Tale of the Pipa[edit]

Hi WhisperToMe. Thanks for forking off content from Gao Ming (writer) to create this new page, good idea - and impressive expansion, too! I also approve of the change to the title ("lute" really isn't a great translation of "pipa"; having strummed both instruments in my time I can safely say there are some noticeable differences). One minor niggle; as far as I can see, you haven't placed a {{copied}} template or otherwise indicated that some of the article was created from pre-existing material: would you mind putting something in to comply with Copying within Wikipedia? Cheers, Yunshui  15:24, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Poramadulla Central College[edit]

I will help you to improve the page. There is an article with me written by odhathabandara. That will help you to improve the article. In User:Dendyard/Poramadulla There are names of principals in English and "Affirmation of Oath of School" in sinhalese and the school name in sinhala is "පොරමඩුල්ල මධ්‍ය මහා විද්‍යාලය" Dendyard (talk) 14:43, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

  • We're close to the 1,500 minimum character count for DYK. The place has been around since 1901, so we should be able to find more info. Please consider listing the article at DYK. -- Jreferee (talk) 01:32, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
  • Go ahead and nominate it since there is that 5 day DYK nomination window. The article appears long enough. If not, we can add more. -- Jreferee (talk) 20:29, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I wouldn't want you to think that I don't understand where you are coming from. It's often hard to find the happy medium between enforcing the guidelines and being officious; on the other hand, I could name several good editors who left because they didn't think we were coming down hard enough on vandalism. I do try quite hard to be helpful and I really don't mind being picked up on things now and again - it keeps me on my toes. Thanks again for your suggestions. Deb (talk) 16:55, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Documents[edit]

I left a message at my Talk Page with fuller answers to your questions. The short answer is that policies you asked about are covered in WP:CITEHOW.

BTW, Wikipedia style: we do not have a section of "References" which lists items which are already in the footnotes. See GENREF, Footnotes and References, Further references.

I also have questions about the WP:NOTABILITY of the article De l'un au multiple: Traductions du chinois vers les langues européenes, which is showing up in a number of other articles where it's certainly not notable. But that's for another time. Cheers, ch (talk) 00:27, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Re : SF unified school district[edit]

Interesting! Apparently SF Unified School District has 2 buildings on Franklin (Map). The one I took a photo of is not 555 Franklin st, but 135 Van Ness Ave. I don't know what's the difference between them though. --Ciphers (talk) 19:25, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Article about a Ping Shan Leng Yan, maybe you are interested[edit]

Not much on WP yet about the Beauty-scholar novels, but you seem to be trying to fix that.

Re. Galveston[edit]

Below find your comment left on my talk page, followed by my reply:

"" Hi! I found this discussion: User_talk:RJN#Why_are_you_.22freezing_out.22_anything_referring_to_Galveston I know that the name of the metro area has changed. It used to be Houston-Galveston-Brazoria (1990) and later it became Houston-Galveston-Baytown (2000). Now it's officially Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land because the cities of The Woodlands and Sugar Land have grown immensely. WhisperToMe (talk) 08:25, 3 December 2013 (UTC) ""

My reply: Hi ! Actually you are wrong. The OFFICIAL designation by the United States government is the Houston-Galveston area. Please google "H-GAC" or go here learn the truth. BTW, it is NOT that (the near All-White) The Woodlands and Sugar Land areas have "grown" so, it's the fact the census was taken a couple of years after Hurricane Ike devastated Galveston which caused the displacement of more than 10,000 people ! The recovery is well underway and the population in Galveston is returning. LazLong Sr (talk) 05:48, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

I have no idea what LazLong Sr is talking about. "Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land, TX" is the official name given in this document, produced just eleven months ago. You can't get more official than that. Nyttend (talk) 01:11, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Meanwhile, I have changed all the German titles of the films into their equivalent English ones in my proposed articles' texts. Could you please also change the entries' names accordingly? Apparently, only registered editors can do so. Thanks! 46.116.250.15 (talk) 17:32, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

There's an original poster of Wings at that film's entry in the Russian Wikipedia (and what seem like alternative ones here and here). Could you please add one of those to the corresponding English article? Also, I've found what seems to be the original poster of Das zweite Erwachen der Christa Klages here (plus two images which I'm not sure are really posters here and here), what seems to be the original poster of Flügel und Fesseln here, and what seems to be the original poster of Die Berührte here (alternative version here) and would thank you very much if you could add these too. Since I couldn't find original posters for the following films, are the DVD covers of Unsichtbare Gegner (here), Unter dem Pflaster ist der Strand (here), Mein Herz – niemandem! (here), and Das Erdbeben in Chili (here) a legitimate substitute in your opinion? Thanks! 46.116.250.15 (talk) 18:38, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you so very much for uploading the Wings poster! Someone else has meanwhile added Unter dem Pflaster ist der Strand's DVD cover to that film's article, so there are now only six left to go... Keep up the good work! 46.116.250.15 (talk) 19:07, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

I have marked a section of the plot section (visible in edit mode only) where I want the picture. It reads: "[[Image:|thumb|As Singapore Sling’'s confinement wears on he regains his strength and takes a more active role in the games]]." Many film articles (see, e.g., Persona) use such frames for mere illustration, but if you believe it doesn't pass fair use then I guess no significant harm is done.

Bosnians in St. Louis[edit]

Hi. I was considering making an article about Bosnian-Americans in St. Louis. However, I thought it might be good to include information on Serbs and Croats as well, since there doesn't seem to be enough information for three separate articles. What could that be titled? History of the Balkan peoples in St. Louis? History of the South Slavs in St. Louis? Or would it be best just to include information on Bosnians? I'm not sure how to go about this and thought you might have some ideas. If not, sorry for bothering you. Solar-Wind (talk) 02:23, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Update: There are associations and other organizations for Bosnians, Croats, and Serbs. There is some overlap, but for the most part the organizations are separate. Many of these ex-Yugoslavs in St. Louis came during the 1990s as refugees. There are around 70,000 Bosnians in the city, but I can't find the numbers for Croats and Serbs. The tricky thing is that while many of the immigrants from Bosnia are ethnic Bosnians (Bosniaks/Muslims), some are Bosnian Croats (Catholics) or Bosnian Serbs (Orthodox). So while many are from the country of Bosnia, they may identify with Bosnians as a group or they may identify with their own particular Serb or Croat culture. The identity issue here is complicated, as to be expected with people from the Balkans. Solar-Wind (talk) 12:54, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Affirmative action in China[edit]

There is also a history of affirmative action in China for minorities. During the Qing dynasty, there were quotas for Miao, Yao and Muslim minorities on the Imperial examination especially after the 1784 rebellion by Jahriyya Sufi Muslims, (i'm working on the article about the 1781 and 1784 Jahriyya rebellions at User:Rajmaan/1781 Jahriyya Rebellion, Elman's books here are focused on the examination system in China and he is not a specialist on Muslims in China like historians such as J. N. Lipman or M. Dillon, he mischaracterizes the 1784 rebellion as a "Muslim separatist" revolt (it consisted of mainly just sectarian violence with no intention of "secession", like modern day sectarian violence in Iraq, as the sources at User:Rajmaan/1781 Jahriyya Rebellion show.

The articles on Miao Rebellion (1735–36) and Miao Rebellion (1795–1806) already exist so just link them there if you are going to describe the background.

There is a case in the Taizong Shilu during the Yongle Emperor's reign about Mongol military officers exempted from administrative work because of their illiteracy and still getting paid, so some Chinese pretended to be Mongols to avoid doing work.

