Ossultone Hundred[edit]

KB, if you check original sources, you will find that Harringay and Hornsey were used interchangeably. In referring to the manor, the normal appelation was Harringay or Harringhay. The Hornsey version came later, Can you not live with this being represented on the Hundreds page? It is verifiable through ancient documents rather than 19th century history books.

Your comment on the Miidlesex page suggests that you deleted harringay because it was not a historic parish. You are right in that it was never a parish. But you are wrong because hundreds were never based on parishes. They predated them. See the Wiki page on "hundred" for easy reference on this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hjuk (talkcontribs)

In 'Ossulstone Hundred', A History of the County of Middlesex: Volume 6: Friern Barnet, Finchley, Hornsey with Highgate (1980), pp. 1-5, Hornsey rates a mention, but no form of Harringay. Generally, the Victoria County History is regarded as the definitive account of the history of London, because the project is the most heavily peer reviewed historical publication. In respect of the manor of Harringay, I would think (but don't know!) that this is probably a sub-manor of Hornsey. Since the ancient documents aren't to hand, I'd probably go with the Victoria History. There are two criteria on writing history on wikipedia: the first is verifiability (WP:VER) (of which there are many arguments) and the second is no original research (WP:NOR).
Also, you've been editing Haringay and the boro' page - no argument with that, some of it is a definite improvement and I'm glad to see someone having a go at it. I would urge you to look at other writings on settlements in London to a). try to keep to much the same style, b}. endeavour to reference your work in the same style as them, c). not quote websites verbatim, and d). write prose, rather than disconnected sections - it looks like notes at the moment. If you need to experiment, or work something out, then please use your Sandbox - with Wiki you're publishing immediately and that should be at least partially complete. Use the Sign your username button to sign your comments. And if there's anyway I can help, pls feel free to ask. Good luck Kbthompson 21:18, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the e-mail. Those links appear to be managed by session cookies, so aren't accessible to me. I did a quick search through the Nat Archives, and the references I found were to either the house, or a person connected with the house - no major mention of Harringay in another context before the 19th century. While I appreciate you may know your stuff, I remain concerned that this fails both the verifiability (WP:VER) and original research (WP:NOR) tests for the encyclopaedia. The NA only provide documents on payment of a fee, and individual wills, etc. are primary sources - i.e. the definition of original research. cheers Kbthompson 09:12, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Again, thanks for the e-mail. Wiki shys clear of OR because it moves into the area of speculation; the intention is to produce a verifiable reasonable quality encyclopaedia - but not a place to publish primary research. There may be documents in archives, but they remain subject to interpretation, and that's what our friends at Victoria History do, interpret and verify the source material and place it in context.
On Wikipedia you're right that there are in fact "higher" classes of users, they tend to be appointed to these god-like positions through popular acclamation. As you can appreciate, I'm not one. However, I do a bit of work with the WPLondon group trying to standardise and improve the quality of articles about London. Wiki is an open source project, but that doesn't mean there are not rules to help everyone get along that little bit better. I'm sorry if you felt that I decide what's acceptable, I don't, I'm merely trying to help you; left like they are your edits are likely to be reverted by someone who doesn't engage in civilised discussion (yes, it's wiki) ...
Now for a nice cup of tea ... Kbthompson 12:25, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

You might want to look at Rainham, London for an article that is improving towards 'Good Article' status, in particular, the discussions on the talk page indicate what is required in a Good Article. HTH. Kbthompson 13:44, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Again, thanks for the e-mail. Material in the VH is usually acceptable. I do wonder why the original text for the Ossulstone Hundred and Middx articles didn't mention Harringay. Often the position doesn't become clear until you've done a lot of reading around the subject (I often change my mind half-way through a piece of research!) - unfortunately, I'm not an expert on that part of N. London - more an E. Londoner myself, but if you stick it in and reference it, the mob can make their own minds up. You have to be prepared for others heavily editing what you've written - if it's well referenced and follows the format, then that's less likely to happen. Time immemorial just means the reign of Edward I (I think), they lost the records before then! The bishops of London held the manor of Stepney, because they were responsible for garrison and maintenance of the tower. There were extensive lands that came with them. Up that way, tends to be Dean and chapter of St Pauls. Cheers Kbthompson 14:17, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Harringay[edit]

