Question[edit]

Hi KylieTastic, I noticed that you often revert vandalism. Would rollback rights and reviewer rights be of use to you? If so, I'd be happy to grant them to you. Please let me know what you think. Best. Acalamari 09:31, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Acalamari, thanks for noticing :) I don't really know much about the permissions, but the rollback would be useful so I could use some of the other anti-vandalism tools, and the reviewer would have been useful a few times in the past. So yes thank you, I think it would be helpful to have them. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:15, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Done! Thanks for your reply. Good luck! :) Acalamari 14:59, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

My removal of fake material[edit]

Hello, regarding your message please, I hadnt time to add a note before you sent me a message. im not a vandal. Someone added fake information to the Abbasi page, which had already been deleted/removed in the Dhund Abbasi page previously. The Dhund Abbasi are a local/indigenous tribe of this area of North Pakistan, although a major dispute developed here on Wikipedia when they claimed Arabic 'Abbasi' (Abbasid) origins. Im going to remove this again, as it this page has nothing to do with Pakistan or the Dhund Abbasis, who are non Arabic converts to Islam from Hinduism. Thanks. 39.54.47.194 (talk) 16:36, 13 July 2014 (UTC) Col (retd) Mumtaz, Pakistan

Loss of images from rewritten article[edit]

Not being a "wiki-guru", I do not write items and items for Wikipedia per se. Instead, I write about the few things I am informed about and find to be missing from Wikipedia or to be presented erroneously in existing articles there. So I am not familiar with most of the uniquely wiki commands that make things happen. I try to accomplish those things by mimicking the forms I find in other edited articles. It doesn't always work. In my recent re-do of the article entitled "QUILL (satellite)", I tried to include three images that I had previously (after another long struggle with wiki notation) put into Wikimedia Commons. In spite of my mimickings in this case, the only thing that appeared in each thumbnail box was the file name. Hoping that someone like you would catch and fix it, I let it go that way. But, instead of a fix, those items suffered a deletion. Where did I go wrong in my mimicking? Can you and will you fix it? The images can be found in Wikimedia commons under the category (someone other than me put them there) "National Reconnasissance Office".Oldteched (talk) 04:11, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Oldteched, thanks for the message - I'd always rather fix images than remove them. I have found them and added them back in with the required changes. I'm at work so just did it quickly, the article including the pictures probably needs some more formatting, so I'll have another look over the weekend if no one else has. There were two issues with the pictures, both in the category of things computers care about but humans don't (so don't notice them) :
  • Wrong (angled) double quotes - i.e. “Quill” instead of "Quill"
  • Character case issues - case counts even for the file name extension so .JPG not .jpg
The easiest way is to find the image on commons or wikipedia and cut and paste the name even if they look the same (some characters like different version of a hyphen look the same)
Hope that helps - any others questions or problems just ask and I'll try to help. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 08:46, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
That was quick! Heaps thanks.Oldteched (talk) 17:59, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Better and better -- the larger thumbnails are as good as needed. Nice to have someone who knows his way around in wiki-ese. I suppose that the "enlarged" size of the third one is restrained by my having made it too tall (?), but the thumbnail version is fine now.Oldteched (talk) 01:44, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Oldteched, the new way they show "enlarged" images isn't great for more vertical images. However people can still get to the original to view better if they want, by either of the option in the lower right "view original file", or "more details... on commons".

My named photo correction was reverted & replaced with incorrect information[edit]

The Bay City Rollers article includes two photo's claiming ( by way of the text below them) to be The Bay City Rollers in 2014. This is incorrect as these photo's are of a different band consisting only of ONE Bay City Roller member ( Les McKeown)and other previously unknown musicians currently performing as 'Les's Legendary Bay City Rollers'. 'The Bay City Rollers' achieved global success at the height of their career in the mid 70s and became effectionately known as the Classic 5 line up - Eric Faulkner, Alan Longmuir, Derek Longmuir, Stuart John Wood ( who's article Wiki has recently deleted .. ? ) and Les Mckeown. Each band member has a loyal fan base who continue to actively celebrate The Bay City Rollers ( classic 5 ) to this very day. As only Les Mckeown is shown in the article photo's with his new current band and NOT The Bay City Rollers, the photo's are named incorrectly and become misleading. Is it possible to please label the photo's correctly or remove them? Thankyou 2Infome2 (talk) 10:01, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 2Infome2, I only reverted the edits as the picture you added File:cmglee_Cambridge_Legendary_Bay_City_Rollers_curtain_call.jpg does not exist, and I assumed the new picture and caption went together. I didn't realise it was just a case of 'correcting' the file name, as well as the caption. Please feel free to correct any incorrect information on the article, including the image caption if wrong (It's not a subject I know about). Just note the image file name cannot be renamed unless you put in a request over on wikimedia commons. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for working on improving the articles correctness. Cheer KylieTastic (talk) 10:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi 2Infome2, It's not an topic I know, but as a general principle if your information is correct (and I think it is) then I would think the picture is misleading and would be better removed completely. If you do remove, just make sure the edit summary is clear, and maybe add a note on the talk page. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:25, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: Accusations of vandalism[edit]

Hi KylieTastic, The removal of your edit was inadvertent, as you can see almost 50,000 bytes of vandalism was deleted across two reverts and an edit. This is a persistent problem and something like ten times the amount has been removed from the other article changed by the same editor, The Shapies. While I apologise, I ask that you help remove any further hoax or vandalism. MartinSFSA (talk) 12:12, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

A86 autoroute[edit]

