Just letting you know that I nominated an article that you started for DYK - Template:Did you know nominations/The Nativity (Burne-Jones). SL93 (talk) 03:57, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

The Nativity[edit]

Nice work; thank you. I'm going to nominate it for DYK, and I hope there will be a QRpedia code on the sketch in Walsall shortly. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:30, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

I see it's already at DYK. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:36, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
thanks, Andy. You may find this amusing... - PKM (talk) 19:07, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia Meetup[edit]

Help build the Wikipedia community in Southern California at "Come Edit Wikipedia!" presented by the West Hollywood Library on Saturday, August 31st, 2013 from 1-5pm. Drop in for some lively editing and conversation! Plus, it's a library, so there are plenty of sources. --Olegkagan (talk) — Message delivered by Hazard-Bot at 02:55, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Erastus Salisbury Field[edit]

I think I just saw this article for the first time, but it had a familiar and well-done look. The smartvideo looks great. I experimented with the new packed gallery and wanted to see what you think. In general I think these look better, but they adapt to your page formatting, which can have surprising results for different people. You might want to get rid of the "-hover". In any case please let me know what you think and remove the "mode=packed" too if you think that's for the best.

Smallbones(smalltalk) 00:58, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

It does seem to act differently on different machines. See Thomas Cole for a packed gallery without the "-hover" Smallbones(smalltalk) 01:59, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Simple thanks[edit]

Last year you uploaded File:Lanterman House Screened Porch.JPG for Wiki Loves Monuments. Just wanting to say thanks for including it — I've just written an article on screened porches (how didn't anyone write one before?), and your image was perfect. I've nominated the article for DYK and suggested that your photo be the lead image. Nyttend backup (talk) 13:18, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome, and thanks for the compliment. It's been forever since last I heard of a new article on a topic of common knowledge (doctor's office), and I've never before written one myself. It was really hard to find sources — everyone knows what they are, and there's not much to study about them, so nobody mentions them very much. Nyttend (talk) 23:59, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Netherlandish tapestry[edit]

Hi again PKM. Johnbod recommended I contact you re [1], to make sure its comprehenisve and correct, so here I am. I've made a broad stab at the section, but might appreciate a more informed view. The intention is to get the article overall to FAC, so I'm now asking for input from the people that are expert on the different areas. If you are preoccupied or otherwise indisposed, thats fine, not going to be offended. Ceoil (talk) 23:55, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia LGBT[edit]

I just wanted to bring Wikimedia LGBT, a proposed user group and thematic organization that promotes the development of content on Wikimedia projects which is of interest to LGBT communities, to your attention. I am sure you are so busy with your current projects, but I hope you might be able to direct people to this group if they are interested in LGBT content in any way. Of course, you are also more than welcome to indicate your interest/support, if you wish. Hopefully we can get some LGBT-related GLAM/Education/etc. projects up and running in the near future.

Greetings! and request for collaboration...[edit]

Hello PKM-- In 2012 my students and I worked on the 18th century fashion pages and you were a wonderful collaborator. I wanted to let you know that I'm back (with a different username because I forgot my old name!) and this time we are doing a history of fashion class from the Renaissance to the present. My students will be editing the different timeline pages for the next 6 weeks, adding brief, factual remarks and appropriate citations. They will not be making any major edits to anything until later in the semester. I hope you'll be willing to answer questions or offer us newbies guidance or advice as we go along. Many thanks in advance.FashProf (talk) 11:07, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

February 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to William Russell, 1st Baron Russell of Thornhaugh may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • Russell was created 1st Baron Russell of [[Thornhaugh]] in 1603 by the new king [[James I of England|James I], but he lost influence at court and retired to his estates, where he

Streatham portrait[edit]

Hi PKM, I recently wrote an article on the Streatham portrait of Lady Jane Grey and was hoping to bring it to GA. User:Johnbod said you are great with the subject area (portraits and female period dress), so I was wondering if you could take the time to look at the article and verify that I'm using the terminology correctly? I'm a complete dud when it comes to fashion (from any age) and thus would not feel comfortable with nominating this for GA unless there were third party verification. Thanks beforehand. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:30, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Thank you right kindly. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:02, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
    • That sounds quite interesting... wonder why nobody's mentioned it in any of the sources I've had access to? Thank you for looking, I'll nominate the article for GA shortly. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:51, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Peer review request[edit]

Hi PKM, I was polishing up our article on the Streatham portrait in preparation for a run at FAC, and was wondering if you could be so kind as to participate in the peer review? No worries if you are too busy, though. Thanks beforehand, and another thank you for the help with the sleeves. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 14:44, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

JSTOR Survey (and an update)[edit]

Hi! Just a quick update that while JSTOR and The Wikipedia Library discuss expanding the partnership, they've gone ahead and extended the pilot access again, until May 31st. Thanks, JSTOR!

It would be really helpful for growing the program if you would fill out this short survey about your usage and experience with JSTOR:

Just bought[edit]

Pope-Hennessy, John, A Lecture on Nicholas Hilliard, 1949, Home and Van Thal, London, with ex libris plate for "Dr. Roy Strong F.S.A.", for £2, or about $2.50. A very decent read too. Unlike my Kenneth Clark, he has left it un-marked otherwise, though the wrapper is ragged. He seems to have bought it when marked down 75%, perhaps when being the impecunious teenager he loved to talk about. All the best, Johnbod (talk) 13:04, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

That's great! What a find. - PKM (talk) 17:23, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Portraiture of Elizabeth I of England[edit]

Stumbled upon this article. Fascinating and completely engaging. Thought I'd just leave a comment at the author's page to complement you on creating it! It's a very engrossing article, and if you had the time and willpower I'd certainly encourage you to nominate it for good article status, which it deserves. --LT910001 (talk) 00:51, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library: New Account Coordinators Needed[edit]

Hi Books & Bytes recipients: The Wikipedia Library has been expanding rapidly and we need some help! We currently have 10 signups for free account access open and several more in the works... In order to help with those signups, distribute access codes, and manage accounts we'll need 2-3 more Account Coordinators.

It takes about an hour to get up and running and then only takes a couple hours per week, flexible depending upon your schedule and routine. If you're interested in helping out, please drop a note in the next week at my talk page or shoot me an email at: Thanks and cheers, Jake Ocaasi via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Please fill out your JSTOR email[edit]

As one of the original 100 JSTOR account recipients, please fill out the very short email form you received just recently in order to renew your access. Even though you signed up before with WMF, we need you to sign up again with The Wikipedia Library for privacy reasons and because your prior access expired on July 15th. We do not have your email addresses now; we just used the Special:EmailUser feature, so if you didn't receive an email just contact me directly at Thanks, and we're working as quickly as possible to get you your new access!
