Reminder[edit]

I am waiting for your comments on the flc. Thank you.—Prashant 04:20, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for showing up at the flc page. But I am hurt because of this "Weak support Looks in good shape, I made some copyedits. I wish the nominator had not prompted me to review this again just 3 days after notifying me though". I did not intend to stalk. You had said you would post the other day, which you didn't. That's why I had to post again. I thought you forgot about my flc. Sorry for that, you should have said that to me and not at the flc page. Anyway, this will fail as your comment is a direct hint for the delegate.—Prashant 16:04, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
No, I doubt he'll fail it, it's not obvious direct canvassing, just irritating to be prodded just three days after alerting me to a nom. If you'd rather I'd not commented then you shouldn't have asked me.♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:11, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Well sorry for that. If you could tweak your comments, then It might be better. Also, the list is definitely a worthy candidate, but you gave a weak support. I didn't understand.—Prashant 16:30, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I wasn't convinced the prose was brilliant, that's why. I've still supported, be grateful.♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:35, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, thanks anyway. I hope the further improvement can change your mind to give a full support. Face-smile.svg.—Prashant 02:52, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Hey, not really, but I do expect to keep the article in high standard because it was our first achievement for a bio about an actor. I still do like her and don't think her career died as much as she deliberately ended it. She has other commitments now like the IPL and stuff. Haven't yet seen Queen. ShahidTalk2me 12:51, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

@Shshshsh: I agree with you. PZ has done some of the best performances in the previous decade. Some of her films are historical such as Dil Se, Veer-Zaara, Kal Ho Na Ho and Dil Chahta Hai. My other favorite performances of her are Kya Kehna and Dil Hai Tumhaara, where she stole the show. Plus, she is a fearless, outspoken and honest.—Prashant 14:23, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Breakthrough role[edit]

Apparently SNUGGUMS forgot to notify you about the prod of Breakthrough role, so I am doing it. My best, Cavarrone 16:35, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. He's been a bit of a cazzo of late eh?♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:38, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Emereo[edit]

Hi Dr. B., just a heads-up that you should avoid using stuff from Emereo Publishing. You've recently cited a book by them where this appears and even the font and layout looks familiar. I removed it - didn't even bother checking the article history because somewhere down the line, even if not from the specific article, it'll come from WP. RSN had a thread about it recently, although I didn't see that until I'd already got rid of maybe 40 refs across as many articles. - Sitush (talk) 22:53, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, wasn't aware about Emereo, I knew of Mobile Reference though. I didn't actually notice the refs, and if I'd scrolled back a few pages the infobox would have been a dead give away!♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:25, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll leave you to deal with the latest blow-up, as you have been doing. I'm not in the mood right now to discuss with "fragile" people (not the best choice of word, perhaps, but can't think of another at the moment) and will likely unintentionally piss them off. - Sitush (talk) 18:58, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Wikipedia's a tough place, things don't always go our way!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:02, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
But people are people and react unpredictably. See User_talk:Sitush#Playtime_Is_Over_.28mixtape.29_edits. - Sitush (talk) 19:26, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Emereo publishing really got those who copies from en.wiki. once it was a reliable source, now it is not. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 02:08, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Montanabw disagrees and thinks it's reliable.♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:47, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Bollywood actresses[edit]

Nice. Deepika looks like she could be her own mother in the younger photo LOL.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:14, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

With bindi in place, she resembles a typical Kannada girl. Karisma Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty and Rekha have had amazing transformations, no? Vensatry (ping) 08:09, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, the "Hollywoodization/Bollywoodization" of stars doesn't always mean an improvement though, look at Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zellweger for instance! Angelina Jolie used to be hot, now looks like a skeleton with a shiny plastic face! Even Eva Longoria has been looking strange and plastic of late, and I used to think of her as one of the more laidback, natural Hollywood actresses! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:51, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Ha, that's true. Angelina Jolie's transformation can be attributed to the breast augmentation. Vensatry (ping) 16:52, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome[edit]

For this. I'm pleasantly surprised that that article made people so happy. But we did need it. Daniel Case (talk) 22:22, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

help with links[edit]

hi, i try to add language version to Yümai (zh: 玉麦乡 (隆子县)) and Sangngagqoiling zh:三安曲林乡), but there is some error and i have no idea. could you help please. thanks Andelicek.andy (talk) 06:03, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

