More photos for aces[edit]

{{PD-SDASM}} Hello,

For whatever obscure whim, I returned to Flickr and found another bunch of World War I pilots. If you would care to insert these into articles, here's the list:

Fritz Beckhardt = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091917878/in/photostream/

Josef Mai = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091917544/in/photostream/

Hantlemann is third from left @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091917470/in/photostream/

Gustav Dorr = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911985/in/photostream/

Heinrich Kroll = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911761/in/photostream/

Oskar Hennrich = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911397/in/photostream/ Karl Bolle = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911101/in/photostream/

Otto Schmidt = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091911075/in/photostream/

Erik Thomas = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091916220/in/photostream/

Adolf von Tutschek = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091910225/in/photostream/

Otto Parschau = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091910211/in/photostream/

Friedrich von Roeth = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091915434/in/photostream/

Hans Muller (later Hans Garrelt) = http://www.theaerodrome.com/aces/germany/muller1.php

Rudolf Berthold = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091913128/in/photostream/

Hans Berr = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907755/in/photostream/

Hans von Adam = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907583/in/photostream/

Hans-Joachim Buddecke (in Ottoman uniform) = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907541/in/photostream/

Friedrich Manschott = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912652/in/photostream/

Karl Allmenroeder = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912566/in/photostream/

Karl Thom = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907169/in/photostream/

Gustav Leffers = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091912402/in/photostream/

Max Ritter von Mueller = http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdasmarchives/8091907019/in/photostream/

Incidentally, Beckhardt's photo was misidentified as Hermann Gilly, so I removed it from the Gilly article. However, as Gilly never flew a Siemens-Schuckert D.IIInor had a personal insignia of a swastika, it is obviously a (poor) photo of Beckhardt.

I hope you will post these, as I seem to be moderately hopeless at the task.

File:Boelckeo.JPG[edit]

Please remember that you are "indefinitely prohibited from uploading images or other media files to the English Wikipedia." (from your Wikipedia:Editing restrictions). Your upload of a new version of File:Boelckeo.JPG is a violation of that restriction. Fram (talk) 14:58, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Take it to Arbitration, I do not see adjusting the contrast of an existing image as a violation. Thank you for your concern. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 15:20, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
I have no ambition to get you blocked for this. I don't think it is a smart move to test the boundaries of your restrictions though. Doing such things too often or too blatantly will get you blocked again, and for a longer time, and also reduce your chances of getting the restrictions lifted or modified. Fram (talk) 15:32, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Arbitration enforcement is not meant to be a punishment, it is designed to remedy a specific problem, which was uploading questionable content. If content is already vetted, and I adjust the contrast, it is not a violation of that restriction. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 15:37, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
No, our policies are meant to prevent copyright violations. Restrictions are meant to save people the effort of having to check every edit an editor makes to see whether it violates our policies. "You are not allowed to upload questionable content" (or "to link to copyright violations", and so on) are policies which apply to everyone. "You are not allowed to upload any files" is a restriction which is much more strict, and which only applies to you. Claiming that if an upload (or article creation, or whatever) doesn't violate our policies, it should be allowed, is ignoring your restrictions. Fram (talk) 15:45, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Then take it to arbitration, so it can be made clearer. I can see that it is bothering you greatly, so have it cleared up. I do not see it as a potential copyright violation. You certainly are the Javert of Wikipedia. So please take it to arbitration. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 15:57, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Please keep your personal attacks to yourself. If I thought this was a copyright violation, you would have been at arbitration enforcement. I said that it was a restriction violation. I can't help you if you can't see the difference between those two. Fram (talk) 22:23, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
You also see personal attacks when there are none ... --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 05:47, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Comparing people to fictional characters who are described in the novel as "a fanatic" and "[he] was to be pitied, as is every ignorant man who triumphs." and by critics as "He is "one of the most tragic legalists in Western literature" and "the consummate legalist"." is a personal attack. That "[he] finds himself unable to reconcile his life's work pursuing criminals with the nobility and justice shown him by the man he thought was a criminal, and takes his own life by jumping off a bridge into the river Seine." (as our article describes it) only makes it worse. Fram (talk) 08:00, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
You do seem to me to be a somewhat fanatical legalist. Fanatical in watching my every edit. Legalistic in declaring that altering the contrast of an existing image is a violation of the ban and that restoring someone else's edit is a copyright violation. You are looking for a "gotcha" moment to get me permanently blocked, I would say the moniker is apt. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 03:16, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

