Ambox warning pn.svg

The article Jamie Conlan has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article, which appeared to be about a real person, individual animal, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. NawlinWiki (talk) 15:07, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for January 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that you've added some links pointing to disambiguation pages. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Categories[edit]

Hi, hope you won't mind a bit of advice - its good to add categories to new articles - if you take a look at Kieran Marmion for example you can see the cats I added to it. All articles should have some cats and for a living person they need to have "Living people" and "(year) births" as a minimum. If you need any more help, please send me a message. --Bcp67 (talk) 21:03, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

References[edit]

Hello, I saw that you have been improving the Operation Serval article. Thank you for your work! But I would like to point out that you do not need to add the references you use twice! As of now you put your references correctly into the "<ref></ref>" template and then you also copy the same link into the "References" section. This is not necessary. When you put a link into the "<ref></ref>" template anywhere in the article, it will automatically be listed with the correct number in the "References" section. So there is no need to copy the link a second time. Best regards and keep up the good work :-) noclador (talk) 10:54, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads up I will make sure it does not happen in the future.Tomh903 (talk) 12:20, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
you're welcome :-) and if you have any other question: feel free to leave a question on my talkpage or User:Buckshot06 or User:The ed17 or User:Nick-D talkpage - one of us 4 is always online and we focus all four on the military pages.

Re: Skyrim images[edit]

The copyright holder is Bethesda Softworks/Bethesda Game Studios/ZeniMax Media, you need permission from them to upload under the Creative Commons license. Unless the copyright holder has given permission to use the work under Creative Commons license, it should not on there. Video game screenshots should be uploaded using the non-free tag if there is no permission and it falls under fair use: Template:Non-free_video_game_screenshot.

Also from the description of the screenshot, it displays a modded version of the game which is an inaccurate representation of the actual stock game, so it shouldn't be included in the article. The1337gamer (talk) 10:05, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Welcome to MILHIST[edit]

ROG[edit]

Hi, ROG's move was confirmed by an extremely credible source that I referenced. It is normal practice here on wiki to add such edits IMO. Cfs198 (talk) 11:01, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

It does not matter. I did not want it on the page until it was confirmed by Munster Rugby and not just some anonymous "source". Remember Wikipedia is not the news we can wait until it is officially announced, a few hours won't make a difference. Thank you for your edits but be more patient in future.Tomh903 (talk) 13:14, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

"I did not want it on the page". Is it your page? I would not call the Irish Independent an anonymous source. They stated it was "confirmed", not rumoured. If Munster Rugby were the only accepted source for the page you could be waiting for months to update certain facts/events. Their site commonly has errors to do with the squad. Cfs198 (talk) 17:30, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

I didn't state it was "my page" but I have the right to take stuff down if it is not sourced correctly. If you look at all Munster related pages, ALL of the match reports etc.. come from the official website. Read the guidelines WP:NOT#NEWSPAPER. You do not need to put up incorrect material just for the sake of a few hours. I know the material you put up yesterday WAS correct but what if it wasn't? Then it would create a mess that everyone would have to clean up.Tomh903 (talk) 18:17, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

ROG page[edit]

Just curious to see what someone else would think of the idea - do you think it would be a good idea to put a section on ROG's page with links to the articles he is doing for the examiner? I'm torn with the idea because it could get too big, but it could be good, not sure. MunsterFan2011

Sounds like a good idea. Go for it if you want, I can't see any problems except the one you mentioned so I don't think any other editors will have an issue with it.Tomh903 (talk) 14:17, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi, out of curiosity, is there a level above good that the ROG page could go up to? MunsterFan2011 (talk) 08:30, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes, the article could be improved to featured status which would mean it is among the elite of Wikipedia articles (only 4,316 of the 4,561,509 articles on Wikipedia are deemed good enough to be featured) and would at some point be featured on the main page.

Your GA nomination of Ronan O'Gara[edit]

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know I am glad to be reviewing the article Ronan O'Gara you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by GA bot, on behalf of Shudde -- Shudde (talk) 03:46, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Ronan O'Gara[edit]

The article Ronan O'Gara you nominated as a good article has been placed on hold Symbol wait.svg. The article is close to meeting the good article criteria, but there are some minor changes or clarifications needed to be addressed. If these are fixed within 10 days, the article will pass, otherwise it will fail. See Talk:Ronan O'Gara for things which need to be addressed. Shudde talk 04:41, 3 August 2013 (UTC)

Hey Tom. Unfortunately I've failed the article. There wasn't a lot of action regarding some of my comments. I'd encourage you to work on the points I raised in the review and consider renominating it in the future. It's got the bulk of the material there necessary to meet the criteria, but it's just not there right now. It's close though, and definitely worth persisting with. If you want any help with the article let me know, I'd be glad to pitch in where I can. – Shudde talk 03:42, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Ronan O'Gara[edit]

The article Ronan O'Gara you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol unsupport vote.svg; see Talk:Ronan O'Gara for reasons why the nomination failed.

Article Feedback Tool update[edit]

Hey Tomh903. I'm contacting you because you're involved in the Article Feedback Tool in some way, either as a previous newsletter recipient or as an active user of the system. As you might have heard, a user recently anonymously disabled the feedback tool on 2,000 pages. We were unable to track or prevent this due to the lack of logging feature in AFT5. We're deeply sorry for this, as we know that quite a few users found the software very useful, and were using it on their articles.

