An Article[edit]

I was thinking you might appreciate this article that I created today. Perhaps you might even expand it a bit if you have time? I've included enough sources to write up a decent biography, I just didn't have time today. User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 02:28, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help! Great work! I have nominated the article for DYK, and I have also created the article Silvio Ranieri if you are interested.User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 15:06, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Wow! That cubist Mandolin is amazing, and the story is even more so!User:Maunus ·ʍaunus·snunɐw· 17:19, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. It was a very lucky find. Researchers and that auction house have made this article easier to put together.Jacqke (talk) 17:23, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Earth Abides[edit]

Magnificent job on Earth Abides! Note that TV documentary Aftermath Population Zero has many scenes similar to passages in Earth Abides: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/aftermath/ Pepso2 (talk) 12:57, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Peer review[edit]

Hello, I left a cursory review of Earth Abides, which you added to the Novels WikiProject PR page. You can read my comments [Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/Peer review/Earth Abides here]. Do let me know if you have any questions or comments. María (habla conmigo) 17:50, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

You're very welcome for the review, but I wouldn't sweat the small stuff too much. You're already off to a great start; I'm very impressed that you were able to find that many reliable sources (aside from the Wikipedia articles, that is)! I've found that researching is the easiest part about writing an article; it's the anal retentive attention to Manual of Style details that will kill you. If you ever have five hours to kill, there's always WP:MOS to keep you busy. :) Good luck! María (habla conmigo) 18:10, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Earth abides/La Terre demeure[edit]

Hello Jacqke,

I wrote the short page about "La terre demeure" in the french wikipedia. This few words don't explain the impact this book had on me. The french edition is no more available and I live with its souvenir.

Your version is very extensive and covers many points of view : bravo !


Arnold Shultz[edit]

Hello, do you have any sources for your statement that the fiddle player in the photo that you linked to in the Shultz article ist Clarence Wilson? To my knowledge, the fiddler is believed to be "Uncle Pen" Vandiver. The yodeling cowboy (talk) 14:16, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi, My source for that link is from the book "In the Country of Country" by Nicholas Dawidoff. Dawidoff seems to me a credible researcher who spent a great deal of time researching the origins of Country Music. That being said, I am still pursuing a definitive answer on that, so that the photo can be used on Wikipedia.Jacqke (talk) 15:19, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Draft misplaced in mainspace[edit]

Hello. You placed an article that you said in your edit summary that was supposed to be a personal sandbox, but it was misplaced in the main encyclopedia space. I have moved it back into your userspace for you, it is located at User:Jacqke/draft article on mandores. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:14, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! Never used the sandbox before.Jacqke (talk) 01:19, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, to get a user subpage it must have your username and then This→/← type of slash (I can never remember which is the backslash and which is the forwardslash). Then you can title it whatever you want. So it would be User:Jacqke/insert title here. Again, If you have any questions I am happy to answer them. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 01:41, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

refs[edit]

If you name a reference, you only have to type it once, then just call the ref name after that. Ref's go after punctuation, but I'm sure you knew that being a wikipedia copy editor and all that goes with it. Merry Christmas!--Mike - Μολὼν λαβέ 03:32, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

I have to admit that it has been a long time since I actively copy edited; simple fact is I generally lack the time and tend to get on when I have no sleep and therefore lack a brain. I appreciate your reminders. Merry ChristmasJacqke (talk) 06:40, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Seattle Cartoonists' Club[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Seattle Cartoonists' Club requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 23:14, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Benjamin Brown Martin[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Benjamin Brown Martin has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

All biographies of living people created after March 18, 2010, must have references.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Yasht101 07:50, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Cubist Embergher Mandolin.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that this media item is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails the first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media item could be found or created that provides substantially the same information or which could be adequately covered with text alone. If you believe this media item is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the file description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the file discussion page, write the reason why this media item is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per the non-free content policy. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Fut.Perf. 22:24, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Gittern[edit]

Many thanks! It's taken me a while to get the nerve up to join in the work, I am a bit slow with anything other than Sibelius or Cubase (and I'm not an expert with these either!). Hopefully we can eliminate the speculative theories many reference works tend to repeat as fact and use actual historical source material to expand the early instrument articles.

