Article J. Gwyn Griffiths[edit]

I see you removed my tag without discussing the issue or improving the article. Technically, this is a {{one source}}, relying mostly on a single source. I was trying to be charitable with a {{refimprove}}, instead.

Removing the tag does not change the fact that the article is not based on sufficient sources. I am not changing the article in any way, simply stating the obvious so that a casual reader will be aware that the article may not be fully researched or developed.

What the tag does do is encourage people who are a subject matter expert to improve the article by finding and adding new sources. That is the entire point and spirit of Wikipedia. If you don't have additional sources, wouldn't you welcome new people adding to the article? That's what the tag is doing.

Please do not remove the tag again without addressing the issue. To do otherwise is disruptive, and is known as edit-warring. The tag is a reflection of the current state of the article. It is not a reflection on you, personally. Please try to understand that, and understand that other people here are trying to help improve Wikipedia as a whole. I thank you for your understanding and co-operation. Hi-storian (talk) 00:05, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

A cookie for you![edit]

Choco chip cookie.png Thanks again for calming down and ending your editwar. I hope you take my comments to heart, and not try that again, ever. We're all trying to do the same thing, make Wikipedia a better place for EVERYONE. Please try to remember that. I hope to work constructively with you in the future. Enjoy the cookie!

Novello[edit]

Hello. I had no plans to nominate it for GA. You can if you like, but I am pretty busy and may not be able to help out much. I do not have any books about Novello, so if you nominate it, you should be prepared to go to the library. -- Ssilvers (talk) 21:54, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

I'm sure you've not forgotten but the WP:Awaken the Dragon contest starts in 4 and a half hours time. I wish you the best of luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:20, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Rachel Barrett looks very impressive; good luck with the GA review! Have you found anything in your sources which could be added to Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst Memorial? (And obviously it can wait till after the end of April.) Ham II (talk) 18:18, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Stub Obliteration[edit]

For this week I'm introducing a sort of game to blast away those stale old stubs with a prize at the end of it. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Wales/Awaken the Dragon/Stub Obliteration 2016. Expansion rules don't apply to any articles done through this, all you have to do is ensure every article you submit is minimum 1.5kb readable prose in total and adequately sourced and readable and remove the stub tag and update the project tag on the talk page. It could be that the article is 1.2kb readable prose and you simply add 0.3 kb prose and just quickly smarten up the sources and give a minor copyedit. The goal is reducing the number of stubs we have and making them more consistent, minimum start class entries. Read the top for the rules and more details and add your name to it in the style of the main entries page if you want to participate. It's open to contestants and anybody who is participating in the editathon independently. Potentially a lot of points can be earned from mass basic expansions with this!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:16, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Formatting[edit]

Hi, mentioned the Barry Railway to Seth. Placing a 100 bonus on that for GA status! Missing article incredibly. Tell me, do you have an issue with the sourcing in St Catharine's Church, Baglan. Deb seems happy with it, I had rather hoped she could format with the title and publisher separate. Shall I permit it? I don't want to put people off contributing, but don't think it's too difficult to start doing it.♦ Dr. Blofeld 15:43, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks are in order! - I hadn't realised it was you that had done it. Deb (talk) 10:04, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Much better now, thanks. If you can do that and check length before you submit I can quickly approve them and save you time!♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:10, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Updating needed[edit]

Hi again. While making this edit, I noticed that the article WRU League 2 West is considerably out of date, suggesting that it may not be the only one on Welsh rugby. It seems that the SWALEC league division rules have been updated recently. I bring it to your notice because I'm in no position to edit this stuff from afar.

Thanks for the Barn Star[edit]

Thanks very much for the Barn Star. :) Much appreciated. I'm trying to do some fixing on some of these sadly neglected articles ahead of the Paralympic Games in Rio. Please feel more than free to copy edit these edits because I keep picking up typos, and sometimes speed makes that worse. Also, any thoughts on organization, section headings? Please do act on them. I've done some but not completely happy with most of them other than not liking what was there. There are also flow issues because of organization. Some stuff could go in more than one place. And yeah, any content additions, more love from me. :D --LauraHale (talk) 15:31, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge[edit]

Hi there. I've started a new initiative, the Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. It's a long term goal to bring about 10,000 article improvements to the UK and Ireland. Through two contests involving just six or seven weeks of editing so far we've produced over 1500 improvements. Long term if we have more people chipping it and adding articles they've edited independently as well from all areas of the UK then reaching that target is all possible. I think it would be an amazing achievement to see 10,000 articles improvements by editors chipping in. If you support this and think you might want to contribute towards this long term please sign up in the Contributors section. No obligations, just post work on anything you feel like whenever you want, though try to avoid basic stubs if possible as we're trying to reduce the overall stub count and improve general comprehension and quality. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:09, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

I cannot believe that no one had written an article about Angela_Madsen - she is such an inspiring person.

Rio[edit]

Hey Fruitmonkey. Yeah. I am in Rio. There are some difficulties getting copyright usable images. I know anything in the Paralympic venues, unless released by a Broadcasting Rights Holder, doesn't work copyright wise and should be deleted from Commons. I'm trying to get as many images as I possibly can that are copyright free when I can. They aren't necessarily great. I'm shoving them into the relevant categories when I can get them and trying to link them. I apologize for lack of quality as I feel a bit guilty but copyright restrictions are a pain in the ass. :( But yeah, hopefully I can get a few more. I've talked to some people to try to get them if they have availabiliy. --LauraHale (talk) 12:53, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

DYK for Angela Madsen[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 16 September 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Angela Madsen, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Paralympian shot putter Angela Madsen (pictured) has also rowed across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Angela Madsen. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Angela Madsen), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
