Harry Eytinge[edit]

Hello. Thanks for the help with Harry Eytinge and Louis Victor Eytinge. The reason I named Harry Eytinge as "Harry Eytinge (Actor 1822-1900)" was that there was a silent movie actor named Harry Eytinge who was born some time later in 1862 and I may write his bio if I can find enough information. No problem though, just thought I would let you know.

Proposed deletion of Conspiracy of Silence (Church persecutions)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Conspiracy of Silence (Church persecutions) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Pius XI appears to have used this ordinary phrase just once in this context. It's noted in his biography and in the entry for the encyclical Divini redemptoris. It is otherwise of insufficient note to justify its own WP entry.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

About your (non)participation in the January 2012 SOPA vote[edit]

Hi. I am Piotr Konieczny (User:Piotrus), you may know me as an active content creator (see my userpage), but I am also a professional researcher of Wikipedia. Recently I published a paper (downloadable here) on reasons editors participated in Wikipedia's biggest vote to date (January 2012 WP:SOPA). I am now developing a supplementary paper, which analyzes why many editors did not take part in that vote. Which is where you come in :) You are a highly active Wikipedian (in fact, the third most active - color me impressed!), and you were active back during the January 2012 discussion/voting for the SOPA, yet you did not chose to participate in said vote. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me why was that so? For your convenience, I prepared a short survey at meta, which should not take more than a minute of your time. I would dearly appreciate you taking this minute; not only as a Wikipedia researcher but as a fellow content creator and concerned member of the community (I believe your answers may help us eventually improve our policies and thus, the project's governance). PS. If you chose to reply here (on your userpage), please WP:ECHO me. Thank you! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 19:15, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Well, you are right. Btw, I haven't seen you edit any Polish-related articles recently, when will you swing by again? And thank you for your answer, I think there's one in the survey that's applicable for it. Cheers, --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 12:19, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikimedia DC celebrates Black History Month, and more![edit]

Hello again!

Not even a week ago I sent out a message talking about upcoming events in DC. Guess what? There are more events coming up in February.

First, as a reminder, there is a WikiSalon on February 11 (RSVP here or just show up) and Wiki Loves Small Museums at the Small Museum Association Conference on February 15 (more information here).

Now, I am very pleased to announce:

There is going to be a lot going on, and I hope you can come to some of the events!

If you have any questions or need any special accommodations, please let me know.


Regards,

Reflinks bug[edit]

Thank you for tirelessly filling out references at Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa with your User:Zhaofeng Li/Reflinks software. However, this edit and this edit left unintended references at the end of the article (assuming there is no mysterious reason to add references for a category). Later edits turned them into red cite errors. So I removed the references, and you and/or User:Zhaofeng Li should fix the bug in the software if it's likely to reoccur.

And by the way, the "To leave me a new message you may click here." at the top of the page doesn't work; it says "Internal error [96683b3d] 2015-02-08 18:56:07: Fatal exception of type Scribunto_LuaInterpreterNotFoundError". Art LaPella (talk) 19:09, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

Category 20th-century lawyers[edit]

I think this category is undefining, and will eventually be bloated beyond recognition. Most politicians are also lawyers. There must be a hundred thousand people with bios here qualifying for this one. Categories should only be added if they are "defining" (with a few exceptions), most of those politicians added by you recently have never been known/notable/famous for their legal practice, but rather as politicians. I'm thinking about proposing this category for deletion. Kraxler (talk) 12:59, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

