Please, don't ask me to come back this time. I've made some wonderful friends here @ WP, but my time here has served its course. It's been wonderful to know you all. Adieu. -- Jack1755 (talk) 20:18, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

It was cool having ya around. GoodDay (talk) 20:30, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
We'll miss you, Jack! It was great working with you and having you on Wikipedia! It was a pleasure knowing you! Laurinavicius (talk) 21:44, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
I'll miss you as well, Jack. Take care and good luck. You were one of the shining lights at Wikipedia.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:07, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
That is sad, I thought your articles were excellent pieces on a neglected area of the encyclopedia. Good luck with whatever else you do with your free time! --Jackyd101 (talk) 23:47, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

GA nominations[edit]

If you are retiring, could you please remove your two nominations at WP:GAN#ROYAL or find someone willing to take charge in your place so that reviewers don't spend time reviewing an article that is unlikely to be picked up by someone else? Cheers, Nev1 (talk) 01:23, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey, welcome back!!!!![edit]

It's great to see you back. A hundred thousand welcomes (Sorry I'm unable to say this in Irish).--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 19:02, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey! You caught on fast, didn't you ;)? LOL. Thanks, Jeanne! -- Jack1755 (talk) 19:13, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. What do you think of my latest. Joan Fitzgerald, Countess of Ormond?--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 19:51, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Les vacances sont terminées, maintenant, au travail ! (Je savais que tu reviendrais.) Frania W. (talk) 00:49, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for correcting the article.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 09:07, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Frania! -- Jack1755 (talk) 12:33, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Welcome Back![edit]

Hey Jack! I'm glad to see that you're back editing again! Happy editing! Laurinavicius (talk) 21:37, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello Jack! Welcome back to wikipedia. Wanna hear a PCD update?--David (talk) 19:42, 17 January 2010 (UTC) Hey guys! Thanks for your warm greetings! :). I'm back for good this time, I promise! I'm sorry I abruptely stormed out--twice. Sure, David, reveal all! -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:11, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

They've sorta fallen out. According to Kim, Nicole wants her and Melody sacked because they stood up to her. Kim, Melody, Jess and Ashley have thought about leaving the group and forming and rival band. I support them in doing this because Nicole will just carry on stepping all over them, thank God Lewis Hamilton ended it with her! There are more details on mu talk page supplied by lilunique--David (talk) 16:31, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Need Some Help![edit]

Hi Jack, i'm Nirvaan from India. I was the one who created Violante Beatrix of Bavaria, the article which you so beautifully edited. I'm grateful. If you don't mind, i'd like you to help me with one other article:

  • Descendants of Phillipe I of France, Duke of Orleans - this article is my pride...:) so are others, but this is one article i enjoyed making. I have detailed the descendants from his first wife, Henrietta Anne Stuart, but i'm not getting time to add the descendants of his second wife.... I would really be glad if you finished a bit of it for me...

Thanking you, and hoping for a lasting collaboration with you here on Wikipedia.

-Nirvaan (talk) 4:24, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh, Nirvaan that sounds like a good article. I've always been interested in Henrietta Anne's descendants seeing as they, according to primogeniture, came before the descendants of Elizabeth of Bohemia in the English line of succession.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 13:17, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Jeanne! and you know whats more interesting, is that the Jacobites have used her descendants as rival claimants to the British throne, when actually, descendants of The Young pretender have been discovered. This Polish Artist, Peter Pininski claims to be Bonnie Prince Charlie's direct descendant, and his evidence is very convincing, as he didn't claim any throne or claim any ancestry, he just bumped into Bonnie Prince Charlie in his Family tree.... Must be thrilling to be descended from such a romantic figure! And as for Henrietta's descendants, they range from the obscure - like Max, Prince of Bavaria - to the famous - Juan Carlos of Spain! Genealogy of royal families often throws many surprises at you!
Yes, like actress Brooke Shields is a descendant of both Lucrezia Borgia and Catherine de Medici!!!!--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 17:36, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh by the way, Brooke Shields is also a descendant of Pope Julius II, I found out a week back!! She descends from his daughter, Felice della Rovere. Oh and i also found out that Celine Dion and Ivan the terrible are related! crazy huh!

