in touch. Hohenloh + 16:21, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Mike d'Abo[edit]

Sorry, if I'd read on I could have done two answers in one. Normally on a big rewrite I'd give plrenty of time for comment first (you might want to check Talk:Johnny Cymbal for an example, and feedback on that one would be much appreciated). The d'Abo kinda ran away from me, and I lost the bigger picture, (though I don't think it was a bad job really). I'm just astounded how many articles I come across have been left to wither away incomplete or have been added to and added to and now resemble soup; or have critical info missing while deep in trivia, or quite simply don't have any chronology to them, or (I'll shut up now) ...

However, I'm now not clear whether the problem is the just citations or the re-write. As the change in info was

  • a remove of trivia
  • removal of an over-emphasis (and almost an advert) for radio programmes, which is not really his notability
  • removal of a bad repetition that should have been edited out before
  • putting things in a chronological order instead of a higgeldy-piggeldy history

would it not have been better to remove the over-cite problem and leave the text? Or is the text also contentious? I could happily explain why all the changes were made on the talk page, but I would have thought most of them were self-explanatory, and correct. If I've got it wrong, and you have the time, I'd appreciate the reasoning, so I can avoid doing it again. Especially useful as it's early days.

Thanks Brieflysentient (talk) 16:10, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

The main thing that struck me was the tagging, which as I said I thought was excessive, but there seemed to be a disjointedness about the article, which made me investigate it and then I found it was a re-write (and coincidentally, had just been done!). I read the previous version and found it easier to handle. I'm a bit busy at the moment - if you could give me a day or two I'll get back in further detail. In any case, as I said, I won't revert again. Hohenloh + 16:30, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
Knowing how busy things can get, I'll hang fire on the d'Abo until you can get back. Appreciated. I'm sure I can make a better stab at it, but as I said, there's a fair bit in there that doesn't look as though it belongs, and some which clearly isn't important enough comapred to what was missing.
- Just for info, (as per the gibber on my page), my intention is generally to tackle entries on a book by book basis from my collection (often simply making small changes or just a ref addition) rather than going full on on each article to add multiple references. I realise that means revisiting entries as I work through, but the alternative would mean spending ages on any single entry rather than being able to add to a larger number. Currently working through the Larkin encyclopedias does mean I'll get sidetracked sometimes where an entry is confused, wrong or missing clearly important info (or at least more important than what's there) and a re-write looks a better solution. But when I started, with Lillian Roxon's book, I ended up with doing very little other than refs (sometimes the only ones an article had). Feel free to shadow and revert or change whenever you like, of course - I don't take it personally, and it wouldn't be the first time it's happened :-)). However, can I just point out that a full revert can also remove 'good stuff' - like correcting Vicki Brown's date of death (I'll sort it later). I'll keep the tagging finger under control, promise! Thanks Brieflysentient (talk) 21:45, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Volunteer (Irish republican)[edit]

Hi Hohenloh. I appreciate that the section about loyalism probably now isn't relevant as there's a whole article about it, but don't you think the "see also" is appropriate? There should be a way for readers to find out about both terms from both articles as they are relevant to each other and both stem from the same source. For example, on the Volunteer (Ulster loyalist) article, there's a sentence stating "Irish nationalist and republican use of the term originates with a second Irish Volunteers formed in 1913 in response to Carson and Craig's UVF" and a "see also" link to the republican article. Best, JonCTalk 06:27, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

I see that a new dispute in the article has brought it to ANI and then to DRN. I won't comment until this is sorted out. Hohenloh + 12:25, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
That's fine. We'll see what happens. JonCTalk 12:46, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Arthur Clery[edit]

Hi. You implied in your edit summary that you were rectifying "tag bombing", but in fact you simply rv wholesale all of my edits, which were designed to rv unsourced assertions and text, POV, etc. as well as fact tagging and fixing punctuation. Can you explain why you would do such a thing? Quis separabit? 20:10, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but I'm only going by what is described under Tag bomb - there is already a tag noting the need for references; this should be sufficient. We assume good faith, there are already several references cited in the article (ok, more footnotes would be better, but there are probably a few hundred thousand articles that are in the same boat), there is no obvious POV problem, there is no obvious political bias, so where is the need to go around adding further tags willy-nilly that do nothing but harm the readability of the article? If you have concerns with the article, it is recommended by Wikipedia to first air them on the article's Talk page. Hohenloh + 20:38, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I do assume good faith and I apologize if I added too many fact tags, it just seemed like they were wanting. The article is fine, as you point out. I just wanted to clarify. Yours, Quis separabit? 21:53, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

