Gainsborough's Thomas Linley the elder is waiting for you to be nominated....

Tikuko, Crisco 1492 and Yunshui are probably feeling just as me, that you should't - please don't leave. Hafspajen (talk) 10:31, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

Amen to that. I don't have any pretty pictures to offer as persuasion, but the 'pedia will be a worse place without you. Yunshui  11:32, 8 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Also, if you like architecture... I got a new tool, like Diliff has, so hopefully I can take stunning interior shots of churches and other houses of worship as well. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 21:19, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I've just bought a magnificent book on the architecture of Casablanca- Casablanca: Colonial Myths & Architectural Ventures. Got no interest in the architecture of Casablanca- it's just a really nice book Face-smile.svg which shows the worth of good architectural photos.

  • Joining in the choir, can't give the sapphire you already have, but a bit of Geh aus, mein Herz, und suche Freud, about seeking joy when no joy is in sight, - promised myself to start that today, more on my talk, - well I see it was started but there will be more,— Preceding unsigned comment added by Gerda Arendt (talkcontribs)

  • Well, I dunno what this is all about. I'm guessing that it's probably similar to what happened to me: I let the behavior of one horrible, abusive, oppressive, hostile, uncivil, smug, contentious, sarcastic, antagonistic user drive me away for nine weeks. We don't want the horrible people to win. Obviously, if we let the horrible people drive away good people, then the few good people remaining are left to deal with a high percentage of the horrible people. Oh, I forgot to mention, you're one of the very good people. So, by all means, take a break from the madness, and when you're ready to return, it will make lots of other good people very happy. Let's hope it doesn't take nine weeks. And if I'm completely wrong about what's going on, well, then, "never mind". In any case, while you're gone, you'll be greatly missed, and your return will be greatly appreciated. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 03:23, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

But Phil, if you want to add it co-nom, you have to add that first. Otherwise someone may ask - what do you mean by that - adding yourself like this as a co-nom uninvited? Hafspajen (talk) 12:30, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

[1]. Sorry, I meant - I can't correct YOUR entry. It should say co-nom on both... both my entry and yours. Hafspajen (talk) 12:43, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Breakfast time... Just how did I managed this one on talk: yhis article was edited to contain a total or partial translation of Frukostdags from the Sami Wikipedia? Hafspajen (talk) 13:20, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

What's with that turban today?
  • Hmm ... I don't know - was it a translation? Shouldn't it have been a move into main space instead of a copy/paste? You've done really well with the article though! SagaciousPhil - Chat 13:33, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Klappy mergerd it. He might fix the Sami problem too. Hafspajen (talk) 13:59, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
And he edits like times a year. Hafspajen (talk) 15:28, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I DON*t want to call it Frukost-time. Or Frukostdags - am not overly happy for foreign titles. Would Breakfast time (painting) do? Hafspajen (talk) 15:40, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Do we need to rename both? Why do we pay Drmies if he doesn't help us isn such terrible dilemmas? Hafspajen (talk) 15:42, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I think perhaps Breakfast time (painting) would work. As for the image, I don't know anything about the different uploads etc etc and it would probably need to be fixed over at Commons [*/shudder] - if Crisco had time, perhaps he would be able to become "Mr Fixit" for us? SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:47, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Don't ask me. After Tenedos I gave up on names. I'm still on a half-dozen shitlists over that one, I'm sure. Drmies (talk) 15:51, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Commons policy does not require file titles to be in English. We've had a kerfuffle here before, with the Girls' Generation image. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 15:50, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
We were talking of article titles. Breakfast Time and Breakfast time . FIXED. Movedit to Breakfast time (painting). Hafspajen (talk) 16:28, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
  • The problem with the file is not the file naming. The problem is that File:Hanna Pauli - Frukostdags.JPG doesn't have the correct source. It is not a photo. It is a cropped Google file but it say it is a photo... I mean it is NOT the wrong file, but the wrong source. The guy overwrote the original photo with a cropped version of the google file.

Without mentioning it in the section =source. on the file data. If that can be fixed than the file is fine. Hafspajen (talk) 18:59, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Arbitration case request declined[edit]

You were named in a case request Infobox_nationality_of_people_from_the_UK which was declined by the Arbitration Committee. The committee concluded that one issue in the case was content, which is outside the remit of the committee, and the remaining behavioral issues should be handled by the usual processes.

FPC Hat[edit]

I appreciate your comment and the hat (it was getting out of control), but you also hatted(?) my oppose on grounds of an incomplete scope...--Godot13 (talk) 16:32, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Whoops, sorry about that Godot, it was completely unintentional, I just skimmed trying to check there hadn't been votes among that section but missed it. I'm not sure of the best way to sort it - what about if I copy your comment to outside of the hatted section? Would that be okay with you? Or perhaps Crisco can suggest something? SagaciousPhil - Chat 16:39, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I think copying the oppose to the area outside the hat would work. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 17:22, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
that works for me. Many thanks.--Godot13 (talk) 19:34, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Yesterday I added this twice and also remove it twice. In the same monent I did it I realized that maybe this project is nor right for me any more, after all.

Hafs, what's wrong? Why have your removed the fish FP nomination twice? That DYK nomination does look like a lengthy discussion but I haven't read it all (or the article). You're always so cheery and keep us all upbeat ... SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:27, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, ... I feelt discouraged somehow. Hafspajen (talk) 15:31, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Don't be discouraged - I think you should go ahead and do the FP nomination for the Koi fish (you know images better than most of us!); as to the DYK, I still haven't read it all but it looks as if the icons are in place for a fresh review to be done on it, so why not wait and see what comments a different reviewer makes? SagaciousPhil - Chat 15:39, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I don't know. Maybe is better I stay away from that page a while. I don't really know what use that would be. Hafspajen (talk) 14:08, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • If you're having trouble with DYK, I'd avoid it for now. FPC is a different process. You could also edit articles, without any of those processes in mind. File:Paris bordone 016.jpg is ready for the taking, if you want. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 20:19, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
That was a rather mystical message. Phil, when did we talked about Bordone? Hafspajen (talk) 20:18, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • That was Crisco. Oops. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 20:19, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
OH, it was YOU! Was a bit confused, we mostly were talking about Phil's image, the breakfast. I like Bordone but I am not a big frame lover, I have to admit. Wish I could crop it. Hafspajen (talk) 20:35, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Well, you can have any of them up there. (And congrats on that set, BTW) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 20:40, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks. You mean you cue? And the Fairies I did? Also I rather like Mr and Mrs Andrews... If I am allowed to pic any of those. Hafspajen (talk) 20:41, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