These are secondary sources for the illiterate Mongols being exempted from work which you can use in the article as a citation, since the primary source (the statement from the Taizong Shilu) should only be used as a quotation.

Uyghurs in Beijing[edit]

The first Uyghur community in Beijing dates to the Qing dynasty starting in the 18th century, when the Uyghur leaders like Emin Khoja of Turfan allied and submitted to the Qing in order to fight against the Dzunghars in the Ten_Great_Campaigns#The_Zunghars_and_pacification_of_Xinjiang_.281755.E2.80.931759.29. The Qing then built a quarter for Uyghur aristocrats in Beijing near the Forbidden City and a community of them sprang up along with their followers.

Note that they weren't called "Uyghurs", because the name "Uyghur" was applied to these people in the 1920s, see Uyghur_people#Origin_of_modern_nationality. In contemporaneous western records in the 19th century, they called them "Turkish" or "Turk" (it was a common western habit to refer to all Turkic speaking peoples as Turkish until they came up with the word "Turkic" which is nowused in modern academia), and scholars today like Millward call them "East Turkestani" or "Altishahri" instead of Uyghur when referring to them before the 20th century, since calling them "Uyghur" would be an anachorism.

Follow-up regarding Giles[edit]

Greetings, Since our discussion on Giles I have a feeling that maybe most of the primary biographical sources regarding him are still offline/in Chinese? Apparently his chair in Cambridge was renamed in honour of Joseph Needham in 2008 to Joseph Needham Professorship of Chinese History, Science, and Civilization, the current holder being Roel Sterckx. Maybe Sterckx is the best person to query about the available sources regarding Giles, Other eminent sinologists and he himself (Sterckx is definitely notable enough to deserve a GA/even FA). I am guessing that if we ask Sterckx about the potential biographical sources about him, he will not turn us down? (Which academic will not want to see his own page on the front page of Wikipedia!!) What do you think? Solomon7968 07:46, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, User:Fowler&fowler first suggested me to email Michael Witzel directly for references for the article Wales Professor of Sanskrit. Perhaps if we can ask people like Sterckx or Witzel directly then they may help upload their respective University manuscript collections to Wikimedia Commons. That would be incredible! Solomon7968 08:47, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I just emailed Roel Sterckx asking him to point sources about he himself, the Joseph Needham Chair and about Giles. Solomon7968 18:35, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

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.

Feedback on Education in Deming[edit]

Hello WhisperToMe Your article on Deming education I found very good but you see Deming not only gets students from Columbus but also from Palomas Mexico they get kids there as well. So what I think is that the city administrators are behind the school administrators. So I would like to say that Deming does control the public school system.--BrantDaMerc (talk) 10:25, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Nikkey Shimbun[edit]

Sorry, but I've never heard about it. Albeit, it doesn't prevent me from doing a research about it in Brazilian media :) I can tell you if I find something. Cheers, Gabriel Yuji (talk) 03:37, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Well, information on it is somewhat sparse. I could find two reportage on Folha de S. Paulo that mention it:the first stress how São Paulo Shimbun (ja and pt) and Nikkey Shimbun are dealing with the aging of its reader. The other talks about how foreign language newspapers are "surviving" in Brazil. Both are recently (2013), and contain helpful information such as a bit of about the history (the first) and its circulation (the second). I don't know how it helps, but a program Conexão Brasil Japão (Brazil-Japan Connection) interviewed Nikkey Shimbun‍ '​s president in 2003. You're probably wondering why an interview isn't useful, but the news only reports he will be interviewed but sadly don't contain details about it. I also find two articles on O Estado de S. Paulo: one about Toshihiko Nakabayashi who charged Diário Nippak, Nikkey Shimbun‍ '​s predecessor, and other about Jornal Nippak, its version in Portuguese language. A Globo Esporte's article asserts it distributes an award for sportspeople. Sorry, but I couldn't find more anything; I tried Editora Abril, Universo Online and Globo.com's publications (which englobes virtually all Brazilian magazines and sites). Other major Brazilian website, Terra Networks, only returns blog entries. I also unsuccessfully tried to search on other nation-wide newspaper listed here. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 04:16, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I've just remembered to take a look at Folha and Estado‍ '​s collection databases ([18], [19]), but again nothing. At least, nothing relevant on Folha I had zero response, while Estado led me to the two same news I've already mentioned and an article that mentions on its footer that it was also published in Japanese on São Paulo Shimbun and Nikkey Shimbun due to the relation Banco América do Sul (the reportage focus) has with the Japanese colony in Brazil. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 04:30, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Japanese international schools[edit]

Hi, WhisperToMe. Hm... do you know the names of these schools? I can try but I think a random search for Japanese schools in Brazil would hardly result into something relevant. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 19:24, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Well, I've just researched about "Escola Japonesa de Manaus", and only could find an Universo Online subsite news about it. I've found an article about the São Paulo school. There also minor mentions from other (hardly-notable) sources: [20], [21], [22], [23], [24]. There is some coverage from Jornal Nippak (what a coincidence!): [25], [26], but nothing so useful. I've also came across this sandbox, which can be a better idea rather than an article for each (hardly-notable) school. Gabriel Yuji (talk) 01:46, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
Both Japanese in New York and Paris are very interesting articles, and very well done. São Paulo may worth a similar article since it's the city with the highest number of Japanese in Brazil. Sincerely, I have not too much interest on it, but if you want some help I'm here. In the case you find a source in Portuguese and don't understand it can help, but I hardly can help too much.

Proposed deletion of Legendz[edit]

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

No claim of encyclopedic notability is presented. See WP:N. No sources are cited. See WP:RS and WP:V. This article appears to rely heavily on original research which is not admissible on Wikipedia. See WP:OR. A Google search failed to yield any RS sources on the first ten pages of hits.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Legendz until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Requests[edit]

The request page in the Portuguese Wikipedia is this. It is divided by topics. For the school, Education is the right place. Japanese in São Paulo maybe fit on Brazil or International relations topic. The newspaper is more difficult to fit into some topic there; maybe Brazil is the more suitable, but there is also "Other" where it can fit. Cheers, Gabriel Yuji (talk) 18:04, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Hello WhisperToMe. Thank you for tagging an article as a stub. I noticed that you used the {{stub}} template. In the future, it would be greatly appreciated if you could sort the article to a subcategory by using one of these templates instead. For example, you can use {{US-novelist-1960s-stub}} for an American novelist born in the 1960s. Of course, if you can't find a proper category, you can always use the {{stub}} tag and someone else will sort it for you, or you can propose a new stub template or category here. Thanks!

WikiProject Merge[edit]

I am thinking that we should merge Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexican-Americans and Wikipedia:WikiProject Latinos. I have no idea how this works, and since both are fairly inactive (i removed the inactive tags for my editing, but it would be nice to have more people to consider them truly active), I dont know if its worth bothering. If we did, i think the best name would be Wikipedia:WikiProject Hispanic and Latino Americans, and it would be a subproject of Wikipedia:Wikiproject United States, as MEXAM is now. I dont know if we could create the MEXAM as a task force/subproject of WikiProject Hispanic and Latino Americans itself. Since you have done some editing in these areas, any thoughts? you can respond here, i will watch your page.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 05:12, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Houstonia (magazine)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Houstonia (magazine) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Brand new magazine, too young to have become notable yet. No independent sources, except one (which is more about a restaurant critic than about the new magazine). Does not meet WP:GNG.

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.