We've now re-released the software, with the addition of a logging feature and restrictions on the ability to disable. Obviously, we're not going to automatically re-enable it on each article—we don't want to create a situation where it was enabled by users who have now moved on, and feedback would sit there unattended—but if you're interested in enabling it for your articles, it's pretty simple to do. Just go to the article you want to enable it on, click the "request feedback" link in the toolbox in the sidebar, and AFT5 will be enabled for that article.

Again, we're very sorry about this issue; hopefully it'll be smooth sailing after this :). If you have any questions, just drop them at the talkpage. Thanks! Okeyes (WMF) 21:44, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Danny Morrissey[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Danny Morrissey has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article about a footballer who fails WP:GNG and who has not played in a fully pro league.

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.

Re: League of Ireland is professional[edit]

You'll find that the LoI is listed and sourced as a non-fully-pro top flight at WP:FPL. I would also add that WP:NFOOTBALL, the principal notability guideline for footballers, explicitly excludes youth international appearances as a source of notability.

Portal bio request[edit]

How is that for service! I just happened to see you request and had the time to create en entry quickly. You are the first person in a very long time to make a decent suggestion, so I created Portal:Ireland/Selected biography archive/31 for Ronan O'Gara. It basically consists of the lede minus the citations. If you think it need editing please do so. It will automatically appear on the portal as one of 31 random biographies.

Yeah it looks fine to me. Thanks for creating the entry so quickly. Tomh903 (talk) 22:02, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Article restructure[edit]

Hi. You appear to be undertaking a significant restructuring of the Garda Siochana article.

Please can you add a note or notes to the relevant talk page (or at the very least use edit summaries) to explain what it is that you are doing? And what problems you are attempting to resolve? So that other editors can understand? And possibly assist?

The WP:BOLD guidelines are tempered by a sub-text which suggests you think and involve people before unilaterally "deciding" that you have a better way of doing something.

For example, you seem to have decided that the name and terminology of the force is less important (and should be moved below) for example a list of all Gardaí who died on duty. Can you explain the rationale for this? (Not here - on the article talk page). Personally I don't think the terminology section should be moved so far down. And I don't think we need an in-line list as has been added. (For example there is a separate list in the UK article.)

You also seem to have moved the section on the Reserve as a sub-section of terminology. Is this a mistake? Intentional? If intentional, what's the rationale? Personally I don't think this makes sense.

In general can you please explain these changes? Again, not here - but on the relevant article talk page. Or - at the very least - in your edit summaries? (Edit summaries are incredibly important to allow other editors to follow and contribute and collaborate - in the spirit of WP:CON).

Finally, please note that WP:ENGVAR guidelines suggest that we should use the [[WP:TIES|local spelling of for example "specialise", etc... Guliolopez (talk) 21:58, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

I have explained on the talk page if you want to take a look.Tomh903 (talk) 22:08, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

Giorgio Napolitano[edit]

I accept criticism, but remember that you have reverted an edit and now Giorgio Napolitano is credited as "communist" (he has not been a communist at least since 1991, when PCI became PDS), "Roman Catholic" and "atheist", all together.--Carnby (talk) 23:24, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Artillery Corps[edit]

Hi. I noticed this new article today. As a stub, it's a promising start (though I made a few minor tweaks as the lead seemed to be a direct copy/paste from the official site - which is a "no no"). If you are genuinely interested in the subject, and can source the relevant books/references/etc, it would be of great benefit to the article (and beyond) to expand the stub to include more information on the history of the Corps (including some info on the fact that it used to have three sections (not the current two), a few lines on the history of the CDA (Coast Defence Artillery) section, etc). See my note on the talk page if interested in pursuing. Guliolopez (talk) 14:51, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

1940 French Army of the Alps[edit]

Hey, I am canvassing active MILHIST members who have stated they are interested in French military history during the Second World War.

II am wondering if you can help, I am trying to improve the quality of the Italian invasion of France article. I have checked the limited sources I can access regarding the Army of the Alps, and nothing seems to add up. Some sources state that on 20 June, when the Italian main attack was launched against the Alpine Line, that the army had 3-4 divisions and others state it was as high as 7. Do you have any information that can clarify what the state of this army was?

Replaceable fair use File:Isabel Webster Sky News.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Isabel Webster Sky News.jpg. I noticed that this file is being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and add the text {{di-replaceable fair use disputed|<your reason>}} below the original replaceable fair use template, replacing <your reason> with a short explanation of why the file is not replaceable.
  2. On the file discussion page, write a full explanation of why you believe the file is not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. January (talk) 21:28, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Why[edit]

Why are you changing "Roman Catholic" to "Roman Catholism" in the religion infoboxs across several BLPs? They both refer to the same page, and people don't say "I am a Roman Catholism", they say "I am a Roman Catholic". It reads weird with your change. Arzel (talk) 15:42, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, sorry if the changes annoyed you but I change "Roman Catholic" to "Roman Catholicism" because Roman Catholic isn't a religion, it describes adherents to the religion. Having Roman Catholic as a politicians religion in the info-box would be like having "Muslim" instead of "Islam" as a Muslim politicians religion. Tomh903 (talk) 17:33, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Tomh309, the Eurasian Economic Union will launch on January 1 2015 with Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan as its members states. Tajikistan may join in the future. As you are interested in Russia, if I may I would like to ask you to help assess the article so that we can get it ranked as a good article before January 1 (if you have the time and wish to do so). We're currently working to make it fit the featured article criteria. If someone could assess the article it would be greatly appreciated.
