WikiProject Cities Comment[edit]

Hello Boneyard: WikiProject Cities is a separate WikiProject from WikiProject Japan, and is thus not redundant in Shingō, Aomori. Per such examples as Talk:Shanghai, Talk:Paris, Talk:Mumbai, etc., Wikiproject Cities co-exists with the local WikiProject, even if the WikiProject includes a "municipalities" or similar task force. --MChew (talk) 07:11, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, but you used a "WP:Japan" assessment banner. A second one. Take a second look here. - Boneyard90 (talk) 14:00, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Hokkaido wolf‎[edit]

A subspecies cannot be a subspecies of another subspecies. Makes no logical sense, and is unsourced. FunkMonk (talk) 07:08, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Actually I was about to revert precisely because it is sourced (Kishida 1931). Not sure what you mean.
Genus= Canis
Species= lupus
Subspecies= hattai
Actually, I think I see the problem. The "Subspecies" in the infobox leads to Honshu wolf. That looks like the factual inaccuracy. - Boneyard90 (talk) 07:13, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes, which is what I removed. The subspecies name is already listed under "Trinomial name", the subspecies field only belongs in species level articles. FunkMonk (talk) 07:20, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I see. You are correct. I should have looked into it further. My apologies. - Boneyard90 (talk) 13:49, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Ugly ownership screaming at Hanged, Drawn and Quartered[edit]

Unfortunately, there is a cabal at Hanged, Drawn and Quartered who refuses inclusion of the following template there: Template:Capital Punishment I think the template is very illumanitave, and should be de rigeur at execution pages. What do you think?Arildnordby (talk) 10:41, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Parrot of Doom is evidently a hysterical Owner, time to take the whole charade to ANI??[edit]

Look how he edit summarizes now: "it's still an ugly template which has no place here." This is for a bottom line green edit.

He clearly has severe problems in understanding he doesn't own the article.. Arildnordby (talk) 19:35, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Arildnordby, please be aware that an ANI posting would likely have a boomerang effect: while Parrot has not been polite, nor have you, and his frustration with your edit-warring is understandable. I would advise that to present your argument once without personalizing the issue or attacking others as "hysterical" or cabalists, and then allow consensus to develop, even if it ends up not agreeing with you. At this point, you're not helping your case. Nikkimaria (talk) 20:44, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
An editor who can't come up with other comments than private emotional sentiments like "huge", "ungainly", "ugly", is quite rightly to be placed in ownership mode.Arildnordby (talk) 21:11, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. One location, one debate, no name-calling. We can't call people cabal, or Commie (which is what I like to call people at work), or crazy loon (which got a different editor banned), or anything. Keep it on the level. Find the best place for the debate, and see it through. - Boneyard90 (talk) 21:34, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

Curb stomp[edit]

Were you able to find incidents of curb stomping prior to American History X? I believe it was that movie that "invented" it, but that word is too strong. I wasn't able to find reports prior, maybe you have some more luck. Valoem talk contrib 20:04, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

I've looked, and I plan on doing some more searching with other terms, but I have not found any published examples before the movie. I also did not find any published source that says the movie invented the term or act. There are many people on the internet that seem convinced that the movie depiction is the first, but no good evidence. The reason I took an interest is because I heard of the act before the movie came out. I heard of it between 1994 and 1996, as part of urban gang culture. So I thought the best neutral, NPOV thing to do would be to delete it from the Lead. There are no sources to back up one side or the other yet, but I was hoping to at least keep the article from perpetuating the idea that the movie invented it, while the writers may have borrowed it from a real-life case. - Boneyard90 (talk) 15:11, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Medical Translation Newsletter
Issue 1, June/July 2014
by CFCF, Doc James

sign up for monthly delivery


Wiki Project Med Foundation logo.svg
TWB.svg

This is the first of a series of newsletters for Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Task Force. Our goal is to make all the medical knowledge on Wikipedia available to the world, in the language of your choice.

note: you will not receive future editions of this newsletter unless you *sign up*; you received this version because you identify as a member of WikiProject Medicine

Spotlight - Simplified article translation


Wikiproject Medicine started translating simplified articles in February 2014. We now have 45 simplified articles ready for translation, of which the first on African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness has been translated into 46 out of ~100 languages. This list does not include the 33 additional articles that are available in both full and simple versions.