Requested academic book article?[edit]

Hello again WTM, do you have access to JSTOR? If yes, do you take requests for academic book articles? Solomon7968 05:44, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Re from my talk: I was referring to Harvard Oriental Series (new article). Most of the volumes are translation of Sanskrit/Pali works, but some of them are original monographs. There should be Wikipedia article for all of the original monographs. (I just listed all the available book reviews for A Vedic Concordance (HOS 10); but don't have access to JSTOR, so can't create the article.) Solomon7968 06:15, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Re: Hmm, I would have dropped a Wikipedia:RX request if it were one/two reviews. Asking 6 (or more) reviews for each of the 73 volumes is annoying! Solomon7968 06:27, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Sources about Arab and African immigrant groups to Paris[edit]

Salut!

I've started articles on the Chinese in Paris and the Japanese in Paris but I've had trouble finding sources in English about the Arab and African groups in your city. Do you know of any good French sources about them?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 14:26, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Hi,
I have no information about that. I can only say that there are some chinese in Paris, specially near large shops such as Galeries Lafayette or Printemps. I see them every day. Good for business. Some japanese. And russians. But there are too much arab and african people who lived in Paris. Yes, one century ago, France occupied their countries. It was colonization. But they are free since 60 years and they are unable to manage themselves. Most of their countries are dictature where a few people keep all the money. So they went to France, their former colonizator. Do you know that in France, socialist government started the AME Aide Médicale d'Etat (=governemental medical care). Every stranger in France, including those without any passport is freely cared. Soon, they will be the only people in France who can care. I am in despair... --Tangopaso (talk) 19:37, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi,
Sorry, but I am not interested by this subject. And it is a very sensitive one, because some people think that there are too much strangers in France. Other one that strangers people in France make France lucky. It will not be easy to find objective and neutral documents in France about that.--Tangopaso (talk) 16:08, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. I am going through the schools and the districts in Kansas on Wikipedia and came across Unified School District No. 365. I was wondering what your thoughts were on moving it to Garnett USD 365 to match other school district articles in Kansas here on Wikipedia? Most of the district articles on here have the USD # on here and thought it would be more recognizable. I plan to add an infobox and expand it a little more. Hope to hear you thoughts on it!

Koreans / Metro Detroit[edit]

Thank you for requesting/creating those articles on the school district! I appreciate it, excellent idea.

On an unrelated note, I noticed that you created this category (Category:Ethnic groups in Metro Detroit) and I had previously created this category (Category:Ethnic groups in Detroit, Michigan). Should one be merged into the other? Thanks.

One more thing. I saw that your article on Ethnic groups in Houston includes a section on ethnoreligious groups. Since Copts and Sikhs are both ethnoreligious groups, would it be a good idea for you to mention them in that section? Just a suggestion. Solar-Wind (talk) 23:12, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Whisper. Thanks for creating the article about LGBT culture in Houston.

Please feel free to add your name to the list of participants if you are interested in contributing to this campaign and/or add other articles needing to be created or improved. Perhaps someone will propose a time and location to meet for a Wikipedia meetup. My goal is to work on articles remotely and upload images related to the LGBT community in Houston. Feel free to spread the word about this project! Thanks again, --Another Believer (Talk) 15:54, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Your Photo Request[edit]

Are you still looking for Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Minnesota#Photo request – a photo of Delta Air Lines Bldg. C? I might have one. Mojoworker (talk) 06:53, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

OK, I found them. I took them several years ago when I happened to be at the MSP airport after I saw your request back in 2012, but then forgot about them... Unfortunately, it was late in the day in winter, at a fairly high latitude, so they're not the best photos, but I've uploaded them to Commons: [31], [32], [33], and [34].

Cajuns and Creoles in Texas[edit]

Hello again. I have noticed that there are a number of Cajun and Creole people in Texas, including in the Houston area. I was wondering if creating an article on them would be a good idea? Given the cultural similarities should there be one article for both Cajuns and Creoles or given the differences should there be two? I was considering creating the article(s) myself, unless you would be interested in doing it. If an article or two are to be created, I'll leave it up to you who should do it. Of course, I could start one and you could contribute to it. Thanks. Solar-Wind (talk) 13:43, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for the response, it was helpful. There seem to be enough sources for an article on Cajuns in Texas, but there are fewer sources on Creoles. So, I think for now it would be best to focus on the Cajuns. Hopefully, I can begin working on an article about them sometime within the next few days. Solar-Wind (talk) 14:17, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Photographs and the Spanish language[edit]

I do not know much Spanish (or much of any other language). I use Google Translate if I find a description in another language and want to know what the description is in English. If the translation seems right, I will then add it to the photo description. -Nv8200p talk 12:02, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Completed biographies[edit]

I had seen Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_China#Requested_articles_on_Japanese_scholars_on_China your request. Took me hardly 1 hour or less. You can check them, and I had changed "Masaru Aoki(person)" to "Masaru Aoki" on your post. Because I had asked an admin to delete that page, he deleted, I created this biographical page, and he patrolled it.

Whenever you have any other ideas of notable biographies like these ones, or even history related, you can inform me. Thanks OccultZone (Talk) 11:15, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Korean community in Mexico City[edit]

Thanks for your interest. So far I didn't find any information about the # of Koreans that live in Pequeño Seúl. I agree with you that as the article expands and more information is available, a separate article about the Korean community could be created. At the moment I don't have an interest in doing so, mostly because I am not able to find a lot of resources that tell me anything new. It is still very general information and mostly about the businesses that are there, and not about the people themselves.Keizers (talk) 16:17, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Asociación-Coreana-en-México-멕시코-한인회/151133694957933. There is a website listed there too. I went to my first Korean meal in Mexico yesterday - delicious!

Problematic sources in good articles.[edit]

Hi, Whisper. Since you're concerned with how the use of problematic sources may impact an article's "good article" status, I though you maybe interested in a discussion I'm trying to establish in the subject-related, (currently) featured article Hispanics in the United States Marine Corps. It needs some work on its sources. Any help is welcome. --damiens.rf 18:18, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Colegio Monteverde[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Colegio Monteverde has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No mention of the Cancun or Santiago colleges in their city articles, so no justification for dab page entries, so no need for dab page.

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. PamD 19:05, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

Translation request[edit]

The school page is about the history of the school. I can summarize it. The school had been established as a girls' junior high school (6-8 grades) in 1961-1962 (Levent Kız Ortaokulu, where Levent is the name of the neighborhood) After a new building was built the classrooms were transferred to the new building during the winter vacation of 1968 and the status of the school was redefined as the high school (Levent Lisesi). The name of the school was further changed to Etiler Lisesi in 1981. I hope this helps. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 17:53, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Oriental languages[edit]

Japanese in Ohio: if I remember rightly, Japanese is one of the foreign language options at Benjamin Logan High School, which I would have attended had I not been home schooled all the way through.

Chinese: can you muddle your way through a little Chinese? The image I linked in the discussion, File:Honda in Washington Township.jpg, appears in the Chinese suburb article, zh:郊區. I asked for help at their Help Desk, zh:维基百科:互助客栈/求助, but my original English doesn't seem to have helped, and the Google Translate attempt at Chinese doesn't seem to have been understandable, because nobody's been able to help.

