|The Editor's Barnstar|
|I see that you make quality edits on Wikipedia articles. Here's a barn star for you! Leave me a message on my talk page if you wish to speak with me :) JustBerry (talk) 00:45, 10 July 2013 (UTC)|
Please link the flag and anthem of the Nickelodeons in Denmark, Montenegro, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Russia & Turkmenistan. Also link articles Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:28, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
- Hello, I'm happy to help with those articles. I'm not quite sure what you are looking for though. I see on the Nickelodeon (Denmark) page, that there's a line which reads "Nickelodeon signs-on at 5:00 AM with national anthem with flag, promo, block ident and programmes." Are you saying that you'd like that line to read something like "Nickelodeon signs-on at 5:00 am with the national anthem of Denmark "Der er et yndigt land" and Denmark's flag, promo, block ident and programmes." Is that what you're looking to do for Denmark's and the other country's Nickelodeon or Nick Jr. articles? Let me know what you are looking for and we can work to make those articles better. Thanks, 03:07, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
- I've also made the change on Nickelodeon (Montenegro). I note that on that article it says that the channel runs 24/7 in one place, but says 6:00 am to 6:00 pm in another. It also says "handover to RTCG from 6:00 am until 3:00 pm daily" - those times don't match with the other parts of the article. Do you know which parts are right?
- Since you're editing as an IP address, I can't be sure, but it looks like you are reasonably good at Wiki markup. Why don't you make these changes yourself? Also, it would be nice to create an account so your history of edits accumulates and you can create an identity on Wikipedia. I'll work with you on the other changes in the future. 16:50, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
- Serbia has the problem with 24/7 in one place and 3:00 am to 6:00 pm in another. For the Turkmenistan article, do you know if the Türkmenbaşy refers to Saparmurat Niyazov or something else; it links to a disambiguation page now. On Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, there was no link for MBC3, but there was one for MBC1, which I linked to MBC 1 (Middle East).
- I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other projects. You may be interested in working with Wikipedia:WikiProject Television. 22:19, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Dear SchreiberBike, Recently I observed your edits on the pages of my interest. On your user page you say that you like to collaborate to improve an article. Would you like to collaborate with me for improving articles?? (Or you have any specific interest?) Many thanks-----Bhooshan NPY (talk) 22:53, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
- @Bhooshannpy:. Your proposal is exciting. I see from your edit history that you have a lot of knowledge about India. I am interested in India and have read about the country and its history, but there is so much I don't know or understand. Why don't you propose an article about something in India and we'll see if we can work well together. Thank you, 23:16, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
- @Bhooshannpy:, Starting small, I've begun some copy editing on Namantar Shahid Smarak; please tell me if you disagree with any of my edits. I'll do some more later. I will also ask some clarification questions on Talk:Namantar Shahid Smarak. Since we will be discussing the article, that seems like the most appropriate place to bring up questions. Thanks, 17:10, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
- @SchreiberBike:, I have added all the citation translations for Namantar Shahid Smarak. Could you please take a look?
- Many Thanks.-----Bhooshan NPY (talk) 10:23, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
- @Bhooshannpy: It's done and the results can be viewed at Wikipedia:Peer review/Namantar Shahid Smarak/archive1. On the project page for peer review, they ask people who have requested review to do some reviewing in return. I'll look at doing that next. Thanks, 00:24, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
- @Bhooshannpy:, I just read over the article one more time and I can't see any problems with it. I think we've done good work together. I'm no expert though and I'm anxious to see what happens with the good article review. 19:08, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
- @JaniceSelden: Thanks for the note. I went back and looked at the article and did a pretty big copy edit on it. I used to work in healthcare and had lots of contact with DME suppliers and some loan closets. Please feel very free to disagree with any of my changes. MOS:HEAD does say "Headings should not contain questions", and I tried to give it a more encyclopedic tone. Keep on editing. 01:27, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
|Thank you so much for all your help with loan closets. Much better! JaniceSelden (talk) 22:47, 7 August 2013 (UTC)|
- Thank you. I do love cookies. 15:13, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Could you please be careful when doing hurried formatting, as here? I would rather have badly formatted article that are correct than correctly formatted ones where the dates are randomly off by a millennium. --dab (𒁳) 07:24, 26 August 2013 (UTC) Oh, I am sorry, I see you just took number vandalism in the article body at face value and perpetuated it by moving it to the infobox. That's still problematic, but not really a mistake no your part. Sorry. --dab (𒁳) 07:26, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for the note. I am careful, but I know it's inevitable that I'll make some errors along the way. I appreciate your coming back with the second note understanding why I edited as I did. 19:07, 26 August 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for the appreciation. I'll come over to Canzo and see if I can help some more. Keep up the good work. 07:16, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
1st OG F-15
Just wanted to let you know (you may already) that your identification and correction of the caption for the image of the F-15 firing the AIM-7 was correct. Although the description of the original identifies the pilot as from the 71st FS, the squadron insignia on the intake and the yellow marking band at the top of the vertical stabilizer (which has a barely legible "27th" inscription) both identify the aircraft as a 27th FS bird. Nice attention to detail.--Reedmalloy (talk) 20:11, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for the note - I'm glad I was right. The reason I noticed the text was because the F-15 was described as "... of 27st FS, 1st OG" and 27st is not a properly formatted ordinal. 27st was most likely an error for 21st or 27th and from the context of the article, it was clear that it was 27th. I wasn't aware of the markings on the plane. Keep up the good work. 00:49, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
Greetings. Because you participated in the August 2013 move request regarding this subject, you may be interested in participating in the current discussion. This notice is provided pursuant to Wikipedia:Canvassing#Appropriate notification. Cheers! bd2412 T 21:39, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
A barnstar for you!
