Edward I[edit]

Do you have further information on Mary Plantagenet, a daughter of Edward I of England. I have asked the Reference Desk this question today and perhaps you could give some input there if you have more information on her as your name was brought up there. Maybe you could write an article on her. Can you find information on how close she was to her sisters and brothers, especially Margaret and Elizabeth. --97.83.106.45 (talk) 18:41, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

For Mary you can start by looking at Prestwich's biography of Edward I, which is actually partly available online on Amazon (look especially at page 128.) This will also direct you to a couple of other sources; Green's Lives of the princesses of England (on Google books, page 405) and Fairbank's YAJ article on the earl of Warenne. These can be hard to come by though, if you don't have access to a good research library. If you can find these, I think you should have enough to create an article. For how close she was to her sisters and brothers we can only make assumptions, since we have very little personal documents from the period. Since she left the household at five to become a nun, I would guess not very close, though she did apparently return quite often. It should be said though, that both Margaret and Elizabeth left the country to marry, in 1290 and 1297 respectively, and probably did not return often after this.

ITN for Windows 7[edit]

Current events globe On 23 October 2009, In the news was updated with a news item that involved the article Windows 7, which you recently nominated. If you know of another interesting news item involving a recently created or updated article, then please suggest it on the candidates page.

GA reassessment[edit]

Hello, you began a GA reassessment in June at Talk:Johnny Appleseed/GA1. That review is still open, I was curious if you could review it and close it. Personally I agree the article does not currently meet the criteria in its present condition. —Charles Edward (Talk | Contribs) 00:22, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Hard Boiled[edit]

Hi Lampman! I've updated the article from your GA review suggestions. The only stumbling block I think will be how to title Hard Boiled/Hard-Boiled. Thanks for taking the time to write a review (and do some copy-editing) on the article! Andrzejbanas (talk) 13:49, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Johnny Appleseed[edit]

Thanks for delisting it and sorry not to have done more so far. Improving it is still on my to do list, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 17:00, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

DYK for Gabriel Scott[edit]

Updated DYK query On November 7, 2009, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Gabriel Scott, which you recently nominated. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Moved your article...[edit]

That news story on the drunk in the recliner cracked me up when it came out. I moved the article to Motorized recliner incident without a redirect since "incidence" would have made it improbable. Thanks for the renewed chuckle.  :) --PMDrive1061 (talk) 02:32, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

LOL! No prob, my friend. Glad to help! --PMDrive1061 (talk) 02:37, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Battle of the Somme[edit]

I didn't catch the 'new' article part- I figured a new fact, sourced and written by myself, would be sufficient. My mistake! Monsieurdl mon talk 03:15, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

Barnstar[edit]

Oddball barnstar green dark an.gif The Oddball Barnstar
For your work on Motorized recliner incident, an article that definitely would not appear in a normal enyclopedia, and whose story is made even more entertaining by its being written in a dry, encyclopedic tone, I hereby award you this oddstar. Keep up the odd work. Geraldk (talk) 14:49, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

First World[edit]

Hi Lampman, I just assumed that you had stuck the label there without reading the section. I fail to see why the section needs such as label when the first paragraph is about the United Nations, the fourth subsection is about the European Union and the fifth subsection is about multinational corporations and GATT and the final one is about outsourcing and specifically mentions the UK. Pyrotec (talk) 19:59, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Blast coordinates[edit]

Where did you get those as the coordinates seemed to point to a neighborhood? I removed them for now as a Google Earth search indicated that the street was a few miles northeast. Thanks. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 06:52, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Someone also confirmed what I thought were the coordinates of the bar. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 19:05, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Invitation to comment[edit]

Hi Lampman. I am Cargoking and you probably have seen me around ITN. I have identified you as an ITN regular, so I thought I would inform you of a discussion opened on 5 December 2009.

MSGJ suggested on Arsonal's (who's fairly new to ITN) talk page, that ITN suggestions made on the candidate's page would be put on separate pages, such as Wikipedia:In the news/Candidates/2009-12-05. The past seven days of discussion would be automatically transcluded. "This would avoid the need for archiving and it would also leave the history of the page intact. It might also make it easier to create new days because we can use preload templates, etc." The only disadvantage to this proposal would be that each new comment would not show up on people's watchlists.