Weird redirects[edit]

You've recently created a whole load of weird, malformed redirects. This doesn't seem typical of you - is someone else using your ID? Deb (talk) 08:47, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

"Plausible" obviously doesn't mean the same to me as it does to you. :-) I wouldn't consider a misspelling to be material for a redirect just because it appeared on one menu. I would be looking for examples of that misspelling occurring in an article, or for there already being a link pointing to that spelling. I don't think most of these new ones fall into the category of "likely misspellings". But I'll leave them. Deb (talk) 09:28, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Arabic Wikipedia and Rami Tarawneh[edit]

Mr. Tarawneh is definitely influential in the Arabic Wikipedia and he was and still is a positive influence to its growth. I truly believe Mr. Tarawneh thinks he is the pioneer in promoting its inception. However, my research into the history of the Arabic Wikipedia have documented proves that there was a group from ArabEyes who volunteered their work to take a leadership role in managing the Arabic Wikipedia long before him. I have provided these sources in the article. Many old timers in the Arabic Wikipedia, whom I have approached, confirmed my findings.

Few days after I presented my findings to the Arabic Wikipedia community, Mr. Tarawneh approached me claiming he was the actual pioneer and that the ArabEyes volunteers were insignificant. Obviously, I asked for any validations to this claim. He could not provide any reliable proof except for an anonymous message from a person requesting assistance to work on the Wikipedia. There is no indication that that person have asked for any leadership role. Mr Tarawneh claims that he was that anonymous person. To me, this is not a reliable claim especially that other documents proves otherwise. The article on Wired was published two weeks after Mr. Trawneh approached me. In the article, Mr. Tarawneh himself claims he was the pioneer and there is no indication that author of the article did any validation. To me, this is not a reliable source I would use to contradict the reliable evidence I have.

The other information I have omitted from the Wikipedia article was the information about the security services which is irrelevant to the topic of the article.

As I have said earlier, Mr. Tarawnah has a lot of deeds to be proud of contributing to the growth of the Arabic Wikipedia. But being the pioneer it is not one of them. I hope this clarifies why I made the changes. --AboluayTalk2me 01:44, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Before I take it to the talk page, I'd like to discuss it further with you one last time. My information is verifiable and it is based on publicly published correspondence between Wikimedia and ArabEyes, the history of the Arabic Wikipedia discussions, the Wikipedia logs, the users talk pages and many other neutral secondary sources. None of them are from primary sources. All of these sources contradicts with the claim of leadership roles mentioned in the Wired article. Can you explain further, please, the confusion in my argument. Appreciated.--AboluayTalk2me 03:33, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
I see. No, I haven't approached Wired and maybe I should. I will educate myself further about the English Wikipedia policies and approach you, although I hate to be a lawyer (I hope you are not a lawyer ;)
Until then, here are some suggestions to go forward:
  • The phrase "Contributors encouraged him to start an Arabic Wikipedia" is incorrect. The Arabic Wikipedia was started by the Wikimedia German User group by mandate of the Foundation and was not initiated by any Arab individual.
  • The phrase that starts with "By 2005, there were fewer than 20 contributors" till the end of the paragraph should be incorporated into the sentence that starts with "However, in 2005..." this will give more meaning to the flow of the history.
  • In the sentence, "Therefore Tarawnah and other..." I suggest to replace it to say "The volunteers worked on recruiting new users". Choosing one name over others is not fair for the others.
Do you see these suggestions acceptable? --AboluayTalk2me 04:35, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Kweilin Incident[edit]

Thank you. BTW I came across some English-language sources that seemed to suggest a Japanese Intelligence plot to murder Hu Yun, Chairman of the Bank of Communications, who was killed in the incident. But the sources are thin - behind Google Snippet, or a blog-like translation from a Chinese source. There may be better sources in Chinese but I don't read it. One possible avenue for expansion. Regards, -- GreenC 20:58, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

And thank you bringing it to the attention of other Wikis, and supporting the seemingly controversial "shootdown", which I was afraid would happen and could flare up again. The sort of thing that drives literal-minded readers nuts but is the nature of language and writing of history. Would rather see more attention paid to the historical significance (for China, Japan, US and airline industry). The dramatic minute by minute sequence of events of the crash seems to grab the interest but is really the least important aspect (other than the fact it was destroyed). -- GreenC 16:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't know about Hu Yun because that was added by 65.78.12.78 .. who also did the Chinese version. -- GreenC 17:53, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Just have a few questions before adding the information. Was Sonom a "King" of the Gyalrong people (嘉绒人), or just a "Tusi" or chieftan of ethnic Gyalrong background? Sonom did not really declare himself a king. Theobald's chapter said Sonom was a lord-lama of Greater Jinchuan (instead of "lord-sama" in the current version), but I wonder if he is actually referring to Tusi of Greater Jinchuan (大金川土司/促浸土司).

LGBT SF[edit]

Actually, i dont think you need to prove that lgbt cultur in sf is notable. its patently notable. what i was saying is that the sparseness of the current article doesnt itself show that the subject is notable to a reader, who would expect so much more even for a beginning article. Such a stub article as you have created would be better off as a sandbox page connected to your userpage, until it has enough information to be useful, and shows some of the depth and history of the community there. I mysel have wondered why no one had created this article before, but when i considered creating it, i realized it was a HUGE subject, and that anything i put together would be extremely limited. so i didnt even try. congrats for being willing to try. another option would be to add a subsection at San Francisco. I would also consider doing a keyword search here for all articles with both SF and LGBT in all their forms, and at least create list of all relevant articles. Again, my concern is not having a stub which doesnt begin to convey the full subject, which then looks too poorly writen and possibly turns off readers. good luck with expansion, and please consider turning it into a redirect to SF, and working on it at a userpage first. perhaps the LGBT wikiproject could help collaborate on a userpage draft you present them.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 19:49, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Mexico city portal[edit]

Im so much not a fan of closing debates when, say, only the nominator and the creator have discussed it, with maybe 1 or 2 others. If if matters to you, please feel free to dispute it or reverse the redirect. Im not going to worry about it. The truth is, if had any motivation right now, i might actually add content to it. i just have no motivation to do any editing. I do agree, of course, that if ANY city deserves a portal, its this one, along with paris, tokyo, nyc, rome and paris.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 17:48, 18 October 2014 (UTC) @Xaosflux: @Harrymph: Mercurywoodrose, the nominator of Wikipedia:Miscellany_for_deletion/Portal:Mexico_City, seems to not like the result after all. I want to say "no" and reverse the redirect and start work on the portal. What am I supposed to do here? If I just revert and add more content will I be seen as going against the result? WhisperToMe (talk) 22:49, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Here's my recommendation if you want to build a new Mexico City portal: start it in a user sandbox. There is nothing inherently wrong with portals for large cities (e.g. Portal:Miami). Once you think it has enough content to be viable, the entire structure can be move to the primary Portal space. — xaosflux Talk 23:50, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: So, will all components of the portal "move" when I move this portal from the userspace? Will it be complicated when I try to transfer the contents? How much effort should I put in until the portal is "complete"? Who decides this? I would say few people even know how to make portals and how it takes even more effort than writing an article. There should be a "stub standard" for an undeveloped portal where, instead of trying to delete incomplete portals, the community decides "it's a wiki, add to it!" WhisperToMe (talk) 00:00, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm not going to get in to the editorial aspects of this, however from a technical aspect, all the subpages etc will be able to move, and should be linked relatively (not directly) to the other pages to facilitate this. (See User:Xaosflux/Sandbox14 for example of relative linking). — xaosflux Talk 00:06, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Indo-Canadians[edit]

I mentioned the issue with editors' conduct there because I wanted to point at it being an obstacle for constructive discussion about article's content. Continuing conduct discussion there and additionally clogging that article's talkpage would not be productive, so I will reply to that part of your comment here, if you don't mind.