@Andelicek.andy: Do you mean inter wiki links or adding the Chinese/Pinyin after the names?♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:24, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

I mean - when you open english wiki with Yümai, on left pannel you see language versions only with Bahasa and some Arabic languages, but both pages (Yümai , Sangngagqoiling) does exists also in chinese languages (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%8E%89%E9%BA%A6%E4%B9%A1_(%E9%9A%86%E5%AD%90%E5%8E%BF), (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E4%B8%89%E5%AE%89%E6%9B%B2%E6%9E%97%E4%B9%A1). When i try "Edit links" it says these two pages /en Yumai and zh Yumai/ are already connected. but when you open chinese Yumai, there is NO another language version..... (for Sangngagqoiling same). try "Edit links" on Yumai and put "zh" and "玉麦乡 (隆子县)" and you will see. thanks. thanks for barn star....even i dont know what "barn" means :D :D it takes ages to find correct original names for villages :D Andelicek.andy (talk) 04:58, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Sam problem with Gurum (zh: 古荣乡 (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%8F%A4%E8%8D%A3%E4%B9%A1). I'm not good in inter wiki links system. Thanks for help.

@Charles Matthews:, can you take a look at this? I just tried to add the Chinese interlink and it wouldn't work. That's the downside to Wikidata :-(♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:13, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. I continue completing the list. Should I continue list errors here or to Charles Matthews?
one more: Nyêmo Town should go to zh: zh:尼木乡 (尼木县) (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%B0%BC%E6%9C%A8%E4%B9%A1_(%E5%B0%BC%E6%9C%A8%E5%8E%BF)), but it goes to zh: zh:塔荣镇 (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A1%94%E8%8D%A3%E9%95%87), which is actually Tarrong. If try on Tarrong add zh:塔荣镇 (https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%A1%94%E8%8D%A3%E9%95%87), cannoct connect, because page already links uncorrectly with Nyêmo Town. Thanks.

You'd be better off asking Charles on his talk page to look into this, or ask him to ask somebody on wikidata to sort out all of the Tibetan township Chinese wiki interlinks. For some reason I can't edit it either.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:47, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

ok, btw. better do not say the truth? ok....remember... Andelicek.andy (talk) 13:54, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
A lot of people know the truth, but when you bring up politics and ethnic conflict on wikipedia people will usually assume you're WP:POV pusher and here to trash the PRC. Such people usually get blocked, so I hope you leave your personal grievances out of wiki and just help with these lists!♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:57, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

I created most of the village stubs years ago but they're a mess. I'd probably vote to delete most of them stubs and begin working through the township/town lists with a population/area source.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:59, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

numbers usually get from official chinese pages, but its in chinese language only,anyway, most trust able source. or we call local people. I try to stay neutral, meanwhile people die.... I dont like EN wiki much. too many people contribute. my own language TB part is in my direction :D i happy to help with anythin about Tibet, these days I will finish townships list.if anything else, let me now. i will keep distance from articles :D Andelicek.andy (talk) 08:45, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Could you please do something with complains on List of township-level divisions of Qinghai. Im not good with bureaucracy. My source is this: http://www.stats.gov.cn/tjsj/tjbz/tjyqhdmhcxhfdm/2013/63.html (gov page) Thanks. Andelicek.andy (talk) 09:19, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

@Lord Cornwallis: Yes, it needs a tremendous amount of work, especially Mexico!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:40, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll try to get round to it, but I've got a bit of a backlog of other articles to do at the moment. Lord Cornwallis (talk) 19:29, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Meryl Streep[edit]

Hi Doc. There have been some recent edits in the article and, whenever you have the time, I would appreciate it if you checked them over. I am on vacation so my editing time is not much but I will check in from time to time. I am also concerned about some new section titles, such as "Unsuccessful comedies; The Bridges of Madison County" which lumps together the "unsuccessful" comedies and the drama with a semicolon and may be confusing. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 12:50, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

@Dr.K.: It should be OK, Krimuk is a very good friend of mine and we've agreed to work on promoting it. We've promoted FAs before. The 90s might be a potentially difficult area though as some films were a success, others were panned.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:55, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

It's still a very rough draft. I'm sure I'll do a better job when I have more time at hand. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 03:09, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Carl Nielsen[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article Carl Nielsen you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days.

