IF YOU CAME HERE BECAUSE I DELETED AN ARTICLE THAT YOU CREATED OR WORKED ON: Please see WP:REFUND first. Thanks.

Tim Hardaway, Jr.[edit]

Can you re-insert the comma before the abbreviation? Many have started to oppose WP:JR. --George Ho (talk) 07:18, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

@George Ho: Yes check.svg Done.  Philg88 talk 10:33, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello - as at Talk:Martin Luther King Sr., would you please revert your move of that article as well as the other articles posted as technical requests? And would you also treat any other technical requests for comma deletions as controversial? As George Ho noted above, WP:JR is the subject of debate, and should not be considered uncontroversial. Thanks! Dohn joe (talk) 18:05, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Dohn joe and thanks for the message. What I suggest you do is post a list of the articles for which you want the comma version restored at Requested moves: Requests to revert undiscussed moves . I'm happy to query any further requests until the WP:JR issue is resolved. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 05:43, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I would start by requesting reverts by you of the pages you moved here (I believe that the Martin Luther King, Sr. article has already been reverted). I appreciate the commitment to treat Jr./Sr. comma moves as controversial for now. Dohn joe (talk) 17:44, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
@Dohn joe: It looks like George Ho has already sorted that list out and moved the articles back to where they were. If you need anything else please let me know. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 04:45, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Will do. Thanks. Dohn joe (talk) 14:16, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello - I finally returned to this issue, and went through your contribs to find the following. Would you please restore them to their previous versions? I realize it's quite a few, but it would go a long way towards restoring the status quo while the guideline gets sorted out. Thanks. Dohn joe (talk) 16:44, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

@Dohn joe: Hi there. The amount of work involved isn't an issue. For now, I'd rather leave them where they are until the debate has concluded, rather than have to move them all again later.  Philg88 talk 17:25, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Ok - I understand that. If we do need to revisit these moves, now we have one easy list to consult if needed. Thanks for your work! Dohn joe (talk) 19:09, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
@Dohn joe: Not problem. Let me know when the dust settles on the debate and I'll do the necessary without you having to request each one individually. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 20:02, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Need your help for Andhra Pradesh, Telangana Equirectangular map[edit]

Thanks a lot for creating Andhra Pradesh Equirectangular map. It has helped fix lot of place marker errors in Telugu Wikipedia. I tried to remove inset, as inset is dynamically done using special templates. The top display is still showing your version, though the thumbs are showing the corrected version. Can you help or let me know how to go about to get that fixed. Regarding Telangana, the current map is not equi rectangular, hence it is showing place marker errors. Can you provide an equirectangular version?--Arjunaraoc (talk) 23:35, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

@Arjunaraoc: Hi there and thanks for the message. The issue of the "wrong" image being displayed has now gone away - the Commons servers take a while to update their cache hence the delay. If you want a similar map of Telegana, then the best way is to file a request at the graphics lab. That way it will remind me that the request is outstanding. Best,  Philg88 talk 05:33, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot. Glad to know that Graphics lab is active now. I will file the request there. BTW I produced a nice physical map for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, a long felt gap for Telugu wikipedia. Let me know your feedback if any.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 12:11, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
@Arjunaraoc: Nice work on the map! Well done! Best,  Philg88 talk 17:47, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
BTW, my request filed at Graphics lab needs attention--Arjunaraoc (talk) 11:50, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
@Arjunaraoc: I know. My map making muse seems to have deserted me for now. Hopefully, it will soon return.  Philg88 talk 17:11, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

EW block[edit]

Hi, I've just noticed that you are around. I've got neither the time nor inclination to file a report at AN3 regarding Rahultewaritewari (talk · contribs). They have had umpteen warnings from umpteen people and still continue to revert while being way over 3RR. They have started several threads on my talk page and I've responded to at least a couple of them.

