ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Gareth, Thanks for your edit on The Australian Jazz Quartet. I'm the one started this article, and most of my original text survived.

Hello. I noticed that you have edited a number of articles on Catholicism. A discussion is taking place as to whether the website Catholic-Hierarchy.org is a reliable source that can be utilized on Wikipedia or whether all references and information derived from it should be deleted. This topic is currently being discussed at the Reliable Sources Noticeboard [1]. As the website's removal as a reference will affect several thousand Wikipedia articles, I believe that the broadest range of opinions should be obtained before action is taken.

Listed garden categories[edit]

Hi again - I think the new categories for listed gardens and parks by grade you created are a great idea, both I and @Rodw: have started adding to them, but before we go further, maybe we should have a quick discussion on whether the categories should be "parks and gardens" rather than "gardens and parks", in line with their parent Category:Listed parks and gardens in England? If so do you think we should take it to WP:CFD, or since the categories are so new, just do it? Another point, do you think maybe we should set up subcats for each grade by county, like the listed buildings categories - its more interesting to see them by county, and it would probably have to be done at some point anyway? Cheers Aegoceras (talk) 19:22, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

I have no strong feelings on the name but note the official designation is as per Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England. I've been adding Somerset entries so there are probably enough for a sub cat particularly in Grade II, but there are many more listed buildings than parks and gardens, so the sub cats would not grow as big. What I haven't done so far is add them all to List of sites on the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens which is a very incomplete list.— Rod talk 20:29, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
The name should absolutely be "parks and gardens"! Change it in the most convenient way possible :) At present there are c.1400 listed parks and gardens, and I believe many will already be extant articles as part of a larger house/estate. I don't want them added to the category w/out a Historic England specific parks and gardens link. I noticed for Edwardes Square that the HE link had been read incorrectly, grading the houses II* instead of II, quite a few other gardens will have higher listings than their associated buildings. Perhaps we should start stuffing them into counties at an early stage, it will need to be done eventually. I saw to my horror that Wales and Scotland don't even have graded cats, so that's more work! Longer term...HE says that most of the listed parks and gardens will be private, so photography might be lacking. Thank you both for working on this, I'm really looking forward to researching these beautiful places. Gareth E. Kegg (talk) 09:44, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
OK, I'll give it a go at moving the cats to "parks and gardens", though I can't promise it will necessarily be "convenient"! Bear with me... -- Aegoceras (talk) 11:01, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for redoing the Somerset ones while I was at work. I've now done Bristol Grade II* & II (no GI).— Rod talk 17:34, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Glad to say that Grade I in Buckinghamshire is complete. Only 1395 to go! Daunted by the fact that a few obscure villages don't have their manor house as a separate article... Gareth E. Kegg (talk) 17:37, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Hello chaps, I'm beginning to realise that assigning parent categories is tricky to say the least, we're being a little inconsistent at the moment. I think probably "Parks and open spaces in x" is probably an appropriate parent, as this kind of cat already includes subcats for "gardens in x" and "country parks in x", so therefore does embrace both parks and gardens. Whereas "gardens in x" isn't so appropriate as a "grade I listed park and garden" could be either a park or a garden. Also, "buildings and structures in x" not appropriate, as a park or garden can contain buildings but isn't a building. Those are my thoughts anyway. Or shall I just go and lie down in a darkened room. What do you think? - Aegoceras (talk) 17:46, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Why not put a quick note on a relevant project (I'm thinking of WP:UKGEO) to get help from regional/county wikiprojects to help with some of the 1000+ still to do, now that a pattern has been set (or even to comment on the best cats etc).— Rod talk 18:00, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Good idea, but what about WP:HSITES, WP:England, or WP:CATP? I don't know my way around these projects, which is best do you think? -- Aegoceras (talk) 18:11, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
I was involved in WP:HSITES when it was set up but less active now. WP:England may be OK by UKGEO may bring in Scotland, Wales & NI. I don't know WP:CATP but they may be able to advise. If you are doing lots of category work Wikipedia:HotCat is helpful (I noticed you did the Somerset ones manually).— Rod talk 18:34, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Rod. Gareth do you want to take it to WP:UKGEO, as the originator of this? I think the darkened room is calling to me... -- Aegoceras (talk) 18:47, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
I concur with the "parks and gardens in X" argument, I'll change it later. I included them in buildings and structures because more often than not, listed gardens contain listed structures and I can't ever conceive (or perhaps I don't have enough imagination?) of a situation where we have articles for every one of those listed structures as well, so I've just blanket included them. Would UKGEO be sympathetic to these categories? I've completed Surrey as well. Gareth E. Kegg (talk) 09:52, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
Where I think a note to UKGEO might help, would be in getting those with local interest involved. They will often be the ones who have contributed to articles about local landscape (& buildings etc), which can be beneficial, particularly where wp might have an article under a different name to that used by HE in the listing.— Rod talk 16:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Lily font[edit]

As a standalone article, Lily font is very weak and gets an average of one view per day. I intend to expand the Christening fonts section at Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom using some information in the stub, just not today... Firebrace (talk) 15:54, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

It's a fine article and it only got one view a day as it was solely linked to from my user page, which you would have realised had you checked the links. I'm reverting you again, and I feel you have been extremely preemptive in these merges. Gareth E. Kegg (talk) 19:16, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
The article gets one view a day because the font is hardly WP:NOTABLE enough to have its own article and no one is looking for it. All the salient points are covered at Crown Jewels; the rest is merely padding, and one or two sentences may be incorporated there. I understand why you want to keep the article but to me that isn't a good enough reason for it to be kept. Start a DRR if it bothers you that much. Firebrace (talk) 20:09, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Quote in Sarah Vaughn[edit]

I find a good way to check quotes is just to search for a few sentences of it on Google, and see if any reliable sources pop up. As long as good-quality sources (that we can be reasonably sure aren't part of an echo chamber with Wikipedia) are chosen, it's not hard to verify a quote (and if it is, and it's not a translation, then...) Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:12, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Echo chamber does worry me, and the fact I couldn't see that page, and their own references...When I wrote that section on her voice (because I was angry that some reality stars had voice subsections and she didn't) I left that quote in as it was so brilliant. It seems too specific to be false. Gareth E. Kegg (talk) 23:16, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of William E. Connor II[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on William E. Connor II 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 credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator.

Thanks, and eggs[edit]

Hi, and thanks for the thanks. Quite the body of work on your user page, thank you for all of those very good pages, many of which I'm familiar with. Nice work. A question about the Fabergé eggs. I didn't know, or think about, that each has an individual name. I think they should all be italicized as works of art, and would boldly do so but wanted to run that past you. And now...to read the signpost (above) that I missed! Randy Kryn 23:30, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Frank Sinatra[edit]

Hi, you're invited to join this. A loosely coordinated project, but one which I think is really needed to tie Sinatra-related material together, as he created his own world in a way. I think it's something which has long been needed, so hope you're interested and sign up!♦ Dr. Blofeld 09:55, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Welcome! Can you move the list you started into Wikipedia:WikiProject Frank Sinatra/Topics in relevant sections? Cheers.♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:44, 5 August 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 article 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 13:43, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
