Harpo's Army?[edit]

You part of it?

Unfortunately not, although I do have a College jersey and attend the home matches when I can. Are you in the army?

Unfortunately I am. Didn't know there were any other Tims around Belfield Park.

Well, I would have thought the Catholic university was where the Tims hung out? I assumed Trinity, shite, was where the Huns hung out, no?--Play Brian Moore 00:46, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, no one hangs out in Belfield Park, full stop, I guess that's the problem!

Well maybe they will close UCD down then, do a bit of a Dublin City job on it.--Play Brian Moore 21:39, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Nah, UCD have practically the safest finances in the league. There's a bus heading to the Longford game on Saturday if you're interested.

I would go see some foreign sport but unfortunately the Dubs are playing and I have to watch it or hoepfully attend it.--Play Brian Moore 16:44, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Fenian, there's a fans meeting with the club in the Montrose after the Longford game this Friday if you're interested in attending.

Sandyford Eats Stillorgan (or rather Drinks Stillorgan)[edit]

OK Mr..eh...Swine, 'near Stillorgan' will have to do. Sandyford seems to be suffering from some sort of area-creep; it keeps getting bigger and swallowing up the neighbours! (Sarah777 16:21, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

Dear Mr Swine,

For your further education I copy below an extract from a history of the Dublin Water Supply (very entertaining if you like water) which I got from the Vartry Reservoir article in Wiki:

THE VARTRY SUPPLY

It had gradually come to be recognised that the water supply from the canals was inadequate and was also unsafe. Indeed, Dublin had been subject to periodic visitations of waterborne disease. A Royal Commissioner, appointed in 1860 to review the state of Dublin's Water Supply concluded that the Vartry was the best, albeit the most expensive source of water for the city. The project was promoted vigorously by the Chairman of the Waterworks committee, Sir John Gray, who has been deservedly honoured by a statue in O'Connell Street. The scheme was an outstanding success.

The Vartry Waterworks comprised an earthen dam 20m high, retaining 11 million cubic metres, slow sand filters and a clear water basin. The water was then conveyed through a 4km long tunnel and then by an 84cm cast-iron main to a large open service reservoir at Stillorgan. This scheme could deliver up to 85,000 cubic metres daily of pure water at high pressure to the city.

The increased supply coincided with the development of internal plumbing systems, water-borne sanitation and the sewering of the city, which brought modern sanitation and water supply to the more prosperous of Dublin citizens.

The system was further developed with the construction of increased storage at Roundwood, the completion of the Gray Reservoir at Stillorgan in 1923 and finally the construction of 4 additional filters at Roundwood in the early 1930's.

Photo taken in South Sandyford, obviously

Is not Brewery Road also in Stillorgan? If so that would include the top of it would it not? And does said top not extend well beyond the Reservoirs in the general direction of Sandyford? Is Stillorgan Heath not in Stillorgan? Does it not adjoin The Waters? Are not all entrances to the complex off roads which, according to An Post, are in Stillorgan - and have been - from the beginning of time?

I rest my case, but still accept you compromise - if only to humour you!!! (Sarah777 17:22, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

Ah now c'mon! That wasn't a sweeping statement, 'twas a sweeping question. The Body of Water is nearer to the EDGE of Sandyford than to the middle of Stillorgan; but 'tis much nearer the middle of Stillorgan village than to the middle of Sandyford village.

The centre of Sandyford being so far from it's edges (and getting further every day) because folk in places like Leopardstown and Stillorgan like to make it sound like they live in the mountains.

I hope this clarifies my stance on this vitally important issue. Regards to all down in Stillorgan - wherever it is!! (Sarah777 18:00, 18 February 2007 (UTC))

Hmmmm.