Apologies - no talk button, haven't figured that out yet Pupsikon 05:09, 10 October 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pupsikon (talkcontribs)

Hi Jacqke, here's a line of thought I would welcome your assistance with. I see articles on the guitar and related stuff which constantly repeat the hoary myth (in my humble opinion) of the Arabic origin for the guitar, gittern, and so forth.

Here's a provisional list of the problems I have with it - I would be grateful for feedback.

1. No actual historical sources - nothing in any documents, letters, etc., from the period to support the theory. Nada absolute. I keep finding a reference to 'guitarra latina' and 'guitarra morisco' with no attributable source or context, so if you know where this comes from (apart from modern encyclopedias trotting out the theory) - it's a good place to investigate further I think..

2. The Cantigas de Santa Maria illustration appearing in articles like the one on the guitar (third one down) to support the idea. There are no captions on the original document to go with the illustrations, and no indications in the text to support the identification of any instruments, let alone the guitar. So it's all guesswork really... I could say the picture in question has an instrument on the right which resembles a gittern and one on the left that resembles a citole. Would I be wrong?

3. The assumption made that no instruments like the gittern existed in Iberia before the Arab conquests just frankly doesn't hold water. Apart from the linguistic evidence (which deserves more attention for a whole number of reasons), it's worth considering what kind of society existed there prior to the invasion.

The fact the 'Iberians' (I'm using the term loosely here to support the line of thought) lacked the military capacity (or even did not wish), to resist the invasion; is no indication of the musical culture existing at the time. I won't waste your time with text here, but if you check out Wiki stuff on the history of the Roman Empire in the Iberian peninsula I think you'll get the picture of my drift here.

There's loads more - if you want to collaborate further please feel free to get back to me. User:Pupsikon Pupsikon 21:03, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for creating List of mandolinists (sorted), Jacqke!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Is there a reason this can't be merged with List of mandolinists? Does Wikipedia need two separate lists of mandolinists?

Classical mandolinists[edit]

To your first question: sure, I don't see why there couldn't be a category dedicated to classical mandolinists. It can certainly be populated.

To your second question: yes, you can paste the newer list over the older one, as long as you're not eliminating any information from the older one. That said, it might be better to do a history merge, which will require administrative oversight - let me know if and when you'd prefer that. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 17:39, 27 September 2015 (UTC)

Tim White-Sobieski Article Nominated for deletion[edit]

Dear Jacqke,

I see that the English Wikipedia page for Tim White Sobieski has been nominated for deletion just today or yesterday. Prior to that, it was in good standing. I changed a few things re: updating links that were no longer valid, changed punctuation, and checked grammar, and it seems due to these changes the page is up for deletion.

Is there any way the page can be removed from this category? What shall I do? Should I revert all the changes back to the way the page originally was?

Thank you so much in advance for your advice and help.

I am an educator and curator, and due to the amount of publications, shows, and press this artist has gotten, I consider his work worthy of being in the encyclopedia.

Thank you again.

@Paulinapaulina3030: I have been annoyed by this before, but I think I understand how to help. Another editor has tagged it for deletion. What that means is it needs to have additional references added to it and be rewritten to make it more "encyclopedic". At an undetermined point, an administrator will review changes (and any arguments we make for importance) and decide to keep or delete it. The good news is that there is a lot of material to use to cite as references. Best are newspapers and books, but museum exhibition catalogs can work and even online websites (these are of the least value to establish notability). There is also the editor Butterbeanne interested in saving the article, a new writer who might have access to good info sources. I will be available off and on to help. If it takes me a while to answer, my life probably is busy, but I will help you. Don't list hope as it can be saved. Idk your experience with Wikipedia, but if you need help with any aspect, especially with the things like how to add references, let me knowJacqke (talk) 18:28, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you Jacqke, I have added 28 other references, and have updated the bibliography with the correct format and as many ISBN numbers as I could find.

Please let me know what else I can do to elevate the status of this page as an educational resource.

Thank you!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Paulinapaulina3030 (talkcontribs) 02:50, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jacqke! sending you some requests and thanks[edit]

I saw that you put some effort for the Rory Gallagher article. THANK YOU! It was on my "to do" list but I got really sick and into a coma, and am learning to walk again; all that stuff.