Hi and thanks for your emails. Etymology should go near the begining. I started work on copyediting the article, but decided I needed a break from the screen. We can use Talk:Harringay to discuss changes. 'abcd' refers to multiple use of a single reference, for guidance see: WP:REF. I've also added a welcome message to the top of the page which will make some of the workings of the encyclopedia project a little clearer. MRSCTalk 12:13, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Hi and thanks for your email. See WP:REF. It can't be stressed enough how fundamental this is to the project. If reliable citations cannot be found for things, they should be removed. Books are best, but online sources are also ok. For the Harringay article, something which talks broadly about what kind of commercial center it is might help i.e. large, small, just a single road. The GLA and local councils often produce descriptive information about districts. MRSCTalk 18:34, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Communication[edit]

Hi Hjuk. You've sent me a few emails today regarding the Harringay article. It is usual for almost all communication regarding articles to take place in what is known as the 'article talk space'. This is so other parties can also contribute and there is a record. I have replied to the points you raise in your emails regarding the etymology on Talk:Harringay. Please feel free to add your ideas and comments there. My most immediate concern regarding that section at the moment is that text has been changed to say something other than the citation it is attributed to, and this is not good. Your edits are valued. Use Talk:Harringay to discuss how the article can be improved, and to ensure we do not add problematic text. MRSCTalk 18:45, 31 May 2007 (UTC)


Location of Manor House[edit]

Hi, I noticed you edited Manor House, London. I've never been happy about the inference that Manor House is in Haringey. I've had correspondence with User:Kbthompson about this. User_talk:IsarSteve#Manor_House,

My take on the location is that all to intents and purposes Manor House is in Hackney, It's only the "Park side" of the Junction that lies in Haringey and this side of the Junction is the "dead" side, all three built-up sides of the junction lying in Hackney. --IsarSteve 08:56, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

I like your "style" on the Manor House page.. quite happy with it..--IsarSteve 09:34, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

P.S. I just wanted to thank you for the new photo of Grand Parade on the the Harringay page...

In the late 1950s we lived in the Harringay Gardens area and one day I decided to go and see "what it was like" out there in the big wide world. My journey was ended on the corner of Stanhope Gardens/Grand Parade (Your Image) by a concerned neighbour who took me back home (I was only 4 years old). I like to date my "Wanderlust" back to that moment and my parents also quickly realised that I wasn't going to be a "Home Boy".

I'm really pleased you've "positively" improved the Harringay site and that it isn't all doom, gloom and criminals anymore... --IsarSteve 10:59, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback. It was a bit gritty / grimy before wasn't it. One of my first efforts was to remove the Heroin bit. But it was plonked straight back in. I hope its current treatment satisfies all. I have a few more photos, but assume that if I put on too many the page will be slow to load. I thought you were local from hereabouts today. From yr last msg, sounds like you've moved on? Depending on your age, I guess you've seen some changes, eh! Appreciate your non-pedantic voice of reason amomgst a world of zealous pedants!

hjuk 11:17, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the photos, you might be interested in using a "Gallery" like we use on London Bus routes: See 236 and you're right... Harringay has changed ... it was always a bit "apart" from Tottenham.. back in the dark old days of the 50s early 60s, Shops had "early closing days". Whilst in Tottenham (and Wood Green) it was Thursday, in Harringay it was Wednesday and in the days before everyone had a fridge, Tottenham and Harringay residents considered themselves very lucky to be able to have a possibilty of obtaining fresh food on early closing day. Bah.. it was another world... :o) --IsarSteve 12:10, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Before fridges! Ok I guess that helps me time-locate your memories. Do you have any photos of the area back then?

hjuk 14:20, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Hey... we always had a fridge!! as long as I can remember.. a TV too.. and photos... nah.. only back garden views... :o( shame.. so you can date me from those points... thank you very much  :o) --IsarSteve 14:26, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Crouch End[edit]