You are invited to take part in discussion here.
Thanks,  Cargoking  talk  17:34, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Re:Grandmasterzel contris[edit]

No permission, informal or formal, justifies copy/pasting information from an external side to wikipedia, thus copyvio was good enough reason to delete those pages, but. I did see the COI argument and your comment on that, thus the reasoning for deletion and blocking is manyfold (notability is also dubious). The editor may well be unblocked, as they did not intend any harm, but the created article content, at least in its form, may not stay. Materialscientist (talk) 07:46, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

GA Sweeps update[edit]

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 90% done with only 226 articles remain to be swept! As always, I want to thank you for using your time to ensure the quality of the older GAs. With over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 4 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. As an added incentive, if we complete over 100 articles reviewed this month, I will donate $100 to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps participants. I hope that this incentive will help to increase our motivation for completing Sweeps while supporting Wikipedia in the process. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 00:10, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

The "poor TFA" comment at Talk:Main Page[edit]

Hi there. I saw your comment here, posted on 31 December, and was trying to work out which "poor TFA" you were referring to. I think you mean Italian War of 1521–1526 and the 70-year-old source is the Hackett book. I was going to post at Talk:Italian War of 1521–1526, but came here first to suggest that you could post there suggesting that the Knecht source should have been used more. Carcharoth (talk) 07:21, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to insure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. if you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 819 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

GAR question[edit]

Hello, Lampman. Am I wrong that no notice was given when Jeannette Piccard was delisted? I don't want to start a reassessment unless it is necessary because that area has a huge backlog. -SusanLesch (talk) 06:27, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

I did not give any notice on this particular article, because I found the problems to be too serious. If you are interested in revising it without going through GAR, however, I can deal with it directly. Lampman (talk) 06:34, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
OK. I will reply on your talk page. -SusanLesch (talk) 06:41, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Hi again. Yes I am interested in revising it. I replied on the GA review page. -SusanLesch (talk) 06:43, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Please see WT:ACTOR#Bizarre guidelines for responses to your post and extensive discussion about your post. Wildhartlivie (talk) 23:13, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello, Lampman. Thank you so much for your review. I left you a note on Talk:Jeannette_Piccard/GA1, and tried to complete everything on your list in Talk:Jeannette_Piccard/GA2. Only about three questions for you there. -SusanLesch (talk) 02:19, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

February GA Sweeps update[edit]

Progress as of January 2010

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 95% done with around 130 articles left to be swept! Currently there are over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 3 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. Per my message last month, although we did not review 100 articles last month, I still made a donation of $90 (we had 90 reviews completed/initiated) to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps reviewers. I would like to thank everyone's efforts for last month, and ask for additional effort this month so we can be finished. I know you have to be sick of seeing these updates (as well as Sweeps itself) by now, so please do consider reviewing a few articles if you haven't reviewed in a while. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 02:35, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I have already planned to include the details of the passes/fails and other stats. I'll try to sum them all up soon after we get all of the reviews in and all of the holds are over. I also appreciate you taking the time to review, I'm so glad this is almost done. --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 01:47, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

The Make-Up GA reassessment[edit]

Hey, thanks for taking the time to sweep through all the GAs, and find The Make-Up article, which was in pretty bad shape. I've done my best to fix things, and have replied on the page's talk page. Thanks again! Drewcifer (talk) 03:28, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

GA Sweeps Completed![edit]

Thanks to everyone's amazing efforts in February, we have reviewed all of the articles and are now finished with Sweeps! There are still about 30 articles currently on hold, and once those reviews are completed, I will send you a final message about Sweeps process stats including the total number of articles that were passed and failed. If you have one of these open reviews, be sure to update your count when the review is completed so I can compile the stats. You can except to receive your award for reviewing within the next week or two. Although the majority of the editors did not start Sweeps at the beginning in August 2007 (myself included), over 50 editors have all come together to complete a monumental task and improve many articles in the process. I commend you for sticking with this often challenging task and strengthening the integrity of the GA WikiProject as well as the GAs themselves. I invite you to take a break from reviewing (don't want you to burn out!) and then consider returning/starting to review GANs and/or contribute to GAR reviews. With your assistance, we can help bring the backlog down to a manageable level and help inspire more editors to improve articles to higher classes and consider reviewing themselves. Again, thank you for putting up with difficult reviews, unhappy editors, numerous spam messages from me, and taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing!

