Fair use rationale for Image:NormanMacLean ARiverRunsThroughIt.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:NormanMacLean ARiverRunsThroughIt.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and 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.BetacommandBot 00:34, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Novels

As part of WikiProject James Bond, we have a collaboration of the fortnight (two weeks) and for this two weeks (first two weeks of July), our collaboration is on the novel Live and Let Die (novel). The project also put it up to the WikiProject Novels Collaboration of the Month, hoping that both projects may be able to better get it up to higher standard. Currently Live and Let Die is tied with the most supports, but being the newer one, will probably won't pick it. But if both projects collobarating on it, would be much better. If you could give your support, it would be much appreciated. SpecialWindler talk 04:30, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

{{WikiProject Novels}}

Thanks for letting me know.  :) So you know, I took the talkpage template I was using from your project page - you may want to update that if you haven't already. Katharineamy 16:31, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Wow, I lose at noticing comments I've got. I don't actually remember where I found it, but I thought it was on the project page. Maybe it wasn't! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Katharineamy (talkcontribs) 19:07, August 20, 2007 (UTC).

Novel series / novels

Been considering tackling Crhis Bunch's Dragonmaster trilogy, but I don't think it would warrant separate articles for each novel to start with. But the Wikiproject Books didn't have an easily findable guideline for novel series article? Should I just put down the article in form starting with following format with novel infoboxes set into the corresponding novel's part? 'General' 'Novel 1' 'Novel 2' 'Novel 3' --TLein 10:52, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Kafka Categories

Great work on the Kafka categories. I would suggest the "Books by Kafka" be changed to "Nonfiction books by Kafka" to exclude the two other categories (novels and story collections) and include the five books of letters. AshcroftIleum 22:02, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:JanetteRallison FameGlory.jpg)

Thanks for uploading Image:JanetteRallison FameGlory.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 03:03, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

Invite to join Novels WikiProject

Thank your very much for the invite.

I would gladly join the Novels WikiProject however to be fair I must admit that my availability for participating to the project would be erratic at best. If that is not a problem with you, then count me in, otherwise I'll keep on providing updates from time to time as my schedule permits like I'm doing now.

Best regards and kudos to the whole team for the oustanding job you're doing.

Fair use rationale for Image:WitoldGombrowicz TransAtlantyk.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:WitoldGombrowicz TransAtlantyk.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" 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.

Thanks for the invite. I've debated for some time over whether my wiki-energies would be better put to use devoted to a single project rather than scattered over books, opera, and whatever else. But, I can't decide! I'm sure you'll continue to see me around the Nabokov articles. Dybryd 18:29, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

WP Novels question

Is adding "pp" after the number of pages in book/novel infoboxes an established practice in the Project? I've seen you implement this before, but it seems redundant (and kind of ugly) considering that the infobox already puts the word "Pages" right next to the number. TAnthony 14:50, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Image:DavidWebberEricFlint_1633.jpg

I have tagged Image:DavidWebberEricFlint_1633.jpg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. Thank you. ShakespeareFan00 10:34, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Novels tag

Just curious, since {{WPNovels}} and {{NovelsWikiProject}} give the same results and both of them can be used identically with full piping (i.e. {{WPNovels|class= |importance= |auto= |attention= |needs-infobox=}} and {{NovelsWikiProject|class= |importance= |auto= |attention= |needs-infobox=}} what's the difference? SkierRMH 16:12, 10 July 2007 (UTC)

Only that the second is the official wikiproject banner. Particularly when searching for the banner string it is useful to know what to look for. In fact why do we have two redirects to NovelsWikiProject.

Kushiel's Dart: Still a Stub??

Hi! I was looking at the Kushiel's Dart page. It says on the page that the plot summary is overly long, yet the talk page says its a stub class article. Is it really still a stub?? eveningscribe 07:08, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Can we keep this conversation in one spot? I'm getting dizzy.  ;) So... is it?

Different people like different thinks of a talk page dialogue. So short answer no, but I did say that and I have adjusted the rating - at least I thought I did. In these article Plot is just not enough. I know loads of article are like that but that is not what wikipedia is about. The bulk of any article needs to be "out of universe" in style. Also verfiability, npov and referencing are key. Thanks. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:06, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
The short answer is that no, the article isn't npov and referenced? *Just clarifying* Evening Scribe 08:24, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
MY fault for trying to add value to the conversation I'm not really saying these things apply to this article currently. Some of them did and that's why I mentioned them - it is much improved now but still could do with extra work, perhaps in the area of critical comment and reviews from respected sources. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:28, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
No no, its all good, I just wanted to be clear because I'm so new. I'm learning from you.  :) So between your first and second reply tonight, I read the plot summary. Oh my GOD that was pretty awful, I'm itching to clean it up. Also, can you direct me to a wiki policy about spoilers/ Because I think THAT plot summary has too many spoilers.  :p Evening Scribe 08:31, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Oh dear, spoiler policy! there is one (a guideline) about that at WP:SPOILER, however there is "loads" of debate and disagreement about it. The current trend if to assume that if the spoiler is in a plot section that that is enough to be clear that such a spoiler should be expected. Cant' agree myself but that is what is said by many. Personally I have alway tried to include a "plot introdcution" that is spoiler free and then a "plot summary" which "can" include spoilers and is more detailed, although not the majority of the article. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:44, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! Have a good night. Evening Scribe 10:14, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

