Sea Shepherd images[edit]

Hi, I undid one of your recent addition of an image to the article on Paul Watson. As you can see on the description page, the image is tagged for deletion because it is a copyright violation. There are a lot of other Sea Shepherd images which are also on commons and are tagged to be deleted, so just make sure you look at the description first to be sure the images are not copyright violations. Thanks, Terrillja talk 16:02, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Oh, thanks! I didn't notice that :) Cheers. Pikolas (talk) 14:35, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

It is a weird situation from my understanding. Basically, IMDB is typically good as in general info is usually OK but there is some user submitted content. SSCS (the other source) on the other hand is a primary source that links to should be limited since they are exceptionally promotional and admittedly not accurate. The edit also appeared to give it some prominence weight wise (due to the rest of the section being not filled in). The revert may have been a little knee jerky on my end. I actually was thinking about ways to incorporate your edit while poking around other pages when you messaged. Since I haven't seen the documentary, is it about Watson or is it about SSCS? I feel like we need to be extra careful with how it is done so it doesn't pop out as a "Hey, go look at this!". Also want to make sure it is on the right page.Cptnono (talk) 12:47, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I am so on the fence about it that I won't revert if you stick it back in. Remove the SSCS link though. It might be better in the SSCS article but need to look into it more. It could also be a concern with the section in general (not really good prose right now) and not the content itself.Cptnono (talk) 13:45, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Go for it. The primary source you provided might be unduly self serving but it is much better then the SSCS site. It also seems t be about Watson more than SSCS. Independent coverage would be preferred (we need to find some sooner or later) but put it back in if there is a way to do it (notability impacts article creation not content if anyone else gives you a hard time). Have to go watch it since the British part isn't mentioned on Wikipedia. Cptnono (talk) 14:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Just a random thought. On one of the pages it mentions that he stopped sealing in the British Isles. I never heard of that so am just wondering what it is about. I'll do some googling and see what is out there.Cptnono (talk) 15:01, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
We actually built a pretty comprehensive history. It just got ripped out since it was too big and moved to a new specific page for the different operations since it was so bloated (Sea Shepherd Conservation Society operations). A summary is still needed at the main SSCS page but I was waiting for all of the hub bub around the Ady Gil to die down and got sidetracked on local sports. For the sake of transparency, I am not a fan of the group. If you see nay neutrality issues or anything lacking feel free to chime in.Cptnono (talk) 15:12, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Kaŝtankolora pasero on the Esperanto Wikipedia[edit]

Can you check the caption for the image of a nest at eo:Kaŝtankolora pasero? It should say that they are Grey-headed Social-weaver nests, like Chestnut Sparrow, but I don't think it does. (I found your page at the history page for the Esperanto Wikipedia's sparrow article). —innotata 13:09, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Does this clear it up: Can you check the caption for the image of a nest? It should say that it is not a nest of a Chestnut Sparrow, but a nest of a different bird that sparrows sometimes use. —innotata 17:43, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks for this "Territorial nationalism" picture! I also started the article Territorial nationalism a few months ago but never found the time to expand it... Feel free to ad pictures and/or text to that article too. "Territorial nationalism" is a underlighted subject which deserves more study. — Mariah-Yulia • Talk to me! 15:04, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Esperanto[edit]

Sorry, Portuguese does not have 5 vowels. — kwami (talk) 20:41, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, we sometimes learn the same thing about English, though generally we learn that there are "long" and "short" a, e, i, o, oo, u, which isn't exactly right either. People tend to think of vowels as being letters rather than sounds. — kwami (talk) 20:49, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

What are you doing?![edit]

D. T. Suzuki[edit]

Hi Pikolas. you've placed a NPOV-tag in the D. T. Suzuki article, but without an explanation at Talk:D. T. Suzuki. Could you give your point of view there? Joshua Jonathan (talk) 08:20, 20 January 2013 (UTC)