Proposed deletion of Krydder[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Krydder has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable magazine, no assertion of notability, unreferenced for almost four years

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Rhomb (talk) 22:10, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Closure of Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Gunnar Sønsteby[edit]

Hi Lampman, I've added a note above to recognise your contribution to FPC. Thank you for closing the nomination, but generally you should avoid doing so on nominations in which you've had close involvement. As the nominator, it is a conflict of interest for you to have made the closure. Someone uninvolved would have come along in a day or so and closed it for you. No big deal in this case as the consensus was so clear, but please keep it in mind for the future, :) I've made a couple of corrections, too. Thanks! Maedin\talk 07:28, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Homer Defined[edit]

Hello, I nominated the article, and only recently became aware that a GA review of it was already in progress. I agree with you about the image, considering that I work primarily with articles that have few available free images, I also find copyright paranoia annoying. Unfortunately, there really isn't much that can be done about it, most of the anti-fair use image crew can't be reasoned with, and I've long since given up trying. I don't think the lack of an image should be the dealbreaker, since it does now meet the image policy (even if we disagree with it). I was wondering if you considered all of the concerns addressed? Currently the article is the one thing standing in the way of the Simpsons project finally achieving one of our earliest goals: getting every classic era article to GA or higher. -- Scorpion0422 00:01, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

GAN backlog elimination drive - 1 week to go[edit]

First off, on behalf of myself and my co-coordinator Wizardman, I would like to thank you for the efforts that you have made so far in this GAN backlog elimination drive. It has been nothing short of a success, and that is thanks to you. See this Signpost article about what this drive has achieved so far.

We're currently heading into the final week of the drive. At this time, if you have any GANs on review or on hold, you should be finishing off those reviews. Right now, we have more GANs on review or on hold than we do unreviewed. If you're going to start a GA review, please do so now so you can complete it by the end of the month and so that the nominator has a full 7-day window to address any concerns.

See you at the finish!

Thank you. --Chris Weber (talk) 18:29, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

I have finally dealt with the last of the concerns on the page. Thank you very much for all your time and help, you have been truly invaluable. --Chris Weber (talk) 19:12, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your participation in the April 2010 GAN backlog elimination drive[edit]

GAN backlog elimination drives chart up to 1 May

On behalf of my co-coordinator Wizardman, I'd like to especially thank you for your efforts over this past month's GAN backlog elimination drive. It has been nothing short of a complete success, which hopefully results in more expedient good article reviews, increasing users' confidence in the good article nomination processes. Even if you made just a small contribution, it still helped contribute to the success of this drive. Here is what we have accomplished this last month in this drive.

  • 661 total nominations were reviewed. 541 of them passed (~81.8%), 97 (~14.7%) failed, and 23 (~3.5%) ended on hold.
  • The WP:GAN page started at 110,126 bytes length on 1 April and ended at 43,387 bytes length at the end of 30 April (a 66,739 byte reduction in the page, about 60.6% less).
  • Excluding extremes, the longest wait for someone's GAN to be review was about 11.5 weeks at the beginning. (I mistook the figure when I reported to the Signpost that it was 13.) At the end, with the exception of one that was relisted, the longest wait is now at 10 days.
  • 63 different users participated, each having completed at least one GAN, with others also having helped out behind-the-scenes in making the drive a success.
  • The drive started with 463 GA nominations remaining and 388 unreviewed. At the end of the month, we ended with 89 remaining (374 or about 80.8% less) and 47 unreviewed (341 or about 87.9% less).

For those who have accomplished certain objectives in the drive, awards will be coming shortly. Again, thank you for your help in the drive, and I hope you continue to help review GA nominations and overall improve the quality of articles here on Wikipedia.

GA nomination[edit]

Hey. Good luck with Pilot (Community). I was impressed while reading through it. I made a few minor improvements by removing what appeared to be a couple of typos. You may also want to check out WP:DASH, as I noticed that some dashes were longer than others throughout (even when both dashes seemed to be used for the same purpose). Examples are in the "Cast and characters" section and the one that follows. Also, there were other cases, like the lead, where simple commas seemed like they'd be good enough. Anyway, good luck again. -- James26 (talk) 05:01, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

3rd opinion on GAN prose[edit]

Since you are such an experienced GAN and GAR reviewer, and were so kind as to pass Amy Robsart, I wondered if I could ask you to have a look at John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland. Perhaps you could give a 3rd opinion at Talk:John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland/GA1, whether the prose is tolerable for a GA or not. The reviewer thought it was too "unencyclopedic" (without specifying), and the 2nd opinion thinks the prose "needs work" in other ways, and that someone uninvolved should fix it. I made changes, but I generally don't understand what is so wrong about it. Anyway, if you want, I'd appreciate your input although I can't tell it will change anything about the deadlock. Thanks. Buchraeumer (talk) 12:15, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

There is good hope that the issue is resolved now. I found an editor who was interested and happy to give the article a copy edit. Please pardon my intrusion but I was not aware of this possibility before. Happy editing. Buchraeumer (talk) 21:15, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

On hold for GA status, pending your thoughts about a few points I've raised on review. Nothing major, you'll be pleased to hear! BencherliteTalk 18:06, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Great, passed. It may be that one or two of the changes you or I made could usefully be applied to the other two in the series. I probably won't have time to review them this side of the weekend anyway, but on the assumption that nobody else gets there first, I'll review them early next week.