How did you spot this? And thanks for doing so! Rcsprinter123 (chat) @ 19:41, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rcsprinter123 I spotted it as I keep an eye on Articles with missing files (trying to clear again after a few months off) - it's a good place to spot mistakes, and unfortunately lots of vandalism that get missed. At first I thought vandal/edit test then looked at your edits and realised just a mistake/typo, I was going to send a message but you fixed before I could :) - Happy to help, Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 19:48, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Thomas F. Farrell Jr.[edit]

Thanks for the file rename request. It was my mistake on uploading, though I think the one "l" on the ship name goes back to the origin of the Wiki page. It is certainly "Farrell" in all references I added back some time ago and I've just checked. I'll see if I can easily find if the Thomas F. Farrell Jr. is the son of the general. Not a priority, but interesting. Do see more information on Thomas F. Farrell Jr. and his inclusion on the West Point Class of 1942 World War II Deaths marker. Palmeira (talk) 15:13, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Confirmation is actually in the general's page here, though the reference is a 404 now. Palmeira (talk) 15:35, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Palmeira - I found a link that mostly validates [1] - looks like a reasonable source.
"Tommy was the namesake of his father, an Army major general who, after a distinguished career spanning both world wars..."
Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:56, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Side note: he also had a street in Richland WA named after him [2] KylieTastic (talk) 16:01, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Good. Just added a bit to the page with a note linking to the general's page where mention is made. Adding your find to the external links seems reasonable. Palmeira (talk) 16:10, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi. Francvs Thomas Francis Farrell, II is the son of Peter Farrell, a son of the general who is mentioned in the article on the general; he is thus the nephew of Thomas Francis Farrell, Jr., for whom the ship is named. He is also the father of Peter Farrell (politician), who is thus a grandson of the Peter Farrell already mentioned, and a grandnephew of Thomas Francis Farrell, Jr.
  • Hi Francvs, thanks. A lot of people of note in that family! Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:45, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Cool it, man[edit]

Most people can see when what they have done is not what they intended. So, relax and allow a few minutes for people to fix their own mistakes and mishaps and you will spare yourself a lot of work. Just stand back and watch how it all works itslef out. A beer for you. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 16:39, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rui Gabriel Correia, sorry I was just working through Articles with missing files and didn't notice the edit was just a couple of minutes old, I generally try to leave a bit longer to see it its self fixed. However often after a few minutes the editor has moved on and not noticed, and sometimes doing a revert gets there attention to fix it before someone deletes it because it's now invalid. Plus unfortunately we have a lot of non-constructive editors who make such edits for whatever reason these people do what they do :/
All the best and happy editing KylieTastic (talk) 17:00, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
P.S. Thanks for the beer I think I'll have it now as its rather hot here ;)
All well. Actually I did not take into account that it might not be immediately obvious on your side how recent the edit was. And I take your point about editors editing and moving on and about the vandals. But thanks for your note. Appreciated. Enjoy your beer, I wish I had one now - but did not buy as we are in the middle of winter (South Africa). Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 17:09, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Unnecessary change to Atlantic High School (Port Orange, FL)[edit]

I am a student at this school and our Baseball team is known as the "Flaccid Boiz" and we always say "Home of the Flaccid Boiz" at our games — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.239.210.195 (talk) 19:28, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi User:72.239.210.195, Wikipedia works on being sourced - so if you have a source for that please link. Also on its own "Home of the Flaccid Boiz" means nothing to those not at the school. So a sentence to explain would be more appropriate. However "Flaccid Boiz" would be a very odd name for a team, sounds more like a put down - so without a source/reference/link I doubt it would be believed. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 19:36, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Please help delete two pages[edit]

Hi Kylie- I created a page titled 'Suzanne Marie Olsson' that you helped with (made some minor edits). Once the editing started, the deteriorating of the page began. This happened at Wiki before about the same person. There is another page marked for deletion for her- but that hasn't been deleted yet either, and should be.

www.wikifolks.org/wiki/index.php/Suzanne_M._Olsson

Olsson already explained in her book that situations mentioned in the India news article were "planted" by fundamentalists at the tomb,inaccurate and done with an agenda. To publish them is just to empower the fundamentalists who want to destroy the tomb. Editors are adding these same errors to my biography page about the same person. I want avoid conflicts and controversy. I 'blanked' the page and would like someone with the ability to delete it entirely. This is best. I'll start another page about something else. Can you delete these pages for me? I am not sure if you are an administrator or not...If not, perhaps you can find someone else to do it for us. Many thanks for your help Granada2000 (talk) 04:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)Granada2000Granada2000 (talk) 04:38, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

See note at User talk:Drmies#Drmies admin help line Bgwhite (talk) 06:17, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Granada2000, firstly no I'm not an administrator, but Bgwhite is. Not that it matters as much as you may think as most things on Wikipedia are done via collaboration and consensus, backed up by the administrators taking action.
  • If you now want the article to be removed the best thing is to say so on the Articles for_deletion:Suzanne Marie Olsson page, as at the moment your opinion as stated on that page is to give the article more time to develop. As you asked for my help I have already added to that discussion that it should be deleted.
  • As for the page on wikifolks.org - that is not related to Wikipedia other than using the same Wikimedia software. I would suggest creating an account but with a different user name and password on that site and discussing it with them.

links not relevant in the wikipedia notice on Louis Zukofsky[edit]

Dear Kylie,

I am the translator of "A", a book of Louis Zukofsky. In the wikipedia notice on Zukofsky, the link on "François DOMINIQUE" is false: The only author who has to be mentioned is the french writer and translator François DOMINIQUE and the link on this name on wikipedia. Thank you, if you can agree this correction. Yours,