Novel related news

What is a novel? What are the elements that must be found in any piece of writing for it to be considered a novel? I think it fair to say that traditional definitions of the word “novel” work along these lines: A novel is a fictitious prose story of book length. In my view, a novel has six basic elements: 1) It must have a society of characters; 2) They must be undergoing transformations; 3) And those must be in the course of a sustained prose narrative; 4) The sustained prose narrative must be impelled by a plot; 5) And it must be unified by clearly discernible central themes; 6) And to the extent possible, it must be universalised by a complex architecture of allegorical and symbolical sub-strata. If I write those six basic elements into a single definition, I come up with this: A novel is a society of characters, undergoing transformations, in the course of a sustained prose narrative, which is impelled by a plot, unified by clearly discernible central themes, and universalised by a complex architecture of allegorical and symbolical sub-strata.

Current debates
  • After lengthy discussions about the {{Infobox_Book}} it has settled down at a possibly permanent layout. Any suggestions are still of course welcome.
  • Also the important book cover debate mentioned first above.

Monobook

Greetings. For some reason your monobook is appearing in Category:Unassessed film articles. SkierRMH 23:02, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Your expertise required

Someone created {{Dune character box}}, which I think will be useful but is behaving badly; it won't stay at the top of articles and somehow is merging with the TOC (see Gaius Helen Mohiam). I've tried to troubleshoot it but I'm no expert, my only solution would be to recreate it from scratch, which I don't want to do. Can you take a look and see if you can quickly determine the issue? TAnthony 16:02, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Can't immediately see It and I must go! Try checking the number of opening and ending elements that is often a gotcha! :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 16:13, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

WPNovels

Hi Kevin, I'm excited to have joined Wikiproject Novels and look forward to helping with more projects! I've put in a request at WP:AWB to be added to the list, hopefully by Monday I'll be able to use this to start saving that mass of book covers. I think once we have a basic "book cover image guide" up, we should link to it from {{WPNOVELS}}. I'm going to be away for the weekend, but once I'm back next week I'm looking forward to getting to work! --JayHenry 20:21, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:WalterScott QuentinDurwood.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:WalterScott QuentinDurwood.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" 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.BetacommandBot 04:49, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted after seven days according to our Criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:49, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Sparknotes References?

Hi, I'm a new user and I'm wondering whether it's permissible to cite Sparknotes or Cliffsnotes as references in an article about a novel. --Massyold 23:16, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Dark Wind Blowing

Hi Kevinalewis

Hope you don't mind but I have undone the edit you did to the Wikipedia page I set up for my students to create for a class assessment task. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Wind_Blowing

I am trying to teach students how to use Wikipedia; how encyclopedias are valued in new ways, why text is valued academically etc.

They are going to create literal intertextual links that create an encyclopedic record of texts on bullying using their references from this text.

If you could leave the headings in place I would really appreciate - I am planning on starting with students over the next few days and building up over the next term ( 11 weeks).

(Ccb2007 11:28, 16 July 2007 (UTC))

Dark Wind Blowing

I appreciate your criticisms, however, if Wikipedia is a public space where encyclopedia references can be created than I do not see how my students developing an encyclopedic entry is any different to any of the other entries or edits on novels such as Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World etc. Everything has to start somewhere. I feel as if I am being censored here - not what I thought the role of Wikipedia was.

I regularly present at ICT conferences on Wikipedia supporting it when other academics howl it down - I am trying to support this concept not destroy it!

This page is meant to be a very sophisticated, accurate exercise and I would appreciate the chance to create and develop the page without the work being removed before ( or during) students work develops.

Can I please ask you to indulge us and allow the headings to be replaced - even if it goes against your personal design and rationale for the entry?

Dark Wind Blowing

Whilst the headings are showing up when I go to edit the whole page they are not showing when I open the page. Can this please be adjusted ( or can you inform me how to ensure it is so, so that students can edit each section separately please?

I am happy to put in any templates you wish that meet your Wiki Novel Project for students to complete as part of their work.