DYK Nomination for The Avengers[edit]

While the page is old, the article is new to the mainspace of wikipedia. I created and maintained it with my own original work in userspace (check history). I did not nominate it before becuase I felt it failed project guidlelines for notability. I would hate to think that I may not recieve credit for my hard work based on this, which is the opposite of goal of DYK.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 18:52, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Feel free to contact me on my talk page, here, or on the article talk page with any concerns, and let me know one of those places when the issues have been addressed. If I may suggest that you strike out, check mark, or otherwise mark the items I've detailed, that will make it possible for me to see what's been addressed, and you can keep track of what's been done and what still needs to be worked on.

Infobox Peer[edit]

Hi! I saw that you created Template:Infobox Peer. A few weeks ago someone felt they must replace it out of the blue with Template:Infobox Nobility, which I found dreadful, so I reverted and a discussion ensued at Template talk:Infobox Peer. Now it has flared up again; perhaps you would like to give your opinion there (the word deletion is in the air). Best wishes! Buchraeumer (talk) 23:26, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Passed it now. Really good article, and can't be far short of FA. The only minor things I would suggest for that are a quick copy-edit and a little more on homosexuality. And possible a check for MoS, which isn't my strongest point. But really enjoyed it and let me know if you do put it up for FAC. For what it's worth, Mark Ormrod was one of my lecturers back in the days when I was a student! --Sarastro1 (talk) 19:21, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

History of the New York Giants[edit]

Hello Lampman. I was the editor of the New York Giants history series and took a long break from WIkipedia (over three years) but am now back. I saw that you rightfully delisted the main article from GA status due to the erosion of quality over time. I worked on it and think I addressed your concerns. I renominated it for GA, if you could look at it that would be great. Quadzilla99 (talk) 13:31, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Good article statistics[edit]

The way the script currently works to update WP:GA subpages, the edit summary provides a running count of listed articles as the script processes the various pages. Therefore, the total count of listed articels will appear in the last page updated, which will currently be the /Arts page. The main foreseeable issue will be if there is nothing to update on the /Arts page at the end of the month. I added a couple pages to /Arts without putting them in alphabetical order, so there is something to update this month. I'm not sure of the best solution in general if /Arts has nothing to update; I could try to remember to post a total count to the talk page of WP:GAS, but I might forget. Gimmetoo (talk) 23:04, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

When quoting someone...[edit]

Hi Lampman. I was a little miffed at your use of a quote from me in your post on the DYK talk. That was a very extreme case of copyvio, whereby the author had contributed an article that consisted of plagiarized text buffered with block quotes. I would not have been so stern if it was minor, but the author really needs to know that this is a problem before contributing anything else to the encyclopedia. Perhaps it was a harsh "welcome" to wikipedia, but this is a major issue. If you wish to quote me to strengthen a point you are making, please examine the context before doing so. Have a good one, The Interior(Talk) 23:12, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Cheers, no worries. Full disclosure: I was in a crap mood this morning. The Interior(Talk) 23:39, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Harriss reference...[edit]

Evening! You've added Harris 1975 volume to the bibliography of Economy of England in the Middle Ages; its a good volume, but its not actually cited in the article at the moment! Were you going to add a reference to it, or could I move it to a "further reading" section? I didn't want to just undo it, because it is a good book on the subject, albeit not one I've personally read. Many thanks! Hchc2009 (talk) 19:19, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Yep, the bibliography's purely driven by the volumes referenced at the moment, although some are articles in books, of course, which inflates the list fractionally! Hchc2009 (talk) 20:42, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
I'd be delighted if you did! Hchc2009 (talk) 21:05, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:The_Master_of_Game.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

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

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Garion96 (talk) 19:52, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

I am having a dispute and would like to hear you opinion on here [2]. You created the calendar for the 2010 Games and left the word centralized can you expalin your reasoning there as well. I am for centralizing the word, because ceremonies are not a medal event, and therefore should be centralized and distinguished from medal events. Thank you.