Moldovan architects[edit]

The Intertranswiki listing of Moldovan architects is probably a result of a mistranslation from the Russian Moldavia which is not the same as Moldova. I do not think Sergei Ginger can be called Moldovan, even if he was born in Chisinau, as Moldova only gained its independence in 1991 and he died in 1937. The Russian article lists him as having first the citizenship of the Russian Empire and then USSR. I think there will be similar problems with the other names in the list which appears to be based on ru:Категория:Архитекторы Молдавии. See also the explanations under Rosalia Spirer on my talk page. I have provisionally added a warning on Intertranswiki.--Ipigott (talk) 07:02, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Moldavian Soviet then Ipigott?. All I know is the Russian equivalent category of Category:Moldovan architects listed all of these in it. I guess we could create Category:Moldavian Soviet architects and feed into both Moldova and Russia if this is a touchy area?♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:38, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

It's a translation problem. The Russians also have words for Moldavian and Moldovan but Google translated Moldavian as Moldovan. I'm working on the problem at WikiProject Moldova. Let's wait a day or two for responses.--Ipigott (talk) 13:43, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm on good terms with Dahn and Biruitorul from the old days on here. They'd be most welcome to join and help organize Moldova topics for WP:Intertranswiki stub drive. I acknowledge that Romanian wiki isn't material generally is poor, but the idea is to identify missing topics and start them, and if the content is unsourced to look externally and support it. My intention here was really Moldovan people, perhaps journalists or whatever at a later date would be a good one to target. Moldovan biography strikes me as poorly covered on here.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:48, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I think we can continue to use the Moldovan categories. See my talk page.--Ipigott (talk) 14:25, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of Carl Nielsen[edit]

The article Carl Nielsen you nominated as a good article has passed Symbol support vote.svg; see Talk:Carl Nielsen for comments about the article. Well done! If the article has not already been on the main page as an "In the news" or "Did you know" item, you can nominate it to appear in Did you know.

Thanks for all you help on this. Glad we made it in time. Can you take care of scheduling the DYK?--
Sure I'll do it now, the 9th of June right?♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:25, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Graham Chapman[edit]

I'm making some headway on this article now; hopefully it'll be ready for GA after another session or two - mainly just sorting all the stuff I've tagged [citation needed] and copyediting from top to bottom. Anyway, you know about non-free images, and this article could really do with a few - File:Graham Chapman Colonel.jpg is an obvious one, so is File:Chapman as Brian.jpg there's also File:John Clesse and Graham Chapman.jpg but that looks like a copyvio that nobody's noticed. I don't suppose you could be a dear and sort out some FUR for his article if you've got a mo? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:37, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Wow that's great stuff Ritchie, I didn't realise anybody responded to my note about it aside from Cassianto saying that he didn't like Monty Python. We hope might be better to take care of that than myself though.♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:40, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

OK-the Clease & Chapman file is at FFD--no way the uploader has the copyright to it. A couple of questions because we all know how excited some people get when a non-free file is used in more than 1 article. Both of the remaining ones are currently in articles; the Colonel one is now used in 4, when you count the Chapman article. Any chance of reducing the number of times this one has been used so all those who worry about this sort of thing might sleep soundly? :-) We hope (talk) 17:36, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Well I've done the FUR for The Colonel and just done it for Chapman's own article. In both cases, sources and biographies assume you already know what the Colonel looks like, which is (IMHO) a great excuse for a FUR. I've nuked the other two. We need to stop this - it's silly! Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:24, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Agree with you-when you think about it, technically we have less non-free image content by re-using non-free files which are already uploaded than if someone has to upload a new non-free file for each article. A while back, we lost a non-free photo because it was termed "not necessary". The action was an SD on a file that had been here some years and one article it was used in had just gone to GAN; the admin is still kicking around here somewhere. :-/ We hope (talk) 20:09, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

So sad, we've lost B.B, one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century and one of the most influential guitars ever.. Ask any good guitarist and he'll tell you that the big man is a massive influence in the tone and delivery of their blues soloing. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:12, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