"Died on birthday" lists[edit]

Hi Richard, I'm trying to work on the MfD backlog. Are you intending to maintain User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958- )/List of people who died on their birthdays as well as User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958- )/Death on Birthday? Also pinging Buddy431, whose User:Buddy431/List of people who died on their birthdays is at MfD but may be inactive. Obviously, if the intent is to try such a list in mainspace again, it makes sense to maintain one of these lists collaboratively. If the intent is to keep them in userspace indefinitely, I'm afraid I have to agree that the pages should be deleted. --BDD (talk) 21:08, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

I was migrating raw data from "List" to "Death" and I am not sure I finished all the data. I will work on it more and delete the ones migrated from the old list and then have just one version. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 21:19, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. This may be worth mentioning at the MfD. --BDD (talk) 21:31, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Hmm - not quite clear where to put this point, but I guessed something on the talk page of the "died on birthday" list, where the truth was the converse of what I guessed. According to this study -- https://ideas.repec.org/a/eee/socmed/v126y2015icp59-66.html -- you're 6.7% more likely to die on your birthday than would be explained by chance. Suicide and partying seem to be the culprits. Nightspore (talk) 13:36, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Arbcom amendment request[edit]

Your amendment request has been declined by the committee.


AFD Catherine Uhlmyer & Adella Wotherspoon[edit]

Notice of Edit warring noticeboard discussion[edit]

This message is being sent to inform you that there is currently a discussion involving you at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring regarding a possible violation of Wikipedia's policy on edit warring. Thank you. Robin Hood  (talk) 21:42, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Fiona Graham[edit]

Hi Richard, re: the report on RfPP, you've been reverting a lot to restore that birth year. It might be best to leave it out until a wider consensus forms, especially as it might be the subject removing it, and you don't know which year is correct. Best, Sarah (SV) (talk) 02:29, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Can you cite some actual Wikipedia policy that says 5 - 1 = 0? You are using the fallacy of false equivalency as your argument. The subjects of articles do not get to override Wikipedia policy. They want the publicity of being in Wikipedia and also want to be the editors and remove what they do not like. You cannot have it both ways. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 03:11, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Incomplete longevity claims[edit]

I think you're thinking of the content at Longevity myths or List of people reported to have lived beyond 130 (I don't know why 130). If the content was fleshed out (mythology, rumors, issues with inability to determine time properly) with actual secondary sources, I think the "incomplete" content could be merged into the myths article. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:40, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Malcolm Orme Little[edit]

Yes. I checked with Laffaye. "Malcolm Little, 9th Lancers."Zigzig20s (talk) 21:45, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Added Lawley as well, for which Laffaye is explicit. The one I am unsure about is Thomas Hone for now.Zigzig20s (talk) 21:57, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. If you'd like to expand Tommy Biddle, feel free to do so btw.Zigzig20s (talk) 23:40, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Are you interested in helping me out with more recent polo players like Nina Clarkin as well please? Also, it looks like Tommy Biddle's father also went by the same name, which is very confusing.Zigzig20s (talk) 17:52, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

JDR Parkway[edit]

Hi Richard. I was in discussion with several other users about the naming of the John D.

Programmability of Colossus computer[edit]

Back in November 2012 you changed the description in the lead of this article from "was at all programmable" to "was programmable". I wasn't entirely happy with that, but let it be whilst I investigated further. Colossus is described by some as programmable, by others as "semi-programmable", and some deny that it was programmable in any modern sense. The way that it was set up to perform a particular task was by operating switches and plugging on a patch panel. I therefore plan to return to the "at all" wording and hope that you won't disagree. --TedColes (talk) 09:32, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

As written I have no idea what "at all programmable" means. It just sounds like poor grammar. Can't you think of a way to phrase it where it has some meaning to someone who is not involved with the debate. Can't you just say "programmable". --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 15:36, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Please be cautious...[edit]

...when editing and commenting at Griffin. I just got my first ever ARB warning for a smiley face comment (all of 7 words) regarding another editor's mistaken comment about RS. edit. I see you received your gift from ARBCOM. Ironically, they can't imagine why we're seeing so many R-E-T-I-R-E-D banners across so many different user pages of GF editors. Well, maybe I can.

