Sovereignty Dispute image (Falklands)[edit]

Hello! I created the map on the right you see here. The sources are in this article in Spanish Wikipedia. I have seen that South Sudan and other details missing. If you want to find more sources and correct what is missing, you can :) Regards. --Gastón Cuello (talk) 14:21, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm about to go into a meeting, so I'll check this out once I am done. Thanks!--MarshalN20 Talk 14:25, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
FWIW the image in question was discussed and rejected at the talk page here. Kahastok talk 21:27, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Kahastok. I was planning to look at other images that Cambalachero had suggested (the FAC reviewers don't seem to like a couple currently in the article, so I plan to shift the pictures a tad). Regards.--MarshalN20 Talk 21:33, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Flickr might be of some use if you want new images not yet on Wikimedia. I believe the following are freely licensed:
Goose Green, welcome sign, a skua, Stanley Cathedral. Stanley waterfront.
If you want more of a look, you can do an advanced search of Flickr and select the Commons links at the bottom (you need both the boxes). Wikimedia Commons has a page on Flickr uploads here - though my search also showed up a lot of pictures of Falkland, Fife and of veterans parades and the like. Kahastok talk 22:31, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Agree, that image is an appalling example of WP:OR and nothing but a propaganda piece, it has no place in any Wikipedia article. Just got back, what did I miss? WCMemail 22:36, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the pictures Kahastok. I'll take a look in a just a second.
@Wee Curry Monster: Great to see you back. The article is one step away from getting nominated to FA status. The only oppose is from Nergaal; it seems neither of us can agree on the points raised. If you have some time, maybe read over what happened and provide your input (maybe I am the one being stubborn?). Also, a couple of images seem to have problems (I like the penguin one, so I am a little disappointed on that one).--MarshalN20 Talk 22:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Done so. I find you're correct on most points. I feel you fell into a trap of responding to the comments rather than explaining what the content was. Its clearly GDP, treated in a standard manner comparable with other FA and sourced to a recognised reliable source. That should be our response. He is also asking for WP:OR in a comparison with the UK; sources may do so but not wikipedia editors and I'm not aware of one. On his penultimate point, he is correct, I can see where the comment came from but we need a source to make the conclusion (though I have to comment my resulting edit makes the article less interesting). I've supplied two sources that explains the final point. Do you want to have a look at the source I added, on reflection perhaps I should have named the chapter author and used the "Cited In" format of referencing - let me know what you think.

Thank you for the note. Everything is good now in the article. Thank you for the comments at the FAC page. I'm inclined to still view the Falklands as a non-sovereign state and country (the term "non-sovereign state" would not exist if there were not cases like the Falklands); nonetheless, I will not push for it if you agree with Nergaal. Regards.--MarshalN20 Talk 01:20, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
On that point I actually agree with you but its a red herring in relation to the points raised eg the CIA World Factbook ranking of GDP. He is wrong and you are right but by responding to the points he makes in error it gets confusing. Just stick to to what the facts say. WCMemail 01:25, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

WBFAN edits[edit]

Hi, This edit [1] will get overwritten the next time the bot runs. To change the nomination attribution for an FA you have to edit the relevant by-year summary list - in this case WP:FA2010. Looking at the FA log, it looks like you're correct (I don't have any idea how this might have happened, but it's been there since the original bot edit of the FA2010 file). Very strange. -- Rick Block (talk) 00:54, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

@Rick Block: Thanks for the note! I think the bot is mistaking this wikilink (User:Kirill Lokshin/Professionalism) as an additional user. The Wikilink is or was a part of Cam's signature. This is all a little too complicated for me, but I can give it a shot at a fix. Regards.--MarshalN20 Talk 01:03, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Yup - this edit will do the trick! -- Rick Block (talk) 01:40, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