I had some of the same thoughts myself the other day, when I began the categorizing spree. I take your point, and am not sure but that I don't feel something of the same way myself. Having said that, I do think the category has about as much validity as, say, Category:20th-century musicians or Category:20th-century painters. And it can be winnowed down by nationality, I shouldn't wonder. Which I might do one of these days.
So I'm sort of in the middle on the subject, erring in favor of the category, basically. But I won't say that I couldn't be convinced otherwise at some point. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 17:54, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
To be a musician, or a painter, is much more definite and/or defining (a requirement to add categories), than being a lawyer. Almost all lawyers I've written about (several hundred) were not known for their legal work. 20th century lawyer has as much validity as 20th-century milk drinker or 20th-century beach vacationer. "20th-century lawyer" is currently being added (by you, inter alia) at all people who are already in the following categories: disbarred lawyers, New York Court of Appeals judges, New York Supreme Court Justices, New York state court judges, County district attorneys in New York, etc., and lawyers (by profession) who were notable as New York State Senators, Members of the New York State Assembly, etc. In the end it will become a terrible unhelpful hold-all. 20th-century painters has already almost a thousand pages, plus subcategories by country. I expect 20th-century lawyer to go into 50,000 pages easily, if anybody can find the time to waste on it. Kraxler (talk) 18:17, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Kraxler here. You should only be categorizing a person as a lawyer if they are notable as a lawyer - not people who were a non-notable as a lawyer before becoming a politician or people who are famous as a sportsperson (example) and later became a lawyer. Many articles mention many jobs (e.g. "lifeguard, paper carrier, grocery clerk, forest firefighter, and golf caddy"), but adding a category tag for any job that a person has ever done isn't appropriate - it just creates category clutter on articles, watchlist noise and makes categories less useful for navigation. DexDor (talk) 19:10, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
See, I don't have a problem with it as a defining category. For a politician, say...he may not have been notable as a lawyer, but if it was a substantial part of his career then I'm in favor of adding lawyer-based categories to his article. (Take my state delegate, for instance - he's not likely to be remembered as a lawyer, but it is his job, it's what he does, and it defines him as much as being politics does. To me, at any rate.)
Where I do have a problem, and where I'm open to conviction, is the necessity of some of those lawyer-based categories in the first place. "20th-century lawyers" falls into that category, for me...what difference does it make that a lawyer worked during the 20th-century? I can maybe see the argument for people in artistic fields. I'm not sure it's a necessity for the law.
If any of this makes any sense? I don't frequently engage in policy discussions here because I know what I mean when I say it, but I'm not convinced I can articulate it well enough for anyone else when I say it. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:34, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
We should categorize based on what makes the person notable for inclusion in an encyclopedia. E.g. Harold Brainsby may have spent decades working as a lawyer, he may have been a devoted husband and father, he may have been a regular church-goer or keen gardener ... to him (and his family) those may have been the things that defined him, but we're writing an enclopedia and he's in the encyclopedia because of what he did as a sportsman. DexDor (talk) 20:53, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps. Personally, I don't agree, in that I think professional life and personal life are generally two different matters. So if he spent extensive time as a lawyer, I think it should be noted. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 21:56, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
I'd like to quote from Wikipedia:Categorization of people#N: "For example, a film actor who holds a law degree should be categorized as a film actor, but not as a lawyer unless his or her legal career was notable in its own right and/or relevant to his acting career. Many people had assorted jobs before taking the one that made them notable; those other jobs should not be categorized. Now substitute politician for actor, and there we are, concerning politicians.
I'd like to mention also Wikipedia:Overcategorization#Mostly overlapping categories: "If two or more categories have a large overlap (e.g. because many athletes participate in multiple all-star games, and religious leadership does not radically change from year to year), it is generally better to merge the subjects to a single category, and create lists to detail the multiple instances." In the case of judges or district attorneys there would be a more than 50% overlap because, I suppose, more than half of all bios here on Wikipedia are people of the 20th century. Kraxler (talk) 14:59, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Presentation proposal for Wikimania 2015[edit]

Wikimania 2015 Mexico City identity.jpg How to pick up more women...
Hi Ser! Victuallers and I have developed a proposal for a talk to be presented at Wikimania 2015. It's titled, How to pick up more women... -- as in more women editors and more women's biographies. Examples include the Edit-a-thon blitz during WikiWomen's History Month and the "new articles" work underway by WikiProject Women Writers. The Wikimania talk proposal review process has begun and there's no guarantee that this proposal will be accepted. That's where you come in. Please review our proposal and give us feedback. Ultimately, we hope you add your name to the signup at the bottom of the proposal which signifies you're interested in the talk (it does not signify you'll be attending the event). Thank you!