Stillorgan is obviously in Stillorgan, Sandyford reservoir is obviously in Sandyford. Cheers-

Mr Fenian, You miss a crucial point here - it is NOT called Sandyford Reservoir - it is officially called Stillorgan reservoir!!! (Sarah777 01:10, 19 February 2007 (UTC))

Says who?? I have already supplied TWO references (the Wiki Vartry article and the link) and now I cite Dublin City Council (which owns the reservoir): http://www.dublincity.ie/shaping_the_city/water/water_projects_and_engineering.asp

Perhaps now, instead of me proving over and over that the sun rises in the east YOU might supply a reference supporting the name 'Sandyford Reservoir'??! (Sarah777 01:24, 19 February 2007 (UTC))

A photo?!! Look here my good man, [1] I am trying to stop them changing the name of the COUNTRY and you quibble about Stillorgan Reservoir? (Sarah777 01:39, 19 February 2007 (UTC))


Dublin, Ireland[edit]

Mr FS, I'm on the night shift - but maybe tomorrow you'd take a peep; I'm heavily outnumbered - five or six I can handle with ease but they are moving into double figures! Sleep tight (Sarah777 02:29, 19 February 2007 (UTC))

You have not been involved in the flag debate on the Northern Ireland talk page. There were four option listed about the way forward. If you wish you can go here and make your position clear. regards- (Sarah777 12:28, 3 March 2007 (UTC))

The link? never thought of that but I'm new around here and am slowly learning from gnarled veterans like yerelf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sarah777 00:47, 4 March 2007 (UTC))

Random Redirects by User:Whereizben?[edit]

Mr Swine, as an experienced Wikiman maybe you can help sort out a vandal. Ghhrtvvd was created and redirected to Blackrock (in east Sandyford) by User:Whereizben. How would one delete the page? What is going on here? (Sarah777 13:19, 4 March 2007 (UTC))

  • Hi, I wanted to clarify what happened: I meant to actually request that Ghhrtvvd be deleted (and I have since done so), Corbenk had moved Blackrock to Ghhrtvvd and I moved it back and forgot to have the redirect removed. -- Whereizben - Chat with me 13:58, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Your user name[edit]

Hi there! Your username is inappropriate and violates Wikipedia's username policy. Please check out WP:CHU so you can take the necessary steps to change your username. Thanks gaillimhConas tá tú? 15:41, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Heck - I will defend Mr Swine's entitlement to his good name to the death. (Sarah777 20:34, 23 March 2007 (UTC))

I am confused as to what violates the username policy about this name. Also, wouldn't it be somewhat nicer to put forth that YOU feel that it violates the username policy, not that it does. If it blatantly violated the username policy, they would have been blocked. -- Whereizben - Chat with me - My Contributions 20:38, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Please see WP:USERNAME#Inappropriate_usernames for where, specifically, the policy is being violated. In addition, this user had actually been blocked quite a while ago for a violation of the username policy, but another administrator thought it to be "not offensive enough." His estimation was clearly wrong and as a gesture of good faith, I am asking the user to take the necessary steps to change his username instead of summarily blocking his account, as he has made some meaningful contributions and should definitely be given every opportunity to comply with Wikipedia's policies. gaillimhConas tá tú? 20:43, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
I have read that section before, and I must be missing what you are getting at, which is why I asked. I don't mean to be rude, and hopefully not stupid, but am more curious. And thank you for clarifying that more about his previous block... -- Whereizben - Chat with me - My Contributions 20:48, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Another question, is this user the same as the one here? They haven't done anything in forever, but I don't see a block on them either. -- Whereizben - Chat with me - My Contributions 20:51, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Hi again! I was previously unaware of that user and will be blocking him indefinitely and deleting his userpage, as he hasn't contributed anything to the encyclopedia (no edits in the "mainspace", which is where articles are) and his userpage is clearly an attack on the Irish (for an example of this, as the userpage might be deleted before you can view it again, he uses GAY as a failed attempt at cleverly poking fun at the GAA). I'm not sure if these users are the same person, but lets assume that they're not in good faith. With regards to the username policy, and the aforementioned section in particular, Usernames that are recognised as slurs or insults are disallowed. Such usernames fall under the scope of what is labelled Inflammatory usernames on the policy page. This applies to this user, as a "Fenian" is sometimes used as an insult directed at Catholics and nationalists. However, if someone is a member of Sinn Féin, he might identify himself and his mates as Fenians, where no insult is intended. It's a bit confusing if you're not from Ireland, and the only similar comparison I can make is that it's a bit similar to when African-Americans use the word "nigga" as a substitute for "mate" or "friend." Conversely, when those outside of the African-American community use the word, it's usually in a disparaging tone. One can see that this user is attempting to use the word "Fenian" as an insult as his full username is "Fenian Swine." As you may already know, swine is a term for pig, which is almost never used in a flattering term. I apologise if I've broken this down a bit too much, but I just wanted to be as clear as possible. If you've any other questions, feel free to contact me gaillimhConas tá tú? 21:08, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for all the great explanations! The analogy definitely explains it for me, and I do know the swine part, so I can see why it would be offensive. -- Whereizben - Chat with me - My Contributions 21:12, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Hey guys! Are we reading the same stuff here? User:Fenian Swine has lots of edits in mainspace - you can't just block him like so! Are you judge, jury and executioner? Let's cool it a bit. At least till we hear Mr Swine's side of the debate. (Sarah777 21:32, 23 March 2007 (UTC))

