Hey there[edit]

Just wanted to stop by and apologize if my tone came off a little too strong or harsh at Wikipedia talk:Million Award.

On reflection, it's meant to be no big deal, but I can totally understand it'd feel much better to get individual awards instead of one big bundled award.

I totally won't contest anything if you or anyone else wanted to propose and/or make changes to the way the award process is done at that page.

Thanks very much for your quality contributions to Wikipedia and your participation at WP:Million Award.

I'm sorry about that,

GA listings[edit]

I'm currently correcting the listings, but I don't see anything wrong here. All are listed alphabetically in accordance with the English alphabet? Jonas Vinther (speak to me!) 21:48, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Jonas Vinther, Glad to hear you are making some progress. The edit above seems to have introduced two problems to the page. You added a line break that has been corrected. You also added St John Passion before Schwingt freudig euch empor, BWV 36 and Six Moments Musicaux (Rachmaninoff). Do you not see this as out of alphabetical order?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 22:05, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Vanya and Sonya[edit]

Hi. I made some edits, especially to cut the trivial and ridiculously long list of producers. The main ones are already named. I also put the cast info for the original production in a more sensible place. As for productions, it isn't too crazy yet - you can just list cities going forward, unless it's a particulary notable production. But once you get to, say 15 productions or so, you'll have to cut it back to the most important ones and just say that the show has been produced in [list of states/countries]. BTW, did the show have a national tour or not? -- Ssilvers (talk) 06:18, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Hear My Train A Comin' (disambiguation)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Hear My Train A Comin' (disambiguation) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The two TV episodes with "Hear My Train a Comin'" in the titles remain red links since the DAB was created in July 2014, probably because there isn't enough material from reliable sources to establish acceptable articles, see WP:DABRL; concern raised at Talk:Hear My Train A Comin'/GA2#Disambiguation

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. Tony: this came up at the GA discussion. —Ojorojo (talk) 02:40, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Hear My Train A Comin' (disambiguation)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Hear My Train A Comin' (disambiguation) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

The Signpost: 05 November 2014[edit]

GA issues[edit]

Hi Tony,

I couldn't help but notice a recent, and on-going, debate over at the GA talkpage, regarding a user not listing their GA passes. I don't know how to say this without sounding like I'm stirring up trouble, but I'll get straight to the point nevertheless. The user you have raised concerns with has also shown neglect when dealing with reviews comments for articles that he has nominated for GAN. For example, on November, 1 they informed me that a GA review for Eurovision Song Contest 2014 had begun, and stated they would be "active in the reviewing process", but as I was a far more ESC-editor (whatever that means) that it would be appreciated if I cast opinion on the review too. I responded that I would keep an eye on the review and help out if necessary. However, during the review, anything that the reviewer queried, it was myself that ended up doing the "required action", as the nominator appeared to have "neglected" their responsibility. And then they'd comment a day later and try to pass off that they had done the changes as suggested by the reviewer. And to top it all off, they got all the main credit, as he was the nominator, when it was myself that had done all the work that was required by the reviewer. All I got was a barnstar off the nominator and the wording felt somewhat patronising too. I feel the neglect is expanding beyond your notice of them not listing their passes, and it feels as though they are just on a "trophy hunt" to gain as many GA icons as possible. And he is also starting to get involved with FA reviews, which is disturbing, especially if the pattern you've picked upon with his treatment of GA's, then it would end up making a fiasco out of Wikipedia. I think some sort of action needs to be taken seriously. Wes Mouse | T@lk 21:40, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Wesley Mouse, I have heard a lot about this editor and am quite sure that if someone initiated some sort of disciplinary matter there would be lots of behavioral questions. I am not really that much into AN/ANI debates, but if you want to start one, you are likely to get lots of support and I am likely to comment.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 00:26, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, TonyTheTiger, I am slightly concerned though now as the user is trying to get involved at Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Eurovision Song Contest 2012/archive1 - using their typical one-liner promises of getting it sorted later that day, and then totally neglecting their promise. I have left a note at the FA review expressing my objections to him casting any review, due to the on-going discussion over his GA activities. Am I within my right to object to someone participating in a review, if I hold little faith that they are capable to carry it out fairly and in accordance to the procedures? Wes Mouse | T@lk 22:06, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Wesley Mouse, Like I said, I am willing to support a WP:AN or WP:ANI discussion, but I am not going to spearhead one.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 04:03, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Peer Review of Emily Ratajkowski[edit]

