DYK stats[edit]

I added your article Kate Vaughan to the DYK stats. As it had reached over 5,000 views. Cheers.--BabbaQ (talk) 16:57, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Male vs. women writers[edit]

I saw your point here regarding the categorization of male vs. women writers. Just to note...we do in fact have categories such as Category:American male writers and Category:American male novelists. I don't know much about their origins, but I've begun using them as well. They fly under the radar, but they exist. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 23:37, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Thank you for your comments on my talk page. Actually it was you who first encouraged me and sparked my interest in DYK by nominating my first article Cefn Golau back in 2010 when I was a novice. That in turn led to my enthusiasm for Wikipedia. Thanks. Cwmhiraeth (talk) 06:13, 1 November 2014 (UTC) Thats brilliant I never realised. We need to keep alive the idea that new and productive editors arise as a bi product of making editting the wiki fun and interesting Victuallers (talk) 22:48, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Thérèse de Dillmont, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Austrian. 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.

Tuterei Karewa[edit]

Hey Victuallers. On this article, I had an external media link to File:Tuterei, Karewa (ngatimaru chief) by J Lles died 1943.jpg because of the Terms of Use on the website that the Hocken Collections, University of Otago. I was in correspondence with the institution when you had uploaded the image to Commons, and got this reply back from them:

Thank you for your enquiry of 17 October, 2014, regarding use of a photo we have of Ngatimaru chief Tuterei Karewa.

I noticed this image is already being used on the Wikipedia article.

Terms of Use of our images are stated on the Hocken Snapshop website on the home page and on the copyright page.

Our policy is that any public display or online publication of our images requires the purchase of a 
high resolution digital format file and proper citation.

The Library is not willing to license the image under a Creative Commons license.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

I'm in total agreement with you that the image is in public domain. That said, I'd rather this be a link to external media because I'm not a lawyer and don't have the knowledge to grapple with New Zealand copyright law or the possible claim the institution has to the photograph or scan of the photo or whatnot. Let me know what you think. I, JethroBT drop me a line 18:00, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Disappointed by NZ position[edit]

Hi Jethro, this is a tricky balance. I have given talks boasting about the NZ leading role in global copyright where the government has agreed that the cultural value of your inheritance is more important than the minor monies that might be made from selling images that are actually already out of copyright..... so I'm disappointed to see that this institution has such a dated view. I'm hoping this is out of line with general NZ GLAM aspirations as its obviously an anachronistic view. The image is solidly out of copyright so I guess they need to speak to a wiki commons admin if they think they have a legal claim to this image. My view is that they are creating a (diminishing) job for themselves in managing exhausted NZ copyrights (... and there is a bigger role in sharing the inheritance which was left with them to share with the world). Other GLAM professionals, in the UK, give me privately the impression that their institutions are trying to fufil the requirements of old bequests and loan agreements that they themselves believe are "past their best". They understand that their moral position is bereft of value but they dont know how to get themselves out of the corporate inertia'l mess. Thanks for the chance to get that off my chest. Do feel free to quote this "rant". If I can help you them do ask. cheers Victuallers (talk) 21:30, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Library of Sir T.B.[edit]

Hi Victuallers, many thanks for the suggestion, but probably best not raise its profile because while of course its not 'my' piece whatsoever, i do distinctly remember 10 years having to plead for it not to be deleted from Wikipedia. The whole project here seems to be dominated by people too eager to hastily tweak, delete, object or edit in an unconstructive way, but totally unable to write a whole, coherent sentence themselves, yet alone an original page, which of course is very frustrating when someone does not even understand the topic. I think we may have communicated before sometime ago, yes ? Norwikian (talk) 17:24, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Oh the tweakers serve as well I think. My articles, at least, magically get better. We have spoken before. I'm not sure how yopu manage to evaluate these people. Are you sure they are not trying to help? I suspect your article will never be deleted ... and I don't believe featured lists ever are. It was only a suggestion. thanks for your contributions.

Thanks for your continued edits and contributions to articles for the Women, Art and Culture class!!! I saw that you removed the close paraphrasing tag on the applicable section for the Frances Maria Kelly article.

Benin[edit]

The Benin objects on display in the British Museum used to include a couple of carved ivory salt cellars with interesing subjects. One, unless I'm misremembering, showed men swimming naked among crocodiles, who were snapping at those enticing dangly bits. I wonder if they're still being shown?

Why the "high" rating for the Sinclair C5?[edit]

In this edit, you gave the Sinclair C5 a "high" importance rating at Wikipedia:WikiProject Automobiles. I do not understand why an electrically-assisted human powered tricycle that failed heavily in the marketplace would earn a "high" importance rating at WikiProject Automobiles, nor, indeed, why it would be within the scope of the project at all. Could you please explain the rating, so that I might know why I shouldn't change it from "high importance" in WikiProject Automobiles to "unknown importance" in WikiProject Transport? Sincerely, SamBlob (talk) 18:07, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

This isn't a big deal - change it if you feel strongly about it. I think that the first attempt to sell an electric car to a population of a country is fairly important. You may feel that in hindsight it wasn't successful but neither was the first steam powered or petrol driven car. As I say its your call, you don't need my permission to change it. Do it! If you feel that uncommercial tricycles that occasionally needed pushing then can you compare it with this trike. Victuallers (talk) 20:31, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Touché, although a three-wheeled "automobile" that couldn't climb a hill under its own power or go much (if any) faster than 10 mph was far more acceptable in the 1880s than in the 1980s. OTOH, a Motorwagen could transport two or three people on level ground. Sincerely, SamBlob (talk) 23:15, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