The thrill is really gone. :-/ We hope (talk) 17:36, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Definitely, what a loss. Only really good source I have is The Guitar Handbook which proclaims him as a vitally important influence on guitarists everywhere. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 19:39, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
When I play the blues and solo, he's the guy I most try to emulate, Stevie Ray close behind too of course, but BB for blues to me is as Joe Pass is to jazz and Jimi Hendrix is to rock, speaking as a guitarist. And one of those very rare people who when you watched you knew he was one of those living legends people in future centuries will be saying they wished they'd been alive at the time to see him.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:50, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
And those of us who could have but never did will regret it for a long time. Was still a teen when I was able to go to a 50s Rock and Roll show featuring Chuck Berry; the memory of that is great! We hope (talk) 20:13, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm sure, I bet that was cool!♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:16, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Article suggestion?[edit]

Hi Dr. Blofeld, I just approved Mónica Villa through AFC and started cleaning it up. She's definitely notable but the article is a bit of a mess. All the best references are in further reading rather than references, and the references that do exist often don't verify the text. I know you have worked on Argentine cinema before so thought it might be of interest to you or someone you know? Calliopejen1 (talk) 18:03, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

SusunW might be interested in looking at that. I do intend doing some more stubbing work in the near future though on Argentine films.♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:26, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do with it. May take me a few days. SusunW (talk) 18:28, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I have read through a great majority of the sources and concur that she is notable AND that the article is a mess. I am going to copy it into my sandbox and try to rework it. Most of the sourcing does not tie to what is written in the body at all, so I may have to lose quite a bit of it. A lot of the sources are circular, either back to a Wiki or back to her, thus are unusable. SusunW (talk) 20:51, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
If I came across that article admittedly I'd nuke it to a stub and rebuild it. You could restart it in your sandbox SusunW using some of the material stage by stage and exclude the crap, that would probably be easiest (and cleanest).♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:55, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Exactly my thoughts. I tried to work through just one section and cannot even get one section to tie to sources. So, am in the process of gutting it now. SusunW (talk) 20:58, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Are you interested in adopting an unfinished article?[edit]

Hello Dr. Blofeld, it's been a while since I've edited actively, but a few of my partially unfinished articles have been bothering me a lot recently. I've got three major articles that really bother me because I could publish them now if I wanted to, but I don't because they're incomplete. I'll have to work on User:Ryan Vesey/Jassini since it requires access to a book I own. Further, I can't ask anyone to help with User:Ryan Vesey/Temp until I finish the table of mine fatalities. The one that I'd be interested on help with is User:Ryan Vesey/Xerotine siccative. I left some notes on WikiProject talk pages, but I've worked with you in the past and know that you have a broad range of interests, so I thought that I'd drop by and see if you'd be interested in taking the project up. I'm preparing for graduation and will be traveling for a few days afterwards, but if you're interested in working on it, I'll be able to start making improvements to the page again next week. Ryan Vesey 20:41, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ryan, not seen you around for a while. Nice to see you. Jassini might be infitting with WP:Intertranswiki, we could do 10 Tanzanian towns next week, good job.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:45, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

That's my favourite new word BTW, I'd love to speak Italian fluently! ♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:36, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Nielsen[edit]

At the moment there are no TFA requests for 9 June, but Chris schedules quite far in advance – he's up to 4 June already. I see the Nielsen FAC lasting for at least a couple more weeks, if we're lucky, and Chris will we well beyond the date by then. You could, however, put him in the picture and ask him if he'd be prepared to put in a holding nom for 9 June – maybe one of my non-date-related FAs – which can then be painlessly dumped if Nielsen comes through in time. There may be problems with dumping, otherwise. Brianboulton (talk) 22:50, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Brianboulton but I have a feeling that Nielsen won't make it anyway, mainly because of the reliance on web sources and lack of coverage of his songs. I'd thought it in good overall shape though. But we can let it run a bit and see if anything better comes of it and keep that date in mind should a miracle happen!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:15, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I would follow Brian's suggestion. Better safe than sorry, and it would not cause a problem if CN is not promoted. --Mirokado (talk) 12:49, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I think there's nothing wrong in improving as much as we can, - TFA or not. To schedule something for the 9th that can easily also appear later is a god idea. How about "On this day", in case TFA doesn't work? Never worked that area, have no idea how far in advance they plan and what the criteria are. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:02, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
You were the primary reason I decided to go for FA, the TFA on Nielsen Gerda, I was going to settle for a mere DYK :-). I'm rather dubious this is going to pass, when I'm researching on article personally I prefer to use books to form the bulk of the research, not vice versa, but as Ipigott said, a lot of the decent material is online. Still, you never know what can happen in the time being, sometimes people can get together and really help something, other times they're against it. It would be very nice to have it as TFA on the 150th anniversary.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:07, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm trying to work at the Royal Museum at present. You may want to switch the lead photo to one of these. At the page bottom is the photographer's information-Lindstrøm, Georg fotograf 1866-1923. Lindstrom died in 1923, so death +70 would work here.We hope (talk) 19:50, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks WH. @Ipigott: which one do you want? I think a crop of the third one would look best.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:56, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
This looks like the lead photo but rotated; the RM has no information about who took the photo or when. We hope (talk) 19:58, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Looks even more like Kevin Keegan in that one!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:59, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I must say I'm not thrilled with any of these although they seem to be formally acceptable. There are also a number of photographs at the Odense Museum. The one of Nielsen playing the piano here looks quite appealing. Perhaps we could try to find out more about the origin of the image (photographer, date, etc.). I could try to make some enquiries if anyone is interested.--Ipigott (talk) 20:16, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Carl Nielsen photographs[edit]