Leonard(')s Corner[edit]

Since you have edited the article about Clanbrassil Street and contributed a picture of Leonard(')s Corner, I wonder are you certain that there is an apostrophe in the name of the corner? I recently contributed a picture of the corner for the Dublin street corners article, but although the pub in the picture has an apostrophe in its name, the spelling of the Leonards Corner post office across the road from it contains no apostrophe, so now I am gripped by doubt about the spelling of the file I uploaded. What do you think? — O'Dea (talk) 04:22, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

There has to be an apostrophe in there, either before or after the "s". The name originally comes from a 19th-century property owner named Leonard, who owned several buildings on the corner. He sold them around 1890 - I have a picture of the advertisement from the Irish Times. So "Leonard's Corner" would be correct. Nearby you've got Kelly's Corner, named after the owner of the tobacconist on the corner, where two journalists were shot dead in 1916 by the same madman who shot Sheehy-Skeffington (see article on Portobello, Dublin). Hohenloh + 18:13, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
I agree the apostrophe makes more sense as a general rule, but sometimes no apostrophe can be correct, a bit like the absent question mark that one might think should be in What's Going On by Marvin Gaye. — O'Dea (talk) 05:47, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Kelly's-corner jpg[edit]

Hohenloh,

I would greatly appreciate if you know and can confirm who the boy is that is pictured in the photo 'Kelly's Corner'; and, how the picture came into your posession?

Thank you in advance, gcasstl — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gcasstl (talkcontribs) 19:02, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Where does this photo appear? Hohenloh + 16:00, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
OK, I see the one you mean. As far as I recall, this photo was among a bunch of photos I inherited after the death of my mother a few years ago - she collected family photos and old photos of the area, which I scanned and then distributed to family members. I have no idea who is in the photo - do you know? Hohenloh + 16:27, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your quick response. I believe it is my father. He was born and raised on Portobello Harbour and lived on Bloomfield Avenue after that. Having similar pictures of him in the neighborhood of Portobello, I was hoping the photo was annotated and my intuition could be confirmed. Thanks again. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gcasstl (talkcontribs) 21:52, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Henry Williamson[edit]

Hi. You were somewhat hasty in reverting my careful edits to this article, and threw the baby out with the bathwater. None of the sources was introduced by my edits, which merely tidied, reordered and rectified quotes which did not match the cited sources. I therefore ask you to do a proper editing job instead of mindlessly reverting edits which took me a long time to decide on. In fact, you have reinstated the errors and redundant duplication of links which caused me to work on the article in the first place. Also, your peremptory rejection of the article's major third-party source as "racist" and "antisemitic" does not meet the WP:NPOV requirement. Please argue your case on the article's Talk page before taking such action again. The requirement is that you provide opposing/balancing arguments and sources rather than simply reject the validity of a third-party source. If you do not wish to exercise such care and consideration, I would suggest that you refrain from editing the article any further. Cheers, Bjenks (talk) 01:49, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

I have replied on the Talk page of the article in question. Hohenloh + 03:35, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Chicken and chips[edit]

Hi - in what way do you consider [4] not relevant? They are both similar dishes, and the connection to me seems obvious. Fish and chips is similarly linked from chicken and chips, neither are linked within the article, therefore a see also seems the simplest way of linking them.  An optimist on the run! 06:44, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

I don't see how the complexity of Fish and chips can be compared to the simplicity of Chicken and chips. Hohenloh + 01:41, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry? In what way is fish and chips any more complex than chicken and chips? They're both fried dishes, served as cheap take-aways, and often from the same establishments. (NB, if you're referring to the complexity of the articles rather than the subjects, this is completely irrelevant.) From [[WP:SEEALSO}}: The links in the "See also" section do not have to be directly related to the topic of the article, because one purpose of the "See also" links is to enable readers to explore topics that are only peripherally relevant. I've restored the link.  An optimist on the run! 07:40, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Dublin Forum[edit]

