Survey Invite[edit]

I'm working on a study of political motivations and how they effect editing. I'd like to ask you to take a survey. The survey should take 5 minutes. Your survey responses will be kept private. Our project is documented at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikipedia_%2B_Politics.

Survey Link: http://uchicago.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH?Q_DL=1R1zIzg92FHco4d_80J3UDCpLnKyWTH_MLRP_4Jxb4ZUJGdCpiT3&Q_CHL=gl

I am asking you to participate in this study because you are a frequent editor of pages on Wikipedia that are of political interest. We would like to learn about your experiences in dealing with editors of different political orientations.

Sincere thanks for your help! Porteclefs (talk) 16:55, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

GA reviewing[edit]

What are your primary 'areas' that you do GA reviews in? Do you mainly GA review tech and locations? I am just curious. --TheSandDoctor (talk) 04:49, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

@TheSandDoctor: I wouldn't really say I have key areas for choosing reviews in. Admittedly I don't go for particularly long ones as I simply couldn't commit the time needed for a thorough undertaking, but often i'll do a micro review of an article before taking it on, to ensure I feel my involvement will be beneficial. Of course, i'll likely stay away from very specialist subjects as it may well be you'd need someone with knowledge in the field to understand whether the subject is broad, beyond just being well written and referenced. Bungle (talkcontribs) 09:23, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
First off, thank you so much for your help with Video game walkthrough and doing a thorough review on it and taking the time you did, I really do appreciate it. If you can think of any good DYK's let me know, I am sort of drawing a blank as there are a lot of possibilities.
Secondly, would you be willing to consider doing a GA on a music related article? Would you be willing to take a look at one for me and see if you think it could qualify for GA? I have been fixing up a few (and created one) that I eventually want to take to GA and like your reviewing style/detail. --TheSandDoctor (talk) 15:29, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
@TheSandDoctor: I'm quite particular about articles I choose to review, probably because I know i'll be prepared to invest time in doing a complete review and not just to increase a tally. I wouldn't necessarily say music articles is a particular interest though; which article is it you're referring to? Bungle (talkcontribs) 19:18, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
Fair enough - even if it was just your opinion on the article, I would be very appreciative. Please see Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Music#Gimme Shelter .26 Tumbling Dice. I am planning to possibly nominate Tumbling Dice today/tomorrow once I add some more sources to it as I have addressed its delisting reasons (Talk:Tumbling Dice/GA1) --TheSandDoctor (talk) 20:14, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
I have nominated Tumbling Dice. --TheSandDoctor (talk) 21:42, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Luxury rail in India[edit]

Afd discusions are not in WP:Article space and should therefore not be added article categories. There are specific administrative categories for Wikipedia deletion. thank you, Shawn in Montreal (talk) 21:12, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

@Shawn in Montreal: I think it was fairly obvious I was wiki-linking the category to demonstrate its existance, rather than trying to add the AfD to a category (which was unintentional). I see you have removed it none the less - it may have made more sense to change the markup so it just linked only, as per my original intention. Bungle (talkcontribs) 21:29, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Reversing my changes[edit]

Dear Bungle - I made the amendments to the article as the reference was added to gain a commercial advantage which is against the Wikipedia rules - that is why it was removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipIngram65 (talkcontribs) 11:02, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

@PhilipIngram65: You don't just remove a site that is being used as a citation without any explanation (especially as I notice a trend from your contributions for this particular site). If that site has a news article of some sort that collaborates what the article explains, then it's valid. If you feel there is an issue, you take it to the talk page or better yet, find an alternate reference which confirms the same information from a different source. Simply deleting references without explanation is considered, by some, to be vandalism. Bungle (talkcontribs) 13:21, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

If there was somewhere to put an explanation I would have done and I will find a more relevant reference source — Preceding unsigned comment added by PhilipIngram65 (talkcontribs) 13:24, 17 August 2017 (UTC)

Hodad's GA[edit]

Thank you for taking up this review! I apologize if it's not up to snuff. If there are any issues found in the review, I will try my best to deal with them. @Rob talk 20:29, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

@RobBertholf: The review was done quicker than I initially thought, which I have just posted with feedback for you to work through. Bungle (talkcontribs) 13:37, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Dr. Wagner[edit]

Dang I did not realize it was being reviewed, I have not had a lot of Wikipedia time lately so I just took off the nominations. I will revert my removal.  MPJ-DK  21:41, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Has been listed as failed, so I am leaving that alone. Few people have shown interest in Lucha Libre articles and the GANs have sat there for months on end so I figured it was easier to just drop them instead of have someone else spend time on them. I believe the Rey Escorpión GAN is still being reviewed so that remains open if you want to take over.  MPJ-DK  21:51, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
@MPJ-DK: It lists as failed because you withdrew the nomination. The reviewer seemed happy to allow certain improvements to be done for it to pass. I wouldn't know how to put it back to in review, though. Bungle (talkcontribs) 21:53, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

Information icon Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you copied or moved text from Skegness into Skegness Pier. While you are welcome to re-use Wikipedia's content, here or elsewhere, Wikipedia's licensing does require that you provide attribution to the original contributor(s). When copying within Wikipedia, this is supplied at minimum in an edit summary at the page into which you've copied content, disclosing the copying and linking to the copied page, e.g., copied content from [[page name]]; see that page's history for attribution. It is good practice, especially if copying is extensive, to also place a properly formatted {{copied}} template on the talk pages of the source and destination. The attribution has been provided for this situation, but if you have copied material between pages before, even if it was a long time ago, please provide attribution for that duplication. You can read more about the procedure and the reasons at Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Thank you. If you are the sole author of the prose that was moved, attribution is not required. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 12:04, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

@Diannaa: Sure. I intend to rewrite extensively, with the copied content as reference material, so I didn't think it would be a particularly big issue. In saying that, I accept making a note of the reference article in the edit history would have been beneficial. I seldom create articles using content from another, so it's not a familiar practice, though i'll note it going forward. Bungle (talkcontribs) 12:52, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Famousbirthdays.com as a source[edit]

Hi Bungle. I noticed that you recently used famousbirthdays.com as a source for information in Ned Porteous.

(See Wikipedia:Reliable_sources/Noticeboard/Archive_153#Is_famousbirthdays.com_a_reliable_source_for_personal_information). If you disagree, let's discuss it. Thanks. --Ronz (talk) 01:23, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