Unspecified source for Image:AxelTeichmann_promo.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:AxelTeichmann_promo.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, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 07:36, 17 July 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MER-C 07:36, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Infoboxes

I appreciate your efforts to improve the infoboxes on a series of articles that I have edited (such as A Vindication of the Rights of Woman and Maria: or, The Wrongs of Woman)), but I'm afraid that you are only introducing errors. For example, I have linked to Kingdom of Britain rather than United Kingdom in many articles because that page is more historically relevant; the books were not published in the "United Kingdom" since it didn't exist yet. Also, please stop inserting "Hardback and paperback" into eighteenth-century infoboxes. No books in the eighteenth century were printed in either hardback or paperback. Binding was done separately from printing, often at the reader's request. Thanks. Awadewit | talk 10:48, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: your edits to Runaround

Hi, just noticed your amendments to the article on the Asimov short story Runaround. No problem with the edits you've made, but I am curious as to your reclassification of the article as a stub. As far as I can find, there isn't much else that could be expanded upon in there.

I'm interested in getting a bunch of Asimov short story articles up to scratch, so any hints you may have on this one would be appreciated. Thanks. - Liquidfinale 10:09, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Many thanks for the advice. And I'll have a look into my reasonably extensive library of Asimov paraphernalia for reviews and reactions to this and his other stories. Liquidfinale 19:59, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Re: AWB and Kingbotk Plugin

Good, thanks for letting us know. I think we are not far off releasing it properly now!

It should, in theory, be something fairly similar to what it was before, just its part of AWB now, not part of Steve's plugin.

There are a couple of minor tweaks and such that need doing, and some that have been done, but its not like its completely broken or anything!!

Unusual Adoption Request

Hi! Im an English teacher in Toluca Mexico (west of Mexico City). My Advanced B classes will be contributing to Wikipedia as the focus of their English course for Fall 2007. I am looking for people who would like to mentor my students (who will be working in groups) as they do the following assignments: Edit and article (adding a citation), writing a stub with a citation, translating an English language article for Spanish Wikipedia and for the final project, writing a full article for English Wiki (they can expand on the stub mentioned previously). What I would like to do is put a list of "mentors/adopters" on my talk page as a kind of short cut for my students, who have limited time to get things done. The semester begings Aug 6, but the real Wikipedia work wont begin until the beginning of Sept. If you would like to add your name to my list, please go to my talk page and add it there, perhaps with a short introduction, if you like.

Thank you!

I noticed that you updated my images for these books with other bigger ones but you did not insert a fair use rationale, could you take a couple of moments to do that?!

Book vs. Short story infobox template

Hello, Kevin. I noticed you changed a bunch of the infoboxes on the Poe short stories I watch into the short story infobox template. I had changed them to the books infobox so that the illustration could show up; this was actually discussed on the short story task force page, and I believe you were the one that suggested it. I still strongly think that the short story infobox could use an image field and that would solve the problem. Anyway, is this okay? --Midnightdreary 15:01, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Hmm... I didn't realize the intention for that image field was first covers from first editions. I was under the impression, though, that it's usually preferable to have some kind of image on the upper right corner at the top of each article (I got that in a peer review recently). So in this case, should I just move these illustrations to somewhere else in the article? --Midnightdreary 15:59, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Journey to the Center of the Earth book cover

Hi, I have replaced the book infobox image on Journey to the Center of the Earth with a PD image, moving Image:JulesVerne AJounreyToTheCentreOfTheEarth.jpg down further. Do you recall where you obtained that picture from? if it is PD, we can move it to Wikimedia Commons. John Vandenberg 07:55, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

No, I can't remember, probably an old Ebay sale and it isn't a particularly significant edition. Certainly not first. The edition you have put up is about as close as we are likely to get to 1st. So I would stick with that. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:19, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

WP:WARRIORS

Hi, a while ago on my talk page you said that you might be able to help with the template currently used for WP:WARRIORS. Well I was wondering if you could put an area where people can put assesments for the article similar to what {{NovelsWikiProject}} has. I really have no idea how and only know super basic stuff, and would really appreciate it if you could help out. Thanks,  Bella Swan(Talk!) 12:50, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

As an assesment section I meant a place where you would put what you think your ratings/class would be for the article (such as A class, B class and so on) and how important it would be on the importance scale.  Bella Swan(Talk!) 13:04, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
So basically yes, that is all I was thinking that would be added to the template.  Bella Swan(Talk!) 13:09, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I wasn't thinking of a page so much as just getting the template done, and I don't think there's that many articles in the WP to make a whole worklist page. On the WP:WARRIORS page there's just a small section labeled 'Assesment' and I think that's all we'll need pagewise.  Bella Swan(Talk!) 18:30, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure if it's this simple, but couldn't you just find the spot in the {{NovelsWikiProject}} templete where the HTML is the part where it talks about the Assesment and just copy and paste it into the current WP:WARRIORS template? I don't know that much about it, but I just thought I'd ask. Bella Swan 02:29, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
I have made the changes I believe are necessary for the support of a few extra parameters, the two main ones are "class" for the quality assessments and "priority" for the urgency, priority or importance assessments that some projects use. I have left in code for "attention" and "auto" should you wish to use those. Hope it all works and this of use to you all. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 10:25, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
There is end to my thanking you for the AMAZING work you did with that template. I fixed a couple liks but other than that it was awesome! - Thank you so much!!!! -Bella Swan 19:41, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Stub?

