For your tireless efforts at handling DYK well, I present you the Dyk of all DYKs, Viktor Dyk. I have absolutely no idea who he is or what he did, but it's clear that he was a total Dyk. By the way, DYK that Dyk doesn't have a DYK? Perhaps we could DYK the Dyk. :P

Heh, but on a serious note: thanks for your endless patience in staying on top of the DYK entries. It's a thankless job until someone doesn't do at, at which point, people notice just how important you are. :) Anyway, thanks again for all you do. Cheers =) --slakrtalk / 04:52, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Passion[edit]

Thank you for moving Good Friday articles to prep. I rarely ask a personal favour like time of day and such things, but this time I do. I believe that (on top of my passion and vanity) the St John Passion deserves an image by the weight of the article and the power of Bach's handwriting, and that it would be better after the simple chorale, not during European night, in prep 2 that is. Off to singing, four days in a row now, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 16:40, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

I will set it back to the original image, but I think its not very legible. Maybe you are right. All the best Victuallers (talk) 20:49, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

I'll do my best, but I may need to "oomph" up the image. Its very poor at 100x100 - good singing! Victuallers (talk) 16:47, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your approach! Can we at least show John also, and the upper vivid "black" line. - I think the proposed image doesn't show details but energy - and creates curiosity ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:42, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Nimbus Records.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Nimbus Records.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:07, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Exhausted?[edit]

I don't believe a polite request to ask you to explain your comment is out of order. For some reason I'm not entirely sure about, you seem to be accusing me of lying about where I got that image from. If that isn't the case then an explanation would clear up any misunderstanding. WCMemail 19:32, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry if you have made that assumption. That was not my intention. I am finding it difficult to communicate on this issue and that is my fault I guess. That is why I am exhausted. An image needs to have a source. You seem to be saying that is where you got it from ... I don't dispute that. However when I found the image it did not record the source of the image. Commons may have been "your source" but Wikipedia requires "a source". "A source" is the place it came from originally. Ideally this is the name of the book or the painting or the photographer/date/place etc. This sourcing is what commons gives you. If you decide to not use commons then you lose that benefit. You need to show me how it is going to work without commons if you decide not to use it. (I understand why, I'm annoyed at commons too..... but it doesn't help to just moan about it).

My wish was to get your article onto the main page. I spent sometime adding a source for the picture and finding a ref to support the simplified hook that I suggested. (More work than is usual I suggest - and unappreciated and ineffective work at that). I did feel that I was wasting my time when you asked that I justify my actions and asked me to assist with clearing a hook that I had found problematic. I felt thwarted in my efforts to help, but you should not feel insulted. I am just disappointed that I was not able to get your article onto the main page and I have had to give up. That is a pity and I do hope that your next reviewer is able communicate better than I did. Getting to this point of spending time discussing a failure just adds to my feeling of working for no benefit ... I'm taking a break from approving hooks. Victuallers (talk) 20:16, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

No offence taken BTW I am not a newbie at DYK, I already have a number under my belt as well as contributing to a GA. I am just one of those editors who doesn't feel a need to trophy hunt on my user page.
[3] - Commons link and source to original image ie there was no need to guess as you did. I still see nothing in any policy that would compel me to use Commons and anyway that image was and is fully sourced. If I may offer a constructive suggestion, you weren't clear as to what you were looking for and I could have easily provided it (ie the commons page). In any case the reference to putting the image on Commons merely complicated matters ie I looked but could find no mention in policy it was a requirement. I now assume from your response there is none. For info, the hook is fully sourced in the article, so I am left rather bewildered what you were trying to achieve but no matter I did assume you were trying to help.
Anyway apologies if I have inadvertently added to your wikistress, we work in a medium that is not good for conveying nuance and it is all too easy to misintepret an innocent remark. I hope a break helps. WCMemail 21:20, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Joan Miró Global Challenge — you're invited![edit]

Dear Victuallers,
I am glad to invite you to join us in an international Wikipedia editing party. This event, called Joan Miró Global Challenge, will take place next 10th May, and it will consist of a 10-hour Wikipedia editing party, where wikipedians from all around the world will be welcome to edit together to reach the goal of making 10 key articles about Joan Miró and his artworks available in at least 10 languages. More information about the whole project can be found in this post at the Wikimedia Foundation blog.

As you have already worked on articles about Joan Miró, we thought you might be interested. Also, we would appreciate it if you could spread the word and invite the members of your community to participate. I thank you for your help in advance, and will be happy to help if any clarification is needed.