Hello Ser Amantio di Nicolao, I have this article watchlisted and was wondering about your edit [2]. Did you delete the deadend tag or did AWB delete it automatically?

john Clark the boxer[edit]

Hi. I was doing a little research and saw that you edited this page recently. May i ask what you edited and do you have any first hand knowledge of john clark the boxer? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Clark_%28boxer%29

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. 66.87.83.71 (talk) 23:53, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Ruth Phillips[edit]

I was wondering how come you didn't put a prod up for Ruth Phillips? Was it a mistake or is she notable enough for a article? I just put one up now. (There was one case where I almost put a prod up for a actor but considering he had a Italian wiki and I was going "oh well he have a IMDB page anyway" I just skipped that) Wgolf (talk) 20:16, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, thank you for your help, I just started today.

If not, shall I put it back in?

Thank you.

Project Anthroponymy[edit]

Thank you for the invitation to WikiProject Anthroponymy, I added myself as member, Im rather interested in Anthroponymy.

I can also see that you are an experienced AWB user, could you just brief me in the fast, easiest way to sort out all stubs on a wiki, and give all those stubs the template {{stub}}?I have also problems of finding pages with the template {{Ait}} since AWB gives me all pages where the text Ait is mentioned, also those without the template brackets. Much greatful for any advice, or where I can find it, I couldnt find it on the AWB manual. Dan Koehl (talk) 18:02, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

M. Thomas Inge[edit]

Okay so looking for strange yob for people still living I found M. Thomas Inge, which I'm not sure how this happened-but born in 1879 and listed as dying in 2001, looks like some vandalism (usually I just correct the dates whenever I find this-like I found someone saying still living born in 1750!) but for this guy not sure what to say...I did take off the 1879 part. (since you have contributed to the article I sent you this message) Wgolf (talk) 22:00, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

If you read the reference it says he collected papers that date from 1879 to 2001, not that he was alive for that period. And there's no reason to doubt that he is still alive – he appears to have been editing and publishing as recently as 2011. --Deskford (talk) 22:38, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Collaboration[edit]

Would love to work with you on future articles. I've gone through your recent edit history, and I'm intrigued. These articles are stable, but the last two articles I began are Juneau Mountain Rescue and 2015 Halifax train crash. I'd love to hear your feedback on them. In my roughly 9 years on Wikipedia, I have created about 20 articles, so I'm not a "new page factory". The vast majority of my contributions are "house keeping" issues related to details, references, and categories in other articles. I believe you and I could collaborate effectively on a wide range of issues. I hope you agree. Juneau Mike (talk) 02:28, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

English writers[edit]

Hi, I don't have a particular issue with splitting men and women writers but my concern is that most readers will be looking in the main English writers category for the articles and pretty soon it's going to be empty and the real categories like English male and English female writers are going to be hidden among the massive number of sub categories. Is it possible that for all of the ones you've split where there is a large number of sub categories that you could add a hatnote at the top of the categories explaining that they're split by male and female and embolden and link the main ones at the top? ♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:43, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

OK. Glad to see we're half the way to 5 million now anyway (from 4.5 mill I mean). These days it seems to take a few years to even gain 500,000 new articles.♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:51, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Why are you categorizing seemingly anyone who was literate and might have once written a note to the milkman as "writers" [3] [4] [5] These are tenuous to the point of irrelevance and they dilute the value of the category for real published writers. Andy Dingley (talk) 17:38, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
    I agree. To put scientists into that category when they have not written a notable book, only papers and review articles is nonsense. Please stop. --Bduke (Discussion) 20:37, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Category:Women writers for children[edit]

Hey there, I just discovered the existence of Category:Women writers for children, which you created recently.