    • Actually, my mistake, you have now exceeded 3RR, so again I'd suggest you self-revert. Counting: the series of edits yesterday, and then [1], [2], and [3]. Nomoskedasticity (talk) 17:38, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not going to template you, Mr. Norton, but I think that you should not be reinserting your edits on Griffin after they've been reverted by others. In the case of the lede bit about Jekyll Island, I believe you've done this more than once now. Please self-revert. You may have engaged with this article unaware of the recent contentious history, but now that it's been pointed out to you in the wake of your edits, I hope you'll adjust your approach. At the least, I urge you to undo any of your edits which have reinserted text that others have reverted. Thanks. SPECIFICO talk 20:53, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

A comment or two

I didn't want to mess up your TP with an entirely new section, so I scooted down so I wouldn't be associated with the above activity. I believe if you engage the interaction tool and feed it names, you will be enlightened by the harmony. But I imagine you already knew that considering the length of time you've been an editor. Just wondering - do you know if members of a cabal are subject to WP:OWN individually or as a group? I guess ARBCOM serves the aggregate but individuals are sentenced separately, right? AtsmeConsult 00:31, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Richard, please don't make personal or off-topic remarks on the article talk page. You've stepped into a difficult and fraught environment. SPECIFICO talk 00:53, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Mary Margaret O'Reilly[edit]

NYT favor?[edit]

Our article on Frank R. Paul says he was born in Vienna, and seems to cite the NYT's obit for him; however, the index at PulpArtists.com says he was born in Radkersburg (and that his birth name was "Rudolph Franz Paul"). I don't have access to that NYT page; could you check if whether it specifically says "Vienna", whether it mentions his birth name, etc? Thanks. DS (talk) 13:50, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

  • My subscription just expired, but I will ask a third party to forward it to me. I will also create an entry for him at Familysearch, the Mormon genealogy website, the New York Times subscription lets me post the articles for non commercial purposes, and the website is free, but requires registration. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 15:44, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I added some information from the census, I have not found his naturalization, and it looks like he never had a passport. I think his oldest daughter still lives here in New Jersey. I will try and contact her is she still has a land line and ask for a better photo. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 18:16, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Question about black lists[edit]

I don't get the concept, or why we even have such a thing. Can you provide some insight?

  1. What causes a site to be blacklisted?
  2. Who makes that determination?
  3. Once a site is blacklisted, can it be unblacklisted, and if so, what is the process?

Thx in advance. AtsmeConsult 19:18, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Mullers[edit]

Enrique Muller was a photographer who was born in Germany(?) in 1846, and came to America. His son, Robert Enrique Muller, also known as "E. Muller", was also a photographer. In order to distinguish photographs taken by the father from photographs taken by the son (for purposes of categorization), it would be useful to know the father's date of death; might you be able to help out in this respect? Thanks in advance. DS (talk) 02:31, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Enrique Muller (born December 1846) Robert Enrique Muller (born 1881) VIAF=170021621|LCCN=no2011057407

Given their (his?) association with the US Naval Base at Annapolis, I think it's safe to say that at least one of them lived in Maryland. DS (talk) 04:30, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Found them! They lived in Brooklyn, New York and December 1846 is correct. I will load the census image to Wiki Commons. Do you plan to start an entry for them, or should I? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 04:42, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Enrique Muller and Robert Enrique Muller in the 1900 US census living in Brooklyn, New York

It looks like his son Theodore Muller was also a photographer. User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958- )/Robert Enrique Muller

