JAC[edit]

Hehe, same grade. I'll have to challenge you again sometime... Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 18:56, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Indeed. — Emiellaiendiay 19:22, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

RE: WP Africa Invitation[edit]

Thanks for the invitation Emiellaiendiay. -- FayssalF - Wiki me up ® 09:26, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Welcome and thanks for all you are doing on Wikipedia[edit]

I see nobody has officially welcomed you; so that would be me. Your level of energy and creativity is herewith acknowledged. It is refreshing to see someone put so much positive effort forward, since Wikipedia is rife with people who complain and criticise, without producing much in the way of real additions. I have a few queries regarding your newly created and excellent idea for "Jumpaclass"

  • I don't see how you are doing the accounting, for example, if one creates a new article and takes it to "start class". Does that create twice the point count as just moving a "stub" to "start"?
  • What does "head to head" mean?
  • Is it allowed to help out on another article that has been listed by another editor?"

(please respond here to keep the thread intact, as i am watching this page for now.) Anlace 23:11, 22 February 2007 (UTC)




Thanks for the welcome and acknowledgement. Before I say anything else, I must rightly acknowledge Dev920 for the invention of Jumpaclass. I've only tried to get the concept started on other WikiProjects. (It orginated on WP:LGBT, as can be viewed here.) It's been quite effective in that project, so I thought it could be brought over to WP:BAY.

I'll now address your questions:

  • Besides wondering about how it would work, I haven't really considered the creation of a new article. As of now the project only considers taking a stub, start, or B-class article to a higher class. If it is to include creating articles from scratch, I'd add on an extra point for taking an article from nonexistence to stub status. So instead of two, it'd be three points.
  • Head-to-head is when an editor challenges another editor to compete in Jumpaclass. They each pick an article on the same day. Each attempts to bring his or her article to a higher class than the other, within a week. The final class of the article is judged a different editor than either of the two participating in head-to-head.
  • I suppose it is impossible to avoid having other editors work on an article at the same time, but the contributions of only the editor participating in Jumpaclass should be considered in terms of getting points. This does bring up an interesting idea: joint collaboration, which I think I might add as an option.

Check out the LGBT Jumpaclass to see how Jumpaclass works when more it's active than SFBA's currently is.

You've brought up a lot of good points, so I'll make some changes to Jumpaclass right now.

Emiellaiendiay 23:32, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

P.S. Thanks for participating in it!

Thanks for your quick clarifications. The LGBT Jumpaclass does look good, being so active. Hopefully we can stimulate a similar level of fervour. One more question/suggestion. We should make sure we have a mechanism for early review if an editor requests to allow for a shot at DYK, since DYK has only a five day window for acceptance. The stub tag needs to be removed for proper nomination to DYK. As above please respond here. Anlace 01:05, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Apologies, but I'm not very familiar with DYK. Would you please explain how it works, so that I better understand your question? Also, are you referring to the project tag with the stub class listed, or to the stub tags placed on the article page? Thanks, — Emiellaiendiay 01:24, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
DYK stands for "Did you know?". These are articles selected by administrators to appear in summary form on the main page of wikipedia. To qualify an article must be either new or newly evolved from stub to higher class. The key timing element is that it is not eligible for DYK if it is over 5 days old. Thus if we wait a full 7 days to review the newly graduated articles, they wouldnt make the deadline. It would be nice to have all the hard work of the SF bay area group be acknowledged on the main page. i see the possible solutions as follows:
  • 1. An editor could request early review by placing a tag beside her (or his) nom such as "(Review now)"
  • 2. An editor could request early review by placing a tag saying "(needs early review for DYK)". In this case the article should be scheduled for a more thorough review at your seven day mark, in case the article improves further. And at least the stub tag could be removed at the early point to allow DYK candidacy. Anlace 03:40, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. I've added the option of "speedy review" to the list. Do you think that takes care of the issue? — Emiellaiendiay 03:49, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Yes, thanks for the responsive change. That should solve it. One (hopefully) final point. I would quibble that going from scratch to "start" class should be worth two points. Cheers. Anlace 04:36, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I thought about it (especially considering I wrote the history of Piedmont, California article from scratch), but what made me make it the same as "from stub" is that it's very easy to create a stub; it could take but two minutes. In that way stubs are hardly different from starting from nothing. If you can think of any way to address this issue, I'd be happy to change the points value. — Emiellaiendiay 07:17, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Your point is a good one and i think the complexity involved of defining a "short stub" is not worth sacrificing the simplicity of use of the existing system. So you've convinced me. :) Regards. Anlace 14:44, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Farming out my ideas to other projects - I'm so proud! And is it me, or does the collaboration and project template look strangely familiar on WP:BAY? :) Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 22:17, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Jumpaclass[edit]

