It's for you-hoooo![edit]

Good evening. hellllllllpppppp mmmmeeeeeee. <g> If you'd be willing, please, to have a quick look I'd be most grateful. Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 23:57, 14 January 2017 (UTC) Cheers! Have replied, see what you think. Hchc2009 (talk) 08:29, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

I've replied over there: thank you so much for this. Also for your very kind comments on my editing attempts ... DC is a bit of a labour of love for me ... I've been hanging around the article longer than you'd think and hanging around the building, on and off, a lot longer than that! Unfortunately I have only enthusiasm rather than specialist skills or knowledge, but it has been lovely to watch the article improve. It wasn't always quite this comprehensive. Thanks again for your sterling work and kind reply. Best wishes DBaK (talk) 19:50, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Spalding[edit]

Hello! Can I impose on you to revisit Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Spalding War Memorial/archive1 when you have time? As you've seen, some bits have moved around but it's essentially the same article it was when you made your first pass. Thanks very much, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 14:13, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Done! Hchc2009 (talk) 08:42, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I think I've mostly addressed your concerns. Could you check back? Cheers, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:01, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Reverting to Previous Edit on New Page[edit]

Hi, I wanted to get your thoughts on an edit I just did that reverted a minor edit of yours in 2015. The page for National World War I Museum and Memorial has just expanded, and I thought a list of museum features was more appropriate again than it had been when you converted it to a standard paragraph in the shorter article. (A lesser part of that edit was removing the mention of the cafe, and I reinstated that because I personally find it helpful to know if there is "food on site" when I visit a new place.) Because it was your edit originally, I wanted to give you an opportunity to veto mine. What do you think? Museum Features | RM2KX (talk) 01:34, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Acatry[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if you, Aymatth2, Ealdgyth, KJP1 or Charles Matthews think such an article could be written. I believe it was a place in a castle where they would store goods bought for the king. Wiktionary entry.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:43, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

The Wiktionary entry is clearly not enough. [1] explains its workings in 17th century England, though a bit lacking in context. Also, as in "office", it is unclear there whether the job or the place was the main meaning. The OED is more helpful, with the variant spelling "acatery" for the room. The root is the same as French acheter, so the catering agent job is the primary meaning, really. Charles Matthews (talk) 13:00, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
I think something could be written, probably discussing both the term as a place and a court position/department... Hchc2009 (talk) 07:58, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
Comment: I was fascinated by this, having never knowingly encountered this word before. The OED quotations to support it are great, though they do seem much more inclined to reinforce its being an office or department rather than an actual place/room/building/thang. I'm not sure if it's helpful or just muddying to say that a quick check on the English Heritage and National Trust sites didn't find it used (likewise the LandmarkTrust but hey) or at least not in this spelling. I also loved the connection - obvious once a helpful person has pointed it out! - with acheter. So I guess I am saying that I wish I had something to contribute, but will watch with interest to see what happens next. :) Best to all, DBaK (talk) 14:15, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Monnow Bridge[edit]

Glad you liked the additions to Goodrich Court. One day, there's a lot more to do there. I've been meaning to ask if you'd have a look at Monnow Bridge sometime. I've been working on it with a view to GA/FA further down the line. If you have the inclination, anything from passing comments to a GA review would be very much appreciated. I'm waiting for the, rather slow, National Library of Wales, to confirm whether or not they have Mary Ellen Bagnall-Oakeley's Monnow Bridge Tower - I can't find it anywhere else - but other than that, I think I've covered such sources as there are. Hopefully, you'll find it an interesting read but I quite understand if you have other articles on your plate. Best regards. KJP1 (talk) 18:08, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Yobot blocks[edit]

Not all of Yobot's blocks are related to trivial changes so the number of 19 is completely inaccurate when it comes to the specific BRFA. Please check your data before leaving messages or correct your comment. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 14:11, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

GA review[edit]

Hello, do you plan to continue reviewing the article? Bertdrunk (talk) 00:08, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Apologies for the delay, I've been travelling. Yes, I've got some time put aside tomorrow to finish it off... Hchc2009 (talk) 20:44, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Alright, thx. Bertdrunk (talk) 21:27, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
Thx for your time. Best regards, Bertdrunk (talk) 06:21, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

Invitation.[edit]

I have noted, that you have contributed to the good Wikipedia article Courage, therefore, as a participant of the WikiProject Wikipedia Awards, I’m inviting you to have a look at the page Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Wikipedia Awards https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Wikipedia_Awards.

As this project currently regarded as semi-active, and not visited by many Wikipedians, it makes sense to invite Editors, who contributed right to the field, for which new Barnstar have been created.

The Editor Dennis Pietras offered the idea to create the Bravery Barnstar, and I did my best to help with design of this, as I think much needed Barnstar; thus if you will appreciate both, the idea and the design, please, let other Editors know about that by writing words of support. Regards.Chris Oxford (talk) 21:48, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Template maintenance[edit]

Hi and sorry to bother you. Thanks for the thanks, if you see what I mean, on Skipsea Castle ... and what a nice article and an interesting-sounding place! I am going to have to go and have a look if I'm ever over that way.

