OTD December 14[edit]

Hi Adam, thanks for adding 1918 United Kingdom general election to WP:Selected anniversaries/December 14. Unfortunately, that article is not in very good shape, so I was unable to use it. If you have time to add references to it sometime before the 14th, we can get it back in. Thanks. howcheng {chat} 21:35, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Many Thanks[edit]

Adam Cuerden, I seriously doesn't know how to express how happy I am after seeing the wholehearted support. Many many thanks Adam Cuerden for encouraging me to try the same. Obviously I will be contributing more and more.

One more picture I have added recently, if you can have a look and if there is any correction, please retouch it. It is also, one of the rarest pictures because, picture of judge in robes is very less in wiki other than the scanned ones. Please have a look. DreamSparrow Chat 15:36, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Adam, I'm no technical expert with regard to restorations. Simply as a viewer, I'd like a little more contrast or sharpness, but maybe the image doesn't lend itself to that sort of manipulation. You're the restoration artist.

Women's events and developments in 1919[edit]

Hi Adam. I see you replaced this with a redirect to 1919 in women's history but as far as I can see you did not incorporate any of the information in the article. I now find I can no longer access it. Have you any idea how I can retrieve it? It contains quite a lot of useful info I would have liked to include in our 2019 focus on Suffrage?--Ipigott (talk) 12:38, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

@Ipigott: That was actually a page move; 1919 in women's history should be exactly the same page with the suggested standardised title from the AfD. It is possible some of the information was edited out afterwards. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 14:32, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
1919 in women's history is not the problem. The article I am looking for is Women's events and developments in 1919. The article's history has disappeared. Perhaps Megalibrarygirl can help to retrieve it. No rush. This can of course wait until after the Christmas break.--Ipigott (talk) 15:10, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ipigott: is the content different? Megalibrarygirl (talk) 17:27, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
My apologies to both Adam and Sue. For some reason, I was looking at 1919 rather than 1919 in women's history. I now see that everything is OK. So I'll be able to incorporate important events into our 2019 focus on Suffrage. Sorry to have bothered you both with this. My mistake. Enjoy the Christmas festivities.--Ipigott (talk) 08:02, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
No worries, Ipigott! Megalibrarygirl (talk) 18:45, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

Help, please[edit]

Adam, I wonder if I can prevail on you to work some magic, please? There's an illustration over 2 pages of The Builder, 1891, pages 890 & 891, of the side-elevation of Battersea Town Hall (aka New Parochial Offices, Battersea), in a huge PDF of The Builder, vol.61, 1891. I'm wondering if you'd be willing to use your mad skillz to snag the two images and join them together. And if you're completely in the spirit of things, there's a front-elevation of the same building on page 886 which has a distinct page-fold wrinkle bottom centre. Feel free to tun down the request - I know you're full of busy with suffragettes & such, but shy bairns get nothing, as they say. For copyright purposes, the architect died in 1908, so they're all PD. Thanks & season's greetings to you. Hope the leak didn't cause too much bother. --Tagishsimon (talk) 16:52, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

@Tagishsimon: I don't actually have a good PDF editor - thems cost money - but if you can get someone else to extract them, I'll stitch them. The image is by the architect? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 17:29, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Adam. Yes, those are by Edward Mountford, or someone in his office. As to extracting, they're full page scans, so I think the only option is a screengrab ... I could do that, or you could? Can I show you a far more severe problem - https://twitter.com/Tagishsimon/status/1077254377864335360 - an entire window section lost in the fold. Would that be beyond repair? --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:55, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Front elevation is already on Commons - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:New_Parochial_Offices,_Battersea_-_Front_Elevation.png though tbh the wrinkle is unlikel to bother anyone. --Tagishsimon (talk) 17:56, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Merry Christmas![edit]

Bento José Rufino Capinam - Nascimento de Cristo.jpg
Methinks I see an heavenly Host
Of angels on the wing;
Methinks I hear their cheerful notes,
So merrily they sing.