And since you are so interested in the Stuarts, i'd like you to see some sites regarding them. The first one is ridiculous, and by far the worst conspiracy theory i've read till date! But it's worth a see.....the second one is more interesting as it claims that the current Jacobite Claimant to the British throne is Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II herself! the third one is about Peter Pininski and his descent from Bonnie Prince Charlie.....

-Nirvaan (talk) 10:48, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Sure, Nirvaan! I'd love to help. What would you like me to do? Just Liselotte's descendants? -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:14, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes just Liselotte's descendants. Also if you could stress on the genealogy of both his wives and how they were related {ironically they were..:)}. Do it in the format that i've used for Henrietta Anne's descent. Thanks again!

Talk:Gian Gastone de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany/GA1[edit]

Hey. Just noting you of this; let me know when the issues are handled, not much to fix. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 18:05, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Noticed you were back[edit]

We've never "met", but I've taken notice of your many creations and edits. It is good to see you are back editing/creating. --Kansas Bear (talk) 22:24, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, Kansas Bear! That's very nice of you to drop in. :D -- Jack1755 (talk) 22:25, 26 January 2010 (UTC)


Jack, I have commented on the Anna Maria Luisa de Medici FAC page. It's clearly a case of communication breakdown on the part of the reviewers.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 15:56, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

I really don't understand why Brian didn't air these issues in the first review! Besides, Oxford A-Z of Grammar and Punctuation proves him stone-cold wrong. It's all very confusing: too flord, not florid enough. He claims to be a magazine editor on his talk page. TBH, I'd rather preserve my version of the artilce, not tailor it to the reviewers' caprices. -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:01, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
As I said on the FAC page, it needs more reviewers who aren't bewildered by British English expressions and words such as "she fell pregnant", "scion", "bequeathed", etc.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 16:07, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Not to rain on your parade, Jeanne, but I think Brian is a British "college lecturer, bibliophile and occasional magazine editor." -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:12, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh dear, I think I made what is known in French as a faux pas!!!!--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 16:14, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
LOL. -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:17, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Lady Elizabeth Mortimer[edit]

Oh Jack, before I put the coal on the grill for the sausages, could you please take a look at my latest article? Thanks.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 18:09, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Sure! -- Jack1755 (talk) 18:10, 27 January 2010 (UTC)


Hi Jack how are you? Do you know that Jessica Sutta has left the Dolls, she said she's not spoken to Nicole in ages. I wonder how many more will leave before the third album--David (talk) 16:25, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

I heard! Did you hear that she's homeless, too? XD -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:55, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Somehow I doubt that she'll be living on skid row with the winos and derelicts. LOL!--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 16:59, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
She said she had "nowhere to live" on E! News Saturday. -- Jack1755 (talk) 17:04, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
The Pussycat Dolls have (had?) an unusual contract with their record label, Interscope, that makes them salaried employees. -- Jack1755 (talk) 18:34, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Have you seen Kim's new hair! She said the blonde bleach was irritating her scalp so she's gone for brunette. If Ashley, Melody or both leave I won't buy the new album, it'll be rubbush. What about Jedward's new single, my dad went mad today when we heard it on the radio most people from my area of the UK dislike them. Owl City to stay at the top! (at least until this Haiti charity single is out next week)--David (talk) 20:35, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Jedward don't have staying power. Will people buy an album full of corny cover-versions? No. Have you been watching "Got to Dance", David? -- Jack1755 (talk) 21:12, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
No, its a cheap, nasty show. I could only watch it on the tv downstairs and my parents have custardy of that and they're not fussed about talent shows. Kim maybe doing X Factor, I think she should and give Cheryl Cole a run for her money. The Brits are on soon, I've been voting--David (talk) 16:06, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Dom Pedro II, Emperor of Brazil[edit]