Any chance of you stepping in? - Sitush (talk) 07:48, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Ah, someone else has just blocked while I was typing the above. Sorry to bother you. - Sitush (talk) 07:49, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
No problem my friend. Hope all is well with you. Best,  Philg88 talk 09:30, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
I have been trying to step back but I've lapsed somewhat today. And the merry-go-round continues. If that thing isn't organised, I'll go buy a hat and eat it. - Sitush (talk) 14:21, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Having checked that article and removed a couple of circular links I see that it has pending changes until 10th April. If the problem persists I will reinstate that on expiry and deal with socks accordingly. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 15:00, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
10 April 2014, I think. I'm not sure what went on there - was PC set for just one day in error? - Sitush (talk) 15:03, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Ah, it was set for a month, ending April 2014. - Sitush (talk) 15:14, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

RM/TR[edit]

Do not try to push these reverts away from where they belong. They must be carried at once. I will not tolerate their hiding on a talk page. Any other bold page move would be reverted at RM/TR, and there is no reason why these are the exception. Carry out the reverts (or allow someone else to do so), and then remove them from the requests page. RGloucester 06:09, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@RGloucester: No need for the hectoring tone. I am not trying to push anything anywhere but rather attempting to keep the technical move requests page free from clutter. That page is not a forum for discussion and as you clearly have a difference of opinion with a number of other editors, you need to take the issue elsewhere for resolution. What you will and will not tolerate is immaterial, what matters is the smooth running of the Encyclopedia. Thanks.  Philg88 talk 06:37, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
There is no difference of opinion. The moves must be reverted and discussed. Bold moves are not allowed a fait accompli status because of redirect modification. The page will not be free of the clutter until the requests are carried out. RGloucester 06:38, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Jr.'s[edit]

It is unclear to me why you did a round trip move of Tim Hardaway, Jr. and only a one-way move of Donald Trump Jr.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 06:31, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@TonyTheTiger: As I recall because somebody requested a reversion of the original move. Please remember, I have no dog in this hunt. I just move things (within reason) when editors ask me to.  Philg88 talk 06:40, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Vijender Kumar[edit]

Sir, this is lying in afd review since long time. Is there a rule for the limit on the days an article is reviewed in afd. Most of the views at present are to keep it. What next? Educationtemple (talk) 09:57, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

@Educationtemple: The rule is that it get's closed when somebody gets around to it. I just did. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 10:10, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

That is very nice of you! Also please see this discussion. The permission to use the file was in place on the source with CC BY 4.0 license. Still the image was deleted. I resisted for it but the reason given to me was that the CC license was not in place. I then clarified that the CC license was indeed in place already on the source just below the image itself, then another reason was given that the person whom the image belongs to need to write an email to WP. If I remember the WP image rules correctly, if the image has already been released under CC license, then the email from the person in image is not required. Could you please suggest me what to do next, sir? Was this deletion appropriate ? Is the reason given upon deletion is correct?

In my view, if the image is released under CC BY SA 4.0 (or similar CC license - like the images on flicker), we then do not need any other email based permissions from the author/owner of the image. Educationtemple (talk) 10:26, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

The Guidance Barnstar

Compass barnstar.png The Guidance Barnstar
Dear Philg88 Thanks for being a guide always when ever we are in need of a guidance! Educationtemple (talk) 11:06, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Hear, hear! I second this. w.carter-Talk 11:12, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks guys, appreciate it.  Philg88 talk 11:22, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Request[edit]

If you have the time, would you mind casting a brief CE-eye on the first draft made by our latest catch? I have given it a first checkup to weed out the most obvious no-nos. Best, w.carter-Talk 00:43, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Some copyediting done kompis but I'll wait until it's moved to article space before polishing. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 06:54, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much! We'll get back to you about that. (Also ping @Ceannlann gorm: for this entry.) About the "in/on" thing. The title was my suggestion. We who live there never say anything but "on Gotland". But apart from being an island, Gotland is also a county, a region, a municipality, a province, an administrative unit, a diocese and a military area. And things happens "in" all of those, and I have come to accept that English like to use the "in" for Gotland in regards to these. Even though it goes against everything that feels "right" for me. So, the question is: Should we "trust the natives" and let the island thing take precedence over the rest for the title? Best, w.carter-Talk 07:39, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. As for the "in" and "on", the guideline suggests using the version most common in the English language; since this is a prepositional rather than a nounal matter, the most common usage is that of a native English speaker/writer, which is "on". E.g "on the Isle of Wight" cf. "in London". Best,  Philg88 talk 09:38, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Ok, then "on " it is. :) I'm very happy to hear that. Can I make the correction as I move it to main later, or is that something I have to make a request for? w.carter-Talk 11:11, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
Feel free to move it when you're ready, no request necessary. Face-smile.svg  Philg88 talk 13:50, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Last refs added and article moved to main. Normal housekeeping with cats, projs, archive, links done. Ta-dah! w.carter-Talk 22:12, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Nice work kompis! I will give the article the once over in the next couple of days. Best,  Philg88 talk 06:12, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Apology[edit]