Best regards! --ESM (talk) 18:52, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Umepedia[edit]

Nice to hear from you. It took its time, with some false starts, to get a good QRpedia project going in Sweden. Although this is not a very ambitious project in itself, it is rather much in control and should be successful as a showpiece that will be noticed by communities, public property owners and other actors on this scene. Some of the prerequisites from your first project are not in hand, but I guess we anyhow have to work on a project approach that may fit to the specific cultural context in Sweden. The cost, material and look of the plates are of course a major issue, which may not be totally perfectly solved, but even here we have specific issues to deal with, like the snow and the harsch winter climate up in Northern Sweden.

One of the major prerequisites of course has been the availability of WiFi connections, as mobile telephone charges for holders of foreign SIM cards still are prohibitive. In the case of Umeå, there is a municipality owned energy corporation which also owns a communitywide fibre network. The deal so far is that there will be free hot-spots in 2014, and hopefully this could be extended if this first project will be favorable assessed by the city authorities.

I keep in memory your presentation on the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin 2012, which of course was an important inspiration event for us. Regards Boberger (talk) 20:56, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

@Boberger - thanks for the feedback. I'm impressed at your self awareness for your project. (e.g. a month is very short). I was going to tell you that you could more ambitious but I realised that you have your own culture. (I worked for a year in Bergen in Norway). The wifi is an issue. It took a long time to get wifi installed in Monmouth, but I suspect that the public would see that as a a real deliverable. Do consider using NFC which can work in parallel to QR codes and it is easier to use. If you are going to "win" the debate with the city authorities then do make sure that you are not counting QR scans, but new article counts is a better measure. Im thrilled to see that my Berlin talk is remembered. Ideas 1) See my talk page in sv - that picture should be on sv:qrpedia page with a link to ubepedia. 2) Make sure you use cc by sa to give attribution to your helpers 3) Are you getting the museums to use this inside their organisations? Why is it not Ubeapedia but ubepedia? Best wishes Victuallers (talk) 21:51, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for tips and insights. Regarding museums I think we are in the brink to get a good museum to use QRpedia. Why Umepedia? The answer is a nice adaption to the dialect in Västerbotten County and other parts of Northern Sweden. Southerners like me pronounce (in "King's Swedish) Umeå and similar geographical names as "ú - me - ó", while Northerners always use the shorter och more rational "ú - mä" with a strong weight on the first syllable. This language custom also is prevalent in official names for many combined name like "Ume(-)älven" (the Ume River) and "Ume(-)bor (residents in Umeå). So, I guess even if we had tried to name the project Umeåpedia, it would had been known as Umepedia anyway.

There actually is another advantage in an international project: you cut the diacritical sign å, which most non-Swedes do not understand properly. The huge Swedish-based contractor Skanska actually was baptized Skånska (from Skåne, the most southern province of Sweden, called Scania in Latin and English). Skånska just dropped the small circle above the a, although this fundamentally changed the pronounciation of the noun of the company. (å in Skånska is like the vocal sound in English all, a in Skanska is like the vocal sound in British English ah! or Alcatraz).

The project page for Umepedia you xill find at https://se.wikimedia.org/wiki/Projekt:Umepedia/Ans%C3%B6kan_om_projektpengar_fr%C3%A5n_Ume%C3%A52014, but it is in Swedish. Boberger (talk) 11:16, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Tom Hulatt[edit]

Victuallers, I've just made sure that this got promoted on the proper day. I'm hoping that you'll provide a QPQ, since anyone who gets a DYKmake credit and also nominates the hook is supposed to do just that. (Indeed, the template shows a "soon" next to the "Reviewed" header, so you knew this when you submitted the nomination.) We could use some reviews right about now. C679 apparently doesn't understand the rules or that distinction, but I didn't want to delay this hook, which would probably make it miss the day. Please let me know which DYK nom you do review. Many thanks. BlueMoonset (talk) 04:42, 6 May 2014 (UTC) Hi : Thanks, although the make credit is not important. I do have lots of reviews I have done which have not been "cashed in". I didn't offer a QPQ as I respected C679's view (if we don't respect the reviewers then they will stop doing the task). I will list a few reviews I have done here which are uncredited. I am trying to avoid doing any reviews as I find the process irksome. Hopefully the project will return to better health. Victuallers (talk) 06:47, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Articles I reviewed from the April 19 queue include Jeanne Immink, Catlow Valley (Oregon), Myrtle_Bachelder, Keith Stanfield, Muslim League (Opposition), Irene Greif or Dayton Project. Take two or three if you like. Victuallers (talk) 16:13, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Glad to know about the extras, and appreciate that you went above and beyond. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:04, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
@BlueMoonset: Sorry, I wasn't aware of that technicality of the rule. The wording at Wikipedia:Dyk mentions QPQ for "self-nominations" but when I checked the article history it had been recently created by a different editor. Anyway I won't claim credit for that review. I'm glad it made the front page on its day though. Thanks, C679 05:05, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Baggböle manor[edit]