Let all your fears be banished hence,
Glad tidings I proclaim;
For there's a Savior born today
And Jesus is his name.

Lay down your crooks and quit your flocks,
To Bethlehem repair;
And let your wandering steps be squared
By yonder shining star.

Seek not in courts or palaces;
Nor royal curtains draw;
But search the stable,
See your God extended on the straw.

Then learn from hence, ye rural swains,
The meekness of your God,
Who left the boundless realms of joy,
To ransom you with blood.

The master of the inn refused
A more commodious place;
Ungenerous soul of savage mold
And destitute of grace.

- from William Billings, "Shiloh"

High Court of Andhra Pradesh[edit]

Hi Adam,

I need an urgent help to create an article High Court of Andhra Pradesh [1]. This page was in existance and later merged with Telangana High Court. But now as per notification, President of India has assented to function a new High court at Amaravati as High Court of Andhra Pradesh from 01.01.2019. Since the existed page redirected to Telangana High Court, I am not able to start a new page with name High Court of Andhra Pradesh. Please help me to start a page.

6.3% of FPs[edit]

That's an impressive number, Adam. Would you consider sharing the code? Best wishes, --Charlesjsharp (talk) 10:48, 9 January 2019 (UTC)


@Charlesjsharp: Sure. I should note that I'm piggybacking off some code from my User page, but the basic idea is simple enough. It needs to transclude a page, as the code's too long otherwise; in my case, User:Adam Cuerden/FPperc which has the following code:

{{#expr:{{User:Adam Cuerden/Current FP total}}/{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Featured pictures|files|R}}*100 round 1}}%

This is a fairly simple percentage calculation. {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Featured pictures|files|R}} is what it sounds like: the number of featured pictures, or as good of an estimate as we have. {{User:Adam Cuerden/Current FP total}} is the number of FPs I have.

Now, here you're probably going to want to do it slightly differently than I do. The code in Current FP total is {{#expr:387.75+{{User:Adam Cuerden}}}}

387.75 is the number of FPs in all years previous to this one - I used fractions for some collaborations - and {{User:Adam Cuerden}} ...Has a series of <noinclude> tags that mean the only thing actually returned is the number in the phrase "These 0 restorations from the first 1 months of 2019..."

You can probably simplify this. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 18:36, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Adam, I tried to modify it, but failed! Charlesjsharp (talk) 22:01, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
@Charlesjsharp: Well, where do you want to put your FP count? I can help from there. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 23:53, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Success (well almost!) I've got the script working on my Commons home page for each category of my FPs. Strangely, it seems to work if I change the R}}*100 round 1} to R}}*1 round 1} except for the reptlies category. --Charlesjsharp (talk) 09:35, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Featured picture advice[edit]

Hey Adam. I am trying to improve my photographic skills and was hoping you could give me advice. For something like c:File:BSPP_Male_Straight_Thread.png, what could I improve to make it FP eligible? I may have to setup my lightbox to shoot it in. The subjects are pretty small, so I could use a macro lens to take the shots with better clarity and focus (my other photos have issues there). What do you suggest? Kees08 (Talk) 00:44, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Pictures[edit]

Thank you for your offer of help chez Rossini. All contributions gratefully received. If you have a further moment, I wonder if you can find any suitable pictures to illustrate Cavalcade which I've just given a wash-and-brush-up. I can't find a blessed thing, and the text is rather slab-like without any pictorial relief. Tim riley talk 16:00, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

