Pentatone[edit]

So what about albums released as PENTATONE? Are you saying they should be listed as Pentatone, not PENTATONE or Pentatone Classics?

Kirkmc (talk) 15:11, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

@Kirkmc: Yes, albums released though Pentatone should be displayed as "Pentatone", not "PENTATONE". The all caps stylization does not follow Wikipedia's manual of style. ----Another Believer (Talk) 16:14, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Statue of Henry Irving, London, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page National Portrait Gallery. 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.

London Public Art Task Force[edit]

Hi there, I've decided we could do with a central discussion place for public art in London, so I went and created a London task force of WikiProject Public Art. Please join! :) I also copied our conversation to the talk page, so we can continue it there. Ham (talk) 08:54, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

@Ham: 👍 Like Great idea! I added my name. This is certainly a more appropriate place for my/our checklist than your talk page! :p ----Another Believer (Talk) 17:33, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
I've just replaced the discussion on my talk page with a link to the same discussion on WP:PALon, so you won't have to put items in the "done" box twice over now. Ham (talk) 10:23, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Yes, I was just trying to reduce the clutter on your talk page (my fault), but this is the best solution. ----Another Believer (Talk) 14:48, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Royal Marines Memorial[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Royal Marines Memorial, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMDYNH_Royal_Marines_Memorial_London_UK.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details. (If you own the copyright to the previously published content and wish to donate it, see Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials for the procedure.)

--Another Believer (Talk) 22:21, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello, while the bot may not have identified the actual source, (it found a mirror of the source), there is still some close paraphrasing of the source [1]. The inscriptions themselves are ok to include since they're fairly central to the article, but other content such as the descriptions of the engravings can be re-written without changing the meaning or significance. If you wouldn't mind, can you have a look at the source linked and the article content and rephrase the closely paraphrased bits? The copyright case started by the bot is still pending, and the copied content is likely to be cut out if not rephrased. Thanks for your contributions, CrowCaw 15:35, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

A new toy![edit]

Check out what I added to Wikipedia:Meetup/DC! Harej (talk) 02:44, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

And this is what that neat little form produces. Harej (talk) 02:59, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
@Harej: James, this is so great! Close to what I was imagining for this idea. If you have time, would you mind sharing your work on the idea lab project page, perhaps including relevant information such as your process, what this "toy" can and cannot do, etc? I think, ideally, this tool could go one step further and possibly create categories automatically, feature a popup which allows users to insert template parameters, etc. But this is a solid tool already, and something I could not have come up with on my own, so THANK YOU for your work. Do you plan to make this tool available at other campaign/meetup pages, or shall we use DC as a pilot for a while? ----Another Believer (Talk) 14:35, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

License tagging for File:Top Level Design logo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Top Level Design logo.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia. For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 05:05, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek To Cheek LIVE![edit]

Do you think this can be created? Seems it is getting enough third party notability. If you think yes, please create it in a sandbox first. I don;t want bothering AFDs. —Indian:BIO · [ ChitChat ] 12:46, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

@IndianBio: I would say that yes, it deserves an article. That being said, I still think some of the Artpop songs also deserve articles, so perhaps my threshold for separate articles is lower than other people. I went ahead and created the page Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek Live!, which follows WP's manual of style. Looking forward to seeing this article expand! ----Another Believer (Talk) 14:41, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia Monument[edit]

Would you please aks the Foundation? They only allowed the use of the ball - tjere is no plan to send a person to the ceremony. Same with Wikimedia Deutschland. There will be the Vice president Sebastian Wallroth - but not as official, he will be there in private. Wikimedia Poland actually knows also not much about it - it all was made without any chapters. Please take it away. It is not correct. By the way - how you can write in an encyclopedia (!!!) about things that will come? Enyclopedias are there for Knowledge - not for things that could happen. Marcus Cyron (talk) 10:15, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

The article needs to be constructed from information presented by third-party, reliable sources, and it has been. I don't have time to check with the Foundation about representation at the dedication ceremony. ----Another Believer (Talk) 14:47, 10 October 2014 (UTC)
Wow - so your work is worth exactly what? I will attend and I was today at the burp of Wikimedia Deutschland. But you "know" better... Marcus Cyron (talk) 00:58, 11 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, but I am not sure I understand. You are welcome to ask questions, or express concerns about the article on its talk page. ----Another Believer (Talk) 06:29, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jason! Hope this finds you well. I wanted to reach out to see how I can help you to get some of your program evaluations included in this year's round of voluntary reporting. I have in my records that you were involved in the Art & Feminism editathons, is this correct? I know from project pages that you have done some amazing work and been documenting the outcomes. I was wondering if you are the right person to ask for the data gathered from these events? Can you please write back to me to my talk page, or email me to mcruz [at] wikimedia [dot] org? Thanks!

Hello Another Believer. Thanks for giving the thumbs up to our post on the A+F talk page. As you saw, we have written two linked PEG and IEG grants. We have given extensive community notice, but haven’t generated substantial feedback. We would really like your feedback, comments and questions, and if you support the grants, we would appreciate your endorsement of one or both of them. Additionally, we have confirmed International Women's Day, March 8th 2015 as the date of the international editathon. We hope you will be able to participate!
