User:Zigzig20s/Franklin Moss Bennett[edit]

Hi. I see you create/edit a lot of painters. Are you interested in helping me expand this draft so that it can be moved to a proper article? I'd like it to be a start at least. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 23:57, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I can take a look in a few days. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:01, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
He's actually Frank, not Franklin. I'll have to be careful when I move it. I've added a bit more, but not enough. Not sure if we could add some of his paintings through fair use as well. You seem to know how to do that!Zigzig20s (talk) 01:38, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
There should also be a page about Dexter Brown, see this, this, this...Zigzig20s (talk) 01:50, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, nice paintings. Not sure what to call his style. Philafrenzy (talk) 09:37, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
We may be able to work together often if you are interested in creating/editing pages of painters/artists at Sotheby's/Christie's/Bonhams auctions in London.Zigzig20s (talk) 12:23, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, as long as you have not just got a job with them! Philafrenzy (talk) 12:28, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
I wish. I have started User:Zigzig20s/Dexter Brown. I didn't realise the auction was in the afternoon. Seems a bit late now to get ready and jump on the bus!Zigzig20s (talk) 14:28, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Also User:Zigzig20s/Andrew Tift (because I sometimes watch this). OK, three's enough for now. Free free to help me expand them. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 19:34, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
OK. I asked you here. Voila.Zigzig20s (talk) 22:37, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Let me know if you are still interested. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 15:39, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I did quite a bit on it I think. I will try to add a bit more when I can. Philafrenzy (talk) 18:23, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I meant Tift and Brown. I'd like them both to be strong enough to move them to proper article space and not get deleted.Zigzig20s (talk) 21:24, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Done. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:01, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Would you mind checking it again? It's still not letting me send you email. Gamaliel (talk) 21:38, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Try it now please. Thanks. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:50, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
It worked. Thanks! Gamaliel (talk) 22:14, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Got it thanks. I will follow the instructions. Philafrenzy (talk) 22:16, 3 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello again. You seem to understand how to upload pictures without flouting copyright. Is it possible to add this picture to Wikimedia Commons please? If it is, I would like to add it to the new article I am working on at User:Zigzig20s/Temple Beth Am (Los Angeles, California). I hope you don't mind. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:05, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes but I can't do it until the article is in mainspace as the fair use rules require that. The image also needs to be essential to the understanding of the article, or a part of it, so you need to add relevant text to the article in that respect. When you have done that and moved it, the image can be added. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:11, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Btw I am about to create Janice Levin, an art collector who was a patron to the cantor at Temple Beth Am. It's a small world.Zigzig20s (talk) 21:35, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
You may be interested in some of the paintings formerly owned by Janice H. Levin?Zigzig20s (talk) 14:25, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Good article, but be careful, you have got both of the paintings wrong. It's a pastel of the Degas stock exchange picture that she owned, not the oil painting at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, and the Monet cliff scene that she owned is this one, not the one you have linked in the article. You will need to correct all three articles. Artists often painted the same scene repeatedly (especially the Impressionists) and made preliminary drawings or oil sketches or tried different mediums such as pastel, watercolour or oil. Nice effort though! Philafrenzy (talk) 16:32, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Done. I had no idea. Perhaps you could add a note on her talkpage to avoid future mistakes. Funny how I saw her name in this article while working on Temple Beth Am and wondered, who is that woman? Then I found a lot. Her son might be Adam K. Levin, but I need to find a reference. Her husband needs a page, too.Zigzig20s (talk) 16:40, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
You could add the cliff scene (the right one) to the article if you have no other images. It's always nice to have something, though it has to be said that that one is nothing special. Philafrenzy (talk) 16:45, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Would you be able to upload the correct paintings to Wikimedia Commons otherwise?Zigzig20s (talk) 17:25, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Why don't you add the Monet to Commons? It might already be there in fact. I don't know if there is an image of the Degas bankers pastel. It would be the more interesting of the two if there was. Philafrenzy (talk) 17:40, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
I only upload pictures I have taken myself.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:00, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Why? Philafrenzy (talk) 18:13, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Here are the relevant images. You could create a whole gallery. The pastel of the Degas is included. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:50, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't fully understand how copyright works beyond giving away the rights on whatever I own. Is this copyrighted btw? Otherwise I may ask my LA-based photographer to take a picture (although we've focused on BH so far).Zigzig20s (talk) 20:14, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes that is copyright because 1) it is recent and 2) the photographer did not give away his rights. I think this would be a good time for you to learn more about this topic. Generally anything two-dimensional (like a painting) is out of copyright 70 years after the creator's death and can be uploaded using a PD-Old licence. Obviously there are all sorts of finer details but you will be safe with Degas and Monet. Go to it! Philafrenzy (talk) 20:22, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
We'll see. I am caught up in the history of LA-based rabbis right now. Hopefully this will lead to long articles about their roles in the movie industry.Zigzig20s (talk) 22:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
Just try it and stop prevaricating. If you can do your own you can do the others. It's really easy. Philafrenzy (talk) 22:02, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Alfred Charles Stanley Anderson.jpg[edit]


