Cyriac Pullapilly[edit]

Hi, the reason why I used the broad Category:Historians at Cyriac Pullapilly is because we do not really know his nationality and his writings are across a broad swathe of subject matter. I think that assigning Category:American historians, as you have, may be a breach of WP:BLPCAT: although he is based in the US, he is of Indian origin, a former priest in an India-based Roman Catholic church, and a member of the Royal Society of Arts (which is a British institution for which his eligibility is almost certainly that he was born when India was the British Raj). I've no idea if he has taken US citizenship but "American historians" can only apply to him in terms of where he resides - is this really sufficient? - Sitush (talk) 14:12, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Georgian Voices - Adila da Ali-phasha sample.ogg)[edit]

aboriginal cat/article naming issues again[edit]

Please see User_talk:Good_Olfactory#Er.......5Bwhine.2C_whimper.5D where your name emerged as the creator of Category:Dakelh. Are you around much at all, Quill? I'd really rather be writing articles rather than having to deal with all this stuff...the RMs and most CfRs got resolve satisfactorily but one, the Category:Squamish is still pending, with the user who closed the other CfRs now proposing something we've never seen before which will just cause more problems and move the goalposts again; so far Kwami's unilateral speedy of Dakelh to Carrier people hasn't caused a CFDS to ;Category:Carrier people but unless we formalized guidlines or at least conventions in CANMOS or IPNA, it's a done deal, which is why the remaning Skwxwu7mesh/Squamish one is critical to resolve or it will set more bad precedents. Hope you're doing well...I'm gonna try and get some articles written before I either split from frustration or am uprooted for reasons of complex necessity....if you want to email me so we can chat out of public view, do so anytime.

Hi Themightyquill, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the autopatrolled right to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the patroller right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled.

Icon[edit]

Hello, Mighty. We has a discussion awhile ago on the talk page at NHSC, where you had talked about creating lists of Parks Canada sites. Whether you pursue such lists or not, one of the things we discussed was using a beaver icon on the various NHSC lists to identify those sites administered by Parks Canada (at present, there is a reference in the lead as to the # of Parks Canada site in the province or territory in question, but usually no indication of which ones unless one follows the external link in the reference). As a bit of test, I've added a beaver icon to those particular entries on List of National Historic Sites of Canada in Manitoba. The icon links to the Parks Canada article, although in future it could potentially link to a list of Parks Canada sites. Let me know what you think. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 21:13, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

I wish you'd weighed in on the primarytopic RMs on Squamish (disambiguation) and Squamish, British Columbia; too late now for the 8-day close on the 2nd RM for Squamish people->Skwxwu7mesh which I may take to Move Review yet, but looking at the way that place works it focusses more on wikiquette than on rationale and given the usual attitude towards me I'd say it's pointless; getting it relisted would give more time for comment from other Canadians/BCers, but as with the RM of last year (closed in 7 days), that seems to be a done deal. The recognition of Squamish/town as a primarytopic, as has been going down with other BC towns since I RM'd them this week, would be the fly in the ointment at the CfD. Whatever, thanks for your understanding words; please see my usercontributions for other RMs underway, not just of this kind but also re the towns, and I'm about to launch one to make First Nations government into band government where it should be, and traditional and tribal council and other paragovernmental systems might be at First Nations governance or Aboriginal governance in Canada. Kwami told me today, ironically on Talk:Tlingit people#Requested move, that I can't build a "walled garden around BC" and dispenses as usual with the local variety and lexicon of Canadian English as being irrelevant against his mass of linguistic/ethnographic sources....apparently he doesn't know the Tlingit aren't really in BC, other than one kwaan of them.Skookum1 (talk) 11:21, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Files_for_deletion/2014_May_9#File:Tessek_valasztani.jpg[edit]

The image may have deserved deletion, but it seems to me it would make sense to make sure my legitimate question was answered before doing so. - TheMightyQuill (talk) 16:37, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

The issue is that there was no sourced commentary that required the image for significant reader understanding of the topic. In the Fidesz article the only text referring to the image on the poster was the image description. Though this had a reference, that reference in a circular fashion just referred back to the same text here on Wikipedia(see here). In the History of Hungary article none of the article's text referred to the image either. Sourced commentary is a large indicator of the significance of images; if independent writers see it as important enough to write about it is often correspondingly important enough here. Some images fail to be kept even if there is commentary as the text is sufficient without the image. - Peripitus (Talk) 21:20, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

yo[edit]

