Good work with the Whitbread Awards. I had been hoping to see those get done for some time now. - SimonP 15:54, Jul 20, 2004 (UTC)


Nice job with the copyedits on John F. Kennedy assassination. This kind of work does not get much credit, but increases the value of the thing. Jgm 15:13, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)


With a name like MeltBanana, I would have expected to see you around on some music pages. Anyway, if you're a fan of Grindcore at all would you think about adding to that page? I'm bored of editing pages that no one else does. millerc 19:23, 2 Sep 2004 (UTC)

"...thrown with great force"[edit]

Hi, I dug out my copy of "The Collected Dorothy Parker" and dug out the book review for "The House at Pooh Corner", and it appears that you are correct. Here is the full review:

Far From Well, Constant Reader, The New Yorker, October 20, 1928
The more it
Snows-tiddely-pom,
The more it
Goes-tiddely-pom
The more it
Goes-tiddely-pom
On
Snowing
And nobody
Knows-tiddely-pom
How cold my
Toes-tiddely-pom
How cold my
Toes-tiddely-pom
Are
Growing
The above page is culled from the fifth page of Mr. A. A. Milne's new book, The House at Pooh Corner, for, although the work is in prose, there are frequent droppings into more cadenced whimsy. This one is designated as a "Hum," that pops into the head of Winniw-the-Pooh as he is standing outside Piglet's house in the snow, jumping up and down to keep warm. It "seemed to him a Good Hum, such as is Hummed Hopefully to Others." In fact, so Good a Hum did it seem that he and Piglet started right out through the snow to Hum it Hopefully to Eeyore. Oh, darn - there I've gone and given away the plot. Oh, I could bite my tongue out.
As they are trotting along against the flakes, Piglet begins to weaken a bit.
" 'Pooh,' he said at last and a little timidly, because he didn't want Pooh to think he was Giving In, 'I was just wondering. How would it be if we went home now and practised your song, and then sang it to Eeyore tomorrow - or - or the next day, when we happen to se him.'
" 'That's a very good idea, Piglet,' said Pooh. 'We'll practise it now as we go along. But it's no good going home to practise it, because it's a special Outdoor Song which Has To Be Sung In The Snow.'
" 'Are you sure?' asked Piglet anxiously.
" 'Well, you'll see, Piglet, when you listen. Because this is how it begins. The more it snows, tiddely-pom-'
" 'Tiddely what?' said Piglet." (He took, as you might say, the very words out of your correspondent's mouth.)
" 'Pom,' said Pooh. 'I put that in to make it more hummy.' "
And it is that word "hummy," my darlings, that marks the first place in The House at Pooh Corner at which Tonstant Weader Fwowed up.

No sign of the thrown with great force quote... might bring it up at the reference desk again to see if anyone has any other ideas... -- Graham ☺ | Talk 13:03, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Indian rebellion of 1857[edit]

thanks for your work on Indian rebellion of 1857 artical. looks linke you did a great job :-) tooto 15:49, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Yes, good work. I improved some of the phrasing and added a note on the significance of the war. Gdr 10:58, 2004 Oct 13 (UTC)

Red-link recovery[edit]

Howdy and many thanks for your work on that list of mis-punctuated links. The list's pretty much completed now - I'll be generating a new version of it in due course, taking all the lessons learned from the last one into account. In the meantime, if you enjoyed working through the list (or at least found it a worthwhile distraction), you may want to have a look at the similar list of plural discrepancies which highlights red-links that might be red because they (or the article they are aiming for) are improperly pluralised. Again, thanks for your efforts - award yourself a wikimedal for janitorial services if you haven't already got one! - TB 11:27, 2004 Nov 8 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

I like your writing style[edit]

hey- thanks for beefing up orwellian back in august. I just found it. I knew it deserved better than to be a redirect to orwell. I like your sentence structure. you rock.

later,

Kenn

wow[edit]

...Then I noticed the little war there with "neutrality". what a dick. I mean, I'm for neutrality (the thing, not the guy) but gimme a break. I guess any community that forms will have people who... is dilettante the word? philistine? If there's anything I can do to help, I'm for your content.