Could you do the articles? I've been loading up images from Chronicling America (plus I think you have access to more data about them than I do, at this point!). DS (talk) 11:46, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Here is an interesting article I found on the father or son: User:Richard Arthur Norton (1958- )/Enrique Muller
File:Enrique Muller in The Wilkes Barre Record May 10, 1912.jpg this probably the father's images. You can add it to the category if you think I am correct. The father would have been 67 years old, so maybe the son is the daredevil. I may have found the death date of the father but I am still not sure. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 19:58, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
I read your draft for the son - would you say it's ready for mainspace? DS (talk) 19:52, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Octave Homberg (1876–1941)[edit]

Hi. Postscript to Template talk:Authority control#How many databases:

Wikidata pages are common for people who do have biographies in other-language wikipedias, such as Homberg-1876 — at French wp fr:Octave Homberg (1876-1941) and at Wikidata d:Q15969995. Re the latter, its WD page history shows that it was created automatically from the FR.wiki biography 12 months ago. Commonly such WD pages do carry useful authority identifiers, altho this one does not; maybe it's rare for those with unlabeled pagenames, [Q#########].

Provincetown Players[edit]

I was glad to see that you have added some information to the Players article. I am working on this for a class project in Theater History. I will be loading more information and citations shortly and then nominating it for review. I hope you will share your thoughts in the peer review process. EDOrt (talk) 18:12, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Bushnell[edit]

Another article I wrote as a result of the Chronicling America content is E. A. Bushnell — but the information I was able to find about him was rather limited. Do you think you might be able to do better? DS (talk) 19:23, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited E. A. Bushnell, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cuyahoga, Ohio (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hmm[edit]

Out of curiosity... the fact that you created a draft on Algernon Edward Sartoris within 24 hours of my having uploaded a photo of Mr Sartoris's wife (fiancee?)... is that a coincidence? DS (talk) 16:33, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Are you working on the Library of Congress Flickr Commons project too? I was just about to upload the same photo, I just downloaded it. I add the images that can be uploaded to my favorites on the Friday they are released, and then go back to them during the week. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 16:35, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
No, I guess it's a coincidence. I'm ransacking images from Chronicling America (which is where I got all that information about photographers and cartoonists), and if the LoC thinks this image is worth putting on their Flickr, I'd be surprised. DS (talk) 22:31, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Harry Kendall Thaw shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you get reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

Error?[edit]

Hello. I'm guessing this was an error, although I have not been able to figure out what you actually intended to do. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 09:35, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Weird. I don't remember making it, and I have no clue, so far, what my intentions were. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 14:20, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

WP;REDLINK[edit]

Hello Richard. You made this edit removing the navboxes from the sentence. I agree that the wording was somewhat misleading, but your objection, expressed in the edit summary, is actually taken care of in the following sentente where an exception is described. What the text meant, I think, before you removed the navboxes, was that in this template there should be no red links, because it is supposed to show what Wikipedia has on this subject

Differently, the following template should indeed, under the mentioned exception, contain red links, because it is used to create more articles in a series
I'm not sure what the appropriate wording of the guideline should be, to clarify this. Kraxler (talk) 14:18, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
The problem is that it excludes succession boxes as in Lloyd B. Marsh. As it reads we have to remove the redlinks from them. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 17:06, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Interesting, I wasn't aware of the rule that would exclude them from succession boxes, I always include red links there. Where red links should not be included is in infoboxes, since they are supposed to give no original info, but only to repeat key info from either the text or the succession boxes, and the red links can remain only there. That paragraph of the red links guideline is definitely badly written, and needs some working-over. Kraxler (talk) 14:39, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Another identification request?[edit]

I'm 95% sure that the Edward S. Goodnow who's mentioned here is the Goodnow who was doing loads of images for NEA-subscriber papers in 1904 (for one thing, he seems to have been Ohio-based until at least 1900). Can you find out anything else about him? For instance, his date of death? Thanks in advance. DS (talk) 17:13, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Impressive as always; once you've added in your sources for that one, I'll move it into mainspace. Here - commons:Category:Illustrations by Edward S. Goodnow is worth including, eh? DS (talk) 02:23, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