  1. Straw man - Somebody who don't AGF might see your reply there (diff) as some kind of straw man fallacy. I pointed to several different issues:
    • wrong tag
    • issue with comments of both editors, including yours'
    • and your creation of new article contrary to valid objection of other editor)
      • You ignored my first two objections and defended only the third one defending your position without presenting any policy based argument:
      1. A - to show Skookum that you are not ignoring rest of the province you created POVFORK instead to resolve dispute by reaching the consensus. I think that this explanation of yours is insult to common sense.
      2. B - to demonstrate that topics are distinct. Same insult as A. Another editor objects to your point of view, but you still implement it to demonstrate they are wrong.
      3. C - same as B.
      4. D - even more insulting for common sense than ABC
      5. E - this is your only policy based argument. BLP. Which I never mentioned and I think is completely irrelevant in this case. Will you please be so kind to address the first two issues I pointed at?
  2. Bibliography. Presenting the bibliography does not authorize anybody to impose their point of view contrary to objections of other editors.
  3. First step: Actually, your first step was not presenting the bibliography. Your first step was provocative snide patronizing comment "Oops. I didn't mean to imply that I'm of Indian heritage. I'm not of Indian heritage. Nonetheless, I have a revelation that you may be interested in. Let's discuss a lovely thing called WP:GNG." and you continued with similar tone throughout the whole discussion.
  4. Precendent: I don't think there is such a thing as the "precedent" at wikipedia, which is probably the WP:OTHERSTUFF type of argument.
  5. My desire At the end you ask me if "I want" something to be done. You even italicized "you want". Why? I don't see any reason for such attitude which I find inappropriate. I don't want anything. As I explained in the first sentence of my comment "I came here based on the request posted by WhisperToMe at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ethnic groups." Not because I want something. I might be completely wrong here. Wikipedia is based on collaborative efforts. Maybe some other editors will convince me that I was completely wrong, by presenting valid arguments. I just presented my honest opinion based on your post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Ethnic groups and I don't have anything else to add to it for now. All the best.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 11:48, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
  • I am disapointed with your comment. To make matters worse, you formated it as a list so somebody could be mislead to believe that you actually addressed my concerns point by point. I love when somebody prove me I was wrong. Unfortunatelly that is not the case here:
    1. Number 1 refers to your straw man alike reply in which you completely ignored other issues I pointed at (i.e wrong tag) and replied to one of them, without any policy based argument except completely irrelevant BLP. Instead to acknowledge this, you implied that my comment number 1 is actually a POVFORK accusation and instead to address my concerns from comment number 1 about your straw man alike comment you "sucessfully" dealt with point 1-A.
    2. Number 2 - Bibliography - not addressed at all.
    3. Number 3 - You blame another editor for your problematic behavior, adding flag waving fallacy on top of it. The worst possible reply.
    4. Number 4 - Same as bibliography. Just because you pointed to otherstuff and proclaimed it as precedent does not authorize you to impose your point of view contrary to objections of other editors. Expecially if that kind of argument was unconvincing for other editors. No doubt you have heard about WP:DR.
    5. Number 5 - In discussion about merger I think your comment about "my desire" was not appropriate, whatever your intentions were. I think I gave clear explanations for my opinion about your conduct and I don't have anything to add to it now. All the best.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 18:13, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations 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".

Jimfbleak - talk to me? 07:06, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm a little staggered by a request for deletion and the virulent rash of tags out of the blue. There appears to be little application of WP:AGF here and I certainly did not intend to contribute to or create an advertisement. I've added information, always cited, wherever I've managed to dig it up - and spent quite a lot of my own time on this article (and others about the UAE, often suffering from similar neglect). If it requires cleanup, that's fine - although I thought I'd been at pains not to create a hagiography - it was a sketchy mess that totally contravened WP:BOLP when I first came across it. So what's a good way forwards? Alexandermcnabb (talk) 08:49, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Help on an article[edit]

Hey WhisperToMe,

I'm wondering if you had any advice on how to improve this draft for Mochi Magazine, an online publication for Asian American young women. I'm reaching out to you since you've really expanded articles related to Asian Americans. I feel like it's a notable influential media source, although I'm having a hard time finding secondary sources on Mochi. Maybe you could give me a few pointers on how to craft a solid more neutral article.

Thanks for your time, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Mochi_(magazine)


Hi I know it's been a few months since I reached out. However, I would appreciate your help if you could help me find sources. I'm having a hard time finding them and would love further help or tips. Hope you are well!Kathykpham (talk) 00:17, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi,
I did work for you these days :

  • I made a photo of 190, avenue de France, Paris 13th arrondissement. In this building, there is the library of the FMSH : fr:Fondation Maison des sciences de l'homme. Recent building. I do not wish to upload it onto French wikipedia, because I do not appreciate the works of FMSH. They made a copy/paste from their website. Let them upload photo if they want to do that.
  • 3 Rue Castéja, Boulogne-Billancourt - Hotel where Deng Xiaoping stayed. The hotel has been destroyed. There is now there a recent ordinary appartment building.
  • fr:Renault_HQ.jpg and File:Renault_HQ.jpg. Recent (and nice) building. Please check fair use templates.
  • fr:Carrefour_HQ.jpg and File:Carrefour_HQ.jpg. Recent building. Please check fair use templates.

What's the similarity between Aeroperu and today's air crash[edit]

Besides both happening at sea? If we're talking aircraft lost for long periods of time or never found after crashing at sea, I could name Canadian Pacific in 1951, Varig in 1979, Northwest in 1963 , and more....William 22:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi! The Aeroperu jet had a problem with its puto static system (its port was covered by duct tape) and it became confused and crashed for that reason. It was found in the sea fairly quickly after the crash. In that sense it's like AF447 WhisperToMe (talk) 22:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Transferred your comment here to keep the thread together. We don't know its Pitot tubes yet....William 22:16, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Excuse the intrusion. If you are talking about the AirFrance crash over the Atlantic, both involve an Airbus. Involved Petot tubes in that one. There are real issues with the automation and pilot competency. There were potentially problems as they get to the top of the craft's flight envelope. There was a great article in The Atlantic (as I recall) on the issue. Worth the read. It's on line. Sorry to butt in. Regards. 7&6=thirteen () 22:19, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

AF447 is a flight few people have trouble recalling. I just put in links to 3 Pacific/Asia crash articles involving flights lost at sea. A Varig 707 in 1979, Northwest in 1963 and Canadian Pacific in 1951. I'm going to take my shower now, cook, and watch hockey.

