Disambiguation link notification for January 5[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Southcote Lock, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Southcote (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.

Rename of Infobox lock[edit]

Just edited County Lock and was surprised that one of the side effects of my edit was to redlink the infobox template. Digging further, I found that you had moved the template into user space. As there were no explanatory comments, I assumed this was an error and reverted your move. But looking even further, I see that all this is fairly recent and maybe was deliberate. Please feel free to remove, but could you please remove all references to the template in article space first, otherwise we end up with a bit of a mess. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 20:31, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Digging a little further, I've discovered there is already a Template:Infobox waterlock, which probably should be used. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 20:43, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Yep, that's why I reverted. All my hard work before finding the existing infobox! That's why I pulled it out of use as soon as I noticed. I'd only put the 'new' template on 3 pages (so not much to revert). If I get the chance I'll look to merging some of the new bits into the existing infobox (particularly formatting). Thanks for the message. matt (talk) 00:26, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
All my hard work before finding the existing infobox. Know the feeling. :-( Thanks for fixing it up. -- chris_j_wood (talk) 13:45, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Julián Ladera[edit]

Sorry for the confusion. When I approved it, I was reading it in the sense of "Julián Ladera was born in a town that is now a ghost village". If you'll read the whole discussion (perhaps you have; I'm sorry if I'm telling you what you already know), you'll see that the place was destroyed by the Vargas tragedy of 1999, and you'll also see that I was completely unaware of the situation (originally rejecting parts of the article because I misunderstood what had happened) until someone had to give me a link to the tragedy and explain how it was relevant.

Book[edit]

Not sure how familiar you actually are with musical's but a Book in the infobox or talked about in a musical article is the book of the musical. It is not referring at all to the show being based on a book. Every musical has a book.Blethering Scot 17:27, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

As with previous questions (like this one from December), it's somewhere between F major and F (or G) major. It isn't definitely one or the other—the reason for this being the same explanation as before. Happy to help! matt (talk) 13:12, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Stale drafts[edit]

Hi, I stumbled across User:Mattgirling/Theale, Berkshire. Because of WP:STALEDRAFT, this ought to be blanked or deleted. As you're both active here and an admin, you probably need no further help to review your user sub-pages and do what's needed, so over to you! Best wishes, – Fayenatic London 20:43, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you may have been too busy to bother with this, so I blanked that one and tagged another with {{user draft}}. No offence intended. Please review your other sub-pages that look like articles. – Fayenatic London 10:07, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

key[edit]

This song is in which key ? It's very hard to tell. 166.48.198.52 (talk) 19:13, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I'm sorry but I can't keep helping with these questions. It may be worth reading up on topics such as relative pitch and the A440 pitch standard.

Avoncliff Aqueduct[edit]

Thanks for your edit to Avoncliff Aqueduct but I wasn't sure if your edit summary was a question "Can standard craft (for that navigation) pass on the aqueduct"? If so yes narrowboats etc on the K&A can pass over it, but the River Avon beneath it can only be navigated by canoes etc.— Rod talk 14:21, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Rod—my summary was quoting the infobox documentation, which says that that particular field should give info on the craft (i.e. narrowboats) travelling over the aqueduct; as they are able to travel over it I changed it to "yes". Hope this makes sense! matt (talk) 14:24, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:BirminghamEastsideMap.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:BirminghamEastsideMap.png. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Kelly hi! 08:45, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

The article Bob Skeat 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) 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. This proposed deletion was started by User:Piotrus

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.

Contests[edit]

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. As someone who has previously expressed interest in African topics, would you be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:32, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