Thanks for the invitation! I'm afraid though that I'm more of a nuts-and-bolts person making small changes to articles. If you look here: Wikipedia:WikiGnome you will find a picture of me. :-) Schmiteye 01:35, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

All right; that's fine. But if you ever feel like contributing to an article beyond Gnome-edits, you know where Jumpaclass is! P.S. Thanks for teaching me a new Wiki-term. — Emiellaiendiay 01:39, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Importance assessments on Proj SF bay area[edit]

Thanks for all the work you ve put into this project E. Is the assessment format set up to accept "importance" ratings? I tried a couple and they didnt seem to work the same way project California works. Is there a format one needs to use? Please respond here to keep the thread intact. Best regards. Anlace 03:35, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

No, it's not set up for rating by importance, only by class. Unfortunately, I'm not savvy enough to change that, but if you know how, you're welcome to add the importance option. — Emiellaiendiay 03:42, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
well ive spent an hour rewriting the source code and got it programmed to accept "importance" levels, but the display got fouled up, so ive reverted the template to its old version before i started my efforts. perhaps we could ask for help from the programmer who did the project california page. Anlace 05:55, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Category:Lesbian novels[edit]

Hi, thanks for creating this category, it's something I felt was missing before. I have every intention of helping to fill it up and adding bisexual/gay/trans versions. I was just wondering about the name though. Do you think we might run into trouble with what exactly constitutes a "lesbian novel"? ie is it any novel by a lesbian author, one dominated by lesbian themes, main character lesbian, featuring minor lesbian characters / subplots? Maybe it should be something more along the lines of the "LGBT-related films" category. What do you think? Belovedfreak 17:18, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes I think "lesbian-themed novels" sounds better. Earlier I placed it into Category:Novels. Do you think it's ok there or should it be in Category:Novels by genre or something? Thanks Belovedfreak 18:21, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa[edit]

Well, while adding the above messages, I noticed a mention of the Africa Project and got seriously sidetracked. I've tagged some Cameroonian musicians with the AfricaProject tag, and I think I'll now go and add my name to the project! Belovedfreak 18:43, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Jumpaclass[edit]

i thought you would challenge me today on a "head-to-head"..... :) Anlace 04:24, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Great, i accept your gauntlet. i assume we are dealing with the two articles we each posted on feb 26th? as far as reviewing your article, i shall provide a skeletal review on the article talk page as a guide to help another editor finish the review. since i am a regular competitor, i think i shouldnt be a regular reviewer. what are your thoughts on this? it seems like we need to recruit some reviewers to help us with the review cycle part of Jumpaclass. In any case you have done a super job on the piedmont middle school, and if no one steps forward within a few days i shall finalise the review at your choice. how does that all sound? best. Anlace
Havens is looking great Em. Regarding Piedmont, do you wish me to complete the review? I started the re-rating on the Piedmont talk page and was hoping someone not involved in the competition could help us with reviewing. but if no one steps forward, your article needs a re-review ASAP. let me know what you think. best regards. Anlace 18:00, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
It would be great if you could reassess Piedmont Middle School. I'll try to get someone else involved in the reviewing aspect of JAC, but until then it's up to us to do it, excluding reviewing our own articles. — Emiellaiendiay 00:48, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
done. Anlace 17:30, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
congrats on your outcome of the great article on Havens; one rarely sees an article on a school of this quality. i guess our competition resulted in a tie...:) User:Quarls was good to step up and do reviews for the articles. we shall have to compete again (for a tiebreaker) after i recover from my surgery of yesterday. i have updated the February page as much as i could. I have added the points for Havens and Tolay to the point counter, but i didnt know how you wanted to file away completed "head to head" so i leave that bit to you. best regards.

WatchlistBot[edit]

I'll add WikiProject Africa to my to do list, and let you know if I have any questions, or when I get it done. Ingrid 00:05, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

I started tagging categories for you, and created the watchlist. I was tagging Arab/Arabic categories because I was thinking Saudi Arabia was part of Africa (geography is not my strong suit). So, I realize my geography error, but I also think there are a fair number of Arabs in Africa. So, please let me know if the project wants to include all Arab/Arabic categories, none, or wants me to generate a list so you can choose. Ingrid 19:58, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Notability of AfterElton.com[edit]

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on AfterElton.com, by 74.220.207.95, another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because AfterElton.com is an article about a certain website, blog, forum, or other web content that does not assert the importance or significance of that web location. Please read our criteria for speedy deletion, particularly item 7 under Articles, as well as notability guidelines for websites. Please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources which verify their content.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting AfterElton.com, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Please note, this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion, it did not nominate AfterElton.com itself. Feel free to leave a message on the bot operator's talk page if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot. --Android Mouse Bot 2 02:34, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Johann hari (again)[edit]

Hi there. This is a quick note about the editing of the Johann hari page, which I know you've taken an interest in.

