Kaur v MG Rover Group Ltd[edit]

Just wanted to let you know that I saw that you created the new article Kaur v MG Rover Group Ltd--The content seems pretty substantial.It would be great if you could also upload a picture for the related article Baird Textile Holdings Ltd v Marks & Spencer plc. Jipinghe (talk) 20:56, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Thanks very much, but what sort of picture do you mean? The ones in the infobox I usually just put in to relate to what the case is about. Or you mean another kind of picture? Wikidea 21:31, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Regarding File:Abbey National logo.svg[edit]

Info icon 002.svg I have removed File:Abbey National logo.svg from Abbey National Building Society v Cann because it does not have a valid non-free media use rationale for the article. Please see Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria for the applicable policy and Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline if you want to address the issues. Thank you.

List of oldest companies[edit]

Hi. You reverted my removal of a few thousand external links from this article... Firstly, I did attempt discussing this change on the talk page but given the lack of response just went ahead anyway.

I've never on Wikipedia seen an article with so many so thought it reasonable to remove them, given the guidelines on WP:EL and WP:LINKFARM. The links are *not* for verification as 1) many didn't include this information and 2) they are first-party sources...

I'm of the opinion that all of those entries requires a source from a third party publication, verifying their establishment date, but that's a separate issue. I really don't see why a link to the official page is needed however, so will revert your change - as mentioned on the talk page, if a company truly is a few hundred years old, it should have a Wikipedia article all of it's own where a link to an official website is encouraged.

Cheers, Nikthestoned 13:52, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

It just looked to me like someone had gone to a great deal of trouble to do that - and it seems to be someone from Japan. Did you try to ask them? It's more the list itself rather than the links that'd need verifying. Surely it's useful to go to those websites? I don't think the linkfarm policy is so rigid - or aims to stop this thing. Wikidea 14:20, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
I just can't imagine anyone browsing that list that would then fancy taking a look at a specific-entries official website and NOT their wiki-page... It appears to me that the links have always been included but I still maintain that there's no need for them being there, other than verification - for which most were unsuitable, as per the above. Nikthestoned 14:36, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured article review/Law/archive2[edit]

Whenever you're ready to take a crack at this FAR, please let me know - I'd like to help out. At the review, I asked for a roadmap for improvement and didn't quite get one - just a list of a few minor items. But I'm not going to ask again, for fear of triggering a rush of "Delist - no progress" comments. Suffice to say, let me know what I can do. Thanks, UltraExactZZ Said ~ Did 15:09, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Cheers, I'm hoping to do something before long - hopefully there's some progress with suggestions for what people want by now! Wikidea 10:04, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

List of countries Michael Palin has traveled to[edit]

List of countries Michael Palin has traveled to was just a redirect to List of countries and territories Michael Palin has travelled to. That article has been deleted by this article for deletion debate. Garion96 (talk) 17:47, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah, forgot that. :) Basically it was a list with the following tables "Place" "Journey(s)" and "highlights". Below that a small list of countries Palin visited more than once. Basically the AFD was correct, it wasn't really needed. Garion96 (talk) 00:33, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Replacement filing cabinet.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including United Kingdom immigration law. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. This can help you too, as the WikiProject members will often defend your work from deletion and try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information.

FTSE 100 Index[edit]

Hi - Great work enhancing the FTSE 100 Index article with a market capitalization table. The concept is very good but some of the companies you have included are not FTSE 100 index constituents. The official listing is here: 100 Index Constituents&dl=&p_encoded=1. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 19:43, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

It does make a difference because the list you are using is the FTSE All-Share Index which has a different composition to the FTSE 100 Index. A possible solution is for you to move your table to the FTSE All-Share Index article where it would be more relevant. A better solution might be for you to select those companies that really are FTSE 100 Index (which are identified in your source): in which case you should delete Banco Santander Central Hispano, Virgin Media Inc, DP World Ltd, Yamana Gold Inc, First Quantum Minerals LD, easyJet, London Stock Exchange Group, Signet Jewelers Ltd, Travis Perkins and Mondi. You also need to include John Wood, Kazakhmys and Intu Properties. By the way neither index changes every day - they both have a fixed composition, albeit different, which is reviewed on a quarterly basis. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 21:46, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I think I've understood. I'll get round to doing it soonish - but feel free to do it yourself of course! But any idea about market cap figures for those remaining companies? Wikidea 22:35, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
The market cap figures are in your source. I will give it a try myself. You may need to tidy it up! Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 22:47, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I think I have now fixed it. Great table! Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 23:50, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