François DOMINIQUE. aseroe@wanadoo.fr — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.196.246.2 (talk) 12:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 83.196.246.2, I have updated Louis Zukofsky so that if does not link to a page without the actual person. If this author is of note you would need to create a new article for them. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 12:59, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Portal:Current events/Sports/Sidebar[edit]

Please accept my humble apologies about that – I was preparing to delete the revision when my mouse jerked and I ended up accidentally clicking the Rollback option. You beat me to reverting the mistake. SuperMarioMan ( talk ) 14:57, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

  • No worries SuperMarioMan, done of couple of them clicks myself and had the panic of could I fix/explain before I got caught :) Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:00, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Thank you very much for your reply on my sandbox. I never thought anyone going to respond to that. Thank you very much. I'm happy that you, atleast you have understand that sometimes Wikipedia is frustrating. Actually it was not my comment. It was one of my wikifriend's comment, known by the name TheGeneralUser. He was a very good guy, and a extraordinary editor. He ran for Rfa, and was very critised by some people. Which personally hurted him. See his RfA. He didn't failed his Rfa. He was hurt by how community attacked him. He was really hurt. He requested deletion for his userpage and blanked his talk page. Before he blanked he actually posted that message, but seeing no one's response, he blanked. This happened when I was away (Wikibreak), when returned, I was shocked. It is very clear to me that he left Wikipedia. In his memory (Although I know WP:NOTMEMORIAL) I just copied that message and pasted on my sandbox and after a minute, saw your comment. Many thanks for your comment, I'm not going to delete it. Thanks again & have a good day. Face-smile.svg Jim Carter (from public cyber) 19:44, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Please help revert[edit]

Hi. I recall you saying you deal with recent changes. An IP copy-pasted a whole bunch of stuff here and [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Genetic_history_of_the_Iberian_Peninsula&diff=next&oldid=619548799 here, which I cannot undo, as a new edit has since been done by a bot. I don't know what kind of rollback tools you have, but it would be great if while you are at it, if you could roll it back to restore the templates removed here. Thanks and regards, Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 16:21, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Rui Gabriel Correia, I've reverted the IP copy-pasted copyright violation and added a note to their talk page. As for the templates that would be a value call on if this edit was correct in removing them with "No real issue with this article". Sorry I don't have time to read at the moment and judge, and as they added that clear comment of intent, rather than just removal, I feel I would need to read first before deciding if they were valid. Plus its not really my area of knowledge. I'm assuming your probably right considering your experience vs. their few edits, however I'll leave it up to you to add if you feel appropriate. Cheers, happy to help KylieTastic (talk) 16:42, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Alien[edit]

You have deleted something I wrote. Yes, I am new at this and don't know what people want to read. I don't think this is where I'm supposed to be writing this but I am unable to read my screen very well. I want to tell you that you HAVE made a mistake deleting my small paragraph about aliens. When I searched aliens I was hoping to find many things about aliens (sci-fi aliens) but found almost nothing. I decided to write more about them (them being aliens). If I hadn't known what aliens where I would have been completely lost. - Augustuswatersismylove

  • Hi Augustuswatersismylove, Your edit was not only in the wrong place (on a disambiguation page), but is was also not information, just more of an open question. Your edit would not have helped your stated goal "When I searched aliens I was hoping to find many things about aliens (sci-fi aliens) but found almost nothing." as it contained no information or links. That which wasn't just a question appeared to be not sourced and original research which is also not allowed. Finally, next time you want to ask a question on someone talk page click the "New Section" tab at the top-right rather than just editing the top of the page.

upload not working[edit]

sir I tried to upload an image to an article namely Sister M Teresalina a image but it appeared as a red hypertext when I clicked on save page, may you please help me out because I'm relatedness to that page very much. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Suhpe (talkcontribs) 14:04, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Suhpe, files are not automatically uploaded, which I assume you were hoping for as you used a local computer path "E:\s\DSC 1417.JPG".
Images need to be uploaded to Wikipedia first as per WP:UPIMAGE :
  • If its your own image (i.e. not copyrighted) then you can upload it here on Wikimedia Commons.
  • If it's not your image and copyrighted it may be allowed under 'fair use' and uploaded locally here - but I think new users have to wait a while before they can do that.

pinyin or wade giles[edit]

Why don't you use Wade Giles ? I think Wade Giles more suitable for English ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khok Tsuenb (talkcontribs) 04:50, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Khok Tsuenb, Actually I don't use either - frankly my understanding of Chinese translation is minimal.
The reason I reverted your changes was not because of a disagreement on the correctness of the translation but because of the things that broke. By changing the translation without being aware of the overall context you added multiple issues: having the title different from the content confuses people; the image was broken; but worst is the link breaking (such as changing Wu Geng to Wu Kêng and Di Yi to Ti Yi - as people can no longer find related content.
Also Wikipedia is more about the sources and personal translation probably comes under Wikipedia:ORIGINAL I guess. However most of the references/notes are books so not easy to check.
If you think your translation is the correct one then maybe pop over to Wikipedia:WikiProject China and discuss changing these in not just one article but all related? Or you could update the article,to mention the alternative, or look for a source to agree/disagree with the existing translation. If you can help improve the articles in this area great, just be careful with how the changes on one article effect the others.
Hope that explains things and makes sense? All the best KylieTastic (talk) 10:03, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

recent edit, Brooks School[edit]

Hi, Kylie. Sorry to hear things are rough in your world. I can relate, I am sorry to say.