Our goal is to eventually translate 1,000 simplified articles. This includes:

We are looking for subject area leads to both create articles and recruit further editors. We need people with basic medical knowledge who are willing to help out. This includes to write, translate and especially integrate medical articles.

What's happening?

CFCF - "IEG beneficiary" and editor of this newsletter.

I've (CFCF) taken on the role of community organizer for this project, and will be working with this until December. The goals and timeline can be found here, and are focused on getting the project on a firm footing and to enable me to work near full-time over the summer, and part-time during the rest of the year. This means I will be available for questions and ideas, and you can best reach me by mail or on my talk page.

Wikimania 2014

For those going to London in a month's time (or those already nearby) there will be at least one event for all medical editors, on Thursday August 7th. See the event page, which also summarizes medicine-related presentations in the main conference. Please pass the word on to your local medical editors.

Integration progress

There has previously been some resistance against translation into certain languages with strong Wikipedia presence, such as Dutch, Polish, and Swedish.
What was found is that thre is hardly any negative opinion about the the project itself; and any such critique has focused on the ways that articles have being integrated. For an article to be usefully translated into a target-Wiki it needs to be properly Wiki-linked, carry proper citations and use the formatting of the chosen target language as well as being properly proof-read. Certain large Wikis such as the Polish and Dutch Wikis have strong traditions of medical content, with their own editorial system, own templates and different ideas about what constitutes a good medical article. For example, there are not MEDRS (Polish,German,Romanian,Persian) guidelines present on other Wikis, and some Wikis have a stronger background of country-specific content.

  • Swedish
    Translation into Swedish has been difficult in part because of the amount of free, high quality sources out there already: patient info, for professionals. The same can be said for English, but has really given us all the more reason to try and create an unbiased and free encyclopedia of medical content. We want Wikipedia to act as an alternative to commercial sources, and preferably a really good one at that.
    Through extensive collaborative work and by respecting links and Sweden specific content the last unintegrated Swedish translation went live in May.
  • Dutch
    Dutch translation carries with it special difficulties, in part due to the premises in which the Dutch Wikipedia is built upon. There is great respect for what previous editors have created, and deleting or replacing old content can be frowned upon. In spite of this there are success stories: Anafylaxie.
  • Polish
    Translation and integration into Polish also comes with its own unique set of challenges. The Polish Wikipedia has long been independent and works very hard to create high quality contentfor Polish audience. Previous translation trouble has lead to use of unique templates with unique formatting, not least among citations. Add to this that the Polish Wikipedia does not allow template redirects and a large body of work is required for each article.
    (This is somewhat alleviated by a commissioned Template bot - to be released). - List of articles for integration
  • Arabic
    The Arabic Wikipedia community has been informed of the efforts to integrate content through both the general talk-page as well as through one of the major Arabic Wikipedia facebook-groups: مجتمع ويكيبيديا العربي, something that has been heralded with great enthusiasm.
Integration guides

Integration is the next step after any translation. Despite this it is by no means trivial, and it comes with its own hardships and challenges. Previously each new integrator has needed to dive into the fray with little help from previous integrations. Therefore we are creating guides for specific Wikis that make integration simple and straightforward, with guides for specific languages, and for integrating on small Wikis.