Hi, and thanks for categorising the article on Anna Lombard. Although I've mentioned this to you before and no longer mind, I can assure you that it is not a very pleasant feeling that, after having exhausted nearly every possible source, you are informed that you have written a "stub", ie "at best a brief, informed dictionary definition" (criterion: "usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible") where "any editing or additional material can be helpful", something which "may be useless to a reader only passingly familiar" with—well, with what really? If Anna Lombard is a stub, what is The Story of a Modern Woman?

I can assure you that there is not a single book anywhere, let alone an encyclopaedia, where you will find more detailed information. Only if someone hosted a symposion on the New Woman novel with special emphasis on Cross's novels, invited all leading experts in this field, they actually came and everything they said were published (so that it meets our "referenced" criterion), only then could substantial additions to this article be made.

Of course I'm not just talking about articles I have written. For example, I recently came across The Marrow of Tradition, which you also classified as "Stub". Why?

I'm not asking you to change the rating to "Start" class. I'd rather you explained to me in some detail what I ought to have done to achieve at least "Start class" status: Should I have asked other contributors to join in? Should I have included a "list of characters" which on the one hand repeats information already given in the article and on the other hand, to the confusion of the reader, mentions characters who I have left out altogether in the plot summary? Should I have referred to more individual contemporary reviews? Or should I have written a longer, or even much longer, plot summary, mentioning how often Ethridge throws up in the course of one night when he has an infection (just once) or how he first learns that Anna Lombard is sleeping with her servant (he stands under her open window in the middle of the night and wants to serenade her but before he gets started he hears unambiguous noises oozing out of it)? Is longer always better?

Let's suppose—just a thought experiment—it were my ambition to turn Anna Lombard into a "Featured Article" or at least a "B-class" article ("commonly the highest article grade that is assigned outside a more formal review process"). What would I have to do? Wouldn't it be virtually impossible? (one of the few rhetorical questions I have ever asked) Does this mean that by introducing this kind of categorisation we have bitten off more than we can chew? In other words, what's the point of having all those categories if it is impossible to live up to the expectations set by them? If I can't convince Melisa Brittain to contribute referenced, NPOV material to this article, I predict that there will not be a single substantial edit until at least 2017, that all subsequent edits will be the usual—disambiguating a word, changing categories, changing categories again, adding a template here or stupid tags like "free image needed" there (who needs one?), changing to American spelling, "cleanups", etc. etc.

Hi, Kevin. I like your ad very much. Unfortunately, we cannot accept a fair use image for the ads, which I think the books are. I can make a substitute banner with free images such as Image:Books-aj.svg_aj_ashton_01.svg and Image:Nuvola_apps_bookcase.png. For now, I am removing it due to the fair use concern. Thanks for understanding. Miranda 01:09, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

I saw the image that you used, and it was free. For future use on making ads, please list all of the images you use in order to prevent confusion. Thanks. Miranda 02:42, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
In response to your communication yes if you could make a replacement we would be very grateful - thanks. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 07:51, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Wollstonecraft category

Thanks for helping to categorize the Mary Wollstonecraft pages, but I don't think that there are enough articles to justify an entire category for her books - I think that the navbox is more than adequate for that purpose. Also, she only wrote two novels - that is definitely not enough for a category. I think it would be best to delete these categories. Awadewit | talk 16:22, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

If nothing else the "Works by" category is valid. If you must, uplift to that! :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 16:31, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't see why the "Works" category is necessary. There are links to all of MW's works that one could easily write an article on in the navbox. Awadewit | talk 16:51, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
I have put the "Novels by MW" category up for deletion. Awadewit | talk 17:24, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
Why have you separated out "Books by MW" in the category "Works by MW" when there are so few works? Also, why is Original Stories from Real Life considered a "work" but not a "book"? If we must have the "works" category, might we consider listing all of MW's works in the one category, since there are so few? Awadewit | talk 17:35, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Kiki Strike

Thanks so much for your help on clean-up for my Kiki Strike article. :) I'm a new member of Wikipedia and wanted to make some contributions. If there is anything else I can do to help, or clean up my article, please let me know (I've re-updated it with character profiles, etc.).

Also, I'm trying to insert an image for the page, but not having much luck. I was hoping you might have some ideas.