Given that you and I seem to be the only ones who ever actually do anything to this page other than add their friends & family to the "residents" section, do you think it would be worth deleting the "Living in Crouch End", "Urban legends" and "Notable appearances" sections? (Ideally, I'd lose the "Residents" section as well, but I suspect that would start a revert war.) None of these sections seem to have a) any sources or b) any possible use to anyone (unless there's someone with a burning urge to know where "Kate Kannibal out of The Priscillas" lives). iridescent 01:30, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm all for it, but probably won't put much time into it myself. I did (overdid?!) Harringay, fiddled with Manor House and a few others. I've been tempted by Hornsey & Crouch End, but I know if I start I'll end up spending far too much time on them.
It was nice see your response to my little rant on the Crouchie talk page. I thought I couldn't be the only one who had such a visceral reaction to such tosh. It's such an odd article as it stands. I have a good idea what sort of people/persons may be driving it and the sort of things that may motivate them, but have little sympathy. It reads more like the sort of entry you'd expect to see on facebook. hjuk 22:39, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Posted it at WP:LONDON to see if anyone has any ideas on how to clean it up before I delete it. As on the article I wrote on Crouch End's evil twin, Broadwater Farm, it is possible to write a valid trivia-and-residents section. Just difficult and probably not worth the effort. iridescent 19:36, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Got a bit carried away this evening and ended up moving things round a bit. I realised that there were in effect 2 famous/notable residnets sections. What's left as info on CE is pretty damn thin. hjuk 02:34, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
If no-one else expands it, I'll add it to my ever-growing to-do list. Expect it to be expanded and rewritten some time around 2012 at the current rate. iridescent 03:04, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
I've tidied it all up a bit, see Talk:Crouch End. I also deleted three of the banners. If I've done so wrongly, feel free to reinstate. - hjuk 14:06, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Irridescent, just wondered what you think of the Crouch Hill page - for me there's no case whatsoever for claiming Crouch Hill is a discrete area. A road, sure, but not a particularly important one. - hjuk 15:48, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
I'm on record as saying that only areas that have a distinct historical/legal boundary such as Muswell Hill, Broadwater Farm, Crouch End etc, should have their own articles (Finsbury Park, London should IMO be booted off for starters). Otherwise, you get endless "this road is really in Stroud Green not Crouch Hill" debates; especially in a place like Crouch Hill that straddles borough boundaries. However, consensus seems to be that those pages that exist should be kept (see the sniping and grumbling over Harringay, back in the WT:LONDON archives). If you want to tidy something that urgently needs tidying, you might want to have a look at Gray's Inn Road, an article most people take one look at and try to pretend doesn't exist. iridescent 17:20, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
ok. I'll resist the Crouch Hill temptation. I looked at the WT:LONDON archives) on Harringay. Did I find the right article? I was expecting from the sense of your entry to find something debating whether Harringay warranted its own page. Couldn't see that - just the ole where are its boundaries dispute. Is there another page/entry?
Also took a look at GI Rd - grief, someone would really hafta wanna, eh.
hjuk 20:20, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

OK, I tried to get the page semi-protected against anonymous edits, but as you can see the request was turned down. I think in future it would be worth issuing warnings to these types of users, by posting {{subst:uw-vandalism1}} on the user's talk page (this is a friendly "Welcome to Wikipedia" message with a suggestion that at least one of the user's recent edits was inappropriate and has been reverted). There is further information on warnings at Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace. I think if we adopt this approach and there is no perceptable decrease in vandalism we'll probably have a better case for semi-protection in the future.--Steve James (talk) 21:32, 1 May 2008 (UTC)


By whom?[edit]

I have reinstated the by whom which you replaced with citation needed since it states more clearly exactly what aspect of the statement in question needs improving. Per Template:Citation needed, Being specific about the nature of the problem will help other editors correct it. Thank you. Longwayround (talk) 10:45, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Harringay[edit]

That style of navigation box isn't really consistent with the normal WP article style. There are several possible approaches.