Tarek El Aissami[edit]

Hi. I see you created Tarek El Aissami. The Gatestone Institute, a very serious think tank headed by former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton says he was born in Lebanon. The article already has a reference suggesting he was born in Venezuela, however. Should I just change it? I would trust Bolton more tbh.Zigzig20s (talk) 14:28, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Are you able to find more references?Zigzig20s (talk) 16:06, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
I guess we would need confirmation from the US embassy in Venezuela or State Department. Would you try to e-mail them? I am not a US citizen, so they probably wouldn't reply to my e-mail.Zigzig20s (talk) 16:20, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, if you read both the WSJ article and Gatestone Institute post I cited, you will see that his national allegiance is potentially contentious, yes. He sounds like a very strange man, especially from the WSJ article. It is possible, however, that the Gatestone Institute post is wrong (it's not not well written, which is surprising). How do you know Bolton is no longer with them? Their Wikipedia page still says he is their Chairman. (Update it if you are able to find a reference please?)Zigzig20s (talk) 16:52, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Given how weird he sounds, I don't really want to comment on his talkpage lol. (I don't want to attract unwarranted attention from weirdos). But I do think the page should be expanded--he sounds fairly prominent, attending high-level conferences, etc. Maybe you know other editors who would do a better job than I did. I just hope what I added will not be removed/censored. I usually try not to edit security-related articles on Wikipedia--frankly I don't think I am qualified for such serious topics. I use Wikipedia to relax and focus on historic buildings, polo, etc. I guess as Donald Rumsfeld once said, his birthplace is an unknown known! Cheerio.Zigzig20s (talk) 17:03, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Miriya Parina Sterling[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Miriya Parina Sterling has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The coverage (references, external links, etc.) does not seem sufficient to justify this article passing Wikipedia:General notability guideline and the more detailed Wikipedia:Notability (biographies) and Wikipedia:Notability (fiction) requirement. If you disagree and deprod this, please explain how it meets them on the talk page in the form of "This article meets criteria A and B because..." and ping me back. Thank you,

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.

Je suis Charlie[edit]

Thank you for your message. Yes, its an awful event. But there is also a lot of hypochrysy :

  • The attacked newspaper Charlie hebdo was in a very bad economic situation. People were not very interested by it. The newspaper sells 60.000 newspapers a week.
  • Why other newspapers in the world do not publish the caricatures of Mahomet (which are at the origin of the threats against Charlie hebdo) ? Because they are afraid and do not dare ! These newspapers may pay royalties for the drawings to Charlie habdo in order to let Charlie hebdo go better and better.
  • Our president François Hollande has failed. Unemployment grows (10%). French debt also. The president has been asked "Are you on the right way ?". He answered : "We will see at the end of my presidence" (!). He has decided to dont work anymore about economy but about ecology (!) and for the international conference in december 2015. So I am sure that he is delighted to have a subject to speak about. However, for these problems of terrorism, the president doesnt do anything : interior ministry and police do the job. But our president may gently speak.
  • During the greetings for the new year, the president said : "when Frenchmen are gathered, France wins". And now with these events, the president says that Frenchmen must be gathered themselves after these awful events. He speaks, he speaks and the economy of France get worse and worse.

international school stubs[edit]

Hallo, while stub-sorting I've found a lot of recent international school stubs which you've created. I wonder if you'd consider adding a specific stub tag? For almost every country "{{countryname-school-stub}}" is a valid template. Could I suggest that you add that, instead of {{stub}}, and if it comes back as a non-existent template then leave it as the plain "stub" and a stub-sorter will sort it. That way you'd take the routine cases out of the workstream, with just a few more keystrokes from you, rather than someone else opening the file, editing, adding an edit summary, saving it. How about it? Thanks. PamD 11:23, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Hallo again - could you please remember that stub tags go at the end, after categories, not before them? Per WP:ORDER. Makes it easier for stub-sorters or anyone else to find them, and saves stub-sorters the bother of moving them to the right place. Thanks. PamD 11:32, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

@PamD: Hi! Sorry... I thought that the stub tag goes before the categories. I'll remedy this and put the stub tags after the categories. As for the specific stub tag I'll remember countryname-school-stub and use it from now on! Thanks for the notice! WhisperToMe (talk) 14:36, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

"Anglophone" re schools/school districts[edit]

Please take out "Anglophone" from your peppering of articles with that as you have been doing today; it sounds odd outside of Quebec, and belies the fact that nearly all school districts have French immersion programs, and also native-language and other-language programs/certifications. The term has a POV ring to it, and is part of central Canadian/Quebecois language politics.

If you're going to improve/expand education sections with francophone-oriented content you should look at all items here e.g. Burnaby's French immersion programs, Central Okanagan SD's French immersion programs - note the high school, among others.Skookum1 (talk) 07:01, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Schools, including Deux Rives, should generally only be redirects to the governing school board, or in that case the governing organization, the societe francophone. Unless a school has notability e.g. incidents, architecture, etc in its own right, they are supposed to be redirected and do not warrant stand-alone articles. I like others who live and have lived in BC know that French immersion has been offered for a long time because my friends' kids and my nieces' and cousins' kids take it......but to you, that's "original research"...but some better googling and learning our terminology would have been a good thing before you started adding a POVism and rather POVish content, however minimal; and Category:French-language_schools_in_British_Columbia is there, but again, that is mistitled as those are not language schools teaching French, but schools where French curriculum is available.Skookum1 (talk) 07:08, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

also note, and this will differ from town to town, SD to SD, Punjabi programs Chinese programs Aboriginal education programs and more.Skookum1 (talk) 07:11, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Never mind, I just spent 40 minutes picking up after you as I know you will disregard my advice as you have before; those sections do need information on French immersion and Punjabi/aboriginal/European/Asian language programs which apparently you didn't even consider might exist when you imposed the Quebec-ism "Anglophone" on them.Skookum1 (talk) 07:55, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Canadian school system[edit]

Regarding this discussion: the terms Anglophone/Francophone and English/French are not equivalent (the first set of terms refer to the first language one learns to speak), and even in Quebec it is more common to refer to English/French schools. Thus I believe using the terms English/French is more instructive for readers.

On a side note, constitutionally, the provinces were guaranteed the right to organize schools along denominational lines; Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador sought and obtained amendments to organize them along linguistic lines for the former, and a single non-denominational board for the latter. isaacl (talk) 14:51, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Skookum1[edit]

Can we please put an end to this feud? I have no idea who started it or why, and I don't care, but it needs to stop. I've just asked Skookum what it would take to end this, and now I'm asking you. Any ideas? I've just told Skookum that I think your age differences are contributing to the communication problem. Viriditas (talk) 06:05, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

@Viriditas:, thank you for the message. It's not only his perception of the age difference, but that he believes I as an outsider (not from British Columbia) have less authority than him in the topics he edits. Another factor is that I was a "newcomer" to the topic (initially I didn't know the proper vocabulary for "Indo-Canadian").
1. Others (not only me) told him that what is written in reliable sources is the deciding factor on what gets included, what the name of an article should be, and what the scope of the article should be... not where someone is from, or who they know, or how old someone is. He should be comfortable with allowing people younger than him and not from where he is to have a say in substantial decisions about the topic. Absorbing those attitudes I think would go a long way. I also think that if he reviews the exact words of WP:OR (WP:OR does not mean a "lie" but it means information not published in books/articles) it will go a long way.
2. I also suggested he follow the requirement for page citations for specific facts in books (it not only applies to quotes, but any fact that can be challenged). Pagecites are often necessary when trying to resolve content disputes. He does not possess any of the books he's citing from, so it's impossible for him to do the pagecites required by WP:V. I used a thread at Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard#Are_.22page_cites.22_required.3F to show him this. I suggested that he get access to these books so he can comply with that portion of WP:V. I would also suggest that he follows the requirement that the person making the claim has the responsibility of providing sources
3. Even though it is true some people have short attention spans, he should still write replies that are on-target and concise so people are not intimidated by the size of what has been written (hatting long lists and referring to other posts may help reduce lengths of replies).
If he's willing to stop and reflect on these matters I will be happy to work with him after a two-week voluntary break on my end. I know he knows a lot about Canadian subjects and his knowledge is very useful. He does have a perception that there are certain sources being neglected in modern academia: I am open to using those sources after reviewing them and determining what they directly support.
WhisperToMe (talk) 06:35, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Will you contact me when you return from your break? Enjoy yourself, and I hope everything works out for you. Viriditas (talk) 10:08, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: I'll be happy to do that. Thank you :) WhisperToMe (talk) 14:29, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

