Help with columns[edit]

check-mark
This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

I would like to divide the Personnel section in Casey Abrams (album) into three columns, but have never done anything like this before. I took a look at Help:Columns, but found that page to be very confusing. I've also tried looking at other articles that have done this sort of thing, but couldn't quite figure out what they were doing. Is someone able to explain to me how I would do this, or at the very least, point me to a well written guide? --Jpcase (talk) 16:24, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Use {{colbegin}} to start using columns, {{colend}} when you're done, so for three columns you may want to do the following:
{{col-begin}}
{{col-break}}
Your text
{{col-break}}
Your text
{{col-break}}
Your text.
{{col-end}}

I believe the use of {{lorem}} may have been confusing you. If not, ask for further help on my talk page. --I am Kethrus Talk to me! 16:47, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

@Kethrus: Thank you! Yes, {{lorem}} is what was confusing me, because while I assumed that it was simply a place-holder nonsense word, I thought that I was supposed to copy over the text in the grey box to the top of the article section, replacing "lorem" with the first word of each column. --Jpcase (talk) 17:19, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for your offer to help out with phab:T7875. Jon (the product manager) needs people like you to help him. He's got technical resources, but he needs real people who can share their opinions about the work as it develops and remind him about the things that you need. Whenever you think of anything, you can contact him (or User:Melamrawy (WMF), my teammate) and let them know what's on your mind. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:33, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your help and the links! I am very appreciative since I haven't been editing Wikipedia for very long. Ptebwwong (talk) 23:13, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for the barnstar Ptebwwong! I'm very glad to help! :)
I've just been going over the "Philanthropy" section and am wondering if you could let me know where you found the information about McCreery participating in the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game every year since 2011. The webpage that you added as a reference doesn't actually say anything about McCreery - if you got this information from another page of the same website, then it would be best to add each individual page as a reference, where applicable, rather than simply adding the homepage as a reference for everything in the sentence. --Jpcase (talk) 16:59, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

DYK nomination of Casey Abrams (album)[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Casey Abrams (album) at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 06:54, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

This nomination needs action, otherwise it will unfortunately be closed as rejected. Please try to give it some attention in the next few days. Harrias talk 09:56, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
The closure will be happening later today or tomorrow, unless we hear from you on the nomination template before then. I do hope you respond before the nomination closes. BlueMoonset (talk) 15:52, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
@OccultZone: @BlueMoonset: @Harrias: I'm very sorry for the delayed response. I would have liked to go through with this nomination, but simply don't have the time right now to address such a broad issue as the one that was raised by the reviewer. That said, I'm not sure whether that issue (having too many quotes) is one that should hold back the article in the DYK process. I've never nominated an article for DYK before, so I'm not familiar with the expectations, but I thought that the main requirement was simply for the article to be referenced and neutral. If you think that the article could be accepted without having to rewrite anything, then I would have the time to continue with this. Otherwise, I'm afraid that I will have to let the nomination be closed. --Jpcase (talk) 16:02, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

After ec[edit]

"After ec" is wiki-jargon for "after edit conflict", ie an indication that RomanSpa and I were answering your question simultaneously and therefore any overlap and/or contradictions in the replies are inadvertent (since we were unaware of what the other wrote, when we composed our own response), and not included to make a point. Does that make sense? Posting here instead of the on the refdesk itself, in order not to distract discussion from your original question. Cheers. Abecedare (talk) 02:10, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Re: Geraldine (2000 film)[edit]

Thank you for starting this article. I hope you don't mind, but I added the article to Wikipedia:Wiki Loves Pride 2016/Results, which tracks new and improved LGBT-related content as part of an ongoing Wiki Loves Pride campaign. If you create or improve other LGBT articles between now and the end of June, feel free to update this page with your contributions. Thanks again! ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:19, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

@Another Believer: I have to confess that I wasn't aware of WP:Wiki Loves Pride, and technically, it appears that Geraldine (2000 film) was moved into the main space a couple days before the beginning of the campaign - so the timing is just a coincidence. But I'm glad to hear that my contribution lines up with your area of interest. You're certainly welcome to mention the article over there. Best of luck in your continued efforts with the campaign, and thanks for taking notice! --Jpcase (talk) 15:49, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

The Black Island[edit]

There does not appear to be a page for that destination. The revert links to a dab page. Which is meant: East Sussex County Council, West Sussex County Council, or Sussex County, Delaware? Mannanan51 (talk) 01:42, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

@Mannanan51: I'm not sure what is meant, but the topic still seems to be one that would demand a link to "somewhere". If we don't want to do the disambiguation page, then how would you feel about simply linking to the article on Sussex, or perhaps to be even more specific, the Governance section of that article? Another alternative - History of local government in Sussex. --Jpcase (talk) 12:58, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
Any would do. Mannanan51 (talk) 18:15, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

The Black Island[edit]

Hi there - I removed the link to Sussex County Council because the context is artwork within a piece of fiction. I suppose it could be linked to Sussex County Council (disambiguation) but I don't see the point. Also please note that Sussex is linked in the first paragraph of the synopsis. PKT(alk) 13:58, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

@PKT: I believe that the link already points to the disambiguation page. See the same-named section above, in which I discussed the matter with another editor. If you want to change the link, so that it points to the Governance section of the Sussex article or the History of local government in Sussex article then that would be fine. But I don't see why we would remove the link entirely - the link isn't for the sign itself (which I agree, would be pointless), nor is it to the county as a whole (which I agree, would be redundant). It's to the County Council, which doesn't receive a link anywhere else in the article, and which is the sort of obscure, real-world reference that most readers will most likely know little (or nothing) about; thus, making a link useful. --Jpcase (talk) 14:38, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Le Building[edit]