Hello! I have been working for quite some time by now in Pedro II of Brazil article. I've divided it in several articles (I've just finished Early life of Pedro II of Brazil) that goes from his birth to the the period beyond his death. The problem is that I am only one and can't do everything by myself. I've been trying to write on articles related to the Empire of Brazil (Honório Carneiro Leão, Marquis of Paraná, Afonso, Prince Imperial of Brazil, Platine War, etc...) but I could use some help. There is no need at all to know anything about Brazilian history. Do you know could I get some? Thank you very much, --Lecen (talk) 13:48, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Hmm. I might be able to help, Lecen. What do you need me to do? Out of curiosity, how did you find me? LOL -- Jack1755 (talk) 14:41, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
He also sent me the same message, Jack. I suppose we're famous around Wikipedia. LOL!--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 15:28, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Don't you it, Jeanne! ;) -- Jack1755 (talk) 15:46, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack[edit]

I'm back, met up with a flock of sheep who blocked my passage down the street....Ah, country living, so bucolic and quaint.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 17:18, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Maria Carolina of Austria[edit]

Monsieur, i am glad to see that someone is doing a new version of Maria Carolina in the sandbox, its looking great so far! I thought id show you this link, a very useful site if you do not know about it ;) Archduchess Maria Karoline of Austria

Monsieur le Duc LouisPhilippeCharles (talk) 22:12, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Merci beaucoup, Monsieur! I'm gonna have to put Maria Carolina on hold for the next few days. :'( Exams!!! -- Jack1755 (talk) 00:05, 4 February 2010 (UTC)


Was your question on my talk page. Pardonne-moi de ne pas t'avoir répondu plus tôt; ça va bien, et toi? I am happy that you have come out of your "impromptu retirement" as you call it. I knew you'd be back. Pendant ton absence, je voulais t'envoyer un courriel, but I thought that you probably needed space & time to think things over, so I left you alone. How is your school doing, or rather, how are you doing in school? à+ --Frania W. (talk) 05:48, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

BTW, how many times do I have to tell you that I am not a singer!

Lol. I'm clearly in denial! At the moment, I'm doing my pre-Junior Certificate Exams, which, frankly, are pretty easy. -- Jack1755 (talk) 12:31, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh hi Jack. Nice to see you back at Wikipediaville. And hello to you as well, Frania!--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 15:09, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
How are you this fine spring day, Jeanne? -- Jack1755 (talk) 15:10, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, the day was sunny; however, angry-looking black clouds are rumbling across the sky in a predatory fashion.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 16:44, 6 February 2010 (UTC)


Well there our #2, maybe it was for the best. Will the Haiti single be charting or is it just to raise money?--David (talk) 19:10, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Where have you been lately, Jack?--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 17:17, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

King of Ireland?[edit]