Thanks for uploading File:Alfred Charles Stanley Anderson.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:17, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

William M. Kramer[edit]

Perhaps you will be able to find more about his collection of German Expressionist art.Zigzig20s (talk) 02:45, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

I added a little. That was an engraving not a painting. Maybe more later. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:41, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
Are you interested in photography? Would you be able to expand User:Zigzig20s/Sydney Irmas please?Zigzig20s (talk) 01:17, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Possibly, as soon as it is in mainspace. Nice to see that "Despite being a woman, his mother graduated from the University of Southern California"! Philafrenzy (talk) 09:32, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I meant for the time lol. Unfortunately I don't know his mother's name. She might be prominent. I will move both his and his wife's pages, hang on.Zigzig20s (talk) 12:52, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
OK, there you go: Sydney M. Irmas and Audrey Irmas. Please expand them if you can! Btw, it was fun to find out that the modernist house I used to stroll by whenever I went to Holmby Park was theirs.Zigzig20s (talk) 13:01, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I think that was his mother.Zigzig20s (talk) 13:06, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Their son Matthew directed When the Party's Over and A Carol Christmas, but I'm not sure if that's enough to create his page. Their other son Robert ran for sheriff in 1994 apparently.Zigzig20s (talk) 13:19, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I will try to take a look later. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:20, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
You may also be interested in Edwin Davies because of the Edwin and Susan Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum...Zigzig20s (talk) 18:57, 14 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello, the information about the CWM FX site is incorrect. As an employee of the company I'm not eligible to correct the mistakes. Below is a corrected version of the content.

CWM FX is a London based foreign exchange trading company providing retail traders with access to the Forex Market to trade Currency Pairs and CFDs on a Straight Through Processing model. CWM FX is operated by Leverate Financial Services Limited, a Cyprus Investment Firm (CIF) licensed and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission.[1] CWM FX is also compliant with MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) - the European Union law that provides regulation for investment services across the member states of the European Economic Area.

The chief executive of the firm is Craig Droste.[2] The firm is located in the Heron Tower at 110 Bishopsgate, otherwise known as Salesforce Tower.

Sports Sponsorship

The firm is known for its sports sponsorship deals, which include football, rugby, boxing and motorsports. Besides being the "online forex trading partner" of Chelsea Football Club [3] its portfolio of sponsorships also include Wigan Warriors Rugby League, CWM Cyclone boxing promotions, CWM LCR Honda in MotoGPTM, SVR team in the Renault Clio Cup, the Sports Industry Breakfast Club and the sponsorship of the Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award in 2015.

Sport Industry Group In February 2015 Sport Industry Group has announced CWM FX as the title sponsor of the Sport Industry Breakfast Club, becoming the “Sport Industry Breakfast Club, powered by CWM FX”. As part of the partnership, CWM FX will also sponsor the Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award in 2015.

