Monumental yet so personal

I really like Uta im Naumburger Dom.jpg, how did you come across it. Oh and hello. Ceoil (talk) 00:04, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Why, it's the lovely Uta von Ballenstedt! I've known of Uta for a long time, she's quite the standout medieval sculpture- specifically tho I ran into her again while translating a bit on the Naumburg Master. There's something so appealing about that gesture of lifting up her collar- like she's hiding her face but not really trying. I recall reading that Umberto Eco once said that if he could have an hour with any woman from the Middle Ages, it would be her. Can't say I blame him. Oh and hi yourself. Lithoderm 03:10, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Im afraid Umberto will have to get in the que. Top of my 'to-do' list at the moment is [1]. Yeah, Im sad, I know. But we live in hope. Ceoil (talk) 12:41, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
I've robbed, anyhow, the image for my talk. If you have a problem with that, well, off you go to become an admin and block me. 19:30, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Cait O'Riordan is very nice indeed. Pronounced facial features are definitely a plus for me... I've never understood why so many people think plastic-smooth round faces are attractive... Steal away. I would have devote myself exclusively to important things like talk page tagging and AWB browsing before I could ever make admin. Lithoderm 20:07, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Cait is smashing, she does a lot of radio here and so brimming with personality, we all just love her. She is v cute, god bless. But anyway your better off not being an admin; the badge usually drags you away from the things that brough you here. Your doing v nice work incidently, v nice to see. We should do a colab again at some stage if you are on and want to focus. Wiki is always more fun when there is a few working together. Ceoil (talk) 20:30, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, I've been reading a bit on early modernism in the US. Dunno if that's your thing. The centennial of the Armory Show, which was the major catalyst for modern art in the States, is coming up in 2013 - and as luck would have it, the German article on it is FA. Same thing with Nude Descending a Staircase, the centerpiece of the show. I mentioned these to Modernist a while back, and he seemed interested. It seems likely that between the three of us, we could easily (as far as anything at FA is easy) get these to featured. I'd translate the German sections and we'd go from there. I've tried starting on them myself, but for some reason it's easier to start from nothing than it is to try and integrate translated text into a pre-existing article... I also have this painting in the tube... Lithoderm 20:30, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Im listening Lith, but I find modern art is very difficult to right about. I've tried recently with Degas and Klimt, but found the sources too abstract for me to summarise and went down in flames in both cases. Freud and Bacon would be more my avenue, I suppose because both are figurative and both had, eh, interesting social lives, so there is a lot to write about and hooks are easy. By the way are you still living in Germany, and what part? As I said before we have a big ex pat community of germans here in cork, and I've lived there a few times myself, its a great place, a faciniting and resonant culture. Ceoil (talk) 00:26, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, if you thought the geographic and chronological problems in defining Early Netherlandish Painting were bad-- with modern art there's always a risk of it degenerating into "the formalists say X- however, feminist scholars have said Y about it, and semioticians reject both views in favor of Z; meanwhile, post-structuralists have deconstructed all three views, and by the way some random mathematician has analyzed the compositional vectors of..." --- But seriously, consider the Armory Show. We don't have to stitch an "analysis" section for an artwork together out of 15 contradictory sources- it's a history of an exhibition, its reception, legacy, etc. Though if you're really bent on something earlier, I'd like to improve the Isenheim Altarpiece and Matthias Grünewald.
Unfortunately I'm in school and splitting my time between Cincinnati and Lexington. Over-the-Rhine is about the closest I get to Germany at this point, but some day... Next time I'd like to visit Weimar and the rest of the former GDR. Supposedly there are fewer English speakers there, which would be great. It could be incredibly annoying in Munich -- You make one grammatical error and then - aha! It's a native English speaker! It's Christmas! We'll practice our English! You can recommend English-language authors for us! So that we can practice our English! Can you tell sat I am Cherman when I talk English to you? What? You want to improve your German? Why would a foreigner want to learn German? Blech..... Lithoderm 01:31, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah man Isenheim Altarpiece would be a great thing to work up, its proto goth he he, and I have already tried with Crucifix (Cimabue, Santa Croce). Have been to Weimar a bunch of times, but mostly I was in Erfurt, with months in Munich, Stuttgard, Hanover and Dresdin. I liked Erfurt best. Munich is well, Munich. Too big, too serious. Ceoil (talk) 02:48, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Yes, the Isenheim Altarpiece would be great. I'll start reading up on it after I finish my long delayed paper. Lithoderm 05:15, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your impressive development of the List of female sculptors and the numerous new stub articles you've created! Sionk (talk) 13:38, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, that's very kind. You've been doing good work yourself this last month and more. I hope to continue working with you and on similar articles in the future. Agnes Dürer is in progress as we speak. Peace, Lithoderm 20:53, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Moving Blake articles[edit]

