Harvest Moon 64[edit]

Your additions to Harvest Moon 64 are incredibly excessive. Editors are discouraged from adding tons of lists describing all facets of a game per WP:GAMEGUIDE, WP:FANCRUFT, and WP:GAMECRUFT. I will refrain from shortening the article myself for the time being, but I suggest that you re-evaluate your edits and trim away all that is non-notable and inappropriate for Wikipedia, specifically the numerous tables of game items and lengthy character biographies.--ThomasO1989 (talk) 02:53, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Hey there again. I'm glad you have taken my criticism nicely and I apologize myself if I came on too strongly. I've seen many editors over the past few years who actually insist on adding long lists, so it gets under the skin after a while. :D It is true that more information may move articles to higher classes, but the information needs to help the reader obtain a general understanding on what exactly the game is about-- how it's played, what has been said about it, how it was made. Readers often want the big picture, and it helps to imagine what the average reader would think when reading an article. Take the Wario's Woods article for example. Before I did work on it, it looked like this. The article focused too much on the details and only those familiar with the game might understand it, and it would take a while for someone else to figure out what it's about. So even though it had a good length, it was Start-class for a long time.
Looking at Harvest Moon 64 now, I would say that the article needs more references, which often boosts article quality. I also think some sections ought to be rewritten too, particularly the lead paragraphs for Gameplay, as they contain issues with POV. It feels almost like a review, especially "Most players, however, opt to restart the game from the beginning as the events become predictable and, with most or all achievements, gameplay becomes monotonous." and "For seasoned gamers who enjoy a challenge." These biased statements should be removed. If the former (or something similar) is actually mentioned in a critical review like IGN or GameSpot, then it should be moved into Reception and the review cited. As for the lists, I think they'd be best integrated into the text, but things like prices or how to obtain them should be left out. The table of vegetables, for example, can be written in as "A variety of crops can be planted and harvested, such as turnips, potatoes, and corn. Some crops begin to grow only in certain seasons, and others are capable of growing back after being harvested." though some of the rest of the section should be edited to fit in this (roughly written) statement. These are ideas off the top of my head, but that should be a good start. Good luck! --ThomasO1989 (talk) 02:04, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
At first glance, I think that Gameplay can still be condensed into one or two large sections, rather than multiple really small subsections that feel a bit cluttered. I can still sense an urge to describe how to do things or give long lists of items (a few vegetables is enough, rather than all of them; and some readers will not know what "Moonlight Stones" and "Blue Stones" are, so they're best left out) so those areas should be looked at. I'm glad you were able to get references, however GameFaqs (stated by Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Sources) is not considered a wholly reliable source; it's usually used for release dates. There are also some areas that have over-citing, particularly the subsections of Gameplay where single references are mentioned many times in a single paragraph (if a whole paragraph comes from one source, a single citation at the end is acceptable), and the release date, which is cited in two different areas by different sources. I do agree, however, that the article is clean enough to have the tag removed.
In Reception sections, the information is usually in two or three paragraphs, where the first usually describes the positive reviews and the second points out the negative or more mixed reviews. The third, though optional, usually contains sales information, if any is available (I must point out that VGChartz is not a reliable source for this material). The section should open with "HM64 received mixed to positive reviews" or something like that.
All in all, the article still needs work, but it's heading in the right direction. --ThomasO1989 (talk) 16:11, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Treasure cove rainbow.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Treasure cove rainbow.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 that will be useful. However, please note that images 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. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 06:11, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Challenge Ancient Empires Cover.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Challenge Ancient Empires Cover.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 01:01, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Challenge Ancient Empires Cover.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Challenge Ancient Empires Cover.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 01:01, 20 May 2011 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 01:01, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Vendo Vending Machine.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Vendo Vending Machine.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F9 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image appears to be a blatant copyright infringement. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted images or text borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Eeekster (talk) 23:42, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Vendo Logo.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Vendo Logo.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 23:43, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Ventricina[edit]

Hi Sesamehoneytart, the Ventricina is a salami prepared inside a pig's urinary bladder, not a vesicle. I think the misunderstanding arose because in Italian bladder and vesicle are rendered with the same word "vescica". I'm going to fix this in the article. Thanks! --Gspinoza (talk) 10:51, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Precision Aerodynamics[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Precision Aerodynamics requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Tckma (talk) 14:18, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Masatoshi Ono[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Masatoshi Ono has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Gaijin42 (talk) 17:51, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Copy edits[edit]