@Tim riley: Ooh, that's a bit harder. The trouble is that modern plays don't more-or-less-default to having something out of copyright. I think the best option might be a picture of A. the theatre it was performed in, and B. Noel Coward. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 17:55, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough! I'm half sorry that an image expert is stumped and half relieved that I haven't missed something obvious. Thank you anyway! Tim riley talk 18:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@Tim riley: Okay. Here's my suggestions:
  • https://www.loc.gov/resource/ggbain.38534/ is damaged pretty irrepairably, but only on the legs, so we can probably crop something for Coward himself from it
  • Soldiers of the Queen" is from Patience, right? I can get a poster for that, no problem. You should cover the sources of the music anyway. There's a contemporary recording of Alexander's Ragtime Band on its page, I believe, and if you list the music properly, I can get a list.
  • The Relief of Mafeking is probably coverable through images, likewise Victoria's funeral, the sinking of the Titanic, and, of course, the First World War. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.7% of all FPs 18:17, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Dinorah[edit]

Adam, can you please, PLEASE take that poster, which is lovely, out of the Meyerbeer template on the article Dinorah and put it somewhere else in the article and restore Meyerbeer's picture in the template? I tried to do it myself but I cannot figure it out. It is very important to me,call it a weird quirk, that the composers on the articles I work on the most - Meyerbeer, Handel,Offenbach - have their pictures at the top of the page and the same picture every time, it unifies their articles. I would really appreciate it.Smeat75 (talk) 00:34, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

I found an earlier version you had with the poster lower down and Meyerbeer's picture at the top so I restored it. I hope you don't mind.Smeat75 (talk) 00:40, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
@Smeat75: Understood, although we really should change the image of Meyerbeer overall - there's photos of him, you know. https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b531202483.r=meyerbeer?rk=386268;0 maybe? After some levels tweaks? Or https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b84542968/f1.item.r=Meyerbeer.zoom ? Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.3% of all FPs 04:15, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
If you would like to change the template image to one of those photos,that is fine with me. I just want an image of the composer at the top of the page. I like the first of those two the best, but I am sure whatever you choose will be excellent. Thanks for all your great images.Smeat75 (talk) 13:36, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

A pie for you![edit]

A very beautiful Nectarine Pie.jpg I've done a few of these at an (extremely) amateur level - I can appreciate just how tedious & time-consuming it can be. Thank You! Rskurat (talk) 07:17, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Feedback?[edit]

Hey there,

I've only done a couple restorations in the past, and find I second guess myself about what can/should be repaired/adjusted. Would you mind taking a quick look at one I uploaded to give your opinion?

Original: File:Hellen Keller circa 1920.jpg

New: File:Helen Keller circa 1920 - restored.jpg

Note that the latter has two versions in its upload history. I saved the one with tone adjustments separately, since I wasn't sure how I felt about it.

Thanks. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 05:31, 18 February 2019 (UTC)

Went ahead with it. Feedback still appreciated if you have time. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 00:08, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

@83d40m: Within reason. I do kind of need decent quality bases to work from, though - a 400z600px image is limited in how much you can do, and an extremely damaged image you need to be passionate about to push through. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.3% of all FPs 13:56, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

WikiCup 2019 March newsletter[edit]

And so ends the first round of the competition. Everyone with a positive score moves on to Round 2. With 56 contestants qualifying, each group in Round 2 contains seven contestants, with the two leaders from each group due to qualify for Round 3 as well as the top sixteen remaining contestants.

Our top scorers in Round 1 were:

  • United States L293D, a WikiCup newcomer, led the field with ten good articles on submarines for a total of 357 points.
  • Pirate Flag of Henry Every.svg Adam Cuerden, a WikiCup veteran, came next with 274 points, mostly from eight featured pictures, restorations of artwork.
  • Denmark MPJ-DK, a wrestling enthusiast, was in third place with 263 points, garnered from a featured list, five good articles, two DYKs and four GARs.
  • United States Usernameunique came next at 243, with a featured article and a good article, both on ancient helmets.
  • Flag of the United States Library of Congress 2.svg Squeamish Ossifrage was in joint fifth place with 224 points, mostly garnered from bringing the 1937 Fox vault fire to featured article status.
  • Ohio Ed! was also on 224, with an amazing number of good article reviews (56 actually).

