Sockmaster Turkspasha[edit]

Thank you for taking notice. Its CU blocked sockmaster Turkspasha again. I've already requested another rangeblock. His IPs always geolocate to Taylor, Michigan; obsessed with Azerifying/Turkifying topics related to Iran. He's at it since 2015. Just to let you know. Take care, - LouisAragon (talk) 18:29, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for picking up the IP stuff that I missed. Beyond My Ken (talk) 02:52, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

A Night at the Opera screenshots[edit]

Just wanted to let you know about Wikipedia:Files for discussion/2018 October 4#A Night at the Opera screenshots. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:22, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Emmet Building[edit]

I see you took a great photo of the building back in 2011. The Patch says it's in Murray Hill and your description says Rose Hill. I tried to sort it out but it seems, at least based on our boundary descriptions, that the areas overlap? Anyway, I just wanted to give you a heads up. If you'd rather write up the article yourself from scratch or using the bit I started please have at it. Take care. FloridaArmy (talk) 03:02, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

  • @FlordiaArmy: - The AIA Guide to New York City lists the building as being in Rose Hill, but Rose Hill is not a neighborhood name that is used very frequently. However, the description of Murray Hill as going down to 27th Street is almost certainly an overreach by the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association. I would agree with the NYCLPC that Murray Hill starts at about 34th Street, a delineation which the Encyclopedia of New York City agrees with. Given that, I wouldn't use Murray Hill in your draft article - I think your choices are Rose Hall or NOMAD. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:29, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The NYCLPC Designation Report at http://s-media.nyc.gov/agencies/lpc/lp/2603.pdf does not place it in a specific neighborhood, but does say that it is in what was "the warehouse district north of Madison Square Park", which to me makes "NoMAD" the best choice. If I have a few moments tomorrow, I'll try to supplement your draft with some additional references. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:36, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

The return of the surrealist sock[edit]

[1]. Give me a minute to open an ANI thread. EEng 02:40, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Well, this is disappointing. Given the title I was hoping for someone who had replaced the article on general relativity with a picture of iguanas playing the harmonica. But it's just somebody messing about with articles on surrealist techniques. Oh well. Shock Brigade Harvester Boris (talk) 02:48, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Boris. I had visions of a melting sock hanging from a table. Oh wait after 5 years wear that is what mine lookike :-) Cheers to all. MarnetteD|Talk 02:50, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
That would be a surreal sock. Jeesh. You bunch probably get historic and historical mixed up too. EEng 05:04, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Nonsense. "Historic" is like when the Titantic sank, and "historical" is how I feel when I get my Visa bill. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:38, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Sort of Dali crossed with Jefferson Airplane. Thanks for keeping on top of this guy. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:53, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Well, that's even better. (Brag: I've taken group lessons with Jack Casady twice; in a previous Wiki-life I started his article. And I've have had conversations with three members of the classic Airplane lineup.) Shock Brigade Harvester Boris (talk) 15:28, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Color me impressed: I was a big Airplane (and Hot Tuna) fan back in the day. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:36, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Back in the day? More like back in the Holocene. EEng 00:04, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
I'll have you know we're still in the Holocene, young man. Shock Brigade Harvester Boris (talk) 00:16, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Does anyone remember the "concept" artist a few years ago who added hundreds of great photos of beaches and other scenic spots, and every one had his buttocks somewhere in the image? He was pretty tenacious. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:10, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
He was pretty butt-hurt when he got banned. EEng 05:22, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

"best known for" IP[edit]

I could be wrong, but could Special:Contributions/46.208.236.155 be the "best known for" IP? This is a change also made by the "best known for" IP in May 2017; this of course removes the IP's least favourite phrase. Pinkbeast (talk) 00:43, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

I think that if you disagree with my edits, you should try talking to me about them instead of taking to someone else about me to make wild accusations. That's an amazingly unpleasant route to take and a huge failure to assume good faith. 46.208.236.155 (talk) 07:42, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Curious that you knew to look and who I was talking about, ain't it? Pinkbeast (talk) 00:06, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
@Pinkbeast: Sorry not to respond earlier -- I'm busy in RL. I just wanted to point out that I'm not an admin ("Never have been, never will be."TM) so there's nothing I can directly do about this IP. I would contact @Kuru:, who seems to have some expertise in this LTA's behavior. Best, Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:39, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I fear I have a bit set that says you are an admin. I'll try and forget that. Pinkbeast (talk) 00:44, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
No problem. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:45, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Avenue reverts[edit]

Per WP:CAP, obvious details aren’t needed in captions; it is obvious for example in the image on the seventh avenue article that the image is of seventh avenue. IWI (chat) 08:46, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

I disagree. Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:46, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Please see your talk page, and, per WP:BRD, do not restore the disputed edits until you have a consensus to do so. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:46, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
