When you do your book citations on AfD, are you actually manually typing everything from google books or is there a faster way, because google books does not allow me to copy sections. Valoem talk contrib 17:04, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Valoem. When I do book citations at AfDs and DRVs like Wikipedia:Deletion review/Log/2015 November 30#Jonathan Mayhew Wainwright (1821–1863) I manually type everything from Google Books. I am not aware of a faster way. Cunard (talk) 05:13, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Wow that is a lot of work, are you able to use high beam to find any sources defining the term before Donnelly's 2001 study? Valoem talk contrib 18:15, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
I have commented at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Involuntary celibacy (4th nomination) with sources that discuss Donnelly's 2001 study about "involuntary celibacy" to show there is a "cohesive topic". Cunard (talk) 07:23, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Try clicking the text selection tool
. Then you can copy-paste text without having to re-type it. -- RoySmith (talk) 02:52, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, RoySmith (talk · contribs)! I appreciate the screenshot, which helped me find the text selection tool on public domain books like this. This is a neat feature that will save me a lot of typing in the future when I copy text from public domain books. But the text selection tool doesn't appear for me for non-public domain books like this one, so I think it only works on public domain books. Cunard (talk) 07:23, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
  • OneNote has some tools for clipping and saving screenshots which can save a lot of retyping. Andrew D. (talk) 15:20, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Thanks Andrew Davidson (talk · contribs), for the recommendation! OneNote would be useful in clipping sources I want to save for personal use. But for AfDs and DRVs, I think typing still will be needed. I generally want to have the sources' text on the AfD or DRV so editors can see the quotes on one page without having to click on multiple links. Cunard (talk) 05:48, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Happy New Year!
Hello Cunard:

Did you know ... that back in 1885, Wikipedia editors wrote Good Articles with axes, hammers and chisels?

Thank you for your contributions to this encyclopedia using 21st century technology. I hope you don't get any unnecessary blisters.

Disambiguation link notification for January 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Deep Knowledge Ventures, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Fund (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.

I don't remember editing with you before[edit]

But I very much appreciate the work you did attempting rescue of Involuntary Celibacy and your ping today on Sandella. If I can ever be of assistance, please call on me. I would not consider such a call canvassing, because I've specifically asked you to do so. Been here ten years and I'm still always meeting someone new (to me). Thanks again. BusterD (talk) 23:48, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi BusterD. Thank you for your very kind words, and I'm glad to have met you. I was very impressed by your detailed history of the discussions at Wikipedia talk:Articles for deletion/Involuntary celibacy (3rd nomination). I'll definitely contact you again if I need help with evaluating or finding sources. Thank you for your gracious offer of help. Cunard (talk) 06:45, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Love You Baba[edit]

Ok, I'll admit I was wrong there. I think your expansion may be sufficient enough to consider listing the article for DYK. I think the DYK hook is pretty obvious. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 02:37, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, Ricky81682 (talk · contribs), for withdrawing Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Love You Baba. I've listed the article at DYK at Template:Did you know nominations/Love You Baba. Cunard (talk) 03:17, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

XM-736 8-inch projectile[edit]

Is this a real thing, I am not able to confirm it from my research, possible WP:HOAX. Valoem talk contrib 04:11, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

This is not a hoax. Here are the two sources in the article:
  1. Adams, Robert W. "CHEMICAL WARFARE IN FUTURE MILITARY OPERATIONS", Command and Staff College, United States Navy, via, April 6, 1984, accessed January 3, 2009.
  2. D'Amico,William P. , Jr. "Comments on the Flight Stability of the XM736 8-Inch Binary Projectile", (Abstract/Citation), Ballistic Research Laboratory, October 1982, accessed January 3, 2009.
The second source has a PDF link to the article. These sources might be considered primary sources, so I do not know if there is enough to meet Wikipedia:Notability#General notability guideline.

AN section you may be interested in[edit]

I think this may be of interest to you. Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard#ANRFC_again AlbinoFerret 23:03, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for the note and for your hard work and dedication in closing RfCs at WP:ANRFC. I've commented there. Cunard (talk) 07:03, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Masa Fukuda[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Masa Fukuda at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! BlueMoonset (talk) 03:17, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi there. I noticed this nomination has been stale. BlueMoonset had issues that it wasn't at a five-fold expansion. Have you made any contributions to fulfill this since then? If you have, we can request a new review. If not, I'll give a second opinion on the matter to see whether it straight-up fails. Jolly Ω Janner 04:04, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
