POTD Request[edit]

Hi Armbrust,

Please try to add this image as POTD of 30th October ie the birthday of the performer. If possible please do the needful.

Thanks in advance : Bellus Delphina talk 11:40, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Will do once I get home. Armbrust The Homunculus 11:48, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much Armbrust for accepting my request and for the immediate reply : Bellus Delphina talk 11:50, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. The blurb will be written latter by Crisco 1492. Armbrust The Homunculus 12:57, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Excellent. Armbrust, I'm back on Wiki, so if there are further requests, please ping me as well. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 13:29, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

POTD notification (George Catlin)[edit]

Hi Armbrust,

Just to let you know, the Featured Picture File:William Fisk - George Catlin - Google Art Project.jpg is due to make an appearance as Picture of the Day on July 26, 2015. If you get a chance, you can check and improve the caption at Template:POTD/2015-07-26. Thank you for all of your contributions! — Chris Woodrich (talk) 23:53, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Just another great blurb. 718smiley.svg Face-smile.svg Thank you. Armbrust The Homunculus 04:41, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Category nominations[edit]

Just wondering why you are mass-opposing my nominations? With regards to the Bahamas nomination, as WP:STRONGNAT makes clear, categories about countries should use local variant of English spelling. British/Commonwealth spelling is used in The Bahamas. With regards to the Grenada nomination, you are failing to provide a serious reason of opposition. With the English atheists you are ignoring (C2C, C2D) the category tree, practice, article title and parent category. Irrelgion is not a religion. That's the whole point. AusLondonder (talk) 01:06, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Because I disagree with you rationale. C2C is for "Bringing a category into line with established naming conventions for that category tree". If such a convention doesn't exist, than C2C isn't applicable. Armbrust The Homunculus 04:44, 7 July 2015 (UTC)ű
However, you have ignored the evidence regarding English atheists clearly meeting the criteria. Secondly, the convention to use local variant of English is well established. I regularly nominate such categories without any issues. AusLondonder (talk) 05:01, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
No, it doesn't meet it as a subcategory of Category:English people by religion. Also dividing up British categories after the constituent nations is a standard praxis in the category tree (see: Category:British people).
That's probably because the other category trees consistently use that variant of English (like the one for India and the United Kingdom). Armbrust The Homunculus 05:20, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi Armbrust, thanks for tagging a pair that I listed but didn't finish nominating.
Would you consider withdrawing your opposition to the "Performance art in Foo City" at WP:CFDS? – Fayenatic London 10:32, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/File:Hegassen scroll.jpg[edit]

Armbrust, this picture was entirely Bgwhite idea, the reason why he never edited it because I made the nom, and he agreed, he is a legimate co-nom, by agreement. I should have probably asked him to sign the page himself, but he looked content with this so he never did so, in spite of the fact I pointed out the nomination to him, he never went back to sign it. Check the diffs. here and here. It was his idea and he agreed to co-nom... So I really think he should be credited too. Please? Hafspajen (talk) 16:19, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, but only people can receive credit as a co-nominator, who take part in the discussion. Armbrust The Homunculus 06:23, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Armbrust that vote was there before, you removed it. This is not fair towars Bghwite, I was showing you all the evidence above that it was his idea, that we discussed it. The only thing that doesn't happened that he missed to sign it himself. Now PLEASE don't do this, it is not fair. He deserve this nomination, he was happy about it and he was looking forward to this. It was maybe a mistake not to sign it, but come on, he was set -up during the whole nomination as a con-nom. He might not sign it, but this is only a formality, and assuming that neither Bgwhite or me are criminals or trying to snach undeserved credits, it think this should be possible to be fixed somehow. He is a good admin and a nice person and you have all the evidence that was indeed a co-nom. Hafspajen (talk) 14:48, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Also, per not to bite the newbies - Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers. Bgwhite is newbeginner. On DYKs you can put on anyone without you ever need to ask them to sign it for you, so he maybe though there was no need for that? Maybe Bghwithe thought is was OK, as it was. this was his first FP nomination. Hafspajen (talk) 15:39, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it was there, but it wasn't signed by him. (I only noticed, because the signature's timestamp was a date before the voting periods start.)
Also I don't see in anz of the diffs, that he intended that this picture become a FP candidate, he just wanted to add an image to your talk page.
IMO newbeginner isn't the same as newcomer. Also you can't, even at DYK, sign in the place of someone else. See WP:SIGFORGE. Armbrust The Homunculus 20:26, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Suspend[edit]

Could you suspend this nom a little bit? I'm nearly done restoring the front half, but it won't be today; once it's done I'll notify the voters. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:12, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

I think I will postpone closure instead of suspending it. There is less than 2,5 hours until than. Armbrust The Homunculus 21:16, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
Aye, just seems pointless to promote only to have a delist and replace opened hours later. Adam Cuerden (talk) 21:29, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
I will not promote anything from that nomination (at least for now). Just like the John Morrison and Kamal Bahamdan nominations are still open in the Suspended nominations section. Armbrust The Homunculus 21:33, 1 August 2015 (UTC)

Restoration done[edit]

It's done. Let's get the votes clarified, which I don't imagine will take long. Adam Cuerden (talk) 18:55, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Vithoba[edit]

Hello, thanks for closing discussion at Talk:1st Indian Cavalry Brigade‎. You have closed discussion only after 2 votes. Can you close discussion at Talk:Vithoba? In two sections there are nearly 7-8 people supported move, while only 2 people opposed without replying to counter. Thanks. --Human3015Send WikiLove  09:54, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

That RM hasn't reached the full listing period (7 days), so it shouldn't be closed yet. Armbrust The Homunculus 20:11, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Use of {{RMnac}} with RM closes[edit]

Hello Armbrust! First let me apologize for not pinging you in the discussion at User talk:Fuhghettaboutit – I probably should have done that straight away, but my original question about your closes was informational, not accusatory, and I really didn't wish to alarm you about it. In any case, sorry about that.

But, in light of the above-referenced discussion, it seems pretty clear from WP:RMNAC that you should be signing all of your closes with the {{RMnac}} template. The relevant section of the guideline states, "Any non-admin closure must be explicitly declared with template {{RMnac}} placed directly after the reasoning for the close within the {{RM top}} template." So I would ask that you please start signing all of your closes with the {{RMnac}} template now. Thank you! --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:46, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Okay. Armbrust The Homunculus 20:12, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

You Can't Take It w/With You[edit]

I respectfully disagree with your closure of this requested move. I just noticed the RM on my watchlist when you closed it, so I didn't comment in the discussion, but I don't believe the number of editors who participated were sufficient to establish a consensus. Please let me know if you'd be willing to reopen this for additional discussion or if I should go ahead and seek some form of formal move review. Thanks for your consideration. Newyorkbrad (talk) 21:14, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

IMO there was sufficient participation to reach consensus, especially for an RM (which sometimes are closed without any comment at all). Also the nomination has run for more than 18 days, so there is no need for additional discussion. Armbrust The Homunculus 21:50, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
The outcome of this little-publicized RM (that's totally not your fault) is so clearly unsatisfactory that I feel compelled to pursue the matter. That said, I'm not sure what is the best way of doing so. I will give some thought and let you know what, if anything, I figure out can be done.