I have removed the proposed deletion tag you placed on Dublin Forum, as it was discussed at AfD in 2005 and per policy is permanently ineligible for proposed deletion. I only did this to comply with policy and have no comment on the merits of your deletion nomination. If you wish to pursue deletion, feel free to open another AfD. —KuyaBriBriTalk 13:45, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

But will the same thing not happen again? Hohenloh + 15:39, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
It may, it may not. The last AfD was over 6 years ago; people's opinions may change. I've seen articles deleted at second or third AfD nominations before. Prod is not a way to circumvent consensus; it is only for cases where deletion is uncontroversial and where a full discussion would likely be a waste of system resources and everyone's time. The fact that someone opined to keep the article in an AfD means that this particular article's deletion is not uncontroversial, which is why the "no prod after AfD" rule is in place. —KuyaBriBriTalk 16:36, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for the information - I'll follow it up. Hohenloh + 16:39, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Montgomery Hyde[edit]

In what respect could he be regarded as an Irish politician? --Counter-revolutionary (talk) 11:43, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

He was born in Ireland (according to the Wikipedia Manual of Style (Ireland-related articles), people born before Independence in 1922 have their birthplace referred to as Ireland). Hohenloh + 11:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
I appreciate that point, it makes some sense (notwithstanding the very obvious point that Ireland was not then independent). However, surely that would make him a "politician born in Ireland" or a "British politician born in Ireland". As it is, one would think he was a politician in Ireland, which he was not. --Counter-revolutionary (talk) 16:06, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
Then it could be left simply as "Politician"? I'm not really fussy about it one way or the other in this case, but my attention was drawn to the bot automatically describing what I would call obviously Irish politicians as "British". Hohenloh + 12:49, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Hello Hohenloh; it appears you have been reverting edits to images changed by Fbot and its updated version, User:Svenbot. If you wish, add the {{nobots}} tag to the page to have the bot not change the page. Thank you. Piandcompany (talk) 20:02, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed that, thanks. This is just a temporary measure until I get around to checking the images fully before putting them onto Commons.Hohenloh + 20:12, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes, sorry about that. The bot is very stubborn in that it has no memory of how often it's preformed the same action to the same file. After the end of this week, the task you're running into will only run every two weeks, but it's run a bunch of times recently because it was being set up this week.

Peer review[edit]

Hi Hohenloh, I was wondering would you mind giving Irish Volunteers (18th century) a run over and tell me what you think? I've re-written the vast majority of the article and expanded it greatly. I've still more stuff to add and have to find a way to sort out the ever dwindling "Politics" section as to what to do with it - incorporate into another section or rewrite it or what? Any suggestions for improvement would be gratefully accepted too.

Hoping to get the article to at least a B-rating.

Yes, will be glad to do so. Hohenloh + 20:41, 13 August 2012 (UTC)

Translation of 95 year old philosophy.[edit]

Greetings,

I am trying to get a team together who would finally translate "Sistema di logica come teoria del conoscere" into English. I thought Wikipedia's list of Italian-to-English translators might be a good group to 'hit up' on this subject. If personal assistance cannot be provided, perhaps suggestions or helping point me in the right direction of who might be willing to help? Best regards & thank you. Nagelfar (talk) 05:11, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Chapelroyal-ceiling.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Chapelroyal-ceiling.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Irish Family Planning Association until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion template from the top of the article. Hell In A Bucket (talk) 08:01, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Linguists from Ireland[edit]

A tag has been placed on Linguists from Ireland, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

G6: Move/Housekeeping; category created in mainspace. I have created the category with content from this page, see Category:Linguists from Ireland

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time.

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. -- Patchy1 12:56, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Wikify[edit]

At Mark Donne you directed me to WikiProject Wikify, and on the page it states, "Following a TfD nomination, the {{wikify}} tag has been deprecated in favor of more specific maintenance templates." This is why I removed it. I'm not sure what one to replace it with as I don't know what specific wikify-covered problem there is with the article. Cheers Delsion23 (talk) 01:19, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Firstly, thank you for bringing this to my attention - I rarely use the Wikify template and was not aware that it had been deprecated a few months ago. I noted in the discussion on the template that editors have, or had, different opinions on what it meant. I assumed the "Ten simple steps to thoroughly wikify an article" at Wikipedia:WikiProject Wikify/Drives/Instructions was how to approach an article tagged with this template. I also assumed, wrongly, as it appears, that you as an experienced editor would spot what needs to be fixed, but I see you take a different approach to the use of the template. I think the handiest thing to do would be for me to effect the changes I think necessary. Please feel free to modify any of my edits as you think fit. Hohenloh + 20:48, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Further to our conversation last month, an updated version of AWB is now available that doesn't add the wikify template, and instead adds underlinked or dead end. It is to be found here (version 8853). Thanks! Delsion23 (talk) 01:39, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Paul Vincent Carroll[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Paul Vincent Carroll, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.irishlivesremembered.ie/memorial.html?mid=255.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