Now, may I please ask for your help a little? The reason I edited Skipsea was that I had stumbled across [[Category:Historic England citations needing attention]] with four items in it, and I thought it might be nice/fun/interesting/educational/whatever to try to empty it. The first three were reasonably easy but I am stuck with All Saints' Church, Shuart. Please don't tell me the answer as I am very keen to learn to do it myself (fish, bloke, line etc) but could you please hint a bit at what it might be? The category tells me the sort of thing that might be wrong but not where it is. I'm perfectly prepared to go through the article line by line if I must, but I was wondering if there is not a better approach, or some tool I should use, or - well, anything really!

Please don't rush to reply as it is hardly urgent, but I'd be most interested to know if there is a particular direction in which I should be looking! Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 20:33, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

It seems to have been sorted already, thanks. I still don't quite get it but hope to pick some wisdom up along the way. Cheers DBaK (talk) 22:21, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
I'm no expert on templates! ;) Looking at the Church one, definitely worth looking up how the "mode" function works, and its historical relationship to the old "postscript" box - that's the key to understanding Nortonius's changes. Hchc2009 (talk) 08:19, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Many thanks - I will have a careful look at this. Best wishes DBaK (talk) 20:56, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Nova / Novia Scotia[edit]

Please ignore my previous waffling here - I have taken it to the Dunstanburgh talk page - do pop in!! Cheers DBaK (talk) 17:45, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Manchester Cenotaph & Monnow Bridge[edit]

Appreciated. It would be good to give Sir Edwin a suitable page. And I am going to pester you again re. Monnow Bridge. I've one more source to check and then I'll push it to FAC. I would really appreciate your input at that stage. All the best. KJP1 (talk) 18:23, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Wow, great, well done! Another one I will have to go and look at now - it sounds wonderful. (I'm just a sneeze or two away from Dunstanburgh right now; hoping to see Aydon, Prudhoe and Tynemouth, or maybe some subset thereof, tomorrow.) Cheers DBaK (talk) 21:52, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Dear Hchc2009, First off, many thanks indeed for the very detailed review comments. Second, I hope I've addressed them all but do shout if I haven't. How have I spent 10 years on here without knowing one could edit web-references? Lastly, you'll see three queries. Obviously, very happy to discuss. Glad you liked the article; it is a interesting bridge, and I've fond memories of it from a long way back. Sincere thanks and all the best. KJP1 (talk) 15:27, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Chartwell[edit]

Afternoon Hchc2009, hoping this note finds you well. I've been messing around with the above, which I think has possibilities. It certainly deserves more than a Start Class article. Any chance you'd be able to draw up a couple of floor plans? They can be found at the end of this article [3], although I fear the author's not respected the National Trust's copyright, as they certainly come from the NT guide. Simplified plans of the ground and first floors would be a great addition to the article, if they can be accomplished, without unduly infringing on your time or the NT's copyright! Best regards. KJP1 (talk) 17:20, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

Yep, should be doable. Will try to run something up over the next couple of days. Hchc2009 (talk) 11:48, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Very much appreciated. Absolutely no rush at all. Many thanks. KJP1 (talk) 15:59, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
Almost done - just trying to get the finish right... Hchc2009 (talk) 16:30, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Okay, have gone for a slightly stylised, isomorphic projection; see what you think. We can label them up pretty easily if desired. Hchc2009 (talk) 06:35, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks Hchc - it looks great. I think it would help to label the key rooms - say the Drawing Room and Library on the ground floor, and Lady Churchill's Bedroom, the Study, and WSC's Bedroom (beyond the Study) on the first. What do you think? KJP1 (talk) 07:51, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Done, and added to the article. Hchc2009 (talk) 19:17, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
And excellent it looks too, and very helpful to the reader. Many thanks indeed. KJP1 (talk) 19:21, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Attribution[edit]

Hey, I hate to nag, but at Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Germanicus, you said "File:Germania 10-12 Tiberio png.PNG and similar - appears to have been based on another geographical map, but no attribution / licence given in the files." How do I find out what map it's based on in order to apply attribution? SpartaN (talk) 00:17, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

It can be a bit tricky, to be honest, depending on the age of the file. If the original editor is still active, you could try contacting them, or search their other maps, and see if they gave any details on another file (standards have improved over time, so sometimes attribution is provided on newer works). Otherwise you're probably back to trying to spot a likely Commons map, or trying one of the map projects and see if anyone recognises the underlying base file. Hchc2009 (talk) 07:21, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
The user, User:Cristiano64, says it's based on many historical maps and atlases. He makes images all the time and the images all say he's the creator. If these images are merely inspired by other images then the attribution would need to be to him, which is already done on the file pages. Note: this is my first time dealing with licencing for files, so I might just not understand. Sorry I keep bugging you. SpartaN (talk) 04:48, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