Main page appearance[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the main editors of this article know that it will be appearing as the main page featured article on May 9, 2011. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 9, 2011. If you think it is necessary to change the main date, you can request it with the featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions of the suggested formatting. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :D Thanks!

--- Aaemn784 (talk) 16:38, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

That's fine, but when those authorities have said that there is no hope of finding the person alive, that seems like a declaration of death to me. Thanks for the copyedit by the way. Lampman (talk) 17:14, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the result of this accident is unfortunately obvious. Formally correct, a disappeared person is not declared as dead until the official authorities/the police have issued a certificate of some kind. (It might be safest.)
--- Aaemn784 (talk) 17:52, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Krydder.jpg[edit]

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

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

I just thought I'd let you know that I say your article Ektemann alene in the New Articles list--It would be great if you could also clean-up the related article List of Norwegian films.

Interview with Wikimedia Foundation[edit]

Hello Lampman, I hope you're well. My name is Aaron and I'm one of the Storytellers working on the 2011 fundraiser here at the Wikimedia Foundation. For this year's campaign we're seeking out and interviewing active Wikipedians like yourself, in order to produce a broader and more representative range of "personal appeals" to run come November. If you'd like to participate in this project, please email me at amuszalski@wikimedia.org. Interviews are typically conducted by phone or Skype and take between 30-90 minutes. Thanks!

Ely, Cambridgeshire GAC review[edit]

Hello Lampman. Thank you for starting the GA review of Ely, an article I have been helping to improve. I hope to be able to respond expediently to all the issues that you raise. You may have noted that I have been carrying out, what I hope is, a thorough copy-edit of the article recently. This was triggered by an academic friend of mine who reviewed the article off-wiki; I have simply been working through the issues he noted. I have finished working on the article for now, although who ever completes one of these articles? Let me know if you need access to off-line sources as I have a few journals and about 12 books. I can scan and send you the odd page if it helps you in any way.

--Senra (Talk) 16:02, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Not a problem. Take your time. I did not want you to review a moving target, which is why I informed you of the above --Senra (Talk) 20:48, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Glenn Gould/GA1[edit]

Lampman, I'm happy to help in this GA nom. Do I just post a note in Talk:Glenn Gould/GA1? I don't know all the ins/outs of the GA process or all the citation/footnote rules. I fixed the first two on your list. I inserted the two fixes under the Reflist template. Shouldn't all citations go within this template? Argolin (talk) 10:03, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Lampman I haven't heard from you. I am moving citations to the Reflist template. I've dealt with most of the external links. I've added some content and put his Juno and Grammys into a wikitable. Are you closing this GA? If/when you do, I'll request a copy edit (the last one seems to be a year ago) and resubmit it as a GA nom. Please advise. Argolin (talk) 20:38, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Lampman. You have new messages at Talk:Glenn Gould/GA1.
You can remove this notice at any time by removing the {{Talkback}} or {{Tb}} template.
Thanks for your extended review. I posted an ok to close at the GA (that's if it's up to me). It took me quite a while to consistently organise the citations and most recently the notes. After delving into the article, I was doubtful it would pass. You didn't mention the picture of the statue of Gould. It is just there in the article, no context, not mentioned! lol... One question, I added a References section for DVD's/Films and possibly recordings that were mentioned in the Notes section. Should I combine the Refereces section with the Bibliography section? Thanks again Argolin (talk) 09:05, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Mad Men episodes to consider creating[edit]

I have been spending a lot of time lately creating and modifying templates for critically acclaimed episode articles. You have already created "Public Relations (Mad Men)", "Christmas Comes But Once a Year (Mad Men)", "The Good News (Mad Men)", "The Rejected (Mad Men)", and "Waldorf Stories". It has come to my attention that one of the most critically acclaimed episodes in television history is the Mad Men episode entitled "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (Mad Men) that needs to be created. It appears on {{DirectorsGuildofAmericaOutstandingDirectingDramaSeries 1990–2009}} and {{EmmyAward DramaWriting 2001–2025}}. You may also note several other critically acclaimed Mad Men episodes at Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, Writers Guild of America Award for Best Screenplay – Episodic Drama and Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing – Drama Series that were either nominees or winners. You may want to consider creating some of those as well.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 00:08, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Sometimes you start a topic and end up doing it by yourself. I see you have created 5 of the 7 Mad Men episodes. You are getting some help. Some episodes are more important than others. There are a lot of Mad Men episodes that have recieved critical acclaim. IMO, those are the ones to do first.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 03:28, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Robert Gallant[edit]