No hard feelings[edit]

Hopefully no hard feelings over the recent COI Noticeboard I mentioned you in. Though I was conflicted about confronting an established editor with such scant evidence, I thought that it was my role to do so. On a personal note, I fully respect your decision to help an article subject by writing his page, I as believe (and you said) that this will prevent him from seeking out more dubious methods to do so, like paid editing. Furthermore, this whole situation has given me an opportunity to educate myself about Ed Seeman, which I probably never would have done otherwise. Cheers, and I hope we meet again under better circumstances. Keep up the good work.--SamHolt6 (talk) 01:37, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi, Jacqke, I noticed your recent edit to this article. Is there a specific reason why the images are not lined up? Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 13:18, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

You could for example use the <gallery widths="154px" heights="200px" class="center" caption="Altar servers in art"> (like in Altar server), that could make things easier for you. Face-smile.svg Lotje (talk) 13:21, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
@Lotje: Hi Lotje, I have indeed had problem with images in the gallery. They tend to look fine until I add captions. I tried your advice, going even larger on the width. That seems to have helped on the desktop, less on my phone screen. I appreciate your help.Jacqke (talk) 13:47, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Is this Ruan Lingyu?[edit]

Liangyou 029 cover Yan Yuexian.jpg

This person looks nothing like her. Do you have a source? Timmyshin (talk) 18:35, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

According to [1] (p. 122, 138th page) this person is Yan Yuexian which you just created (great job btw). So I'm going to remove this image from the Ruan Lingyu article. Thanks! Timmyshin (talk) 18:42, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Timmyshin, I submit to your judgment. My source had similar feelings about the identification; I got my information for many of these cover images from an enthusiast online, calling himself the Landlord. He was uncomfortable with the identification being Yan Lingyu but said that the magazine identified her as such. "The cover character of the 29th issue of 1928: Yan Lingyu (Liangyou said that it is Yan Lingyu, the landlord feels a bit different) Yan Lingyu (1910.4.26—1935.3.8), formerly known as Feng Fenggen..." Since there is this much uncertainty among sources, it is probably best not to put it in an article until that is cleared up. Should I attach a note to the image mentioning the uncertainty among sources? I should add that the translation software I used made this passage very touchy, even contradicting itself, depending on which characters touched one another.
Thank you for looking in (and I do mean that). I try to fact check as I go, but this one was difficult. BTW that document you linked to is very good. Jacqke (talk) 02:09, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the source. I'm surprised you don't read Chinese! These articles on Chinese silent film stars must be a lot of work for you! Regarding this picture I don't think there's any uncertainty: compare it with the one in Yan Yuexian's article, and the resemblance (at least to me) is too obvious. I knew how Ruan Lingyu looked because I have watched some of her films. (Chinese silent films from the 1930s - at least the ones I watched - couldn't even compare with American films from the late 1910s, but I would recommend Ruan's films. She's no beauty by today's standards, but she's incredible.) Timmyshin (talk) 03:17, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Timmyshin, Editing Chinese wasn't possible for me before Google. I have to be wary of problems caused by translation, but I have enjoyed the process. I try only to go from other languages to English, as I have no way to know if the translation looks good going the other way. I saw that you have been correcting names in the Commons files I added; thank you! Would you mind looking over The Young Companion, which I have been working. I think all the names I added are correctly translated, but...(?)Jacqke (talk) 12:14, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
  • The article looks great! I corrected a couple of names. Only thing is the gallery doesn't exactly line up in my browser. Timmyshin (talk) 16:36, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! You're right, there is a prob with the gallery. I don't think it was meant to have captions. I tried resizing at one point which helped some .Jacqke (talk) 16:41, 3 August 2018 (UTC) That photo you found looks great!Jacqke (talk) 16:42, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Dingjiazha tomb[edit]

Hi Jacqke, thanks for writing Dingjiazha Tomb No. 5, it's a beautiful article! I've moved the article to the current title because "Yanju" is not the name of the tomb's occupant, but is an archaic word meaning "leisurely life", describing the mural in the tomb.

Hi Zanhe, Thank you! I was planning to ask you to look at this, for fear of just that kind of mistake. I included the section of a magazine article in a ref, talking about possible dates this tomb was made. Would you mind looking at that to see if you understand it better than I. This has been a contentious issue, with amateur researchers going back and forth over the possible date of the paintings.

Speedy deletion nomination of Tro che[edit]

Hello Jacqke,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Tro che for deletion, because it doesn't appear to contain any encyclopedic content. Take a look at our suggestions for essential content in short articles to learn what should be included.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.

