WP:GO[edit]

WP:GO must be archived every Sunday at 0:01 UTC before new additions are made to the previous week's page. [1] Only the WP:FAC editors have been doing this, while other featured processes have not shared in the maintenance burden. The instructions for archiving the page are included in an HTML comment in the WP:GO page-- it would be helpful if other featured processes would help with the Sat night weekly archiving. Thanks, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 11:04, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

New concept?[edit]

Hi PLW,

Please explain your concept. What exactly is the benefit. How is adding blank images useful? AshLin (talk) 12:58, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I may have missed out on an edit summary but I did ask you here as to the benefit. As regards the concept, you have not bothered to explain it to me here as yet. I did see your changes to the other two posts and your edit summaries. Maybe what is obvious to you is not obvious to me. I'm not quite sure what you intend. So I asked here. Since my aim is not to get into a revert war, please explain what is your idea and why this is a good idea. If I'm convinced, I'll back you on it. AshLin (talk) 13:19, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, now I understand what you are trying to do. I'm not convinced that this juxtaposition of images is meaningful but I will give you the benefit of my doubt. If you notice I immediately posted my query about your "new concept" on your talk page. Instead of giving my query in the edit summary, I did it on your talk page. As far as doing constructive things is concerned, it would have helped if you had explained in the talk page of the first article about your new concept itself what you did and why. It's not at all obvious. AshLin (talk) 13:37, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Renderings[edit]

This discussion has been put into context retrospectively, for archival purposes, hence Papa's conversation starter is here rather than on J Milburn's talk page, where it was posted originally. (starter: [2], ensuing correspondence: [3] [4] [5])


[Addressing J Milburn] I'm a bit worried about your comment here [6]. Do you mean to suggest that a labelled rendering would not be a diagram? Or not featurable? Thanks for clarifying. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 19:43, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm obviously not making myself clear- all I am meaning to say is that a user-made illustration of this sort is not suitable to be used in place of a photo. Would we be featuring a user-made sketch of a building? No, but a floor-plan or something akin drawn by a Wikipedian would potentially be a suitable FP. Equally, a map would be suitable, a landscape painting not. See what I'm saying? J Milburn (talk) 19:50, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I still don't think I can agree with you. It seems that your problem (if we were to put it like that) is that you feel a 3D rendering is not as verifiable as a photograph or a diagram. But especially the parallel with a diagram shows the strength of a 3D modelling approach, because 3D models are unambiguously parameterised in their native file format. What that means is that while simple SVG diagrams that use a 3D perspective (or user drawings) can easily be wrong, such errors are much more readily discoverable in a proper 3D model because the original file explicitly has the measurements - perspective in a simple SVG is usually guesswork unless the author has gone the particularly roundabout way of constructing the diagram using perspective lines rather than going for a 3D model for a start. As I said, since simple 3D raytracings can be readily converted to SVG (and SVG back to raster images), I see no rational basis for the rejection of rendered or raytraced images. In fact, we've promoted a limited number in the past although somewhat restricted to articles about 3D modelling. And I still think this is no worse a starting point than a lot of diagrams that we eventually saw being promoted (this one took a bit longer and so did these). So I don't see how any of this is putting us at a disadvantage - if anything, having a spatial model is a plus! Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 21:34, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
I really think we're talking at cross-purposes here. We should strive to illustrate articles with photographs- obviously, however, as you say, in physics and mathematics articles, diagrams and renderings are more useful. Take the recent mosquito image- a diagram like that is highly useful; however, the lead image still should be, and still is, a photograph. We should not aim to replace photographs with drawn pictures. J Milburn (talk) 21:42, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, I don't think anyone is suggesting replacing a photograph because there isn't one. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 21:46, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
No, and my original point was that we should not be promoting user-made "pseudo-photographs"- instead, we should wait for photographs (or better photographs) to arrive. J Milburn (talk) 21:51, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
And no amount of armchair philosophising is going to produce the photograph. I predict it will be years before we get one that is suitably licensed, never mind the quality concerns. To me, this is purely a question of resolving whatever content concerns there may be about the computer rendering, not of barring certain kinds of media because of what to me still seems to amount to "frankly, I don't like it". So my reply to your initial question, "see what I'm saying?" is, yes I can read the words but the meaning doesn't reveal itself. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 22:04, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Would you be happy to accept my painting of a certain landscape then, if I was a good enough painter? My sketch of a certain bird, if I was a good enough sketcher? J Milburn (talk) 22:15, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Let's see...[edit]

How can I reply to this appropriately? I frankly have no idea what you're talking about. You have been raving about how I am opposed to the image appearing in the lead section, which, as I have explained, I am not. At the same time, this is completely consistent with me feeling that the EV is not high enough for the image to be featurable. If I have misunderstood, feel free to re-explain, but your sarcasm and the fact you're ignoring my comments just makes you look like an idiot. J Milburn (talk) 14:39, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

I don't have time for that now, J Milburn. I'm busy with other things. Sorry. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 14:43, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Temple Grandin at Ted[edit]

Can we please close this nom now? Not only is it clear that it's going to fail (as it was before) but now enough people have supported the close to warrant a speedy closure even under the rules that you've proclaimed. I'm assuming if I was to do it you would find some reason to overturn it again? J Milburn (talk) 19:03, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Seriously?[edit]

This just comes across as trawling. I have no strong feelings on the question- I don't care, I never really look at the recently closed section- but, especially considering his sarcastic comment, it comes across that you're just trying to be a dick. J Milburn (talk) 21:23, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

I see no sarcastic comment, and I don't know what you mean by trawling. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 21:24, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

The Gases[edit]

Thanks for going through all the work on that one: If it helps, find that spending a couple minutes preparing the list of everything I want to promote, with the creator and what it is, means I can just copy-paste the list and tweak the formatting at the various pages.

