Earth Abides[edit]

Magnificent job on Earth Abides! Note that TV documentary Aftermath Population Zero has many scenes similar to passages in Earth Abides: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/aftermath/ Pepso2 (talk) 12:57, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

Hello, I left a cursory review of Earth Abides, which you added to the Novels WikiProject PR page. You can read my comments [Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Peer review/Earth Abides here]. Do let me know if you have any questions or comments. María (habla conmigo) 17:50, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

You're very welcome for the review, but I wouldn't sweat the small stuff too much. You're already off to a great start; I'm very impressed that you were able to find that many reliable sources (aside from the Wikipedia articles, that is)! I've found that researching is the easiest part about writing an article; it's the anal retentive attention to Manual of Style details that will kill you. If you ever have five hours to kill, there's always WP:MOS to keep you busy. :) Good luck! María (habla conmigo) 18:10, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Earth abides/La Terre demeure[edit]

Hello Jacqke,

I wrote the short page about "La terre demeure" in the french wikipedia. This few words don't explain the impact this book had on me. The french edition is no more available and I live with its souvenir.

Your version is very extensive and covers many points of view : bravo !


Arnold Shultz[edit]

Hello, do you have any sources for your statement that the fiddle player in the photo that you linked to in the Shultz article ist Clarence Wilson? To my knowledge, the fiddler is believed to be "Uncle Pen" Vandiver. The yodeling cowboy (talk) 14:16, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, My source for that link is from the book "In the Country of Country" by Nicholas Dawidoff. Dawidoff seems to me a credible researcher who spent a great deal of time researching the origins of Country Music. That being said, I am still pursuing a definitive answer on that, so that the photo can be used on Wikipedia.Jacqke (talk) 15:19, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Draft misplaced in mainspace[edit]

Hello. You placed an article that you said in your edit summary that was supposed to be a personal sandbox, but it was misplaced in the main encyclopedia space. I have moved it back into your userspace for you, it is located at User:Jacqke/draft article on mandores. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:14, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! Never used the sandbox before.Jacqke (talk) 01:19, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, to get a user subpage it must have your username and then This→/← type of slash (I can never remember which is the backslash and which is the forwardslash). Then you can title it whatever you want. So it would be User:Jacqke/insert title here. Again, If you have any questions I am happy to answer them. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:41, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

refs[edit]

If you name a reference, you only have to type it once, then just call the ref name after that. Ref's go after punctuation, but I'm sure you knew that being a wikipedia copy editor and all that goes with it. Merry Christmas!--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 03:32, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I have to admit that it has been a long time since I actively copy edited; simple fact is I generally lack the time and tend to get on when I have no sleep and therefore lack a brain. I appreciate your reminders. Merry ChristmasJacqke (talk) 06:40, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Seattle Cartoonists' Club[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Seattle Cartoonists' Club requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to 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 tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance 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. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 23:14, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Benjamin Brown Martin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Benjamin Brown Martin has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Yasht101 07:50, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

An Article[edit]

I was thinking you might appreciate this article that I created today. Perhaps you might even expand it a bit if you have time? I've included enough sources to write up a decent biography, I just didn't have time today. User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 02:28, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help! Great work! I have nominated the article for DYK, and I have also created the article Silvio Ranieri if you are interested.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 15:06, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Wow! That cubist Mandolin is amazing, and the story is even more so!User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 17:19, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. It was a very lucky find. Researchers and that auction house have made this article easier to put together.Jacqke (talk) 17:23, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 22:24, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Gittern[edit]

Many thanks! It's taken me a while to get the nerve up to join in the work, I am a bit slow with anything other than Sibelius or Cubase (and I'm not an expert with these either!). Hopefully we can eliminate the speculative theories many reference works tend to repeat as fact and use actual historical source material to expand the early instrument articles.

Apologies - no talk button, haven't figured that out yet Pupsikon 05:09, 10 October 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pupsikon (talkcontribs)

Hi Jacqke, here's a line of thought I would welcome your assistance with. I see articles on the guitar and related stuff which constantly repeat the hoary myth (in my humble opinion) of the Arabic origin for the guitar, gittern, and so forth.

Here's a provisional list of the problems I have with it - I would be grateful for feedback.

1. No actual historical sources - nothing in any documents, letters, etc., from the period to support the theory. Nada absolute. I keep finding a reference to 'guitarra latina' and 'guitarra morisco' with no attributable source or context, so if you know where this comes from (apart from modern encyclopedias trotting out the theory) - it's a good place to investigate further I think..

2. The Cantigas de Santa Maria illustration appearing in articles like the one on the guitar (third one down) to support the idea. There are no captions on the original document to go with the illustrations, and no indications in the text to support the identification of any instruments, let alone the guitar. So it's all guesswork really... I could say the picture in question has an instrument on the right which resembles a gittern and one on the left that resembles a citole. Would I be wrong?

3. The assumption made that no instruments like the gittern existed in Iberia before the Arab conquests just frankly doesn't hold water. Apart from the linguistic evidence (which deserves more attention for a whole number of reasons), it's worth considering what kind of society existed there prior to the invasion.

The fact the 'Iberians' (I'm using the term loosely here to support the line of thought) lacked the military capacity (or even did not wish), to resist the invasion; is no indication of the musical culture existing at the time. I won't waste your time with text here, but if you check out Wiki stuff on the history of the Roman Empire in the Iberian peninsula I think you'll get the picture of my drift here.

There's loads more - if you want to collaborate further please feel free to get back to me. User:Pupsikon Pupsikon 21:03, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