I've commented about the use of page citations here. After reading the talk page comments, I'm convinced that Skookum1 can benefit from your guidance on how to best use sources. Part of the problem comes from him not having access to these sources. I realize that you've offered to share some sources, and I'm hoping I can help him use online sources like Google books to solve part of the problem. Viriditas (talk) 02:54, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

@Viriditas:

I'll be happy to provide research tips. I have three parts: Google Books, academic journal articles, and archival services.
Google Books and books in general:
  • 1. With Google Books you can use quotation marks to get phrases rather than separate words. For example, "Chinese in Kamloops" gets exactly that phrase.
  • 2. Check the publisher of the book you are citing. If it's self-published or it's a Wikipedia mirror, don't use the book. If the publisher meets the criteria for a reliable source, that's great.
  • 3. If the book you are trying to cite uses "snippet view" you can manipulate Google Books to get more of the key phrases/sections you need. Document the URL and the excerpt of the book, whether it appears on a search result page or whether it is on an actual snippet. If a phrase appears on a search result, you can "search inside the book" for a piece of the phrase and get more of the phrase. If it's from inside the book, you can search for a piece of the phrase in the Google Books search engine and get more of the needed phrase. An example of me doing this may be found here: es:Wikipedia_discusión:Consultas_de_borrado/Liceo_Mexicano_Japonés#Fragments_of_the_book. You don't need to link to every URL from the Wikipedia article itself, but you can keep track of the Google Books snippets on talk pages.
  • Remember you may ask for select pages or chapters of books from the Resource exchange at Wikipedia:RX. Also my offer to give you select pages of In the Sea of Sterile Mountains still stands.
Journal articles and newspaper articles:
  • I like to search for journal articles and newspaper articles on university websites that have search engines open to the public. For example, University of Houston search engine and University of Southern California search engine. These search engines allow you to filter your results by type. For example if you want to write about a book you can filter it by "reviews" or "book reviews". It also helps to get DOI numbers of any reviews if possible, so here is a DOI number search engine. That can make it easier for people to find the requested articles. Remember some articles don't have DOI numbers.
  • Once you assemble the list of requested journal articles and newspaper articles make a request at Wikipedia:RX. A volunteer may e-mail you the requested articles and/or send a download link to you.
  • http://reddit.com/r/scholar is another place where you can get journal articles or newspaper articles that you may not be able to access. You may also ask at specific subreddits of particular universities. I got excerpts of a master's degree thesis from the University of Southern California and that was crucial in rescuing the Spanish Wikipedia article: es:Liceo_Mexicano_Japonés. Be sure to follow the subreddit rules and submit your requests to the correct places. If a Redditor is very helpful you can give her or him "Reddit Gold" as a thank you.
Archiving
  • If your resource is publicly available on the World Wide Web, it's good to have it archived so it can be accessed in the future. You may go to http://web.archive.org and ensure that the Internet Archive has a copy of the page. If not, submit the page to the "Save Page Now" query.
  • Please also use http://webcitation.org and submit the link there too. Keep track of the archive URL and include it in the citation. Remember that archive dot today links are not permitted on the English Wikipedia, but you can independently add the article there without linking to it if it is a plain HTML page or an image.
I hope these tips are helpful. If there are any other questions (even when I'm on break) I'll be happy to answer them.
WhisperToMe (talk) 00:42, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: In regards to sending the pages, I meant sending via e-mail the pictures I took of the pages with my cell phone. It's not necessary to snail-mail photocopies. WhisperToMe (talk) 07:30, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh, no need to explain. I was one of the first Wikipedians to do that back in 2006. Viriditas (talk) 07:56, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh, ok. No worries! WhisperToMe (talk) 08:36, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

@Viriditas: If you wish for me to use Dropbox let me know. I'm sorting the pages (giving the images appropriate filenames). If this approach is best: I can first upload the table of contents, index, chronology, and list of sources other than newspapers. That gives the "skeleton" of the book away. Then I can send, as requested, the content pages I do have (I list the pages I have, and any one of those pages may be requested). If there are desired pages that are not in the collection I can go back and try to photograph more pages. WhisperToMe (talk) 18:16, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

I just think if you and Skookum1 are going to share files, that's the best way at this point. I'm not sure what's going on now on Skookum1's end. I tried to have a discussion with him, and I made it perfectly clear that I would not discuss more than one topic at a time, but he couldn't follow that simple rule, so I've given up at this point. My main concern with Skookum1 at this point is civility, because if he keeps going down this road he's going to get blocked. Viriditas (talk) 04:47, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
I'll tell @Moonriddengirl: that I am ready to share my files. @Viriditas:, thank you very much for your efforts. I really appreciate them! WhisperToMe (talk) 04:51, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
To Moonriddengirl: Since I want to respect laws, I want to ask Skookum exactly what pages he wants the most because I can't share too much of the book at one time. I wish to follow protocol from WP:RX. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:01, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello, WhisperToMe. Finding out what pages he wants seems like a good approach. In terms of respecting laws (IANAL), I wish there were some specific numbers available, but fair use is a slippery definition - alters according to what you share, where you share, how you share and why. I am more comfortable personally with sharing reference materials privately than I am posting them. For instance, there have been occasions in the past when I needed access to a source to check for copyright problems and somebody has emailed me a copy of an entire academic article for me to look at. After comparing, for that purpose, I deleted the file. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 12:35, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
FWIW, Dropbox is private depending on how it is shared. IOW, if Whisper sends the dropbox link to Skookum through the Wikipedia mailer, nobody else will have access to it. Viriditas (talk) 01:37, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: @Moonriddengirl: Thanks, guys! I have the dropbox link ready to send via private e-mail WhisperToMe (talk) 04:20, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: @Moonriddengirl: Dropbox link sent with the table of contents, chronology (it states which historical facts are in which chapter), sources other than newspapers, and index so he knows the architecture of the book. After he obtains those materials, I've offered to send up to one chapter (or maybe two) or the equivalent (but now I'm wondering if it will be too much). The book has an introduction and ten chapters. WhisperToMe (talk) 07:43, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

About your (non)participation in the January 2012 SOPA vote[edit]

Hi. I am Piotr Konieczny (User:Piotrus), you may know me as an active content creator (see my userpage), but I am also a professional researcher of Wikipedia. Recently I published a paper (downloadable here) on reasons editors participated in Wikipedia's biggest vote to date (January 2012 WP:SOPA). I am now developing a supplementary paper, which analyzes why many editors did not take part in that vote. Which is where you come in :) You are a highly active Wikipedian, and you were active back during the January 2012 discussion/voting for the SOPA, yet you did not chose to participate in said vote. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me why was that so? For your convenience, I prepared a short survey at meta, which should not take more than a minute of your time. I would dearly appreciate you taking this minute; not only as a Wikipedia researcher but as a fellow content creator and concerned member of the community (I believe your answers may help us eventually improve our policies and thus, the project's governance). PS. If you chose to reply here (on your userpage), please WP:ECHO me. Thank you! --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 15:00, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Hey WhisperToMe, any chance you could help me out with this? Few more responses would really be very valuable to me. As the 23rd most active Wikipedian, your input really does matter. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 16:19, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Vancouversplit[edit]