Hiya Jack, I was just curious, since you're a monarchist, who would you have to be King of Ireland if you could choose? I read somewhere that De Valera offered to make the head of the O'Briens Prince-President but they turned him down. Although they're descended from Brian Boru, I think they're Anglicans and after they sided with the Parliamentarians during the Confederate Wars they shouldn't be allowed to ever be king. The O'Neills are probably the best bet historically and in terms of legitimacy. - Yorkshirian (talk) 07:22, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I believe the current head of the Kavanagh family is the rightful heir to the throne of Ireland. He descends in the male line from Dermot MacMurrough.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:26, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Yorkshirian, what does being Anglican or Catholic have to do with the line of succession? Remember it was the Roman Catholic pope who issued the Papal Bull in 1154 giving the English king the green light to invade Ireland, so as to bring the Celtic Church under the domination of the Roman. Besides, there are Anglican O'Neills as well, such as Northern Ireland's former PM, Terence O'Neill.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 12:52, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, I'm guessing the majority of the populance there would never be persuaded into accepting an Anglican monarch again, even on a purely aesthetic constitutional level (which naturally is much better than the republican system). Its bad enough that the Fenian Societies (initated by Protestant and Deist settlers at that) have brainwashed the general populance into believing that "monarchy = Brit thing = bad". The O'Neills as well as having several High Kings of Ireland, are probably the most high profile and "Irish" of the Gaelic royal houses (the O'Briens have pretty much assimilated into the English nobility). Hugh Ó Neill, 2nd Earl of Tyrone, Owen Roe O'Neill and Hugh Dubh O'Neill are well within nationalist historiography (OK I admit, I like the historical Habsburg connection too).
Disagree regarding the "Celtic Church" though, no such thing ever existed outside of "Reformation" propaganda. The early Irish Christians certainly considered themselves Catholic and before the Normans even came there were Cistercians reforming the Church in Ireland. Take for instance Kilmihil—this was named so by Saint Senan in the 5th century, after he had visited Rome and learned about Pope Gelasius I' apparition of the Archangel Michael. - Yorkshirian (talk) 14:14, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Of course if we wished to be truly historically accurate, we would have to seek a pre-Christian monarch, preferably a Druid, seeing as Christianity is-and we may as well calmly face it-a Middle-Eastern import, albeit Judeo-Christianity has served as a defining point for the last 2,000 years of European civilisation.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 14:37, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Someday, Ireland will have a republican next-door, the United Republic of Great Britain and Norther Ireland. GoodDay (talk) 15:14, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
I believe a united Ireland will occur well before that date.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 16:25, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
I'd be all in favour of a United Commonwealth of Great Britain and Ireland, with a Lord Protector as Head of State. Hey, Jeanne, is there a living descendant of the great Oliver Cromwell who might fit the bill?. Irvine22 (talk) 21:28, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Paisley? Haha. In all seriousness, it seems likely that the Jacobins were directly inspired by Satan to create the modern republican system. Canada has a far more honourable founding than the US, GoodDay, be proud of it! One founded by men strongly attached to their roots across the water, their monarch and their high culture. The other by a group of masonic rebels!
The Venetian Republic with a Doge had its moments I suppose... aside from that Savonarola's Florence, a theocracy, seems to be the only respectable, dignified, masculine example. Where is Jack by the way? We have stolen his page. - Yorkshirian (talk) 01:02, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
I believe our Jack is on holiday. I'm sure there are plenty of Cromwell descendants lurking about. However, one can never tell if they have inherited the repressive tyranny of Old Ironsides or the incompetence of Tumbledown Dick (There's something Freudian behind that nickname, surely). Yorkshirian, I'm sure that you'll appreciate the sublime irony in the fact that I, an American descendant of a long line (maternal only) of Freemasons and soldiers of the revolution (US), am a staunch monarchist; while GoodDay, a Canadian, is an outspoken and confirmed republican. Now what do you say about that?--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:22, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
Hey, Yorkshirian. I'll reply ASAP because, at the moment, I'm in Florence. There've been an awful lot of mishaps thus far! Including a train strike...and a lost afternoon tea reservation at the Ritz...and...well...I don't have time to mention the rest. Have a great day everyone! -- Jack1755 (talk) 17:05, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Oh, you're still in Florence. Train strike-ha, welcome to Italia! Remember your problem with scion, well I'm having the same with due to the fact. LOL. Have fun in Firenze.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 17:13, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Berlusconi can't make the trains run on time Jack? :p Just be glad its not the middle of summer! I think the closest thing to hell on earth ever witnessed, is trying to drive around and out of a packed Napoli during July/August. Yorkshirian (talk) 10:55, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Better than being stuck inside a flat in central Catania during a heat wave without an air conditioner! I personally know people who live in this condition.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 10:59, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Personally, Yorkshirian, I'd have the House of Windsor any-day over the Irish petty monarchs, though, if I had to choose, it would probably be the House of Tyrconnell. -- Jack1755 (talk) 17:31, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Welcome Back![edit]