I have found a good selection of photographs of Nielsen, with details of photographers and dates, at the Odense Museum. We hope may like to express an opinion on their suitability for the Carl Nielsen article.--Ipigott (talk) 11:20, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I'd be grateful WH if you could upload the images which are useable and we can pick!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:34, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Doc, these are CC non-commercial-take a look at the CC license at the bottom of the page. There's the dollar sign with a slash through it. :/ But there are quite a few photos at the Royal Library-link for their Carl Nielsen photos. The ones we can use will be listed like this group of 4 of Nielsen. We need to see that the Kunstner (artist) is shown at the bottom of the page and that there's some birth and death information about the person who took the photo. For the 4 photos at the link, Gerog Lindstrom took all 4 and he died in 1923. Knowing this and being able to link to this page proves that for the death +70 years licensing. Some of the Royal Library's Nielsen pages have more than 1 Kunstner identified for the page--just make sure that any photo(s) you select from a page have proof of an identity and birth/death information. There are many photos there where there's no birth/death information on the photographer. I'll be glad to have you run them by me if you just give me a link to the page it's on there since this is where the information re: whether we can use it or not is. We hope (talk) 13:51, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Unfortunately I do not think the quality of the four images from the KB is good enough for the article. I think we should look for something substantially better. Is it not possible to use CC non-commercial (CC BY-ND) images for FA by loading them up on Wikipedia rather than on Commons? After all, we are not interested in having them used commercially. I also wonder whether the CC non-commercial status of the Odense museum images is correct. I know many Danish sites try to overprotect their images with copyright restrictions even if they are more than 50, 70 or 100 years old (these are over 100 years old) and comply with Creative Commons rules. See for example Commons Copyright Rules. Do you or We hope know anyone who could assist with this. It seems ridiculous that countless Wikipedia articles use images loaded up on Commons on the basis of age, etc., and we cannot find anything suitable for someone who died in 1931 (i.e. 84 years ago). Perhaps Elekhh can provide some advice on this?--Ipigott (talk) 15:07, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I don't think much of their quality either, but the issues are: we need to have a verifiable photographer who has died 70 years or more before 2015 in order to use the death+70 license and that while we don't use content for commercial purposes, we need to have photos which are totally in the public domain--no questions asked--due to the WMF rule about downstream use. Users other than WP who copy our PD photos are supposed to be able to use them for any purpose they like--including commercially. We hope (talk) 15:16, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
The photographers are mentioned for the Odense Museum images. It should be fairly easy to check when they died.--Ipigott (talk) 15:20, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Then why not start researching the names? We hope (talk) 15:22, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
Simply because there has been little interest in my suggestions and I didn't want to tread on your feet, We hope. Furthermore, I feel extremely inexperienced in this area as I have never before been involved in FAC. The list of requirements on the images in the article came as a complete surprise. I wish I had been warned earlier. I know a great deal about Creative Commons as I helped to initiate its use in the European Union through projects like Europeana and the national libraries but I realize it is one thing to try to provide wider access to resources and quite another to overcome the requirements on EN Wikipedia! (I say that with my tongue in my cheek and I'll see what I can do with the photographers.) But I would once again like to hear Elekhh's views on all this.--Ipigott (talk) 17:35, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
It's all very well saying "that's a nice image", but we need to be practical. Is it uploadable freely? So as less attractive some of those images WH identified might be, it looks as if one of them will have to do.♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:37, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
OK, here we go. This image was taken in 1901 by Albert Christian Ludvig Max Schou, 1878-1944. See da:Albert Schou . (So he died 71 years ago and the image is now in the public domain.) Other works by him are already on Commons, e.g. File:Ludvig Mylius-Erichsen by Albert Schou jr. 01.jpg. I think this particular image is very good and could be the lead image. Any comments? Should I go further?--Ipigott (talk) 17:58, 19 May 2015 (UTC) See also "Schou, Max (1878-1944) fotograf" by searching on Europeana. Unfortunately I cannot insert the website as it uses square brackets. --Ipigott (talk) 18:20, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
We hope That one's OK? ♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:22, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Just be sure to include this link as it identifies the photographer and the year it was taken "Portræt af Carl Nielsen, 1907. Fotograf: Albert Schou juniors efterfølger", and a link to verify that Schou died in 1944. We hope (talk) 18:38, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Great! That's a relief.--Ipigott (talk) 19:00, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for loading up the image and adding it to the article. From the comments in the review, it seems to need a US PD tag on Commons. Do you know what is needed and how to add the tag or do you want me to make enquiries? How about the other comments on the images?--Ipigott (talk) 06:18, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

