Text of message to JSTOR[edit]

This was blocked by their spam filter.

--begins--

English Wikipedia makes many references to Aluka.org (see https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:LinkSearch&limit=500&offset=0&target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aluka.org for a list) - mostly to the African Plants collection.

I have transitioned the relevant specimen pages to plants.jstor.org. The remainder require an understanding of the new naming scheme at the appropriate jstor sites, compared to the naming scheme at aluka.org.

I would be grateful if you could supply me with this information.

Yours sincerely,

Hello![edit]

--Rich_Farmbrough On the backlog page and elsewhere, there is "Accuracy disputes" and "Neutrality disputed". Why isn't it "Accuracy disputed"? Is this an error that needs to be changed?

Thanks! Icememen (talk) 08:33, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Neutrality and accuracy are different. For example "Fred Bloggs was arrested for the murder." might be accurate, but it is not neutral if he was later released, and John Doe was convicted of the murder.
Neutrality requires us to consider wording, order, and undue weight, as well as accuracy.
The following examples are intended to be in increasing order of goodness:
  • "Eva is the greatest[peacock term] contralto of all time."
  • "Eva is considered to be[by whom?] the greatest contralto of all time."
  • "Eva is considered by Rich Farmbrough[undue weight? ] to be the greatest contralto of all time."
  • "Eva has a strong fanbasereliable source 1 and Mr. Well Known Critic described her as 'one of the top contraltos of her day'.reliable source 2 "

But even the last may not be neutral: if there are Well Known Critics that consider Eva a caterwauling banshee, that should be included too.

All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 10:14, 31 May 2016 (UTC).

Hi. Just a reminder that in just over a week at Wikimania there's going to be a cross-Wiki discussion about the systems of control of new pages.

Dump scan[edit]

Resolved

Hi! Maybe I could ask a favor to you? As you had that script for counting word frequency this probably shouldn't take too much time. The basic idea: I want to order templates by number of parser functions, that they use. So basically the script should loop trough all templates (in dump file) and for each template count number of these (have to make text lowercased, because of "#IF:" etc.): "#expr:", "#if:", "#ifeq:", "#iferror:", "#ifexpr:", "#ifexist:", "#rel2abs:", "#switch:", "#time:", "#timel:", "#titleparts:", and then group by parser function name. If script could skip {{#invoke:, then it would be great. The result would be something like

Template        {{#if   123
Template        {{#ifeq 12
Template2       {{#switch       3
...

Clarification: for Latvian Wikipedia, not English Wikipedia. And one additional task (probably can be done in one run). Could you count number of "<ref" for each article? Want to know, which articles have the most refs. I know, that this won't be accurate, but still - it would be interesting to see results. --Edgars2007 (talk/contribs) 08:36, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Nasheed[edit]

Hi Rich Farmbrough, You recently created a lot of Edits on [nasheed] Article and removed a lot of Artists and other details from there. Can you describe it's reason? I'm "Ahmed mac" and I'm a Nasheed Artist as well as an Socializor, i added my name in it few months back but when i searched for it again then i didn't find it. You can search for my name on Google for more information.

Kindly do not remove Valid information from any Article with authentic information. Best Wishes for you ....

Hi Ahmed,
Usually lists of artists only include those notable enough to have a Wikipedia article of their own. This is not a hard-and-fast rule, but it seems appropriate in this case. I do not find news articles or books discussing you.
Generally self published stuff, facebook, twitter, blogs etc., does not count to establish notability.

Featured Picture nomination[edit]

Hi Rich,

Great working you on the SVG Media Viewer!

If I could bother you a second... I submitted my "Tiny Planet" of the Last Supper sculpture in Esino Lario for Featured Picture on the English Wikipedia. If you think it qualifies, could you please support my nomination?

Thanks in advance,
cmɢʟeeτaʟκ 22:53, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

User:cmglee will do so. I will also upload my image of the artwork which does not have the paper and masking tape signs on it, Andy Mabbett also took a sign free image, if you fancy trying to merge the textures from the marble slab.
Did you know there is also an exhibition at Milan Malpensa airport of Da Vinci's Last Supper and "Everelasting" (http://www.continiartuk.com/helidon-xhixhas-everlasting-now-installed-milan-malpensa-airport/).
All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 12:01, 29 June 2016 (UTC).
Thanks, Rich. I didn't notice the signs on the sculpture, but am undecided if they should be artificially removed – after all, it's a record of the scene during the event. I didn't know about the exhibition as I didn't pass through Malpensa. Nice to know anyway... cmɢʟeeτaʟκ 12:05, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Clem Harvey[edit]

Hi. I was wondering if any of the off sources that you provided for Clem Harvey's article provide substantial coverage for him as an actor. I ask because I did some searching and I haven't been able to see how he meets WP:ENTERTAINER or the general notability guidelines, as most coverage I have been able to find has been trivial, and I figured that maybe I'm missing something. Thanks. Canadian Paul 17:14, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Yep, it's hard to find anything about Clem, I was hoping that three is an obituary somewhere (if he's dead) or an article in one of the film magazines. I think he may have had some links to aviation. I'm not sure, though, if Clem Harvey is his real name.
It seems strange, though, to have a red-linked member of Ocean's Eleven.

Mistake?[edit]

I think here you meant false flag not black flag? - Brianhe (talk) 12:46, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Hmm... there seems to be an almost synonymy between false flag operation and black flag operation. Possibly this arose from black operation (and black bag operation) being conflated with false flag operation. Be that as it may, Humpty-Dumpty like, when I say "black flag operation" I specifically mean one that is intended primarily to impugn the party who's flag is being flown, rather than one where the primary purpose is the operation itself, and the flag is simply a way to avoid blame.

DNB biographies[edit]

hi, richard, nice work on the DNB articles.

however, i see you have invented your own style. see also Victorinus_Bythner for another style of citing DNB. you might want to consider: using template:DNB for cut and paste; ignoring the initials which are a wikisource thing; author link is normally to the author wikipedia page, your author linksred, because not all authors have a bio. and the DNB endnotes are shown as endnotes indented after template:cite DNB; you might want to add this category Category:Wikipedia articles incorporating text from the Dictionary of National Biography; don't know why you included the banner at the bottom.

keep in mind there should also be an ODNB article to link to using template:cite ODNB, for example [1] and incorporating these makes good edithathon work for newbies.

Yes I think I can make such a list. Face-smile.svg I took a little look last night, will look in more detail tonight. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 13:06, 26 July 2016 (UTC).

Question[edit]

Hi, I've looked at the instructions but I'm not sure how you could divide an existing stub category into smaller stub categories. Thanks, --Rubbish computer (HALP!: I dropped the bass?) 14:31, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Rubbish computer: First, did you propose it at WP:WSS/P? If so, which category is this? --Redrose64 (talk) 16:45, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
@Redrose64: No, sorry I didn't realise I had to propose it there. Thanks for letting me know, Rubbish computer (HALP!: I dropped the bass?) 16:51, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
There are also some general guidelines I think about the max and min number of stubs in a cat. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 17:19, 28 July 2016 (UTC).
Ok thanks. Rubbish computer (HALP!: I dropped the bass?) 17:48, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

DADS[edit]

Dear Rich,

Thank you for making Wikipedia better.

I reverted a recent edit you made to Template:DADS because apparently the URL of that dictionary has changed yet again. Apparently not enough people understand that, in the words of Tim Berners Lee, cool URIs don't change. --DavidCary (talk) 16:47, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

I agree. We have this problem at RfD sometimes. All the best: Rich Farmbrough, 17:18, 28 July 2016 (UTC).