About a cleanup tag[edit]

Hi there! I saw you tagged The 5th Quarter with {{plot}}. WP:FILMPLOT recommends a length of 400–700 words, and this is only 465 words long.

Correct WikiProject[edit]

Hi. It seems you hav added the template for WikiProject Ice Hockey to a lot of articles about bandy. They should be in WikiProject Sports in stead.

Could you take a look at the following pages? You don't seem to have retagged them properly. -- WOSlinker (talk) 22:15, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi, re these edits - about 20% of them created redlinks, so I fixed them up. But I'm puzzled as to why you wanted to replace the sport-specific {{WikiProject Ice Hockey}} with the general {{WikiProject Sports}}, when several of those talk pages already had some other sport-specific WikiProject banner, or their articles clearly concerned somebody involved in ice hockey. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:14, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure what happened - they were part of a batch of things that I retagged from WikiProject Ice Hockey because they dealt with bandy. I did a handful of spot checks as I was going along and everything seemed fine; I'm not sure what went wrong with these specifically. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:11, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I don't know if you've seen the conversation at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women writers#Authority control.

Thank you for correctly categorising the stations of the Buenos Aires Underground by their opening year.

Many thanks for the message. In Wisconsin there are several University of Wisconsin campuses including Madison.

Hi, are you permitted to use AWB to send a wikiproject message to about 30 or 40 editors asking them to re-sign up for a project if still active?♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:25, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

See WP:Intertranswiki talk page, I'm trying to breathe new life into it. If you're still interested add a tick by your name.

Thanks. Seems Category:Official historical monuments of France split should be uncontroversial too, there's 44,000 odd monuments in total so.. Perhaps create the region categories first, then feed the department categories into them (like Category:Official historical monuments of Languedoc-Roussillon), then make sure the department categories also go in Buildings and structures in xx Department, you know I think.♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:25, 28 April 2015 (UTC)


Yes, can you send the following message to the talk pages of the editors of the following list. Say

Let's give this a go again[edit]

Hi. In 2009 you joined up for the wikiproject Wikipedia:WikiProject Intertranswiki. The project has since ceased activity but is currently being given a kick start due to its importance and the coordination needed to translate content from other wikipedias. If you're still active and are still interested please visit the bottom of Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Intertranswiki and add a {{tick}} by your name within the next week so the project can do a recount and update. Thankyou.

Mailing list[edit]

Cheers.♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:58, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Retired numbers[edit]

Hey, man. Thanks for the awesome retired numbers template. I'm trying right now to clean things up and make them uniform throughout the MLB. The problem is that the Toronto Blue Jays' Level of Excellence has incredibly long images that are illegible at 100px. I don't want to screw things up, and am unsure how to put the option in without screwing everything up. It's been some years since I created templates.

I'll go around and add sizes to all 30 teams when it's done. I've been planning on fiddling with stuff anyway. I meant to do it a long time ago and am finally getting down to it now. Thank you. --The Silent Wind of Doom (talk) 14:01, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Oop! Haha. I clicked the talk page before checking the history for the creator, so yeah. My mistake.--The Silent Wind of Doom (talk) 14:22, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Category:Niue mythology[edit]

Hi, can you rename as Category:Niuean mythology and also replace In Niue mythology with In Niuean mythology at the top of all the articles linked?

Another AWB request, can you update all of the comunes on Sardinia with this?.. I've reached Donori for Cagiari provinces but there's also other provinces in Sardinian needing updating with the better scale map. Unless Alakzi could do it or simply code the template to say if Sardinia display map sort of thing?♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:31, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. There sure are a lot of places beginning with S in Sardinia. Alakzi (talk) 19:29, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

I can't see any possible links in Tilalofonua, so why the tag?♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:21, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
