Culture of the Cook Islands[edit]

Once we know what's needed, I can add the citations, as long as you're patient with me -- I'm traveling again, through Sunday night. Lovely spring in this part of the world. How about in your neck of the woods? --Rosiestep (talk) 14:08, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes it did. So beautiful. Need time to concentrate on Althorp, maybe by next weekend. I'm thinking that the art could use it's own article. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:22, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
I know... the library could/should have it's own article... plus the art... I think the Diana Memorial, too. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:30, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
So far, just oogling the pictures and reading captions. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:32, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Art collection at Althorp, Althorp library, Diana memorial at Althorp. --Rosiestep (talk) 14:39, 11 April 2014 (UTC)


He's one of the best, yes - I always like seeing his contributions.

I haven't looked much at those templates - I may do some talk-page tagging tonight, though. I started a new job a couple of weeks ago and it's been taking up a lot of my energy during the week, truth be told. And with the weather turning I'm trying to spend more time away from the computer of a weekend. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 23:35, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

Rockie Charles[edit]

Hi, Blofeld. Could you check over User:Rhondamerrick/sandbox and give me a second opinion as to whether he's notable. Normally I'd say "yeah, no problems", move it to mainspace and give it a DYK ... but this is my other half's uncle, so I want an experienced editor to have a look before everyone screams "COI! COI! COI" FWIW, she has been rather amazed at the stuff I've dug out of sources this evening, giving her a whole new picture on "Uncle Charles". Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:18, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

@Ritchie333: Looks perfectly fine yup.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:20, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

File:Golden Age of Hollywood.png[edit]

Over on Commons you asked me to let you know if I noticed that one of the source files for your commons:File:Golden Age of Hollywood.png collage was deleted. Well it looks like commons:File:Greta Garbo in Meyers Blitz-Lexikon 1932.jpg (upper left corner) was deleted in January as a copyright violation, so the collage is once again a potential copyright violation. —RP88 (talk) 02:52, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, will look shortly.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:51, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 16[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Tephrosia apollinea, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Cortex (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

The Banner[edit]

Could you please provide your comment on the talk page of User:HJ Mitchell? Thank you. Dmatteng (talk) 06:52, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Richard Burton[edit]

Yes, but isn't that always the case? I don't believe Cary Grant ever won for anything he did, either, for instance. Nor Peter O'Toole. At least Niven was a damn good actor. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 12:56, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Eh, I don't really pay much attention to any of the awards, Oscars or otherwise. I don't always feel they reflect my tastes. Or really the public's tastes, when you come right down to it. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 16:23, 17 April 2014 (UTC)


Hello, you can help improve the paragraph on the Shroud of Turin of this article, thank you: Real Santuario del Cristo de La Laguna.-- (talk) 13:55, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:KornélSámuel.jpg[edit]

<remove bot spiel> Hi, in trying to clean a backlog of images without {{information}} I noted that File:KornélSámuel.jpg didn't appear to have a photo source listed. Do you have any recollection of where it came from, such as a gallery catalouge or something? Sfan00 IMG (talk) 09:27, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

@Sfan00 IMG: Yeah it came from the fine arts of Hungary website I think. Click the orange box "Muvei" at [1] I'm not sure though it can qualify as a free image as the photograph itself is obviously not 1909.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:31, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

PD-art? Sfan00 IMG (talk) 12:00, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
That should be OK I think yup, feel free to change it.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:13, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

List of colleges and universities in Massachusetts[edit]

Right now, 114/126 of the links on the article are dead and I am focusing on fixing them right now in hopes of getting it to Featured List status. In light of the school sites sometimes moving the pages around, I was wondering if it would be acceptable to use government sources instead on the school pages, as I don't see them being moved or going dead anytime soon. Would that be acceptable, or should I go ahead and format the same way as the other featured articles? Thanks! Kevin Rutherford (talk) 00:05, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Good luck with that!♦ Dr. Blofeld 07:26, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