Anyway, thanks again,

Books/Works

I must say I find the books by/works by categories duplicatory. I think they should be merged to more inclusive "Works by". Has this been discussed, and how do you feel about this? Johnbod 13:24, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't find the definitions especially problematic, what bothers me is we have two huge categories that are very largely the same thing, except that in practise they are unpredictably not. Take Category:Works by Paul Theroux, which contains a novels sub-cat & a Books sub-cat. So the novels apparently aren't books. Except for eg Category:Books by Thomas Mann they are. Is there any point in maintaining a separate "books by" category? It seems as if at one point this was for non-fiction/drama/poetry works, but this distinction has broken down. There is certainly no definition on the category pages to help explain any distinction. Johnbod 13:47, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Those were just examples picked at random. The problem is pervasive. Some authors only have "books", others only "works". If we are to have both categories, logically each should contain exactly the same articles in most cases, as few "non-book" works have articles (drama maybe excluded). But then what is the point of having both? Johnbod 13:58, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
'few "non-book" works have articles', essays, short stories, excluded of course. Ok I don't pretend there is an easy solution to the problem especially when it is so large. However I am trying my best. "Works by" is the catch-all and when I use "Books by" at all it is mainly to isolate clearly 'book published' non-fiction material by the author. And this I mark clearly in the category description. Categorization is never an exact science, which is one of the things I rapidly learnt at Library School (I trained as a librarian if that makes any difference at all of course). The problem often comes where people use terminology so loosely in real life and categorization is an attempt to bring tidiness to this untidy world. Ah well we try our best. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 14:16, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Isn't it simpler just to either remove the books category, by merging into works, or define it clearly as a non-fiction (+drama & poetry) category, which sits under works? Not that many essays, articles, speeches or poems or short stories have their own articles, or are ever really likely to. Johnbod 14:46, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Yes, they are, but technically "non-fiction" includes some poetry at a minimum. Maybe "non-literary" might be better? I think I'll draft a proposal in my sandbox & circulate to you and - Books Project, Literature project etc. Any other individuals you can think of? Johnbod 14:58, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

To insert another viewpoint here: I would think that a categorization scheme based around genre would make the most sense. The reason "Books" seems so odd is because it is not a genre. What about categories such as: poetry; drama; tracts; novels; short stories; screenplays; children's literature; essays; philosophical treatises; religious narratives, etc.? It would make far more sense to divide a writer's "works" into genres (which are hard enough to define) than to divide them into amorphous categories like "Books". It is hard to understand what a category called "non-literary" might mean, except perhaps for something like it has only pictures" - all prose and poetry is literary. (Also, I would dispute that not many poems or non-fiction works have their own page or are likely. The pages relating to William Blake's work are a good example and one could easily write an article on every poem in Lyrical Ballads. All of the philosophy written in the Western tradition is non-fiction and much of it also deserves its own page.) Awadewit | talk 03:04, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Those are all there. I think you are not really used to how categories work. Actually, I just discovered, almost all Shakespeare's Sonnets have their own article eg: Sonnet 88, but they manage to rather slip through the cracks, & are neither in Works by or Books by him. Look at Category:Books by author and the main books category. I was contemplating "Non-literary works by Foo", as I hope was obvious to Kevin. Legally at least all non-fiction is also literature, & if you can think of a better pithy phrase to describe works other than "imaginative literature", please let me know. Johnbod 03:13, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

I am fairly familiar with the categories at wikipedia (I usually spend a lot of time hunting through them when I make new articles). I am even more familiar with the literature categories since that is my area of expertise and I have spent time browsing through them. Unfortunately, they are very poorly arranged and not very intuitive. ("Books by author" is a good example of a poorly-conceived category - what is a book?) Awadewit | talk 04:10, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm not convinced that lumping together so many disparate genres into "non-fiction" is really useful to browsers. Beginning with "Fiction" and "Non-fiction" would create a tree effect and wikipedia categories are not supposed to be trees, apparently, although I think it is difficult to avoid this at some level. Part of the problem is, I think, that wikipedia hasn't totally decided what the function of the categories should be. Awadewit | talk 04:10, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't think Shakespeare's sonnets have really slipped through the cracks: they are in "Shakespeare's sonnets" which is in "Poetry of William Shakespeare" which is in "William Shakespeare". "Shakespeare's sonnets" are also in "William Shakespeare" (as well as several other broader categories). That seems quite logical to me. Awadewit | talk 04:10, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
All here seems reasonable although "Poetry by " should by under a "Works by " category rather than the eponymous category you mention, other than that it all seems ok. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 07:17, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Exactly, they are not in either Works by or Books by Shakespeare, supposedly the two alternative main Author categories - in fact I don't think there are such categories for WS. There should certainly be Works by. I have begun a Proposal on all this, which I am still pondering, but would welcome comments (strictly to the point Awa, and having carefully read what is being said) on at: User:Johnbod/Books v Works. Awa is right that the roles of these categories just aren't clear. Johnbod 11:19, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I have added the "Works by" for the William Shakespeare items mentioned as this seems obvious. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 11:57, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, the image is on the web - thank you. :) I would be able to get images of both the first and the second book (The Empress' Tomb), and would be able to continue the article or write a new one. Whichever you think might be more suitable (you seem a lot more experienced than me). xD

And thanks again for your extra-cleanup on the article plus the ISBN. I'm really grateful for that. :D

Category:Novels by David Brin, etc.

