Re:DYK[edit]

Many thanks, SL93. I just made a correction. Best, --KoberTalk 03:36, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that. I'm not sure how I put the wrong thing. SL93 (talk) 03:39, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh, now I remember. I had two articles open at the same time and pasted the wrong name. SL93 (talk) 03:42, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

how to navigate your subpages?[edit]

This might be a stupid question, but I don't see a way to find your subpages. — Preceding unsigned comment added by M2spring (talkcontribs) 03:49, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

That's not a stupid question. You can go to User talk:SL93/Archive 1 with any number till 6 where the 1 is at. SL93 (talk) 03:51, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
I think that you would be happy to know that I looked over the references for your AfC submission again and approved it. You can find it at Brutal Verschimmelt. SL93 (talk) 03:56, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Better source request for File:My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem.jpg[edit]

Thanks for your upload to Wikipedia:

You provided a source, but it is difficult for other users to examine the copyright status of the image because the source is incomplete. Please consider clarifying the exact source so that the copyright status may be checked more easily. It is best to specify the exact Web page where you found the image, rather than only giving the source domain or the URL of the image file itself. Please update the image description with a URL that will be more helpful to other users in determining the copyright status.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source in a complete manner. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page or me at my talk page. Thank you. Message delivered by Theo's Little Bot (opt-out) 21:00, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

re:Your comment[edit]

Hi SL93. Partly a misunderstanding on my part of what you meant in your comment, partly a result of the constant edit conflicts over there. I'm in full agreement with your statement above that which I made. The quotations were from Blofeld's "DYK guidelines". It's those that I find shocking. Sorry for the confusion. Manxruler (talk) 21:25, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

That's fine. I assumed that you didn't mean it which is why I removed my comment. SL93 (talk) 21:25, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your understanding. I did attempt to apologize over there about 30 seconds after saving that edit, but it got lost in a maze of edit conflicts. Manxruler (talk) 21:32, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Khorashan of Kartli[edit]

Dear SL93, I would like to ask for your patience, I'm going to check the article this afternoon, just now there's dawn here, in Hungary, thus I'll go to sleep. :) "Step 2: direct link to the List of Georgian consorts", means that I modificated the link from queen consort to the more specific List of Georgian consorts article. There is nothing any kind of 'holding up'. Greetings, --Norden1990 (talk) 00:59, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm patient, but I just didn't know what you meant and tried to get clarification. SL93 (talk) 01:00, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
So far only I fixed the hook (repetition 'the the', and link to other page). Anyway the article seems to be okay, at first sight. --Norden1990 (talk) 01:05, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

A7 Criteria[edit]

Happy to help with Template:Did you know nominations/Black Hawk County Soldiers Memorial Hall. I did take some liberty in revising your submission. Please do let me know if you disagree with any of my changes. Cbl62 (talk) 16:59, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

It's fine. Wikipedia is a collaborative project and none of what you wrote is inaccurate. SL93 (talk) 17:02, 20 July 2013 (UTC)
Indeed, but I did want to avoid stepping on toes, though. We may have gotten off on the wrong foot with your prior DYK.

Thanks! You've not cited its National Register nomination form at all; were you aware of it? Your citation is Cross, Thomas. National Register of Historic Places Inventory/Nomination: Gene Stratton Porter Cabin. National Park Service, [page number], n.d. Nyttend (talk) 01:09, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
I was confused about how to search the website. SL93 (talk) 01:10, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
If you mean the National Park Service website, that doesn't matter: they host very few Indiana nomination forms. This came from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, which hosts almost 100% of the state's forms; if you have any interest in writing other National Register articles for Indiana, I can explain how to use the site.