Hello Jack, I hear you've been to Florence, how was it? Did you visit some Medici sites? Sorry, that was a stupid question since nearly all of Florence is Medici. I guess you missed the Brit awards, very odd this year and a bit boring. Pixie Lott won nothing (shame) Lady Gaga won all three of the awards she was nominated for, she started crying when she won the last one she could hardly speak she was "Speechless". Anyway, welcome back--David (talk) 18:51, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

Jack, did you happen to watch the Sanremo Music Festival on Rai Uno last night? My favourite won, which he deserved. Did you hear all the people hissing and catcalling at Prince Emanuele Filiberto? I personally like him.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:48, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
I know, David! I love Pixie; Turn it Up is great! I'm afraid I didn't, Jeanne. -- Jack1755 (talk) 22:48, 23 February 2010 (UTC)
Have you heard Sugababes' new song? My favourite song at the moment is If We Ever Meet Again by Timberland and Katy Perry--David (talk) 20:22, 25 February 2010 (UTC)
Has Kim left PCD? It wasn't on digital spy but one of those editors who only make about three edits a year to celebrity articles has said she's left. I undid it because the source they used was off that horrid Perez Hilton's website. It's just been done back. But if something isn't mentioned on digital spy then it's usually never happened. Jack, what do you think?--David (talk) 21:46, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry about all this but only Nicole and Melody left now! Ashley announced her departure yesterday, they may as well split to be honest because it'll never be the same--David (talk) 10:25, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
OMG! Really? -- Jack1755 (talk) 13:56, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, to be honest I think Melody's left as well because in an interview last week she refused to say whether she was still a member. I've heard that Melody, Kim, Ashley and Jessica are going to form a rival band, it seems Kim has her heart set on it. I wish them luck but this is becoming even more ridiculous than the Sugababes constant changing line-up--David (talk) 19:33, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Have you seen this [1] she's a joke now!--David (talk) 20:26, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
"It doesn't matter." LOL. DYK that most of the tracks from Doll Domination were supposed to ber on Her Name Is Nicole? -- Jack1755 (talk) 20:35, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

My work on Margaret of Anjou is being trashed on Facebook[edit]

What cheek! I just joined the Margaret of Anjou fan club on Facebook, and guess what they were discussing?! The edits made to her Wikipedia article that were done by me!!!! I replied by saying that the source I used is regarded as being highly scholarly and if they themselves possess equally scholarly sources which contradict my edits, why don't they go onto Wikipedia and fix the errors instead of trashing other people's hard, diligent work such as my own in trying to provide a factually correct and neutral article, not a fan piece.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 14:52, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Duchess of Normandy[edit]

Hello Jack! I removed the succession box for several reasons. First, succession boxes for wives of peers are generally unused now. Furthermore, James held two titles called 'Duke of Normandy': the one granted by Louis XIV in 1660 and the one inherited from his brother. Thus, Mary held two titles called 'Duchess of Normandy'. Since neither of those titles is significant and mentioning only one of them is confusing, I thought that removing the reference to one of them wouldn't hurt. If you consider it important, revert it. Anyway, great job expanding the article! Surtsicna (talk) 22:57, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey, Surtsicna. I know James held the title as the heir of William the Conqueror, but I felt, initially, that Louis XIV's official grant should be included; anyway, seeing as the trend is to discard such boxes, there's no need to revert the edit. Thanks! BTW, how are you? -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:00, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, my birthday is today (tomorrow in your timezone) so I feel awful. My birthday is the worst day in the year to me :( I'm always nervous around my birthday so I end up buying many presents to myself :D What about you? Surtsicna (talk) 23:07, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Hehe. It never hurts to be self-indulgent! ;) I'm OK, just recovering from a bout of food poisoning. -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:21, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Just recovering from food poisoning? That's not as simple as a cold; ask our friend Charles if you don't believe me. But at least you've skipped school for a few days :) Surtsicna (talk) 23:31, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah! The days off were good, though day-time TV is basically comprised The Hills reruns! Working on any articles at the moment? -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:38, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't have time for any big projects right now. Analytical chemistry is consuming most of my time :( I've created a few articles at the Latin Wikipedia, just for fun. Take a look at la:Blanca I (regina Navarrae). Surtsicna (talk) 23:43, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
Cool! It's a shame you don't have free time, Surtsicna; that's wikipedia's loss! I used to study Latin...and I gave up after a year. LOL. It just wasn't for me. Any big news with you, besides your birthday of course, Surtsicna? Are you going to have a party?? -- Jack1755 (talk) 23:51, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
I've got enough time to improve some articles. I'll try to look around for some information about Mary of Modena. You shouldn't have given up Latin. It's really time consuming but being able to read and write in Latin is cool. Anyway, no party here; throwing a party makes me so anxious that it ruins the birthday completely. I'll spend it like any other day. If I recall correctly, your birthday is in Autumn? November perhaps? :) Surtsicna (talk) 13:53, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Have I got an article for you![edit]