A couple of comments on your recent reversions of my recent edits:

1. I am not persuaded by your reason for removing Category:Works by David Brin from Category:David Brin. If you think that Category:David Brin should not exist, there are procedures for getting it deleted. As long as it continues to exist, however, Category:Works by David Brin should clearly be a part of it. --Paul A 08:12, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I could go with that for now, I don't have much an issue with this myself I was just trying to be consistent with the many removals of such eponymous categories that have come up for review recently, to my knowledge they have very nearly all been decided against. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:33, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

2. I don't understand why you say that "Novels by..." and "Short story collections by..." should not be subcategories of "Books by...". Are novels not books? Are short story collections not books? (I have noticed your attempt to redefine the "Books by..." categories as being about non-fiction books only, but this goes against what I understand the "Books by..." categories to be for. If my understanding is incorrect, can you show me where in Wikipedia it says so?) --Paul A 08:12, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

No, Novels are certainly not books they are most often delivered "in" book form. Novels can be delivered in Audio form, and in print they can be serialized in newspapers of magazine, on-line etc. Of course the normal form is by book but that doesn't by definition make them one. I understand your concerns however and I am attempting to unravel a very large tangle where numbers of literary works are called books when clearly they are not. Short stories, Essays, Letters, are some of the most obvious. Also saying a literary work is a book is almost like calling such a work writing, it says almost nothing about it beyond the obvious. So if we kept on assigning "Novels by" and Short story collections by" categories to "Books by" then we would need to be consistent, however when such items in those categories are not delivered by "book" we would then be lying. By putting such categories in "Works by" we avoid that risk without reducing the level of information to the reader. We are left with the anomaly of the "Books by" (probably used for non-fiction) category and some ideas on how to resolve this would be useful. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:33, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
Is this a widely-held consensus, or merely your own point of view? Is it, for instance, shared by the members of Wikipedia:WikiProject Books? --Paul A 08:40, 7 September 2007 (UTC)
I can't claim it is a widely held consensus. Wikipedia:WikiProject Books is itself a fairly quiet project and my activity has been extensive in this general area, mostly with the narrative prose interests of Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels. User Feydey is my most common contact with Wikipedia:WikiProject Books you might like to check with them. What I can say is that something needs to be done the current muddle is not doing wikipedia any favours and a clear logical scheme is what is needed. But it needs to account for an untidy world, a generally imprecise use of language and aim for clarity. So if we can work together to achieve consensus that would be good. You might notice a very similar debate going on above with some others. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:52, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

The Novels WikiProject Newsletter
Issue XVI - September 2007
Project news
  • During August we signed up to the WikiProject advertising facility {{wikipedia ads}} initiative.
  • Our tagged articles now number over 14,000 and more are being added every day. In reality the article count for our project scope is likely to be much higher so the more who can get involved and assist the process of improving the quality of the articles the better.
Member news
  • The project has currently 261 members, 7 joined & 0 leavers since the last newsletter at the start of August 2007.
  • A number of editors have signed up to our "task forces" without signing to the main project so the figure could be slightly higher.
Other news
  • Although many editors are doing sterling work actually working on writing and maintaining articles we could always do with more volunteers to assist with the project wide tasks.
  • Our Collaboration of the Month is in need of more suggested articles for our attention and more votes for those already proposed.
Novel related news
Current debates

Image:AndThenThereWereNoneBookCover.jpg

You wrote on my talk page recently reverted an edit I did to the article AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. You substituted the current matching bookcover with the first edition cover of a book with a completly different title.

It is true that FIRST EDITION covers are preferred, but in rare exceptions, that is not always desirable. The title of this work underwent a number of changes (along with rewrites to the text) during the history of its publication. The original title in today's culture is 100% politically incorrect; as is the subsequent retitled TEN LITTLE INDIANS. The article is not listed under the original title, but rather the more neutral AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. The title on the first edition does not agree with the article, which may on first glance both confuse AND anger some readers -- the N word in the original title is ranked among the top 10 most offensive words in the english language. Some people might even mistake the image for vandalism. That book, like the recent flak about TIN TIN IN AFRICA, was the result of a blatantly and more openly racist society. In this day in age, such things should be noted further on and not placed right up front (ala TIN TIN).