These contestants, like all the others, now have to start scoring points again from scratch. Between them, contestants completed reviews on 143 good articles, one hundred more than the number of good articles they claimed for, thus making a substantial dent in the review backlog. Well done all!

Remember that any content promoted after the end of Round 1 but before the start of Round 2 can be claimed in Round 2. Invitations for collaborative writing efforts or any other discussion of potentially interesting work is always welcome on the WikiCup talk page. Remember, if two or more WikiCup competitors have done significant work on an article, all can claim points. If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article candidates, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews.

If you want to help out with the WikiCup, please do your bit to keep down the review backlogs! Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Request for restoration[edit]

Hi Adam, would you be willing to restore a photo of Marie Curie? It looks like one of these has already had some restoration work, but it's lost detail in the process, while another is probably a zoom of the same photo. I think that one of your restoration jobs would be great, probably on the photo that I'm putting on the left of this gallery. --Pine 03:58, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Photo restoration?[edit]

If you're need something to work on, I'd appreciate if you could consider File:Csepel NH87669.jpg.

WikiCup 2019 May newsletter[edit]

The second round of the 2019 WikiCup has now finished. Contestants needed to scored 32 points to advance into round 3. Our top four scorers in round 2 all scored over 400 points and were:

  • Scotland Cas Liber (1210), our winner in 2016, with two featured articles and three DYKs. He also made good use of the bonus points available, more than doubling his score by choosing appropriate articles to work on.
  • Wales Kosack (750), last year's runner up, with an FA, a GA, two FLs, and five DYKs.
  • Pirate Flag of Henry Every.svg Adam Cuerden (480), a WikiCup veteran, with 16 featured pictures, mostly restorations.
  • Kingdom of Prussia Zwerg Nase (461), a seasoned competitor, with a FA, a GA and an ITN item.

Other notable performances were put in by Chicago Barkeep49 with six GAs, United States Ceranthor, England Lee Vilenski, and Saskatchewan Canada Hky, each with seven GARs, and Denmark MPJ-DK with a seven item GT.

So far contestants have achieved nine featured articles between them and a splendid 80 good articles. Commendably, 227 GARs have been completed during the course of the 2019 WikiCup, so the backlog of articles awaiting GA review has been reduced as a result of contestants' activities. The judges are pleased with the thorough GARs that are being performed, and have hardly had to reject any. As we enter the third round, remember that any content promoted after the end of round 2 but before the start of round 3 can be claimed in round 3. Remember too that you must claim your points within 14 days of "earning" them.

If you are concerned that your nomination—whether it is at good article nominations, a featured process, or anywhere else—will not receive the necessary reviews, please list it on Wikipedia:WikiCup/Reviews Needed (remember to remove your listing when no longer required). Questions are welcome on Wikipedia talk:WikiCup, and the judges are reachable on their talk pages or by email. Good luck!

Aletta Jacobs, FYI[edit]

When the article was approved for GA, I nominated it for DYK, but in discussing it, some editors don't want to hold it until the 18 September centennial for women's suffrage in the Netherlands. At any rate, per the discussion, when the FP passes, they will reserve the date and I'll just cancel the DYK. Again, I thank you for all of your help on these photos. Your work is so amazing!

I need help Adam[edit]

Hello Adam! I want to nominate another picture which is featured in Arthur Rostron, the one he is with Margaret Brown, but I'm unsure as you close in the pixelation and points when you zoom. I downloaded GIMP but don't understand English so I cannot better it. Can you check it if it's suitable for FP nomination? I don't want to be annoying on that beautiful section. Kind regards. --LLcentury (talk) 16:11, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your quick response, there are two that are good but don't meet the 1500x1500 criteria :( --LLcentury (talk) 16:57, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes, effectively, I've done research for the past two hours and none match the 1500x1500 criteria except the one I mentioned you. Kind regards. --LLcentury (talk) 19:10, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the TIFF advice Adam. None meet criteria, even in TIFF, only the one I uploaded, but only meets criteria in size not sure in pixelation. Best wishes and profusely apologise any annoying. --LLcentury (talk) 21:21, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Adam, it's me again, you see suitable the picture of Arthur Rostron and Margaret Brown? Best wishes, best luck & Kind regards. --LLcentury (talk) 23:50, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