Aayla Secura[edit]

Did you not read the Talk page? I moved the Secura article to its own page for a reason! I'm planning on adding to the thing this week. --Kross 21:34, May 24, 2005 (UTC) Edit: Looks like I had the wrong guy. Sorry dude. :P

War of the Worlds talk[edit]

I just revisited The War of the Worlds (radio) today and noticed that my merge request was fulfilled by you. I've taken the liberty of moving the contents of the other talk page, Talk:War of the Worlds (radio) (which is now just a redirect) to Talk:The War of the Worlds (radio). I thought it was important to keep the more extensive discussion with the "live" page. Any objection? - dcljr (talk) 09:29, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

"Merge" template voting[edit]

I've set up two separate votes on the "merge" templates' discussion page. One pertains to the templates' wording, and the other pertains to the templates' visual design. Users may vote on neither, either or both of these issues.

Please note that I've posted this invitation on the talk pages of everyone who has expressed a preference for either wording and/or visual design. —Lifeisunfair 3 July 2005 19:48 (UTC)

Hudibras and Hudibrastic[edit]

Thanks for the link cleanings on Restoration literature and Augustan prose, but there is one that I think was intentional. I have been meaning for a while to create Hudibrastic, as it has an existence outside of Butler's own work and is a somewhat commonly referred to bit of poetics. Hence, I figure that some student will hit the word and want to look it up. A reference to Butler or Butler's poem (and no one seems to want to write up a good article on the poem; since I'm the one who makes the most links to it, I've always taken it as a sign that I ought to write it, but it stays on my "real soon now" list) won't be bad, but I can do a quick article on "Hudibrastic" now, while Hudibras is going to have to wait for research and re-reading time.

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art[edit]

Cheers for helping out there. I did actually spend a bit of time looking for it but clearly being full of the flu affects the brain, or something. Anyways nice one. Oh yeah enjoyed the new message gag. Although I have to say it does come 2nd to the guy that had the same thing with 'Nude Massage' with the same colurs etc. Regards.

Working on D H Lawrence[edit]

Thanks for your helpful comments about formatting and style. I'm new to writing for Wikipedia and am still getting the hang of it. I've now left a few comments for proposed revisions on the discussion page of the main D. H. Lawrence article that you might want to check out at some stage.

Please keep up the excellent work.

Catholic encyclopedia[edit]

I've noticed have made some contributions incorporating information from the Catholic encyclopedia into wikipedia. I've created a project page for the Catholic Encyclopedia as part of the Missing encyclopedic articles project to coordinate efforts and hopefully make the work easier.

Chief Butler of England[edit]

I'm afraid that's about as much as I can tell you. A google search might come up with historic holders of the title, and when the Duke of Norfolk became associated with it. -- Francs2000 | Talk 20:56, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Finally, some Reliques![edit]

Thanks for writing up the Reliques of Ancient Poetry. It was about time. I kept thinking that I'd have to do it, and, although I like part of them and know a bit about Percy through the lens of his membership in Johnson's Club, I just felt that I was the wrong person to write the article. It deserves a thorough treatment, as it's one of the most important single volumes in poetic history (deserved or not). I'm glad you wrote it up. (Someone also needs to do Edward Bysshe's Art of Poetry, and I'm interested, but it's not so easy to find more than one source for a discussion. (There is a single U. website I know of with a discussion of it, and I haven't found a scholarly print edition before.) Two sources would be good, as a References section with one cite is shabby.) Geogre 20:25, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

The short version on Bysshe: Throughout the 16th-18th centuries, one's expensive primary education taught one to keep a Commonplace Book. This would be the collection of important and good things one had read. Nearly every major author we read today had his commonplace book of favorite passages from other authors. (It's not a bad idea if we did the same.) What Bysshe did (aside from being uncle to Percy Bysshe Shelley) was publish what was intended to be a commonplace book for poets. It was just supposed to be a sort of Famous Quotations, but people really liked it. Bysshe added (this is from memory) a primer on poetic forms and poetic developments, and the resulting The Art of Poetry became the late-18th century/19th century Bartlett's Quotations, Roget's Thesaurus, and Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics all in one. Bysshe had selected poetic passages from "important" authors, and we see those poets referred to by other authors consistently after his book came out. Furthermore, Bysshe inadvertantly created a literary canon. Poets joked with and satirized each others' overuse of Bysshe, and William Blake talks about using Bysshe as a sort of thought-of-the-day by thumbing through at random. (His wife randomly got a juicy passage from Aphra Behn, while he got a morose passage from Cowper.) Because he was a humble commonplace editor whose actual poetics weren't that profound, he gets virtually no respect now, and the influence of his reference work is known by specialists but not really tracked yet. (It's a dissertation waiting to be written.) Geogre 10:50, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
BTW, Hogarth's "The Distress'd Poet" is in use on my user page and in Augustan literature. I did a crop of the engraving to focus on the poet himself, leaving out his wife dealing with the landlady. The Bysshe is visible on his desk, along with the title of the "Ode" he's writing, "To Riches" and the "Map of the Gold Mines of Peru" behind him, the cat with dead rats, and the endangered baby behind him.