TomCat4680 (talk) 00:57, 5 October 2018 (UTC) TomCat4680, I appreciate your taking care of that. I was on a role getting information to fill out these Cambodian instrument articles. But I think Google started feeding me lines I was looking for, with the result I don't trust the the picture I was getting about that particular instrument. I am going to throw a copy on my sanbox for now, just in case I find some reliable sourcing.Jacqke (talk) 01:17, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Ways to improve Kong mong[edit]

Hi, I'm SkyGazer 512. Jacqke, thanks for creating Kong mong!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Would you be able to provide some more reliable sources that cover the topic in-depth?

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

SkyGazer 512 Oh no, what did I do this time? 17:13, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

SkyGazer 512 Hi, I appreciate your looking at the article and for having a high standard. I agree that I need better resources. Perhaps I can find someone in Cambodia to talk to. I have found only one academic document so far, and haven't checked it yet. For the moment, before I dig into the sources, I am just trying to sort out all the instruments. They are difficult, both because of language issues and because of imprecision of local use of terms for instruments. It makes finding a simple definitive word a battle, and I've had to delete and rename and restart pages. I will certainly purse non-blog sources if I can find them.

SkyGazer 512 Just to let you know, I already had to rearrange article names, once I checked the academic source. It turns out there are two Cambodian instruments with nearly identical names (in English at least) that don't translate well. I'll let you tag them as needed, but the two articles are now Kong mon and Kong mong. The Thai instruments are nearly identical.Jacqke (talk) 19:23, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Hey Jacqke. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner; pings don't work if you get them wrong the first time, you have to either resign or ping the pingee again in the edit summary in order for it to go through. Anyways, yeah, for obscure subjects like this, it's often very difficult to find reliable sources covering them in-depth, and I appreciate that you're willing to find what you can to create these articles. Unfortunately, I'm on mobile atm so I can't really look at the new source deeply, which I apologize for, but in short, if the PDF provides significant coverage and seems reliable enough, there should be no issue with removing the tag. I'll look into this more when I get home; perhaps I'll be able to scrape up some more sources. Cheers, --SkyGazer 512 Oh no, what did I do this time? 19:34, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
The PDF looks good enough. I've removed the tag for now. However, more sources for verification would certainly be great, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. I've also reviewed Kong mon, and tagged it is a stub. Happy editing!--SkyGazer 512 Oh no, what did I do this time? 23:52, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Roneat thong moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, Roneat thong, does not have enough sources and citations as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. — Newslinger talk 16:12, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello.

Thank you for your contributions to the Pierrot page. Unfortunately, they're misplaced: they belong in the early 20th-century sections of the page, not the 19th-century sections, so I will move them, if you have no objections.

The Bad Shepherds[edit]

You are clearly extremely well-versed in the usage and development of the mandolin and mandola, but I wonder if you are familiar with the above named outfit (now sadly defunct). I was lucky enough to see The Bad Shepherds twice in concert. Ade Edmondson played both of those instruments to a more than competent level, but the virtuoso instrumentation of Troy Donockley and Andy Dinan brought the ensemble together. The originality of performing predominately punk rock and new wave music on traditional instruments was, to my ears, a real treat. If you are unaware of them, then any of their performance pieces on YouTube, or wherever, may interest you. Maybe, just maybe, Edmondson at least deserves listing under [Category:British mandolinists]. Regards,

FULBERT (talk) 13:51, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

FULBERT I appreciate your looking over the History of the mandolin article. I had to split it from Mandolin due to that article being too long. I agree that the intro needs work and I will do that, if someone else doesn't tackle it before I get to it. Regarding the photos, I am not sure. I know that Wikipedia often tends to be sparse. I have tried to pick images targeted to content. The content covers more than a thousand years of obscure history, and if one looks in one of the encyclopedias (Groves Dictionary of Musical Instruments), they have adapted a similarly photo-heavy approach to deal with lute family and violin/fiddle family instruments). I also understand that my liking of content could be emotional attachment as creator, and if enough editors say I put too much in, then I will cull the images. I tried to use the images to chunk information (photos with photos in a box). Maybe this is not a good approach; I don't know. I appreciate your input and will consult you after I get some changes made. Jacqke (talk) 10:26, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I think the images are helpful in this article Jacqke, and it is more an issue of placement and perhaps too many images that then distract, rather than add to and support, the text. You may want to check out the suggestions in MOS:IMAGES for some guidance and suggestions. I agree with you that images are important in this topic, so clarifying them and using them to add to the information is most ideal. --- FULBERT (talk) 21:57, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mandolins in North America[edit]

Hello Jacqke,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Mandolins in North America for deletion, because it seems to be copied from another source, probably infringing copyright.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. Thanks!

