Thanks Gerda, how you remember these things beats me!! Howz the Bach Toccata coming on?♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:13, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

My memory is miserable, but if you click on the link you get to the archive, - looking there, at all these reasons for thanks, is a good way to start the day. The Toccata is growing slowly. Too much Wikipedia ;) - I was reminded of all the theatre stubs you created because a friend gets these "moved to draft" and "improve references" messages, and seems discouraged. Any help to the drafts welcome, - only red links are left where they were, instead of interlanguage links. Poor readers. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:54, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Ah just saw this. Wikipedia is a giant time sink. Even drawing up two or three references now I just find tedious, but my current HP Pavilion it's not as easy to edit as in the old days, certainly I can't edit anything substantial on my iPad or laptop, I don't know how people do it! My huge Bach book I caught the binding and it started to unravel so I had to take it all apart and put the music into folders! It would take several decades to learn all the music in the book, too big really but I love Bach!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:14, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of File:MalteseFalconsoundtrack.jpg[edit]

Notice

The file File:MalteseFalconsoundtrack.jpg has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-free album cover being used in a decorative manner in The Maltese Falcon (1941 film)#Soundtrack. Non-free album cover art is generally allowed to be used for primary identification purposes in stand-alone articles about albums, but its use in other articles is generally only allowed when the cover art itself is the subject of sourced critical commentary as explained in WP:NFC#cite_note-3 and the context for non-free use required by WP:NFCC#8 is evident. There is no such commentary for this particular album cover anywhere in the article, and the use of soundtrack album cover art in articles about films or TV programs is generally not allowed for this reason as explained in WP:FILMSCORE.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated files}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the file's talk page.

Please consider addressing the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated files}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and files for discussion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:06, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Dorchester[edit]

Hi Dr, I was over at The Dorchester just now because it's in the news, and saw in the edit count that it's mostly your work. Great job, an article that's full of colour and interest. Hope you're well, Ericoides (talk) 14:27, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! Unfortunately it isn't as well documented as the Ritz, a lot of the info on it is sparse so it probably doesn't read as well as it could if I had more detailed sources, but not bad with what I could find though. All the best.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:22, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Kind of depressing that it took 11 years for somebody to decide it wasn't notable and for anybody to add anything meaningful to it...♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:19, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hello there, Doc. Its good to see you. It has been a good while since you and I talked. I've also not been editing much lately apart from maintaining my previous works and doing a few FLCs now. I do hope your time here has been good so far. Face-smile.svg  — Ssven2 Looking at you, kid 07:46, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello Ssven2!! Hope you're well!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:25, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Yes I am fine, Doc. Slowly getting back to editing now since the demise of my close relation a year ago (this May 10 is his first birth and death anniversary). I've joined this year's WikiCup contest and am in round 2. I've also nominated Kal Ho Naa Ho for PR. You can have a look at the article and comment at the PR at your convenient time. But more than me, Kailash needs help at his Mullum Malarum PR. He is making his fourth attempt at FAC now and the article really could use some good copyedits.

Rosa de lejos a page you made for a film years and years ago that no longer has a IMDB page[edit]

Interesting Rosa de lejos I can't find it anymore, there is a TV show with that title though. So not sure what to say. Wgolf (talk) 01:02, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

It's a telenovela, this could be put into English.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:28, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Christian Lacroix dress of Helen Mirren[edit]

Notice

The article Christian Lacroix dress of Helen Mirren has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Although it's a lovely dress, I couldn't find enough in-depth coverage of it to justify keeping it as a separate article, nor even really enough to merge it somewhere. It's not significant enough to warrant mention at Mirren's article (no more so than any of her other Oscar dresses) or at Lacroix's.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages 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.