Alani Vazguez[edit]

How you Doing? I noticed that you merged (redirected) the article which I originated with LA LA Vazquez. My article which is more complete, was written on April and and the other on July. The other author is supposed to verify to see if another article already exists. The problem that I have with this move is that you did not move the history page of the first version and therefore the contribution credits by myself and others may be lost. This must be corrected or otherwise revert the articles as they were until somebody with the experience of inserting the history pages takes on the task. Take care Tony the Marine 00:04, September 13, 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks for answering. I liked your merge ,but I believe that it must be the other way around first, because the more informative article was written first and second because she is known as LA LA Vazguez now, but in the future she may call herself something else and she will be Alanis Vazquez. It's like JLo, her bio's are written with her proper name, Jennifer Lopez even though everybody calls her JLo . This is what I'm going to do, I'm going redirect the page back, including all of your excellent work. Then I'm going to talk to a fellow Administrator who is experienced with the history pages to create a template.

How's that sound? Tony the Marine 01:06, September 13, 2005 (UTC)

Cafe Racer[edit]

Hi,

I'd like to be pedantic here. Can you help me move Cafe racer back to Cafe Racer.


A Cafe Racer is a Cafe Racer. Not a Café Racer.

Indeed, they were originally spoken " Caff Racers " as they were used to race from Caff [ pronounced Kaff ] to Caff.

Again, this is a British thing. English-English rules apply. Not a French thing. If you want to be accurate and Wiki to be accuate, do not apply " dictionary rules " unless you actually know - or were involved - with the actual history of these things and know that you are right.

By all means have a link from Café for folk that get it wrong but emphatically, there were cafe or caff racers.

[ Much the reason for this was that British typewriters did not have an e with an acute and Caff is where you wen for coffee and tea. ]

Thanks.

Litter (animal)[edit]

Gee, I had hardly even finished (finally after months & months of thinking about it) created links to litter (animal) and then left it article-less, wondering whether I'd ever get around to putting something there (and thinking probably not), when, voila!, there's a cute picture in need of an article and a link in need of an article and a cute picture and someone to put them all together. (OK, that was a convoluted way of saying, good work, and quick, too.) Elf | Talk 02:08, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

HI. Yes I am aware there is a naming convention problem, and if you can find or start a discussion on possible ones let me know. This is especially true of the Arabic names, and I have been hesitant to do articles on them and on Hungarians, Russians, etc. because the naming is so variable. I do do searches almost all the time before I start new ones, but they are often that difficult to find. The Arabic names are worst: I have two articles that I have not been able to do because of name difficulties you can see here: Mofaddaliyat at User:DanielCD/Topics page (scroll down past the lists) and User:DanielCD/Muallaqat. It's been madening trying to work on these two. Anyway, I will try and search harder and be on the lookout for possible solutions. Thanks. --DanielCD 19:06, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

Mufaddaliyat[edit]

Hi- lol, well, I've softened my position some on 1911. The underlying narrative is excellent, it just takes a lot of work to re-phrase and make relevant to the modern reader, but it can be a diamond in the rough if enough work is put into it (along with adding newer material). The whole approach to history in EB is out-dated, the post-modernism approach is a rejection of that style. But we've got bigger things to worry about then writing post-modern history articles, when most WP articles are lacking even the basics, cart before the horse.

Re: Mufaddaliyat, I've scanned and put online the 2 pages. It contains a lot of special characters, and some parts entirely missing, so not sure whats appropriate, the subject is new to me. Hope that will be of some help, glad to do the same for other articles if needed. Stbalbach 04:46, 9 October 2005 (UTC)

I checked Dictionary of the Middle Ages, which has pretty decent Medieval Arabian literature coverage, and there was nothing on it, so was impressed to see such extensive coverage in EB11, as you say it may well be one of the best sources to this day. A re-write/phrase to make it more accesable/readable/popular might be valuable, but certainly a lot of work. Stbalbach 03:19, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Tarvos Trigaranos[edit]

Hi. I see you recategorised Tarvos Trigaranos from Celtic Religion to Celtic Mythology. We know that Tarvos Trigaranus is a deity, so Celtic Religion is appropriate. If you can tell me any mythology related to Tarvos Trigaranos please do so (there is none, of course). Pending that, I have reverted your edit. Is this a robot-related edit by any chance? --Nantonos 22:10, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Niels Bohr quote[edit]

Hi.