As reading though the page's history will show, the user Felix-Felix has described Hari as "a self-publicising careerist, and an especially unpleasant one at that", accused him of being in favour of "the destruction of Untermenschen" (when in fact he is an Amnesty International award-winner), inserted fictitious claims he went to the most exclusive public school in Britain when in fact his father is a bus driver, and, most crucially, inserted poorly sourced claims that he "fabricated" a story he wrote about.

This is a pattern of falsehood and animus that really worries me. This user is now insisting on his right to reinsert the claims that hari farbricated a story, sourcing them to a magazine that wiki administrators have already said is not reliable. What can I do in this situation? Could you come along and back me up? - DavidR81.129.156.202 12:23, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about the above. Dave r has been smearing me with these accusations, one of which is false, the other taken out of context, and utterly irrelevant. He has also posted this defamatory message on multiple other user talk pages; [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9]. This is starting to feel a little like harassment, and not in a good way. FelixFelix talk 14:45, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Sorry about this Emille. I was trying to rally support to stop the imposition of a hateful agenda on this page. The idea that this is 'harrassment' is bizarre.81.129.156.202 11:53, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
This photo is replaceable since it is of a living person, and someone could reasonably take a picture of him and release it under a free license. Thank, Phirazo 03:09, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Roy Zimmerman screenshot.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Roy Zimmerman screenshot.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. BetacommandBot 14:44, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:DorianBlues.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:DorianBlues.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:59, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Jihad[edit]

Right, I went and saw Jihad for Love at Sheffield film festival - it is AMAZING. I wouldn't say as great as Trembling, because there were way to many closeups and I've never been fond of Islamic music, but it is very, very good. Anyway, Parvez Sharma, Muhsin Hendrick, and the guy who runs Imaan were there, but get this - I MET SANDI SIMCHA DUBOWSKI! Anyway, I told him I had wrote the article on Trembling and he was very pleased. I asked about when it was coming to Channel 4 because I wanted to record for you, and he said that it won't be on til next spring, BUT the entire gang is going to be showing it IN San Fran in a few weeks. You might want to check it out. I will still record it for you, the uni I'm at is talking about putting it on here, so I might get a copy, but I thought you might want to know. Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 22:16, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

I've no idea when or where - however, Sandi asked me to email him about getting a free screenshot of Trembling, so I can ask him then. :) Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 10:10, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Rebecka Liljeberg look to the left.jpg.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. 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.

Julie's bio[edit]

Hi, Emiellaiendiay! Your name is really hard to type. Remind me to copy/paste next time.

Anyway! I was looking through Julie's article - not the other Julie, mind you - and noticed your improvements. I have a question, though - there are a couple references to "personal correspondence". Those aren't considered reliable sources, right? Unless they're printed in a book or magazine article or something?

Just checking - I'm going to spit-and-polish clean a little so I can add her to "the list", but I wanted to check in with you. Thanks! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 01:12, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Maria Ulfah[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Maria Ulfah 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 a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Zsuzsa Czinkóczi[edit]

Nuvola apps important yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Zsuzsa Czinkóczi, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of Zsuzsa Czinkóczi.

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Emily of New Moon yellow small.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Emily of New Moon yellow small.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.

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being minor in the usual way.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. With the script in place, you can continue with this functionality indefinitely (its use is governed by WP:MINOR). If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:19, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:TPH stack.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:TPH stack.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too.

Invite to the African Destubathon[edit]

Hi. You may be interested in participating in the African Destubathon which starts on October 15. Africa currently has over 37,000 stubs and badly needs a quality improvement editathon/contest to flesh out basic stubs. There are proposed substantial prizes to give to editors who do the most geography, wildlife and women articles, and planned smaller prizes for doing to most destubs for each of the 53 African countries, so should be enjoyable! Even if contests aren't your thing we would be grateful if you could consider destubbing a few African articles during the drive to help the cause and help reduce the massive 37,000 + stub count, of which many are rated high importance (think Regions of countries etc). If you're interested in competing or just loosely contributing, whether it's a river in Malawi, a Nigerian footballer, or a South African civil rights activist, please add your name to the Contestants/participants section. Diversity of work from a lot of people will make this that bit more special. For those of you who signed up to the North African contest, that will hopefully be held in the new year.