March 2013[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia. We always appreciate when users upload new images. However, it appears that one or more of the images you have recently uploaded or added to an article may fail our non-free image policy. Most often, this involves editors uploading or using a copyrighted image of a living person. For other possible reasons, please read up on our Non-free image criteria. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Werieth (talk) 15:08, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Act like a human if you want to post on my page. There's no problem with using the images. Wikidea 15:10, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Take a look at our non-free content policy it does not permit usage in that manner. Werieth (talk) 15:14, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Why don't YOU read some copyright law: here's what it says on the page, for instance, for the Shell logo. "This is a logo of an organization, item, or event, and is protected by copyright. It is believed that the use of low-resolution images on the English-language Wikipedia, hosted on servers in the United States by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation, of logos for certain uses involving identification and critical commentary may qualify as fair use under United States copyright law. Any other uses of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement. Certain commercial use of this image may also be trademark infringement. See Wikipedia:Non-free content and Wikipedia:Logos. Use of the logo here does not imply endorsement of the organization by Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation, nor vice versa."
Now can you please direct your efforts to something useful. Wikidea 15:15, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Wikipedia policy is far stricter than the law. Policy is what you need to familiarize yourself with. Werieth (talk) 15:17, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Please note I referred to it as non-free content, which has far stricter restrictions than fair use on wikipedia. Werieth (talk) 15:17, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection. Werieth (talk) 15:18, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

You haven't explained what the issue is with Wikipedia policy. There is none, and don't use empty threats to make your point. Wikidea 15:21, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Non-free content is not permitted in lists. it fails WP:NFCC#8 Werieth (talk) 15:24, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

You need to say what it is that you object to. There isn't anything there that's inconsistent with displaying these logos. Wikidea 15:38, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
You need to learn to discuss things before you waste my time, and everyone else you drag in, with this immature behaviour. See Talk:FTSE 100. Wikidea 15:42, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Our non-free policy is much stricter than you think. We do not allow non-free content in lists and tables (WP:NFLISTS) because the content is nearly always used as mere decoration. Non-free content when used is supposed to be the subject of discussion within the article, and these uses do not meet that. --MASEM (t) 15:52, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
My talk page isn't the place for this. That policy does not stop anything at all. Please see Talk:FTSE 100. It shouldn't have got to this. Wikidea 15:57, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

You are edit warring in a clear violation of WP:NFCC#10. WP:NFCC#10 requires text in each individual image file that includes "the name of each article ... in which fair use is claimed for the item, and a separate, specific non-free use rationale for each use of the item, as explained at Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline." If you can add an individual fair-use reasoning to each of the 100 image files, you can then add them back to the article. If you restore them again before updating the licenses, you will be blocked. If you have a question as to what WP:NFCC#10 requires, feel free to ask me.—Kww(talk) 20:42, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Please don't threaten me again. I've posted a comment on Talk:FTSE 100 Index if you'd like to help. Thanks, Wikidea 23:28, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Hi - As you will see above I congratulated you on your great work enhancing the FTSE 100 Index article with a market capitalization table. However the article is now a mess as a result of various editors insisting that you remove most of the icons. WP:ELNO also discourages the use of external links and in this case you have inserted very few of them so the article is now a mess in that regard as well. What however what I am really disappointed about is the fact that, despite the fact that I think I am the sole supporter of your work on this article, you have chosen to remove the whole of my efforts to providing a new table which shows the new position after the latest quarterly changes in the index. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 16:15, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
Many apologies, I didn't get that that's what you'd done. Anyway, it's all back now from someone else's reversion, and I've opened a copyright discussion. If we can get the logos back, and the website, of course your improvements are great and should be retained. Wikidea 16:20, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
OK. No problem. Let's see what happenes with the copyright discussion. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 16:22, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

"Right to not support a union law"[edit]