  • The simplest is the method I've used, with an italicised line at the top of the article pointing to the related article(s).
  • Another approach would be to use a series box: for example:
Part of a series on Harringay
History

History of Harringay (overview)
History of Harringay - Prehistory to 1750
History of Harringay - 1750 to 1880
History of Harringay - 1880 to present


Any other articles on Harringay could be listed in this box too. It could be stored as a template and included in all the related articles.

  • A third approach would be to (mis)use a succession box - these are usually placed at the end of an article though:
HughJLF
Preceded by
History of Harringay - Prehistory to 1750
History of Harringay - 1750 to 1880 Succeeded by
History of Harringay - 1880 to present

Colonies Chris (talk) 17:53, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Chris; most helpful. I like the series box. That looks very useable. I'll pop it in.(Just did so - actually it's more than useable. It's brilliant. Thank you!)
I'm surprised that the nav box I used is verboten because I took it from a featured article on the history of a person's life. I can't remeber who though!
Thanks again for your help.
hjuk (talk) 18:07, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
If you'd prefer not to see the link in the form Article_title#subheading, you could create a redirect to hide it; e.g. what displays would be 'Entertainment in Harringay' and behind the scenes that's defined as a redirect to 'History of Harringay#Entertainment' Colonies Chris (talk) 17:02, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
OK. And how does one create a redirect? hjuk (talk) 17:49, 22 November 2007 (UTC)
Create an article called e.g. 'Entertainment in Harringay' but its only content would be
REDIRECT [[History of Harringay - 1880 to present#Entertainment]]

(you can type this manually or use the #R button on the toolbar for the skeleton) Then just change the entry in the {{main}} template to point to 'Entertainment in Harringay'. Colonies Chris (talk) 11:59, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Ok that's done. But why did it need changing? The way it was done worked fine and was much more straightforward. It would be interseting to know the reason? hjuk (talk) 16:50, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
The {{main}} template, and a number of other useful templates such as {{for}}, {{seealso}}, {{distinguish}}, {{disambig}}, {{lang|xx}} and others, are widely used for the sort of requirements that are common to many articles. Using the template instead of hand-coding ensures consistency of style, and separates the meaning from the presentation. It means that a change to the presentation style can be made with a single change to the template rather than changing perhaps thousands of articles individually, and it allows automated scanners to identify characteristics of articles (particularly important for the likes of disambiguation pages, identified by the presence of the {{disambig}} template, or foreign-language text, identified by the {{lang}} template). Unfortunately the {{main}} template doesn't provide a way to pipe a link in the way that normal links can - the redirect is a workaround for that lack. Mostly the template is used to point directly to another article by title rather than to a subsection within an article, so the problem doesn't often arise. Colonies Chris (talk) 17:19, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for a full and informative answer. What's odd is that the main template page does provide a way for what shows to be other than the destination page, but it doesn't work. Is it fixable? hjuk (talk) 21:47, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
I didn't know the template had that capability. It seems to work OK - for example

Colonies Chris (talk) 14:24, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Well then hopefully we both learned something there then. I think it's badly explained in the template article. In the explnation l1 (letter, number) comes after 10 and looks like 11 (number, number). If the template article cd be changed I think that wd help. It shd also explain that any subsequent appearnce changes are coded l2, l3 etc. Don't know if you're able to facilitate that change.

Thanks again for the help.

hjuk (talk) 20:49, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

Sort categories[edit]

The normal way is to add a word the article must be sorted by, after the category. e.g. [[Category:People from London by district|Holloway, People from]] [[Template:London people message]] does this automatically for London people categories. There is another trick to make all categories sort the same way. That is to add {{DEFAULTSORT:Holloway, People from}} to the article, by convention above the first category. Hope that helps. MRSCTalk 07:44, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Many thanks for the reply MSRC. I had thought it might be [[Template:London people message]] that did it. I tried it on [[Category:People from Haringey by district]] to no avail. Any chance you might take a look and tell me where I'm going wrong? hjuk (talk) 10:22, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
It is sorted now. The extra category syntax in each of the place categories was overriding the categorisation scheme in the template, so just had to be removed to make it work. MRSCTalk 15:10, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Not sure I undertsand what you did - which wd be useful so I can replicate in the future. But thnaks for sorting it. Much appreciated. It's part of my trying to stop some of the pages round here being so focussed on notable people. In overhauling the London Borough of Haringey page to less of disaster, and previously the Crouch End notables section, I'm trying to get the articles' notables sections focussed on just a few key people but making the other notables that people want to reference easy-to-find through the cat links. hjuk (talk) 15:28, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
OK, I can see how you fixed it. Thanks again. hjuk (talk) 16:39, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Municipal Borough of Hornsey[edit]