AWB[edit]

I...uh, wow. Sorry - I'd forgotten I'd even written that, it's been so long ago. Yeah, I'd disregard it. I don't think there's anything worth looking at there - in fact, I'll nominate it for deletion right now, to get rid of it once and for all.

I'm not sure there's a good task-oriented guide for AWB, but I can tell you what I use it for. It's great for talkpage creation, for instance; you can load up a talkpage template and create a bunch of pages from a list. I also use it for recategorization and typo fixing. Example: I found a lot of articles categorized as Category:Actors from California and Category:People from Los Angeles, California when we have Category:Actors from Los Angeles, California. I used CatScan to make a list of the articles, saved it to my sandbox, and then recategorized using AWB. It's great for something like that, especially if the number of articles in question is especially large (I do it for recategorizing National Register of Historic Places articles, also). I use it to replace stub tags sometimes, and it's good for fixing typos. Template replacing, too, sometimes.

What I would say, basically, is that AWB is useful for any small, repetitive task that can easily become drudgery. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 15:24, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

The site www.chaptersofdublin.com no longer exists, so I removed it from the reference, while still (hopefully) retaining the rest of the information. The "cleanup" attribution was assigned by AWB, which I was using at the time, not by me. Hohenloh + 00:13, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
In such cases isn't {{deadlink}} more appropriate to give time to find an archived version -- or check for one yourself -- (because as can be seen there is an archived version on the wayback machine archive)? --PBS (talk)

Fish & Chips[edit]

Dear Sir - I see that you take wikipedia seriously, as indeed I do. May I ask why you keep re editing my additions on fish & chips? Every fish & chip shop in Britain and quite a few in Ireland will sell pickles to go with your fish and chips. You can choose from jars of pickled onions, pickled eggs (my particular favourite) & Gherkins. There is nothing controversial in my comments so there is no need to remove them. I have now sourced/referenced the information for pickled eggs and added an external link to an article on fish and chip shops in Britain.This is surely enough. BTW I was in Dublin last month visiting relatives.(dorkinglad(talk)14:05, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. I'm sure you are aware of burden. Hohenloh + 12:14, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Queries about your uploaded images[edit]

I notice an old picture you uploaded had been deleted and there's more above about to be deleted if a source reference isn't given. I'm sure they are eligible to be kept so it would be nice if you gave a source. A strange thing I noticed in the history is that you go to some trouble to stop them being moved to Commons. Is there a reason for this? Dmcq (talk) 09:05, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

When I first started to upload images to Wikipedia, I understood that I was complying with the regulations as they then existed. I checked many articles containing images to ensure that I was following the correct procedure. I already had a large stock of photos, many of which I had inherited, others acquired through local history groups, from old newspapers and magazines which I came across in libraries etc., which I had scanned and uploaded to my PC, and others from various sources on the web. There seemed to be no problems with the images I uploaded until bots started moving them to Commons, whereupon several were deleted because they did not meet the more stringent requirements for Commons. Recently more emphasis seems to be placed on the source, which IMHO was not considered very important a few years ago. In the case you mentioned, where source is missing, I need time to check through through my collections to find the source - if they are moved to Commons without the source they will be deleted immediately. The notice placed on image files to be moved to Commons mentions the need to ensure that the image files fulfill the criteria for Commons. I put a lot of time and effort into this work but sadly the apparently stricter criteria for uploading image files will mean that many image files will be deleted. Hohenloh + 01:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
The source is important for determining if an image is PD or not. Take File:M ogrady.jpg & File:St-john-church-dublin-1884.jpg which are the ones I'm specifically interested in. Depending on whether it was ever published or not, and if so when, it might not be in PD as yet. The O'Grady image on Flickr but not released so there is still some doubt surrounding it. St John's in here]. Both are currently tagged for deletion but I've reset the clock for a week hoping that you can come up with sources. NtheP (talk) 17:33, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Michael Scanlon (Poet)[edit]