Hey Lith, I noticed that yesterday someone moved There is No Natural Religion to There Is No Natural Religion and All Religions are One to All Religions Are One. I don't really see the point of this, but if we're being pedantic, don't the pages now have inaccurate titles? The correctly formatted titles now exist as redirect links. I was checking through some of Blake's other poems to see how the page title corresponded with the poem title, and I note they all match exactly except Milton a Poem, which has been moved to Milton (poem). That's just inaccurate surely; the name of the poem is Milton a Poem, not Milton. Strangely, the user who moved No Natural Religion and All Religions is not the same user who moved Milton. I'd be inclined to move all three back to where they were, but I wanted to get your take on it first. Bertaut (talk) 02:39, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Move them back. This is User:Headbomb, right? He also moved Jerusalem the Emanation of the Giant Albion to Jerusalem: The Emanation of the Giant Albion, and I moved it back. I saw the Milton move too and wasn't happy, but I wasn't quite as certain about that one. If you agree, that's enough for me. It's simply what's in Erdman, the authoritative edition. Earlier writers on Blake, and unfortunately most anthologists today, tend to "correct" his writing. So people who've only read Blake in anthologies come in and think that our spellings are "incorrect". The same is true of the poems from Songs of Innocence and Experience - it seems like every other week some joker comes in and wants to punctuate them. BTW, did you get my barnstar? I really appreciate your work on those articles. Speaking of Jerusalem, that article needs work... I'll have to get to it one of these days... Thanks, Lithoderm 02:51, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Hey. I moved Milton, but I can't move TNNR or ARO because the article I'm trying to move them too now exists as a redirect; There is No Natural Religion is now a redirect to There Is No Natural Religion, so when I try to move the article back to it's original address, I'm getting told I can't do it. No idea what I should do now. As regards the barnstar, I did indeed get it, I sent you an email thanking you, did it not go through? Bertaut (talk) 22:00, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Strange, I haven't gotten anything. As for the articles, I'll take a look at them sometime tonight. This is also odd - you should be able to move pages over redirects. Hmm. Lithoderm 23:30, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Got it! It had gotten caught in my spam filter, for some reason. Lithoderm 00:22, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Glad you got it, I'd hate you to think I was unappreciative! As for the two pages, I think it's because the redirect link and the article title are identical apart from a single capitalised letter. I've had a look through the help (which is never easy), and I think we may need to request a move and get an admin to do it. I'll let you take a look first and see what you think, if you can't do it, I'll request a move on both pages, you can agree with it, and it will be moved in 7 days. Bertaut (talk) 01:41, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Hey. I got an admin to move ARO and TNNR back to their original pages. And Milton hasn't been moved back, so it's all good. For now anyway. Talk to you later. Bertaut (talk) 17:08, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Antennae just sounds odd to me in that context. I checked the OED too, and it has the distinction in an example but does not explicitly endorse it in the entry. Really, who knows... thanks for not edit warring over minutiae though. Lithoderm 05:37, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Piatt Park[edit]

I am in conflict with an IP about a single paragraph in the article on Piatt Park, which you created. What's your view? —Stepheng3 (talk) 22:45, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

The section on Occupy is definitely notable, no question about it. It is well referenced, and there's even more information that could be added, such as the fact that Jesse Jackson was there in November to address the protesters. What's annoying is that he also removed the bit on it being popularly referred to as "Garfield Park". Now I've lived in Cincinnati for some years and know this to be true - big statue of Garfield, located on Garfield Place right next to the Garfield Suites Hotel - but the link I used to cite this has gone dead. Hmmm. I'll take a look. Lithoderm 19:30, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Found it on the Internet Archive. I've reverted the removal and updated the citation. We could stand to add a little more on Occupy, as the two sentences we currently have make it sound like a one time event, when in fact it continued into November and I believe was briefly revived in the spring of 2012. Lithoderm 19:35, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. I'll keep the article on my watchlist for awhile. —Stepheng3 (talk) 20:22, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Credo Reference Update & Survey (your opinion requested)[edit]

Credo Reference, who generously donated 400 free Credo 250 research accounts to Wikipedia editors over the past two years, has offered to expand the program to include 100 additional reference resources. Credo wants Wikipedia editors to select which resources they want most. So, we put together a quick survey to do that:

It also asks some basic questions about what you like about the Credo program and what you might want to improve.

