Hi, Goustien! In light of your recent contributions to one of Wikipedia's Arctic-related articles, you are graciously extended an invitation to join the Arctic WikiProject. The Arctic WikiProject is a fairly new WikiProject. We are a group of editors who are dedicated to creating, revising, and expanding articles, lists, categories, and Wikiprojects that relate with the Arctic.

We look forward to welcoming you to the project!

good luck with them. But please try to find a secondary reference--some of the books on the legends involved should discuss them.DGG (talk) 03:08, 4 January 2009 (UTC)


I am trying to track down the constitution of Franceville to verify claims about it being the first independent state with universal suffrage. You seem to be the source of most of the Franceville information. Do you know where a copy of the constitution might be? Lalli999 (talk) 22:35, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your reply. I am heading the WPHC archives next month, in part to try to track down more on Franceville. Am anglophone so am struggling on the French documents side. In one of your early edits of the Franceville info on the Vanuatu history page you said that Franceville had been granted a charter of independence by France. I don't suppose you have a source for this? Lalli999 (talk) 04:59, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Regicides of Charles I[edit]

I noticed that you edited List of regicides of Charles I. You might be interested to know that I am working through a list of article with copy left problems (see User:Philip Baird Shearer/BCWs copyright issues). In most cases if I can find an entry in User:Magnus Manske/Dictionary of National Biography (source) I am using that to re-populate the article but we also have a OCR version of the full article on Wikisource that can be copied (copyright expired) to create a full article as has been done for example George Fleetwood (regicide) see Dictionary of National Biography, Volume 19 Page 271 (Fleetwood) or in the case of Isaac Ewer there is a full version checked on Wikisource:Ewer, Isaac (DNB00) that was used as the source.

Before I discovered this rich source of information, I found another source for the Regicides, and although it is biased against them and uses "f" for "s" it is useful as a source "The lives of the English regicides: and other commissioners of the pretended High court of justice, appointed to sit in judgement upon their sovereign, King Charles the First" Volume II, by Mark Noble (1798), page 301-305 for Robert Wallop.

Any help you could provide filling in the dots would be appreciated. -- PBS (talk) 09:40, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Middle Earth Places.[edit]

There is already a middle earth place template. Please use this instead of the fictional country one. Please see Gondor for an example. Carl Sixsmith (talk) 07:11, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello again :-) The country box does allow flags, but to my knowledge there are no original flags out there, therefore any flag added would only be either o/r fan cruft or taken from an adaptation; and as per WP:ME consensus we try to avoid specific adaptation related material exception for the adaptation section. (for example loads of movie fan boys would have us think that frodo looks like Elijah Wood). Carl Sixsmith (talk) 07:42, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I wonder how much trouble it would be to alter the ME-place template. Carl Sixsmith (talk) 11:24, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Hello. In this discussion at WikiProject Middle-earth it was decided that we don't want too much in-universe facts in infoboxes on ME articles, so let's better represent the flags and coats of arms in the article proper. De728631 (talk) 12:22, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Wrangel Island known to Chukchi[edit]

Not to knock A Dream in Polar Fog (of which I've only read parts) but it as a historical novel, not a work of history and so probably should not qualify as a source. Also its setting is after the 19th century landings and contemporaneous with or after Bartlet and Kakatovik's ice crossing. Incidentally, Bartlet records that Kakatovik was very aware of a tradition among his people of enmity with the coastal Chukchi, perhaps a further bit of evidence for Krauss's argument.

Please click HERE to take part.
Many thanks in advance for providing this essential feedback.

You are receiving this invitation because you have patrolled new pages. For more information, please see NPP Survey

Multimedia templates[edit]

Thanks for your help this week with the multimedia templates such as Template:Odyssey navbox, Template:The Time Machine, and Template:One Thousand and One Nights. I need a lot more help with these templates, which seem to be up your alley. I created almost 200 of them in the last few months, which are listed at User:TonyTheTiger/creations (see multimedia works towards the bottom of my templates section). I have not carefully selected the categories. In some instances, I may have copied the formatting of a template from a drama to a comedy or one with a novel that was the source to one derived from a play. I need help going through these. I also had problems deciding whether a lot of categories should be added. If it has a variety of adaptations do we need categories for films, tv shows, operas, ballets, video games, plays, musicals, animated cartoons, sequels, etc. Similarly, most of the talk pages remain uncreated. Should we include template tags for projects such as FILM, COMEDY, NOVELS, LITERATURE, SCREENWRITING, OPERA, BALLET, THEATRE, MUSICAL THEATRE, VIDEO GAMES, ETC. I think they all should be tagged with WP:WFs tag plus a few of these.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 10:02, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Use of derviative works templates[edit]

As the creator of {{The Pickwick Papers}}, I thought you might be interested in the discussion about the use of derivative works templates in author bio articles at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels#Derivative works and cultural references templates.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 14:47, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

As the leading editor in terms of edit count of {{The Adventures of Tom Sawyer}}, I am alerting you to the discussion about the use of derivative works templates in author bio articles at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Novels#Derivative works and cultural references templates. We are discussing whether they should be removed from or collapsed or left alone in the author's articles.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 23:49, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (File:Giddy.goat.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Giddy.goat.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 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 '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 all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:17, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

I am sorry, but fail to see how Indonesia/Dutch East Indies - normally as South East Asia, can be considered in its entirity to be in Oceania? Any rationale for that inclusion? satusuro 09:37, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Neither Phillipines or Dutch East Indies in the colonial era can be considered what is the generally accepted scope of Oceania - - stretching the scope to no benefit for the reader - only confusing the issue... satusuro 09:43, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
if only it was that simple. often in texts in the 1700s to even 1940s the east indies can apply to spanish, dutch, british possessions in that era and area (Dutch east indies etc...).

current specificities Oceania doesnt touch Indonesia, and confined to New Guinea at furthest... current specificities Southeast Asia contains Indonesia and Philipines

oceania is a recent term 1830s + Pacific bit older early 1600s,

oceania in the oed = islands of the pacific and adjacent seas.... I have endless arguments in the years past about whether any of the seas within Indonesia/NEI are in fact linked to the Pacific or Indian... what a time waster that was

It could be argued endlessly like the Australasian and Malay peninsula arguments of old, whether the wallace line is a better point of separation, or the international maritime organisation determinations....

For simplicity, brevity and saving time and space I would suggest that Oceania is, limited strictly, and the rest is south east asia. But it is a suggestion alone, and it seems for some it would be red rags to a bull, vast amounts of blah blah filling talk pages everywhere.... In the end, a simple oceania, would be my preference...but then, who am i to say?

I do not think dutch east indies should be included in oceania because of dutch west papua... it is a small part and imho should not be used as an excuse to add the larger entity satusuro 15:20, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Listing categories for discussion[edit]

Hi, when you nominated the categories of Muslim communities by continent/country for discussion at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 August 5, you tagged all the sub-category pages correctly, but did not list them at the CFD discussion page. When you nominate multiple categories, you have to (i) start the nomination with one of the categories and save the page, then (ii) edit the discussion to manually add the others.

Note that I have relisted the discussions and done this for you today at Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2014 November 8. You may wish to comment there. – Fayenatic London 17:47, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