Instructions on how to integrate an article may be found here [3]

Fujiwara no Nakamaro Rebellion assessment[edit]

Hi! Thanks for the copy-edits and the assessment of Fujiwara no Nakamaro Rebellion. Since you assessed as "Supporting materials: criterion not met", I was wondering how to improve this point. I was looking very hard, but did not find any illustrations of the main subjects (Nakamaro, Koken, Dokyo) anywhere, that could be used with suitable license (i.e. sufficiently old). Seems like they were too controversial to be popular in the arts!? I could put pictures of people who played a minor role in the conflict (Shomu, Kibi no Makibi), but I think that would give them too much prominence and could cause confusion. Personally I am not too fond of infoboxes for battles/rebellions, but if you think that could be useful, I could hack one up. bamse (talk) 21:01, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for writing. Yes, the infobox was primarily what I was thinking of as far as "supporting materials". I also did a quick Google image search and didn't see anything relevant. I know some people don't care for infoboxes, but for a quick reference for when and who was involved, I think they're useful. Other than that, it's a B-class article. If you really think the article can't be improved with an infobox, I'll re-assess it. - Boneyard90 (talk) 14:33, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

NHK Cup (shogi)[edit]

Hi Boneyard90,

I saw that you evaluated NHK Cup (shogi) for WP:JAPAN. Your evaluated the article as not meeting the criterion for referencing and citation. Do you have a specific suggestions on what kinds of improvements should be made so that this is no longer an issue? Thanks in advance. Face-smile.svg - Marchjuly (talk) 01:39, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for writing. I assessed it deficient in citations because there was factual claims made without in-line citations in the first five paragraphs of the History section, in the 1st, 3rd, or 4th paragraphs of the Format section, or the next three sub-sections, most of the items in the Tournament Records, only one in the Broadcasts section, and none in the "Notable happenings" section (which is an odd name for a section header, by the way). When all factual claims have an in-line citation tied to a reliable source, the article will be considered to have met the criteria for References & Citations. Hope this helps. - Boneyard90 (talk) 15:03, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply Boneyard90. I'll respond below, but maybe it would be better to move this to the article's talk page to make it easier for others to follow. What do you think?
Much of that information in the article was translated from it's corresponding Japanese Wikipedia page. There are not many third party sources regarding shogi the tournament in English; there's some user-generated stuff, i.e., blogs and wikis, but many of those would not satisfy WP:RSnot a lot of info and a lot of it is not correct. I have been looking through various Japanese sources to see which are OK for use, and have used what I felt I could. Most of the tournament record facts could be cited using this. Just not sure if a citation needs to be added for each line or just one for the entire section as a whole. The same page as well as the tournament's NHK page could also be used for the format section. These are primary sources, and have already been cited for certain things in the article so I am just searching for some different ones as support. The "Notable happenings" was just my attempt at translating the word エピソード. I felt that most literal translation "Episodes" seemed like it would might lead readers to think of "TV Episodes". I also considered "Anecdotes", but the nuance seemed a bit different. Maybe simply "Notable" would have been a better choice. If you have any other suggestions or comments please post them on Talk:NHK Cup (shogi) or feel free to add them directly to the article. Also, please do not hesitate in adding {{citation needed}} templates to the article wherever you deem necessary. I know you don't need my permission to do so and I'm not trying to give it to you; Those templates would not only be helpful to me, but also to other editors who might want to take a crack at improving the article. Thanks again for the review and feedback. Face-smile.svg - Marchjuly (talk) 22:02, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan/Assessment[edit]

Can you help me do the assessment for the Daisaku Ikeda. It is still in the start class. I think it is in between C and B class. Kelvintjy (talk) 03:03, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Sure, as long as there is no conflict of interest, and you didn't write any major portion of the article. Follow these steps:
  1. There looks to be plenty of sources, so you should go to the Daisuke Ikeda#Biography section, delete the "References needed" banner, and explain in the edit field what you did.
  2. Go to the Talk page.
  3. Hit Edit, at the top.
  4. Fill in "B" or "C" next to |class=
  5. Hit "Preview" at the bottom.
  6. In the WP:Japan, highlight and copy B-list criteria.
  7. Scroll down to the edit field, and paste those criteria next to the class=
  8. Fill in yes or no to all the B-class criteria. For a B-class article, all fields must be filled in with yes. The article will be C-class if any or blank, or marked "no".
  9. Fill in the edit field with your action.
  10. Hit Save.