Moved post to new section:

Dear Hohenloh: I recently edited the article Michael Scanlon (Poet) to correct the spelling of his last name to Scanlan. I am a relative of his (he was my grandfather's uncle), and he did indeed spell his last name "Scanlan" and not "Scanlon." I could not change the subect heading to reflect this correction. Would you please do this? By the way, the inspiration for my Wikipedia name "Planxty" was that Michael's son Kickham gave that name to one of his daughters. Many thanks, Planxty2 Planxty2 (talk) 01:26, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry but all the sources I have checked so far spell the name Scanlon - one of these is from 1867 and another from 1917 (his obituary). I can add a re-direct from the name Scanlan but I would have to have some verifiable source to show that he did indeed use an alternative spelling. Hohenloh + 13:59, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
Hohenlon: This is Planxty2. I corrected the spelling of the name of Michael Scanlan (Poet) on the Wikipedia page. As I write this, I am looking at a photograph of the plaque dedicated to him that is located in his hometown of Castlemahon. Michael Scanlan is a relative of mine, and he deserves to have his surname spelled correctly. You can "google: him to verify the spelling. Also look at the collection of his poems in the book Love and Land, which is a compilation of his poems.
Once again, I must re-iterate that Wikipedia depends on verifiable sources. The sources cited in the article are consistent in the spelling of his name during his lifetime. The spelling of surnames often change over time, and it may have happened in this case, but the sources show that the name as spelt in the article is correct. Hohenloh + 00:12, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Moira Buffini[edit]

Although I searched for it with inconclusive results, I was still wondering if Cumbria and Cheshire are related. Some sources on internet say that Moira Buffini was born in that county (Cheshire) as one of the article's category which refers to it. But on the other hand, the article tells us she's from Carlisle in Cumbria. Thanks a lot! And sorry for my english.(Naya Amaru (talk) 15:28, 5 September 2013 (UTC))

Rathgar[edit]

Hi, I think your edit to the above is not correct - surely the Grand Canal lies north of Rathgar, not south? Regards Denisarona (talk) 14:33, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Yes, of course. Mind was wandering...Hohenloh + 14:38, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

How good is your memory?[edit]

In November 2008 you made this edit. Can you remember which DNB article you were referring when you added {{DNB}} if so please add it to the template with with either the parameter wstitle=name if it is on Wikisource or |title=name if it is not. -- PBS (talk) 09:44, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

English Cemetery, Naples[edit]

This edit on 16 November 2008 to the Wikipedia article English Cemetery, Naples added the template {{DNB}} but I am not sure which article or articles you were referring. The only article that mentions the English Cemetery in Naples is s:Somerville, Mary (DNB00). I know it was a long time ago and it will be difficult to recall why you include de it, but could you please have a look at the edit and either add an article to the template or delete it. (at the moment it flags up in Category:Articles incorporating DNB text without Wikisource reference) -- PBS (talk) 16:51, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Contraception in the Reublic of Ireland[edit]

As per WP:BOLDTITLE Links should not be placed in the boldface reiteration of the title in the opening sentence of a lead and WP:IRE-IRL An exception is where the state forms a major component of the topic (e.g. on articles relating to states, politics or governance) where "Ireland" should be preferred and the island should be referred to as the "island of Ireland" or similar. The is most definitely a goverence article. Cheers. Murry1975 (talk) 15:07, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I know all that - what is "The availability of contraception in the Ireland was illegal from 1935 until 1980" supposed to mean? Hohenloh + 15:12, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
It means I made a boo-boo (not to be confused with bóbó). Murry1975 (talk) 15:25, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Rock of Cashel edits[edit]

Hi, Could you please stop deleting my posts from the Rock page? My family are buried in the Rock grounds going back many generations, my Great Uncle Florence being the most recent as of a few months ago. My grandmother and her siblings are the last of our family that are allowed to be buried within the Rock grounds. I will upload pictures and files as soon as wikipedia english allows me, due to the fact my account is new i have to wait 4 days before my account allows uploads.

Thanks

Mike
