Picture of the day
The Gulf Stream

The Gulf Stream is an 1899 oil painting by Winslow Homer. It shows a black man in a small rudderless fishing boat struggling against the waves of the sea, and was the artist's last statement on a theme that had interested him for more than a decade. The painting is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Louis Barnett Abrahams[edit]

I saw your comment at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Louis Barnett Abrahams. You mentioned there that you are an admin at Commons and that you are trying to find a suitable picture of Louis Barnett Abrahams that could be uploaded to commons. I believe that I may have possibly found such a picture. I posted a question about that at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions#Question about adding a U.K. source image and at Commons:Help desk#Question about the PD-Art tag. If you could comment at either of those places, I would much appreciate it. Thanks, Nsk92 (talk) 14:57, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

ping Nsk92: That's exactly why I was looking! Face-wink.svg I'm at work all day today, but read through the "current items" and am always interested in history so I looked at the article first. Now I'm out of time until later! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:32, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
OK, thanks! Nsk92 (talk) 15:41, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Blog notability[edit]

ping @Binksternet: Respectfully wish your help with something here because I have been contacted offline by someone wishing to start a page about a local blog of news/etc. I looked around and didn't find any notable blogs of less than millions of readers and was wondering if you could put link to and/or provide guidance on the notability of blogs, specifically one like the one of interest? I don't find two reliable secondary sources about it and I live in the area, so I would assume I would be able to do so. It looks like mostly a press-release regurgitator with some form of automated pages for the road information and all the public record stuff. Also I have asked the someone to define their paid/unpaid relationship to the company "Lost Coast Communications" which has only a template because they own some local radio stations, see [1]. The local radio stations of course have entries, but there is apparently no entry for the parent organization at present. Nor am I aware of the notability of entities which own radio stations. Thanking you again for your help and thanks also for leaving your reply here where the archiving will be slower and the chance of a newcomer finding your reply much greater. Cheers!

I'm in the same boat. I looked around and didn't find even one reliable independent source discussing Lost Coast Outpost. Of course, WP:GNG requires multiple third party sources, so we are woefully short on notability. Binksternet (talk) 17:11, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! Ellin Beltz (talk) 15:31, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
ping @Binksternet: The draft https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Lost_Coast_Outpost was declined. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:03, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I put that draft on my watchlist a few days ago when I was taking a look around the wiki for our Lost Coast friends. I would have declined it, too, for lack of reliable secondary sources discussing the topic in depth and thus establishing notability. Binksternet (talk) 19:27, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Order of St. John[edit]

@Ellin Beltz: just a quick note as I see you are interested in the Order of St. John. I have had a great deal of difficulty on Wiki Commons over the insignia of the Order. I uploaded my own photo of my own OStJ! but this caused all sorts of problems for some unknown reason (I agree the quality wasn't the best - but that is because I took it!). I feel like deleting the multitude of incorrect images about St. John on Wiki (but I also know this would cause more problems for me! than it is worth). Anyway let's strive for accuracy & hope we can liaise together as to how to do so... many thanks. Best 23:02, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
