Opinion Polling next UK Gen Election: graph[edit]

Hi, I understand from user:Impru20 that he will add if polling results for Greens are in the main table for the entire period 2010-2014. Since I learnt that from Impru, 7 days ago, I've added 7+ months of Green Party shares in 2014 and to 31 rows of the 2010 table (that I had to add the new column to first, and is harder, because fewer of teh URLs are correct after 4 years). Perhaps, 81.58.144.30, you want to join me in filling in the data? DrArsenal (talk) 18:20, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks for all the work! I'll start adding some old Green Party figures :) Chessrat (talk) 02:46, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
I was really pleased to see that you have come back to working on them: it feels like the end is in sight! ...However, can you be more careful, please - I was looking through the diffs of those you did in the early hours, and noticed some obvious errors - a couple of times when you forgot to adjust the 'others' and some where you seem to have wrongly 'corrected' ComRes and ICM polls. For the ComRes ones I have added notes so editors can see where to look when they think of editing that particular poll - perhaps you could have a look to see why I have put the figures I have in the table? Please don't let that put you off working on the backlog of Green shares - and please do ask for advice/ideas if you think it will help. Thanks DrArsenal (talk) 22:32, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Oh, thanks for spotting that! I had tried to get into a routine of updating "others"- but must have gone too carelessly and missed a few. Sorry about that. Those ComRes tables are very confusing, so I think in the future I'll skip them when doing the general editing, and get back to them later if no one else has finished them. Once again, thanks so much for doing all of this work! Chessrat (talk) 23:40, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely. I think both Headlightmorning and I have found (having done it strictly by date first) that it is easier to get into a routine of doing a load of polls of one particular pollster before moving on to different pollsters. DrArsenal (talk) 13:41, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the contributions[edit]

Beans on toast.jpg Beans on toast for you!
Thanks for all your work so now we have good coverage of green shares all the way back to October 2011. I also noticed that it was just as well we were working on different years, otherwise we would have had an edit conflict tonight. So, in the interests of avoiding edit conflicts, any thoughts what bit you will try to tackle next?

Any way BIG thanks. DrArsenal (talk) 22:08, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

To be honest, I'm not sure what to tackle next. That October 2011 gap needs filling but the data is currently inaccessible... Same with many 2010 surveys. I don't know if the data has been intentionally been made private or accidentally concealed. Will probably fill in the 2012 gaps once other jobs have been done. And try to find the missing 2010 data. Chessrat (talk) 23:39, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Wow! Thanks for getting 2010 done.

Oct 2011 YouGovs seem to be the biggest problem, but try as I might, I can't find them. Techniques that have found all sorts of others don't work with them. So, time to ask impru20 to change the 'Graphical Summary', I think? DrArsenal (talk) 07:37, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

No problem :) Yep, I've tried to find October 2011 YouGovs as well, but no dice. Short of actually contacting YouGov themself, I think we've done the most we can do. Agreed, time for a graph update. Chessrat (talk) 10:35, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
Nvm, found the Oct 2011s. https://yougov.co.uk/news/categories/politics/?page=153 http://cdn.yougov.com/cumulus_uploads/document/2011-10-24/YG-Archives-Pol-Sun-results-241011.pdf Will complete the table. Also, nice graph here. http://cdn.yougov.com/cumulus_uploads/inlineimage/2014-12-04/Monthlytotal.png Chessrat (talk) 13:13, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Cheers![edit]

Ale Bitter.jpg Time to share a beer!
I thought those of us who worked to backdate Green shares at Opinion polling for the 2015 United Kingdom general election and clear up the mess of the UKIP 2011 shares there should share a beer to celebrate 'mission accomplished'. DrArsenal (talk) 20:13, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

PROD rationale for Christina Cock (Swedish pioneer)[edit]

Technically, the article wasn't recently-created - it was buried in the edit history of a page that had morphed into a page about someone else (see Christina Cock and the deletion and move logs for that page, Christina Cock (Swedish pioneer), and the typo-generated page Christina Cock (Swedish poineer for details). The rest of your rationales are sound. Please consider re-wording "recently created" in your rationale. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 21:36, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

HH Ferry route[edit]

Hello ! You put an "advertise warning" on a part of the HH Ferry route article. I can see your point, and it was correctly done. It was unintentional bias from my side, due to the time I spend on this article - and could at the time perhaps not see "the forest due to all the trees". I have removed a lot of "coffee breaks" etc. So I wonder if could you kindly could have a new new look at the part. Perhaps even more ought to be removed, and I guess your eyes are not "contaminated" due to many hours, as still may be the case with me in this article. I'm very open for any kind of suggestion to improve the part further. Thanks ! Boeing720 (talk) 07:51, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Second attempt. I have now reduced the part even further. And as I now find it balanced - and you haven't made any comments (here or in the article), I removed the warning. I you think this was incorrectly done my me, just put it back. (and preferably with some comments to what still is wrong, if thst's the case) Thanks! Boeing720 (talk) 02:53, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dollarydoo[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello. A tag has been placed on Dollarydoo requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

I have a possible solution[edit]

Could you make the statistical tie between Clinton, Trump, and McMullin one color on the map? You can pick the color, this would make things easier. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 16:11, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

@Knowledgekid87: That would work, but goes against the long-standing convention of stripes=tie, and would be less easy to understand at first glance. I think that my current solution is best (the only problem is that stray white box, and I'll try to work out how to get rid of it) Chessrat (talk, contributions) 16:20, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

Spanish was spoken by 60% of population in early 20th century? Never read that in any history book about Philippines.

Need regular updates of elo rating in other Wikipedias also[edit]

hai, I am from Malayalam wikipedia (ml). I notice the Template {{Elo rating}} in which you update the data regularly. Can you update the same in ml wiki ml:template:Elo rating by help of Bot or something else.-Arjunkmohan (talk) 07:32, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

@Arjunkmohan: I update the data manually every month, and don't know how to create a bot. So it would be too much work for me to do the updates for more than one Wikipedia, sorry!

Doug Jones[edit]

I have undone your RM closure after less than an hour, and opened the RM again per IAR. There was no consensus between the two titles, and a rush to establish a stable title would be inappropriate and make it more difficult for whomever eventually closes the RM. Please let the ongoing discussion play out. I've move protected it also to let the RM play out, but if there is a clear consensus for a SNOW close over the next day or so, myself or another uninvolved admin can execute a move.

Proposal from User:DemocraticSocialism[edit]

I see that you support the idea of merging the "List of Roman emperors" and the "List of Byzantine emperors" articles. Although I agree, I've come up with a compromise solution: merge the two, and retitle it, "List of Roman and Byzantine emperors". I've decided to go around contacting those involved in the debate, trying to get support for my idea, and you're the second person I've contacted on this idea. Please write back! — Preceding unsigned comment added by DemocraticSocialism (talkcontribs) 17:29, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

@DemocraticSocialism: I agree, and proposed that exact thing (merging into a List of Roman and Byzantine emperors article) on the talk page on 6 October. Maybe you overlooked the part of the discussion where I suggested that? Chessrat (talk, contributions) 18:35, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Andrew Tang (2nd nomination) until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. John from Idegon (talk) 07:03, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

TOC in Deaths in 2018[edit]

Hi. The TOC as you recently modified it only currently appears in completed archived versions of the Deaths pages which have all the date links working. The "TOC right" in use (agreed during historic consensus) adds a link for each day during the work-in-progress page that is the current Deaths in 2018, and contains no redlinks or non-working date links. A change such as the one you made would require a new consensus among editors and needs a section opened on the talk page to discuss such a change. Thanks.