I wanted to let you know that I re-removed the stuff you put back on the above article. Firstly, we do not generally name names of faculty in school articles. Secondly, we do not name names on things like that paragraph was discussing unless there has been a criminal conviction with widespread news coverage. See WP:BLP1E. Third, coverage of schools in wikipedia articles should focus on what is different about the particular school, since pretty much, a school is a school. IMHO, at least in the US, the subject of that paragraph is not really particularly different. Sad. John from Idegon (talk) 05:37, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi John thanks for the kind words, sorry to hear you can relate :/
I must admit I didn't really notice the exact content, just that an anon/ip editor removed a whole section that had references in it and gave no reason. That's the trouble with Huggle, you can get a bit non content focused trying to keep up with 100 edits per minute! I'm not sure but I think I opened the history and saw that it had been removed and reverted before (by yourself [3] [4] and Swliv [5]) so would have assumed validity, rather than content checking myself as would be proper.
It's probably borderline if its ok content or not, I'm never sure with such things, but out is probably the best choice. If the anon editor had re-removed just with a reason it I would probably have left it, but they chose not to explain the reason. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:27, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Good work both John and Kylie, it seems from quick review, but I think the fact it was the headmaster; that the school communications to the school community on the matter were cited; and that the news coverage was substantial; make for adequate reason to include the info. I did the initial edit, I think (above "3" link), and John originally you did help defend it against reason-less removals. I haven't tracked down the reason-ed removal but assume it's there somewhere.
I hadn't encountered Huggle before and am not sure how it plays in here, if you'd care to enlighten me, but get the general gist I think.
I agree with trying to differentiate institutions. Alas they each have their own way of often not dealing well with this issue. So well-documented cases work, for me, both for the institution-oriented Wiki users and the broader-scope Wiki users. So much is not publicized, and matters are kept quiet to the detriment of potentially affected individuals, that what is public and credible belongs in Wiki I think.
Cheers and thanks. Swliv (talk) 23:35, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Swliv, I don't think its an obvious choice either way, which to me would indicate maybe it's worth a mention but in a toned down manner? It appears to be significant and referenced, but maybe all the quotes are not needed - people can go read the source if they want to see details. Maybe see what John from Idegon thinks. I'm not sure his reason of WP:BLP1E covers this, as when I read that guideline I found it more in reference to if someone made an article about Becker and it was only about this incident.
As for Huggle, I mentioned it in an attempt to express that I was originally only viewing the edit from an anti-vandalism check on the single edit, rather than from the overall article and context. A bit silly really as I guess most haven't heard of it, unless they actively work in anti-vandalism, and even then you need roll-back permissions to even look at it. It's just that reviewing edits in real-time at ~100 per minute, puts a bit of a different perspective on things compared to when you might be editing/reviewing articles for other reasons. Hopefully that makes a bit of sense :/

Chinese to be Anglicisation[edit]

I think Wade Gide system can take Chinese to be Anglicisation , but Pinyin only for Chineseman reading . You should see Wide Gide sysrtem wikipedia and Pinyin wikipedia . Are you English ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khok Tsuenb (talkcontribs) 04:59, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Khok Tsuenb, Yes I'm English, and languages have never been something I'm very good at. I have great respect for those that know more than one. Over on the Wiki Project China Talk page they have a couple of topics mentioning Pinyin, but no mention of Wade Gide. If you think Wade Gide is better you should bring it up over there, as I think you'll find more people that actually understand Chinese and have an opinion on this.

IDF Flickr was restored[edit]

Can you please revert your edits and restore the relevant images.--Shrike (talk)/WP:RX 05:04, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Shrike, When I discovered the issue last week I went back over my edits, as well as the edits of Filedelinkerbot and CommonsDelinker. Also I found some by other people. I'm sure not all have been found, but really you need someone with the access to be able to find any missed. Maybe have a word with Matanya as they said they had a script that could find them see here - if they haven't already run it. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 08:21, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Architectural moulding[edit]

Surely the spelling 'moulding' is correct, being in the original English mother language rather than the simplified 'molding'? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.6.253.120 (talk) 14:17, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 82.6.253.120, remember English Wikipedia is used by all English speakers from around the world. See National varieties of English for more information. Sometimes it can be argued that a topic is more to do with one nation than another thus a particular spelling. However in most cases not so we can't just have people asserting their local spelling back and forth.
You may say "the original English mother language" is better, however there are more Americans on here so some would say we should always use "American English" as they outnumber us.
To demonstrate this works both ways an example from a few days ago, see Plough and this version after an American asserted their spelling (breaking over 20 links, images, and references).
In both cases, worse than the assertion of local spelling is that it was done blindly breaking images and links, leaving the article looking crap and with broken links, and if the image files were used under fair-user they can get deleted as no longer used before getting fixed.
The 'con' of not having not all content localised, is vastly outweighed by the 'pro' of all the extra content we gain by sharing English wikipedia with all other English speaking nations. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:35, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Delete it.[edit]

The article "list of roller coaster rankings in the UK" should be deleted as it is irrelevant, and is not contsructive. First of all, Wikipedia already has an article covering the roller coaster rankings throughout the globe (albeit, a slightly outdated and in need of editing list). Why would the website need one for the UK? Are you (and/or whoever created the page) that narcissistic? Because if you're going to make one exclusively for the UK, then fairness and common courtesy dictates one be created for the US, China, Japan, and all other countries with roller coasters. To add to this, you only have speed records placed down. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.49.200.232 (talk) 17:23, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 72.49.200.232, firstly I have no link to the article above reverting your 'vandalism' as you would have seen if you looked at the edit history
There are ways to get a page delete on Wikipedia, and just blanking it is not one! You didn't even add an edit summary to explain the reason i.e. "redundant, covered by global article". They are:
  • I agree that the article, at least in its current state, is not good. It's also un-sourced which is very bad, and as you pointed out it only has speed, which is just one metric of a coaster.
  • Anyone is free to make one for their own country, or another country, if they want to - just like the lists of tallest buildings for each country, city etc. for instance List of tallest buildings in Cincinnati - If an editor had to make one for every country or none, then articles would never get created. Instead, the way Wikipedia works is that someone makes one article about a subject, say for their country, and someone uses that idea or structure as a base for one for another country.
  • In the end I really don't know if there is enough information per country to justify a per country version - I'd ask someone with an interest in coasters..... which you appear to have as your second edit [6] on wikipedia was about a the similarity between a UK and Taiwanese coaster. Instead of just deleting you could have just talked to the creator Allijukes about your concerns. Alternatively at the WikiProject Amusement Parks.
  • All your other edits look constructive, so I know your not a 'vandal', you just expressed your opinion that this was not needed article in the wrong way. So if you choose to ignore it, or talk to the creator or wiki project, or propose a deletion its up to you - all are constructive inputs into wikipedia. Have fun, but respect others.