Press coverage of Armenian Genocide DYK[edit]

Hello SL93,

I'm just curious why the picture for the DYK didn't go up in the prep area? Proudbolsahye (talk) 05:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

A picture being requested for a hook does not guarantee that the picture will be used. With how many hooks that have pictures and how many reviewed articles there are at each given time, it would be impossible to update the prep areas if every picture was added. There is only one picture slot in each prep area. I can't fix the issue by adding hooks in the prep areas randomly. Each prep area needs fair representation of a topic compared to other topics. SL93 (talk) 05:54, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I understand that totally believe me. I respect prep regardless. I sincerely wanted to know...because I tried cropping it and maybe the crop was bad or something. It was just something I was thinking about repeatedly :) Proudbolsahye (talk) 05:58, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I would like all good pictures to be added, but that would mean even more reviews happening along with less people requesting pictures. The picture that you used is fine. SL93 (talk) 06:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you SL93. Proudbolsahye (talk) 06:05, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

Thuppakki[edit]

I see u started the GA review for it without notifying me (the nominator). Can we pls resume it now that I'm back? ---- Kailash29792 (talk) 03:09, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

The GA bot was supposed to notify you. I failed it because there are many issues with sentence structure. A Good Article review is not meant to be a major overhaul with copy edits. SL93 (talk) 03:12, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
To be more precise, I am a reviewer, not a copy editor. Pointing out every single sentence, out of the many sentences, that needs to be fixed is no different from me copy editing the entire article. SL93 (talk) 03:35, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
Quality of the article is not what I am talking about. Starting the review without informing me was not good, that's what I mean. No GA bot notified me at all. Additionally, I thought that other than the style of sentences, everything else was fine in the article. Kailash29792 (talk) 04:15, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
The GA bot didn't notify you, but it was supposed to. The article needs a major copy edit from top to bottom, which is why I suggested for you to get help from someone who is part of the league of copy editors. SL93 (talk) 06:03, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
First, the bot has always notified Good Article nominators and has did so for a long time, so you can't fault me for that. Second, I don't know if you are mad at me for failing the article, but you shouldn't be if you are. A Good Article reviewer does not have to point out all of the prose problems when the article needs a major copy edit from top to bottom. It is at least expected for every part of the criteria to, at the very least, be close to passing. In this article's case, the writing in the article is not close to passing. SL93 (talk) 06:18, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

I will complete the copy edit for you. Even though reviewers cannot edit an article significantly during the review, a copy edit should be fine. It isn't rare for reviewers to quick-fail nominations based on the article needing a major copy-edit, but I will take care of it. SL93 (talk) 06:23, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Gao Hucheng[edit]

Just so that you, the article Knut Arild Hareide is a good article. Now allow me to respond to your queries: 1. The article Knut Arild Hareide does not mention this information either. 2. In fact, the article Knut Arild Hareide does not include any information/specificity from birth until tertiary school. This provides answers until inquiry #5. 3. See above 4. Likewise 5. I am not exactly sure what you mean by this question. If you are asking what did he study alongside French, I believe he singularly studied French. 6. This I do not know. However, in the article Knut Arild Hareide, no raison d'etre for education is presented. 7. A new wikilink has been added to the article. 8. He was deputy general manager. What more do you want to know? I will see if I can provide an answer. In the article Knut Arild Hareide, no details of his time as "board member of the national student union 1993–1994" are presented, beyond the entry information presented in the text. 9. He earned his doctorate by completing the course. I do not exactly understand what you are asking. 10. He still is a member, so everything political he has done insofar, and that he will in the future as a member of the CPC is my answer. 11. Please see query #8.

I do not see this article as suffering from an "extreme lack of information". In fact, its breadth parallels that of a recognized good article, Knut Arild Hareide. Could you re-asses your review position, as I feel as if I will repeating the nomination process. Regards, QatarStarsLeague (talk) 23:33, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

