List of locomotives in China[edit]

Can you please replace my references to pictures on "list of chinese locomotives" by "stamps-picture" on the page.

I have not found how to do by myself.

Kind regards.

  • Hi Rail1435 I'd be happy to try to help but I'm at work at the moment I'll try to look later, but I may not get time until the weekend. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 12:37, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Rail1435, I fixed the images for the HXD2.1 and HXD2C on List of locomotives in China however the other images can not be shown as images, as they are not hosted on English Wikipedia, or on Wikimedia Commons. Images on other sites, even other Wikipedia languages, can not be used as this is hot-linking and not allowed. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:08, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi KylieTastic: Thank you very much for your help. So, the other pictures can be let as "references".

  • Hi Rail1435, happy to help. Although finding images that are copyright free and can be uploaded to commons is the best thing, having the links external images for people to see is a good alternative. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:50, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for reverting K-27 and messing up 2 hours worth of code I was writing while you reverted it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by GTSinc (talkcontribs) 13:01, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi GTSinc I'm confused by your statement, not sure how a wiki edit could possibly cause code to be messed up? I see you've fixed it now so all good. Oh, and just been looking at your images on commons - good work! Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:17, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
    • Yes, I was frustrated, as it was the first time a page had been changed while I was editing it, it looked like my edit was gone, but found it at the bottom of the "edit error" page. Anyway, the issue is cleared up. Sorry for getting up in arms, haha. GTSinc (talk) 13:31, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi GTSinc no worries - I understand, the edit conflict error - they are horrid. The first time I got one after writing an update for half an hour I thought I 'd lost it all as well, very frustrating! Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:41, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Programming :([edit]

On my userpage, 8 categories of userbox are placed with collapsible attribute. But by clicking show, they mess up the page. Can you create a scroll bar for it?
Thanks!

  • Hi Acagastya Sorry it not obvious, you've built it up with multiple pages and I don't have the time at the moment to work through it. Sorry. KylieTastic (talk) 20:42, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Okay. no problem. Thank you to let me know. Currently i am also so busy that i can't do much editing: just some minors. Anyways thanks Face-smile.svg

Reverted your unnecessary work[edit]

I created a new article that included an infobox image, while preparing the upload of the image in another browser window. I ensured the name of the image in the infobox was the same as the image I was simultaneously preparing for upload. By the time I completed the file upload and returned to the article, you had already deleted the file name from the infobox. Only a few minutes had passed; the red link literally existed for only a few minutes. I reverted your unnecessary work. Please do not work on articles that are only a few minutes old to prevent this from occurring in the future; I suggest ensuring the red link has been there for at least 24 hours. Thanks. Prhartcom (talk) 20:28, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Prhartcom I work on checking problems flagged in Category:Articles with missing files and after sorting 20,000 - 30,000 of them I know that in general their are very very few images added to articles that if not already existing are not uploaded in a couple of minutes. In this case I didn't actually note the time past as I was catching up after a few days so sorry I was a bit quicker than I normally would be! However it had been 8 minutes, and you didn't actually get around to uploading till 31 minutes later. One reason I still revert/remove even if its relatively new is even seasoned editors either forget to upload or make a typo, so getting a notification often helps fix the problem. An example in the same editing session is this where I actually noticed the editor had uploaded but it was a typo so fixed, however if I had reverted I guess they would have fixed themselves. So sorry again for the minor inconvenience but for every case like this there are literally thousands of random additions, erroneous corrections, and plain old vandalism I have fixed. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 20:55, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
That's OK, thanks for the apology; this is actually the third time this has happened; sometimes the other way around (I upload the file first, then the article, then return to the file and someone has eagerly flagged it for deletion). It's just going to keep happening, so I will just try to do both nearly simultaneous from now on. Thanks for your helpful housekeeping. Prhartcom (talk) 23:16, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank-you COI resolved[edit]

Just saying thank-you for the link it clarified things beautifully. I missed it many times and couldn't find the page. I greatly appreciate it.

Oh no, just found more, a fan of the man defending him righteously. Just want it neutral. I'll do my best, thanks again! — Preceding unsigned comment added by CheckersBoard (talkcontribs) 21:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your assistance with the USA California Northern map module. :) Banaticus (talk) 17:30, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Banaticus, it took a while to track down the problem once I noticed the image not showing on the article, but its good to delve into new areas :) Happy to help KylieTastic (talk) 18:03, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

RE:February 2015[edit]

"Information icon Hello, I'm KylieTastic.

