Hey Rosie, I've started an ambitious project to cover the Louvre displays! Obviously we can't mention 380,000 objects but we could certainly have an article for each department and even for each room of each one and highlight the most notable artifacts of each one. I envisage a nav box with departments in bold down the side and numbers piped of the rooms and an article on each one. Plenty of images Really I think the list of notable artifacts needs to be ordered by room with a brief summary and sub articles on each room in more detail.♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:09, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Probably a good place to start is just articles on each of the departments with a list summary. Feel free to add images from room 16-30 from here to the gallery. I've reached room 15! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:33, 2 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah it would need a LOT of work to write a decent article by room and individually and for each department! I think I'll leave it at that now, gradually the other departments ought to be at least started with lists highlighting the main features though. The potential though is huge!♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:12, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
Aww, mummify the cat LOL!!♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:52, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
Cannot thank you enough
|Mind the Gap Award|
|Rosiestep, your excellent articles on historical women and your consistent efforts to bring them to the main page via Did you know.. continue to impress me. By improving the breadth of our content and the visibility of women on the main page, you are making a noticeable impact on the gender gap. Thank you for inspiring me and keep up the great work! gobonobo + c 06:59, 5 August 2014 (UTC)|

So annoying having to log into a different account in the commons for images! I forgot to log out and sign in as me again! Great article choice, I reckon with a bit of work we might be able to glean enough for GA. Up for it?♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:45, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
If you can find enough scraps go ahead and nom Michael Zearott for DYK if you like with a hook about Frank Zappa or something. Aarhus International Jazz Festival already has enough, George Hummel (business manager) needs a tad more for DYK.
Thanks. Isn't Hummel long enough yet? Yes by all means he can add the bit about an opera but I think it would pass GA. Most of the info about her is duplicated and I think it's pretty comprehensive.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:54, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
You may wish to add more to Cahuenga Boulevard and nom, I finished up to page 3 of google books. As usual turned up some interesting links, particularly The Owl Drug Company see this. Very interesting early Hollywood and Los Angeles history and defunct former buildings. I wouldn't mind some books on it at some point.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:06, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
RFC at Wikipedia for page protection
Last call for opinions on RFC at Wikipedia page for page protection extension. User:Pundit is in support of increasing gender equality at Wikipedia and another user is opposed to User:Pundit's efforts. RFC ends on the 14th. LawrencePrincipe (talk) 19:43, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
You've made my day
Thoughts are indeed miraculous. After I logged out last night I intensively thought about asking you to copy edit Jovan Šević. After some thinking I gave it up. At exactly the same time you actually did copy edit this article.
@Antidiskriminator: Yes, thoughts are. And you are most welcome. Let me tell you how I found Jovan Šević. I had just nomed 2 other articles at DYK and was looking for something to QPQ (which I never did get around to doing) when I came across Jovan's article. When I clicked the wl, and read the article, I decided to work on it and voilà. For sure, if you ever want an extra set of hands on an article for c/e and/or etc., just let me know. If I'm busy, or if the article isn't my 'cup of tea', I won't be bashful to say so. :) Cheers, --Rosiestep (talk) 14:03, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
18:49, 16 August 2014 (UTC)Thank you for your invitation. I would love help with my first article on Amanda Eliasch. A man started it and then I am helping him get it right. In the process learning much about Wikipedia and would love to contribute more. It is very enjoyable. I have made some errors and hopefully I will sort them out over the next few days. If you can give me any pointers, please feel free. If I can help you with anything I would be delighted.AERATBAG (talk) 18:49, 16 August 2014 (UTC) AERATBAG

Should be enough now!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:00, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Can you add a bit to A Dog's Love, expand the lede a bit or something and nom? Try to watch the film on the Thanhauser website, it's a beautiful 11 minute film, so cute!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:48, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah it's one of those very poorly known gems I keep finding! Will look at your article later.♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:04, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Cultural Anthropology - Lascaux - Rosiestep
Rosiestep: Why have you invited us to Teahouse? May we send you an article or link to one of our projects that may be of interest to you?
There is a deep connection between the Sculptured Fused Glass Wall of NSUC and the Magdalenian Caves of Lascaux.
Engravings and paintings throughout history convey an astonishing and most powerful reminder of how inter-dependent and inter-connected we humans are with one another, with living creatures, and our mother Earth. We all share the responsibility and accountability to preserve and protect that which is precious and priceless about our human existence upon our planet and in the Universe.
It is known that men and women in pre-historic times and even up through early Minoan civilizations lived together in peace and harmony with Nature. They built ... and planted ... and cultivated their lives ... celebrating as well as worshipping the natural cyclical rhythms of Nature and the nurturing powers of the Universe. Their shelters ... their Built Environments ... as ours, are only expressions of their beliefs, history and technology.
From ancients shall we learn; not new ways, but ways all too commonly forgotten. They more often cast their eyes upward to a worshipped sun, and learned that the lights of the sky could, in many ways, enhance their lives. They felt, perhaps, a greater kinship with their surroundings. As such, they built. Send us an email that might be more convenient for you. When that you have participated in recognized content, what does that mean as your topics of interest are quite broad?
Archaeology Architecture Biographies, rarely BLPs (Women's biography redlinks) Evolutionary psychology, especially the work of Stephen Pinker Fiction, literature, movies, especially science fiction Geography, especially slands and island people GLAM (in another life, when there are more than 24 hours in a day, I'll be a librarian and a museumist) Languages, especially those that are endangered Native peoples
Rosiestep: Thanks for the info. Still interested in your comments .
Hope this link may be of interest to you.
- from the archives of NSUC
For transparency, let's keep Wikipedia conversation at Wikipedia. Regarding the dirsmithgroup url, I see that @Oiyarbepsy: has communicated with you on this subject and I have no further comments to add. --Rosiestep (talk) 04:09, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure - I need to see the schedule, but this weekend (especially tomorrow night and Friday) should mesh with me better than usual. Let me look into it and get back to you shortly. Would you be free tomorrow night? That's when works best for me. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:17, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
- Great, thanks. I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring, save that I think I'll be stuck in the suburbs for most of the day, but we shall see. Just shoot me an e-mail at the address I've got linked - I'm not sure I'll be in a position to keep checking my talkpage, but e-mail I'll have in hand pretty much all day. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 13:11, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