Hello. Your Emily Ratajkowski article has already achieved Good Article status, and the peer review was already archived Wikipedia:Peer review/Emily Ratajkowski/archive1, but I have added my own comments after reading your article and a couple of your article sources. I hope you find the input useful, but it's take it or leave it -- I'm not a regular reviewer or anything, so I'm not going to get upset if you don't pay them proper attention or anything. Cheers.--Kiyoweap (talk) 11:31, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Kiyoweap, Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the peer review. Why do you feel that Wikipedia:Peer review/Emily Ratajkowski/archive1 was already archived?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:24, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
TonyTheTiger: Never mind. Please ignore that remark if I am just confused. It's true that you have not tagged your peer review with the {{peer review/archive}} but I assumed that that archive had taken place since the page has already been created that is bluelinked above. Chalk it up to my inexperience please.--Kiyoweap (talk) 13:32, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

You seem to be the main user who got this to featured status. I love this painting and am glad to seem its article on the main page on Thanksgiving. Congratulations! The DYK article on Whitaker with the pumpkins photo is one I wrote. It's a nice pairing. HalfGig talk 12:54, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
Precious again, - happy thanksgiving! I love the pairing, mentioned for the Pumpkin on the second Thanksgiving without him, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:29, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Changes to Reel Moments page[edit]

Tony, you had made a revision to the Reel Moments page related to noting my company's involvement in that project. Id like to understand why you revised it back. Im new to wikipedia as someone trying to add content, so Im eager to learn the appropriate way to change things. I was an instrumental part of the Reel Moments program and need to determine the appropriate way to note that involvement. Any insights would be appreciated as to why the change was made.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Kevinchinoy (talkcontribs) 18:02, 20 November 2014‎ (UTC)

Kevinchinoy, You can only add content that has a WP:RS. Please do not add unsourced content that can not be WP:Ved.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 04:35, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

My Kickstarter campaign feedback[edit]

AndyTheGrump, ColinFine, Mandruss, TenOfAllTrades, TopGun, you all commented at Wikipedia:Help_desk/Archives/2014_November_18#Possible_COI_issue regarding my Kickstarter campaign (#TTTWFTW). Before I start sending out tweets, emails, and such, I want to give you a chance to give me feedback on my presentation. Note the top of this page.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 18:23, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Did you obtain permission from the Wikimedia Foundation to use their trademark (The "Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia" word mark) at the top of your personal fundraising page? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 20:30, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
TenOfAllTrades, When I asked you guys last week, no one mentioned that it is a trademark. I don't see a trademark sign on it. Why do you now suggest it is a trademark? I can remove it if it is a trademark, but I thought it was something that was nothing but letters, making it PD. On many past issues of symbols that were entirely made up of letters, they have been determined to be PD.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 21:14, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I have swapped out the Trademark for a picture of yours truly.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 21:41, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I explicitly advised you to read the WMF's trademark policy, provided you a link directly to it, and further encouraged you to contact them with a specific description of how you wished to use their marks. Bluntly, did you do any of those things? And if you did, why was it necessary to have this conversation? TenOfAllTrades(talk) 22:10, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
That portion of the conversation was regarding using the logo. I later asked about the phrase. Regardless. I requested your opinion because you were previously commenting in the abstract about a possible kickstarter campaign. Recall most of the discussion was about possible rewards. Now, there is an actual tangible campaign with actual rewards being offered and actual substantive text regarding the whole campaign. If you had opinions/concerns about a campaign in the abstract, I felt you may wish to comment on the actual tangible campaign.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 22:38, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
  • I feel I have made full disclosure and everyone has had a chance to chime in. I am going to now start passing this around (emailing and tweeting).--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 05:02, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
  • I appreciate your willingness to invest further in this (it would be very nice to have basketball images). I recommend you also invest in software (lightroom first and foremost) as well. Also, I am very surprised you are getting motion blur at 1/800. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 05:24, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
    • Crisco 1492, In terms of basketball, I have never been a big post processing person. I think it is probably because of the bulk quantities that I produce. I do need to learn about post, but I need to do a better job of capturing the images too. In fact, there is lots of room for improvement in almost all aspects of my photography. I still need to learn how to use my Canon 7D, I have had 2 disappointing outings with it. In terms of motion blur, can you talk about a particular image?--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 07:25, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
      • Crisco here. Lightroom makes managing large numbers of files pretty easy (much easier than Photoshop, at least). The outing that resulted in File:17_Years_of_Sekar_Jepun_2014-11-01_64.jpg involved over 900 pictures, of which half ended up in the trash (from shooting at a high rate; a lot of the poses were not worth keeping). I was able to go through them all in about 3 or 4 hours. As for the speed, I haven't the time to look at all of your many uploads, but I'll refer to my image here: he was spinning in circles, and I took the image at 1/250 - it was enough to freeze most of the movement. 1/800 is more than twice that speed; I'd be surprised if it was motion blur, at least on a person (hummingbird wings etc., still possible). Maybe you missed the focus?36.81.74.127 (talk) 08:33, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Precedent[edit]