I just wanted to say that User talk:WhisperToMe/Vancouversplit is looking pretty good. I realize you may have a preference for formatting and style that I may not, but I think the use of deep nested subsections and small paragraphs is less than ideal. However, I'm sure this is just a draft and is likely conducive to expansion, so don't mind me. :) Viriditas (talk) 01:14, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Apparently, this innocent comment encouraging you to keep up the good work set Skookum off, and he's now gone off the deep end, with attack after attack against me. Because he refuses to be brief and address one subject at a time as I previously requested for the purposes of readability, I've moved his attacks to his own talk page.[36] Normally, I would request a block for this kind of behavior, and as you can see from his block log, this isn't the first time he's done this. If you can raise this problem with another admin, I would appreciate it. Apparently, asking him to take his concerns to the DRN noticeboard made him even angrier.[37][38] He is certainly welcome to act like a nut on his own time, but he's not allowed to do it here. This kind of unhinged behavior is not conducive to building an encyclopedia. I get that he has personal problems, but Wikipedia isn't therapy. His attempt to play the victim in all of this is sickening. Anyone who has to wade through his egotistical screeds knows that the real victim is anyone who takes the time to reply to him. Enough is enough. Viriditas (talk) 00:37, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: I notified somebody about this. WhisperToMe (talk) 02:17, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Moonriddengirl hasn't been active (with that account at least) since 18 February 2015. I have no problem ignoring Skookum's bad behavior, but he's clearly unwell at this point and shouldn't be editing Wikipedia. Any normal person who reads the comments he made in the context of my comments to you and my participation as an informal mediator will realize this. He's sick and needs professional help that can't be offered here. Viriditas (talk) 04:32, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
@Viriditas: I notified another admin, Yunshui, here. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:06, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
"Bad behaviour"?? What is wrong, in terms of policy, of applying policy i.e. NPOV, and cleaning up incredibly poor English composition in all its repetitive clunkiness? What's "not conducive" to building an encyclopedia is direct and ongoing violations of NPOV, and the creation of a blatant POV fork; as for this rank NPA "This kind of unhinged behavior ....I get that he has personal problems, but Wikipedia isn't therapy" that deserves redress, and apology; I've tried to raise direct quotations of policy that you BOTH are in violation of, and you go on about me being a problem .... of having "personal problems".
Good grief, the "personal problem" I have a problem with is the totally offensive POV tone of WMT's creations and, as proscribed by the NPOV and POV fork policies, being treated like shit and slandered about my work to FIX the gross violations re BC history, violations of both policy and guidelines that are now being recreated and perpetrated in a deliberate POV fork. The word gaming about "there is no POV" and "there is no POV fork" apparently stem from a lack of comprehension, or even reference to, WP:POV fork which is very clear about what a POV fork is, and this little sandbox project to sidestep consensus on existing articles is in direct violation of that policy, and of NPOV, which is just as paramount as Verifiability, which does not take precedent over it; the WP:V issue about page-cites is entirely instruction creep/SYNTH and does NOT take precedent over respecting NPOV.
I've been finding sentences with redundant phrasings, needless excess words, outright bad grammar; never mind trivial non sequiturs tossed into the "composition"without any regard to context; and even less to NPOV.
IMO you BOTH have "personal problems", chief of which is your inability to recognize your own failing about the NPOV policy; never mind respecting an editor with broad experience with the subject, and with sources, which are being shut out on spurious grounds because they do not "fit" the POV construct/agenda of WTM's ethnopolitical treatise; THAT is specifically mentioned on the WP:POV fork page and in the NPOV policy, also.
"Disengage" apparently means "let's go off and build a sandbox to replicate all the POV that Skookum1 objects to". Normally I would not comment here due to the "disengage order" but given the completely offensive NPA that Viriditas has just made, and his refusal to discuss the NPOV policy and the POV problems of the content, this comment had to be made here.
Lobbying for another ANI to harass me with is just more of the same; whether I take this to ARBCOM or to the POV discussion board I haven't decided yet; in the meantime I'm simply fixing bad English construction, commenting on gaffes in the sources, or absences of context and/or renderings of material that are blatantly POV in nature. I'm following policy. Neither of you are.Skookum1 (talk) 05:11, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Yunshui's response @Viriditas: WhisperToMe (talk) 09:39, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for trying, WhisperToMe. I have no stomach for ANI at the moment, as there is more cluelessness found there than anywhere else. I did notice, however, that the AN/ANI archives are full of incident reports highlighting the same problems with Skookum's behavior, all pointing to WP:DIVA as the cause. So for the moment, perhaps we should stop feeding the diva and ignore him. Viriditas (talk) 09:42, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Weekend schools[edit]

Hi there. I appreciate that the schools you added are legit and I get that they are government funded. Problem is where do we draw the line? These lists have schools that act as full-time education providers, and I think that if we start adding part-time schools the scope and relevance of the lists will be diluted. If that one goes in I can imagine other editors wanting to add weekend drama schools, dance schools etc based on the fact that some get local council funding etc... it's a slippery slope! Bleaney (talk) 18:42, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

My personal view is that they should not be included in these lists i'm afraid. They are not full-time schools that pupils of compulsory school age attend, they are voluntary (in you own words) 'education programmes'. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to include information on these programmes in the location articles? Bleaney (talk) 18:04, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Russian Embassy School in London[edit]

Hello again :-)

Thanks for creating the Russian Embassy School in London article. However I can't seem to find it on Edubase, which lists all accredited full-time schools in England. I have searched under the school name and Independent schools in Kensington and Chelsea and have drawn a blank. It would be useful in terms of categorisation, infobox etc... can you shed any light? Bleaney (talk) 17:59, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

I have had a few tries and nothing... I think it might be because the hours of the school are 8.30 to 2pm, and so it is not a full-time school and not regulated by Ofsted or the Department for Education... it's interesting to note that all the other schools listed as 'International schools' in London are regulated... Bleaney (talk) 18:10, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, and I have to say that these kinds of establishments are not generally regarded as International schools in the trues sense on Wikipedia, as they are not open for private students to attend (they are more akin to military schools abroad for children in foreign bases). Would you mind if I recategorised the article? Bleaney (talk) 18:15, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Request name change of University at Buffalo to State University of New York at Buffalo[edit]

Hello, I noticed you contributed to the suny buffalo page and were the only recent one with a talk page! This article : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_at_Buffalo , is not the official name. The official name is State University of New York at Buffalo and the name should be stated as such. The category section : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:University_at_Buffalo,_The_State_University_of_New_York and when viewed on mobile the wiki page looks like this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_at_Buffalo,_the_State_University_of_New_York baring an incorrect name , University at Buffalo, The State University of New York should not be used instead State University of New York at Buffalo. State University of New York at Buffalo already redirects to the correct wiki page so I imagine changing shouldn't be much of a hassle. Some references here - http://www.buffalo.edu/toolbox/brand/editorial/ub-name.html . It would also fit in when referencing it among other universities as shown here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Flagship_universities_in_the_United_States . If it was State University of New York at Buffalo it would fit in with the others, instead it is outed and seemed like it isn't apart of New York. Furthermore University at Buffalo is just a shortened nickname and University at Buffalo, The State university of New York is also incorrect. It creates confusion among visitors , thats why the official name (State University of New York at Buffalo) would be a better fit. AlaskanNativeRU (talk) 22:27, 7 May 2015 (UTC)§

I'm not sure how to create a request to move otherwise, and it seems like the community over there is hostile, putting in their own bias and often times ignoring references and sources and factual evidence. Thanks!AlaskanNativeRU (talk) 22:37, 7 May 2015 (UTC)§