SportingFlyer T·C 05:25, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

@SportingFlyer:, I am shocked. I have spent a great deal of time researching for that article. I don't understand what material is copyrighted that you are referring to. If so, then it can certainly be modified without killing the entire article. The first indication I had of a problem was the notice that the article was deleted. How about letting me know you spotted a problem? What is to be done?
@SportingFlyer: @Jimfbleak:

Sending this to both people who I saw involved in the deletion. Need conversation. Need it reversed.

I got a shock when I got home from work tonight. An article that I spent years researching was taken down. I don't understand what copyright was broken, but if there was some copyrighted material, surely that can be taken out without killing the article. I have spent a great deal of time getting quotes right and indicating where material came from. I paraphrase and rewrite and tell who said what. Simply seeing the article go away without getting the chance to redress any complaints (or even know there was a problem with my work) is very discouraging. I have been very active on Wikipedia, but I still don't know where to begin to talk to anyone about this.

Two pages were mentioned as unambiguous copyright infringements. The first <acousticmusic.org/research/guitar-information/guitars-stringed-instruments-general-information> is actually a copy of the Mandolins in the United States article, when it was part of the Mandolin article. I wrote that material!

The second cited was a conversation on MandolinCafe <https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/threads/114005-Who-was-the-first-American-mandolin-manufacturer/page3>. I started that conversation as part of my research for this article. The material said to be a copyright infringement was a quote on MandolinCafe of a paragraph from from Wikipedia:

"Mandolin awareness in the United States blossomed in the 1880s, as the instrument became part of a fad that continued into the mid-1920s.[57][58] According to Clarence L. Partee a publisher in the BMG movement (banjo, mandolin and guitar), the first mandolin made in the United States was made in 1883 or 1884 by Joseph Bohmann, who was an established maker of violins in Chicago.[201] Partee characterized the early instrument as being larger than the European instruments he was used to, with a "peculiar shape" and "crude construction," and said that the quality improved, until American instruments were "superior" to imported instruments.[201] At the time, Partee was using an imported French-made mandolin.[201] [59] By the year 1900 mandolin sales constituted 10.6 percent of the nation's "small goods" musical instrument sales, less than the 21.3 percent that music boxes held and more than the guitar's 9.6 percent.[202] The mandolin also outsold zithers, "Apollo harps" and autoharps at 8.6 percent and brass instruments for bands at 7.5 percent of total sales.[202]"

A simple check in the history of the Mandolin article will show the above material being created, with all the first drafts, typos and corrections.

That was me on MandolinCafe, quoting what I had just written on Wikipedia for the article! If there are any other areas, please tell me.

Please speedy undelete this article!!!!Jacqke (talk) 05:09, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

@Jacqke: I have just seen this, can't respond completely in this moment, will respond soon, but please note I tagged this as a copyvio following up from new page patrol. SportingFlyer T·C 05:32, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
@SportingFlyer: I understand. I had to spin it off from the Mandolin article because it had gotten too big. Also History of Mandolins and Mandolin playing traditions worldwide. I appreciate that you did what you did when you saw it. I just discovered a straight lift from someone's research paper, while writing the current article in my sandbox. One suggestion...it took me a lot of looking before I found out what you had seen; the links to the pages were only found in one place, and after the article was deleted, I couldn't see those links. Once I did, I was able to examine and figure out what happened. I'll make mention on the talk page of those links for the future. I never realized that working in two places at once (Mandolin Cafe and here) could cause that kind of conflict; I'll need to be more emphatic when I quote.Jacqke (talk) 12:49, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
@Jacqke: As I noted on the other talk page, there were several different websites with high to low level copying. I would recommend running the article through Earwig once it's restored - not the only tool used, but you can get a sense of what text lives elsewhere, and incorporate that into the talk page statement. Good luck, sorry for the inconvenience. SportingFlyer T·C 17:22, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Antony[edit]

