Featured articles[edit]

Thanks for the message. I have no idea how the random article search engine works. If you are looking for featured articles, you can check Category:Featured articles. If I am looking for something to read, the main page always has plenty of interesting stuff to be found - one of my regular reads is the "on this day" page -- for today it's February 25. – ukexpat (talk) 17:27, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Puducherry[edit]

I cleaned up some of the article, including the See also section. There are way too many other redlinks - I opened a discussion on the talk page. – ukexpat (talk) 15:50, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Links to dates[edit]

Personally, I think they are a waste of time, especially when used in the example you provided. There is an arbcom case looking into the issue of date linking so probably a good idea not to do anything about it until they have issued their opinion. By the way when you want to link to a Wikipedia article, you do not need to use the full URL, just enclose the page title in double square brackets, so [[The Four (TVB)]] renders as The Four (TVB). – ukexpat (talk) 16:05, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 17:22, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

"Piping" links[edit]

The solution to your problem at The Resurrection of Jimber-Jaw is to use a piped link (see WP:PIPE). You would use the following syntax [[Cryogenic|cryogenicist]] which renders as cryogenicist. – ukexpat (talk) 17:54, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

P.S. I noticed that, and thought I'd mention the cool WP:PIPETRICK, e.g. [[Cryogenic]]ist gives Cryogenicist. --  Chzz  ►  06:59, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

User page[edit]

By icons, you mean the user boxes on the left and language boxes on the right? They are in two of my subpages that I have transcluded on my user page: User:Ukexpat/sidebar and User:Ukexpat/babel. Take a look at WP:Userboxes and WP:Babel. – ukexpat (talk) 15:26, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Hi,

I've replied to your question on my own talk page, User talk:Chzz#Replacing/adding new images

Hi Chzz,

Have a question about replacing/adding images. Can I replace an existing image with the one I have uploaded? I mean, if we feel that our image is more relevant or better? For example, I want to add this Neem Tree leaves close up shot, exhibiting Pinnate Venation. Also, another good resolution picture of the tree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Neem_leaves_Neem_Leaves.jpg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Neem_Tree_Thendral.JPG

Is there any restriction to the number of images an article can have?

Thanks Thendral (talk) 04:37, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Images - Chzz answers[edit]

If you upload image with the same name as an existing image, it replaces it. Be careful - check at the bottom of the image page to see which articles and pages are using the image. It's usually best to avoid using the same name unless it really is just another version of the same picture - perhaps a better resolution of the same image, for example.

In the case you mention, and most cases, you should upload it under a new name, and then edit the article(s) to change the name of the image to the new one - that way, the old image remains available in the library for others to use, and if someone objects they can easily change it back.

I should also mention that copyright is very important for images - if it's your own work, that's no problem - otherwise it must have a free to use licence. If it doesn't, it will be deleted quite quickly.

It's good to be WP:BOLD. However, if you're not confident about a change - and especially if the page is popular and frequently updated - consider discussing your idea first on the articles talk page.

There is no defined limit on images, like most things on wikipedia there are just guidelines, and there are no rules. Try to keep a balance between pictures and text - use pictures that will make the text easier to understand, not just because they're pretty. Captions can help with this too. Some articles have an image gallery; have a look at Fountain of Time, which I've been recently helping to get to a Good Article status. There's a gallery towards the end of the page. (Oh, and feel free to help improve the article if you can - we're trying to get an A rating now!)

I hope that answers your questions,

Cheers! -- Chzz ► 06:55, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Chezz on red links[edit]

Hi Chezz,

Have 2 questions for you:

1. Can we remove the red links in the Reference section?
2. Can we convert red links in the main article to plain text?

Thanks Thendral, 16 March 2009

In which article?
1. Better to try and 'fix' them by googling for the source etc - if you remove the refs, it might cause problems with the article lacking references. So, fix it if you can.
2. It depends what the words are. If they might give someone the inspiration to start an article, then they should stay; if they're pointless I'd remove them - but it's really up to you.

The redlink removal was fine.
The article needs references to reliable sources. Books, perhaps an encyclopedia, etc to verify the facts
Avoid lists (ie restaurants) - try to write it as a sentence or paragraph. Example, "Footon has a wide range or restaurants, with Indian, German and English food. Nando Bar on Cross street serve Italian Pizza and Ice cream." - etc.

If you're looking for further ideas on how to develop it, it's a good idea to look at articles about similar topics that are Good articles or Featured articles.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

I've written some more ideas on my talk page, in user talk:chzz#Red links --  Chzz  ►  13:18, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

More suggestions;

Put an infobox at the top, and fill in as much information as you can - please look at Template:Infobox Indian Jurisdiction/Examples/neighbourhood

Photo's really help with articles like this; I looked on the free photo sites but couldn't find anything; perhaps you could get some photos that could be used? Not too many; depending on the length of the article - so, at the moment, maybe 2.

Good luck with it, -- Chzz ► 13:17, 16 March 2009

Great stuff[edit]

Hi again,

I thought I'd check back, and I'm very pleased to see you getting involved in the Wikipedia community.

If I can help any time, please ask.

