Wahaha Danone joint venture[edit]

I just created this article on this very topical subject. The subject matter would make for a good featured article, so I am hoping to enlist your help to get it there qualitatively. Maybe you would be interested in translating it? The most important sources are in Chinese. ;-) Ohconfucius 04:03, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Honours[edit]

Well I suppose the London Gazette does actually still use them 2008 New Year Honours, but most newspapers no longer do so eg The Guardian style guide, Acronyms and abbreviations Wikipedia isn't really a formal document, but an encyclopaedia after all, so are usage tends toward that of general newspapers. David Underdown (talk) 13:42, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

I also meant to say that otherwise there was a mix of usage in the article, not using full stops in his postnominals, but using them in the Honours list. In addition, the London Gazette provides the official record of all British honours, and can be searched (back to the 1660s!) here. Obviously with Chinese names it's worth trying both orderings of personal and family names. The search facility isn't 100% due to the way older additions have been scanned in and automatically converted to text, so I've been building up an index of Honours lists, see User:David Underdown/Honours which may mean you can find the relevant information manually if you already know what year an honour was given. David Underdown (talk) 13:54, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
The Gazette did revamp their website in October last year, and the search is now better than it was, I don't know if you've tried again since that time. Bear in mind also that The New Year list is usually published at the end of the previous December - the award of Honours always includes the phrase "graciously pleased", so if you enter that as you search term, and restrict the dates to say 25 December and 3 january of the year you're actually interested in, you should get somewhere. Similary the birthday honours are normally inlate may to Mid June, "raciously pleased" should work there too, but "birthday" is also quite useful.

Re: Henry Pollock[edit]

Well, besides the fact that it should have been put under the 17th rather than the 19th (which the commenter should've just went and fixed themselves for you), there was no inline citation for the hook, which we're trying to make a requirement. It is a very nice article though, try adding in some citations and you could probably get it to GA status rather easily. Wizardman 15:29, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

London Gazette[edit]

Clithering, it would be useful if you could use the template {{LondonGazette}} for references. It may have settled down now, but there have been some big changes over time in the way they put the urls together, if the templates used, it means all the references can be fixed automatically when that happens, just by updating the template, otherwise it's necessary to find every single article which uses the the gazette and manually edit them, which is a deeply tedious task.

Orphaned non-free media (File:Bno cover.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Bno cover.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:29, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations on your latest article which I noticed because of DYK and enjoyed very much. I have tried to contribute a more international style of English, I hope it helps. I get the impression that your account of the negotiations reflects a Chinese/Hong Kong Government POV, rather than a neutral one? Perhaps someone will help balance it from another POV. Many thanks for an interesting afternoon Jezza (talk) 15:57, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

whatdotheyknow.com[edit]

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/help/privacy#real_name

" Can I make an FOI request using a pseudonym?

Technically, you must use your real name for your request to be a valid Freedom of Information request in law. See this guidance from the Information Commissioner (https://www.ico.gov.uk/upload/documents/library/freedom_of_information/detailed_specialist_guides/name_of_applicant_fop083_v1.pdf ) (January 2009).

However, the same guidance also says it is good practice for the public authority to still consider a request made using an obvious pseudonym. You should refer to this if a public authority refuses a request because you used a pseudonym.

Be careful though, even if the authority follows this good practice, the pseudonym will probably make it impossible for you to complain to the Information Commissioner later about the handling of your request.

There are several good alternatives to using a pseudonym.

Use a different form of your name. The guidance says that "Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts" can make a valid request as "Arthur Roberts", "A. T. Roberts", or "Mr Roberts", but not as "Arthur" or "A.T.R.".

Women may use their maiden name.

In most cases, you may use any name by which you are "widely known and/or is regularly used".

Use the name of an organisation, the name of a company, the trading name of a company, or the trading name of a sole trader.

Ask someone else to make the request on your behalf.

You may, if you are really stuck, ask us to make the request on your behalf. Please contact us (http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/help/contact/ ) with a good reason why you cannot make the request yourself and cannot ask a friend to. We don't have the resources to do this for everyone.

Please do not try to impersonate someone else. "

Edward Tyrer[edit]

I reviewed Template:Did you know nominations/Edward Tyrer and am uncomfortable with some of the text in the article — not that you included irrelevant information or forgot to mention important topics, but simply that the wording isn't easily understandable. I'd be willing to help with cleanup, but there are some passages that I don't understand, so either you'll need to reword things yourself, or I'll have to ask you to explain certain passages. If we can resolve this issue, the article will be ready for DYK. Nyttend (talk) 22:08, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your help! I just now reread the article and found far fewer difficulties, and I decided to change everything else that I could find, which wasn't very much; most of the bits that I changed were cases of going from ’ and ″ characters to ' and ". Could you please review it to ensure that I didn't change the meaning of anything? When you approve my changes or when you correct them, the page will be ready for DYK. Nyttend (talk) 13:15, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Judiciary of Macao[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Judiciary of Macao requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is a deprecated or orphaned template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it must be substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can 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.