I was surprised to see that Smerus deleted all the Google links from the book references. I know how keen you have been in the past to have these links included, especially in cases where Google provides access to the book itself. I have looked at the rules at WP:ELYES and I see that WP:ELNO does indeed clearly state that links to search engines should be avoided. In my opinion this is not in the interests of the user but for now we'll have to go along with it. Maybe the matter should be raised for further discussion?--Ipigott (talk) 06:32, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

I have now added PD-1923 to the image licence on Commons. Hope this is correct. I'll now add it to the other images in the article where required.--Ipigott (talk) 06:45, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

There's a photo of Carl Nielsen and family from 1904 at the Odensee Museum site which can be used with the Danish PD 50 license {{PD-Denmark50}}. top photo at extreme right. photo link Copy from page "Familien Carl Nielsen fotograferet i dagligstuen i hjemmet på Toldbodvej, København, 1904. Fotograf: Viggo de Neergaard." Bing translate "Carl Nielsen family photographed in the living room in the home at Toldbodvej, Copenhagen, 1904. Photographer: Viggo de Neergaard." de Neergaard died in 1915 Allerede i foråret 1915 dør Viggo de Neergaard og Viggo de Neergaard died in the spring of 1915. This can go with the Danish PD-50 because de Neergaard wasn't a professional photographer. This is a "snapshot" and we're lucky in that we know who took the photo, etc. We hope (talk) 17:32, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
@We hope: I think that it would indeed be worthwhile including this photograph as it shows Nielsen together with his wife and three legitimate children. It could be substituted for the current photo of Anne Marie (which I believe you said is not PD) in the Marriage and children section. I see that if I click on the image, a much clearer enlarged version is displayed but I don't know how to save it. Can you or Dr. Blofeld help out? The photo may need a little trimming for it to be up to standard.--Ipigott (talk) 09:33, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Hello Dr. Blofeld. I am Lucky102. I decided to help you with the wikiproject you created about translating pages from other wikis into English. I admire this and I have decided to help contribute to the project. I am very excited and hope that I may be of use to the project. I speak English as well as Irish. I will have to use Google Translate for any other page, however as you probably know Google Translate does not always make sense so that is why I am currently refraining. Let me know if I am able to help you in any way. Regards Lucky102 (talk) 13:14, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Welcome aboard! Well, google translate is far from perfect, but usually you can extract some things which make sense from a good percentage of the languages. Anything translated though does have to sourced reliably though. I'll put your name down on Wikipedia:WikiProject Intertranswiki page. You're welcome to help start any of the articles red linked!♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:45, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for the welcoming. I just created a page about a village and municipality in the Czech Republic called Jeřmanice. Maybe we could have municipalities in Liberec District to help improve geography in the Czech Republic. Lucky102 (talk) 13:49, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes we could do that. Can you try to ensure that all the translated/started articles are sourced though? You can use google book ref maker [1]. There are a few not being transwikied and just missing, you can help with 1620s earthquakes, Vanuatu and Gloucestershire country houses.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:49, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

It never ends, does it?[edit]