@LLcentury: Sorry I've been slow on this. Just haven't had a whole lot of time, and have kind of been focusing on what I could do. I'll do my best. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 20:26, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

POTD for 8 June[edit]

Thanks for scheduling your restoration of the Coldstream Guards for Saturday's POTD. I feel, however, that Facial hair in the British military might not be the best choice for the target article. Wikipedia:Featured pictures/People/Military captions the image with Coldstream Guards, which I think is a more apt caption for the image; POTD appearances also tend to follow the featured picture directory in this regard. To this end, I've decided to replace the target article with Coldstream Guards, including rewriting the blurb with text adapted from there, as well as providing information pertaining to the provenance, etc. of the picture itself. See also User talk:Amakuru#POTD for 8 June. If you have any concerns with my blurb, feel free to discuss them on my talk page. Once again, thank you and happy birthday! — RAVENPVFF · talk · 15:31, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ravenpuff: That seems fair. My birthday's on the 8th, and I thought Facial hair in the military had a bit more directly immediate context for the Crimean War, and also might be a bit more fun. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 20:28, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Requesting your expertise...[edit]

...on another FPC submission.

I'd love to get a work by Martha Ann Honeywell featured - I'd prefer the cutout shown in the article, but I wouldn't necessarily mind one of the silhouettes. What do you think? Any of them work, or are there issues with them? --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 03:20, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ser Amantio di Nicolao: I think the cutout is best. People may complain the tiny text is unreadable, and say it's not high enough resolution, a transcription may help alleviate such claims. I'd say it's at least worth a try. I don't think the silhouette currently in the article would pass, because of reproduction issues, though. By the way, while looking it up, I discovered https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/14049 - and the commentary on the embroidery school this comes from, which is probably well worth an article. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.6% of all FPs 03:48, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, there are concerns about all four of the silhouettes on Commons. Others are available - I'd just need to upload them. Still, I prefer the cutout for a number of reasons. Thanks for the advice - I'll try to get it up at FPC tomorrow.
Thanks for the pointer to the sampler. I know of at least one other similar embroidery school that would likely be worth writing up. I'm going to be going out of town for a few weeks beginning a week from Wednesday, so I'll put it on my to-do list to look into upon my return. There's a lot in the way of American folk culture that I think is worth pursuing, both for WiR and separate from it. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:22, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Valentina Tereshkova[edit]

I recall you asking somewhere for suggestions for photos to touch up. Perhaps File:RIAN archive 612748 Valentina Tereshkova.jpg would be a good candidate. I think it might not be salvageable, but it would be good for documenting the history of spaceflight if it was. Otherwise, perhaps File:RIAN archive 159271 Nikita Khrushchev, Valentina Tereshkova, Pavel Popovich and Yury Gagarin at Lenin Mausoleum.jpg. There are many images of her on Commons, you may be able to find a more encyclopedic version than I have found. If you have no time for it, no worries. Kees08 (Talk) 07:40, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

FP again, sorry profusely[edit]

Hi Adam, I am a pain in the neck I know, but I am newbie in the section. Do my nominations for Byun Yo-han and Tensai Okamura need to be added to "needing feedback" as they are about to close? Or not? Thanks! --LLcentury (talk) 12:23, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi Adam, I don't know if it happens to you, FP is an awesome place, but it's extremely frustrating when nobody gives a iota about FPcs needing feedback. They're quick to oppose, yet nobody cares to look at needed supported or opposed pictures. Sorry, nothing against you, just needed to take it out. --LLcentury (talk) 13:19, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
