Meeting[edit]

Wanna meet the guy standing right beside you, supporting you in every move you make ? Krenakarore TK 07:13, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Krenakarore, I'm not sure what you mean exactly? Yakikaki (talk) 17:28, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi, sorry for the late answer. I'm very glad that we can cooperate on several projects here, but I think I should emphasise that this is really just something I do as a hobby, and hardly even that. I have a rather hectic life and although I feel honoured by your proposal and am sure you are a fine person, I have to be honest and say I prefer a degree of anonymity or personal disengagement here. Please don't feel upset about this, I'm sure we could have a lot of fun together, but I prefer to just edit articles when I'm active here. But I do wish you all the best, and I hope we can continue making Wikipedia better, even so. Take care and be well! Cheers, Yakikaki (talk) 19:03, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Saying NO isn't offensive. I am not the kind of guy who "hang around" with my Wikipedian friends, although I did shake hands with one of them last month right here in Prague. We talked about Ukraine, had a pizza, drank some wine and took pictures as well. Another one showed me her orange dress in a picture taken inside a beautiful cathedral while she sang one of Bach's cantatas. Another showed me he looks like Donald Pleasance, while another pointed me to her picture in her Wikimedia essay. Others told me they are on YouTube while one other, you know, do prefer her anonymity preserved :) ! Krenakarore TK 20:12, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Gryta Church[edit]

Make it worth while my dear. The article needs some copy editing then you list it for DYK (You, Mr. Carter and me). Make the most out of this situation so you'll never forget that together we stand, divided we fall :) ! By the way, Mr. Carter did a wonderful job there and I think you should pay him a visit. He is a wonderful human being, just like you. He wants to meet you and I think a brief conversation would help you with Swedish things alike. Very best, Krenakarore TK 22:02, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Historic houses[edit]

Hi Yakikaki. You might be interested to see that WP:Architecture now has a task force on Historic houses. I have offered a preliminary list of red links for Denmark at Todo items for anyone. Maybe you would like to help in drawing up lists for Sweden or Estonia. We could also develop priorities based on the regions or even municipalities drawing on sv:Kategori:Slott i Sverige efter landskap and sv:Kategori:Herrgårdar i Sverige. Any assistance you can give with picking out those deserving priority treatment would be appreciated. Personally, I would tend to go first for those which are already at least start class in Danish, preferably with illustrations and possibly with links to articles in other languages. There is no rush on this but I certainly think it would be useful to improve coverage in Sweden as the project develops. And Estonia is up to you!--Ipigott (talk) 15:13, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Ipigott, thank you for the message. I'll be happy to contribute what I can! I'll go through the lists and also check some other sources, and try to make a similar red-linked list for Sweden and Estonia. My preliminary assessment is that when it comes to Sweden and Estonia, a lot of articles exist but are stubs or badly written and/or edited, so I may end up making a list of articles to improve instead. But I'll get back when I've checked! Yakikaki (talk) 14:53, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
Articles requiring improvement should indeed also be targeted.--Ipigott (talk) 14:57, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Concerned[edit]

Hello Yakikaki! I hope you have had a pleasant solstice it's a big holiday here in Sweden as I assume you know. Sorry to disturb you, but since you and Krenakarore seems to know each other even outside the Wikipedia, I just wonder if you have heard from him lately? Usually he's always around doing his gnome work, but he was very badly treated by another editor and I have not "seen" him since then and I'm starting to get a little worried. My very best to you, - W.carter (talk) 14:31, 23 June 2014 (UTC) Hello W.carter! I'm sorry but I haven't heard anything from him in a little while either, but on the other hand we really only know each other via Wikipedia, so I have no idea. I hope he's fine though - when did you last hear from him? Best, Yakikaki (talk) 16:00, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

The last time I heard from him was 18 June. He had just deleted a long line of edits on his talk page as you can see on his log. Sorry if I mistook how well you know him, it was just the way he spoke of you that made me jump to that conclusion. Let's just hope he's fine and returns when he can. Best, - W.carter (talk) 16:10, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
No problem, he's very generous and likeable I think :) Yes, let's, and as far as I recall he's been away for some prolonged time on earlier occasions, too. I'm sure he'll be back :) Yakikaki (talk) 16:14, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Estonian nature reserves[edit]