Scratch gravels[edit]

You do realize that the image for the scratch gravel hills is of mount Helena right? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.45.44.69 (talk) 07:43, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 174.45.44.69, as per the revert comment, I only reverted because the image you added Lake Helena1.jpg was not a valid wikipedia image and you didn't add a edit summary to say why you were changing/removing the current image. The image text as uploaded by Montanabw, says that it is "Lake Helena, photo taken from east side on Lake Helena Drive, looking west toward Scratchgravel Hills" and that appear to match the view using google street view. Also as Mount Helena is 1.6Km high, I wouldn't expect to be able to see higher peaks behind. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 08:59, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Having not seen the image in question, I cannot say anything about it, but FWIW, my image is of Scratchgravel peak, Mount Helena is not really visible in the image, and it lies to the south of Scratchgravel peak. While both can have a "double peak" look from certain angles, as you can see here (Mount Helena City Park), When Mount Helena has a "double peak" look, the city of Helena is in the foreground (as it has been for a century or so). Viewed from Lake Helena, Mount Helena looks like this. The Continental Divide lies behind Scratchgravel peak, 6,312 feet (1,924 m) at MacDonald Pass. If it helps, the large rounded mountain that is behind to the left of Scratchgravel peak in this image File:Lake_Helena1.jpg, is Red Mountain, elevation 8,150 feet (2,480 m). I would be glad to explain further if there is any additional confusion. Montanabw(talk) 22:15, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Not an Act of Vandalism[edit]

Hi Kylie,

My update of the wiki page Silli Lalli was reverted on the grounds of possible vandalism. I would like to clarify that I am not a vandal; I am a responsible Wikian who donates, and contributes to Wikipedia pages. I am also a technical writer, and know the value of write-ups. I am a local viewer of the sitcom, and therefore have better context on the show. My updates can be verified through Youtube episodes of the sitcom.

I replaced the word "Samaja Sevaki" with "social worker", because it is the English equivalent for that word.

Good day!

Thanks,

Krish (talk) 10:47, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 202.131.155.21, it was an automatic bot that revered the edit by 117.192.71.108 that I assume was also you. It just revered back to my edit, which was also just a maintenance edit, it's not a subject I know anything about. I doubt it was the change from "Samaja Sevaki" to "social worker" as that makes sense, but the change to Janesha section addition "who is a simpleton" which would have been inappropriate if the article was about real people. The bots are good, but sometimes to do get it wrong, especially with relevance to fictional characters.
Also User:Krish does not exist, and you shouldn't pretend to be someone your not! However talking your statement "I am a responsible Wikian who donates, and contributes to Wikipedia pages" in good faith, may I suggest to register an account (in that name if you wish). You would have then been emailed (if you choose to get alerts) that the original edit had been reverted, also using different ip address as you do would not add to the confusion.
Lastly, just a quick note, if you want to add a message on someone's talk page the easiest way is the "New Section" tab at the top, and it will put the message at the bottom.
Cheers, and happy editing KylieTastic (talk) 11:14, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Sorry for using the anonym, "Krish". I was once a registered user of Wikipedia a few years back. I lost my ID and was blocked due to some reason. I even mailed Wikepedia about it, but could not get back my credentials. I am depending on wiki updates through IP address thenceforth. The different IP address is because I update wikis using my office network during my free time. I will take your word, and try re-registering again.
Cheers,
Krishna, Bangalore

Hunter Abbott photo[edit]

I believe you have removed the photo of Hunter Abbott on his Wiki page entry. Can you explain why you did so? What was the problem? Hunter requested that I add this photo which I did and the photographer who owned the copyright has emailed Wiki to authorise its use. Thanks. NowEddy (talk) 15:00, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi NowEddy, I didn't remove the picture, just the invalid link left as the file had been deleted. You can see the file page here - deleted "21:48, 10 August 2014" for reason "No evidence of permission for more than 7 days". I see from your talk page you had a deletion notice and that you added a comment back to January. However, its unlikely they saw it as I doubt they 'watch' all the pages they add such notices on. Note that if you link people names as I have yours then they will get the mention notification at the top.
Did you add the {{OTRS pending}} template to the file description page to prevent premature deletion? If not this would be the reason. I assume you'll get an email response when the image is restored or not - but I'm not that familiar with the OTRS procedures. Assuming it is restored, you can happily revert my edit and all will be good again. If in doubt what the state of you OTRS request is maybe ask over at the OTRS noticeboard. Hope that helps - Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 15:52, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Shahbaz vs Shehbaz, help change name[edit]

Kylie, the real name of Shahbaz Sharif is spelled Shehbaz Sharif. You can confirm it here on his official twitter account: https://twitter.com/CMShehbaz