Hello. I got an edit conflict after rewriting section three ("Sawmill era"), and noticed that you had edited the article while I was slowly tapping on my laptop. So, since you're clearly a more experienced editor than I am, I'll give you my text, leaving to you to decide if you want to merge it with your text for that section, use my text as it is, or not use it at all...

== Sawmill era ==
The mansion was built at the top of the river bank, overlooking the buildings that were gathered closer to the water, in an area that now holds an arboretum: barracks for the workers, offices, materiel sheds, a blacksmith's shop, a coal house and a boathouse. Neither of those buildings nor the two actual sawmills - the upper built in 1842, the lower in 1850 - with eight water-powered powersaws in each - are, however, left today. All that has been preserved is one of the saws, which has been restored to working order and can be seen in the village of Klabböle, just across the Ume River from Baggböle.
After the heydays of the sawmill at Baggböle - from 1850 to 1880, with at its peak 170 workers in the mill - both the operations and some of the barracks for the workers were moved to a new steam-powered sawmill in Holmsund, the port at the mouth of the Ume River that the lumber was shipped from, while the sawmill and its associated buildings at Baggböle were abandoned and left to rot.

And here's the raw code:
== Sawmill era == The mansion was built at the top of the river bank, overlooking the buildings that were gathered closer to the water, in an area that now holds an [[arboretum]]: barracks for the workers, offices, materiel sheds, a [[blacksmith]]'s shop, a coal house and a boathouse. Neither of those buildings nor the two actual sawmills - the upper built in 1842, the lower in 1850 - with eight water-powered powersaws in each - are, however, left today.

Kent vs Lancashire at Canterbury[edit]

Victuallers, I'm glad you're taking this one on. About "loan" vs. "lend": while loan is a noun, it is also a verb, so "loaned" was correct, as is "lent". (This is in American English; "loan" in verb form may not be as common in British English.) BlueMoonset (talk) 14:32, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

I know "loaned" is used but this was not the only use of the word. (Can't remember the context but its there if you care to inspect). This is a very British article and "lent" is the more correct term.... although I'm not warring? over the verbisation? of nouns. :-) Victuallers (talk) 14:39, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Verbizing (doubtless the American spelling) nouns happens all the time in the many Englishes out there. :-) My impression is that it happens less on your side of the pond than mine, but I could be very wrong about that. (I think the article is fine as you've edited it.) BlueMoonset (talk) 14:46, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Language-specific QR-codes[edit]

Hello Roger. I am writing to you again regarding my question to you earlier this year, about the need for language-specific QR-codes to lead straight to mk.wikipedia (or, a worse but maybe tolerable way - some other means of selecting the langauge directly, before any article opens). You mentioned that you were going to code it, so I thought I should check-up on it to see how far it went, if it did at all. Our chapter here (whose president I am) have at two or three projects for QR-codes and content in the making for many historic buildings in the Old Town of Skopje, the Skopje Zoo and even the City Museum. The mayor will be seeing me about this, and he is quite a precise man, so I'd have to have a ready answer about this issue. Is there a solution for it yet? --B.

Gynning[edit]

