Great work[edit]

Your sterling efforts in coordinating islands in the Thames etc is much appreciated. Regards Motmit (talk) 17:34, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I've done all the tagged Herefordshire articles and the Thames islands were the last few for Berkshire. It's Oxfordshire next, I think.--Cavrdg (talk) 20:44, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Yup. I noticed the emptiness of Herefordshire today, after finishing pushing down articles from United_Kingdom_articles_missing_geocoordinate_data to the country level. Very well done for clearing out a couple of counties. Many thanks. --Tagishsimon (talk) 23:50, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

No big problem ... but ...[edit]

Thanks for keeping an eye on Postal codes in the United Kingdom‎; I suspect the external link they are trying to add is both WP:COI and WP:SPAM. It would make blocking the user easier if you added the appropriate template from WP:WARN on the user's page when you remove the link. In the interim, I've warned them for WP:3RR; another revert and they are a candidate for blocking. HTH Kbthompson (talk) 10:47, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Re-Red Links[edit]

I'll bear that in mind, thank you TEA14 (talk) 07:32, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

It's not a Promo.[edit]

I was not posting promotional links in wiki's "Data Recovery" page.. It's an external link to a very important read about how a lot of these fake companies (and/or misleading D.R. Software) operate.. there is way more direct promotional material on the page that has not been removed...

The link to "Epic Data Recovery" has been approved by many readers and moderators on Wikipedia for almost a year now.. A few Con artist from INDIA who have tried to remove it or spoof it before to direct people to their Bogus Software Promos (other then you).

Wiki is a public Place and I am a Professional who has help Hundreds (if not thousands) in getting there Files back FOR FREE!!!

The information i provide is crucial and realistic. If you are the only one that objects, then majority rules in this democratic country. No one else objected before, therefore its obviously helpful.

The only people who do object tend to be secretly employed by such rogue Data Recovery Companies and don't want their scheme reveled.

I would suggest you focus you energy elsewhere. Thanks for letting me know of your objection.

Regards

I've had a look at the link and it still looks like advertising to me. If you want to take it further, do raise it on the article's talk page and see if you can get a consensus to include it. --Cavrdg (talk) 18:20, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I think User:RHaworth is probably the best person to speak to. Other than that User:ClemRutter but he's off-wiki until the end of the month. Mjroots (talk) 05:43, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Bob Ainsworth rfc[edit]

Hi, I notice you've made an edit to Bob Ainsworth removing an addition by an anon regarding his flirtation with the IMG. We've actually got an rfc open on the talk page aboutthis. Please express your views.--Peter cohen (talk) 00:24, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Lifetime[edit]

I noticed when editing you recently added the template {{Lifetime}} to an article, replacing DEFAULTSORT or categories in the process. While the template {{Lifetime}} is a useful short-cut when setting up biographies it is not generally considered wise to replace existing categories or DEFAULTSORT for a number of reasons. The chief amongst them are that the template hides information from editors and automatic processes or requires additional knowledge to understand. This is only a minor point, many thanks for your contributions to Wikipedia, please keep it up!

YYYY-MM-DD numerical date format in footnotes[edit]

Hello, I think you commented on this issue earlier, and you may like to know that there is now an RfC under way on this question, at Wikipedia:Mosnum/proposal_on_YYYY-MM-DD_numerical_dates. -- Alarics (talk) 21:42, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Response, and a question[edit]

Hi Cavrdg, I responded to your note on my talk page, but in addition to that, I noticed in your contributions that you do some occasional vandal-fighting, and your reverts are decent. Would you be interested in having rollback rights being granted to your account? I know this is unrelated to your note, but I thought I would ask this, and it would make vandal-fighting a bit easier for you. Best. Acalamari 20:23, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, thanks, that does look useful. Real life is a bit too busy at present for me to do much here but I do have a biggish watch list and reverting obvious vandalism quickly would be good.--Cavrdg (talk) 06:27, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Rollback granted: as the tool is for reverting vandalism, misuse of the tool (such as revert-warring or using the tool to revert edits you disagree with) can lead to it being removed...and some administrators don't even warn editors who appear to be using the tool incorrectly. For practice, you may want to take a look at Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback. Good luck! Acalamari 16:54, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks!--Cavrdg (talk) 19:24, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Population updates[edit]

Hi, many thanks for the UK population updates that you have done. There are other templates that need to reflect the changes so the set are kept in step as they tend to be used together on articles {{English district rank}}, {{English district density}}, {{United Kingdom district population citation}} and {{United Kingdom statistics year}}. If any of the districts have changed area since the 2011 figures then {{English district area}} and {{English district area rank}} will also need updating. I also noticed that some of the codes changed so any articles that use the old code may need to be updated to reflect the change. Keith D (talk) 19:08, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I came here to post the following for Cavrdg. Perhaps it is related?
I noticed that Northumberland is showing an error in the infobox: "Area [convert: needs a number]". Perhaps that is something to do with your recent edits? I think I once fixed a similar problem, but it is outside my area and I'm hoping you can work out what the problem is. Thanks. Johnuniq (talk) 11:26, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Odd one! I've loaded the data as provided on the ONS website. Some of the codes are different from the previous ones. Northumberland came as E06000057 in place of E06000048. I looked for a reference for the change but instead found http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/snpp/sub-national-population-projections/2012-based-projections/rft-projected-coc.xls which has