Can you help change the page name from 'Shahbaz' to 'Shehbaz'. I changed the name within the article (which you reverted) but could not change the page name itself. Can you please do it? yh (talk) 09:32, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi yh, like many places and people in areas of the world where translation is needed not just in language but from an different writing system it appears that both "Shahbaz Sharif" and "Shehbaz Sharif" are used.
However the official government site punjab.gov.pk has his name as Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif
The official site for the Office of the Chief Minister of Punjab also has the following :
There is also the facebook page Mian Shahbaz Sharif Official
Google "Shahbaz Sharif" and you get 726,000 results, Google "Shehbaz Sharif" and it asks if you meant "Shahbaz Sharif" and only has 364,000 results
Google "Shahbaz Sharif" in just news you get 4,750 results, do the same for "Shehbaz Sharif" and only has 339 results
As such it looks like "Shahbaz" is used in the official capacity, where "Shehbaz" is used in the less official things like social media. I have no idea if this is a normal thing in Pakistan of just something he does? This means that both officially, in context to his job and thus what the article is mostly about, and in comparative usage "Shahbaz Sharif" is the correct choice, but the article should mention both as he is very clearly known as both.

Re scratch gravels[edit]

I live in Helena. Do you? I climb the actual hills almost every day. The image is of mount Helena. Search it on google. Those hills are like home to me. I would know. I suspect you've never been here. You use kilometers. We use miles. It's wrong. The imAge you used to show me is from spring meadow lake. Where are you getting your info? Check google earth. If you still do not believe me please contact me by email. spencerbartow@gmail.com— Preceding unsigned comment added by SpencerB17 (talkcontribs) 06:12, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi SpencerB17, no I don't live in Helena, and you are correct I have never been there. As for the miles/kilometres comment - we use miles here in the UK for roads, but km for heights. If you read the answers in the previous post Scratch gravels above. You'll see that I said my reason for the revert was primarily because the image was replaced with an invalid file. The second answer was from Montanabw who took the image File:Lake Helena1.jpg gave a full explanation and multiple links.
  • As I said in my first answer I did use google street view to validate, and you saying that this File:Lake Helena1.jpg is the same as looking over spring meadow lake to mount Helena I find somewhat unbelievable. click here for the best street view I could find for "looking over spring meadow lake to Mount Helena". Firstly spring meadow lake is tiny compared to the lake in the picture. Secondly in File:Lake Helena1.jpg the "double peak" is one among many peaks, unlike "looking over spring meadow lake to Mount Helena" where Mount Helena dominates. As Montanabw said where the photo was taken you can find the view on google street view here looking East-south-east over lake Helena. However, I find it difficult to tell one peak from other, and wouldn't want to say which they are in File:Lake Helena1.jpg.
  • However, as you said you "climb the actual hills almost every day", the best thing would be to take some new pictures of Scratchgravel Hills yourself. I'm rather jealous that you live in such beautiful surroundings, its rather flat around where I live! Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
    • Mea culpa on this one, looks like the two images were similar and I uploaded the wrong one (or mislabled it) my only defense is that I was just looking at thumbnails (when I uploaded and previously) and I have been informed that I need cataract surgery, so I at least have some excuse. I also took the photos with my cell phone camera, so quality is low. I'd welcome better shots. I took a look at the image in question again, and at thumbnail view, it is hard to distinguish between the two. I was shooting from Lake Helena drive, FWIW, but upon enlarging the image and looking at it full size, I realized that Red Mountain IS to the south and behind Mount Helena, so SpencerB is correct on this one. I uploaded a better image that I am certain is the correct one now, (I cropped it from a larger panorama shot) just to be on the safe side. What was weird is that I had to upload it twice to get it to overwrite the previous one, so it's also possible that somehow the computer gremlins also got involved. But I am confident I have it right this time. All that said, this other user could have just politely asked me to double or triple check instead of dealing with it third hand and then being rude to you.

Photo Link missing[edit]

Hello Kylie! I am aGastya. Yesterday I was editing this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_Energy_Central_School and being more particular https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_Energy_Central_School#AECS_Kakrapar section. Some of the errors like the school's website, Principal's name were either missing or wrong because I am the student of this school since my KG. I am in 12th grade and I wished to upload the front panorama view of the school but which was appearing in the red link and the photo hadn't been displayed. Why? Since you had removed the red link I hope you 'ld answer me!

  • Hi aGastya, all images used on Wikipedia have to be uploaded see WP:UPIMAGE (copyright allowing). I can't see this image, or one of a similar name (as names are case-sensitive), that has been uploaded. Looking at your account on here and on commons you haven't uploaded one yourself yet. If its a picture you took yourself the easiest way is to upload to commons here, however if its a picture taken from a website etc then you can't for copyright reasons. Hope that helps? Regards KylieTastic (talk) 10:17, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thank you for informing me! I'll try but if due to some problem the photo doesn't appear, shall I contact you?

  • Hi aGastya, yes if you upload a photo and have a problem getting it to show on the page, just let me know and I'll have a look for you. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:08, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

A Query[edit]

I successfully uploaded the image at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_Energy_Central_School#AECS_Kakrapar but I haven't set the size. can you please make it fit perfect?

Copyright.[edit]

Why Wikipedia is asking details of copyright of images? And the photo I've uploaded will be removed after 1 week. Why?

  • Hi aGastya, almost all counties have copyright protection of photographs. Unfortunately most sites people upload photos to have them copyrighted by default, that's what Wikipedia is trying to stop by only using copyright free images that anyone can use for any purpose. I thought you had taken the picture yourself, but I see it came from here and in the bottom-right corner it says "Uploaded on April 8, 2012 © All Rights Reserved by vishal_solanki1" - so unless you are vishal_solanki1 the image belongs to them. That's why for images like this Wikipedia needs local people to grab a camera and go take a picture themselves and upload to commons for everyone to use. KylieTastic (talk) 10:11, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

As you gave the link of vishal solanki. he is a fellow person of our locality but still this image is clicked by SJ Gamit. You can see it in the comment and Sj being my friend has allowed me to post this picture.