  • The quote on your user page is a paraphrase (but a very apt one).
  • Apparently it's become associated with Bohr (as evidenced by your user page), but the attribution to Bohr is wrong. Bohr gave the credit to his father. According to the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations (Revised 4th ed, 1996), S Rozental on p.328 of Niels Bohr (1967) quotes Bohr thus:
    • "One of the favourite maxims of my father was the distinction between the two sorts of truths, profound truths recognized by the fact that the opposite is also a profound truth, in contrast to trivialities where opposites are obviously absurd".

Of course, that doesn't mean that it was necessarily Bohr's father who coined the phrase originally. It may go back a long way for all I know. I hope that's useful. Cheers JackofOz 02:03, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the information on the spurious Niels Bohr quote. It is always good to know if quotes used are correct, hopelessly out of context or even real. Its one of those unfortunate times when a pithy quote loses its zest when all the facts are known. Thanks. MeltBanana 18:35, 23 October 2005 (UTC)
Yes, I agree. Maybe a solution is to retain the quote but de-attribute it. That way, you still have a pithy phrase to enjoy, but you're not misleading anybody as to its source. Cheers JackofOz 23:38, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Gutting of Charles Dickens[edit]

I noticed you described what User:Iago Dali has done to the article as "gutting". Am I right to say that you don't think these are improvements but are rather "deprovements" of the less trimmed versions. Please let me know what you think because I'm seriously thinking of lodging a FAC on him. I've tried to speak to him but to no avail, and he's mangling a lot of literary articles. Please check his user edits if you will, he has done similar treatment to Herman Melville, Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov, Turgenev etc. Mandel 01:21, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

Newfangle[edit]

The diff you pointed me to corresponds with the OED online entry, but I warn you: I really don't understand the entymology description. OED online has a questionable use in 1300, then a more reliable source in 1393 (Gower) followed by Chaucer in 1395. I would copy/paste a part of the entry here to show you, but I imagine it's copywirght violation. Is the correct course of action to remove the claim from the The Canon's Yeoman's Prologue and Tale?--Commander Keane 16:28, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Dickens references[edit]

Hi, I was hoping you could help with some references for the following:

  • "family was sent to prison for poverty" - not his father sent to debtors prison?
  • "he took pains to cover up what he considered his shameful, lowly past." - did Dickens call it his "shameful lowly" past? If not, what author used those words? Did Dickens say that Copperfield was autobiographical, if so, do you consider his greatest novel to be a "painful cover up"?

I think the language is fairly strong and paints a picture of Dickens and his relationship to his past as somewhat extreme. Also not "all" authors write about real-life experiences (philosophically of course on some level they do, but in Dickens case it was not an accident and that is the point of the sentence). --Stbalbach 01:44, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

It's a fairly sensitive section probably best handled by using words and or cites from well known sources, it currently has a deprecating tone. Dickens called Copperfield his "favourite child" is what I meant, not to suggest there could be a universal agreement of his greatest work. I understood it was Dickens father only, and not the whole Dickens family, that went to debtors prison, is that incorrect? --Stbalbach 04:13, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
To the best of my knowledge, the full answer to "who was incarcerated" is that Dickens' father was imprisoned for debt, ie, until the debt was paid. But early C19th British prisons worked very differently from the current model, and prisoners were permitted to have their families with them, so the family chose to move into the prison. I believe they would have had freedom to come and go until lock-up time at night, and even then one might bribe the guard to pass in or out. As long as the guard could produce the named prisoner on demand, most things were allowable.
But I actually came here to say, you removed my cruddy refs! They were rubbish, but were the article's only genuine "Here's where I got a particular piece of info" (I didn't know how to do footnotes at the time). What say you to us all getting competent with WP:CITE and getting into the habit of bunging in bits reffed footnotes every time we come across something useful? (Probably using Cite.PHP, as other methods need manual numbering.) I've just had this conversation with User:Hbackman, too, so between us the article might creep up to FA standard. JackyR | Talk 00:19, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Category:Women[edit]

I noticed your recent comment in the Anne Lefèvre article that "people are not generally classified by sex". You then removed the non-existent "category:Women scholars". That was reasobable enough.

Note however the existing "Category:Women" which further classifies women by nationality and occupation. Lefèvre and several other articles about women may fit well in one of its subcategories. User:Dimadick

Your comments are requested at Category talk:Fictional octopi and squids regarding whether it would be best to move this to Category:Fictional octopuses and squids or Category:Fictional cephalopods.