Also - look at his album recommendations - the guy has great taste in music. (Sarah777 21:35, 23 March 2007 (UTC))


I didn't block anyone (I'm not an admin), and an administrator can block someone if they are blatantly in violation of WP policies. If you read closely though, Gaillimh blocked Fenian._Swine, which is a totally different user. -- Whereizben - Chat with me - My Contributions 21:36, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Whereizben, I know it wasn't you! User talk:Fenian Swine is different to Fenian_Swine? Small world. Is gaillimhConas tá tú? an Administrator? (Sarah777 23:18, 23 March 2007 (UTC))

Well good to hear :) Fenian._Swine is different from Fenian_Swine (But Fenian Swine and Fenian_Swine are the same). A _ in a page name always is the same as a space, as far as WP goes. But it is the . that makes the difference in this case. And yes, gaillimhConas tá tú? is an admin, if you go to their user page and click on User Contributions on the left side under toolbox, you can view their edits, and also view their log, which shows all of their admin activity! :) Hope that helps.
Hello. I must say I'm absolutley shocked that this farcical debate has been brought once again. I'm a Republican, I want a United Ireland so therefore the name is not intended to be offensive. The name will not be changed, in accordance with previous debates. And also a big thank you to all those who have defended me here (especially Sarah777). Cheers.--Play Brian Moore 13:19, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

RE: Sore loser?[edit]

Hehe, I believe that the Tribesmen are first in the rankings! Of course this has nothing to do with the NHL, but with your username. I hope you'll note that I didn't launch into any debate, ridiculous or otherwise. I'm simply telling you that your username must be changed or you will be blocked. There are policies in place to this effect (namely WP:USERNAME), and if you choose not to abide by them, you will be blocked. gaillimhConas tá tú? 22:01, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

As you already know, you were originally indefinitely blocked for having an inappropriate username and were unblocked because an admin thought that your username was "not offensive enough." Being from Ireland, I know (as do you) that your name is obviously offensive. I did look at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Fenian Swine and your talk page archives and found absolutely no community support for such a silly username. With regards to the movie, I've a hard time taking anything in which Alan Rickman portrays Eamon de Valera seriously, haha. In all seriousness, however, please consider this a final warning to initiate a request at WP:CHU. gaillimhConas tá tú? 20:58, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
Please re-read my comments (Also, I'm not sure how you could think I am a member of FF) :) gaillimhConas tá tú? 23:50, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
Again, there is no debate. Please change your username. If you do not, you will be blocked. The only reason I didn't immediately block you upon seeing your username is because you have made some good contributions to articles. Also, to clarify, I most certainly do not follow FF. gaillimhConas tá tú? 00:05, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that you refuse to comply with Wikipedia's username policy. As I've tried to work with you on changing your username and have been rebuffed, I have gone ahead and blocked you for having a blatantly offensive username. gaillimhConas tá tú? 00:14, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Blatantly offensive to...? Play Brian Moore 01:30 IST, 31 March, 2007. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.202.189.32 (talk) 00:30, 31 March 2007 (UTC).
Silly me, I didn't cop that I could still edit my own talk page. Can I simply ask why, after 20 months editing properly here without vadilising or blanking or abusing users, that one power mad administrator has taken it upon himself to block me without consulting any other administrators and without having even a debate with me? "there is no debate". This seems rediculously unfair considering that I have been here for 20 months as a user and twice have been questioned about my name and the result has beeb the same. I should be unblocked so I can argue my case.--Play Brian Moore 14:44, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Do I hear the tramp tramp tramp of jackboots somewhere? (Sarah777 01:11, 28 March 2007 (UTC)) Since when did you start deleting an editors comments on another editors userpage? Kindly desist. You are making my point for me. (Sarah777 00:23, 30 March 2007 (UTC))