  • Hi aGastya, I'm not sure what you can do in that case as its just you saying your friend took the image - its a matter of trust. I believe you, but I'm not sure how you stop the image being deleted. I think you'll need to ask over on this noticeboard : Wikipedia:Media copyright questions - they know a lot more about such issues. Good luck KylieTastic (talk) 10:33, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

  • The image on that article is local (AZ WP) so can not be used here on EN WP.
Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 10:12, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

List of cultural heritage sites in Sindh[edit]

I'm hoping you can explain to me all the clickable buttons to upload images. Do you know where this is covered in our guidelines, as I've never seen that before. Seems a bit odd as it makes copyvio more likely I'd think. Could you ping me if you reply please? Thanks. Dougweller (talk) 13:59, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Never mind, I've found out why. Sorry to bother you. Dougweller (talk) 14:29, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Hi Dougweller, Oh OK! I had written this answer anyway so what I would have said would have been....
  • I agree, I thought it was odd when I first came upon those templates, and like you thought that it would just encourage people to upload any image they found on the net. Also I think it make the articles look uglier, highlighting what's missing rather than the content. The buttons have been click-able on that one since the start (June 2013) but, the red text that really encourages people to upload was added only a few days ago. Unfortunately I'm not aware of any guidelines that cover such things - but I had assumed it was done under the anyone can edit doctrine to encourage everyone to edit (that means some of us spend most of our time just reverting vandals, and copyvios).
  • Having said that, I haven't come across many issues due to this. Also due to the bots we have in place now if the images are removed due to copyvio, the articles will be automatically cleaned up. So the biggest problem is the extra work on the commons guys.
Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 14:32, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, that's more than I knew. I was told this was basically for WLM. I'll admit I agree it makes the article look ugly. Dougweller (talk) 15:18, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Edmond Charles Genet[edit]

Kylie,

I received a message from you citing your reversal of my most recent change on the Edmond Charles Genet page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmond-Charles_Gen%C3%AAt, as "not constructive". May I ask what was reversed? I can not seem to find it. I have done nothing more than remove the accent so often incorrectly used on our family name. In the French language "-et" at the end of the word is pronounced as a long "a" in English. This is the correct pronunciation and spelling of our name. I am a 4th great-grandson of Edmond Charles Genet. If this is not enough authority, I further refer to the pictured signature of Edmond Charles himself on the same page...minus any accent.

I would also appreciate the correction being made on the page title name as well...if you would be so accommodating.

I await your response with patience and respect.

Suzanne Muchnic[edit]

Hi Kylie!

I had added a portrait of Suzanne Muchnic to her page. It was an image of a painting of Suzanne Muchnic by Sylvia Shap that I uploaded onto Wkimedia Commons. I had permission by Sylvia Shap to use it on the Suzanne Muchnic Wikipedia page. I explained to her that she had to accept that by having the painting image on Wikimedia Commons it could be possibly be appropriated by someone and reproduced elsewhere. She was fine with that. I tried to follow the instructions as much as possible to detail that I had permission to upload the image. But it appears that for some reason, Fastily, I believe took it down. I'm wondering, could you please help put it back? Here is the image I am talking about. See it on the artist Sylvia Shap's website. I don't find any of this easy and would really appreciate it if you could help me put the image back. I think that these little biographies are very much enhanced by a picture of the person. And since Suzanne Muchnic is an art critic, wouldn't it be appropriate to have a painting by a Los Angeles-based artist? She is included in Sylvia Shap's ArtWorld Women series. Will you please write me about this. And again, if you are really adept at Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons and could put the image back - it would be very wonderful. As I said, Sylvia Shap gave me full permission to include it on Wikimedia Commons and Suzanne Muchnic's page. Can you please help? I cannot figure out how to contact Fastily. Thanks!

http://www.sylviashap.com/portraits_artworld/large/sylvia_shap_portrait_suzanne_muchnic.html

If the above isn't a live link - please copy and paste into your browswer to see the image on Sylvia Shap's web site. Suzanne, Sylvia, and I all live in Los Angeles. I went to the same school as Suzanne, but in a much later class. I have never met her but have always respected her work. She's actually giving a talk at Scripps College October 2014.

P.S. Alternatively, can you forward this message to Fastily - if you can figure out how to contact them?

  • Hi MusaVeneziana, As the image comes from a page with a copyright statement clearly on it, then you would need to use OTRS to provide evidence for it to be on commons. The issue was flagged on your commons talk page back last year here and for some reason it's taken this long to be removed (I normally would only take days or weeks). As it says on that notice OTRS is the only way to provide the permission. Alternately you could upload on English Wikipedia as fair use, however no other image would have to exist, and it could still be challenged.
  • I see you found Fastily on commons - and I have moved the message from their user page to their talk page (or discussion as it is on commons)
  • Also you may like to check your notification setting on commons here so you don't miss other messages or notifications (as I assume you did with the original file note on your talk page)

Hilary Duff's page[edit]