Wrong reversion.[edit]

I wonder why a spelling error ( communale ) which was corrected into the proper Italian adjective ' comunale ' with only one 'm', was reverted into the original spelling error, when all one needs to do is consulting any ordinary Italian dictionary, to confirm the first correction CarloMartinelli (talk) 23:02, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Overeager reformists...[edit]

Dear KylieTastic, I respectfully suggest that you take advantage of the several excellent free Italian dictionaries available on the web, should you still have doubts on the correction of my edit. Cheers CarloMartinelli (talk) 23:12, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

  • File has been requested to be renamed so above invalid file will become valid.

Thanks[edit]

Dear KylieTastic, I am obliged for your kind reply; please allow me to add that ( almost like you ) I have become fiercely protective of this priceless resource that 'our' Wikipedia has become and I try to contribute as much as my meager knowledge allows. All the bestCarloMartinelli (talk) 23:45, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi again CarloMartinelli, I check the spelling in the website listed on Poschiavo and found evidence [1] that you are correct. So I have requested the file is renamed here on commons. It should be renamed correctly at some point in the next few hours. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 00:05, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Civility Barnstar Hires.png The Civility Barnstar
Thank you for addressing my concerns and being civil despite my frustrated tone. I can see why they put you in charge. Xyzerb (talk) 18:02, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Xyzerb Thank you, always happy to help. However at Wikipedia no one is on charge, a very odd idea but one that appears to work overall. I started just like you a couple of years ago and I know when your new all the policies and things are overwhelming. Administrators are not really people with more say on what goes on that every other user, they just have more tools and responsibly. They are voted in and can be voted out, and can be challenged on any edit. If any thing is "in charge" it is the policies, and they are like the rest of the articles written by consensus not set down by any higher powers. One key policy I didn't get at first was Assume good faith - but you soon realise that most people are trying to the right thing, and often its just misunderstandings and frustration. All the best, and watch out being a wikipedian can be addictive (I only popped on to edit a single article....) KylieTastic (talk) 19:03, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I like seeing that "assume good faith" is listed as a fundamental principle. As a new user, I had no idea how to contribute, so I searched for my hometown, found the list of companies and thought I'd found the perfect place for my first few articles. My first error was not thinking twice about the section: everything else is so well-documented--why is this area so sparse? Then, after some frustration with formatting, not understanding the draft process, and a couple of unceremonious deletions, I went into full-defensive mode. I still have a lot to learn here.
I still think moving rejected articles to user's page rather than just deleting them would preferable to the current "doesn't meet the standards, press the smite key" process (as illustrated here by Strong Bad).
Thanks again for all your help.--Xyzerb (talk) 19:44, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Image names[edit]

Oops - that was a ".jpg" vs ".jpg.JPG" issue. My fault. I've fixed it. DS (talk) 23:20, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

not going to bother re-uploading image or any more images or edits for that sake.[edit]

image was there for years, not a single issue or complaint. there wouldnt be, it's mine, i own it, uploaded it, and that's the end of it.

Some moron comes to the page, deletes the files, and now I have to go through hoops to restore/reupload? No thanks. Not my job.

Please tell me the point of contributing to Wiki as the rights holder if some careless twit is just going to remove the contribution years later and then leave the rights holder to clean up the mess?

There is no answer, and people wonder why Wiki is laughed at as a valid source for information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:E000:2203:1E00:387F:EBBC:3C65:575A (talk) 01:33, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi 2605:E000:2203:1E00:387F:EBBC:3C65:575A, I understand your frustration, I've shouted at my computer a couple of times at the actions of those over on commons. Why this image was not picked up for a year I don't know (Image was uploaded 14 March 2013 from file page still on Google cache). The annoying thing is warning messages are only posted to commons, in this case on commons:User_talk:Knacrob so unless you go there regularly or have changed the default email notification you don't know there is a problem till the image has gone. Without a copy of images or other details its difficult to comment further, only those over on commons could say more. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:06, 26 March 2015 (UTC)


Orchidarium ‎[edit]

Hello I am a first time contributor to Wikipedia. can you please help me understand why my recent edit was removed and how to revise or change the content of the edit to clearly explain the functionality and use of an orchidarium