I think it is excellent that you are creating these articles - tbh, this is something I've been planning to do myself for ages as well. However, could you please also include links to Estonian nature registries - Keskkonnaregister and Keskkonnainfo - you can get the direct links to first from List of protected areas of Estonia if you want. --Sander Säde 09:15, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, I will keep it in mind! Also, I think all the ones I've created can be substantially expanded, so there should be work left for you :) Yakikaki (talk) 15:32, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
Editing Wikipedia is an endless work... I think that I'll see if I can get some photos for nature reserves during this summer - at least for Rapla and Harju counties. --Sander Säde 08:53, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Hello Yakikaki! Congratulations on the barnstar! You really deserve it. :) Can I just ask you a small (and silly) thing? My archiving bot has started to work and is archiving the old discussions on my talk page. This also hides the nice things I've been given and I would like to collect them all on a separate page, much like most editors do. Can I just cut and paste them there or must I do some kind of "move" thing for these? I am unsure of how this is usually done. Best, - W.carter (talk) 16:09, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
Hello W.carter! I hope you're having a nice summer on the island! Thank you for your kind words, you've really cheered me up. :) And I don't think it's silly at all, we should take pride in our achievements :) I think it's just to copy paste them, that's what I did at least. Perhaps there's some more elegant way though, I'm not the best at the editing-part of Wikipedia, I have to admit :) Cheers, Yakikaki (talk) 16:32, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Some new pictures[edit]

Sankt Clemens, Visby, including black cat. Meow!

Hello Yakikaki! Hope you have had a pleasant holiday. :) Mine got canceled due to too much to do at work, guess I have to wait until autumn for the next trip to the Gotland country side. Might be for the best since the churches without pictures all seems to be hard to photograph because of all the trees. Better to wait until the leaves are off. But I took a stroll in Visby a couple of days ago and managed to get some more pics of St Clemens an St Karin. Don't know if you are interested, I know you already have pics for these, but they can be found here or here. These two ruins are tricky! They are both in the busy area of Visby, surrounded by houses making access hard, exposed sides are facing north so best pics light-wise must be taken at 5:00 a.m. in spring (!) and not always open. Clemens houses a café in the summer and is closed in the winter. (The cat in pic 8 was friendly though. :) ) Karin is almost always closed to public (I had to poke my camera through the gate to get pics inside) since it is used for all kinds of events. During the winter it is used as a skating rink! (No, I'm not kidding, see here or here). Welcome back! w.carter-Talk 13:00, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello there! Ooh nice pics! :) I'm sorry about your lost vacation, though, that sounds rather annoying. I hope they will pay you loads of extra money for the trouble, at least ;) Yes, both Clemens and Karin seem tricky to catch on photos, but I think you did an excellent job, 5 am or not! These ruins are really quite massive, much larger than I initially realised, and judging from your photos both impressive and somehow gentle, at the same time. I'm very happy to have found such a talented and kind friend like you on Wikipedia! :-) This week I hope to be able to continue my work on these wonderful churches, but first I have a few other things I need to take care of. Bye for now, and thanks again! Yakikaki (talk) 21:20, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Ryska kyrkan[edit]

Russian church, Visby.

Hello! It's just me again. I have been thinking about a pic of the Russian Church in Visby, that there might be something in an archive at the museum or something. I know that the father of one of my friends was present at the excavation of the church and that maybe there could be some pic from that. Unfortunately it seems like the museum has removed its photo collections from the Internet. :( But there are some that you could claim as "fair use" if you want to. There is the sketch here or the pic of the excavated foundation (including skeleton) here. I could also just drop by and take a pic of the building now residing on top of the ruins, like the pic of the "Ryska gården" at the Guteinfo-site. I noticed you have a similar take on the pic for the Solberga Abbey. Just let me know. :) At least I can provide you with a detail from the old Visby map. I cropped it and just uploaded it. It is most likely a depiction of the Russian Church in Visby. It matches the location and the sketched reconstructions of the church based on facts found at the excavation of the foundations 1971. Best, w.carter-Talk 10:42, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Hello! I see we have been considering the same problem :) Hm, it's a bit tricky, for sure! Your idea to use one of the linked images is great, I didn't know you could claim fair use in this way, but then again I've always been bad at understanding the copyright rules - to me it's a big jungle. :) But I will study them more carefully, sounds like it might come in handy! For now though I think this excellent crop from the map should be sufficient, and for some reason I really like the image as such as well. How very nice to get rid of the white blank spot - thanks! :) Ciao, Yakikaki (talk) 11:38, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
I think this pic is actually nicer than the reconstruct sketch. It's in color and seems "friendly" in some way. Pity the map only covers Visby within the wall, otherwise we might have a similar one for Solberga Abbey. If I come across something I'll let you know. See ya! w.carter-Talk 11:56, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

List of regional characteristics of Romanesque churches[edit]

Nearly all the information that you added to this article was useful but 'none of it conformed to the way in which the information was formatted.