Hi you might want to add population stats for the Municipal Borough of Hornsey - they are on Vision of Britain - sometimes you have to dig for them. (see: Metropolitan Borough of Hackney for an example). If I had time .... Kbthompson (talk) 10:54, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

But....but.....but....I keep telling myself, just 5 miuns today......I won't......I can't...Is it just me or is this damn thing horribly addictive? It's like the garden. I go out there to snip one branch and come back in 3 hours later.
Thanks for the pointer on the population. Having tidied up the Haringey page somewhat (nothing sparkling, but no logner a disaster I hope), I'd picked up one interesting fact I wanted to add to Hornsey. But then the page didn't make sense...and how does it link with....and before you know it. So I'm sure I won't be able to help myself and I'll dig out those pop stats then. hjuk 11:07, 7 December 2007 (UTC)
Ha, that's how I get caught up in stuff - next you know, you're taking it to GA! With regard to your other problem. Take a look at Template messages; you have to issue a final warning (with previous ones), before taking it to Vandalism reporting. The process is straightforward, but infuriating when you just know the little creep is vandalising, but you have to go through all the levels. HTH, to the question you withdrew ... Kbthompson (talk) 00:59, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Harringay links[edit]

Why did you relink the two boroughs? They're already linked earlier in the same paragraph. Colonies Chris (talk) 18:34, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Sorry Chris, perhaps I'm being dense or am just too tired, but I can't see where they're linked earlier in the same para. They're linked in the picture caption, but not, unless I'm missing it, earlier in the same para. I think it's not overlinking to link in the caption and the para. Thanks again for all the tidying you're doing. It really helps to have someone look over it with a fresh eye. hjuk (talk) 00:12, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
You're right, the links are not really in the same para - at least not in the formatted article. Sorry for the confusion. Colonies Chris (talk) 11:30, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

OGG files[edit]

Hi Hjuk,

Unfortunately Wikipedia doesn't allow sound files to be uploaded in anything other than Ogg Vorbis format, because it is completely open-source, unpatented and free, unlike formats such as mp3. Files in any other format would simply be deleted as a violation. This page and its talk page have some further info. Hassocks5489 (talk) 12:49, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Harringay[edit]

I was reading carefully (about to move to Harringay!) and something seemed wrong. Took a couple of passes to work out what it was though! :) —Danio, Bibliophylax (talk) 23:44, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

The tools ...[edit]

The next step in wikipedia (aka welcome to my world) ... the hopeless vandal. Yes, you can revert them ... but what they really want is Template messages, then they can have a go at you personally. If it's childish, I tend to let it go, but if persistent then follow the procedure, giving them a 1, then a 2, etc. when it gets to 4 you can report them to Vandalism reporting. It will be my absolute pleasure to help. Since he/she's done it multiple time already, I started with a level 2 warning. If it's a one-off, I tend to let them off - unless there's a pattern of vandalism. Kbthompson (talk) 01:11, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Take a look at User talk:77.103.7.209, enough warnings and the IP can go to Vandalism reporting. It's not to be taken lightly, but that's the way to do it. Vandalising a user page is usually enough for an immediate block, but in this case the vandal is not active, so we let it lie until the next time - it's in the history. Kbthompson (talk) 01:21, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh, by the way, thank you for your support. I'm not supposed to WP:CANVAS, so I can't actually say what for! A proper thank you is appropriate when the discussion is closed! Kbthompson (talk) 01:26, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Thanks KBT - much appreciated. I'd never looked at at an RFA page before, but was struck by the level of support vs opposition. I'm sure it's much deserved. Good luck. hjuk (talk) 06:18, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Small query[edit]

