Continuity of English[edit]

Hiya there. I added a bit to the answers given to a question you asked about the history of English over on WP:RD and only now have noticed that it was already archived when I answered. Oops! In case you were still interested, it's at Wikipedia:Reference desk/Archives/Language/2007 September 4. Telsa (talk) 10:31, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Fun Home[edit]

Yeah, I'm pretty happy today. I mentioned that September 10 was Alison Bechdel's birthday at Wikipedia talk:Today's featured article/requests, but didn't make a formal request because I was trying to find a freely licensed image for the article first. (There used to be a photo of Bechdel in the article, but it was mislicensed.) I didn't find a free picture, but Raul put the article up anyway — I guess he liked it! —Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 21:06, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

England v Germany[edit]

Hi Angmering, I prefer to post this here, for it is pretty private stuff and not relevant to the article. Seriously, what Margaret Thatcher said was outrageous. But considering that Basil Fawlty delighted the audience of the BBC only years before, many people in England would probably have reacted in a similar way. When I read it I didn't think of the hundreds of thousands who lost their lives in these wars (my grand dad being one of them), and neither did Mrs Thatcher I dare say. Still I guess that most Germans will find this comparison quite as amusing as I do - it is just so completely out of proportion. At the end of the day, this type of statement says more about the person who says it that about the person it is aimed at. dentsdelyon20:00, 11 September 2007 CET

I get your point, and maybe I am doing poor Basil injustice, but I have a very personal experience linked to his character. About five years ago when I was at Uni in England, I went to campus in my car (with German license plates). When I parked it, three undergrads came marching up on me, Fawlty-style, and once they were at about five yards distance, they saluted. They didn't look the BNP lads, they were just doing it for the fun I guess. As I said, this is an individual experience, but I understand that this scene is among the best-remembered of the programme. And I believe that this is the actual danger of it, compared to Thatcher. When a comedian makes fun of this sort of thing, the audience believes that this is a subjet fit to make fun of. It has made its way into popular culture, and I dare say that it will remain there for a while. Let's not make too much of a thing of it. dentsdelyon12:57, 12 September 2007 CET

Glasses chat[edit]

You're all clever people who know a lot about things, so someone answer me this, as I am puzzled. I got a new pair of glasses yesterday (I'm horribly shortsighted). Very nice they are too, and I am very happy with them. But I have noticed that any light they reflect is green! The lenses are fine to look through, but if you take them off and have a look at them, or look in a mirror and can see lights reflecting off them, it's always been turned green. Bizarre! What's that all about then?

Obviously, you've been given a pair of spectacles from the Emerald City.
Josiah Rowe (talkcontribs) 15:51, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
Uncoated glasses lens (top) versus lens with anti-reflective coating. Shamelessly stolen from Anti-reflective coating. Zoom right in and you can see the photographer in the top lens!
I can help you a little... The green reflection is because you are the lucky owner of glasses with anti-reflective coating. Indeed you can even see in the picture that someone's gone to the trouble of taking (ah, WP is so wonderful) that the difference in the two lenses is that the bottom one has a greenish reflection when viewed from the front.
As you can see from the piece, you should be very grateful for the anti-reflective coating. Without it you would find it much harder to work with computer monitors and would no doubt be unable to spend so much time making Wikipedia better. The article is not very clear on why it's always green though. Something to do with the refractive index. 22:38, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Kneale01.JPG[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Kneale01.JPG. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 18:21, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Defining comma[edit]

With regard to your edit to the Hugh Laurie article. The comma should be there because the sentence describes "his friend and comedy partner". Laurie only had one friend who would go on to become his comedy partner. If the latter was deleted from the sentence then "his friend Stephen Fry" would be perfectly correct, since Laurie has more than one friend. A similar problem arose with the last line of the paragraph, which at one time referred to the "the American drama, House". Clearly this is wrong since there is more than one American drama, so the comma was removed. Similarly, at the time of writing, "Laurie's novel, The Gun Seller" is correct since he has only one published novel. However, by the time the second is issued, "Laurie's novel The Gun Seller" would tell the reader that there is more than one. :-) Chris 42 (talk) 18:46, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Delamitri.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Delamitri.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

David Tennant's billing request Re; new "Doctor Who" series[edit]

It is with significant effort that I have identified you as the person responsible for citing Doctor Who Magazine's report that David Tennant himself requested that he be credited as playing "The Doctor" rather than "Doctor Who" in the new Doctor Who series (I also noticed that, for no stated reason whatsoever, Khaosworks removed the specification of the page on which this is to be found, p. 23). I would like to suggest that you get the issue's cover date, the title of the article or column in which this information appeared, and the name of its author, and make a properly encyclopedic reference citation of it. I myself have no issue after #320, and therefore can't do this myself. Here's hoping you still have your copy. Ted Watson (talk) 20:38, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Behind the sofa[edit]

Hello Paul. With all due respect, that's not a fair edit. I accept it was a light-hearted change I made, but Behind the Sofa is not exactly a heavily intellectual article, and surely Wikipedia has room for a modicum of irony. Best regards, Neil. Annatto (talk) 16:51, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi. As far as i see it Wikipedia is a place where intelligent minded people can read intelligently sourced material. When reading an article I usually make a judgement, based on the legibility and citations, as to how much I trust the piece. I trust the average Wiki-reader to make a similar decision.

Cowering behind the sofa is something I very much remember as a child. As the article states "its use is usually intended to be humorous and/or nostalgic." I don't see any reason why the article should not reflect the humorous intent.