I recently made edits on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard concerning Philg88. I would like to make it totally clear that I did not mean the content of the message. It was a quote from an editor I have raised an ANI about. I'm afraid I was making a point about the language the editor was using that should not have involved another editor. I unreservedly apologise Philg88...I most certainly did not mean what I wrote.__DrChrissy (talk) 20:58, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

@DrChrissy: Apology accepted. It's perfectly understandable that you are unhappy about what has transpired at ANI and ANI but lashing out at other editors won't solve anything. Maybe the time has come for you to drop this and get back to the business of building an encyclopedia. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 05:37, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Military in Gotland[edit]

Just a quick note to let you know that I've put in a DYK nomination for the above article which you helped to bring to fruition. Thanks again for your help! Ceannlann gorm (talk) 22:56, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome, my friend but I didn't do a great deal. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 11:45, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Ha ha. I could of course reciprocate with a special 24 hour April Fools Day block, but I won't as there is no suitable template available. Face-smile.svg. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:30, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Is it right?[edit]

Hello Dear Philg88. I seek your advise - if this is right to report openly about the misconduct of some user as I just did on this afd page based on my observations. I dont want to violate someone's rights, if any on any matter. Educationtemple (talk) 05:26, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

@Educationtemple: Hey there! Although AfD isn't the best place to flag a conflict of interest (use this noticeboard for that), it is germane to the deletion discussion so does no harm. I've tidied up your original posting a bit to make things clearer. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 05:39, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Question?[edit]

Dear Philg88, could you please act as independent, impartial Admin (as you always are of course like many other admins here on WP) to reasonably conclude the discussion on this afd? My detailed, firm stand is written here in last comment, that apply to both of these articles. Educationtemple (talk) 13:55, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Patience, my friend. The AfD only started two days ago. The rules say it stays open for seven, and I see no exceptional reason for an early close. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 16:10, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Sure my friend. Educationtemple (talk) 16:29, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Educationtemple (talk) 14:45, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

you can replace (or rather incorporate) the current content[edit]

Hello Philg88. I writing an articles about the german computer pioneer Georg Nees in German [1] and English [2]. This articles are now, maybe, ready. My mentor on de:WP is looking for the last mistakes. I wrote the articel complet new in my one words. I also translated it and some wording in English are different to German. I need nothing to copie from the existing article Georg Nees. I just used the idea about the graphics "Gravel Stones/Schotter" and "Locken'". The name Locken is not used by Nees, somebody invented it years later. The correct name I found via Frieder Nake and in the first book by Nees in 1969. I would like to replace the old article - I think I can nothing from the old article incorporat. I also dit an update of the references and added many more. Beside, some of the old text is not copyright correct.

I am not in a hurry and don't like to do something wrong. My question is: what do I have to do, that all things going correct? Regards- --Maxim Pouska (talk) 18:24, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@Maxim Pouska: Hi there! I only have tablet access this weekend so I'll take a look on Monday. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:00, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
@Philg88: Hello, just information. My article about Alex Kempkens, a computer artist too, is today on the main page de:WP [3]. Cheers, --Maxim Pouska (talk) 06:20, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
@Maxim Pouska: Thanks. I've done some clean up on your draft, which is on the whole an excellent first article, well done! What you need to do now is to merge your work into the existing article. We don't simply replace articles on en Wikipedia as it is important to maintain the contribution history. If you are unsure how to go about the merge let me know and I will do it for you.