Thanks @Jacqke for yr encouragement. Actually I am quite busy with my college works. I will help contribute other Cambodian related articles that lacked the information. I am bilingual, Khmer is my native and English is my second language, so I can translate and understand well or what should be translate or what is a proper translations should be. Google translate might gives a wrong translation. Be careful with that. Actually there are many research papers regarding the articles I edited and expanded as well as other Cambodian related articles on Wikipedia, however, those research papers or scholarly articles haven't been translated into English that's why many information is lacked on Wikipedia article. I'll try my best in my free times adding the necessary information regarding the articles I can help. Seriously, I am quite concerned regarding the Copyrights policy of Wikipedia after getting alerted as I afraid I might be blocked from editing by Wikipedia haha. Anyway, will help as much as i can in my free time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Antony Willianson (talkcontribs) 12:08, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Antony Willianson You have done well; copyright is a constant focus, and you are aware of it now. I have had many issues with translators and have to keep my writing very simple when I use Khmer, Thai or Chinese sources. I asked, because I like asking native language speakers occaisional questions.
When you have time, would you re-read the pinpeat article. I worked on the history section for sentence flow; I was confused about when the pin and pinpeat came to Cambodia. Was it during the Funan kingdom (1st-6th centuries)? My other question-- you wrote that 250 songs (or a list of songs) was found on the street after the fall of the Khmer Rouge. Can you say more about that discovery? It is a great fact and really needs a source (even if that source is a blog).
CHEERS, Jacqke (talk) 17:05, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Jacqke for yr response. The history of pinpeat can be traced back with the introduction of Pin in Cambodia or the Indianization process in Southeast Asia which mean the early Funan era.

So to understand more about the history of pinpeat we have to track the history of pin in Cambodia which was used as a premiere instrument in Pinpeat orchestra or literally pin gave the name to the historical pinpeat ensemble. Although pin has been absent for hundreds of years and now being revived and re-accompanied with other Pinpeat instruments, the ensemble is called as Pinpeat as a remembrance of its past. However, the earliest surviving depiction of Pin (harp) was carved on a temple at Sambor Prey Kuk (UNESCO) at the end of the Funan era which is in the begining of Chenla era (7th CE). However, according to a record (I cant find the direct source, will add as reference if i found) but was quoted in many articles and research papers, there was a mention of group of musicians namedPinpangsimilar to Pinpeat, which used Pin-an instrument introduced from ancient India during the Funan era that's why many researchers believed that Pinpeat is probably established at least during the Funan era (1sth-6th CE). Hope u can understand my explanation. I will try to make the text flow when I am free or u can help me as well.

About that 250 plus list of Pinpeat song/ musics were discovered on the street of Phnom Penh when the capital was liberated in 1979. This document was published in a Newpaper in the similar years. I try to find the primary source as well. Note that during the Khmer Rouge, countless documents were destroyed, even the Reamker's (Cambodian Ramayana) poem and large part of its story description havent revived or discovered yet as they were lost in this tragedy as well. As I remember, the list of Pinpeat Song here was posted by a blog or a writers which cant be cited when I was adding this part, I will try to put the reference later. However,this source is very significance because It is a rare surviving document regarding the pinpeat musics list which were lost in the tragedy only some of them are being revived, the rest remained only name. The list are all in Khmer (I romanized) and I translated some of their title, I will try to translate the rest into English as well, but it takes time.

Message me if u want to have any verification or question. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Antony Willianson (talkcontribs) 09:48, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Antony Willianson, I need to work with the text for a bit; my additions are starting to mess with the flow of the history section.

File permission problem with File:Harper's Ferry U.S. Model 1803 rifle.JPEG[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Harper's Ferry U.S. Model 1803 rifle.JPEG. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or

You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

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.

Hello Magog the Ogre
Hoping you might have an suggestion. I submitted the image in 2009, now up for deletion. Fair enough...I never secured written permission at the time. The copyright holder agreed free use over the phone, as long as credit to his comoany was attached to the image.
I am going to approach the copyright holder again to get written permission. What is the easiest way for him to confirm consent? If he reaffirms the permission he gave over the phone, I don't want to scare him away with a complicated process.Jacqke (talk) 21:38, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Sure. Does this person have access to email? That would make this a lot easier. You can send that person an email with a form to fill, and you can forward that email to our OTRS team. The form is here: c:Commons:Email templates. Magog the Ogre (tc) 23:25, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