I have created a talk page for orchidarium. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Orchidariumguru (talkcontribs) 16:06, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Orchidariumguru, welcome to Wikipedia. The reason why your edit was reverted was because you added content to Orchidarium which is a disambiguation page. What this means is it's a page that just redirect the reader to several options to do with the title. In this case it only has two sub articles, but some a lot such as Cab. If you want to add your information about Orchidarium, you would normally add it to the relevant sub article. In this case, neither of the sub articles are really specific so I think maybe this could be a case to change the page from a disambiguation page to a normal one. I'm at work at the moment and wanted to just give a quick reply, I'll have another look later. The other big issue was the content was not referenced - and all content on Wikipedia should have valid reliable sources. The images were not valid either. I've added a welcome messaeg to your talk page to give you some useful starting links. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:00, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi again Orchidariumguru, I've reverted back to your work and done the basic tidy up. However without adding references soon it may be challenged or reverted by another editor. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:07, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Kiev[edit]

Sorry, I only meant to change actual uses of the name. I thought I had skipped over all filenames, combined names that commonly use "Kyiv" in English (such as Kyiv Post), quotations and other such legitimate instances of Kyiv. --Khajidha (talk) 17:03, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Szczecin‎ image[edit]

Hello, Do you know how to move this image to Commons? Thanks. -- M2545 (talk) 23:15, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi M2545, although I do know how to move images to commons I'm not sure this is OK to move as per the notice added to it. I wouldn't want to move it then it be deleted from commons and lost from the German article as well. I would advice either just uploading a local copy to English Wikipedia, or asking for copyright advice from someone more qualified. You could try either over at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or locally at Wikipedia:Teahouse/Questions - Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 09:16, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
thanks -- M2545 (talk) 09:26, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

Henry Edward Colville[edit]

Hi,

I was looking at this page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Edward_Colville) and noticed that someone had corrected his name to 'Colvile' (though not in the article title) and you'd reverted on Feb 11. As one of his (distant) relatives, I can confirm that it's the correct spelling of our particular branch of the family - see this Spectator piece (http://archive.spectator.co.uk/article/29th-december-1900/3/it-was-announced-on-friday-that-sir-evelyn-wood-ac) or the title page of his book (https://archive.org/details/landnilesprings00colvgoog). Would you be able to cancel the changes? I'd have gone in and changed it myself but I didn't want to be rude...

Robert

  • Hi Robert thanks for getting in touch. At first I was confused as there are very reliable sources for 'Colville', such as the The Library of Congress. We often get these issues when both spellings were actually used, but for an Englishman of this period that is very unlikely. However I have done some preliminary research and found we have two people Colvile, H. E. (Henry Edward), Sir, 1852-1907 and Colville, H. E. (Henry Edward) are actually both listed at The Library of Congress. So it will need some checking to make sure all information pertains to the correct person and to work out if we need two articles. I'm happy to sort it out but it's late and I'm doing 11 hour days, and 7 days a week, at the moment, but I'll get around to it and sort it out for you. Just not tonight. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 22:37, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Actually they may be the same person after all, I'm too tired now - I'll look into later. KylieTastic (talk) 22:40, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Robert all done - All the best KylieTastic (talk) 20:54, 14 April 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks! Very kind. It's a rare spelling and always getting misused... Robert
  • Hi Robert, I also got an email back from The National Portrait Gallery today - they agreed they had also got the spelling wrong so have updated their info as well. this has also been corrected. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:27, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Keeping Wikipedia Expanding Not Shrinking[edit]

Hello User:KylieTastic sorry for disturbing you. The reason I am writing you is we all love Wikipedia and we want it expanding. However there is a discussion going on to delete a notable game article because of biased opinions. I saw that you edited this article: Yu-Gi-Oh!_Power_Of_Chaos and let it stay for further expansion, update and keep growing Wikipedia even though it has no references. But I am also totally agree with you to let articles stay for improvements and expand Wikipedia. So I believe you are a neutral, professional, objective and who believes in expanding Wikipedia not shrinking it type of person. So I would like you to check out this discussion Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/MonsterMMORPG_(2nd_nomination) and make your comment based on references it has. References are here Talk:MonsterMMORPG. Please feel free to delete my message to you after you read it. Thank you very much have a nice day.176.233.41.152 (talk) 14:06, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Bellarmine Emergency Response Team[edit]

Please explain your deletion of the Bellarmine Emergency Response Team addition to the Bellarmine University page. I saw that you noted a conflict of interest, however, while I am the VP of B.E.R.T., none of the information provided was false, inaccurate, misleading, destructive, berating or wrong. It was unimpassioned and purely a description of the team.

If there is something I can do to make this post more legitimate for you, please let me know. — Preceding unsigned comment added by B.E.R.T.Car2 (talkcontribs) 03:01, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