Do you know much on Northumberland Park? I finally created the link to the suburb. See Northumberland Park, London. Simply south (talk) 17:09, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. I know where it is, but little else. If you're sounding me out for contributions, I'm probably the wrong guy. If you're interested, I'm in touch with one of the local councillors from that area (an uncommonly decent guy). I can sound him out as to whether he knows someone with the skills and the interest. hjuk (talk) 16:59, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Stroud Green, London[edit]

Thanks for the offer of the picture of the Eel Pie House. Maybe it is quickest if you can upload it direct to the page? Although, that said, I am happy to add it myself from an image link in Wikipedia.

NB. I also left a message to the same effect on the Stroud Green, London discussion page.

Thanks for the picture, duly added. BTW (just to be academic) let me know if you have details of the original, i.e. artist, medium (watercolour?), owner, current location etc. :)) Ucypanp (talk) 19:37, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

About Commons[edit]

Well, Wikimedia Commons is another wiki, just like this one, but is set up as a media repository. Images that are here on the English Wikipedia can only be used here, but images on Commons can be used on any Wikimedia (the organization that owns Wikipedia and its sister projects) wiki, including English Wikipedia as well as German Wikipedia, Spanish Wikipedia, French Wikipedia, English Wiktionary, Portuguese Wikibooks....and so on and so forth. We try to move images over to Commons wherever possible because it's more efficient than each of the projects maintaining their own copy. Also, Commons has their own categorizing system that makes finding images a lot easier. Since it's been transferred, we'll delete the local copy from English Wikipedia, but your image will still be on Wikimedia Commons and will still be able to be used here, so you don't have to worry about anything. I'll look into the categorizing issue — the tool I used to transfer it over to Commons categorized it automatically, so it probably messed up picking a category; I'll go back and correct it. So yeah, don't worry about it, there's not thing wrong with your image, and it won't be completely thrown off Wikipedia, so you needn't take any action. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 22:00, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Harringay Cinemas[edit]

Nothing major, but perhaps a few inline sources (direct quotes rather than paraphrasing) will help assert the claims. I'm not dispute the truth (or the verifiability), just some footnotes may aid the article. The main issue is that the statements cannot necessarily be matched to the sources. In order to verify claims, direct or indirect quotes should be used (the latter of which you have done in places). Cheers. Booglamay (talk) 16:38, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Nice one - no worries! Booglamay (talk) 17:18, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry. I should have put the "citations missing" template, not the "unreferenced" template. I've made the change. Laureapuella (talk) 04:57, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons[edit]

To Commons.svg

Thank you for uploading images/media to Wikipedia! There is, however, another Wikimedia Foundation project called Wikimedia Commons, a central media repository for all free media. In the future, please consider creating an account and uploading your media there instead. That way, all of the other language Wikipedias can use them too, as well as our many sister projects. This will also allow our visitors to search for, view and use our media in one central location. If you wish to move previous uploads to Commons, see Wikipedia:Moving images to the Commons (you may view images you have previously uploaded by going to your user contributions on the left and choosing the 'image' namespace from the drop down box). Please note that non-free content, such as images claimed as fair use, cannot be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons. Help us spread the word about Commons by informing other users, and please continue uploading!--OsamaK 10:37, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


Hello,

I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

Yours,

James F. (talk) 09:27, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Please forgive the slightly impersonal mass-invite!

Oxford Wikimania 2010 and Wikimedia UK v2.0 Notice[edit]

Hi,

As a regularly contributing UK Wikipedian, we were wondering if you wanted to contribute to the Oxford bid to host the 2010 Wikimania conference. Please see here for details of how to get involved, we need all the help we can get if we are to put in a compelling bid.