I realized you made drastic and unreasonable changes to her introduction on her page. Her documentary is not a TV series and her bigger success are being left out there. Please revert it to the previous version where it is much more NEATER. No need to involve her personal life in the introduction. The reason it wasn't there in the previous edition was because it was removed multiple times. Please revert to previous edit where it's much more neater and reasonable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adam0303 (talkcontribs) 22:14, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Adam0303, you said "I realized you made drastic and unreasonable changes to her introduction on her page" - well maybe you should calm down and look again then? The only change I made to the article was to revert what looked like vandalism that changed her birth date to 1887, once it was shown that was just a typo in the original editors updates I took no further action.
  • Your edit history shows your rather 'focused' on Hilary Duff, and in conflict with multiple other editors. If you feel things are wrong, then maybe you should consider expressing your actual concerns rather than making false accusations and just typing things in caps! You may or may not be correct about the content, but Wikipedia is a collaborative effort and you need to work with others and persuade people not just demand with CAPS! Also with regard to your large recent reverts, maybe the removed information is important, or as you said "These info are VITAL", however in revering you appear to have removed new information from 2014 so why is that ok? Use the article talk pages, or users personal talk pages to discuss - not demand.
  • I understand your frustration if you think things are wrong, but the large reverts, demands, and false accusations are not going to help improve things. Take a break, and come back with sources and reasoned arguments. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 22:52, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

REPLY:

From today's show report:

The Hulk-Mochizuki-Kid unit name is Dia Hearts. Their keynote colours are silver, gold, and black. Hulk explained the name. Dia is from diamond, as the logo mark contains a diamond. Unlike the original WORLD-1 logo, this diamond is upside down. Hearts, of course, comes from the power that comes from the heart. Like Pos Hearts was short for Possible Hearts, Dia Hearts is short for Diamond Hearts.

Stop undoing other people contributions about things you know nothing about. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.16.127.73 (talk) 19:39, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 79.16.127.73, sorry for my mistake, but as Jeffrd10 pointed out you should leave edit summaries or such edits look just like vandalism, but you did the first second time and I missed it - so my fault on that one. Sorry again KylieTastic (talk) 19:47, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
  • If you had changed it too "Dia Hearts" as is on the link you sent me rather than "Dia.HEARTS" it would have not looked as much like random vandalism. - but still sorry for the confusion KylieTastic (talk) 20:01, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

It's "Dia.HEARTS" on their logo, somewhat reminiscent of BxB Hulk's former unit "Pos.HEARTS". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.16.127.73 (talk) 21:46, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Claude Shannon[edit]

Wikipedia list Claude Shannon as having been born in Petoskey, Michigan. It is actually Gaylord, Michigan. http://www.nyu.edu/pages/linguistics/courses/v610003/shan.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.129.46.113 (talk) 16:56, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi 66.129.46.113, OK, sorry my mistake. Large number of people adding 'gay' in various forms to articles - missed that this one was real. Sorry again - I'll fix things up. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 17:17, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Links to GayGuide365.com[edit]

Dear Kylie, I don't think that link to GayGuide365.com is inappropriate. GayGuide365.com is normal guide for LGBT travellers. There are no adults sections with inappropriate pictures. I'd like to ask you, why you delete this link and link to gayscout is still there? Have a nice day Jean Fournier — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jean.fournier8158 (talkcontribs) 13:17, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi User:Jean.fournier8158, it is not to do with if the is inappropriate or not, it's that wikipedia is an encyclopaedia not a directory for links as the standard template warning pointed you to WP:LINKFARM and WP:LINKSPAM. I saw you add a couple of links, and thought ok it may be relevant to the topic. However it's clear that you are just adding your link as advertising to all articles to do with LGBT issues. If we allowed this, then these articles would have hundreds of links to such sites. Unless the site is on-topic it is not relevant to the subject and is just associative advertising. I'm sure you meant no harm and thought it would be useful to people, but its just not what wikipedia is for. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 13:27, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) @Jean.fournier8158: An external link should be added if the site "contain[s] neutral and accurate material that is relevant to an encyclopedic understanding of the subject..." Travel guides don't do that. The link to gayscout has been removed. --NeilN talk to me 13:31, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

  • I did nothing to you, you did the vandalism, and if you had got banned it would have been your fault. However, your not banned! The block on your talk page is from the last 2 year ban. As this IP has been banned 9 times in the past, I'm sure you'll manage to get banned soon enough. If this IP is used for serious edits you wont be banned, if its used to vandalise you will be banned. Your choice. KylieTastic (talk) 19:45, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Upload of image denied .[edit]

Kylie, George here! I had a disappointing issue related to my attempt to upload my antecedent great uncle, teodoras daukantas , ( cabinet minister of defense) ( 1884 -1960) image to the Wikimedia creative commons .I was under the impression that Google images qualified as a credible copyright source for uploading.an image to Wikipedia? I was turned down in my attempt . Can you help me figure this out?

https://www.google.com/search?site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1034&bih=542&q=TEODORAS+DAUKANTAS&oq=TEODORAS+DAUKANTAS&gs_l=img.12...1910.5887.0.8070.18.9.0.9.9.0.136.780.5j4.9.0....0...1ac.1.53.img..8.10.784.-DfIIs3j5Jw&gws_rd=ssl

  • Hi User:Zckjsrbn - In general most goggle images are not acceptable for commons as most sites are copyrighted, even if the owner of the image didn't intent to restrict the usage. There is an option on the google search to set the 'usage rights' but that changes the search to this, so no results.
  • You have two options: first is to find a copyright free image (including persuading a copyright holder to release it for free use); and if that's not possible you may be able to upload a version locally (on English Wikipedia) under fair use restricted to just that article. I used the website I use, search.creativecommons.org and found no copyright free images. So unless the Lithuania government has any official site of past ministers, with public domain images it could be difficult to find one. However as there appears to be no free image available, you may be bale to upload locally with a fair use claim. Just make sure to link as the source to the actual page holding the image, not just the image, or a google search. i.e. this or this, or this
  • Hope that helps. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 16:58, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
