DYK[edit]

Hi, I hope you don't mind, but I nominated William Cantelo for DYK, to be found here. Thanks, Matty.007 14:04, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

That's fine thanks - it saves me having to do a review! violet/riga [talk] 17:26, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Template:Did you know nominations/Simon Jackson (judoka)[edit]

While the article does mention that he won two tandem cycling events, the article makes no mention of gold medals. It is minor, but it needs to be fixed because it is in the hook. SL93 (talk) 23:32, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry for not noticing that. I have approved the hook. SL93 (talk) 23:42, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

DYK MICHEAL ANABA[edit]

Thanks for the first review. I have had trouble finding one source that confirms both medals but by inference it is true and I have provided sources for that now. Length has been expanded too. CrossTempleJay  → talk 10:22, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Rufus the Hawk may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:
  • grounds for the two weeks of [[The Championships, Wimbledon|The Championships]] and, in 2012, the [[2012 Summer Olympics|Summer Olympics. He has also been employed to scare pigeons away from [[

Re: the Veg Shed[edit]

Articles are not supposed to be created until there is sufficient there to be in the mainspace. You should have written the rest and then saved it, or at least added a source. Two minutes it may be, but if there isn't enough there to justify keeping, I'm inclined to speedy. Rcsprinter (articulate) @ 11:33, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

We're supposed to have a collaborative approach which requires even small, baseline articles to be created. And having something is better than nothing especially as just one sentence was enough to establish notability. Being too quick on the speedy trigger discourages editors, particularly novices. violet/riga [talk] 11:37, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Brazil[edit]

Can you take a look at this exchange and give me your honest opinion, please? Thank you. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 16:14, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

You're certainly right to point out the inappropriate use of "stfu", and the discussion there seems to have progressed in a sensible and agreeable manner. Genre classification can certainly be contentious, and using (the sourced) "dystopian satire" would work well. violet/riga [talk] 19:59, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Good job, I added the coordinates. Haven't done much work on Burma for a few years now and I'd forgotten what it used to be like to excitedly build content for places like that. You might add to Irrawaddy Bridge.♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:56, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

The Duck House[edit]

Hi Violetriga: you signed off on the DYK for this article, but did you check it for copyvio? I don't see that mentioned in your statement at the nomination template, and an editor found copyvio from the referenced source in the plot summary, so I've just had to pull it from the Main Page.

Just a reminder that a QPQ is needed for this nomination. Someone approved it today, though I had to dial it back to a ? icon while the QPQ was still pending. (And I really wanted to promote it, too: it's a great hook.) Whenever you can get it done, I'll take care of restoring the approval. Thanks! BlueMoonset (talk) 05:17, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Beauty micrometer.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Beauty micrometer.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. Stefan2 (talk) 21:40, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Storylines of Neighbours[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Storylines of Neighbours has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article is redundant to the many character/storyline/episode articles available. It contains one source and no out of universe information. I believe WP:IINFO would apply here.

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.