I will not reopen the nomination, but you are free to contest it at Wikipedia:Good article reassessment to get other opinions. That article is not similar to this one. It is not only longer, but it actually says what he did as part of politics and it actually goes into detail about all of his positions. SL93 (talk) 23:36, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Also, Knut Arild Hareide has 9,872 characters of prose, compared to Gao Hucheng which has 2,371 characters of prose. SL93 (talk) 23:49, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Svalbard Rocket Range has less than 2400 characters of readable prose. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 01:04, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
You can't compare Good Articles about different topics. That is about a launch site. Every Good Article topic needs their own type of information. SL93 (talk) 01:14, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
I am comparing brevity. A Good Article is upheld to the same criterion as any other. QatarStarsLeague (talk) 16:43, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
As I said before, I will not reopen the nomination and you are free to contest it. You are forgetting the criterion "broad in its coverage". Simply saying what political party he is part of and what his positions are is not enough. As shown in your first example, that article does go into detail about those things. The other article is about a launch site. My point is that every topic needs their own type of coverage. For example, a film Good Article needs information about the plot, releases, reception, production, etc. SL93 (talk) 17:00, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of One Day at Horrorland[edit]

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know I am glad to be reviewing the article One Day at Horrorland you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period.

Pricasso DYK[edit]

I don't think it was appropriate to close that, especially if you read my last comment. As I noted there, I had initiated an RfC to try and resolve the main sticking point with the article. The reason for nothing going on with the nom is because I was waiting for the outcome. The RfC period just ended today, without a clear consensus for or against the Commons link. Obviously, that means the default choice is to keep it out. It may be a prolonged period of discussion, but we've had longer DYK discussions. Your point about it being rejected is not entirely valid. One of those rejecting it was an involved editor who insisted, without sufficient evidence, that the subject should be characterized as a porn star rather than an artist. Another cited a POV tag that is no longer on the article. Finally, there was a claim from an IP that was essentially disregarding WP:NOTCENSORED. In contrast, three editors actually approved the article during that time and three others raised reasonable concerns that could or have been addressed (two objected to the edit-warring, which was over the link that the RfC discussed). Only the last comment by Blue Moonset covered issues that would be present issues, I think. Could you please re-open the discussion?--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 21:50, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

I think that it was entirely appropriate for me to close that. I posted my closure on the DYK talk page for everyone to view, but no one has raised any concerns except yourself. For that reason, I especially think that my closure was not incorrect. SL93 (talk) 21:53, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Before I even consider opening the discussion, were any of BlueMoonset's concerns addressed? He posted there a while back and if those were not addressed, there is no indication that they will ever be addressed. Will you address them yourself? If not, I see no reason to re-open the nomination. SL93 (talk) 22:00, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
As I stated in the comment I made at the nomination page when initiating the RfC, my intention has been to address those concerns myself when the RfC concluded.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 22:40, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
I will re-open the nomination, but I still disagree with your assertion that my close was inappropriate. No one else had an issue with it after I closed it two days ago. SL93 (talk) 22:43, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I took a while, but I was actually addressing it right as you closed the damn thing again. Indeed, you are not even correct to say I was not editing the article as I had edited it during that three-day period.--The Devil's Advocate tlk. cntrb. 04:52, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/List of awards and nominations received by K. Balachander[edit]

Any reason for not promoting this nom with the image? Vensatry (Ping me) 08:10, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Just because someone requests an image does not mean that it will for sure be promoted. Editors who update the prep areas need to have a mix of subjects in each prep area and to do that, some images need to be left out if there is a lack of reviewed nominations. No one who requests an image is entitled to that image being promoted. SL93 (talk) 16:46, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

inre: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Call of the Wild (2007 film)[edit]

Unfortunately the article was already too long for me to give it a 5x expansion for a DYK, but I think my google-fu kicked in nicely. More to do yes, and while overshadowed by the Sean Penn film, this one has received analysis and commentary and comparisons in enough multiple independent sources so as to meet WP:NF. Best regards, Schmidt, Michael Q. 03:55, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Promotion of Hollinwell incident DYK[edit]

Thanks for your promotion of the Hollinwell incident DYK. One quick question - is there are reason that you decided to promote it now rather than wait for the 24 August? I'm assuming that the request to do so wasn't clear enough and that the reviewer forgot to move it to the special occasion holding area. violet/riga [talk] 00:42, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

The reviewer should have moved it to the special holding area. I have un-promoted it and will move it myself. SL93 (talk) 00:49, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
thanks for that - very quick response and much appreciated. violet/riga [talk] 00:55, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:A Night in Terror Tower.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:A Night in Terror Tower.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box.