Why do I keep opening cans of worms? I started Liberation Society because I began Thomas Barnes (MP) and there was a redlink. I'd begun the Barnes article because of a redlink also but soon hit another redlinked MP in the Society article, so came up with Lawrence Heyworth (MP). That has now spawned a whole series of redlinks which, yet again, are organisations referred to in various existing articles, some of them ones that I can remember from when I studied history at university 30-odd years ago. Who needs more or less orphaned articles about obscure, local interest schools, minor athletes and comic-book characters when we've got all these national people and organisations as redlinks? - Sitush (talk) 12:04, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it's incredible how much you find missing every time you create an article. I don't know about you but usually every article I start turns up multiple red links, often entirely red links. That's why I think stub building is so important! And it's not as if this is only on non anglo countries, as you say even a notable MP can spawn a ton of red links. For sure we've only identified a very small percentage of potential articles we could write about, which is why it's irritating when some people think we're nearing completion or don't bother to build content.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:18, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Second opinion needed[edit]

Hi Blofeld! I am a wee bit concerned about the recent IP editing on Denice D. Lewis but am not sure whether I should just let it pass. To be honest, she's probably most famous for having dated the same men as Diana and Fergie. Her current notability appears very borderline, in the absence of available 1980s/90s sources about her. Anyway - I'm not sure whether there is actual BLP violation going on with the IP's bigging-her-up edits or if the edits are JUST borderline/barely acceptable. What do you think? I don't want to get into an argument over this unless I'm pretty sure my info is accurate, so I thought I'd ask another editor whose opinions/views I trust. Thanks so much! Mabalu (talk) 01:01, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Certainly reads like a puff piece and like it would be non notable. Imdb must be removed as a source for a start and most of the other sourcing is dodgy. But "the highest paid celebrity catwalk model in Europe during the 1980's and 1990's" if that is actually true and this cover, not to mention several of her roles in films and music videos would lead me to believe she's notable. Variety says she "slept her way to the top" and New York Magazine says "Seems to have slept with everyone", a celebrity serial shagger, that's why she's notable haha. But the puffery needs dialing down and some strong sourcing introduced. Doesn't help with the amateurish photo either.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:05, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

I've cleaned it up a bit and improved the sourcing anyway. The magazine ones are OK in this context as they do verify the covers photographically.♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:54, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Please delete it Doctor as I am very depressed and I dont know what to say.—Prashant 16:37, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Aren't we being a little neurotic here Prashant? Yes, he should have asked the article creators first, but Frank Boy's gesture to try make it a featured topic is a positive one.♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:07, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes, It is. But, the problem was other related articles. For her to pass FT, it is neccessary to include In My City, Exotic, Miss World 2000 at least. Only then it can pass. Since In My City is already a GA and I will soon start work on Exotic and Miss 2000, which I don't know how to do! If these were alredy GAs and then he would have nominated, I would have been Happy that he nominated. But, he was not fully aware of her other related articles, so its okay. —Prashant 12:13, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Ask Frank Boy to kindly withdraw it then until the others are promoted. At a later date we can nom together then.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:32, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Yeah! It was already removed. Thank god! Do you know anything about Miss World 2000 because I don't, but I can try. Phew!—Prashant 13:00, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

16 Vayathinile[edit]

My next GAN, a 1977 cult film starring Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and Sridevi. Please do let me know if you are willing to conduct a GA review on it. Thank you. Thamizhan1994 (Appo Pesu) 08:02, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Madhuri Dixit filmography[edit]

Hi Doctor! Would you like to review the Bollywood list nominated for featured list candidates. Oh BTW I wasn't aware of Chopra's sub-articles that's why I nominated, thinking that it might be right. Anyways, something that's been discussed. -- FrankBoy CHITCHAT 12:30, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes, if you can review Carl Nielsen at FAC!♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:33, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Took my time to review the nomination. It'd be kind of you if you do the same. :) -- FrankBoy CHITCHAT 17:55, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Yes, I will take a look at it tomorrow if that's OK.♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:14, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

A TFL?[edit]

Hi Blofeld, once again! June 5 (Friday, a day on which a featured list features on the main page) marks the release of Dil Dhadakne Do. And since Priyanka Chopra is one of the actors starring in it, I think her filmography can be submitted on WP:TFLS. You, being one of the nominators of it, submit the list there. I would have done it myself, but you know what happened last time. -- FrankBoy CHITCHAT 20:00, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
