Thank you for the feedback regarding the proper channels for communication here. My apologies for the edit I made to your page. Cheers! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Romashkowi (talkcontribs) 21:04, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Replied at t'other end, thanks. :) DBaK (talk) 00:10, 9 December 2017 (UTC)

Cragside PR[edit]

As ever with these things, closing the PR is a teensy bit more complicated than one would hope. But I think it's archived now, and the FAC looks splendidly set up. And our first support within 30 minutes! Way to go! Do you want me to drop notes on the PR contributor pages? KJP1 (talk) 15:52, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

oh yes, that would be great, thanks. I must confess that I thought the PR was already closed! I will go and look and see what formalities you had to undertake. Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 15:53, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Will do. The PR Instructions give two templates that you need to put on the Article Talkpage, and the Article PR page. Once you place these, the former puts the Closed PR Notice on the Talkpage, and the latter tees up the bot to close the PR on the main PR page. I've done them both, but you'll want to know for your next PR! Now, off to see what NM says about the Magician image. We may have to replace it. KJP1 (talk) 16:03, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
No, fortunately we don't. Nikki's early Image Review is very helpful. We shall also need a Sources review, unless someone does one unsolicited. Brian B often obliges. As and when we do, we can go through the request process together. KJP1 (talk) 16:11, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you notes all sent. KJP1 (talk) 16:39, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────KJP1, thanks very much for all the above. I've done a little bit more at FAC, but am still a little strangled for time. And sleep. I'm about to leave you a note about the Krupps usage on your Talk page. Cheers DBaK (talk)

Arthur Sullivan[edit]

As no good deed goes unpunished, we are alerting everyone who was kind enough to contribute to the peer review on Sullivan (I copied your comment from my talk page to the PR page) that Ssilvers and I now have the article up for FAC. If you have the time and inclination to look in, we shall be most grateful. Tim riley talk 12:06, 14 December 2017 (UTC)

Tim riley thank you! I am flattered by the request and will participate to the best of my limited abilities. I have a couple of minor ideas but no time right now to organize a proper response ... I will, somehow. On Good Deeds may I respectfully point out that I have, in fact, already been punished - I listened to Ivanhoe. Right through. There is or should be a UN Convention on this kind of thing! Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 13:19, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Well, you beat me hands down. I've had the Chandos recording since more or less its original date of issue, but have never quite managed to get through it all. You'd much better listen to Iolanthe, The Mikado or, if you want "serious" Sullivan the Irish Symphony, which is not quite Beethoven but is full of good tunes. Meanwhile I shall arrange for KJP1 to slap your wrists if you persist in running down your own abilities. I have seen quite a bit of your fine work, and there's no call for false modesty. No rush on the review, by the bye. You know how leisurely the FAC process can (rightly) be. Tim riley talk 16:14, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your very kind comments and yes, Ivanhoe ... gosh. I do know and love several of the comic operas, thanks, having attended a school which did lovely joint productions with its sister school all through my teenage years, requiring the services of someone who played, or at least owned, a trumpet. What fun! (And gurls. I was most surprised.) I will most certainly give the Irish Symphony a try, thank you; I am starting from a Good Place in that after Ivanhoe things can only get better. With all good wishes DBaK (talk) 16:26, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
No, no! Things can get worse: a new recording of The Light of the World is coming out soon, I believe! Thanks also from me. -- Ssilvers (talk) 11:32, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Cragside FAC[edit]

Well, six Supports and an Image Review within 24 hours of your posting it. Not bad for the over-modest DBK. Work doesn't permit me to do much tomorrow but I'll get to the rest of Tim's and Cassianto's comments on Saturday if you haven't got there before me. We do need a Sources review and I'll ask Brian if he can pick this up. Or we can apply through the normal channels. But it's looking pretty healthy. With sincere thanks and best regards. KJP1 (talk) 01:14, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Oh, note to selves. We mustn't forget Johnbod's prices comment, which we can weave into the footnote. KJP1 (talk) 07:21, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
Great, thanks very much for that, and yes re the pricing note. I too have a bit of a day on today, so I will be looking again at all this when I next have time, which is probably tomorrow. Thanks again, it's been very very interesting. Cheers DBaK (talk) 07:31, 15 December 2017 (UTC)