Per WP:COMMONNAME, an article must go where the reader will look for it. This name you made up for it is not used by anybody; and my preferred name for the topic, the more truthful "right to work for less law", is used primarily by worker advocates. The fact is, the name "right-to-work law", however specious, is the name used in common discourse; and the true NPOV violation would be to ignore that fact in order to make a point about the falsity of the term. --Orange Mike | Talk 19:08, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

How about putting it in quotes then - entitled "Right to work" law? Wikidea 19:26, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
I'd like to: but again, the use of scare quotes is a species of editorializing; and most ordinary uses of the term do not add the scare quotes. --Orange Mike | Talk 20:01, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I see the dilemma. But I'm still not sure it's right to follow the misrepresentations of the laws' proponents. Its almost Orwellian: no right to work in any shape or form. Maybe scare quotes - or some other idea? - is the lesser of two evils. What about the formal name under the Taft-Hartley Act itself? Wikidea 06:28, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Unsourced new articles[edit]

Hi there,

I've just noticed you've been creating a lot of new articles which (despite having references sections) don't have any references, such as:

Many others don't quote anything except the case references involved:

They usually include very large quotations from a judgement, and presumably you are getting this from somewhere - could you please try and cite your sources in future? Without a source, in many cases, it's impossible to tell whether these are notable cases or not - for example, Berezovsky v Abramovich suggests that it was important because of the barrister, not because of any legal importance (or public notoriety), and doesn't even give the context of who Berezovsky or Abramovich were! Meanwhile, articles like the Belmont and Cheyne pages don't tell us if the judgement sets precedent or if it was completely run-of-the-mill.

Without some kind of reliable third-party sourcing and clear indication of significance, there's unfortunately nothing to stop these pages being listed for deletion! Andrew Gray (talk) 20:30, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Guinness plc v Saunders[edit]

Hello Wikidea,
I was coming here to make a similar query to the above about Guinness plc v Saunders so I though I might as well put it here! A reference such as "[1990] 2 AC 663, 686" unfortunately means nothing to me as a non-legal knowledgeable person. I have tried to find some on-lne sources. I found http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/company-law-director039s-fiduciary-duty-guiness-plc-v-saunders-and-another, which may be useful. Unfortunately the text of this cases' judgment does not appear to be available on the Internet. Without having references that are checkable I feel that articles such as these fail wp:Verifiability. --220 of Borg 15:36, 11 July 2013 (UTC)
It's the official case reports, which you can find in any university library. I was trying to get a template like the ones for American cases: Brazee v. Michigan, 241 U.S. 340 (1916)
Do you know how that would be done? Then one of the links takes you to the case citation explanation page. Wikidea 07:49, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
I think any template you want created could be brought up at WikiProject Templates. 220 of Borg 20:14, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Cheers, I'll ask there. Wikidea 15:31, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Template:Cite BAILII is a useful template for linking to judgments found at the Bailii site. In this case, it is referenced as Guiness plc v Saunders Plc [1989] UKHL 2, [1990] 2 AC 663 (8 February 1990)Raellerby (talk) 21:51, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Removing "citation needed" tags[edit]

These tags should only be removed if someone has added a citation, or if you feel that the statement doesn't require a source, for whatever reason. Making a sentence more specific does not, by itself, remove the need for a citation. --McGeddon (talk) 13:36, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Jarndyce v. Jarndyce (!)[edit]

I found your user page because I got a notification you'd linked to a page I'd created. And it looks as if you might be able to help me with an entirely different matter. Some time ago Jarndyce and Jarndyce was unilaterally moved to Jarndyce v Jarndyce so I, supposing there was a legal technicality regarding the two different ways of citation, made a request to move it back at Talk:Jarndyce v Jarndyce. Whatever the outcome of this rather unimportant matter, I'd like to put a footnote in the article. Is there a reliable source saying that a case written as "A v. B" is spoken of as "A and B"? And, a real long shot, do you know of any source discussing Dickens' usage of the term? Thincat (talk) 11:43, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of London streets are paved with gold[edit]

The article Landmark Cases in Land Law has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable book, fails WP:NBOOK

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.