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

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

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

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Sionk (talk) 01:34, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 11[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Maria of Brabant (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Main page appearance: Richard II of England[edit]

This is a note to let the main editors of Richard II of England know that the article will be appearing as today's featured article on May 8, 2012. You can view the TFA blurb at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/May 8, 2012. If you prefer that the article appear as TFA on a different date, or not at all, please ask featured article director Raul654 (talk · contribs) or his delegate Dabomb87 (talk · contribs), or start a discussion at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests. If the previous blurb needs tweaking, you might change it—following the instructions at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests/instructions. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. The blurb as it stands now is below:

Portrait of Richard II in Westminster Abbey, London

Richard II (1367–1400) was King of England, a member of the House of Plantagenet and the last of its main-line kings. He ruled from 1377 until he was deposed in 1399. Richard was a son of Edward, the Black Prince, and was born during the reign of his grandfather, Edward III. Richard was tall, good-looking and intelligent. Although probably not insane, as earlier historians believed, he may have suffered from one or several personality disorders that may have become more apparent toward the end of his reign. Less of a warrior than either his father or grandfather, he sought to bring an end to the Hundred Years' War that Edward III had started. He was a firm believer in the royal prerogative, something which led him to restrain the power of his nobility and rely on a private retinue for military protection instead. He also cultivated a courtly atmosphere where the king was an elevated figure, and art and culture were at the centre, in contrast to the fraternal, martial court of his grandfather. Richard's posthumous reputation has to a large extent been shaped by Shakespeare, whose play Richard II portrays Richard's misrule and Bolingbroke's deposition as responsible for the 15th-century Wars of the Roses. Most authorities agree that the way in which he carried his policies out was unacceptable to the political establishment, and this led to his downfall. (more...)

WikiProject Good Articles Recruitment Centre[edit]

Good Article Recruitment - Completion Award.png
Hello! Now, some of you might have already received a similar message a little while ago regarding the Recruitment Centre, so if you have, there is no need to read the rest of this. This message is directed to users who have reviewed over 15 Good article nominations and are not part of WikiProject Good articles (the first message I sent out went to only WikiProject members).

So for those who haven't heard about the Recruitment Centre yet, you may be wondering why there is a Good article icon with a bunch of stars around it (to the right). The answer? WikiProject Good articles will be launching a Recruitment Centre very soon! The centre will allow all users to be taught how to review Good article nominations by experts just like you! However, in order for the Recruitment Centre to open in the first place, we need some volunteers:

  • Recruiters: The main task of a recruiter is to teach users that have never reviewed a Good article nomination how to review one. To become a recruiter, all you have to do is meet this criteria. If we don't get at least 5-10 recruiters to start off with (at the time this message was sent out, 2 recruiters have volunteered), the Recruitment Centre will not open. If interested, make sure you meet the criteria, read the process and add your name to the list of recruiters. (One of the great things about being a recruiter is that there is no set requirement of what must be taught and when. Instead, all the content found in the process section is a guideline of the main points that should be addressed during a recruitment session...you can also take an entire different approach if you wish!) If you think you will not have the time to recruit any users at this time but are still interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still add your name to the list of recruiters but just fill in the "Status" parameter with "Not Available".
  • Co-Director: The current Director for the centre is me (Dom497). Another user that would be willing to help with some of the tasks would be helpful. Tasks include making sure recruiters are doing what they should be (teaching!), making sure all recruitments are archived correctly, updating pages as needed, answering any questions, and distributing the feedback form. If interested, please contact me (Dom497).
  • Nominators, please read this: If you are not interested in becoming a recruiter, you can still help. In some cases a nominator may have an issue with an "inexperienced" editor (the recruitee) reviewing one of their nominations. To minimize the chances of this happening, if you are fine with a recruitee reviewing one of your nominations under the supervision of the recruiter, please add your name to the list at the bottom of this page. By adding your name to this list, chances are that your nomination will be reviewed more quickly as the recruitee will be asked to choose a nomination from the list of nominators that are OK with them reviewing the article.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing this program bring new reviewers to the Good article community and all the positive things it will bring along.

A message will be sent out to all recruiters regarding the date when the Recruitment Centre will open when it is determined. The message will also contain some further details to clarify things that may be a bit confusing.--Dom497 (talk)

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:C.J. and Big Bird.JPG[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:C.J. and Big Bird.JPG. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 14:16, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