  • The lists of examples for England, France and Germany etc don't contain subsections for different regions. Information about regions is listed under the influences, not under the list of buildings.
  • None of the examples of buildings have the name of their country in brackets.

A basic rule of successful editting is to look at the way that previous edits have been done, and if what you see is consistent (rather than a mess that needs tidying up) then follow through on what you see.

I forgot to mention that buildings are only listed if they have articles. If you write articles about some of the non-listed churches that are significant, then list them. But keep in mind that the numbers of significant churches are proportionally small in Scandinavia. In France, England and Italy there are literally hundreds of churches that are Romanesque or have significant Romanesque parts, but have been omitted, with only some of the most important making it to the list. It would be easy to create an imbalance by including almost every Romanesque building in Sweden and only a very small percent of the Romanesque churches of France. The list for the UK, for example, only includes two of the finest, least altered, parish churches, where in fact there are a very large number that retain significant Romanesque parts.

Alice Habsburg[edit]

I finally got to expanding Alice Habsburg with the Polish source [1], but I am afraid it may be too late for a DYK nom? Perhaps you could submit it anyway, and blame the delay on me - I'll gladly fess up to it and do an extra DYK review to appease the reviewer. If each of us does a review (so two instead of a regular one) maybe we can have this DYKed? (PS. Bare URL ref for now because Dispenser is being difficult again). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:17, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks a lot for the expansion, it looks much better already! Hm, well, we can try to get it DYK-nominated but my albeit limited earlier experience of DYK has been that it's quite formalistic. For my own part, I'm satisfied with just having the article and bringing it up to good standard, but if you want we can make an attempt at DYK?

Flag fixed[edit]

Hello Yaki! I have finished checking and double checking the flag at Svindersvik, and it is pretty much as we thought: Forbidden but used anyway. I have put the whole explanation in a note (with refs) at the pic on the Draft:Grill (family)#Origin page. Feel free to nick it all if you still want to use it in Svindersvik. :) I use Harvard refs, so the full ref for the second book is found at Bibliography section. A bientôt! w.carter-Talk 20:49, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Btw, have you ever used the LIBRIS catalogue? It is great for fixing the "cite book". If you know the name or author of the book, you enter it in the search box on any page. Like if I want all the facts for the ref for "Svenska ostindiska compagnierna 1731-1813", I enter that and end up here. I click on the most likely book and end up at this page. This page can be used as the url for the book in the ref. Then I click on the "Skapa referens" (middle of the page), scroll down and there is everything I need for the ref. Just copy and paste to the cite book. Very handy. No mistakes in spelling or ISBN-numbers. I use it all the time, especially if the title is long. :) Pity it's in Swedish and can't just be copied as a whole, but is some help anyway. Best, w.carter-Talk 21:06, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hey, sorry for the belated answer, it's been quite hectic at work lately. Hm, interesting about the flag! I'll incorporate it into Svindersvik for sure - thanks for the great research! I've encountered Libris a few times but never got the hang of how to use it, or quite frankly, what it was. So thanks for the suggestion, I'll be sure to check it out. It seems a lot more convenient and also safe, in the sense that you're sure to get it right. Very Swedish, essentially :) Ciao for now, Yakikaki (talk) 19:28, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Hello! Have a rest now from your exhausting week. :) I just post when it's convenient, and you read at your leisure. Libris is actually the catalogue for all books in Swedish libraries, so quite comprehensive. Aside from the spelling thing, I also use it to see if a book I want is available at my little library in Visby or if I have to order it from some other library. The bureaucracy in Sweden can be a tad too much sometimes, but it has its advantages. Have a nice weekend! w.carter-Talk 20:59, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