Attempted translations of your two short reviews:

1st piece: This was written in 2005 and I'd omit the first sentence, referring to TV series of the time in the "Neighbours" genre and to a defunct celebrity website.
...[Le Building] lasts just long enough to let out a big resounding laugh, meanwhile refreshing the neurons a little... [omit "in this torrid summer"]. Its five creators, Marco Nguyen, Pierre Perifel, Xavier Ramonede, Olivier Staphylas and Rémi Zaarour, all took an equal part in its production, which lasted four months - from December 2004 to April 2005. Le Building has been screened at the Annecy International Festival of Animated Film ... [going on to offer weblinks]
2nd piece:
Le Building is one of the wonderful things that we are delighted to find now and again on the internet. Marco Nguyen, Pierre Perifel, Xavier Ramonede, Olivier Staphylas, and Remi Zaarour are the creators of this short film which, apart from its excellent animation, offers brilliant characters and a very enjoyable story. In barely 70 frenetic seconds it presents a complex and perfectly structured scenario.

SpongeBob SquarePants[edit]

Hello Jpcase, and thank you for all of the improvements you have made to the SpongeBob SquarePants article. I restored the "Voice actors" section on the page today after it was removed and replaced with the bare-bones text from last month. The edit description you left indicated you didn't want to keep the expansions on the article because the same sources and info are used on List of SpongeBob SquarePants cast members. However, the sources and content from the version you restored is also all taken from the cast members article. The expansions are all sourced so I don't see any reason to remove everything, especially since it really hinders the quality of the section. Sorry to undo your edit and please respond if you have any concerns. SBSPfan (talk) 06:18, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@SBSPfan: Hey, thanks for the message! I totally agree with you that the Voice Actors section should be expanded from the "bare-bones" version that was around before your involvement. Personally, I don't like seeing the same exact phrasing used in multiple articles - so the edit summary saying that you had copied content from the cast members article made me a little wary. But it looks like you made at least some changes to the transferred content, so that may not actually be too much of a problem (perhaps we can discuss further).
My main concern is that some of the info you copied over is potentially inaccurate. One of the things that I noticed back when I first started editing the SpongeBob SquarePants article a few years ago is that while most everything had been paired up with a source, many of the sources being used didn't actually contain the information for which they were being cited. The Tom Kenny radio interview is an example - in that, Kenny mentions that he had used the SpongeBob voice for a minor character in Rocko, but he doesn't specify who that character is. I've gone through countless sources while editing the SpongeBob article and have yet to come across anything identifying that minor character as a "female alligator named Al". So quite a bit of information had to be resourced - and some information had to be removed entirely. I never got around to correcting sources in any other SpongeBob articles though. It may be that all of the other information you added is properly sourced - but until someone goes through and checks each source (thoroughly), we ought to treat all of the information in List of SpongeBob SquarePants cast members as potentially inaccurate.
I do appreciate all of the work that you've been doing though! I'm not sure how long I'll be involved with editing the SpongeBob SquarePants article, as I've dabbled with it on-and-off for quite awhile now and don't want to invest too much more time in it. But I hope to make a least a few more changes and additions - hopefully we can help each other out! --Jpcase (talk) 01:35, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for looking into that, Jpcase! I re-checked the interview as well and there is no mention of "Al" or any name for the minor character he voiced, so I removed the statement from both articles. It took a while to look the section over again but all of the other information under "Voice actors" does agree with the listed references. I don't know for sure, but the unsourced sentence about the exact identity of Kenny's character was probably added as vandalism long ago and never removed. SBSPfan (talk) 05:07, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
@SBSPfan: Wow - I'm impressed that you were able to go through all of the sources so fast! Thanks for taking that on!
Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if the SpongeBob voice really did originate with a female alligator character named Al - but if so, the identification was likely made by a fan, rather than by a professional source, and as such, would have to be considered Original Research. A lot of the improperly cited information that I encountered in the SpongeBob article turned out to be true; it just required a lot of digging around, until I could find a useable source.
If all of the other information that you added checks out okay, then I'm alright with leaving it in. I'd still like to see any instances of copied phrasing changed up - but that's just a personal pet peeve. So far as I'm aware, there isn't any Wikipedia rule saying that you can't copy and paste content from one article to another. Depending on how long I stay involved with the SpongeBob article this go round, I may consider rephrasing or removing some of the content from that section. But that's not my top priority right now. Overall, I'm pretty happy with your additions.
By the way, I see that you're new to Wikipedia as of this year - so I just want to say welcome! It looks like you're getting the hang of things, but if you have any questions, just let me know. I'm not the most skilled or accomplished of editors by any means, but I've been around for awhile and am always happy to lend a hand. :) --Jpcase (talk) 14:38, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

Getting caught in a block[edit]

See my response to your note at WP:HD. Since all came back fine at the IP check request, I've granted you IP block exemption. However, this won't help with the global block (it's only good for the block that was imposed in May), so you need global IPBE too. I'll request it for you. Nyttend (talk) 03:02, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Clic & Kat[edit]

Hello, Jpcase. I wanted to let you know that I’m proposing an article that you started, Clic & Kat, for deletion because I don't think it meets our criteria for inclusion. If you don't want the article deleted:

  1. edit the page
  2. remove the text that looks like this: {{proposed deletion/dated...}}
  3. save the page

Also, be sure to explain why you think the article should be kept in your edit summary or on the article's talk page. If you don't do so, it may be deleted later anyway.

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