If you ever hit something like that again with one of mine, I'm happy to do the work with my own nominations, provided someone else marks them as promoted. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:07, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Signpost[edit]

Hey, PLW,

There's some boilerplate for this request, and I'll paste it below, but I prefer to be a bit more personal: I've gotten involved with helping out with the Signpost's new Features and admins section, which includes commentary and any interesting little bits that came up in the reviews for each of the content categories.

It also has a choice of the week, and that wanders amongst the regular contributors to FPC. There's about a dozen names that come to mind when I think about Featured pictures - I'll spare you a list, you've been there for years as well, and could come up with it just as easily. So, coming to the point: Would you like to be the person who selects their favourite Featured picture this week, to highlight in the signpost?

Boilerplate info follows

The Signpost's "Features and admins" page now includes a "Choice of the week" for featured articles, featured lists and featured pictures. Each week, The Signpost invites a different delegate, reviewer or nominator from each process to select what they think is the best, or their favourite, item, and to give their reasons. These reasons can be technical (e.g., related to the Criteria) or subjective, or both.

I wonder whether you'd be willing to judge the best featured [article/list/picture] in next week’s edition. If you agree, promotions from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 July will be eligible (only six days this week because the publication deadline has come forward). They will be listed here by Saturday UTC, and we would need your text by Sunday UTC. Examples from previous weeks are accessible by clicking on "← PREVIOUS Features and admins" at the bottom.

I realise the timing is a bit specific; obviously, it's because, well, too far in advance and we don't really know what will pass, too late and it's not really news. =)

If you can't do it this week, but want to do it later, just let me know when would be good. Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:18, 20 July 2010 (UTC)



Adam Cuerden (talk) 00:18, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

There's no rush: Really, it can't be written until we know (or are fairly certain) what FPs are going to be promoted anyway, after all. =) Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:10, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy closes, again[edit]

Do you not consider it a little... odd that you've just taken the liberty of speedy closing two nominations, neither of which actually meet any of the proposed guidelines? I completely agree with both closures, but I really, really can't see how this is consistent with the arguments you've expressed on the FPC talk page... J Milburn (talk) 19:18, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Completely consistent, and they weren't speedy closes. One was withdrawn, and the other had its image file deleted. What else do you propose to do with them? Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 20:17, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
They were closed early. What were they if not speedy closes? I completely agree with them, I don't propose we do anything else with them; as you know, I have plenty of time for common sense. I just got the impression that you didn't... J Milburn (talk) 23:58, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Speedy closes are those that invoke the speedy mechanism, i.e. where someone votes "speedy close". This did not happen and was not necessary, these were entirely procedural closes. Again, what do you propose to do instead, or are you just here to be disruptive? Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 07:33, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Once again, you're feeling the need to invent distinctions and define to the last order. You closed these early. What are they then? SNOW closes? It doesn't really make a difference- I seem to remember you were, equally, ardently opposed to them. Like I said, I agree with these closes. I'm just hoping that the fact you just felt the need to close two nominations early will make you rethink your entrenched position... J Milburn (talk) 10:10, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
We've been trying to explain to you that these are in a separate category. I don't know why that's so hard to accept. As for your faulty memory, please. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 10:22, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok, and what defines that category? I like closes like that, it just seems that things are only in that category if you say they are... J Milburn (talk) 10:25, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Deleted files, withdrawn noms. Everything else that I can think of is less clear-cut: noms with licensing problems could be suspended if someone volunteers to attempt to acquire a more appropriate license; I believe everything that you've referred to as "copyvio" falls into this category. If nobody volunteers, these would also be closed "procedurally", if it needs a name. I don't think we've said what the grace period for this would be, but I'm guessing somewhere between 24 and 48 hrs unless the nominator asks for immediate closure.

Aggressive behaviour[edit]

I've warned you about your aggression before. This is your last warning- continue as you are, I will block you, it's as simple as that. That kind of behaviour just simply isn't acceptable. J Milburn (talk) 20:16, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

You cannot block me because you're involved, and you'll look bad if people start considering who started assuming bad faith, because that's you. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 20:18, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh, right. Because I'm "involved", you're allowed to shout abuse at me. No thanks. J Milburn (talk) 20:20, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
You assumed bad faith. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 20:24, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I did not assume bad faith at all, I just saw the stated situation as inconsistent. You said you wanted to keep a "moderately level of control" over it. That's not how this works. If you want to have a userpage essay, have a userpage essay. If you want a glossary to be used and referenced with some authority at FPC, write one, and everyone can chip in as appropriate.