Great work :-)

Subheads - Chzz answers[edit]

Chezz,

Thanks for your message. Have a question - can we change the sequence of an article? such as .44_Henry? earlier there was the cartridge's details followed by the developer. I changed it to developer first then into the details. Let me know, if I did it right. And, have also added subheads. Need your guidance. Thanks again. Thendral(talk) 12:53, 23 March 2009



Well, from a quick look, it certainly looks better than before, so that's a good thing :-)
A couple of comments, for your information;

The WP:lede should be a summary, and shouldn't contain anything that isn't covered in more detail within the article itself.

Those sections are a bit short; if they cannot be expanded, it might be worth considering merging them, or using a sub-subsection(s)

I'm only making those comments FYI; it was a very good edit, so I'd advise you to carry on as you are. Don't worry, be BOLD ! -- Chzz ► 13:50, 23 March 2009

Re. email[edit]

Aesop, from the Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493.

With reference to your kind email, sorry, I avoid facebook and things like that.

By the way, in English "The Fables of Aesop" are called Aesop's Fables.

Cheers!

--  Chzz  ►  17:01, 23 March 2009 (UTC)



No worries Chzz. And thanks, now I corrected it to Aesop's fables. And, I'm searching for the illustrations done by a Russian artist called Romadin. They are fantastic (I have an old book with the stories and his illustrations, titled 'Aesop's Fables' and the publisher, Raduga Publications, Moscow). But I do not find it in the Internet. Do you know about this artist? Thendral (talk) 09:15, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Michael Romadin / Romadin, Mikhail Nikolayevich[edit]

I did some research, and found that his name in Russian is Михаил Федорович РОМАДИН. I found some information by translating a page of the Russian Wikipedia here.

I've started to build an article in my own area, User:Chzz/michael romadin - I will try to clean it up and make a real article ASAP. --  Chzz  ►  17:27, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

The article is Mikhail Romadin.

If you want, you could help tidy it up and improve it. The links are to info in Russian, but autotranslate does a reasonable job - here and here.

There are some bad links - places etc, that need checking and linking to articles if they exist.

We need to sort out the referencing - which bits of the article are with reference to each of the two lower articles, which came from the Russian wiki, and put the refs in the right place. (You'll see how I've added a citation-style reference already; it needs more of those for all the other parts.) In case you didn't know, if you use <ref name="foo">{{cite....}}</ref>, then later in the article you can just put <ref name="foo"/> to give another link to the same ref. Note the forward slash at the end.

If you can help tidy it up, that would be great. I also think it might be permissible to use one of the images, under a "fair use" licence, to represent his style.

Cheers! --  Chzz  ►  09:24, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply; sounds good; let me know how you get on, and ask for help if you need it. --  Chzz  ►  03:13, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Chzz[edit]

I'm afraid Chzz won't be around for a while. WP:Help may give you some ideas for finding people as helpful as him. Cheers, - Jarry1250 (t, c, rfa) 18:31, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I have reverted your edit to File:Jaggi Vasudev.jpg (you sort of overwrote the previous version which was well sourced). Does that now leave you with two different images? - Jarry1250 [ humourousdiscuss ] 09:11, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Already exists at File:Sadhguru_Jaggi_Vasudev14.jpg, but unless you can provide sourcing information, I'm going to have to tag it as a copyright violation based on the link you just gave me. Sorry. - Jarry1250 [ humourousdiscuss ] 15:43, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Okay, we're almost fine, but we've still got a few hoops to jump through. Firstly, you need to decide on a suitable licence for the photograph. You should make it clear to the copyright holder that they cannot just release it for use on Wikipedia; if they release it for Wikipedia they must also release it for any use, non-commerical or commerical. Are they okay with this? Secondly, we (or rather, commons) has a special procedure to go through, outlined at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials to make sure that you do actually have the correct permissios. I've tagged the page with {{OTRS-pending}}, all you need to do is to get the website to send and an official email to the address listed on that page (permissions-commons@wikimedia.org), linking explicitly back to the image in question. This may serve as a useful example email. But please make sure the copyright holder knows what they are agreeing to. Cheers, - Jarry1250 [ humourousdiscuss ] 09:11, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
You should wait, and the appropriate volunteers should handle everything - the image will get the OTRS seal of approval soon enough. In the meantime, you can use File:Sadhguru_Jaggi_Vasudev14.jpg as you want. - Jarry1250 [ humourousdiscuss ] 09:47, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Okey and Thanks! Thendral (talk) 11:48, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Jaggi Vasudev[edit]

Hi there. I'm back now; I'm not sure what your question was about; were you referring to a Wikipedia page, or perhaps a page on another project? Please let me know if I can help. Cheers.  Chzz  ►  19:48, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

The biographies of living persons policy requires that all personal or potentially controversial information be sourced. In addition, to ensure verifiability, all biographies should be based on reliable sources. If you were to bring these articles up to standards, it would greatly help us with the current 1,530 article backlog. Once the articles are adequately referenced, please remove the {{unreferencedBLP}} tag. Here is the list:

  1. Ali Ahmed Hussain Khan - Find sources: "Ali Ahmed Hussain Khan" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images
  2. Chara M. Curtis - Find sources: "Chara M. Curtis" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR · free images

Thanks for the message on my talk page. I took a look at the article and cannot see a problem with the spacing. – ukexpat (talk) 13:26, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ethisphere Institute[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

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 Ethisphere Institute 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, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. (talk) 00:04, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
