Dorset street[edit]

Hi Jack,

You posted a photograph of Dorset street on the page about Jack London's "People of the Abyss". I am researching this area and would be interested in using the photo. Do you own the rights to it or are you able to tell me who does?

Thanks

Help a new DYK reviewer?[edit]

Hi, saw you reviewed and blessed Elmer Flick at DYK, immediately under that article at T:TDYK is Beholder (horse), which has been reviewed and approved, but the reviewer noted that he/she would like one other person to look over the review because it is their first-ever DYK review. Would you be able to pop over and do so? (My nomination, so I can't). Thanks! Montanabw(talk) 23:07, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

What ho, Jack! I don't usually bother you with my peer reviews, as I don't think you go in for such things as a rule, but I think perhaps Ralph Richardson might be of interest to you. Quite understand if not, and there is absolutely no hurry at all even if you are interested. If you do look in, please run an eye over the short list of questions at the top of the peer review page, on which I'd be grateful for colleagues' thoughts. – Tim riley (talk) 20:30, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

I have had this problem before and received an exemption. Jack1956 (talk) 10:51, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

You should go to WP:IPBE and use the email interface there to request a permanent exemption, then. Daniel Case (talk) 02:20, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

IP block exempt[edit]

I have granted your account an exemption from IP blocking. This will allow you to edit through full blocks affecting your IP address when you are logged in.

Please read the page Wikipedia:IP block exemption carefully, especially the section on IP block exemption conditions.

Note in particular that you are not permitted to use this newly-granted right to edit Wikipedia via anonymous proxies, or disruptively. If you do, or there is a serious concern of abuse, then the right may be removed by any administrator.

Appropriate usage and compliance with the policy may be checked periodically, due to the nature of block exemption, and block exemption will be removed when no longer needed (for example, when the block it is related to expires).

I hope this will enhance your editing, and allow you to edit successfully and without disruption. ​—DoRD (talk)​ 11:54, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Margaret Rodgers[edit]

Thank you for your review. Margaret was indeed a remarkable woman. She was extraordinarily canny and diplomatic, and a real survivor. Would have made an excellent prime minister. I observe that you are located in England; let me say that the fact that Margaret succeeded in working with four archbishops who were as essentially different as Marcus Loane, Donald Robinson (bishop), Harry Goodhew and Peter Jensen (bishop) is amazing in itself. The article Anglican Diocese of Sydney gives part of the picture. Amandajm (talk) 00:45, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

It was a great read about a fascinating woman. The article itself was a pleasure to review - well written and fully referenced. Jack1956 (talk) 06:48, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Margaret Rodgers (deaconess)[edit]

[1] No. I am really not happy about that hook. I had already removed the additional quotation that the hook is based on, before I realised that EEng had turned it into a hook and you had OKed it. I have left my reasons. The subject has only been dead a fortnight. I was at her funeral and her memorial service. I want the article to do her justice. The addition to the article (on which that hook was based) put a focus on her media role that overshadowed ever other aspect of her remarkable life. Amandajm (talk) 10:26, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Jack! Yes, Margaret really was a remarkable person. If you come from out of the diocese and are ignorant of the politics in Sydney, it is hard to appreciate just how very remarkable she was. I believe that her commitment was to the survival and preservation of the Anglican Church in Sydney, and that one of her main skills was what you might call "damage control". Several speakers at the memorial service got dangerously close to being non-p.c.. There was a point at which I thought that the dean, (who conducted interviews of the various speakers, wearing a suit and tie, like a T.V presenter) was going to spit the dummy. The bishops, of whom there were a number present, were properly attired. Unfortunately, the Bishop of Gippsland's funeral was the same day, and a number of people who wanted to attend both, couldn't. Amandajm (talk) 10:53, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Of course, just from reading an article we can never really get the feel of a personality and what they actually really achieved in their lives and the effect they had on others. I hope people get some sense of this remarkable lady from your article. Jack1956 (talk) 11:01, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Hippodrome, Aldershot[edit]

Hi Jack. I've just been looking through your interesting article which reminded me of many of the variety stars of my early days. I took the liberty of moving the title simply to Hippodrome, Aldershot (in line with Hippodrome, London, etc.) as this appears to be the usual style. It also makes it easier to find the article in searches. I found the capitalised "The Hippodrome" unusual in the running text and changed the definite article to lower case. I look forward to seeing the article on DYK soon.--Ipigott (talk) 05:56, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Aldershot Hippodrome interior.jpg[edit]

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

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 21:12, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

  • my original non- free tag was wrong as I have since discovered the image was taken in 1913 when the theatre opened. I therefore uploaded this slightly larger version and changed the licence accordingly. It is not a non-free image as it was taken and published before 1923. See here http://www.arthurlloyd.co.uk/AldershotTheatres/AldershotHippodrome.htm for verification. Jack1956 (talk) 21:31, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Move to John Brodie Innes[edit]

As indicated at Talk:John Brodie-Innes#Move to John Brodie Innes, hyphenation of the name seems to be an error introduced by thePeerage.com on the basis of English practice which is not applicable to the Scottish peerage, and is contradicted by more reliable sources which are now available.