For many years the Oxford English Dictionary featured "Fool's errand" as "see Errand"; and "Errand" as "See Fool". Why should Wikipedis be so humourless when dealing with such unimportant issues? Annatto (talk) 19:14, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Pride and Prejudice (1995 TV serial)[edit]

Hello. I am currently working on getting Pride and Prejudice (1995 TV serial) to GA standard (maybe even higher someday), and I found this edit of yours from 2.5 years ago, in which you added two newspaper sources about the initial critical reception that I couldn't find online. Do you have more of those at hand (please don't jump through hoops for me)? Because initial critical reception is kind of the one weak spot of the article where googling hasn't really helped me so far. I have extensive sources for all other parts of the article (most of them already added), but I guess I could also merge the current "Reception" section and "Influence and legacy" section into one so that the lack of the initial critical reception is less noticable.

Can I also ask you what the difference is between the words "adaption" and "adaptation" (as in novel->miniseries)? I'm a non-native speaker, my dictionary doesn't make it clear, and the used sources don't make it clear either (they seem to use both words, but I'd like some consistency).

Last question because I think you know/like the miniseries well enough to give me a second opinion. I'd like to illustrate the infamous pond scene with a fair-use image. I have a DVD screencap that probably shows the "wet shirt" best (I would have liked to have a screencap of the two main characters at the same time, but that's not how it ended up in the miniseries), but I've also found this and this promo shot (lower quality, but they at least show the characters at the same time). Do you have a strong preference for one of the three?

I hope you can help. Thanks. – sgeureka tc 17:09, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

it should be easy enough to use it to find some more reviews from the time - I shall try and get hold of a few for you, with the appropriate citation details. - That would be very kind and much appreciated. Thank you. (If you find something, you can copy it to my talk, to a new subpage of mine, or email it to me.) – sgeureka tc 21:30, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi again. I have found some more usuable reviews from 1995/1996 myself (I kept the reception section short and to the point), and I have now improved the article to what I believe is near-FA quality (it is already GA). Since you're British, and since you're interested in British television history, would you mind reading over the article for British grammar and spelling? I have written my previous two FAs (and a few GAs) in American English since that's where I am most comfortable, but P&P is my first British article and I'd like to be sure that I have nailed it before submitting it to FAC in a week or so. I have also asked User:Bradley0110 for a read-through, but two more eyes can't hurt. I am still tweaking for conciseness here and there, but my prose and grammar skills shouldn't be a problem otherwise. – sgeureka tc 09:12, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. That gives my confidence an extra-boost. :-) – sgeureka tc 22:53, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

As the writer of the six featured articles, you're welcome to co-nominate it. Any help on the article before it's reviewed would be greatly appreciated. Frankly your work deserves the recognition. -- Escape Artist Swyer Talk Contributions 20:55, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

I originally thought I might have to bring the films up to good article status too but, if you read the topic at the discussion page, I was assured it was a topic in its own right. Basically, if there's anything you think needs improving in the article, drop me a line about it before it's reviewed for good status. -- Escape Artist Swyer Talk Contributions 21:23, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Quatermass images[edit]

The GA-review of Quatermass (TV serial) is on hold, see Talk:Quatermass (TV serial)/GA1 where most of the issues have since been addressed. However, I don't know how to lower the resolution of the images you uploaded - Image:Quatermass1979-01.JPG and Image:Quatermass1979-02.JPG. As you uploaded them, I assume you have some kind of image editing tool. Could you sort this out as I think it's the last thing left? -- Escape Artist Swyer Talk Contributions 16:55, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. The article hopefully should pass now and we can put the lot up at Featured Topic Candidates. -- Escape Artist Swyer Talk Contributions 23:38, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
It passed :) I'm nomming the topic so turn up to co-nom if you want. -- Escape Artist Swyer Talk Contributions 13:39, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Quatermassdvd.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Quatermassdvd.JPG. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. MBisanz talk 13:57, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Xperiment[edit]

Hi Paul. Thanks for your kind words about The Quatermass Xperiment. I'm hoping to get the other two films up to scratch in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! - Joe King (talk) 16:36, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

2003 Formula One season[edit]

Sorry about that. An anon user reverted my work, so it was unfortunate that you made your edit right after it. I don't have any problem with your distinction on Montoya's mathematical chances, thanks for pointing that out. GoldDragon (talk) 16:52, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Quatermass Memoirs[edit]

I don't know whether you're aware, but The Quatermass Memoirs has been nominated at WP:GAN by an editor who hasn't edited the article. At this stage, it's unlikely to pass, as the lead is insufficient. Bradley0110 (talk) 08:58, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Re: BBC Holmes[edit]

Thanks for the good news. While I freely admit that I assumed the Cushing run was as gone as Wilmer's because I could just barely document that it had been made in the first place, it was reported in no uncertain terms many years ago that the Wilmer episodes were indeed all wiped and not copied onto film. I can only assume that, like much early Dr. Who, some copies were found somewhere else in more recent years. --Tbrittreid (talk) 20:28, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

There's lot of cites. Start with the book ref I included on the Article talk page, which has a whole chapter devoted to his time as NFB head. Then this cite has a bit of overview of some of his clashes with CTV as head of the CRTC. Googling his name along with NFB, CRTC, CBC and "Secretary of State" will no doubt summon further results, as would his name with "On est au coton," one of the films he banned. Remember to check Google Books and Google Scholar, too. I'd like to help you but I can't right now: too swamped with work. best, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 15:14, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