You said yourself, the first edition cover is the laterary significant one. History is the record. The first edition cover image belongs in the history section. -- Jason Palpatine 06:25, 12 September 2007 (UTC) Confused-tpvgames.gif This User fails to understand Wikipedia's Systematized Logistical Projection of its Balanced Policy Contingency. (speak your mind | contributions)


I disagree with this "This User fails to understand Wikipedia's Systematized Logistical Projection of its Balanced Policy Contingency." statement you made when arguing this cover. Exactly how is seeking factual accuracy of the situation falling foul of this. I can't stand the opinions of the dictator's of the mid 20thC however that can't mean we never include them to illustrate the nature of the problem they brought to the world. I can say quite categorically I am not pushing a particular word. All I am seeking to do is accurately record history. "political correctness" in my view appears to be a euphemism for historical revisionism. What happened happened! Any encyclopaedia should be a record of it. If we "must" have another edition then the first US edition would be the next most preferable. Particularly in that it illustrates the dispute at the time. Also I would agree with Accounting4Taste the students of the controversy should at least have access to the visual information to see what the problem was. So again as a secondary solution the appearance of the cover (which is clearly borderline in content) later in the article would be helpful. Otherwise we get close to suppression of the truth rather than education, information and debate on the facts. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 07:34, 12 September 2007

Laura (novel)

I noticed that you gave Vera Caspary's novel "Bedelia" a mid-importance rating and gave "Laura" a low-importance rating. As "Laura" is by far Caspary's best-known work (mostly, but not entirely, due to the movie of the same name) and has been translated worldwide and reissued many times over the last 60-odd years, I found this curious. The article is still in a rudimentary stage although I hope to peruse/incorporate some serious scholarship soon. Thanks. Jgreenbook 03:54, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

I was already very disappointed by Grönholm's retirement, leaving WRC as LRC (Loeb Rally Championship), and then one day later came even worse news about McRae. Prolog 22:44, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

PKD

Do you consider yourself knowledgeable about PKD? I am dealing with a slight problem introduced into the VALIS trilogy-related articles by User:Emvan and User:DT29, and considering they are no longer active, I could use some help. The problem concerns these two separate edits: [1][2]. As far as I can make out, these editors propagated edits to the rest of the trilogy articles, but they seem to contradict statements by PKD himself, are not supported by the accompanying citations, and contradict these two links: [3][4]. In the former, "Tessa Dick" states that The Owl in Daylight was intended to be the third novel in the trilogy, whereas in the latter, PKD himself states, "Timothy Archer is essentially the third novel in a trilogy of which Valis is the first and The Divine Invasion is the second; which is sort of interesting because each book is unique." Which is true? —Viriditas | Talk 10:14, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I'll sleep on it. —Viriditas | Talk 10:39, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Biographies

Just to point out that Category:Biographies is a redirect, not a real category. The category for books of a biographical nature is Category:Biographies (books). (I gather that this was considered necessary because categorization newbies use Category:Biographies both for articles about biographies and for articles that are biographies - that is, articles that belong in Category:People.) --Paul A 07:13, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Alan Bennett's The Uncommon Reader

Hi again. As far as I know, Bennett has not written any novels. In his Wikipedia biography, he has been categorized as one of the 1934 births | English radio actors | English radio personalities | English actors | English dramatists and playwrights | English satirists | English screenwriters | English television writers | English stage actors | Gay actors from the United Kingdom | Audio book narrators | English diarists | British Book Awards | Alumni of Exeter College, Oxford | LGBT people from England | Gay writers | Living people | People from Leeds | LGBT screenwriters, but not as a British (or English) novelist.

What's the point, then, of creating a new category Novels by Alan Bennett and of classifying The Uncommon Reader as a 2007 novel as well?

Best wishes, and keep up the good work, <KF> 18:11, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Do you not agree that the work is a novella as the article description has it? In such cases it is normal to include novellas as novels (until, if such time as there are appropriate category structures for them that is).Also in such an established scheme '"work type" by' the count of applicable entries is not such a concern.
Thanks for the appreciation. Although we contribute in completely different ways and from different perspectives, that is one of the great strengths of wikipedia. I eagerly read what you write and find much that is informative and new to me so keep on, keeping on. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 07:54, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BernardMalamud_TheNatural.jpg

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:BernardMalamud_TheNatural.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

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 'image' 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 "Image" 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. Videmus Omnia Talk 02:22, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Hello

Thank you for welcoming me into the Fantasy Task Force. I'll help any way I can. If you would like to know more about me, just leave me a message! I am a high school senior in Texas, and I'm best at analyzing literary style, that is to say, that is my specialty... Anyway, Thanks again! Humbly, Masterfeatherpen 15:47, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Star over Bethlehem

Kevin,

Please could you advise me why you have changed the table I created last night for the Christie page Star Over Bethlehem and other stories. I'll phrase the question another way - could you point me to a standards page which state exactly how the info on the table should be structured?