- Thanks for the note and the star. There's about a million rules in Wikipedia and no one can know them all. I had noticed that you hadn't done any new work since I sent you that message and I was afraid I had scared you away. I'm glad to know you weren't and that you've got a good attitude. Keep up the good work. 05:01, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
India's GDP per capita...
I had not noticed this inconsistency in IMF's database prior to reverting your edit. My suggestion is that we keep the old figure ($1,491) since all other values cited in the article are from India's specific country table and not from the country comparison table you referred to. My reason for this is purely for consistency sake so as to not confuse readers. Just my two cents. DonitzLiebt (talk) 06:04, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for your note. What you say makes sense. Is there a way to tell what the ranking should be? 06:12, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
- OK with me. Because I'm curious, I also tried downloading the data file at IMF World Economic Outlook Database, October 2013 and sorted by GDP per capita. If I remove "Hong Kong SAR" as not a country, India comes out as 141st. I'm no economist so I don't know if that's a valid approach. For now, I'll go ahead and and change the 141th to 141st so that it doesn't come up on my list of problem pages. Thanks, 19:59, 25 October 2013 (UTC)
I nearly reverted you!
- @Philip Trueman: Thanks for the heads up. I just fixed it. Keep up the good work. 04:39, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the Barnstar
Thanks a lot
I gave you a heap of work with Skjærgårdsskolen, thank you so very much for taking it on. I will try to better my language and will reread your corrections, try to learn and avoid being simply sloppy. Parision work was a misspelling of parish work. Again thank you. -- 16:29, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
- It's great to hear from you. I had fun trying to figure out what was what in that interesting article. I used the original and a Google Translate version of the Norwegian Wikipedia article at no:Skjærgårdsskolen. Would it be OK if I ask you some more questions on the article's talk page? There were still many questions I had about the article. Thanks, 17:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you for your note. I appreciate your upfront statement of your relationship with Bell Pottinger Private and your clients. I will take the time to review the sources in your proposed changes to Carmen Busquets and edit the article accordingly. 18:28, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
- Another editor has already added the text you proposed. I did some pretty extensive copy editing, mostly to adhere to WP:MOS and also remove some language that struck me as WP:PEACOCK and to clarify where it said she was a co-founder of Net-a-Porter. Some articles did describe her as a co-founder, but the more reliable articles made it clear that Net-a-Porter existed before she joined the board or became an investor. I also note that you wrote the first version of the article yourself. I don't know the ins and outs of Wikipedia:Conflict of interest, but I think your approach of adding material to the talk page as a proposal is better than editing the page yourself. Let me know if you have any thoughts. 23:36, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Another one of the good guys!
I thought I'd take a look at your user page out of interest. Good do see that there are a few editors who don't work on Wikipedia in order to posture about their talents and credentials. Liking Wikipedia and wanting to make it better are the ultimate objectives! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 06:06, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you. Keep up the good work. 06:14, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for reading my article. I have not submitted this article at the time of writing. I am relatively new to Wikipedia and I understand you have read my document and made some changes. I wish to disagree with the suggestions. 1. The word Constables in this context need to have a capital C. It refers to the rank in the police force, as does Sergeant. These are always capitalized when referred to in an isolation. 2. Chief Constable also requires capitals on the first letter. This does refer to the rank, as before, but Chief Constable is a very high rank and the capitals reflect this. You would not, for instance, call Montgomery a field marshall but a Field Marshall. 3. I have been told by a previous reviewer not to write 6th in my article, but 6. Ordinals are not required-I suppose.
Several Wiki's are reviewing Frank Richardson as I write it, and alterations/suggestions have resulted. This helps me. I appreciate this but any changes have to be correct. TimothyWF (talk) 17:42, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for your note. I assume you are talking about the article at Frank Richardson (policeman). That article was in the encyclopedia earlier today when I edited it, and based on this edit, it has been since early August, so I'm not sure what you mean by it not being submitted yet.
- Capitalization in Wikipedia is described at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Capital letters. The Wikipedia:Manual of Style is the style guide for articles in the encyclopedia and it has many sub-parts (there are a lot of rules and it's hard to know them all). The MoS says "most capitalization is for proper names or for acronyms", so the job titles you mentioned above would not be capitalized. Importance of a position is not the basis for capitalization, so indeed we would call Montgomery a field marshal, not a Field Marshal. If the title is being used as part of a name, it would be capitalized as in Field Marshal Montgomery though, just as we would refer to the lowest rank soldier as Private Jones.