And regarding the name, as a self-confessed RABID Republican I find Mr Swine's handle rather charming, if slightly silly. (Sarah777 00:25, 30 March 2007 (UTC))

Naomh Olaf and Crokes[edit]

Also, would someone kindly revert the Kilmacud Crokes GAA page to my last version. The newer edits have included adding under-age players who obviously are not notable and then adding some crap about the 7's which is not true. Cheers.--Play Brian Moore 14:59, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Mr Swine, you'll have to be more explicit in your requirements as I can't sort the Kilmacud wheat from the Kilmacud chaff. We are strictly Naomhh Olaf up here. I will remove any OBVIOUS vandalism. Regards (Sarah777 15:09, 31 March 2007 (UTC))

Calvary postponed?
Anything from this edit " 19:41, 12 February 2007 " onwards should be reverted. Anything added after that is untrue. On a minor point, would you say Naomh Olaf's clubhouse is in Sandyford or south-south east Stillorgan?--Play Brian Moore 15:12, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

OK. I hope you are not leading me astray here. Olaf's is definitely in Sandyford; though the section of the SIE it inhabits is called the "Stillorgan Business Park". In fact you could puck a sliothar from the Clubhouse into Kilmacud Luas Stop. Maybe the borders should be staked out and mapped? (Sarah777 15:21, 31 March 2007 (UTC))

I agree. Mapping the borders of Sandyford is the only reasonable, smart and sensible thing to do. It would prevent these online arguments. Cheers for fixing the article of Dublin's best club.--Play Brian Moore 15:44, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

In view of your comments above and at Wikipedia talk:Requests for comment/User names/Fenian Swine#Closing, I must remind you:

  1. Please see Wikipedia's no personal attacks policy. Comment on content, not on contributors. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users. Note that continued personal attacks will lead to blocks for disruption. Please stay cool and keep this in mind while editing.
  2. Please assume good faith when dealing with other editors.

These are bedrock principles for civil and collegial discourse on Wikipedia. Kindly consider your comments carefully in that light. Thank you. -- BenTALK/HIST 01:29, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Ken doherty.jpeg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Ken doherty.jpeg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. 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:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 12:20, 21 September 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Platonides 12:20, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

If your comments were true, then the page National Football League probably would have been titled "National Football League (United States)" and the dis-ambiguation page would have been titled National Football League.

I was hoping you could take a look at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pádraig Mac Lochlainn and give us some insight. You're the first Irish Wikipedian that came to mind. --Auto (talk / contribs) 11:09, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Oasis lyrics[edit]

Thank you for answering me the other day at Talk:Oasis, but once in www.oasisnet.com, what do I have to do or where do I have to click to have access to the lyrics? I had already entered that website and I couldn't find the lyrics anywhere. Thank you for helping me :) --Pabletex (talk) 02:26, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Oasis (band)[edit]

Re this edit. It seems to me that the source cited said that there's 70 million sales, not 50. Is there something I missed? Tim Song (talk) 05:32, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I'm changing it to conform to the source. Tell me if there's a problem. Tim Song (talk) 16:27, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Crest.jpeg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Crest.jpeg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images 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 "file" 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 "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Courcelles 03:46, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