Hello - I am unsure about to do it. I just did look at the article Spillings Hoard, Gotland Museum - to learn more. I don't know all the html code because I just try to learn it in the last three months. If you can do it for me it helps me to learn again. Many thanks --Maxim Pouska (talk) 06:49, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────(talk page stalker) Hello again Maxim Pouska! You have certainly come to the right place for some very good advice, and I agree with Philg88 that the article is very, very good for a newbie article. :) Now just a comment about the code we use here on the WP: It is not strictly html, but rather a code unique to the WP. It takes some time to get used to all the intricacies of I and you don't have to learn it all at once. There is another new editor here who I have taught the beginnings of "code-knowledge" to. If you want to, you can follow the "lessons" and "teachings" that have developed on that user's talk page here. Maybe you can pick up some things there. :) Another very useful page for the code is the Help:Cheatsheet where all the most common code-things are collected, how they are used and what they are called. All the best, w.carter-Talk 18:12, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

@Maxim Pouska: OK, I've merged the draft with the existing article.  Philg88 talk 05:43, 21 April 2015 (UTC)


@Philg88: and @W.carter: many thanks for your help. I will use your information for my work here at Wikipedia.--Maxim Pouska (talk) 08:11, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Museums are dangerous[edit]

I went to the Gotland Museum to get some of the last pictures for the article, and I took a stroll... Now, reading about a treasure is one thing, but getting close up and personal with 67 kilos of Viking treasure is something entirely different! :) Lights, camera, action, and a detour to the library as well. I'm mostly astonished that no one had written about it before. So I did, and got my first double DYK. Not 100% sure I got it right, I could only place the template on one of the articles, but I suppose that's the way it is. Anyway, if you have the time and feel so inclined, could you check the Spillings Hoard for me? Best, w.carter-Talk 22:18, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Nice article, kompis. Well deserving of a double DYK  Philg88 talk 06:01, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Like that! :-) --AmritasyaPutraT 06:17, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you sooo much! Face-smile.svg w.carter-Talk 07:24, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── ... well things are getting really screwed up at the dyk nomination page. Care to take a look? w.carter-Talk 00:22, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Resolved, finally, I think. w.carter-Talk 01:04, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Hey kompis. A lot of people forget the draft/sandbox move rule but it looks like it's sorted now. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 05:07, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Phil got left out[edit]

I know you helped, but only W.carter gets a star. :( On the bright side, I will buy you a real life beer instead. :) Now, I am wondering, which is worth more, a real life beer or a virtual barnstar?? This is a deep question. I would guess 2 beers = 1 barnstar. Hmmm, maybe 2 barnstars = 1 beer. Tricky. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 08:01, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

@Anna Frodesiak: In this case it's a no-brainer: According to any equation, we all owe Phil kegs of beer! w.carter-Talk 08:31, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Hang on a sec. We do not know how Phil thinks. Maybe to him, 1 star = .5 of a beer. We are talking about real, tangible beer here. You just try watching a movie with a bag of barbecue chips and a barnstar and see how that works out for you. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:05, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Being a Brit, I can only trade barnstars on a pint per star basis Face-smile.svg.  Philg88 talk 09:09, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Original Beerstar
Six dozen of one and half a dozen of...how many is that? Anyway, have an Original Beerstar on me. Try it with some barbecue chips. :) Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:53, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I shall quaff it slowly with pumpkin seed and Emmental cheese crackers rather than barbeque chips.  Philg88 talk 09:59, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Just wanted to thank you for your swift attention to my move request for Kittatinny Mountain. I appreciate your help.--JackTheVicar (talk) 19:54, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome, Jack. Happy editing!  Philg88 talk 21:33, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

There may not be a need to...[edit]

but it feels good to do so at times. I don't apologize for my language in this instance. --Onorem (talk) 08:26, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

This edit summary does not give me hope. --NeilN talk to me 08:57, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
@Onorem: It probably does but I have to try and maintain balance. Thanks for taking the time to explain. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 09:00, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
@NeilN: Sigh ...  Philg88 talk 09:01, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

ANI Closure[edit]

I accept your closure and the trouting at Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Possible_canvassing, but I want to ask: so it's okay to post on 100s of article talk pages like that? That seems disruptive at the least. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 16:20, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

I have no intention of prolonging discussion of this now closed "incident". FWIW, what I will say is that when an action, in this case Guy's is a genuine attempt to improve the encyclopedia it cannot be considered disruptive, however much you may not like it.  Philg88 talk 16:34, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