Thank you--Jtomlin1uk 08:24, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok, based on what you had put I can see that the main response would be that the focus of the infobox (not "table" that's a general term) is the first editiont. So it is irrelevant to include multiple peices of information. the only exception is the media-type which records the "various" ways the novel etc has been released. This may not be as clearly spelt out as it could be but the various pages to look at are Template:Infobox Book where some documentation on usage appears. Also have a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/ArticleTemplate & Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Style guidelines#Infobox. I know these are lacking but it is only as we try to use them that holes in the descriptions are found and plugged. So if anything is unclear please ask or even augment the pages. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:33, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

I see what you mean. Perhaps I could explain where I'm coming from with my use of flags in the table (which was an idea I picked up from another page - non-crime - which I've forgotten now). There are some twenty Christie books whose true first edition was published in the United States (e.g. The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Death Comes as The End) If one followed the rule that you only concentrate on the first edition in the country of the author's nationality, then you immediately start to break that rule when it comes to Styles where almost all reference works (and current paperback printings) quote a first publication date of 1920, which is true of the US but for the UK it is 1921. I've put on virtually every Christie page both the UK and US publication dates and this means that on occasion (and Star over Bethlehem is one of them) the dates match and I would rather be consistent in the page formats than create confusion by having different formats. The dates I've put in for the UK printings are pretty exact (in most cases for the 1950's and early 60's, exact to the point of the day of publication) and I'm currently investigating similar info for the US. When it comes to page counts of first editions, I've found a source for virtually all of the US editions (I already had the UK info) and was going to update each page with this soon. The removal of the US info on Star, if replicated on the other Christie pages, takes away that option. I'd like to reverse the infobox on Star to the way I created it last night (I have no issue with the changes you made to the categories)

Best Regards--Jtomlin1uk 09:08, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

The best way to handle this would be for the "true" first editions to be used throughout - i.e. regardless of origine of author. So edition information is the first one.
The infobox information should be fairly terse (i.e. minimal). Have a look at the "Publication details" or "Publication history" section for where to record information about the various issues of the title. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 09:16, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Right, I'll go back and delete all of that info then. To comply with such standards and to be consistent, I'll also delete all of the images of the UK first editions when the US first was the true first.

Many thanks--Jtomlin1uk 09:21, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

I'm not saying all the info needs deleting just arguing for a change of placing. Some of the focus of the data might mean some elements might go, but generally the 1st edition in another country is of some note so should appear, but later in the article. All the best and thanks for your editing work. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 09:24, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Soory - didn't mean delete! Bad choice of words on my part!--Jtomlin1uk 09:26, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Novel

Hi Kevin, I constantly see you working on the novel related pages I have on my watchlist. Could you help me as a native speaker and read the new intro I wrote for that article (I know, the stuff following after 1750 is terrible - promise to complete that work later this year) - I just feel worried that I brought some German structures into the new intro... --Olaf Simons 18:22, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

I have made a few minor copyedit changes in response to this request. However the unfamiliarity with the scholarly material prevents me from intelligently going too far. However I believe I understand enough to have made the changes I have. One other thing, the phrase "it does with that restriction not solve the problem of a viable definition:" is a bit beyond me - the English is so obscure that I am struggling to grasp the intended meaning. Perhaps you could rephrase yourself and let me have another look or try to describe it's meaning here and I will again look at it. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 08:20, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Hm... some plots are per se plots of the extended, epic genre. Snoopy wrote (in the example) a novel: a grand piece of epic, romantic fictionality - no matter how short and stupid it was. Problem is, however, that novels do not regularly offer these old and trivial, romantic plots. That's why we cannot give a definition of the subject matter... I see, I was a bit short here and thought the example would make it clear... I'll think about it immediately (and thanks for looking through my lines. I wish I had a native speakers feeling for what is right and wrong...) --Olaf Simons 10:00, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
I feel compelled to say that for a non native speaker of English you achieve very nearly the same results. If I could grasp another tongue to the same extent, I would be very satisfied. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 10:03, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Gaia (Foundation universe)

Hey, I know this question is a bit late, but the comment you placed when you rated this article as a B class, it said it was in need of "third part references". What exactly are third part references? (I know, this must seem like a really dumb question but the truth is I just don't know). And any suggestions as to how I can get some information from outside of the Foundation Universe? I really can't think of anything. A review would apply for a book, but this is a planet in a book so I'm really stumped. And thanks for assessing it two times, BTW. --Slartibartfast (1992) 22:53, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Interesting point. However wikipedia says that everything must be verifiable and not original research, so! All I can suggest is are there reviews, criticism, comment or books about the series that might include some mention of the various elements of the "universe" such as this one. I understand your problem, however this is basic to wikipedia. Otherwise it becomes fan cruft and don't think that is what you would want to be accused of for this type of article. All the best with your search. :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 07:45, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Well it wouldn't exactly be original research since I put in the two books where Gaia appears as references, but I do see your point in it being too centralized on the fiction of it. Maybe I can search for any works inspired on it, or something that has to do with this particular planet that's not so in-universe. Thanks for your time and thanks for the luck on my search-I'm going to need it. --Slartibartfast (1992) 21:45, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