At this time only the initial 400 editors have accounts, but even if you do not have an account, you still might want to weigh in on which resources would be most valuable for the community (for example, through WikiProject Resource Exchange).

Also, if you have an account but no longer want to use it, please leave me a note so another editor can take your spot.

If you have any other questions or comments, drop by my talk page or email me at wikiocaasi@yahoo.com. Cheers! Ocaasi t | c 17:28, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Blondi Edit[edit]

I saw your deletion of my edit on Blondi where I included a Cultural Reference. I have reinstated my text as the information is correct and as far as I know is the only example of a reference to Blondi in popular culture. In future if you delete an edit you should have the manners to explain your deletion. Mimaroba (talk) 06:50, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Brice Marden.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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

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

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

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. VernoWhitney (talk) 02:16, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Recommend a doppelganger account[edit]

Hey. FYI, I went searching for your account once I realized that you redirected Lithoderm to Petropoxy (Lithoderm Proxy), and realized that Petropoxy is still an open account.

Thanks, will do. Lithoderm 23:55, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

GLAM and The William Blake Archive[edit]

Hello, I noticed recently that you have contributed to a number of the high quality William Blake articles. I thought I might reach out to you. I am going to be working with content from The William Blake Archive this summer as a volunteer and then into the fall as an Graduate Student Intern with the archive. I was thinking about setting up some volunteer GLAM-Wiki activities, and was wondering if you interested in helping/supporting?

Also, I would be interested for any agenda suggestions you might have for my time with the Archive. I would appreciate feedback at User:Sadads/Blake under the Agenda Items heading (Please don't spread it too widely, I am going to use that page as mostly a working document and I haven't had the internship and "GLAM-Wiki cooperation" 100% officially recognized by the Archive).

Thanks again, and I hope to cooperating with you in the future, Sadads (talk) 16:04, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

All images sorted by book and copy on Wikimedia Commons would be a start. I began to manually upload them, but that was quite a while ago. I haven't been very active with Wikipedia since last summer, when a GLAM project I attempted to initiate fell through. Just demoralizing, I guess. I wish you better luck with the William Blake Archive. I didn't even know they were a physical institution. Anyhow, I've been nabbing their images for years despite their false claims of copyright over public domain artworks. I'll think about it and take a look at the page, if I get a chance. I would be interested in helping, if what you initiate goes through. If you're interested, I can advise re what not to do in GLAM projects, as I'm certainly experienced in that. Here's a free one - don't count your chickens before they're hatched ("haven't had the internship 100% recognized by the Archive"). Also, are you part of the GLAM mailing list? Yours, Lithoderm 23:54, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
Sorry I didn't respond earlier, I wasn't watching your page. I am part of the US GLAM list, and will be on the main one again in the near future. I know somethings of the problems with GLAM initiatives, I was on the team when we first started talking with the Smithsonian, and that was flop for a little while....
The Blake Archive isn't a physical institution, they are entirely web based, but I am working with one of the editors and with support from their editorial board (and will try to run physical events in England and in the States). I have, since my earlier comments, ironed out the details. I am well aware of their copyright claim problem, and they are as well (they do that claim to ensure that private donors will still give them copies of Blake images. I am going to try to find a more reasonable copyright claim for them to publish or give us on commons while I work with them over the summer and into the fall). Also, I want to invite you to the William Blake Task Force, it's where I will be organizing things. Sadads (talk) 19:10, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Feedback/Thoughts on Spectre (Blake) or Visionary Heads[edit]

Hey Paul, would you mind giving some feedback/thoughts/help expanding on Spectre (Blake) or Visionary Heads?

Nice work! I'll take a look at them if I get a chance, but I'm deep in the middle of creating work for my senior thesis so it may be a while. By the way, I'm Nathanael. I think you have me confused with Ceoil. Lithoderm 22:01, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