Table 5: 2012-based Subnational Population Projections with Components of Change (Births, Deaths and Migration) for Regions and Local Authorities in England

Since publication on 29 May 2014, an error in five geography codes has been identified and corrected in the data tabs for males, females and persons. The areas affected are Northumberland, Gateshead, East Hertfordshire, Stevenage and Tyne and Wear (Met County)

Corrections applied:

Northumberland - 'E06000057' corrected to 'E06000048'
Gateshead - 'E08000037' corrected to 'E08000020'
East Hertfordshire - 'E07000242' corrected to 'E07000097'
Stevenage - 'E07000243' to 'E07000101'
Tyne and Wear (Met County) - 'E11000007' corrected to 'E11000004'

It looks like similar errors have happened again. So I think I'll change the codes in the data rather than in the article(s) though I'm not quite comfortable with that. -- Cavrdg (talk) 13:39, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
But two have actually changed! http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/migration1/internal-migration-by-local-authorities-in-england-and-wales/year-ending-june-2012/rft-la-region-lookup.xls ...

In particular, users should note two local authority code changes since the release for the year ending June 2011:

Local authority....June 2011....June 2012
St Albans..........E07000100....E07000240
Welwyn Hatfield....E07000104....E07000241

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Inflation script[edit]

I note that you have been going around 'fixing' the inflation templates in vartious articles that display a NaN instead of the inflated amount. There is a temporary bug in the script code that is causing this which should get fixed in a day or three. Unfortunately, your 'fix' is using a faulty script. "{{inflation-year|UK}}" is an old script that is depracated as it has an error in it which causes it to return the figure for the previous year due to an interaction with the newer "Formatprice" (but does not call the faulty code so it does at least return a value). The correct script is "{{CURRENTYEAR}})". Unfortunately, this version calls the code that has the temporary bug due to a recent change to the template code. All articles calling the script are displaying NaN at present. I have put the right wiki markup in St Paul's Cathedral (even though it does not work at present) but time constraints prevent me from adressing the others. --Elektrik Fanne 17:37, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

I was working on the basis of the documentation at Template:Inflation which says Do not use {{CURRENTYEAR}}. I'm more than happy not to do any more. If there is a fix coming, perhaps the template doc should be updated. -- Cavrdg (talk) 17:42, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Yes indeed. The script code has indeed been changed (less than a month ago) and, as you have discovered, {{CURRENTYEAR}} no longer necessarily works. It is not because {{CURRENTYEAR}} returns the wrong value or anything that should not work. It is because the inflation databases are out of date. {{CURRENTYEAR}} returns (at present) 2016 as a return value. The code used to just substitute the latest available data, but that no longer happens. There has been a lot of discussion on the point and opinions are divided as to whether the behaviour is right or not.
Changes like this should not be made to script codes because, as you had discovered, it breaks any article that uses it - and there are a lot of them. We have been forced back to using {{Inflation-year|UK}} which does not return the current year but a manually updated value (which is why it was deprecated) which should match the last year's data available in the database (which for the UK is currently 2015). I note: that the database for Germany has not been updated since 2009 (though since 2002 this should be the inflation of the euro, though there is no euro option).
In the circumstances, I can only applaud your efforts to make the articles work. I am only left to wonder, at this point, whether the {{CURRENTYEAR}} issue may resolve itself if the original code functionality is restored as some people want. --Elektrik Fanne 13:00, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
Indeed. There's never going to be a final index figure for CURRENTYEAR because the monthly figures are published in arrears. For the UK, the OBR does publish forecast figures at each budget and autumn statement. The latest are in table 1.7 of the Economic and fiscal outlook supplementary economy tables linked from here. I see CPI has been rebased to 2015 = 100. After updating all the previous figures to the new base, we could use the OBR forecast value for 2016 of 100.7 as the best estimate of current values. -- Cavrdg (talk) 13:31, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm sure that some automated process could update the 2016 figure on a month by month basis so at least any article would show the curent value of the historical amount (obviously out of date by not more than a month or so which would not be a significant error). Unfortunately, the inflation databases and the linked variables are updated entirely manually, so it currently is a major task to update all the data monthly. It is a pity, because it leaves all articles that use it with an obviously out of date 'current' value, even if it is not very out of date at the point it is read. --Elektrik Fanne 15:44, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 17[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Endorsements in the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum, 2016, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Michael Arthur (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.

Douglas Self[edit]

Hi, thanks for the extra refs about Douglas Self. I have recreated the article with a note on the talk page that speedy del is not appropriate. I've also complained on ANI as the earlier deletions were against policy. I was wondering if you'd like to add some of the refs to the article yourself, in the interests of co-operation? At least some of them would count as reliable sources to establish notability and hopefully prevent any more problems. If you'd rather not, I'm happy to do it myself - just let me know. I really appreciate your help. SmilingFace (talk) 16:49, 21 April 2016 (UTC) Thanks for adding one, I've done the rest myself now. SmilingFace (talk) 10:34, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