Jack, when you have finished Mary of Modena, how about taking on a real gem-Catherine de Medici!!!!! Her article, as it currently stands is good, but it needs expanding with a section dealing with her patronage of Nostrodamus and astrology, as well as her group of female spies, the "Flying Squadron". I can help you edit as I've a good bio on Catherine. What do you say, Jack? Oh, BTW, thanks for pasting the barnstar on my user page.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 11:25, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Elizabeth of Bosnia[edit]

Hi! Remember this? Well... payback time! [I've always wanted to say that :D ] I know she lived 300 years before 1755, but I'd appreciate if you could take a look at Elizabeth of Bosnia article before I nominate it for GA. I want the article about my countrywoman to be as good as possible ;) Thanks, Surtsicna (talk) 22:04, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Interesting article, Jack! I think you'll enjoy working on it. The lead is very good.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:15, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Did I blank that????? If I did, I'm so, so sorry! Seriously. I don't recall that at all; I'm pinning the blame on my atrocious browser, Opera, which is useless but for its handy spell-check feature. :O Anyway, moving on swiftly, I'll look at it for you! -- Jack1755 (talk) 17:39, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Duchess Violante Beatrice of Bavaria?[edit]

Monsieur, Long time no speak =[ Lol! Was wondering, should she not be named Duchess Violante Beatrice of Bavaria like her sister the Dauphine of France as neither of them were Queen consorts..?! Thought I'd ask you as you seem to have a passion for the some what ignored Medici's and their consorts Monsieur le Duc LouisPhilippeCharles (talk) 21:26, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Monsieur le Duc! I really appreciate your asking! :D Yeah, she should be named Duchess Violante Beatrice of Bavaria. I'll let you do the honours! Thanks again, -- Jack1755 (talk) 15:51, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
PS I'm on a semi-wikibreak at the moment: The junior certificate in six weeks! D: I've been meaning to ask you, actually, what endears you so much to the House of Bourbon-Condé? I, too, am fascinated with the court of the roi soleil, so I eagerly await your reply! -- Jack1755 (talk) 15:56, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
Ohh I see! Good luck with that! And tbh, I dont know ha! I just find them absolutely fascinating; They seem to have lived in a dream world of unlimited everything lol! Also, Madame la Grande princesse has been moved =] Monsieur le Duc LouisPhilippeCharles (talk) 13:24, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

I've been busy all day. I was baby-sitting my cousin's 16 months old daughter. Trust me, there aren't many things that are more tiring than a baby who's just learned how to walk nor are there many things more amusing than helping a person make their first steps. How did you spend your day? Surtsicna (talk) 22:14, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Went to town, saw a terrible, terrible movie (Hot Tub Time Machine), dined in Milano's (Also terrible), hacked into a friend's facebook, posted something, friend didn't get the joke, got mad...But at least I managed to get some Raspberry tarts! -- Jack1755 (talk) 22:38, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry[edit]