This is happening right now with another campaign which just started 2-3 days ago. I was talking with some people about this and they mentioned your project. See WikiCheese. The website is in French which I do not know, but despite the language trouble I managed to create an account an contribute something to show support for the idea. Perhaps you might be interested in cross promoting this project since both of you are testing the same funding model.

The person who developed the idea of crowdfunding the creation of Wikimedia content more fully than anyone else is Evan-Amos, whose Vanamo Online Game Museum did well enough on Kickstarter.

Good luck with your project. I hope that you get what you want from it. Blue Rasberry (talk) 12:55, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

With no obvious relation, it seems that Commons:user:Ryan Hodnett has his own Kickstarter campaign to do the same thing. Is this just a coincidence that three people had the same idea on the same day? Blue Rasberry (talk) 13:06, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

It is possible that Commons:user:Ryan Hodnett saw Wikipedia:Help_desk/Archives/2014_November_18#Possible_COI_issue and went live before I did. I don't know about the motivation for Evan-Amos.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 13:24, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Evan's been doing high quality video game photography for more than 4 years, and has something like 15 FPs on the English Wikipedia (his Kickstarter was also last year, and had different goals, as he didn't need the photographic equipment so much as the things to photograph). — Crisco 1492 (talk) 00:58, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Jordan Morgan[edit]

Are you interested in creating an article for Jordan Morgan? He is playing for Virtus Roma in Lega Basket Serie A. Players in that league meet WP:NBASKETBALL. Here is his profile. Rikster2 (talk) 01:30, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Rikster2, thanks for letting me know, but since I have trouble being neutral in deciding which Michigan hoopsters are worth creating articles for I limit myself to high school All-Americans (or Gatorade HS state POYs) and actual or expected All-Big Ten players. Although he won Big Ten DPOY, he was never All-Big Ten. This is the same as Zack Novak and Stu Douglass, which I decided not to create. I spend way to much energy on finding details for Michigan guys. Also, now a lot of my free time is used to serve Uber.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 14:25, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

introduction of Barry Bonds[edit]

Hi TonyTheTiger, I notice you recently reverted my edits to the intro section of Barry Bonds for POV issues. I feel like many of the edits I made were properly supported by citations or didn't require citations, and I feel that this version of the introduction is more concise and more relevant so I've gone ahead and reverted. If you have any criticisms of the new intro just let me know here and we can come to a compromise. Thanks, RWyn (talk) 17:48, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

RWyn see WT:MLB for the discussion of Bonds.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 20:12, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Deletion discussion about Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Nevada[edit]

Hello, TonyTheTiger,

I wanted to let you know that there's a discussion about whether it should be deleted. Your comments are welcome.

If you're new to the process, articles for deletion is a group discussion (not a vote!) that usually lasts seven days. If you need it, there is a guide on how to contribute. Last but not least, you are highly encouraged to continue improving the article; just be sure not to remove the tag about the deletion nomination from the top. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CE9A:860:DD6B:693A:ACF:B874 (talk) 18:48, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