London Boat Show In November 2014 it was announced that CWM FX had become the title sponsor for the London Boat Show and from 2015 the show would be known as the CWM FX London Boat Show.[5][6]

Charity The company is also known by its involvement with charities, especially related to fight against cancer. In 2014 CWM FX had a helmet signed by 12 MotoGP™ stars and put in auction. The helmet made a record-breaking €255,000 (£200,000) and all proceeds went to AECC (Spanish Association against Cancer) and Riders for Health. Also in 2014 CWM FX donated 10,000£ to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation during the CWM FX London Boat Show.

The only important part of this that differs seems to be the name of the CEO. Please add future messages to the talk page of the article. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:57, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Revised to make clear that there are two executives there (though it is not clear from the firm's website who is actually the CEO). Philafrenzy (talk) 12:21, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Roll of Distinguished Philatelists[edit]

I know you have doen quites some work on some of the individuals on the Roll of Distinguished Philatelists. I've been working on Kanai but have found quite little available so if you can assist please fell free to edit my draft at User:Ww2censor/Kanai_Hiroyuki. TIA ww2censor (talk) 11:27, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

You call that "little"? I will see what I have. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:29, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I thought it was little a collector with such a famous collection; it is mostly philatelic. More personal life stuff would be good if you can find anything else. Otherwise I will just put it up as it is. ww2censor (talk) 14:56, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I added a little, including the firm that he was mainly associated with. That may provide leads for his non-philatelic life. Apart from that, most of the information I have is also philatelic but I will take a further look in due course. Philafrenzy (talk) 01:04, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the input. It is now in mainspace at Kanai Hiroyuki. I was unable to find anything based on the company name you provided.


Hi, though I am not sure, as I am new, I think here, Template:Did you know nominations/Tomb of Aurangzeb, you should have given a green tick. RRD13 দেবজ্যোতি (talk) 17:56, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

John Tweed[edit]

Cycled past John Tweed's blue plaque today. Rare example of someone with a blue plaque but until ten minutes ago, no article. Would you like to collaborate towards a DYK (we've not done that in a while)? I will add a better plaque photo tomorrow. Edwardx (talk) 00:25, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Certainly. I did a photo tour on foot of Monken Hadley earlier (where people with real money live) and have a camera full of fine houses and plaques including Livingstone Cottage, home of Dr. David Livingstone. Trying to remember to take my camera everywhere. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:32, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Are you sure it was Dr Livingstone's house, or do you just presume that to be so? I have 100s, probably 1000s of photos still to upload. It can all get out of hand. Edwardx (talk) 09:07, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
And Margery Blackie, another blue plaque without an article. But if you add too much, maybe my contribution will disappear. Edwardx (talk) 09:41, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Don't worry, even if I expand the article 100,000 times, some memory of your original article will continue to have an effect. Philafrenzy (talk) 13:51, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Luxembourg Freeport[edit]

A forthcoming DYK, Luxembourg Freeport, might be more to your taste. Looks to be a very tax-efficient way of "collecting" art. Edwardx (talk) 20:27, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Everything is to my taste, that is the problem. Interesting article. I may register myself as a freeport and go tax free by only leaving through the back door. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:36, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
In a sense, the super-rich, or at least their collectables, really do live in a parallel universe. And the owner, Yves Bouvier, has been arrested for fraud in "a sunny place for shady people". Edwardx (talk) 20:46, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
He doesn't need to worry. Probably no jail sentence and all is forgiven when you have serious money. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:54, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
He's out on bail of €10 million "to be paid in three installments" - bail in installments is a new one on me. Fascinating story at Forbes: Steve Cohen's Modigliani In The Middle Of An Art Market War: Billionaire Rybolovlev vs Yves Bouvier Edwardx (talk) 20:59, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Bullion rooms at the Luxembourg Freeport.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Bullion rooms at the Luxembourg Freeport.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

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.