Aargh, yet another bad, undiscussed move[edit]

at Somersett's Case. Please stop doing these! See WP:RM - you are supposed to ask first. NOBODY calls it by the new title. Johnbod (talk) 20:41, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm sorry I didn't want to upset anybody! Most of the time nobody seems to be interested, because I create hundreds of case pages and often realise they need moving. The reason I gave in the move for this was that the name now matches the report, and in fact if you look on scholar.google.co.uk, about 500 to 100 articles appear to call the case Somerset v Stewart, as seems to be correct. Wikidea 11:02, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
It's a very well-known case, and on normal google most only do so after referring to it as Somersett's Case or Somerset's Case. The WP:COMMONNAME is one or either of these. Johnbod (talk) 12:03, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
But of course normal google may be reflecting the Wikipedia article being wrong for so long. The case report is what matters most, and then this: http://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?hl=en&q=%22Somerset+v+Stewart%22&btnG=&as_sdt=1%2C5&as_sdtp= Wikidea 12:07, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Your Scottish case law re-categorisations[edit]

Hi there, I was wondering about your recent recategorising of Scottish case law articles as United Kingdom case law. As Scots Law is a separate system to that used in England and Wales, would it not be better to leave them as "Scottish" and make the Scottish category a subcategory of United Kingdom, as is the case with Category:English administrative case law‎? -- Teh Cheezor Speak 08:45, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi there - yes, good question: I'm doing it with the English ones too - merging them all into one category. This is partly my fault from previous edits, but in fact UK administrative law is a whole system. Differences in judicial review do turn on Acts of Parliament where their geographical scope differs but in principle all these cases are the UK cases first. Wikidea 08:48, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your colourful warnings - hopefully you don't mind the main changes I was making: the article's formatting. Yes, it does need some work because it's very messy, and so I've left your tags up this time. Perhaps the best thing is to state what you want on the talk page of Thoburn v Sunderland CC?

Your recent editing history at Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution.CFredkin (talk) 15:09, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

You've got some cheek! Wikidea 18:56, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
It is not unreasonable to ask that, rather than keep adding the same material, you simply show on the talk page that it should stand because here is the source and this is where it says it. It is exactly the same test that applies to every editor of every wp article.--John Maynard Friedman (talk) 23:06, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Another way of viewing the idea of accusing people of being sockpuppets is that it is offending two or more people at once, and should prob be avoided. But no worries. Wikidea 09:40, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Scalia[edit]

You can't do a content fork for the purpose of perpetuating a BLP violation. That material is of dubious relevance and as it is it's a violation of BLP policy and reliable source policy. Blog stating what somebody else supposedly said is not reliable certainly not for living person. if you don't believe me any number of noticeboards will tell you the same thing. And it doesn't matter whose article it's in.--Wehwalt (talk) 10:42, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

This has been done under two or more of the criteria for speedy deletion, by which articles can be deleted at any time, without discussion.

This is very strange idea that it's an "attack". That is absolute nonsense that my intention is to disparage or threaten a dead person. Such things are entirely unfounded, and frankly, Bbb23, I am unimpressed with you for suggesting this: surely that is an "attack". This is the rest of my reply:
This page should not be speedily deleted because... First, isn't this ground for deletions for BLP? The person here is no longer living.
(1) SE Scalia is notable as the second reference showed, because he was a professor at Brooklyn College and by being the father of a notable judge, Antonin Scalia. Two easy examples of people who are notable by their association are Barack Obama, Sr. and Ann Dunham. Why are they different? Here the case seems even stronger for notability: SE Scalia was a professor of Romance languages at a notable higher education institution: Brooklyn College.
(2) How is this an 'attack' exactly? Factual information, backed up by the references, cannot amount to an 'attack'. This simply cannot be regarded as accurate. If the sources are not deemed credible, this surely justifies deletion of those references, not the page.
In short, I'm very confused about why this raises an issue. Is it because some people are uncomfortable about who Scalia might have been? That would be a very significant precedent to set. Wikidea 22:48, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

re animation[edit]

If you mean it won't animate, yeah, large GIFs don't load entirely on wikipedia pages, to keep bandwidth and memory usage low. There's no way to get it to happen, people have to click through to animate it. --Golbez (talk) 21:42, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

That one is a lot smaller; fewer colors, more jagged lines, less information, etc. Yeah, there's not much to be done on this one, and that's fine. We can direct people to click through. --Golbez (talk) 03:07, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