- If an earlier reviewer suggested "6 Century" instead of "6th century", I think they were wrong. The instructions on how to refer to centuries are at WP:CENTURY and distributed in other parts of the MoS.
- The article is looking good and seems to be a real contribution to the encyclopedia. I'd be happy to provide further help if you'd like. 18:11, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
- Article for Creation, Frank Richardson (policeman)
- Hello SchreiberBike, Thank you for your reply, I acknowledge your correct comments and help. I would like to take you up on your kind offer to provide further help, if I may. I have added some photographs yesterday and today and the results in 'my edit' page do not appear to be too correct to me. I suspect I have made an elementary error somewhere. Could I ask you to look at my Read page Gallery and add any comments ? Subject to your comments/alterations I would like to Submit this article for creation for Review, but I have suddenly realized I haven't got a SUBMIT button to press for the Article for Creation which I had on my previous article. Am I missing something, apart from a visual block, that is ?
- TimothyWF (talk) 17:18, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
- Hi @TimothyWF:, Working on Wikipedia is complicated, but most of the people are friendly and willing to help. I think I've got the gallery in Frank Richardson (policeman) looking right. It's showing the four pictures now. The main difference between what you had and what I came up with is that in a gallery, the brackets ("[[" and "]]") aren't required.
- Your work on the article is already in the regular part of Wikipedia and has been for a couple of months. After articles are part of the encyclopedia, anyone can edit them and many people continue to make them better. I'll take another look at the article soon and try to do some copy editing. If I have any questions or suggestions about the article, I'll bring them up at Talk:Frank Richardson (policeman), but feel free to ask me any questions here. Keep up the good work. 18:27, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
- Hello SchreiberBike, I can't get over how quickly you reply !! Anyhow, thank you for you comments and information. I had no idea the Article for Creation was in fact created as I haven't submitted it yet but obviously it had and I am delighted. It probably explains why I was getting comments and alterations as I progressed writing the article which I hadn't had on a previous one. I am going to add the two sons Ernest Frank Richardson and Alfred Herbert Richardson into and at the end as links. You are quite correct over Miss Peto, it is Geogiana. Very grateful for you help, and many thanks.
- it has been a great confidence booster to me.
- TimothyWF (talk) 19:54, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
- @TimothyWF:, I'm going through the article little by little and doing some copy editing. I'm changing things so they read better to my ear. I've also taken out or summarized some things which don't seem to me to be important enough to be in the article. You are completely free to disagree with me on any changes I make. I also worry that I'm using American English phrases which sound natural to me for an article which very much should use British English. Do keep on editing the article yourself too. Thanks, 18:31, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. I would just say that I've copied the basis of an article from "Swimming at the 2011 Pan American Games" series, believing that was all right with the grammar, since my English is not perfect. Sorry for any inconvenience. Rauzaruku (talk) 22:37, 13 November 2013 (UTC)
- @Rauzaruku: Both the English language and Wikipedia rules are very difficult to learn. Keep up the good work. 03:44, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
I have decided to put on a mini-contest within the November 2013 monthly disambiguation contest, on Saturday, November 23 (UTC). I will personally give a $20 Amazon.com gift card to the disambiguator who fixes the most links on that server-day (see the project page for details on scoring points). Since we are not geared up to do an automated count for that day, at 00:00, 23 November 2013 (UTC) (which is 7:00 PM on November 22, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the project page leaderboard. I will presume that anyone who is not already listed on the leaderboard has precisely nine edits. At 01:00, 24 November 2013 (UTC) (8:00 PM on November 23, EST), I'll take a screenshot of the leaderboard at that time (the extra hour is to give the board time to update), and I will determine from that who our winner is. I will credit links fixed by turning a WP:DABCONCEPT page into an article, but you'll have to let me know me that you did so. Here's to a fun contest. Note that according to the Daily Disambig, we currently have under 256,000 disambiguation links to be fixed. If everyone in the disambiguation link fixers category were to fix 500 links, we would have them all done - so aim high! Cheers! bd2412 T 02:30, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

A barnstar for your collection

- Thank you for the recognition. I remember the PC-XT well. I once worked on a project on one for so long, staring into that green screen, that my vision had an orange halo until I went to sleep. Keep up the good work. 02:01, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
- Ah, the old monochromes and their halos... I mostly worked with Color Graphics Adapters, which allowed me to use either a monochrome or a CRT color monitor, or even both (showing the same screen differently.) Then, there was the Hercules Graphics Card, which gave monochromes some interesting properties instead of colors, like bold, underline and strike-through, with better resolution. Some programs were actually made to remind people to take a break to avoid halos and the like, though I mostly found them too annoying to use, myself. Thanks for recognizing my name. I'm glad to recognize your well-done edits. Have a good day! —PC-XT+ 07:58, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