Hope this helps! - Boneyard90 (talk) 12:22, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there is a conflict of interest for me and I also have contribute some portion of the article. The reason why I ask you is because you are involved in assessing majority of the WikiProject For Japan. I am on the Soka Gakkai side and I see the need to someone neutral in doing the assessment. Kelvintjy (talk) 15:08, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Sure, I'll take a look and re-assess, probably later today. - Boneyard90 (talk) 17:39, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Single and double quotation marks[edit]

Hi Boneyard90. Saw your edit summary on this edit ("Quotation marks, not apostrophes"). Just want to share that British English often uses the single quotation mark where American English would use the double quotation mark (see Comparison of American and British English § Quoting). So whether to change it or stet will depend on which national variety an article uses (per WP:ENGVAR). Cheers, Quercus solaris (talk) 22:08, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Interesting. I didn't know it was an Am/Br variation. I thought it was just lazy writing, and/or apathy for correct punctuation. I'm somewhat troubled by this, as the link you provided also called it "new English" style. However, I will, in the future, take note of the spelling, etc. in the article, and determine if it is US or UK English that's being used. Thank you for writing. - Boneyard90 (talk) 22:16, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Coordinate formats.[edit]

I just stumbled upon this edit from almost four years ago, where the coords were changed from degrees/minutes/seconds format to decimal degrees without any translation taking place, i.e. using the same digits as a different type of value. Do you suspect there may be more of these to fix? Face-smile.svg jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 02:27, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, and thanks for writing. That edit was part of a larger effort I had undertaken to place infoboxes in cemetery articles. As I recall, I did not just fill in numbers arbitrarily; but I believe I clicked on the coordinates at the bottom of the article to get a geographical information page, which may have had the coordinates in other systems. Now whether that page was set up incorrectly or not, is a different matter. But if the coordinates were filled in incorrectly, there may be a whole load of articles that need to be repaired. - Boneyard90 (talk) 06:20, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
I was imagining something like that being the case. Well... I'll fix any that I find, good excuse to go on a tour of cemeteries... jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 07:02, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
UPDATE: After skimming through the edits from 2011 with "cemetery infobox" in the summary, there were only a few that involved the coord format conversion, and all but two of those were translated correctly, so it doesn't look like a widespread problem. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 10:13, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Glad to hear that. Thank you for your efforts and the update. - Boneyard90 (talk) 13:48, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Request while you're updating Japanese train article talk pages[edit]

I've noticed you've been updating various article talk pages related to trains in Japan. While you're doing that, will you change the "Wikiproject Trains" template to be the "Trains in Japan" template, and also remove the "|Japan=yes" from the template? Here's an example. I appreciate any help. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:17, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

I just go through all the stations when I find a line that hadn't been assessed. And there have been many, many stations that were only claimed by the Train WP, and not Japan. I'll try to meet your request, but no promises. What is the difference in the templates, anyway? - Boneyard90 (talk) 21:19, 16 May 2015 (UTC)
No problems, just as you can. The difference (currently) is that only the "Trains in Japan" template will place them in the correct category by quality. I'm working to get that fixed, but no idea when that will happen. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:49, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Japanese filmmakers[edit]

Hello! Just FYI, {{WikiProject Film}} does not cover biography articles such as actors and filmmakers, those articles are covered by adding |filmbio-work-group=yes to {{WikiProject Biography}} instead. This applies to all of the film task forces as well, which means that the Japanese cinema task force does not include articles about Japanese actors, directors and filmmakers, and consequently should not have the |cinema=yes parameter on the {{WikiProject Japan}} banner. Thanks! Fortdj33 (talk) 18:27, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Oh. Thank you, I did not know that. I have tagged hundreds of biography articles with the cinema task force. Wish I had known sooner. I'll keep it in mind in the future. - Boneyard90 (talk) 18:58, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
