Wikipedia Day 2018 video[edit]

Hi Jim - I finally have a weekend devoted to Wiki learning and writing and came upon my first difficulty. I couldn't find a link to the video recording of WikiDay 2018 where it should be somewhere on the event page Do you think it is there - I don't know how to do an exhaustive search Hannah Silverman (talk) 04:38, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

I have been patiently waiting. They should be at Media related to Wikipedia Day 2018 NYC videos at Wikimedia Commons but that's empty so far. As it happened I was dining with Wikipedians including @Bluerasberry: a few hours ago and the videos have been delayed getting there because Wikimedia Commons only allows a few rare video formats and they haven't been converted yet from ordinary format. However, most of the videos are at the Livestream site here. The one I shot, no, not yet, but that was for software writers anyway. Doing anything with video, I learned when I gave it a try, takes a lot of time. Would you like me to pedal downtown this weekend to a restaurant or library to meet? I need the exercise, having recently recovered from more than a month of illness. Especially fun if you can invite another new editor. Jim.henderson (talk) 05:05, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Oh, I forgot to ping @Hannah Silverman: to make sure you get a little red alert bell at the top of your page.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited World War II by country, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Mobile warfare (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

pictures on a non-published article[edit]

Cecile Chong wikipediq IMG 6329

I tried to put a personally created picture (Cecile Chong wikipedia IMG_6329.jpg) on the sandbox material on this future article material which I am not submitting until better citations as we talked. it seems wiki commons wont let me do until there is an actual stub. Is that right?Nudgol (talk) 02:39, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Nice to hear from you again so soon, @Nudgol: In all my years I never heard of such a restriction, but there's always a first time. Incidentally it's easier if you can link to the various things in question, though it was easy to see that what you are talking about is User:Nudgol/sandbox. A little investigation turned up File:Cecile Chong wikipediq IMG 6329.jpg. Oh, of course you don't know that odd little insider's trick of the two brackets and colon; silly forgetful me. Anyway with the Edit Source you can see the line at the top of this section which invokes that picture. You can paste that line into your sandbox; I'll let you do it rather than put it in myself. You should also look in your Commons watchlist to see what happens to the picture; sometimes they are deleted because of minor errors that could easily be corrected if only the author noticed the warning.
Incidentally tonight, Tuesday, I'll be dining with a few old friends at the Park Plaza Restaurant [1] in Brooklyn Heights, convenient to Downtown Brooklyn subways, 7 PM in the back of the restaurant. We'll bring our laptops and cameras and discuss local history and putting pictures in Wikipedia, among other topics. You and others watching this page will be welcome; there's always a spare table in case we get an unexpected crowd. Good Wi-Fi and good food, too. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:42, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

accumulator[edit]

good day.

in this edit you added a beautiful photo of Walther calculator. however, the main visible feature is not the accumulator (which is partially shown at the lower right section), but the "rotor", a row of pinwheels that activate the accumulator. because it's such a beautiful machine, i'm replacing it with another photo from the same photographer, where the accumulator is a bit more prominent.

Hello! After the successful pilot program by Wikimedia India in 2015, Wiki Loves Food (WLF) is happening again in 2018 and this year, it's going International.

Event coordinator granted[edit]

Wikipedia Event coordinator.svg

After reviewing your request for the "eventcoordinator" permission, I have enabled the flag on your account. Keep in mind these things:

  • The event coordinator right removes the limit on the maximum number of new accounts that can be created in a 24-hour period.
  • The event coordinator right allows you to temporarily add the "confirmed" permission to newly created accounts. You should not grant this for more than 10 days.
  • The event coordinator right is not a status symbol. If it remains unused, it is likely to be removed. Abuse of the event coordinator right will result in its removal by an administrator.
  • Please note, if you were previously a member of the "account creator" group, your flag may have been converted to this new group.

If you no longer require the right, let me know, or ask any other administrator. Drop a note on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of the event coordinator right. Happy editing! — xaosflux Talk 21:54, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

New Page Patrol?[edit]

Hi Jim.henderson,

I've recently been looking for editors to invite to join New Page Patrol, and from your editing history, I think you would be a good candidate. Reviewing/patrolling a page doesn't take much time but it requires a good understanding of Wikipedia policies and guidelines; we could use some additional help from an experienced user like yourself. The flag might also come in handy with your event coordination activities.

Would you please consider becoming a New Page Reviewer? (After gaining the flag, patrolling is not mandatory. One can do it at their convenience). But kindly read the tutorial before making your decision. If you choose to apply, you can drop an application over at WP:PERM/NPR.

Cheers, and hope to see you around, — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 13:04, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

I am honored, @Insertcleverphrasehere: but have already bitten off more than I can chew. More of my time and edits now go to pictures in Wikimedia Commons, another of the many corners of the Wiki-empire that need more attention from us experienced editors. I hope the recent ban on new articles without an account is a help. Jim.henderson (talk) 19:03, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes ACTRIAL has been an enormous help. If you are busy elsewhere that is totally fine, and uploading of images to commons is something that we also need more of, so thanks for that work! See you around and thanks for your work on Wikipedia. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 19:17, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