We are also in the process of forming a new UK Wikimedia chapter to replace the soon to be folded old one. If you are interested in helping shape our plans, showing your support or becoming a future member or board member, please head over to the Wikimedia UK v2.0 page and let us know. We plan on holding an election in the next month to find the initial board, who will oversee the process of founding the company and accepting membership applications. They will then call an AGM to formally elect a new board who after obtaining charitable status will start the fund raising, promotion and active support for the UK Wikimedian community for which the chapter is being founded.

You may also wish to attend the next London meet-up at which both of these issues will be discussed. If you can't attend this meetup, you may want to watch Wikipedia:Meetup, for updates on future meets.

We look forward to hearing from you soon, and we send our apologies for this automated intrusion onto your talk page!

File source problem with File:Ladds Alkrington.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Ladds Alkrington.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 23:35, 14 April 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Radiant chains (talk) 23:35, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for reminding me; meant to go back in and change that. Its by Ladds himself.

AfD nomination of Harringay Online[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated Harringay Online, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Harringay Online. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Please contact me if you're unsure why you received this message. Jenuk1985 | Talk 18:11, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Newington Green Unitarian Church[edit]

Hi there. User:Kbthompson suggested you would be a good person to ask. Would you like to have a look at Newington Green Unitarian Church? It is the first substantial article I've written. And it is about people more than architecture. Many thanks. BrainyBabe (talk) 16:33, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:HoL_4_Wiki.jpg[edit]

Extended content
File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:HoL_4_Wiki.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the GFDL or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

File Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Home & Colonial Logo.jpg. However, it currently is missing information on its copyright status. Wikipedia takes copyright very seriously.

File:Walking in Finsbury Park.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Walking in Finsbury Park.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page. If possible, please add this information. This will help other editors to make better use of the image, and it will be more informative for readers.

If the information is not provided, the image may eventually be proposed for deletion, a situation which is not desirable, and which can easily be avoided.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:15, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
What nonsense. What on earth do you suggest is added? It's someone walking in Finsbury Park, just as the title says. What do you suggest a description needs to add that there are trees and grass?

London Wikimedia Fundraiser[edit]

Good evening! This is a friendly message from Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry, inviting you to the London Wikimedia Fundraising party on 19th December 2010, in approximately one week. This party is being held at an artistic London venue with room for approximately 300 people, and is being funded by Ed Saperia, a non-Wikipedian who has a reputation for holding exclusive events all over London. This year, he wants to help Wikipedia, and is subsidising a charity event for us. We're keen to get as many Wikimedians coming as possible, and we already have approximately 200 guests, including members of the press, and some mystery guests! More details can be found at http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/London - expect an Eigenharp, a mulled wine hot tub, a free hog roast, a haybale amphitheatre and more. If you're interested in coming - and we'd love to have you - please go to the ten.wikipedia page and follow the link to the Facebook event. Signing up on Facebook will add you to the party guestlist. Entry fee is a heavily subsidised £5 and entry is restricted to over 18s. It promises to be a 10th birthday party to remember! If you have any questions, please email me at chasemewiki at gmail.com.

Hope we'll see you there, (and apologies for the talk page spam) - Chase me ladies, I'm the Cavalry (talk) 22:56, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Lol. I also know Maddy and live around the corner. I think it's perfectly fine to refer to the 'Green Lanes area of Haringey', as she lives off Green Lanes, in Haringey. The issue is not 'what locals would call it' but how the terminology communicates itself to readers. Seems very clear to me. Would 'near Green Lanes, Haringey' make you that bit happier?

Haringey redirect[edit]

I know there's confusion, the issue is how best to approach it in terms of disambiguation and/or redirects here. As noted on the talk page, I can't see the benefit of inconveniencing people using the correct spelling while doing nothing that benefits those using the wrong one beyond what is already done with a hatnote (which I also expanded btw). Plus, by the logic deployed, Harringay should also be a two-way disambiguation page. Anyway, I can see you've only made two edits in the past two months prior to now, but if you can revert me within one and a half hours of the edit I guess you can offer a bit more by way of explanation on the talk page fairly promptly too.

File source problem with File:Hornsey High St 1873 sm.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Hornsey High St 1873 sm.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Diannaa (talk) 00:31, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 22[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Duckett's Green, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page West Green. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