to see the retired template, Jack. I hope you'll eventually decide to come back to edit at Wikipedia. I had hopes that we could work on the Henrietta Maria of France article together.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 19:58, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Jack! What's the problem? We all miss you here please consider please!--David (talk) 10:13, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello stranger nice to see you again...btw I have an obsession with Lady Gaga now--David (talk) 10:29, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Hello, David! Gaga, eh? I'm more of a Kesha guy. -- Jack1755 (talk) 10:25, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Hmmmm Kesha is ok but it wouldn't suprise me if a video was leaked onto the internet of her snorting something illegal, though I did buy her album the day it came out--David (talk) 14:42, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
Don't call my name, don't call my name, Alejandro, Alejandro......--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 14:44, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
There are pictures of Kesha smeared with a choice body fluid all over the internet, so videos of her substance abuse are least of her worries. :P -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:18, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
Gaga seems to have second thoughts about Alejandro mid-song. Who're Roberto and Fernando? :P -- Jack1755 (talk) 16:18, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
That fails to suprise me :/... hmmmmm I think it's meant to make the song feel more romantic. Gaga's new album is out in January/February cannot wait!--David (talk) 14:53, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
Plus, Kesha is releasing a reloaded version of her album delightfully called Cannibal--David (talk) 14:57, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Right There[edit]

Per WP:NSONG, Singles are notable if they have charted. Because the song in question has not even been released yet, it doesn't qualify for the Notability guidelines. Please leave it as a redirect till the song is published, it charts, and we get more than "It's coming soon" coverage. Hasteur (talk) 18:39, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Um, it satisfies Wikipedia:Notability. The song has received 1) 'significant coverage' (, is 2) 'reliable', has sound secondary sources, and nothing is presumed.
All articles on albums, singles or songs must meet the basic criteria at the notability guidelines, with significant coverage in reliable sources that are independent of the subject. I think this is satisfied, don't you?
"Significant coverage" means that sources address the subject directly in detail, so no original research is needed to extract the content. Significant coverage is more than a trivial mention but it need not be the main topic of the source material.[1]
"Reliable" means sources need editorial integrity to allow verifiable evaluation of notability, per the reliable source guideline. Sources may encompass published works in all forms and media, and in any language. Availability of secondary sources covering the subject is a good test for notability.
"Sources",[2] for notability purposes, should be secondary sources, as those provide the most objective evidence of notability. The number and nature of reliable sources needed varies depending on the depth of coverage and quality of the sources. Multiple sources are generally expected.[3] Multiple publications from the same author or organization are usually regarded as a single source for the purposes of establishing notability.
"Independent of the subject" excludes works produced by those affiliated with the subject including (but not limited to): self-publicity, advertising, self-published material by the subject, autobiographies, press releases, etc.[4]
"Presumed" means that significant coverage in reliable sources establishes a presumption, not a guarantee, that a subject is suitable for inclusion. Editors may reach a consensus that although a topic meets this criterion, it is not appropriate for a stand-alone article. For example, such an article may violate what Wikipedia is not.

-- Jack1755 (talk) 18:49, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

I disagree. WP:GHITS doesn't justify notability. All the hits on that google link are "It's a new single", "Look here for lyrics", "50 Cent worked with her" type coverage. No substantial coverage regarding the song. In addition several of the claimed usages are not Wikipedia level reliable sources. These include the fansites, blogs, and etc. I again reiterate WP:NSONG

Most songs do not rise to notability for an independent article and should redirect to another relevant article, such as for the songwriter, a prominent album or for the artist who prominently performed the song. Songs that have been ranked on national or significant music charts, that have won significant awards or honors or that have been independently released as a recording by several notable artists, bands or groups are probably notable. Notability aside, a separate article on a song is only appropriate when there is enough verifiable material to warrant a reasonably detailed article; articles unlikely ever to grow beyond stubs should be merged to articles about an artist or album.

It would not hurt the article to wait until it had charted and waited past the flurry of "New Music Video" coverage has passed to re-evaluate the single's notability. Hasteur (talk) 18:59, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

God, you're such an asshole. -- Jack1755 (talk) 19:00, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
