1693 Sicily earthquake[edit]

Hi Gioto, thanks for letting me know that you're working on that earthquake, I wasn't going to get around to that one for a while. Nice to see another editor expanding one of these. I'll see if I can add anything when you've done. I've been to Noto and it was only later that I understood why it has such a coherent architectural style. Cheers, Mikenorton (talk) 23:12, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Mikenorton, will do, Thanks Gioto (talk) 23:14, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Thought that I would have a go at expanding this, now that you got me looking at it. I've based a lot of it on the CFTI4MED online catalogue, which is mainly in Italian, so you might want to check my translations (I say my, they're actually googletranslate's), I'm assuming that you're an Italian speaker, right? If there's anything that you have, particularly on details of the damage or on the reconstruction, which is a bit thin at the moment, that would be great, but anything at all that would add to the article. This is a pretty important event and it was irking me that it was only a stub. I plan to submit this to WP:DYK in the next few days, once I've thought up a hook (there's a lot to choose from in this case I reckon) and added inline citations for the few uncited bits. The stuff about the origin of the earthquake is pretty complex to me as a specialist, so I don't know if I've managed to explain it such that non-specialists can follow it - I'm always happy to get feedback on how easy the technical bits are to read. Cheers, Mikenorton (talk) 21:19, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
thanks for the 1693 expansion - I got lost on the technical stuff, and was slowly writing it based on your other articles. (left link to the sources I had found) should I create a table of the towns hit? Gioto (talk) 01:13, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
I just noticed your userpage on the earthquake - a lot of sources there. I won't have much more time this weekend, but I'll take a look when I get the chance, but go ahead and add some of them if you think that they'll help and the table of damaged towns/cities sounds like a nice idea. Mikenorton (talk) 21:25, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Will do and cfti4med is great, will check your translation, thanks Gioto (talk) 01:09, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
I added something on the tsunami deposits using two of your sources. Mikenorton (talk) 22:14, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

DYK nomination[edit]

Hi Gioto, I've now nominated the article at DYK, see Template:Did you know nominations/1693 Sicily earthquake, as a 5x expansion. I've credited you as part expander. If you manage to produce that table it would be great, but no pressure. It will probably take about 10 days to make it onto the main page, possibly a bit longer. Cheers, Mikenorton (talk) 22:12, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Looks good, I have read over the article and feel it to be very informative. Instead of a table, I may just list the towns and as many of those towns no longer exist add to the Category:Former_populated_places_in_Italy, Thanks Gioto (talk) 05:34, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

1968 Belice earthquake[edit]

Hi Gioto, I just started expanding the 1968 Belice earthquake article. I was looking for images and took one from the Italian article, but I've since noticed that you removed the same image back in November with the summary 'picture from wrong earthquake'. I've assumed that as Poggioreale was rebuilt in a new location, that this picture was taken in 2003 in the original location showing an example of the damage, am I wrong? Mikenorton (talk) 12:32, 1 July 2012 (UTC)

Archives[edit]

Hi Gioto, I hope you're enjoying your wikibreak ... I hope it's for good reasons, not bad ones. You probably don't know me, but I'm an admin who, among other things, enjoys standardising talk page archives. Thanks for your efforts in this regard, but I've gone through your contributions and I've unfortunately had to modify many of the talk page archives that you created. Firstly, you created them under incorrect titles – their titles should end with "/Archive 1", not "/Archive1", per Wikipedia's guideline on archiving. This makes it possible to type {{archivebox|auto=yes}} on a talk page and get an automated archive box, with no further human input required. Also, when archiving a talk page, it's a good idea to add {{talkarchive}} (for one archive) or {{atnhead}} (for navigation between many archives), to make it obvious that it's an archive and shouldn't be modified; I've done this to all the archives you manually created. Lastly, it's not a good idea to create a talk page archive with only a few discussions; talk pages should only be archived when they exceed 75 kilobytes or when they have at least ten old topics, per the guideline linked above. Graham87 12:36, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Back from break, Thank you for the information, I will make sure I do. Gioto (talk)
No worries, and welcome back. I've replaced some of the broken links to tools on your user page with working links; hope you don't mind. Also, please sign messages with four tildes rather than three, and it might be a good idea to brush up again on Indentation of talk page messages; I've fixed it in this thread. Graham87 15:00, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Noted. Thanks for the update to my user page. Time to refresh myself on how to use a wiki. Gioto (talk) 04:02, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of SmartGenealogy[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article SmartGenealogy has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Non-notable software. No reviews found online.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Very sad, really was a unique program, and very few genealogy programs that are not pushed by big companies are listed. Gioto (talk)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Correctly filling out latest release dates[edit]

Hi.

Regarding your edits in Handbrake article, there are a couple of things you should. You could read them in the documentation page, but you evidently didn't.

  1. {{Start date and age}} (or {{release date}} if you prefer) has a |df=. It accepts only "yes" and "no". But you put "yes/no" in there. Rainbow trout.pngWhack!
  2. You put a huge lot of empty fields in the article. Do you think it is harmless? Well, you are wrong. Sometimes when you leave out a field, the template takes it to mean "user didn't say anything in this regard". But adding a field and not filling it out is sometimes taken to mean "user explicitly said 'nothing'".
  3. |released= field specifies the date on which version 1.0 came out. Handbrake still does not have a version 1.0. Open-source community is extremely slow sometimes.

I left good changes like |author= and |language= to be.

If you have question, please feel free to ask. I'll drop by.

Best regards,
Codename Lisa (talk) 01:53, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Pandora release date[edit]

Could you please give a source to the release date of the Pandora you added recently? -- Lightkey (talk) 23:17, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Sure, taken from the first paragraph of the wiki article The first copy was released in May 2008 , sorry don't have time to work out who added that paragraph. Gioto (talk) 00:48, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
That is not a source, it clearly says otherwise further down. That error was added by Tjbright29 three years ago. -- Lightkey (talk) 06:07, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Between the Lines (Australian TV series)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Between the Lines (Australian TV series) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Unsourced, two sentence article about a non-notable television program. WP:DEL7 and WP:DEL8. Article was created by a user now banned.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Please note: I'm notifying you as a significant contributor to the article. -- Whats new?(talk) 04:39, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Thanks added some references and removed template as the show was pretty good Gioto (talk)
The show may have been good in your opinion, but that does not mean it deserves its own article on Wikipedia. I still have issues regarding its notability. Many of the references you used were from unreliable sources (such as IMDB or promotional websites) which I have removed. Additionally, you haven't formatted the references properly. I still am not convinced the article meets notability requirements, and if the article is not or cannot be improved to meet notability, I'll consider putting the article up at AfD. -- Whats new?(talk) 08:37, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