Even if I had assumed bad faith, it's not acceptable for you to behave like that. I don't have any intention of patronising you, but if you think that that is acceptable, then there is an issue. J Milburn (talk) 20:43, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Are you here to apologise for this, this and various other "visits" you've made to this page? Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 20:49, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

would you consider . . .[edit]

. . . letting me restore the glossary? It should stay—it belongs and it's good and it would be nice to see it in project space. I can't be the only one who doesn't want J Milburn's arrogant block threats to have discouraged such a useful, positive, and needed contribution. Maedin\talk 01:11, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Well, since I don't see the point in it remaining deleted, it might as well be undeleted. I don't know if a history merge would work - that would seem to resolve some of the difficulties here. Maybe you can give some advice on the technicals? Sorry for not replying sooner. Papa Lima Whiskey (talk) 17:32, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Hi, a history merge would work, yes, and I don't think it would be inappropriate. It would preserve yours, Raeky's, and Jujutacular's contributions and make it easier for additions to be made to the current glossary. I don't wish to comment on other concerns regarding the two glossaries, but I imagine that a history merge is a suitable response.
As far as technicals go, it would be a fairly straightforward case, as described here. You could do the history merge yourself as long as you use {{db-g6}} to have the current glossary deleted, but it would be simpler and faster for an admin to perform the history merge. Let me know how you want to proceed, if at all. Maedin\talk 18:43, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for clarifying, because I wasn't sure what you meant! Yes, it would be best, I probably shouldn't have suggested any other way, actually, my apologies. I'll do it momentarily. Maedin\talk 19:18, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Species ID[edit]

Well, it's certainly a Sepioteuthis and of the three commonly recognised species, S. lessoniana is the only one whose range covers Komodo National Park (see ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/009/ac479e/ac479e18.pdf for example).

Well, we could probably spin off at least a couple wars. We have a number of images related to the Crimean War, for instance.

Where...[edit]

...are you getting this from? That's not what the instructions say- they say it's a straight up to week nomination. I've undone your edit. J Milburn (talk) 13:33, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Regardless of my own actions (which I stand by...) you cannot just make up your own rules, especially when the nomination, if following the rules, will close the way you don't want it to. I explained why I did not notify Fir- he's not away, he's retired, he's said he's not here any more. There was nothing under-hand about what I did, and I resent the insinuation. J Milburn (talk) 14:45, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
When someone retires from Wikipedia, they really can't expect to be notified. No, I didn't notify Fir immediately- I've come to see that's something people really get fussed about at delisting, so I have started to do it. I'm certainly not the only person (Muhammad, Adam) who has been more than a little surprised at the demand to notify people who no longer edit. You were welcome to step in and fix my mistake by notifying Fir- what you are not welcome to do is change the rules at your whim, especially when the rules don't suit your preferred outcome.

Requesting deletion[edit]

I see that you have decided to ask for a second opinion on the deletion of Senostoma. You are, of course, perfectly welcome to do this. However, tagging it for speedy deletion as "an article that contains no content whatsoever" when that was not the case until you removed its content, is not the way to go about it. If you think the redirect should be deleted then please take it to WP:RfD. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

In any case CSD A3 never applied, as this is a redirect, not an article. JamesBWatson (talk) 14:27, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

FPC question[edit]

Hi Papa Lima Whiskey, I'm 0.25 vote short of support for my Carambola composition, and the voting is closing soon. It has some strong support but not enough people are voting. I'm wondering if you could help put one of those boxes at the top to draw attention to more potential voters? I don't mind if it fails due to many people opposing, but it would be a shame to fail just because there are simple not enough votes. If it fails, can I submit it again at a later stage? What are the rules for that? As you are aware, I'm quite new at FPC. Thanks. – S Masters (talk) 01:09, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

curious ping[edit]

Hi Papa, just wondering what's up and if we'll be seeing you back at FPC soon? Guess I'm missing your nominations! :) Maedin\talk 22:34, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Hey, nice to see you back, thanks for the "return". And thanks also for the crop of the anemone. I haven't noticed WP being any slower than usual recently, and it seems fine for me today. Not sure what to suggest, you've probably already thought of the obvious things. :) Maedin\talk 14:28, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
Deleted.
Yes, I'd be happy to work on the articles, though I'm not sure there is much information available that I can access. I will look and see what I can do, afraid it might not be much, :)
Identifying all of Nick's images that are FP-worthy and placed in developed articles would take some effort, and then there is the placing and the article writing to do for the others. I suppose several of us who have an interest in his work have probably been checking and considering the same files and duplicating efforts without realising it. I noticed your fruits table, btw, it's a good idea; perhaps something similar could be put together for Nick's material—identifying what he's done that is eligible in terms of size, article placement, and quality, and then inviting nominators to pick from the list. But who would do the table?  :) Too much work for one, he's been quite prolific. Better ideas? Maedin\talk 20:01, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.