Hi there. Thanks for participating in the WP:GOCE backlog drive! I'm checking everyone's work, and I had a few comments on your edits to Street Fighter. There was a spot where you partially fixed a sentence. The original said, "Street Fighter II was the first one-on-one fighting game to give players a choice from a variety of player characters with different moves, an option which created hitherto unknown levels of depth and replay value for an arcade game." You changed it to "Street Fighter II is the first one-on-one fighting game to give players a choice from a variety of player characters with different moves, an option which created depth and a replay value to the arcade game." The phrasing in the last part of that is a bit awkward. Since there was a citation needed tag, I just pulled that last part completely. You also used version to describe games in a few places that weren't quite accurate, since I would distinguish versions as variations on a single game, rather than different games in the series. Otherwise, the work there looks pretty good.

Your edits to Aquilonia (Conan) have a few minor points also. You mostly fixed the tenses to present, which is great, but it looks like you may have started getting a little burnt out towards the end of the article, which I definitely understand, because you left the past tense in place in a few places. You can see the fixes I made here, although I may also have missed some myself. It's a huge article! The only other point on that article is your changing "I" to "(he)" and variations inside the quote. My instinct is that that is not the way we would want to do it, but I'm not 100% sure. I started a discussion on that here and would like to get your opinion on it. Sorry for such a wall of text, but again, thanks for your help, and it looks quite good in general! —Torchiest talkedits 23:44, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I remember that cursed Aquilonia article. That's the last time I try to go through 6000 words in one sitting. It's so strange how long and detailed the articles on fantasy and fiction are compared to nonfictional ones. The article on Optimus Prime I slogged through last September (18,000 words) that had to mention his every appearance and his actions in every transformers series (the thing has died and been brought back to life more than Kenny). I much prefer the more interesting ones, such as the Greco-Italian War or History of Miami, that actually give me pertinent knowledge germane to the real world. But, yea, I never claimed to be perfect, just trying to help out.Sesamehoneytart 00:56, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes, sorry, I didn't mean to come across as ungrateful. The improvements you made were substantial, and I was probably being too nitpicky. Definitely agree about huge fictional articles being mind-numbing. I've done a few "List of blah blah blah characters..." that about did me in. Cheers. —Torchiest talkedits 19:31, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)

Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 20:29, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Cochrane email access
Hi, your account is approved but I need your email address so Cochrane can send you your code. Could you email me at wikiocaasi@yahoo.com? Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 19:51, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Tennessee WikiProject[edit]

Hi. I see that you added a bunch of photos in National Register of Historic Places listings in Hamilton County, Tennessee. That's a nice enhancement to that list -- I suppose you are aware of the Wikipedia Loves Monuments photo contest and that you intend to enter... (If you missed the announcement, search this site for the info.)

I'd like to invite to you join us at WikiProject Tennessee. There's no cost or obligation involved in signing up, but I hope you'll watchlist the project talkpage. The more knowledgeable participants we have in the WikiProject, the more likely we are to be able to answer the odd questions that arise from time to time.

Thanks for the photos. I look forward to seeing more of you! --Orlady (talk) 02:23, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Wikifying[edit]

Hi Sesamehoneytart, thanks for your work on the Wikify Drive. I've been noticing a few small problems that I was hoping you could correct. First off, take a read through Template:Infobox_person/doc#Parameters to make sure you're familiar with usage guidelines. For example, in many cases you've been adding the nationality parameter inappropriately. It's also helpful to check that the information is sourced, particularly when dealing with a living person. Second, make sure you're using the correct template - Gorch Fock (author), for example, should probably use {{Infobox writer}} instead. Cheers, Nikkimaria (talk) 14:38, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

Just spreading the word.[edit]

I got the wikification drive for the month started, the other day. Would have had it up sooner if I'd realized it hadn't been started, but at least it's up now. :) Okay folks, say it with me: 1 for the money, 2 for the - the - okay, just let me read the script again first...

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?


IEG grant
CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [4]