Please take a look at the Carolina Gynning article when you got time for it! I will nominate it for GA soon. Thanks.--BabbaQ (talk) 09:53, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker)@BabbaQ: I took a quick look at that article, and it is IMHO very much glorified, almost to the level of being a promo piece (based on my living in Sweden and having been able to follow her career from Big Brother and on, even though I admittedly haven't been spending too much energy on following it...). So IMHO the article needs a rewrite and clean-up to remove exaggerations and peacockery. A small example being that the article describes her house as a "mansion", even though neither of the articles given as a reference describes it as such, just using the word "hus", i.e. "house"/"home". Being a mansion, that is a much larger than average and very luxurious home, isn't even supported by any of the pictures in the articles used as reference. I'm sorry if I'm being negative, but I seriously think that it needs a clean-up in order to qualify as an encyclopaedic biography, and not a promo piece. Thomas.W talk 11:07, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
@Thomas.W:-Thank you for your input. And I agree with you somewhat. But I will remind you that this is not a politician or similar that the article covers. it is a "media personality" and by that I mean that some of the sources plus article content could be viewed as "The Sun Newspaper" material while actually covering the actual events and notable doings by this particular person. What I mean really is that you can not compare an article about a politician and the standard of sourcing etc for example with Gynnings article. Regards,--BabbaQ (talk) 19:56, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Hello BabbaQ, I know she's a media personality, not a politician, so I'm only removing the worst parts of it, correcting blatant errors (such as claims of having starred in a movie even though her name doesn't appear in any promotional material for it; in fact the only places where her name appears in connection with that movie seems to be on user contributed web sites, such as Wikis and IMDB...), and adding a few tags to show where better sources are needed, without removing the insufficiently sourced stuff. Because if we were to apply the full "politician" standards to the article, demanding reliable third-party sources for everything, there wouldn't be more than a stub left of it. But the article does need to be toned down a bit, and it can't be mostly based on claims she has made herself in tabloid interviews. Thomas.W talk 20:17, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Suggestion. If she has claimed she starred in a film and that films material doesnt mention her then we can present these two facts .... which give balance to her article. Victuallers (talk) 21:39, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm assuming AGF. I think that the main two have no idea how DYK works. I think they imagine that QPQ powers it and that is a terrible method to leave in charge (I can understand how one might imagine this as its not made clear how DYK works). I think they need some hints that they are appearing to look silly to the people who still run DYK. No one is that angry.... surely. They will have to AGF eventually and stop insulting the editors and the project. I'm hoping the editors will see that when they say "half-arsed and crappy" .... they mean them and they will defend the Wikipedia method.... that creates errors, improving editors and the best learning resource ever constructed. It is good to see the thank yous that arrive when you edit. Thanks. I am open to more radical suggestions. Victuallers (talk) 13:54, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
You are perhaps more self disciplined than the average. I think one is sincere, just intolerant. The other will stop at nothing in a desperate, sad need for attention. It's kind of embarrassing to watch someone publicly reveal their short comings that way.— Maile (talk) 15:16, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh Im not questioning your diagnosis, put my prognosis is based on the idea that Wiki has won against vandalism, vanity, pundits and stupidity ... and my bet is that it will win again. Sadly it will do them and the project damage until they realise that running in shouting insults is not that inspirational and as you say exposing your own ignorance is going to look very poor as time goes by. Still open to more radical suggestions. Luckily I can talk openly as I'm told my writings are unintelligible see DYK talk). (Could that be due to the reader?)

Alexander Cunningham[edit]

I have serious doubts about the provenance of the supposed portrait of Alexander Cunningham, the archaeologist. That site mentioned as a source is a low-quality blog and when one looks around one finds that the image is taken from http://mcbrideandcunningham.blogspot.com/ and that refers to an Alexander Cunningham who was a brick mason.

Florence Mildred White.[edit]

Hello Victuallers, Thank you for putting forward your views in the Teahouse. I accept you are quite correct in moving my text from my Mildred White article if that is what you wanted to do, but it was a bit of a shock to see parts of my hard work pop up in another article ! And, I have to he honest, I think some of the removed parts are vital in explaining MW in an encyclopedic way. You will see I have had a lot of problems with this article and I am still working on it to improve the 'non primary' sources but it is slow and time consuming, but I continue. I appreciate your offer of help should I get further issues and may well come back to you for advice. TimothyWF (talk) 21:13, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I can see why you included the bits about "the bigger picture" but actually the wiki has very little about the bigger picture in you case. You should be able to make reference to the history of women in Policing in the article and link that to a more detailed description. As it is you had created a very good "stand alone" article .... but the wiki articles are not (meant to be) stand alone. Their wonderful feature is that you can burrow down to find more detail and this means that each article can concentrate on its story. In your case a very important biography.... but she was not the only important player and other organisations were important too. Anyway .... I do appreciate the note and I do realise that the wiki way is a shock..... but thats because it is a new way of working. We can be better than we could be alone. (1000 people will read your text next month in the new improved article - Well done!) All the best. Are you going to be at Wikimania? Victuallers (talk) 21:33, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for all your contributions to Puankhequa.

Thanks again. It will be fun to see what further additions might be. Best, w.carter-Talk 22:26, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