I tried using "ping" and it comes up as redlinks; per here and this, which I finally put up as a sandbox last night. The ongoing war at WP:NCL is related....I may catch heat for voicing so loudly (again) against that closer (Chipewyan and certain others) but the consequences of the "irrationalizations" of the closing arguments, which are verbose while complaining of my verbosity, remain with us and ultimately need resolution by informed discussion and proper readings of the full texts of guidelines, not one-liner suppositions of what's needed; As you know I work with the titles and topics of this kind in BC all the time; having to pipe wrong or unnecessarily disambiguated terms all the time, whther endonyms or town-names, because someone can't even read the whole of a guideline they cite (and so cite wrongly) is beyond irritating; Kayoty re-started that discussion, which Flyodian had started; and F got the same high handed disregard for disputes of a bad, uninformed and, to me, obviously biaed/POV, closing call with "consult a dictionary" is quite the thing to hear from someone who apparently can't (or didn't, at least) even read the whole of the guideline she used to justify her bad close....anyways, I've been mostly busy doing geographic/historical articles..... the same editor who buggered up the Denesuline title by moving it to Chipewyan, and who moved Nlaka'pamux to Thompson, and Tsuu Tina to Sarcee and so on..... is who is blocking consensus at NCL; I'm not POLLing of CANVASSing; it doesn't matter who says what there, anything they say is turned on its head and claimed to say the opposite of what it actually says; that guideline is blocked for edit-warring right now..adn guess who was doing the warring....Skookum1 (talk) 08:42, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Derby[edit]

Why did you remove the neighbourhoods cat from Derby, British Columbia? Because it's not an "official" neighbourhood according to the ToL's planning department, maybe? Many of the official neighbourhoods have no historical context, e.g. Walnut Grove and Willowbrook, vs long-standing historical localities such as Derby and Glen Valley.Skookum1 (talk) 01:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I understand your concern, Skookum. It's a great article and an important contribution to wikipedia, but I just don't think "neighbourhood" is accurate. It isn't currently a neighbourhood because really, no one lives there (the article itself says its now just a farm field) and to my knowledge, no one describes the surrounding area as Derby. The article itself doesn't describe Derby as a neighbourhood, but a "locality." You'll note, as well, that real estate agents (who love neighbourhood names more than anyone, consider Glen Valley a neighbhourhood, but not Derby.[1] When Derby was a community of sorts, "Langley" didn't exist, so it never was a neighbourhood of Langley, really. It's categorized as "ghost town" which is at least somewhat accurate (in my mind, ghost towns are existing but empty/abandoned towns, but I know the term is used beyond that) but I'm not sure if we have a term for this kind of place except "former community." - TheMightyQuill (talk) 16:38, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
There's lots of localities in BC with zero population, or zero sign of any (in some cases there's heaps of people around, but nothing to say what the place is, and no store etc e.g. Moha, British Columbia. Official and real estate community designations aren't the only placenames within a district/muni; in some cases they're notably absent from planning schemes; such as Ferndale in Mission, although that name is used in real estate, and of course by the prison there; some neighbourhoods in Mission are known just by their road names e.g. Clay Road, Keystone Road, Richards Road; in one case Genstar tried to publish plans that would have wiped the name Silverhill off the map, even Silverhill Road wasn't on their plans for redeveloping the area (the community stood up and kiboshed that b.s.), even though it's one of the oldest communities in the district. So if it's a question of nomenclature; what is a neighbourhood and what is not a neighbourhood, that's a very wide net in need of a few more knots either tied or untied; the Whonnock Indian Reserve is now no longer populated, and it's in Maple Ridge, but it's not a neighbourhood of Maple Ridge, though Whonnock is. Yes, Derby's a "ghost locality" (and is covered, I think, by Old Fort Langley, which it sprang up around; that may be a redirect to a section on Fort Langley, I'm not sure lately. I'm not sure what someone who lives on one of the farms at that location calls that area; I know they don't call it Walnut Grove, which though that's the name that it's ascribed to by the ToL's planning department, effectively means only all the new condos and mini-malls just off the 401 to its west/southwest.Skookum1 (talk) 16:55, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Part of the problem with places like Moha, just to note about that, is that the people who live in such places "have no traffic with revenooers" and aren't counted in census, and because many don't own property, don't vote in RDEA elections; are they residents? Some have lived there for thirty years. I can't cite the c.300 people who live in that environs because there's no official count of them to cite; similar situations abound in rural BC, around the Coast and throughout the Interior, and just like bands that don't allow census-takers on IRs, they don't officially exist; but do in real terms. There's also some places with "community" listings that aren't communities, and some places that are "former Indian Villages" that are still very much real, living villages.....Skookum1 (talk) 16:59, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
